Missouri Takes Lead Early
in First Quarter and Is
Never Stopped.
SEVERAL ARE HURT
Coach Cayou Attributes Loss
of Game to Lack of
Substitutes.
WHAT THE COACHES SAID.
Coach Cayou of Washington : "The
Washington team failed to hit its
stride until the second half. It re
quired constant shifting to keep the
line strengthened. This was made
necessary by the many injuries re
ceived by our men, forcing them to
quit the game, and necessitating the
use of substitutes. The boys put up
a hard game against Drake. I ex
pected better for the game against
Missouri and am disappointed."
Prof. C. I. Brewer : " The Tigers
played v. to my expectations. The
interference especially was good."
ANtnnt Coach T. E. D. Hackney :
"Washington surprised me by being
so weak. I had looked for a closer
score."
Missouri had little opposition yes
terday and the Tigers scored their
most decisive victory of the year over
Washington University. The score
was 33 to'O. All the points were
made in the first half. The ease with
which the Tigers rolled up points sur
prised everyone, the coaches included.
Not until the second half, when prac
tically the entire Missouri team was
made up of substitutes did Washing
ton hold. Then they managed to
stave off further scoring largely
through numerous penalties against
the Tigers.
Missouri spirit was shown at its
best. Nearly as much yelling was
done for the Myrtle and Maroon men
as for the Tigers. Nine " rahs " were
given for every Washington man who
was hurt. The 250 Washington root
ers who were present were as mag
nanimous as Missouri and cheered
frequently for the Tigers.
Good Feeling Manifest.
Everyone was good natured. Good
plays by Washington men were ap
plauded as readily as those made by
Missouri. Knobel is credited with
receiving one of the greatest ovations
ever given a Tiger, when the stands
implored the coaches to take him out
on account of an injury. The coaches
were a little slow about taking him
out as his injury was slight, and ev
ery man in the rooters' section stood
up and cheered for " Dobby " until he
was relieved by Dunckle.
The Tigers were penalized more
than 100 yards. The men were off
side frequently. Over eagerness cost
Missouri a touchdown on LeMire's
SO-yard run. Lake gave the runner
splendid interference, but was too
free with his hands and the ball was
called back after LeMire had made
the most sensational run of the day
Although the Tigers have been
practicing constantly on the forward
pass for two weeks, they were unable
to get away with a single successful
one yesterday. They tried eight
times. Washington was but little
more successful. They made one out
or nine trials.
Visitors Good Tncklers.
Washington, In the first half, exhib
ited the prettiest tackling seen here
this year. They hit the runners low
and brought them down with a
crash. Later in the game, however,
they lost their ginger.
Most of Missouri's scoring was due
to the delayed pass. It had Wash
ington fooled all the time. Holes
two yards wide were left In the
Washington line by this play in the
first half and Missouri runners took
advantage of them.
Washington's much renowned scor
ing machine failed to show itself.
Their shift play was an ineffective

formation. Speed, which is the es
sential thing in a shift play, was not
evident. Only two or three times did
Washington push down into Mis
souri's territory by straight football.
They never were inside of the 20-
yard line.
Then the Sabs West la.
Prof. C. L. Brewer played safe when
he saw that the game was won and
took out the men most liable to get
injured. Turley and Herndon were
given a trial at the ends in place of
Pixlee and Mills. Dunckle, who re
lieved Sheppard at full, showed well,
but had to be taken out on account of
a bruised shoulder. Hupp, who was
not even acquainted with the signals,
took Dunckle's place.
The splendid work of the backfield
was made possible by the great in
terference they received. Mr. Brew
er was well pleased with the work
in this respect, as heretofore It has
been the team's weak point..

