Fa c tteville. Ark.. Nov. 13. The University of Oklahoma football team clinched the championship of the Southwestern Athletic association here today by defeating the University of Arkansas by the score of 23 to 0. OntTjiayed in all departments of the rame! Arkansas made a splendid fight against the undefeated Oklahoma machine, and it was not until the final period that the Sooners were able to display the full measure of their superiority. Up until that time, the Arkansas backs had spilled manv an Oklahoma pass which looked good for long gains. Arkansas' chance to store was lost through fumbling and lack of team work at critical moments. In the final quarter Oklahoma carried the ball at will down the field, the feature of the game coming in this period when Montgomery blocked an Arkansas place kick and ran SO yards for a touchdown. Oklahoma was penalized 110 yards during the game, while Arkansas lost 65 yards on penalties. Oklahoma's famed overhead game was broken up by Arkansas In the first period and the Sooners were unable to cross the goal line. Time after time, well-planned forward passes were broken up or incompleted. The quarter ended with the ball on the Arkansas IS-yard line and the visit, ors appeared to be improving in the offensive. Score: End first quarter, Oklahoma 0, Arkansas 0. SCORED AGAIN" 1" SECOND. Second quarter: Oklahoma scored from 6-yard line on a series of line plunges by Capshaw, star right half. Oklahoma's forward passes failed repeatedly and were Intercepted by Davidson and Harding. Capshaw was the only Oklahoma back who could gain on Arkansas' line. Frap-pia, Arkansas full back, and Hale, tackle, broke up Oklahoma's plays before they were well started. Davidson and Skillerm made repeated gains through Oklahoma's line and around ends, while Frappla hit the line for long gains. Fumbling of punts by Arkansas backs at critical moments were responsible for Oklahoma's score. Geyer. of Oklahoma, failed to kick goal. A place kick at the last of the- quarter by Geyer went wild. THIRD PERIOD, Third quarter: Oklahoma kicked to Arkansas, who to"k the ball with a rush and after a series of line plunges and runs by Skillerm. Frappia. Hardin and Davidson, took the ball to Oklahoma's 30-yard line, where an Arkansas fumble was recovered by Capshaw. Capshaw went 40 yards around Arkansas' right end and then through right tackle for four. A pass for 15 and line plunges by Capshaw took the ball to Arkansas' 5-yard line. Geyer went over for Oklahoma's second touchdown and kicked goal. Quarter ended with ball on Arkansas' 30-yard line. Score, end third quarter: Oklahoma 14, Arkansas 0. FOURTH PERIOD. Fourth period: Oklahoma opened up bewildering series of forward passes, end runs and line plunges that Arkansas couldn't stop. After rushing ball to 6-yard line Geyer went over and kicked goal. Six minutes later Montgomery blocked an attempted place kick by Arkansas, picked up tiie ball and ran 80 yards for Oklahoma's fourth score. Geyer kicked goal.

Philadelphia, Nov. 13. Pennsylvania and Michigan fought their annual football battle on Franklin field todav and neither side was able to score. It was a curious fact that each team had been defeated the last three times it had met an opponent on the gridiron and In the fourth effort neither was able to gain a victory over the other. The game was a disappointment to the followers of the teams. Pennsylvania entered the contest a slight favorite, while the Michigan supporters felt confident the team would take a victory west with them. Both teams put up fairly good football. Pennsylvania had more chance than Michigan, but when in the last ditch. the westerners always braced. ILLINOIS OUTCLASSED WISCONSIN Victors Never Mere in Danger of Defeat and Goal AVas Threatened but Once. Champaign. 111., Nov. 13. In a game generally devoid of features Illinois downed Wisconsin this afternoon by the safe margin o? 1" to 3. Suppkes champions never were in danger of defeat, as there was onlyone instance when the Cardinals were in striking distance of their goal. I'ogue did not start for the mini, but was allowed to play almost all of the second half. The little halfback, with Clark and Macomber,' were the stars for the Illini. while L. Simpson showed well for the visitors. Both aggregations fought to the finish, but the champions plainly outclassed Wisconsin.

