Big Ten Conference Opens
Practice . September 15
Several Teams Will Be
With the advent of Sepjefriber, the
month devoted to preliminary foot
ball training, gridiron squads will
be mobilized at the various institu
tions to receive instruction for the
opening games, to be played the
flatter part of the month.
, All indications point to the season
being just as successful and featured
vbv the same, hard fought battles that
characterized the one of a vear aero.
The schedules have been drawn, and
the list of games promises a rarS
treat for the follower of the pigskin
game. Aside from the contests
jV.-hich will decide sectional su
premacy, a number of important in
,tersectional clashes will be played.
Prep Rivals to Meet.
Although the east and west have
never met with representative teams,
lrep school foot ball supremacy will
be settled this year to a more satis-
factory degree than ever before. Fol
' -lowing the successful base ball game
between the leading teams in Chi
cago and New York Citv last vear.
a Chicago newspaper is backing an
intersectional foot ball contest this
year which will brine the best eleven
;f!r Chicago against the best in the
eastern 'metropolis.
. ; The Olympic games showed plain
ly tha.t not enotgh encouragement is
given our prep school athletes. The
Vwserable showing which the United
-ta(cs made in the long distance
funs at Antwerp demonstrated that
:Jbng distance running must be fos
v' tered and encouraged in the prep
school if we are .to be successful in
future Olympic contests. ,
Better Coaching Needed.
j. The prep school elevens are g'rven
"little orino encouragement during
the season. Their teams as a rule
- are coached byv -alumni or by the
captains. These men seldom have
good idea of advanced foot ball. As
a result, prep, school stars have a
Jot to leant wher they enter college,
Their games are arranged in a hap-
X hazarrl manner. nnrt. if ihfv arc
beaten at the beginning of the sea
son, they dp not enter into succeed
ing games with the proper spirit.
With a chance of meeting tfie best
jn -New York, City for foot ball
supremacy of1 the two cities, the
prep school players in both cities
will enter, into their foot ball train
ing, not 'only to win the titles of the
respective cities but, for the right to
demonstrate which plays the better
brand of foot ball. Sucli a series is
a mighty good thing for foot ball in
--general and especially for the prep
school warriors.
, Big Ten Starts September IS.
In the central west mast of the
big teams, especially tfiose in the
western conference,. are forbidden by
' rule . to start practice before Sep
tember. 15. There is jtro rule, how
ever to prevent the players from
tinK in physical condition as
soon as possible, so that they will
be able to enter into practice on
the opening day with plenty of en
thusiasm. '
Center' college of Danville, Ky.,
and yalparaisb university of In
diana, jf-hich wjjl meat Harvard in
important early swflson intersec
tional games, will start worlj this
week. It goes without saying that
tne western elevens will be opached
to the height of foot ball perfection
when they go east,Nas each realizes
a victory over the Crimson will make
the season a success, no matter how
other games result.
Change at Northwestern.
' Only one ciang has taken place
in the coaching departments of con
ference institutions. Elmer- Mc
Deavitt, a former Yale player, has
succee43 Charley Baciman as head
gridiron mentor at Northwestern.
The new Purple coaijh has a mighty
hard schedulers his team will play
its first important game with .Minne

Notre Danta on the'Saturday before

will be 'the !irst trip of a Maroon

the-great Biily Haston, were victor
