TfT .t - ' ; " - ' - - w t ' Br C EE AST GORE Decatur moved out ofi North Alabama yesterday highly touted as last year's champions and presenting a strong team this year: Last night they moved back to their old stomping ground a beaten and broken team. Lanier .hadn't expected a hard game and an easy came it was. The final score of 33 to 0 just about tells th story of how superior the Blue and White warriors were. Lanier went Into the game at Cramton Bowl yesterday expecting to win with ease and there was come concern among local supporters- as to whether or not the locals would be over-confident They were not. Or e least this was one time that over- confidence did not spell defeat i Runninr Attack Strong Decatur presented a fighting team but they were unable to cope with the strong running attack which the Poets unfurled. Two passes were tried during the entire game by the local eleven and both of these were completed. Very few end runs were attempted. The greater part of the gains made by Cain et Bl were on off -tackle plays and straight Una smashes. Lanier was never forced to extend Itself, straight football prevailed through-out Cain was outstanding with his great running and kicking,,: Twice he got off punts for over 60 yards, one traveling for -5S yards and the other barely missing the 50-yard marker. On one or two other attempts he made 40 or more yards. Shackelford made several pretty gains through the line and off tackle. Williams gained as much yardage as any of them with the possible exception of Capt. John Cain. The one fault with Williams was. that he could not hold the ball. Time after time he would reel off a nice, gain and then fumble. Several times he recovered but Decatur profited by his errors on many plays. With more practice and training he may become accustomed to handling the oval and when he does he will knake the Poets a good Score In first Few' Minutes At the opening of .the game Moore kicked off to Capt Cain who returned the ball to his oum 38-yard line.' Williams made six yards off tackle. Williams made 12 more yards and first down! Brannon made three through the center of the line. Williams made five over left tackle. Williams went over center for one yard. Brannon made two and another first down. Lanier was mrachlng down the field for touchdown. Cain carried the bail eight yards -on his first run. -Cain fumbled, on the next play and Moore reeov ered but the referee had already blown his 4 whistle and it was another first down: Brannon made one yard over center. Cain, made 11 yards off left tackle and first down. Williams made two and placed the ball on the five-yard line; Cain took the pigskin around right end for the first touchdown. It came within four minutes of the opening of the game. Moseley failed to kick goal. This score seemed to take the heart out of the visitors and they never made a serious threat after that. -. , Linemen Are Brilliant Crosland and Cone broke through time and again to stop Decatur backs for no gains or throw them for losses. Brannon and Cain were especially outstanding in backing up the line. They halted many an attempt to drive over center and guard. Big Joe Cardwell was immovable In the; line. Very few, if any, gains were made over his side of the line. He broke through several times and nailed the-man before he reached the line of scrimmage. ... . Cardwell, Cone and Crosland broke through and blocked a couple of punts thai Dobbins was trying to get off. It seemed the Decatur line could not block the big fellows out. J v Decatur's Stars - Bishop and Cottrell were the best ground gainers for the up-staters when they managed to gain. Dobbins got off some nice punts when he wasn't rushed. Toward the last part of the game he would have to adopt a position from 15 to 20 yards back of the line of scrimmage to get off his kicks with safety. The Lanier . forwards were coming through that fast Lanier made its second touchdown on a long pass Cain to Turner that was good for 36 yards. Bib "Wu" nabbed the ball in his outstretched hands, shook his head and outran about five visitors for the score, Moseley kicked goal. On a punt from Cain to Bishop which the i Decatur "safety man fumbled, the Poets were: again placed in a position to score. Buffalo recovered the ball on Decatur's 21-yard line. Cain made one yard at center. Williams tore off a gain of eight yards and held the ball. Cain added four more and first down. It was goal to go. Wll-.llams took the ball on the next play and placed It on the six-inch line. Williams Fumbles On his next attempt he fumbled and it 'was covered by Sherman on his own three-yard lne. An attempted punt was blocked by" Davidson who fell on the ball back of the goal line. Moseley kicked goal. On a series of line bucks and off tackle plays Cain and his cohorts took the ball to the six-yard line where the Poet captain smashed the line for six yards and the score.

