Russell fanned ten of the National
Leaguers, but wilted in the last
frame.
" Yesterday the suits of the players
attracted much more attention than
did the ball game. The Sox wore
suites with an-American flag on each
sleeve. The Giants wore gray suits
with a bue stripe in them, shields
of the national colors being on each
sleeve. White stockings with a stripe
of blue and one of red, blue caps with
red visors and white stripes, and red
coats trimmed in blue and white fin
ished off the Sox costumes.
Instead of coats, the Giants wore
sweaters with a shield on the front,
and their stockings were of purple
and white, as during the regular sea-4
son.
Each tearh has two sets of uni
forms, and they will alternate in
wearing the white and gray.
Honeymoons are featuring the

St. Marys of Evanston won a place
in the finals of the National Catholic
Baseball League by defeating St Jar
laths in ten innings. They will play
the Paulists next Sunday for the title.
St. Marys tied the score with a three
run rally in the ninth and put the
winning marker over in the next
frame. Pitcher Ochsner of St. Marys,
besides doing good work in the box,
punched five hits, his double in the
ninth tieing the score.
Saturday's football results, both
East and West, resulted in some big
surprises, and upsets occurred which
threaten to entirely change the face
of the gridiron map.

In the Conference Purdue's feat or
holding Wisconsin to a 7-to-7 tie was
the most notable performance. The
Badgers gained the most ground on
rushing, but Purdue was able to pre
sent a strong defense when its goal
was threatened. Oliphant scored the
3JHj L
Charley White, whose fight with
Wolgast for Friday night has been
canceled because of an injury to the
former champion.
Boilermakers' touchdown on a 70
yard run from a- mass formation
through the entire Badger team. The
Purdue offense is built around the
smashing halfback, but he has some
able assistants behind the line, who
will be heard from in future games.
