Drake Was Defeated Yester-
da by the Score
of 10 to 0.
BOTH PLAYED POORLY
McWilliams Scored Touch
down by 60-Yard Run;
Made 9 of 10 Points.
Tin TiuT pushed Drake aside and
took another jump toward the Valley
chinipiuiiship yesterday afternoon. It
was rati. it a gentle push they gave the
Iowan-- .'. 1" to 0 victory for Mis
souri Inn the Varsity kept its record
clear with a touchdown and a drop
Th' a'hletes from Iowa gave the
Timers a mighty close" tussle. It
was ;in body's game for about three
period-. Drake sprung a surprise by
playiir- ;i strong game of old-fashioned,
line-buck football and little open
play. Ai.d Missouri did the same. But
the Tigei.-, were not "going" well. The
playing of Missouri yesterday wasn't
far MipiTior to that of the Northerners.
It was a game characterized by
good and ragged playing of both
teams. A cold east wind caused many
fumbles and made punting toward the
west uo.il difficult. The big feature
of the same resulted in the only touch
,. .vhen McWilliams got away foi
a tj'i-yard run through the Drake
team. Drake had punted to the
Tiger- :;5-yard line. McWilliams re
turned the ball 5 yards. On the next
pass of the ball he made the touch
down. No Scores Fir.st Half.
Thie was no scoring in the first
half. In the first quarter the Tigers
had the advantage. Then the Bull-
'h-.ss had it. The Tiaers had the dis-
j( advantage of defending the east goal

team commenced early in the quarter
; n d a number of exchanges of the ball
w.-re made on this account. Shepard
and Moore made the longest runs in
thu. quarter. Shepard making one run
of yards and Moore another for 30
The Bulldogs depended largely on
Simons, their captain and fullback,
Tor their effective playing. The big
fullback showed strong playing
throughout the game. He was Drake's
nio.-t effective and consistent ground
gainer. His 50-yard end run in the
second quarter was the second longest
urn made during the gan:c
The Tigers made their second score
earlv in the fourth quarter. They
worked the ball to Drake's 19-yard
line. Starting from here. Dunckel
mad. 1" yards through the line. The
Tigei failed to gain on the next two
down:-. McWilliams made a place
kick in m the 12-yard line.
It was in this quarter that Drake
app.-ar-d the most dangerous to the
Tigers. Iiy steady line bucking, Drake
forced the ball down the field, Crull
doing mo'.T of the effective gaining for
Drake. Speelman broke up the ad
vance f,m-e when he threw a Drake
player !or a 10-yard loss, but the
Drake team braced up and rushed the
ball to Missouri's 5-yard line. There
the Tigers held Drake for downs.
Sliep-ird kicked the ball from back of
the ao.d line to safety.

The Mi-.-Duri ends did not show up
weii at tackling. Many of the plays
were slopped by the backfield. Both
teams hammered the lines hard. Shep

for the Timers in both the offensive and
defiMi-he. Yesterday was the first
time u,i j ear that he has had to take

OPENED AFTER GAME
Man Who Had Bet on the
Aggies Told of Plays
Heie is an unique thing in college
annals. In a typewritten, unsigned
letter someone attempted to give the
Tiger formations and signals to Coach
Clyde Williams of Ames. It was ad
dressed to the captain or the Ames
team. And here is what Coach Will
iams, who was honorable enough to re
turn the letter litis to say:
"I have just found out this week,"
he writes to Prof. C. L Brewer, "that
you have at Missouri what I call a
dirty scamp." Some days ago a letter
came here from a Missouri rooter who
had bet -his money on Ames. In the
letter he told me quite a lot about
your plays and system. I think you
ought to know about this. I wish that
he had lost all of his money and every
thing else he had, but heiiprobably
didn't as a crook never takes the limit
Said George Willson, president of
the student body, at the mass meeting
Friday night: "With the promise for
the best football season Missouri has
ever had it looks like no time to start
the anvil chorus. But with the letter
that came from Coach Williams today,
it looks like there is someone among
us. who is not with us." Then Mr.
Willson read the letter from Mr. Will
iams. "If this sort of thing goes on," said
Mr. Willson in conclusion, "when
Chuck Wilson starts one of his scrap
py rushes in that Kansas game he will
be smothered; or when Lake starts
one of those end runs which are the
delight of every rooter's heart the
whole team will shift to meet him.
When Shepard starts down the field
with the ball every K U man will
wait for him. He will have to play
eleven men instead of one.
Chuck will be beaten. The team
will be beaten. We ought to make this
place so hot for that kind of a man
that he couldn't stay in town: so that
kind would never enter up in this

