Notre Dame's football team start

tersectional game of the year, meet
ing Yale at New Haven Saturday. All
the players were in fine shape. Cofall,
who showed excellent generalship
last Saturday, will be at quarter, and
Elchenlaub will at least start at full
back, though muscle strains may
force him out of the game later.
Yale is not holding the Catholics
cheaply this season, remembering
what happened to the Army last fall.
Here is where the public gets a
good long laugh. K. O. Brown and
Jack Dillon put on another chapter
of their serial battle in St Louis last
night. It was to have gone ten rounds.
Before the fight Dillon was given
$750 as his share of the gate.
In the third round the men were
warned they had better start fight
ing. ThiB had no effect, and in the
fourth Dillon was arrested for ac
cepting money under false pretenses.
Brown was not pinched.-as he didn't
get any coin.

Sox Are Favorites for Last Game of
the City Series.
Manager O'Day and the Cubs hail
ed yesterday's postponement Of the
deciding game in the city series with
many cheers. On the other hand, the
White Sox were disappointed young
men, as they figured on handling
their share of the dough this morn
ing. O'Day did not have a reliable pitch

Humphries warmed up and the
chances seemed to favor Bert and
his side-arm curve. The weather
was not suited to his style of grape
Jim Scott was the only p'rtcher
thawing out for the Hose and he
seemed to have plenty of smoke and
a nice break onthis curve. The dark
day favored Spoft, nd it Is probable
the Cubs would have had some 'diffi
culty in getting their-eyes on" the pill.
Many fans wer& heard to say that
the game was postponed because the
crowd was not' up to expectations
and the magnates wanted to take a
chance on sunny weather today.
Which ?3 unfair. Neither Comiskey
nor Thomas had anything to say
about whether the game should be
played. It was entirely in the hands
of the four umpires and Judge Kava
naugh, acting for the National Com
mission. The game could have been
started, all right, but a steady drizzle
which continued during the after
noon would have made its finish im
possible, and the umpires' Judgment
It would have been unfair to both
teams to start such a critical game
when there was no possibility of fin
ishing it. Callahan was all for the
battle and urged the umps to start
play. He figured that the Cubs were
on the run and would be easier than
if they had another day to rally their
