estimate the strength of the teams
we shall meet. So far as can at
present be judged, Northwestern,
with her battety of Griffiths and
Iedzie, will be the strongest team
we shall meet. ioth Illinois and
Wisconsin have good teams, how-
ever, and Illinois, at least, has had
the advantage of careful practice.
It is difficult also to predict just
how strong will be our own teas's
showing. So far our team has had
but practice games, and it must be
confessed the playing has not been
so uniform as it should have been.
A ready reason for this may be
found in the fact that the weather of
the past month has seriously inter-
fered with regularity of practice.
The work of the next two days and
of the first few games will have a
wholesome influence upon the team
and we shall expect to report a suc-
