Chicago, Oct. 17. Today's football
schedule contains a rich variety of at
tractions. The weather from . the
spectators' standpoint could not be
better for comfort but was too warm
to please the players.
For the west most interest centered
in the contests between teams repre
senting the Universities of Illinois and
Chicago at Chicago; Wisconsin and
Indiana at Bloomington, Ind., and Min
nesota and Nebraska at Minneapolis.
The principal games in the east
were the Army vs. Yale at West Point,
Pennsylvania vs. Brown at Philadel
phia, and Dartmouth vs. Williams at
Williamstown. . ,
Many Other Battle.
There are numerous other battles
scheduled that promise good sport.
