In view of the severe adverse com
men t occasioned by the horseplay
seen on the field in the Beloit game,
it was expected that the gophers would
be sent in with instructions to cut
loose and play the game. If any such
instructions were given, however, they
were blandly ignored by the majority
of the gopher players. There were ex
ceptions. Current played a hard game,
scoring a large percentage of the
touchdowns, and bucking the line ef
fectively at all times, besides doing
Rome vicious tackling behind the line.
Bergen, who replaced Davies at left
half early in the game, also worked
hard, and proved the surest ground
gainer on the team with the exception
of Current. The stocky halfback set
tled all doubts in regard to his fitness
for the varsity, and his fierce plunges
off tackle were a feature of the game.
Irsfleld played a conscientious game,
and Davies advanced the ball well as
long as he was in the line-up. The
forwards, however, played in a listless
manner, and the interference given the
backs was very poor. This was espe
cially the case in plays directed at
Lawrence's rijyht side of the line. Al
ter, the nervy little right end, almost
invariably got thru and nailed Irsfleld
before he could pass the line. More
than once the forwards allowed Law
rence's men to sift thru and tackle be
hind Minnesota's line.
Fumbling and Offside Play.
In the first half Minnesota found it
hard work to push the ball over. In
spite of the languid character of the
attack, Minnesota's superior weight
and the poor tackling of her opponents,
rendered ground gaining easy, but
penalties or fumbles nearly always set
the gophers back when they were close
to a touchdown. Fumbling can be
condoned in the first month of the sea
son, but there is little excuse for it at
, this date. The same can be said of
offside play and holding. Minnesota
was penalized repeatedly Saturday, in
apite of the object lesson furnished by
the Michigan game. Once the gophers
had the ball one yard from Lawrence's
goal line when a ten-yard penalty
spoiled the chance to score.
Fe w Long Runs.
The game was without special feat
ures. Minnesota failed to rat
the ends for long runs, and most of from here, the general complaint be
ing that if Wisconsin university could
not live up to its agreement with
Milwaukee people in regard to a big
game, the latter could at least decline
to attend such contests at Madison.
the gains were made on center plunged
\ by Current or short tackle bucks by

run of forty yards, and Irsfleld and Da -

Yost Says Minnesota Is Strongest
Team He Has Seen West of
gan expects to win the Wisconsin and
Chicago games. The battle with Min
nesota has given the team confidence,
which was wholly lacking before. Tost
says of the gopher contest: "I am
prouder of holding Minnesota to a tie
than of any coaching I ever did on a
western gridiron. Minnesota played
the best game , of football I have
seen west of the Alleghanies. I have
a letter from a Michigan alumnus in
Minneapolis which states: 'You had
pitted against you every ex-Yale foot
ball player of the northwest, who, for
weeks before the game, traveled to
every point of the compass to learn
something about football that would
help to defeat Michigan.' "
Yost freely admits that this work
produced the best team he has ever
opposed, and that two weeks before
the game Minnesota could have beat
en his team over 20 to 0.
"In defense Minnesota was stronger
than I had expected," Yost said. "It
was a 50 per cent stronger team than
Minnesota had last year."

The popular figures of 46 to 0 were
hung up at the close of Saturday's
game on Northrop field between the
Minnesota football team and the little

