CHICAGO, Oct. 15 Although It la
oarly in tho season to prodlct such an
outcome, and toams of othor institu
tions are not to be despised, the foot
ball contest between Chicago and Wis
consin looms up as tho crucial ono of
tho season. All lovers of sport In tho
'west rogrot tho breaking off of athletic
relations with Michigan, and this con
flict with Wisconsin is now regarded
as tho "big gamo" of tho yoar.
Coaches and playerB will bend all
tholr energies toward this gamo, with
tho preceding games as a necessary
help inporfoctlng tho plays and condi
tioning tho playors. From tho present
outlook tho prospects of both toams
scorn about on a par. There are
enough veterans on oach team to form
a nucleus, with tho 1907 freshmen and
substitutes to draw from. In Madison
tho rootors nro anxiously awaiting tho
outcome of examinations, as tho fato
of Wisconsin football success this sea
son depends in a largo measure on
how tho men got through. The con
ference rulos have cut football ma
terial to such a point that tho loss of
a single man can mar tho success of a
team for tho season.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Oct. 15 For
two hours and a half yesterday, Coach
Williams kept drilling tho Gophers
In preparation for tho gamo with No
braska on Saturday. Ono of Dr.
Williams' assistants saw the Cornhus
kers play last Saturday and ho has
thrown a scaro Into tho Gophers'
camp by the report of Nebraska'
strength. Tho scrubs had tho ball for
tho most part today and at times tore
up tho first team for long gains. Thoy
had little success In skirting the onds,
however. Minnesota is looking for a
hard contest on Saturday and consid
erable apprehension Is felt ns to tho
outcome of this gamo. Tho hotting
fraternity is calling for ovon money.
IOWA CITY, Iowa, Oct. 15 Arrange

on Friday and at 3:30 o'clock the
Hawkeye squad, headed by the mascot,

at Columbia just In tlmo to eat a
light lunch and dress for tho game.

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 15
Clouds darkened In the Michigan camp
today, when it was learned that Ed
munds, who has looked good at full,
would be unable to return to college.
In Its present crippled condition this
loss 1b a sevoro blow to the team.
It looks now as if Yost is going to
have a hard tlmo to find eleven men
to lino up against Notro Dame. It Is
not certain that Schulz, Davison, or
Crumpacker will be able to get In Sat

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 15 The
Harvard practice yesterday was de
voted almost wholly to strengthening
tho defoiiBo. The second team was
given the ball and allowed to retain
it all the afternoon, being sent against
tho varsity repeatedly to try out the
first string men on tho defense. Not
once did tho second eleven succeed In
gaining its distance by either rushing
or on the forward pass.
A departure from tho traditional
routine footbull practice early In tho
afternoon was a scrimmage Instead of
waiting until the most of the men
wore tired out by tho other practice.
There waB plenty of snap and go to
this scrimmage though it was very
brief. Graydon waB shifted from tho
back field to right end, and Coach
Campbell devoted most of his atten
tion to Graydon all the afternoon. Cut

that Illinois will win, but the Gophers
