TYLER IS THROWN OUT OF CHASE, BUT DOES NOT HELP LOCALS
LONGVIEW - Speaking of bowls and champions, the Longview high school Loboes were in possession of the Gravy Bowl championship fo district 10 Thursday, but very much without the gravy, the bowl or the championship.

With the announcement of the ineligibility of a Tyler high school football player and the withdrawal of the Lions from the schoolboy football race, Longview gained possession of first place in the 1935 district race. But the recognition gained little or nothing, for the Loboes are not eligible to play in bi-district or quarterfinal competition, Roy B. Henderson, Interscholastic league head, ruled Thursday. The whole district 10 was disqualified from the race since the district had approved of Tyler as the champions.

The ineligible player on the Tyler team did not compete against Longview or Gladewater in games this year, but he did play against Sulphur Springs, Marshall, Texarkana and Kilgore. If precedent is followed - this is changing all victories over teams against which the ineligible player participated - the final district standing is as follows:

1) Longview (5-0-1); .833%
2) Texarkana (4-1-1); .800%
3) Sulphur Springs (3-2-1); .750%
4) Marshall (3-0-3); .500%
5) Kilgore (2-0-4); .333%
6) Tyler (1-0-4); .200%
7) Gladewater (0-1-4); .000%

Since both Gladewater and Tyler played ineligible players in their game, the game is thrown out.

RECORDS SHOW LOBOES UNBEATEN IN DISTRICT PLAY
LONGVIEW - If records kept by the Longview News-Journal are correct, the Longview high school Loboes were undefeated in District 10 competition, the play-by-play report of the Tyler-Longview game shows.

Longview lost two conference games during the season, one to Gladewater and one to Tyler. The Gladewater game was marked off the books when the Bears withdrew from the race when ineligible players were found to be playing on the squad.

Last week Tyler withdrew from the schoolboy race when Alexander, substitute end, was found to be over the age limit. According to a report from Tyler, Alexander did not play with the Lions in the Lobo game, in which case Tyler's victory over Longview would be valid.

A play-by-play report of the game carried by the News-Journal showed that Alexander went in for Hicks at the opening of the fourth quarter.

The final district standings will now be as follows:

1) Longview (6-0-0); 1.000%
2) Texarkana (4-1-1); .800%
3) Sulphur Springs (3-2-1); .750%
4) Marshall (3-0-3); .500%
5) Kilgore (2-0-4); .333%
6) Gladewater (0-1-4); .000%
7) Tyler (0-0-5); .000%

ACTUAL GAME ARTICLE BELOW
LONGVIEW - Striking fast with a 58-yard aerial heave for a touchdown early in the opening quarter, the Tyler Lions took a lead that they never relinquished and went on a roll over their annual Armistice Day rivals, the Longview Loboes, 19-7, and maintain their mathematical chance for the district title, here Monday afternoon.

On the second play after they had taken possession of the ball on a punt, on their own 37 yard line Gayle Campbell dropped back and shot a long pass to Jack Orbison, who started the game in place of G.L. Bryson at fullback, the latter taking the pass in stride on the Lobo 46 yard marker and weaved his way down the field to pay dirt, feinting to the sidelines to draw his only remaining tackler, Jack Skipper, out of position to race the rest of the way unmolested. James High Daniel added the extra point.

From that point on to the half the Lions threatened twice but both drives were repulsed by the lighter Lobo line within striking distance of the goal and the score remained the same until the mid game rest.

The Lions second marker came in the middle of the third period after Bradley recovered Skipper's fumble on the Lobo 30 yard line. Gayle Campbell scored on the first play as he followed his interference around right end only to cut back off tackle and reverse his field to outdistance his would be tackler and go across the goal line standing up. Daniel missed the try from placement.

Campbell added the final Lion marker late in the fourth period as he took Skipper's punt in midfield and behind perfect intercepted trotted half the length of the field for the score.

The lone Lobo score came a few minutes later when Campbell, forced to kick from behind his own goal line after a clipping penalty against one of his mates had placed the ball back on the Lion 2-yard stripe, had his punt blocked by Vern Spiva, Lobo end, and Paul Whatley, Spiva's running mate, fell on the loose ball behind the line for the six points. Skipper added the extra point by placement.

Led by Gayle Campbell, Orbison and Happy Miles, the Lions piled up nine first downs to the Loboes six and gained 154 yards from scrimmage to the home eleven's 110.

In addition to turning to his two touchdown jaunts, Campbell also contributed several nice punts and intercepted pass returns shaking off would-be tacklers like so many flies as he sped through the entire Lobo eleven for gains of 37, 32, 39 and three or four gains of more than 10 yards. He was perhaps the outstanding offensive star of the game, doing all of his team's punting and passing as well, while in the game.

Orbison's work was not far behind as the light sub fullback made a serious bid for the starting post in the two remaining games this season.

On the defensive side for the Lions, captain John Krattiger and Daniel were shining lights. Time after time this pair teamed up to break through and smear the vaunted Skipper and his running mate, George Black, for either no gain or losses. Daniel also played heads-up ball in getting down the field under Campbell's soaring punts to down Skipper in his tracks three times as he attempted to break away after taking the kicks.

This pair was able aided, however, by the whole Lion front wall, consisting of J.D. Bradley, Woodrow Johnson, Clyde Bickley, Leon Hicks and Elston Campbell.

For the Loboes, Skipper was practically the whole show as far as an offensive threat was concerned, although Black did some credible punting and passing as he alternated with his more famous fullback in these duties.

In the line, Dick Brannon, Spiva and Simms were doing the most damage to the Lion attack.
