Topeka Medics and Atchison Athletic CInb To Engage in Contest on Wash burn Field Saturday. TOPEKA TEAM STRONG. Several New Men Will Appear In the Line Up. "Bob" Stewart's Fractured Shoulder Keeps Him Out. . The football team of the Kansas Medical college of Topeka will play the team of the Atchison Athletic club of Atchison on' Washburn field here Sat urday, -November 2. The game is sara to be interesting. The Atchison team is reputed to be a strong aggregation of old players. The Kansas Medics have been strengthened considerably since the St. Marys game and practice by the college team has been good. - The strength of the team has been augmented by the addition of D. J. B. Freeman, chief surgeon of the Santa Fe hospital here, who will have a place in the line. Freeman Is a lecturer at the Medical college and played on the team of the Rush Medical college at Chicago at the time he was studying medicine. He weighs 200 pounds and hia entrance into the team will be a wonderful help. The team wiU be strengthened at full by the addition of "Jim" Hughes, who made quite a reputation at half bacu: on the Washburn team a few years ago. Hughes was to have enterel school here earlier in the year but was detained in Colorado on account of bus iness and has just entered school. He has been out to practice and will play full in the Saturday game. Hughe had the reputation of being the best line bucker in the state at the time he played with Washburn. Another player who will be In the game here in the future is Cole, an old K. U. man. Cole has been in school but until recently could not be induced to enter the game. He will undoubt edly play one of the ends. Arthur Griggs, who 1s at present playing on the Topeka high school team at half, contemplates taking pharmacy at the Medical college and will be on the field for practice. He will try for a place on the team after the Saturday game. He is a good player and would strengthen the "doctor's" back field. The ends will be chosen from the three candidates. Cole, Stahl and La kin. Stahl is a good man at any place on the team and may be played behind the line. Kiene will play tackle as will also Hinkle. Clark and Stilson will be found at their old places as guards. "Jimmy" Stewart will play as quarter back and Frisby will be found in tno center. Henshaw and Jackson are two new men who are trying for the halves. They have been on the field for practice and may be allowed a trial. Klene is acting captain of the team. An election will be held after the Saturday game. "Bob" Stewart is still out of the game. He received a fracture of the: shoulder blade in the St. Marys game and has been unable to play since. He will probably be able to get into the game with the Kansas City Dentals, who play here November 9. WESTERN TEAMS IMPROVE. Three Leading Football Elevens Are Top Notchers. Chicago, Oct. 30. That football In the large universities west of the Alleghanies has reached the standard set by Tale, Harvard and Princeton no one who fol lows closely the play In both sections will deny. Tale last fall had a great team, perhaps superior to any western eleven, but Minnesota was close behind her, and with Iowa and Wisconsin form ed a trio that was the peer of any three eastern teams. This fall the west seems, at midaeason, to be in advance of the east. Michigan may have developed more rapidly than the eastern teams, but on present form she should prove more than a match for Tale or Harvard.while Minnesota and Wisconsin could dispose of the next best eastern teams. The de velopment in the west this year is tend ing again toward the offensive play, as shown by the large scores. Defense has been neglected in nearly every case, but from now until the close of the sea son coaches will attempt to protect their own goal lines. Wisconsin has a back field that will make her opponents trouble in every game. Larson and Driver, when inter fering for Cochems, make a hard pair to get through, a much harder pair. In fact, than Cochems and Driver inter fering for Larson. Mr. King must, how ever, develop a better defense if he ex pects to stop the heavy Minnesota of fense. K. TJ. BRACES UP. Playa Beloit Eleven to a Standstill, Neither Team Scoring'. Beloit, Wis., Oct 30. The foot ball team of the University of Kansas play ed the strong Beloit college eleven to n standstill Tuesday afternoon on Beloii field, the final score being 0 to 0. The Kansans deserved to win. They played the best foot ball and lost the game by fumbling, twice losing the ball when a. touchdown seemed certain. It was a very hard fought battle, abounding in strong, accurate plays, interspersed with a number of end runs. It was full of excitement and kept the spectators on edge all the time. The Beloit team seemed confident of winning, having held Notre Dame down to six points In Saturday's game which placed them in the same class with Chicago and North western. This game showed Kansas up In much better light than Saturday's game and placed them beyond a doubt in the same class with Beloit. The Wis consin college has been strengthened considerable by the addition of new players since their defeat by Wisconsin two weeks ago, when they were beaten by a less score than was Kansas by the same team. In this game the Jayhawk ers again showed their superiority In their line bucking, ploughing through Beloit's line for gains of two