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 Kansas. , "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 said today. 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 bases. 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. Baseball Men to Elect Captain at llrewer's Home. Members of the 1917 Tiger baseball team will be entertained by C L. Brewer, director of athletics, at his home tomorrow evening. The captain for next year's team will be elected. Dippold, Slusher and Giltner are all two-year men and are the most likely candidates for the leadership of the 1918 Missouri team. Talley Tennis Tournament To Be Friday anil Saturday. The Missouri valley tennis tourna ment will be held at Manhattan, Kan. next Vridaj- and Saturday. Newell and Warner, the most dependable rac queteers of the Tiger squad will rep resent the University of Missouri. Ac cording to Director C. L. Brewer, Mis souri and Kansas look like the strong est entries. Each entrant will be lim ited to three men. The Missouri men JH play .both in the singles and doubles. The complete list of entries 38 jet have not been sent to Missouri. The University of Kansas and the Kan sas Aggios will have teams entered. The scoring of the tournament will 06 by points. The individual getting t!ie most number of points will re wive a trophy, as Trill the school a' Wiring the highest number of points, e runner-up in each will receive a trophy. The winner in each set of finals will be scored three points. The team that k eliminated at the semi-finals will receive two points, and the team that 8tys through the preliminaries only Hl receive one point Kansas has a strong entry in Ken eth Uhls, who defeated Newell, the Tiger entry, in a dual meet between the two schools here last week. Only Three Schools Will Compete in Tennis Meet. Only three schools Missouri, Kansas and Kansas Aggies, have entered in the Missouri Valley Tennis Tourna ment scheduled for next Friday and Saturday at Manhattan. Director C. L. Brewer this morning said that it is possible that the tournament will .be canceled owing to the small number of school competing. If the athletic directors of Kansas and Kansas Aggies decide to hold the meet, Newell and Warner will represent Tlgerdom in both the doubles and singles. .' Yale Captains Would Be Marines.

Jr. U. MEN PROMOTED AT RILEY Ladensolin and Darr, Cadet Officers, Now Training Camp Corporals. WJien the training camp was first opened at Fort Riley, Kan., Sam Lad ensolin, who was a captain in the Mil itary School here, was made a corpor al, and Francis Darr, cadet colonel. here- was the third man in his squad. Mr. Ladensohn, however, Is now in. charge of another squad because of 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. Although you can't buy cigarettes in Kansas, we can get all we want, be cause Fort Riley is under the Feder al Government and not that of Kan sas." Patriotic May Fete at Christian. Patriotism will be the keynote in the May fete at Christian College com mencement week. More than fifty historical characters from Columbus to President Wilson will appear in the pageant, "America," to be given on the college campus.

The pag eant was written toy Mrs. Marion W. Kertig, assistant professor of history, and will foe produced under her direc tion. One hundred and seventy-five college girls will take part. C. A. Helm Organizes Vernon Connty. . C. A. Helm of the agricultural ex tensionservice has returned from Ver non County, where he has completed the organization of the farmers of the county into a co-operative club.

FIRST CALL AT 5:15 Old Rivalry Between Mis-' souri and Kansas Exists at Fort Riley. With "Old Sol" beating down at the rate of about 90 degrees, the Univer sity of Missouri boys attending the U. S. Training Camp at Fort Riley started on their three months' course of in tensive training, most of the men are standing the stiff workout and the high temperature exceedingly well. The stiffness that follows such unac customed exercise is gradually dis appearing and the men are really en joying themselves. 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 hike, which is the biggest part of the day's work. Men Hike an Hour ETery Day.
