18 Davenport-Islander Fuss SOUND TAPS FOR M.F.A. Independent Football Is Officially Dead Here and Team Disbands. Football is officially dead in Moline, Irsofar as the team backed by the Moline Fans association is concerned, and taps hare been sounded over the aggregation which was touted to bring title galore to the Plow city when the season started with a star aggregation lined up. Game with liork Island last Sunday hung thi ercpe. and games booked for the remainder of the season have been canceled. Three games remained on the slate the St. Paul K. C. eleven here Sunday. Elkhart A- C. November 25, and the contest with Taylorville on Thanksgiving day. Players are unanimous against continuing the team n - a split basis, which was considered after decision was reached by the association to withdraw from the field. Several of the local stars will probably sign to finish the season with other teams in this vicinity. Record made by the team this season was a keen disappointment to th fens, who banked high on the outfit as lined up at the start of the season. Iefeats by Davenprt and IVoria Tractors soured the bugs and the fiasco at Douglas park Sunday put the final crusher on. Best showing of the Tear was made against the Racine Cardinals, held to a tie count here. The principal difficulty encountered by the club was the lack of proper pro tection at Browning park. ithout a fence at the park, hundreds of per sons stood outside the park to watch the rami'?, while other hundreds "sneaked" their way into the park Police and club officials were power less to prevent this condition and many hundreds of dollars were lost to the association. The Davenport game was the most striking example of the loss, when it was estimated that more than 4000 fans watched the game, but when the tickets were conuted less than 1S00 had paid their way in at the gate. Every effort was made by the direc tors of the club to find some way to complete the schedule, but with every game showing a loss, it was not possible to continue. As soon as practicable the directors will meet to wind up the business of the associa tion for the season and make plans for the continuance of its ac tivities in other lines of sport. FOUNDRY TEAM ROLLS 21 TRIUMPHS IN ROW Members of the Foundry team of the Traetor Bowling league rolled their twenty-first straight victory last evenine. The team is composed of AVilliam Faucett, Carl Stoughton, Carl Grame, John Mayer and Harry Lind- strom. CHIPS OFF FLYING CLAY By FETER P. CARNEY. Trapshooters of Philadelphia, Pa., are making an effort to locate traps in Fairmount Park. Philadelphia has built up so in the last few years that one-half of the trapshooting clubs are now without homes and unless they can put over the park-idea they will be in a bad way. Nebraska has the distinction of having a trapshooting squad made up exclusively of ''southpaws' and the squad attends practically all the tournaments in the state. It is comprised of Dee Thorpe, Fred Smith,-George Carter, E. Iu Smith and Emil 'Wol-bach. The Philadelphia Trapshooters' league is under way for its fifteenth year. The same ten clubs that comprised the league last year again hold membership and engage in the league matches once each month. There is as much interest in the Philadelphia Trapshooters league in the winter season as there is in many of the baseball leagues in the summer. There is no reason why there shouldn't be fifty leagues just like the Philadelphia Trapshooters league scattered throughout the country. Frank Wright of Buffalo, N. Y., national amateur trapshooting champion, was right on the targets in the Canadian national exhibition, breaking i'AVi out of 073. In the handicap event lie broke 175 straight. When Wright is right he is hard to defeat. Capt. John II. Hopkins, I S. A., who won the trapshooting championship of the United States army this year, is also one of the best pistol shots in the array. The 1020 Montana state shoot will be held at Kalispel. The Del Moute (Cal.) club is bidding for the California state shoot. The Del Moute club expects to hold every championship event for Californians in 1020. In the Westy Hogans shoot Mrs. Topperwein was high professional shot with 4GS in 480. Woolfolk Henderson was high amateur with 472. The west beat the east in the team "shoot and Pennsylvania won the team championship. The time is coming when sweepstakes and cash prizes will be passe in trapshooting. The Oriole Gun club of Baltimore, Md., recently conducted a shoot for trophies only and the fact that no cash would be given didn't in jure the shoot in the least. Dispatch Short Ads B-ing Results. ON GRID Badger and Mini Teams Are Feared Says Chick Harley By Associated Press Leased Wire. Chicago, Nov. 13. "When the final whistle blows, signifying the end of the Ohio State-Illinois game at Columbus, November 22, "Chick" Harley, AU-American halfback, and rated as one of the greatest gridiron stars developed in the west iu years, will have finished his brilliant football career as an Ohio player. The sturdy captain of the Buckeyes believes that the hardest games remaining on the Ohio schedule will be against Wisconsin at Madison Saturday and against Illinois a week later. "Wiscousin and Illinois are much stronger teams than Michigan, in my estimation, aud we will have to play football all the time to beat them. We have won all our games and most all plays havt gained. Just what we will do when we meet a team which has just