Hps cii.r That the Coyote-Normal game, which was to have been played at Riverside nark this coming Friday should be played on Saturday instead, was de cided after a long discussion between the athletic directors of the two schools yesterday afternoon at the local high school. Coach Schaeffer of the Tempe norm: held off for two hours before he gave in as to when the game between his team and the Coyotes should be played and how much he should be allowed out of the gate receipts to pay the ex penses of bringing his boys from across the river. Finally, after a promise a return game and a guarantee for an amount that would pay the expense of three teams here, he gave in and said he would play on the condition that the game be held on Saturday in stead of the day before. A rivalrv between the two schools has grown during many years friendly battle and as the normal hi noUhad a football team since l'.tOG, they are eager to meet the Coyotes on the gridiron for a test of strength and to try to win further honor for their school Stay The Coyotes are not slumbering peacefully while the Pedagogues are rousing their enthusiasm and prepar ing a team to come over and snatch a football game from under their noses. No indeed. The Coyote clan is full of vim and is waiting anxiously utitil their team meets the would be teach ers on Saturday. Coach Geary is working his boys hard on all forms of defense and offense and will not be unprepared to meet the most complex onslaught or break through the solid est line with skill. The Pedagogues journeyed to Tucson last Saturday where they met a school of their own class in years but far more experienced and were defeated by a comparatively small score. This will be readily understood when it is known that the. Tempe boys have never played football on a coached team be fore as it was their grandfathers that played on the T. N. S. eight years ago. Schaeffer is known to be one of the best in Arizona and with the material ho has it is expected that he has turned out a team that will show the Coyotes something.

In four, De Paris, Saint Hubert and Argonne, where German attacks were repulsed, we gained ground." ited yesterday, was given out to night: "On the front the Thirteenth re serve army corps of the allies troops today directed a vigorous defensive. They came out at the same time from Dixmude, Knocke and Moors- schosts. Between Bixsechects and Zennebeke the situation is unchang ed. The last two villages were oc cupied by the allies' troops. The Germans continue to retreat. The Russians occupy Leucheza, Lodzl Opioina and Czrath. In Galicia, Rus sian success is reported near Les ter and Madverona. A number of prisoners were taken, as well as war material. The Russians advanced west of Vladizlavoff." German Army Stops LONDON, Nov. 3. That the German urmy has abandoned the attempt to buck its way along the Belgian coast to Calais is agreed upon in all official reports tonight. The combination of an inundated country, a remnant of the Belgian army under King Albert, and the activity of the British warships, has seemingly all contributed toward ending the. costly struggle. A Berlin official statement ittributed the failure of the Germans entirely to the flooded state of the country, where the water in places is over a man's head. But it declares the ' army of Kmperor William withdrew In good-order, without losses. After near ly three weeks desperate fighting the brunt of the attack has now shifted to the. Ypres region, where the English army field marshal Sir John Fren reinforced with Indians, and territori als, apparently must meet another on- laught. To this scene of a contem plated battle, according to reports, Kmperor William has gone to give en couragement to his men by his presence. A state of war exists between Turkey on one side and Russia, Great Britain and Servia on the other, vet the Otto man government appears as a house divided against itself, one section seemingly being desirous of war while the conservatives are trying to smooth over the situation arising from, attacks upon the Russian ports and ships bv the Turkish war vessels directed by German officers. Russia has apparently welcomed the war and will not give the Turks a chance to draw back, while the r.ritish cruiser Minerva smashed the Turkisli base of operations against Kgypt at the head of the gulf of Akabah. The Turk ish ambassador in London as yet has made no arrangements to leave and the embassy still maintains a concili atory attitude. Jhe closing of the North Sea to all shipping except that placed under th protection of the British fleet is rec ognized as the first stroke of Admiral Huron Fletcher, the new first sea lord of the admiralty, and also as one of the most important events. All cargoes destined for German or Austrian con sumption must now run the gauntlet of ISritish protection in the F.nglish Chan nel, the Strait of Gibraltar of the Suez Canal. The making of the North Sea a mil itary area already has brought adverse comments from Germany. The Cologne Gazette claims Great Britain has virt ually proclaimed the blockade of the North Sea which its fleet will be un able to enforce. Newspapers at Hol land also raise objections to the re strictions placed on the navigation of the North Sea. Nicholas to the Front PETROGRAD, Nov. 3. Emperor Nicholas has left for the front with General Sokhomlinoff, minister of war. The official Russian general staff tonight says Germans everywhere on the East Prussian front have adopt ed the offensive. The statement said: "On the East Prussian front the Germans every where have adopted the offensive. Our troops have advanced some dis tances. "Beyond the Vistula to the north west of Politza our troops advanced without any considerable fighting, and occupied Schadek, Lask and Rosprza. On the front from Rado sczie and Kielcc the enemy is re tiring in the direction of Vlosczow.

Bennett of the bureau of animal in dustry answered their protests with the statement that the slaughter of the suspected cattle at a cost of $10,000,000 is cheap compared with the incalculable loss frum a spread of the malady. There is no way of fighting the plague known except the destruction of affected and suspected animals, and federal agents favor the closing of the Union Stock Yards, the largest cattle market in the world, and such an order, rcscinuca only alter neavy M pressure was urougni 10 near, may yet be given. The packers say the price of beef will drop because cattlemen will rush their stock to market fearing to risk the diseases and cattle are now re ceived only for immediate slaughter.
