EVANS'TON; Ill., Oct. 2-North-
western's football teams open, their
fall season Saturday in a double
header engagement with Butler
university of Indianapolis and Loy-
ola university of Chicago. The
game will be played before a crowd
of nearly 35,000 which will be the
largest opening day crowd in theI
history of football here.
Coach Hanley expects both visit-
ing teams to give his men a severe
test. Butler is bringing an experi-
enced team which should give the.
Purple varsity a close battle.
In Alani "Red"' Fromiuth, Patsy
Clark, the new Butler coach, has a
capable quarterback who can also
pass and kick. John Cavosie, sopi-
omore half, is expected to make
a name for himself. Francis Royse
is the other half who will start
against the Purple.
Coach Hanley is expected to
start a veteran backfield against
Butler with the exception of Henry
Bruder, sophomore, at half. "Yatz'
Levison will probably get the call
at quarter with Capt. Holmer at
full and Bill Calderwood at the
other half. I
Two sophomore ends will prob-
ably start at the end positions.
They are Wade Woodworth and
Frank Baker. The tackle assign-
ments will find Frank Sinkler and
John Hazen, two veterans, on the
job while Justin Dart and Henry
Anderson, also veterans, will prob-
ably be at the guard positions

EAST LANSING, Oct. 3.-With
formal scrimmages banned for the
week by Coach Harry Kipke, Mich-
igan football squad today was
scheduled to get some rather in-
tensive offensive drill with forward
passses playing a promninent role.
Perfection of the attack is Kip-
pe's aim as he prepares for the
game Saturday with Albion col-
lege, always a tough foe in the
past for the Spartans
Coach Kipke has announced that
he plans few if any changes in
the lineup he serit against Kalam-
I azoo college last Saturday. Should
the four cripples on the squad ap-
peakl in good shape it is likely,
however, that they will either start
or else see plenty of action before
the game is over.
As was expected in view of
State's inability to complete a sin-
gle pass out of seven attempted
against Kalamaboo the aerial game
came in for consiaerable work
Monday. Schau and Crall showed
better form in flinging out the ball.

LAFAYETTE, ind., Oct. 3.-With
two weeks of preliminary drill re-
vealing great possibilities providing
reserve strength can be developed,
Coach Jimmy Phelan's P u r d u e
football squad has started tapering
off for the season's opener against
DePauw here Saturday afternoon.
The Methodists, an old state
rival eleven of the Boilermakers,
in recent years have given the Pur-
due eleven all it could handle, and
last year fell after a great fight,
15 to 0. The game will provide the
acid test for the Boilermakers be-
fore they jump into their strenuous
early Big Ten schedule which calls
for a trip to Minnesota on October
13, the Homecoming game against
Wisconsin ,here on October 20 and
the annual jaunt to the Midway
against Stagg's Maroons on Octo-
ber 27.

Anyone interested in selling
programs for the football
games please apply for con-
cession card any day this
week, third floor of the Michi-
gan union, between 7 o'clock
and 7:30.
