Chicago, NOT. 6.Coach Stagg and Oaptatn
Bckorsail returned from Minneapolis yesterday
after witnessing the Minnesota-Nebraska game,
with their ideas regarding the Btrength and
speed of the Minnesota football team and with a
few observations which they will impart, In se
cret, to the maroons this week during the final
preparation for the big game of the season next
Saturday on Marshall field.
"The result of the game may hare been unex
pected," said Stagg, "but to those who saw It
there was little surprise at the score of 18 to
0 la faror of Minnesota. Nebraska's strength
was a surprise. Because of Its defeat by Amea
and Minnesota's easy victory over that team
Nebraska had been held rather lightly. But it
bowed great Improvement and gave Minnesota
a hard tussle. Incidentally, Chicago may expect
a hard fight when it meets Nebraska three weeks
"Nebraska's strength lay In Its offense, which
was built up around new and trick plays. The
execution of these was perfect, and the criss
cross, double pass and forward pass were worked
for good gains until the supply was exhausted
and Minnesota had become familiar with the
Nebraska formations. The gophers won by bat
tering down and tiring out the Nebraska men,
which is partly accountable for the fact that
they did not score until the second half.
"The Minnesota line showed strength. It Is
powerful and Is made up of heavy, active men.
tt Is to be expected that some of the same
tactics will be used against as, and, at least I
am going to spend the week bolstering up my
"Minnesota has a heavy team, and what Im
pressed me more, a fast and shifty bunch. No
new plays were tried, but the shiftiness of the
men and their quickness in getting into forma
tions and changing positions showed their speed.
Nebraska was utterly powerless before Minne
sota's stone wall defense and was able to gain
only on Its triex plays and Intricate forma
tions, which were' executed with the greatest
"In punting, Minnesota showed no stronger
than I expected, Larkln proving himself to be
a good man. Robertson was not in the game,
but the backs who played showed great driving
"Dr. Williams, after the game, expressed his
dissatisfaction with the showing of his team
and told me that it would be an entirely differ
ent jrame that I would see next Saturday. Re
garding the Chicago-Minnesota game, my opinion
Is not much altered. We have a chance, of
coursewe always have that In every game.
But there Is nothing to make Chicago confident.
Our presence didn't tend to bring forth Min
nesota's best game, and its offense will consist
of something besides straight football. And
yon may be rare that there will be some busy
sessions around Marshall field this week."
The Big Game.
The Chicago-Minnesota game on Marshall field
next week will be the big game of the sea
eon In the west, deciding the championship of
the west. In so far as that honor can be set
tled this fall. The standing of Michigan and
Wisconsin, In relation of Chicago and Minnesota,
will have to be determined largely thru their
games with Illinois and the Chicago-Illinois
contest. But neither of these teams, in their
games thus far, have come up to their standard
of former years, and the Minnesota-Chicago
game being the only real big western game on
the season's schedule, Is the one that will do
much to untangle the championship knot.
Altho Chicago's chances have taken on a
brighter hue since Nebraska held the mighty
northerners to one touchdown and two place
kicks, there still is little that can be said to
give one team an edge on the other. Minne
ota is heavy and fast with a powerful line,
a strong backfleld and one end. Bob Marshall
who has few equals In the west. The gophers
are shifty and may be expected to make good
use of the new plays which Dr. Williams has
been teaching them expressly for the Chicago
The maroon is represented by one of the light
est teams it has ever had. but it is fast. Its
line needs strengthening, but it has a backfleld
that is lightning fast and the equal of any
that has played In this neck of the woods' for
some years. Saturday's games all held a sur
prise of one sort or another, but the most re
markable coincidence in them is the fact that
nearly every one of the big games, east and
west, victory was not won until well toward
the close of the second half, and then by mar
gins of only one or two touchdown's or field
goals. Teams played each other to a standstill

