In one of the fiercest class clash ss
in the history of Augustana college,
the sophomore3 last night gained a
decisive point over their rivals, the
freshmen. As a result of the clash,
the freshmen held their annual ban
quet at the Hotel Davenport minus
one of their classmates, A. EL Nelson
of South Rock Island. While the
freshlos were enjoying their "spread,"
with as much enjoyment as they could
under the circumstances. Nelson was
in the toils of the upper classmen and
eating a restaurant meal, the treat of
the sophs in lieu of the missed ban
quet.' The. freshies made little or no at
tempt to conceal the fact yesterdiy.
that a banquet was to bo held. Conn
dent in their strength and superior
numbers and elated over their former
victories, the freshies boldly decided
to throw down the gauntlet and offer
open battle to the sophs should the
latter attempt to interfere with their
plans. The freshies had all their
best Sunday clothes sent over the river
to the hotel by other students during
the course of the day, and dressed
themselves in roughest battle array for
the anticipated conflict.
Excitement AH Day.
There was excitement in the air all
day yesterday at the college. The
sophs "were busy planning methods of
kidnaping the freshies, while the lat
ter laid clever plans to evade their
rivals. Up to C o'clock, the time for
departure, no freshie had fallen a vic
tim. At that hour the freshies exe
cuted a quick and well-planned ma
neuver by which all the boys of the
class were gathered together -in one
body and a minute later they were off.
The move was made so quickly that
the sophs lost all trace of them and
for a time were at a loss as to what
to do. It developed afterwards that
the freshmen proceeded to Forty-second
btreet, where their girls had as
sembled at the home of one of the
members of the class.
Blockade at Hotel.
The sophs meanwhile boarded a car
for Davenport and formed a blockade
around the hotel. Within a half an
hour the freshies made their appear
ence, marching in double column up
the street toward the hotel. The girls
came first in twos, and the boys
brought up the rear. The sophs per
mitted the girls to pass by them into
the hotel and an instant later the fight
The battle raged in front of the
hotel at first, but soon the scene of
conflict changed to the alley in the
rear. The sophs had succeeded In se
curing three freshies and were strug
gling desperately to carry them awiy
through the alley. The freshies who
had succeeded in getting into tho
hotel immediately missed their class
mates and heroically made a sally to
attempt their rescue. The fight in the
dark alley" continued fiercely for over
five minutes, the freshies finally suc
ceeding in liberating two o f their men
The third one, however, was gone.
Sopba Ileaten Back.
The sophs made one more attack on
the freshies as they entered the hotel
the last time, but wer ebeaten back
thoroughly xhausted. A large crowd
of people had been attracted by the
clash and the street in front of the
hotel was crowded. The members of
both classes presented a dismal ap
pearance, none of them wearing hats
and all showing more or less marks ot
the battle. It was not until the fresh
ies began counting noses that the real
mourning commenced, for it was then
that Nelson was found missing.
The sophs, who had secured him in
the Riley, hurried him struggling
through alleys and side streets away
from the hotel to the river. Nelson
called lustily for help, but the sopbs
explained to pedestrians that it was a
college class affair and no one inter
fered. They proceeded with their vic
tim across the river on the ferry and
took him to a Rock Island restauran
where he was given a "feed." After
that they took him to the college dor
mitory, where he was kept a prisoner

FATHER AGAINST SON.
Novel Contest Between the Gardners
For Buffalo Golf Championship.
Mr. W. Allen Gardner of the Coun
try cjub of Buffalo won the city cham
pionship on tbe Park club links recent
ly. The runner up was his seventeen-year-old
son. Hamilton Gardner. This
was tbe unique result of the ploy that
eliminated all other contestants in a
field of nearly 100 entrants. Never be
fore in this country has a father faced
bis son in tbe final of a city champion
ship contest. . The unusual situation
aroused the greatest interest among
golfers, and the press of the city fea
tured the match in prominent head
lines. Allen Gardner, the new champion,
has for years been a star member of
the County club team and has played
in many tournaments in this and other
states as well as in Canada. His prow
ess as a golfer Is well known, and
from the first be was considered a
likely candidate for championship hon
ors in the city tournament. But no
one iBOugbt of Hamilton in that con
nection. The youngster has been play
ing tbe game only a couple of years,
but bis advancement has been so rapid
that his father openly confessed his
fear of the result when the final test
That his fears were well grounded
was shown at the very start of the
match, when the boy won the first
two holes and, after halving the third,
won the fourth, making him 3 up.
