COACH OF W. 11.
Cayou's Talk On College
Spirit Wins Students of
When Coach Frank Cavou of the
Washington University football team
closed his speech before the mass meet
in; of University of Missouri students
in the auditorium last night, there ia
prolonged and hearty applause and nine
lusty 'rahs for the speaker, all of which
signified the passing of the spirit of
distrust and bickiring in western inter
collegiate athletics and the substitution
therefor of a clean, sportsmanlike riv
alry. Coach Cayou complimented the Mis
sourians on their spirit and their loy
alty to the football team. Incidentally,
he gave a little lecture on college spirit,
quietly and without any attempt at
oratorical elTect, that completely won
The Right College Spirit.
"Men have the right sort of college
spirit," he said in conclusion, "when
they forget personalities and go out on
the gridiron to fight for their college.
Whether my team wins or loses, that's
the sort of fighting spirit that I like
to see on the football field."
Coach Cayou mildly accused some of
the previous speakers of indulging in
a little '"hot air' ancnt the football
game, ire said it was his first expe
rience in the "show-mc" state and he
hoped the Missouri team wouldn't "show
him too awful much."
The auditorium was packed and
many were standing when the meeting
was called to order by Raymond Lee,
chairman. Prof. L. M. Defoe in as brief
address formally presented 1o the Tigers
the blankets purchased for them by
the students of the Engineering De
partment. He referred to tlie engineers
as the students who do things. De
partment rivalry was forgotten in the
Jfytpphuie that followed his speech.
-" Captain Miller Talks.
Captain E. L. Miller of the football
team accepted the blankets for !the
Tigeis. thanking the Engineers for the
gift. Coach Monilaw spoke on behalf
of the athletic department and com
iil'm..ntlwl li T?nnneers for "backing
up"the team. He praised the fighting
spirit shown by the team at Des Moines
and predicted victory over Washington.
His only fear, he said, was that some
of the men might '-e injured and thus
kept out of the game with Kansas. Nine
'rah were given for the coach, 0. D.
ChrNman leading the yelling.
"Arkansas" Hunt made a character
istic speech expressing the loyalty of
, the student body for the team. H- K-
("General") Smith, a graduate of the
-igineering Department, now of St.
LouN, aid 1'e wouldn't dare go back
to St. Louis if the Tigers lost. "Ozark"
WILD WHEN NEE

Overwhelming Victory Set
the Staid Professors in
Frenzy of Joy.
At 2:35 p. m., Washington marched
slowly from the "gym" to the field.
The men were clad in blankets which
looked as if they might have been
taken from the Athens Hotel.
A few minutes later, The Tigers,
clad in the glorious old gold and
black blankets, presented to them last
night at the mass meeting, trotted
briskly from the "gym" to the field.
They were greeted with "twenty-seven
The sun, as if it had been awaiting
their arrival on the field, burst forth
from behind the clouds and greeted
them with a flood of light
After exactly six minutes of play,
the ball was pushed to the one-foot
line. Constant fumbles on the part
of the Tigers kept the hopes of the
crowd going in ups-and-downs like
the needle on a penny-weighing ma
chine. In five minutes more, the ball
went over for a touchdown and the
crowd went mad with joy.
The game was the prettiest exhibi
tion of open football ever seen on
Rollins field. It resembled a track
meet more than a football game.
When Wilder, feeling cold, sprinted
across Washington's goal for a touch
down, it was more than the crowd
could stand, and it lost what sense
it had left. Staid old "profs" waved
their canes frantically and gave their
vocal organs an unexpected shock.
The sun, in celebration of the victory,
shone at its brightest.
The air was just cool enough to put
spice into the Tigers' playing. Mis

and ran away from the "Pikeway
SNOW SWEPT FROM FIELD I
A squad of negroes was set to work
early this morning by Coach Monilaw to
sweep an inch-thick blanket of snow
from the gridiron on Rollins Field.
' Armed with Jiroonis, ;the men set
systematically to work, and soon the
chalked yard-lines began to appear.
The od is frozen, and as the sun was
eiled during the morning it was not
materially softened. The twenty-two
men who trotted onto the field this af
ternoon stamped on it with grimaces
of disgust, realizing that a fall on it
meant a hard fall.
Washington "rooters" had a big flag
with their University colors, myrtle
and maroon, in the south bleachers.
The day was ideal for football. Just
before time was called the sun broke
through the clouds and warmed the
shivering crowd. The field was hard
and fast, all the snow having been
