actly 3.30 when Cochran,, of the local
team, kicked off to DuBois. Toner, of
DuBois, getting the ball and advancing
ten yards when he was tackled by De

to gain and punted to Phillips, In mid-.

-advanced steadily and then DeHart, by
great end run, took it over for a
touchdown. Durlug the remainder of
the half the ball see-sawed back and
forth in the middle ot the field.
In the second half, Cochran, of the
loc&ls, kicked off to DuBois, Baughman
recovering the ball on the bounce and
advanced about ten yard? and then
kicked it, a DuBois man recovering the
ball and going for a touchdown. The
play was illegal and a touchdown
was not allowed. The ball was taken
" back to mid-field and given to DuBois
After a succession of line bucks, DuBois
failed to gain their distance and the
ball went to the locals, who started on
a march for another touchdown, De
hart, Cochran and Murray carrying the
ball for good gains. Murray was a tow
er of strength going through the line
and Dahart shone brilliantly on his end
runB, By a few end runs and line bucks
Reynoldsville advanced the ball to the
20 yard line, when DeHart was given
the ball and by a olever. run, dodging
here and there, succeeded In going
through the whole DuBois team for a
touchdown. This was one of the best
plays of the game. DeHart kicked goal
nd the score stood 11-0 In Reynolds--Vllle'g
favor. The reBt of the game was
played mostly In DuBois territory, the
boys fighting bravely all the time.
The Reynoldsville line played well
and too mush credit cannot be given to
the local boys. The two ends, Alexan
der and Pierce, played a nloe game and
broke up many of the plays that DuBois
tried to pull off. Phillips, who held
down the quarter-back position for the
locals, played steadily at all tlmea and
succeeded in running back all the
punts for nice gains. He was on the
job at all times. The Reynoldsville
back field played well at all times dur
ing the game and was a tuwer of
strength. Toner, of DuBois, starred
for bis team, he being the only player
that could gain through the local's line.
The game was attended by about 500
fans and there was much cheering. Fol

The story is that Joe started for

out of tbe barn and up the track to
wards Reynoldsville at a furious rate.
The car climbed the Wlshaw hill faster
