Men Appear to Be in Good Con
dition and of Heavy
The Nebraska team arrived Jn Minneapolis
this morning at 8 o'clock orer -the Great Wes
tern, and are quartered at the West.
Coach Foster, Assistant Coach Stuart and
Manager Eager bad the cornliuskers in charge.
Twenty-nve players wero in the party, and as
they loitered about the big lobby this morning
their sise and condition were a source of much
comment by the rooters who dropped in to look
them over.
"We are not mafcing any boasts or predic
tions as to the score/' said Coach Foster. "Oa
the other hand, we do not concede Minnesota
a single poi.ut. We expect the hardest work
of our season right here tomorrow, and I thlnl?
our boys are in condition to give a good account
of themselves. We have nothing in the way of
injuries save of a superficial nature, and wa
will put up as strong a battle against Minne
sota as in our power. Win or lose, it is going
to be a good game."
This afternoon Foster took his team out
fat the suburbs for a good stiff signal practice
and a cross-country run to keep them from ac
quiring ennui from loitering about the comfort
able quarters.
The men in the squad do not appear to be
suffering from any stagefrlght and look to be
in good shape. Those in the party are:
Schmidt, right end 171

Last night saw another warm workout for
the gophers, with the work carried well into
the evening under the electric lights. The result
of the scrimmage is unknown and the plan of
battle against Nebraska is also another care
fully guarded secret. The gophers believe that
Nebranka can be lickedhas to be lick(-d, iu
factbut the Nebraskans are not held cheaply
and the play will be vigorous. Nebraska is re
garded as strong enough to turn a trick at any
atage of the game, and Minnesota will hardly
take any chances. The lineup for tomorrow
(unofficial) is as follows:
Minnesota. Nebraska.-*-
Snyder left end Schmidt

Coach Lew Drill's Hamline eleven will take

ternoon at Norton field, Hamline, in their first
championship game of the season. Coach Drill
has prepared his squad for this game, as it is
considered the tough battle of the year. Carle

mands a victory to make up for the poor show
ing against Pillsbury last Saturday.
As St. Thomas is out of the college league

Chicago, Nov. 2.-Stagg is thoroly aroused
over the weakness of the marcon line. When
he read the list of weights of the northern
giants yesterday his worries increased. There
is no rest for his squad from now until the
gophers get here. Yesterday afternoon electric
lights were rigged and practice after nightfall
with the white ghost ball was inaugurated. The
eleven will from now on get its double stunt
of work every evening. Stagg believes that he
can whip a line into shape which will be much
better than in the games already played, but
whether he can get a set of forwards of suffi
cient strength to hold the giant Minnesota play
ers is a question.
Minnesota has one of the heaviest teams in
the country, certainly much the heaviest in the
west, and Stagg has one of the lightest lines.
A fast heavy line against a fast light one seems
open to only one interpretation, but under the
new rules the line is not so Important as under
the old rules.
However, Stagg is working over all his avail
able material in the hope of making some shifts
to strengthen his team. Yesterday afternoon
the linemen got the bulk of the work, and they
will be letter perfect by the time the gophers
line up on Marshall field. The Minnesota line
averages close to 200 pounds, the maroons but a
little over 170.
At best Chicago has no more than an even
chance against Minnesota in the contest which,
a week from Saturday on Marshall field, will
practically settle the championship of the west.

Ann Arbor, Nov. 2.Only light signal prac
tice and running under punts were allowed the
Michigan squad yesterday afternoon by Coach
Yo^t, tho regulars and senjbs pleaded to get
each, other In the scrimmage. The varsity want
ed to rub it Into the reserves for Bcoring, last
night and the reserves wanted to try their luck
once more. But Yost thought the Vanderbilt
game too near to permit his taking any chances
on the men getting hurt. In new trick plays
practices Magoffin, Garrels and Curtis were the
central figures. The lineup yesterday probably
will be the one which Michigan will send In
against the commodores. It was: Curtis, left
end Loell, left tackle Eyke, left guard- Clem-
ent, center Graham, right guard Patrick, right
tackle Harry Hammond, right end Workmen,
quarterback Magoffin, left half Bishop, right
half Garrels, fullback.
Michigan got an idea of what Pennsylvania
thinks of its team, tho twice defeated, when
there arrived this afternoon from quakerland
$1,000 to put up at even money that the wolv
erines would lose the game on Nov. 17. The
Michlganders began forming a pool and resolved
to stick to the old wolverine precedent of put
ting the other fellow to rout in betting. .They
will offer $1,100 for the $1,000 tomorrow, birec
tor Baird said last night that he had high hopes
of getting a favorable rate from the railroads
for the rooters' excursion to the Pennsylvania
Beavers and Quicksteps Putting on the
Finishing Touches.
The Beavers will have their last practice tils
evening before their game with the St. Paul
Quicksteps at Minnehaha park Sunday after
noon. Coach Hunter Is bound to best the
St. Paul aggregation this, time to make -up
for the tie of two weeks ago, and every man
is trained to perfection.
The St. Paul team has been greatly strength
ened in the past week, according to reports,
and are prepared to give the Beavers the bat
tle of the season. The Quicksteps deny the
charge of the Ramblers that they are dirty
players, and further say that one of the Ram
bler men played a very ungentlemanly game.
The game was played on the Fort Snelllng
grounds, where both teams had an equal chance,
and the saints are hurt over the reports.
The game Sunday will be called at 3 o'clock,
and is expected to be the scrappiest affair on
the Beavers' schedule.