It looked very much at this stage as if
the son was about to make a runaway
game of It. ne was clearly playing
the better golf and showed absolute
confidence, without a sign of nervous
ness. Tbe large gallery that followed
in the wake of the strangely matched
pair, which was composed of Mr.
Gardner's old golfing friends, could
with difficulty refrain from chaffing
the father on his Impending defeat:
but, of course, they restrained them
selves, although their amusemeDt must
have been perfectly obvious to the
exasperated sire. k
Hamilton was 2 if at tbe turn
and going as smoothlyfns silk. But at
this juncture the "olu man" took a
mental bracer and proceeded to close
up the gap in the score. Right at the
tenth hole he started his gait, winning
It In 3 to Hamilton's 4. As the bogie
Is 5, it can be seen that the pair were
straining every nerve. They went
along In bogie to the twelfth, which
Allen won in one stroke under tbe
colonel's pattern. For the first time In
the match they were all square. Tbe
kid" took the thirteenth in 4, but Al
len evened up by winning the next
hole. The father annexed the next two
holes and held this advantage to the
end. winning by 2 up. This ended the
most novel contest for the city cham
pionship that Buffalo will ever see, in
all probability. American Golfer.

The Independent football champion
ship of the state is the stake for which
the West Ends of Moline and the team
from Spring Valley will battle in their
game in Moline tomorrow afternoon.
There will be little doubt left as to
the championship honors In case the
Moline team wins, though if it loses
the. title will belong apparently to no
one. The Moliners have played a tie
game with the Peoria Socials, which
practically means that no game was
playe'l. Comparison of scores, how
ever, 6hows that the West Ends were
better than the Socials, even though
they were unable to defeat them in the
sea Of mud on which they played three
weeks ago. The East Ends of Moline
lost to the Peorians by a score of 5
to 2, and the West Ends turned In and
trimmed the EaSt Ends by a score of
12 to 0. f
Valley Loae to Soelala.
The Spring Valley team has also met
the Peorians and lost to them, but the
score of 3 to 0 Indicates that the teams
were pretty evenly matched, and so
the game with the West EDds will give
the Moline team another chance to
use the comparative score scheme In
figuring the championship title!' , If the
Moline team loses it will give each
the West Ends, the Socials andthe
Spring Valley teams an equal claim to
the title. On past performances this
is what will probably happen, as the
Spring Valley boys have come to Mo
line year after year and trimmed them.
The West Ends hope to stop this suc
cession of victories this year, as they
feel that'they have the best team they
have ever had and that it is this year
McBrlde New nt Half.
The West Ends are not In the best
of shape for the battle, but they ex
pect to do themselves Justice, never
theless. The back field will work un
der the handicap of having a strange
man in it, as the injury received by
Anderson, right half back, in last Sun
day's game will necessitate him re
maining out of the game for sometime
at least. He sprained his wrist and
he might injure it further if he tried
to play. Clyde McBride, the Islander
ball player, will take Anderson's place.
Mac apparently has the goods, but it Is
asking too much of a player to expect
him to do his best playing with but
two nights of practice in which to
learn the plays and the signals of the
team. The team worked very smooth
ly last night, however. nd the coaches
and players have hopt that there will
be no slips in the game in which so
much is at stake. The probable lineup
for the game Is as follows: Carlson,
center; Swanson and Owens, guards;
Teats and Carlmark, tackles; Heffer-
man and Pierce, ends; MacManus,
quarterback; Wolfe and McBride, half
backs, and Johnson, fullback.
Game Starts at 3.
The game will be called at 3 o'clock
at Athletic park. It is -probable that a
curtain raiser will be played between
two Davenport teams. In this event,
the first game will be starte dabout 2
o'clock and it will be all over before
