Ames in Perfect Trim.
An ideal football day, except for a
brisk wind, tilled the bleachers on each
side of the gridiron with spectators,
many of whom considered victory a
foregone conclusion. But when the
Ames players in their scarlet jerseys
spread across the field for the kickoff,
they made a beautiful mosaic, unpleas
ant to Mi-souri eyes. Every man looked
in the pink of condition.
Three time- Ames carried the pigskin
over the Tiger.-' goal line, but once only
did the mighty "Si" Lambert succeed
in kicking goal.
Alexander, Driver, Gilchrist, Miller
and Ristin" played well for the Tigers.
Miller was great on breaking up in
terference, lecovering fumbles and tack
ling; Gilchrist was the ground gainer
for the Tiger?, Ristine recovered many
Lambert's Great Punts.
E. Lambert frequently booted the ball
sixty yards, and it was this that pre
vented the Tigers from scoring. Only
once did a Tiger get through the line
on an attempt to block those kicks,
and then Lambert calmly stepped to one
side and lwotcd the ball sixty yards.
The Tigers were frequently within
striking distance of Ames' goal, but
either fumbled the ball or were held
The first touchdown was made after
seven minutes of play. Deatherage
fumbled a punt on the Tigers' twenty
yard line, Nelson recovering it for Ames.
G. Lambert advanced the ball ten yards,
and E. Lambert smashed through the
line for a touchdown.
This was all the scoring in the first
half. The Tigers kept the ball in Ames'
territory until the whistle blew, but
whenever the "Cyclones'" goal was in
danger Lamlert put the ball back into
the center of the field.

Ann--' second score came after fifteen
minutes of play in the second half. On
a forward pa.-s Williams fumbled the
ball to Ames on Missouri's forty-eight
yard line. Knox took the ball on a
fake forward pass and made a spec
tacular run of forty-eight yards for the
touchdown, his interference being per

The third touchdown was also made
as the result of a fumble, on the Ti
gers' two-yard line, Law recovering the
ball for Ames. The Tigers braced and
the Aggies failed to gain through the
line, but the ancient criss-cross play
worked and E. Lambert carried the
ball out for the touchdown.
Ames used the open style of play al
together, with perfect interference. The
Tigers used mass play and open play,
but in the latter were greatly inferior
to the Iowans. The Tigers were glar
ingh weak on the defense. Their style
of olTcn.-e was good, but they were

Missouri won the toss and chose to
defend the west goal, having the wind
at its back. E. Lambert kicked off for
Ames. Driver returned the ball eight

Soprano Soloist Delights
Audience at the
Miss Mary Fay Sherwood, in an accordion-pleated
semi-Empire silk gown,
and in excellent voice, was the chief
delight of the audience which heard the
International Symphony Club Friday
evening in the lirst number of the Y.
M. C. A. lecture course, given in the
auditorium of the University of Mis
souri. Miss Sherwood is the soloist with
the club. She was heard in two double
numbers, and was repeatedly encored,
her colorful and pure soprano voice
winning instant favor. Her manner in
"Comin' Through the Rye," which she
sang as an encore, perhaps lacked ani
mation, but in the onomatopoetie swal
low song, her voice, soaring and trilling,
gave a vocal representation of the flight
of a bird possible only through finished
technique. She sings in four languages,
and was especially pleasing in Arditi's
"Parla." Her voice is not of operatic
caliber, but her fine phrasing and deli
cate tonal effects were delightful.
The program altogether was so sat
isfactory that all who had the good
fortune to hear it gave thanks to M. H.
("Reuben") Pemberton, who agreed to
finance the lecture course after it had
been abandoned, and made possible
the appearance here of the club. Many
who heard the concert agreed that it
alone was well worth the price of the
season lecture ticket.
The first number of the evening,
Suppe's plaintive and exquisite "Poet
and Peasant," called forth the full or
chestral strength of the club. Nicokolia
SokolofT, the violin soloist, and Mr.
Heindl, cellist, gave selections especially
fitted to display their mastery over
their instruments, and both were hearti
ly encored. Mr. Scheers, the flute so
loist, accomplished the difficult feat of
holding an audience's attention through
a "heavy" selection of unusual length.
The program closed with a spirited
interpretation of Liszt's "Hungarian
Fantasia," and the audience departed
with evident regret that its musical
treat was at an end.

goal they would have scored, and then would have played the Ames'
bunch off their feet. As it was the effect of that touchdown was to
Ames' advantage. The Tigers were slow in getting into action when
playing on the defensive. The style of the Tigers' defense was especially
planned to block the open play used by Ames, but the men did not start
fast enough. The Tigers were in as good condition as the Ames men and
were well matched with them in weight."
Coach Williamson of Ames University said: '"The Tigers' weakest
point in my opinion is their fumbling. They are also weak on defense,
being slow in getting started. I think that my men were in much bet
ter condition that the Missouri boys. It was given out in the score book
that the Ames team weighed about the same as the Missouri team, but
as a matter of fact our team averages about 103 pounds, and probably
is ten pounds lighter to the man."

