CAUGHT BETWEEN PLAYS WHILE
MISSOURI BATTLED WITH DRAKE
When the Tigers trotted on the field
in the blankets presented to them by
the Engineers, they made a striking
appearance and xvere greeted with lusty
cheers by the fexv Missouri rooters who
Drake never got nearer to Missouri's
goal than the txventy-yard line. Mc
Coy then tried for another field goal,
but Alexander blocked the attempt and
carried the ball back forty yards before
The Drake students betxveen halves
rushed around the cinder track to the
side of the field occupied by the Tigers
and jeered at them. This hooting may
have had something to do with the
brand of football the Tigers displayed
in the second half.
After the game, while the team was
xxaiting for a street car to take them
into toxvn, the small delegation of Mis
souri "rooters" lined up and xvith the
Tigers' aid gave all of the Tiger yells
and songs in their extensive repertoire.
They continued this all the xxay into
toxvn. Arrixing in front of their hotel
all gave the nexv yell before saing good
by. The Tigers xvorked the ball to within
the Drake fifteen-yard line three times
in the first half and txvice in the sec
ond half, but counted nothing on these
five opportunities. In the first half, the
Tigers rushed the oval to the Drake
five-yard line once, but were held for
doxvns by inches.
Drake students have some excellent
yells, and ex en the girls "rooted' and

Punting of Little for the
Teachers is Feature
Score 5 to 0.
The Teachers College High School de
feated the Columbia High School at
football Saturday morning on Kollins
Field, by a score of 5 to 0. The game
xxas xx ell-played by both teams, Al
though both did ragged work at times.
On straight football and the forxxard
pass, the High School team excelled,
but Little, of the Teachers, kept the
ball out of Teachers College territory
by his .superior kicking.
The ''Preps'" touchdoxvn came in the
early part of the first half. Dysart's
punt was blocked and the ball captured
by the Teachers. IJy a series of line
plunges, Brooks xxas sent o-er for the
only touchdoxvn of the game. Little
failed to kick goal. The High School
then took a brace and xvent the length
of the field to the five-yard line, where
they lost the ball on a fumble. The
ball seesaxved back and forth until Dy-
art, recox'ering a "Prep" fumble, ran
seventy yards doxvn the field, xx-hen he
xxas oxertaken by Little just as time
In the second half the High School,
after coming within striking distance
of the "Prep" goal, several times lost
the ball either on downs or fumbles.
Later the game became a kicking duel,
in which Little had the adx-antage. The
game ended with a spectacular forty
yard run by Devinne.

leader and their singing must haxe
helped their team. The xxhole croxxd
kept up a continuous uproar when Mis
souri had the ball and resorted to con
certed yelling only xvhen Drake carried
the ball or betxveen halves.
Again they worked the ball doxvn
to the fifteen-yard line and Bluck's ef
fort at field goal xxas blocked and re
covered by a Goslin named Welding.
For the third time the ball xvas placed
on the Drake fifteen-yard line by a
pretty forxvard pass, only to be fumbled
xvhen a score seemed imminent.
Thus it xvas also in the second half.
The ball was kept in Drake territory
most of the time. Once, by txxo for
xvard passes and line smashes, together
xxith a Drake penalty of fifteen yards
for holding, Missouri had the pigskin
on the Drake nine-yard line. Bluck
dropped back to boot it oxer from the
txxenty-txvo-yard line. It xvent over all
right but oxer the Stadium sideline
fence, instead of the bars.
Soon after this the Tigers marched
steadily from midfield to the Drake ten
yard line as if nothing could stop them.
Two plunges netted five yards, and the
third attempt at a drop kick by Graves
McCoy, the Drake captain and right
half, is a xxhole team in himself. He
is their punter and received all the
Missouri punt, seldom failing to make
a good return. He usually nabbed the
runner after everyone else had failed,
and could generally be counted on for
a gain when others were throxxn back.
