California High School Pintos players watch a football game against the Hallsville High School Indians on Friday in Hallsville. The Hallsville football team has been around for about 10 years, but it has been gaining support, according to Hallsville resident Terry Frazee. "There's a lot of enthusiasm for football," Frazee said. Football is an important part of life in most of District 44 that generally brings community members out to watch the games and support their high school.

COLUMBIA — Last week's best images by Missourian photographers featured MU's Homecoming activities, Hallsville high school football and many peanut butter jars.

In this photo by Jaime Henry-White, "Little Joe" is shot off during the Missouri football game against Vanderbilt on Oct. 5. The MU Army ROTC cannon, which is shot off after every Missouri score, has a softer sound after the ROTC had to switch ammunition due to a shortage.

In this photo by Kile Brewer, Michael Gard, left, runs to catch up with Ali Woods, who is pushing a cart of peanut butter at Gentry Middle School. Dean Klempke, a science teacher at Gentry, said he would shave his head Friday if the school collected 2,000 jars of peanut butter for the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri Buddy Pack program.

Kayla Kauffman captured this photo of Phillip Simpkins, a member of Omega Psi Phi, dancing after his step team's performance Saturday at the National Pan-Hellenic Step Show. The MU Black Homecoming held its annual step show, which featured performances by the nine historically black fraternities and sororities  that form the National Pan-Hellenic Council.

In this photo by Kile Brewer, Hannah Shanken, left, and Raquel Mendez watch as Kerri Williams writes "Banish the Wildcats" on the window of Kaldi's Coffee on Thursday. The women were participating in MU Homecoming's Decorate the District contest.
