The very mention of these teams opposing eacii
other sets the nerves tingling and blood surging faster.
To-day is the day, 2:30 the time, and Georgetown
Field the place, for the fifteenth meeting of these
rival football teams.
The one Question asked on the streets esterday
was, "Which do you think will win? Georgetown or

wcWnonmnns. amonrr whom are numbered hundreds of George
town alumni, who have followed the career of Capt. Hegarty's eleven
this season, cannot see where Virginia has a look-in.
On the other hand, graduates from Virginia and Washington
harbors many of them declare that the team which faces Georgetown
to-day will be a representative one, an eleven which will dipute every
inch, and battle like men fighting for their lives.
Georgetowns coaches, .Messrs
Gargan and Bcnnis, feel confident
that their charges will come
through with flying colors, but
look for a hard game.

it would not be surprising if Virginia
held the score down to one lone touch
down and a goal -from the field, and It
is a cinch that if the HUltoppers fumble
the ball, there will be trouble.
Claim has been made that Virginia has

ed that every member of the team with
the possible exception of Capt. Hegarty,
is in tiptop condition, and able to stand
a grueling battle.
Georgetown's attack will differ but
little from last year's stjie, delayed
passes and split plays will be counted
upon to gain ground and falling In these

Tha betting -last night around town

victories of trio HiUtoppers. and their
showing against the Indians has thrown
a scare in the Orange and Blue camp,
and while a few of the students have
made several small bets, there Is no real
money in sight.
After a walk around town last night,
the Virginia team was jscnt to bed by
"Pop" Lanlgan, and the athletes all were
