PUBLISHED TUESDAY AND FRIDAY BY THE STUDENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA VOL VII NORMAN OKLAHOMA FRIDAY NOVEMBER 29 1912 NO 20 SOPHOMORES WIN FROM THE ENGINEERS The Sophomores Win the Inter-class Championship by Score of 9 to 7 — Game Close and Hard Fought— Engineers Excel in Use ot Forward Pass— Johnson's Drop-Kick Wins In one of the most spectacular and by far the most exciting football game of the interclass series the Sophomores defeated the Engineers Tuesday by a score of 9 to 7 and for the second time won the class championship The two teams were very evenly matched as the score in points would seem to indicate Each team secured a touchdown and Neal Johnson’s drop kick in the last few m!n utes of play for the Sophs won the game The Engineers’ only touchdown came early in the first quarter after a series of line plunges when a forward pass was shot from Renshaw to Hibbard for 30 yards The Sophs made their touchdown in the third quarter when they carried the ball down the field by a series of line bucks and brilliant end runs by Copeland N Johnson and Gentry finally shoving Copeland over the goal line cn the fourth down The Engineers kicked goal and the Sophs failed making the score 7 to 6 in favor of the Engineers In the last few minutes of play however the second year men worked their way to striking distance and N Johnson drop-kicked a goal for the winning score The features of the game were the successful forward passes manipulated by the Engineers and the brilliant playing of the backfield men on both teams Hott Muck and Renshaw rarely failed to gain for the Engineers and Copeland Johnson Morgan and Gentry were equally as effective for the Sophomores Muck seemed to be able to stride through the line at will and N Johnson frequently made long runs through broken fields Both lines showed up strong in the pinches and often held for downs Galbreath and the Bell brothers probably did the most effective work tor the Sophs while O Hott and Hibbard were the shining stars of the Engineer line Hibbard getting a number of good passes The lineup was as follows: Engineers: Arnett right end L Asbury right tackle Pownell right guard Mitchell center Snyder left guard O Hott left tackle Hibbard left end Gorton quarter Renshaw left half W Hott right half Muck fullback Sophomores: Halley right end C Bell right tackle Furman right guard Eagleton center Galbreath left end J Bell left tackle Neil left end Gentry quarter Morgan left half Johnson right half Copeland fullback Referee Nairn umpire Collins John C Grover who refereed the Nebraska-Oklahoma game at Lincoln last Saturday says the game was one of the cleanest he ever has seen Raymond Williams a student in the fine arts department last year was here Tuesday looking over

Colorado Outplayed until Final Quarter Denver Colo Nov 28 — Beaten by luck altitude and an official decision which Coach Bennie Owen declared was “unfortunate to say the least” the University of Oklahoma lost to the University of Colorado 14 to 12 at Broadway park Thursday afternoon Colorado’s first score was made in the third quarter on the merest fluke when a ball punted by Glen-denning of Colorado hit the crossbar of the Oklahoma goal post bounded back into the field and was carried across the line by Kemp of Boulder The referee ruled that Court-right had touched the ball before it hit the goal but this was manifestly impossible Coach Owen protested and the Colorado coaches admitted that the decision was unfair but the referee insisted and the score stood Glendenning kicked goal Many of the Sooners are planning to stay over in Colorado until Saturday before starting on their return trip The Boulder students are celebrating their victory by a parade through the streets of Denver They regard a win over Oklahoma as making up for a rather bad season Every Oklahoma player emerged from the game in good condition witu the cxeption of Hott whose injured knee gave way in the fourth quarter forcing him to retire from the game Coach Owen examined the knee and declared that' the injury was not serious Owen sent in his substitutes in the third and fourth quarters but Colorado had victory in sight and they could not be stopped The Sooners came to Denver at noon from Fort Collins and they went at once to the Denver Y M C A building They started for the football field at 2 o’clock in a big auto mobile tally-ho They were accompanied through the streets by a squad of rooters from the Colorado school of mines The miners cheered the Sooners all through the game although a small group of former Oklahomans in one of the boxes gave the only Sooner yells heard Colorado won the toss and chose to defend the south goal Reeds kicked off at 2:30 o’clock to Colorado’s twenty-yard line Oklahoma had all the advantage in the first quarter and the Colorado section was gloomy Courtright gained almost at will but his right eye was injured in the third scrimmage and when he attempted a field goal from the thirty-yard line the ball went wild The Sooners were saved from scoring twice by Colorado’s luck and the quarter ended with the ball in Colorado’s possession on Colorado’s two-yard line Colorado kicked out at the beginning of the second quarter but the Sooners were not to be denied and they carried the ball to the four-yard line Weedn took the ball and fumbled it but Spears recovered the fumble and fell across the line Courtright failed to kick goal Oklahoma scored again in the second quarter when W Clark took the ball on the Colorado twenty-yard line and carried it around left end for a touchdown Reeds failed to kick goal Colorado’s first score came early in the third quarter when Glenden-ning’s punt hit the goal posts bounded back and was carried over by Kemp The Colorado players did not suppose that the play would count a touchdown but Referee Main ordered six points to Boulder and a perfect goal a minute later made the score Oklahoma

All A mask party will be given at the Gymnasium tonight by the Y M C A and Y W C A for all students of the University who are spending their Thanksgiving vacation in Norman Many of the students of the University find it impossible to spend their vacations “back home” where the turkey and the pumpkin pie are always the best Some live too far away to go home Some remain in Norman to study or work But all miss the “Turkey day flavor” of a vacation spent “back where we came from” To fill this want and to give everyone an enjoyable evening the two associations have planned a "good time meeting” to be held at the gymnasium tonight The affair is to be a mask party and the committees in charge headed by Mr John Rogers and Miss Vera Gorton have plans worked out that insure a good time for every student Come out and see Norman High Trounced Oklahoma High Playing the superior game in ad departments Norman high school defeated Oklahoma high school at League Park Thursday afternoon 32 to 0 After the first quarter the game never was in doubt the only question being the size of the score The team work of the visitors was more nearly perfect than any football machine seen in operation here this season their interference was strong the runners having competent assistance in every play Their tackling also was faultless being directed at the knees and seldom failing to stick On the other hand the locals played an individual game the line played high their tackling was aimed at the runners’ shoulders and heads and easily torn loose Few low tackles were made by the Oklahoma high A special train brought 500 rooters from Norman to see the game The only thing to mar the victory was the injury of Tom Boyd who received a dislocated arm The lineup: Norman: Britt left end Bumgar-tner left tackle Thomas left guard Meyer center Barbee right guard McFerron left tackle Cook right end Wails left half Capshaw right half Johnson quarter Boyd fullback Oklahoma City: Scruggs left end Detar left
