' Chances Good.
BY WALTER H. ECKER8ALL.
Chtanirn. Nov. 11. Todny buw the
llnlHh of hard pructlco for tho foot
ball teams which will engage In con
tests on Saturday that will go a long
way toward deciding tho champion
ship in both Boctloue.
Chicago, wfhlch will glvo battlo to
Cornell, loft for tho oast today. Tho
Michigan olevon, which Is to play
Penn, already has started for tho en
emy's country. Both those western
teams have completed their training
for these Intoraectlonal battlos except
ing the light signal drills, which will
lu held In their opponents' territory
Although tho toams which will meet
In these contests cannot bo consid
ered leprosontatlvo elevens of tholr
sections, there Is considerable Inter
est In tho results. Pennsylvania Is
live only team of tho four that has
not been defeated, but It has been hold
to a tlo score by Lafayette, a team
which has been beaten In t'ho east.
Tho Maroons and Wolverines havo
been defeated by Minnesota and Notre
Dnmo, two of the strongest teams in
tho west, while Cornell has tasted de
reut at tho hands of Williams.
Teams Seem Evenly Matched.
When tho four elevens are consld
01 ed and tholr strength analyzed, none
of thorn seems to have much of an
advantage over another. The only
handicap tho westorn aggregations
will have to overcome is that of play
ing on strange grounds. As this does
not make much matorlal difference
theso contests are sure to be fought
The Maroons will arrive at Ithaca
Homo time tomorrow. Coach Stagg
will send tho team through a light
workout in tho afternoon on somo se
cluded lot, and this will end the prep
aration for the contest which Stagg
and the members of the team want to
With tho exception of ICasBulker,
who has not recovered entirely from
tho bumping ho got In the Minnesota
game, tho team is in superb condition
and ready to put up a great fight.

usual high clasB game. Tho other
cripples have come along in good
shape, and the team 1b more fit for
this game than for any It has played
Chicago Forced to Change Style.
Chicago will bo forced to play en
tlroly different football' In this strug
gle than it has played this season.
The strong lino of the Ithacans has
changed Sbagg's plan of attack com
pletely, for tho Maroons will have to
, nlopend largely on end runs and tho
frequent use of tho forward paBa and
onsldo kick for most of their gains.
Staggs scout witnessed the Cornell
Harvard contest last Saturday, and his
report of tho strength of tho C'ornoll
forwards has forced Stagg to glvo up

through the .line.- Chicago's play In
tho Northwostern game last Saturday.
In which tho players rnn from punt
formations and mado good gains, Is a
sample- of tho stylo of play which will
bo used In tho Cornell game.
Tho ends alBO will be called on fre
quently to run with the oval from
their position. It 1b this -sort of play
ing that is oxpectod to boat Cornell

practlco at tho Midway this week has
been confined mostly to learning thlfc
kind of plays and perfecting tho In
terference. Crawley, with his speed,
and Page are tho men relied on most
ly to advance tho ball on the end
. Cornell Defense Like Gophers.'
Cornell will use tho sumo sort of
defense as Minnesota did. The half
hacks will lie back about ten ,or fif
teen yards with Instructions to stay
there and not run up to reinforce the
line. In these positions the backs can
watch for forward passes and recover
onslile kicks. This will make It ex
tremely had for Chicago to gain much
ground unless those bucks can be
dravjjn up closer to tho lino by means
of old stylo football.
McGovern Not to Play.
Minnesota and Wisconsin, the
tc.ims which struggle on Saturday for
the western conference title, have al
iVDSt finished their preparation. Both
are on edge for the finy and a great
battle Is anticipated. Reports from

Michigan Team Goes East.
Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. 11. Nine
teen players and tho usual retlmio of
coaches and trainers, making up the
Michigan football squad, left last night
for Philadelphia for the annual game
with Pennsylvania. The team before
leaving was given tho greatest sendoff
accorded a Michigan eleven In four
years, the entire student body assem
bling at tlie station.
Enthusiasm was Increases when
Coach Yost expressed tho opinion that
Michigan will win.
"If Capt. Allerdice can play in the
game until the end, I am confident of
the outcome." said the coach. "Even
without him we havo the best -chance
we ever have had against Pennsylvania."
Tho final workout on Perry field
consisted of signal work, the varsity
rehearsing tho plays that have been
prepared for Penn. There 1b still some
fear that Capt, Allerdice will bo un
able to last the game through, al
though It. is certain ho will start.
With the exception of Conklln, at end.
and Edmunds, tho right guard, the
lineup will be the same as tho one
that oponcd against Notre Dame.
Tho following players woro taken:
Oapt. Allerdlco, Wasmund, Clark,
Magldsohn, Watklns, Benbrook, Ed
munds, Wells, Casey, Conklln, Miller,
Pattenglll, Preoney, Greene, Lawton,
Itanney, Smith, Kaynor and Rogers.

Representing tho defendant millers
of Nebraska In tho capacity of ,an ox
pert witness, Chancellor Samuel Avery
will next week testify In tho famous
"bleached flour" case In Des Moines:
Chancellor Avery has an exhaustive
knowledge of the effect of bleaching
upon tho food quality of Hour and he is
called on the stand In view of this
Tho Des Moines case Is that arising
from tho decision of Secretary Wilson
of the department of agriculture. In
which ho declared his belief that tho
bleaching of flour injured its char
acter as feed to suclj. an- extent as to
make It unfit for uso under tho na
tional pure food legislation. Accord
ingly ho ordered the stoppage of n
shipment of Nebraska flour In the
state of Iowa, tho flour having been
bleached after his decision.
Avery an Expert.
Since the seizuro of the flour both
parties to the case havo agreed to
make the Des Moines trial a test trial,
the decision there made to be binding
in all other, similar cases. In viow of
this fact both tho government and tho
millers have been arranging for ex
While at tho state farm in his early
days as a university Instructor, Dr.
Avery investigated the bleached flour
situation and determined Unit . the
bleaching did not injure tho flour. He
was tho first" man in America to con
duct a scientific investigation of tho
question. When the Des Moines cose
was announced for trial next week Ne
braska millers appealed to tho chan
cellor to act as a witness. He did
not consider It best for him to ap
pear In that capacity individually, and
accordingly laid the matter before tho
board of regents' yesterday.
In view of the great importance of
the case to tho millers of the state,
the regents ordered that the chancel
lor testify, he not to accept witness
fees, however, but his expenses to bo
paid by tho state.
Of Great Importance.
The flour case is of the greatest
Importance to the state. At present
tho milling of winter wheat is one of
tho big industries of Nebraska, employ
ing many people' and much capital. In
cobo the decision of Secretary Wilson
Is upheld practically the whole Indus
try will be ruined, for the unbleached
Nebraska flour cannot stand tho com
petition of certain other brands whloh
are not so greatly affected by tho
process. It was because of this rec
ognized Importance of the pending
case to a great industry of the stato
that the regents deplded to send Chan
cellor Avery to attend the trial.