IMPERIAL RESCRIPT RECEIVED
Moral Code is Publicly Read
Wherever Sons of Nippon
Tomorrow, when the Americans will
cast their votes for President for the
next four years, the Japanese students
of the University will celebrate the
fifty-sixth birthday anniversary of Mut
suhito, the 121st Emperor of Japan, a
descendant of the Jimmu dynasty, a
family which has ruled Japan for the
last 2,508 j ears.
Aside from the military reviews, of
ficial receptions, banquets and other
public entertainments and amusements
common to national holidays of other
nations, the Japane-e have adopted a
custom which has been followed
throughout Japan and in foreign cities
where Japanese gather to honor their
present emperor, during whose reign the
island empiie ha- become a world
This custom is the public reading of
His Imperial Rescript on Education, a
moral code which has been adopted by
many public schools in America and
Europe where religion is excluded from
the course of instruction.
The rescript was first read before the
Japanese Parliament in 1890 when the
Japanese began to have a representative
legislature. Through the courtesy of
Mr. Matsuhara, Imperial Japanese Con
sul at Chicago, a copy of the revised
translation of the rescript recently ap
proved by the Japanese government has
been received here.
Text of the Rescript.
It reads as follows:
"Know ye, our subjects:
"Our Imperial Ancestors have found
ed our Empire on a basis broad and
everlasting and have deeply and firmly
implanted virtue; Our subjects ever
united in loyalty and filial piety have
from generation to generation illus
trated the beauty thereof. This is the
glory of the fundamental character of
Our Empire, and herein also lies the
source of our education. Ye, Our sub
jects, be filial to your parents, affec
tionate to your brothers and sisters;
as husbands and wives be harmonious;
as friends true; bear yourselves in mod
esty and moderation; extend your be
nevolence to all; pursue learning and
cultivate arts, and thereby develop in
tellectual faculties and perfect moral
powers; furthermore advance public
good and promote common interests; al
ways respect the constitution and ob
serve the laws; should emergency arise,
ofter yourselves courageously to the
State; and thus guard and maintain
the prosperity of Our Imperial Throne
coeval with heaven and earth. So shall
ye not only be Our good and faithful
subjects, but render illustrious the best
traditions of your forefathers.
"The way here set forth is indeed
the teaching bequeathed by Our Imp
erial Ancestors, to be observed alike
by Their Descendants and the subjects,
infallible for all ages and true in all
places. It is Our wish to lay it in
heart in all reverence, in common with
you, Our subject-, that we may all
thus attain to the tame virtue."

Vice-President Delano and
General Manager Miller

Promise New Station.
TO IMPROVE ROLLING STOCK
ON BRANCH IMMEDIATELY
Officials Say They Realize
Owing to publications in the Univer
sity Missourian showing the unsanitary
conditions of the Wabash station in Co
lumbia, the cheap character of rolling
stock on the Columbia branch, and the
great profit the railroad reaps monthly
from this, the richest section of track
and the poorest in equipment, new roll
ing stock is to be put on at once, and
a new station is to be built here.
F. J. Delano, vice-president of the
railroad, and Henry Miller, general
manager, called Saturday at the office
of the University Missourian in Aca
demic Hall and personally pledged
themselves that these improvements
mentioned would be made.

"Columbia will be a town of 25,000
people within a few years," Mr. Delano
observed, "and I am sure the University
will have 5,000 students. The Wabash
intends to be ready to take care of the
future as well as the present business
in Columbia, both freight and passen
ger. A new station and better terminal
facilities arc immediate needs, and they
will be supplied at once."
Mr. Delano asked what the most
pressing need here is. and when told it
was the substitution of better coaches
on the Columbia branch, he said:
Better Equipment Promised.
"A division official has reported to me
that electrically lighted cars cannot be
placed on the branch, but I do not see
why this should be so. Better coaches
will in any event be installed at once.
The roadbed on the branch is in first

station would be built, probably north
east of the present station, as soon as
a site for it could be purchased. The
