THE EVENING 3MSS0UBIAN, WEDNESDAY, SEPTE3IBEB 26, 1917
Many students and townspeople
ar'e making daily trips to Rollins
Field to watch the early season foot
ball practice. Coach H. P. Schulte
is putting his men through hard
practice each afternoon trying to get
them in good physical condition for
the opening game here with William
Jewell October 6.
Scrimmage practice between the
regulars and the substitutes is a part
off the daily program. The backfield
positions are well taken care of by
experienced veterans. The line has
a number of green men, who need
much scrimmage and games to show
their ability. Evving and" Greenwood
are fighting for center, with honors
even to date. Uric is being tried at
Morris and Stevens are fighting for
quarter. Playing on the scrubs yes
terday afternoon, Stevens scored 10
points against the regulars, making
a touchdown by a long run through
a broken field. Later he scored a
place kick from the 20-yard line.

DETROIT, Sept. 2C It Is an open
secret that Manager Jennings of the
Detroit Americans doubts whether
Harry Coveleskle will be able to
pitch major league ball next season.
Last jear the big left-hander was a
star; this jear he was almost worth
less. His arm was weak and his
curve ball and confidence were con
spicuous by their absence.
Coveleskie passed the 30-year mark
several seasons ago, although he is
modest regarding his real age.- But
Jennings undoubtedly will take Cov
eleskie south and give him another
chance, as he realizes that a come
back is not an impossibility.

A. H. Wright -of the University of
Wisconsin and a special agent of the
United States Department of Agri
culture are in Columbia now to in
duce the College of Agriculture of
the University to co-operate with the
government in the raising of hemp
in Missouri. Mr. Wright is in charge
of the hemp experiment work at the
University of Wisconsin and wishes
to interest the University of Missouri
in running adaptation tests of hemp
in this state.
At the time of the Civil War. Mis
souri produced large quantities of
hemp, but soon the abolition of slav

caused the industry to be unprofitable
here. Now that the European supply
has been cut off, machinery has fa
cilitated the growth of the business,
prices have gone up and the demand
has grown with tRfc, possibility of
making binder twine from the raw
product. The manufacture of this twine
would alone be sufficient cause to
make the hemp industry worth while
to us, it is said, as at the present time
the United States imports this twine
from Mexico and duty makes it very

tives are to be singled out for special

lains and secretaries of the Naval

get names of enlisted men who have
no near relatives. The order's mem
bers are to take an individual and
parental interest in these men, with
the idea that their general well-being
might be. improved if they knew
something about them. This care
would be expressed by sending let
ters to the men and little gifts of re
membrance and by keeping track of
them throughout the war. It is the
hope of Its organizer that the order
may become nation-wide in its scope
and contribute a useful part in war
Mrs. Calvert, through recruiting
work, got in touch with many fine
young men who had no near relatives
and she was impressed by the lone
liness of their lives. She became con
vinced these men could be helped if a
personal interest was taken in them by
men and women, who, unable to ren
der any other service, could thus,
"do their bit" for their country.
Anyone in the United States more
than 30 years old may become a mem
her of the order by sending word to
Mrs. Calvert, 169 McDonbugh street.
Brooklyn, that he or she will dct as
godfather or godmother for one or
more of the enlisted men of the Navy
who have no near relatives. The only
requirement is that a stamped self
addressed envelope be sent by pros
pective members and in this will be
returned the name or names of as
many men as have been requested.
Then the new member takes it upon
himself or herself to write to the god
sons, rendering what aid and cheer
possible through the times of trial
