IN CLOSE BATTLE
PAYS FOR A PLANT
The New Football Rules Seem to be as Effective as the Old
THE ROCK lb'LAXI3 AKGT7S, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1910.
Expected That West Ends and
Illini Game Will Be Hardest
, Fought of Year.
ARE EVENLY. BALANCED
i Difference of But Five Pounds in the
Weight Totals of Both Elevens
t "What Is expected to be the fiercest!
football battle of the year Is to take
place tomorrow afternoon at Athletic
park In Moline when th9 West Ends,
present state champions, meet the Il
lini club in the first of their two en
gagements. The' teams appear to be
as evenly matched as any two could
be. The . total weight of the Illini
players is but five pounds more than
the total of the "West Ends and this
weight 1b very evenly distributed.
The "dope is that the Illini have the
stronger individual players, while the
"West Ends have the advantage of hav
ing played together longer. The fact
that .the Illini have played but one
game, and that an easy one, Is said
to be against them, as their coach has
had no opportunity to strengthen the
weak points which usually are found
In hard games. This is offset, how
ever, by the fact that within the last
two weeks the West Ends have played
two of the stiffest aggregations in the
state and some of the players are not
in the best of condition, while the II
llni are in fine fettle.
, mini Are Determined.
! The members of the Illini club are
determined to win the game, in fact
the team was organized with that end
In view. The team is made up of for
mer'VEast End players and men who
were stars in their !high school days.
Individually there is little doubt as to
their having it on the West Enders
and yet the consensus of opinion is
that the game will be (extremely close
and hard fought at every stage. In
Hartzell, the Illini have a kicker of
great ability, both as a punter and as
a drop kicker. His teammates expect
his , toe to win the game by the air
route if all other means fall. The
West Ends have excellent punters in
both Wolfe and Johnson, but neither
has done much in the drop or place

Tean Vincent Talks of School Ath
letics at Meeting of N'oithern
La Salle, 111., Oct. 29. Dean
George E. Vincent of the University
of Chicago discussed athletics in
schools before yesterday's session of
the Northern Illinois Teachers' asso
elation. He said that what was need
ed was more sportsmen rather than
"This type known as the 'sport,
said Professor Vincent, "is the curse
of athletics, and there is a great mor
al danger that the high school ath
letics become a detriment. We should
teach our boys and girls the differ
ence between the true sportsman, the
man who is fair and is out to win
if his side is the better, and the
'sport who wants to win at all haz
ards and will resort to devious tricks
to accomplish his purpose.

among the greatest elements in the
development of the child's mind.

MILDRED HOLLAND SUNDAY.
Mildred Holland breaks away from
tiaras, swords, court wigs and gor
geous costuming of the by-gone days,
and will tomorrow, matinee and even-
her matinpp performance of "The
ing, present at the Illinois theatre a
modern play, "The Provider," by Mat
thew Barry. She is supported by an
excellent company, some of whom ap
peared with her in New York city
when the play was presented there.
"The Provider" is simple in its treat
ment of the theme of the two men
who love the one woman. The pow
erful banker and the struggling note
teller, are the rivals. Into the clutch
es of the banker falls the assistant,
who steals and asks for mercy. He
goes back to the bank, the tool of the
banker, to be used to help him win
the girl and send the other man to
prison. The woman, for her love of
the other man, makes the sacrifice.
Conventional? Yes, but Barry makes
this girl "The Provider" of the family,
a splendid, strong, sincere character.
The father is a genteel drunkard; the
mother is a silly butterfly of society,
socially ambitious, but without means,
and anxious to sell both her daughters
and their happiness to the highest bid
der. The younger .girl, a foolish, reck-1
less spendthrift, is of little help. Three
stick together to fight the battle for
home. At the end, the school prin
cipal, the provider, and the younger
brother are rejoined by the mother,
and so, when all have paid the price
demanded, a happy household results
for the other man has got back from
a prison cell in time to take the girl
in his arms.
"THE GIRL IN THE TAXI."
"The Girl in the Taxi" arrived to
day, and she will disport ,herself at
the Barrymore theatre this evening.
She will be at the Grand In afternoon
and evening performances tomorrow.
WEEK OF MESMERISM.
The Illinois theatre is to have a
week of mesmerism furnished by Dr.
Herbert To. Flint and his associates,
who will give their opening perform
ance next Monday evening.
"THE THIRD DEGREE."
"The Third Degree," Charles Klein's
graphic drama, will be seen at the
Grand next Thursday. , The success
of the play has been most startling,
and it is believed that the present
condition in many police circles, has
had an effective bearing on the in
terest of the general public as well
as those who are regular theatre pa
trons. Miss Sarah Padden continues

