The scheduled confab on the Island
City gridiron yesterday afternoon be
tween the Rock Island Independents
and the' Muscatine Independents did
not take place for the simple reason
that Muscatine backed out at the last
moment, suffering with a w-ell develop
ed case of cold feetis. A telegram came
shortly after 10 o'clock Sunday morn
ing, and though it did not exactly say
so, the wording might as well have
been, "Scared Out! Cold Feet Can't
Play." It amounted to exactly the
same thing and so the Independents
found themselves without a game.
Manager Jack Roche, a man of ac
tion at all times. Immediately busied
himself In a strenuous effort to sched
ule a good game In order to give the
fans some kind, of a pastime, at least.
But there were no good teams handy
and so the afternoon's doings had to
be called off entirely. The fault lies
with the Mufjpatine team and the Col
umbus Junction wonders, both of whom
were scared out . Over 500 local fans
journeyed to Moline to witness the
Red Men-Olympics struggle.
Next Sunday the Independents will
meet the Rockford Badgers in one of
the biggest games here this season.
All of the local men will be In good
condition for the big contest. The
Rockford Badgers have a strong aggre
gation and for several seasons have
claimed the state title, but have not
played for It. This will be the Badg
ers' first appearance in the tri-cities.
