THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1910.
WITH ITS WEIGHT
Rock Island High School Eleven
Fails to Score Against the
Warren County Team.
LOCALS ARE MERE TOYS

haustedVictors Roll Up 28
Rock Island high school football
team met defeat at Monmouth Satur
day by a score of 28 to 0. The locals
were outweighed nearly 20 pounds to
a man, the Monmouth team average
being 170 pounds. The handicap was
too much for the Rock Islanders. Mon
mouth pounded the line until the Rock
Island boys were exhausted and then
commenced a series of forward passes
and trick plays which completely baf
fled the tired players. Twenty-two
points were- scored in the first half
and then the Monhiouth. team let up
to seme extent and in the second half
Rock Island held them to one touch
down. The local boys were helpless in ad
vancing the ball. The heavy Monmouth
line broke through repeatedly and
stopped plays before they were fair
ly started. Budelier experienced great
difficulty in minting, as half the kicks
were blocked, but those which he did
get away with were dandies and were
a feature of the game. MacMamis
wrenched an ankle in the second half
and was compelled to retire, although
the injury is. not serious enough to
keep him out of the game next week.
Grove played a star game for the
Rock ( Islanders on the defense, and
much of the tackling .was done by
him. He seemed able . to break !
through the Monmouth line despite its
weight and strength.
The boys were well treated by the
Monmouth authorities, but were not
properly taken care of. No place to
rest was furnished them in the morn
ing and they were compelled to spend
their time upon the streets. They
were pretty well tired out before It
was time to play the game. Had they
been able to rest up after their trip
to Monmouth early in the morning un
fiouDtediy they would nave put up a
far better game.

AUTO TO LAJOIE
Clevelander Defeats Cobb in
Batting Contest Through
SEVEN BUNTS ROLL SAFE
Credited With Eight Hits in Same
Number of at Bats In Double
Header at St. Louis.
The American league season closed
yesterday, while the Nationals will
continue to play just one week longer.
Since Philadelphia had long had a
cinch on the championship of the
Americans chief interest centered at
the finish in the batting contest for a
prize automobile between Ty Cobb of
Detroit and Larry Lajoie of Cleveland.
Cobb was ahead before yesterday's
game and did not play, while Lajoie
won the auto by making eight hits in
the double header with St. Louis. Nine
times he came to bat and was credited
with a sacrifice once. Once he hit a
three-bagger to center and th other
seven times he bunted toward third
and Ibeat the ball out. Each time Cor
ridon played back for him and Lajoie
rolled an easy one toward him and
beat out the throw.
Dispatches state that the crowd was
far from satHfled with the exhibition,
the belief being general that the St.
Louis players were voluntarily help
ing the Cleveland star. The unofficial
figures on Lajoie's and Cobb's batting
for the season follow;

