CntOER'S GREAT GAME

THOMAS PLAYED A PINE GAME
EARLHAM 17, BUTLER .
Butler's football championship aspir
ations died this afternoon when Earl-
ham gave them the small end of a
' seor of 17 to 6. '
No team was more confident of vic
tory than the Butler boys were when
they arrtred In. the Quaker City. They
had been circulating big bear stories
and expected them to have effect on
the local team. Bat contrary to their
expectations Earlham was too strong
and outclassed the visitors . at all
stages of the game.
Jt kick off by Earlham started the
game. After working back and forth
for time the ball was carried Into
Earlham territory and Thomas, the
Butler giant carried the ball across
the Earlham line for a touchdown.
Thomas kicked goal.,
After the first quarter Butler be
came considerably weakened. Early
In the second quarter Brunner made a
, touchdown but failed to kick goal."
Just before the end of the second
quarter after the Earlham line had
showed some splendid offensive work
Brunner again carried the ball over
the Butler line. This time he kicked
goal. First halt ended 11 to 6 la Earl-
The third quarter was marked by
several long runs. Jones and Stanley
each carried the ball seventy yards for
touchdowns but the were not count-

made a , touchdown and Brunner

Their back field Is much stronger
than It was and their line plays a

San Antonio, Texas, Nov. 12. In the
absence of federal or state aid for
good roads southwest Texas Is setting
about the solution of the good roads
question la a manner that may be of
Interest to scores of other states
where the organization for directing
the construction of good rads is poor.
In this state, aa In' a great many oth
ers, there is no provision for the eon.
traction of good roads by the state.
This matter is entirely in the hands
of the county officials. In a territory
as sparsely settled as southwest Texas
till Is, in spite of Its enormous Immi
gration, good roads are particularly
necessary because the distances to be
traveled are long. Imperative neces
sity baa forced the counties to organ
ize among themselves counties which
vote for good roads bonds and special
taxes quite readily. Others refuse to
do so. Now the proposition of each
county Is usually to get a good high
way across several counties la addi
tion to providing its own little net
work of good roads. Therefore, hav
ing voted bonds the county officials of
the fortunate county takes up negotia
tions with the neighboring county
through which a good road is desired
on very much the same basis that one
nation would negotiate a treaty with
another. The obvious advantage of
the good road in question, is usually
sufficient argument to induce the back
ward county to fall Into line.
But the county having a good roads
fund at Its disposal has force as well
as diplomacy at Its command. Such
a county, presuming that it has an ob
stinate neighbor to the north, - can
construct all county highways up to
within two, three, four or five miles
of the county line and then leave an
Intervening area of very bad roads.
This very seldom falls to force the
neighboring county to action.
Using these methods it Is possible
to drive a highway straight as the
crow files across several hundred
miles of country where the, per capita
cost of good roads is comparatively
high owing to the fact that southwest
Texas is far from being thickly popu
lated. Such a proposition Is now ba
ng handled between San Antonio and
Corpus ChrlstL The Bureau of Good
Roads at Washington was requested
to send an expert to furnish the coun
ty officials Information' about routes

sad road material. Fay McGIure was
sent and baa recently submitted his
preliminary report. Commercial clubs
along the way and the Saa Antonio
chamber of commerce are now lending
their moral support to the proposition
and there Is little doubt that the next
few months will see under way a road
going straight from 8an Antonio to
Corpus Chrlstl through what was only
a few years ago the vast stronghold of
the cattle baron. Undoubtedly no
other means now at the command of
those who realize the Importance of
good county roads could accomplish
these results. A campaign to get fed
eral aid for good roads has been waged
in a desultory, manner, and thus far
fruitlessly, for many years. State, aid
for roads In a sparse settled state al
ways presents the difficulty that the
money can be spent several hundreds
of miles away from at least three-
fourths of the population.
It Is Interesting to observe what a
dynamo of activity one county with , a
good roads fund at its command be
comes. Some years ago Bexar county,
of which San Antonio Is the principal
part, voted a bond Issue of 8500,000,
With this a network of good roads was
built that made the automobile loops
of this scenic bit of territory nation
ally famous. Since then county roads
have radiated in every direction from
this city until now It Is possible to
make at least 20 trips to as many dif
ferent towns within one hundred miles
of San Antonio over roads which are
in excellent condition all the year,
The suggestion for all of these roads
came from the example set by this one
In tact so successful have been the
efforts of the good roads builders of
Texas that a proposition is now being
urged for the construction of a high
way that shall run due north and
south from the Red River, the north
ern . boundary of Texas, to the Rio
Grande, the southern boundary. Such
a road will bevabout 600 miles long.
It will travel from blizzard swept rzr
lrle to a territory In which snow has
never been seen. It will be long
enough to cross at least two of any
other states in the Union That such
s proposition should be seriously con
sidered by a mere collection of coun
ties Is some Indication of thevresults
