f - ; . " v - - -7 ..... CHEER OUR' MEN ON TO VICTORY VOL. IV. Weber and DAVIS FIRST WEBER VICTIM Touchdown in First Period by Lindsay Wins Game for Weber Eleven. FIELD WAS VERY MUDDY Remainder of Game Played in Middle of Field. Teams Evenly Balanced. At las: the jinx has turned from our doors, we are headed for victory. That awful spell of defeat that has been so long cast over us was broken Friday, October 31, when our team scored a touchdown or. Davis. The game was fast considering the muddy field. It started when Davis kicked off. Weber received the ball and made their yards. The second time they failed and wc punted Despite the opponents heavy back field our line held and we recovered the ball. It was" then given to Lindsay for a run around the left end and by his fast running went around the end without being tackled. Tilings looked bright for a touchdown until the Davis quarter, who was playing safc-tv v-ns seen running inward luii-i, with Hickman after trying to get him out of the way. It was an exciting moment, when all of a sudden with a head long dive from the back. Dan knocked him down and Claude went through for a touchdown. Dox-ey tried for a kick, but failed. The second quar'.er was nip and tuck. A fight all the way through. First one team and then the other being forced to pu.;i because of not making yards. The second haii was a repitition of the second quarter neither side scoring. Davis w.'.S determined to score and fought their hardest, their heavy full back made some hard line plunges but our line played low and held. They also played heavy around end but Jit Critchlow who is always in the right place at the right time, and With the right kind of a tackle, held them down. The line needs to be given special credit. As Pres. Dixon remarked, "that line just tickled me." It is strange how Jack Croft is always in the worst of the line bucks with the man under him. Doxey and Tom Wood used their head very well in a pinch and saved many breaks in the line. "Lemon" and l'outz make a barrier that the opponents don't figure on." Piukey, who plays alternately with Tom Woods, has a weight that will hold any assault. The back field couldn't hav-e done better, Joe handled the team like a veteran always using the right plays, and doing some fine line bucks himself. "Ork' Blackburn as fullback has remarkable headwork when it is needed and is a skillful sprinter. Claude Lindsay shows speed on those end runs that no one ever looks for, while "hard hitting Jepp," hits the line like a locomotive. Sid Wilcox played full in the last quarter and certainly played a game. The student body is gradually awakening, football spirit is also awaken ing in the students, and our team is developing into a fast bunch of men. Now! everybody! three cheers for team ! All loyal Weber Students will be OGDKN, gdeo 1 I Husky Warriors Who Have Defended the Purph and Tomorrow afternoon Weber's men line up for the biggest game of the 1919 football season. The keenest rivalry exists between Weber and O. H. S. Each school has been hopefully looking forward to this game. School spirit has been fostered by the opposing factors until' it has reached its acme. Tomorrow spectators will undoubtedly witness a game that will not be forgotten readily. As usu- Grant Oratorical Contest Soon Students Should Compete For Award. One of the most important happenings of the past week was the announcement of the prize offered by President Heber J. Grant to each church school for the best ten minute address on the subject: "The need today of a strong faith in God." The contestants will give their addresses before three competent judges. The three best will be thus selected, said three to be delivered in devotional exercises on Heber J. Grant day, the actual winner of the prize being determined by judges that day. Some of the students are already preparing their speeches. We trust 'hat a large number of both girls and boys will compete, and that the winning address will be the very best effort sent to Bro. Grant. The prize will be an autographed book from him. The student body heartily thank him for his kind offer. The realisation of the head of our church of the need for practicing along this line makes us more determined to become effective speakers. The date of the contest will be announced later. It will probably come early in December Students wishing to compete kindly hand their names of Mrs. McKey or to Bro. Tracv. UTAH, THURSDAV, NOVEMBER Battle N - S-r" f K r White this Season in al the Ogden butch are confident of victory, but unless a sudden change of playing is effected on the part of the Tigers we can see the Purple and White emerging victoriously. Our men have been playing a brand of ball that is creditable to any team in the state. Our recent victories have been due to the clockwork playing by the entire eleven. Our