Kansas City, Nov. 23. (Special
Telegram) Using all the tactics of
rugged warfare, tactics they might
well have used against the Huns to
excellent advantage had they been
fortunate enough to have taken part
in the rousing finish on the western
front the gridiron, gladiators gladia
tors is right of the Omaha Balloon
' school and the Fort Riley M. O. T.
named battled is right to a 14
to 14 draw at association park yes
The day was cold and the chilled
atmosphere together with the fear
of the "flu" probably held the crowd
to a lower figure than the promoters
had counted on. At that some 3,000
persons saw the game, braved the
keen cutting wind and the army
elevens cleared money on the game.
The field furnished a fairly fast foot
ing and they gave the spectators a
full run for their tax at the gates.
During the intermission between
halves the big army balloon was in
flated and at the finish of the game
the Omaha officers gave an exhibi
tion flight. s
Huns Should Be Thankful.
The athletes of old man Ilindpii-
burg and bid man Ludendorff have
a lot to be thankful for. Things
might have gone a lot worse with
' them over there on the war fronts
"in France and Belgium.
For instance the Huns might have
vhad to face the frenzied rushes of
"the boys from Omaha and the boys
from Fort Riley. Maybe the Hun
.doesn't know what it is to have a
tleated shoe bark his shins or a
raw-boned elbow jab his jaw, ,and
if he doesn't he has something more
to be thankful for. Had the foot
ball warriors who plied their trade
on the association park field this af
ternoon ever given chase to the
Huns there'd been a greater chorus
of "kamarad" over there than ever
greeted the ears of the A. E. F., and
that isn't disparaging our present
fighters, over there either.
The service elevens played the
game in the real way with a few
frills and furbelows of rough stuff
thrown in, but 'the spectators were
pleased, so wht were the odds?
, ' Omaha forced Back.
Omaha was forced down the field
y at the start of the game, two pretty
f forvyard passes engineered by the
, Indian left half, Lasley, figuring
largely in the advance. A medic was
v thrown back 10 yards on an at
v tempted end run with the ball on
j; the Omaha 15-yard line. But Lasley
.regained the ground separating the
; balloon line for a 7-yard plunge. The
Riley team had seemingly taken the
Omaha eleven by surprise and "be
fore the latter could recover the ball
- had been carried to their 13-yard
line. On the third down the Indian
went around the erld and placed the
y ball, "under the crosisbar. A seventh
.. point was added with a kick that
landed in the bleachers.
The balloon school recovered from
their'trance and put the medics on
' the defensive. Eudaley planted a
hope in the hearts of .the Omaha
supporters, but it was dashed to the
ground, together with Eudaley, by
, Lasley, who broke their several in
Weight Gives Omaha Advantage.
When the Omaha men resorted to
straight foot ball their weight gave
ythem an advantage and by concen
trating the attack on the light Riley
.' m:n the balloonists rushed the ball
to Riley's 3-yard line at the begin
ning of the second quarter. Eudaley
went over and a goal was kicked,
evening the score. A 20-yard run
by Eudaley and a corking aerial lift
gave Faulk the opportunity to view
the posts from the outside. With
. the successful booting of the pig
skin the scort stood 14 to 7.
" Riley balanced the score ledger in
ihc third period. Lasley shot a for
ward pass to Randels and he sped
past the white lines for 30 yards.
Another pass from the hands .of
the clever Indian to Randels scored
' the second touchdown for Riley and
the score was evened when the kick
I cleared the posts and bounded into
' the foremost rows of the bleachers.
' k "Treat 'Em Rough."
The play was rough and furious in
the last period. Anything and every
thing was attempted. 'Seven Omaha
.men were taken out on account of
"injuries. Neither team could secure
''any material advantage and the
game ended with the ball near the
; middle of the field.

