"17 MISSOURI ELEVEH
Harrfsonville, Mo., Tackle,
Chosen Today From Six
' Eligible Men.
ALL RECEIVED VOTES
Selection of-Leader Is .Made
on Second Ballot; Eight
M Men Graduate. s
Paul Hamilton ot Harrisontille,
Mo, a junior in the College of Arts
and Scienajf, was elected today by tie
eighteen' M men on this year'a foot
ball squad to lead the 1917 Tigers.
The election to the captaincy came
on the second ballot, after each of the
six men eligible to the place had re
ceived votes on the first Pre-elec

leader for next year's eleven had been
varied, owing to the number ot-,xnen
who were considered candidates for
the position. The election of Hamil
ton came, as a tribute to his ,pepu

Hamilton this year played his se$
ona season as a nger ret,umr. oo

and he con
tinued h i s
at this -po

Kansas line was a potent factor in
the Missouri victory Thanksgiving
Day, and, along with Rider and Stan
kowski, he received a major part of
the credit for the defeat of the Jay
hawkers. Weighing 171 pounds and
standing six feet tall, he used his
physique to the best possible advan
tage and is in line for a position -on
the all-Valley eleven.
Hamilton had played little or no
football when he entered the Univer
sity three years ago. Since that time
he has put Harrlsonville on the ath
letic map. His popularity with the
townspeople bf Harrlsonville is. shown
by the fact that a large body of them
came to the Kansas game carrying a
large banner bearing the inscription
"Paul Hamilton's Home TownyJHar-
risonville, Missouri." These loyal
friends later became so Incensed over
a newspaper account of the game
which seemed unfair to them that
'sixty of them promptly discontinued
their subscriptions. Hamilton is a
