Tomorrow's Football Game
Will Require Tiger Speed
and Skill.

ouri by Fifteen Pounds
to the Man.
About the Game.
Game starts at 2:30 o'clock.
Each team has lost a game.
Last year's score, 34 to 0.
Nebraska is heavier by 15 pounds
to a man.
They'll play 30-minute halves.
Nebraska has sent a band.
One team will be eliminated
from Valley championship race.
Forecast: Fine football weather.
Nineteen Cornhuskers, accompanied
by Coach "Jumbo" Steihm, arrived
this afternoon on the 3:40 Wabash.
Most of them look like big husky far
mer boys and live up to their reputa
tion of heavy-weights.
Coach Steihm is looking for a place
to practice his men this afternoon.
He said that the weather was not like
the kind he had been used to in Ne
braska. All the men are In good con
dition except a scrub tackle and a
The .Missouri Tigers will have to
face a handicap of 13 pounds a man
in the game with the Cornhuskers on
Rollins Field tomorrow. Every Tiger
except three will be outweighed from
7 to 39 pounds to the man according
to positions. But regardless of this
serious handicap of beef, the Tiger
followers are expecting Missouri to
slip in a small score and hold down
the heavy attacks of the big Nebras
kans. Should Missouri take the high end
of the score, Nebraska would be elim
inated from the championship race in
the Missouri Valley Conference. This
season both teams have lost one game
Ames 29, Missouri 0; Minnesota 13,
Nebraska 0.
The only three Tigers who are not
outweighed are two backfield men
and an end. Pixlee has 4 pounds the
better of Nebraska's left end al
though the Tiger will have to face
a heavier man at right end. McWil
liams and Potter, quarterbacks, each
weigh 150 pounds. Frank will be the
opposing halfback to LeMire, Tiger
captain, with 11 pounds to the latter's

Lansing and Herndon May Be Used In
Game Saturday.
Tiger practice yesterday was not
very inspiring. Practice went on re
gardless of the rain and wind, but the
men they affected by the bad condi
tions and their work was very listless.
The golf links were used in order to
keep Rollins Field in good condition.
The coaches were afraid of possible
injuries resulting from scrimmage and
the men were given light signal work.
The links were used until every one
got so wet that further practice was
impossible and the squad was then
taken into the gymnasium.
Lansing, who has been on the scrubs
all year, was given a trial at guard.
He did not show very well and seemed
unfamiliar with his place. Herndon,
the former Rolla end, is getting a
great deal of attention now. He may
be needed in the Nebraska game.
Mills may do all the punting Satur
day. He has been doing all of the
kicking in the secret practice of the
past week, while Shepard has been
running back punts. Mills shows good
form and usually gets the ball away
for more than' forty-five-yards.
At present it seems that Missouri
will be unable to score on Nebraska
with a field goal. Shepard is not good
for a "goal more than once out of four
trials and he is the only man the
coaches have groomed for the position
Tonsilitis is still spreading. Turley.
quarterback, is the latest victim. His
loss will not be felt as much as the
absence of Wiggans and Clay. Both
of these men have been unable to prac,
tice this week and neither will be used
in the game Saturday. Barton seems
to be fully recovered and is playing
his usual good game. Kemper, who
hurt an ankle in the Oklahoma game,
is in playing condition now.
President A. Ross Hill has been
regular visitor at the secret practice
this week. Yesterday he and Isidor
Loeb were out in the rain and mud
following each play down the field.
They both stayed until the practice
was called on account of darkness.
R. W. Scbidpe Will Tell of Labor
Unions Attitude.
"Industrial Education from the
Viewpoint of Organized Labor" will
be the subject of a talk by R. W. Sel
vidge before the mathematical phys
ical section of the Scientific Associa
tion at 7:30 o'clock tomorrow night
iin the physics lecture room of the
Engineering Building.
The discussion is suggested by the
wide interest that is now being taken
ii. the new industrial education and
the rapid developments taking place
in this field. The speaker will dis
cuss the attitude of organized labor
toward industrial education, with the
causes determining this attitude. He
will show the relations which he be
lieves should exist between the labor
unions and the industrial schools.
The lecture is open to the public.
Bad Weather DIseouraared the Usual
Hallowe'en Franks.
On account of the bad weather last
night, the two extra policemen that
were put on for the expected Hallow
e'en celebration were not needed.
There were in all only about thirty
students out. and these stayed out only
about one' hour. There were, of course
a few minor offenses by school boys,
but not of a character to warrant ar
rest. Sueeek by Senator Stone Here.
Senator W. J. Stone spoke at the
Columbia Theater this afternoon. A
good sized crowd was present

