TO CROSS LINE
Final Score is 0 to 0 in Great Foot
ball Game Between Rock Is
land and Moline.
WAS PRETTY EXHIBITION
Teams Prove More Evenly Matched
Than Was Thought and Battle
Wages Even to End.
While neither Rock Island nor Mo
line scored in the game between the
two high school football teams Sat
urday afternoon, the result was as bit
ter as defeat for Moline and almost as
good as victory for Ilock Island. . In
Moline the enthusiasts were confident
'that the team would give Rock Island
' a severe trimming, and in Rock Island
the most sanguine prediction that
would be-ventured by any of the en
thusiasts was that Rock Island would
make a surprisingly good showing, and
would make the Moline boys earn their
victory if the final score was In Mo
line's favor. But now that the con
test is over, an analysis of the play
ing shows to those who know what
the Rock Island boys have been doing
in practice, that Rock Island would in
all probability have won by a good
margin had the weather conditions
been more favorable, so as jto permit
of .a greater use of the new open style
of game. As it was, Rock Island out
played Moline throughout the entire
game on this style of playing, and
practically all of Moline's gains were
made cn line plays, through the weak
spot left because of Frey's inability to
The forward pass failed invariably
for the Moline team, and it cost them
numerous penalties, sometimes the loss
of the ball, and in other instances the
penalty was a setback of 15 yards. On
the other hand, Rock Island's punts
were more successful, and the Rock Is
land boys were far more successful in
the forward pass play. The only ser
ious criticism of the Rock Island team
is that nununs was not resorted to
oftener, although possibly Captain
Liitt had reason for not employing
this play more.
Was Jrctty Kxlilliitlon.
The game was a pretty exhibition of
football, and while the weather condi
lions were not the most favorable
there was an enormous crowd on hand
to witness the contest. There were
two things that detracted from the
game. Of these the Moline mi.nage
ment was responsible for one, and the
other was a mere misfortune for both
sides. The Moline management failed
miserably in provisions for keeping
the 'crowds off the field, and several
times the players had scarcely room to
make their plays. While the specta
tors were to blame for this in a meas
ure,, the intense interest in the game
was their excuse. Had the proper po
lice provisions been made, and the
field properly 'fenced, such a condition
would not have existed, and the game
would have been much better from the
standpoint of an athletic exhibition
The other detracting influence was the
Qualifications of the officials. To be
?ure, all three officials had difficult
tasks, with the crowd surging onto the
field, and the snow blowing contimi
ally, but it was clearly shown that
they lacked in a thorough knowledge
of -the rules. Fortunately, however,
the decisions were as bad for one team
as the other, and there could be no
charge of prejudice. The officials were
all well recommended, and had the
conditions been other than they were
they probably would have given more
general satisfaction. If either side
were justified in a claim of being given
the worst of the deal by the officials
it was Rock Island, but local players
and enthusiasts credit the officials with
being entirely honest.
Fight to the PinlHh,
The scene of the game swung from
one end of the field to the other, and
lx;th teams fought to the very last
minute of play for supremacy. Several
times Moline's goal was in danger, and
twice during the game it seemed that
Moline was certain to cross Rock Is
land's line. In the first half it appear
ed that Moline had won a touchdown
on a fluke such as gave the Plow city
boys their only score" in the Moline
Rockford match, but they were not
credited with a touchdown. The Mo
line boys attempted a forward pass
but the ball hit the ground and under
the rules the pass was incomplete, and
the Moline team was subject to pen
alty. One of the Moline players, how
ever, assuming that the referee might
be bluffed, went over the line with the
dead ball, and a touchdown was claim-
The claim was based on a charge
that the ball had been touched by
Rock Island player before it hit the
ground, and therefore was a free ball
The referee, however, ruled that the
, forward pass was incomplete, and
penalized Moline 15 yards.
j With but five minutes of play, Mo
line made a brilliant dash for Rock
island's goal, and it seemed that

Three times Rock Island rushed the
ball to within 10 yards of the Moline
line, and when there was but 10 min
utes of play left. Rock Island had car
ried' the pigskin to within 20 yards.
After being held twice, a drop kick
as attempted, but the ball went wide
of the posts, and Moline was given a
free kick from the 23-yard line. Moline,
however, had been given a severe scare
nd the Plow city boys immediately
braced up and showed a determination
to keep the play farther away from
the danger point during the remainder
of the half.
Some Money Watered.
The game was the subject of nu
merous wagers, and during the half
there was some lively betting on the
outskirts of the crowd.- There were
no odds given at any time, but during
the intermission, when it seemed that
Rock Island would certainly score dur
ing the last half, Moline sought odds.
None were given, but the bets were
made on even money, and quite a sum
was posted before the second half be
gan. The betting was almost entirely