on the home grounds. He and Bar
ton took care, of everything that
came their way. Knobel, playing his
last game for Missouri on Rollins
Field, showed best in the backfield.
Miiford and Moreell for Washington
were the men who did the pretty
tackling.
Missouri's kicking staff did not
show any improvement over its form
er work. Mills missed two easy
goals from touchdown in the first
iiaif and McWiliiar.is and Lake both
fui ed in their attempts to drop kick.
Only once did :.iiss-nt,ri have to punt.
The First Half.
Washington won the toss and
chose to defend the west goal. Knobel
kicked off for the Timers. The Wash
ington runner was deuced on the
."-yatd line. Tr.u Pikers learned at
the outset the difficulty cf piercing
the Tigers' line. They railed to make
ilieir distance and were forced to
kick, the ball going nit of boinds on
the 45-yard line.
A Tiger fumble nrs recoiered by
Wilson. The Tigers rushed the Pik
ers down the field. Knobel and Le
Mire making big gains on end runs
and through t"'o line. Captain Le
Mire went over for a touchdown from
the 5-yard line, making Missouri's
first score within the first five min
utes of play. Mills fa! ed to kick
goal.
Knobel Carries It Over.
Knobel kicked off again. LeMire
cpught a forward pass attempted by
Washington and went 'or a 10-yard

"icers near the goal line. Knobel
went through fo'- a toachiiown. Mills
failed to kick goal. Score 12 to 0.
Knobel kicked off again. Moreell.
Washington's fullback, returned the
ball 10 yards frou: the 25-yard line.

Sheppard kicked gorl and Missouri's
score was 19.
Nelson kicked off for Washington,
LeMire returning for 35 yards. The
first quarter ended with Missouri In
possession of ball on 40-yard line.
Another Procession.
In the second quarter the Tigers
again forced Cayou's men down the
field. Several times, distance was
made in one and two downs. With
the ball on the 5-yard line a fumble
was recovered over the line for a
touchdown by Mills. Sheppard kick
ed goal, score 26 to 0.
Delayed passes and fake plays
made more gains for Missouri. Lake
went In for McWilliams at quarter
The bleachers were frightened by a
30-yard run by Moreell for Washing

end. Lake went over for a touch
down. Sheppard kicked goal. Score
33 to 0.
The half ended with Turley and
Herndon In the game at ends In placj
of Pixlee and Mills. No more scor
ing. The Second Half.
The Pikers came back strong in the
second half and there was no more
s-.oring. There were more penalUes
in the last two quarters, however,
which the coaches say was due to the
number of substitutes used. Two
Tigers crossed the goal line, but no
score was counted on account of pen
alties made in the play.
LeMire made an 85-yard run only
to be brought back and Wiggans also
crossed the goal line and was called
back for the same reason.
Nelson, tackle for Washington, was
kicked in the head and made uncon
scious in this half and Hardaway suf
fered a torn ligament in his shoulder.
Dunckle sprained his shoulder.
Many substitutes were used by
both teams. Duvall went in for
Knobel and Gallaher -for Wilson. The
ball was in Washington territory
throughout the half. The Tigers'
gains were offset by heavy penalties.

DUXCKLE HURT FOURTH TIME
Suffers Fractured Collar Bone Xel
son in HositaL
For the fourth time, William C.
Dunckle, substitute back on the Tiger
eleven, suffered a fracture of his col
lar bone yesterday. He will not be
seen in a football suit again this year.
Last year while playing on the
freshman team Dunckle was injured
twice in one season in the same waj.
"The collar bone is not broken,"
explained T. E. Jones, trainer of the
Tigers, " but is rather split. It is
what is called a ' green fracture.' "
Nelson, left tackle on the Washing
ton eleven, was kicked on the head
and made unconscious in the game.
He was badly stunned and remained
unconscious for some time, but no
serious results are expected. Ke was
taken to the Parker Memorial Hos
pital, but is expected to be able p go
home today. He was the only one
of the Pikers who did not go home
with the team.
Hardaway, the Washington quar
terback, injured a ligament in hii?
knee and had to be taken out of the
game. He was not seriously hurt
however.
CADETS TO HATE SPONSORS
Each Company Will Choose a Young
Woman as Its Patroness.
The University Cadets have decided
to choose a young woman as sponsor
for each of the eight companies in
the social affairs given during the
year. The method of making a selec
tion has not yet been decided on.
The selection of sponsors will not
do away with the chaperon at dances,
banquets and other entertainments.
The companies are organizing this
year for a broader social activity.
Each company plans a number of
parties during the year. Friday night
Company H gave a dance at the Na
tional Guard Armory. W. L. Howard,
professor of horticulture, and Mrs.
Howard were the chaperons.