la the first half, and In only one biff game was
an overwhelming score piled up.
The surprise in the west was Michigan's all
but lost victory over Vaaderbllt. Not since
Yost went to Michigan has such a game been
played In Ann Arbor. It was due only to Gar
rets' 70-yard run In the last minute of play
that the southern champions did not succeed
In holding the erstwhile champions of the west
to a tie.
The complete reversal of form by the Wis
consin eleven, and Its consequent victory over
Iowa after the hawkeyea looked the winners,
was the surprise package that, came from Madi
son, while from Lafayette came another In the
shape of the Chicago-Michigan 2 to 0 game,
when Notre Dame won from the bollermakers
by a safety.
Outside of the struggle between the giants
on Marshall field, there are only two games of
importance in the west next Saturday. Wis
consin and Illinois will clash at Urbana In
what should be a close and hard fight. At
Indianapolis, Indiana and Notre Dame will set
tle the championship of Indiana.
Chicago, Nov. 5.The Tribune says: "One of
three things was demonstrated by Saturday's
football game at Minneapolis. Minnesota was
playing a desperate game of 'possum for the
purpose of encouraging the maroon leaders who
were watching, or Nebraska has developed won
derfully in defense In the last three weeks, or
the gophers have small chance of beating the
maroons on Marshall field next Saturday.
"Which one of these three things was shown
by the game on Northrop field last Saturday
will not be known for a fact until the end of
the week to a certainty. It Is reasonable to
speculate, however, that if the gophers played
to their limit in the use of straight football
alone and were able to score only one touchdown
with what probably is the strongest rush line
in the west against Nebraska, It is impossible
for a powerful eleven to score many points un
der the new rules against a team which comes
anywhere near being In Its class by the use of
close formations or line and tackle-smashffig
"There is the other possibility that' Coach
Foster had built up the Nebraska defense close
to Minnesota's standard in a short time, altho
It would be difficult to justify that fact with
the fact that Minnesota a week previously de
feated Ames which previously had won easily
from the cornhuskers.
"The chief cause for worriment in the maroou
camp has been the position that the giant gopher
line, which is said to average over 200 pounds
to the man, from tackle to tackle, and close to
that figure from end to end, would be able to
crush and crumble Chicago's lighter forwards
with sufficient ease to make it possible to ad
vance the ball ten yards In three smashes as
easily as formerly could be done under the five
yard rule, or that the constant smashing of
such superior weight would wear out Stagg's
line in a short time. The fact that Nebraska had
a line strong enough to prevent the gophers
scoring until near the middle of the second
half indicates it is possible for Stagg to erect
a defense capable of doing the same thing, so
far as the bruising style of play is concerned,
unless the gophers were not hammering at the
Nebraska line with their full strength at all
"It Is certain of course that Coach Williams
did not disclose any novelties in the way of
attack which he may be planning to spring on
Chicago. It goea without saying that he has
much more up his sleeve than was disclosed on
Saturday. But the maroons appear to be a match'
for almost any western eleven In open field
work, and with undoubtedly greater speed it
will be difficult to work tricks on them with
great frequency for disastrous gains.
"The development of Marshall as a field-goal
kicker gives the gophers an additional weapon,
but in that department he will have to travel
fast to keep pace with EckersalPs toe, for
there is no question that the maroon captain
can outpunt the Minnesota hooters under equal
conditions. Minnesota is fast, despite the
weight of its men, probably the fastest team of
giants ever brought out, and there 1B a prob
ability that Chicago's speed will be slowed up
considerably by the exertion of stopping that
weight and after being tackled repeatedly with
the ball by such giants.
"There will be small chance for Chicago to
gain any distance except by open field work
Judging from the Nebraska's lack of success in
driving back the big gopher line, so that ttfl
game promises to be an open one next Satur
day, full of kicking and dashing plays."
THE EASTERN FEATURE
Journal Special Service.
New York, Nov. 5The remarkable speed
shown by the Princeton football team in their
game with Dartmouth was the feature ot
Saturday's gridiron contests. Yale had her usual
hard time with West Point (10 to 6), being bad
ly outplayed the first half and barely rallying in
time to win out.
Harvard met the Brown team which Pennsyl
vanla defeated on a wet and slippery field, and
found with a dry field that they were a very
different proposition. Their open football played
havoc with the big crimson team, who finally
won out. The game showed a remarkable simi
larity to the West Point-Yale game, in that
each side scored a touchdown, and the winning
side made a goal from placement after a fair
catch, the opportunity for which was made by
superior punting, which drove the losing team
back to their goal line.
Harvard seems to have played her usual game
against a strong opponent, a game similar to the
one played a week ago against the army, in
Which she never at any time showed the full
None better knOWfe strength of which the crimson is capable, but
came forward with Just enough of championship
quality to win out in the end.
It is Coach Reid's well-known policy to hold
back for the Yale game, to suffer reverses If
necessary, should an opponent prove a bit strong
er than anticipated, and to vary not a whit
the gradual slow and sure preparation that shall
put his eleven on Its mettle the day It plays
It is a wise policy and It explains why crim
son elevens along in midseason give the dis
heartening appearance ot playing far below their
possibilities. The unlooked-for exhibition put up
by Harvard last year in holding Shevlin's team
to 6 to 0 is an Instance of it.
Princeton furnishes a contrast. The tigers
play football from start to finish. They are as
fierce and wideawake a bunch when they first
get together in September as they are in the
last minute of the Yale game in November.
Every man is usually doing his best all the time.
Consequently Princeton has in the past some
times reached the top notch of form too soon
and as a result has been overconfident.

