WILDER OUTPUNTS LANG, TEXAS STAR 6,000 Rooters See a Hard Fought Homecoming Game Stankowski Makes Spec tacular 38-Yard Run. Clarence B. Peeples a Columbia boy is Missouri's gridiron hero to day. For all of three quarters and part of the fourth, eleven Texas football players and eleven Missouri football players battled to a standstill, no man on either team being strong enough to put over the points needed for a victory. In the fourth, Peeples went into the game for one play and, stand ing on the twenty-five yard line, boot ed the pigskin between the goal posts for the three points that won the game. Six thousand spectators at this homecoming game had been waiting anxiously for the very situation that gave Peeples the chance to win the game, and six thousand spectators held their breath while the carefully placed ball left Peeples' right foot and went slowly toward the cross bars. It seemed to be low and to one side, but it easily carried to the left up right, hit it and bounded on through for a goal, while the crowd went wild, and the players, now certain of vic tory, after fighting vainly for fifty minutes, hugged each other and danced around the field. v It was an ideal ending to the big homecoming game, for after that the Texans could do nothing against the rejuvenated Missouri eleven. And Peeples, whose right foot could do tricks with the leather oval, was the hero. Straight Football Used. The game Itself was lacking in thrills but was full of straight, hard fought football. The Tigers outplayed their southern opponents for two thirds of the game and outlucked them at almost every stage of the contest. The score probably represents very nearly the relative strength of the two teams, for the playing was in Texas territory nearly all of the time. The Texans never seriously menaced the Missouri goal line, while the Tigers In the middle of the second quarter. worked the ball within five yards of the last chalk mark, and several other times were within striking dis tance. In the first two minutes of play, a penalty for holding and a hurried punt, which went outside before It had carried ten yards, put the Texans on the defensive near their own goal; but after Bass missed a place kick, Van Gent's men came back strong and the playing was in Missouri territory for the rest of the quarter. The men from the South gained nearly half of their total yardage in this period, while the Tiger backfield were unable to get under way and had to rely on Wllder's steady punting to keep them out of danger. Schulte's light backfield got start ed In the second quarter and worked the ball down to the five-yard line, only to lose it when Hamilton's pass to Stankowski on attempted place kick went wrong. The Tiger linemen also got their bearings In this period and opened up immense holes in the Long horn defense. Dittmar was the biggest factor in the Texas Line, though Ham Hton fought his more experienced op ponent almost to a standstill. Becomes Punting Duel. The Tigers also held the advantage In the third period, but neither team was making much yardage, both re- sportlng to the punUng game. The duel between Lang and Wilder was a big feature of the game, and though the Texan's boots were longer at umes, Wilder's steadiness gave him the edge on his flashier opponent Lang booted out of bounds twice when near the side lines and one of these cost Texas the game. The break came early in the fourth Period when Lang's high punt went out of bounds after carrying only seven yards.

OLD GRADS ANJ) STUDENTS MINGLE AT UNION BUILDING The "old grads" came back to the school in which they once went to classes. And they came back in num bers unprecedented. It was the big gest homecoming day yesterday Missouri has ever had, with the excep tion of biannual gatherings for the Tiger-Jayhawk battles. In off years, homecoming day does not assume the proportions which yesterday it took on. Hundreds of alumni poured into Columbia to see the Tigers dehorn the Texas steers and also to get back into the atmosphere of their college days. From the parade of classes in the morning to the time-honored shirt tail parade and barbecue at night, it was a day of festivities. Graduate3 and students mingled at the Missouri Union in a way that indicated the great bond which is to unite all Mis souri people. The day was eventful in for nothing more than the dedica tion of Missouri Union Building. It was made more eventful for the alum ni when the Tigers in the 'afternoon displayed the fighting of "Old Mizrou" in roping the Longhorn. Stories of the Old Days. The Missouri Union Building was the center of the celebration for the alumni. Beginning with the smoker Friday night, they sat in the build ing meeting old friends and class mates and telling stories of the days "when I was here." More than 350 were in the building, and many joined the organization. "The alumni are behind the Union strong," H. H. Kinyon, secretary, said last night. "They are surprised at its remarkable progress in the one month of its existence and are behind it solidly for the $250,000 building. The parade left the Rothwell Gym nasium at 10:30 o'clock yesterday morning representing the classes of the University both in the present and in the past. The line of march was four blocks long. Following the band and the cadet corps, former President Jesse and E. W. Stephens represented the class of '67. Then came the M men, and the departments of the Uni versity. For the first time in the his tory of the school, the University women marched in a body. The stu dents of the College of Agriculture lead a Texas Longhorn in the real. The parade disbanded In front of the Missouri Union Building. Sam Sparrow Speaks. Hundreds or students, alumni, mem bers of the faculty and visitors stood before the Missouri Union Building when Sam Sparrow, '93, of Kansas City, a member of the Board of Cu rators, stepped to the front of the porch of the building and introduced the Rev. Charles C. Grimes, who gave the invocation. "The Missouri Union is destined to be the most dominant force In the upbuilding of the University," Mr. Sparrow said following the invocation. "Conceived and Inaugurated last spring, the movement has grown unUl now we have this temporary home and are well on the way to the great er building of the future." n Introducing E. W. Stephens, the dedicatory speaker, Mr. Sparrow spoke of him as one of the Univer sity's most loyal and devoted alumni, both as a member of the Board of Cu rators and a citizen in private life. "After the spirit that has been Photograph by M. T. Kose, Mlssourlan rhotographer of the Student Union Building Yesterday. Insert: E. W. Stephens Making the University today,"' Mr. Step'ons said, "if we don't beat the Texas Long horns, I shall haveWmove out of the state. AltEbugh a member of the stu dent body more than fifty years ago, I have not lost that spirit for which Missouri has always stood. The Mis souri Union is an exemplification of Uiat spirit By the dedication of the Union Building we are marching on to a greater glory for Missouri. It is an institution born of the heart It will be a home for all MIssourians. "It will give to Missouri a wider democracy. The co-operation will manifest itself in the union of the alumni and students and in the final cementing of the student body. Here- Ytofire-the' schooVhas been'dTrided into clubs, fraternities and sororities. They arc all for the good of the Univer sity, and I wish that we had more of them. But now the engineer will know the farmer, the medic, the lawyer, and we will also know the domestic sci ence students, for they are to have a place in this great union. Union Aids Democracy. "What the Michigan Union is and will be to the University of Michigan, the Missouri Union will be to Mis souri. We are following the other great universities. The Union is to keep us of the alumni young. Its benefit to the student will be that of association not only with their classmates but with the members of the faculty as we Jiad in the days of the past when there were only eight or ten in each class. "The University is not a department store at which to purchase knowledge but an institution of the heart as well as the intellect The martyrs at Ox ford as they were burned at the stake said with their last breath they they were lighting a fire which would never go out; so we too, are starting here a fire of love that will be in extinguishable. "And now in dedicating this, the Missouri Union Building, we are erect ing a temple of love. We are forming a union that will be one of the great est powers for good in the state of Missouri." Following the dedicatory address, a letter was read from the Missouri alumni at Harvard. LONGHORHJS EATEN! Students and Alumni Cele brate Tiger Victory With Big Barbecue.

By United Press LONDON, Nov. 4. Three hundred persons are believed to have perished in the sinking of the small steamers Connemara and Retriver after a col lision on the Irish Sea last night Only one survivor is reported thus far. A man named Boyle, a member of the Retriver's crew, miraculously escaped death. He brought back the story of the greatest sea disaster since the sinking of the Lusitania and prevented the disappearance of the two ships with their passengers and crews from becoming an untold mys tery. Only fragmentary reports of the disaster had reached London this .eve ning. The Connemara was carrying fifty one passengers. So far as is known here none of them was an American. Leaving Greenraore, the ferry steamer ran into the teeth of a violent gale. Plunging along through the darkness and storm the smaller Re triver, Inbound, crashed into the Con nemara. Whether the Retriver carried passengers is not known. The first bodies were washed up along the County Down coast just north of Carlingford, Lough. At the office of the London and Northwest ern It was feared that excepting Boyle every man on both vessels perished. Forty-three bodies of the victims of the collision between the English steamers, Connemara and Retriver, off the Irish coast were washed ashore at Kilkeel. A hurricane prevented the launch ing of boats. William Boyle was the one survivor. KATES TO LAWBEXCE OBTAINED Round Trip for Mlssouri-Kansas Gaae Thanks&hlng Is .
