The Mis souri valley football season closed yes terday with nearly all the teams run ning true to form. Nebraska had al ready won a clear title to the valley championship by her defeat of Kansas and Missouri. The big conference game was the annual Missouri-Kansas classic. Ne braska played her first game with an eastern team with considerable credit, only the failure to kick goal from a touchdown bringing her defeat, 10 to 9, at the hands of the Syracuse eleven. Missouri showed a little more strength than in any other game of the season but was outclassed by her an cient rival after the first five minutes of play. . The Oklahoma Aggies who had not been expected to show much strength held Oklahoma scoreless. Illinois romped through the Camp Funston line at Fort Riley. Drake took the same sort of beating she had suffered in nearly every game of the season, Ames winning, 47 to 0. Washington held St. .Louis university to 13 points but was unable to score herself. The Kansas Aggies won their game from Washburn with ease. Arkansas took a beating at the hands of Texas to the south of the conference, being unable to scqre while Texas scored 20 points. COINCIDENCES SE OF FK A chain of unfortunate circum stances resulted in the total destruc tion yesterday morning at 10.15 o'clock of the residence of H. E. Groom at 1409 EflRt. MeKinlev street. Mr. Groom was doing some painting about the premises which necessitated his passing through the front room ot the dwelling. While doing so he tripped on a rug and spilled a quantity of inflams.ble material directly in front of the fireplace in which a fire was burning. The stuff caught fire and be gan to blaze in an instant. Groom rushed out of the room to get a hose with which to extinguish the flames but upthinking, slammed the dooi' on which there was a night latch. In possession of the hose he tried to force an entrance into the room but was un able to do so and had to run around the house and enter by the rear door. By this time the flames had gained so much headway that it was impossible for him to combat them successfully. A fire alarm was turned in and sev eral pieces of aparatus responded. Arriving at the scene of the fire the department was unable to render any assistance because the house was out side the city limits and the hose was of insufficient length to reach. the fire from the nearest fire plug. The lower story of the house was of brick, which is the only part which, now remains standing. The total loss amounts to probably $5,000, a quantity of furniture liaving been destroyed along with the house. Mr. Groom is a well known local real estate dealer, Bicycle fans were so enthused over the Thanksgiving day races that it is probable another program of events will be staged a lew aays Deiore Christmas. At least there is consider able talk of such a contract between "promoters" and participants. If the race is arranged there will probably be a match race between Dule Cross, who broly the record on Thanksgiving, Brazee, Ivester and Donahoo. and an event in which beautiful roses artistically arranged, with pepper boughs. Each guest was given a buttonhole bouquet. Sand wiches, cake and coffee were served at midnight. Edward Williams will sell his home stead on 16, north of the canal, at pub lic auction Monday morning. This is the first time any of the land north of the canal has been sold that way and the sale is creating much interest. BICYCLE It IfE hM fiuik! afienr fan fa will lb dnifgdl -TOO LATE TO CLASSHFf.

The latter will be staged between a number of the younger boys and a turkey will prob ably be put up as the prize. 7?'is prob able the events will be ptriSoff on the Sunday preceding Christmas. The course will be the same as in the Thanksgiving day races between the Country club and The Arizona Re publican office. Much interest was evinced in the last contest and it is expected that many people will turn out to see the lads battle for supremacy. CMIFLM ID E SCIENTIFIC A camouflage contingent has been organized at Los Angeles for service on the French front. It is intended tn make the Germans see things that do not exist and to keep them from seeing other things in plain view. Lee Daw son, of the Universal Film company, is at the head of this illusory detachment. Among the 65 members of the com pany is Ross Holmes a brotner ot 1. H. Holmes, the Associated Press oper ator for The Republican. There is no other such an organiza tion in the sen-ice. There have been men practicing camouflage, but they have been doing it in a crude, though sometimes effective, way. It is now to be undertaken by scientists trained in the art of fooling people and they think, they will have no trouble in fooling the Dutch. t i Inquiries from outside registrants reauire as much attention at tha 1 hands of the Maricopa county ex emption board as the handling of local men, according to a member of the board, who says that an un usually large number of men from other sections of the country are ' apparently spending the winter in Phoenix. "These men were not here during the time we were giving publicity to the changes made in the opera tion of the draft," said the member of the board, "and hence we are called upon to answer a great many questions each day. from eligibles who do not . know what is expected of them. There is no remedy, for the condition except for us to en lighten those who are uninformed, but it makes a lot of work for the board.
