II: None better made. STAGG TALKSTO MINNESOTA TEA SAYS HE DID NOT SEE VERY MUCH i Intimates, Tho, that Re Did dome Reading "Between the Lines." Journal Speoial 8onie. 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 hence. "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 line. "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 precision. "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 power. "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 game. 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 It's pleasing to know that the West no longer has to go Eat* for its gloves. MoKibbin Gloves are the kinds Western people have "on hand,* because, in addition to being Western made, they equal and excel the sam priced, gloves ot, ther braadsbothia style and quality, afper pan 1.50 $ iVeirtfa/ue is a revelation. "Wearingis proving!1 All dealers. Will you have the best? Some whiskies are good Others are better They come and goBut: We made good whiskey way back in 1857. Some say it was the best. We've made it just the same aver since. It's bottled In bead guaranteed by Uncle Sam. yu like the best thingsorder SM&' 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 alone. "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 times. "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." PRINCETON'S SPEED 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 Yale. 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. Leals Down Silents. New Prague, Minn., Nov. 6.The Seal of Min nesota football team of this town lined up against the fast Silentorlum team of. the twin cities yesterday afternoon and succeeded In de- .e _. featlng them by a score of 10 to 0. The game a ST%?2S& &*& W.'KS in three years, and all of the fastest teams in the northwest have been taken on.. On next Sat urday the Adams Athletic association teem of Minneapolis will be played here. This game is expected to be the best of the season, as the Adams aggregation Is the best In MInneap oils. Distilled by A. GVCKENBEMXa. e\ BROS. Pittsburg* ft K^^^^^^^s^ss^i^^^ STAGG TELLS WHAT HI ._ THINKS OP THE mw^wm^m MINNESOTA TEAM. LIBBY, QUARTERBACK. 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 Florida. INDEPENDENT FOOTBALL The Zebras met the fast Tiger team on tne Parade grounds yesterday afternoon and held them to a tie, neither team scoring.

In the first half the Summits had the best of the ground gaining and twice were within their opponent's 5-yard line. The .pver etts took a brace in the last half and made a touchdown. Qulnn and Murphy were the stars for the winners, while Lobdell was the sensa tional man for the Summits. The Ascension's yesterday defeated the Lake Harriet Juniors by a score of 31 to 0.

DEATH I N MICHIGAN. Houghton, Mich., Nov. 5.The first death in Michigan this season resulting from playing football occurred last night when Leo C. Brown of Hancock died from Injuries sustained in a game. Young Brown was halfback on the Houghton hlghschool team and was kicked Just above the heart and on the head, during a game with the Calumet hlghschool and never regained consciousness. He was 18 years old. Speoial to The Journal. 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 ories of the disaster have been obliterated by the splendid showing made by Coach Foster's proteges in their clash of last Saturday with the gophers on Northrop field, and when Foster and his squad returned home from Minneapolis 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. The three opening games were victories, and then came the reverse in. the game with Ames. But Foster meanwhile had shown himself a sealous worker and close student of the new game, and When two veteran players, Taylor and Weller, were added to bis. varsity squad It was hot' long until his pupils were displaying rapid progress. The chief weakness was" at quarter back, and the recent improvement made In that department of the Nebraska eleven, as exem plified by tbe sensational playing of Cooke in the Minnesota game, has been almost a revela tion to the moat wrtttai^ Welu^ki^r^tisv "Jiii.u*,ui.,i IIHUJII ii IJIJUI 11,1,1 Jay in Hearts of Nebraskans Ml i TRIO OF CARLISLE PERFORMERS vt'VV "AV* '*A* HENDRICKS, RIGHT HALFBACK.

Los Angeles, Nov. 5.The concluding cham pionship game of the Pacific Coast Baseball league attracted a big Sunday crowd yesterday, the drawing card being Jim Jeffries, who came down from his alfalfa ranch to act in con junction with Frank Chance,, manager ot the Chi cago National league champions, as umpire. The came was between the Seattle and Los Angeles teams, and the former won by a score of 4 to 2, chiefly thru the inability ot the home team to hit the ball when hits were most needed. Chance gave decisions on balls and strikes while Jeff gave decisions on bases. The big fighter's decisions gave general satis faction to players and spectators except in the second Inning, when he called Dillon, the Los Angeles captain, out at first.

