MORAN End HANNA Quarterback BALTER Guard BROWN End Baylor opened its bag of tricks wide in a futile attempt to stay the tide of battle but their coaches were unab.e to shake enough tricks from the proverbial bag to succeed. The Gents ' front wail functioned in a way to make Stonewall Tacks m drop his sabre in envy. Capt. Willis, Sid Baiter and Patterson performed beauti- fully, while Jake Hanna displayed one of the best diversified attacks ever seen in this section of the country.
