Championship of the West May Be

Between Men from Minne-

BY WALTER H. ECKER8ALL.
Chlcngo, Oct. 27. Probably novor in
tho hiBtory of western football have
gameB boon played on tho Inst Satur
day In October that will rank In im
portance with the contosts scheduled
for next Saturday.
Heretofore tho big teams havo ar
ranged tholr schedules in, such a way
that tho moro important and crucial
struggles occurred lator In tho season,
when tho elovens woro In bettor con
dition And moro fit to stand hard bat
tles. The playing of Saturday's games
necosBltatcB 'the contending elevens
bolng in the best of shapo'and at the
pinnacle of footbull perfection.
Tho Chicago-Minnesota, WlsconBln
Northwestorn, IlllnolB-Purduo, M'lchl-gan-SyracuBo
and Notre Damo-pitta'-burg
battles are the ones up for deci
sion and tho results of these contests
will bo awaited with interest. In view
of tho fact that tho results of tho flmt
named two games will havo a direct
bearing on tho woBtorn championship.
and Michigan and Notro Dahio will be
engaged in lnterscholastlo contests, the
contests are of moro than usual Impor
Maroohs Game Most Important.
Although Michigan will moot Syra
cuse at Ann Arbor apd Purdue will
Journoy to Urbana to give battlo to
Illinois, tho Chtcago-MinneBota contest
at Minneapolis will occupy Uio center
of tho wostorn football Btago. Evon
In tho oast thore Is not. a game schedt
uled which will take on tho impor
taneo or 'this gamb. Both coaches
havo proparod their elovens carefully
for thlB battlo and thoso who fitness
it will see moro advanced football at
this tlmo of tho year than ovor before
In tho history of tho game In this
Because of tho Intense football ri
valry which always has existed be
tween Purdue and Illinois this contest
means a great deal to thoso vitally
concerned, but outside of this It car
ries little Importance. Both teams
havo been defeated, by conference
elevens. Consequently they are out of
tho running for tho title nnd the re
sult only will furnish a basis for rating
the' western conference ' teams at thb
end of the season. , . , ,L.
' Case Not Help7e6s!
With Stagg cb'ntlrittfnto send but
bqar. storlpB abou.t'.'hJB .tea',' while lit
tle Ib hoard of the.ipractlce at Minne
apolis one not conversant with tho sit
uation would lieei'ltf' 'believe that
Chicago already Is 'beaten,, and tho de
feat only a matter of tho score. Ever
since Stagg Iibb been coach M Ghl-
cago ho has pursued this policy and
those who have followed the Maroon
ootbali fortunes ior-any lo'ngth of tlmo
know Just how much faith to place in
One thing is certain. Stagg will
place ateanvonNotthfup?flcld on-8aU
urday which Will be a Worthy 'tippon
ent for Minnesota, despite statements
to tho contrary. The wlfcard of tti
western football world knows what he
is doing by handing out these bearish
.statomentB and he knows just, what .ef
fect they ih&Yo on thb playerB.., ,
As 'the -day df tho great battle npv
proachoB, fbllbwere of the Mkroott
team may rest assured that out on' th'6
Midway Stagg Is. sawing wood and will
isprlng plays on Minnesota which, are
sure to baffle tho Gophers. Tho Ma
roon (Soadh 1b ttwaro of the' fatct that
only tho fiercest kind of, charging ahd
smashing will stop Minnesota's at
tacks, and unless the Gopher offense
shows moro speed on Saturday than it
has In Us earlier contests, Chicago
will stop Minnesota, most of the time,
without much gain.
Stagg is knoVn to bo a wizard In
devising a defense to meet an op
ponent's nttack. Bteffen has soon Min
nesota in its threo games, and the
former star being a good scout, has
given Stagg a good idea of Minne
sota's plays. Most of tho weok will
bo devoted In perfecting this defense
nnd by Saturday It Is almost assured
It will fetich a point where It success
fully will stop the Gophers' attacks.
Gophers In Four Hour Drill.
Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 27. Coach
Williams ordered his squad to report
at,.2:3Q o'clock, and Jt w.as long nfter
sundown when the plnyers filed lntd
tho armory. ' ' '.
Much time was spent In strength
ening the dorense. "Big" Harris, who
haB witnessed all the Chicago games
this season, has coached the scrubs
in tho stylo of play used by Coach
Stagg up to date', the scrubs failed
to riiakri consistent "gains by" these
plays. On several occasions the sec
ond team pulled off forward passes for
Tho regulars woro drilled In several
now plays which Dr. WllliamB expects
to uncork Saturday, and they now are
being pulled off in fairly good shape.
Smith's work at full back is improv
ing rapidly and the coaches havo given
up hope of Pickering's recovorlng In
tlmo for the Chicago game. This
means thnt McGovern will' be the only
experienced man In tho back field.
The now men are showing lots of
spirit, but havo never played In a big
game, and it Is hard to tell what will
happen when they buck up against the
votornn Chicago lino. OBtrnnd Ib giv
ing Powers n pretty hard fight for
right guard and it looks as if tho for-
j mer would beat out tho new man for
j tho honors.
I Minnesota will faco Chlcngo with
only five or possibly six of the regulars
(who plnyed In the Maroon game last
year, uauomacner and Mohlstad havo
played against Cnlcngo for the laBt
two years, while McGovern, Rarnham,
and Pottljohn wore In last year's con
test. If Ostrand gets In tho game he
will be tho sixth experienced man.
This is what makes tho task of beat
ing Stagg's championship team with
olght veterans look like a big oho.
Tho coaches and players are work
ing overtime In an effort to got tho
team In the best possible shape for tho.
game. Dr. Williams, is being ably as,
Blsted by eight or. ten alumni coaches.
A big masB meeting was held today
and much enthusiasm was aroused.
The student body is ready to stand by
the tonm In victory or defeat. A feel
lng prevails that tho winner of the
game will be in tho lead for the west
ern championship. The seat sale waB
largo and a crowd of 30,000 Js pre
dicted. Illlnl Team Is In Bad 8hape.
Champaign, '111., Oct. 27: Head
Coach Hall Is -nursing his half 'backs
and several of the best substitutes are
crippled. Watson and Gumm are laid
up and Hall Is seeking about for good
men. Mayer, a now luminary, may
get a chance as a reserve, and Richie,
