Friday's Outbreak at the High
School Results in Summary
Action by Principal.
OCCURS IN HIS ABSENCE
Those Who Disregard Order to Dis
card White Collars Have Itai
ment Torn from Them.
Principal H. E. Brown of the Rock
Island high school was In Chicago
Friday. He spent this morn
ing In "canning" a number of the
male pupils of the school who par
ticipated in the "soft sbirt" episode
during his absence. 'As was announc
ed in The Argus Friday evening, the
boys of the school had ordered a
"soft shirt" day and the majority
observed it. A few of the demurring
ones appeared at the school with
stiff collars -and they were immed-
lately pounced upon. Boys left their
session without permission Just to
chase any one who had such a col
larn, and many a shirt and collar
were torn by them. A son of one of
the instructors was seized and his
collar was taken off. At. this time
papa interfered and had a lengthy
argument with his son's antagonists.
Throughout the day there was plen
ty of excitement. In the afternoon
the soft shirters" were posing for
a group picture when one of the boys
appeared attired in stiff collar. The
beautiful pose which they had as
sumed was quickly spoiled and the
"soft shirters" chased the boy down
the street. At least 50 boys chased
after him. but fright seemed to add
speed to his legs and he could not be
overtaken. Finally one of the "soft
shirters" borrowed a bicycle and
eauui u i wiiii mm auu ueiu nun
till the mob reached him. His shirt
and collar were then torn from him
Appear la Red Flannel Sbirt.
In the morning one of the boys
was suspended for appearing in a
red flannel shirt with a red tie to
match. The color was somewhat
brilliant and so he was given an op
portunity to go home and make a
change. Instead of so doing he sat
across the street upon the curbstone
and the reflection from his attire waa
cast upon the school. In the after
noon he very kindly loaned the shirt
and tie to another boy. The result
was that two were suspended for
wearing the flashy apparel.
Reviving: Old-Time Spirit.
The action of the pupils is the
first of the kind shown in the school
for some time, and it appears that
the old-time school spirit Is being
revived. Those who were suspended
this morning confidently expect that
instead of having but one week's va
cation that they will haye two.
TIGERS WALLOPED. AGAIN
Moline's Crack Baseball Team Goes
Down Before Greenbush Boys.
For the second time this season the
camp of the Thornbloom Tigers' base
ball team of Moline has been Invaded
by a like aggregation from Rock Isl
and and the proud Tigers have been
forced to bite the dust upon both oc
casions. Yesterday afternoon the
Greenbush team of this city played
with the Tigers and defeated them 5
to 4. The Tigers were defeated the
preceding Sunday ay the 2600 team
and confidently expected that they
would even up matters by winning
yesterday. However, they were una
ble to connect with the fine delivery
of Pitcher Humes of the local team.
But for the many errors behind Humes
the Tigers would have been shut out.
The local team made eight errors and
they were all costly. The Tigers made
but three hits and 16 strikeouts were I
credited to Humes. Upon the other j
hand, the Greenbushera connected
with Ramberger of the Tigers qui!

which won them the game. The bat

of the year. The winners expect to
have the leading amateur organization

ber of pitchers during the contest In
order to get the best ones lined up.
The losers put up a stubborn battle
