Dusk on Rollins Field one night
last week saw Coach H. F. Schulte In
In a "running-walk" up and down the
field, following a straggling looking
bunch of light football players. His
big, commanding voice every now
and then rang out in calls of "Get
that man. Kirk. What are you doing
there. Ham?" as he followed the dif
ferent practice plays.
Coach Schulte was fighting for next
Thursday afternoon. He was pre
paring for Missouri's final effort of
the 1917 season. He stopped now and
then to talk with a group of men who
stood on the sidelines with Athletic
Director Meanwell. Despite the
"fight" that has always been present
in the makeup of the coach, the men
who watched knew that Schulte
realized the uneven odds that have
piled up against Missouri.
Weight has always been against
Missouri, except perhaps in a few
ears when for some strange reason
the heavy men came to Columbia. The
Tigers with swift fighting elevens ln
1913, 1914 and 191C, overcame the at
tack of the Jayhawkers and were the
victors of the annual event. But that
was before the day of 1917, when
Schulte's men, handicapped perhaps
more than any other valley team by
war losses, is, in addition, out
weighed by the Kansas team about
twenty pounds to the man. Of course,
right here it might be well for a Mis
sourian to admit that there is a
slight conflict of opinion between
the coach from Lawrence and the
one from Missouri. Schulte maintains
that the! team he saw in action
against the Cornhuskers last Satur
day weighs 1S2 pound and Hamilton
just as stoutly gives his figures on
average weights of the Kansans as
173 1-2 pounds. Now Schults has
given the statement out that he will
leave his conclusion to a court of
arbitration, a court of justice or any
other legal means of settlement. And
he cites the case of Prindell, the big
Kansas half, as "the biggest half I've
ever seen." "And what do you think
this man Foster weighs," asks
Schulte. "Well, if he doesn't weigh
175 pounds I'm way off," maintains
the big Tiger mentor.
Other men called before the jury of
the Missouri Valley by Schulte on
this charge of too much weight on
the part of the Kansas team are
Mandeville, 16S pounder; Ruble, who
the coach puts in the 173-pound class,
not to mention Neilson, who is sus
pected as having once tipped the
scales around ISO. Everyone who has
seen the Tiger football team knows
that they average ,no more than 163
pounds and Schulte goes so far as to
say this is two or three pounds too
heavy, for a just estimate, consider
ing the fact that his men must lose
weight right up to the time of the
whistle next Thursday afternoon.
Victory ot Conceded
To Kansas Yet.
Gloomy! But at that Missouri does
not concede Kansas a victory in foot
ball next Thanksgiving afternoon.
There is a feeling here that the
Tigers, after a season of defeats, one
or two which were close, but a final
one by Nebraska which was so dis
tinct as to cut deep, will turn next
Thursday on the bird from Lawrence,
and send It back sorry and repentant
for its early season confidence. Mis
souri has done that before. If there
is one team to whichMissouri will
concede nothing it is the ancient
enemy from Mount Oread. Missouri
will have passed into history when
the spirit of fight, the spirit of con
fidence of victory against the Jay
hawker, is lacking. In evidence of
the fact one might give reasons why
the Tigers this year feel they have a
good fighting chance against the in
vaders. Missouri has a backfield and a
line, more or less. There must enter
into any discussion of the Tigers a
knowledge that the Tiger regulars are
resting for ten days before the Kan
sas game; that Captain Paul Hamil
ton, Bass, Rider, Morris, all first
string men, have not-been up to their
best forms all year, partly due to in
juries and that these injuries are
gradually healing up. The first part
of last week was a bad time for Tiger
practice. Injuries at Nebraska, and
some that dated back as far as the
Ames game, made the football men
who were on the athletic field look
like a real hospital squad. Bass and
Schroeder still had their arms In
slings; Pittam, who has only recently
entered the Tiger squad was not In
uniform but suffered from a sprained
ankle; Viner limped from an in
jured ankle; Morris suffered from
a "charleyhorse" and even Captain
Hamilton, despite the fact that he
was able to get around with his men,
showed signs of a battering that he
has gotten in many different practices.
These injuries have kept the veteran
players from previous games but they
will be in the contest against the
In the Backfield.
Missouri's greatest strength lies In
her backfield. There are: Edwards,
star of perhaps more games than any
other individual Tiger this year, who
will play half; Rider, whose ability
'to Missouri rooters Is well known, at
half; Harry VIner, to play the full
Kick position; "Bill" Collins, a mem
ber of the famous Collins family of
football stars, half; Pittam, track man
whose running with the ball might
count; Morris, at quarterback. All
are slowly getting Into shape for
their final game of the year. In ad
dition there are "Tiny" Stevens, Wil
son and Hcrschel Collins.
The line has held this year, but not
against a team like the one that will
come from Lawrence. Kirkpatrick,
big right guard, and Tom Berry, who
plays on the other side of the line
at the same position, may be able to
hold their own with the Jayhawkers
and Captain Hamilton if he comes in
to his own by Thursday may make his
ISO pounds show up well in the Tiger
defense. The majority of Missouri's
linesmen however, are outweighed
badly by the Kansans.
In comparative scores Missouri may
find some bit of comfort. In the last
five years the score In games has
been Missouri three, Kansas two, and
two of these Tiger victories have been
won on Kansas soil. But compara
tive scores, of the past, in war times
are not always the most reliable.
And for this reason Missouri is not
counting too much on what "Toby"
Graves, "Clint" Collins, "Liz" Clay or
any of the others did way back in the
days gone by.

Missouri is preparing for the big
game next Thursday in the same way
she has for two games past The town
and University are ready for a victory
For Missouri takes a victory for
granted as far as preparations are
concerned. Even the new night-shirt
is put away ready for the big parade,
scheduled for the hour of darkness
which follows the big contest. Green-
nouses are taking orders for mums,
the advance orders being bigger than
ever before. In fact Columbia is
prepared for the same sort of crowd
that came here two years ago.
Schulte's scrimmage practices this
year ended with the one yesterday
afternoon. All this coming week he
will put the Tigers through a light
practice daily. The Tigers are taking
long hikes out into the country, for
getting for a time the impending
battle. And the other afternoon,
when asked what the score would be
Coach Schulte. with his customarv
evasion and enthusiasm said: "You
know, I'll bet you a dollar it rains.'
The final game In the hockey class
championship series will be played at
4:15 o'clock Monday afternoon bo
tween the junors and seniors.
The senior-sophomore game Thurs
day afternoon resulted in a score of
7 to 1 in favor of the sophomores.
The splendid team work of the sopho
mores enabled them to defeat the
heavier and more experienced seniors.

The juniors defeated the freshmen
by a score of 4 to 1 Wednesday. In
the second half the score was tied.
The Juniors made three goals in the
last ten minutes of play. The sophomore-freshman
game, Friday, was
won by the sophomores 4 to 1. The
sophomores outplayed the freshmen the