Northwestern Unable to Stand
Line Attacks of Iowa
and Are Defeated,
23 to 7.
Iowa City, la., Nov. 23.-Develop-ing
its full power after the first
period, Iowa downed Northwestern
here today, 23 to 7, and strength
ened its claim to second honors in
the Bis Ten race,'
Plunging line attacks by Fullback
Lohman, after perfectly executed
forward passes to Captain Reed had
brought the ball within striking dis
tance of the goal, accounted for
most of Iowa's points.
'Three times Lohman crossed
Northwestern's line witu the ball
once in the second period and twice
in the final session, and the two
gc-'- and touchdowns and a 'rop
kick by Quarterback Kelly resulted
in the Iowa victory. Reed, Lohman,
Scott, Donnelly and 'Kelley were
Iowa stars. i
Northwestern's forward passing
attempts, heralded as bewildering,
were baffled after the first period, in
which the visitors counted their
touchdown shortly after Iowa fum
bled the first kickoff near its goal.

Great Lakes Station
Beats Annapolis Team
I Point in Hard Game
Annapolis, Md., Nov. 23. By the
close margin 1 of one point Great
Lakes Naval Training station
scored a victory over the Annapolis
midshipmen in a desperately played
game today, 7 to 6. Great Lakes
got its points in the last three min
utes of play when Eilson gathered
up a fumble and dashed to a touch
down and Blacklock, a big redskin,
added the winning point by booting
the ball between the uprights.
Well, night perfect wether pre
vailed for the game, which was, wit
nessed by the largest crowd 'that
has assembled for a gridiron event
in many years.
The sky was partly overcast with
a fairly brisk wind from the north
that blew across the field.
The teams played. each other to a
standoff in the first period, although
tfie middies had a shade the better
of it in general ground gaining.
Neither, however, got within strik
ing distance except that Driscoll of
Great Lakes-had a chance for a field
goal from the 30-yard mark.
The fight in the second period
was equally stubborn as that which
marked the first. Neither team
gained any appreciable advantage,
and 35 yards was the nearest
either got to the other's goal line.
Towards the close of the final' pe
riod, Great Lakes turned what
seemed to be certain defeat into
victory. The. Middies were plung
ing away 10 ,yards from Great
Lakes' goal line and another touch
down seemed imminent when Navy
fumbled and Eilson recovered and
dashed 90 yards to a touchdown,
and Blacklock, the Giant Indian,
kicked goal j
Defeats Chicago Team
On Their Home Ground
Chicago, Nov. 23. The Univer
sity of Illinois eleven playing in its
best style' and fulfilling the expec
tations of its adherents, today de
feated the University of Chicago
29 to 0, on Stagg field. The result
taken in conection with the defeat
of Northwestern at Iowa City
strengthened the Ulini's claim to
whatever championship honors are
likely to be evolved from the 1918
The local team showed little im
provement over its previous ap
pearances. Shifts in its lineup, due
to injuries of regulars, reduced its
team play to a minimum and some
of the substitues were so greenb that
they frequently violated rules. This
was especially true of part of the line,
whose holding cost Chicago a num
ber of fiifteen-yard penalties.

