while Murphy served well on one
of Uncle Sam's sub-chasers.. This
fact is of particular interest, to the

In the semi-windup Frankie
Schmalzer will attempt to establish

up his residence in Rock Island.
His record Is such as to command
the attention of the followers of

against a rough, rugged mauler of

The drill during last week was

Too many came In toward the end
of the week to reap the full bene

three blackboard sessions each day.
By the end of the week all hands
should be pretty well versed in

Reverting to Jimmy Clabby, .
" the thought comes to mind that
he has been matched with
Johnny Wilson, middleweight

Clabby spent some of the early
years of his life in Rock Island,
He lived with his parents in the
east end of the city around the
Lonefellow school district. Frankie
Sinnett, who one time came within
hailing distance of the bantam title,
recalls a fistic encounter between
himself and Clabby when both were
fresh youngsters going to Long
fellow school. Some of the older
kids urged them on during the
noon " recess. When a truce was
declared, both were bad spatter
ed, and rather than take the risk
of teacher's disapproval, they shook
hands and went down to the river
for an afternoon's swim.

Eddie Usher, three years a
member of the Michigan uni
versity football team, reported
to the Independents yesterday
while the game was In progress
at Douglas park. He is a back
held man and hails from To
ledo, Ohio. I'sher was on his
way to Rock Island within an
hour after he had been reach
ed by long distance telephone
Saturday nicrht.
tosher played with Michigan
in 1918, was ineligible in 1919,
but finished up in 1920 and
1921. He Is stocky of build,
much on the order of Lauer,
and is sn!d to be a great smash
er and exceptional defensive
man. He is said to have been
one of the principal cogs in the
Michigan eleven.
defeating the lighter and less ex
perienced Moline Indians by a
score of 26 to 0. The green clad
warriors registered a touchdown in
each quarter and Jerry Johnson
added two points by goals from
placement. Two attempted kicks
after touchdowns .were blocked by
the scrappy Swedetown represen
tatives. '
. As was to be "expected, the In
dependents looked far from being
a finished product, but the ground
work has been laid and in another
week the squad should hve plays
mastered well enough to withstand
the invasion of the Green Bay team.
There was not the unison that w'.ll
undoubtedly characterize the drive
of the locals later. The Indians put
up a gritty battle but were worn
down by steady line plays and a
sprinkling, of aerial work that wa3
indicative of promise. i-
Work Long rass.
In the first quarter Jerry John
son crashed across the last chalk
line after the opening drive of the
Independents had been stopped on
the one-yard mark by the fighting
youngsters. Consistent line gains
carried the oval down, slowly but
surely. In the second quarter a
pass, Conzelman to Clago, advanced
the ball from Rock Island's 23-yard
line to Moline's 25-yard zone, from
where a series of line bucks
brought the ball to the shadow of
the goal and Gavin smashed over
for the second touchdown. Jimmy
Conzelman staged his on-side kick
ruse in the third quarter at the ex
pense of Walt Brindley to score the
third touchdown. The ball was
kicked by Jerry Johnson from the
vicinity of Rock Island's 30-yard
line. Brindley allowed it to roll
acr'os his owngoal, and Conzel
man, racing at. full speed, smoth
ered the bail in his arms for the
Third Quarter.
