the matter of a Yale-Chicago game
next fall will be discussed. His trip
is primarily- for business, but it is

known to favor a game.
Talk of a game for next season has
been revived because of the fact that
Yale's new stadium will be completed

The contest will talce place at Coff

While some of the advantages
Ritchie possesses are obvious, there
is no harm in recapitulating them.

Chicago, Dec. 6.—An "All Ameri

Mathewson was considered a star
on the gridiron and to him Capron
