Rest and Quiet for a Couple
of Days in Kansas
Tigers Hauled to the Train
by Loyal Rooters
Last Night.
In a family hotel somewhere in
KanBas City today are resting the
eleven or more football players on
whom Missouri students are depend
ing for victorj ovr Kansas. Rest
and quiet, away from admiring
friends and newspaper men, with
light practice will be their lot until
Saturday noon then Lawrence and
the big Anal contest.
The Tigers left for Kansas City last
night. They arrived there at 7 o'clock
this morning. The place where they
are staying has not been made pub
lic. The question at the mass meeting
last night, the final one of the foot
ball season, was by how big a score
the Tigers would beat them. Every
speaker was positive that the Tigers
had the better team and would win.
President Hill said the team work of
the Tigers this year was the best he
had seen. He praised the work of
the team as a machine and said that
while there were no stars every sin
gle Tiger was a real football player.
Doctor Hill urged the Tigers to play
as good in the last half as they did
In the first
J. L. Stephens said that the busi
ness men of Columbia were so inter
ested in the Tigers just now that they
let business go to the winds.
Although "Bobby" Lakenan had
gone on to Kansas and was unable
to lead the cheering the songs and
yells were given with lots of spirit.
After the mass meeting the members
of the team were hauled to the Wa
bash train in a carry-all pulled by
The Tigers and the Jayhawkers
will mix for their twenty-second an
nual contest, on McCook Field at
Lawrence, Kan., next Saturday after
noon. It will be the third game of
the twenty-two to have been played
away from Kansas City and the first
played on Kansas's home field. The
elevens battled on Rollins Field in
Columbia last year and in St. Joseph
in 1907.
The records of the games of other
years show that Kansas University
won the first contest in Kansas City
Thanksgiving Day, 1891. The score
was Kansas 22, Missouri 8. So the
flavor or the battles that followed
seems to have assumed its general
tone from that contest The support
ers of the Crimson and Blue have en
joyed by far the greater prosperity in
The Kansas fishing line shows thir
teen games as the "catch" of its his
tory in gridiron competition with
Missouri. The supporters of the Old
Gold and Black have only four bits
of game, but it is to the credit of tha
Tiger that his pride in the results of
his hunt is great and he has yet to
give up. E'en now with ominous purr
and swish of tail the beast is pre
paring for the Jayhawk with determ
ination to humble the enemy on for

tions between the schools.
Missouri Unhersity Makes Bad Start
LHUe is known of the earliest com
bat between the two schools in 1891.
Er. W. G. Manley's notes on the busi
ness end of the game kept on record
at Rothwell Gymnasium show simply
the score Kansas 22, Missouri 10.
Some other records show the score
as Kansas 22. Missouri 8. Either way,
Missouri was Badly overwhelmed.
The following years, 1892. saw a sec
ond defeat for the Tigers by the score
of 12 to 4.
Supporters of the Old Gold and
Black defeated Kansas the following
year. An odd coincidence Is the fact
that the score was simply reversed
from that of the year before. Kansas
4, Missouri 12.
In 1894 315 rooters went to Kansas
City from Columbia and saw the
Tigers again defeated by the red and
blue peril from Kansas. The score
was Kansas 18. Missouri 12. Then
the Tigers revived and defeated Kan
sas in the battle of '95. Nearly six
thousand people saw the contest,
among them 30S rooters from Colum
bia. The field was very muddy and

