vai ciuik KENTUCKY 925 Football Season Record of Brilliant Triumphs History of Is 1 (By WARREN A. PRICE) One of the most glorious chapters of the University of Kentucky's football history was written Inst fall as a result of the successes and achievements of the Wildcat grid team, which, beginning the season on September 2G with a notable triumph over Maryville and ending with a spectacular win over Tennessee on Turkey day, swept through nine battles, winning six and losing three, including victory over Centre for the first time in eight years. v.- i'- - i - 4 -r ?! 6t Kentucky's record; the 25 to 0 dc-- l lent at the hands of the Washington and Lee Gcnernls. The Vireinlnns ox hibited such a varied assortment of passes that it made the Wildcats groggy. Bullet-lik- e shots mined to all quarters of the field, always ending their flight by settling into the arms of a waiting General. Kentucky, playing her worst game of the year, wns afflicted with a condition from, which rtll teams suffer when they nttempt to play football on one of their off days. .10 Wildcats Kepnrt In the opening days of September, 30 Wildcats reported to Coach Murphy. Immediately they donned the moleskins and started their daily practice sessions, which lasted throughout the season. Everything pertaining to football functioned in perfect harmony, and when the student body returned on September 20 they were amazed to find a trained and well organized squad of Blue and White football players going through their daily grind on Stoll Field. Although the spirits of the uni- versity were somewhat dampened by the loss of the great Sanders, captain of the 1924 eleven, Sauer, and Turner Gregg, they rose to normality when they saw who was to take their places, the members of the preceding year's freshmen aggregation, Jenkins, Phipps, Mohney, Moloney, Ross, Ellis, Wert, Pence, Hickcrson, Edwards, Kirkcndall, nnd Schultc. Of the veterans, Captain Kirwan, Cavemnn Rice, VnnMcter, Montgom- ery, Tracy, Hughes, Smith, Dellnvcn, Hickel, Creech, Portwood, Derrick, Evans, Harbold nnd Vossmeyer were back in their original positions, some of them prepared to mnkc their Inst year on the varsity contribute to n most successful season. Maryville Surprises On September 20, Mnryville College, from the mountains of Tennessee, sent their pigskin performers into the Blue Grass to help inaugurate Kentucky's football season. Stoll Feld wns the scene of the engagement nnd nlso the scene of some very ragged playing on the part of both teams, which is usually the procedure of opening games. The first half of the contest was hotly contested, neither side gaining a decided advantage over the other one. Toward the latter part of the first half Kentucky kicked in. her territory and was blocked by a Maryville man, who picked the ball up and ran for a touchdown, the only points they scored during the entire game. In the second half, the Wildcats got , busy and rolled two touchdown ncross the gonl lo win the gnme, 1.1 to 7. October 3, Coach Murphy's charges, nccompnnled by 1,200 rooters, entered Chicago to piny their first game against n Big Ten team, nn accomplishment thnt hns not been done before in the history of the institution. The University of Chicago's team, un-dthe nble conchlng of Alonzo Stagg, met the Wildcnls on Stngg Held in the presence of the largo delegation of Kentucky supporters and approxi mately 30,000 other spectators, which is the Inrgcst crowd that a Kentucky team hns ever performed before. Five Ynrds McCnrty, the most famed of Chicago's gladiators, wns downed on every attempt he made to carry the ball but a lesser Maroon satellite, Rouse, exhibited the only real offensive play of the game, scoring the only touchdown, thereby aiding to beat Kentucky by a small score of 5) to 0. On the following Saturday the Wih cnts entertained Clemson nnd wrenched from tlicni a hnrtl earned victory, 10 to 0. Sewnnee was the next victim, being beaten in a tight gnme, M to 0. of After suffering the ignominy seven consecutive annual defeats, the get Wildcats journeyed to Dnnville to revenge from their grentcst rival, Centre, November 1. Centre did not know in which direction to turn to get nwny from thnt snnrling, charging the horde of Wildcats, who pushed Colonel far enough to get a 10 to 0 victory. Following this triumph, the Crimson Tide of Alabamn met the Wildcats in Birmingham nnd ndministered a severe drubbing of 31 points to Kentucky, who wns minus the services of Smith nnd Hughes. A week later, the 'Cats ntoncd for their setback at the hands of Alabama by conquering V. M. I. nt Charleston, W. Va., by the county of 7 to 0. In one of the most spectacular to take this opportunity to thank the Students of the University for their patronage, and We wish i wish them every success.

The alternate exposure to the action of salt water and air is a severe test. While the pipe shown in the picture is subjected to unusual corrosive influences, all underground pipe must be able to withstand corrosion to a greater or less degree. Cast Iron Pipe has this quality.