FRANK ZEHRUNO OF LINCOLN TO LEAD WESTERN LEAGUE Said to Have Five Votes Pledged, In-eluding Topeka Others May Make It Unanimous. Special to The CioltaL Denver, Colo., Nov. 13. Frank Zeh-rung, of Lincoln, Neb., will be the next president of the Western league, according to a dispatch received here from Edward Hanlon, of Sioux City, that the .Lincoln man had five votes, Sioux City, Omaha, Topeka, Lincoln and Wichita, pledged, and on Sunday he will be chosen to fill the vacancy caused when the magnates ousted O'Neill a short time ago. It is said that Denver, St. Joseph and Des Moines will make the selection unanimous as Boon as it is learned that Zehrung has the position cinched. The Denver Post, which printed the story, says: "Zehrung should make an ideal executive. His long experience as mayor of Lincoln has given him a thorough schooling in public life. He possesses above all that, true 'booster' spirit, and. to our way of thinking, is the wisest selection that could possibly have been made. In other words, he looks the parti "In addition to this, he has the brains to conduct his organization in a businesslike manner. True, he has little experience as an executive, but has always been a rabid fan. The Western league has finally a real representative at its head, in appearance, ability and integrity." USED TEAM OF SUBS Defeated Brown by Score of 18 to 7 While Regulars Loaf on Side Lines Some Go Scouting. Cambridge, Nov. 18. Harvard today disposed of Brown by the Bcore of 16 to 7, without spending any strength saved' for the rejunevated Yale team in the big game of the season to be played next Saturday. The Crimson eleven was composed of second string men, with a single exception. Captain Mahan and two other Harvard players went to New Haven to see the Yale team come to life and the other Crimson regulars idled on the side lines. Brown presented a powerful offense, in which the serpentine runs of Pollard, a negro, and the plunging advances of Andrews were most Important. The Browns made fourteen first downs, but their attack was arrested time and again by fumbles. The game was marked by poor punting on both sides, and most of the play was within the 20-yard mark.

HUTCHINSON BEAT PRATT Salt City Boys Outclassed Their Opponents Score Was 7 to O. tipecial to Th Capital. Pratt, Kan., Nov. J3. The Hutchinson high school defeated the Pratt Highs on Zerger field here yesterday, and for over an hour there was something doing. The score waB 7 to 0. In the first quarter Pratt svfrept the visitors off their feet and carried the ball to their 10-yard line and Ihen lost on downs. In the second quarter Pratt was easily the winners, but three times they got within striking distance of the Salt City boys' jroal and lost on fumbles. In the tnlrd quarter Jett carried the ball twenty-five yards on the first play, but fumbles ajrain lost the ball. The visitors made their gains on their snappy forward passes, which netted gains regularly. A 90-yard run was the sensation and was one of the best ever witnessed here. His work in dodging shower superior training and his luck of getting the ball on one side of the field with the players all bunched on tho other was of great assistance to him. Jett, Bloxom, Martin and Chitwood were the Pratt stars, although every member of the team showed great improvement in their work. Referee, Jack McConnough; umpire, Craig, of Hutchinson.

The Hoyt football team defeated the Tromp Stars of Topeka here this afternoon by the score of 19 to 6. The playing of O'Hara. fullback, and Preston left half, who made the touchdowns for Hoyt. was a feature of the game Hall of Hoyt, also played a good game at center. KANSAS DEFEATED MBOSTOM'5 FOOTBALL MACHINE Jayhawker Eleven, Considered the Strongest in Years, Was Helpless Before the Cornhuskers' Steam Roller. WONDERED AT ABILITY OF INVADERS Individual Playing of Chamberlain and Rutherford Was Sensation Kansas Offense Failed to Make Headway. Special to The Capital. Lawrence, Kan.. Nov. 13. Kansas must wait another year for a gridiron triumph over Nebraska, Today a Jayhawker eleven, considered the strongest in several seasons, was helpless before the Cornhuskers, who after the first quarter of the big K. U. homecoming clash scored touchdowns at will. Tonight supporters of the Kansas team have only one comfort. The total of 33 points rolled up by the men of Stiehm's steam roller does not equal the 35 to 0 score of 1914. There are no Jayhawker excuses. Rather, there is wonder at the class of football displayed by the invaders. The clash was. one of education for the 12,000 persons who crowded the stands around AlcCook field. It is known now why the Nebraska aggregation has been known as a "two man team." The individual playing of Guy Chamberlain and Captain Dick Rutherford stands above that of the other nine men. Every warrior who faced the Kansas team would be a star on any other Missouri valley eleven. It is hard to Imagine a greater player than Chamberlain. Although playing left end, he figured in nearly half of the offensive plays of