Sustaining its reputation for originality and
Captain Howard Nelson was the stellar right
end of the Leopards. It was a very pleasing
sight when Howard leaped high into the air
and snagged a pass. He could block and tackle
as the best of them. By virtue of this, Howard
was reelected on the mythical A11-city team.
This was his last year to play.

October 9, in the Cotton Bowl at the Centen-
nial Grounds. She was attended by four
Maids of Honor, Jeanne Cates, Mildred Single-

ELMER NREDD DUxRE'rT
Elmer was one of the steadiest players on the team,
and always turned in a sterling game. Red is the type of
man who makes a good center, and he certainly did every-
thing that was expected of him, and then some. He has
a line spirit and will be a sure bid for All-City next
PETE LAYDEN "B. TY'
Pete Layden was shifted from end
to backfield late in the season, but
he quickly stamped himself as one
of the best backs in the city. His
superior punting and passing was
praised by everyone. He was selected
to play in the A11-Star game. This
was Layden's second and last year
to play for the Leopards.
W. A. NBUSSEYH STRICKLAND
W. A. will always be remembered
for his dependability and his great
fighting spirit. Bussey has lettered
at a guard position for the last two
years and at tackle this year. He
was one of the best tackles in the
city this year, and his position will be
hard to fill next year.
GLENN QQSLEW-FOOTJ, SCHERER
Glenn ended his athletic career at Adamson this year.
He was a stellar linesman and held the position of center,
one of the most important positions on the team, in, a
manner that would be creditable to anyone. He was
an excellent blocker and had the traditional "Oak Cliff"
james, the largest man on the
team, used his weight to a good ad-
vantage in stopping the opponents'
backs. Moose-Nose, playing his third
year, showed vast improvement over
last year, and always had that fight-
ing determination to Win. His tackle
position will be hard to fill, and he
will be missed a lot by the rest of
