When Prinpelon Invaded the lair of the Maroon last month Coech Btagg groomed Thomas with the most meticulous care For two weeks prior to the game the Chicago fullback saw little ecrvlre - He was to be ssved exclusively for the Tiger hunt All sorts of rumors floated out from fltsgg Field ‘shout : Thoms" poor condition and ttwas feared that he would be unable to start -But they wers only so many fcaro— that and nothing more For when the Maroon trotted out on the field John Thomas eras In at fullback to tha delight ef the thousands packed Into tho stands And for something Ilka two hours of elapsed time Johnny continued to give them delight When Chicago got the ball a few minutes after the first kick-off and mamhad 0 yarns down the field for 'a touchdown It was Thomas who did most' of tho work Taking' the ball time after time tbe Maeoon plunger ripped Inside the tackles through the guards snd over center for gain after gain On seven' consecutive plsys lie carried the ball six times and hot once did he fall to knock out from three to eight yards fiuperbumaA Pounding -It was superhuman pounding and Thomas might have been a god so far as the Tigers were able to oiop him Bturting with a quick bunt ot speed and bitting the line -low with a ter-rtflo dip he straightened up Immediately and then charged his way through the secondary The Prince-ton tackier seemed to lie butterfln-gered for Johnny Dimply brushed their hands aside and kept on his way until two or three of the enemy threw themselves around hla legs Afteri this remarkable demonstration of battering power Thomss was drawn from tha game toward the close of tho second quarter- to root up for the second - half - - How' the -stand cheered him when he dashed to off the back field And in the second half It was tho same thing over again Princeton waa beginning to fathom the Maroon attack batter new but she couldn't stop Thomas Nobody could do that Chicago rooters loudly proclaimed to tho world And Indeed It looked that way But alas for Chicago they were wrong Tha great John Thomas failed his team at-the moment when tt peeded him moot Trailing 11—21 and- with only one minute to play the Maroon stood within tho Tiger’s five-yard lino whence tt bad carried tbe ball by a lest -desperate rally down the field First down— -five yards- to the goal line ‘Second down— three yards Third 'down— ona yard Fourth down— etUI -one yard Tha ball never went over Thomas with a great leap tried to scale tha towering pile of Orange and Black bodies that threw themselves In his path “ But in - vain After walking all over those same bodies for more than twa hours the Maroon battering ram found himself up against a stone wall Tba Ttgrrs rallied their waning strength for this last stand and Thomas weakened by his Incessant pounding ef their line did not have quit enough left to effect the breach The star plunger hag given of his strength Aoe liberally Ills team mates had allowed him to assume too much of the burden and after all ho waa only human There la a limit to human endurance' and Thomas reached it ut the most critical point In tbe game lie had blaycg bis hand too soon ' Princeton linemen declared after the game that Thomas wad a wreck a miiM of bruises But that didn't prevent him from going Into the game against Ohlta Wats and repeating hla ground gaining through tho Buck-eyes It take a better line than anything the West or Knot has shown to date to stop the Maroon's powerful battering ram and that Is the main reason why Chicago is tied for first piece with Michigan and town in tha Conference' championship Thomas looms as onq of tbe strongest candidates for All-American fullback from coast to coast' Tho Old Old Canard About Mutuels 1: EVERY now and than about every two yeanq thla "piece of newiri (T) a' flashed cn the worthy cilia na ef New Tcrk— that a bin Is to be Jnlroduced at Albany per-- mlttlsg part-mutual bolting on tho race tracks operating In Oia Empire (flat ' Thai report Is so ridiculous to those ' familiar with tbe situation that tt would not be answered but tor the evil to tha turf that might result If It was not denied -
