The Tigers had their last practice
Lut one on Rollins Field last night.
The field was so muddy and slippery
that it was nearly impossible to get a
good line on the work the men were
doing. Coach Monilaw did not put the
men in any real scrimmage, fearing
some might be injured.
The only scrimmage was when the
Tigers and the all-class team lined up
and practiced on the kick-off. '"Puny"

The field was so slippery that if a

Whenever you find a group of old
Missouri "grads" conning over football
games of other years you will not lin
ger long without hearing something of
the season of '95, says the Kansas City
Star. That was the year when the
glory of the Tiger flourished at its
zenith, and the Columbia eleven won
more Eastern recognition than any
Western football aggregation except
One cannot talk football for long with
Missourian of '95 without being com
pelled to listen to a tale of the mighty
prowess of the famous "Pop" Bliss
eleven. The old "grad" likes to tell of
the great play of "old Ad Hill;" of
the terrific line plunges of Shawhan,
Young and Allee, and of how the mam
moth Brigham overhauled the fleet Out
land on the Tiger twenty-yard line after
a .sprint of eighty-five yards.
Those were great days for Missouri.
C. D. Bliss, the white-haired Yale back,
whose run for a touchdown beat Har
vard in '92, coached the Tigers, and
the team he turned out is sweet memory
for Missourians. Only one game did the
Tigers lose that year. That was a 12
to 10 game captured by Nebraska on a
Record of the 1905 Team.
The "Pop" Bliss Tigers came here for
their annual clash with Kansas on
Thursday, Nov. 23, at Exposition park,
and on their belts were the scalps of
Depauw, 0 to 22; Purdue, C to 16;
Northwestern, 18 to 20; Vanderbilt, 0
to 18. Kansas, too, had a great team
that year and came here for the Mis
souri game with the following victo
ries: Midland, 0 to 50; Iowa, 0 to 52;
Doane, G to 32; Nebraska, 4 to 8.
In the four annual Kansas-Missouri
games preceding tiiis year the Kansans
had scoreil 50 points, the Missourians
30. The Tigers won this year by a. 10
to 0 score.
Here are the two teams as they

10,000 Witnessed the Struggle.
A crowd of 10,000 persons witnessed
the battle. It was the largest crowd
in the history of the game. The ground
was very muddy, which made fancy
runs almost out of the question. Kan
sas was the first to score, and the touch
down was the indirect result of an 85
yard run by Johnny Outland, who after
wards starred for Pennsylvania. Here
is a paragraph from the story of the
game as printed in the Star:
"Then came a sensation which finally
terminated in the" only touchdown of
the Kansas eleven. Big Outland was
given the ball. Around the Tigers' left
end he went loping after Hester and
Williamson. These two very dirty young
men bunted into every Tiger who was
in danger of accomplishing certain
fiendish designs on Outland. He passed
the line and only Allee was left to head
him off. Into Allee went Williamson
like a cannon ball and down went the
two men in a heap. Outland plowed
through the mud, " throwing up great
clods behind, a clear field, a touch
down, unlimited glory ahead, and in his
ears the cheers of thousands of Jay
hawkers to spur him on.
The 5-yard lines didn't twinkle un
derneath his feet because the mud was
too deep for running of the twinkling
kind. He crossed the center line with
the Tigers in hot pursuit. The mud was
too deep for all save one. He was Brig
ham. This sturdy Missourian was a
great mudhorse. Little by little he
gained on the toiling Outland. At the
35-yard line he was only a few yards
behind, receiving the backwash from
Outland's heels full in the face. Un
daunted he plunged onward and just as
Outland almost gained the 20-yard line
Brisham plunged and the two went slid-
in: into the muck. It was a great run
of Outland's an 85-yard run and a
greater pursuit of Brigham's, the mud-
The Kansans failed to profit at once
by this great advantage and Hester
made a try at field goal. The ball went
wide. However, after seventeen minutes
of fierce play Quarterback Hill of Kan-
as skirted Missouri s left end on a trick
play and hiked to a touchdown. Hes
ter, who was the K. U. kicker, booted
the jroal and Kansas was ahead, 6 to 0.
The Jayhawkers found a vulnerable
spot in Price's end and hammered the
spot unmercifully. "Pop" Bliss ped
aled up and down the side-lines with a
solemn face. His protegees were being
rammed hard. Then the tide turned.
Missouri bucked the oval well into the
Kansas territory and the speedy Shaw
han tucked the ball under his arm on
Allee's fake kick and eluding the Jay
hawker left end sprinted fifteen yards
to Missouri's first score. Price toed the
goal. The score was a tie, G to 0. The
first half ended.
The catapultic line plunges of the
huge Brigham and the broad-shouldered
mil featured the second half. These
Missouri mountains of flesh ripped the
Kansas line to fragments, and finally
the fleet Young shot through a wagon
road opened up by devastator Brigham.
Goal was missed and it was Missouri's
game by the score of 10 to 0. The
light-haired Bliss was all smiles.