FOOTBALL FIGHT ENDS IN DEATH Davenport, Iowa, Nov. 5.Ed Littig, a gradu ate of Harvard and brother of Professor Littig of Iowa state university, died yesterday from the effect of Injuries received after Saturday's football game between Davenport and Rook Island high schools. The Intense rivalry be tween the two teams resulted in several fights during the game, and after the contest Littig was attacked by several Rock Islanders and during the struggle was thrown under a passing vehicle and fatally Injured. Two arrests were made. "PREXY" HUNG IN EFFIGY AT EARLHAM Journal Special Service. Richmond, Ind., Nov. 5.Angered by threats to suspend three members of the football squad for deficiency In studies, Earlham students last night hung President Kelly lb effigy. Early this morning the tackling dummy used by the team in practicing was found hanging in front of the college dormitory. The word "Prexy" was painted over It in large letters. The unsightly image dangling high In the air from a rope drawn lightly about its neck was soon cut down and an effort began to ferret out the guilty students. NORTHWEST FOOTBALL Madison Wins. Madison, Minn., Nov. 5.The local high-school football team defeated the Canby eleven here Saturday by a score of 21 to 0. The first half was all Madison and three touchdowns were made, but in the last the visitors took a brace and succeeded in holding them t6 one score. Chippewa Battle. Ban Claire, Wis. Nov. 5.^-The football game between the local arid Chippewa Falls high-school teams at the latter place Saturday, resulted in a free-for-all fight, In which everyone banged and was banged, some being seriously injured. The trouble began shortly after the kickoff, when the ball rolled behind Chippewa'e goal. An Bau Claire man fell on the ball, but was kicked In the bead, and this brought every man on both teams together. The game was not finished. Benson "by One Point. Benson, Minn., Nov. 5.The Benson team de feated Willmar here Saturday afternoon in a fine game, the final score being 5 to 4. The visitors made a field goal early In the game, and this was followed by the locals making a touchdown. To hold the mighty gophers more than level in the first half, twice endangering their goal, was an achievement unexpected in the ranks of coinhusker supporters and salves the wounds of defeat, which did not come until the final mo ments of the struggle. It was frankly admitted at Nebraska that Minnesota possessed the more formidable eleven, and there la solace In the realisation that-the cornhuskers were overcome by an aggregation ranking with the strongest In the college world, Coach Foster, in discussing the contest, said: "Nebraska, to make It plain, was up against a stronger, heavier and more experienced eleven. Naturally: I am grateful to kno wthat we made so good a showing. Tbe Ames defeat was a splendid thing- for tbe Nebraska team. After that the boys took a brace and began playing real football. I guess that the Minnesota root ers will not deny that we played that kind of a game Saturday. i,I think the luck was against Us, however," In the first half, otherwise we .should have scored. It was a clean contest and free 'from muckerlsm or. roughness. 1 wish to give the Minnesota' players credit for fair sports manship. Next year I hope we will have an other, chance to even up for Saturday's defeat, for I believe we would stand a good chance to beat them." ir The Nebraska placers returned home In fine physical condition considering the fierceness of Saturday's struggle.

