Trouble Between Bakers and
Workmen About Over.
Leavenworth Breal Makers Win
a Long Struggle.
Big Demand for Union Bread a
Largs Factor in Fight.
One of Largest Houses in the
City Surrenders.
Leavenworth, Kan, Nov. 2. The
union bakers won a signal success
Saturday when an agreement was
signed up between Ed Stewart and the
striking bakers. The signing of the
contract concedes to the strikers ev
ery concession asked for. A ten hour
day, day work, and recognition of the
A month ago Herman Rosa,' the na
tional organizer, came to Leaven
worth and former a union among the
bakers. Demands were made upon the
bakery owners for daylight work, ten
hour shifts, the recognition of the
union and extra pay for overtime.
Conference after conference was
held but to no avail, as all the master
' bakers were determined to stand pat.
Refusal to recognize the union was
the principal point of difference. An
agreement was reached between the
master bakers that no concession
should be given- to the union.
Two of the bakery owners hired
four of the striking bakers who had
withdrawn from this union. This ac
tion was in violation of the agreement
entered Into between the master bak
ers and the result was the breaking
of the compact and signing of the
agreement by Mr. Stewart.
Numerous efforts were made to
bring about an arbitration of the af
fair, hut the master baker9 rejected
the advancements. The union bakers
then stated their esse to the Trades
and Labor council. The council agreed
to stand back of the strikers and ac
cord them their support In any man
ner. An order was sent by the union
bakers to Kansas City for union
bread. The various labor councils In
structed their members to use nothing
but union bread.
The result of this order was that
several merchants in town purchased
the Kansas City bread In order to ac
commodate tho union trade. The
strikers worked up a considerable
trade amounting to seven or eight
hundred loaves a day.
A proposition was on foot to start
a new union bakery In Leavenworth
at the old Schmidt property at Sev
enth and Osage streets. At this stage
of the controversy the grievance com
mittee began to do some effective
work. The committee took the mat
ter up and going to each master bak
er individually, an effort was made to
explain the situation In such a man
ner that the controversy could be set
tled. This will possibly settle the diffi
culty as all union bakers will be em
ployed In some way about the Stewart
bakery. "Mr. Stewart will employ all
his boys back," said William Hllde
brandt. "and all the union boys will
be employed either in the shop or on
the wagons."

Drake University Defeats Wash
burn in Football.
One Lone Touchdown Made by
the Visitors.
Referee Refused to Allow Wash
burn's Score.
Game a Brilliant and Hard
Fought Contest.
By resorting almost entirely to old
style football, the Drake team suc
ceeded in making one lone touchdown
on the Washburn eleven Saturday
afternoon and won the game by a
score of 6 to 0. The Washburn team
although defeated had to contend with
heavy odds and put up a brilliant
game. The Drake team was the heavi
est team seen here yet this season, out
weighing the Blue eleven fully ten
pounds to the man.
The secret of the defeat of the local
collegians can be wholly attributed to
the poor defense of the Washburn
team and the numerous holes ia the
line. The Blue line weakened and
leaked with regularity, although when
the visitors had the ball within the
shadow of the goal posts the locals
three times rallied and put up a
noble defense. With two or three of
the holes in the line plugged up, a
different story might have been chron
icled. The Washburn line failed to
charge and one or two of the members
of the line played too much of the
time with "their manl- forms erect."
The Drake team excelled the -locals
in many of the important points of the
game. The work of their ends was
great. The returning of punts put the
Washburn team on the defensive dur
ing the greater portion of the game.
And their terrific line smashes were
the best seen in Topeka since the days
of the old game, when this was the
chief scoring vehicle, and only five
yards were required.
In the line smashimr the work of
Captain McCoy for the Hawkeyes, and
of Fullback Purdy featured, although
the two tackles. Herrlck and Sickel
were close seconds. These four gain
ed the most of the ground for the
But the work of Van Meter, the
stocky little quarterback of the lowans
was great, especially in his return of
punts. Frequently he returned the
punts for such gains that the Blue lost
in the punting.
Van Meter received some valuable
assistance from the Drake ends which
enabled him to make good returns.
The ends would get down the field and
dispose of f- couple of the Blue men
and then form Interference which was
hard to penetrate.
The only score of the game came in
the middle of the second half. Up until
that time the visiting team played the
part of aggressors. But the touch
down of the Drake team seemed to
have gingered the Washburn for dur
ing the remainder- of the game all the
play was in Drake-territory.

