The fast football played by Coach
Yost's men brands them as winners

igan a firmer hold on the champion-
ship. Wisconsin is out of the race,
but in view of the Badger's strong
fight on Saturday, surprises may be
looked for when Minnesota goes up
against Curtis' pupils. The Gophers
had the expected easy time with Ilhn-
ois, winning in a walk, by a score of
32 ,to 0. Schacht, the burly tackle,
was the star, and never failed to
make his gain.
Chicago's hard luck undoubtedly
lost Saturday's game to West Point.
With an even break, Stagg's men
would have won 6 to 5. The game,
notwithstanding the Westerners' de-
feat, has had a salutary effect upon
football relations between the East
and the West. Stagg's men played a
remarkable game in many respects,
and the strength of the Maroon of-
tense surprised the Eastern followers
of the sport. Kansas lost to Neras

Princeton established her claim to
the championship of the East by her
great victory over Yale. Princeton

individual performance of the Tiger
captain, Dewitt, in kicking a goal

the game by a score of I1 to 6. For
the second time this year Harvard
suffered a mortifyingdefeat, this time
at the hands of little Dartmouth,
whose giant forwards smashed
through the Crimson line at will. The
final score was 11 to 0. Columbia de-

Curtis has a chance to go in as the

opinion, however, points to the selec-
