THREE (RUaCAL STRUGCLES ARE DUE
Battles at Madison, Harvard and New

In the 8ettllng of the
BY WALTER H. ECKER8ALL.
Chicago, Nov. 9. Football ganios
will bo playod on Saturday which will
bo practically semi-finals for tho cham
pionship in both sections of the coun
try. Minnesota and Wisconsin will strug
gle at Madison In tho crucial battlo of
tho conference season. Ynlo will take
pn Prlncoton at Now Haven in a game
which moans a great deal to both,
especially tho former. Harvard and
Dartmouth will clash at Cambridgo In
a contest that wllljnit one of them
out of tho running for tho title. Two
IntorBoctlonal battles also are up for
decision. Chicago will journey to Ith
aca to moet Cornell, and Michigan will
go' to Philadelphia to give battle to
If Minnesota wIhh from Wisconsin
It will have an undisputed claim to
tho championship of the conforoncw
colleges. If the Badgoru are the vic
tors they will have to defeat Chicago
on the following Saturday before they
will bo entitled to the championship.
Both teams have been prepared care
fully for this battle, which ought to
bo a thriller from start to finish.
Gophers Are Favorites.
The Gophers, by virtue of their de
cisive win over Chlcngo, are favorites.
Tho powerful line and' fast, speedy
backs of the team representing the
northwest Institution should nuiko It
more than a worthy foo Tor tho Badg
ers, who have not shown anything ho
far this season to warrant a victory
over the Gophers.
Coach Barry has held his eleven In
check all fall, and when It meets Min
nesota It will ho In condition to give
the Gophers n great battle. Wiscon
sin's line is much stronger than Chi
cago's. It will bo remembered that
the Gopher backs penetrated tho
Maroon forwards Innumerable times
for substantial gains and It is unlike
ly thoy will bo able to do this against
tho strong Wisconsin lino.
The varied offense of Minnesota is
another thing whloh will cause Wis
consin plenty of trouble. If ('apt. Me
Govern Is in shape to play, which no
doubt he will be, he will shoot plays
at every point of the Badger defense
In an endeavor to find a weak spot.
If ho Is successful In finding one ho
will hammer It until sufficient scores
nro made to warrant a victory.
Wisconsin's ends will have to bo
strong to stop the end running of Ste
vonB, Rosonwald and Radomachor.
When these playors carry tho ball
they are given splendid Interference,
and the Badger endB will have to do
mighty good smashing to stop these
playors from getting away on long
McGovern'8 Kicking an Asset.
Tho field goal kicking of McGovern
is another great asset of tho Gophers.
This little player booted throe of them
over the bar In tho Chicago contest,
and is dangerous anywliere inside of
tho forty-yard line. Ho is protected
nlcoly on his attempts, and ho takes
plonty of time to ndjust tho ball prop
erly, apd always kicks It over tho line
of scrimmage. His punting is another)
thing which makes him a dangerous
player. Ho boots the ball high and
far, which givos his ends plenty of
time to cover.
On tho other hand. Wisconsin will
not bo lacking In the kicking depart
ment if Kocklo Moll is in shape. This
player is a good punter and drop
kicker, and if he is In condition a
pretty kicking duel may be expected.
Like McGqvern, Moll is protected
nlcoly on his kicks and ho always gots j
thorn away In good shape. Ho is not
tho field general McGovern Is, nor as
good in tho open field. However, tho
work of these players will attract a
good deal of attention.
In tho big battlo in the oast Yale
Booms to Imve It on Prlncoton, but In
past years the under dog sometimes
has be,on succcpsful In downing the
favorite This yoar Yalo will bo an
odds on choice, and It will have to
win to moot Harvard the following
Saturday with a clean slato. Both
teams hnvo been groomed carefully
for this bnttlc, which should result in
a great exhibition of football.
Ithaca Game 8hould Be Close.
When Chicago and Cornoll meet, a
good, close game may bo looked for.
Neither Is a representative ono of Kb
section and both have been dofeated.
