Sporting Life.
The eyes of the members of the football world
are expectantly centered on the outcome of the
great game this afternoon on the University cam
pus between Coach Holmes' "rah-rah" lads and the
husky gents who make up the National guard elev
en. It will undoubtedly be the fiercest battle of the
season on a local gridiron, and the feeling between
the members of both elevens has been so worked
up by stories about them, whether true or other
wise, that in all probability there will be much bad
blood shown and good blood spilt, a fact much to
bo deplored and one which, if it proves true, will
be a grievous blow at the glorious game in this
This is all on account of the revival of the old
cantankerous spirit of rivalry between the Salt
Lake High School and the University, which dates
back for years and at one time almost amounted
to a feud. Even now when an adherent of the
Guards and there are hundreds of them meets
up with a University opponent on the street or
other public place, and converse for about three
minutes, there is usually a mix to close the meet
ingno benediction is asked for.
The High School and L. D. S. student bodies
will go en masse to root for the National Guards
team, which is made up almost wholly of former
players on representative teams from those insti
tutions, and will give back yell for yell to the sup
porters of the crimson and white. In a word, it
will be a game for your whiskers.
Last Saturday's showing of the University
against the lighter Colorado eleven was a sad dis
appointment to their admirers who, when the two
elevens lined up, only wondered how large a
score the boys from the East bench would roll up
in the time allotted them. But the Coloradoans
were there with the goods and peddled them out to
the big brawnies with the result that only for the
retirement of Ft. Collins' best men from the game,
one on account of simply running himeslf out from
being sent to carry the ball so often, and the other
for being the coach of the team, although he was
allowed to start in the game, the University's goal
line would have been crossed for the first time this
Team work alone was accountable for the great
showing of the visitors. Whenever the man with
the ball was sent into the line all the rest of the
eleven were at his back pushing, shoving and

dragging him along for some sort of a gain, even
were it only a yard. The Colorado quarterback,
too, was a whole team in himself, getting the plays
off quickly and with rare judgment and slipping
into the interference like a flash. He soon sized up
the 'Varsity's weak place, which was at right end
tackle, and banged away at it until a touchdown
seemed imminent.
On the other hand, the 'Varsity was slow in
every move and seemed to lack the necessary gin
ger, the quicker opponents sifting through the line
and piling up the play almost before it was started.
However, it undoubtedly proved of great value to
the University team to meet with that kind of
football, and they have undoubtedly profited by it,
as they will show in this afternoon's game,
The game with the eleven from the Leland
Stanford University of California was clinched
last week, and the Golden Gate lads sent word on
hero for the Utah management to reserve 300 seats
in the grandstand to accommodate the enthusiastic
crowd of rooters who will come on the excursion.
Tho All Hallows team went to an early grave
during the past week, owing to not only poor
coaching and material, but from the fact that they
failed to march over the small Collegiate Institute
team at will. The latter eleven came near disband

Some time ago a member of this paper took his
little yen-hook, stretched himself out on a divan,
rolled a little pill, lit the pipe and smoked, and this
is what he dreamed: Baseball run in a rattling

goods. A splendid team one year ago. Everybody
satisfied. Last spring, new season opens. Bad

around, sees another grafter with a wad he had
