Today is practicany the grand
wind-up in big league football circles.
And some big league surprises, are
right liable to come. As well as some
in Chicago's prep school organiza
tions. To begin at home and right near
home, tie big games in this section
may do two things. The Chicago-Illinois
game may give to or take
from Illinois the conference cham
pionship, and the Northwestern-Ohio
State game may give the former
their only win of the season in the
With IHtnois on the winning end of
the iocal struggle and Minnesota on
the losing end of the Minnie-Wisconsin
game, of Illinois win walk away
as the big cheese.
With nfinois losing and Minnesota
winning, the Minnehahas can claim
ihighest honors in the conference
crews. We won't even try to predict
what thefi nal results will be. Cold,
icy weath makes a'heap of difference
to some teams.
The weather man has played a
dirty trick on the warriors of the
Minnesota-Wisconsin game at Med
icine Hat, Wis. Freezing weather is
on the schedule.
Just a little side dope: Chicago and
Illinois have played 19 games togeth

ning 14, the latter4 and one game
ending a tie. Minnesota and Wiscon
sin have battled through 24 games,
the former grabbing 13, the latter 9.
There were two ties.

so himself. The Harvard coach says
Harvard is going to grab the con

other of them is wrong. .
At any rate the game is considered
one of the biggest of the season.
After a rank start Yale perked up and
trimmed Princeton last Saturday.
Can they repeat on Harvard?
Unless Northwestern lays Ohio
State low today the Purple crew will
be thoroughly entitled to the cellar
birth of the conference teams. Ev
anston's crew has not won a confer
ence game this season. Today is
their last chance.
For once the dopesters are right.
'Way back last summer when the
prep bunches were just geting away
for practice Englewood was slated
for its first championship in twelve
Today with a game against Crane
standing between it and the Chicago
high school pennant, the South
Siders have borne out the dope faith
fully. Crane was shoved into the game
unexpectedly when Lane, strong
North Side technical school team,
was disqualified for playing two in
eBgibles. The West Siders had been beaten
once this season by Lane, which, on
paper was less powerful than Engle-
