Any seat 10c. 1911 record of tre a state champions Story of the great teams work during the season of iou. The game with Drake closes the door on one of the most successful football seasons which has Ever been entered upon by the Ames cyclones. Up until this year every body was always comparing the team of the current year with the old and original cyclones and the comparison was not always favourable to the team then playing. After this year however it will be the cyclones of 1911 instead of the old cyclones who will receive All the laurels. The boys have played a great seasons Ball they have been Defeated once by a team which had hitherto always Defeated them with hey scores they were scored upon twice once by Nebraska with a touchdown and once by Missouri with a drop kick. Otherwise they have had everything their own Way. This season has placed several new names on the list of the football gods. Burge Hurst and Chappell will hereafter appear with those of Eckersall Williams Cook Thorpe and the rest of the big men. Of surge too much can not be said. Charley Burge is one of the greatest football men in the United states today. He is not a one play Man. He is an All around Man. Fast on his feet a Good dodger and with a Crafty nervy head on his shoulders he makes an impression on every team he goes up against xxx if right leg is the Backbone of the team and with it he has made himself and Iowa state College famous this year. Hurst the commander in chief of the team is a Corker. No matter what kind of a team he went up against he has showed Good judgment and Ila handled his men in Fine shape. When it came to his work in the rear on defense he has shown himself a terror to every team he has played against. His handling of punts is exceptionally Fine. He is sure to gain on a return and in Many instances has gone Clear through the opposing team and been downed by their safety Man. Albe Chappell and Lattimer have both shown up in Tine shape this year and it has been their fast work on burgers punting that has made Ames Many scores this year. Both men Are Good on defense Chappy especially possessing an ability to dump any and All interference regardless of How Well it is run. Captain Harte and Weyrauch have also done great work this season the latter perhaps having it on Captain Harte a Little on the offence but having to take second place on the defense where Busty sure made that swing Arm of his count when it came to getting the Man with the Ball. On the line Rutledge and Hunt have the Best end of the record although Juhl and. Pfund have both done Good work. Rutledge has developed a Slippery coat in one Way for he is always by his Man and Down the Field after punts and has twice crossed the goal line with the Ball in his pocket after recovering one of burgers twisters. A Short review of the games played this year is As follows. Minnesota sept. 30. Ames went to Minneapolis fully expecting to be badly beaten but they served a Surprise to themselves when the referees whistle blew at the Encl of the game and the mighty gophers had Only scored one touchdown. Ames had the advantage All the Way through the game and they kept the swedes so Busy defending their own goal that they did no to have time to score. The game was considered Here As a Victory. Coed oct. 7. In the Coe game the locals had things All their own Way and played rings around the Cedar rapids Bunch. Coe kicked off and within ten minutes of play Burge returned a Coe punt Over the line for five Points but Ringheim failed to kick the goal. Vincent also made one touchdown and a drop kick from the thirty had line making the score 13 to 0 in the first half. The cyclones played on the last half and worked out All the reserves and some of the scrubs. Missouri oct. 21. The tigers came Here with the idea that the cyclones would be easy but they returned singing a different tune. Rutledge was the author of the new tune and he originated it by recovering a punt and carrying it Over the line for five Points and Ringheim kicked the goal. In the last Quarter Hall of Missouri made the prettiest drop kick Ever seen on the state Field. The game ended 6 to 3 in favor of Rutledge. Grinnell oct. 28. Twenty one to five was what the cyclones did to Grinnell. The first Quarter was nobody a game the congregational fought fast and hard and burgers kick was the Only score. The second Quarter Chappy collected five on a Long end run and Burge made it six. Weyrauch and Burge each crossed the goal line and Burge and Ringheim each kicked a goal making the above mentioned 21 for Ames. The Grinnell score was made by Sutherland on a Forward pass play. Nebraska nov. 4. The Nebraska Ames game was to decide the Missouri Valley championship according to the dope and for once the dope had the right number. It ended in a tie Aud that leaves the championship title to be Dpi it up be the weather. Fair tonight and wednesday colder tonight warmer wednesday. Tween the two schools. The Nebraska tally was made in the first few minutes of play by Loggren the fast end on a Forward pass play. Owen Frank kicked the goal. It was Burge who saved the Day for the cyclones with that right wheel of his. He kicked two place kicks one from the 30 and one from the 55 Yard line. Buck Hurst made the Only really spectacular play of the game when he returned a punt through the Nebraska line 50 Yards. The Cor huskers All tried to Husk Buck but he was too fast for them and went Clear through to the safety Man. Cornell nov. Ii. The game with Cornell was played under difficulties. The Day was colder than Greenland a icy mountains and a Light Snow was going Down a Strong Northwest wind. Burge made All of the 15 Points nine of which he made by three difficult place kicks 5 with a Short dash for a touchdown and the 15th with a goal kick. Iowa nov. 18. In spite of the cold water thrown on the team by the Des Moines papers the boys went to Iowa City with the determination to win and win they did. Burge pulled off another of his famous place kicks and Rutledge carried Over a punted Ball that the University boys did no to know How to handle. Ringheim kicked the goal. This game was perhaps the most important game to the locals of the season. If the boys beat Iowa they can feel pretty cheerful Over the losing of any other game. They beat Iowa and they richly deserved the Victory. Special matinee at the Princess thanksgiving Day at 3 p. In. Two acts of vaudeville. Two motion pictures. Any seat 10c. Or. J. J. Hill says he sees Prosperity. Most of us could reach that Point if we owned his railroads. Iowa Apple judging team 1 at St. Joseph today the team that is to represent Ames at the Apple judging contest is made up of messes. I. B. Johnson c. F. Cochran j. L. Tompkin d. A. Jay h. E. Ward and c. C. Layman alternate. This is the third contest of its kind and is held in connection with the fruit show of the National horticultural Congress which convenes this year at St. Joseph mo., today. The idea of an a Winter collegiate Apple judging contest originated with the horticultural department at Ames and is proving its value. From the first it has been most actively promoted by g. A Bliss of the Extension department who has had immediate charge of the preceding contests and is also in charge of the contest this year. The interest taken in these fruit judging contests is beginning to rival that which is shown in Stock judging contests. The College teams Are required to judge and give Oral reasons on ten classes with four plates of apples in each class. The prize contested for is a Large Silver cup offered by the twentieth Century Farmer and the Omaha Bee. This cup must be won three years in succession before it becomes the property of any school. In 1909 it was won by Nebraska and last year by the Low a state College team who now has Possession of the cup. Canning Mill at work on bumper transportation Many anxious faces Are seen around the Campus. No one vouchsafed any information about their grouch but it is pretty clearly understood that they Are up for trial on the charge of bumming their Way to Iowa City for the game. The faculty ruling against h boing is stringent and an example will probably be made of any who Are found guilty of the offence. It is rumoured that some of the Railroad officials have been in conference with president Stanton in regard to the matter and the students fear that a Large number May receive their walking papers in a few Days. Friday evening in Jamison shall the Kappa chapter of the Eta Tau fraternity gave their delightful Semi annual dancing party.