0LDFIELD OUTLAW IF
HE RACES JOHNSON
Auto Racers Ietermined to Keep
Negroes from This Form of
Indignation caused by the report
that one of their number is to enter
competition with a negro has caused
many of the famous automobile drivers
of the country to condemn Barney
Oldfield for agreeing to drive a match
race against Jack Johnson, the heavy
weight champion pugilist of the world.
Officials of the A. A. A. have an
nounced that Johnson is not eligible
to registration as a driver and further
that Oldfield will be subject to out
law in case he drives the race. Some
time ago Johnson was denied the right
to drive at the Indianapolis motor
speedway. Protest by the white driv
ers who were to contend at those
races eaused the speedway manage
ment to bar Johnson. In case Oldfield
drives against Johnson the first place !
at which the other drivers will have
an opportunity to make a stand in
their position is at Atlanta, Nov. 3, 4
and 5. Oldfield is entered at the At
lanta speedway races, as are many of
the drivers who are protesting against
the race with Johnson. If Oldfield
drives the race against the negro and
i3 allowed to drive at Atlanta, the oth
er drivers say they will refuse to put
their cars upon the course. However,
the fact tha:. he will become an out
law after driving the race would leave
the Atlanta spfeedway management
no alternative other than to bar him
from the track.
"Wild Bob" Burman and Arthur
Chevrolet are to pilot the powerful
Marquette-Bufck racing cars in the
grand prize race on Xong Island Oct.
15, according to the announcement of
Dr. Wadsworth Wairen, manager of
the famous Buick racing team. Louis
Chevrolet, the other driver of the
Buick organization, will not be a con
tender in the great international event
this year, owing to injuries which he
received in the Vanderbilt cup race
Oct. 1, when his powerful car crashed
through the fence and killed his mech
anician, Charles Miller. Chevrolet
suffered from dislocated shoulder and
other bruises which will prevent him
from racing next Saturday. His car
was badly wrecked and it will be im
possible to repair It In time for the
Burman and Arthur Chevrolet are
preparing the big motors for the race
and early this week will be out for
the morning trials. The showing
made by the Marquette-Buick cars In
the Vanderbilt was exceedingly grati
fying to the drivers, for they led the
race by many minutes during the first
15 laps, although 111 fortune In acci
dents nut them out of the running af-
ter that time. It was proven beyond
a doubt that the cars were faster by
fully 10 per cent than any other entry
in the race.
Burman estimated that the speed
of the race would-be much higher than
it really was, and was tearing through
space at the rate of 75 and SO miles
an hour average over the 12.64 mile
course, despite the fact that the crowds
put him in constant danger and the
road was far from being in good con
dition. Rival drivers have paid the
Marquette-Buick cars the compliment
extreme by saying they believe them
to be the fastest cars that have ever
traveled the Vanderbilt way.

Form and Take Local Eleven

HAD TO HUSTLE, HOWEVER
Losers Outplayed the Victors
Tims, but Luck Breaks With
The Maroon football of Rock Is
land met defeat again yesterday, this
time at the hands of the Social Ath
letic club of Peoria, the final count
being 27 to 0. The game was played
at Riverview park, Peoria, and it
was not as one-sided as the score
would seem to Indicate. The Ma
roons, who have strengthened up
considerably since their game with
the Mollne West Ends a week ago.
put up a powerful argument against
their fast and heavy opponents and
at many stages of the game they had
the Peorians outplayed. All the for
tunes of war favored the other team,
however, , and touchdowns were made
on fluke plays repeatedly. Several
rulings of the Peoria referee effect
ively prevented the local players
from scoring, one of these rulings
coming after a long run had carried
the ball over the goal line. The
runner was brought back upon the
claim that he had stepped out of
bounds while runniDg.
Illlni Oprn Sfaion.
The Illini club of Moline opened
its season auspiciously yesterday by
drubbing the Peoria Diamonds by a
score of 3 9 to 0. The game was
played at Athletic park, Moline, and
a thousand rooters saw it. The newly
formed Illini team played great ball
and seemed to gain at will either
through the visitors' line, around
its ends or on forward passes. Free
berg and Wyland starred with long
runs through the Diamonds. The
visitors, who were greatly outweigh
ed, could do nothing towards carry
ing the ball and they played for
ward passes galore, many of them
with success. The Illini finally
fathomed the play, however, and
succeeded in breaking it up before
a touchdown resulted.

Moline High School Shows Ottawa
Boys That They Are Still in
Davenport high school won from St.

Saturday afternoon, the score being 9
to 0. The game was a brilliant one,
there being plenty of spectacular play
ing by both sides to make it interest
ing to the crowd. The kicking of Full
back Shuler of the high school won
the game for his team and staved off
what appeared like certain defeat by
the collegians. The high school boys
outweighed the losers five or six
pounds to a man, but the collegians
ripped through the line and circled
the ends time after time for steady
gains, while the high school boys made
first down by carrying the ball only
twice throughout the contest. The big
fullback was called upon repeatedly to
kick the ball and the punts were so
high and eo far that the St. Ambrose
quarterback could not handle them
properly. The result was over half
the kicks were recovered and long
gains were made in this way. Shuler
dropkicked a goal in the first quarter
after a fumbled kick had placed his
team near enough to goal, and in the
third quarter he carried the ball over
the line after another mishandled
punt had given his team the ball on
the 4-yard line. The high school has
