TIGERS LOSE 2 GAMES
Kafisas Aggj c Basketball Teain
Wins Both pontests Here
The Tigers tasted defeat ln basket
ball for the first time this season, at
the hands of the Kansas Aggie, the
new members of the Conference, Mis
souri lost two games. The score of
the first game. Friday night, was 31
to 18; and the second, Saturday af
ternoon, 34 to 27.
Superior basket sbooUng by the
Aggies won both games. In the first
game, particularly, their goal throw
ing was by far the best seen on the
local court this season.
The work of Souders, Aggie center,
was the feature of the two games.
He scored 17 pojnts In the first game,
more than half of the total; and 14
in the second. His goal throwing
was a revelation to Tiger rooters.
No saot'seeaiesT toe dlflcult or alsi.
Palfreyman, Tiger forward aad
guard, outshone all other Missouri
players In the two contests. Some of
his' goals were spectacular aad his
extreme speed aad aggressiveness was
YtTT much la evidence la both games.
He waa knocked put in the aecoad
game, but revived enough to finsh.
Stem at guard played great de
fensive ball. Although he has been
sick for the last week, and had a
higij fever Friday aad Saturday, stlH
pe played his' usual stellar game.
The second game was the closer and
more interesting of he two. The
score, was close at alj times, aad al
though the Aggies kept the lead a
greater part of" the game, the Tigers
always threatened, and the rooters
never gave up. MacCallum, captajn
of the Aggies, was the chief scorer,
having sevea goals to his credit

HIS JUjUY MEASURE
.Believes State Should Have
Jtighf to Gross Examine
Witness Who Testifies.
Frank G. Harris, representative from
Boone County, has introduced a bill
in the General Assembly giving two
pr more school districts power to
unite to maintain a jiigh sctaoqj. The
biil provides that courses in agricul
ture and domestic science shall be
gven. The high schoo board l to
be composed of the presidents of pie
various districts uniting. The stats
treasurer sjiall aid the school by a
gift of flop.
la another bill, Mr. Harris proposes
to five the atate the right to cross
examine anyone charged with a crme,
who youtarily takes the witness
stand' n ijis own defense. Persopa
charged with crime under pie present
law cannot be required to give testi
mony against themselves. If put pn
thp witness stand they cannot be
crossed examined on any matters not
referred to ln their chief examination.
Mr. Harris argues that if a defend
ant 'takes the stand as a witness In
his own behalf the state should have
a right to cross examine him as it
does any other witness.
A third bill of Mr. Harris, if passed,
will reduce the number of men sum
moned for Juries in capital cases from
40 to 24. This gives 12 challenges in
stead of 28, the number now chal
lenged. In felony cases the number
of challenges will be reduced from
18 to 8 and In misdemeanor cases
from 8 to" 6.
Mr. Harris has estimated that' this
will, save the tax-payers $50,000 a
The bill also provides that Jurors
found competent to serve la criminal
cues ftyUi be placed in Jhe care pf
an ofleer of the court until the Jury
lis sworn. At present a Juror is not
put unjler the custody of an officer
until after the defendant makes his
peremptory challenges. He Is not
required to announce these until he
has had the list of 40 men for 24
Harris has Introduced another
bill whkh gives thecpuaty court of
each county the right to fix the ppll
tax paid la that county. No poll tax
is to be more than $5 or less than $1.
