brough the whole game. His plow-

otal of 112 yards.
Suggs’ kicking wa)s a feature of tne
_rame. Although his punts were not

liwassee back. His kick-offs were
ome of the best ever witnessed on the
Ians Hill field.
Captain Carter was the pep and
laekbone of the team. At all times he
lad a word of encouragement and a
lap on the back for the boys. Cap-

ha's grasped the big problem that In
stead of educating the student aw.ay

had not been made, it 'was purely by
accident that the company wajs admit

of the trip, was interviewing the pro

gioup whom he was waiting for, in
vited. us in. Aftoi' we ■vv'ore in and
comfortably seated, he discovered his
mistake, but it was too late.
When the concert had ended and th^
gentlemen had secured their coats ana ,
hats and sufficiently tipped the porter,
