THE LAST GAME OF THE SEASON WILL BE PLAYED ON RELO FIELD THANKSGIVING QUAKERS VERSUS MIAMI Both Teams Are Evenly Matched Earlham's Record This Season. j Thursday afternoon Earlham plays her final football game of the season with the Miami University eleven at Reid Field. As both teams are near ly evenly matched the game prom ises to be the closest seen on a local gridiron this season. Like Earlham, Miami has been un fortunate this season and the show ing her eleven has made has been extremely poor. Cincinnati Univer sity smothered the Oxford lads and Ohio State overwhelmed them bv the score of SI to 0. Two weeks ago Miami cancelled a game scheduled with the champion Wabash' College team and the reason assigned for the action was that the Miami team had become discouraged by a long string of defeats and had denuded' to disband. This proved to be a bear story however as the Oxford University will put a team in the field against Earlham. Local followers of tie game are of the opinion that the-action of Miami i" cancelling the-Wabash game was simply a subterfuge in getting out of a contest in which Miami had no chance of winning. Nocomrmrison of "Hire- Earlham and Miami teams can he made a neither team has met an opjtoiicut with which the other team has had a contest, but as far as defeats are concerned Earlham can rightfully boast of as long a list as the Oxford bunch. So far: this season the Qua kers have -played nine games, win ning one, tieing two and losing sis. Wittenberg was the only eleven to succumb t the prowess of the Earl ham players. Draw games were play ed with the City Team of Richmond and tho Indiana Medics. Earlham has scored twenty-two joints and has been scored on one hundred and seventy-two times. Of the twenty two points to the credit of the Qua kers, six of them resulted from a touchdown scored by Hobbs. The re maining sixteen points were made by Laurence on place kicks. Earlham has been practicing hard for the Thanksgiving Day game and the last chance of making a good showing will be taken advantage of by thf unfortunate Earlham 'Varsity of 1004. A largo crowd is exjK-cted to attend the game. CHAS. HEYDLER Is to Give a Cellist Recital Next Monday Night.