Minnesota has made this same score
this season. Ames and Beloit were
the other teams which had the com -
bination chalked up against them.
Badger Coach Woul d Reduc e Points
Scored on a Field Goal.
Madison, Wis., Nov. 9.The rule
that allows one member of a football
team to triumph over a superior team
by kicking goals from the field ought
to be modified," said Coach Arthur
Curtis of the Wisconsin team. "Altho
Wisconsin is not perhaps in a position
gracefully to advocate the change of
the rule under which Walter Eckersall
defeated Wisconsin with his three suc
cessful drop kicks, that game showed
plainly how unjust the drop kicking
feature of the present game is.
"A drop kick from the field ought
not to count for as much as a touch
down, probably not more than two or
three points. In view of the fact that
Wisconsin was the one most injured by
this inequitable rule this season I do
not think a movement for a change of
the rule will be started here, but the
sentiment is quite uniform in the east
for rules'that will develop open team
play and not give overwhelming ad
vantage to the 'one-man' team that
possesses a good kicker. I feel as
sured that the change will come."
In the second half Minnesota played
with a little more dash and Lawrence
weakened rapidly, allowing the gophers
to score eix more touchdowns. On the
whole, however, the play during the
entire game was a disappointment. Sig
Harris did not play up to his form in
the Michigan game, except in his punt
ing. His kicks were excellent in both
height and distance, averaging a good
forty-five yards over the line. Har
ris does not seem, however, to put as
much snap into the team's play as
does O'Brien, and he does not get into
the Interference as well, while in
ground gaining there is no comparison
between the two.
State University Beat s South Dakot a
Tea m by a Score of 6 to 0.
Grand Forks, N. D., Nov. 9.The
game Saturday for the championship
of North and South Dakota was played
by the universities representing these
two states. But one score was made,
in the first half, by the University of
North Dakota, and was the result of
line bunting and a goal by Conny. The
South Dakota team claimed they got
the worst of it in the decisions rendered
and it is certain that they got none the
bpst of it. The battle, however, was a
hard fought one and the teams were
evenly matched, luck being the princi
pal factor in the winning team.
Northwestern Faculty May Boycott
O'Flahcrty's Restaurant.
Chicago, Nov. 9.The students of
Northwestern university have been
betting on the results of the intercol

ty of the university have learned that
most of the bets are made at O'Flar
herty's restaurant on Davis street, Ev
anston, extensively patronized by stu
Dean Holgate says no action has
been taken for no positive proof has
been submitted. Professor Walter
Dill Scott asserts, however, that he
has positive information that such
betting has been going on. He says
that previous to the Chicago-North
western game more than $400 in bets
was posted at O'Flaherty's restaurant.
Professor Scott has proposed that the
faculty take action to prevent stu
dents boarding at this restaurant un
der penalty of expulsion.

Wisconsin Putting Finishing Touches

New York Bun Special Service.
Madison, Wis., Nov. 9.Wisconsin's
football team .will leave Madison
Thursday morning for Ann Arbor,
Mich., and'will only have three more
days of practice before the big game
with Michigan.
The coaches will have a heavv task
to remedy the glaring defects in
defensive work shown by Saturday's
practice contest. These faults Were
not confined to the substitutes who
were in the line-up, but were shown by
the regulars as well. Bain is the only
regular not expected to be in the line
up, and Wrabetz at present appears to
be the man slated for the fclace.
All the other men on the team are
in betetr condition than they have yet
been this season. Bush, who booted
the ball so well Saturday, probably
- will do the kicking against Michigan,
and he will receive special coaching in
getting his kicks away faster during
the w.ek.

