Victory Over Drake
AMK8, la.. Nov. 18.-(Speclal.)-The first
slriqg varsity, which was pretty severely
battered up In the game with Iowa Sat
urday, has been given very little hard
work this week in preparation for the
concluding game, of. the schedule with
l'rske at ls Moines Saturday. -.The
suiivarnity has been put through scrim
mage daily since Monday with the fresh
men, but the first lineup haa been given
light drills In signals and a large amount
of rest.. The coaches and aquad are con
vinced that the Bulldogs this year are
not the machine that can beat Ames.
They are confident that the result will
be an Ames result with a topheavy mar
gin favoring the state machine.

members of the Missouri Valley confer

to a close disastrous foot ball seasons

as to number of games won, yet Amea

Half a thousand ticket, have been re
