games that were played to determine which Quartet of teams should go Into the semifinals for the Ciscos triumph over Cieburne ran true to prediction and was thoroughly in keeping with the re cent record of tho Lobo Wacos victory over Temple ran true to form as uiii Beaumonts win over Marshall on Ye in none of these games did the general run of fans anticipate clear cut Oak Cliff proved lo be ihe big Although defeated dur ing the early part of the week by Korest high of Dallas In the race for the city the Oak Cliff with the Indomitable Lynch in the romped away to a victory the scrapping Ver non Three hard games In ten days was too much for any It was nnd or this reason Yernon was given a slight edge over the The 39 to 0 scoretells a different Cisco Oak Clllf Although no definite announce ment has rande It Is Jikely hat Cisco ana eak Cliff will be ogalost esch other to deter mine which will the Beaumont and Waco probably will meet for the third time In four years to decide which will go Into ihe final Ciscos 30 to 0 win over Cie much less than it could have had the Loboes been forced to expend gives every promise of West Texas having a contender for the honor of playfqf for the slate Oak Cliffs oneslued whipping of Ver non throws a cloak over the bright promise Cisco had Saturday and present indications are that the game between these two will a toss Cisco is rated a twenty or thirty point better team than Vernon at tho smallest and this would Indicate that the Loboes and the Leopards are almost on a If the two teams are scheduled to meet this week It will mean craftiness nnd speed to the extreme against physical pow er and an Indomitable fighting spirit that apparently has become a part of the The same would be the case If Waco was sent against Cisco for

to give unlimited attention to their Beaumont has been unusually luckin her the two touchdown victory over Hous ton Central with hardly a single first down attesting to Beau recovered two fumbles which gave them the Waco ia another problem that Cisco and Oak Cliff are entirely undecided about The team that has fought its way Into tha semi finals for the past two years is a thing o history and the 1914 ma chine Is made up almost entirely of men that have been developed last year and this by The 2 to 0 drubbing handed Temple was something of a surprise even to Waco fans and scouts attending the ClscoCleburne game Friday and raised their hopes for the pos sibility of the Tigers pulling through with the title for the sec ond time within three Two Hard If Beaumont meets Waco this week and Cisco goes against Oak Cliff tt will be an extremely Inter esting week for followers of the high school It will mean for the fifth consecutive year this dis trict has been one of the chief contenders