Nebraska. Starting from his end position he would swing around for long gains. Again he would be called back of the line, receive the pigskin on a direct pass from the center and use his accurate southpaw wing to execute long forward passes. Coach Stiehm has contrived a variety of other plays featuring his star, and against Kansas they all worked. CHAMBERLAIN' A WONDER. Why Chamberlain could gain so consistently is easily explained. He showed decidedly more speed than any member of the opposing team. His great strength, coupled with uncertain Kansas tackling, enabled him to shake off most of the men who tried to stop him. Chamberlain's opportunities were improved by the aggressiveness of the Nebraska interference which consistently sent the Jayhawkers sprawling to the turf of McCook field. Distinguishing himself somewhat less than Chamberlain was Captain Rutherford. But on several crucial occasions the K. U. linemen hurled the Corn-husker left half back for losses. Nebraska scored two touchdowns in the second quarter, two in the third and one in the fourth. Kansas fought off a counter during the initial fifteen minutes of play with rightful pride to the supporters of the conquered team. Twice in this period the Cornhuskers carried the ball almost within Inches of the Kansas goal line, and each time the Kansas forwards answered the emergency and possession of the pigskin went to the Jayhawkers on downs. K. V. THREATENED ONCE. In the third quarter only did Kansas threaten to score. Then Heath recovered Cook's fumble of one of Lindsey's long spirals on the Nebraska 30-yard line. A pass, Lindsey to Holt, advanced the ball to the 10-yard line. Further than that the Jayhawkers did not get, three attempted forward passes and a plunge proving fruitless. Although one-sided, the contest furnished plenty of thrills for the crowd of 10,000. The snappy, ideal football weather enabled the players to put their all Into the game. Anv charge that Kansas did not fight is hot true. But spirit alone does not win in football. Against the machine-like Stiehm eleven the efforts of the Kansas players appeared disorganized. OUTCHARGED THE K. U. LINE. Man for man, the players on both elevens were approximately equal in physical power. But the Kansas forwards were outcharged. Captain James, who In 1914 was the mainstay for Kansas In the losing fight against the Nebraskans, was withdrawn by Coach Olcott in the second quarter. The big tackle could hardly walk because of the broken arch of his foot. Andy Groft, left guard, who played most consistently of the Kansas linemen in spite of his recent sickness, lasted until the final quarter. Strother, another three-year man who had started in all previous big games, was not even used by Coach- Olcott. Keeling, the giant Kansas center, playing his last game against Nebraska, showed flashes of stellar form, as did Frost at right tackle. The backfield of the Kansans also lacked consistency. The two halfbacks started by Coach Olcott. Holt and L. Gillespie, are first-year men on the team. Holt, a Topeka boy, was able to withstand the fierce Cornhusker tacklers enough to make a few short advances. L. Gillespie had hardly as much success in offense, but he played well in stopping the Nebraska rushes. Nielson, the light Kansas fullback, fought hard, but ineffectively. VICTORS DIDN'T NI1ED TO PUNT. On Quarterback Adrian Lindsey fell the brunt of th backfield responsibility. Lindsey's boots averaged around forty-five yards, which was better than the punts made by Corey, but punting was not a necessary part of. the Cornhusker play. Lindsey was on the throwing end of the ten forward passes tried by Kansas. Four were successful. Two came in rapid successslon at the start of the second half. A third try was intercepted. After Wood was sent in at quarterback in the fourth quarter, Lindsey went to right half. In carrying the ball he was handicapped by his bad knee, which caused a noticeable limp. OXLY WOOD STOPS CHAMBERLAIN". During his short stay in the game Wood, by far the lightest man on the field, was a real star. Three times he tackled the giant Chamberlain alone, a feat which heavier Kansas players could not do. In addition he staged several pretty runs yielding short gains. The Kansas ends. Reber and Heath, continually wire battered by the almost faultless Cornhusker interference. Only a few ol the K. U. offensive plays built around Reber's speed were used. At the start of the second half Wilson appeared in the place of the veteran. The forward passing ability of the Cornhuskes was a surprise. The pass was directly responsible for one touchdown, and indirectly for two of the others. Besides the individual brilliancy of Chamberlain and Rutherford, outstanding features of the Cornhusker play were the open field running of Cook in returning punts and the powerful all around game of Corey, whose work at tackle had some elements of that of Vic Halligan. Nebraska star of 1S14. , HESrLT KNOWS FROM START. The opening play of the game. Corey's kickoff, was an indicator of what the game was to