rooters -will go to Bloomington Sat
urday to cheer the team against In
diana. The Hoosiers showed in their
game last Saturday with Tufts that
they are far above the speed they
displayed in defeat at hands of Chi
cago, and the fleet backs of the Pur
ple' will have their work cut out.
Here in the middle of the season,
with three Conference games already
played, Coach Stagg of the Univer
sity of Chicago must make some rad
ical changes if he is to finish with
better than one Conference victory
to his credit The latest plan is to
shift Red Graham to halfback. Gra
ham has been a sub quarter all fall,
but has shown ability to carry the
ball. Stagg is firm in his intention
to let Pershing remain at quarter.
Stagg is satisfied with his line, but
the backfield has not been efficient.
Purdue comes Saturday, and the
Boilermakers have an excellent
chance to down the Maroons. The
Lafayette people played well against
Illinois last week.

der, right tackle of Hyde Park high's
football team on the charge of being-
over 21 years old, eliminates the
South Siders from championship
competition,- as the two games they
have won are automatically thrown
out and awarded to the defeated
teams. There are also charges that

is over age. The elimination of Hyde
Park leaves Englewood in the lead,
with Harrison next in line should the
Englewooders also be penalized.

TH&FrRST TEST OF TOLERANCE
I By President Wilson
There is disloyalty active in the
United States and it must be abso
lutely crushed. It proceeds from a
minority, a very small minority, but
a very active and subtle minority. It
works underground but also shows
its ugly head where we can see it;
and there are those at this moment
trying to levy a species of political
blackmail, saying: "Do what we wish
in the interest of foreign sentiment
or we will wreak our vengeance at
the polls." That is the sort of thing
against which the American nation
will turn with a might and triumph
of sentiment which will teach these
gentlemen once and for all that loyal
ty to this flag is the first test of toler-.
ance in the United States. Flag Day
Speech, Washington, D. C, 1916.
Milwaukee. Sen. LaFollette, in a
speech here, refused to say who he
, is going to vote for for president.