as strong a liue and an evenly balanced backfield remains to be seen." says Harley. It is my opinion that' Illinois bit its stride in the Chicago game. Coach Zuppke has been shifting his men all season, but at last has decided upon a combination which will be used for the remainder of the year." E Michigan Banner Has Waved in Triumph After Every Game with Illinois. Hurry-up" Yost and his Michigan football men, as they make ready to invade Champaign-Urbana Saturday to give battle to Illinois before the State day throng that will rally from all over Illinois to back its state university warriors, undoubtedly find consolation in a survey of Michigan-IHi-'1 nois gridiron records. Similarly there is little cause for joy in the hearts of the thousands of backers of the state team, not only alumni but countless other citizens who realize that the Illini represent them also, as they inspect the tablets of the past. For the Maize and Blue of Michi gan has always waved in triumph over the banners of Orange and Blue ou the five occasions when the represent atives of the two commonwealths clashed. The first meeting was at Detroit in 1S!)S when Michigan won, 12 to 5. ''Happy" Adsit saved the Illini from a shutout by grabbing a fumble. In 1S09 the Wolverines invaded Illi nois field and nosed out the Illini by a score of 5 to 0. The elevens met in 1900 on Stagg field in Chicago, where Michigan scored two touchdowns the first half, only to be held scoreless the rest of the game. It was in this game that Garry Cochran of Princeton, then the Wolverine coach, led the Michigan rooters ma cheer for Artie Hall, now a Danille lawyer, as the Illini leader was carried from the field. In 100."i, Yost now at the helm, the men from Ann Arbor had little difficul ty in winning 33 to 0 on Illinois field and next year at Ann Arbor, Yost's team won 28 to C Michigan then concluded it wouldn't play in the conference any more and Saturday's game is the first meeting of Illinois and Wolverines since 1000. There was much regret last fall that Illinois well-oiled machine could not have encountered the Wolverines who said nasty things when the Illinois faculty refused permission. The answer of the Illini fan to this record is that it all happened in the dim and misty past before the days of Bob Zuppke. Anyway the crowds which will penetrate to Illinois field Saturday from all over the state will discover whether there is anything to tradition. Many from here intend to see the last game of the season at the state field. CROSS-COUNTRY RUN TO PRECEDE VARSITY TILT liif Axxneioted Prix leased Wr Columbus, O., Nov. 13. The AVest-ern conference cross-country run, revived after a lapse of a year, due to the war, will be run over the Ohio State course here as a prelirainiary to the homecoming football game with Illinois on November 22. In addition to Western conference schools, members of the Missouri Valley and Ohio coherences and other middle western institutions will be privileged to compete. Officials predict that a dozen or more teams will participate. Little is known here regarding the struggle of other Western conference teams. Ohio State's squad also is an unknown quantity, although the return to school of Frank Todd, star miler and captain-elect of the 1017 team, has given rise to hopes of a strong sextet. JOE LYNCH HAS SHADE OVER CHAMP IN BOUT P.iJ Axxorhittd Prig l.ra&ed W re. Philadelphia, Nov. 13. Joe Lynch of New York outfought Pete Herman, king of the bantam division, in their six-round go here last night. High Schools in League. High schools of Polo, Savanna. .Galena, Mount Carroll. Lanark, Mount Morris, Sterling, and Rock Falls have formed an athletic association to be known as the Little Eight. MAZE ID B L II ALWAYS MnTTKm nATT.v XA W Ull JL-J J-f A A A JJ M 0 LINE HI HOLDS LUTHERAN OUTFIT Anderson's Pets Show Great Improvement Hope to Win Saturday Battle. Showing the best form they have displayed this year, Moline high school eleven held Augustana to a 12-0 count in the practice melee yesterday after-uoon, making the Lutherans battle allthe way to cop the bacon. It was merely a prep affair as a workout for the hard contests which both teams face Saturday, but the teams went into the scrap as thoug' they were out for the title or somethiug better. Display of class by the local eleven gives Coach Anderson confidence that the maroon and white will give Clinton a tough tussle for the verdict when his charges clash with the up-river aggregation at Browning field Saturday. Little is known here as to the strength of Clinton, as there is no basis for judging by comparative scores. Most of the Clinton games have been played with Iowa teams1. Early in the season the Hawkeycs trimmed Dixon by the narrow margia of fi-0. Lineup -of the maroon and white will be slightly changed for the Saturday fuss. Babcock is working at left half, and Strange Reno is toilinj at right guard.