CONTEST OF WILDCATS .
WILL BRING TOGETHER .
PURPLE AND KENTUCKY1
(Special To The Daily)
EVANSTON, Oct. 17-It will be
wildcats against wildcats when
Northwestern and Kentucky meet
in Dyche stadium here Saturday.
Both teams are nicknamed the
"Wildcats" and if their names mean
anything, the coming contest1
should see some ferocious fighting.
Two players on the Kentucky
eleven are brothers of famous grid
stars. Ed Covington, shifty half-
back, is a brother of Herb Coving-
ton, all-American quarterback at
Centre college several years ago
when that institution was turning
out its great elevens, and Sandy
Nowack, regular end on the Ken-
tucky team, is a brother of "Butch"
Nowack, captain of the University
of Illinois eleven this year.
Dixie Line Is Heavy
The Dixie team has one of the
heaviest elevens in the South and
judging from its victory over Wash-!
ington and Lee last -Saturday is in'
line for high honors among the
southern teams this year. The Ken-
tucky line averages 192 pounds.
Besides meeting the Kentucky
Wildcats, Northwestern will also
tackle the Notre Dame second team
in a game which will open the af-
Several members of the Purple
squad who faced Ohio last Satur-
day will be unable to participate in