be. The boot was misjudged by Nielsen, the ball rolling to the 2 -yard line, where the Kansas full back was tackled. That placed Kan-n Possession of the ball because landsey was forced to punt, Caley, the cornhusker general, heaved a long Riddell, right end, who was stanoing almost on the Kansas goal line. The pigskin slipped through the sas on the defensive from the start. xseDraskan'8 hands and the Cornhusker scoring machine temporarily was thwarted, the ball going to the Jay- V. on the fourth down. V Kansas offense failed to work, so Lindsey was forced to punt. A 35-'artl run by Chamberlain brought the Dan to the 10-yard zone again. Four fierce rushes proved futile. On the tourth trial Rutherford tried vainly r V!?e scant two yards necessary. ine Cornhusker captain hurled himself against the left side of the Jay-?KWktfr line- Ton' James, leader of tf ansans. was the object of the attack. Rutherford appeared to bounce back and again the Kansans got the ball on downs. NEBRASKA PERSISTENT. Lindsey Immediately booted out of danger and almost as quickly Ne- tt i. was threatening again. But witn the score imminent, the Kansas defense tightened and even Chamberlain could not come across witn the necessary five yards which would have P163" a Nebraska touchdown. Following this Lindsey again punted, the pigskin sailing to midfield. Nebraska was just starting another march when the quarter ended. Nebraska held the ball on th Kansas 40-yard line. The first play of the second quarter shattered all remaining hopes of Kansas victory as Quarterback Caley hurled a pretty pass to Chamberlain, who raced for a touchdown. Immediately following Nebraska's first touchdown, Coach Stiehm substituted his speed-mad sophomore Cook for Quarterback Calev. The youngster received a short pass from Chamberlain a few seconds later and raced for -a 40-yard gain. He was not stopped by a Kansas tackier, either, but tripped over his own Hying feet. His run placed the ball on the Kansas 15-yard line and another touchdown seemed imminent. However, it was delayed and incidentally Coach Olcott's assertion that the Cornhuskers at least are human was proven, for Rutherford fumbled on the first play. James recovered the ball for Kansas. THE FIRST K. U. GAIN. On the first play with the ball. Reber was called back from left end and succeeded in gaining four yards. Although this was the first advance that the Jayhawkers had been able to make from scrimmage, Holt gave the Kansas bleacherites further chance to cheer by gaining six yards more, giving Kansas the first of the three first downs which the Olcott team made during the game. Further gains were not made at the time by the Jayhawkers and Lindsey punted. Groft electrified the bleachers by tackling Chamberlain from behind in one of the first Nebraska plays after this. Then Lindsey intercepted a pass on the Kansas 15-yard line. Lindsey punted again after two attempts to gain failed. Then Chamberlain and Co. rushed the ball for another touchdown by a series of five and ten yard gains. Chamberlain carried the ball over. The quarter ended just after Kansas had received the Nebraska kickoff and Kansas had unsuccessfully tried two forward passes. DISASTROUS SECOND HALF. K. U. kicked off to start the third quarter. A fumble lost Nebraska the ball after four short gains. Then came two successive forward passes, Lindsey to Gillespie and Lindsey to Holt, netting eight yards each. An intercepted pass gave the ball to Stiehm's men on their own 2u-yard line. Corey's punt rolled past Lindsey to the Kansas 30-yard line. Again falling to gain, Lindsey punted forty-three yards to Cook, who returned twenty-five yards. Then Chamberlain swung around on an end run for a touchdown. His run wad nearly fifty yards. HOLT ALMOST SCORES. Lindsey kicked off, Chamberlain receiving the kick. For once the Kansas defense was working right and Corey had to punt. In a desperate attempt to advance the pigskin, two forward passes were attempted by the Jayhawkers. Then Lindsey punted to the Nebraska 30-yard line where Cook fumbled and Heath recovered. Holt caught a 15-yard pass and waded through Nebraska tacklers for 5 yards more, placing the pigskin on the 10-yard line. With a touchdown near, three more forward passes and a plunge were tried. The Nebraska defense was too much for Kansas to advance the ball. One pass to L. Gillespie came near to being successful. Receiving the ball on downs, Corey kicked out of danger. Lindsey on the first return play twisted through for 5 yards. Then a drop kick was tried by the Kansas quarterback from the 4 ".