" "With today's victory. Nebraska is still a contender for the Missouri valley DEFEATS 1GHAB0DS Until. Last Eight Minutes, Struggle With Drury Was Washburn's, BIG LEAGUE STAR IS AFTER BADGERS WIN BIG 50-YARD DROP KICK, TOO championship. Two sensational runs, one by Captain Frank for 70 yards, and one by Howard for 75 yards, which came late in the last quarter, turned what looked like defeat Into victory for Stlehm's men. Frank's wonderful dash for a score followed Howard's 20-yard run on the klckoff after Weldllne's successful field goal which netted the Jayhawkers their 8 points. The Cornhusker captain slipped throuarh the Kansas line, evaded a dozen K. U. tacklers and rushed to his own troal. Towle kicked. Kansas came back fighting and recovered a fumble which pave them the ball In Nebraska's territory. Tudor threw a forward pass straight into Howard's hands and he repeated Frank's feature. K. U. EXPECTED A TIE. For a time the Kansas rooters felt sure of a tie game at least. In tho first quarter the charging Jayhawkers played the Cornhuskers to a standstill and kept the ball in mldfield. Kansas braced in the second period and In an Interchange of punts in which Wilson bested Howard. K. U. got the ball on Nebraska's 30-yard line. Detwller and Steuwe made two first downs by rushing the line fiercely. K. U. pushed the ball closer and closer to the Cornhuskers' goal. On the fourth and last down one yard remained to be made for a Kansas touchdown. Wilson tried to go through the line and failed. Howard punted from behind his own goal. The kick was blocked but was recovered by Bwanson on the 8-yard line. Another punt put the ball out of danger and the half ended with Kansas orivnnrMncr tn the Nebraska troal. Not being able to score in the first half both teams came back fiercely. The ball see-sawed back and forth In the middle of the field until the end of the quarter when K. U. took another brace, sweeping the Nebraska forwards off their feet and gaining ground steadily. Detwiller, Steuwe and Coo-lidgo worked desperately for their gains. On the last play in this period Det-welller intercepted Potter's forward pass on Nebraska's 40-yard line. A'ter the one-minute rest Kansas started on a slow march to Nebraska's goal. Nebraska held on her 20-yard line and Weidllne kicked a pretty goal from the field. ROOTEIIS WENT WILD. The K. U. rooters went wild with enthusiasm and thoughts of the 6 to 0 victory in 1909 reawakened in their hearts. The joy or tne jvansas sme the field was soon turned Into gloom however. On the second play after the kickoff Frank made hs wonderful play, which was followed close after by Howard's dash. The game ended with the ball on Nebraska's 40-yard line. Nebraska lost 80 yards in penalties from rough tactics The game was so fierce that three men were carried from the field. On the very first play Magill, the K. U. quarter, received a blow on the head and was taken to a hotel unconscious. Shortly after Martin was given a wrenched ankle and was forced out or tne game, in tne " last quarter Ross, the big 225-pound negro guard of the Nebraska team, was carried off the field unconscious. Kansas played a wonderful game, fiurhting against almost overwhelming odds in weight and condition of men, the Jayhawkers fought and scrapped for every inch of ground. Price and Brownlee played well at ends and Det-eelller and Coolidge starred at gaining ground. Steuwe and Wilson also played well. The lineup: Nebraska Position.

Drury college took another step towards the state collegiate and normal football championship today by defeating the husky Washburn college team of To- peka by a score of 16 to 14. The game was Washburn's until the last eight minutes of play when two speedy forward passes by Dillard, quarter, cost Washburn two touch downs and a goal. Washburn played the old straight line plunges and made yard after yard, scoring two touchdowns after a terrific battle In the first and second quarters. The first five minutes of play gave Dillard a chance with his toe and he sent the pigskin between the bars for a field goal from the fifty-yard line, netting Drury three points. Drury played versatile ball, using line-and end runs and forward passes. In the last eight minutes, a forty-yard forward nass netted a touchdown. Dil lard kicked goal. Baldwin and Collins, ends, took other passes of over forty yards after the klckoff and made the second touchdowns. Collins missed goal. Washburn's back field was shot to pieces in the last quarter and the big advantage Drury gained in her open play won for the Panthers. If Drury can win from William Jewell college in the Thanksgiving day game, a post season game will be urged that state championship title might be contested with the Warrens-burg normal. 9" CHAMPIONSHIP Defeated Gophers, Last Year's Champions, by Score of 14 to 0 Points Made on Two Touchdowns.