Chicago Has a Very Slim Chance to
Win from Michigan Thanks*
' giving Day.
Defeat of Illinois by Indiana a
Great SurpriseSituation in *
the East.
The poor showing of Chicago
against the Haskell Indians was the
feature of Saturday's football games
In the west. The maroons expected
an easy practice game, but as it
turned out they had to extend them -
selves to the limit to win at all. The
redskins put up a surprisingly good
game, but had Chicago played in any
thing like championship form, her
score would have been doubled.
. The result of the game makes
Michigan even more pronounced a
favorite for the Thanksgiving day
game with the maroons. Stagg
started the season with a bunch of
material which looked stronger than
that of any one of the big nine, but
the showing of the team has been a
distinct disappointment all the way
thru. The victory over Illinois gave
rise to the belief that the poor work
against Northwestern was due to
over-confidence, and not to inherent
weakness. This impression was
strengthened by Chicago's defeat of
Wisconsin. Saturday's game, how -
ever, revives the opinion that Stagg
cannot hammer his eleven into shape
to cope with the wolverines.
Michigan also played a disappoint
ing game against Ohio. The Buck
eyes fairly played Yost's men to a
standstill in the second half, and but
for fumbles, would have scored a
touch-down on straight football.
Michigan had in a number of substi
tutes, however, and it must be re
membered that the team played a
poor game against Drake the week
before its magnificent exhibition on
Northrop field. There is no ground
for the supposition that Yost's ma -
chine has slipped a cog.
Wisconsin's game against Oshkosh
normal nroves nothing, the weakness
of the latter team, and the fact that
the badgers used a number of subs
preventing any accurate deductions.
It developed that in Busch, the end,
Wisconsin has a pretty fair kicker.
Illinois Weake r Than Wa s Believed.
The defeat of Illinois by Indiana
Saturday was one of the sensations of
the vear, and will tend to detract
from the interest taken in the Minne
sota-Illinois game at Champaign Sat
urday. The Illini were supposed
early in the season to have one of the
best.teams in the history of the insti
tution. Their defeat by Chicago and
later their game with Northwestern
caused a slump in Illinois stock, but it
was still thought that Woodruff's men
would have an easy time with In
diana, which was beaten early in the
season by Wabash college, and which
lost to Chicago 34 to 0, and to Michi
gan 51 to 0.
Harvard was generally expected to
defeat Pennsylvania, altho it was rec
ognized that if either team fell much
below its top form, the other would
score a victory. Lehigh was counted
on to give Cornell a hard game, tho
it was not thought she would hold the
Ithaeans to a tie.
Ohio Play s Wolverines to a Standstill
Michigan crossed Ohio's goal line in
less than two minutes after the open
ing whistle. Graver took in the kick
off on his twenty-five-yard line and
then circled Ohio's right end for a pair
of forty-yard gains, ending in a score.
Short but sure gains, with Maddock
and Longma n hammering the line,
were productive of the next score, and
it took the wolverines five minutes to
go the eighty yards which had been
made in two plays on the first score.
The next twro
Michigan enthusiasts saw their goal
line in danger twice during the first
five minutes of the last half. First
whe Jones got fumble on
tackles, and even Maddock, the hercu
lean varsity tackle, was forced to suc
cumb to the attack. In midfield the
ball changed hands several times, and
HO bewildered was the varsity that
they fell easy victims to the Buckeye
state men. Fumbling cost both sides
an opportunity to score. The call of
time ended Ohio s goalward march of
sixty yards, when it seemed certain
that Michigan was to be scored on.

Haskell Indians Score 10 Points on
Stagg's Big Men.
Chicago, Nov. 9.Chicago expected
to play a practice game of football
with the Haskell Indians on Marshall
field Saturday afternoon. As it turned
out Chicago had hard work to win,
the final score being Chicago 17, Hask
ell 11. Chicago's three touchdowns
were made on straight football. The
Indians made one touchdown and
kicked one goal from placement from
the forty-five-yard line.
The Indians started in hard and car
ried the ball into Chicago territory in
the first half, but the maroons soon got
their stride and. scored two touch
downs before the period ended. In
the second half Haskell fairly outplay
ed Chicago. The Indians* backs buck
ed the line and ran the* ends so hard
and fast the maroons were unable to
stop them.
After their place kick they played
like so man demons and kept the
maroons on the defensive most of the
time. Their touchdown came as the
result of a thirty-six-yard run by P.
Houser. This man played the most
brilliant game seen on Marshall field
this year. H e scored the place kick
as well as the touchdown, while his
punting was wonderful. Chicago play
ed good football in spots, but the re
peated fumbling of all the backs ruin
ed many chances to score.
Eckersall again played brilliantly,
saving hisnea m from defeat by tack
ling in the open field. Catlih repeated
his good work of the Wisconsin game
and the maroons were noticeably
weaker after he had been taken out.

