posed that Fremont ha been similarly
advised. Mr. Milan has called a mooting

sent from this city. It Is believed that
Herti Felt, the league president, will at

the supporters of iho Hastings club have

that somcono should be sent to repre

CH1CAOO, Nov. 4.The defeat of Chi
cago by a decisive score by Wisconsin
and the 'comparatively poor showing by
Minnesota, which got the gome from
Illinois .by a much smaller score than
was expected, were the rtaiures of tho
"big nine"' conference games Tuesday.
Chicago s expected to Improve much In
later games and has an excellent chance
with Minnesota, according to experts,
who have followed tho. Midway team's
Although Wisconsin defeated Btagg'a
men, 31 to 12, the Chicago team played
a. flno Individual game. Team work was
what was lacking and Wisconsin's line
proved to have all the stono wall quail
ties that had been attributed to It. Two
points In favor of Wisconsin were low
running and hard taclillngv The first
will gain ground against any tearn. It
usually took three or four Chicago tack
lors to bring down, a Wisconsin runner,
while it seldom required moro than one
WIsconslnlan' to bring down his opponent.
Minnesota 11m Chance.
That the result of the gamo leaves the
result of tho championship between Min
nesota and Wisconsin is tho forecast that
has the greatest currency among confer
ence foot ball men. Though tho Mlnne
sotans played a somewhat disappointing
gamo against Illinois, tho Urbana team
still is an almost unknown quantity an
to Its own qualities and tho Minnesota
team- figures to be ono of tho strongest
playing. Two weeks elapse before Wis
consin and Minnesota meet and much
improvement in the far northern team
may bo looked for in that time. The
same is true of Chicago, which may up
set Minnesota's hopes.

And' Varsity of Omaha
To Meet Saturday
As a result of the Omahn-Boatrlce High
school game being played Friday, instead
of Baturday of this week, the Crelgbton
university of Omaha gamo will bo ths
only gridiron battle in Omaha Saturday.
Tho gamo will be played on the Crelghton
field. Ths managements at both insti
tutions aro working hard to havo a record-breaking
crowd. The reason for
this Is because It is thfa only game of tho
season when tho two Institutions cont
together to settle the athletlo supremacy
not only of Omaha, but of the state.
While tho followers of both teams are
expecting the Crelghton squad to win,
thoy ore expecting the younger tenm to
put up a stubborn fight and to contest
every Inch their opponents gain. Because
Crelghton Is not a member of the Ne
brasku Intercollegiate Athletlo associa
tion tne members or that league havo
never taken CrelghtonMnto consideration
tn reckoning the championship of Ne
braska. Now tho University of Omaha
Is playing Crelghton nnd It Is a member
of the Nebrsska association, so by com
parative scores the relative strength of
Crelghton and Nebraska Wesleyan. which
is the strongest In the organisation, may
be Judged. Otnaba played the Methodists
and after recovering from stage frleht
In the first quarter played on almost
