The. only points scored by the visitors were against the. Freshman and "scrub" teams, 'who played during the second quarter. The nearest approach to the goal defended by the Varsity was made in the third quarter when the Crimsons were held for downs and were forced to yield the ball on the line. The game ended 54 to 13, the Wildcats getting the bigger end. The only accident that marred the game came In the second quarter when George Zerfoss, of Ashland, suffered a bady broken nose when he smashed Into an Earlham player. Zerfoss was playing end on the Freshman team and was showing the class that will put him In line for the Varsity next year. The visitors' thirteen points were made in the second quarter when Coach Tuttle, who was engineering the Wildcats during the absence of Dr. J. J. Tigert, substituted ;he for the Varsity, he Wildcats having cinched the game the first quarter. The game was leatured by the aggressive work of. Hayden, Schrader, Grabfelder and Rodes, these speedy tearing through the Earlham line for long gains and tackling like demons. Kinne's work at end was exceptionally good, his tackling and blocking receiving the commendation of the "fans." The Wildcats never playing until the resorted to open-fielclosing minutes of the game, straight-linplunging being responsible for all their gains. On three occasions, penalties inflicted for holding, kept the Wildcats from running the score into the seventies. The Freshman team showed up to aod advantage against the Earlham Varsity. Several men showed Var sity calibre and can be relied upon to fill vacancies ln the Wildcat team i.ext season. Of these youngsters, Davidson and McElvaiu at halfback and Poindexter at fullback showed the ' most class. Earlham resorted to open field play when they realized that their was unsuccessful against the Wildcats. Shifting of the line wus their greatest asset. With a little more team work aud strengthening of weak spots, the Wildcats should grab the majority of their games.

Now we know that we were right in our belief since that peer of all present-dahumorists and the man whose' name is a household word in .the entire Middle West, namely, our old friend, Luke McLuke, has complimented our paragraphs in his Bits of column in the Cincinnati Enquirer. In the issue of last Thursday, October 7, the following Item which was headed "Good Stuff," appeared: y The humorists attending the State University of Kentucky last week published an imitation of Luke's Bits of Biplay in the college Idea. They headed the column with an apology to Luke and to the Cincinnati Enquirer. THE STUFF WAS ALL ORIGINAL "AND WAS REALLY FUNNY. The column to which Mr. McLuke refers appeared last spring before school was out and was written by Kenneth Doris, who was managing editor and writer of The Hum of the Gadfly last year. While recognition comes late it is probably because no one sent Luke a copy of the paper, and lest such a thing should again happen, we hereby warn him that he has been placed on the subscription list of The Kentucky Kernel, the successor to The Idea, a copy of which he received and commended. This year's column which is called "Squirrel Food," is modeled after Mr. Doris' Gadfly column of last year, and it is the ambition of the management to make it just as good. Although Mr. Doris is not in school this year, he is located in Lexington, as reporter on the Lexington Herald, and has been of sreat assistance to this year's management by his advice. W. C. "Bill" Shlnnlck is in charge of the "Squirrel Focd" this year and the nutlets are written by a number of different peoAmong the contributions which ple. last week were several by Mr. Doris. Thanks, Luke. The next time you are In Lexington let us know and we will set 'em up to "what makes the Wildcat wild." Its a lot better than that Clncy beer, the excellence of which you praise so highly. And Luke, you know what Kentucky boasts of. Well, the very best looking ones are gathered at Kentucky State and sonic too. of them are corn-fed-