-' Reno is taking Stone's place in the lineup, as the latter will be unable to get into the fray Saturday. He is still under the care of a physician, as result of the injury he incurred in the Peoria encounter, when he was knocked out and hurt internally. Driggs will be out for practice tonight and his wrenched ankle is strong enough to allow him to play. Last night's, mill with Augustana was the fourth muss with the Lutherans and the high school lads have shown steady improvement. Score of the first game was 00-0 and the cc-ond 40-0. both being walkovers for the Swedes. Moline high made a better showing in the third of the series, holding Augie to a 24-0 count, and last night' they worried Swedberg's vassals all the way. CHERRY CIRCLE AFTER NATIONAL TRACK MEET Ttft Associated I'rmx leased Wi-e Chicago", Nov. 13. The Chicago Athletic association is to make a determined effort to land the national A. A. I. indoor track and field chnm-nionshins this winter. The cames. if awarded to Chicago, will be staged in the coliseum, and every athletic organization and university in the country will be invited to enter its star athletes in the competition. "Awarding the meet to Chicago would be the biggest boost western athletics could receive," said Martin Delaney, physical director of the C. A. A. "The indoor championships have never been held in the west. I look for a tremendous boom in athletics this winter in line with the astonishing revival in all sports. I am confident that we could stage the indooT championships 'with very successful results." The date for the indoor champion I snips usually is set ior eariy in .uaren INDIANS TUNING UP FOR TANGLE WTH DUBUQUE Forfeit of 300 to insure appearance of the Moline Indians has been posted for the game in which the local eleven will battle the American Legion football outfit of Dubuque next Sunday. The fuss will be staged in Dubuque. The Moline aggregation is tuning up for a hard melee, but expects to turn the trick and topple the Dubuque clan when they tangle. The up-river warriors showed their class Armistice day by taking the strong Dubuque (formerly St. Joseph's) college team to a trimming by a 20-0 count. BROTHER V. BROTHER IN YALE-PRINCETON SCRAP There is likely to be trouble in the Calahan family when the Yale and Princeton football teams meet Satur day. Tim is captain of the Yale eleven and plays center. His brother Mike seems to have the best chance of landing the berth at center on the Princeton team. Tim is two years older and about twenty pounds heavier thatr Mike, but Mike firmly believes that he can tear great holes in the Yale line if they only let him battle against Tim. These brothers are the best of friends, but when they have met in athletic competition in the past brotherly love was shelved. ROCK ISLAND WILL PLAY ROCKFORD TURKEY DAY Rock Island high school eleven will journey to Rockford for a battle Thanksgiving day, according to the dope which comes out of Rockford this morning. The Rockford outfit has made a good showing this year, and the Islanders face a hard fuss when they clash with the northerners. Another Team to Cuba.

C.-Rock Island Independent grid fuss, slated for Sunday afternoou on the Davenport meadow, announcement being 'made this morning that the game arranged yesterday between the rival elevens bad been canceled. Conflicting stories are cluttering up the atmosphere as to cause for cancelation. One is that Davenport wants more, time to prepare . ior the scrap, and will he ready to plav a couple of weeks later in the season Another report is that the break came on account of the callin; off of the scrap slated for last Sunday, when Moline was substituted. Probability is that Flan tea n vi 'i book the St! Paul K. C. team for Douglas park Sunday, this outfit having been booked for Browning li-!d before Moline took the count and disbanded the M. F. A. eleven. Davenport is considering the Beloit A. C. team as a possible opponent for Sunday on the home grounds of the Siesinen. Two new stars will be added to the D. A. C. lineup tomorrow, according to advices from over the river, but management is not yet ready to spill their nmes. MITCHELL AND SAILOR FRIEDMAN ARE READY This is the nht that rinkey Mitchell, the Milwaukee beanpole, and Sailor Friedman of the great West Side settle with the boxitv? gloves the question of supremacy. Racine will be the scene of the merry conflict, which will be gazed upon critically aud otherwise by leadin'j boxing fans and authorities from Milwaukee, Chicago and the village where the mill is to be perpetrated. ' Mitchell generally is favored to win because of natural advantages and unquestioned courage. Friedman has his friends, plenty of them, r.nd will not lack for financial or personal support. He has a habit of sticking in a really good fight occa sionally, and this may be. his turn to glitter. HOLD CASH TILL MAYS IMBROGLIO IS SETTLED! Chairman August Herrmann and President John A. Heydler of the National commission, today 'discussed the delay in the payment of the Yankees' share of the world's series receipts. The meeting was informal and the two members of the highest baseball court decided that there was no change in the situation. The commissioner will hold up the money, $13,017.48. until the American league settles its controversy over the Carl Mays case. YALE IS 5-3 FAVORITE IN PRINCETON COMBAT Betting has dropped in New naven to 5 to 3 against Princeton for Saturday's game. Last week considerable money was wagered at evens. The chauee in the outlook has been caused largely by Yale's ability to score 14 points against the strong Brown eleven Saturday. Gibbons Done If He Loses. Mike Gibbons of St. Paul is one of the greatest middleweight boxers the srame has ever had. But the game may not have Mike Gibbons after November 21. On that date Mike battles his townsman, Mike O'Dowd, and Gibbons announces that if beaten he will pack the mitts away in moth balls for good and that puglisim will have to get along without its noted phantom.

