I FOR THE VARSITY
HOLIDAY GAVE TIME FOR ROUND-
ING UP TEAM.
Bear Stories Coming Out of Madison
Would Appear to Be Based Upon a
Desire to Get Odds in BettingOf
ficials Finally Chosen for the Satur
As 'yesterday was something of a holiday at
the university. Dr. Williams took advantage of
the time to put the gophers thru a course of
sprouts is preparation for the Wisconsin game.
Every man on the team was out In the morning
for. light work and iu the afternoon a second
matinee was held. The gophers are working
with good spirit, and as a result the team is
showing some of tha Improvement which will be
necessary if Wisconsin is to be bumbled In Sat*
All of the preliminaries have been settled for
the Wisconsin contest. The "strained relations'*
which some Madison iulschlefmaker telegraphed
broadcast failed to materialize and the work of
selecting officials was as peaceful and harmo
nious as a mothers' meeting in a country church.
Ralph Hammill of Chicago will act as referee.
Clyde Williams of Iowa will be umpire and
Coach Ristlne of the Ames team will be the
head linesman. These men are thoroly experi
enced in football, are competent to act and there
can be no question as to their fairness and abil
ity. There was not the slightest hitch In the
proceedings save once, and that was when Lieu
tenant Hackett, desired by both Minnesota and
Wisconsin, could not accept the invitation to
Scrub Is Faithful.
There is one feature on Minnesota football
which is pleasing to all who are following the
progress of th team. That is the faithful
work of the men on the second and third teams.
Much of the credit. If Minnesota wins, should
be bestowed upon these lads. When the big
games are on the "scrubs" are not seen and
not thought of. The stands cheer the members
of the first team with a loyal frenzy, but no one
ever heard a cheer for the patient, tolling scrub.
These boys go in day after day and help to make
the flrat team. They are battered, bruised and
lose pints of blood from bumped noses, but sel
dom does one get discouraged and quit.
They realize that the coach has an eye on the
scrub all of the time, andithat if one of their
number gets to going in good shape he will be
given a trial. They are loyal to the varsity and
loyal to the team. They get out and fight like
tigers, and this is just what is needed to make
the varsity eleven a fightfug and scoring ma
chine. Minnesota has a scrub teRm which is en
titled to great credit. They stand around in the
stand on play days in citizens' clothing. The
people look at their skinned faces and blackened
eyes and wonder who "those tough-looking fel
lows are." They ore the fellows who have
made possible the smashing offense and "stone
wall defense." Their activity has shown up the
weak places in the first team so that they might
be braced. All the glory for winning games goes
to th_o "stars" of the first team. It's all wrong.
Half of the honor goes to the scrub, and each
year that there has been a winning team the
athletic association should do something. If it Is
only the giving of a bronze button, to recognize
the lads who are necessary to make a team and
who get so little notice or credit.
Tickets Going Fast.
All the troubles over the tickets for the badger,
gopher game have cleared away and the seat
sale started this morning. Long lines stood In
the drizzling rain to buy the pasteboards for the
last game of the year at Northrop field. If pres
ent indications are not wrong the attendance is
going to run close to that of the epoch-marking
Michigan game of last year.
Alreudy the bear story is becoming to come
from Madison. This morning Remp has tonsili
tis und tho absence of a number of "regulars"
from the scrimmage of yesterday is noted. The
cat Is let out of the bag in rather clumsy style
when it is announced, modestly yet pertinently,
that the badgers who will come to Minnesota
in special-train style Saturday morning are want
ing gopher followers to give odds in betting.
Their greed evidently exceeds their Judgment.
Today the only bet is even money on the result
of the game, and placing cold cash on scores
will be nothing less than an evidence of pare
sis at any time. Wisconsin is an even bet if
there ever was one, nnd any enthusiast who
posts better than even money is allowing his
confidence to get the better of him.
A further hinge upon which the Madison con
tingent is asking odds is upon the poor showing
made against Uelolt Saturday. Experienced bet
ters do not usually place their money in accord
ance with the showing made by a number of
substitutes. The reported "confidence of Min
nesota" is more talk than truth. Around football
headquarters one cannot .find player who will
go on record as saying that Minnesota will win.
Thej' all "hone to. but that is as far as It
goes. There is a feeling of intense rivalry be
tween the gophers and badgers and it is generally
recognized that Curtis' men will fight harder
apainst the gophers than against anv other team
on their schedule. All of these things go to
iriafee tip the final score of a football game and
the candid advice of the writer to the betters
would be to lay odds Monday morning at 11
Talking of Score.
There has been some talk that Minnesota
should win by scoring at least two touchdowns.
If Minnesota can batter the Wisconsin line for
two touchdowns, they can get thru for more. It
not at nil improbable that the first half will
go without a touchdown* Condition is going to
tell In the fight and coaching will play no unim
portant flsjiire. Minnesota's offense Is superior
to that of Wisconsin, but the defense is not as
good. When Wisconsin has the ball there will he
line bucking that will make the blood run cold
when the henvy badgers get to carrying. On
the rart of Wisconsin the game will be a se
ries of stubborn stands and mighty smashes.
Minnesota's style of play colls at times for
smashing tactics nnd at other times for light
ninglike speed, and accuracy. Minnesota has a
more varied offense than Wisconsin, hut it will
be met by tho stiffest defense seen at Northrop
field thruout the year. These ideas were gained
thru watching Wisconsin last Saturday, and the
gopher work of last week. Improvements or re
versals in form since that time will, of course,
put them badly "off side
Wisconsin, say the press dispatches, has the
Minnesota formations. Assistant Coach Cochems
watched Minnesota against Lawrence Saturday
and went home with an eyeful of play. He has
tnught these plays to the Wisconsin scrub and
the big badgers have ulayed against Minnesota
stvle of play all week. How successful they
will be in solving the intricacies of the play
remains to be seen.