The Normal team will journey to Birmingham next Friday to meet th Birmingham-Southern rats Friday aft- noon. . By BRIAN BELL Associated Press Sports Writer NEW HAVEN, CONN, Oct 13 Tale's football team today followed the example of another notable group of athletes, 'rising from hospital beds and wheel chairs to decisively defeat the Uni versity of Georgia 21 to 6. The Ells were effective as the Yankees In the recent world series In using their crutches as clubs. Johnny Garvey was the Babe Ruth of the contest Read out of the game in advance on account of Illness, his name not even in the printed line-up distributed at the bowl, the elusive halfback was Tale's greatest gainer. He played briefly but his yardage per 'minute will take rank with sterling football perlor mances of ancient and modem history. He stepped off 60 yards in two plays' to count two touchdowns, one after a dash of 23 yards and the other as the result of a 37-yard sprint Georgia seemed stunned to see the cripples start behaving like athletes In very good health and before the visitors from classic Athens could arrange to do something about it the home team was off in front with a 7 to 0 lead. Georgia kicked to Tale and 75-yard parade started at once. In nine plays, with Garvey carrying the ball In seven of them, the ball was placed on Georgia's 23-yard line. Garvey then slanted off tackle, cut back and went all the way to" the first touchdown of the game. Oldt added the extra point with a place kick. The Georgia Bulldogs then showed that they too, a bite as well as a bark bv marching from the second kick-off to Tale's 12-yard line, an advance of more than 80 yards. McCrary, brawny back of the Athenians, bore the greater part of the burden, not only running well. but catching a pass to help his cause along. The big fellow then undid the sensational performance by fumbling and Kell fell on the ball for Tale. A Georgia lineman helped the Blue to its second touchdown. Lampe, a substitute, had assumed Garvey's responsi bilities when the weary half back left the game and by good running, he had driven the ball to Georgia's 15-yard line. The visitors stopped the attack there, three plays gaining but six yards. Miller then went back for a place kick. The kick was short and wide of the mark, but Georgia was declared off side and Tale took the ball on the four-yard line with four plays in which to make the touchdown. One was enough, Lnmpe going over without wasting an effort Miller's kick 'was Blocked "put visitors were again off side and the extra point was allowed. Rain Won't Stop Garvey A drizzling rain in the second period continued through the intermission and into the third but the rain, gathering drakness and uncertain footing, failed to slow Garvey up. The dashing half back started the second half and at once ran to Georgia's 42-yard line. Georgia picked up a five-yard off side penalty and on the next play, Garvey cut back after going off tackle and ran through the whole Southern team to score. Oldt again kicked the goal. Garvey was relieved after his second counter and Georgia at once threatened to score. Aided by. a 20-yard pass from Johnson to Mixon, the boys from Dixie went to the 11-yard line only to lose the ball pn downs. The weary McCrary was then taken out and Hooks, who had been more or less Inactive while McCrary was doing most of the ball carrying, showed that he, too, could cover ground in the face of opposition. Hooks tok 20, then eight and as the Oergia rooters sang "touchdown Georgia," he pulled up 17 yards from the goal. The Southern Bulldogs with slow but sure bucks found themselves on the one foot line on fourth down and Dudley went- over. The kick for point failed. The visitors, cheered by their touchdown and a few stirring notes of Dixie from the band, started another drive. The game ended before it could show a profit.

(Special) In a footbal game played . on home grounds Friday afternoon, the local team won from Ashford by a score of 52 to 0. Ashford was completely outclassed in every department but it waa the play of the line and blocking of the whole team that caused Midland City's overwhelming score. Church led the interference on every play and featured the game with his excellent blocking and line smashes. Most of the gains of the local team were made through the line. Up to date the local team has scored 143 points and their goal line has never been in danger in the three games play ed. The team Is inexperienced and only averages 130 pounds but the lack of weight Is made up In speed. Coach Moore announced that the next game will be with the Oeneva High team in Geneva next Friday. This, he says. will probably be the hardest game of the season. EVERGREEN PLAYS .WELL ' . IN DEFEATING BREWT0N ... EVERGREEN, ALA., Oct. 13.

Mlssisippl A. & M.'s Maroon eleven was a poor bulwark to stem the Crimson Tide here today, and the Alabama team ' surged over them to a 46 to 0 victory ' before a home-coming crowd.
