By tho persistent use of old style foot ball, Intermingled with' an occasional forward pass anil .end runs, St Louis university walloped Creighton yesterday afternoon by the score' of 23 to- 3, Creighton's only score came In the' last few minutes of play, when Jap Tamlsea booted the boll between the crossbars from the twenty-yard line. St, Louis'' defense was tho stiff est proposition tho blue and white has run up against, this season. Time after time thp Orelgfiton lads would -break through the first defense, only to ba stopped by a stonewall secondary. defense. Creighton, on the other- hand, seemed riot able to stop tho terrific smashes of -thd'St Louis backs. Rati can and Ochritz-'had little trouble getting by the first 'and 'second defense of the Creighton team and even then, with several husky opponents hanging about thorn, would crawl and Squirm and battle, for a fowmoro valuable feet Crelchtnn Stnrtx Well. Creighton Btarted off with a rush, but after a fumble the SL Louis backs started a march down the fletd. Twice they were In striking distance of the goal line, but a fifteen-yard penalty saved Creighton from one touchdown and the ball going out of bounds saved another. Snyder was then pushed through the center for the first touchdown and Magulre" kicked goal. The second quarter found the Creighton team fighting- hard and they had the. ball In St Louis' territory nearly tho, entire period, but when within striking distance of the goal they fell down. In this quarter Tamlsea tried his first drop kick, It being from the forty-yard lino. yThe ball carried well, but tho wind hold it off to one side. "Wnllc Over Crelarhtnn. In the third quarter tho Bllllklns literally walked over the Creighton bunch. Their rushes came hard and fast Ratl-can, Zachriti and T. Stadtherr carrying the ball mo$t of the time. Itatloan, especially, making long gains through the line and around the ends. About the middle of the third quarter Zachritz caught a punt off the toe of Tamlsea and ran sixty-five yards through a broken , field for a touchdown. Magulre negotiated the goal. Tn the samo quarter, after working the ball almost the length of the field, Ratlcan broke through center for twenty yards and made another touchdown. Ma-gulrd again kicked goal, In the last period Creighton quit Its use- Ifss attack against the stonewall line of the Mlssurlans. Open play was resorted to and many gains wore made for ipisd distances,' Once on a fumble the St. Louis team reeovored the ball and marched down the field, pushing Snyder across for their lost touchdown. Magulre kicked goal. In this period the prettiest play of the game was pulled off.' A double forward pass was worked to perfection by the locals. Miller heaved tho ball to Hopkins, who passed it clear across the line of scrimmage to Brennan, who got away for thirty yards. The St. Louis team then strengthened and Jap Tamlsea was given his fourth chance at a drop kick, and booted theball fairly between the posts. Fight lu the I. nut.

Had the local team used the open play and forward pass an much during the other periods as It did in the last, there Is no doubt but what the score would have been muoh closer, for when the blue and white tried the pass It meant gains In most Instances.