caused many a mishap to well
planned plays. Outland, a swift back
of the Kansas team, broke away early
in the game and ran the length of
the field but was downed before he
crossed the goal line. Then the Tig
ers held, but Outland again got away
for a long run later in the game, fol
lowed by a 25-yard gain by Crooks
and Kansas scored a touchdown, tieing
the score or Missouri. The Tigers
scored a field goal even though the
mire was so bad players could hardly
keep their feet. The latter -score in
the second half won the game. The
score was Missouri 10, Kansas 6.
The rollowing year brought again a
very muddy field and a warm day.
But after the game started, the tem
perature dropped forty degrees in an
hour Dr. Manly comments in his
record, "Our team was outclassed by
K. U.'s big, heavy, strong men. Ad
Hill (Adam Hill, captain and star of
the Tigers for two years), sprained
his ankle in practice before the game
and could not play." So Missouri was
defeated by the score or 30 to 0. "A
clean game well umpired" is Dr.
Manly's note on the dereat of the
Tigers in 1S97 by the score. 16 to 0.
Defeated Yet Victorious in 1)8.
The contest of '9S was a defeat and
yet a victory for Missouri. The com
ment of all. even of the Kansas City
Star, after the game, was that Mis
souri played by far the best game. It
was a very bad day. The field was
covered with snow and the lines of
the field were marked by charcoal
over the snow. One touchdown was
earned by the Jayhawk, but the other
resulted from a flunke, which, had it
been reversed, might have tied the
score and later led to victory, as the
Tiger seemed to have the drop in the
quality of playing.
Hard luck characterized the Mis
souri defeat of 1899, by the score of
34 to 6. The whole team from Mis
souri was in very poor physical con
dition that year. McAlester of Mis
souri suffered a broken leg.
A Tie and a Victory Opens Century
for M. U.
The following year, 1900, the Tig
ers "came back," and the thundering
of the "Rock Chalks" of Kansas be
came faint on Thanksgiving after
noon at Exposition Park. Missouri
raced the ball to a touchdown after
five minutes of play. In hurry-up
style, the Tigers lined up again and
rushed the ball to the 4-yard line, but
Kansas held and the ball was for
feited on downs. The Tigers fought
furiously and at one time Washer of
Missouri ran 55 yards to the 3-yard
line before he was downed. But Mis
souri could not pierce the Kansas
line. Kansas rushed the ball down
the field a short distance and then
Quigley of Kansas ran 65 yards to the
touchdown that tied the score late in
the contest. Six to six was the final
The Kansans of 1901 outweighed
Missouri about ten pounds. Missouri's
speedy players suffered the Jayhawk
to land a touchdown early in the
game. Then the Tigers rushed the
ball over the line three times, but al
lowed Kansas to tally once again,
making the score 18 to 12 for M. U.
The victory of 1902 went to Kansas
by the score 17 to 5. Ellis of "Missouri
tied the score in the first half by a
14-yard run to a touchdown, 5 to 5.
But Kansas raced away merrily after
the next period, scoring twice before
the referee's whistle stopped play.
The 1903 Kansas victory was an
other of those peculiar contests the
two schools so often have. The Tigers
appeared as strong as Kansas and
held the latter on the 4-yard line. And
so the rooters were praying for the
end of the second half and a 0 to 0
score, but Just two minutes before
the end of the game, the great Pooler
of Kansas droppedback a yard and
booted the oval across the bar in a
kick from placement, making the

Rifle Brought Trouble
Columbia Boy Bird
Officer Arrests 'Lad Who Was
Firing at Birds Tears
Save Him.
Johnny Johnson got the surprise of
his life yesterday afternoon when he
was caught shooting birds and pig
eons In the back yard of J. W. Cole
man, 109 South Fifth street, with a
22-caliber rifle.
Johnny didn't mean any harm. He
was 'jes shootin' at birds'. He didn't
know anything about city laws, coun
ty laws and such things. But the
"strong arm" of one of the law offi
cers reached out and caught the boy
by the shoulder. The boys lips began
to quiver, then came tears and a real
cry. He learned then a big, solemn
truth: "Ignorance of the law is no
Johnny cried and cried and begged
to bs turned loose. He argued that
he did not know it was wrong to
shoot a rifle in the city limits. He
was taken to the police station, his
rifle was taken from him and, so the
officers told him, he must go to jail.
That was the last straw. He cried
in earnest then.
The residents of Fifth street have
been worried over the way Johnny
Johnson has been hunting with a rifle
in their back yards. Last winter
someone shot a hole through Mr.
Coleman's window. So yesterday
when the young hunter started out
after pigeons and birds the police
were notified. They had little trouble
in catching the hoy unawares.
But it was only meant as a scare.
Through the kindness of Mr. Coleman.
Johnny was freed after a promise to
be good in the future.
"Boys will be boys," smiled Mr.
Coleman as he asked that Johnny be
turned loose without prosecution.
It was quite a while before Johnny

the Y. M. C. A., said today:
"Heretofore we have always held
the annual complimentary dinner
Thanksgiving night but owing to
there being no vacation this year the
dinner at this time would be imprac
tical. We want to get the names of
all the men who are expecting to be
here during the holidays as soon as
possible so that we" will know how
many to count on at the dinners."
Average Flock Determined From Re

