IOWA CITT. .Ia,. Nov. 17.-(SpeclaU-With
every hotel crowded, with frater
nity houses packed from cellar to garret
and eyery available accommodation taken,
while mere alumni, Ames supporters and
visitors come on every train, Iowa City
ta tonight awatUng what promises to be
the greutsst battle of. tha year In, the
state. Tonights mass weeing faw the
spirit and euthuxlusm of tliel Iowa student
body aroused, to the highest pitch ever
rcuched. Over S.OUt) rooters crowded the
big auditorium to Its capacity and ninny
crowded into the halts, where they could
heur only the sound of the yells and
1'or the first time In the blntory of
contests here the ticket scalping evil hna
made Its appearance. Speculators have
got hold of several blocks of the bt
seats and are holding them for double
prices, with every Indication of belnir
able to get thorn when the rush comes In
Saturday morning. Without doubt the
srtet crowd ever on low a field wJl
puis through the gates tomorrow.
The Iowa team put In Its laat practice
hht afternoon, and this conxiated merely
of light signal work. No ecrtmmuge has
been attempted since Tueeday evening,
Haw ley fearing injuries to hU meu on the
frozen ground. The work this evening
wus merely limbering-up eierclte, and
tho men were taken for a short trip up
the river us a means of getting them
away from the excitement in town. They
were not allowed to- attend the mass
meeting tonight for the sums reason.
The Iowa team wilt line up exactly as
It did at Purdue. Curry, the daohlng

game, us ho l vory anxious to play and
can be depended upon to cut a few cir

that the Aggie defenae will be too strong.
O'lirl.n's toe Is the chief reliance here
for store, and "Fat" has been dolnj

Among oilier, things Captain Tierce
touches upon In his communication are
noticed of the following;
"It la a pleasure again to state that
tha National Collegiate Athletlo asso
ciation Is In a flourishing condition.
Evidently the' colleges aud universities
throughout the land are reaching tha
firm conviction that a na'.ion-wlde effort
hi necessary to secure the best educa
tional results from collegiate athletics.
It Is on Ihitf account, then, that the Na
tional Collegiate Athteiic nKitioi haa
grown In membertrftp, to some eighty col
leges and universities, whoee students
number more than lOO.Oou.
' "At the annual meeting the program
will Include the following addresses:
The Military Value of Athletics to a
Nation." Major General Leonard Wood,

"it Is proposed this yesr to hold an
evening session, as which an opportunity
will be given for an interchange of views
from representatives', of all .arts of the
country on topics of Immediate and gen
eral Interest, such as the employment of
professional coaches. Topics for discus
sion may be suggested by delegates and
tl.e proceedings will be Informal.
"In connection with recent discussions
with regard to the use of professional
ctschas in collegiate athletics, the fol
lowing resolution, adopted at tba last
annual meeting of the National Collegiate
Athletic association, should be of special
interest: i (
" it is the sense of the National Col
legiate AthL-tlo association that coaching
aud training ba conf-ned to the regular
members of tha teaching stuff employed
by the governing board of the Institution
.for tha full academic year; and, further,
that athletics ba made a tegular depart
ment or, combined with physical educa
tion, constitute a regular department and
receive the sums consideration and be
given equal responsibility, and be held
to the same accountability as any ether
i purtinent In a college or university.'

"It Is not expected that all institutions
of learning wUI be able ti conform to
this resolution Immediately, but U ex
presses an ideal toward which all the uni