With one minute of play left, Marion bucked the ball over for a third touchdown and the game. Referee, Hargis; umpire, Ambler; head linesman. Shell. Minneapolis, Nov. 16. The badger proved a superior fighting animal to the gopher here today and tonight the title of football champion to the big nine," last year held by Minnesota, belongs to the husky eleven from Madison', Wis. The score was, Wis consin, 14; Minnesota, 0. A touchdown on a line smash by Tandberg early in the second quarter, followed soon after by a touchdown by Captain Hoeffel on a forward pass from Gillette, on both of which occasions Gillette's trusty toe added a point on goals kicked, spelled the story of the defeat of Minnesota's team. The teams were nractically equal in weieht. but Minnesota dis played a tendency to fumble and was weak in the handling of the forward pass. Never since the old time rivalry between Michigan and Minnesota has there been such interest in a Minnesota game as was evidenced today. Wisconsin rooters tonight "own the town," hotels, theaters and every public building being filled with exulting cardinal supporters. Wisconsin's driving backs, Bright, Tandberg and Van Riper, stand out as the particular stars of Wisconsin's back field, Gillette showing up but little except in his booting, which was greatly superior to that of either Shaughnessy or Hayward. "We put too much responsibility upon Gillette," said Coach "Germany" Schultz. of Wisconsin, after the game tonight. "We told him to play straight-football and he was afraid to take the responsibility to try any of his speedy runs, especially with VanRiper tearing holes in the Minnesota line, and Tandberg and Bright doing almost as well." Only in the laet 10 minutes of play did Minnesota's attack prove so dangerous that it threatened the badger goal. FOOTBALL SEASON HEARING ITS CLOSE Missouri Valley Elevens Play Their Final Games Saturday. DOPE FAVORS MISSOURI Special to the Capital. Manhattan, Kan., Nov. 16. In a clean, hard fought game, the Kansas Aggies defeated the team from Colorado unl versity on College field this afternoon by a score of 14 to 6. The teams were unusually evenly matched and until the last quarter neither gained a decided advantage. Then the superior training of the Kan sas men asserted its,elf- and during the last eight minutes of play, they were playing the westerners off their feet- Colorado took the lead by scoring early i In the first quarter. Slattery slipped through the right side of the Aggie line and ran 75 yards before he was finally overtaken. A forward pass and two line bucks put the ball over -for the first touchdown. Glendenning missed goal. The Aggies came back strong, and by straight football, carried, the ball to Colorado's 20-yard line, from where Simms went over for a touchdown. Pol-lom kicked goal. During the second and third quarters the ball see-sawed across the center of the field. Neither goal In serious danger. Pollom, for the Aggies, tried two drop kicks, but failed in both attempts. In this quarter, a Colorado man tackled the ball after it had been whistled down and ran 50 yards for a touchdown, but was called back. In the last quarter the Aggies commenced to show their full strength. They rammed like bucks and tackle swin- against the Coloradoans for long gains, Holmes finally going over for a touchdown. Pollom kicked goal. Within - few minutes to play, the Aggies took the ball from kickoff and carried it straight across the field and sent Prather over for another touchdown, hut on the last down an Aggie was offside and the ball was called back and beiore it could be pushed over again time was called.

If Ames defeats Drake, the conference championship will end In a muddle and the great majority of persons Interested In valley football would be glad to see a post-season game between the Cornhuskers and the Iowa Affiles. Such a same is against the conference code, but with each school willing, a vote by mail might be taken and the rule suspended. Otherwise the title will rest In a tie be tween Nebraska and Ames, with the comparative scores chaps awarding the decision to Ames on points. However, comparative scores amount to little In football, as almost every combat proves, and the fact that Kexraska, 1S11 valley champions, defended its title against all Missouri valley conference teams will. In the minds of many, glvs the Cornhuskers the right to retain their title, regardless of the fact that some other team may have met the same opponents Nebraska met and may have defeated them by larger scores.