Tho Maroons have shown. groater ten
dencies to use tho forward pasB and
onsido kick than tho Ithacans, who
havo rolled mostly on old style foot
ball for their gains.
Both teams came through tholr
gamos Inst Saturday In good shnpo
and will take tho field In superb con
dition, ('apt. Pago'B sprained nnklo is
entirely well and ho can be oxpected
to play a groat game. Kassulker, the
end who wns Injurod in tho Minne
sota game, will be In shape to play.
Other players on tho Maroon team
who hnvo been handicapped by In
Injuries will bo well enough to play
good football. Tho decisive win over
Northwestern, coming as It did after
tho disastrous game with Minnesota,
will give the players courngo and con
fldenco to put up a hard fight.
Cornoll, after Its defent by Harvard
last Saturday, will havo to play hotter
footbnll than 'It hns displayed at any
time this season to win from tho Mid"
way aggregation. The Ithncans enn
not be rated as strong as last year,
when they played Chicago to a G to 0
tie. At the smuo time the Maroons
are not as powerful.
Michigan an In and Outer.
Michigan has shown such erratic
form this season that the result of Its
game with Pennsylvania Is hard to
figure. Tho Wolvorincs may go to
Philadelphia and play a whirlwind
game and they may get everlastingly
trounced. .Itist what effect the defeat
of last Saturday will have on the
players remains to be seen, but It Is
hoped they will come back and play
one of their good games.
Dartmouth and Harvard will clash
at Cambridge In what ought to be a
close and hard fought struggle. Neither
has been defeated this yoar and both
will tr hard for a victory. If the
Hanovertnns are the victory they will
have a right to share championship
honors with any other eastern eleven
that claims tho title
Chicago's New Plays.
Chicago, Nov. 9. Six plays, fash
ioned by Coach Stagg and designed to
bewilder Cornell In the nnnunl game
on Saturday, was taught the Maroons
yesterday In lieu of a scrimmage.
While tho head coach waB busy at this
Assistant Conch Walter Stoffen tutored
tho freshmen on tho Ithncans' tricks,
and tho relative morlts of tho eastern
and western brains will be disclosed
Tho now batch raises the total num
ber of tricks the Maroons now have
to over sixty, thirty of which never
havo boon exhibited. Some of thorn
aro bound to leak out at Ithaca, while
tho rest will be callod on to take the
moaBuro of the Badgers on Marshall
field Nov. 20.
It was learned from several mem
bers of the squad that tho newest for
mations to bo sprung on Cornoll aro
the most ingenious Stagg has given
this yoar. Ho never has been so anx
ious to win a game as that of next
Saturday. He sees a chance to makol
mo maroons recognized in tho eaBt
and will send his cloven on tho field
with Instructions to hold back noth
ing. Tho most distinguished visitor of
tho year Walter Camp appeared on
Marshall flold and staid through
practice. Camp liked the form dis
played by the MidwaylteB,' but steored
clear of predictions on tho outcome of
Saturdays' clash, declaring ho knows
nothing of Cornell except from hear
say. Ho praised Notre Da'mo highly
for Its playing in the Michigan game,
which bo witnessed.
Few Maroon rooters will accompany
the team to Ithaca, the high railroad
faro forbidding. The team Will leave
over the Lake Shore at 5:30 Thurs
day afternoon. It will stay at Niag
ara Falls tho day after tho game. -
Badgers Intact Once More.
Madison, Wis., Nov. 9. Fearing In
Jury to his stars, Coach Barry yester
day afternoon dispensed 'with tho ex
pected scrimmage and rantho Badg
ers througijpUfflgpnl,d'riirfor twb
hours. Tff(entire team was In tho
lineup, Boyle returning nfter an nb
sonco of a week.
Keckie Moll ran the team and put
lots of "pop" Into tho piny. Before
practice Moll and Anderson spent con
siderable time practicing punts and
drop kicks. Both handled the ball well
and will alternate at kicking on Sat
urday. Coach Barry took the squad
to tho stock pavilion last night and
again ho ran them through signals re
marking that the only hope the Badg
ers had against the Gophers was to
develop enough speed to overcome the
wolght against them.
