TAYLORVILLE, Oct, 19( Special to the Herald) Taylorville used the aerial route to great advantage against the Carlinville team in Sunday's game defeating the visitors 78-0. Although line plunging was resorted to at times, the visitors were the strongest ill that department of the game, and few gains were made in that way. Mullins and Bangert proved to be the stars of, the game and got away for long runs arounu" end. Taylorville Scores Early. , Taylorville started scoring early in tile game and made it 30-0 by the end of the first half. Many subs were put in in the second half and they were even more effective in scoring than the first string men. as the visitors lost heart and were rushld off their feet time after time. Quick, snappy work on the part of the Taylorville backfield men in get-tins off their forward passes, completely baffled the Carlinville defense. About 1500 persons saw the game. Millikin Has Real Foe V In Lombard Saturday Galesburg Team Springs Surprise and Holds St. Louis U. to Scoreless Tie; First Big Game at Home. or Credit or Credit WILL The Only Daylight Furniture Store in Decatur Important as Millikin victory ever Bradley was in its r-elation to the football championship in the "Little 19" conference this year, the real surprise in conference circles came in the scoreless tie to which Lombard held St. Louis University in St. Louis Saturday. The game Kgainst St. Louis is the first real test of strength which the northerners have undergone this season. - That the Galesburg aggregation has a strong defensive team is also evidenced by the score; that they will play their best against Millikin Saturday is accepted throughout the conference as an established fact in view of the bitter rivalry which exists and has existed between the teams lor years. Lomlinrd Here Saturday Millikin will meet Lombard on -Millikin field Saturday jn what promises to be one of the best home games of the season's schedule. Flushed with their comparatively easy victory over Bradley, Coach Wanr. will attempt to put the squad through a thorough drilling this week in preparation for the battle, but the result of the game in Peoria Saturday is not calculated to destroy the germs of overconfidence which threatened to develop into an epidemic, not only in the squad but in the school as fce!L Lombard is essentially a dark horse in conference circles and football seems to be the hobby of the Northerners. That tliey will give the big blue team a hard contest is patent, while in some circles a victory is predicted over Millikin. Xo Cripples Now Coach Wann will start the week .vith practically a clear slate as far n cripples is concerned. Long sig-,al drills with light scrimmage is he training program for the week, n order to prevent a recurrence of nnecessary Injuries to the team, id Gepford is expected to return . the game against Lombard Sat-rday although Hamilton who has oen playing in the backfield may a retained in the game. Hamilton ..is the most consistent ground gain-r for the big blue squad against Bradley Saturday, with a total of 105 yards of his credit during the game. Saturday, the first big home game of the season is being looked forward to by the school. An order for GOO megaphones and whistles has been placed. These will be distributed' among the students before the game Saturday- In addition several booster" meetings are planned for this week. Every seat in the grand stands and bleachers will be placed cn reservation Wednesday. The seating capacity of the field will probably bo lfiOO with the addition of five vawr 1.1 ni r lidi ltnltc cvnnrtful tn be completed this week. In addition parKing space lor i-o auiomouiita will be reserved about the field. BILLIRD EXPERTS OPEN TOURNAMENT Seven Noted rrofeftKfonnlN to Compete for Championship Hnlk Line Honors in New York.
