SEEL CLASHED.ON STEEL ON MONTANA. -i
SHEREO c AND]TODAY THE BRUINS MAY WELL BE PROUD AGAIN THE AGGIES SUFFER A DEFEAT AT BRUINS' HANDS IN THE BEST GAME THAT THE UNIVERSITY AND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE HAVE PLAYED ON THE MONTANA FIELD, BOZEMANITES LOSE BY 26 TO 9 SCORE-EVERY VARSITY MAN WORKS HARD -VANCE BRIGHTEST STAR. . . . . , . It must be great today to be a player on the university football team. It must be great for the players to feel today that having been called upon by their Alma Mater, to win the gridiron contest of the season, they were able, to answer that call and place the colors of the university high over those of Montana's agricultural college. It must be great for the players to feel today that they have achieved one of the biggest football victories in the state. It was with a vengeance that the Bruins took the Aggies into camp yesterday on Montana field. Though the . Aggies put up the grandest fight that any team from Bozeman has put up in Missoula, that organization is wending its way back over the continental divide today, crushed and broken under a score of 26 to 9. A score that was doubly hard to accept as final because the Aggies had the better of the argument in the first half of the game. Overconfidence Poisons Old Man Overconfidence stalked among the iBruins before yesterday's game and the poison that he spread was absorbed by Montana's football players to such a degree that it took more'than 30 minutes of hard knocks for the Bruins to get the almost paralyzing venom out of their systems. In that first half of the battle, Montana was out played. Though pitted against a team that was not as heavy and without as brilliant a record as the Bruins, Mon tana's hopes seemed to be at a loss to know what to do. They scored a touchdown, to be sure, but the break of the luck gave them that. The Aggies also scored a touchdown in the first peo6do; they got it by hard work. Bruins Hit Stride After the Bruins had really gotten back into their stride; after they had learned through rep,eated set backs and their goal line had been crossed, the men fighting for Montana began an attack that left no doubt as to the outcome of the game. However, no matter what their performance in the first period of the battle, the Bruins did work enough in the second period to completely vindicate them and every man proved that he is deserving of a niche in Montana's football of fame. Vance Brightest Star Of the star performers on Montana's eleven, the work of Halfback Vance stands out the most prominently. His 50-yard run to within a few yards of the Aggies' goal was perhaps the most spectacular of his stellar perform ances of the afternoon, but to those who watched the game closely this was but one of a series of plays by him that made possible the great victory for Montana. Vance was 'everywhere at the right time. His tackling was sure; his advancing of the ball was consistent and his work in helping his teammates along was wonderful. With6ut the work of Vance, yesterday, the Bruins would have been a weaker team by at least 20 points. OTHER STARS OTHER STARS The list of Montana's stars cannot stop with Vance, however. Robertson, at quarterback, ran- his team with the same good judgment that has brought comment from every football expert in: the northwest who has seen him play. He was in charge of the lituattonta all the time and was himself one of the varsity's best ground gainers. Clarke, at end, Daems, at guard, Sanderson, at fullback, Simpkins, at tackle, Claypool, at half, and Captain Owivsley each did all that could be ex pected of anyone to bring victory to Montana. ('Captain Owsley never for a moment allowed his men to be dis heartened and his cries of "Fight," "Fight," could be heard on all parts of the campus. On the defense, Owsley was a tower of strength and time after time it was his speed and headwork that pulled down the fast Aggie backs before they got away for material gains. llentz played his usual strong game. Schreck and Gault, who went in as substitute ends, played as well as the men whom they replaced. Thia pair protected their territory erlually as well as the men who had been chos en for the first string. Never has Montana been as fortu nact as this year in having a string of substitutes that can fill the shoes of c Ih'l first string men. There were set- ral nmen put in the gm;lle yestclda:y and from the manner in which th'y fouIght and gained atrains; the Age i.., the spectators could not, tell that a change had been made.

"Montana earned its vic tory over the Aggies, ! believe, after being outplayed in the first half. The game was one of the best that I have seen in Montana and the fiht and spirit shown 1b,, the eleven from Bozeman was good to see. The name was a clean contest, as far as I was able to see, and much credit is due the coaches and players, the principals in the gridiron battle on Montana field. The comehack of the Mon tana team in the second half was a wonderful. one and the manner in which they conducted their at tack in the last two periods was a plessure to see."

"Montana seemed to be troubled with a touch of aver-confiden'ce in the first quar ter and failed to show the form that has characterized their play in other names this season. The last half of the game, however, was bang-up football from start to finish. "The Aggies were outweighed by the university eleven but the Bozeman team fought like Trojans and deserve great credit for their exhibition. The forwards on both teams played great ball and smashed up a big majority of the plays directed their way. Al though the rivalry between the contesting lineups was exception ally keen, the game was not marred by rough play." Taylor ......... ........... ......... ...... Bentz Left-Talckle-Right.

I GEORGE CHIP BEATEN IN HIS CLABBY BOUT d San Francisco, Nov. 6.-Jimy C(lab by of Hammond, Ind., won a decision over George Chip of New Castle, Pa., in a 20-round fight here tonight. It was the closing professional ring en gagment in California, prize fighting Ln having been outlawed by Tuesday's election. The men arc middleweights. BRUINS FAILED COACH IN FIRST I "The first half of th- game s5 against the Acgi6 was very satis- y factory to mb," "aid Coach Heil- .t man of the university eleven. T "Montana's team did not seem to Y get going well in that period. How ever, the second half of the battle E was much better than the first and on the whole I am rather ' pleased with the work of the men. Had Montana plalyed as they 1 played here against Pullman. I be- d lieve the score would have been 50 t to 0. It was a little over-confi- F denco of the players, I think, that y allowed the university's goal line to be crossed. I want to say, too, that I appreciate the support that g was given the team by the people of Missoula and ,the students of the university. The turnout of l townspeople was especially grati fying." ! GONZAGA WILL PLAY BUTTE MINERS TODAY Butte, Nov. 6.-The School of Mines will play the Gunzaga college team at the gardens tomorrow and a record breaking crowd promises to be in at tendance, as this will be the most im portant game on the loool eleven's schedule, and there should be much spectacular footlall to interest the ri spectators. It is almost like two Butte teams playing, as there are six former Butte boys on the Gonzaga team and Coach Ilt:rmon formerly re sided here and conahed the Butte high I school football team. The Gonzaga 1 alumni have interested themselves n this game and will be out in force and will see that the Spokane students arc w\ll treated while visiting in this city.. See Game Here.

TRIMMED (By Carl Getz) Bigger crowrds have Ibeen seen on 1l ,Montana field .but' never has 'a' more enthusiastic throng of spectators flooded the grandstand, bleachers and side lines than fliat which saw the I University of Montana team win" the football championship of the state. yes-i terday afternoon. The game was called for 3 o'clock but the first fol- l lowers of the Brutns appearedi a little after noon. By 2 o'clock the grand- , stand was packed and when the game' started at 3 o'clock, there were 2,500 people who were on their toes to watch the two teams battle for the state championship. The university students were in their usual place and under the unique guidance of Yell Leader Gregory Pout ell gave an exhibition of rooting that was an eye-opener to .the old grad who returned home to see the big 1 game of the season. The Bozeman delegation with their bhand were given a section of bleachers on the east side of the field. Automobiles were lined up along part of the east and on the north,end of the field. Boxes for those who had the money and the inclina tion were provided by the. manage ment. These were lined along the west side of the field. And there was color everywhere. Followers of the two teams' were bledecked with pennants and arm bands and every play brought forth a great display of color. Alumni Give 'Pennant Just before the game was called a large University of Montana pennant which had been presented to the stu dent body by the alumni was unfurled while the crow,d cheered enthusiastic ally. Just to convince the. Bozeman dele gation that,the university undergrad uate's heart was ii the right place, the freshmen organized a clown band which was a side breaker. No, there were no musical instruments. Nothing but drums. Little drums, big drums and little drums. And they, marched and marched and marched and now and then could be heard the fife of the little end man on the Montana State College Regimental band. Aggies' 'Goat "Among those present" was the Ag gies' goat. He was led by a university student who announced to the crowds that Montana would soon have the Bozeman Angora. And then there was the farmer. With his pitch fork and hayseed' hot and overalls he paraded back and Jertb.. - hen. *. he--Aggies scored in the first half, there was the fear expressed that the sign on the goat might have to be changed. But when Montana caught her stride again, the farmer was attacked by a bear and then one very solemn funeral was held. Hats off, the procession approaches. Procession Led by a little red, white and blue wagon, pulled by a little wall-eyed donkey with the .coffin on board, fol lowed by six pall bearers with white gloves, heads bar'e and all in step, the funeral procession came slowly and solemnly around the field and when the quiet little parade passed the Bozeman section, some one asked: "What's the joke." "Stunts" The between halves stunts amused the crowd as usual. Both groups of rooters swarmed out onto the field and formed two serpentines,' each led by the band. One band played one piece and the other band had a differ ent selection. There .was shouting and singing and everyone was merry ex cept the delegation from the Aggie town who had peen its goal line crew crossed twice. And then the two teams came trotting out onto the field and one' mad rush was' made for the stands. In a moment the two teams had lined up again and the game was on. Montana had made one touchdown on a fluke and the second one was a gift of the gods. The state college t team had earned their lone touchdown. The Aggies had succeeded in bottling up ttie varsity ends. The excitement was instense. Professors as well as un dergraduates forgot themselves and shouted themselves hoarse, A few minutes passed and the varsity, had scored another touchdown. The Bozeman section was quiet.
