Wisconsin, on the eve of tis big
battle with Chicago, gains in favor
and the Badgers should score at least
twice against the Maroons "while
keeping their own goal line clean.
This belief is based on the attacking
and defensive strength of the two
Stagg's offense all season has been
only fair and at no time has it met a
line comparing with that of the
Northmen. It lacks plunging power
and the forwards will not be strong
enough to open any sizable holes in
the Badger wall.
Chicago's sole hope is in the speed
of Pete Bussell and the fleet quarter
back cannot win the game by him
self. Wisconsin has built a defense
to stop his wide end runs.
Agar, Maroon half, may be unable
to start the game and Calm or Nor
gren will take his place.
The other big Conference game
between Minnesota and Illinois" is
more of a toss-up than ever. Down
at Urbana the reports are optimistic.
Clark is fit for a hard battle and
Pogue will be in condition if called
upon. Zupke will start Klein at one
of the halves and this chap is a run
ner of almost equal ability with.
Minnesota is relying on the smash
ing ability of Capt Bierman, who has
usurped Solon's place as the star
ground gainer. His work last week
against Iowa was a revelation. The
wise people are picking Minnesota,
but Illinois has one royal chance of
continuing in the fight for the cham
Harvard and Princeton have shown
proper sporting spirit by asking that
Legore and the four other Yale men
barred for summer baseball be rein
stated. The offense was entirely
technical and it seems ridiculous to
eliminate men for such a small slip.
Yale will probably take advantage of
the attitude of the Crimson and Ti
gers. Charlie White's fight tonight in
Milwaukee with Matt Wells will be
his first western appearance in six
months. Since making his reputa
tion in this vicinity Charlie has been
showing the easterners what real
fighting is, and the fact that he has
battled 15 times in six months, being
a winner 14 times, is the best evi
dence that he has made good.
Seven of Charlie's eastern fights
were won by knockouts and Milburn
Saylor was the only man who could
hold him to a draw. Three of the
fights were decided in one round and
one lasted less than a minute.
Despite this smashing record.
White will find his task hefty tonight
Wells lost the British championship
to Freddie Welsh, but the champion
never again cared to mix things with
his countryman. Wells' style of fight
ing is the exact opposite of Welsh.
He is a mixer, a rough miller, car
rying a punch of sizable proportions.
