FATHERS TO WAR,
, CHILOBENTO WORK
New York Feels Depress
ing Effect of Europe's
AID FUNDS LACKING
Many Pathetic Cases Appear-Daily
Labor Bureau. ,
4 Uy United Press.
NEW YORK, Nov. 5. A new un
expected and depressing effect of Eu
rope's great war is making itselt
felt in New Yorkand probably
many other American cities.
Children girls and boys ot 14
and 15 are today being sent to
work where yesterday they were
feeing sent to school. With their
Withers and brother having been
called to the colors by their natives
countries, these children are now
forced to work In order that the
mother and other litUe ones do
not starve. The few paltry dollars
they earn each week helps to keep
the wolf away from the door.
How noticeable is the increase in
the number of children seeking
work this fall is shown by a visit to
the child labor bureau of the Board
of Health. Before a boy or girl un
der sixteen years of. age can work
in New York they, must get. a, cer
tificate from this bureau,, permit
ting them to do so.
For the past three or four weeks
a line of children sometimes half
,k- a block long has been waiting at
this office every day, seeking per
mits to find employment Such a
condition has never before existed,
the officials say, and they declare
that in eight out of ten cases the
children say they are forced to
seek work because their father has
one to the war In Europe.
VOne of the most pathetic fea
urnes of the situation Is the with
holding of funds formerly cheerfully
given to a committee which permit
ted many children like those seek
ing work now to stay in school.
Formerly many wealthy people
gave freely to this committee and
the funds were used to keep chil
dren who applied for permits in
school. If the child said that he
was forced to work In order to
help support a family the commit
tee saw to it that the family got
each week what the child would
have earned and thus kept the
youngsters in school.

UNIVERSITY MISSOURIAN, TBCTtSBAY, NOVEMBER 5, 19
The Tigers played both Drake
and Kansas yesterday afternoon.
UKing on both squads of the scrubs
trained in the formations of the re
spective schools. Two touch
downs were made against Drake
and one against Kansas. No scores
were registered against the Varsi
ty. Much of the practice preceding
the scrimmage .was in forward
passing and in punting. Lake and
Dunckel made the throws, which
were all for considerable distances.
Relays of ends were tried out on
Then there was a bit ot signal
running, with "Chuck" Wilson act
ing as fullback for one of the
Finally the Tigers took on Drake
for a little while. Rutledge was at
quarter for the Varsity, with a
backfleld composed of Wikoff,
Dunckel and Savage. The kick-off
was made to Drake,, but after a few
plays the Varsity took the ball and
Rutledge went over for a touch
down. No attempt was made to
Wikoff was given plenty of exer
cise carrying the ball and pulling
off some startling runs. The scrubs
found him especially hard to stop.
The second touchdown was made
by Savage on a 20-yard plunge
through the line.
Six Points More
Then the Drake team was re
leased and Kansas was called on
the field. By this time Captain
Clay was in at tackle for the first
Kansas took the ball on the kick
off and, using a shift play, made
some good gains through the Var
sity. Finally, however, it was nec
essary to punt
Wikoff was called upon again to
do some work and managed to car
ry the ball to within striking dis
tance of the goal. Wyatt, play
ing quarter, then reeled off a long
end run for a touchdown.
This scoring ended the scrim
mage. Tigers LeaTe for
Des Moines Tonight.
Both Schulte and brewer were
out In uniform yesterday. The di
rector of athletics took the ball
away from his punters and showed
them how to do it, toeing a num
ber of excellent spirals.
Shepard and Lake 'did not get in
the scrimmage. The former spent
the time trying drop kicks from
near the middle of the field, while
the latter booted short place kicks.
Collins and Graves were the ab
sentees yesterday. The Varsity
qurterback was on the sidelines In
street clothes but expects to be in
condition to play Saturday.
Graves will be forced to lay off
another week, at least
On the whole, the team is in good
physical condition for Saturday's
game against Drake.
The Tigers, probably eighteen of
them, will leave for Des Moines at
9 o'clock tonight A sleeper will
be hooked onto the train, right here
in Columbia. The same arrange
ment will .be made on the return
trip Saturday night The team
will reach Columbia at 8 o'clock
Drake and Missouri
Almost Eienly Matched.
The Tigers have played two Con
ference games this fall, losing to
Ames 6 to 0 and winning from the
Kansas Aggies 13 to 3. Drake also
has met two Conference schools,
losing to Kansas 33 to 7 and tie
Ing Washington 7 to 7.
Drake has been the only team
except Oklahoma to make a touch
down on Kansas this year. This
score was made by Sherer, the
sprinting halfback, whom Profes
sor Brewer characterizes as "a
tremendously dangerous man, a
shifty open-field runner."
The Bulldogs and the Tigers are
pretty evenly matched in weight
and experience. Each has about
the same number of old men on
the team and the same percentage
of beginners. The Des Moines team,
It is said, averages about 180
pounds from tackle to tackle. This
presages a good heavy line, with
light ends and light backs, which
is much the same combination that
Missouri will present Saturday.
Drake Hasnt Won
Since 1903 Game.
Drake, however, hasn't beat Mis
souri at football since 1903, al
though the Northerners used to lick
the Tigers pretty regularly before
The first game was played in
1899, when Missouri had an excep
tionally good team. ThlTscore was
11 to 0 In faWEefcDrake. The sec
ond game, In 1901. was another
Drake victory by 24 to 0. The
The third, in 1903, went the same
way, -17 to 0.
No games -.were-played for, five
.years. Then, In 1908, the Tigers
won 11 to.8. Theyrepeated in 1909,
counting 22 to Drake's 6. Then
there was a vacationfor two years.
The 1912 game wnt 17 to 14 in
favor of Missouri. JLast year the
count was 10 to 0, with McWilllams
making all the Tigers' points after
one of the hardest battles ever Been
on the local gridiron.

Some years ago Mr. Irion, whose
home is at Mexico, Mo., became in
terested in Esperanto, the univer

cards and letters with other Esper

Becker of Mainz, Germany.
Both Sergent and Becker left for
the front with their regiments when
war was declared. Mr. Irion has
heard nothing from Sergent but re
ceived a postcard from Becker Sat
urday. It was mailed from Couvrot, on
the Marne river, In France on Sep
tember 18. It lias no stamp. In
stead, in the upper right-hand cor
ner, is written: "Postage to be paid
by the recipient" It was mailed at
the "feldpost," or regimental post
office. Becker says that he is well and
has had many Interesting experi
ences of which he will write when
the war Is over. The rigorous cen
sorship prevented him from telling
any details of army life, or even
mentioning what engagements he
has been In. He is a member of the
crack German cavalry regiment, the
Koenig's. Dragoner" or the king's
dragoons. Sergent is a non-commissioned
officer In the 130th regi
