Iliaco Sunùao Sxiliimr-iRcralà fc- i WACO, TKXAS, SUNDAY, NOVKMHKIt 2, lt*47 TCU Frogs Capture 14-7 Victory to Spoil Baylor’s Homecoming Lindy Berry Top Villain as Bears Kicked From Race "Firing TCU (iridders Fight Hack to Win By OSCAR LARNTE Tribune-Herald Staff Those old bugaboos, the quick kick and the fumbler, helped Baylor lose another ball game at Municipal Stadium Saturday. A Homecoming throng of 16,000 watched the Bruins outplay favored Texas Christian University most of the way, but the tiring Horned Frogs refused to be outfought in the second half, which had some tight ball handling, and cam«* out with a 14*to-7 victory which knocked the Baptists completely out of the Southwest Conference race until another season. Even President Pat Neft was fumbling. He muffed the Homecoming queen’s coronation by getting her crown on upside down the first try. Baylor gained the most ground rushing, covered the most distances in the aid and piled up the most first downs, but a quick kick by I,eon Joslln and « couple of butter- fi•» ;f*r specials in the first half did the damage. Bruin* llit with Fury The Bruins were ripping through the massive Purple forward wall with fury in the early stages and looked hot for once before a Homecoming crowd, but fumbles quickly cooled them off. One came on the TCU 2fi and another on the Toad six when the visitors could do nothing about being shoved back. TCU barely missed a rapid /touchdown when Jack Price fumbled on the first play from scrimmage, but the Bruins staved off that one.

Joues, assistant trainer* (Photo by Jimmie Willi») 6 It was about the same story as last year in Fort Worth when two fumbles resulted in TCU j touchdowns and a mighty kick by- Jim Lucas put the Bears in a hole uhich they spent the rest of the I day trying to get out of. This time the fumbles did not donate touchdown* to the Toads but kept tha Bears from making them. Tackling Sometime* Ragged Tackling was vicious but ragged at times, especially by Baylor on a 36-vard scoring jaunt by Lindy Berry for the first Frog six-pointer In the second quarter. Berry, incidentally, was the big- f est villain of all the Christians, le also pitched for the six-pointer that sealed Baylor's doom in the final disastrous chapter and was a smooth operator at quarterback from Dutch Meyer’s pet baffler, the triple wingback, which kept the Bruins guessing, which way to go every time the Toads sprang it on them. If 'TCU had used it more often, the score may not have been so close. They could et nowhere against the smashing ear linemen except with that formation. Pete Stout, a hard-driving fullback. helped Berry engineer fhe winning campaign bv pounding here for three, there for two and here again for one or two as the Baylor boys opened up their de* fonse in a futile effort to check the trickv spreader. Carl Knox, the punting wizard, got off some nifty ones but none of the tremendous boots which have won him fame in other f rames. Lucas did not play much n his first contest of the season and wasn’t given a chance to show his educated foot. One kick was enough to do the job. Plentv of fierce* bruising work was done in the lino on both sides. The Bears had Bill Craven of Waco, Chuck Stone, Buddy Tins- lev. making another great bM for .AM-Conference honors; Henry Dcker^on, the goal kicking expert; J. D. Ison, and Clarence McCaw. who was continuallv rushinr tH-ough the Tnads to wreck a play b^'ore it could start. Kilman Sparks Line Haro’d “Killer” Kilman and Eldon Edwards, giant TCU tackles, were marvelous everv second they were in the battle. Kilman roamed to everv corner, wrestling this Bavlor back and that to earth. He tired in the last ouarter and had to taken out. Edwards kept the Bruins awav from his territory wHh some terrific joltinr. Doug P.rightwell, substitute center, spoiled a loner run for Lyle Blackwood bv crabbing the .speedv Grizzly around one ankle iust when he seemed to he awav. Brightwell also had a pood nose for the pigskin and followed it closely to thwart numerous Bruins. Crew* Make* Great Catch Carl Crews turned in the most some-tingling plav of the came, a mighty leaping catch of 35 yards in the last period which put Bav­ lor in a scoring position but the threat fizzled. Jack Price was his steadv self at quarterback, handling the ball well and passing accurately. He furnished another snine-tineer with the aid of Sims to get, the lone Bruin touchdown. Ben Hall and Jerrv Mangum showed nower in tearing the TCU center aisle wide open. Blackwood was slick off the tackles and Dud- Jev Parker was a dangerous man untn he went out with a leg injury. Toad Orive Halted A magnificent goal-line stand with the Frogs hammering at the Promised Land in the fourth quarter gave Baylor an edge in the line battle. The back-to-the-wall rally stopped TCU one foot short of another touchdown. The Bears were off to an apparent touchdown early in the See BAYLOR-TCU, Page 2 McWilliams Leads Mississippi Slate To 20-0 \ ictory NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 1 AP— Shorty McWilliams showed 35,000 spectators what a great back can do for a football team today, and Mississippi State downed Tulane, 20 to 0, as a result. The former Army star scored two touchdowns himself, and com- plotely dominated the 34-yard drive which led to the third. Tulane twice threatened, but Mississippi State’s underrated line stopped both thrusts, once on the four-yard line and again on the 10. It was an impressive Southeastern Conference debut for the Maroons w-ho lost one game in an early-soason round of intersectional play. McWilliams, who slithered, squirmed and bulled his way seemingly at will, scored from the five- yard line in the first, period. Virginia Crushes Foe For Sixth Win in Row CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.. Nov. 1 AP Virginia won Its sixth game in a row Saturdav, defeating the University of Richmond. 34-0. The ragged game was marked by frequent fumbles and numerous penalties. Penn State Runs Over Colgate Team, 46 to 0 STATE COLLEGE. Pa., Nov. 1 AP An endless stream of Penn State backs ran over and around Colgate today as the undefeated Lions routed the New Yorkers, 46-0, for their sixth successive victory of the season and their 30th win in fit years of gridiron campaigning. Colgate threw up a stubborn defense at the outset, and yielded only one touchdown in each of the first tw?o periods. Thereafter, it was no contest as Penn State’s vaunted powder bore down on the hapless Raiders. Badgers Crumple Northwestern, 29-0 EVANSTON. III., Nov. 1 AP Wisconsin kept alive it’s chance for at least a slice of the “Big Nine’’ football championsip Saturday hy smothering offense lacking Northwestern. 29-0. Wisconsin’s speedy Badgers scored first in one minute and 20 seconds, three plays after recovering a Northwestern fumble, and from there on the result wa, never in doubt. In contrast Northwestern’s Wildcats were unable to penetrate into Wisconsin’s territory until 11 minutes of the third period had clicked off. West Texas Buffaloes Stampede Lumberjacks FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., Nov. 1 AP The Buffaloes of West Texas State College stampeded the Lumberjacks of Arizona State College Sat­ urdav 25-0. Charles Kitchens gave the visitors their initial tally when he intercepted one of H. H. Muse’s aerials at midfield and galloped the distance to the goal to give the Buffs a 6-0 first quarter advantage. In the following canto, Berl Pruitt climaxed a 72-yard West Texas drive when he went ovet from the five-yard line. Melton .added the point from placement. Jimmy Draper, gave west. Texas its final first half score when he tallied from six yard* out, after catching a pass from Ra> Moore to set up the »core. SOUTHWEST TCU 14, Baylor 7. NMU 14, Texas IS.
