Sunday Morning, November 2,1919. T H E D E C A T U R R E V I E W PACE FIVE ILLINI ELEVEN SWAMPS CHICAGO Score 10 to 0--Maroon Championship Hopes Capsized Before 18,000 Persons. Urbana, Nov. 1--Displaying a start- Ing reversal of form and using typical Zuppke strategem, Illinois capsized Chicago championship hopes on Illinois field this afternoon, winning 10 to 0, before eighteen thousand persons, the largest crowd that ever attended an athletic contest here. Governor Frank O. Lowden, George Ade and other notables Joined the Jiorr.scomng throne to -watch the annual scrap between the two old enemies. MAROONS OUTPLAYED. Illinois outplayed the Maroons from b e g i n n i n g to end, there being no time when they became really dangerous. The only time when they ·were within even s t r i k i n g distance of a '.ouchdown -was In the third period when the ball was carried to the Illinois 18-yard line, but here the lllinl braced and took the ball on downs. Ralph Fletcher, who replaced Sternaman in the Illinois lineup, when the Sprinefleld star was Injured, proved a nemesis for the Stage men. He made all of the Illinois points, kicking a place kick in the second period and going over for a touchdown in the thtrd period. CHICAGO TIED UP. Chicago's fast back field proved a disappointment to the 1,200 Maroon rooters who accompanied the team for there was no time when they ·were able to gain consistently. Graham, Maroon q u a r t e r , was especially unfortunate, as there was no time when he w?.s able to get loose from the agile Illini. WHISTLE LOWERS SCORE. The whistle a n n o u n c i n g the end of the game probably saved the Maroons another t o u c h d o w n , for Illinois had carried the ball to their three-yard | line when the game ended. LINEUP.

Interesting Contest to Start at 2:30. There's a pretty strong: rumor there's going to be a real football game on Staley field Sunday afternoon when the Staley pigskin artists crash into the Champaign Independents. Of course the big secret can't be let out. It's sub-rosa stuff !ut a wise football fan can do little 'fi:;- gerln' for himself and then go out and see if he hasn't doped things out right.

Wisconsin was on the defensive almost every m i n u t e of the first half and did not open up with Its beat trick, the forwad pass, u n t i l the I third quarter.

Lincoln, 111, Nov. 1.--Eastern Illinois Normal of Charleston defeated Lincoln college hero Saturday afternoon by a score of 28 to 0. The game was the roughest that has ever been sern on the loc^T field. Charleston won by means of line plunges, her backs crashing through for consistent gams. Charleston scored two touchdowns the f i r s t half and two the last half. One of the Charleston linemen received a broken shoulder in the fray. Lincoln threatened to score once but lost the chance when the team was penalized for slugging. Considerable bad bl^od existed between the two teams. SAYS WISCONSIN HIT LINE HARD Arthur Lohcnareln Explalnii U, of j. Defeat Week Ago. A r t h u r I.obenstein, a sophomore at the University of Illinois writes to his parents here concerning the Illinois-Wisconsin game at the University of I l l i n o i s a week ago. His letter follows: Dear Dad: Well the Wisconsin game came off 10-14 for Wisconsin. Illinois should have had T more and Wisconsin didn't deserve 7 of what she had. That Is we had the ball within a yard or BO of the goal when the machine broke and the ball went to Wisconsin. She kicked It half down the field so seven points went up In smoke. Then In the third quarter Illinois kicked but the kick was intercepted and "Wisconsin carried the ball to another to'inhdown. This all happened after one of our fellows was on his way to the hospital with a hole In his head and temporarily insana (gossip) and another was crippled In a similar manner. It reminded me of pictures of "Lait Generation Football." The old "Hog-piles" were In evidence very frequently and line plunges were a feature. In fact Wisconsin didn't try a pass: but Oh! her line plunges! MOWEAQUAWINS FROM RAYMOND Raymond, Nov. 1.--Moweaqua romped through Raymond at Raymond Saturafly to a 54 to 0 victory. The Moweaqua attack was too much for the local team, the Raymond defense c r u m b l i n g before the battering of the Moweaqua backs. The game was played on a heavy field which slowed up the gamo considerably. A good sized crowd saw the game. NOTRE DAME'WINS FROM INDIANA Indianapolis.

