Earn a Victory.
"Great game! The kind you
are lucky to get to see. Hard
on the coach's heart, though.
Some of those runs and plays
were good to see. Oklahoma
had a bunch of tricky players.
The Timers have found them
selves. They are going to
play ball from now on."
Coach Schulto's comment on
the game yesterday.
In a game spectacular to the ex
treme, with brilliant playing by both
teams, the Tigers won from Oklahoma
yesterday. The score was 20 to 17.
Ask anyone who saw the game,
they'll tell you the same. For smash
ing football, daring open plays, plung
ing line smashes and spectacular
forward passes and end runs, the con
test will have few equals this season.
It was an even fight. The Tigers
probably "out-tricked" their rivals.
nd victory came to them.
In passing let it be said Oklahoma
has a great team. Weaker than the
Tigers in the line, the Sooners' back
fifld gave an exhibition of ground
gaining that more than once brought
the spectators to their feet in amaze
ment and admiration. It was any
body's game until the whistle blew.
Each team was strong on the offensive
and few were the times either was held
A trick play that brought a score
against Illinois, made six points for
the Tigers against the Sooners. It
was a fake that the Olahomans
couldn't solve and Kemper "went
over" Shepard and Wilson won
praise for their work from the grand
stand but every Tiger in the game
was awarded the same tribute. When
the team was through with Oklahoma
it had won a victory.
The Tigers made good in the third
quarter when they held the plunging
Sooners on their 5 yard line. A few
minutes the Oklahomans turned the
same trick. Thus was the equal
strength of the two teams demonstrat
ed. Heeds, full back for the Sooners, and
Ambrister. quarter, were not allowed
to play. They were protested as in
eligible under the Missouri Valley
Conference rules. They were replac
ed bv Johnson, quarter, and Geyer, full
back. Heeds and Ambrister, Missouri
contended, had played four years on
tho Oklahoma team.
'Hirers First to Score.
Missouri took the lead in the be
ginning of the game. After receiving
the ball from the kickoff, the Tigers
advanced the ball steadily through
the Sooner's line. On npractically every
flown the Tigers made a gain. Okla
homa did not have possession of the
hall a single time before the first
touchdown was made. Moore went
Vo'er for tho first touchdown after
pight minutes of play. The Sooners
from the kickoff advanced the ball
on downs for forty yards when their
forward pass tailed. With the ball on
the Tigers 40 yard line Courtright of
the Sooners made Oklahoma's first
score by a field goal. The ball was
exchanged twice from the next kick
off. Oklahoma received the ball the
second time in mid-field on a 35 yard
Punt from Shepard.
Courtright on an end run left the
ball on the 15 yard line and Capshaw
on a end run made the first touchdown
for Oklahoma. Courtright added the
Koal for Oklahoma. With the Sooners
in the lead with the score 10 to 6 the
Tiger rooters began to get "on edge."
But in the next quarter after a series
of plays and exchanging the ball the
Tigers got the ball on Oklahoma's 25
yard line where Missouri failed to gain
on three downs.
Here Collins sent

'o Score in Third Quarter.
In the third quarter both sides fail
ed to score. In the last quarter the
Tigers increased their lead by another
touchdown and another goal. The
Sooners on the next kickeff started

downs the Sooners advanced the ball
to the 12 yard line from where Lowery
on a pass from Geyer made the second
touchdown for the Sooners.
Here is the lineup that started the
Igame for Missouri: Herndon, right

right guard; Wilson, center; Zimmer
man, left guard: Kemper, left tackle.
Woody, left end; McWilliams, quarter;
Moore, right half; Shepard, left half;

time in the last part of the game.
Collins alternated for McWilliams,
Wicoff for Woody, Lake for Moore.

guard; Spears, center; Meacham, left
guard:, Clark, left tackle; Lowry
left end; Johnson, quarter; Capshaw,
right half: Courtright, left half; Geyer,
The only man changed in the Okla
homa line up was when Hott was sent
in for Bell.
Neither team was penalized in the
first half but in the second half they
were penalized twice each.
Tiger Line Held.
The Tigers went through the Soon
ers line easily in the first part of the
game but the Sooners line braced up
and held the Tigers better after the
first quarter. Oklahoma was not able
to gain consistently through the
Tiger line. The end runs by the
Sooners were helped by good inter
ference, but the interference on other
plays by both teams was not consider
ed good. The ends of both teams show
ed poor ability at tackling.
A crowd of about 4.000 was on the
bleachers. Coolidge of Kansas watched
the game from the bleachers.
Shepard, McWilliams and Kemper
starred for the Tigers. Shepard was
a consistent ground gainer throughout
the game. Capshaw, Courtright and
Geyer were the best performers for
the Sooners. ,

For more than an hour the board

based on the conclusion that the of

involved moral turpitude.
If the decision of the appeal board
is upheld, she will apeal to the

Soon after the decision was an
