Zim could remain at third, Farrell
at second, Tinker at short, and Zeider
would remain as utility man, at which
branch of the profession he is without
In the outfield, however, would
come the real boost Lump Good,
Schulte, Leach, Zwilling, Wickland
and Flack together, and three regular
gardeners can be picked who will hold
up their game with the rest of the
flight. A second line could be held in
reserve which would be practically as
powerful as the advance guard.
All of this is a pop-eyed dream, of
course, but dreams are free at pres
ent, and also plentiful.
Picking two championship football
teams, one from the west and the
other from the east, to play a benefit
for the Belgians, is some monumental
task. The Conference champions will
be the pick of the west undoubtedly,
but Michigan, on the comparative
score basis, will have a- kick, and
Nebraska is also laying claim to the
honor of having the best eleven thisl
side of Pittsburgh.
In the east the muddle is just as
bad. Harvard so far is being awarded
the palm, mainly because of its pres
tige in the past Smaller colleges
have given the Crimson hard battles
this season, and one held the Cam
bridge school to a tie.
And it might also be a good plan
for western boosters of the proposi
tion to determine the feeling of the
east toward such a contest.

demand concessions too heavy for
western institutions to yield to.

Flood and Gray will be in the Chicago
backfield when the team takes the
field against Illinois in the big "game
of the fall at Urbana next Saturday.
Stagg and Page are driving the
Midway men at top speed, realizing
that every ounce of resistance will,
be needed to offset the bewildering
attack Zuppke has arranged for his
mini. Macomber, Pogue and Scho-.
binger are all fast, wise in football
sense, and work well together with,
the tricks Zuppke has originated.

HE REPRESENTS CHICAGO.
Jess Lean, representing Chicago in
the Interstate Three-Cushion Billiard
League, is at the top of the hot race
for position. The Canadian messen
ger boy is playing the fastest billiards
of his career and in his last two
games in the league he has fright--ened
the aspirants to the champion
ship by the speed he is showing.
Lean's safety game this year has
troubled his opponents, and although
his averages have not been low he
had made his victories rather easy.
He has been selected by several stu
dents of the angle game as the fa
vorite in the 1914 race.
