Woodward, right tackle for Tulane, showed np well, but was unable to accomplish much. Tulane's main strength seemed to lie In working the forward pass which waa dona aeveral times successfully but which counted for so considerable gains. Twice, however, Tulane played on Alabama'a five yard line and waa only kept from aeorlng through deaparata efforts on the part of "thin red line." Tulane played a fierce gams In every quarter and was only hampered by the lack of available substitutes. Alabama used substitutes freely but waa pen allied continuously throughot the game for various reasons. The lineup and summary. Alabama oattlons Tulane " Cargile r. e. Oakes Burks r.

Survey and Plaster Feature. For the Hieh School, Spivey and Plaster played a great game, while Davidson too did some good work for his team. Most of the gains which were made by the High School was r ade with Davidson carrying the ball. The High School attempted the for-vard pass on several occasions, but not one time did it work successfully, v.hile twice Jones, Marlon's left halfback Intercepted the attempted forward pass and made a twenty-yard n.n, but was downed about five yards from the goal line. ' Gamble, who' played a star game for the Fifth District Agrloultural School of Wetumpka last year was tha Inflr-vldiial star of the game. His work yesterday afternoon through a broken field was about the best that has been seen in Montgomery during .recent ears, and while he was the lightest man on the Marlon team, to. him do they owe their victory. Every time he got the ball he would advance it and on one occasion he ran through practically the entire High School team before he was finally downed, iv hen he had nearly an open field bo-fore him. Fans Applnud Gamble. It was his playing that was given most of the applaud by the Montgomery football fans who were present He would carry the ball itown the field, making runs ranging from five to fifteen yards on nearly every down and and when the ball was placed nearly on the High School line the signal for a line plunge would be given and Jones shoved over for the touchdown. While his offensive work was great he was rather off in kicking, as he succeeded in kicking but one goal out of three after a touchdown had been made, the two times that he failed being miserable attempts, the ball not rising over four feet from the ground. Davidson was hurt In the third, period and Hart was sent In to relieve him. Coach Laurie Btated after the game that he was well pleased with the work of his men against their heavier opponents and was gratified at the Improvement in their game over that of last Friday week against the Wetumpka Aggies.

ATHENS. OA., Oct. 31. Heavily outweighed by the Mississippi A. and M. eleven, the Georgia eleven succumbed to the onslaught of the visitors In the last quarter of the game by the score of 9 to 0. This Is the first game the Red and Black have lost on Sanford Field for three years. The ball seesawed from one end of the Held to the other. The Georgians being especially apt at falling on fumbled punts and passes of their opponents. The game was frequently marred by successive squabbles between players and officials. ' k t The third quarter ended with the pigskin In the Misslsslppian's possession on Georgia's twenty-yard line. On the first play of the quarter Mc-Arthur playing halfback, ploughed through the entire Georgia eleven and planted the oval under the uprights. Potter failed to kick goal. Several minutes later Jones, substituted for Captain Kinney, planted his toe be- hind the ball for the twenty-three yard line and sent it directly between the bars, a pretty drop kick. Kimball, at left half for the visi-tois, was head and shoulders above any member of his team. Time after time he would clip off ten yards gain through center and off tackle. On the def naive his work was brilliant. Captain Kinney returned punts well r.nd the whole line was impregnable. Captain Paddock shouldered the brunt of the work for Cunningham's crew and did It well. Practically unaided by interference, he made most of Georgia's gains. Powell, In his first game of the season, was next to Paddock in ground ga-rlng. Line-up and summary: Miss. A. and M. Position. Wells center . . . Georgia. Henderson . Garmany , . .

II Har vard defeated Michigan, 7 to 0, here today, In a football gam almost devoid of spectacular flay and confined to conservative attack and defense. Twenty-flvs thousand spectators wit nessed sixty minutes of hard fought icrlmmage In which straight football predominated throughout The general advance was achieved by a series of Itne plunges, varied by an occasional end run. Harvard showed to better advantage than the Westerners, displaying stronger defense and striking with savage rapidity and skill In the second period when the solitary score of the Bam was made. Both elevens appeared to possess a stronger attack than defense, although the Crimson Una and secondary defense held like a stone wall when the Wolverines twice penetrated Harvard's last -yard line. A disappointing feature from the spectators' standpoint was the absence of the thrilling open attack It was thought Tost would uncover. Michigan attempted only one forward pass and this was Intercepted. As If further to upset the ante-game forecast, the Crimson used four, of which three were successfully carried through. Michigan used a rushing line of attack. The campaign worked well between the twenty yard lines but It lacked the scoring punch once the team had carried the ball within the shadow of the Crimson goal bar. Harvard twice held Michigan on or Inside her 5-yaxd line. Harvard forced a touchdown and the resultant goal in the second period. Obtaining the ball at mid-field on a Michigan punt. Harvard orened the scoring advance with a series of line plunges, and knifing runs, piercing the Wolverines' line for consistent gains. On Michigan's 30-yard line the Western eleven held for two downs. Temporarily checked, Quarterback Logan called for a forward pass, which perfectly executed, put the ball on the visitors' 19-yard line. Again Harvard went to line bucking and by cleverly Connie Mack Asks Waivers On Bender, Plank And Coombs Atheletics' Manager Says He This Time But for the Was Dickering PHILADELPHIA, PA., Oct 31 Connie Mack, Manager of the Philadelphia Athletics, announced today that he had asked waivers on Pitchers Bender, Plank and Coombs. "I would not have asked for waivers at this time but for the fact that one of them told me he had been dickering with the Federal League," Connie Mack said. The Philadelphia manager added that one of the pitchers .had Informed him of receipt of an offer from the Federal League which was so large that he did not think the local management would meet it He would not disclose the name of the pitcher to whom the offer had been made. The three r'tchers have played prominent parts In World's Series baseball games. Plank, acknowledged as one of the seratest left-handed pitchers. Joined the Athletics In 1901 and figured in the winning of six American League pennants His best performance in a World's Series was In 1913 when he won from the New York Giants, allowing the National Leaguers two hits n the final game. Bender Joined the team in 1902. He won games in all of the World's Series except in the series with the Boston BrRves this year.
