ucoi vupy THE KENTUCKY KERNEL Tagc Eight UUL PEKI By GEORGE II. KERLER pigskin pundits knuckled their eyes and dope quivered with amazement, Kentucky's Wildcats patronwalloped Manhattan Saturday as local age watched the lovable upset written into the Big Bule's book of achievements. Manhattan's interrment marked our first major victoiy since the 'Cats trounced Tennessee two Saturday's unexpected reversal Thanksgivings ago, 27-also set off the danger flares planted here by the remainder cf Kentucky's schedule dates. Alabama, Boston College, and Tennessee may know who's coming, but they don't know snow-speck- ed 0. what's coming. f The generalship employed by Dick Robinson and later by Joe Shep herd was a grandstand coach's de light. It seemed that everything worked. By the middle of the sec ond chukker Kentucky was 19 points loftier than the Jaspers. From that moment on all the Wynnemen had to do was play safely and craftily nd keep the New Yorkers In their own territory. Aside from one late second quarter drive when the Jasps hammered their way to Kentucky's 18 yard line, the Cats were never in jeopardy. Every time the Broadway Guys crept into our back yard, we held for downs, intercepted their fren-sie- d passes, or forced them to punt. When Kentucky took the ball the quarterback ordered two offensive thrusts and then a kick. He commanded every situation admirably. Manhattan was waiting for a break a fumble or a block punt but. everything worked Saturday and the invaders never had a chance. Immediately following the Manhattan encountered them and " He was off to inquire why Dameron Davis took off his knee guard so carefully. They had intended their offense through the Wildcat line. Their, first two off tackle spurts were smacked to the sod with bewildering ease. This necessitated a Kringle kick and he obliged by booting it out on his own 39. definitely It was announced yesterday by Felix M array, manager of the boys' swimming team, that a meeting will be held Wednesday night at 7:30 o'clock in the assembly room of Bradley hall. AU boys interested in swimming are asked to report to this meeting. heads up football. We blocked and tackled effectively. The kids did everything right. The line deserves more credit than we can heap on kick-off- . for opposition. '. Kentucky's initial ground gaining attempt was just what you would expect. They practiced the play all week long. It has the aroma of the Howell-Hutso- n era. Bob Davis with two man interference starts out on a long end sweep. When the secondary is convinced that he is trying an end run. they rush toward him. All of which is Davis' signal to halt and heave to Garland who has quietly jogged down to where the safety man ought to be. However, when Bob stopped this time he threw a long, high pass which enabled the Jasper keepers to get back to Garland. Two Manhattan-lte- s socked and drove him away from the ball. Refs ruled interfer ence with a pass receiver and gave the oval to Kentucky on Manhattan's seven yard line. No protests. From this point Simpson and Hodge belted the line but it would not yield. Again Davis stepped back and started on a wide end sweep. Dick Robinson was running interference and the way he handled himself kept the Jasper tacklers in doubt as to whether he was a pass taker or just plain interference. But he led Bob so far out that the Meehanmen started after Daws thus leaving Robbie lonesome. Davis befriended him with a short toss and there was touchdown No. 1. Manhattan elected to kickoff and held the Cats to the punting point. But the Jaspers could do nothing with the ball when they tried to move so Kringle dropped back to shoed one to Davis standing on his 27. Just how Bob ever evaded that first troop of green shirts will always remain unsolved. d. He and cartwheeled his way through sixteen seizing arms and shot into the open. The next twenty yards of his journey were a matter of sprinting. When he reached the Manhattan 40 yard Etripe, a Kelly Green started to bear down on him. But Whirley Hodge, who followed the gallop down the field, jockied himself into the correct angle and bombed the Yank with a block that knocked the Oreenie into Row; 12, Section C, lan-goe- side-stepp- ed North side. And Davis went on his merry way. . Kentucky's last score capped another end run, stop, and fling a pass. This was beautifully performed by Dameron Davis and Larry Garland. Dameron got into the ball game after the New Yorkers had busily thumped Bob each play. They had a way of making sure Davis No. 1 was securely ava- lanched with each tackle. From then on Kentucky just rallied Vound tile idea of keeping Manhattan far from the Cats' home. Meehan sent in the veteran Vic Fusia to execute a few miracles. But the northerners were rattled and argued among themselves whenever a play failed. They seemed to play desperately but they were They never seemed in a stupor. to be able to shake off their conviction that victory belonged to them. It must have been a miserable afternoon for Manhatpre-ga- tan. Naturally the dressing room scene after the game was one of delirium. The Kentuckys danced, chided Alabama, and made open love to the Davis brothers. Stan Nevers was ou hand weeping joyously. And stalking through the happy thunder was Coach Chet Wynne, solemn, fusts in his hip pockets, plodding about asking who was hurt, worrying over Bob Davis' dead right arm, Hodge's twisted knee, and the bruises and cuts of the linemen. When we walked up to him. we said nothing. But Coach knew what we wanted. "That first half team was the greatest football eleven I have ever sent on the field during my stay at Kentucky. For our play through- cut the entire game it was smart, (Continued from Page One) Taking the leather 'meteor Davis found himself confronted by several Kelly Greens. Just how he danced through that first cluster is a matter of conjecture but never theless he tricked his way about, got loose at midfield and set out for the corner. Bearing down on him was Tubby Savage. Jasper fullback, at the 15 yard line when Davis' continuance was Jeopardized, Walter Hodge appeared and dove In front of the chasing Savage, toppling him with a block that was a fitting finis to a run so sensational. Garland's place kick was misdirected. Until the end of the first quarter both backfields tried line plays and third down punts. Kentucky's line proved itself just as tough and the Manhattan wall. Also the Manhattan punter was booting the ball out of bounds now instead of to Davis. Dameron Carries On On the first play of the second quarter Bob dashed around left end for nine yards and a first down. He was injured on the play and Dameron replaced him. Dameron 's first running attempt was stopped by Dorsey for an 11 yard loss. Hunny then tried a pass and if Garland had not slipped it would So Hodge have been completed. kicked to the Manhattan 35. Manhattan tried power plays and gained nothing and punted to the 9. Kentucky could do nothing and returned the kick compliment to Migdal on the Jasper 23. A line buck was interred so Migdal passed to Mitchell good for 12 yards on the visitors' 35. Flushed with success the Greenies tried another but Dameron intercepted it on the 50 and wormd his way to the Man- The dispositions of the North and the South were characterised in the Manhattan and Kentucky huddles. The Jaspers formed a rectangle. then a phalanx and then clicked into an unbalanced line. The mechanical precision was unique. But the Kentuckians wandered into their conferences and strolled out of them. Things looked loose and easy until the play. We gained 120 yards through the Manhattan tne. Better than half of what the Texas Aggies Michigan State, and Villanova could do. Their aggregate yatdage adds to 214. A medal of awarded to line who scouted Villanova. The distinction must be Caach Tom Gorman Manhattan against way we bottled up the Jasper juggernaut is evidence cf a thorough job of pigskin espionage. It is one phase of football that goes too much unnoticed and unappreciated. Miss L. Gene Musick Will Be In Charge Of Hollywood Premiere Acting as general director for Hollywood premieres from coast to coast throughout the United States, Miss L. Gene Musick, of Pittsburg, Perm., will manage the presentation of the Lexington "first night", :heduled for Wednesday and Thursday evenings, October 27 and 28, at the Ben AU theatre. For the past 16 years. Miss Musick has been actively engaged in professional work. She was a member of the cast of the John B. Rogers stock company of Frost oria, Ohio, nd later organized her own com propany, the Hoffman-Musi- ck ducing company. Miss Musick has appeared in every large city in every state in the union, and has produced plays from Maine to Florida. She was instructor for a number of years in the M. W. Barth school of dancing in Pittsburg, one of the largest schools of its kind in the United States. The last four years, she has been engaged in the direction of Hollywood premieres, having complete charge of the opening nights and producing them in accordance with true Hollywood style. Most of her time has been spent in eastern states, especially in New York and New Jersey. "The premieres are given a tremendous ovation," she stated. "We always play to capacity houses and interest in local talent always runs high." "I enjoy this type of work very much," was her further comment. "It is much more interesting than professional vaudeville and stock productions." "When searching for doubles of the stars in local people, we always find an abundance of definite types; such as Clark Gable and Robert Taylor, for the men; and Janet Gaynor, Joan Blondell, and Ginger Rogers in the women. And of course there's always Gar bo," she added. Miss Musick returned Sunday from Indianapolis, where she staged a premiere, following a first night of the game type given in Paris last week. If every day of the week, every month of the year, seven residents of New York State were picked at random and put in front of a firing squad, how long would it take New Yorkers to recognize and dread the menace?

After the Kentuckians had driven from their own 21 to the Manhattan 18 with series of line bucks and short passes, the Meehanmen start ed an excursion of their own. The assault was featured by Migdal's 27 yard run. Passes and off tackle punches brought the ball down to Kentucky's 18 stripe where Hinke- bein pounced on a fumble. Apparently Chick Meehan gave his corps a verbal shot in the arm for the Jaspers hurried into the second half with obvious pepper. But every time their offense started clicking they were penalized fifteen yards for holding or clipping. After Bob Davis carried a punt to his own 33, Vic Fusia pilfered a Cat pass on the Manhattan 40. Another holding penalty pushed the Jasps back to their 25 where they threw a pass which Simpson intercepted and sneaked to the Green's 24. Hagan made a Dodger catch of a short pass but held on to it and reached the Manhattan 17. Bee Davis slashed through to the 13 and Hodge tumbled to the Jasper seven. Caruso, however, corked the invasion by intercepting Bob's toss on his own goaline and wriggling out to the Manhattan 21. Coffin Kick The northerners tried a pass but Hinkebein clouted it to the earth Kringle punted out of bounds on Manhattan's 48. A pass Bob to Dameron netted twelve yards. An other pass went astray so Davis No. 1 strolled back and calmly and expertly kicked out of bounds on the Green s eight yard line. Manhattan was forced, to punt The Cats started another push but the Meehans bottled the attack and took the oval on their own 21. Penalties Endanger Cats A holding mulct put the ball back on Kentucky's 36 where Simpson was forced to kick out to the Manhattan 35. Try as they did the Greenies could make no cheerable gains through the Wynne wall so they were forced to punt. Bob Davis made a fancy return to Kentucky's 45 but a clipping penalty placed the ball back on the Cats' 8 yard line. Simpson booted out to the Kentucky 41 and again Manhattan tried mightily to start an offense but nothing worked. So impenetrable was the Ken tucky fortress now that with but three minutes to play the Jaspers were forced to punt and to hope for a fumble. Kentucky jabbed at the line a few times and Simpson shoed the ball to Manhattan's 34 yard line. The next five Manhattan plays A gathered 27 yards but Boaz, sub Cat guard, put out the Jasper lights when he intercepted a pass on Kentucky's 4C as the referee charged in yelping, "The ball game is over." Kentucky made 11 first downs against Manhattan's 10. Kentucky gained 120 yards from scrimmage compared to the Jaspers' 152. Ken. tucky completed 10 out of 20 passes i. good for 124 yards and Manhattan completed 6 out of 16 good for 68 yards. The Cats averaged 35 yards per punt agauist Manhattan's 29.
