The Alabama defense against " plays from scrimmage was impenetrable, but they were not so tight against passes In spite of intensive drilling during the past week. The Tigers attempted SS passes, and made 15 of them good for 194 yards. Alabama's three completed out' of eight tries were good for 100 yards. Two of the Bewanee heaves were intercepted for touchdowns, however, The first score came as the climax to a 77-yard march, when Holm carried It 48 of them, and finally went over. Suther, Holm and Hicks pushed It down the field on straight football for the second a little later. Bkidmore added both extra points. Sewanee' marker was scored on three straight passes. The final, Schoolfleld to Piper, was good for 31 yards. A drive from midfleld saw Hicks go over on a double pass without an enemy laying a hand upon him, for the third touchdown. It was child's play for the Crimson regulars to gain yardage and Wade began to shoot in his substitutes. The Sewanee line was torn to shreds by the bg Tide regulars. The score was boosted to 28 points when Hicks heaved a 20-yard pass to campbell, who went 35 more behind the last white stripe. Earl Smith scored one of two touchdowns on Intercepted passes when he grabbed the ball on the Tiger's 26-yard line and managed to score. Schoolfleld passed to Piper,' who attempted a lateral pass to Autln. Autin dropped the ball and Smith grabbed it out of the atmosphere.

SENEGAS Associated Press Sports Writer CHAPEL HILL. N. C, Oct 27 Georgia Tech's Gold Tornado maintained its sweeping football pace here today, de feating a fighting North Carolina eleven, 20 to 7. Twenty thousand saw the terrific charges of Dunlap, Lumpkin, Thomason and Fitzgerald of the Gold and White eleven but found their own cheer in abundance during the final minutes as substitute halfback named Jackson threw passes, skirted ends and drove the line far down into scoring territory. ' It was Jackson who scored in the final period. The score came when the Yellow Jackets got the ball near mid-field and House and Wyrck, backs, plunged to the 40-yard stripe. Mash passed to Jackson on the 19-yard mark and then, following a couple of split bucks, Jackson shot short one to Wyrck on the 10-yard line. A penalty put the ball on the one-yard line and Jackson rammed over on the next play. Mash dropklcked goal. The game started like an all-Tech af fair, with Coach Alexander starting his second stringers. The game was barely four minutes old when Dunlap, sophomore halfback, loosed a long spiral to Tom Jones on the Blue's 35-yard line. Jones raced the remaining distance across the goal and Herron place-kicked wide. In the second quarter with the ball In mid-field, Dunlap of Georgia Tech passed to Schulman, quar terback, for nine yards. Lumpkin made It first down and Fitzgerald ran 37 more for a touchdown.

FEANK SMITH, Sport Editor MAE TIN EPEAR, Assistant c UNBEATEN ELEVEN ;e- McFaden's Team Displays Best Form Of Season In Scoring Fine Victory; Long Passes ' Work Well By FRANK SMITH It's been year and years since any football player, not a member of the Thomasville team, stepped across Thomasville goal line, so they say. It been even longer than that since an opposing team has gone so far as to win from the Bulldogs. Winning has become more or less s habit with Thomasville. Which all goes to show that yon can never be too certain. The Bulldogs came to town yesterday afternoon all primed and set for another victory. They had selected Cloverdale as the week-end nourishment But like another Bulldog team (Howard), that set out for a week end feast,' Thomasville 's canines were shocked to discover that the morsel they had picked failed utterly to agree with them. . Bull McFaden's snappy Crimson eleven won the game and the score was 39 to U. In winning the Souths tders displayed by far the best form exhibited by any football team at Cram ton Bowl this sea son. That covers lot of territory, Fine Air Game Cloverdale did something yesterday that they have been trying to do, with varying success, all season and that same was thethrowlng and catching of long forward passes. With Sam McGli- vary standing back of line that held superbly at all critical times the Crim sons took the sir. For time the grid-Iron resembled a miniature landing field for seppelins shadow of footballs fly ing through the air were thicker than Scotchmen at a bargain sale 6f one dollar bills. Thomasville was passed to death. Of the six Cloverdale touchdowns all but one came as- the direct or Indirect result of tosses through the ozone. You would have thought ft basketball game was In prog' ress the way those pigskins sailed. The visiting delegation didn't Just stand back and let Cloverdale throw pass es all afternoon, however. The Bulldogs also took to the air and they, too, un corked some plain and fancy heaves. All in all it was very agreeable afternoon for those who like their football In the ozone. Personally, your correspondent favors the air game when It Is well exe cuted. That same was done Saturday, Excellent Line Work . All the passing might serve In ft way to detract from the splendid work done by the Cloverdale line. That forward wan outcharged, outfought and outplayed the heavier visiting team from whistle to whistle. Not fault can be found with their work. They blocked and tackled like veteran collegians and their play was ft Joy to behold. All of them were in every play, both offensively and defensively. In the words of the Immortal Plato, them boys done noble and they cannot be ac corded too much praise. I must not overlook the play of several members of the enemy squadron, how' ever, for several bits of scintillating work was accomplished by them. In particular were the Messrs. Mosley, Hill and Powell In the game. Their presence was felt by some of the Crimsons, I am Inclined to believe. The visitors had a pair of backs who were also noticeable during the aft ernoon s frolicking. Their names were Klmbrell and Thomas. The latter gentle man is one of those large fellows and he alone was able to make an Impression on the Cloverdale line. MeGUvary Shines Bam McGllvary, perhaps, played the best game of his career. Sam did ft powerful lot. of snappy running and his throwing of the passes was long and accurate. Capt Tom Brown, who is called Sleepy for no apparent reason, was a considerable factor In the Crimsons' scoring. Thomas scored three touchdowns. Just at the start of the game Thomas ville got ft break that looked bad Indeed for the home forces. McGllvary unac countably fumbled the kickoff and Mos ley recovered It for Thomasville on the Crimsons' 25-yard line. A long pass put the oval ten yards closer but a fumble saved the day for Cloverdale.