AIMS TO KEEP FARM
GIRLS IN THE HOME
New Short Course for Wom
en Teaches Management
of Household.
BEGINS ON JANUARY 6
Cooking, Sewing and Care
of the Sick Among the
Subjects Considered.
And now there is a homemakers'
school for farmer girls. The first
step in broader education for women
was the coeducational university.
Then women were admitted to col
leges of agriculture. The University
of Missouri has gone a step farther
and established a short course of in
strucUon for women who have not
the time or cannot afford to take a
college education.
The course, which is similar to the
short winter course in agriculture fof
men, Is planned to give the farmer
girl the same opportunity in home
economics that her brother has in
agriculture. The announcement is
sued by the University says:
"The home is the most important
4!actor in farm life. The problem of
how to keep the boy on the farm is
exceeded in importance only by one
other and that is: How to keep the
girl In the home. Thinking men
everywhere have agreed that the so
lution of the problem so far as the
boy is concerned lies in training him
to be a skilled farmer, and In show
ing him that there is more to farming
than mere manual labor.
Economy an Aim.
"Surely the girl should be given at
least an equal opportunity to learn of
new ideas in the management of home
affairs. The waste of material things
in the home and, still more important,
the waste of time, strength and en
ergy, is generally the result of not
knowing how to make the best of the
resources at hand. It is for the pur
pose of securing a more economical
administration of household affairs in
these lines that the course is offered."
The course was first offered last
year. It lasts only but seven weeks,
but if enough interest is shown, and
the enrollment will justify it, the
course will be extended to fourteen
weeks. The winter school in agricul
ture was at first twelve weeks long.
Now it lasts fourteen weeks in each
of two years.
The enrollment in the girl's course
last year was seventeen. This com
pares favorably with the first year of
the short course in agriculture, in
which there were but twenty-four.
Last year that enrollment has reached
290. It is not expected that the young
women will take up the work as read
ilv as the men. The men go home
and immediately put their knowledge
into practice. Consequently immedi
ate results are obtained. Neighbors
see what these students have dona
Here is effective advertising which re
sults immediately In increased at
tendance at the winter school.
With women it is different. Some
time will pass before many of them
begin to practice what they have
learned. The advantages of the wo
men's short course will therefore not
be so readily apprecited.
Four Married Women Enrolled.
Of the seventeen women who took
the course last year, four were mar
ried. One of these was the wife of a
professor in the University. Another
was a student's wife. The remaining
students were from different sections
of the state.
The first course was food work, a
study of what to eat, how much to
eat and the scientific preparation of
food. They learned what proportions
and combinations are the most pala
table. In addition they had courses in the
nursing and care of the sick. They
were taught home sanitation and pre
ventive medicine. There were classes
lu sewing, poultry, dairying, and hor
ticulture. Since there is no certifi
cate issued by the University, no ex
aminations are required for entrance,
and there are no regularly prescribed
courses. Women may take any of the
courses in agriculture outlined for
the students in the short course for
men. They may take part or all their
work in home economics or they may
take part or all of it in agriculture.
As broad an election as possible is
given them.
Will Begin January
The course this year will open Jan
uary 6 and last till February 21. In
addition to the courses in food work,
hygiene and sanitation, sewing and
home care of the sick, offered last
year, new courses in home economics
will be given.
An advanced course in cooking, the
planning and preparation of meals,
will consider the scientific -preparation
of meals and the practice of home
cooking. It will also instruct in the
principles underlying proper nutri
tion of the human body and the time
and cost of meals.
Instruction in dressmaking will in
clude the fundamental principles nec
essary for the home dressmaker.
Millinery and laundry work will be
given also. In addition to these,
classes in agriculture will be organ
ized or the women may take any of
the courses offered In the second ses
sion of the men's short course, which
begins at the same time.
SUIT SETTLES ROAD DISPUTE
County Court Wins Case Involving
Special District Fund of $10,000.
Through a decision of the Supreme
Court of Missouri in' the case-of the
Columbia Special Road - District
against Boone County in .favor of the
county, the special district will have
about $10,000 less to spend. The dis
trict is an eight-mile square. Colum
bia being the center. The fund In
volved in the case will remain in the
hands of the county court
By a state law a. tax of 25 cents on
each $100 assessed valuation can be
levied by special districts for road
building purposes. The fund raised
by this tax goes into the hands of
the county court.
Some time ago the Columbia Spe
cial Road District asked the Boone
County Court to turn over to it 20
out of the 25 cents collected in this
way. The court offered to turn over
more than half that much. The spe
cial district filed a writ of mandamus
for about $10,000 of the fund.
The county court is required bylaw
to build all bridges in the county that
cost more than $100. The cost of
such bridges will now be paid out of
the fund raised from the special road
tax. Had the case been decided in
favor of the special district, the court
would have had the cost of such
bridges to pay out of the general road
fund and the special road district
would have had a larger fund which

