TIGER'S TAIL 10-4
Missouri's Failure on Trick
Plays Chief Cause of
PUNY" BLUCK IN FINE FORM
His Field Goal the First
Score Against Enemy
Missouri's inability to execute trick
plays, and Kansas' expertness with the
(inside kick, lost the annual Thanks
giving game at Kansas City, 10 to 4,
and gave Kansas the undisputed cham
pionship of the Missouri Valley.
The Tigers have nothing to be
ashamed of in this result. They scored
against the old enemy for the first time
The total receipts for the game were
S18.237.50. Of this amount $3,191 goes
to George Tebeau, for the use of the
park, and the balance, $15,040, is to be
divided between the two universities
after the expenses of both teams arc
paid. This amount is larger than that
of any previous year, the next largest
leing $9,000, in 1005. The receipts for
lust year were 8,000.
The "rooting" was louder than that
at any previous game, and Missouri
had a trille the better of the Jay
hawkers. Both Universities had bands,
but they could seldom be heard owing
to the noise made by the rooters. Not
until the whistle sounded did the Tiger
supporters quit yelling for the Old Gold
"Rooting" at Station.
Hardly a person who saw the game
could speak above a whisper after it,
but the "rooters" suddenly regained
their voices at 8 p. m. Thursday, when
the rivals came together at Union Sta
tion on their way home. Special trains
left for Lawrence and Columbia at the
" same time, and when the students met
aK..the station, an hour before the
trains started, the rooting began again.
Even th. megaphone man, who an
nounces the "ins, was unable to make
himelf heard and had to quit work
until the students left. The crowd was
so great that the ticket offices closed,
as no one could get through the crowd
to the window. All of the regular pas
sengers who left the station liefore the
students, had to go out on the street
and go through the baggage room to the
platform in order to get to their trains.
Where Reed Failed.
'Tubby" Reed, the giant Kansas
guard who plays football with his
mouth, and who accused Bluck of "yel
lowness," was played off his feet by
Roberts, who substituted Anderson in
the second half of the game. Roberts
weighed forty-five pounds less than the
big Jayhawker, but he made Reed look
While none of the Tigers sought in
dividual glory, if anyone were singled
out as playing the star game, it woula
be Alexander. His line-bucking was a
revelation to Kansas. Time and again
he went through their line for big gains
and the Jayhawkers seemed unable to
"Deatherage's Good Work.
Deathcrage did great work in run
ning back punts. Many times the little
quarter was kept from returning the
ball on account of Xee's inability to
keep -Pleasant from getting down the
field on punts. The fumble made by
Dcatherage was due to the fact that
he was tackled on his sore hip.
Driver gained more ground on his
end runs than all the rest of the team
together gained on trick plays. The
little end played like a cyclone.
Kennedy coached his men by proxy
during the game. The waterboy for
the Kansas team was one of the Kan
sas football players. He was in con
sultation with Kennedy during the
game and when one of the men was
"lajed out" he went out on the field
w ith the water and orders from Ken
nedy. Dr. Russell Hill, of Kansas City,
who played end on the Yale team of
1S05, when asked what he thought of
the Kansas-Missouri game said: "1
think that if the Tigers had had the
right kind of interference they would
have beaten the Kansas team. The de
feat was due to inability to form in
terference and to break up the Kansas
interference. Individually the TegSrs
have a much better team than the Kan
sans, but the lack of team work wa
noticeable to everyone present, and did
a great deal towards losing the. game."

HOW NEWS CAME
TO "ROOTERS" HERE
University Missourian Had
STUDENTS CHEERED FOR TIGERS
Western Union's Equipment
Unequal to Demands
The promptitude with which the
University Missourian gave the
progress and result of the Thanks
giving football game to the "stay-at-home
rooters" in the auditorium
was due to the efficient service of
the Bell Telephone Co. in conjunc
tion with the Columbia Telephone
When the Western Union Tele
graph Co., acting apparently on the
supposition that it had a monopoly
on all long-distance "business" into
Columbia, refused to string a loop
to the gridiron in Kansas City, Col.
J. A. Hudson of the Columbia Tele
phone Co. took the matter up with
the Bell officials in Kansas City,
and arrangements were perfected
whereby the game, play by play,
was told to the waiting enthusiasts
While the Tigers were being van
quished at Kansas City, loyal "rooters"
in the auditorium of the University of
Missouri gave them long-distance en
couragement. The progress of the
game was announced, play by play, by
the University Missourian, and the
students gave "nine 'rahs for 'Tubby'"
and the "long P for Bluck, just as
though they were witnessing the game.
Within one minute after the whistle
blew, the students here were told of
the fact. A long distance telephone
communication between the Missourian
and staff men on the gridiron was
maintained continuously during the
The service was therefore quicker
and more satisfactory than any other
method of communication could have
Efficient Telephone Service.
The Bell Telephone Company ran a
line to the gridiron at Kansas City,
and built a telephone booth on the
field for use of the Missourian corre
spondents. They stationed a "trouble"
man to see that the wires were in good
condition, and instructed their opera
tors along the line between Kansas
City and Columbia to be in watch for
the messages and to see that nothing
The Western Union telegraph service
was first contemplated for this pur
pose. The company had installed a
loop in the news room of the Mis
sourian, in accordance with a previous
arrangement, but would not run a line
to the gridiron at Kansas City.
A messenger service from the grid
iron to the nearest telegraph office,
would thus have been necesary, so this
service was abandoned.
How News Was Handled.
In Columbia, permanent telephone
connection was made by long distance
wires to the alumni rooms in Academic
Hall. The University Missourian paid
the expenses of three staff correspond
ents to report the game. While one
telephoned the game in detail, the oth
ers took notes of the game from the
bleachers to be telephoned. Others in
Columbia received the game by tele
phone, equipped with an operator's re
ceiver. The bulletins were then read
to a fair-sized audience in the audito