HOW MRS. EDESON HELPS HUS
"To 6pend four-fifths of the time in
a tailor-made suit, to travel all over
the country in a series of one-night
stands to one-week stands, to put up
with all of the discomforts and incon
veniences of an actress on tour with
out the compensation of applause, to
be of the stage, but not on It, is my
life; but it Is the happiest one in the
world." says Mrs. Robert Edeson, in
the "New Idea Woman's Magazine"
for November.- "I am Robert Edeson's
wife, and nothing else makes any dif
ference. Long, tiresome railroad jour
neys are mere pleasure trips. I expe
lence the joy of living just as keenly in
a monotonous round of hotels as in
my own home, and the applause that
Mr. Edeson receives is far dearer to
me than if I .were winning it myself.
I am not only with him on the road,
but I never miss a night at the thea
tre, no matter whst the weather might
be. Every evening I go with him and
stay in his dressingroom until the play
is over. As the wife of a star, pre
sumably straight from New York, it
is a more or less trying experience.
For fne thing, all the women expect
rae to be a perfect fashion plate, and
I am not. I love pretty clothes and
take no end of pleasure in planning
my gowns, but by the time they have
been in and out of trunks for weeks
and weeks. I feel that they are hardly
presentable, much less a little ahead
of the procession, as stage frocks are.
Of course, all of the little matinee
girls and a great many older ones, are
crazy about Mr. Edeson, as they are
about anv matinee Idol, but' I am
never jealous, not the least bit. I am
so absolutely sure that I mean every
thing in the world to him that the at
tentions of other women just amuse
me. In fact, I rather like it. I do not
blame them at all. I would far rather
be Mrs. Robert Edeson of 'Strongheart
House' than of the stage and foot
lights, even though I am inordinately
proud of my husband.. The only times
that I allow that pride to run away
with me entirely is on first nights,
when I always have a box, and, ner
vous as I am about critics and all of
the other things that may interfere
with the success of the play, I almost
pass away with joy when I hear some
one say: 'That's his wife.'"

Pittsburg, Pa., Oct. 29. Recrea
tion park, the scene of, many a hard
fought 'baseball game in the early
90's, when the grounds were used
by the National "league team, during
the war between the National and
the players leagues, has been sold
to a representative of f the outlaw
baseball league, which is now being
organized by D. A. Fletcher.
A member of the United States

grounds had been purchased by a

were being bought for the new base

other American association cities.
He also declared the American asso

financial support to the new league.
The purchase of the park includes
several dwelling houses bordering on
the property and it was ascertained
the lessees of these houses had been
ordered to vacate by Jan. 1. The
price Is said to be approximately
Will Have Room.
Recreation park can be made into
a first class ball field of about the
same dimensions as Forbes field.
With the acquisition of the land on
which the dwellings now stand, there
will be plenty of room to build com

At the present time an athletic

Friday evening, Nov. 4, there will be
an exhibition of the fine points of the
art of wrestling at the Y. M. C. A.
gymnasium. The exhibition which is
not a match, will take place between
John Voss, the local favorite of the
trl-cities, and William Gable, of the
local police force. This exhibition
marks the starting of the wrestling
and boxing classes for seniors of the
association, the first class session be
ing held at 9 o'clock for the boxing
and at 9:30 for the wrestling Monday
There will also be an indoor base
ball game between members of the
senior gymnasium class and a team
from the ord;r of Moose.
The proceeds of the seat sale will
be used for buying new gymnasium
mats, a thing greatly needed by" the
Y. M. C. A. for their gymnasium equip

REVIVE EARNED RUNS
Plans Considered by Big Leajrueff to
Increase Interest in Xational
Chicago, Oct. 29. Reduction of
the number of called balls entitling
a batsman to first base from four
balls to three and a revival of the
earned run are among the changes
being considered for the betterment
of baseball before another season
That the earned run will be re
stored to official good standing as
a partial means of determimnc the
relative standing of pitchers in the
American league Is practically as
sured. Whether or not it is brought
back to life in the National and other
organizations, the officials of the
American league will make the revTv-
al and can do so single handed Be
cause it is a matter affecting the of
ficial scoring and tabulation of
pitchers' records, but not the play
The reduction of the amount of
waiting a batsman will have to do to
get a base on balls is a different prop
osition, as it will require concurrent
action by" both major leagues. As it
has strong advocates in the ranks of
both majors and was originally a
National league proposal it stands a
good chance of adoption, provided
the club owners decide the time is
ripe for so radical a change.
