BASEBALlSPORTS OF ACE SORTS-BOXING
MINNESOTA AND WISCONSIN TO
FIGHT FOR CONFERENCE TITLE
By Mark Shields
Minnesota and Wisconsin will con
test for the Conference football
championship. No other supposition
is possible after the results of Sat
urday's games. Wisconsin, by vle
feating Chicago, 30 to 7, indicated
power that even Badger rooters did
not suspect The team had rough
spots and once the defense broke
down, but the fundamentals were
well learned, and in the next few
days the teamwork should be per
fected. Chicago is weak this fall, woefully
below the standard of Maroon teams
of the past decade, but it takes a
good team to count 30 points against
the Stagg line. "
Minnesota ran up 67 points against
Iowa and kept its own goal line un
sullied. And Iowa is touted to be
stronger than for some years. No
team in the Conference, however,
looks to have aline or wing men ca
pable of stopping Sprafka, Wyman
and Long until these fleet men have
gained yards. The secondary de
fense must be called on to halt them
6n nearly every line-up.
Northwestern developed wonder
ful speed against Drake, Underhlll
and-Driscoll pulling off several sen
sational runs. As Indiana also
showed improvement by holding" the
strong Tufts team to a 12-to-10
score, the game between Hoosiers
and Purple next Saturday at Bloom
ington should be a hummer
Illinois downed Purdue, but there
was little joy in the IllinI camp. The
eleven was slow in starting its plays,
and some of the substitutes called
into the game did not know the sig
nals. Both Purdue and state repre
sentatives were weakened through
Injuries, but, even with its line-up in
tact, Illinois chances against Minne
sota next Saturday are nothing to
For this much of the season Min
nesota stands far above the other
Big Nine elevens, with Wisconsin the
only probable challenger.
In the east the 23-to-0 victory of
Harvard over Cornell was the out
standing feature. Again the Crim
son showed uncanny abilityin the
development of Hckfield men. Casey
carried the ball after the' pattern of
Eddie Mahan, and Horween's punt
ing was the best any eastern man
has put on view this falL Princeton
beat Dartmouth and kept its trick
plays covered because of the pres
ence of Yale and Harvard scouts.
Yale pushed back Washington and
Jefferson. Pittsburgh easily beat
Pennsylvania. Army and Navy were
Michigan proved Its right to stand
with the best of the western confer
ence by edging out Syracuse, 14 to
18. The Wolverines overcame a 13
point lead in the last few minutes of
play through expert employment of
the forward pass.