Acceptance by Mr. Taft would
mean the passing . of the present

The offer to Mr. Taft is said to
have been made without thr know

the originators of the idea sufficient

MELADY TO ASK
LAW TO GOVERN
Will Introduce Stringent Bill
to Legislature Next Jan
uary; Has Approval of
Army Athletic Directors.
By A. K. DONOVAN.
Gene Melady, Nebraska's fore
most promoter of clean athletic con
tests, will have presented before
the coming session of the legislature
in January a "Melady bill" legaliz
ing boxing contests. The time is
opportune for the passage of such
a measure and it should receive
The bill prepared" by Mr. Melady
is one of the most stringent over
introduced before any legislative
body in the United Staes.'Not only
doe? it contain the best features of
boxing laws in other states but in
addition has incorporated regula
tions found advisable by Mr. Melady
from his experience in promoting
athletic contests and ideas submit
ted by the leading athletic author
ities in the army training camps.
At the suggestion of Dr. George
J. Fisher, director of athletics of the
Y. M. C. A., the number of rounds
will be limited to six instead of
ten. Dr. Fisher strongly endorses
the bill. In a letter to Mr. Melady
he says,"I believe your rules and
r ulations are far superior to any
I have seen, and I hope you can
In commenting on the regulations
of the bill he strongly approved of
the section prohibiting boxing (and
wrestling matches on Sunday. An
other clause remits the license fee
in all contests and entertainments
held under the auspices of the A. A.
U., Y. M. C. A. and K. of C.
The bill provides that a percent
age of the gross receipts of each
entertainment shall go to a fund for
the benefit of crippled and disabled
soldiers of Nebraska who were
wounded in France.
Leading exponents of clean, manly
athletic sports from all section
of the United States have endorsed
the bill. Col. Theodore Roosevelt
approved the measure and com
mended Mr. Melady on the thor
oughness in which all features were
Win. J. Mulligan of New York
chairman of the Knights of Colum
bus committee on war activities,
heartily approved the bill. He stated
that his experience in army camps
showed that boxing and wrestling
was more than a mere amusement.
He expressed the opinion that the
army has demonstrated beyond a
doubt that with proper regulations
boxing is one of the best .body
builders possible. The neccessary
regulations he said were incorporat
ed in the bill.
At the request of Mart Slattery,
manager of John Pesek, the Shel
ton grappler, Promoter Carl Mar
fisi has called off the match between
Pesek and Zbyszko scheduled for
Omaha December 10.
Slattery made the request due
to lie illness of Pesek with Spanish
influenza. The Shelton man has
also recently been advised of the
death of his brother in France.
Probably no class of people is
more superstitious than athletes
Their optimism over the passage of
the Melady boxing bill is posibly
due to the old saying, Ihe third
time is a charm." On two previous
occasions Gene has introduced box
ing bills. The first failed by two
votes. The second at the last min
ute failed by one vote. We trust
that the old saw will be proven

Camp Dodge Soldiers Give
Nebraska University Team
Real Taste of Defeat,
Winning 23 to 7.
Lincoln, Neb,, Nov. 23. (3pe.
cidl Telegram.) The Huskers took
their worst whipping of the season
here this afternoon from the beefy
eleven representing the Camp
Dodge soldiers, winding up on the
short end of 23 to 7 score. ' .
A cold, raw wind held the croj4
to a bare 2,000 and made fum'Jling '
frequent, with the Huskeri the
worst offenders. Coughlin, the
speedy right half for the soldiers, ,
was largely responsible for Camp
Dodge victory. He flashed the
most brilliant performance seen ott
the Husker gridiron this season ,
and scored two of the visitors' ;
touchdowns after long runs. , . 1
For the first half of the game the
Huskers had the soldiers completely '
at their mercy, although Camp
Dodge drew first blood when Lynch
dropped on a muffed punt which
had eluded Howarth, and dropped
on the ball back of the Nebraska
goal. Four times the Huskers
drove down the field to within the
shadow of the soldiers' goal, but
c ch time with only a few yards to
go. The needed punch was lacking
and the Huskers were forced to
surrender the ball.
' Cornhuskers Take Lead.
The soldiers did not make a
single first down in the first half in
the third. Smith's attempt to punt
behind his own goal was blocked,
and Dana repeated Lynch's pick by
falling on the ball. Howarth put
his team ahead by kicking goal.
The advantage was short, how
ever. At the opening of the fourth
period Movald kicked a beautiful'
goaffrom Pacement and raised the
total to 5. Then the soldiers in
tercepted a forward pass dn their
own 42-yard line and Movald hurled
a forward pass to Coughlin, who
raised 50 yards to a touchdown.
Just before the close of the game ,
Coughlin demonstrated his . per
formance was no fluke by smashing
through the Husker line and run
ning 60 yards for the third and final
touchdown. Movald kicked goal
each time, raising the total to 23. .,