BADGERS ESCAPED INJURIES SATURDAY Journal Special Service, Madison, Wis., Nov. 5.All the Wisconsin men came out of the game with Iowa Saturday in nearly as good shape as they went into it. Rogers was not expected to' last thru, but he stuck it out with an Injured leg. Howard was able to get In with his bad shoulder for a time, while Messmer, troubled with his hip, was one of the stars of the game. Altho It was really a gruelling contest, Dr. Elsom, the medi cal examiner, said that he was called upon for less work by the men after the game than he had been before this season. Hutchins has ordered secret practice for part of the time this week. He will give the men an hour and a half secret work each day, and will then throw the gates open to the rooters, He asked for the students to turn out en masse during the week to cheer on the Wisconsin men. The victory was a great stimulus to spirit here. Dr. McCarthy, who refereed the Minnesota Nebraska game, returned today and said that it was a great game. He does not, however, have anything to say as to the outcome ot the gopher maroon game Saturday. YALE SORE OYER THE ..t WEST POINT GAME Journal Special Service. New Haven, Conn., Nov. 8.But few of tho Yale football squad got back to New Haven after the West Point game until late Sunday night, and all. felt a trifle sore in mind and some more In body at the West Point result, ft Is felt that Yale .went Harvard a little better in the West Point series. Yale did not have Its best out, while Harvard did and the cadets had a better lineup against the blue then 'against the crimson. The work of Jones caused comment here. His slump was a disappointment. Championship Game. Fargo, N. D.. Nov. 5Probably next Saturday or the week following the championship of the high schools of the state will be decided and the teams of Fargo and Grand Forks will be the contestants.

Minnesota settles down to business this af ternoon in the last stage of the polishing up for Chicago Saturday. All over the west the big football game at Marshall field Is the sole topic of conversation among rooters. The compara tive "dope" on the teams is without any founda tion. Neither team has met an eleven which hag played the other, and both coaches have been playing fox. Each team has a chance to win. Nebraska unquestionably showed an unexpect ed strength of attack and a defense that WHS embarrassingly adequate to Minnesota, whose at tack was limited to straight footballfor a pur pose. Scoring on straight football under the new rules Is a tremendous task, and takes a power that can hardly be estimated. Minneso ta's touchdown In the beginning of the second half, when the ball was taken from Nebraska's 40-yard line, straight up the field and over was a wonderful performance, when It is consid ered. It went up on straight football with no gain less than three yards approximately, nor greater than eight. Seeing this after a half devoid of anything save a spectacular attack by Nebras ka and a mediocre altho stubborn defense by Minnesota, it is small wonder that Professor Stagg Is quoted as saying that be thinks Minne sota has a powerful team. Compariwns of the maroons and the gophers are general, but without any true line. Some profess to believe that the Minnesota line Is stronger than that of the maroons, but give no reason for eo thinking. Stagg has a heavy GHARLEY BAIRD WAS VICTIM OF A TOUGH Journal Special Service. Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. 5.For the first time in his life's history, Charles Baird, manager of the Michigan Athletic association, who has made atbletic3 a great financial success here, has been done, touched, made into an "B. Z. Mark." Baird met his fate when attempting to leave here Saturday for Philadelphia to make final arrangements for the Pennsylvania-Michigan game. As he boarded the train two men jostled him. One poked him hard In the stomach. Breathless and Indignant at what he believed to be the ill manners of some travelers, he struggled into the car to find his purse contain ing $100, his $25 interchangeable mileage ticket, bought only a minute before, and berth ticket gone. He was frantic, but he could only climb off the car, phone vainly to the police of surround ing cities to watch for two dips and go home for more money. He got away safely toward Phila delphia last night. HARYARD GETTING SCARED OYER INDIANS Journal Special Service. Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 5.All football inter est at Harvard Is turned toward the Indian game next Saturday, as It is felt by Cambridge under graduates that unless the crimson team takes' a decided brace it will be defeated by the wily redskin eleven. Harvard's showing against Brown yesterday was a distinct disappointment to all, and It was especially discouraging in the light of the Indian- 'game, because Harvard showed herself unable to stop just the sort of an offense that the Indians are noted for, fast open trick plays'. The only consolation from the Brown game Is that Harvard had a sub backfleld in that game. If the injuries to Captain Foster and Appollonio, fullback, mend as they are ex pected to, Foster will play left half against the Indians, Wendell right half and Appollonio fulback.

Taylor bad an edge of forty pounds on Welst. Strength of a tootoall line does not lie altogeth er in weight. 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 steady game. 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 this Impression. 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.