No Kick Coming.
No hard feelings should result from
high school football contest, and
while Moline may claim that a bad de-
ision deprived them of a chance to
score. Itock island contends that there
was the shadow of an excuse for even
aising such a point. The concensus of
opinion is that the teams were evenly
matched and each on merits was en
titled to what the score shows. So
slight was hc advantage, if there was
any either way, that the result should
b"? accepted in true sportsmanlike
spirit by both side"..
Hm-k iMlunil K Irked OIT.
Moline won the toss up and chose to
defend the west goal, which gave them
the advantage of what little grade
thcr is in the field and also the slight
wind which was blowing. Rock Island
kicked off and after an exchange of
punts Moline began to play in earnest
with the ball in the center of the field.
They made first down several times
and were then forced to kick. The
ball rolled over the line and was de
clared a touchback. Soon after the
punt out which followed, Rock Island
again got possession of the ball and
commenced a steady march down the
field which ended only when Moline
held firm on the 10-yard line. The
ball again changed hands and was soon
back in the center of the field. It then
went back and forth from tip? center
to within 20 yards of Moline's goal for
the remainder of the half. Moline be
gan to weaken towards the end of the
first session and had there been a few
more minutes of play a touchdown
would probably have been credited to
Moline Startn Second.
Moline started the second half of the
game by kicking off to Roche, who
ran it back 25 yards. On a series of
line smashes and end runs the ball
was carried down within striking dis
tance of Moline's goal, only to be lost
on- a fumble. Then the ball came back
into Rock Island territory as fast as it
had just left it, the principal factor be
ing several long runs by Wyland, who
broke through the Rock Island line at
the place rendered weak by the ab
sence of Frey, right tackle. Several
times Moline reached Rock Island's 10
yard line, but there met with sturdy
resistance on the part of the Islanders
and the ball was lost on downs each
Both teams came close to both win

time, nothing could have prevented a
core. On the other hand, Mcline was
'vice in a position to score except for

ty well. Both scores were made in the
first half, and after that Davenport
played a defensive game entirely, for

Spring Valley Gets a Lucky Touch
down on Moline West Ends in
Match at Island City Park.
The West Finds of Moline and the
football team from Spring Valley had
battle royal at Island City park yes
terday afternoon and the Moliners
finally bowed, in defeat by the close
score of 5 to 0. A blocked punt in
the first half, did the business and
while neither side was able to gain
consistently at any stage of the game.
Spring Valley did not have to carry-
he ball over the line in order to win.
After kicking off to Moline, Spring
Valley forced the West Ends to punt
and when they attempted to do so,
the visitors from down the state broke
hrough and blocked the ball and then
fell on it after it had rolled over the
ine, thu3 securing a touchdown in
rather an easy fashion. From that
ime on the game became a punting
duel with both sides about even.
Hartzel of Moline mixed some fatal
misjudgmeut of punts with some
clever running back of punts, but on
the whole had his work been a little
less spectacular and a little more
steady at critical times the Moline
earn would probably have won the
game. line he several times rc-
urned the ball long distances, he
more often failed to catch it entirely
and allowed Spring Valley to recover
it for long gains. Johnson for Moline
and Miller for Spring Valley v.ere the

Ludwig Becker in Recital. The
Chicago Daily News in speaking ot
Ludwig Becker, who gives a violin re
cital at the First Congregational
church, Moline, ' this evening, says:
"Individual distinction centered upon
Ludwig Becker, the second concert
meister of Thomas orchestra, who chose
for his violin the alleged . moderate
from Vieuxtemp's first concerto. Mr.
Becker is a master of both tone and
'echnic, and carried through its mazy
intricacies with a surencss and bril
liancy that realized most effective re
sults in performance. The double
stopping staccato bowing and. also the
other technical accomplishments had
brilliant exposition. In response to
enthusiastic recall he returned and
had better opportunities to exploit his
power as a tonallst in Wagner's
Albnmblatt. His playing is marked
by the solid qualities of good musi
clanship, but he has ample command
of the showy ..effects minus manner
isms." Miss Eflje Johnson of this city
will be Mr. Beckers accompanist.
