TECH HIGH. TRIUMPHANT
AFTER 9 YEARS OF EFFORT
Vanquish Central High tn Greatest Lo
cal Thanksgiving Day Struggle—
S.OOO Spectators See Maroon and
lit winniug yesterday from Central
H>gi- school by the score of IS to 12.
Ie veteran Tech team crashed every
re ird existing betvveeu the two elev
! <. since first meeting Hi 1905. First
aud foremost they won, a feat neier be
fore attained, sivoiii they crossed i en
tr:i '< goal line, a hitherto nnaccom

have . rashed for all time the wide be

team 111 a _:rv.e with the older school s
gridiron representatives. The curtain
nas now drawn on local football for
1312. its fiill being attended by a big
celebration, in which every honor that
could be bestowed on an eleven which
atter ten \ears has placed a victory ou
Tech s cred t side, was houl.
The weather titan conspired to make
it a long remembered day. While the
temperature was mild, the tang so in
Mgorating to the warriors was missing:
but there could have been nothing bet
ter for the tans, who turned oat to the
umntv. i • S.OOO. It was the greatest
Thanksgiving Day rowd ever in at
tendance a; a local game. Moreover
the crowd never saw such a game, when
breaks of unexpected kinds could turn
the tattle so completely one way or an
The resutt of the game did not
the dope, still the victory was not as
de is-.ve as the wagers predicted. This
is no to i>e wondered at. as Central
ll.gh came back and played the best'
game of the season, showing aa offense,
remarkable in the face of its veteran
opponents, Central's strength was of
no avail against s more "killed eleven,
whose individual ba.'krie'i stars out
numbered that of the vanquished elev
There never was a game so full of
breaks which coul i turn the tide of'
battle from one side to the other. A
duke. a tumble, an unexpected penalty,
a stolen forward pass all contributed
an element of uncertainty to the <trug
aie that made the final result prob
lematical. until Beck on a beautiful
trick play rounded the end in the final
period for his thirl touchdown.
Central started the game kick.ug the
ball and scored a touchdown on a fluke
ou th» kickoff. Rote kicked to Tech's
ten-yard line where, a.-cording to the
offi. ials. Beach touched the pigskin al
lowing it to cross the line. Smelt ser
tiiere fell on the ball and officials de
cided it was a touchdown. Rote missed
the try for the goai by iuches. It all
happened so quickly that .spectators
did not recover for an instaut. This
unusual piece of luck at the outset
made Tech fight an uphill batt'.e which
was more than evened before the first
period was ended.
Rote again kicked to Brits-h, who
was downed on the - s -yard line. The
Maroon and Urey ba -;s took the ball
un nterruptedly to the 15-yard line
where they were held for downs. Smoltz- •
or fumbled the ball on the first play.
Beck recovering the ball, this being
tre second b'eart in the game to lead
to a score. Hock in two plunges cov- 1

goal and To. h was one point to the

CAPTAIN BECK GRADUATES
Tech Will Lose Six and Central High

uation. the Maroon and Grey's loss is
greater for the individual stars who
have been responsible for Tech's great
football season which has been crowned
by a victory over Central High will go;
out in the spring.
Beck, the fullback whose efforts
have won him great fame on the grid
iron, is the greatest loss. His line 1
plunging was of the highest order an i
he formed a pivot for a backtield of
sta-s of exceptional merit. Bech. a half
back. will be graduated. The punter.

will Emanuel, one of the fastest ends
n the scholastic game. Ciess and Steit
ler will be a loss to the eleven.
The backfield on the Central High
team will suffer from the same cause.
Roth and Smeltzer. stur iy men of abil
, ity, will be the greatest loss to the
team. They are accomplished players
and ha\ e gained a lot of ground for'
ventral High. Two ends, Winn and
Lynch, will be graduated. Smucker
and Byers will also leave school in the

nucleus for the team next year. As
bright almost as Central's chances will
