U ' «4 8 First team lineup " Milte " spills All-Amcrican " Bonmc Banks. " the season. Big June Moore, star blocking back of the Hose, broke into the clear on the Newberry thirty-fivc-yard line to re- ceive a perfectly thrown pass from Meisky. Tucking the pigskin under his arm, June gave a thrilling exhibition of brokcn-ficId running. He galloped through the defense of five Indians to score standing up. That play, in itself a thriller, won the game for the Johnson-Nixon coached aggregation. Starring for the Hose in this encounter were Moore, Sutton, Erwin and Buic. The line was great in its defense against the thrusts of Colangelo and other Indian backs. STOCKINGS 12— STETSON HATTERS 12 Blue Hose supporters suffered a slight disappointment when on October 20th, the Stetson Hatters from De Land, Fla., deadlocked the Stockings in a 12 to 12 count. The Blue Hose appeared to be the most powerful team and showed plenty of stuff the first half with a strong offense netting them two touchdowns. In the second half, however, the Calvinists seemed to lose a little of their fight and cased up for five minutes. Unfortunately for them, those 300 seconds were enough for the Hatters to take advantage of two breaks, one a P. C. fumble, the other an intercepted pass, and push over for two tallies. The first Stocking score came in the first quarter when with the ball in possession on the Hatter twcnty-flvc-yard JACK MILAM c J OE MILAM O 27 32

evidence was ever advanced to dispute the fact that the game was officially over before that play ever started. When the official clock showed that no more time remained, the Hose were leading 7 to 6. A few seconds fater The Citadel scored and was given credit for winning the game 12 to 7. In the first quarter of the fray, quarterback Dick Meisky, ace brain man for the Hosemen, carried the ball over from the five- yard marker after a short pass to Evans and a plunge by June Moore had put the ball in scoring position from The Citadel twenty- eight. Coleman place-kicked the extra pomt making it 7 to in favor of the Presbyterians. The second quarter saw the Bulldogs come back strong when Stubbs returned a Meisky punt to the P. C. seven. Two plays later, Stubbs on a reverse, went over the goal. The attempted conversion failed and P. C. led 7 to 6. The half ended a few minutes later with the Blue Stockings holding the ball on Citadel ' s five-yard line. The third quarter passed uneventfully with Meisky outdoing Leach in a punting duel. In the final period of the contest, the Light Brigade opened up a passing attack that finally earned them to the Hose ten-yard line. At this point, however, the official scoreboard dock showed that the game was over. Enthusiastic Blue Hose supporters rushed on the field to carry off their victorious team. Then came the referee ' s call for them to return to the field for another play. That play was a touchdown pass that gave the game to The Citadel by a 12 to 7 margin. Questionable? Rather!!! In spite of the disheartening loss, however, the game had its stars. Meisky, Coleman and June Moore played outstanding ball for the Johnsonmen. BLUE HOSE 6— NEWBERRY INDIANS Continuing their state competition, the Blue Hose returned to Johnson field the night of October 13th to oppose the Newberry Indians, arch rivals, prominent contenders for Little Four honors. The largest crowd of the season filed into the stands of Bailey Memorial stadium, and while the Newberry partisans departed disappointed, not one of them will soon forget the brand of football played that night. With such stars as Dominic Colangelo and Big Paul DeBruhl to increase the terror of his Indians, Coach Billy Laval brought to John- son field a team that battled the Blue Hose to a standstill through- out the fprst half. The punting and punt returning of Colangelo were brilliant. After the intermission, however, a typical Blue Hose team took the field. It was a team filled with the determination that so many teams before it had had: a determination that only the words of Walter Johnson could inspire. Only a few minutes had elapsed before the. Hose held the ball in Indian territory. Then came the surprise play of ■SQUIRREL ' WORRELL Manager iYtVii ■JUNE " MOORE tig " June " hits the Tiger line. 67

Coleman who was waiting with open arms in the end zone. The place-lticl; was wide and the score stood 6 to — P. C. During the second period Meisky passed ten yards from the Stetson forty-five to June Moore who twisted and squirmed his way the remaining thirty-five yards to cross the goal still on his feet. Sutton ' s try from placement failed, being knocked down by an opposing linesman. The score at the half: P. C. 12, Stetson 0. The third quarter brought dismay to Blue Hose fans. A P. C. fumble on their twenty-five was recovered by a Stetson back. Several plays netted the yardage needed for a touchdown. Less than five minutes later, a P. C. pass was inter- cepted on the Hose thirty and power plays brought another six points to Stetson. Both placement tries failed. The entire Blue Hose line played well with the ends Evans and Coleman, tackle Sadler and guard Finney being outstanding. In the backfield, McIslcy, Mitchell, Moore and Tannery starred.
