On tho kick oft which was for 35 yards,

kept Thorpo from ndvnnclng tho bnll.
After n llttlo preliminary scrlmmngo,
Thorpo bothought himself that tho tlmo
was getting short. So ho tried Benedict
around tho end. Tho grandstand couldn't
tell who was running with tho ball, tho
blocking wns so well done. There woro

roached It nil right and sat thoro on tho

Shedd kicked anothor goal. That ended