Tuesday night at the University audi

from the entire country will be re

versity Missourian will be run from
the local Western Union office to

offices near the auditorium, so that
the cheering will not interfere with
the receiving of the messages. As
soon as any returns are in, the re
ports will be written on glass slides
and thrown on a large screen on the
stage. Boone County returns will
come over the telephone. i
The first reports will probably come
about 7:30 o'clock and others will be
received until 1 o'clock. By midnight,
however, there should be enough re
turns in to show how the election is
A continuous performance is prom
ised. An eight-piece orchestra will
play, and other stunts have been ar
ranged. The total cost of giving out
the returns will amount to about $50.
A small admission, five or ten cents,
will be charged to defray this cost,
and any surplus given to some de
serving student enterprise.
The reason for having the returns
in the auditorium is the unusual in
terest shown by women in the out
come of the election. They can hear
the returns without the discomfort
of standing on the street to watch the
bulletins usually posted. Six states
have woman suffrage, and four others
vote on the question at this election.

charge of arrangements Tuesday
night. All the reports received then
will be published in an early Wednes
day morning edition.
The plan of receiving returns in the
auditorium was tried at the last pres

Colombia Citizens Adopt Resolutions
on Former Vice President.
Resolutions on the death of Vice
President James S. Sherman were
adopted this afternoon by citizens of
Columbia at a meeting following the
address of Senator William J. Stone.
The resolutions say in part:
"We pause in the midst of a stren
uous political campaign to pay a
tribute of respect to one who has
been so highly honored by his state
and by the nation. Mr. Sherman was
a man of sterling integrity, faithful
in the discharge of every duty and
ever ready to give aid to his fellow
countrymen. We hope that the successor of Vice
President Sherman, whether he comes
from one political party or another,
will be a man worthy of the position,
and that he will discharge the duties
of that high office honestly and fear
lessly. "Our sympathies are hereby extend
ed to the family of Mr. Sherman."
Field is Being Carefully Looked Over
By Trustees.
"The members of the Baptist
Church are in no great hurry to
choose a successor to the Rev. W.
Jasper Howell," said J. R. Jordan, one
of the trustee, yesterday. "It is hard
to get a pastor who is satisfactory to
all classes of the members of the
church and for this reason the field
will be looked over carefully before
a final selection is made."
It is probable that someone will be
obtained until a permanent pastor is

Despite Bad Weather, Audi
torium Is Filled to Hear
Huhn Quartet.
Leader's Own Compositions,
"The Divan" and "Un-
fearing" Well Received.
The crowd which practically filled
the University Auditorium last night
to hear the Bruno Huhn Quartet in
the first of the Phi Mu Alpha series
made an appreciative audience. Ap
plause was generously given, and en
cores were frequent. There were al
most no vacant seats to be seen, in
spite of the rain and snow which fell
all evening.
"The Divan," which formed the sec
ond part of the program, is a collec
tion of Oriental verse by Shans al Din
Mohammed Rafiz, a Persian poet of
the fourteenth century. Its presenta
tion last thirty-five minutes offering
solos, duets and quartets.
The music for "The Divan" was
composed by Mr. Huhn himself
Two unavoidable changes were made
in the make-up of the quartet, which
in turn necessitated a change in a
part of the program. Owing to injur
ies received in a recent automobile
accident Miss Corinne Welsh, the con
tralto, was unable to leave New York
and her place was taken by Miss Ma
ble Beddoe, contralto sololist in one
of the largest churches in New York
City. Mr. John Barnes Wells, the
tenor, was prevented by illness from
being present and Mr. Bechtel Alcock,
also a soloist in a New York City
church, was a very efficient substitute
for him.
Gives Impressions of Work of the
Bruno Huhn Quartet Last Night
The following review of the concert
last night is written by Prof. Chester
The first part of the program was
composed of one quartet number and
a number of solos, each member of
the organization contributing one or
more songs. The opening number, a
quartet served to introduce all the
members in a very pleasant manner.
It was without accompaniment and
was charmingly sung. Miss Beddoe,
then sang an area from Samson and
Delilah and showed herself the pos
sessor of an excellent contralto voice,
rich in tone and quite powerful, and
of a dramatic temperament. She is
a young singer of considerable prom
ise. As an encore she gave ".Mammy's
Song" by Harriet Ware.
Mr. Alcock offered as his selections
songs by Homer and Tipton, giving as
an encore Homer's "Banjo Song" with
which David Bispham captured his
audience here last year. Mr. Alcock
sang well and has a very pleasing
Mrs. Goold, the soprano, is a well
known church and concert singer and
is the possessor of a very charming
personality. Her group of songs was
well received and she added as an en
core, "A Little Elfman," by the absent
John Barnes Wells, which was un
doubtedly the hit of the evening. It
was charmingly sung with the neces
sary lightness and archness and was
well adapted to Mrs. Goold's vivacious
Mr. Rogers, who is a seasoned con
cert soloist, was particularly happy
in his first number, Rubinstein's very
exacting "Der Asra." His rendition of
Bruno Huhn's "unfearing," earned him
an encore to which he responded with
Reichardt's "In the Time of Roses,"
which concluded the first half of the
The second half was composed en
tirely of Bruno Huhn's "Divan," a
musical setting of verses by the Per
sian poet, Hafiz. The work is a very
interesting miscellany of quartets,
duos and solos and the singers did
ample justice to it. Perhaps the most
pleasing number of the work was the
second quartet: "Oh! where are deeds
of virtue," etc. The singers sang with
an excellent ensemble, marred only
very occasionally by a slight uncer
tainty and lack of unity.
In general the audience was very
appreciative and the singers them
selves were delighted. One of them
declared that a singer could instantly
tell by the attention which an audi
ence paid whether It was pleased or
not much more than by "the band-