STAGG TELLS WHAT HI
._ THINKS OP THE mw^wm^m
GETTING READY FOR
FLORIDA COAST RAGES
The publication of the program of events for
the fifth annual Ormond-Daytona Beach (Fla.)
automobile meet started the critics going. It
is well known that no race-meet promoters ever
succeeded in satisfying everybody. If the sug
gestions of every driver were embodied In a
race program it would embrace enough events
to last thru the entire Florida season.
The Florida' East Coast Automobile associa
tion, therefore, decided, after consultation with
competent advisers, to give a pragrom that would
meet the wishes of the greatest number and
at the same time provide a meet that would
give the best results from a racing and record
point of view.
Speaking of the advance criticism and sug
gestions before the program made its appear
ance, the representative of the Florida Kast
Coast association at his office, Broadway and
Eighty-fifth street. New York, said: "Among
the critics and advisers In regard to the fifth
annual program were at least two foreigners
that have never appeared in Florida, and possi
bly never will, for the simple reaBon that the
game In Florida is a little swifter than the
game is In any other part of the world. Hun
dred-mile records on three tires and a mile In
28 1-5 seconds and two miles in 68 4-5 seconds
are not made on the other side, and many of
the foreign drivers know that fact and there
fore give Florida a wide berth.
"Our association will always be glad to listen
to competent critics who take part in the an
nual races in Florida, but advice from non
competitors is seldom sought and little heeded.
There has been some criticism in regard to so
called freak cars. It has become the general
opinion of the public that all racing cars can
be labeled freak cars because they are not fit to
drive as touring cars on the public road, so that
every car engaged in great road races and are
purely of racing type must necessarily be freak
cars. It 1B those freak cars, however, that
make the world's records. It was the car from
London, driven by the English boy, Walter
Cllfford-Earp, that made the world's record for
the hundred miles. It was an accepted type
of racing car that made the two miles inside ot
a minute, driven by Demogoet, the Frenchman,
the car being a French production. It was a
steam car built in America that made the mile
in 28 1-5 and was driven by an American. It
is, therefore, up to the ruling automobile-racing
bodies to determine what is and what is not a
freak racing car, as the present rules of Europe
and America do not cover the point. All that
is demanded is that the cars come within the
heavyweight classification of 2,201 pounds. In
this connection it is well to remember that
A. I Outness ot Dublin has recently been
making at least European records with the
French car used by Demogoet last winter in

Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 5.Football stock at the
University of Nebraska is much nearer par this
week than at any previous period of the sea
son. The cornhuskers suffered from the sting
ot an unexpected defeat, early In the season at
the hands of Ames, bat the unpleasant mem

the splendid showing made by Coach Foster's
proteges in their clash of last Saturday with
the gophers on Northrop field, and when Foster

they were given an ovation fully as enthusiastic
as if they, had been the victors.
Fears expressed at the Inception of practice
that the cornhuskers were due to encounter a
disastrous season seemed justified by the facts.
The coach was new to Nebraska and to western
football, and the material available for the
moulding of a creditable team was below the
usual standard, both' as to beef and experience.

