THE EYEXIXG MISSOUKIAS, MOM) AY, XOTE3IBER 12, 1917.
Nebraska ought to have little
trouble In annexing the Missouri Val
ley cbampionsshlp this season, ac
cording to the members of th Tiger
football team uho arrived last night
after their 52 to 0 defeat at Lincoln.
Saturday's game between Missouri
and Nebraska was one In which a
heavy, experienced team overwhelmed
a light inexperienced and crippled
Pleven. The Tigers fought their best.
but their gameness availed nothing
against a team that is perhaps the
best the Valley has ever seen. When
Michigan defeated Nebraska by a
score of 20 to 0 and then defeated
Cornell by 38 to 0, one is given an
insight into the strength of Nebraska
this year as compared with eastern
Of course, there Is. Kansas still to
be considered. But every football
follower in the Missouri Valley feels
certain that while Kansas has a
strong team and one that may be able
to defeat Missouri Thanksgiving Day,
there is little possibility of the Jay
hawkers winning from Nebraska next
Saturday. Kansas defeated Oklahoma
Saturday at Norman but It had con
siderable trouble in doing it. The
score of 13 to C indicates that there
is not a great deal of difference in the
strength of Missouri and Kansas this
jear. And if Missouri's cripples get
in shape between now and the time
the game is played the outcome of the
game is no sure thing. More sur
prising things have happened man
that the Tigers should hold the score
to a tie or even win.
Missouri's next game is with Wash
ington next Saturday. The Tigers
should win. Washington defeated
Drake last week 20 to 0, while Mis
souri overwhelmed the Iowa team by a
score of 49 td 0. Then will come the
grind of practice for the annual clash
with the Jayhawkers.
Slusher suffered a couple of broken
ribs Saturday at Lincoln but the team
generally came out of the game in
good shape. The prospects are bright
for having the team in good physical
condition for the first time this season
uhen Kansas and Missouri meet, un
less the Washington game proves a
harder struggle than most persons
Introduction at the University of
Missouri of the Wisconsin style of
basketball, under the direction of Dr.
W. E. Meanwell, formerly basketball
coach at the Madison school now
athletic director here, began last
week when the first practice of the
season was held at Rothwell Gymn
asium. Missouri will learn a new
sort of basket ball this year, and,
judging from the play as Director
Meanwell taught it at Wisconsin, the
Tiger basketball work will be ofj
special interest throughout the en
tire Missouri Valley.
Behind Closed Doors.
Director Meanwell, In his office at
Rothwell Gymnasium one day last
week, told of the old M men that were
back this year, he noted the material
as he saw it in the Missouri Valley,
and then he was asked for a brief
outline of the sort of basketball he
would teach at Missouri. The Tiger
athletic head hesitated a moment, and
then, "Mow," he said, "I've been ex
pecting just such a question as that."
Then he continued," But if you'll come
out here any night after practice is
started in earnest you'll see that I
mean what I say when I tell you that
Tiger basketball practice this year,
and every other year while I'm in
charge will be behind closed doors.
You have heard of secret football
practice well, that's what you're go
ing to have in basketball now. But
when you do see the Tiger team in ac
tion you'll see a real Valley contender,
Wisconsin Won 92
Out of 101 Games.
There is perhaps no where in the
United States one man who has had
such unusual success with his basket
ball work as has Athletic Director W.
E. Meanwell. Fron one side of the
United States to the other and as far
from Wisconsin as the University of
Texas, there have been men sent to
see the Wisconsin game of basketball.
A record of four championship teams
in six years, with ninety-two victories
out of a total of 101 games Is perhaps
a record unequalled in the history of
basketball games in the United States.
As a result basketball stars from al
most every high school in the country
have been attracted to Wisconsin
Illinois, Missouri and many other
states having contributed men who
hae been responsible for Wisconsin
successes. Here in Missouri two
Kansas City high school stars, Diggle
and Smith were onvDoctor Meanwell's
teams and, according to the new Mis
souri sports head, were two of his
most successful players.
While Director Meanwell refuses to
discuss just the kind of basketball he
is teaching his team at Missouri the
kind he taught at Wisconsin has been
described as "short pass basketball
where a shot farther than eight or
ten feet from the basket is practically
barred. The idea seems to be to take
only a few shots at the basket but to
make these shots good when they are
taken. It is a good defensive game."
Short Pass Game Said.
To Tire Out the 1'Iajers.
v Athletic Director Meanwell's game
of basketball has been characterized
as one in which the men are too easily
worn out it has been asserted that
the short pass is more wearing on the
men than the long "whale" from one
end of the gymnasium to theother, as
Director Meanwell characterizes it.
less wearing on the men than the long
pass. According to authorities the
Meanwell teams have always succeed
ed in keeping the ball in their pos
esslon 70 per cent of the time. The
Wisconsin style of basketball was used
to some extent two years ago when
VanGent. coach at Texas, gave the
Kansas Aggies so close a run for the
Valley championship. While the style
of VanGent was not an exact copy of
the sort used by Meanwell now, It was
similar in many ways. VanGent was
center on the Wisconsin team for
Four M Jtten Are

There are four of Missouri's
basketball M men back this year.
Captain J. L. Campbell, Sam Shirkey,

Harry Viner, both guards are in

Cann and Keith, with Craig Ruby,
star Kansas City basketball man and
captain of the Tiger freshmen two
years ago, also in line for a place on
For six years Wisconsin had secret
practice in basketball. Starting this
year Missouri will not only, have
secret practice but, in addition, If the
methods of Meanwell at Wisconsin are
followed there will be grouting done
and regular reports on the plays of
other schools well be studied. Director
Meanwell has not announced as yet
any plans for "scouting" but it is
possible that this line of work will
be added to Missouri's basketball pro
