When Michigan plays Minnesota
more is at stake than the game. The
other is the honor of holding the,
"little brown jug" for another year.
That jug has done much to keep riv-
airy between the two schools at a
high pitch during the past few years
and both teams are anxious to win its
holding for the next 12 months.

two previous years.
