But the Scarlet and Gray team is
a much greater obstacle for Zuppke'sI

dicate. Since 1915 these two elevens

On tihe 1a0ce of comig events, Mus-
kegon has a sliglht edge oin the
chances fo 'colpletilng the season un-

meet Muskegon on Thanksgiving day,
and the Grand Rapids team was able
to score only eight points against Lan-
sing, a team that bowed to Muskegon
on last Saturday by the score of 35 to
0. Muskegon, a favorite, may not have
as easy sailing as expected, however,
if the prediction from Grand Rapids
to the effect that the Centralites are
grooming for the Tianksgiving game,
prove correct.
Northwestern will play Detroit

Northwestern team is a, slight fa-
vorite, the Northernites, always a
threat to city champion, are this year

the year at Camp Randall field last
evening. They a e scheduled to put

will dash through a short practice at
Stagg Field in the early afternoon.
The Cardinal coaches were not op-
timistic regarding the outcome of to-
morrow's clash with Chicago, mainly
because too many of the dependables
are incapacitated. At least a half
dozen regulars, mostly linemen, have
been kept from active work all week
on account of injuries receivd in the
Iowa fracas.

Last year Ohio State defeated the
Illini, 7-6. Consequently Illinois is
due to be returned the winner tomor-
row. All of which goes to show the
futility of "doping" the outcome.
Whichever team wins tomorrow will
be upsetting precedent.
On paper Coach Zuppke posseses a
stronger outfit than Coach Wilce. But
games are not decided on paper. The
Illinois mentor's aggregation has been
called a firmanent without a star, and
he has a wealth of reserve material
available. It is rumored that he in-
tends to play the Buckeyes off their
feet by rushing his shock troops into
the0 fray.
