TUB JJEE, DANVILLE, VA., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1923 SEVENTEEN Three Big Gridiron Upsets In The East Yesterday BARNEY GOOGLE and SPARK PLUG v Makes a Light Investment VJH-* DOM-T YOU C6ARN WOW To srecpf AM East Sees Brilliant Program of Gridiron fB-r The A««ocia.ted Pr*»O NE"W YORK. ICov. 30.--Three Upsets, one of which eliminated the previously undefeated West Virginia cloven from eastern championship cons.deration, featured the most brilliant Thanksgiving Day football program ever offered In the East. The upsets came in the 7 to 2 def^at of West Virginia by Washington Jefferson; the 20 to 3 trouncing of Pennsylvania State by Pittsburgh and in Le'high's 12 to 6 victory over Brown. Bordering on an upset was Pennsylvania's great stand against Gil Dobie's Cornel! eleven. Fourteen to seven Droved the final score of this contest, which left Cornell with its smallest score of the season and resulted In the narrowest victory registered over Pennsylvania by Cornell sines Dobie became coach of the lat"ter team The one eastern game that fulfilled general predictions was that at the Polo Grounds where Dartmouth triumphed 31 to 6 over Columbia. A fumble by Nardacci, who has been guilty of several such errors this season, paved the way to the Washington Jefferson win over West Virginia. The latter had gone undefeated for eight ·weeks, although tied by Penn State, and West Virginia rooters expected their team would be rated with Tale and Cornell as the best In the East. At Pittsburgh, the Panthers, playing their last game under Glenn Warner, developed the most surprising upset of the day. Penn State felt certain of victory hut found itself soundly outplayed in all departments of the game. Penn forced Cornell to play itg hardest throughout the full four periods at Philadelphia and had the Pennsy attack proved as study as its defense, Cornell's Ions string of triumphs might have been interrupted. It -was a Cornell fumble late in the game, recovered by McGraw of the Red and Whit", that paved the way to Pennsylvania's score. In the big intersectional game of the day, Vermont proved no match for Marquette, and the latter completes its second successive season without a defeat.

CAROLINA AND VIRGINIA BATTLE TO A SCORELESS TIE IN GUELLING GAME (By The Associated Press) CHAPEL HILL, N. 0., Nov. 29--With each team grimly resolved that its goal line should not be crossed, Carolina and University of Virginia battled here this afternoon to a scoreless tie in the 28th annual renewal of the Thanksgiving Day football game between the two institutions. So evenly matched were the elevens that the entire game was played in the middle 60 yards of the gridiron, neither team crossing the 20 yard line of its opponent during the sixty minutes of gruelling football. Virginia, resolved to score if possible, came very close to the objective in the second half when, within the distance of a drop kick from the goal post and directly in front of the goal. A pass by Thesmar, center for the Old Dominion eleven, however, went high over Arnold's head, who was playing back for the drop kick and the ball was recovered only after a heavy loss. Virginia lined up in front of the and Bonner starred.
