Tkaa ebrsk ' B-t twlft aatl fare. ST. LOUIS, Mo., Dec. 7. "Washing- ton university, for the first time In Its nisory, won the championship of the Missouri Taller student army training corps today at Francis field by de feating Its only legitimate rtral, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, by a score ot 20 to 7. Washmrton. too outweignea by its speed and cleverness completely discredited the mode of attack and defense that had been prepared by Ne braska. To that master tgenerai, k-ber Simpson, goes the majority of credit for the victory. Turnout the entire sixty minutes of play he kept the Washington machine running as smoothly as one of the famous Liberty motors. His scheme of attack was as varied as the colon of a kaleidlscope and be called hta plays and sent his men Into tbem with bewildering speed. - Nebraska was never given an opportunity to settled down. Once Simp, eon discovered a weakness in the opposing team he plugged ceaselessly at that falling spot wUh a myriad of variations in his attack-. He played ' also lb the Inexperience of a Nebraska substitute on one occasion and a touchdown resulted. The game, was, as hid been forecast, a battle of the air. Both teams dis. dained the line plunging method of , advancing the ball and played almost exclusively to the use of the pass. What little rushing was done showed Nebraska as a superior team in this respect. Their backs drove hard and low, but only in intermittent stretches . were they successful. The Washington line, tho outweighed, outplayed the Cornhuskers line. It played lower, charged faster and fiercer and almost offset Its handicap la weight with its . superior speed. Hew the Game Started. . Nebraska had received instructions to let Washington do all the playing In the Initial quarter and thus expend their energy. Nebraska treated the ball as if It were a mass of molten iron. The men acted as if it burned their fingers to hold it so great was their anxiety to get rid or It. For probably the first twelve times that the ball came Into their possession they kicked on first down and allowed Washington to have the ball merely ' for the sake of running oft plays with the Idea of tiring the piker backs, Ne- ' braska's faltb In its defense rivaled the faith of the American mothers in their boys oversea. The crimson- , hosed players believed that their line and their defense against an aerial attack were Impregnable, but .they were due for a rude awakening. Simpson played every spot In the opposing machine, tested its every fibre In tho first quarter and thereafter he knew exactly with what be bad to contend. And then It was that the Nebraska defense began to realize how Inadequate it waa. As the time wore on Rutherford's 'craft became more and more ' pronounced and when the game ended his vindication waa complete. He had constructed a defense to hold Nebraska and an attack to beat them and both products of his brain were materfu An old time football man would probably hav taken the point of view that it was a basketball game rather than a football contest, but a prettier exhibition from a bpectatoi's point of view has rarely been staged. It was good football, too, manly, clean and hard and had enthusiasm been measured In degrees of fahrenhelt. the thermometer would have reached the bursting point.' School spirit, a thing pitifully lacking in St. Louis heretofore, was clearly evident todsy jind many old grada were plca-antly surprised. When Nebraska Scored. Nebraska made its only points in the second quarter thru a forward pass after euuie good gains thru cud runs and line bucks. Do'mon heaved lo Lyman, who ran over the line and Howarth kicked the goal. Wellington tied the score but a few minute later after a series of forward passes, Kvans carrying the leather uvm- on a short end run. Simpson kicked goal. In this quarter Evans mi-de a sensational run thru a broken field after receiving a forward pass and rrossed the line covering sixty-five vards on the trip. Simpson asaln kicked goal. Washington nmde six more polni In the second half on held goal kicking by Simpson. WashtnKton cnuhl not make headway thru tho Nebraska line and the Cornhuskers were stopping end ruas and forward pauses sb the former Michigan star resorted to kicking from the field. Toward the close -Nebraska made Its best showing of the game, when It resorted to straight football and ran the leather two-thirds the length of the field before tlme was called in the final quarter.

He was on the second string in 1917, His work stamps him as one ot the best back-field-men of the year. It. was a toss-up between him mnd Ballantyne, of Norfolk, as fullback selection for the wecond .All-State team, Smith and Pratt both earned places on th All- State and tbelr nhoes wll be bard to fill. Hohnstein has been a consistent performer In every frame. Jesse bailey, who broke into one or two games as relief man, alio will be graduated In the spring. Seven "L" men of the championship miioliljie, took their first football medicine under Coach Ben Beck who took charge in the fall. The early pro spects of" the team were anything but bright. Intelligibility pf severaj players who had been measured and found to possess the elements of essential gridiron strength, spread gloom over tne camp.. Coach Heck set about the business of building a machine with dogged perHiitency. He was aided materially by Karl Johnson, former I'eru coach nd Hilck True, ex-Lincoln star. True, in fact, is given credit by the coach for the remarkable development of Henry Pratt at center. Plan Celebration, Principal Frank O.

