DHS   *   Murphy of Mobile   *

*Murphy cancelled game - we understand it was because Murphy had scouted Demopolis and knew how good they were.  Mobile said that they could not get the stadium.  Demopolis offered to have game here but Murphy refused.  The game contract was cancelled and that was the end of Murphy!