The average flock of chickens on
Missouri farms numbers about 200,
according to the information gathered
from the students in the short course

Business Men Hear of

Toll of the Disease Each Year
Over the Country is
Dr. W. J. Calvert, professor of pre
ventive medicine in the University,
told the Commercial Club today how
vaccination would reduce the number
or cases of typhoid fever 90 per
cent He gave a short history of vac
cination for the prevention of this
disease and or how it is now being
successfully used in all the armies of
the civilized world.
"In every community one or two
persons die each year of typhoid
fever," said Doctor Calvert. "As the
value of a human life is estimated
from 15,000 to $7,000 this makes a
very heavy tax on the community. It
has been thoroughly proved than vac
cination will reduce the number of
cases of typhoid fever fully 90
per cent and the number of deaths
50 per cent. Out of the 12,000 sol
diers, or one-seventh of the United
States army, that were vaccinated,
but five cases and no deaths occurred
from typhoid fever In the remaining

after each down. The University Missourian will
have a special wire for its own use from the Lawrence
field direct to the auditorium. There will be news from
the game every minute. It will give you the news of the
crowd, the rooting, and the progress of the game play by

ATCH for
six-sevenths that were not vaccinat
ed, there were 418 cases and thirty
two deaths.
Doctor Calvert said that there were
300,000 cases of typhoid fever in this
country every year and 30,000 deaths.
The cost, he said, is estimated at
three hundred million dollars.
Dr. James Gordon spoke of the dif
ficulty of getting sanitation and
health laws enforced. He said every
one was perfectly willing to have
these laws enforced against their
neighbors but not against themselves.
"Cuba and the Panama Canal zone
are models of what can be done by
strict snitation," said Doctor Gordon.
"They show what really can be done
where the laws can be enforced. But
where the people are out of sympa
thy with the laws, as they seem to be
with health laws in ordinary com
munities, disease cannot be eliminat
ed." Dr. Henry F. Cope spoke of the
Commercial Club today on the mis
sion of education In life. Doctor
Coke declared that education alone,
that is mere book learning, was not

Assembly Speaker Defines It
as Development of a Person
for His Work.
Many Are Pushed Into Their
Vocations by Hunger,
Not Called.
The old informational idea in edu
cation, the attempt to pack an empty
mind with facts, has passed away,
according to Dr. Henry F. Cope, who
spoke at Assembly this morning on
"Religion in Education."
"My definition of education would
be," he said, "that it should be a de
velopment of the whole of a person
into ail of his universe and for all
of his work." A person cannot lower
one level of the life without letting
down all along the line, he believes.
"We have come to think of man as
a unity," continued Mr. Cope. "He is
like an apartment building. No man
can live in a place of this sort to
himself alone. If one family has cab
bage for dinner, the others partici
pate. So it is with the individual.
He is not a three-story arrangement,
with mind, body and soul as three
separate compartments, but all are
Interwoven. The demand we make of
education is that it develop a person
into the fullness of his personality.'
Mr. Cope's idea is that we have
been working largely in terms of
things, not of persons. But things
should be only a part of a machine
and its chief business is to make peo
ple. The personal test is the prime
test to be applied to the work of an
institution. It should not give infor
mation without teaching how to live.
"With most people," says Mr. Cope.
"prepa'-Uion for a vocation is not in
answer to a call, but to a push the
push of hunger. He goes out only to
succeed, to get a 'cinch' on society.
The true ideal of a vocation should
be in terms of a man's chance to work
with a larger efficiency for the social
whole. It should be an Interpreta
tion of life in terms of real meaning
and adequate service."
