Rain, 13 to 6 JACKSON SCORES BOTH TOUCHDOWNS IN BATTLE PLAYED ON BAD FIELD Washington Line Holds for Downs After Tigers Work Ball to 8-Yard Line in Third Period State School Eleven Profits by; Breaks. By J. Walter Goldstein. Picture a great big bog, 100 yards long and 160 feet wide, half of which is covered with water and the other half so thoroughly soaked that it gives way to the weight of a bantam. That's the kind of morass that Francis Field presented yesterday for the twenty-seventh annual football meeting of the Missouri Tigers and thq Washington PiSers. Missouri was fighting to retain its unbroken record of victories and leadership in the Missouri Valley Conference. Washington was fighting to give Just one bright dash, of color to Its drab season by defeating traditional foemen. If it had been a matter of fight alone, there would have been little to choose between the adversaries; but the Tigers supplemented this will to win with enough weight, driving power, alertness and good fortune to gain a 14 to 0 victory. It was very wet. On an average of every fourth play it was necessary to relieve the ball of its drip ping mud Jacket. Any halfback skipping through the line, came up from the melee looking like an end man of a minstrel show. A chap rambling through puddles around end usually used the breast stroke; while a line .buck resembled a plunge for distance at an aquatic meet. In the second half. Center Vesper cf the local eleven wore canvas gloves to aid him in his snapplng-back; but the ball was even too tricky for the rough fabric. Yes. it was rather damp. Tigers Use Two "Breaks. In spite of the fact that the winners carried a 13-pound to the man advantage in line beef, had a corps of able substitutes for relief duty from time to time, and had a bril liant record of performance behind them. Washington's goal line was crossed only after two breaks of the game had paved openings. True to their feline heritage, the Tigers hopped on the breaks wi'h cat-like agility and converted them into the tell-tale touchdowns. It was the old Missouri formula. Fight hard, look for openings and then fight harder. Against Nebraska, Kansas Aggic-s and Ames, this formula has proved effective. Yesterday, it rang true again. The first of these chances came in the last moments of the opening quarter. All that had gone before was a series of punting exchanges, with D"vy by his superior yardage, slowly working the ball from his terrain toward Missouri territory. Then came a low, ominous looking boot from the toe of IJndenmeyer, who had punted from his 2 5 -yard line. J la yes, the Piker safety man. standing on his 40-yard chalk line (chalk, until the Intercepted Pass Breaks Up Piters' Best Chance to Score Washington looked fine in defense after that for the remainder of the hrUf and at no time did the Columbia crowd carry the attack to the green side cf mldfield. Washington twice crossed the middle line, but could not do much witi their opportunities. Hayes madj one brillian return of a punt for S3 yards, the lonr?st run of the game: but the thick black wall then stood Its ground and Levy was forced to punt. A short whiie later the Pikers came into posse-sion nn M.asouri's 40-yard line, but on thi second play later CogUzer intercepted a pass. Pikers lleach le-Yard IJne. For the first few minutes of the second ha'.f it looked like the dressing-room oratory had put u fierceness into the Pikers that might redound In a score. Levy-had kicked off to Moulder, who returned 18 yard to the 33-jard llr.e, where he waa savagely tarkld by two inkers. So fierce waa the charge that the pigakin wl!pp-d from the Tiger's paw a and Sammy Floun grabbed It, alidicg four yard. Missouri. Position. Washing-ton. Ilacrhna L. K.. . . I.indrnmeyer . .

On his 20-yard line, th ball came to a stop and he dived for it, but the fickle pigskin skidded another five yards and Stafford, onrushing Tiger tackle, covered on Washington's 15-yard line. There was a seiven-yard gain on the first play, but this was called back ! and Missouri was inflicted with an offside penalty as the period ended. Jackson Cioos Owr. Opening the nxt quarter. White-man tried to wade through center but was stopped. Then Pete Jackson, who waa destined to be the Bengals' offensive atar, used a combination Australian crawl and trudgeon stroke to penetrate the thin green forwards for 14 yards and first down on the three-yard line. Washington fought back gamely for two downs, but on the third effort Jackson scampered around end for a touchdown. . There was a wide, sweeping in- terference on the play, and The opposing end and halfback were cui down viciously. One secondary defender made a lunge for the flying Pete, but wet leather pants and mud-covered fingcra are not conducive to an effective flying tackle. CogUzer kicked perfectly from placement for the extra point. Two line smashes and a pass gav Washington first down It yard", from Missouri's goal line. Th's was the closest that Illgins man came to a score, as an incompleted pass and then Cogiirer'a interception of another toss took the Tig s.-sj out of danger.
