THERE ARE TWO POINTS
about our tailoring we wish to
impress upon you. The first is
that in spite of the high charac
ter of our tailoring it doesn't
make ardent in your pocketbook
to have a suit made here. The
second is that the long wear" you
get out of garments we fashion
makes them really cheaper than
ordinary clothing. Think come
and be measured.

Best Squad of Graduates in Field
in Years Contest is Scheduled
for Sept. 26.
A number of the members of the
gh school alumni football team met
last evening at the Y. M. C. A. and
discussed the game which is to be
played Sept. 2C with the regular high
school team. It was decided at . the
meeting to hold three nights of signal
practice before meeting the high
chool on the field of battle. The
three nights willbe Monday, Wednes
day and Friday of next week. The
high school gymnaskim will be used
for the practice. The time will he
pent in rehearsing forward passes and
other intricate plays with which to
surprise the high school boys,

The lineup of the old titters is prac
tically settled with the exception of
two or three places in the line. The
team is easily the strongest the alum- mission to install scales in alley be

disposing of the hasb;ens. Ralph
Souders. Ralph MacManus. Herman
Heimbeck and Arthur Harms will
make up the back field with Fay Tay
lor as a substitute. Henry Kinner
and Earl Fraser will play on the ends
of the line, and Edward Strate and
Blaine Morrison will play tackle. The
guards and center have not yet been
selected but John Schneider will hold
down one of the positions and there
are several candidates for the other
positions. Nearly all the players were
stars In their days an! if they were
able to put in a few weeks' nrai:e
they would undoubtedly trim their
younger opponents by a good sized
score. As it is, howevsr, the training
of the regulars will count considerably
and a close and exciting game is pre
dicted with the odds about even.
Other Context Arranged. '
Victor C. Hall, coach of the team
ior me last two. year3. has been se
cured to act as referse. The other
officials will be choseu later. The
game will be played at the Island City

play round of IS holes, which yester
day opened the 11th annual champion
ship tournament of the United States

the young player from Illinois deserves
just a little bit of extra credit, inas
much as he had tp. face a stiff breeze
from the first tee, while the wind had
moderated when Travis teed up one
hour and a half later.
