Missouri Beats Rolla, 16 to 0, despite Flukes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 15 January 1909

MISSOURI BEATS ROLLA, 16 TO 0, DESPITE FLUKES Much Ragged Playing Spoils Saturday Game With the Miners-Alexander’s Line Bucking a Feature. FORWARD PASSES FAIL, AND PUNTING SHOWS WEAKNESS Plucky Deatherage Plays in Spite of Injury-Driver Good Gainer. When Greek met Greek on Rollins Field there was a battle royal. The University of Missouri team, playing a team from a department of the University, won only by a hard battle. The score was, Missouri, 16; Rolla, 0. The bleachers were almost full, probably 3,000 witnessing the game. The team from the School of Mines and Metallurgy was hardy and plucky, but after a goal was kicked from its twenty-five-yard line it was apparently somewhat disheartened, and played with less spirit. Many made the score a basis for optimistic comparison with the St. Louis University team, which defeated Rolla last Saturday, in fifteen minute halves, 17 to 0. Compared with St. Louis U. Such comparisons are often more deceptive than informing, and those who poin...

Says Wabash Must Improve Station [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 15 January 1909

SAYS WABASH MUST IMPROVE STATION Chairman Defoe of Board of Health Promises an Investigation. Prof. Luther M. Defoe, president of the Board of Health of Columbia, has this to say regarding the Wabash station in Columbia: “The unsanitary condition at the Wabash station was first brought to the attention of the Board of Health by W. B. Nowell in his speech before the City Council. Conditions at the station will be investigated as soon as possible, and the board will then take action. “I don’t know just what power the board has, but there surely is some way to compel the Wabash to keep its station clean. The Wabash seems unwilling to spend money on its property in in Columbia. There are few towns of 500 inhabitants in this part of the state that do not have better stations than Columbia.”

JUNIOR GIRLS IN VAUDEVILLE SHOW On Galloping Broomsticks, Five Plumed Knights Abduct Baby. “A Modern Romeo and Juliette” was the hit Friday evening at the party the Juniors gave for the Freshman girls at Read Hall. Miss Amolia chmidt took the part of Dr. Romeo Kellog and Miss Zenith K. Jones was Miss Juliette Alden. Other numbers at the vaudeville show were a “black-face turn,” by Miss Ruby Faulks, Misses Weincoup and Tidd in their famous “stumbling, giggling and jigging;” Madame Marchesi in grand opera; Miss Alice Barnhart in a clever Buster Brown impersonation; and an old-fashioned song. The last was an illustrated song by Miss May Corvin called “The Five Knights.” The five knights, in sweeping plumes, went galloping in on broom stick horses and tried to abduct a young child from its mother. After the program the rugs were rolled up and dancing was in order. Punch and sandwiches were served. About 150 Freshmen were present. The chaperones were Miss Mary Breed, Mrs. A. Ross Hill, M...

GRIDIRON HERO TAKES SUNLIT STROLL, THAT HIS LIMP MAY BE SEEN Ideal Weather for that Sort of Thing to Continue, The Forecaster Says. This is the sort of day when the ivy flames to deeper red on the walls around the University Quadrangle, when caps are mere dots of brilliant color on the heads of the Freshmen, and the gridiron hero takes a stroll along Hitt street in order that the sorority girls may admire his limp. That more such weather is in store is the belief of Forecaster Reeder. This is his alluring forecast: “Continued warm today and Tuesday.”

The increased strength of Bryan was clearly manifest in Missouri, where he swung a Republican plurality of 25,000 four years ago to as many in the Democratic column. In Kentucky, where a Republican state ticket won last fall, and where Louisville, the chief city, apparently went Republican, he won a plurality estimated at 16,000, where in 1904 his plurality was but 10,000. Slump is Solid South. Texas, North Carolina and Oklahoma rolled up big pluralities for the Nebraskan. The so-called "Solid South" showed a decided slump from the optimistic figures in Democratic forecasts, but was stronger for the Commoner than four years ago. The returns are so incomplete that the figures for no state can be supplied with precision as yet, and only a few cities are accurately known. In St. Louis only 146 precincts had been heard from at 6 a. m. today, and these gave Taft about 10,000 plurality. Attorney-General Hadley ran about 2000 ahead of his ticket here.

Stone is now leading by 10,000 votes, compiled both from city and country districts. The returns indicate that he ran a consistent race, drawing strength equally from city wards and rural communities. The contest was the closest in the Missouri election and interest in the outcome has overshadowed the national election in many sections of the state. Senator Stone’s friends assert that the final count will give him the victory by 30,000 plurality. Senator Stone was bitterly fought by leading newspapers of St. Louis and Kansas City.
