Sewanee, showing here for the second time, differed little from its exhibition against Alabama, breaks of the game against the Purple Tigers and Alabamas rather ruthless offensive as compared to Auburn's probably accounting for part of the excess pointage in the Crimson Tides favor. And then Auburn no doubt was revealing as little of its fancier football as pos sible, keeping in mind an engagement that is to be filled at Columbus a week hence with Georgia.

With them came the varsity ends, Ariall and Grant, and Molpus and Bush, varsity linemen. On the first play, Williams passed to Hitchcock, who made a 20-yard gain all told before being rushed out of hounds on the Sewanee three. The Purple's defensive right half-hack was nowhere near Hitchcock as he raced out to receive the pass. Foot Short Of Gosl Dupree made a yard in each of two bucks at the line then Hitchcock. needing only another yard, was thrust back only a foot short of the goal. The Purple was being hard-headed about It and continued so, stopping Hitchcock still a foot shy on a fourth down trip around right end. Sewanee punted out, Phillips getting away a nice 43-yard kick. But Hitchcock returned It to Sewance's 33 -yard line. Gee, Castleberry and Cravens were substituted Into the Sewanee backfield at this point and after Hitchcock had been thrown for a four-yard loss, the Purple's pass defense again went awry. Hitchcock sent a 22-vard sailer into the arms of Grant, who sped out beyond Castleberry, and raced 10 yards after the catch for a touchdow'n. Hitchcocks ty for point via placement kick was no good. Allen Rogers, a less downs ln succession, hut lost the hall on a fumble. After the opening quarter, the Gamecocks kept up their passing attack without success until the final period, while the Florida team chose to play a defensive gume throughout.

Farioletti made Chattanooga's second touchdown on a 17-yard drive over right tackle early ln the second quarter, but Haswell failed on the kick. Haswell went over again through the line a few minutes later after Cerasole had recovered a fumble by Ztnkowski, Mercer substitute quarterback. Haswell made the point. Walden got loose for once and put the ball where lxng could make i4 and a touchdown on Trommer-liausers pass, but Hollingsworth's kick was wide.

Only twice until the last few minutes of play did Sewanee pass mld-fleld toward Auburn's goal. The Pjurple took the hall to Auburn's 39 early ln the game but was held and forced to punt. The best chance for action before it was too late came in the third quarter when Bull Patton, Sewanees star tackle. broke through and blocked Rogers' attempt to punt. Stlmson fell on the ball on Auburn's 39. But Instead of shooting ln Gee and Castleberry. reputedly the Sewanee scoring machine. Coach over the horizon. This pair had been put into the game, It will be remembered, in the second quarter when Auburn had the ball, and It was over Castleberry that the first touchdown pass was completed. Presumably, he and Gee are not quite up to snuff on defense, and it looked to he bad manipulating of men that accounted for their presence when Sewanee was being shed against its own goal and kept them out ln the fourth quarter, following Patton's block of the Auburn kick, until the Plainsmen had regained the ball. Sewanee perked up near the end of the gume and drew fairly close to home but was checked before reaching the 20-yard line. Wellford threw a beautiful pass on the dead run. after dodging two or three tack-lers, to Jeffries for a 29-yard gain and a first down on Auburns 38. Gee and Castleberry bucked It through the 27 but a bad pass from center was costly and a pass over the goal line gave Auburn the ball on Its own 20, from whence the Plainsmen hauled It to Sewanee's 15 Just before the whistle. And yet the game was conclusively Auburn all the way. The Plainsmen vastly outgained their opponents. some 350 yards to 100, and made 20 first downs to Sewanee's six, one of which was through a penalty. Beautiful Passing The Auburn passing was beautiful to behold. Hitchcock completed most of the six out of 10 tries, with Williams and Phipps connecting once each. A total of 117 of the 350 Plainsmen yards were accumulated through the air, either a fine testimonial to Auburn's passing or a poor commentary on Sewanee's pass defense. Perhaps both. However, Phipps, who rates a shade above Hitchcock in passing, was used little in this phase of attack. Maybe he will have his try against Georgia. Sewanee's tackling grew rather ragged as the game bore oh, and Rogers and Biown were! making yards and yards In the second half after they had been tagged by one or more Purple defenders. Rogers, ln particular, picked up many yards after he might well have been thrown. Gee was not the rip-snorting fullback against Auburn, however, that he was against Alabama.

