BASEBALL SPORTS OF ALL SORTS BOXING
HEAVY FIELD HELPS MAROONS
By Mark Shields
Reading the predictions of various
football coaches as to the chances"
of their teams in today's games, -we
come to the conclusion that all "will
be lucky to play through four pe
riods. The fragile football men are
all on the hospital list until a few
minutes before game time.
At Urbana five Illinois regulars
are supposed to be out of the game
because of injuries, and the Maize
and Blue claims to be scared to death
at the prospect of an Ohio defeat
These fears may all be well founded,
but bear reports are so common to
the grid game that it is well not to
put much faith in them.
Chicago and Northwestern will
play on a heavy field this afternoon,
and this is much to the advantage of
the Maroons. Stagg has the heavier
team, and the speed of the Purple
will be largely nullified by slow turf.
On straight football, which should be
the best ground gainer today, Chica
go has all the edge.
Stagg's backs are good and have
more experience than the Northwest
ern men. They have the confidence
that came from a victory over In
diana. Illinois has cause to be frightened
at the approach of Ohio. The Buck-,
eyes boas a strong attack, patterned
much after that of the state team. It
is an open style, relying on speed and
the correct execution of forward
passes and intricate formations for
gains. The field at Urhana is also"
heavy, which portends a low score.
-Northern division games in the
high school football league scheduled
for today have been canceled. Pres.
Weeghman of the Cub park, where
the games were to have been played,
wanted $300 for the use of his field,
and the preps couldn't pay this
much. Under ordinary conditions
the charge is only $200, but on a wet
field,' where the diamond turf is en
dangered, Weeghman charges more.
The North Siders may switch future
games to Tigers'park, 47th 'and Lake
sts. All North Side contests will be
advanced a week. Nov. 18 was left
open when the schedule was ar
ranged and this takes care of today's
