Tho Ames reports say that their
team is stronger by far than last

nosed out of tholr fourth victory.
Tho Amos mon will bo more than

rivals this year and promise Captain
Perry and his mon a merry fight Tho
game tonight will bo interesting also
from tho fact that this will bo tho
first contest between tho two schools
this year. Tho rivalry between tho
schools Is usually strong and this fact
will add zest to tonight's contest.

Columbia university shows the larg
est gain over tho previous year, the
number exceeding four ' hundred.
Omitting the summer session, the
largesL gains havo- been made by
Pennsylvania, Cornell, Wisconsin, Cal
ifornia, Ohio and' Nebraska, in tho
order named tho growth in each caso
being over two hundred. Last y"ear
there wero eight universities which
showed nn Increase of over four hun

that registration In general has not
