Tatum and Maryland didn't have :o wait long yesterday for those breaks against the national champions. They came In the first halt and Maryland moved brilliantly 'orward to a 28-13 upstt victory. The smooth, even manner in which Maryland operated and the great werckage H wrought on one of the hijhest regarded teams of the last 15 years, may prove to be a big factor in swinging more coaches and teams to the split T attack. Maryland Is the prime example of split T precision and power. Tennessee this season was the prime example of single wing now- The victor}' was No. 12 !n a row for Maryland. For Tennessee the defeat was the first In 21 games.
