THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1910.
DRUBBED 16 TO 6
Rock Island High School Boys
Come to Their Own With
GROVE STARS AT HALF
Larkin Plays Great Game at Qaarter
and Hughes Bolsters Up the
Center of the line.
The Rock Island high school foot
bal team won its f rst game of the year
Saturday afternoon at the expense of
the Kewanee team, the latter having
the short end of a 16 to 6 score. The
locals presented a changed front to
those of the three previous struggles
and the new lineup did the work. It
was Rock Island's game after the first
five minutes of play, as it was seen at
that time that the visitors could not
withstand the furious line plunges and
fast end running of Coach Harmon's
aggregation. Kewanee scored first,
hut it was on a fluke, and after that
rts best chances were smothered up by
the crimson and gold warriors. Lar
kln, at quarter; Grove, at halfback,
where he was playing for the first
time; Hughes, at center, and Behna
mann and Dooley at ends, did the work
for the Rock Island team, although
every man was working hard and get
ting his share of the glory.
Big; Man Whole Team.
For the visitors, Spears, the 230
pound tackle, did nearly all of the
work, both on the defensive and on
the offensive. He is a monstrous boy
who gets around in remarkable man
ner when his size is considered. To
etop a play, he merely had to get In
front of the runner, and the latter was
' usually stopped as though he had but
ted into a stone wall. The work of
the other Kewanee men was consider
ably dimmed by that of their big team
mate, but at that they worked hard
for victory, and it was merely a case
of their being outclassed and out
Kewanee kicked off to Rock Island
to open the game, and the battle start
ed. For a few minutes the play zig
zagged back and forth under the shad
ows of the Rock Island goal, and then
one of Budelier's punts was blocked.
The ball rolled behind the goal line
and Anson of Kewanee fell upon it and
was credited with a touchdown. Spears
kicked goal, and the score was 6 to 0.
Come Bark at Once.
The Rock Island players came back
at once and it required but half a
dozen piays to carry ihe ball over the
goal line after the kickoff. Grove made
the touchdown on a clever cross buck
play, which completely fooled the de
fenders of the goal and allowc:d the
runner to cross the line untouched.
Hughes kicked goal, and the score was
tied. It remained so for the rest of the
first half, although Kewanee made sev
eral desperate attempts to score and
came within several yards of it on two
different occasions. Both times the
work of Hughes prevented the ball
from going over the line.
Early in the second half, after the
ball had been carried to the center of
Ihe field, Behnamann completed the j
distance on a cleverly executed for
ward pass. No chance for kicking goal
was allowed, as the ball was carelessly
touched to the ground before this was j
done and the opportunity to add
point to the total was forfeited.

came a real kick, and the locals got
possession of the ball. Rock Island
kicked right back again, and Behna

had been touched by a Kewanee man,
and fly across the goal line before be

score 10 to 6, and it remained there

Celebrate With Bonfire.
In the evening the rooters of the
local school repaired to the river front
and made merry over their victory. A
huge bonfire was built and songs and
cheers were Indulged In. Most of the
players were required to make short
speeches, and an excellent time was
had. The Davenport high school root
ers were celebrating in a similar fash
ion on the other side of the river and
a number of cheers were exchanged.
Rock Island yelling for Davenport and
the echo coming back from across the

means that Cobb is the champion hit

AND MOLINE LOSES
Team Across River Runs Up Huge
Score on Maqaoketa Clinton De

Davenport's high school football
team found the team at Maquoketa
easy picking Saturday afternoon
pnd when the dust kicked up by the
fast Davenporters had cleared away,
it was found that a score of 83 to 0
had been run up. Davenport out
weighed, outclassed and outplayed
the boys from the smaller town and
Mauuoteka never had a chance. It
was hardly a scrimmage for Coach
Nixon's men, as most of the plays
resulted in touchdowns. End runs,
forward passes and line plunges all
worked with equal precision and ef
fect and it was a walkaway from the
first minute of play.
Moline high school struck a snag
at Clinton and lost the game 22 to
10. The Clinton team clearly out
played the Maroon and White boys
and earned the game. The Iowans'
attack was strong and its defense
was stubborn. Flukes were princi
pally responsible for the touchdowns
made by the Moline players. Fum
bling by both sides was frequent but
in general playing the CUntonltes
had all the better of the argument.

