A Sunday With the Scotch at Maple Hill
Tom Powell, Topeka business man
and sportsman, is going to try to in
troduce the English-Scotch game o
soccer In this section of the country.
He expects to put on a soccer same
in Topeka In the near future. Tom's
Top-ska team, composed of descend
ants cf the ir habitants of the English
shirs an& the scotch gien, went up
to Maple Hill last Sunday and was
smeared all over a forty acre lot by
eleven husky Highlanders of that vi
cinity. But Powell is not discouraged.
He proposes to patch up the holes in

Silver Lake to Rossville is a grand
road. It had rained a few days be-!

and his feats of strength and his good
nature and his skill as a soccer player,
but if I do I will never tell about that
Remember that in soccer the play
ers cannot touch the ball with their
hands. They must kick it. They can
use their heads or their bodies to stop
the ball or push it along but the use
of hands means a penalty. A goal is
kicked between the goal posts and un
der not over the bar. A goal counts a
point. At the kicnoff the teams lined
up not unlike a football match. It
looked mighty fine. Some' one kicked
the ball about a mile and then the 22
players came together and every one
of them kicked at-the ball at onci
. Made of Stern Staff.
I thought that at least ten men
would be laid out in the first onset.
But it was not so. They were made of
stern staff, these players. A kick en
the knee or the shoulder or the shin
they di.i not count for a fly. A man

Dr. Silverthorne patch up this player
and some seven others who had been
kicked. But the man got up like a
panther and chased down the field
after the ball.
It was a great game. Not a doubt
of it. Those players kicked that ball
to the four winds of heaven and the
ways of the waters of the sea. They
blocked it with their heads as cleverly
s.s a juggler balances his properties.
The forwards would "dribble" it down
the' field with his feet Just ahead of
pursuing players, guiding it as ten

walk. It was art. And then would the writer Judges that these were the

Topeka Players Were Game.
The light Topeka forwards played
a fast clever game and held their own
most of the time with the heavier
Maple Hilr men but in the back field
where "Stonewall" Jackson and Reid
and Warren played for Maple Hill
there was no comparison in the play
of the opposing teams. The three
Maple Hill Scots guarded the goal like
a bulldog watching a baby buggy
Jackson stood like a tree. Reid had
the displacement of a battleship.
Warren covered the ground like a crop
The Topeka back field men were
game, all right, but they did not have
the tonnage. When the Maple Hill
team came down the field toward th'e
goal It was the tide coming up the
firth of Solway. When the Topeka for
wards, by speed and cleverness got the
ball started dawn towards the Maple
Hill goal and It looked like a point
for sure, there would be this man Reid
plowing his way through the whole
team to kick the ball away: or Jack
son in imitation of a sixteen cylinder
seven ton auto track to kick the bail
still further away. No one knows how
far Jackson can kick a soccer ball.
He don't knew himself. Jimmie Fyfe
declares that the actual measured dis
tance is a mile and three-quarters, bat
Fyfe may be mistaken.
Kicking a "Human" Goal.
The Topeka goal keeper had more
troubles in the game than a bear in a
bee yard. Three times a goal was
kicked on him, the ball passing by in
a twisting carve like a brown streak.
Then finally he caught one of these
kicks and hugged the ball to his- breast
in- triumph. Down on him came Stone
wall Jackson and Reid and three more
of the glegfoot Maple Hill clan. The
goal keeper went down in a heap un
der the rush ana then three eager
Scots lifted three large feet at one
time and kicked that unfortunate goal
keeper through his own goal posts.
He hang to the ball, so of coarse the
count went down for a goal for Maple
Hill. A Scotchman among the rooters
on the sidelines' swore Joyously in the
Gaelic tongue and bore witness to the
blue skies above him that never dur
ing 25 years devoted to close attention
to the great game of soccer had he
ever seen a goal kicked Just that way
The Topeka goal keeper got up with
the worst grouch this side of the Bal
kan war zone. But he was game to
the core. It was part of the game
of his fathers. He rubbed his shoul
der, -his stomach and his side. From
these manifestations of interest In pain

had been kicked with shoes. In the
scrimmage he was kicked three times
at once and the places were hard to
pick, either by eye or by the camera.
But this goal keeper played out the
game. He limped on one leg and one
shoulder drooped a little, but he
played with gameness and understand
ing to the finish. .
A. Famous Player Still
There was a Maple Hill player, one
of the forwards.. A slim, keen Scot,
with a face like a hawk, hair gray as
a badger and standing up like a shock.
He was a bearcat to follow the ball
He cculd turn on his toe like a cork
scrsw and he kicked in canning fash
ion from every angle known to the
compass. It is said that he was a fa
mous player years ago in Scotland. He
is a famous player still in the eyes of
one Topeka newspaper man.
They finished the game at 4 o'clock.
The Scotch of Maple Hill were hap
py. The Topeka players, though
beaten, had no cause to feel bad. The
canny rooters at the ringside gava
them commendation for having done
well against odds. That Maple Hill
team ought to compete with any class
in the west.
Some on took a little boy in kilties

pony and then they set Tom Powell,
who had refereed the match, on top

Dr. "Jimmy the Official Photographer
Dr. "Jimmy climbed on top of the
crank to start the car. Keilam light
ed the starting gear with a match and
we were off for home. It was a
dandy trip. Of coarse there were a
few Httle disappointments, bat they
did not count in the final audit of
the books. Dr. "Jimmy, be It known,
was the official photographer of the
expedition. But he knows more
about lancets and pills than he does
lenses and focuses. His pictures
showed tap like patches of brown on
a fevered brain. That is. some of
them did. Others looked as though
they had been taken from a distance
as far as "Stonewall Jackson can

. Keilam took a few pictures him
self. Three of them turned out pretty
well and are used, along with the one
of Jimmy's that had : been focused
right by accident.
Home in the Twill zht
Ke.lam is some driver of an auto
mobiles He coaxed that old Smith
car into believing that it had per
petual youth in its tank instead of
gasoline. Dr. "Jimmy took off his
hat and sat on it. The wind whis

seven stylish cars with ease. We saw
four others dead by the roadside and -caught

miles in an hour and ten minutes.
And yet Keilam said his car wouldn't

barring a wreck.
When there's anything doing at
