TO PLAY THE GAME
Principal H. E. Brown Decides to
Allow Football Contest With
TALKED OF CANCELLING IT
Students and Other Spectators Warned
to Control Themselves or
Sport Will End.
After go ins over the situation thor
oughly, the authorities of die Moline
hl-Jh hchool and Principal H. 15. Brown
of the Rock Island hish school have
coneluileel to allow the schools to meet
in the annual' foot hall contest as plan
ned. It is believed that in the face of
the fatal results of the display of bit
in ss between Uock I.-land and Dav
enport, there will be no di.liculty what-
ver, and that the same will he one of
inecely friendly rivalry. The teams,
however, will co "into the same with
I lie usual spirit, and I ho same itself
will loso nothing of its interest.
Mr. Brown stated this morning that
he had concluded to allow the same to
e played, thoush at first he had favor
ed cancel lins the same. He said he
had no objeciion to contests with the
Me.Iinc or Davenport hi.sli schools as
Ions as the feeling "lid not become
mure inh use than one of friendly ri
valry. He stated positively, however.
that the conduct of the students, and
of the spectators from outride tile
hool as well, will determine whether
IJook Island and Mid:ne are to con
mile athhtie relations, or whether ihc
same action is to be taken with Moline
that has been taken wiih Davenport.
:i nl athletic relations severed.
MmiiiIiI llrnl Wiirniii:;.
The pupils of both schools will be
truest ly cautioned about the game
to he played Nov. 17. and warned not
to allow their enthusiasm and 'support
of their team to excite bitterness. The
lovers of football, basketball, and other
gh school athletics, regret that the
n:t horities were comix lied to sever re
lliorts willi Davenport, and hope ih-e
sncli action will not he neeessarv
ween Rock Islam! and Moline-. In the
warning to the students not to create
hitter let ling over the game, the
chool auihorities ask tha' the citizens
lso heed the wnrnins. and consider
the critical state of high school nth
letics in the three cities at this time.
Atliluilr Mi't-lK Approval.
The public, .generally, approves the
stand taken by Mr. Brown and Princi-
al Smart of Davenport, and while, it
necessary, lor sucli action lie would
o upheld in taking the same course'
with Moline. it is hoped that the les
.n of the accident in Davenport last
cek will be sufficient to prevent the
mho conditions at the Rock Island-
Moline game. Kvory influence should
be brousht to discourage anv -elenieni-
tratien during. the game, and a whole
