ors the ball was fumbled and a Rock
sland player secured possession of it

Had the regular lineup been kept
in until the completion of the game
the score would probably been in the
neighborhood of 100 points. The locals
did not outweigh the visitors more
than three or four pounds to the man
and it was clearly a case of a team
against 11 players, who, while eager,

superior team work of Rock Island
settled the result of the game as soon
as the first score was made.
The teams lined up as follows:
