Omaha High school massacred Council
llhiffg High school eleven with the ecoro
of M to 0, In a walkaway gridiron con
teat at Rourke park Friday afternoon.
The game from start to finish was
Omaha's property and the local lads ex
perienced no difficulty whatever In top
pling over the Council Bluffs line when
ever they so desired. At no point In the
game was the Omaha goal In danger and
the visitors wero unable at any time dur
ing the contest to advance the ball
nearer than twenty yards to the homo
A slight superiority In weight enabled
the high school lads to gain the victory
although the local team oonstats prac
tically of second team men. The high
school team has met with more adverts
conditions In the way of withdrawals
and removals this season tlian for years,
seven of the team's ablest players having
been dropped from the lineup since thj
beginning of tho season.
As a result Coach Mills sent his men
onto the field with few hopes of anything
more than a tied score. The Council
Bluffs line was fairly strong during the
first half, but crumpled to pieces In tho
second period and Omaha sent Its men
through for six touchdowns In rapid suc
cession. Credit Rap IMnU.
Tho credit for tho victory and espe
cially the largo score was due entirely
to -the lightning work of Plats, Omaha's
Plucky little left half. PlaU has been
the star of every gridiron .contest of the
season, hut surpassed himself In Fri
Plats started the ball rolling by carry
ing the pigskin under Council Bluffs'
goal posts twice In Immediate succession
In tho first quarter and followed this
shortly nfter by a third touchdown. He
was In comnleto control of the back-
field from tho first blowing of the
whistle until the end of tho gamo and
Allqwcd nothing to get by him. It was
on line plunges for advances of twenty
yards and more, however, that Platz

Tho crowd of enthusiastic rooters went
wild and yelled Itself hoarse when In the
third ncrlod Flatz obtained the ball In
Omaha's territory nnd carried It In a
filing flftv-vard sprint toward Council
Bluffs' goal and jjlanted It safely behind
the posts for another touchdown. All In
all Plata piled up twenty-five of the fifty-four
points himself, In addition to aid
the remaining points.

Gardner, tho. quarterback captain of
tho eleven, also played a great game,
kicking six goals after touchdowns.
Klein, at end, and Hughes, at tackle,
also took an actlvo part In the game,
which closely resembled a track meet
In the second half,
Tho contest was characterized by' fre
quent penalizations for holding and off
side, but was too one-sided an affair
to permit of rough work of any nature.
The scrimmage work of the game was
farcical throughout, tho local lads forc
ing back the visitors like ao much
paper. Omaha used the forward pass
to considerable advantage,' although a
number of attempts at forwarding the
balol In this manner failed.
Kelley, the speedy lltt'.e quarter on
the high Bchool second team, was used
In the last period, Gardner being shitted
to the line. With victory already
perched on their standards the team
showed up equally well under Kelly's
generalship as under Gardner and tho
gamo ended with a blank score for the
Mcintosh Warn Actlre.
The fast work on Council Bluffs' part
was executed by Mcintosh, quarterback,
