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
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
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
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

Q This year the O. O. H. Society celebrated its tenth anniversary. During this time, many
girls have been chosen for members on account of their clean sportsmanship, pleasing person-
ality and good-fellowship. The O. O. H.'s have always held the highest ideals as the ultimate
goal and every member has striven to uphold those ideals to her utmost ability.
