stages of the game. His low rolling
punts were hard to recover and kept
the Citadel backs guessing. The en
tire backfield starred, Sheppard being
chiefly in, the limelight. His' forty
yard run through the Citadel team,
shaking off tackler after tackler, and
finally, landing the ball over the goal
lile, was a.feature.
In the line Belser and Crouch starred
in the line. Belser kept his feet like a
ball keeps its balance. Several times
he oozed out of a tight mass of play
ers and added a number of yards to
-his gain., On one occasion he carried
half the team for fifteen yards. Crouch
got mad early in the game becanse
somebody slugged him and thereafter
there was always an opening on the
right side of the line. Twice he car
ried the ball over, twenty yards.
Legge did the most spectacular play
ing for the Citadel. He is probably
one of the lightest men playing foot
ball in the State, tipping the balance
at only iio pounds; but his work at
quarter is heady and consistent and his
return of punts is sometimes sensa
tional. Brunson, Parker and Muldrow
in the line also played good games.

THE GAME IN DETAIL
Belser made a short kick off from
the centre of the field, Legge receiving
the ball and being thrown in his
tracks. Brunson carried the ball for
no gain. Parker cross-bucked 3 yards
and Rainsford punted.
Carolina had not warmed up yet,
and the ball was lost by a fumble on
the first play.
Duckett crossed tackle for 4 yards
and Parker lost an equal amount on the
next play. Dargan received Rains
ford's punt. Perrin clipped off 4, but
Carolina got it in the neck on the
next play--15 yards for an illegal for
ward pass. The first pass for the punt
was low and Dargan made a second
try, Legge advancing the ball io
Sturgeon went off tackle for 4 yards
and Rodgers shoved the line for three.
Legge and Smith have.been starring
with their forward 'passes all season
and at this stage of, the gante got off
a neatly executed one for 6 yards.
However, Duckett gave up two of the
6 'on the next play; and 'through the
good work of Carolina's ends, the Cit
adel lost i5 for 'an unconipleted for
ward pass. An onside kick netted eo
yards and Duckett added 4.. Things
looked blue for Carolina, for on the
next play Legge shot the ball forward,
Riddle received it and crossed the goal
line. But the uproar of the Citadel
supporters was short-lived, for Riddle
was tackled and fumbled the ball, Bev
erly falling on it and metamorphosing
the 6-point touchdown into a zero
touchback. This miscue seemed to
take the heart out of the Citadel team,
and to strengthen the Carolina squad.
The cadets did not cease to fight hard,
but Carolina had found herself and
was thereafter invincible.
Sturgeon received the kick-out and
advanced 20 yards, but on the next
try a fumble lost the ball.
From well past the middle of the
field, Carolina commenced a triumphal
march. Dargan had discovered a
weak point in the opposing line; and
with Crouch clearing the way a series
of bucks was begun which finally dar
ried the ball over the line.
Belser came out of tackle and start
ed it off with a modest 6. Sheppard
swiped 3, and then made it first down.
Beverly got restless and bucked for
4, Sheppard 4, and Beverly first and
Beverly took 4 more and Dargan
thought he had his share, so Belser got
a bite at the pie. Fifteen yards was a
mouthful, so Perrin managed the next
4. Meantime Belser had swallowed
hard and was crying for more. He
took fifteen and Sheppard was given a
chance. Generous John left a 3-foot
crumb, and Belser stopped behind the
goal line. By way of an afterthought,
Belser kicked goal. Carolina 6; Cita

Sumter's goal in danger.
Sumter received the kick off the
first half, Smith catching the ball and
advanced ten yards before being
downed. Davis bucked through left
guard for seven -yards; Green hit the
sline through left tackle for three more,

to Carolina, and was immediately
punted down the field. Duffie re

his tracks. - The forward pass, Green
to Smith, was worked beautifully for
fifteen yards. Davis was called upgain,
and carried the ball through the visi

three more. Sumter was now within

for they were as repeatedly broken up
as they Were called for. The half end

The second half was largely a punt..

teams seemed a little jaded, and gains

The University Orchestra
The University Glee Club will not
be able to play at the dance, as it was
once reported. The club has not been
able to get together yet to play well
enough for such an'occasion. It takes
much practice for a set of musicians to
get in shape to play together. How
ever, the orchestra has started to work
and will be in good form for the Rod
dey Medal contest which will come off
before Christmas. Practice is held
.twice a week at the residence of Pres
ident A. C. Moore.
The club is in need of money at
present to get the necessary music and
instruments for the players. If some
of the organizations in college will
kindly advance the club a~ little finan
cial aid, they will appreciate the same
and will return it sometime soon.