-yard line. This fell short, Cook catching the ball and racing it back to the Nebraska 35-yard line. THE MACHIXE-LIKE MARCH. From this place, Nebraska started a march which ended with the fourth touchdown. Resorting to straight football, the powerful Cornhuskers proved irresistable to the Jayhawkers. Coach Olcott tried to stem the rushes by sending in fresh men, but of no avail. Gardner, right half, made the touchdown. Kansas again kicked off. Chamberlain making a return to the Nebraska 45-yard line. When the quarter ended another Nebraska march had started, the ball being in the Cornhuskers' possession on the Kansas 33-yard line. It took only a few plays before the fifth and last touchdown was made. Rutherford made the final plunge. Nebraska received the next kickoff. The ball was worked to midfield when Kansas held for downs. Wood eluded the Northmen long enough to make a 5-yard gain. An offside penalty was assessed against Nebraska. lp to this time, K. U. had not been penalized and Nebraska had lost only 25 yards. A fumble by Gillespie gave Nebraska the ball on the Kansas 35-yard line. A 15- yard penalty for holding was assessed j against .Nebraska. t orward passes. Rutherford to Cook and Corey to Otoupalik almost made up this distance. However Kansas got the ball on downs. THE THIRD K. V. FIRST DOWN. Instead of gaining when in possession of the ball. K. U. was pushed back and Lindsey punted. Two penalties of 15 yards each hindered another advance by Nebraska. The ball again went to Kansas. Wood heaved a pass to Gillespie, making the third first down of the game for the Jayhawkers. Lindsey punted 45 yards out of bounds and time was called. Ten thousand persons saw the game. Only in the early part of the first period did Kansas display championship qualities. Lineup and summary: Nebraska. Position. Kansas. Chamberlain L.

PITTSBURG NORMAL WINS FROM FRIENDS UNIVERSITY Pittsburg, Kan., Nov. 13. A 30-yard forward pass in the second quarter counted the only score in the game and enabled the State Manual Training Normal school team to defeat Friends university here today, 7 to 0. YALE FINDS ITSELF AND BEATS PRINCETON, 13 TO 7 Guernsey's Field Goals from Midfield aad Way's Long: Run Gare Elis the Victory. New Haven. Nov. 13. The Yale eleven won from Princeton here today, 13 to 7. No gridiron classic of recent years has furnished greater thrills than this triumph of the Blue over the Orange and Black. It was a case of a powerful football combination just beginning to find itself overwhelmed by brute strength of an eleven far more finished in playing tactics. Gridiron heroes rose and fell during the struggle, but the field goal kicking of Otis L. Guernsey paved the way for a Yale victory. Twice in the second period Guernsey drove the ball through the Tiger goal posts when Captain Wilson, of the Yale team, found that the eleven, as a whole, was unequal to the task of taking the spheroid across the opponents' line. Both drop kicks were made from near mid-field, one from the 54-yard line, and the performance of the Greenwich, Conn., player won him a place among the kicking stars of football. "Pie" Way, pitcher of the Blue baseball team, shared the glory of the victory with Guernsey, for it was his fortune to scoop up a fumbled punt by Tibbott and race across the goal line for Yale's only touchdown, and the first the Elis have made in the last two contests. Way's run was one of the most spectacular features of a struggle that bristled with startling plays, and tonight Guernsey, Way, Captain Wilson and Emergency Coach Tom Shevlin are the heroes of both town and gown. Close to 60,000 spectators thronged Into the Yale football arena, filling the circular tiers of seats until only one or two bare spots showed in the great gray amphitheater. The weather and the gridiron conditions were perfect. . The ball was carried or kicked up and down the gridiron throughout the first quarter without decided advantage for either team, although Yale showed increased confidence the longer she held Princeton scorelss. With the beginning of the second period, Yale tried a sustained attack and carried the ball across midfield by line plunging. Shifting to a forward pass advance they found the Tiger unawed by the move, and after the ball had been grounded without gain, Guernsey kicked his first field goal of the day from his own 46-yard line. A WONDERFUL FIELD GOAL. As it went fifty-four yards and over the bar in one of the longest kicks in the history of football between Yale and Princeton the Blue cohorts rose and waved their colors. Almost immediately Guernsey duplicated the feat, the second field goal coming so quickly that it surprised the Nassau contingent. Princeton then turned on the Blue and soon carried the pigskin to inside the Yale 10-yard line. In their eagerness the Tigers were detected holding and set back fifteen yards, but quickly regained the lost distance with a perfectly executed forward pass. Short plunges and passes placed the ball close to the Yale line. Twice the Blue had a chance to gain the ball on downs had they tackled with sureness, and each time the Princeton runner slipped away for further sjains. until the Elis were finally forced to their own goal. Foot by foot the Tigers fought their way into the Blue defense and after a final smash, and heave Referee Tufts awarded a touchdown to Princeton. PRINCETON" TAKES THE LEAD. Tibbott quickly converted the touchdown into a goal. The half ended soon after and when the eleven returned to the field after the fifteen-minute rest