OF ROLLA'S TEAM
"Co-Eds" Sigh Because the
Isn't a Tiger.
"Who is that big, tall man who does
all the kicking for Rolla J" asked the
co-ed in the golf sweater at the football
''That's Macomber," replied her es
cort. "O, I do wish he were a Tiger," sighed
And many others in the bleachers
wished often during the game Macomber
was a Tiger. He it was who "booted"
the ball thirty-five or forty yards when
ever his team was held for downs, who
stopped many a Tiger play behind the
line, who executed the forward pass
for Rolla and carried the ball for fully
two-thirds of the total distance gained
by the Miners.
"Rolla is a one-man team, and a good
team at that," said Captain Miller of
the Tigers to a reporter for the Uni
ersity Missourian after the game.
"That man is Maeomler. He played
hard and he played fair. I never went
against a better sportsman."
Sumner Macomber is his full name,
and he plays left half back. Before go
ing to Rolla, he was a star on the Dcs
Moines, la., high school team.
SIDELINE NOTES ABOUT THE
GAME WITH HEFTY MINERS
The tone of the yelling told the
progress of the game. It started slow
ly and without much volume. For a
while it was flippant and challenging.
Then,early in the game when Rolla
ran the ball dangerously near the Tiger
goal, it changed to an appeal,, a com
mand to the Tigers. ''Hold that line,
hold that line," the bleachers chanted
desperately. 'And Missouri held.
The souvenir score books, which made
their first appearance at the Rolla
game Saturday, were the best ever seen
on Rollins Field. Besides the line-up,
they contained pictures of fifteen Tigers,
together with Coaches Monilaw and
Anderson, Referee Bonnifield, and the
Rolla coach, Livingston. A neat two
colored cover, showing a crouching
Tiger, was a feature of the book.

the big Tiger tackles, were on the side
lines, ready to go into the game de
spite their injuries if Monilaw called
on them. Anderson is suffering from a
sprained ankle, but whenever Missouri
made a gain he pranced like a soubrette.
Once or twice his teammates, fearful
that his ankle might give way under
his enthusiastic gyration-, forced him
to sit down.

The Aggies made a touchdown on a
well-executed delayed pass, and the
other four points resulted from a place

"Silent Yell" from Girls.
Owing to the absence of the band and
to the confidence of the students in a
victory over Rolla. the mass meeting
held in the auditorium Friday evening
was not up to the standard in enthu
siasm. Speeches were made by W. F.
Woodruff, Harry Hunt, "Red" Wilson
and others, and yells were practiced.
The sensation of the evening came when,
at the request of the men, the Uni
versity girls were called upon to give
some yells. The response was the most
silent instant of the meeting.

W. W. Wright and Edmund Wilkes
