Early in the hrst quarter VVaco took the ball on its own 30 and, aided by a strong wind, pushed the Corsicana line back, back, back, until it was finally stop- ped on the Corsicana I foot line. This, however, didn't end the threat, for Bowen returned the kick out to the Corsicana I3 on a beautiful run. ln four plays the Tigers scored.