The Washburn team suffered the
most from penalties, several of fifteen
yards being assessed against the" Blue

levied against the visitors.
But despite the work or tne oniciais,
the visitors deserved to win as they
were the aggressors three-fourths of

the most ground. And the Washburn
fans, co-eds and followers are not
blaming the officials, but are taking
their defeat in true sportsmanlike
style, which Is much to their credit.
The work of the two teams on the
whole was clean cut and very little
dirty work was apparent on either
side. Washburn was punished for

visitors seemed immune from penal

stellar game Ma the defense. --His
punting was effective, and he surpass
ed his rival, McCoy, in kicking. Not
once did Washburn's sturdy quarter
back have a kick blocked. He was de
liberate and always managed to punt
where the Hawkeyes were not. Mc
Coy had three punts blocked and once
an attempt to drop kick a field goal
went wild. McCoy's reputation as a
kicker did not receive any boosting in
this game.
Outside the forward - pass, Wash
burn had no ground gaining plays,
the strong defense of the Drake team
being too much for the line bucking of
the Blue. . Brethour occasionally
smashed through for good gains, but
not often enough for Washburn to use
this method of ground gaining. Mc
.Vey and Smiley , gained the ground on
the forward passes, and both returned
punts with some success.
On the defense, Whitney and
Larimer did the best work for the lo
cals. Whitney was in every play and
blocked many of the mass formations
of the lowans, and Larimer made
some vicious flying tackles. Brethour's
defense is also worthy of mention, for
It was no other than "Shag" who
broke up a play near the end of the
first half when the ball was held al
most within a hair's breadth on the
goal line. .
There were but two changes In the
line-up during the entire game. In
the second half Williams went In at
end for Foster and the defensive work
of the team was improved by the
change. Witter, the Drake left guard,
retired In favor of Hubbard during
the second half.
It was a great day for football. The

playing. The field was soft which
made the playing faster and lessened

time was taken out for any of the
And the best part of the whole
game was that there were no sore
spots left after the conflict was over!
The players on both teams were in
good spirits and the coaches as well.
Coach Weede said after the game:
"It was a hard game to lose but we
don't feel a bit discouraged. We
were up against a hard proposition
and the best team won."
- "We considered Washburn a worthy
opponent," said Coach Griffith of the
Drake team, "and we found that her
strength was not over estimated. It
was a hard fought game, but we think
we outplayed the Washburn team,
and that the best team won. Yes I
think the score represented the mer
its of the two teams."
The Game in Detail.
The first half was as interesting an
exhibition of football as one ever
sees. There was not a single moment
of time taken out during the twenty
five minutes of play, and the playing
was so close and interesting that the
spectators were slow to realize that
the half was over. Washburn won
the toss and Hope, who acted as cap
tain, chose to defend the south goal.
McVey received the klckoff but was
downed in Washburn territory. The
ball was worked up and down the
field and a couple of exchanges of
punts followed by a series of line
bucks, In which Drake twice made
first downs on straight football,
brought the ball to the Washburn
twenty-five yard line in Drake's
possession. Here McCoy tried to drop
kick a goal but the ball went very
Hope punted out from the twenty
yard line and after an exchange of
punts and a snort series of mass
plays, Drake tried a forward pass
but the ball struck the ground. Mc
Vey then made twelve yards on a pass,
but Drake held and took the ball.
McCoy punted to Smiley, who fum
bled and Drake took the ball on the
twenty-yard line. McCoy after a
couple of ineffective assaults on the
Washburn line, tried another drop
kick which was blocked by Whitney
shoving one of the Drake men into the
ball. Washburn took the ball but a
fumble lost- seven yards and Hope
was forced to punt the ball going out
side on the thirty-five yard line.
Drake smashed the line hard but
Templeton broke up a play and Mc
Coy was forced to punt. Van Meter
made a good return and Purdy
and McCoy smashed through the
Washburn line for steady gains
bringing the ball to the seven yard
line. Drake failed to gain on the
first down, but on the second down
Herrlck carried it to the two-yard
line, when Purdy took the ball with
in an inch or two of the Washburn
goal line and lost It on downs. Hope
kicked out, but Van Meter returned
the ball to the eighteen yard line.
The half ended with the ball eight
yards from the Washburn goal line
and in Drake's possession.
Hope kicked off to Herrick at the
beginning of the second half and the
ball was returned to the center of the
field. Both sides were forced to punt
and the exchanges of punts made the
play about even. A fumble by Wash
burn lost the ball near the center of
the field and the Drake team started
with renewed efforts for Washburn's
goal line. The locals failed to hold
until the ten yard line was reached
and Hope punted. Van Meter ran .the
ball back to the fifteen yard line.
Washburn held at this Juncture and
Hope again punted. This time Mc
Coy received the punt and returned
the ball to the seventeen-yard line.
McCoy tried to drop kick here but
Whitney broke through and blocked
the punt. Washburn was un
fortunate in this play however as the
Drake team recovered the ball. Mc
Coy then shot, through the center of
the line on a fake end play and
scored the only touchdown of the
game He also kicked goal making
the score 6 to 0.
Being scored upon, however, much to
Washburn's credit, did not dishearten
the Blue a bit, but only served to make
them play the harder. With the ball
in the center of the field soon after the
klckoff, a forward pass. Hope to Smi
ley, carried the ball to the Drake 20
yard line. Another pass advanced the
ball 10 yards, putting it on the 10 yard
line. Brethour smashed the line for a
couple of short gains, and Smiley again
took the forward pass, crossing the goal
line on the play. After considerable el
oquence on the part of the different
players, including Hope, Referee Mas
ker refused to allow the touchdown on
the grounds that the ball did not cross
the line, the required five yards to the
side of center.
Drake took the ball and McCoy punt
ed out of danger. A couple of passes
by McVey and Smiley again brought
the ball to the 25 yard line but there
Drake held. After an exchange of
punts and a few ineffectual scrimmages
the half ended with the ball in the
possession of Washburn on the Drake
60 yard line. t

