This information has been sent to
the University Missourian by B. H.
Bonfoey of the Board of Curators,

The attorneys for the State, Mr.
Miller said, asserted that if all passes
were abolished and everybody charged
the same rate the railroads could
make a profit at two cents a mile,
and therefore the Wabash had decided
that "in order to avoid any criticism,
during the litigation, the two-cent
rate would be adhered to strictly.
"Under the circumstances," said
Mr. Miller, "you will see that our
hands are tied unless the railroads
should again be put in a position to

Mr. Miller promised to advise Mr.
Bonfoey if anything further could be
done toward making a special rate.

rests in part on the excellent care he

The footballist's ankle is oftener in

Tl ese bandages do not interfere with
the footballist's speed. In track work
they would be a serious detriment, but
in the slower gridiron play this is not

While Missouri trounced Washington
Saturday afternoon, the Kansas Jay
hawkers at Lincoln shattered the hopes
of the Xebraska Cornhuskers for the
Missouri Valley championship, winning
from "King" Cole's men by the decisie
siore of 20 to 5.
The result was the biggest surprise
of Saturday's gridiron results in the
West. The Xebraskans went into the
game overconfident; Xebraska "rooters"
could see nothing but victory for the
team, in live minutes, however, ac
cording to press dispatches, the Kansans
had proved themselves the sturdier,
Scored on Place Kick.
Kansas' first score was on a place
kick by Dahlene from the twenty-five
yard line. Five minutes later Xebraska
muffled a punt and Dahlene raced across
the line for a touchdown. The Xebras
kans showed a flash of the form ex
pected of them when they got the kill
in midfield and fought their way to the
goal line for their only score.
The Jayhawkers scored a'.iin in the
first half after a 70-yard return of a
punt by Johnson, quarterback, and added
four more points in the second session
on a field goal by Johnson from the
"King" Cole's vaunted "peck-a-bo"
formation proved no more effective than