The soat Bale was the largest ever
held at Wisconsin. Thb management
nnnounced last night that four times
as many tickets were disposed of yes
terday as on the first day or tho safe
preceding the Chicago game last year.
lowans In Shape for Ames.
Iowa City; la., Nov. 9. Iowa's foot
ball team came out of tho Drake game
in better physical condition than ex
pected. It Is probable every one of
tho men will bo able to take part In
the final contest for tho state cham
pionship, which will bo played here
on Snturday, Nov. 13, with AmoB. Iowa
has an opportunity of entangling tho
Missouri Valley championship prob

WILSON TELLS OF HIS
EXPERIENCE AT GENEVA
REPRESENTATIVE OF NEBRASKA
AT BIG JUBILEE.
FOUNDING Of A CREAT. UNIVERSITY
Ceremonial Observance of 350th Anni
versary of Founding of
the University of
An address of more than usual in
terest was given Tuesday morning at
convocation by Prof. H. H.' Wilson.
He was appointed as tho dologato of
the university to tho throo hundred
and fiftieth anniversary Jubilee of the
University of Genovn, by the chancel
lor, the celebration of which occurred
this summer. This university was
founded by John Calvin, and has had
a remarkable Influence upon tho world.
Tho celebration also marked tho four
hundredth anniversary of Calvin's
birth. The speaker said:
"The only authority I had at the
Jubilee of Geneva University was a
little certificate signed" by tho chan
cellor nnd bearing tho seal of tho unl
versity. We reached Europo on July
3 and spent tho next two and a half
months of our vacation thoro. Wo
had many strange experiences thoro
which como to one unfamiliar with
tho language or customs of tho coun
try. Ono of these experiences camo
when trying to buy a ticket from Flor
ence to Gjouova. In Italy one has to
go to tho window In tho depot where
tickets aro sold in tho class he wishes
to travel. Tho trip from Florence to
Geneva took about twenty-two hours,
which in this country should havo
taken about nine hours.
"Wo parsed through tho Slnrplon
tunnel, which is fourteen miles long.
On the Switzerland side wo ap
proached tho Rhone river near day
light, and the view of this repaid mo
for staying awake all night. It is a
beautiful valley. The river begins as
a considerable stream. niBhlng.out
from under thef rock. The valley Is

Geneva Near France.
"Geneva Is built -on a wedge tf&ond
ing out into France. From all sides
save the east it Is close to French
territory. Switzordand has been a
guiding star to modern republics nnd
yet it is small, being scarcely one
fifth the size of Nebraska, and yet
within this territory are three distinct
nationalities, Italian, German nnd
French, and each of these are as pure
in their nationality as any city in the
nation from whioh they sprang The
University of Goneva is in nearly
every reBpect French in character.

Wo were notified that In all tho
seances aendemic gowns or full dress
would be required. In that Bectlon
dresB suits aro alwayB in good form,
regardless of the time of day. All
solemn seances, as tholr formal func
tions were called, wore interesting af
fairs. - Tho first was tho presentation
of credentials and the extension of
congratulations from tho universities
represented. The United States was
called next after England. We all
arose when America was called. When
our university wns called its repre
sentative wont to the platform, grasped
the hand of the director and tendered
congrntulntions to tho university. Mine
wnB said in few words, but others
spoke longer. In Europo the academic
gown Is much In evidence; not our or
dinary black gown, but many of the
royal purple and other colors. Tho
program of receiving tho credentials
lasted for three and a half hours.
President Schrurman of Cornell deliv
ered tho address for all tho American
ropresontatives. In Europo there Is a
misconception of the meaning of state
university. They called ub tho Uni
versity of Lincoln and others likewise.
But ono school wns represented by a
lady. It was a girls' bcIiqdI In Eng
Innd. She mndo quite a long nddress
and was well received, although, be
cause a woman spoke In the cathedral
many were scandnllzed.
Not Large School.
"Goneva University Is not large, but
It has recently taken on new life;
now blood has been Infused, and It.
now draws students from tf largo ter
