SUNDAY MORXUfG MISSOUBlAy, SEPTEMBER 16, 1917.
Tomorrow afternoon, on seven foot
ball gridirons In the Missouri Valley
Conference will begin the annual
autumn struggle tha struggle for
football supremacy. The same lineup
of schools will be in the fight the
jayhawkers, the Tigers, Ames, Wash
ington, Drake, and they are always
remembered when the season is over
the Kansas Aggies and the Oornsusk
ers of Nebraska. War apparently will
not affect the race for the valley
championship. The same old fight will
'be waged and the same schools, with
somewhere near the same number of
old veterans back as In past years,
will be battling through September,
October and up until the first day of
Preliminary forecasts have already
made their appearance in the valley.
Prelininary reports sent out on the
number of players who will return
show that Ames and Washington will
be the heaviest losers by the call to
arms and the numerous other reasons
which cause good players to sever
their connections with the schools.
Washington ranks lowest in the list, as
far as number of old veterans is con
cerned, having only four old letter
men, -while the Kansas Aggies with
nine and the University of Kansas
with eight, lead the list in so far as
old material is concerned.
The Missuorian yesterday compiled
a list of men who would return, the
comparative strengths of the players
and a general lineup on the condition
of football in the Missouri Valley.
Coach H. F. Schulte, leader of the
Tigers, expressed the opinion recent
ly that the lack of veteran material
would make competition for team
places all the stronger throughout the
Valley. Competition naturally will
make the men who qualify better pre
pared to do their work and will, it is
believed, make such schools as Wash
ington University of St Louis and
Ames, the two lowest ranking ones in
number of old men, come to the front
with a better showing than the early
seacon forecast would indicate. The
Tigers have always had reason to look
to Ames for a regular football game
and it is only in the last few years
that the old Ames hoodoo has been
lifted by the Tigers.
'ebraska Hill Hare
A Strong Team.
The two most promising teams in
the valley according to the Missourian
report are the Kansas Aggies, strong
est in number of veterans, and Ne
braska, perhaps just as strong in
material. The Aggie eleven will be
lead by Randcls, captain elect and all
valley end, and the men on the team,
E. Ptacek, Rhoda, Clark, Dodrill,
Whedon, L. Ptacek, Sullivan and Slat
tery, are known to be men who will
figure prominently in the games of the
valley through the season. The Aggies
are weak in the backfield. The Tigers
are strongest in this part of the lineup,
while Kansas has eight men who are
nearly evenly divided .'between "the
line and the backfield. At Kansas
there is Xeilson, fullback, Robert
Martin and Austin Frost, tackles,
Warren Woody, guard, Tom Pringle,
half, Ed. Todd, quarter, F. I. Wilson,
end and Jean Minor, center . They are
eight men who played at Kansas last
season and it occurs to most football
followers that if all these men return
there will be as good a number of
veteran men at the University of Kan
sas as there have been in many sea
sons of the past Coach Olcott's as
sistant has resigned, thus leaving a
vacancy on the Lawrence coaching
staff, but it is likely that the Kansas
aggregation will be whipped into
pretty fair shape by the single coach,
The University of Missouri has
learned to consider carefully the ma
terial at Kansas before conceding that
schoors defeat and thus far the Tiger
followers are highly Interested in the
excellent team that seems to be re
turning to Lawrence. With the big
Thanksgiving Day game scheduled for
Columbia this year the University of
Missouri Is interested perhaps as much
in the defeat of Kansas as in the win
ning or a Valley championship. So

ana Slusher and Bass, linemen, who
are already back are already being
pointed to the big day when the Uni
versity must refend Itself on its own
ground. The Tiger chances for victory
In the valley race are also strengthen
ed by the fact that Wilson, another
all-round good football man, whose
work on the freshmen team last year
seemed to assure him a place this
season, has returned, and that each
day the old veterans of the freshmen
squad in 1916 continue to come in.
Washington And Ames
Mill Furnish Hard Games.
Missouri cannot put Washington or
Ames out of the reckoning, for Wash
ington played Missouri on Francis
leld in 1915, and .Missouri cannot for
get for three or four seasons at least
Tiger supporters walked home or
borrowed money in St. Louis that year
and this year the struggle is to be on
Francis Field again. So the University
of Missouri is not taking anythingfor
granted. At least, it will surely take
a good number of new men on the
Washington team to put that school in
the running for a valley champion
ship. The veteran men of the Pikcway
school are Kling, Benway, Grossman
Jumping from what Is apparently the
weakest school in the valley to what
appears to many to be the strongest,
or one of the two strongest, it seems
that Nebraska is the Idgical, and gen
eral favorite. There are Captain
Shaw, Rhodes, Riddell, Cook, Outapal-
lk and Dobson back and only two con
ference games to play, one with the
Tigers and one with the Jayhawkers.
Only one of these is on the ground
foreign to the Nebraska team.
A nucleus ot five men will form the
first part of the Ames team and will
assist in bringing out the new men
who always show up at the first of
school. Captain Denfield, Barler,
Breeden, Schalk and Tucker all have
signified their intentions of entering
the Iowa Agricultural School this
week and 'will doubtless be there for
the first practice of the year.

Pure food is more than a matter of legislative enactment.
Food products may still legally contain ingredients which the
consumer, who takes an intelligent interest in his health, will
not eat. The spirit behind the movement for Letter food is
more or less effectively expressed in the food laws, but the
honest purveyor is not satisfied with the mere compliance with
the letter of the law. Having caught the spirit, he serves food of
quality often beyond legal requirements; he states what he is
doing and patiently waits for public indifference to be replaced
by public indorsement.