Any girl with determination, no
matter how limited the funds at her
command, may acquire an education at
the University of Missouri. That this
is true is shown by the experiences
of young women here, who are "work
ing their way through" as milliners,
stenographers, house girls, student as
sistants and library employees.
The variety of ways in which money
is earned by resourceful, energetic
girls increases the opportunities for
others who fear that lack of special
training would prevent them from
making their wav.
Miss Horr's Success.
More than twenty girls are paying
all or part of their expenses at the
University of Missouri this year. The
most common way of doing this is by
stenographic work, because there is
such demand for this work here.
Miss Lucile Horr, who has earned
money for part of her expenses in this
way, says the advantages of stenog
raphy in aiding a girl to obtain a Uni
versity education are numerous.
"I find it very easy to carry on sten
ographic work with my studies," she
says. "It is not of such a character
as to take my mind from my studies
and I can keep a book with me and
pick it up at any moment when I am
not busy at my machine, so no time
Miss Horr did this work at the first
of the year, but is now assisting in
the laboratory work in the dairy of the
College of Agriculture.
Miss Horr has large blue eyes and a
frank, bright countenance. She is a
Freshman in the department of Arts
and Science,. She came here from Se
attle. Wash., that she might later take
a course in the Department of Medi
cine of the University, as she intends
to become a physician.

Miss Pearl Farrell, who also does
stenographic work, says that to be
able to pay one's expenses in college
depends on proper management.
"I am now earning more than
enough to pay my expenses and am
carrying fourteen hours' work in
school," Miss Farrell says. . "I can easi
ly do this by having regular hours for

my work and wasting no time. I get
up at 4 o'clock every morning and use
the early morning hours for study. 1
never work Sundays, but take the

"I breakfast at seven, go to the Uni
versity at eight and am busy all day
in the class-rooms, the library, and at
my typewriter. In the evenings I en
tertain my friends or study but never
sit up late even if I must leave some
work. It doesn't pay in the end."
Miss Farrell has a singularly attrac
tive face, which wins friends for her
everywhere. Her home is in Kanas
City, where she had earned money to
pay her expenses in Central High
School, from which she was graduated
before coming here. She says her ex
perience there has been of invaluable
aid to her in obtaining work since she
came to Columbia.
One's a Milliner.
Miss Sophia Hersch, of New York, is
paying her expenses as a milliner.
She is a Sophomore in the depart
ment of Arts and' Science. The suc
cess she has met with in her work has
made her a self-reliant girl and she no
longer fears having to leave the Uni
versity liefore she finishes the course.
Many girls of the University express
their appreciation of her work, and say
she not only helps herself but them.
Her work has been so satisfactory that
she now has all she can do in this line
among the women of the University
and residents of Columbia.
Miss Anna Swainson, a senior, help3
defray her expenses by work as a
manicure. Her work is among the
women of the University only.
Misses Social Pleasure.
One girl who expects to take an A.
B. degree next summer from the Col
lege of Arts and Science says, that she
has earned enough by doing housework
to pay all expenses during the three
years she has leen here, except 73.
This includes her fare home and hack
each year, which is aliout $10.
"The greatest disadvantage of this
work," she says, "is that a girl misses
all the social life that means so much
to her while in school and is such a
dear memory afterwards. It takes grit
to stick to this and sometimes I have
wondered if it were worth while after
IWSS PEARL FARRELL
Girls doing stenographic work
earn from $20 to $25 per month.
Girls working in the library earn
from $15 to $20 per month and some
student assistants earn as high as
$25. Girls working their way
"through the University of Missouri
carry as much school work, in most
cases, as other students and make
as good class records. Their usual

of her expenses is open to the student,
who becomes especially proficient in
Miss Xellc Xesbitt and Miss Edith
Hartley arc this year assistants in the
department of Home Economics. Miss
Lucile Keenc is assistant in botany.
This has the advantage over other
kinds of work by being a direct aid
to the student in her studies, as well
as a financial aid.
Three young women students are
paying part of their expenses by work
ing in the library. Miss Inez Spicer,
who is a Senior, and Miss Alma Tur
ner, a Sophomore, say they enjoy this
work and find it interferes very little
with either their school work or social
pleasure. They believe this to be the
easiest way for a girl to work her way
through .the University.
Miss Edna D. Day of the Home Eco
nomics Department says there should
le an employment bureau in the Uni
versity of Missouri to which girls can
apply for situations, and where they
could get information concerning work
of various kinds which students can do
