have been triumphs, yet in the main,
we have giotl reason to thank God
for a j ear of prosperity ami usefulness
such ai the association' lias never be
fore known. Building, as it has, on
the good foundations laid in the work
of former years and taking advant
age of every tiling gained in those
times of labor, the association has ad

morality is triumphant in the iiul-u-rsity,
and makes bright indeed the

Score 8 to 5.
The first schedule college cham

oil' Wednesday afternoon v.i the home
grounds between nbc Missouri Tigers
audi the university team, resulting' In
u victory for the visitors, the score ait
the finish belmg 8 to 5. A large crowd
watched the game, which was 'the best
exhibit hn of the nntiloivnl game that
has been put on the home grounds
The home team was changed' about
considerably, the infield! change
proving a decided advamtage, As Me

ond both played in excelleivt from.
The fast, clean doubles were effected
between MeDiaruild, lleeder and
IMiodC" that gained the good will of
the fans, belimer behind the bat
placed a star game, making three or
four sensational ft.ul catches that set
the crowd wild. Mclford was steady,
but at critical times could not keep
the visitors from connecting succcbis
fully with the sphere. The Tigers are
especially strong at the hat, in the
first inning they pounded out three
rturs before the third niain was out.
Again the seventh they 'bunched hits
ucccsfuMy, netting 3 more runs in
t lint inning.
Curtright did good work in the box
for the visitors. Several 'times we had
men on 'third and sccu-.id and no lxidy
out, but at these critical times he was
invincible, the men' falling bclore hint
in one, two three order. De.wcy at
third and Wilcox at short played fast
ball. The outfield of br.tih teams was
loiind lacking in fielding ground hits.
Itartce in the center garden for tihe Ti-geu-3
made four pretty catches ot long
drives. Our boyis hit ithe bai'i, but
failed to bunch their hits at critical
times; they were found! wanting.
From the very first it was evident
that the game would oe a close one,
and there wns actually a few yells
from ithe fans and those wiho sat in
the laboratory window and peeped
ever the cnnvnss
Itartce at the 'bat opened up for the
visitors with a pop up lly on first line.
The Ivall was not called and MeMord
and I.chmer let it drop safe between
them. Wilcox hit a ground baM to the
right field. Ilollii fumbled and Ilar
tee scored. Dewey followed suu with
a similar bull, while Wilcox crossed
the plate. Hawkins follr.wed with a
safe, one over short and tihe third man
scored, with no body out. Garim was
up next with nn easy one 'to lleeder,
who made a clean double. Atchison
made the fourth hit of the, inning with
a safe one over second, but died as
Cooper was caught out on a lly foul.
Three runs to start witli is enough
and our side opened up in poor batting
form. Cnptnin Iteeder went out oiv a
little hit to the br, Meb.arniid
smashed the first ball over second for
two bags, nnd second on Kingsbury's
hit to right. Cordon forced Kingsbury
out nt second and llolln outed .the side
with a fly to center. Tn the following
three Innings a clean, snappy exhi

again a snappy double was executed.

another assist, throwing Dewey out at
first. Hawkins hit a mean ome ito Mc
DIarinid. who fumbled while Wllervc
passed the plate.
The story of our side of the inning
is told in a few words. Iteeder, Mc
Dinrniid and King were all thrown out
by Wilcox in one, two three order.
Here is where the trouble began
again. Ti.e visitors netted three runs
on a dead ball and two safe hit.-,.
.In our half Gordon was first inaii
up. For the second lime he drove a
still' cr.ie to Itartce ill' center ami that
was the last of him. Holln hit safe
over second. The ball rolled through
Hartce's feelt and ltoun landed n
