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

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

that a team Is never beaten until

team together and scored a touchdown In exactly three plays.

boxing and wrestling which will get

Sweet memories of first fights!
Bernle Shively, former Big Ten

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

winning the welterweight and middleweight classes with just about so
much ease. I'll guarantee that that

United Press stories released Inst Sunday contained a concensus of
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.

play was superb.

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.

Ray Saunders, Ben Fuller and

against them. But, it will be a
long, long time before the narrow
