Al the half I we trailed Ihe University of Wash- 'Ington, 0-12. Seven minutes after the second half began, we had scored three touchdowns, two from passes caught by Johnny Muck Drown and thrown by Pooley Hubert ami Grant anils. It finally ended Alabama, 20; Washington 10. • . The next season, wllh. nine n led to play Vandcrbllt In the regulars missing, we were Kchcd- srcoml game. Before going to Alabama I was assistant under , Dan McOugin, and since this was our flrit rivalry as coaches, I was eager lo win from my old boss nnd friend.

C., Oct. 23. _ I Ucllcve Hie game out of which I iii'Ineci the most satisfaction In winning was played In 1020, while I was coaching the Fitzgerald and Cliuke Military School In Tulla- jlioma, Tcmi. , We had won all our games wllh prep schools by 50 |x>lnU or more cl « l " cc . llllc '° losing so many Dryjcn Collcije, our opponent, had' l )1 " vcls fl ' 0111 llie previous year, pluycd some of the SouUicj-n Con-' II °"' fiv( ' r . wc '">d a great day.

On the opening klekoff, we booted a short one nnd recovered It on the Hrysoti 40-yard line. We lined up ciulfkly with a signal and passed to uu end on' the old sleeper play for a touchdown. This gave us a running start, and we rim It snorted Rtd(je took the ball on a kick-off and advanced fur as won, 19-6. II wns t|iilt« coincidence that line alter Hulchtns had back. 10 yards. Brown downdcld to the Dobcats' 3D yarcli the chicks' 35 yard line line. Then, playing in they were stopped ami Die, backflckl. slipped through' pmitcil over Hie Hlythoville goal l-Yoin (here the piny swept hi the game against Georgia Tech this year the Engineers used the -hrri. kMc on us successfully and a few plays later scored n toucli- i uv,'n witn Uie old .sleeper play. After that maneuver, Bngley and 1 looked at each other knowingly, remembering the Bame back in I'JW. Biiglcy seemed U) say: "Well, before 1 Wallace, Tech evened the score fiailey tor me." I certainly did enjoy winning conch at Duke, for louchdowns. 1 Final .score was 19-7, nud I was ft happy man. We had another interesting enme In the IJowl In 1930, when Alabama won from Washington State. 24-0. Two touchdowns were made by long passes from Jimmy. Moore, an cud, to John Slither and Ben Smith. Spinner Campbell made a 43-yard run for a third touchdown, and J. B. Whitworlh, present line coach at [,. s. U., kicked a placement for three |X>ints. In 1932 we got a great thrill at, Duke by winning from the University of North Carolina. 7-0. This was the first time since 1892 Duke had won from the Tar Heels, Another game we enjoyed winning here was the Tennessee contest In 1833. Coach l!ob Ncylnnd's Volunteers had been almost Invincible for five years. The veal Dcatlte Feathers was in Tennessee's backfleld. Duke' won, 10-2, with Tackle Freddie Crawford Playing what I think was probably the finest game I ever have teen a lineman display. In 1S35 North Carolina had a great team and won all Us games by Impressive scores. The Tar Heels were rated on lop, and wo were given little chance. However, we upset the dope and won, 25-0. Oh, Tho;:c Monday lilucs! i This story would be misleading ,lf I related only the games which I particularly enjoyed without naming a few of the defeats that have hurt. In 1923. my first year at Ala-' bama, we came up to our Thanksgiving Day game with Florida, Invored to win the game that would have given us the Southern Conference championship. The battle wns.staged in a downpour of rain. We ended the first, half leading 0-0. and it appeared « ^iifc bet that no one would score again In the mud. But as result of some splendid kicking by Ark Newton, and some great running by Edgar Jones, we lost, 1G-C, I was a sick young man Hear Shot in City 1'ark thru night. | MARQUETTE, Mich.

It was the first one Wo had eolten off to a lino start, seen on the island In many years had flue material, mid prospects • were bright. Bui things broke against us right from the slart. Gene McIver took the opening kickoff for the Vols and ran it back for a touchdown. After llie next kickoff, we scored on (lie first piny from scrimmage. The difference In the scores. of the two teams was two uoinls made on a safety when we fumbled a bad pass from center behind the goal line. In 1933 we had wori nine games and were playing Georgia Tech. We were favorites, mid hoped to win lo finish the season with a clean slate. ' We carried tlie ball across for the rich fragrance and mel a touchdown, but it wns railed " back because our team was offside. Tech finally scored, and we were never able lo overcome that lead.
