After watching the rugbyites and
prospective Stanford opponents prac-
tice the South African game for awhile
sterday, there seems to be a differ-
ce of opinion whether the game is
qf the order of an old time Mexican
"z ck light, or a good old fashioned love
feast. From appearances rugby is a
cpnglomeration of football, basketball
tnd soccer. But one of the South Af-
ricans on the team furnished enlight-
A line consisting of eight men call-
ed forwards and a backfield of two
half backs, one full bak and four
three-quarters make up the personnel
Qf the team. The scrumming or
scrimmaging is done by the line men
while groun~d-gaining and kicking is
acconplished by the three-quarters
f1ll back respectively. Rugby is a
, More open game than the American
sport, and the ball is advanced by
reful passing and manipulation of
the pig-skin
The game starts with a kick-off
from the center of the grid. No at-
tntion is paid to downs, the teams
scrumming, passing and punting until
a score is registered by one. The
touchdown counts three points, the
goal kick two points, and a field goal
o points. Halves are usually 25 min-
es in duration.
Yesterday the South Africans de-
ted their practice period to perfect-
g themselves in kicking, scrumming,
d passing. Van Heerden was show-
g some fine toe work, registering as
uch as 45 yards on some of his
icks. Scrimmaging consists of a reg-
ular routine. The men were pitted
gainst each other and put through
ght work-out. The South Africans
have adopted a formation used by a
am of their fellow-citizens to defeat
English aggregation in a series
f mtches.
Nothing further has been heard
om Leland Stanford as to the match
lhich will probably take place on the
oast on New Year's day. Unless an
nfavorable reply is received, the rug-1
y men will continue practicing until
e team leaves.

" he Purple hadn't withdrawn them-

f the Illini today in answer to Coach
urphy's statement criticizing IIi-e
ois, among other teams, for refusing

Northwestern, until this fall, was re-1
arded as a fixture on the local's card.
fter the 1915 season, however, the
urple did not evidence much en-
lhusiasni over a game, and after ag
ate had been held open 'until Dec. 2,
)Irector Huff closed with Purdue.
"We could not give Northwestern a
ate ,lbecause we had Purdue con-
tracted, and with Ohio, Chicago, Min-
esota, and Wisconsin, how could we
ake on another eleven?" said Zuppke.
'We are playing one of the hardest
chedules in the big nine. Northwest-
ern took itself off our schedule this
all. We could not very well break a
ontract with one of these other teams
to put it back."

After another day has passed and
nothing unforseen has happened, it
appears that the soccer team will open
its official fall season (winter if you
will) tomorrow morning. At the hour
of 30 in the morning on south Ferry
field, the soccerites bid fair to give
battle to the pedagogues from Ypsil-
The ;tated engagement will take
place only after two failures to bring
the teams together so far this fall, as
a contest has been canceled twice at
or in the vicinity of the eleventh hour.
Tomorrow's clash will have its pe-
culiar side to offer. The soccerites
had packed their duds for the winter
and had already hibernated behind
their books when the call came from
the Normal town that they could at
last take on the Wolverine4. Accord-
ingly the fray was scheduled forth-
The team held a scrimmage yes-
terday in preparation for the week end
party, and will hold another this aft-
ernoon. Three o'clock will see the
Reds opposite the Bluc,4. and part of
the combat will be held un:' the
lights as the session will last until 6

After a consultation with the of-f
ficials and in consideration of the
agreement made, the game played last
Monday was declared a scoreless tie
in favor of the soph engineers. Be-
fore this contest the teams involved,
the soph engineers and the fresh lits,
had battled three times to an equal+
number of draws, trying to decide the
winner of the second division. The
first game resulted in a scoreless tie,
the second fray in a count of 3 to 3,!

Although no official call has been is-
sued, most of the regulars and other
track aspirants have reported at the
gym, and according to Steve Farrell,
are receiving light workouts. The of-
ficial call for track will not be given
until after Christmas but all men in-
terested in this branch of athletics
might do well to see Coach Farrell at
once and get started..
The equipment for weight throwing
in the gym has not been completed as
yet and probably nothing will be done
along this line until after the Christ-
mas recess.

keeping up with his classes. He prob-
ably will be compelled to face trial by

Berry said: "It is true that I have
been ordered by Capt. Heisler to re-

easily be explained. My prolonged stay
on the border retarted by studies and
now all my spare time is occupied in
catching up."

pleted when this decision was reached
only the gains made during the last
three periods were counted in the
final reckoning. The official records
of these periods show the sophomores
to have gained 43 yards wh'ile the
yearling lits annexed only 26. Thus!

The sophomores rather upset the
dope by out-distancing their rivals in
the decisive game. Although no
strictly official record was kept of
ground gained during the first quar-
ter, the first year men undoubtedly
greatly outgained their opponents in
this session and under the agreement
seemed directly in line for the de-
cision. However, it seems that such
was not the case.
Three of the four sets of numerals
offered have already been claimed by
the medics, the junior lits, and the,
senior engineers, respectively. The
fourth and last set will be decided by
the game Saturday which is the last
contest of the season.
