the Tigers was apparent. Early in the

But the most impressive feature of the
game was the manner in which the Ben-
gals handled the vaunted Tyler passing
attack. Though the Lions were able to
complete 18 out of 37 passes, few of them
were good for more than 2 or 3 yard
gains, and their aggregate gain was small.

Blanton made the 'nnal Waco score in the
same period when he, behind beautiful
blocking, skirted his own right end and
dashed through the Tyler secondary for
70 yards to pay dirt.
The fine spirit of the Tigers in this,
a game which would have been a let-
down affair for many a lesser team, was
especially notable. Leo Blanton's fine
passing, the bruising running of Pulattie
and the apparent superiority of the Tiger
line were very encouraging to Tiger fans.

during the night preceding the game
made the field such a muddy loblolly that
a true test of strength was impossible. A
sustained drive in the first period gave the
Tigers the only touchdown of the after-
noon. During the rest of the game the
ball remained between the 20 yard stripes,
with Waco generally holding the ad-
vantage. In this game the Tigers scored
fewer points than in any game since