Coach Stagg, with Captain Eckersall, leaves
for Minneapolis today to watch the Minnesota
Nebraska game Saturday and learn a few things
first hand as to the strength of the maroons'
coming opponent. Assistant Coach Speik and
De Tray will remain here to superintend Sat
urday's secret practice.
Greater vigilance was adopted for yester
day afternoon's practice than at any this season.
Marshall field is open to too great scrutiny by
onlookers from adjacent buildings to^ suit' the
secrecy with which the marons are guarded, and
so the regulars and subs were taken to the
women's athletic field adjoining Marshall field.
There, under greater secrecy, they were run
thru the formations and instructed in the new
and Intricate plays by Coach Stagg.
The freshmen and scrubs were lined up for a
scrimmage, but the varsity men were kept at
signal and formation work until dark when
they returned to Marshall field.

Carlisle,- Pa.. Nor. 2.The Carlisle footban
eleven is probably in as good shape to finish
the football season as any team in the cpun
tfy. They are able,.in case the Indian Coafchea
should see fit to do so, to pWe on the Indian
backfleld four well-trained players who are com
petent to run a hundred yards In ten seconds,
if they wish to do so. Archie Libby at Quarter
back and Frank Mount Pleasant and Hendricks
at fullback, as well as Wilson Charles, a
possibility for fullback, could cover ground
faster than any like combination of college
youth anywhere In the country. These back
field players are at any time fnterchangable
and can be filled up with such men as Dubois,
Wlmjie, Owl and Simpson, who average in
weight enough to make a heavy backfleld. In
front of -the Indian line there are .many very
fast runners among them are Captain Exen
dine, who runs a quarter-mile in almost record
breaking time, and whose eighty-nve'-yard run
with the whole Pennsylvania team dribbling
from his heels In last 'Saturday's game, Was
a' perfect eye-opener Gardner, who is strong
on the 100 and quarter-mile dashes La Rocque,
who lead the' Pennsylvania eleven a race sim
ilar to Exehdlne's Lnbo, the Mission Indian
100-yard dash man,' and Waseuka, the mar
velous runner from North Dakota.
The Indian lineup for the last few days'has
been as follovre:' Lelt end, Gardner left tackle,
Waseuka left guard, Dillon center, Bunt
right guard, La Bocque right tackle, Lnbo
right end. Captain Exendine quarterback, A.
Libby left halfback, Frank Mount Pleasant
right halfback, Hendricks fullback. Little
Nearly everyone who has written about the
Indian-Pennsylvania game has the honest be
lief that the Indians were aided in their late
victory over the quakers largely by Penn
sylvania's inability to handle Mount Pleas
ant's remarkable punts, these observers did
not realize that Mount Pleasant with his won
derful Ingenuity places his punts low with
definite purpose in mind. Every redskin on the
Carlisle squad Is especially well equipped to
mix up a scramble for a lost pigskin, and
there Is no donbt but that many big elevens
In the country will bear testimony to this
phase of the Indians' athletic agility before
the season's close.
The week's practice for the aboriginees baa
been very inconsequential, owing to the strain
imposed on them up until and at the Penn
sylvania game, where they showed up In such
fine form.
On Monday the Indians were given little to
do, by the coaches, but on Tuesday the prac
tice warmed up a little bit under the Influ
ence of the approach of the three big games
coming on three successive weeks, with Syra
cuse at Buffalo, Harvard at Cambridge, and
Minnesota at Minneapolis. On Tuesday the
men were first limbered up and then put thru
brief signal practice, and were given ample
exercise at punting and running down under
punts. Inasmuch as the redskins bore very few
bruises as a result of the battle at Philadel
phia last Saturday, the attention of the coaches
has been given to putting the men Into .even
better physical form than they have beeni On
Wednesday there was a short scrimmage be
tween the first and second Indian elevens which
resulted in a close score slightly to the ad
vantage of the regular eleven. Thursday morn
ing practice was the only morning practice
during the week that amounted to anything.
It followed a Wednesday evening chalk talk
in the cage by Coach Hudson, who brought out
clearly the lesson taught by the amazing weak
ness of the University of Pennsylvania's.eleven.

California if Tommy Byan does not accept tha
offer of $7,000 made by McCarey of Los Angeles.
It Is not very probable that the middleweight
champion will accept that inducement, as he
bas declared that he -would accept nothing less
than $10,000. McCarey Is not likely to hang
Op this amount, as he does not consider Thomas
drawing card enough for a purse of tnat size.
