In 1913 Zefi Milan missed just one game played by his team. In 191G

Billy Sunday's Daily Sermon
Written for The Times by'the Famous Evangelist
Over the Hurdles
There's no Game in the World,
Fellows, where you can Get a
Straight-Ahead Run to the Finish
without any Obstacles from
Craps tojSalvatiojf. You've got to
Get Over Something that's In
Your Way, no matter what Task
If you're Rolling the Old Bones,
you've got to Get Past that Four
and that Ten and I understand
the Gamblers will lay you Two to
One you cant Make them. II
you're trying to Save your Soul,
the pid Devil is Jollying you
Along, Trying to tell You it's No
But this is what Struck Me.
This life we're in is More or Less
of a Hurdle Race. You've got to
Get Over a lot of High Sticks, and
there's only One, Wayto Do alt
Set your Mind on the Finish and
Go-At the Hurdles with AH the
Speed you've got.
You've all heard of Bob Simp
son, the Missouri Collegian, who
gets over 120 Yards with Ten
Lumbers 3 feet high In the Way
in 14 2-5 seconds. And Jack El
ler, the great New York cop, who
Tops the Ten Timbers in the
Same Time. Those Birds hold the
Record because they Keep Going.
Suppose - Bob or Jack would
Make Time up to the First Hurdle
and then say:

they would Get Over and then
Race to the Next and give it the
North and South and -Try to Dope
out if they could Surmount that
one. Where would they Ever Get?
But they Don't Do It that way.
They put on All the Steam they've
got At the Beginning. They go
like a Twin-Six from the Bang
of the Gun. At the First Hurdle
and the Tenth they just Set Sail
at the Stick and Top It without
the Loss of a Single Stride.
And you can Do the Same
You know the Hurdles you've
got to .Get Over. Suppose I tell
you Ten: Booze Gambling -Un-cleanliness

but that's Enoughto Start With.
ibook yourself in the Map, ladj
Have you Got One or More of
those Hurdles in Front of You, or
Maybe All of Them?
Here's the answer. Get Going!
Put On all your Speed and you
Won't Have to Stop and Look
Each of Them in the Face. You'll
find yourself Breezing over One
after the Other like a new French

No less than nine teams were unable
to fill out their teams In last night's

teros of five men each, both teams
rolled with three men on one side and
gave scores for two dummy players.
Teams which have little chance to win