The Hawkeyes From Iowa Beaten in an
11 to 8 Game.
Iowa City, la., Nov. 2. The Nebraska
Cornhuskers humbled the Iowa Hawk
eyes Saturday in one of the most spec
tacular and also one of the most bitter
ly contested gridiron battles ever
waged on Iowa field. The final score
was 11 to 8. The Cornhuskers grasped
the laurels of victory by reason of the
driving power of their attack. Their
offense was a powerful affair and the
Hawkeyes, while waging a valiant re
sistance, could not stay Nebraska's ad
vance. The defense of the Cornhuskers
was equally virile and Iowa, while
making many superb gains, could not
advance consistently and was com
pelled to devote Its efforts in the scor
lln.toKal kicks from the field.
TJI . . .the Hawkeyes booted the ball
Nebraska goal posts, thereby
netting eight points. Nebraska's
scores resulted from two driving touch
downs, the Cornhuskers working their
way down the field in a series of re
sistless marches for the Iowa goal.
, ,elevens P,ayei aggressive
football, mingling end runs and line
smashes with a clever use of the for
ward pass. Many long gains were
made by resorting to the latter play.
Much of Nebraska's success was due to
the onside kick. Frequently the Corn
huskers booted the ball into Iowa ter
ritory and regained the oval in the gen
eral scramble for its possession. Cha
loupka was the Cornhuskers most sen
sational performer. Whenever Ne
braska needed distance, the ponderous
Cornhusker tackle was given the ball
for a smash through the Iowa line. On
the defense, Chaloupka broke up many
of the Hawkeye's plays and was down
the field on punts with the ends to
smother the Iowa runner in a sensa
tional tackle.
Captain Kirk was the mainstay of the
Hawkeyes, and played a game of rare
brilliance. His returns of punts often
bewildered the Nebraska tacklers, and
his propelling of the forward pass was
almost faultless in its accuracy. His
clever drop kick from the field gave the
Hawkeyes their first score, and he
missed one other kick only by the nar
rowest of margins. During the second
half the Iowa captain was injured by
one of Chaloupka's fierce tackles, and
Kirk was carried sobbing from the
field. Iowa's second field goal was ex
ecuted during the final half by Hyland.
A second effort by Hyland was blocked
by Chaloupka and From, and a daz
zling end sprint by Birkner carried the
ball to the middle of the field, where the
battle ended with the Cornhuskers in
possession of the ball. - -
Fainnount 50, Drury 0.
Wichita, Kan., Nov. 2. Fairmount
won from Drury college Saturday by a
score of 50 to 0. Not once did Drury
threaten to score, and the Fairmount
men played about as they pleased. But
once in the game did Drury make its
first down, and that was close to the
end of the last half.
Fairmount did almost all of its work
by end runs and the forward pas.
White, J. Plank and G. Solter got
around the ends with ease. Twice did
White make touchdowns after fifty
yard runs. At the end of the first half
the score stood 27 to 0, and it was evi
dent that Fairmount could pile it much
higher. Bates, who is the star player
for Fairmount, left the game in the
second half, and Martin went in. J.
Plank did good work at kicking goals,
five of them. Wickham, center for
Drury, played the game with that team
and proved himself a star. Drury con
tinually bucked the Fairmount line,
but could do nothing with it, as Fair
mount was heavier. The Springfield
team attempted the forward pass bu
few times, and could not make it work.
Andrews of Drury and Thayer of Fair
mount were put out of the game for
fighting. Steinmetz and Jones took
their places. - -

