11,c i(sjf and~ Illinois to Decide Rela.
tive 3erits of C'orps
Champaign, 111.. April 27.-An ar-
gument between the alumni of Wis-
consin and Illinois universities over
the respective merits of the two
schools' military departments will
probably be settled by a three-days
sham battle between the two :sniver-
sities' military corps. , The battle will
be staged on the border line between
the two states under the direction of
umpires from the war department
some time in May. It will afford an
excellent opportunity for students and
ofli crs to demonstrate their knowl-
edge of fighting, and incidentally to
familiarize themselves with some of
the hardships of war.
