It was at a football game yesterday
between negro teams the Columbia
Stars and the elevent of the Lincoln
Institute of Jefferson City . Th$ game
was plajed at the Fair Grounds and
the score was 20 to 6 in favor of the
Both teams did some remarkable
playing and if they ailed to adhere
strictly to the accepted rules and reg

Plenty ef Officials
O.Ticials there were In abundance.
If the head linesman disagreed with
the decision of the referee, he ran
out on the field to tell him so and a
general debate would follow. Or, if
a player thought the line was
stretched half-an-inch to much one
way or another, he called time out
until he had the matter adjusted or
at least argued.
A long Tun was a joy for all and
enthusiasm ran high regardless of
who did the running. The rooters
from the institute were well armed
When the teams lined up for the
kick-off it was apparent that the Col
umbians presented the greatest. va
riety in costumes. The full back had
a Missouri arm band sewed on his
gray jersey. His socks were scarlet
and white. Another player wore a
black sweater adorned with a large
skull and cross bones of old gold felt.
Pads there were enough for two or
dinary teams. Large nose guards and
shin pads were also worn.
Forward Pass Works
The Jefferson City team worked
several forward passes , and trick
plays. Their little quarterback ran
his team with coolness and accuracy.
Toward the end of the game, when
Columbia had given up hope, a vo
ciferous enthusiast yelled: "Kill that
quarterback and I'll give you a dime.
Kill him, boy, and that ten cents am
yours." However, the little quarter
continued to live.
The fight came in the end of the (
third quarter. The war clouds had
been hancinc; low for some time. But
a touchdown made by an Institute
player after the Columbians contend

too much to be overlooked. The run

be much larger, as the big corn crop
will be gathered by that time. This
year for the first time the Frisco and

Miller, the student, left Athens to go
on foot through the northern part of

On the third day of his journey he
fell in with two Albanians. As lie
