The comparison of weights shows the
Rock Island team to be slightly the
heavier, it averaging a fraction over
53 pounds to 14G'for Mollne. Rock
Island has a team playing its first sea
son with the exception of four men.
while Moline consists of seasoned play
ers for the greater part, several of
them now in their fourth year in the
game. Till last Saturday, when the
local squad met and defeated the
strong aggregation from Iowa City, its
showing was unsatisfactory. On the
other hand, Moline has made an en
viable record against strong opponents
So far during the season, and, with a
rest last Saturday and with two weeks
f excellent coaching, Is in the pink of
condition. The local players have per
formed nicely also in practice during
the past two weeks and are nearly
double the strength shown at the first
of the season. The odds, however, are
against the Rock Island team, and its
followers will be most agreeably sur
prised if it holds the visitors down to
a tie score.
ISesilek for Referee.
The authorities of the two schools
have secured for re'feree for the cou-
est Hugo Bekdek of Chicago, former
tar fullback on the University of Chi
cago team. He is now coaching the
university freshman team and is well
up in all fine points of the game. He
will bring a man to officiate as umpire.
No local interest will thus be allowed
to enter Into the two main official po
sitions. - " '
Local Tenm'M Record.
The seasons record of the local team
is of interest, and is as follows:
Rock Island, 61'; Washington, 0.
Rock Island, 0; Alumni, 11.
Rock Island, 1G; Clinton, 0.
Rock Island, 0; Kewanee, 18. .
Rock Island, 11; Iowa City, 0.
While the "dope" from these scores
appears unfavorable - to Rock Island,
he boys are in better condition than
at any time earlier in the season, and
hard contest is certain to be seen
tomorrow. Molina plays an entirely
different game from that of teams
which Rock Island has met this sea-
on, and the local team will -be more
or less at a disadvantage on this ac