Nebraska Team Is Expected to Arrive
Here Today.
From Charles I Yochum of the
Daily Nebraskan, comes this story of
the Nebraska team:
With the hospital squad growing
smaller each day Cornhusker pros
pects for a victory over Missouri next
Saturday are- growing rosier than
was believed to be possible a week
ago. Harmon, right tackle, is back
in the game again and so is Potter,
the quarter, who had a bone broken
in his ankle. Meyer, the big guard,
who suffered a dislocated shoulder
last week, is getting along nicely, but
it is not likely that he will get into
the Missouri game at all.
Secret practice has been held all
week and Stiehm has been putting
his men through a strenuous scrim
mage. The line is still the big factor
and Stiehm has been busy trying to
find some one to fill Ross' place, be
cause the Tigers will not play against
the negro guard. Martin, who has
been playing end, has been trans
ferred to this position and Mulligan
is playing the end in his place.
The first open practice of the week
was held Wednesday. It was the last
night of scrimmage. Thursday night
will be devoted to signal practice.
The team left Lincoln Thursday night
for Columbia and expect to arrive
there some time Friday. The band
will start down Friday afternoon
and will make themsehes known at
the game Saturday afternoon.
Nebraska is expecting a hard bat
tle with the Tigers, but expect to win
by a small score. The Nebraska scor
ing machine is working nicely, but
the Tigers have picked up consider
able since the Ames game, according
to reports here.

Forty students between the ages of
18 and 23 have enrolled in the men's

The society has promised courses
in penmanship, bookkeeping, cooking
and sewing, but has not been able to

Senator W. J. Stone Praises
University Before Com
mercial Club.
Speakers Urge Adoption of
Educational Amendment
That the University of Missouri has
never had the support it should have
from a state so prosperous and so
populous as this, was the expression
of Senator William J. Stone at the
weekly luncheon of the Commercial
Club at the Virginia Grill today. He
lauded the University and paid a tri
bute to Columbia as a city of pro
gress, culture and beautiful homes.
President A. Ross Hill made an ap
peal for the support of Amendment
Number Nine at the election Tuesday.
T. C. Scruggs also spoke informally
in favor of the amendment. The
president, N. T. Gentry, was author
ized to appoint a committee to be
present at the polls on election day
and call the attention of the voters
to the proposed amendment. Fifty
six men attended the luncheon.
Senator Stone in his address spoke
with special reference to the Univer
sity, Stephens College and Christian
"I am happy to learn that the Uni
versity is so prosperous this year," he
said. "What little education I have
I received in the old building. Noth
ing is left of it now save those classic
pillars, which stand like monuments
of a past greatness and point to a
growing future for the University.
I'm for the University and for any
thing it ought to have and can get
It never has toad what it should have
had from a state so populous and
prosperous as this. I want the Uni
versity to progress until no school in
any state can outrank it as an educa
tional institution. I am glad also for
the prosperity of Christian College
and Stephens College
Senator Stone also spoke of the
rapid growth of Columbia. When he
lived here, he said, it was only a
country village with no railroad. Mr.
Stone was here when the Wabash line
was constructed and made the first
trip over the line to Centralia. Ho
left Columbia in 1SG9.
"Cjolumbia is now a city," he sait
"and you can't find anythwhere a
higher class of citizens. There are
none more progressive, more hospita
ble and kindly."
President Hill in his speech said
that he wished to correct the impres
sion that the University was conduct
ing the campaign favoring the educa
tional amendment. This is in charge
of the state superintendent of educa
tion. The University, however, is
deeply interested in its adoption, he
said. President Hill said that excel
lent reports were coming in from the
country districts where careful cam
paigns have been conducted. He also
spoke of the work done by the Civic
League of St. Louis and of the organ
ization of the alumni of the Univer
sity in the cities of the state to work
for the amendment. He said that very
little campaigning had been done in
Columbia and Boone County and that
the last days should be made to
