Prospects of Other Colleges.
Last Saturday the football seasoes
opened in dead earnest all over the
country. In the West all the big-
colleges except Illinois opened the'
season auspiciously. Illinois was de-
feated by College of Physicians, and
Surgeons by a score of 11 to 6. The
defeat means that Illinois will be
worked harder for its game withs

at half-back will certainly be missed
at Wisconsin this year. Holmes who
was one of the best tackles in the
west last year, has returned to col-
lege. Contrary to the statements
sent out from Madison, Stagg has ex-
pressed no objection to Holmes' play-
ing. Odea is said to be kickiig bet-
ter than ever this year.
Northwestern amassed more points'
against Dixon Normal than it has
ever done against any team so early
in the season. Perry, has im-
proved in experience over last year,
when he had the capabilities for be-

the Saturday before. The rain, which
interfered all over the west, made
the ball slippery, and there was
plenty of fumbling. Chicago played
a fast game. Rogers, who was tried
at tackle, ran well with the ball, and
will be kept in the tackle position.
Chicago's chances for a good line are-
much brighter than they were ow
week ago. In any event, with nine

intend to let Minnesota repeat its
shocking record of last year, and the
Wisconsin-Minnesota game will be'
like the struggles of old days.
