by the students in the Kansas State
Agricultural college. Even should
the Aggie football team lose all other
games but accomplish the feat of hu
miliating the gridiron heroes from the

great joy in the local camp.

K. IT. Is Confident.
' Lawrence, Kan.. Oct. 19.- So con
fident are University, of Kansas stu
dents who admit sporting tendencies,
of the outcome of the game next Sat
urday with the Kansas Aggies, - that
they are searching for wagers that the
Jayhawkers will win by two touch
downs. This confidence, however, is
having no effect in the actual prac
tice of the Kansas eleven, although
it is admitted that part of the stiff
preparation this week is done with the
thought of the hard Oklahoma game
Among the spectators at the Drake
Kansas game Saturday was W. R.
Heath, sr., of Kansas City, father of
the right end on the Jayhawker eleven.
Mr. Heath, sr., was the first football
coach ever at Kansas university. He
was practicing law in Kansas City just
after completing his college course at
Wesleyan university in Massachusetts
back in 1891. At Wesleyan he was
scheduled as an All-American guard.
Heath successfully drilled the Jay
hawkers for two seasons. Now he
comes to Lawrence as often as possible
to watch his son play.

AGGIES WERE SORE.
Manhattan Mayers Claim Hargiss
Disced Field to Slow Tliem Up.
The Kansas Aggie football team
was in Topeka Saturday evening sore
from their defeat at the hands of the
Normal, 13 to 0, and sore from wad
ing through a swimming mudhole dur
ing the afternoon's game. The Aggies
are very light and have been depend
ing upon footwork and the forward
flip to gain for them.
Knowing this, the players said, the
Normal mentor caused the field to be
ciouoie disced, realizing mat it wouia
not affect his beefy team who did not
rely on speed for their gains. To cap
it off an inch of rain fell, making the
field a quagmire. The Aggies stood up
well on the defensive, holding the
Teachers scoreless for two quarters
but could make absolutely no head
way on the offense as the condition of
the soil paralyzed their offense.
"The score does not indicate the
standing of the teams," said Captain
Skinner of the Aggies. "Provided we
get a decent field against K. U. we 11
show a reversal in form next Satur
day." Whether Ahearn field will be in
condition or not is a question,. as the
Farmer team has been practicing in
the city park for the past two weeks.

A HARD BLOW TO FEDS
Robert B. Ward, Strong Backer of
the League, Is IH'ad.
New York, Oct. 19. Robert B.
Ward, head of brtad baking com
panies bearing his name in many
cities and widely known as a leading
figure in the Federal baseball league
as the president of the Brooklyn club,
died Monday night at his home in
New Rochelle, after a brief illness at
the age of 63 years.
Mr. Ward was born in New York
city, the son of a baker, and early in
life followed that occupation, going to
Pittsburg, where he set up in business,
married and prospered. He became
president of the common council of
that city and at the time of his death
was a director in many banks and
financial institutions there. Later Mr.
Ward came to New York and or
ganized baking companies here and in
Chicago, Boston, Buffalo and other
Mr. Ward, a life long baseball fan,
became one of the chief financial sup
porters of the Federal league at the
instance of its president, James A.
Gilmore, early in 1914. He was chosen
vice president of the league, then or
ganized the Brooklyn club, and, with
his brother, George F. Ward, built
Washington park, the home grounds.
Mr. Ward bore a reputation as a
true sportsman and cheerfully sup
ported the efforts of his associates in
the league to spend money lavishly in
its war on organized baseball. He
also was credited with financing the
Colonial league in New England. He
was strongly opposed to Sunday base
ball and never permitted the Brook
lyn club to plav on that day.
Mr.! Ward was taken ill with rheu
matism Tuesday and complications
hastened the end. He is survived by
his widow, who was Miss' Mary v C,
Brening, of Pittsburg, four daughters
and five sons.

announced the deal closed and the
salary $3,000. Labelle did not work

Moudav afternoon the Iehabods were con
gratulating themselves that Nebraska
didn't score a point a minute.
Also, many of them- were congratulating
themselves that they went to Lincoln Fri
day at noon instead of Friday night. They
passed over the bridge- at Kandolph at o
o'clock Friday night, and the accident hap
pened early the next morning.
Considering the steam roller they op
posed, the Iehabods are in fairly good
shape. None of tliem were killed and no
arms or legs were left as souvenirs.
But nearly every member of the team
has a spot on him somewhere that re
minds him of the game. Muirhead was
the most severely hurt of the scjuad. He
received a bad gash over the eye that laid
him out for a spell, and he will probably
be out of the game for a week or so.

