a thing at this stage of the season is
unheard of at Wisconsin. The general
opinion is that Coach King remohv
bers the hard game Belolt put up last
year and is bound to be propared for it
this season. This seems unnecessary,
however, as the Badgers are fully ten
days ahead of their last year's form.
The scrimmage was hard and fast.
Not once was the 'varsity held for
downs, while the scrubs were unable to
make their gains for any length of
Driver was In the game for the first
time this ovenlug. He has decided to
resign from his state Job and will reg

had last year. Guard and quarter
alone remain to be filled now and ma
terial for both seems plentiful. For
the vacant guard position Crane,
Deerlng, Holsteln and Tenner are all
putting up strong games, with the
chances slightly in favor of Holsteln.
Hyde Paik haB been secured for
Saturday's game and the 'varsity ex
pect a speedy contest. Before the
game a kicking contest will be held for
a prize cup worth $100, donated by
Attorney Thomas Gill of Milwaukee.
