Tri-City High Schools Casting
About for a Substitute
for Foot Ball.'
DAVENPORT LEADING MOVE
Old Fashioned Gridiron Game Growing
in Bad Odor Among Moline
The more the Davenport school au
thorities and high School football en
thusiasts and players think about it.
the more are they in favor of dropping
football unless brutality is eliminated
and substituting some other gamt.
Principal D. W. Wells, of the high
school in an interview voiced senti
ments along this line. Socker football
is not in favor, however. In some
quarters pushball is being urged as a
substitute. In this game there is no
kicking or running with the ball. It is
played with 11 men on a side the same
as football and. a gridiron similar to
that for football is used. A large
leather ball six fett from end to end
and of equally large side dimensions is
used. The object of the game is to
push the ball over the opposing goal
line. There is never any kicking or run
ning with the ball, a player can never
be off-side. It is a case of push and
roll, and a ball so large, filled with air,
Is light enough to furnish considerable
fun in the antics which it will perform
in the air.
In Molme. where the football is as
firmly rooted as in any other place in
the west, the rough tactics displayed in
the final game of the season between
the Moline club and the East Ends, has
given the sport a black eye that it will
be slow to recover from.

Mildred Holland Coming. In the pro

tray the role of Catherine the Great of
Russia, at the Illinois theatre at an
early date. It will be one of the most
interesting events of the dramatic sea
son. The action of the play takes place
between 1759-17G2. Only the nobler
side of the fearless Catherine is
brought into the dramatic action from
which the dramatist has constructed a
most interesting and well sustained ro
mance. Many of the important person
ages who participated in the glories of
the "Scmiramis of the North" figure
prominently in the play, notably Peter
III, Prince Potemkin, Prince Gallitzin.