Yale set out to regain the lead. Parisette kicked off for Princeton and on the first line-up Yale punted to the Tigers' 25-yard line, where Tibbott dropped the ball under the impact of a fierce tackle by Wilson and Church. Nplson Way, the right tackle from Manchester, N. H., was at the heels of his flying team mates and scooped up the bounding ball and raced over the line for a touchdown. Guernsey kicked the goal. Undaunted, the Princeton team returned to the attack again with another burst of speed and open play in which they maintained through the rest of the period and the final quarter. Forward and lateral passes were skilfully mixed with line drives and long, sweeping end runs that rapidly forced the bulldog back time after time, but the Yale team had at last sensed victory, and while its defense was crude it lacked nothing in fighting spirit. The Elis stayed each attack when within the shadow of their own goal and the final whistle found them exhausted with the ball safe In their possession far midfield. The unexpected victory was followed by one of the most remarkable scenes of rejoicing ever witnessed at any Yale athletic contest. TIGER BACKERS LOSE COI.V. In view of the record made by Princeton in all the games this season, except those against Harvard and Yale, the defeat today came as a disappointment to the Tigers and to their adherents. The defeat was a costly one for the Nassau clan, for the student body backed the team heavily against both Harvard and Vale and a hard financial stringency is predicted in the lair of the Tiger.

Well Steve I ain't the kind of a man that likes to talk about them self and boost but I guess you know with out me telling you that theys some thing in my head bessides wind or saw dust. I and Gussy both of us got tired at the same time of giveing these here showers for Fred and his girl and they wasent getting us nothing but we had to spend the money for refreshments and every thing and not getting nothing out of it. So I says to Gussy -well why dont you call them off. And she says she couldent because she had promused Clara she would go threw with them and bessides she had all ready sent out invatations for the 3d shower and it was supposed to come off last night and it was going to be a tin shower that is kitchen wear and so 4th. So I says O. K. go a head and give that 1 but call it off after that and dont give no more. But Gussy says she was not the kind of a woman that would brake there promus and she had gave her word that she would keep on with the diffrunt showers till Clara and Fred had enough junk to go to house keeping with it. Well Steve the more I thot a bout it so much the more 1 got to thinking what a sucker we was makeing of our self to put up these big feeds and go to all that trubble and we wasent even getting a much obliged to you so I beggin figureing how could' I put a stop to it. So all of a sudden it come to me that the best way to do was for me to quarl with Fred or Clara or the both of them and fix it up so as I and they was not on speaking turms and then of coarse they couldent come to our house because I wouldent speak to them. Of coarse I couldent pull this off wile Gussy was a round or she would get wise and be sore at me to. So Fred and his girl was over to our house to dinner last Tues. noon and I ast Fred where was he going that night and he says he was going to take Clara down to a cafe where we offen go to and dance a wile. So I dldent say nothing to Gussy till after supper and then 1 says I would half to go out and see a man and would be back pretty soon and so I struck out and went down to this here cafe. Well the 2 of them wasent in there when I 1st come so I had to set a round and have a couple of drinks by myself but pretty soon they come shov-veling in big as life and all drest un like a horse and I left them set down to a table and pertendtd like I dident see them. Put they finely spotted me and sent a waiter over to tell me to come and Join them so I went over to there table and says I was surprised to see them there and I couldent stay with them long because 1 was waiting for a man on business. So then Fred ast me to have a drink and I had 1 with them and when the waiter come with the check I says 1 would pay for it expecting Fred would insist on paying for it on acct. of he haveing or-d'red it, and then I could start a argument with him. Hut I should ought to of knew better then try and start a quarl on that subject with hitn became he never peeped when I says I would pay for it but jest give in and left me pay for it. But my real chance come light after that. The music started up and I ast fMara to dance and pays if I was going to dance a tall I would half to dance the 1st. dance because I was in a hurry. So she says all right and we got up and begin to dance. Well Steve I aint no Isadore Duncan or his wife when it coms to danceing because Im all out of practice and wasent trying very j hard to dance good because this here "lara is a good dancer and I knowe-1 : she would get sore if I dident do it : right.
