The Final Game in the Coliseum
Tomorrow Michigan and Chicago
meet on the gridiron in annual battle
and one of the greatest games of the
year is looked for. The outcome of
the game mans much to both teams.
Defeat for Chicago means that team's
being pushed down to third place or
worse, while to Michigan a defeat
tmeans as much. A victory for Chi-
cago means her advacement to a
position near the head, while a victory
for Michigaln will give her the top
place, to be held aone unless Wis-
corsin wins from Northwestern.
The record of the games played by
:hese teams in the past shows that the
contests have been close and hard
fought, and there is every reason to
believe that tte game of tomorrow
will not trove to be an exception.