BY BEK XEBEK AuocUted Press Sports Writer BALTIMORE STADIUM, Baltimore, Nov. 1 4 (IP) The Navy's football ship, tossed about uncertainly In Its campaign so far this season, ran afoul the Notre Dame hurricane here Saturday and floundered to a 20 to 0 defeat. The green shifted raiders of South Ben smashed over the Navy goal three times ln the second period, but after that a stubborn Middy defense halted the fast running backs and played the powerful line on almost even terms to stop every scoring threat. The Middies, in holding Notre Dame to three touchdowns, surprised those who had expected the gold helmeted steam roller to smother them under an avalanche of scoring. Even at that, the 20 points scored by the Ramblers was not a criterion of the difference between the two teams' in everything but stubbornness of defense. Not one first down did the Navy register while the South Benders were counting 14. Tars Hold Irish Although the Notre Dame first string backs ripped the Navy line almost at will ln the first period, the Tars held when the threat entered the scoring zone. Not until the second period did Notre Dame get the scoring range. Then it came quick and fast. An exchange of kicks gave Notre Dame possession of the ball on the Navy 33-yard Jlne. Schwartz shot a lateral pass to Banas who shot through left tackle to the Navy 15-yard line. With perfect Interference opening the entire left side of the Middy line, Schwartz dashed through and over the goal standing up. Tho sfcond touchdown was the result of a sustained 66-yard drive that started after Devore returned the Navy kickoff to his own 34-yard line. Banas, Schwartz and Murphy ripped the Navy tackles to shreds for two consecutive first downs. Schwartz shot a pass to Murphy who raced to the Navy 34-yard mark. 8ehwartx Doss It Schwartz poked through the Tar left tackle to the 15-yard line and then tossed a lateral to Banas. who was thrown on the one-yard stripe. He plunged over on one try irut Murphy's kick for the extra point was blocked. The final counter came as the direct result of a 15-yard penalty on the Navy and a pass from Mlllheam to Murphy. T!e Navy attack could not get under way and Gordon Chung Hoon, the Navy'B Hawaiian backfield star, got off a poor punt to bis own Pass Wins For W. & L.

Patton and Morton, the 190-pound Sewanee left end. were strong bulwarks of defense for their leam ln the earlier stages of the game, with Patton's steady work driving more than one play right Into Mortons arms. But they, along with the rest of their mates, were brushed aside all too frequently luter on. Hitchcock was the truckhorse or racehorse dimensions for Auburn. He carried the hall 15 times for 137 yards gain, a high average for the day of nine yards a shot. Besides this, he did most of the passing and did it well and attended to all other chores ;n his regular line of work. He was not up to snuff In punt returning. however, hauling back but one kick and that for only eight or 10 yards. Close Second Rogers was a close second in total yards with 106. WelUprd was Sewanees main advances Ho carried the ball 11 times for an average gain of four. The game was markedly free from penalties, although Auburn drew two for 15 yards, one for holding anyone for roughness, and one offside assessment. the total being but 35 yards. Sewanee went through the entire 60 minutes without a penalty of any kind, a rather unusual thing In this day of rough-and-tumble football. , Auburn's play was not necessarily Impressive, but thoroughly satisfying. The defense held Sewanee In check better, by far than any opponent has this year. And the offense clicked oven better ln comparison than has any team that Sewanee has .met, except, of course, Alabama. The generalship appeared to he on the upgrade, too. Williams handled the situation nicely ln the role if quarterback In the absence of both Davidson and Parker, heretofore regarded as first and second men for that post, and It would not be surprising should he continue to draw the Job.

Nov. 14 ((Pi A slashing Washington & Lee eleven brought gloom unprecedented to old Nassau's campus Saturday by banding the rrineeton Tigers their sixth consecutive defeat, 6 to 0. It was the first time the Oenerals from Lexington, Va., have triumphed ln half a dozen tussles with the Orange end Black. By their victory-, which came on a forward pass tossed by Halfback Wilbur Mattox to Halfback Joe .Sawyers, the Generals piled new woe on the most funereal of Princeton's seasons. Princeton, taking to the air when its ground attack proved too weak, tossed passes all afternoon, only to see most of them grounded or tnatched by visiting hands. The Washington & Lee team's only pass tallied. The teams fought hard and ling, with only three substitutes for both. Mattox. Sawyers, Mosovleh and Bailey wrote their names large in the record by sterling play for the Southerners, The Washington & Lee score came late in the second after several Tiger breats had been wrecked on the rocks of the visiting line or stopped by aerial gone awry. Mattox started things by dashing through tackle eight yards to his 47-yard line.' Then Bailey and Mattox split the Tiger line for several short gains. Sawyers ran 13 yards to the 27-yard stripe. After a couple of Ineffectual line bucks to the 24-yard line, Mattox looped his pass to Saw-vers, who went over unmolested. The Tigers bioeked Mitchells boot. The rest of the game was a saga of Southern fighting spirit, with Princeton's hopes waning under an avalanche of passes intercepted, muffed or poorly thrown, woak line attempts and fumbles. The Tigers made nine first downs to the visitors' four and gatned 86 yards by rushing to 61. They failed to gain at opportune spots. Only 13.000 saw the game.
