B. 1897, 1 I is lla 7 ll 4 l Ml Ml if R LA D RECOR HOMECOMI G UMBER VOLUME SIX LAMONI, IOWA, OCTOBER zo, 1925 NUMBER SEVEN GRACELAND WILL MEET CENTRAL THE HOMECOMING FOOTBALL GAME Is BETWEEN GRACE- LAND AND CENTRAL You can imagine the type of contest you are going to see. The record of our team this fall assures us that they are going into this contest with their best energies. After the game of last Friday the Graceland supporters have begun to look forward with anticipation to the game with the Pella aggregation. Graceland has no ancient ri- val in football for this day, but she is meeting a team that she is anxious to defeat. Last year saw our first game with the Dutchmen and our weakened line-up Cthree regulars were out of the line and three others played with injuriesj made us barely able to hold them to a tie score. . This year Central's line-up is much stronger. Her team has tied Des Moines University 6-6, and defeated Ellsworth 17-6, and both of these are strong teams. She has a fast, shifty backHeld and a rugged line of Dutchmen. It means that the Old Gold and Blue must fight to the end. But Coach Gilbert has kept his men in good shape and fine spirits. Two lighting teams will meet each other in manly sport. The side lines will see the biggest aggregation of rooters of our at-home games. The morn- ing mass meeting and the parade will act as generators and feed- ers of enthusiasm. The band is planning to be out in uniform and ready with the college airs. The girls are preparing special stunts and displays for the time between halves. Some of the committee are thinking of a big jubilee and bonfire after the game.

THREE YEAR TIE BROKEN AT LAST GRACELAND WINS OVER CHTLLI- COTHE, 7-0, AND ENDS PERIOD or TIES 'fThe third time is the charm," but it wasn't. 'Graceland made four attempts before she finally triumphed over the Chillicothe Ducks. In the fall of '22 the two teams battled to a 6-6 tie at North Park. The games of '23 and '24 both resulted in scoreless ties. But this year-well, here are some of the high points of Friday,s game: Graceland received the kickoff on her own 25-yard line, and punted immediately. Chillicothe failed to gain and punted in re- turn. A backward pass to But- terworth caught the Ducks off their feet, and the stocky little halfback ran the ball down to the opponents' 15-yard line. With their backs against the wall Chillicothe held, and Graceland was forced to kick. The attempted place kick failed, the ball going to Chillicothe on their own 25-yard line. The re- mainder of the quarter was a punting duel, with the visitors having the advantage. Braby, with the wind at his back, punted 52 yards at the opening of the second quarter. The Ducks, using a shift forma- tion, began to gain yardage, but were penalized because a man failed to reach the line of scrim- mage before the ball was snapped. The ball changed hands on punts until Chillicothe lost the ball for tripping. But- terworth carried the ball through for 33 yards, a field goal was attempted, and again it failed: the half ended without a score. The last half opened with the Missourians kicking off to Grace- land's 25-yard line. The Saints gained steadily: they reached Chillicothe's 45-yard line, where they made a poor attempt to punt. The Ducks got the ball on the 33-yard line, but were Ja. .A ----H---MW ..... 1, A-- ,. , af B- A-Be is Q 4 2:55
