Sports and Recreational Activities at Camp GEO. R. FLEMING, ASSOCIATE DIVISIONAL ATHLETIC DIRECTOR. SCORELESS TIE AT CAMP JACKSON Hancock Division Team Plays Snappy Game—High Wind Interfered. With a strong wind blowing Camp Hancock football team played the divis ional team of Camp Jackson last Satur day, at Columbia, and the game ended with neither side scoring. The wind was so powerful as to interfere with the game seriously and made it difficult to field the punts accurately. Camp Jackson has not been scored against yet but the Hancock players gave them one of the greatest games they have played and the boys from Hancock went away with the reputation of having been one of the strongest teams that has visited Columbia. Snappy ball was played, notwithstand ing the high winds and some clever play ing was witnessed by the thousands of spectators. Although the ball was in Hancock's territory most of the time, the Jackson players lacked the punch to put it over the top. Cody, a former Van derbilt star, tried three times to kick a field goal, but failed in the attempts. The ball was on Hancock’s five-yard line when the first half ended. Schultz featured for Hancock with his clever tackling, while Gill, Moore, Wick erham and Morrison played a sterling game. The line-up: Camp Jackson. Camp Hancock. Positions.

A remarkable and interesting game of association football was played on Wednesday, December sth, between regimental teams of the 111th and 112th Infantry. The score was 3 to oin fav or of the 112th Infantry. Much credit is due to the boys of the 112th who volunteered to play in place of another team of the division, which cancelled its engagement at the eleventh hour. The 112th team had never played before as a team, al though every man is a player and knows the game. The team of the 111th is composed of seasoned players, who have played on well known Amer ican and English teams. Under the able leadership of Lieut. Barlow, who plays center half, the team has developed into a smooth machine. The splendid forward line, Chew on outside right starring, has a striking resemblance to a well balanced scale, each man playing his position- The halfback together with both fullbacks seemed to form an insurmountable bar rier to the opposing forwards which accounts for the fact that the goal keeper of the 111th team had to handle very few shots of which he disposed very well. The game started at 3 p. m. sharp Lieut. Cotterel umpiring. The tilth carried the ball immediately into ene my territory but could not find the rang?. It was not until the twenty fourth minute of play that Fleisher handed a ball to Phillips who scored the first goal. The second goal was scored by Chew from a penalty. Half time, 2 to 0. The resistance of the 112th team stiffened in the second half and be came aggressive at times. Only the wonderful nlaving of Ferguson prevent ed sonrmg. Ten minutes before the end Phi’lins scored the third and last go->l from center from the. left.

Mr. Glenn M. Colby, of Marietta, 0., tranferred here from Camp Taylor, at Louisville, Ky., is in charge of the physical training at Building No. 77. The enlisting of four of our men in the service last week necessarily de layed reports of activities and the present report includes several items, which were not reported last week. We suggest the following games for the use of the company athletic of ficers: Hook Arm Tag. Each player take a partner and hook inside arms, form long circle. One man is “it,” other man is chased by “it.” Chased man runs around out side circle and hooks arms of any player making three in a group instead of two. Third man must run and hook on to some other couple before he is tagged by- “it.” If “it” man tags chas ed man they immediately change places 'MEHY KOtAC • - - -- -- -- - «£. BCW4 OUR.

Pom-Pom Pull-a-Way. Marking a square area, across which , men must run, signal him given to “90,” by center man who is “it”; as each man is tagged he assists in the center to tag other men until all are , caught. All men cross on the given signal. Dodge Ball. Have large circle, with one-half the t men in the circle, the others forming a . circle. Men forming the circle try to hit the men inside the ring with the Basket Ball or Soccer Ball, each man ■ being hit falls into the outside circle and assists in hitting the man left in the ring. When all are out of the cen- ; ter, change places; the men forming ’ the outside circle, first, being in the center, the men who were inside be coming the outer circle. Rooster Fight. , Men lined up in twos, arms folded, hopping on one foot; object being to 1 make the other men put foot down on the ground—take any man-—-best roost er, the man left still hopping.

Man : with “Billy” continuing until he places i “Billy’ ’in another man’s hand. “Billy”—stuffed club of cloth about i thirty inches long. 109TH FIELD ARTILLERY DEFEATS TRENCH M.B. Victors Have Eleven Successes and Not One Defeat. May Play Division Team. Saturday afternoon the ■ 109th Artillery team added another game to its long list of victories by defeating Trench Mortar Battery, a team composed entirely- of former Bucknell varsity, and stars from various Pennsylvania prep schools. The game was clean and fast, both teams being in the best condition, and the Mortar boys being determined to break the clean record of the artillery team. From the beginning, the stiperior strength and speed of the Artillery was evident and the game ended with a score of 19-0. This completes a schedule of eleven games, all victories and the Artillery goal line has not been crossed. During the past week the team has been strengthened by the addition of Coons and Nolan, formerly with the cav alry. These men with Jones, Evans, H. Hughes. Haban, D. Hughes, Strojny and Randall compose two powerful sets of backs which can be relied upon. The line with a few exceptions has been de veloped from new material. Davies and Leader, ends, have been great ground gainers in every game and with the rest of the line have shewn wonderful form in tackling. The success of the team is due to the coaching of Brown, former State Col lege star, now an officer in the 109th. His untiring energy and knowledge of the finer points of the game has made his team one of the finest if not the best in the division. The question of sunremacy will be de cided in the near future when this team meets the picked team of the division, coached by Walter Camp, Jr. This game has been arranged several times but the teams have not been able to get to gether. Both teams are confident and the followers are eagerly awaiting the conflict. AMBULANCE NO. 2~WINS Last Saturday afternoon, on the old cavalry drill field, Ambulance Co. No. 2, displayed its prowess in the game of soccer by defeating the team of the 11th Infantry. Both teams gave a clever ex hibition, but the ambulance boys dis played better generalship and the score ended 2too in their favor. This victory sends the stock of the Ambulance soc cerites soaring, for recently they de feated the team consisting largely of British Tommies. Attention, Soccer Teams! Would you like to join a soccer league, games to be played on Wed nesday and Saturday afternoon. Send two men to represent your team Sat urday night, December 15th, to the administration building, Army Y. M. C, A., corner Wheless and Wrights boro roads. Be on hand promptly at 7:30. VICTROLA WANTED. Who has an extra victrola about the house, that gets in the way and annoys the housekeeper? - The administration building of the Army Y. M. C. A. has a very desirable place for storing the pesky thing and besides, we guarantee to keep it from rusting. Kind friends have sent us a number of victrola records, but they forgot the important thing—the ma chine. Who will operate it and when are two items that have will be worked out by the administration staff after said machine arrives. Here’s a chance to add greatly to the musical culture of the folks at the entrance to camp—and some of us need it badly. Page 5 t wiw ’-aw mw r i s V \ f A El 11