A Letter Home
I have been laying off several weeks
to write you that letter I promised.
But, you know, I hardly have time to
eat. I've gotten so I take as little time
as possible for that process, too. But
talk about the strenuous life. T. R.
never started that term. Universities
did. Why, there are so many things
to see and go to. here, that I feel like
I used to before the candy counter,
when Dad had given me a nickel.
Which shall it be?
You complained in your last letter
because I hadn't written the long let
ter which you wanted. Well, several
of my "profs" are in St. Louis at a
teachers' convention, so I have some
extra time now. They assigned twice
as much work on account of their ab
sence, of course. But everybody puts
it off until the night before they get
back, so I'll follow suit. That will
give me plenty of time to tell just
what I think of the U.
I told you about tlie trip down here.
The only thing that I shall never for
get was the baggage station. It looked
like the warehouse of a wholesale
trunk company. It took twenty-five
of thirty men to get them around to
the right houses. Some of them never
did get there.
Entering up was the next thing on
deck. And, believe me, when you get
ready to come down here year after
next, bring a little dynamite, or nitro
glycerine to break it with. Or better. I
bring the band cutters off of the
threshing machine to cut up the red
tape with. 1 wanted to take some
work not on the regular course. So
I asked Dean Loch about it. He gave
me a blank to be signed by three per
sons. When I went to see these three,
eveiyone said that I must see one of
the others before lie could sign. I
finally got up the nerve to ask one of
them where in the world the circle
At present, at least, class work is
merely a necessary appendix to foot
ball. Anyone here who can't discuss
the Tigers intelligently is a hopeless
bonehead. Why, at mass meetings,
you can often see a white haired wo
man sitting by the side of her 7 or S-year-old
grand-Jaughter and it would
be bard to tell which one was the most
enthusiastic. But we've got reason
to be happy this year. Our team beat
the Ames Cyclones for the first time.
E en tlie great '09 team couldn't do
Gee! I wish that you could come
.'or the Kansas game. We are going to
beat them this year and it is the sight
of a life time to see this town when
we lick tlie Jayhawkers.
It seems funny to think that you
never saw a night-shirt parade. It
looks like a mob of fellows had come
out on the street, dressed as we used
to be when we would rush down to the
fireplace on Christmas morning. They
always have a goat with the pennants
of the team we beat tied on him. A
big bonfire is built on one of the down
town streets, at the expense of the
merchants. Then we go up the street
to the girls' colleges h' a "Snake whip
crack line." Imagine a thousand play
ing whip-crack. I'm sending you a
flash-light "picture of it.
Yes, I was lucky cnougli to make
the band. And it sure is a dandy one.
Tlie wood-instrument section alone is
as big as our whole band at home.
They never play any ragtime. They
have such pieces as those on our pho
nograph, which sis's music teacher
recommended. I have learned more
music in these two months than I did
:n the two years before.
We practice twice a week. One
day we have to get out on the quad
and march with the rest of the Mili
tary. The fellows here call it war,
and use about the same language con
cerning it which General Sherman did.
The only thing I have against the band
is that they won't yell. You know
how I like to break loose.
At football games we have a stand
built on the opposite side from the
bleachers. And it is lots of fun to
watch the grand stand. Sometimes
they will all get up at once as though
a spring was released. Other times
they will get up in spots like the con
gregation at Mount Olivet when they
start to sing. And, say, you remember
that time that we sat on the gable
of the barn during that big wind storm
and got whipped for it. Do you re
member how the orchard, which was
'n full bloom, looked. That's just the
way the bleachers look when the
Tigers make a touchdown. And the
noise! Well. I never heard anything
like it at all. They are fine about
one thing. They don't jeer at the
other team, but give nine rahs for
them and cheer for their coach.
Well, hoping you are the same (as
Togo, per Wallace Irvin says) I am,
