THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY. OCTOBER 9, 1911.
PLAYED A GREAT GAME
Hd Better of Their Heavier Oppo
nents All Through Contest but
Were Unable to Score.
With but two minutes to play and
the ball near the center of the field
Iowa City succeeded by a series of
line plunges and an end run in ad
vancing the ball to the 30-yard line
from which point Kenney, Iowa City's
fullback, kicked a beautiful drop
that soared Just within the limit of
the goal posts and gave the Iowans
a rlctory. 3 to 0, over Rock Island
Saturday afternoon in the game
played at Iowa City. From beginning
to end the game was give and take
and though it was played on the
field of the victors, the Islander
squad put up the better game till
near the end when a spurt by the
Iowans won. Iowa City officials state
that the Rock Island aggregation is:
the fastest that they have seen this :
year and that any team tLat can bold !
the Iowa City boys down to that i
score will be in the running till thej
KITTIISEN I STH.
Kittilsen with his long runs, lone
punts and generalship, starred!
throughout the game and carried thej
ball within striking distance of the
Iowa gcal. From the lo-yard line,
Hughes attempted a place kif k. but
the wind carried the ball away from
the goal posts. Hughes played bril-j
liantly at fullback on offense and;
center on defense and he dashed j
through the line and broke up icanyj
cf the Iowa plays before they could i
be started. Mac.Manus and Wright :
featured with good runs and accu-!
rate tackling. It was necessary for'
Tremann to retire from the gam?
early in the second quarter becaiif-e
cf an injured knee. Empke shifted
to tackle and Hinckley was placed at 1
guard. The lines on both sides were
strong and the advantaee was with
the Iowans who outweighed the Is
landers. tiik i

all that these stockholders , desire.
They will stay with the club or they
will leave it, as the new corporation
desires. One thing that they insist

proposition is a fair and square one
and most probably will be taken up

George Damerel, who will be seen
In the leading role in "The Heart
Breakers" at the Illinois Wednesday
night, presented under the manage
ment of Mort H. Singer, was a pro
fessional ball player before he took
up the stage. He was a pitcher in
the Northern league, belonging to
the Grand Forks baseball club and
pitched against Deaccn Phillipi, who
then belonged to Fargo, N. D., and
is now a member of the Pittsburgh
Nationals. Damerel was finally
drafted to the Minneapolis team of
which team he is still a member as
his contract has never been can
celled. He has a locker with the
club. Two years ago after closing a
two years continuous tour with "The
Merry Widow," he joined the Min
neapolis team to try and get into
condition for the coming season. He
practiced with the team every day
and pitched twice against Kansas
City, winning both games. When ask
ed why he gave up baseball as a pro
fession, he said that "He thought
he would become more famous as a
singer and also that the money re
muneration was bigger." Both he
and Phillipi have reached the top of
their profession. Mr. Damerel is an
all around athlete, being a fine swim
mer an ardent fishermen and one of
the best boxers on-the stage.

quarters but failed at all of the goal
kicks. The second score was made by