That Indiana has improved consid
erably there can be no doubt, but Illi
nois must he much weaker than was
supposed. Unless they slump from
over-confidence, the gophers should
run up a big score on the Illini
Saturday. . '
Next Saturday's games in the west
include the Michigan-Wisconsin con
test in which the wolverines will be
a strong favorite. A victory by Wis
consin is hardly to be expected, unless
the latter team develops in a sensa
tional manner, and Michigan slumps,
which is not likely.
Except the Harvard-Pennsylvania
contest. Saturday's games in the east
aroused little interest. Even the
struggle between the crimson and
the red and blue was not very serious
ly regarded, as it has no bearing on
the championship. The crucial con
test in the east is that between Yale
and Princeton this week. In Satur
day's games, Yale showed the better
form. Princeton played a poor game
against Lafayette, and must show
great improvement to win from the
Ells. The latter team, tho weak at
center, haa a great advantage in
weight, and is the favorite with the

only on Friday that the match was
arranged to take the place of the fix
ture canceled by Beloit, and tho the
home team had not been training very
faithfully, they gave a brilliant ex
hibition, defeating the visitors by the
score of 28 to 0.
Thruout the play the doctors
showed the effects of O'Dea's coach
ing in splendid tackling and'charging,
piercing Notre Dame's defense and
making some sensational Tiins. They
failed to score, however, and toward
the end of the second half were fair
ly outclassed.

Wisconsin Scrubs Sdore 53 Points on
Oshkosh Normal.
Madison, Wis., Nov. 9.Wisconsin
piled up the big score of 53 to 0
against the Oshkosh normal school
team here Saturday -afternoon. Only
six of the regular members of the
varsity played, the others being the
best of the substitutes. Owing to the
large proportion of new men in the
game the team work of the badgers
was exceedingly ragged.
The team lacked the fierce spirit of
the regulars, and at times was woe -
fully slow. Fumble s were frequent
and the punting of Captain Abbott
was much below his usual work. The
other normalites blocked two of Ab
bott's punts. Bush, the clever little
Wisconsin end, did some of the kick
ing and showed up well. His first
punt was a brilliant one of 50 yards.
The normalites "were considerably
lighter than the badgers, and, while
they played a good game, were not
able to stand the fierce line bucking of
their heavier opponents. Clark and
Scofleld, at full hack for Wisconsin,
and Vanderboom, afc/half back, did
some fierce line bucking. Brindley,
Price, and O'Brien "were the three
new men in the Wisconsin line, and
they showed up creditably^

won from De Pauw Saturday afternoon in
one of the best games played on the home
grounds this season before a big crowd by
a score of 6 to 0. De Pauw made more
fumbles than the \isitors and lost the
game as a result of them, once dropping
the ball to Lake Forest after it had been
carried to the line.

Beloit Beats Platteville Normal.
Beloit, Wis., Nov. 9.Plitteville normal
was played to a standstill by Beloit Satur
day and quit the game six minutes after
the last half started, with a score cf 33 to
0 against it. Beloit was 75 per cent bettor
than last week, on account of Mills play
ing at quarter. He showed the best gener
alship of any player this year. The lineup:
Platteville ^oimal Beloit
to defeat.
But it was an honorable defeat at
that. The red and blue fought plucki
ly against heavy odds, and it was no
surprise that the vast concourse as
sembled gave the quakers an earnest
ovation at the conclusion of the game.
For nearly two hours preceding the
game all roads led to Franklin field,
and after beginning of play a steady
stream poured into the various en
trances. It was an ideal day for wit
nessing outdoor sport. When the ref
eree blew his whistle fully 20,000 peo
ple surrounded the gridiron.
The contest was a singularly fine
and open one, well played on both
sides, and it was solely the heavier line
of the crimson that carried the day.
Harvard's first touchdown came
early in the game, and the speed with
which it was made, together with the
ease with which Pennsylvania was
pushed about the gridiron, made the
quaker supporters chilly. This was
changed to the wildest enthusiasm
when Pennsylvania got the ball on a
fumble, and by desperate efforts man
aged to score.
Harvard earned her next one by
smashing into the quaker line for good
and consistent gains, and Pennsyl
vania, almost again equaled the count
on another fumble. It was in this half
that the quakers did their best work.
In the second, tho Pennsylvania played
a plucky, stubborn defense, the already
weakened red and blue line could not
withstand the continual grueling, and
tho she gave occasional flashes of her
earlier work she was forced to suc
Both teams did considerable
fumbling, but if anything the fumbles
of the crimson were the more costly.
Two of them gave Pennsylvania her
ten points, while at least one was di
rectly responsible fdr a crimson touch
down. This tendency to fumble grew
on both sides as the gains proceeded.
It resulted on Pennsylvania's part
from overanxiety to gain, while it was
plainly evident that the crimson was
playing a safe game.

