In Addition ny non MURPIIV Knoxvllle Journal Sports Editor LEXINGTON, Ky., Nov. 28. The cry of a fighting Kentucky Wildcat echoes through the Blue Grass country tonight. The mountain animal Is screaming a challenge to the world, for this afternoon on the same sacred soil which once was spotted with tho blood of fierce Indian warfare was fought a dramatic football bat-ti- c and the Wildcats eliminated Tennessc from the Southern conference championship race. Blow That Stunned The game, which was played through a driving snow and wind, found the Kentucky eleven rising to supreme heights of the season. Their stunning exhibition was accomplished with all the flonrlsh and abandon of a gladiatorial combat and the accompaniment of the thunderous roaring of some 20,000 frozen spectators. Title Hopes Gone Tennesse still remains undefeated, but the championship hopes which appeared so bright a few hours ago now haunt a murkey cell In the in the chasm of oblivion. gloom of a dismal gathering Day they passed Thanksgiving from the title picture. For three quarters the Kentucky Wildcats kept pounding at the Volunteer touchdown gates, and finally, after the brilliant Carey Spicer and "Shipwreck" Kelly had carried the ball to the three-yar- d line, Jack Phipps plunged througH for the touchdown. It was the first time a Kentucky eleven had placed a cleated hoof behind Tennessee's goal line since 1925. And there Immediately rose up a cry which shook the mountains for miles and miles around. Kentucky had outplayed and Tennessee for three quarters and their efforts had at last fruit. borne But Bobble Dodd the boy with unflinching courage gathered his mates around him and pleaded for a touchdown. Bobble Dodd persuaded those gallant Volunteers that a team Is never beaten until the final whistle Is blown. And the greatest quarterback ever to wear the Orange of Tennessee pulled his team together and scored a touchdown In exactly three plays. Then came McEvcr Gene McEvcr, who had been hemmed in nil afternoon, started the touchdown drive by taking one of Covington's punts on his own forty-fiv- e yard line and returning to strip.

From there Bobble Dodd whizzed a pass through the chilly atmosphere to Buddy Hack-ma- n gain, for a moVlng Tennessee up to the three-yar- d line. The game was fast Hearing a close and it looked as if Tennessee might yet be defeated. But on the next play, Hackman crashed through for the remaining distance and a touchdown. Major Ncyland rushed several substitutes into the fray and it fell the lot of Paul Heydrick to try for the extra point. But Heydrick failed. Well, You Tell It scene for It was a heart-breakithe loyal supporters of the courageous Kentucky eleven. With victory in their grasp, Bobble Dodd changed and Buddy Hackman things so quickly that even now they are trying to figure out Just how it all happened. There Stood Kentucky is balking The old typewriter again. It may quit most any minute, but before this tale is told let's pay tribute to a great Kentucky eleven. They deserved to win the football game today. From the start of the game they had and outplayed Tennessee. But, folks, they didn't outfight the Volunteers.

THE COLONEL COMMENTS Weill football seasons are just about over and the pigskin has gone the way of all flesh back into the linen closet until next fall when "Pest" Welch and Bill Banker and the rest of the 1929 stars will be forgotten and some new lights (not fish) will take their place. And while we are waiting for the basketball team to make its premier showing, let's think about some other things as antidotes for aenemic ath letic addicts. First of all, there is boxing and wrestling which will get under way pretty soon and how! Sweet memories of first fights! Bernle Shively, former Big Ten heavyweight wrestling champ, will get his football boys in action soon and the square ring will come into its own again. And what a relief to many ambitious "pugs" is the absence of Cap Wright, the little boy with the big fist. Cap waded through the rough in a big way for the last two years, winning the welterweight and middleweight classes with just about so much ease. I'll guarantee that that young southpaw carried more kick rolled up his left sleeve than an jackass after somebody doctored his oats with kerosene. Down Georgiah way, this fellow Ed Danforth sure do lak th' Wildcats. Yas suh, they warn't nothln to good fer him to say about Gloomy's team after the Kalntuck boys give McEver a kick in the pants. Maybee, Alabam and Vandy couldn't stop the Vols but Danforth shore thot the Blue did it in great style. " With Seal in Either Blue or Gold? Drury Forquer Kelly United Press stories released Inst Sunday contained a concensus of teams picked by the leading sport writers in this section of the country. Three Kentucky regulars were placed on these teams. Pete Drury, playing his last season on tho Wildcat varsity, was named as one of the tackles on the first team. Last fall, Drury was also prominently mentioned for honors but It was his stellar performance during tho past season that gained him n place in the second eleven. Shipwreck Kelly, sophomore halfback, who burned up tho southern gridirons this fall was placed In tho second team backficld. He was one of the outstanding backs in collegiate football and for a long time lead the Southern Conference scorers. "Floppy Forquer, dependable lineman, was one of the choices for gunrd on tho third team. Tho consistent work of the "Newcastle Deacon" has been tho shining light of the Blue forward wall this season and many fans were greatly surprised that he was not placed on the first eleven. inumtmmmttattttttmmmmmm i:m BIG TEN SELECTIONS University Commons By NEA First Team Fcslcr, Ohio State, end.

Hats off to the Kentuck-lan- sl No true Tcnncsscnn will offer any alibi. Kentucky would have scored earlier In the game had It not been for the masterful punting of Bobble Dodd. Playing behind a rugged, mountainous lino which outweighed the Vols something like twenty pounds to the man, Kelly, Covington, Phipps, and Spicer gave tho Vols plenty of trouble. They drove off tackle with the power of a steam roller. Phipps, The Hero Kelly was advertised more widely than nny other member of the Wildcat backficld, but when it comes to singling out the real hero let the fingers point toward Jack Phipps. Tony Holm, wlthall his bruising power, would have been no match for Phipps today. He rendered untold punishment to the Vol forwards and his defensive play was superb. Wc Note Mr. Finney Also Jim Finney played football as he has never played before. He was against the snow with a throw. When some Wildcat waltzed out into the open and seemed headed for a long gain, Jim Finney could always be counted on to come tearing out and stop him. Several times Finney was down on punts with the ends. He did everything. It marked the last time "Smiling Jim" will ever face the Wildcats. But they won't soon forget that boy. Nor Will Kentucky Forget It Ray Saunders, Ben Fuller and Captain Howard Johnson fought like demons for a drooping cause. The gallant Hobo Thayer was also in the thick of the battle until he departed in the second quarter with an injured shoulder. The game has been played. Kentucky's victory flares are lighting up the country for miles around tonight, but when one stops to think, Tennessee still has a string consecutive games of twenty-nin- e played with only one defeat charged against them. But, it will be a long, long time before the narrow escape will be forgotten. Toast To 'Tucky The typewriter has absolutely re fused to respond.