cross the goal of their rivals. The
score of 29 to 0 Is identical with that of
the first victory of Chicago against
Minnesota in 1899. It also is the decid
ing game of the tie between the teams
as the result of the games of 1906-7, the
rivals having failed to clash In the five
years preceding 1906. Tale veterans
also decided a friendly rivalry when
Coach Stagg's machine beat down and
overrun the formation prepared by
Coach Williams and his assistants,
Shevlin and Hefflefinger, all one time
stars of the Tale gridiron.
Minesota's forward passes were in
frequent and usually unsuccessful. The
Chicago line withstood the most de
termined charges of their opponents
and protected by the best interference
Chicago has shown In any of its games
Steffen and Page tore through the Min
nesota field repeatedly for spectacular
gains and touchdowns. Only twice did
there seem a probability of Minnesota
scoring. In the first half a desperate
series of rushes brought the ball to
Chicago's 2-yard line but the Maroon
line held and Steffen secured the baO
and punted it out of danger.

St. Marys, Kan., Nov. 2. The Has
kell Indians defeated St. Marys here
Saturday by the score of 16 to 0.
The Indians' speed was a revelation
and St. Marys did not seem able to
stop it. The weather was ideal for
football and a fast game resulted.
Both teams put up a beautiful and va
riegated article of football. Time after
time a redskin would be tackled only
to be up and off again and it was this
that helped materially to win for
them. Coach Kent has a fine team.
The Indians first score resulted from
a forward pass early in the first half,
Kalamma and Delorla performing, r
The second half was characterized
by brilliant - play, Haskell scoring
twice on straight football. Means and
Roberts taking the honors. Beakey"s
foot was a great factor in this half,
a couple of long punts bringing the
crowd to their feet. Island was tak
en out in the first half on account of
an injury. Means, Kalamma and Nev

Annapolis. Md.. Nov. 2. On a fast grid
iron Saturday the Indians from Carlisle
administered tneir rirst defeat ot the mid
shipmen. The final score was Carlisle 16,
Navy 6. For the first half the middies
had the better of it until Just before time
was called. Probably the midshipmen's
best chance for a score came almost im
mediately after the contest onened. but
they failed to make it, and Just as the half
was arawing io a close Carlisle Degan
the series of four scores, all of them
placement goals beautifully- made by
Balentl, that made up Carlisle's total of
16. Navy was not discouraged, and went
back to the second half, with the cheering
knowledge that in it she would have
the advantage of a favoring wind for
Dalton's kicks. The very first of these,
however, went sailing out of bounds, and
Navy was again on the defensive. The de
fense did no good against the whirlwind
attacK or tne Indians, and the midship
men were Quickly in dire straits to defend
their goal. It was Just after Balentl made
his third placement roal that the miriahin-
men made their score. Determined to
stave off a "whitewash," the Navy play
ers went in literally to annihilate their
visitors. Line plunges finally drove Rich
ardson over for the blue and gold's only
