Football f continued
Granite's Warriers dropped in on the Red'
birds hoping to grab a scalp as they had done in
'38, but the old and familiar "airways" sizzled
again and while Granite was stopping Schwartz
Cat timesl another S-Stallings-was grabbing
into the ozone and spearing passes to the delight
of Alton and the downfall of the Happy????
Warriors. We scored in second quarter on a pass
and later we downed our own punt on Granite's
1 yard stripe. They punted to their 27 and Wood
raced back to the 15. Two line plays netted number
2. Then for number 3 we started on our 20 making
80 yards and a touchdown before Granite found
who really had the ball. Granite threatened only
once. Stallings, McCaskill and Lazar scored.
We traveled to Collinsville remembering the
Arctic zone of 1937 when the Kahoks got a 6f0
win but this year the Redbirds vowed "They
Shall Not Pass." The Redbirds lost a counter
on an end zone fumble but came back to life and
marched from the middle of the fie'd to score.
Schwartz and Lazar pass combination netted an'
other touchdown. Each of the two times the
Kahoks started somewhere they found Harvey
Moore stealing their "well" directed pass and the
Indians died peacefully on the short end of a 0f13
score. Our scorers were Stallings and Lazar.
Let's make it NINE in a row was Alton's
battle cry for the traditional Turkey Day game.
For 8 years Western had sought victory and it
was in 1934 they had scored their last points.
Western had seen a poor season pass by partly
due to injuries-Alton for once was conceded
victory, a position Coach Jackson never Wants.
A great day-a crowd-and what a game. The
heavy cadets were tough on line plays but susf
ceptible to passes and the faster charging Red'
birds. Alton scored in second quarter when
Schwartz lateraled to Lazar on the Cadet 13 after
he himself had received McCaskill's pass on the
28. It was one of the season's fastest pass combinaf
tions. Western failed to score as the half ended
with the Cadets short of the goal line by a mere
half foot. In the second half Beane blocked a punt
of Western on their 13, and Stallings made quick
work of a touchdown. A few moments later an'
other forward and lateral McCaskill to Lazar
to Schwartz added Number 3 touchdown. Late
in the 4th quarter Casperson eluded the Alton
eleven for a 29 yard run to Alton's eleven. Here
their one good pass clicked and the game ended
Alton 21-Western 6. YESA9 in a vow. Lazar,
Stallings and Schwartz were our scorers,