The Ames-Drake affair really is the most important contest, as the result will nave a most emphatic bearing on the val ley championship. However, the Mis eouri-Kansas struggle is the real classic or tne valley so far as valley- football traditions are concerned. It will be the twenty-second annual football game between the rival universities and the third of the twenty-two to be played away from Kansas City. FIRST MO-KANSAS GAME AT LAW. nE.NCE. The Missouri Tigers will Journey to Lawrence for this year's game, the first time the contest has ever been scheduled on McCook field. Last year the game was played on Rollins field at Columbia, Mo. A crowd of 10.000 witnessed the game, the receipts running close to $15,-000. The year before, the game was played on the Gordon & Keppel field In Kansas City. . The audience numbered 18,000 and the total receipts ran close to $34,000. W. O. Hamilton, the Kansas manager. has surrounded the Kansas gridiron with Dieacners and announces that the seating arrangements at Lawrence will accommodate 15,0(10 persons. Incidentally, Mr. Hamilton declares that 15.000 will witness the game at Lawrence. As for the game, Missouri should win. Comparative scores Indicate that the Tigers are a better team by two or three touchdowns, but the fact that the game will be played In Lawrence and that Kansas always fights like mad against Missouri, will serve to keep the oaas down Kansans are asking four to one new. but the probability Is that this will be cut in two by the time the game starts The Missouri team will spend several days in Excelsior Springs before the game, in order to get away from the excitements that always prevails In a university town Just before the big com bat or the season. TIGERS EXPECTED TO WIN. The Tigers look to have a better line than the Jayhawkers and a better buck field, although Kansas is better equipped in backfleld men In point of numbers Each eleven has a good quarterback, but close followers of the game believe Me-Williams of Missouri has something on Ala gm of Kansas. PE1SY TAKES FAST GAME FROM CARLISLE Uatll Middle mt Last Pertad Flaal Result Was la Doubt. Philadelphia, Nov. 15. Playing a fast game from the beginning, the Unl- versi(y of Pennsylvania football team gained a victory over the Carlisle Indians this afternoon, 34 to 26. Until the middle of the last period the final result was in aoubt. This is the first defeat fpr the Indians this season. Pennsylvania started off with an early lead, but the Indians drew up to with in one point of the red and blues total. This, however, was as near as the redmen could get. Thorpe's running with the ball was the best seen here for many a day. and each time he was used he gained ground.

The special train to Lawrence carried 134 Topeka high school rooters, in addition to the team. Another twenty-five went from Topeka on bicycles and motorcycles, while about 100 made the trip in autos. As a result, about 250 Topekans witnessed the contest, which was a thrilling one. The two teams were very evenly matched. Early in the game Willard kicked a difficult field goal, putting Topeka in the lead. 3 to 0. This was increased to 9 for Topeka later In the game when Sam Stewart intercepted a Lawrence forward pass and raced 75 yards to a touchdown. Lawrence made 3 points late in the game by a successful place kick for goal. Another attempted field goal was a very narrow miss. During the latter part of the game the Lawrence team kept the ball In Topeka territory much of the time, but Topeka escaped disaster by getting the ball, after which Willard punted past mldfield. The work of the Topeka ends. Hoatson and Callahan, was particularly good, as was that of Lux at center. Stubbs, the biggest player on the Topeka eleven, showed up In great shape against his former townsmen. Coach Heil's proteges displayed a fancy bunch of plays which greatly mystified the Lawrence players and frequently resulted In long gains. As a result of this victory, the school authorities last night declared a holi day for the hiarb school students for Monday. After the same at Lawrence the To peka rooters proudly carried their banner through the Lawrence streets toward the depot. A mob of K. U. students attacked the procession and attempted to seize the banner. The attack was temporarily repulsed and then there raged one of the fiercest school scraps ever seen in Lawrence. The police attempted to quell the fight, without success. Then they attempted to take the banner, the cause of the melee, away from the Topekans, but the latter would not consent to this until the policemen promised to deliver the banner to the Topeka rooters at the train. The police kept their agreement and the local Brought their battle scarred flag back with them.

