Rock Island high school football
team showed a. great reversal of form
In its Saturday game at Princeton and
the result was a 13 to 6 victory over
the Princeton high Bchool aggrega
tion. The work of the eleven was as
pronouncedly good Saturday as it was
poor the Saturday before and the vic
tory was a merited one. All the mem
bers of the team and espeHaly
Whlsler and Brough won glory In the
fray which was pronounced one of The
(leanest and prettiest exhibitions ever
Wn at Princeton.
The contest opened with Rock Is
land kicking off. Princeton carried
the ball back to the center of the
field on a succession of line smi.hheg
tut there they were held for downs
and Rock Island got, the ball and be
gan its first offensive play. With ev--ry
man on his toes, the Rock Island
ers swept down the field In a steady
march towards goal. Gains were short
but conslstant and five times the
chains were moved ahead after a first
down had been declared. Finally
when within striking distance of goai,
WhlsUer was called on and he de iver-i-d,
tarrying the ball over Princeton's
line for the first touchdown of the
fame. Glass kicked goal. Store 7

Princeton came back strotiK after
receiving the kick which followed the
touchdown and a succession of plung
es and end rung netted them a touch-'
down not many minutes af'er Kock Is
'and had scored. The attempt at poal
fulled, however, and the score was 7
to 6. After that first quarter. Prince
ton rarely threatened the Rock Island
ers' goal while Coach C'ornea'.'s men
were up and coming all the time, with
the ball In Princeton territory.
Marcus Hroneh pulled the sensa
tional play of t.he sftenioon In the fi
nal quarter, snatching a fumbled ball
on Princeton's .",0 yard line and racing
the length of the field for a touch
down with the Princeton team at his
heels and unab'u to cutch hitn. Try
at goal failed.

Another feature of tjie day was a

Quarterback Mclean of the Princeton
team caught one of Glass' punts and
dodi'd nearly the whole Hock Island
team, getting clear through and he-id-in

SPEED OF SOUND
An Easy Method of Judg.ng the Dm
tance It Travels.
There is an old saying that if yon
can count 'five between the flash and
the thunder you are safe. Modern
science tells us that if you can see toe
flash at all you are safe, because if 1c
struck you you would have no time to
see it. The speed of lightning is abouc
180 times that of sightl
The old idea was that if you could
count five the storm was a mile away,
which was considered a safe distance.
Sound travels at the rate of 1,142 feet
a second, or about a mile in five sec-
onds. In order to count seconds ac-
curately many photographers start by
I saying to themselves: "No one thou
sand, one one thousand, two one thou
sand, three one thousand," etc. This
gives about the right space between
each count of one, two, three, etc., if
you stop at the number of seconds you
want to time. With a little practice
with a watch beside you this is ac
curate up to half a minute or more.
If you see a steam whistle blowing
and note the instant it stops you can
count the seconds until you lose the
sound, and by allowing a fifth of a
mile for each second you can Judge the
distance. The same is true of guns,
or an explosion, or even of hammering
or any loud sounds. New York Press.

The apparently unbeatable Inde
pendents added another scalp to their
belt yesterday afternoon when they
walloped the Moline West Ends 53 to
at Island City park before the big
gest crowd of the year. The Rock Is
land team showed up to fine advantage,
being able to get away with most of
the plays they used and exhibiting de

and the others might Just as well be
mentioned, for not a man but what
played good balL
The Mollners, while outweighed and
outplayed, put up a scrappy contest
and made it interesting for the win
ners during the entire first half, but
in the second session, strength and
weight began to tell, and it was simply
a procession to goal whenever the In
dependents got the ball.
TWO PRETTY DROP KICKS.
Moline kicked off to the Independ
ents to start the game and the local
team at once showed its offensive
ability by carrying the ball to within
striking distance of their opponents'
goal. There they were held, however,
and on a fourth down, with five yards
to go, MacManus dropped back and
booted a pretty drop kick between the
posts, making the score 3 to 0. Sev'
eral minutes later he duplicated the
trick, making the score 6 to 0. That
was all that could be made in the first
ni:;i-v in the second,
The real work of the team began in
the second quarter. A few minutes af
ter it started MacManus punted and
Quarterback Anderson got the ball
within a yard of his own goal line. He
was tackled and hurled back and the
play resulted in a safety with two
points for the Independents. A few
minutes later Rock Island began an ir
resistible march for a touchdown and
Art Salzmann went over on a fierce
line pluijge with the first touchdown.
Before the half was ended another was
scored and the count was 20 to 0, both
tries at goal having been missed.
The second half was a walkaway for
the Independents, who were rarely
stopped after getting possession of
the ball. Line plunging by Salzmann
and Robb, end running by Davenport,
Dooley and MacManus, and forward
passes and double passes in which
Roy Salzmann and Swanson at tackle
and Dooley, Murphy and Behnamann
at end figured, supplied thrills to the
one-sided contest. Following is the

LAW NHAI.ES ARE WINNERS.
A curtain raiser to the main game
was played by the Lawndales and

team won by a 7 to 6 score. Both
teams were hindered by the crowd
but they put up an interesting and
very close contest nevertheless.

Timidity, shyness and self conscious

New York, Nov. 11. The national
Catholic theatre movement is rapidly
taking definite' shape. With the per
sonal indorsement of Cardinal Farley
and in accordance with the papal bull
ot Pius X. fo the daughters of the
faith. Miss Eliza O'B. Lu in in is, the
founder of the movement, will send
cut tomorrow to the' heirarchy of the
United States and Canada an outline
ot the plan of organization.
Active cooperation upon the part
of cardinals, archbishops and bishops
with the laity of their respective dio
ceses is asked in this concerted ef
fort to bring all classes, irrespective
of creed, into a national union for the
eradication of immoral drama from
the America stage.
Cardinal Gibbons, Baltimore; Car
dial O'Connell, Boston; Archbishop
Riordan, San Francisco; the bishops
of Newark, Sioux City, Iowa, Rich
mond and Bismarck, N. D., have as
sured the cardinal of New York of
tl elr readiness to further the project.
Cardinal Farley upon his return
next week from the Pacific coast is
expected to announce the personnel
oC the national and local committees.
"National Catholic influence,"" de
clsres the official plan of organiza
tion, "must be concentrated upon
practical demonstration in New Y'ork,
vhile foundation is being laid at the
s.'ime time in every city for local sup
port of reputable plays. Success in
New Y'ork will be repeated in every
other city; plays denounced in New
York will find no audience elsewhere."'
The plan of organization, as official
ly outlined, provides that a national
committee shall invite the formation
in each city of a Catholic civic com
mittee under the supervision of its
bishop. The civic committee in each
city shall form subcommittees in each
The subcommittee, each supervised
by its pastor, shall cover a special
field, calling social meetings for dis- i
cussion among their own people and :
f.ainlug the cooperation of all classes
in their district. Each parish shall 1
thus have individual representation ,
through its civic committee in the na
tional committee In New Y'ork and
shall be credited with the sum of all '
financial offerings from its people.
The opening of a theatre under ,
Catholic supervision, the clergy is
likewise informed, does not indicate
the immediate erection of a theatre
building. Managers will find it to
their financial profit to present ap- j
proved plays if indorsement and sup-
port are warranted.
Nor is the undertaking wholly de- j
pendent on financial support. It is ;
advisable, however, that each city j
should offer its assistance to tlTe na-,
tional committee. j
Cardinal Gibbons assures the card!-1
nal of New Y'ork that in trying to up-;
lift the moral tone of our plays be has
Lis hearty support.
