Wilson Makes 80 Yard Run With Forward Pass. Cam]) Hancack divisional footba’l team went to Charleston last Satur day to engage the Navy Yard team and the battle ended in a draw. Neither side scored. The Hancock boys made splendid trains during the first quarter, but the Navy defense stiffened when near the goal line and the local boys failed in their efforts to put the ball over. Navy was unable to penetrate the de fense of the Hancock team and only In the last quarter was any substan tial showing made. In the last quarter, Wilson, of Han rock, caught a forward pass and ran 10 yards to the 10-yard line before be ing downed. Although so near' the goal line, the Hancock boys were held firmly by the sailors. Deutschen, of Hancock, played a great game at quarter, while Wicker sham, at end, and Webster, tackle, made a formidable combination. For ward passes were tried frequently, but unsuccessfully. Withering, Prestiss end Oroda saved the day for the Navy. Che line up: Camp Hancock. Navy. Position. Gold Johnson Fullback. Wilson Witherington Right Halfback. Harper Anderson Left Halfback.

Fast Soccer Game Last Week Proves Visitors Invincible. Game Thanksgiving Morning. (By A. H. MarviH. Playing a fast game from beginning to end, the British Tommies from across the big pond, assisted by a couple of the local contingent, proved to be too much for their American cousins of the 110th Infantry in a soccer game played at Building 78 last Wednesday and finished on the long end of a 4 to 1 score. The contest was replete with sensa tional plays from the kickoff to the final blow of the whistle. Scrimmages were numerous throughout the game and the up t ators were given many a hearty laugh over the tumbles. In the center of the field was a large muddy surface and most of the players, not being equipped with non-skid feet, had a merry time slipping on it. On one occasion Kelly and Crompton rushed toward the leather sphere with malice aforethought and got it—-right at the edge of the mud. Kelly skidded —so did Crompton—-Kelly on his stomach and Crompton on his back •—Kelly’s back. With express train speed they neared the other side, neither swerv ing to the right or to the left; neither did they speak or utter a sound. Kelly’s nose acted as rudder. When they got to the other side, they stopped. Then Kelly said, “Well, old an, you’ll have to get off here, this is as far as I go.” The first half ended 3 to 0 for the Tommies, but the 110th came back strong in the second half and each side was able to register but one tally. Thanksgiving morning at 10:30, the camp will be given an opportunity to see the team in action. Keep your weather eye pealed for the line-up: Tomies. Position. 110th. Marvill ~ Moss Goal.

They will be missed by the men with whom they have worked, but in their broader sphere so activity, we wish them God-speed. Co. I, 110th, Has Fast Baseball Team Co.

Although one sided, the game was interesting and hard fought. theTaiserTlanted With all the ceremonies due a de parted favorite, the Kaiser was buried Sunday. Impressive to the last detail was the funeral, and the eulogy pronounced by Corporal Ormond, of Company M, was wholly expressive of the occasion. Scores of the 112th regiment boys at tended the brief services, held at 9 o’clock; the body, borne on a litter carried by Wilbur Troutman and Fred Dunkerley, was taken to its last rest ing place, escorted by Corporals Colla han, Bender, Ivlingler and Private Wal ter O’Donnell. Each detail was carried out with exactness and simplicity, even the headstone was erected to mark the last resting place of— Kaiser, for Kaiser was the pet'dog of Company M, and he had fallen vic tim to a hospital motor ambulance two hours before.

BRAVE LIEUTENANT The American army in France was thrilled by the heroic action of a young lieutenant in saving the life of a soldier. A private, a memer of a patrol, lost his way and went to sleep In a shell crater in No Man’s Land. The patrol returned and it was found he was missing. At daylight the Germans saw the sol dier nea» 4Kie line and opened fire with rifles and grenades. He remained in the crater. A lieutenant, whose home is In *- Wyoming, saw the man was in danger of immediate death and went out over No Man’s Land through a hail of en emy machine gun bullets several hun dred yards, got the soldier and led him back to the American lines amid cheers. The soldier said that he did not know in what direction his qwn lines were, otherwise he would have tried to get to them himself. Page 5 sn 11 1 ! ! LI ES3E3
