The afternoon game was played on the field near the Red Triangle tent and drew a still larger crowd than the morning contest. During the first few minutes the play was even and the crowd was on edge looking for­ w ard to a close struggle. However, when H e a d q u a rters’ big backfield men unlimbered they went through K ’s line like tanks and wire entanglements and the outer works of their opponents melted away. N ear the close of the battle, w ith only 20 seconds left to play, they were given an opportunity to have the game called, but refused. K ’s hardest blow came in the second half when Johnny Malloy, one of the best backfield men in the league, was forced to retire because of an injured leg. During practically the entire last three quarters H eadquarters had the ball and K was given no opportunity to show its strength on offense. A rndt, Schiable, Vannier and Collison, H e a d q u a rters’ powerful backfield, was al­ ways in evidence. I t is this quartette of stars that I Company of the 10th will most fear in the deciding game. The line up: Hdqtrs. 105th K Co., 105th H arney. ......... R. E.

A. basketball team would like to get games with any fast teams in camp. All units desiring dates should get in touch w ith T. K. Hudgens, Jr., who is managing the Triangle this W inter. Address all correspondence to Box 102. IN NO M A N ’S LAND. A set of athletic games, open to the entire Division, will be held by the 102nd Engineers Saturday, December 8th, in celebration of the dedication of their new arena. Captain Dieges, the hustling physical authority of the knights of the pick and shovel, has al­ ready gathered together a formidable array of entries and in view of the prizes presented by the citizens of Spartanburg it is expected th a t representatives of each unit will be seen in action. Besides the track and field events, a special motorcycle race will be staged on the five lap track. Regular army machines will be used exclusively. It is noted th a t managers of some of the units have been complaining th a t they are unable to get ' any games or assistance in helping the progress of their athletic teams. To aid them, special committees have been formed covering every form of physical activ­ ity. Why not consult the following chair­ men about your team? Capt. Moore, Div. Hdqrs. Executive Com.; Lient. DeBain, 102nd Signal Corps, soccer; Lieut. Taylor, 106th Inf., football; Lieut. Wende, 106th E. A., base­ ball; Capt. Palmer, 102nd Eng., basket-ball; Lt. Col. Conrow, 102nd Eng., shooting; Maj. Lovall, 52nd Brig., track; Capt. Dieges, 102nd Eng., cross-country; Lient. Ceballos, Remount Station, polo; Maj. Humphries, 102nd Eng., fencing, and Maj. Bebe, 47th N. Y. Inf., ten­ nis. The long distance runners will have their inning on the fifteenth, the day of the Camp W adsw o rth-Spartanburg Road Race. The harriers will start their journey in front of Division H e adquarters and will follow the famed Snake Road into the city. They will finish at Morgan monument. T h irty prizes have already been contributed and in view of the fact th a t one of them is a ticket, good for fifteen dollars worth of grub at one of the best restaurants in town, a record num­ ber of starters is looked for. H arvey Cohn, the camp athletic mentor, and the various sport committees recently ap­ pointed, are hard at work now lining up their schedules. W ith most of the attention at this period of the year centering about football, Lient. Taylor, chairman of the gridiron com­ mittee, is completing a program of inter- regimental and inter-company contests. The players who show up strongest in the com­ pany games will represent the larger units later and those of exceptional ability will be given a chance on the Division eleven. Thanks to the courtesy of the Spartanburg Country Club, the nimrods of the camp will be able to continue their clay pigeon shoot­ ing while learning to bag the bigger targets “ Over T h e re.” The officers and men are at liberty to use the club traps upon applica­ tion to the reception committee. It is plan­ ned to build traps here in camp in the near future.