"And then by Heck. It Is no joke, I 11 feel

one game," the second warrior said. "To

Mayhem's discouraged; gouging too.
Seldom we hear the thrilling moan
Of old. Men play a contest through
Without a single broken bone.

And speed Instead of beef and height.

Lillian H. Moore Tells of Schamber
Editor State Journal:
In reply to the article appearing in
a Sunday's paper under the caption:
"Without food, baby ill, yet woman
denied aid," I desire to say that I
called Saturday afternoon at 517 Fair
child street and talked with Mrs.
Schamber, who was busy making
preparations to go to the county over
seer's office to ask for help, as, she
kaid, her friends told her that "other
people got help there and she might
as well ask for help too."
I inquired several times if she
needed groceries, ar.d she simply re
iterated what she Jiad previously stat
ed, "that har friends told her to ask ,
the county for help as others were
getting help there and she might as
well have her share." When I final
ly asked what it was that she did want
she said it was to have some one stay
with the children when she went back
to work. It was while trying to plan
some way that that might be accom
plished that Mrs. Schamber first re
fused any assistance, and also stated
that she did not want me to interview
her relatives with a view of getting
them to help her. When I suggested
that her family might be able to assist
her she said that they might help only
they like to "dress too well." The
children were eating apples and bread
and appeared fairly well dressed. This
was about the middle of the after
noon. Mrs. Srhamber was unwilling to ask
i assistance from her relatives; her
j whole contention being that the coun
ty should help. It was just to combat
this erroneous impressicn in theJ
minds or tne gt-nerai pudiic inai i was

commissioners, and to protect the tax
payers to the extent of seeing that the
fund for the relief of the poor of the
county should be expended in as wise
and intelligent manner as possible in
order that those who were entitled to
relief should have it, and that those
who had other resources upon which
to draw should ur-e them. To the de
pendent class public funds appear in
exhaustible, and theirs an inalienable
right to the uses thereof regardless of
I did not refuse help at any time,.
but Mrs. Schamber urgeo. me not to
interview her mother, sisters and
brother (nothing was said about a
grandfather) but requested me fur
ther to do nothing more in the matter.
She followed me outside the gate to
tell me that she wanted me to drop
the matter entirely.
As Mrs. Schamber's relatives (five
of whom are wage earners) live with
in a block of her and are familiar with
her circumbtances, it is unreasonable
to assume that they wculd permit the
family to suffer "over Sunday." Dr.
Plummer has been attending the baby
for two weeks and would doubtless
have notified the Public Health Nurs
ing association if he had thought a
nurse necessary or desirable without
waiting for my call which he could not
possibly have anticipated.
This has never been reported to the

TO ADOPT BIBLE STUDY
Iowa Educational Council Will Kcc
- ommend High School Credits.
Des Moines, Iowa, Oct. 3 9. The ed
ucational council of the Iowa State
Teachers' association will recommend
to the convention, to be held here
during the first week in November, a
course in Bible study for the high
schools of Iowa, ' according to an an
nouncement made here today. This
study course will be incorporated in
the report of a special committee
which has been investigating similar
courses in Indiana, North Dakota and
The proposed course, it was said,
will follow closely the North Dakota
plan, which lent itself readily to use
in Indiana and has- several years of
history to recommend it, having been
used since 1912. The course, accord
ing to the committee, is divided into
four equal parts, two in the new tes
tament, and two in the old testament,
each part being complete in itself.
Each of the four provides material
for about . fifty lessons so that the
work of any two parts taken together
would be equivalent to a half year's
work in any hish school subject. The
plan provides that if the work is done
satisfactorily the pupil shall receive
the same credit as in any other sub
ject that is taken for one school
The purpose of the course is to give
the boys and girls of Iowa high
schools an opportunity to familiarize
themselves with the literature of the
Bible as a part of thf.ir general educa
tion and culture. The only require
ment is that the candidate for credit
shall show to the high school princi
pal sufficient evidence of a satisfac
tory knowledge of the course. To ob
tain this the plan provides for a uni
form examination on the course
throughout the state at least once a
As the adoption of the course in any
community is depending cn the sanc
tion of the school board, it is proposed
that the course of study be submitted
to each local school board for approv
al and to the state department of ed
ucation. Already Given in Kansas.
A course in Bible study, for which
regular high school credits are given,
was made a part of the curriculum of
the high schools of Kansas at the be
ginning of the school term this fall.
