The Plainsmen field generals called only four puses, and then only when gains could not be made through the Badgers' forward wall. Three of the aerial heaves were complete and another was ruled as perfect on account of Badger Interference with the receiver. Passes from Hitchcock to Dupree and AriaU and from Head to Shackleford ted directly to markers. The first toss, from Hitchcock to Du- -pree in the second quarter, placed the ball on- the loser's 10-yard line and In three tries Hitchcock went over his left tackle for six points, through a big hole opened up by Holdoroft Chambless, and Egge. Hitchcock was standing up when he ended his eight-yard run. Ariall was down on Spring Hill's eight-yard line after catching Hitchcock's second pass. The superb sophomore caught " the ball on the run and was downed Immediately. Two plays through the line and a skirt around right end by Hitchcock accounted for . Auburn's second counter.

But, He Is Unable To Clinch Victory Over Invaders " NEW HAVEN, CONN, Oct SI. CP) A courageous band of Dartmouth football players failed today to a quest for a vic tory over Yale, but gained glory enough in coming back frcm almost certain defeat to tie the Blue 33 to 33. ' ' Since 1884 the green clad warriors from Mew Hampshire have sought in vain for victory over Yale. Today they had it within their traps for a fleeting moment while 35,000 persons stared down from the big gray bowL Bill McCall, stocky- Dartmouth back had Just intercepted a forward pass intended for Capt. Albie Booth, of Yale, and run 60 yards for the touchdown which made the score -30-33. A few minutes later two passes carried the ball to Yale's 15-yard line. Two attempts at the line failed. Then Morton dropped back to his own 18-yard line, and when the ball came back to McCall, who placed it on the ground, calmly kicked it through the uprights 28 yards away. If they could not win neither ccnld Yale. And so the game ended. The game started as though to be a Dartmouth romp, with the Green keeping the ball constantly in Yale territory through the first quarter and Morton scoring the first of his two field goals to the second period. Then came the, deluge. Booth took the next kick-oft Just in side his cwn 15-yard line, arid ran for a touchdown. Giving the Dartmouth men little time to absorb that blow, Booth led another Yale advance the first time the Blue got the ball. The advance ended when Todd, his running mate at right half, tossed Booth a 10-yard pass, and he galloped 10 more for his second touchdown in five minutes. The. Blue midget took a little time out then to get back his breath while Bob Parker, Yale quarter, and Morton ex changed kicks. But with Yale holding the ball to midfleld he apparently de cided he had rested long enough, took a pass on a reverse, skirted end and tiptoed his way through the whole Dartmouth team 50 yards to the goal. It was then Dartmouth began to fight. With a substitute Yale team In, Morton tcssed a 20-yard pass to McCall from Dartmouth's own 15-yard line and stocky i Bill reeled off 65 more to make the score 10 to 26 as the half ended. Yale came back with its regulars ' to start the third quarter and to three min utes had marched down the field tor a touchdown. Then McCall stole Booth's thunder, took the following kick-eff on his own- seven-yard line and ran 93 yards to score. Still demoralized by that brilliant dash the Yale line let Donner, the Green left end sift through a few moments later to block Parker's attempt ed punt from Yale's 35-yard line, scoop it up and run for a touchdown. Yale was still coasting alcng behind an apparently safe lead of 33 to 24 as the fourth quarter opened when Todd, about to be tackled, tossed a forward wildly and McCall gathered it to on Yale's 35-yard line and ran for the Oreen's last touchdown. Morton who had booted two placements after touchdown and one field goal, failed on this one and Dartmouth s chance to win was gone. The summary: YALE In.