The agricultural school was to play Cleveland
high school yesterday afternoon on the school
grounds, at St. Paul, but Cleveland failed to
appear and so forfeited the game. About one
hundred and fifty tickets were sold for the game,
and quite a commotion was caused by Cleveland's
non-appearance. At the last moment a picked
team was organized to play the school. The
school won by a score of 30 to 0. On Friday
a game will be played with the alumni and
another with Red Wing high school on Monday.

Badgers Are Playing the Minne
sota Game in the Practice
New York Sun Special Servioa.
Madison, Wis., Nov. 9.For nearly three hours
last night Coaches Curtis and Cochems put the
Wisconsin football squad thru one of the stiffest
practices of the season, winding up with a
The regulars showed an increased vim and
spirit, but the team work was not up to varsity
standard. The first eleven was somewhat weak
ened by the absence of four of the old mem
bers of the team, Remp, Findlay, Vanderboom
Remp is ill with tonslUtls, and the three oth
ers are unable to take part in the scrimmage on
account of injuries and the scrubs scored one
touchdown on the regulars. The latter scored
four touchdowns, one being on a fumble by one
of the scrubi near the latter's goal line.
The reserves used some of Minnesota's mass
formations and often made good gains with them.
The varsity was drilled in breaking up these va
rious plays, but was not very successful. The
badgers have about given up hope tff winning
from Minnesota next Saturday, but expect to
hold the score low.
BEAVERS WON OUT
Election Day Football Contest at Min
The Beavers won from the Steel and Machin
ery eleven by a score of 6 to 5 at Minnehaha
park yesterday afternoon.
The machinists started off strong at the open
ing of the game. They kicked off to the Beavers
and, soon taking the ball away from them, shoved
it over for a touchdown on a series of line
smashes, but failed at goal. During the re
mainder of the. half the ball went /back and
forth over the center of the field.
In the second half the Beavers braced up,
and soon had the ball in thy machfnlsts* terri
tory. On the 40-yard line the machinists held,
but were soon forced to punt. On the punt
the machinists bowled over Gamble, who had
heeled a fair catch, and the Beavers wre given
fifteen yards. Gamble then got around the end
and carried the ball to the ^-yard line and on
the next play It was landed behind the posts.

New lork, Nov. 9.Frank Croker, driving a
new 75-horsepower racing car, has made new
track records at the Empire City track from
one mile to twelve* in a twenty-mile trial against
time. On his thirteenth mile one of the tires

The first mile was covered In 57 3-5 seconds,
four-fifths of a second better than the previous
amateur record of 58 2-5i made Frank G.
Garbutt last month in L^s Angeles. Croker*
time for the twelve miles was 11 minutes and
32 1-5 seconds. His best mile was the eleventh,
made in 56 3-5 seconds, which is the world's
amateur record for a mile.

Professor Apfelbaum was
playing billiards the other
day with his friend Blumen
stein, giving him the odds
of 20 points in 100, when
Gugelheim, to whom Blumen
stein gives 25 points in 100,
came in and proposed a
three-handed game of 200
points. Of course the usual
discussion ensued regarding the number of points that Professor
Apfelbaum should give Gugelheim, and it devoloped that no two
players, puzzlists or mathematicians could be found to agree upon
the simple proposition: A can give 20 points and can give Gr
25 points hi 100 then, how many points can A give 6 in a game
The first of The Journal's Monday puzzles has brought replies from all
over the northwest and "80" points seems to be the favorite answer, but Mr.
Loyd shakes his head and says "wrong."
The problem does not call for a cue or billiard balls to solve this problem,
nor even a knowledge of the game so send in your answer at once, as the prob-
lems will be discussed every day during the week, and a new one will be given
next Monday, when the answer to the above will be given.