Washington. -- Football, which now holCs the athletic stage In colleges and high schools, Is considered a strenuous game, but the style of play m this generation Is a mild and tame exercise as compared to the original forms of the sport, according to »· bulletin from the National Geographic society. FOOTBALL HISTORY. The history of the autumn classic is described by J. R, Hlldebrand In a communication to the society, which follows: "Running, throwing, hitting, and kicking are the fundamental muscular operations of America's characteristic sports -- baseball, football, tennis and golf. The peoples of antiquity manifested all these instincts In cruder form. "Luzon liillmen, the Polynesians and the Eskimo and Sumatra' Islanders had games played by kicking a ball. Greeks played It, and the Roman game, harpastum, derived Its name from the Greek 'I seize,' which Is evidence that carrying the ball was practiced by them. With shoes of hide, the medieval Italians played a game which seems the direct ancestor of the Anglo-Saxon college sport. Gaelic scholars point to a football game In Ireland before the time of Christ, and until comparatively recent times Shrove Tuesday was as distinctively an occasion for football as is our Thanksgiving today. OLD ENGLISH FOOTBALL. "In old England football was even rougher than most sports of those hardy times. James I thought It was 'meetcr for lameing than making able the users thereof.' Henry VIII and Elizabeth ruled against It. Edward II frowned upon it for Its Interference with archery and also because of the commotion it aroused. In thos e times It was Played In the city streets. A writer of the sixteenth century called It a 'devilish pastime' and charged It with i n c i t i n g envy and sometimes brawling murder and homicide." HOBBY AT CAMBRIDGE. "Nevertheless, by the time of Charles II football had become firmly established at Cambridge. It was ever held In high esteem In Ireland. There, when all other sports were prohibited for archery's sake, 'onely the great footballe, was exempt. Women Joined with the men In playing it en Shrove Tuesdays. So many participated that few knew the whereabouts of the ball. An expedient, which not so long ago aroused a furore In the American sporting world, was adopted by a player who shook out the shavings with which the balls of thosi- days wer e s t u f f e d and carried It under his shirt to the goal. TOO ROUGH. "Abandoned as a general pastime because of Its roughness, It was retained In colleges until, within th« past half century, It sprang Into renewed popularity in greatlr modified form. "The British carried football Into Jerusalem when they recovered the sacred city. Missionaries har« taught It to the heathen tribes. "The reason why It ha* b*eea» a handmaiden of civilization and Is so popular among college men of America was summarized by Howard S. Bliss, writing about the Syria* Protestant college at Beirut, of which he was president, In an artiole tor the Nation ,.i Geographic- Maga«to*t DEMOCRATIC BPOBT.

Crowd Treated to Real Thrill. Twenty thousand people, Including all the players and substitutes of both university teams engaged In the football contest at Champaign Saturday afternoon, lost all interest in the important game for a short time when a biplane flew over the field and the passenger in the plane crawled out of the cockpit and stood on the out end of one of the lower wings while the machine sailed about just' above the playing field. STANDS ON WING. Not content with this stunt the aviator then crawled from the lower plane to the upper and stood on the outer tip of that wing gazing over the landscape. He then crawled down to the body of the machine and below It where he hung by his legs, head down, on the cross bar of the landing carriage. The players on the two football teams stopped the game only a ehort time but the Interest of the specta- ors was more on the daring flyer than on the hard fought game for some time. IN SPECIAL CAR. The rush for interurban ears and trains was terrific about seven o'clock. The Decatur visitors came on the special car provided for them by the Illinois Traction system and for visitors from some of the larger towns between Decatur and Champaign. This ear left about ten minutes before the regular car and It was jammed to the doors, people standing all the way to Montlcello. The crowd which came away on the special car made no seeming Impreu- slon on the hundreds waiting for the regular car. t FOOTBALL RESULTS * At Springfield, Dtoatar High, 12; Sprlnf- field, 0.

HIGH COSTS, PAPER SCARCE Cause Consolidation of Many Newspaper*, Chicago, Nov. 1.--Reports are coming In faster than ever of publishers seeing the necessity of consolidation of papers where two or three papers in a town are unnecessary.