"THE GIRL IN THE KIMONO."
The company which appears at the
Illinois tonight in "The Girl in the
Kiincno" played at Clinton, Iowa,
last Friday. The Herald the follow
ing day devoted a column to a re
view of the performance. Among
other things it said:
" 'The Girl in the Kimono,' under
the personal direction of W. K. Zieg
field, was the attraction at the Clin
ton last evening. It was the bright
est, breeziest, cleverest, prettiest
and withal the most thoroughly en-
joyable thing of the kind that has
been seen in this city for a long time.
These who were fortunate enough
to be present were enthusiastic over
tr.e line of good things presented
and witnessed the end of the play
with much regret. Encore followed
encore from the opening until the
clcse of the entertainment and the
willingness with which the enter
tainers responded clearly establish
ed the fact that there was a spirit
of mutual admiration in existence.
It is to be hoped that Manager Dixon
will be able to secure a return en
gagement of "The Girl In the Ki
mono' so that all the theatregoers
here may have an opportunity to
see it. Willie Dunlay, who appears
as Richard Carter, a bachelor, Is one

dance, and while his voice is a pe
culiar one and grates somewhat on
your nerves at first, you find your
self thoroughly enjoying it before
the end. His song 'Sweetheart from
the Emerald Isle' was one of the
rare treats of the evening. Playing

THE 0HE SAFE BLCCD REMEDY
It is a generally recognized fact
that medicines taken from the botan
ical kingdom are better adapted to
the delicate human system, and safer
ja every way than those composed of
strong mineral mixtures. Amonsr
the very best and safest of vegetable
preparations is S. S. S., a blood med-
cine made entirely of roots, herbs and
barks, in such combination as to
make it the greatest of all blood puri
fiers and the finest of all tonics.
S. S. S. does not contain the least
particle of mineral in any form, and
is an absolutely safe medicine for any
one to use. While purifying the
blood, this great vegetable remedy
builds up every portion of the system.
S. S. S." cures Rheumatism, Catarrh,
Sores and Ulcers, . Skin Diseases,
Scrofula, Constitutional Blood Dis
eases, and all impurities and morbid
conditions of the circulation. It is
perfectly reliable and safe for children;
and little one3 who have been weak
ened with scrofulous affections or
other inherited blood troubles, can
take this mild vegetable remedy with
good results and without the slightest
danger. S. S.S. is unequalled as a
tonic ; it invigorates every portion of
the system, and the healthy blood it
creates largely assists in overcoming
any derangement of the stomach
and digestive system. If you need a
blood medicine you could do no better
than to take S. S. S. It has been in
use for more than forty years and is
still recognized as the best. Book on
the blood free to all who write.

BOTH SIDES KICK GOALS
Moliners Make Two, However, and
Doable Opponents Score Ma
roons Liose In Muscatine.
The Peoria Socials, cracked to be
one of the strongest football teams in
the state, came to Moline yesterday
and met defeat at the hands of the
West Ends after a hard fought, bril
liantly played battle. The visitors, ac
cording to their own figures, outweigh
ed the Moliners 15 pounds to a man,
but this handicap was more than over
come by aggressiveness. The score of
the contest was 6 to 3, all the points
being made by the airline route. In
the first half, Captain Doebbler of the
Socials acknowledged to be one of the
best place kickers in the state, or in
the west for that matter, booted the
ball over the West Ends' goal for the
first three points of the game. The
kick was a beauty, it being from a dis
tance of nearly 40 yards. A second
attempt by Doebbler during this half
was blocked and Rains of the West
Ends carried the ball clear to the fire
yard line before being pulled down.
The Peoria line held valiantly and the
West Ends could not score on three
plays and the ball changed hands Just
as time for the half was called.
Two Drop Klcfca Win.
Although unable to score, the West
Ends continued to be the aggressors
all the time and they repeatedly crawl
ed up to within scoring distance of
their opponents' goal during the sec
ond half. On one of these occasions,
Mac Manus made a drop kick, which
tied the score, 3 to 3. In the second
quarter of the half, the ball was again
brought near to the Socials' goal after
some brilliant runs by Wolfe, -Kipp
and Rains, and once more Mac Manus
kicked a goal, the three points thus
made deciding the contest. Time was
called about three minutes after the
winning score had been made. The
West Ends presented the following

The Rock Island Maroons went to
Muscatine yesterday and played a
game with the Muscatine Athletic Club
team, and were defeated by a score of
27 to 0. The local boys were in a dis
organized condition, due to the with
drawal from the team of a number of
men, who belonged in the lineup. The
team which went down the river to
the Pearl City comprised scarcely half
of the original Maroon team, and they
expected to be beaten. The winners
held an advantage of at least 15
pounds to the man, and they made
good use of this in rushing the ball
over the goal line. They were weak
on open play and the new style of
game, but the Maroons could do noth- i
ing with them. It is understood that
the Maroons will play no more games
this season. The team has met with
nothing but defeat, and the players
have given up the idea of finishing the
season. This leaves Rock Island with