men are improving daily and by tomorrow af- Speaking Contests Are To Begin Class Rivalry in Speaking to be Fostered. The inter-class public speaking contests will begin shortly. The purpose behind these contests is to give as many students as possible an audience, and to teach them, through actual experience, how to make speech from the platform effective. No speech can function properly unless the speaker has a definite message to give, and unless that message be properly presented. The greatest part of the work resulting in effective speech must be done, before the speaker arises. For this reason Mrs. McKay does not favor extemporaneous speaking. Young people have not had enough experience to draw from to be able to speak effectively off-hand. Formal speech will not function without well-chosen material (which requires research) and organization (which requires clear logical thinking). No memory work will be tolerated. The contests will bring to light such unrecognized ability. Mr. McKay is delighted with the enthusiasm the students are exhibiting for this important means towards developing originality, personality, and individual logical thinking. Teacher "Now, Robert, what plants flourish in excessive heat?" Bobby "Ice plants." 13. 1919 Football 3 if the Gridiron Game teriioon should be in a par-excellent condition. The students should feel it their duty to support the players in this game. They need and deserve your support. The time is called for 3:J') p. m. at Lorin Farr park tomorrow afternoon. Let's have Weber represented to a man so that we can give our players the needed support. P. S. B. Is Doing Excellent Work Talent of School Displayed. The Public Service Bureau is looming-up as one of Weber's most active and alert auxiliary organizations. Under Jacob's able d;-rection the organization is const mt ly supplying the various wards with programs. Our school as an educational institution cannot be belter seen by the eyes of the public titan through the talents of its students in public programs. A group of entertainers recently furnished a program during the evening Sunday school exercises at the tenth ward meeting house. Dale Philips, a college student and former editor of the Herald, made his i-rst (but not last) appearance before the public. Philips talked on "The Kcd Cross Membership Week." The subject was clearly drawn-out, giving the public a very vivid idea of Red Cross's work in the past years. He also used some of his own e-pcri-ences with the Red Cross workers to good advantage. LTpon closing he appealed to the conscience of tiie people, urging them to willingly give their dollar as a membership fee. Dorothy Nicholos and the boy's quartet furnished three musical numbers.Jack Croft "I want a dog collar." Clerk "What size shirt do you wear?" at the game Friday No. 5 Tomorrow WEBER EASILY DEFEATS L. D. S. U. Salt Lakers Completely Outclassed From Start to Finish. 5 TOUCHDOWNS SCORED Students Show More Enthusiasm Game Very Fast From Start To Finish. Weber's football warriors completely demolished all the hopes L. D. S. ever had of defeating us by piling up a score of 31-0 on the Salt Lake aggregation. It was a complete victory for the defenders of the Purple and White. The Salt Lake papers said. "The Weber boys completely outclassed their opponents in every department. Coach Watson has developed a remarkably fast team of inexperienced material." The usual improvement of our men after each game was evident. They are beginning to play like veterans and before the season ends we expect to have a few more victories to our credit. The student body gave better support than usual in spite of the miniature blizzard. Considering the condition or the field the game was fast"" from start to finish. The Saints received the kick-off and were downed on their forty yard line and were held for downs. The ball was taken by WTeber and after a series of end runs and line plunges, Claude Lindsay took the ball over for a touchdown. Doxey missed goal. The second period was characterized by two touchdowns for Weber. The first one happened when Dan Hickman, our super-fast end, took the ball around on a fake forward pass. The goal was again missed. John Croft, our huskey center, took the third ball over the line for Weber when L. D. S. full-back fumbled the ball. Goal kick missed. This ended the first half with the score 18-0. for Weber. In the third period, Jit Critchlow -ecovered the ball on a criss-cross fumble and added six more points to our score. The last touchdown was made by a series of line bucks and ;nd runs on the weak line of the Saints. Doxey kicked goal. In the fourth period neither team scored and the game ended 31-0 for Weber. L. D. S. only made first downs one. Weber was never in danger and played offensive all through. Our line did commendable work, holding the Saints air tight.