Chicago's backfleld Is light, but admittedly
faet. The work will be cut ont for the gopher
ends. Marshall played a splendid game Satur
day and Cooke's run, which came around his end,
was probably more on account of Johnson's pe
culiar style of Interference rather than from a
failure of Robert to spot the play. When Mar
shall misses solving a play on bis end there is
not an end in America who will get it. Ittner,
after he wore off his newness, played a good
If Minnesota's line plays op full of ginger
as they should. Chicago's backfleld will probably
be nnatle to do a gre%t deal on anything save
attempts on the end. It is going to be a battle
royal, greater even than the Michigan-Chicago
game of a year ago, and anything save specula
tion npon the outcome is impossible. No one Is
attempting it. Each team holds the other In
wholesome respect, and it will be desperate
battle from start to finish.
Tickets for the game are still on sale at the
usual places, and will remain on sale In Minne
apolis until Friday noon. The tickets sent to
Minneapolis are at Voegeli's and Northwestern
School Supply company stores. The Minnesota
seats are on the west side of the Marshall field,
and some of the. best seats .arc still on sale.
Tbey are going fast, howeter. The Carlisle
Minnesota tickets will be nlaced on sale
Wednesday morning at the nsual places.
A New Punter.
Minnesota has discovered a new punter. It is
Vita. For two years Vita has kept his ability
as a booter well hidden and not until the latter
part of last week was it discovered that he was
a punter who can give any of the gophers a hard
rub for distance and accuracy. He will probably
do a part of the hooting in tbe Chicago game.
The gophers came thru without an Injury of
importance and work started in earnest this af
ternoon. Upon this week's work depends the
chance for victory over Chicago. The players
realize that work, and hard work, is necessary
and are going into the task in splendid spirit.
ILLINI NOT SO SURE
ABOUT THE BADGERS
Journal Special Service.
Urbana, 111., Nov. 6.Wisconsin's decisive de
feat of Iowa sent cold shivers into the Illinois
camp, where the badgers are held in a lot mora
respect since they trimmed the hawkeyes. For
some reason or other the lilini had obtained an
idea that they were a lot better than their
opponents of next Saturday, and despite tbe
warnings of the coaches, it was hard to remove
Assistant Coach Jimmy Cook was an observer
at Madison yesterday, and on his return today
he gave considerable light on the situation, for
little was known about the cardinals except
that they defeated Iowa. Cook's report was
followed by a conference of the coaches at
which plans to confound the invaders from Mad
ison were discussed.
It it probable that Coach Lindgren will order
the gates closed and hold secret practice this
week while plays are tried out for Saturday's
game. Much dependence is placed on big Moyn
ihan for Saturday, as the veteran played end
grandly Saturday and seems to have rapidly
adapted himself to the position. He will greatly
brace the team. Now If Captain Carrlthers
should be able to play, the Illlnl would ferl
that the badgers could never circle the local
ends. But Carrlthers' case Is still dubious,
and his services cannot be banked on. Mackey
would be a prominent contender for end if
Carrlthers. is out, but the track-team man has a
bad shoulder that handicaps him greatly. Stew
art has Shown promise and may be the pick.
Both he and Moynlhan can be used to advan
tage on offense.
FOR QUAKERS NOW

Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. 5.Michigan will start
stiff practice today with a victory at Pennsylva

who took part in the fierce, struggle with McGu

Magoffin, are ready for the course which Yost
will hand out. Magoffin's shoulder is giving
him considerable pain, tho it ls not seriously
injured. Trainer Fltspatrick says. Patrick's
knee is badly hurt and he may not get around
again this season. His place at right tackle will
probably be taken by Newton, a lighter and less