-There was no scoring in. the opening period and aft er this threat but little opportunity for any. Cloverdale gathered Itself together and played heads up football for the remainder of th period and Thomasville was unable to gain. Toward the end of the period the first of the Crimsons' successful passes was pulled, McGllvary tossing to Lucas for 30 yards. It put the ball on Thomasville' . 88-yard stripe but Thomasville got the ball again shortly thereafter. Another long pass as the quar ter ended, Sam throwing to Hansford, put the ball on Thomasville's 26-yard line. - Just after the second period started McGllvary, Brown and Cotton crashed over for the remaining distance and Mo-Olivary drop-kicked for the goal. Crimen Get Break A great break, aided to a large extent by the work of Watson and Hansford In crashing through the Thomasville ' line gave Cloverdale another touchdown mlnub later. ' These two lads broke through as Wil liams wa trylhg to punt from his 35-yard line, blocked the kick, and Watson picked It up and ran for. the remaining distance. McGllvary again added the extra point Cotton' interception of Williams's pas on hi own 42-yard line led to another Cloverdale counter In the same Inning. Another one of these long passes, McOllvray to Cotton, gave the locals 35 yards. A few line plays and short passes put th oval on Thomasville's two-yard line from which point McOllvray went over and made It ft perfect record by kicking accurately again. A superb past for ft gain of 50 yards made things looked serious for Clover dale in the third frame after both sides had failed to gain. Williams did the toning for the Bulldogs and Klmbrell caught the ball. It put it on the Crimsons' 21 -yard line. Then the surprise for Thomssvill elected to try the same play again. It worked and Klm brell was over with the visitors' first score, falling to kick goal, however. Steady March Nete Another A steady march, down the field from their own 44-yard line gave the Crim sons another touchdown to even mat ter for tk period. For the first time the Crimsons elected to gain without taking to the air. They did it successfully with Brown and Cotton ripping off gain after gain around the end and off tackle. Brown went over for the touchdown alu skirting right tackle for mm SHOCK of coin VANDY ROLLS ON TO SMASHING VICTORY OVER VIRGINIA, 34-0 McGugin's Offense, Led By Arrhistead, Crushes Cavaliers And Gives Commodores . Another Win NASHVILLE, TENS, Oct 27, Dan McOugtn's kmg hope for offense showed Itself today to be surprisingly ef fectlve before s borne crowd, and Van drrbllt humbled the Cavcliers of Vlr itala 34 to 0. It was' Vandy's second con ference victory, The game wa won systematically, end although spectacular and replete with thrilling runs it was victory for blocking system McGugln taught his team when he became worried by Its of fense, or rather lack of it Scarcely had Virginia received the first kickoff and lost ground, before the Commodores began pounding away and the Cavalier gave. With Armlstead skirting ends and Schwartz wrestling valuable gains from the Virginia line, Vanderbllt soon worked the ball to the cavaliers two-vard line, but lost It on downs. The Commodores took the ball In mid- field on ft punt however, and worked it back to. within striking distance ironi where McOaughey- and Schwartz took It to the Virginia four-yard line. Armlstead swerved through tackle for the touch down and Abernathy kicked goal. Start Again Before Virginia recovered from the shock, the Commodores were hurrying the ball toward the Cavalier line again with the backs working. Mcllwaine took the oval on Virginia's 35-yard line, followed perfect Interference around right end and then shook off Virginia's secondary- de fense and galloped across for ft counter. Again Abernathy kicked goal. Visibly startled when they kicked on, the Cavaliers were tumble to stop Armlstead until he ran 20 yards and two plays later, Mcllwaine broke through tackle and with bis teammates blocking su perbly. ran 52 yards for the third touch- down. And again Abernathy kicked goal. The Cavalier kicked off, and no soon er had Armlstead tucked the ball under his arm thac his mates began blocking, He raced down the field and then cut across, following . an Interference that took out tacklers on all sides. He didn't stop running and hlk mates didn t stop blocking until be had crossed the Vir ginia line. The great Jlmmie had run 83 yards. Sabs G In McGugln itarting pulling his regulars, and m the second quarter had an entire team of substitutes on the field. They battled the Cavaliers on even terms, and If anything gave better than they took. Several Vanderbllt drive were nipped by fumbles and penalties. ,-. , The Virginians could not get going on the ground, and took to the air, only to have their passes knocked down or their throwers smothered. There was nothing to do except punt and Sloan and Smith did that exceptionally well. Rain and penalties came in the third quarter, and late In the fourth period, McGugln sent his entire varsity squad back into the game. It took Armlstead only ft few minutes to break through and race 57 yards rorvanouier toucnaown, Abernathy kicked his fourth goal. At Intervals, particularly when Sloan had the ball, Virginia looked like an .Im portant drive might be In the Cavaliers but each time the drive was headed on by ft Commodore line that would not give.
