Last night the alumni held a gathering in a local hotel at which the team was praised, and plans completed for a great rooting duel with the Pittites today. The W. & J- followers were as loyal s could be. All season long they have 'had to listen to tales about the wonderful Pitt team, and to hear their own nets referred to as "under-dogs In today's game. Nevertheless, they have stood up manfully for their favorites, and were prepared today to encourage their eridders so long as a momenta Dlav should remain of the game. Pitt was not underrating its foes.

WARNER, ritt's coach My team is not in as good physical condition as it was for the Penn game. But I think-the boys will play good football, nevertheless. We are-meeting a strong foe, and my hope is that the mental attitude of the Pitt players will be such as to enable them to put forth their best efforts. The strength of the W. & J. team must not be underrated. SOL. METZGER, W. & J.'a coach My boys may hand Pitt a surprise S today. They have been specially ) trained and coached for this game, ( and are confident, even though Pitt seems to be a universal favorite. 5 My boys are in good shape physically, and are able to endure through a hard battle. CAPT. PECK, of Pitt I look for a close, hard-fought game. W. & J. always plays great football against us, and I think Pitt will play great football against W. & J. The game will be hard and clean. May the better team win. CAPT. WIMBERLY, of W. & J. We are ready. We do not fear Pitt. If we are beaten. It will only be after we have exerted every ounce of strength and energy we possess. I look for a hot battle all the way. mm TEAM By H.C. Hamilton. Cambridge, Mass!, Nov. 11.

Approximately 5,000 persons from out of town whirled into Bo3to;i today from every spot nearby and many of them from far away. It is estimated that 35.00O persons will be in the huge Harvard stadium when the referee's whistle starts the hour of . supreme struggle between the two great teams. Hotels and restarants wore jammed end packed in a way reminiscent of world's series times.

But this is at least . one time when there is very little dope to spread around. In excitement attending the flrt clash between two of the "big three," tiie football public has almost overlooked the fact that at New Haven, Vale is scheduled for another of its hard games when Brown's powerful eleven makes its appearance at the Yale bowl. Brown, 'always strong, looms this year as the one team likely to do things to Yale's great record. Dartmouth, humbled by! both Georgetown and Princeton, is scheduled against Pennsylvania, but the outcome of this contest has only minor significance. At Ithaca the bigger intersectional conflict of the year will be pulled off when Michigan meets Cornell. The New Yorkers have displayed considerable uneasiness over this conflict and. at best. Michigan is given as much chance as the eastern eleven. BOUTS TONIGHT IN GHARLEROI ARENA Fistic fans of the Monongahela valley will tonight be treated to a bout that comes near being a championship affair, inasmuch as both participants are contenders for the bantamweight title now in the possession of Kid Wil-j Hams. Dick Load man of : Homestead ana jl-ou tinger ot t imaaeipnia are the ' topnotchers who are to appear before the Charleroi A. C at Charleroi. JLoadman has to his credit a newspaper decision over the champion, while Stinger has made repeated efforts to get on with Williams for a titular match. His manager. Jack McGuigan of .Philadelphia, Insists that he will stay after the Baltimorean until his demands are acceded'to. Load man is favored by Charleroi enthusiasts. Dick appeared in the "Magic City" Just following his graduation into the professional ranks and his progress Has been watched step by step by "hundreds- of admirers-. He is known as a rusher and is at the same time a-clever and shifty boxer. Stinger,, too. can- hit. and the chances are that a real battle Is going: to be staged. In the semi-final. Knockout Brennan will meet Chick Rogers: in the second bout, Kddie Wimler goes against Mickey Hart, and in the curtain-raiser. Young Gadsky will hook up with Tommy Marmino. A Glutton for Punishment.

St- Paul, handed Jack Dillon, Indianapolis, a neat little trimming. From the very first tap of the gong until the last, Gibbons demonstrated that he was a past-master of the fade-away,- boxing. He would rush in, hand the Indianapolis bearcat a series of punches and then fade away before Dillon could get his heavy artillery into action. In the first round the men met and like a shot from the clear sky. Gib bons landed a right to face. Dillon looked surprised and started his bor ing in methods, but to no use. i-id bona" would not stay in one place long enough for the giant-killer to get a smash at him. In the second, Dillon came up looking rather dismayed. Dillon In this round tried hard to land his famous knockout blow, but Gibbons made his attempts look so foolish that even the grim Dillon was forced to smile. In the third round Dillon seemed In clined to hang on. Gibbons met the giant-killer at his own style of bor ing in. They mixed in the center of the ring. Gibbons having all the ad vantage of the in-flghting. In ihe fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth. Gibbons did all the leading. Dillon would stand in the middle of the ring and make Gibbons come to him.. At the end of the eighth Dil Ion's , face was badly puffed and Gib bons to this time had not stopped a real hard blow, all Dillon's attempts going wild. Welsh May Box Kilbane.