tie in which Cornell "rooters" cheered
as they never cheered before, and it
was a game with plenty of excitement.
Lehigh came to Cornell, expecting
to take advantage of the weakened
condition of the Ithaeans after the
Princeton game and win, while Cap
tain Hunt went into the contest with
a great deal of dread, for Fetzer, the
center, had a weak knee, while Rice,
Cornell's crack halfback, was in poor
In the first half, Lehigh had pos
session of the ball the greater part ofr
the time, and was within striking dis
distance of Cornell's goal line twice,
having the leather in its own pos
session once on the 8-yard line, and a
second time only 15 yards away, but
each time the Ithaeans responded to
their captain's appeal, and to the
cheers of the crowd, and held. Then,
when Cornell got possession of the
ball, late in the second half, the Itha
eans took a hand at gaining. Rice,
Snider, the two backs, fought their
way thru the tackles and plainly had
the visitors on the run. Then Brew
ster dropped back as if to kick, in
stead the quarterback circled left end,
and cleverly dodging the opponents
sped over the chalk mark, putting
the ball down directly behind the
posts. Everybody thought Cornell had
scored. In fact, there seemed to be
no doubt about it. Even the Lehigh
substitutes, who stood on the side lines,
had given up, when the umpire de
clared that Brewster had run out of
bounds, and he called the play back.
The half ended shortly after this
play. In the second half Cornell had
the ball the greater part of the time.

Ithaca, N. Y., Nov. 9.Cornell and
Lehigh fought it out for two 2 5-min-

even battle from start to finish, both
sides sometimes gaining at will and
sometimes holding their opponents

Tigers Get One Touchdown and a Field
Goal Against Lafayette.
Princeton. N. J., Nov. 9.Princeton
defeated Lafayette here Saturday
afternoon by a score of 11 to 0 in the
last game the tigers play before they
line up against Yale. The weather
conditions were perfect for the game,
with bright sunshine and just a touch
of frost in the air.
About 400 rooters came down from
Easton to cheer on their team. As the
game was not expected to be a hard
one to win, Vetterlein, quarterback,
was the only one of the reguar backs
on the Princeton team who appeared
,in the first line-up. Crawford played
right end for Henry, who has not
wholly recovered from an injury re
ceived last week. Bradley was put at
center, while Short, who has been
holding the pivotal position, moved to
left guard. This made a strong com
bination and probably \n ill hold for
the Yale game.
The tigers' defensive work was poor
in the first half and the visitors fre
quently made big holes in the line.
De Witt's punting was far below his
usual standard, but as Lafayette's
kicker was in even worse form De
Witt's poor work did not prove a
means of much gain to the visitors.
Both sides fumbled often, and Prince
ton lost the ball in this manner once
on its own 20-yard line.
Lafayette attempted a goal from the
field, but failed, and this lost the
chance to score.
In the first half, the ball changed
hands several times without either
side getting near the other's goal, but
finally, by heavy line plunges, the
orange and black got the leather well
into the enemy's territory and
De Witt was sent over for a touch
down. Vetterlein kicked the goal.
No more scoring was done in the first
The second half was a long succes
sion of fumbles on Lafayette's part and
punts on Princeton's. The only scor
ing was on a goal from field by De
Witt, who suddenly took a brace and
