Playing on a field from which var
ious members of the bovine tribe had
to be chased before the beginning of
tlav. and also handicapped by about
four inches of mud. the Hock Island
hich school second team battled the
Viola hiph school team to a scoreless
tie Saturday afternoon. Many alibis
were given by the scrubs In regard to
their failure to beat the Viola team.
Som of the squad say that they were
j fed too much for dinnr, others, that
! the mild-mannered cows kept on the
side-lines "got their goat." and there
are stiil others who solemnly swear
that thev were the recipients of a
'bum" deal. One thlnn is certain and
that is that the appearance of the
"scrubs" was r.ot overly prepossessing
for the proprietor of the Hotel Vio-
letta. Viola. V. S. A., upon viewing the
squad, refused them the accommoda
tions of his place. The members of
the team consoled one another by be

during the ninth. With Leah dispos

With the count even up. Callahan's
scrappy youngsters braced in the
tenth and. aided by the reserves, again

batted for Breton, and Cicotte's long

The memory of local fans doesn't re
call the time wnen Pete made his
last base hit and they figured him an
easy out, but Pete upset the dope by
scratching a fluke double down the
right field line. Johnston ran for the
newly crowned hero and scored the
tying tally ahead of Bresnahan's dou
ble, which cleared Demmitfs head and
alighted amidst the overflow. Another
pinch artist. Corriden, hitting for
Lavender, failed to deliver, but Leach,
meeting the first pitched ball, looped a
double over Collins' head and the vie

Ann Arbor yesterday with universal

among the first to express his feelings
in the matter.
"1 am more than sorry- to hear that
Brickley will probably be out of the
game. If we are to beat Harvard on
Oct. 31, we want to do it with their

MOLINE WINS FROM
WEST LIBERTY TEAM
Although the Moline high school
eleven walloped the West Literty
team by a score of 64 to 6 at the
Browning field In Moline Saturday aft
ernoon, the Plow City boys were given
a real scare? in the first quarter. Cap
tain Phelps of the West Liberty team
ran 35 yards for a touchdown shortly
after the game opened, on a perfect
forward pass, before the Moline team
woke up. The Plow City lads came
back with vengeance, however, scor
ing 20 points before the first quarter
ended and from then on the result was
never in doubt. The Moline team
showed good work all through, and es
pecially with forward passes. Willis,
Shallberg. Mullinix and Simonson
starred for the winners.
Next Saturday the Plow City eleven
will meet the Aledo team, which was
defeated by Rock Island 76 to 0.
ing of the Red Men's line and back
gradually wore -it down and it wiltel
at critical times. In the second quar
ter the Olympics worked the ball to
the one-yard line by a series of Iln
plunges and forward passes. Bailey
shot through center and over the line
for a touchdown and yelled "down."
Two of the Indians got hold of his
legs and pulled him back over tha
line, and Referee Walt Reeves would
not allow the score. The football
board made a ruling on a play of this
kind recently. The rule is that when
a man carrying the "ball says dows,
no matter whether the ball hag stop
ped or not, the ball is down. Reeve
was evidently ignorant of this new
rule, as tbe Olympics should have been
given the score.
The Red Men kicked off promptly at
3 o'clock. After an exchange ol
punts and line smashes the Olympic
secured the ball on their own 20-yard
lhie. They attempted a forward par
Red Wolters, the Indians big r:ght
tackle, caught the ball in mid air anl
ran 20 yards for the first score of the
contest. Sies missed goal. Score:
Red Men, 6; Olympics, 0.
In the second eyjarter the Olytupic
backs battered their way to the or,?
yard line and scored, but the scor
was not allowed, because th'i ball wai
pushed back over the lina ufter it had
stopped. The Red Men secure! tbe
ball in mid-field. After a series cf
line smashes the ball was worked Cows
to it'ne 30-yard lins. Here Sies s;ored
the second touchdown for the Indians
on a perfect forward pass from Kuehi
