NORMALS DEFEAT JACKSOIt 19 TO 7 Courleux Saya However, Men Plajed Loose Football. His The Cape Xormal football men yes terday afternoon learned how much work is in store for them in order to whip themselves into shape to make a real team as they defeated the Jackson High School eleven by a score of 10 to 7. The Cape boys played loosely and won simply by dint of beef and the ability to hit the line. Coach Cour leaux of the Xormal aggregation last night expressed himself about his team and said that his men have much work ahead of them. The veterans of last season did not play as thye should have, he said, and the green men in the line showed many of the weak places. The Cape men did not tackle well, but rather threw their opponents down with their heavier weight. The Jackson aggregation really out played the Cape boys, Courlcaux stated. The Cape received the kick olf, and on the first play that was run thereafter, a fumble resulted in a re covery by the Jackson men. The Jack son players then pulled off several quid: line-smashes at the left side of the line where now men were trying for position.'?, and a short time after the opening of the game, Jackson had scored a touchdown, T ' Cape braced and began to score. The lirst touchdown was the result of line smashes and the second touch down followed the most brilliant p'ay of ontirc pame It was a forward pass pulled off by Fullback Parker and left halfback Dudley. The ball had just been re ceived oa the kkkoff by the Cape team. Parker dropped back of his line and shot the bail to the waiting halfback. i Dudley dodged a couple Jackson men and ran 70 yards for a touchdown. The third touchdown made by the Cape team was the result of line .-.mashes again. The Cape kicked but on- goal after a toiuhdown. The lineup of the Cape team was as follows: Farrar. center. Bartels, rifcht experienced naUback. proven to ie tne Cape's most consistent ground gainer yesterday. The next game that will he played will be with the St. Louis University at St. Louis, a week from Friday. Other games probably will be sched uled with Christian Brothers College of St. Louis, McKcr.dree College and Carbondale Xormal School of Illinois. LAD WHO RAN OFF TO WAR RETURNING Lester Ilousam, 16, is Freed from Canadian Armj by Father's Efforts. Lester Housam, 16 years old, for merly a Capo boy who recently ran away from his home in St. Louis to join the Canadian army for service in Europe, has gained his freedom and is on his way home, according to a message that was received in the Cape yesterday by the boy's relatives here. The Housam boy is a nephew of Louis Housam of 1017 South Sprigg street, and a nephew of Mrs. Mary Gardner of Xorth .Main street. He was crossed in his desire to join the United States Army by his father, Clem Housam, a poultry man in St. Louis, who until five years ago lived in the Cape. The father refused to grant his son permission to join the army, so a short time ago, the boy succeeded in getting away and before anything was learned of his where abouts, he had succeeded in getting in to the Canadian army. . He communicated with his father after his enlistment appealing to him to obtain his discharge before he was shipped to the front. The father set about doing that and he had much dif ficulty in establishing the boy's birth record at the Cape to prove his Amer ican citizenship. The message that was received in the Cane was directed yesterdav to Mrs. Gardner and it said that the boy would be home in St. Louis in a few more days, indicating that he is free of the army. Louis Housam last night declared that he has another brother, Philip Housam, who joined the army in 1893 to go to war at the Philippines. Since he joined the army then, nothing ever has been heard from him, and the LI Hons; ,ms do not know if he is dead or livfc ELKS WILL FRDLIC TOMORROW NIGHT Humbug Circus Will Bring Lodge's Best Animals into the Arena.

Gardner made a vigorous de fense of his proposed land bank, which has been attacked by former Judge Henry Lamm, Republican candidate for Governor, as unnecessary and in efficient. Gardner asserted Judge Lamm's opinions of the land bank bill evident ly were political opinions, made for po litical purposes and not based upon facts. The most serious charge made bv Judge T.nmm against the land bank bill is that if it should he validated by con stitutional nmendment. it never could re mnon!'(I or rennlrd rvi-ent )w tin. ! other constitutional amendment.

Wilier, the Cape's dean of Justices of the Peace and a veteran in that position of 25 years experience, has qualified as an expert peach grow er. He has a troe i his backyard at his home on the corner of Good Hope and Middle streets which bears, fruit of gigantic proportions. The Judge yes terday afternoon exhibited one peach which he had picked that measured II inches in circumference and it was virtually perfert in shape and color- The tree bore more than a half bushel of peaches which the Judge gathered yesterday. Scarcely one of the peaches was as small as the ordi nary sized peach and each was about as large as two or three put together. They were freestone and had a white meat that was exceedingly juicy and delicious. Judge Wilier said that he gave no particular attention to the tree while it was growing and he said that as a matter of fact, the record-breaking yield was the tree own fault rather than that of his expert culture of the plant. He declared that last year, he had a mess of extra large peaches, but they were grown on another tree. EDWARD BEEVE WILL QUIT POLICE FORCE !
