COACH IS ANXIOUS
Says Bulldogs Will Be Lucky
to Hold Missouri to
Des Moines, la., Nov. 5. With
Drake's third conference game with
Missouri but four days off the Bull
dog prospects are gloomier than they
have been this season. The Blue and
White will line up Saturday with"
three of the best stars on the side
lines. Welsh, the best end who has ever
played for Drake, tore the ligaments
in his back so badly in the Simpson
game a week ago that he is not even
out in a suit. Simons, the All-Missouri
Valley half, had his injured leg
wrenched so badly at the Washington
game Saturday that it was necessary
to carry him off the field and he is
hardly able to walk to his classes.
McHenry, who is playing his first
year for the White and Blue, is still
limping about with a bad ankle re
ceived in the Simpson game and will
not start against the Tigers. The
rest of the squad are in bad shape.
McCormick is in poor condition, due
to the battering received in the last
two games, and is not playing up to
his usual standard.
The men have suffered a severe
slump following the Washington
game, and practice the last two
nights has been listless. Coach Grif
fith is worried about the prospects,
and says that unless the team shows
a decided improvement in the next
few days. Drake will be lucky to
hold the Missourians to a small score.
Drake has already won two confer
ence games, defeating Kansas 6 to 0
and Washington 33 to 13.
If the Bulldogs are lucky enough
to get away with the Missouri game
the Missouri Valley championship
will be contested for here on Novem
