stand, those already occupying the
position of vantage wondered what

During the course of the gridiron
battle, numerous "poison gas" at-

Duringthe latter part of the game,
when the moleskin bullet came peri-
lously near the Wolverines' goal
trenches, the yearling regiment ex-
ecuted a daring flank attack. An im-.
portant position was captured by this
move, and the youthful football fans
were ableto observe the enemy at the
time of its most desperate offensive.
Other, minor gains of a few yards
were made on all fronts.

as well as the expected vast increase
of business traffic, will strain to the
