PROPOSED INDIAN FUND

That fund of $1000 for the In

their winning the Northwestern
pennant, is growing apace, although
the committee which has been ap

matters over until after the political
game has cooled down a bit.
The Indians do not play at home
again this season, nnd it is now
probable that unless the fund is
raised the local fans will not see the