The Columbia case was decided with
a case of exactly the same kind from
Cameron, Mo.
ABOUT THE SPECIAL TRAIX
Professor Brewer Announces Wabash
Excursion Schedule.
Owing to a misapprehension that
has arisen regarding the special train
to Lawrence, Prof. C. L. Brewer gave
out the following statement:
The special train, carrying day
coaches, tourist and standard sleep
ers, will leave Columbia at 10 o'clock
Friday night. It will reach Kansas
City early the next morning, probably
about 7 o'clock. From Kansas City a
special train of twelve day coaches
will leave for Lawrence over the
Santa Fe at 11 o'clock. This train
will carry the Missouri students,
alumni and friends. The special will
return to Kansas City immediately
after the game and will leave Kansas
City for Columbia at 11:45 o'clock
that night.
The special-rate tickets are good
going to Lawrence only on the spe
cial train, but are good on any train
returning from Kansas City to Col
umbia up to the last Wabash train
Sunday night, the 11:30 o'clock train.
This train will carry through sleepers
to Columbia, arriving here at 8
o'clock Monday morning.

THANKSGIVING DINNER
CHEAPERJIS YEAR
Prices on Most of Necessary
Eatables Have Gone
Down Considerably.
PUMPKINS TAKE DROP
Will Only Cost One-Fourth
Last Year's Price Cider
Less Than Half.
Indications now are that the
Thanksgiving dinner will be consid
erably cheaper this year than usual.
Nearly every dish on the table will
cost less if the size of the dish is not
increased. Turkey has come down
from 30 to 25 cents a pound and
cranberries have dropped from 60 to
40 cents a gallon since last Thanks
giving day. Three bunches of celery
sell for a quarter this year; last year
the same price bought only two.
Pumpkins are four times as cheap.
Last year pumpkins cost 2 cents a
pound; this year they sell for one
half cent a pound. Apples that cost
from 30 to 60 cents a bushel this year
brought a dollar last year. Sweet
potatoes have dropped from 40 to 20
cents a bushel and Irish potatoes
from a dollar to 60 cents a bushel
since last year.
Oysters are the same price from
25 to 30 cents a pint. Ducks are 20
cents a pound, the same as last year,
but geese have dropped from 22 to 15
cents since 1911.
Most of the other "trimmings" for
a good Thanksgiving dinner are about
the same price as last year except
cider. The Thanksgiving Epicureans
who like good cider with their turkey
will not be deprived of it by prohibi
tive prices again this year. Cider that
cost 60 cents a gallon last year can
be purchased for a quarter now.
A good cigar still goes with the din
ner for a dime.

more than 10 per cent of the hogs in
Missouri are affected.
The State Board of Agriculture has
issued a bulletin to the farmers of
Missouri, asking them to burn or bury
the carcasses of all diseased hogs and
thereby help to prevent the spread of
the disease. The state law on the
subject Is printed on the circular, so
that all farmers may know whether
they are violating the law or not.