He is one of the best receivers of forward passes seen in the west this year. His receiving ability was an important factor in the defeats of Minnesota. Nebraska, and Northwestern. He covered punts well and was ever mindful to drive the catcher of kics tp the inside, where he could be tackled by some other Hawkeye player. He was also a strong player and generally hit the interference hard and low." THE JOURNALS ALL-STATE Selections That May r Mar Xet Meet Wit Approval of Other Hitch School Dopesters. Selecting sn all-state htgh school team Is ordinarily a difficult task. It la especially difficult this year because of the prevalence of Influenza and the resultant necessity to cancel many games. This handicap was not. however, so pronounevQ In high school circles as In those of ths colleges and universities. The State Journal selections, found elsswhers tn Jhls papsr, were made after a canvass 'of opinion from weU known officials, coaches and playera of a number or teams. Hince no two opinions were in common, .the selection Is not expected to tally wiui those of the Individual, There ahould be no dispute In ths award of the quarterback position. Vern Lewellou won the state championship for Lincoln. He was not only the best high school general of ths yoar, but was one of tha moot powotful line plungnrs, and was in a field by himself in tho kicking department. Ha registered three field goals and easily out-punted alla rivals. Kinder of Cambridge stood out as the fcest fullback of the season. Against. Lincoln in the titular Thanksgiving day game, he outplayed . his teammate, Easter, who deserves high rating on the chart of backfield stars. To Frank Morgan of York, goes the honor of leading all backfield men, excepting the quarterback position. Morgan was to York what Lewellen was tb Lincoln. He la big, shifty and powerful. Aa a running mate for Morgani Banner of South Omaha, ia selected. He was ths main cog in the team s orrensive and waa a tower of strength on tee defensive. Other strong backfield men of the year were: Burgess, Beatrice; Bands, Mohler and Mulr, York: llloodgood and Cheek, Beatrice: Hartman and Holland, Lincoln: Harper and Swboda, omaha: Katon, South Omaha; Hove. Falla City; Beaton and Ballantyne. Norfolk: and faster. -Cambridge. Katon, South Omuha, and Burgess of Lincoln, are probably the beat quarterbacks next to Lewellen. Hoye or tails city deserves a place on the second 'earn, because of his consistent and sometimes spectacular work thruout the year. Ballantyne of Norfolk Is riven preference over Hartman of Lin coln, at fullback on the s.'cond team, altho the margin between these players Is admittedly close, 1 . Pugh of Lincoln was the best snd of the year In Nebraska high at-lioolflrclea. Minnie k of ramprldse Is picked as his running mate. Konoiky of timnha find Rtoll of Incoln wen' close up to wils pair and' there were any number of good ends who deserve prominent mention. KelsoacK ot York wan easily the class of ths tackles. Kills of Hcatrlct, thQ not a flashy-player, was probably- the next best tackle, Mc-Glaamm of Lincoln and Schafer of Omaha are runiiers-up. Smith of Lincoln and fol-lard of Omaha are uenerally recoynlxed as the hest guards of that Htate high school circuit. -Thrcc candidates lor center run close. These are Hratt, Lincoln; Winkle, Beutt're tintl Krtucli. ' Norfolk. Piatt la awarded . the pivot po.titlon. 'because of the cniiHlMent steadiness of his passing In all games.

These narrow margin results gave proof that the team could be depended upon to go well under pressure. Captain Lewellen wan an Inipotrant factor in the winning of the title.

Sports Editor Journal : The following ia, an open letter addressed to the Hon.vPelham A: BarrowB, L. G., B. B. F. . - Dear Sir, Comrade and Co-laborer in the Vineyard: Up to an including the hour of last Sunday, when I read your letter to The Journal, 1 had an opinion of your mental attainments that would get by the postoffice authorities. But since noting herw you roast the city council for its action in purchasing a couple dozen acres for a municipal golf links, your intellectual batting average has fallen so low that 1 could not set it down without an accompaniment of language that Mr. Burleson wouldn't stand lory As for myself, I am strong for the links. Exhibit Some Nerve. You certainly exhibit some nerve to cU down the eminent gents who are running this town of ours. Do you know that your remarks are seditious and that you are liable to be pinched under the espionage law? You must beyery careful these days, or you'll be sitting on a hard benoa and saying: "My. how nice it looks outside this morning." Vhy, only last spring t fiouncilmen were blowing around the newspapers how the-city tax levV had been cut down, and then they snuck in the back door and boosted the assessed valuation so you only have to pay about 30 per cent more taxes this year than last.' But may one not say something about it? Yes, one may not. Then again, further, in addition, and on the other hand, take the school board. As an aggregation of single and double barrelea expenders of other people's money, there are no insects discernible on the school board. Notwithstanding that for a couple of years past, a navy bean has been selling at about the same price as an egg, and porkchops have been slightly less valuable than platinum, while , coal conies by the carat and goes by the scoopful notwithstanding the H, C. ' of L. and tho governmental injunctions to save and economize, the school board has been spending .money like' the aircraft corporation. The disbursing ability of the fabled stailof full of gin In a foreign port has nothinc on the prodigality of the school board in this man's town. But may not one protest? Yes, not one may. The City' Link. But, getting down to the kernel In, the nut, or. as they say over in France, 1 to the colonel in the dugout, I don't' agree with your remarks about the 'city's golf links. As 1 have said, I think that. we should have such links by all means, fair if possible, foul if necessary. 1 think that nuch links' should be bought immediately immediately after the purchase of the street car system,' the installation of a city market, and the establishment of ten or fifteen othfer improvements that the city needs about a hundred times worse than it needs links. But while I could overlook this dif- ference of opinion between us. I can- not forgive nor forget nor condone your utler lack of sagacity in trying to instill any sense into. a municipal governing body by literary process. the wrist? And may I not hope that in some rude way we can make the council and school board so' mad at us that they won't let ns vote for them next spring? . - Remember, Pelham, that a city is -no stronger than its weakest links, and that under the anti-tipping rules, nothing comes to him who waits Vftitpa In wirrnw " - E. a FAIRFIELD Pleasant Exercise Clean and Healthful Visit the ( WALRUS ALLEYS' 1454 0 Basement. ith All State Tram.
