DECIDIG GAME TO BE PLAYED
AT MADISOX. (
3IInnesU and Wisconsin Sow Stand
Utulf ( Clash.
Can Wisconsin beat Minnesota anJ
become middle western champions?
That Is the question Wisconsin and
Minnesota football fans In the central
west and men out here In Oregon arts
asking each o:her after th.e great
showing made by Doc' Williams' elev
en against Chicago last Saturday.
To tell the truth, it look3 like the
Gophers. After an Indifferent show-i!
Ing in the early part of the season th ;
northerns have developed . into the ;
most formidable aggregation in th
west and it Is a pity that Michigan t
does not appear on the Gopher sched-J
uie this ran.
Chicago was conceded a chance, tho
best in fact that it has bad in two
years, but Stagg's muchly touted ma
chine received tlhe worst trouncing
since -tlw day that Minnesota first be
came a factor in western football cir
cles, winiams aggregation pieaeii:
ed an almost lrreslstable attack which
the famous Chicago defense could not
cope with and the consequent result
was that the Wldway warriors never
had a look In. , . '
Maroons Are Outclassed. .
Tfre post mortnms show" that ther?
was little of a comparison to be made
between the 'wo teams, Chicago was
woefully outciased and despt'ra a hard
fight succumbed to a better team.
Down at Wisconsin E4chard's ag
gregation took Iowa into camo by a
score of 12 to 0 and In addition suf
fered the loss of thi?Ir star halfback.
Pollock, the bftr crew man.
Wisconsin did not run tin the big
total against the Hawkeye1 iad that
Minnesota did, but tlhen It Is to be "ex
pected that Iowa nut up a much bet
ter game aoralnst Wisconsin after the
added experience gained In one con
ference game. The Badgers also suf
fered materially through penalties
and this also in a measure kept down
the score. ' '

In the eft8t Princeton appears to
have all but won the championship of
that section. True, W'iBBt Point has
an equal claim to the title, having de
feated Yale, while Harvard fell before
the onmsbeg ot the sturdy orange and
black warriors. ;
. It was a lucky win for Prtilfceton.
but nevertheless It was a victory and
can not be deputed, although Harvard
made as good a showing, If not a bet
ter one, than Princeton.

mind be should be asUed to specialize
for the quarter hurdles. A half milci
