Post mortem dope on the Hvcst team
that ever graced the green for Mis
souri is now in order. The main top
ic in the obituary conversation is why
the final game was lost. Over-confidence
is the cause of the eleventh
hour slump of the Tigers, according to
some of the wiseacres, but Director C.
U Brewer is springing an unexpected
play by saying that they're all wrong.
It was just the other way, according
to the coach. The Tigers were on
edge toward the end of the schedule,
under the strain of carrying the clean
record- and the anxiety to finish with
faultless percentage was too much.
A break was imminent, and came near
popping up in Friday's game with
, "I could see that the boys were un
der a great strain in the first game,
and I felt lucky that they won; but I
was not surprised when Kansas got
away with the final game," the coach
Season Hi-.sl in All
3L r. llaball History.
The season just closed presents the
best record in Missouri's baseball his
tory. Sixteen games were won, and
only one was lost. Last year two
games were lost out of eighteen play
ed, making thirty-two victories out of
thirty-five games in the last two sea
sons. Speaking of the advent of the hard
luck god in the messing up of an other
wise brilliant record, consider the case
of one Dennis of the Tiger aggrega
tion. Dennis, who plays the position
where ground balls make the chief
item on the bill of fare, played seven
teen consecutive games and gobbled in
the bouncers just as they came, with
outlctting a single on of them slip
over on his bib. He was smacking
his lips for more in the final game with
Kansas, and then the jinx dropped a
fly in the ointment, if the mixed meta
phor may be permitted. Worse things
than mixed metaphors have been said
concerning the costly error.
Slushcr leads with runs and bases
on balls. He has crossed the home
plate a total of twenty-one times dur
ing the season, and has taken advan
tage of twelve free passes to first ibasc.
Owens leads with sacrifice hits, total
ing eight for the season, and Dennis
takes the prize for stealing thirteen
SU Tipers on Present Team
ffill Return Next Year.
Barring the fortunes of war, 'which
literally figure in sport prospects from
now on .there will be six Tigers back
on the baseball team next year. Un
less Missourians are busy tossing hand
grenades somewhere In France next
year, Slusher, Morris, Dennis, Giltner,
Stemmons and Dippold will be 'back
for one more year. Captain McMil
lan, Farmer, Owens and Morgan have
had their allotted three years of Var
sity ball, so they are out of the run
ning for next year's team. Rutledge
has had only one year with the Tigers,
but he will be graduated. Stemmons
is the only sophomore on the team.

the progress that his first squad made
in its drilling, and Mr. Darr has been
made a corporal.
Mr. Ladensohn writes to a friend in
Columbia that when they first arrived
at Fort Riley they had to wash win
dows, scrub and clean up the bar
racks. They get up at 5 o'clock in the
morning and have to make their own
beds. Now- they are paying $5 a month
for the meals and waiters, and this
additional money gets them better
food. Vaccination and inoculation
have made some of them a bit sick,
but the worst of that is over.
"The men are all good fellows," says
Mr. Iadensohn, "and my captain, who
wears his hat with the strap under
his chin, is about the best-looking man
I ever saw. We are only a short dis
tance from Junction City, and you can
go over in automobile for 10 cents.

With "Old Sol" beating down at the

The following is a letter received
from Francis W. Osborne, a former
student in the School of Journalism:
"I thought I would write you a lit
tle story of the life at the Officers'
Training Camp at Fort Riley. They
changed the name of the camp to the
United States Training Camp and we
all wear buttons on our shirt collars,
or in the evening when we wear
blouses, with the U. S. T. C. on them.
Captain King Was Right."
"When Captain King said we would
all have hard work to do he certainly
told the truth. Every man who sticks
through the camp will be in fine physi
cal condition. The first morning after
we arrived, each man had to get up at
5:15 o'clock and report at regular for
mation at 5:25 o'clock. Then he re
turns to the squad room and makes
up his bed, folding each blanket and
sheet and placing them in prescribed
order. He then sweeps out from under
his cot and once a week scrubs his
portion of the floor. Nothing can be
kept on or under the beds during the
day or it will foe collected and placed
in the "Lucky Bag," and the contents
sold at the end of the month to help
the company fund.
"At 5:55 o'clock the mess or "chow"
call is sounded and the men fall in
line for breakfast. After breakfast
the company goes through physical
drills for a half hour, and then drills
in the school of the soldier, squad and
platoon movements. From 9:30 until
11 o'clock the company has a confer
ence on different parts of the drill reg
ulations, interior guard manual, rifle
sighting and we are told how to take
care of the rifles and equipment. In
the afternoon rifle sighting is practiced
and at 2:20 the company starts on a
