The line-up of the Douglas team will be somewhat changed, and several practices that have been held on the Juneau floor will make tbe game of tonight a hard battle. The boys' teams of the two schools will also mix tonight in their second name of the scries. The game should be a good one. It Is Is more than likely that Vestal, star of the Ju neau last year, will play tonight. Brown, one of the strong men of the Island team, is definitely out with an injured knee, and Martin Callwas. captain and running guard, lias been sli k for several days aud may not be la the line up. Gam will substitute for Drown and per haps Kronqvlst will be called upon tn play in place of Uallwas.
