Eight" or her maintenance ns an In

tomorrow riftprnoon, according to a
Chicago report. Although Nohrnska
oflicialH know nothing of it, the Chi
cogo dopesters glvo Nebarska a place
among the schools seoklng admission
to the western conference.
While it is quite likely that Ne
braska would Join the conference in a
hurry if asked, the question has been
a "dead one" so far aB the Cornhusk-
eiB are concerned for two yoars pant.
The (;hlcngo dream is tho first news

Who Is Second?
Chicago, Nov, 17. Noxt-Saturday's
football game between Chicago and
Wisconsin, which will be piayed at
Marahall field, will dotormlno which
eleven will land second place In the
ranking of the conference colleges.
Tho unexpected trouncing the Badg
ers received last Saturday in tho Min
nesota struggle should make Chicago
a favorite In this contest. The Go
phers were developed to a greater
height of football perfection than
when they met tho Maroons, but they
Were without the services of Capt.
McGovern, who made all Minnesota's
scores possible In the Chicago game.
On the bthor hand. Wisconsin had am
ple time to prepare for the struggle,
and It' Is safe to say tho Badgers wore
dovoloped to a high degree of ef
ficiency for their gamo with tho Go
phers. Chicago's showing against Minne
sota undoubtedly was more Impres
sive than tho Badgers.' When Stugg's
eleven mot tho northerners four of his
best players were badly crippled and
were unable to do themselves or the
team justice. However, Chicago
fought Minnesota for every yard de
spite this handicap, and If McGovern
hud not possessed tho ability to
kick goals from tho field the final
score would huve been 11 to 6.
Badgers Quit In Second Half.
In this battle Chicago fought hard
all tho time and was playing bettor
football near the close of tho strug-,
glo than Minnesota. In their battle
with the Gophers, the Badgers seemed1
to weaken In tho seqond period and to
allow tho northerners to trample over
them and gain when and where they
