The Adair foot ball team came
over last Thursday with a goodly
number^! backers and met our
local team on the gridiron in West
Town. The game was called at 2:30
with the ball in the hands of the
visiting team. They made a good
kick off but the ball was pushed
well back toward the center ere they
could stop it. They failed to smash
thiough the Exira lineup and lost
the ball by not gaining the neces
sary distance. When the ball got
in the bands of the Exira team it
was a walk away. The line smash
ing the Exira team was something
tremendous. The boys could go
through Adair's center and make
from 0 to 15 feet gains every time.
The pace soon began to tell on the
visiting team. Finally before the
first half was finished they objected
to a ruling of the referee and quit.
The local team then offered to give
them the ball where they wanted it
and to change and give them their
own referee. They refused how
ever to do this. The natural
supposition was that they con
sidered themselves out classed.
They seemed to be made up of a
first rate class of fellows who start
ed in to play a good clean game.
We feel sure they cannot complain
of the treatment offered by our boys
in offering to give them their own
referee and affording an opportun
ity to finish the game. After re
turning to town they wished to put
up money to play but every offer
was covered and yet they did not
line up again. Our boys are in
good Bhape and would give any
team a good game.
