Rousing Mass Meeting Held
on Night of the Tigers
Songs and Speeches Express
Hooters Confidence in
Football Team
AH the latent and unspent energy
and enthusiasm of 2000 Tiger rooters
was turned loose last night Some
of it had lain dormant all season and
with that which had been awakened
since the last outburst of Friday it
was released and cheer after cheer
was given for the Tigers on the night
of their departure
It was the last football mass meet
ing of the year and it was an hour
or more of cheer and song and laugh
ter and expressions of confidence It
was as if as many as 2000 warriors
were themselves preparing for battle
The meeting was divided into three
parts The big auditorium was packed
a quarter of an hour before the for
mal opening There was music by the
band and an outburst of cheering and
then James S Summers a graduate
of the University of Missouri on be
half of the Kansas City Y M C A
sent here as a representative or that
organization made a short speech in
viting the Tiger rooters to be guests
of the big association in the city
Wednesday night and all day Thurs
day He said that this invitation had
not been extended in this way before
because of a lack of facilities of the
But now he declared the associa
tion is in its handsome new building
and we have ample room and ample
facilities for receiving you We have
more than 200 homes at your disposal
where you may stay at night if you so
desire and at a cost of more than 200
we are going to serve luncheon at noon
for 25 cents and dinner at night for
50 cents in the association building
to the students of the University of
Missouri You are cordially invited to
be with us
Mr Summers told the Tiger rooters
all bent on knowing of the situation
among the friends in the city of the
two schools that University of Kan
sas alumni in Kansas City were pain
fully silent They met a bitter de
feat last year and they are going back
this year he said in even stronger
You will have to go one farther
than you did last year he continued
they have not only the determination
to win as they had last year but a
determination as well to avenge last
years defeat
The throng of Tiger rooters was
turned out and led by the band they
paraded through the streets past the
gymnasium and on to Rollins field
Here they burned in effigy a spy from
the Jayhawk camp The funeral ser
vice was pronounced by Orville Zim
merman president of the all senior
At the conclusion of this ceremony
there was a rush for the auditorium
They crowded into the building and
there their gaze met a large picture of
the coach standing by the president of
the University
This was thrown upon a screen and
the audience cheered every minute the
picture was in view The picture of
a real tiger head was given as great
an applause Then followed the
speeches The captain or the Tigers
talked for a few minutes He said he
believed his men would fight as hard
as their strength permitted He asked
that every Tiger rooter do as much
A G Alexander a former Tiger was
called on for a talk He called out in
clear tones these words
Will the Tigers Win
The response came back as if from
every throat
They will
His speech was short
The coach was next
I can not tell you ho said how
I appreciate this support We have had
many happy experiences here togeth
er Of course we have all made mis
takes I have made mistakes the
team has made mistakes and I dont
know but that you have made mis
A game like this Kansas game is
no ordinary affair even in football A
great game such as this is is a won
derful inspiration and we feel it we
see the expression of it here tonight
I cannot tell you what its outcome
will he Football games are not al
ways won by the teams that under
stand the technique of football best

It depends as much on the determina
tion to fight so long as there is hope
and you have a part in that fight
The men have never been in better
physical condition all year but they
are lighter by about ten pounds to a
man than the men they are to meet
and that is a great handicap for a foot
ball team But every bit of this
weight and every bit of this strength
will be put into play
That was enough It was all the
2000 rooters wanted the coach to say
and they expressed their pleasure and
satisfaction in their applause
T A Gibson assistant coach road
a number of poems on the game which
brought much laughter He had Kan
sas beaten and humiliated in every
line and of course it pleased Mr Gib
son read these in a droll Irish way and
the clever arrangement of the verses
and the laughable form of delivery
aroused more real fun and sent the
serious but ever shouting rooter out
with even a little more merriment in
his cheer
The Tigers were drawn to the train
in a large dray wagon by the men
who had been shouting and were yet
to shout for them They wanted a
part even in the carrying of the men
to tire station The crowd followed
in series of long lines which extended
from curb to curb and all the way
they sang At the station the Tigers
were boosted on to the Pullman and
with the singing of Old Missouri
when every head was bared they were
drawn away They will rest until
Thursday morning the day of the
game in Excelsior Springs and at
noon on Thursday they will go into
Kansas City

Jack is dead Alter a varied career
on three legs he has given up his life
in the interest of science Jack was
only a mule and a crippled one at that
For more than a year his left hind
loot did not touch the ground He
had a broken stifle joint Hut life was
just as sweet to him as it he had four
good legs He cculd kick as hard
and enjoyed life just as well as it he
had two hind fet with which to kick
the unwary lrcsliinan in vet labor
Only throe days ago when hard
pressed he jumped over a stone wall
five feet high He was the most ac
tive mule on three legs that Missouri
could boast of For a year ho has
caused aspiiing veterinary students to
scratch their heads and wonder what
could he the matter with his game
leg t was a puzzling problem At
last it was decided that lack must
lay down his life in order that science
might bo the wiser
Thursday morning was the time
chosen for the elucidation of Jacks
crippled condition So he was caught
Two husky and valiant vet students
ran the gauntlet of his flying heel and
succeeded in placing a halur on the
protesting mule Four ounces of chlo
roiorm were required to put the old
mule in a condition rendering prox
imity to him safe With a long drawn
out sigh he finally closed his eyes
He was operated on and found to
bo a hopeless case So it was de
cided to kill him When Jack came
to he was assisted to his feet The
serious expression in his eyes changed
to on of despair when he saw thoj
gravo faces of the surgeons about
But his seivice to science had not
yet ended He must have his picture
taken in order that the exact posi
tion in which he stood could he noted
He was then led away to be shot
He is to be dissected and the trou
ble located and deseiibed fully Poor
Jack will never know just what was
the matter with him Pictures of the
injured joint of the muscles and the
position which they were drawn into
will be taken and studied The cai
cass will he kept in the veterinary
laboratory for some time and studied
by the students in that department

Dr Gordon Doesnt Know
Where the Funds Would
Come from
Another- Committeeman Says
Additional Officers Are
Not Necessary
Two members of the city council
committee on police think more patrol
men cannot be employed because the
citys revenues are too limited
Dr James Gordon says that he
thinks additional men on the force are
desirable especially at night but that
he is unable to sec where the money
is to come from The city council
finds difficulty in meeting its bills
even with the present force
T J Hatton thinks that the revenue
available does not justify even a sec
ond man on the day force He says
also that he does not think additional
policemen necessary even if the city
bad the money to pay them He
thinks that on account of the large
area covered by the residence sec
tions an extra half dozen men could
not give the city a clean record in the
way of keeping down petty stealing
and hold ups