FLYWEIGHT CHAMP SOON TO DISPLAY HIS WARES Jimmy Wilde, tfnglish flyweight champion, said t xlay that he weighs about 10,'t pounds, and would enter the ring at 100 pounds or less during his; American bouts. Ho is 5 feet 2 inches tall and carries most of his weight above the waist. He has been aptly termed as a pocket edition of Bob Fitzsimmons. His first bout in this country will be a ten-round, no-decision contest, probably at Milwaukee, the week after Thanksgiving. Two other bouts are also tentatively planned for points near St. Paul ami on the Pacific coast during the Christmas holidays. Wilde is under contract to return t" New York the first week in January to start training for his championship bout at the International Sporting club, February 3. He 'will probably select quarters in New Jersey at a point near a golf course, where he can play the game which forms part of his regular training routine. Five Plays All In Gridiron Sport Is Chirp of Maxwell Iu the gridiron sport, says Bob Maxwell, the Philadelphia writer and referee, we have five plays, and although disguised occasionally, they are used constantly. They are the punt, drop kick, which includes placement kicking, forward pass, cud run- and plays through the line. Kvry attack is built around those piays, because that's all there arc. You read about teams which have fiftv or sixty different signals, but that gets them nothing. No team ever has used more than a dozen different plays iu a big game and the majority use but four or five. I remember one championship game in which I officiated where only three plays were used by the winning team. They were a buck off tackle, and end run and forward pass. The quarterback was a good field general, discovered the plays which were most effective and used them. And that, by the way, is the secret of successful football. Find the weakness of your opponent and play it. Nothing could be more simple than that. Involved intricate plays seldom are successful. That is because they can be used only once in a game and also because the quarterback sometimes is afraid to call the signal. The team pilot favors the play he and his teammates are acquainted with and lets it go at that. Too many trick plays have ruined many a football team, because they were practiced constantly instead of the real, old ground gaining, dependable ones. One good trick play is enough for a team.

Springfield, Mass., Nov. 13 Business relations between the major and iniuor leagues may be resumed us a result of the uctiou taken at the meeting of the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues last night. With many of the more vital questions settled in yesterday's closed sessions, the National association set itself today to the task of clearing up the mass of minor matters remaining. There is a possibility that the annual meeting may hold over until tomorrow. A distinct feeling of relief was evinced by the minor league leaders today at having put several of the larger problems behind them. This is particularly true as regards the vexed question of renewing relations with the uifijor leagues. The situation has been highly unsatisfactory during the last year and in naming a committee to take up this matter the minors have put themselves in a receptive position and left the next step up to the majors. This question of resuming a national agreement includes the draft problem which, as it I has worked out in the last year, the j minors foci has been distinctly to their disadvantage. Al Tearney was the leader of the faction which opposed renewal of friendship between the minors and the big fellows, and Al announced wnen ne Iff t for the convention that he would fight restoration the old standing to the last diteb. Tearney 'k circuit plans, which involve big changes in minor league territory will probably come to light today- Al is said to have mapped out a tentative reorganization or minor territory which affects cities in lu-dinna, Illinois, Iowa and Ohio. Reports from Springfield iudicate that there will be a bitter fight start-ed when Tearney springs hirf plan, but the Tri-Ln'mp prexy is saiil to have his forces well lined up for the fray. Flock of Matrnen From Tri-Cities Are After Taylor A flock of tri-city grapplers will rush to take up Jack Taylor's offer of 1 a minute for every minute that any challenger keeps his shoulders off the canvas. - Taj lor will appear as the star attraction at the show of the Bcttendorf firemen tomorrow night in the Bettendorf town hall, and has issued a deft to all comers.

Harry BrondcII of Davenport is also looking for some of this change and there will probably be a couple of more challengers at the mat side.
