EXPECT CAPACITY MRO
AT ARMY-IISH CONTEST'
New York, Oct. 14.-A capacity
crowd of more than 50,000 is expect-j
ed to witness the Army-Notre Dame
football game Saturday at te Polo
Grounds where one of the most spec-
tacular of the intersectional series
between the two rivals will be fought.
IThe cadets, although generally re-
garded as having a stronger team
than the 1923 aggregation, since
Harry Wilson has been added to the
backfield, are not considering the
game with the same over-confidence
1 which was credited with hastening
their 13-0 defeat last season.
The blue comet, which went into
the Army contest last year fighting
to live, will meet an alert group of
veteran stars, who will be deter-
mined to cross the Notre Dame goal
line-something which no Arimy man
has done during the last three years.

most valuable man to his team during

Paris, Oct. 14.-The first stage of
the negotiations between France and
Germany for the formulation of a
niommercial treaty, have ended.
Numbered among the outstanding'
clashes will be numerous prominentj
intersectional games, while many ofl
the more important teams in both thet
West and East will come together.
In the Big Ten, the outstanding 4
game is, of course, the Michigan-Ill-
inois fracas at Urbana. These two
teams, tied for the Conference title
last year, are expected to put tip the
battle of the year in the new Illini
stadiimii. Wisconsin and Minnesota
will meet in another prominent game
in the Conference, while the North-
wcstern-Purdue and Chicago-Indiana
games are the other tilts of note in
the Middle West. These battles will
start the process of clarifying the Big
The Badger-Gopher game will be a
stiff battle, and its outcome will be
important. The Wisconsin eleven was
not really tested in the 7-7 tie with
Coe last Saturday due to the fact that
practically an entire second eleven
took the field for the Madison school.
Minnesota showed power in defeating
laskell 20-0 in Saturday's game, as
the Indians have a fast team. Mal-
colm Graham, at quarter, is the chief
m instay of the Gophers.
The other two Big Ten tilts will not
be likely to have a bearing on the
title, but they will prove interesting
in that the weaker teams have shown
nuch improvement this year. Chi-
ago's reversal of form in beating

better in the eyes of fans, who were
disappointed in the Staggnmen when

sensational Colgate back, they will be
well on their way to a victory.
Ohio State will play Ohio Wesleyan,
while Iowa stacks up with Lawrence

Eastern games will bring together
Yale and Dartmouth, Cornell and
Rutgers, Penn and Columbia, Prince-
ton and the Navy, Harvard and Holy
Cross, W. and J. and Carnegie Tech.,
and Williams and Renssalaer, besides

mouth and Princeton-Navy games will
hold the center of attention. Cornell's
work against Rutgers will be watched.
closely because of the defeat of the
Big Red team at the hands of Wil-
liams last Saturday.
Another important contest to be
played in the East is the Army-Notre
Dame fracas at New York. The Sold-
iers' work against the U. of D. last
week was nothing extraordinary, and
the Irish showed ability in beating
Wabash by a 34-0 count. Rockne's
eleven will probably trim the Cadets,
although the score is not expected to
attain a high proportion.
Georgia Tech and Penn State will
meet at Atlanta in one of the promin-
ent intersectional games. The Quak-
ers have won three games by large'
