Rock Island and Moline high schools
played even in the first half of the
annual game at Athletic field in Mo
line this afternoon. The doughty Hock
Island boys kept possession of t he-
ball fully half of the time and Moling
was forced to kick repeatedly to keep
the oval out of the danger zone. Neith
er side scored.
Neither side t got within easy strik
ing distance except once and then
after a forward pass had been at
templed by Moline, Whiteside for the
Plow city grabbed the ball and ran
down the field for a touchdown. Ref
eree Moore, however, refused to allow
it to count.
Both sides are standing the battle
well and little lime was taken out in
the first half.
Despite the snow, there Is a large
crowd at the game.
Both In Good Shape.
With both team:) in fine condition
and the ground spi'ukled with snow,
the annual footoal game between
Rock Island and Moline is being
played this afternoon in Moline. The
weather condition.1; did not keep any
of the fans away from the game and
there was one of the largest crowds
in the history of the games between
(he two schools on the field when the
game was called at o'clock. On
dope Moline had the better of the ar
gument as they vrere somewhat heav
ier and had rounded into form earliei
in the year. Rock Island besides be
ing lighter than their opponents were
handicapped by the absence of tlu
heaviest and most powerful of the
linemen, Frey, whose injury in scrim
mage last Wednesday evening kept
him out of the game.
lolinr In 1'lne Shape.
Despite the bear stories which caino
from Moline all week, it was admitted
just before the game by the Moline
coach and captain that the team was
in first class condition and that there
was nothing to mar its prospects of
winning. From all indications the
game should be a fast and furious con
test and the winner will have to earn
Little Money I p.
But little money has been wagered
on the game. While in Moline busi
ness men formed a pool to wager on
the outcome of the contest, this meth
od of backing the team in Rock Island
has been frowned on for years, and
there is a general sentiment against
betting. In the school itself in Rock
Island there is very little betting done
on athletics, and the school authori
ties do all in their power to discour
age it outside of tne school.
While some big bets were reported,
it. is probable that no wager of over
$15 has been mad", and there are
only a few that involve more than $3.
Unt KndK to Play Here.
One of the very best of the inde
pendent games of the year will be.
played tomorrow w'hen the West Ends
of Moline clash with the strong team
from Spring Valley which has been
cleaning up every thins "n i a part of
the state. The West Ends ar in fine
fettle and despite the easy victory
scored by the visitors over the Fast
Ends of Moline earlier in the season
the chances for Victory appear about
even. The West Ends have met with
defeat but once this year and that
was at the hands of the Independents
of this city. The disbanding of the
Independents made a return match
impossible but the West Ends claim
they could have beaten the locals had
they played again. A large crowd of
local patrons of the game is expetted
to go to the game tomorrow as this
will be the last chance to see an in

Thc college team of Augustaua col

their second g-une of the year this
morning at thf campus anil for the
second time the younger players had
to bow in defeat to tne older boys.
The final store was 17 to o in favor
of the college. The field was not
quite ideal as it was too slippery, but
as III'? two teams were about evenly
matched neither side had any advan
tage from this condition. It was the
inexperience of the academy players
which was principally responsible for
their defeat. Few of thjm bavin
played before (his year they were at
loss when in possession of the ball
and very rarely succeeded in gaming
any ground. On the defense they put
up a strong game. However, and -it

college made the first store of the

kicked the goal, making the score It

17 when Rovelstad again kicked goal.

M. H. Sexton returned last night
from Chicago, where he attended the
meeting of the National Association
of Minor Baseball Leahies and the
meeting of the national board of arbi
tration of which he is a member.
The latter organization adjourned yes

Want to Control Ilonrd.
Mr. Sexton says there is a general
misunderstanding as to tiie real rea
son the Eastern league and American
association withdrew from the meet
ing of the minor leagues at Chicago
this week. Two demands were made
by these organizations, cue that the
Western and Southern lc r.guei be set
back to Class B and the other th?t
the Eastern 'and American be given
majority of the members of the board
of arbitration. Both were voted down
It was obviously unfair to the Western
ud Southern to reduce them and the
other ;0 minor leagues do not pro
pose to give up- control t.f their own
affairs to the two lea-line Class J
The latter, step was taken in 190
and in 1304 the Eartren league and
American association had three of the
five members of the bcal. So arbi
trarily did the;' run things that at the
close of 1904 the other .leagues by

With a majority of the board the
tvo rebelling leagues would be in po
sition to settle all diRpu?'? with sma
ler leagues over players franchises
and other matters to suit themselves
and would also have iver to treat
in their own way with the major
leagues. It is not like'.y that such
privileges will be granted them, even
though they go to the l:mit and be
come outlaws. It was left to the
board of arbitration to deal with the
two refractory leagues.

WOMEN OBJECT TO

Moline Organization on Declaration of
Member Vote the Production
The executive committee of the
i.ioline Woman's club yesterday at a
regular meeting adopted a protest
against the appearance of "The Devil,"
the Savage production, at the Moline
this evehing. A member who saw the
play at Chicago declared it to be im
moral and the resolution of protest
was accordingly adopted. "The Devil'
lias appeared in Rock Island and will
b'e here again tomorrow night. Many
who have seen it take a view opposite
that of the members of the Woman's
cjuh, holding that it points a valuable
moral. . The only effect of protests
against its appearance will probably
be to increase the box office receipts.
