strengthening the Badger defense
against the Minnesota line of attack.
This afternoon the yearlings furnished
the opposition and carried the ball
the greater part of the time. Against
the famous Minnesota shift and the
Gophers' varied line of open work the
varsity stood up in form that pleased
the Cardinal directors. Mucks, while

used the Illinois plans that they have

While Chicago's refusal to be con

of t'.ie Maroons in declining to be a
stumbling block was appreciated.

The Rock Island high school eleven
must win from Moline Saturday to
even up old scores. In tabulating the
results of the ' games between Rock
Island and Moline since 1899 It is
found Moline has won five. Rock Is
land four and four have ended in a
tie. If the red and gold squad wins
this season the score will be even.
Moline has scored 135 points on
Rock Island and the Islanders have
scored just 70 on the maroon and
white squad. The worst beating ad
ministered the local eleven was in 1907
when the state championship team
from Moline walloped the Islanders
by a count of 41 to 0.
The Plow City eleven also has an
edge on the comparative records this
season, having rolled up a healthy
count of 254 to their opponents' 26.
The Islanders have scored 243 to their
opponents 49. Moline has not met de

In the comparison of scores !n the

them by a smaller count of 54 to 0.
