BOOZE OUT OF, THE GAME
Schobinger Also May Be Unable to
Play In Battle With Maroons.
Urhana, III., Nov. 15. Gloom
spread over Illinois today when it was
announced that Booze was in the hos
pital with an Infected shoulder and
that an injury to Schobinger's ankle
may keep him (out 01 the Maroon
game. Mathers, who is being groomed
to replace Booze,' was given a hard
workout at tackle last night with Lin
err en and Lowenthal coaching him.
Shapland, a substitute tackle, also is
crippled. With Schobinger limping
the back field is again a puzzle.
"Dutch" Wagner played at fullback
yesterday and acquitted himself well.
The scrimmage period was devoted
entirely to defensive work. The fresh
men used Maroon shifts and forward
passes which were stopped easily by
the regulars. A long drill in forma
tions practically completed the work
for the game. The home coming
crowd began to pour in yesterday. To
night a big mass meeting will be held.
The local high school eleven with
three substitutes left 'this afternoon
at 3:27 over the Milwaukee for Rock-
ford where the big game tomorrow j
will be staged. The bunch, with
the exception of Andrews, was
the same that "came, saw and
conquered" at Princeton last Sat
urday. Chalk will fill In his place at
left guard. The team will line up the
seme as they did last Saturday, with
this one exception. The boys are all
in good fighting trim and with the
snappy practices which they have
been exhibiting during the last week
at Reservoir field they hope to bring
back the scalp of the Rockford grid
ironites. The lineup will probably be
as follows: Left end, Hollowell or Lar
kln; left tackle, Tremann, captain;
left guard, Chalk; center, Philbrook;
right guard, Gaetjer; right tackle.
Glass; right end, Sexton; quarterback.
Brough or Kipp; left halfback, Whis
ler; right halfback, Kipp or Willett;
fullback, Gloason or Criswell.
much. He has faith in the experience
of the men who make up the Inde
pendent team and believes that they
will be able to fathom any plays
which the soldiers may have in their
repertoire. At any rate he is devot
ing the team's practice time to the
development of offensive rather than
Sunday's game is an unusual attrac
tion. There is no information on
which to base a prediction as to the
outcome. The abilities of the local
aggregation are known anl doubt has
been expressed as to whether there
is a team in the state capable of de
feating them. The soldiers from
Rock Island arsenal, on the other
hand, are unknown, but they have
seen the Independents play and in the
face of that are more confident of
winning. They are experienced and
heavy and have had able coaching so
that they appear formidable indeed.
The uncertainty of the result should
attract a big crowd. As usual, ladies
will be admitted free. The game com
mences at 3 o'clock.
