Schulte, who is spending the stim-

next year's prospects, clippings from,
newspapers and instructions to the
future Tiger stars.
In what corresponds to the editorial
column in a newspaper the Tiger foot
ball mentor predicts a hard season for
Missouri, but at the same time is op
timistic; says that all the other teams
are stronger this year than last, but
does not mention any games that
.Missouri will lose; and ends up by
telling the men to study the rules and
get in condition so as to be ready to hit
the line hard and low the first day.

"The false god which the people of

"The people in this country spend

the worship of this false god. This
