Team Work in
the Tri-Cities
Tomorrow we have another demonstration of the fact
that the Tri-Cities form a wonderful working unit. The
football game at Browning Field in the afternoon be
tween the Moline and Davenport High Schools is the
Both teams are earnest and eager and "just rarin' to
go." They have been "pepped up" by not only their
respective schools, but also by their respective towns
people. ' r
Yet there is no animus no hatred nor will there be
whichever way the game goes. .
Both schools have shown time and time again that they
are "game losers." They have shown, each of them,
many more times that they are "gjood winners." As
the schools are, so is the community and so will it be.
When our schools produce game losers as well as good
winners, we are safe.
Our opinion is that tomorrow's game will be one of the
cleanest, best played exhibitions of high school football
we have ever had the opportunity to see. Let's go
with the"crowd! The game starts at 2:30 p. m. at
Browning Field. Take .any street car and transfer, if
necessary fare 5c with an Identification Card. The
