The men report ad In street attire, and while there was a football incidence, only three or four indulge in forward passing amid the uncertain shad ows, punctured here 'and there by a cluster or smau mawjas. . AU local players, augmented by Herb Sies, Waddy Knehl arid other former Daren port and Mollne stars, were on hand to slip "Rube" the mlt of reception. The little sqnad clustered around the home plate on the diamond to hear from Man ager Flanlgaa, while 200 rallbirds occupied the stand and bleachers; thus, a new championship ambition was born. BabeT OptlaJstfe. Ursella met all his old mates with characteristic calm, although his handshakes could not be mis , Interpreted. He had practically nothing to say about the coming season, other than that he expected the Independents would emerge from the season's hostilities ss champions of ths world. ;- The rest of his salutations were confined to distributing regards to ths bunch from Bob Marshall, Eddie Norak 1 and Fred Chicken. Next to Ursella, Herb Sies came In for the most admiring oncs orsrs, for the big Darenporter has about decided to cast his lot with the Independents. Then, too, there was Waddy Kuehl and Louie Kohls, who got their share of plaudits for taking sides with the Islanders with the determination to make the team by the hardest kind of com petition. Walt Says XoitfcfoL Manager Flanigan did all the talking, as usual; but Walt told the gang and the rallbirds that Rock Island win spare nothing to bring the title to Rock Island and that everybody might as well get on the Job and stay there until this achievement Is accomplished. Walt also advised the whole turn oat to begin their football diets Immediately. He meant that while the Independents are working out to perfect their attack and defense, , the fans should talk football as ' long as they can breathe. Last year's equipment was check ed up among the players on hand and distributed for the first real ' workout as far as possible. Re- shoddlag seems to be the most par ticular requisite on equipment at this time as there seems to be plenty of old uniforms to suffice until 'the brand new outfits arrive from the Spalding unie orchard.

There ssems to be very little chance of replacing the available members of last years regular eleven when they all report The management realises that It would be poor pol Icy to disrupt such a virile, win ning combination after a whole season of perfecting-plays that are well nigh uneatable. From the wealth of material the Independents are certain to have at their disposal by the end of the week or the fore part of next, it la quite positive that two full teams of veteran players will take the Held for the Initial workouts, which will be a daily occurrence after Sunday. There will be first class substitutes on hand for ev ery position on the eleven, and both Manager Flanigan and Cap tain Ursella promise that those who wUl strive to make the team will receive the utmost attention and consideration.

Talk football! That is going to be the best way to advertise the Independents. Talk about the players, about the games to come, about the possibil ities of winning and about the vari ous plays. . Don't bo satisfied just to attend the games and cheer with every body else Just because one the In dependents has added another star to his galaxy. Study football ana you xoAl understand the most in tricate play. Follow the ball and-! the players who carry it Keep your eyes on the interfering players. Watch closely the work of the line men. The moment the signal is shouted, the whole team moves with cldck-like precision. - Every football fan in the trl-cit-ies should be his own critic. This will materialize if every fan Ilteffct1 ly works through the season with the team. Then will come a greater share in the success of the Indspen dents if they repeat But, above all else, talk football! It will make a championship team quicker than anything else. HE RYES YS. NERVES. Which have you, nerve or nerves? You ought to know. The former is the requisite of a leader, the latter of a weakling. Do you hit your own home runs or score your, own knockouts or kick your own goals? It takes nerve to stand up to the plate when the smoke balls tick your ear tips or breeze your eye lashes. It takes nerve to force a puncher who can sock harder than you can. It takes nerve to plunge through a phalanx of helmeU and sntnguaras to we goal posts. In baseball they call this quality STUFF, in boxing it is HAVING A HEART, in football it is OUTS. But nerves: That's a different proposition. This combination im plies having Just the opposite of having STUFF, A HEART, GUTS. Nerves make one timid, fearful. afraid to take a chance and the dare without which there is no color. Nerve Is a great asset but a bird with nerves will never quite finish in the money. Which have you got? POWER, THE JAKE. Power is the greatest thing In the world, whether it be the Wall Street squeeze, a long range gun or a collossus of sport It makes Its own breaks, takes what it wants, when it wants and leaves nothing in doubt It goes to the front as certain as the sun rises In the east and sets in the west It rises to the top atf SHAWKEY turned back the Tig ers while his Yankee teammates were pounding out a 13 to 3 victory which landed them In first place.

They maintain , that the Olympic games stir up ' national animosities instead of tending to promote good fellowship. j These moulting birds should have been In Antwerp when the Olympic teams broke training. They would have got the surprise of their lives.

(United tress) Sergeant Kay Smith won from Bob Martin, A. E. F. cham pion, on a foul in the first round of their scheduled eight-round bout here last night. Martin landed a terrific swing far below the belt which not on' j eliminated any pos sible chance of Smith recuperating in time to continue the bout but made it necessary for him to be as sisted from the building after a doc tor had worked on him for an hour. THEY'S BIG BOYS. Cambridge, Mass., Sept 15 Coach Bob Fisher of Harvard, is wonder ing what makes .players so big nowadays. He is greatly impressed with the size and build of his 92 candidates for the varsity squad. man to stagger up and pat him on the back was Shields (U. S. A.) And so it went on all the week. No matter what country a winner came from his victory was hailed whole-heartedly by the massed fans of the other countries. Interpreters!

PADDY QUEKN, aalt BIG TEN READY TO BEGIN RACE Conference Football Teams Getting Into Shape for Season Open Ing, Saturday, Oct. i. Chicago, Sept 15. Football will come into its own in the western conference today with the opening of the practice season fox the fall gridiron campaign. Reports from the universities of the "Big Ten" indicated that the largest squads in years responded to the call and that the season bids fair to eclipse the one of 1919, the most successful in years. The teams, with the possible exception of Northwestern and Purdue, will be made up of veteran players of known ability. . The practice for the remainder of the week will consist chiefly of limbering-up work. The most strenuous work will be started ' next week when ttia nlnvApa wfll w cu. uu.u uuuci iuuu auu uic first scrimmages will be held. Illini Has Edge. Ililni,' winner of the 1919 cham pionship, will start the season well fortified with veterans. John Dep- " ler, all-western center, will cap tain the eleven. Ohio State, runner-up in the championship race, will build its 1920 machine around "Pete", Stinchcomb, who was re garded as one of the best quarter backs in the west last season. The Minnesota prospects appear the brightest in years, and a heavy, fast line with a speedy backfield seems assured. Iowa will have the Devine brothers as its principal asset while Wisconsin will rely upon Captain Weston, an end of great ability. With the eligibility of Frank Stekette, all-American fullback in 1918, assured, and other veterans in the lineup, Michigan promises to be in the field with a promising team. Good Maroon Backs. Coach Stagg of the University of Chicago has backfielfi material of ability from which to make his selections. The team will be cap tained by "Red" Jackson, one of the dest forwards ever developed at Chicago. a The general opening of tie sea son Is scheduled for Oct 2. Arnold Oss, halfback, and Cap tain Trig Johnson were figured the center of Minnesota's eleven. The Devine brothers will be back at Iowa as its principal asset Cap tain Weston Is expected to star tor Wisconsin and Williams and Min ion furnish the sensations for In diana.
