hero this afternoon In the second contest of the year The playing of both teams was mediocre The Techs did not play up to their usual gait and failed on a number of forward passes when tiny would have meant scores The noticeable feature on the part of the locals paying was the weak line through which the visitors plunged almost at will Hut by the gaining of little ground they failed to make a goal Hoffman playing right half for Hoanoke was easily the star °f the game Time and again he would jump over men who had ’ been taek'ed and gain ground Bunting was the hero of the game for his team and but for Ills shrewdness the Techs would have gone over Blddiek was the star for the Techs making several heavy advances down the field with no results During tho last two minutes of play Riddick attempted a goal from placement hut fulled by a foot The absence of None at right guard and the substitution of an inexperienced player was an outstanding cause of weakness for A & M The lineup: A & M

a perfect opportunity Referee Alexander however ruled that the Statesville man's foot had crossed the line upon the punt and declared the opportunity nullified After considerable argument and a perusal of the rule hook the decision was accepted by Coach Kthcredge The rule declares that the hull must he kicked from behind the line leaving tne penalty for violation unstated and theiefure at the discretion of the referee The tie score came after a display of football miinetimes spectacular and at others somewhat ragged Neither side successfully negotiated the forward pass during the
