The football team was given a rest
yesterday and practice may not be re
sumed until Wednesday as there is no
game scheduled for Saturday. Al
though the Moline game was the hard
est of the season, no member of the
team was injured aside from the usual
knocks and bruises. Coach Corneal
was more than pleased with the show
ing of the team and stated that he had
little doulit but what it was one of the
strongest aggregations in the state.
There is a rur.ior out to the effect
that the Danville high school has offer
ed the loca team to play them next
Saturday at Danville, but Manager Hill
says that he has received no such offer.
