gan chalked up her first Conference victory of the 1927 season here this
afternoon by winning her tenth game from the Badgers in the eleven

MADISON, Wis., Oct. 15.-Eager for
a Wisconsin victory over Michigan in
today's Important grid clash at Ran-

broke loose last night and painted the
town of Madison "Red." The pent-up

lower campus last night.
Building fronts and sidewalks bear
such signs as "Break the Jinx"-"Beat

Wolves" and "Yump on Yost." This
spirit emanates through the players
who will bear the Cardinal against the
powerful Maize and Blue today. Wis-

for some time, going into the game as
they are-the under dogs.