to five yards. The Kansas line held like a stone wall, Beloit being unable to go though it for much gain. During the entire game Kansas advanced the ball 112 yards to 88 for Beloit, exclusive of punts which was resorted to a great deal by both teams. Beloit excelled in this respect. The teams were evenly matched as to weight. At 3:30 E. Merrill kicked off for Be loit, Captain Jenkinson returned the ball fifteen yards. Kansas then began a hammering of the line and by their famous euards' haclr flnri tnflrlA Ktiolra I carried the ball down the field for six- ty-five yards to Beloit's ten yard line "-where it waa lost on a, fumble. During this half the ball was in Beloit's terri tory thirteen of the fifteen minutes play. Once again in this half Kansas carried the ball down to the fifteen yard line where it was again lost on a fum ble, this territory seemed to be unlucky for Kansas. In the second half Beloit braced up and Kansas did not make their usual gains. Beloit punted the ball to the Jayhawkers' two yard Hue when Kansas, by a magnificent burst of strength, shoved them back twenty yards before losing the ball on downs. Once more Beloit tried for gains but lost the ball to Kansas on downs when time was called and the game ended with the ball in Kansas possession. For Beloit, E. Merrill, McRae and Crane played the best game. For Kansas it would be hard to pick out the stars, all of them doing yeomen service. The boys were pretty badly used up, Dodda and Louthan being used so much to hammer the line that they are one mass of bruises. Buzzi had a rib fractured and Brumage secured a broken thumb. The Jayhawkers left this morning for home, stopping over in Chicago one day, arriving in Lawrence Thursday noon. Officials: Referee-rKilpatrlck. Um pire Fisher. Timekeepers Outland and Salmon. Linesmen Harshberger and Partridge. Time of halves 15 and 20 minutes. THOUSANDS OF BUCKS. Hunters in the North Haying Great Sport Now. St. Paul. Oct. 30. Duck and geese hunters have been getting the best of shooting this week wherever lakes or sloughs are to be found. Warmer weath er followed the frosts of last week and the birds have halted In their flight south, settling down in thousands in the timber, sheltered lakes and marshes. Geese that came down from the north last week, and there are a great many of them, have been flying north again, an indication of an open and warm fall, according to old hunters. Duck shooting under the conditions that have prevailed this week is much like shooting pigeons in a farmyard they are so numerous. A party or St Paul sportsmen returned today from Lake Milan, on the western border of the state, near Lake Traverse. This is quite a large body of water, through which flows the Minnesota river, and some estimate may be gained of the number of ducks in that locality from the reports they bring home. Sunday forenoon canvas backs and mallards set tied down on the lake, covering the sur face for a mile and a half in length by 150 vards in width. They were so close ly located that it was impossible to dis cover any water between them at a dis tance of a quarter of a mile from the shore. WHITNEY HAS BIO PLANS. He Hopes to Make the Saratoga Track Finest in the World. Saratoga, N. T., Oct. 30. William C. Whitney, president of the Saratoga Rac ing association, purposes making the Union Avenue Running park the finest in the world.

Besides the plans already adopted for improving and beautifying the park ad ditional ones are understood to be in contemplation and will soon be made public. Dahlen to St. Louis. New Tork, Oct. 30. It would not be a surprise to the Brooklyn baseball con tingent if Bill Dahlen were found with the St. Louis American Leaguers newt season. Negotiations are under way at present looking toward that result. Dahlen and the Brooklyn club differ over the salary question to the extent of $200 and the officials refuse to in crease their offer 1 cent. Dahlen, like Daly, is out for the money andi vill prob ably give an attentive ear to the Ameri can League people provided the offer Is surrounded by copper-lined, riveted and rock-bottomed certainty as to Dahlen getting the salary. Nebraska and Wisconsin Next. Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 30. The defeat of the Iowa Agriculturists of Ames on Sat urday by Nebraska has put the Corn- huskers on edge for the crucial contest against the Badgers next Saturday at Milwaukee. Iowa university was only able to best the Ames Farmers, a week earlier, by a score of 12 to 0, and Ne braska exceeded the score of Coach Knipe's proteges by a touchdown,, win ning by 17 to 0. A muddy field, in spots half to the ankles, made fast playing impossible, and kept down the score. With a dry field Coach Booth of Ne braska asserts his pupils can score over half a dozen touchdowns on Ames. Racing at Latonia. Cincinnati, Oct. 30. The star event of the racing at Latonia was the mile handicap. The race resulted m a vic tory for John McCarthy, at odds of ted to one. Henry Bert, the favorite, was third. Jockeys Miller and Jackson fought each other with their whips down the back stretch in this race and the judges are investigating the cause of the trouble. Jockey Cash was thrown Into the fence on Lady Ezell while at the post in the opening event and the horse was scratched. The boy was not hurt. Weather fine; track fast. X. C. to Get Big Shoot.
