SHOWING IS A SURPRISE
Heads Make Only Score on
Fluke Winning Aggregation
BY PAUL 2RUNER.
With a team composed of greetfmen
for the most part, the Rock Island
high school aggregation Saturday
showed its superiority over the old
stars comprising the alumni, outplay
in thfm at every stige of the game
and copping the honors by a 12 7
fcore. The old timers, with a galaxy
of the Btars who have made foot hall
history for the local institution, looked
decidedly formidable on paper and
were touted as the strongest alumni
the necessary confidence to get his
man. His work was a revelation to
the students, and . the consensus oC
opinion seems to be that he has cinch
ed a place with the regulars.
Bieuer at guard did not make a flat
tering showing, owing to Inexperience
more than anything else. Gale Phil
brook, the other guard, got into the
team work and tackled well. On the
defense he charged low and several
times broke through the line for
tackles. Clark at guard held his
man out and punctured the opposition
line on several occasions.
Ackley, at right half, is fast on his
feet, but was unable to get started
because of a bum pair of shoes. He
is a sure man with the ball and it is
believed has a good chance for the
team. Cull- y at end ha;? but little
chance to show himself. He was play
ing against Brough and Budelier, and
the older men boxed him in time after
time. He needs experience and coach
ing. PROSPECTS GOOD.
Of the old men, Criswell, Gaetjer
aad Whisler proved the best ground
gainers. As a ground gainer the high
school squad surpassed the veterans.
During the first half especially, the ball
va3 kept in alumni territory almost
the entire time. The absence of fumb
ling on the part of tiie high school
was extremely flattering. The squad

The alumni's only points were made
on a fluke of the flakiest kind. They
scored in the third quarter, and al
though thy worked ball to a vanMige
point by consistent football, it was i
purely luck that they registered a
touchdown. The vets seemed to brace
considerably at the beginning of the
second half, and began a steady march
down the field, using open plays for
the most part, their forward passes
tie". In them considerable. Several
trick plays were shuffled into the gen
eral repertoire, and in spite of the
fact that the high school twice got
the ball, the younger men were unable
to retain possession. At the 15-yard
line Kittilsen shot a forward pass to
Ikioley. who fumbled when Luby
tackled him. The bull bounced over
the line and Kittilsen fell upon it for
a touchdown. Kittilsen kicked goal,
and that ended the alumni scoring.
From that time until the end of the
rnnie. the play zig-zacgrd from one
end of the field to the other, with
honors about even. In the last quar
ter the high school carried the ball
to the 30-yard line, but lost it on a

With the alumni disposed of, Coach
Corneal is bending every energy to
wards whipping his men into shape for
the first real game of the season next
Saturday, when the strong Iowa City
aggregation will invade Island City
park. There was plenty of gloom
amongst the student body this morn
ing, when the announcement was made
that Captain Larkin would be unable
to play against Iowa City. In fact,
according to present indications, Lar
kin will be out of it for three or four
weeks. The captain was badly injured
in practice a few days ago, receiving
a terrific kick during scrimmage. Al
though his absence will weaken the
team considerably. Coach Corneal Is
fortunate in having a likely bunch of
x candidates to draw upon.
In speaking of the alumni's defeat
Saturday, the coach said this morning:
"I am more than pleased with the
showing made by my men. Consider
ing the fact that most of them were
green, and that it was the first game
635 I of the season, they played a great ar-
.566ticle of footbalL"
It appears at this stage of the con
test that the race for league president
has practically narrowed down to two
Davenport men, Jim Hayes, secretary
of the Davenport club, and Al O'Hern,
sporting editor of the Times.
Jimmy Boyle has withdrawn, or rath
er has branded statements that he was
a candidate as false. Tearney is prac
tically dead and will be fortunate to
secure two votes, both in the south
Hayes is a good baseball man, a
careful business man and a very gen
ial and pleasant man to meet. He is
well qualified for the position in every
way excepting one. He will not re
sign his position as club secretary
to become league president.
Jim is one of the finest fellows in
the world and is known personally by
the writer to be such. He has a
mighty soft job with the Blue Sox,
however, and under no circumstances
could he afford to give it up for $1,300
The Davenport club Is one of the
best money making properties in the
minors and each year cleans up a neat
little pile for its owners, tie Lane
Walsh interests of Davenport. Jim
has an interest in the club and in ad
dition to his share of the profits draws
a fancy salary. He devotes his entire
time to the management of the club.
The question before the league
moguls now is: Do you want a compe
tent baseball man for president who
will continue as secretary of one it
the clubs, or do you want a man who
will be free from any financial inter
est in any club as is O'Hern? Quincy
J. PHIL APPEI,.
With Jimmy Boyle withdrawing
from the race for the Three-I presi
dency, Jim Hayes, not an avowed can
didate, and Al O'Hern refusing to run
in opposition to Jim Hayes, it is a
safe bet that A. R. Tearney will con
tinue to handle the reins. Rock Island
refuses to enter the league as long
as Tearney is president and that will
leave the circuit as it is right now.
Jim Hayes will accept the Three-I
presidency but won't fight for it If
Jim thinks he's going to get by any
Three-Eye meeting without fighting he
certainly figures on coming loaded
with doves of peace. But as long as
Al O'Hern is the dark horse, Daven

iMOLINE TEAM WINS;
SHOWING IS POOR
Perhaps it is just as well for Moline
that no game is scheduled this fall
with Rock Island. Although a trifle
early to get a real line cn any eleven,
the fact remain-: that Moline made a
woefully weak showirg against West
Liberty. Kiel's place kick from the
20-yard line in the last three minutes
of piay, averted a tie score and saved
the game for the Plow City gang. It
The suggestion was made yesterday
that Edward Holland would be an
ideal candidate for president of the
Three-I league. He has had the ex
perience and the ability and if the
magnates are determined to make a
change in executives, they could not
improve upon him. In his new posi
tion as assistant state fire marshal,
he is on the road frequently, taking
in all points in Illinois and this would
enable him to make frequent visits to
the various cities of the circuit. Mr.
Holland is not connected in any way
wtih the Bloomington association and
would be an impartial leader. His four
years' administration was regarded as
one of the most successful and econ
omical in the history of the organisa
tion. Bloomington Pantagraph.

bits for both contesting parties
featured the double bill at Redland
field yesterday. Tinker's trailing
troupe copped the opening melee, 2
to 0, because Gene Packard and his
southpay benders again bewildered the -West
Siders, who struck only three:
blows. With Stack on the peak in

a triple. Ump Brennan stopped pro- -

but three hits as against six by their

on balls, but topped this off with a