The Missouri State university football team won easily from the Washington university team here today by a score of 33 to 0. The visitors were unable to put up an effective defense against the heavy line of the Missouri team. All the points were scored in the first half, the state university, putting a team composed mostly of substitutes on the field for the last half. Ths Washington team, however, was not able to make material gains against the substitutes but checking scoring.

Joe McGinnity, the famous "Iron man" of the New York Giants up to a few years ago. would have bought and managed the Topeka ball team If a few Jealous Western league managers had net knocked so hard on Topeka at the blx baseball meetlnc In Mil- waukee early last week. McGinnity was in TopeKa a wee ago yesterday and looked over the books of the local baseball association , and the ball park and city. Hs was well pleased with the conditions hs found, despite the poor financial showing made by the books of the association, and Informed the officials of the Kaws- that he thought he would buy the controlling Interest in the club and manage It. But at the Milwaukee meeting several nearsighted Western league managers Informed McGinnity that Topeka was hopeless as a ball town, adding a few more hard blows . from their hammers. As a result McGinnity changed his mind and decided to buy the Tacoma club la the Northwest league. Had "Iron Man" Joe McGinnity come to Topeka It would have been the best thing for the town and tire Western league that could have happened. Although a veteran. McGinnity is far from being a hasbeen. Last season he managed the Newark club In the International league, but drew his release when Ebbetta. the Brooklyn magnate, purchased the Newark club and rranchise. EDDetrs wouia nav own very glad to retain McGinnity. but the veteran's contract as manager provided that he was to get his unconditional release In case the club should be sold. Last season McGinnity pitched 35 games for Newark and won 23 of them, a pretty good record In any " league. Near the close of the season McGinnity pitched both ends of a dou-bleheader. his favorite stunt of old. against Rochester and won both games, pulling Rochester out of the lead tn the pennant race. The next day he pitched again, and also won. making three victories In two days, and beat Rochester out of the pennant. In every city In the Western lea rue McGinnity would have been a drawing card and the announcement . that he would pitch would have been enough to draw hundreds to the gams. Hut some of the managers of other clubs In the Western league could not see this and robbed their clubs of hundreds of dollars for next season by "queering" the deal. Anything that Is rood for Toneka in a baseball way is also good for the entire league. On his way to Topeka. McGinnity stopped over In Kansas City and visited Joe Crisp, the fat catcher whom Topeka purchased from Newark two 1 years ago for $1,000 In cold cash. When he reported In Topeka Crisp was suffering with a bad attack of swelled head and did not try to get into condition nor to play the ball he was capable of. Crisp told McGinnity In Kansas City that he Is ager to get back into the game. McGinnity thinks well enough of Crisp that he Informed President A. M. Catlln of the locals, that he might want to buy the catcher' next season. Crisp still belongs to Topeka. but the locals would rather have the money than him. HAD TO DO IT. "Why did you strike the deceased on the head with an oar after h had rocked the boat and fallen out?" "Because ha knew how to swim." Houston Post. no right to kick the ball but was allowed to get away with It, and the play started Missouri s downfall. Another fumbled punt gave Ames a second touchdown and the Tigers were routed. Coach Brewer said after the game that his team was as good as the Ames eleven, with the luck even. Missouri scored three touchdowns against Drake on the Des Moines rectangle, but couldn't ram the oval across the Ames line on Rollins field. Which would Indicate that Coach Wlll'ams has a far better line than Coach Griffith. On the other hand. Kansas City men who saw the Missouri-Drake game, say that when the Drake backfleld stars, on the side lines with Injuries, were thrust into the going In the last period, the Birds simply ran away from the Tigers. Had these men been in the game all the way, Drake would have defeated Missouri, according to persons who saw the combat. Ames probably will show a better line than Drake, but the Birds will display a backfield of greater brilliance than the Aggie quartet. Ames has one great end In Nagle, an All-Valley end, according to men who have seen him In several games. Minnesota couldn't score a touchdown against the Iowans. Can the Drake eleven turn a trick the Gophers couldn't? If they can. they may beat Clyde Williams' men- Ames should trim Drake. If dope is working.
