Ana ii was a wise aecisicn. i-iia men
played the Moline team to a standstill
In the first quarter and it ended up
with the ball exactly in the middle of
the field and in Rock Island's possi-s-t.Ion.
After a few plays, at the becin
niug of the second quar'er it was run
to the 25 yard liuo and from that point
ic was booted over the posU for the
frst poi'-us of the game. Kittibsen's
kick was a beauty. Heartened by the
ecore they had secured, the Islanders
exerted Increased energy and within
a hort time had scored a touchdown.
Hughes failed at goal. MarMamis was
chiefly responsible for the scores made,
for his splendid return of punts and
his end runs planted the ball within
striking distance. Willet made several
line plunges that netted good gains
and it was one of these that finally
hauled the ball over the line for the

Dash of form displayed by Moline In
the kicking department. Rock Island
was eomewbat awed by the scoring of
their opponents and again they were
forced back to their line. On a run
from a punt formation Kittilsen waa
downed back of the goal line, thereby
giving Moline two point on a safety.
With the score 8 to 5 agtnst them, they
fought like demons and the Islanders
were unable to stay their onslaught

ROCK ISLAND HIGH SCHOOL FOOIBALL TEAM WHICH TRIUMPHED OVER
MOLINE IN SPECTACULAR GAME AT ISLAND CITY PARK SATURDAY
jH 4 i
When Kittilsen tried to punt out of
danger, the Moline lice smashed
through the Islander Hue and blocked
the kick. Soderstrom grabbed the ball
which was blocked and ran, 15 yards
for a touchdown. Beal kicked goal,
giving Moline 11 to the Islanders' 8.
I5UVDERS COME BACK.
In a few minutes the quarter ended
and the Islanders were in possession
of the ball but 90 yards from goal.
When the last period, commenced, the
locals, determined to win, forged into
the middle of the fie Id. They were i
stopped. They punted. Melin tried to
punt out of danger and his kick was
outside. It was Rock Island's ball on
the 35 yard line. The Islander rooiers
were coaxing, cajoKng and command
ing their team to fight, and fight they
did. Salzmann, Rock Island's big
tackle, was called back and it was but
a Fhort time till he had punched big
i holes in that seemingly impregnable
linp of the Moline team and finally
r-lanted the tall over the line. Huirhes

game a Plow city Ian loosed a pigeon
to which maroon and white colors had
been tied. After circling around the
field once, the plgoon deserted its col

Islanders were a little luckier In their
choice of birds to carry colors. A nice,
kindly looking old owl was released
from Its moorings early in the game,
and because of the light would not fly.
It wa3 tied to a gcal post and there It
held the Islander colors. When dusk
settled over the field the old bird was
in Its element and carried the crimson
and gold high into the air.

MADE TARGET FOR ROCKS
Regular Melee Occurs but Fortu
nately No One Is Injured
Infuriated by the school spirit dis
played by 'about 120 Rock Island high
school pupils and members of the
alumni who went to Moline at a late
hour Saturday night tn a chartered car,
hundreds of Plow City fellows crowd
ed about the local crowd as they left
the car, and within a few minutes
there was one, awful melee ended on
ly after the Islanders were well on
their way back to their own beloved
city. It was a little before 10 o'clock
when the bunch started for Moline.
There had been a big bonfire on the
levee, talks by every member of the
team who hied Into Eight and by the
Hon. G. Washington McCaskrln who
installed himself as master of cere
monies. With fully 300 in line and
with dx able bearers carrying a cas
ket which contained Moline's cham
pionship aspirations the bunch start
ed through Rock Island.
PARA DE THROUGH TOWN.
The Argus office was the first place
visiied and then the crowd filed
through the New Harper. Following a
demonstration there the L. S. Mc
Cabe & Co., and Young & McComVs
department stores were paraded.
The curtain for "Uncle Tom's Cab
in' had just been hoisted at the Illi
nois theatre and the scene in which
Eva eoars heavenward had been
r ached when the bunch tapped on the
doors for admission. Hut Manager
K'ily Klinck preferred that the boys
remain outside for fear of too great a
disturbance and his wishes were read
ily respected. The Empire vaudeville
theatre was visited and its doors were
opened to the bunch by Manager E. T.
Dolly. Quietly the paraders marched
half way down the middle aisle and
lack along the -side. Giving a yell
for the manager, they left. Having ex
hausted their lungs and battle grounds,
Moline was picked as a nice, quiet, lit
tle ground for a walk and half of the
parauers walked and ran to the car
barn, grabbed the only available car
and crew and were off for Moline.
STORM IH SlMtSS t KVTKR.
Entrance 10 the heart of the eastern
i.;:u'e was niauo miust great vocal
noise from the throats of the victors'
rooters. Still bearing the prettily
j.a;rted coffin, the six bearers left the
Tr at the corner o Fifteenth street
' :md Fifth avenue. Hardly had the last
of the invaders left the equipage when
j t ii others were attacked. In a jiffy,
jtl.'o Moline bunch had buried the colIin
' in t !!.. nii'lot of mass of splinters and
cV.'hn.-;. Then they had the temerity
! to bombard the Islanders with all sortri
iff r:ii"siles. One of tue Moline braves
! attacked .n Islander. He had been
snicking a cii-rar, hut it, in company
with a couple of his molars, journeyed
down into his throat as the result of a
well directed blow. Filially the crowd
was back on the car and then aged
e"-s and rather hard bri'.'k bats were
vailed at the ear. The o'-.rtai.is were
pulled down to protect the Islanders
from the flying glass, and after with
standing the shock of bombardment
fcr 15 iniautos. Conductor Hant man
aged to crawl on to the top of the car
."r. l hold the trolley in place. Ho was
the object of several poorly directed
missiles itnd escaped them all. The
motorman was not so fortunate. He
va.-. struck in the face by a Hying brick
!nd stunned. He was barely able to
rink to his post, but thanks to his
work the Islanders finally were able
to escape the Moline crowd.

the police -did little good till the car
was out of sight and then the bunch
subsided. It was the first time that
Invasion of Moline had been made and
the boys intended to have only a peao
able little chat with the defeated
neighbors. They had intended to re
frain from talking of the gime, but of
course their faces showed too much
of the spirit of happiness for the self
control of the Plow City mob. Had
the easterners won, they would have
done the same thing, for they had a
nice little box all fitted for such a
trip, and of course their disappoint
