Wisconsin Football Eleven Makes Good in Its Deter li'inntion to Close Season With-a Redemption Indians' rJayls Mueli Faster llian in Struggle Against the Minnesota Football Team One Week Ago. for Previous CAPRON'S ACCURATE KICKING SAVES MINNESOTA FROM DEFEAT SWEEP STAGG'S MEN OFF THEIR FEET WITH SCORE OF 18 TO 4 OUTCLASSED gat Ms flays off for nice gains, but usually the man with the ball was com pletely burled by tho rush of the Carlisle forwards "before he had a change to get uudef way. These Carlisle linemen charged through with a precision and ttrocity rarely seen on a Western gridiron and play after play planned by Utagc went for a loss of.

several yards behind tho line. Steffen could not get many of his attempted passes because of this charging and the clever quarterback was often forced to attempt end runs when the pass had bee it planned. STEFFEN A CLEVER DODGER. Steffen furniuhed the one bright spot In tho Chicago play and this quarterback demonstrated that he lg one of the very cleverest dodgers and runners the Weat has produced. In spite of the fierce tackling of the Indian ends in the early part of tho game hn never seemed to tlra and in the secoud hnlf brought the Rtands to a rise several times by brilliant runs through half of tho Car-Hale team.

He returned numerous punts from well down In his own territory unaided by hardly any Interference and somo of the best Indian taeklers mlBaed htm on what looked llko cinches. Those runs came seldom and ere in, Chicago territory, but they gave tho Maroon rooters some cause for cheering snd this turned to Joy unalloyed when he finally got off a drop kick from the 85 yard line. It Steffen feot a little start he.juado pretty good returns but usually the Indians wore on top of hint helora he could gt-t irp speed. Not only the ends hut the tackles, and octaHloually the luUlan e.enter were down to head him off and the Chicago field generally was usually burled under such a writhing mens of Indian imisrle that ho had no opportunity of putting his team in tho game. Once or twice I'age and Steffon got oft long passes, but the.

Indians' defense was adequate to all the emergencies which the new style of play put upon it. If a Chicago man did receive tho ball he was tackled in bis tracks, while many times the Indians got the passes for short returns up tho field. While both teams used 'ho now passes as often as possible old style football had an Inning onee In a while and the Indians excelled hero, too, smarting under the criticisms of Couch Warner after the Minnesota contest. Houser played a wonderfully active game and the sturdy Carlisle fullback plowed through Chicago's line for gain alter gain. PASSES BALL WITH PRECISION.

Houser also passed the ball with precision, returned well from punts for several long while his plana kicks gavo the Indians 12 of their 18 points. In linn play Carlisle showed great superiority over Chicago for tho Maroon forwards often yielded to the crushing attack which Houser and Payne sent against It, TIvj' Indians varied their attacks so nicely utter the first few moments ot play that' Chloagifs second line ot defense was often out of position, and the Indians seemed to know where the gains would go. Balenti, asoond substitute ot the Carlisle team, was chosen to pilot the Inlians and hs ran the eleven with rare Judgment. From whet appeared like a forward pass formation thin player ran the ball around the ends ftiid with almost, the whole Carlisle for lutorfort-nee made many good gains. These plays were directed at Page't end and although this Maroon did not shirk In the least he wae simply OF FORM Low Scores.

Minnesota's inability to either solve or play new football formations may be assigned at the cause ot ier defeat. Even theu Wisconsin, outplayed tho Gophers eu straight football.

lly predictions ot tho game were true. It it had not been for Capron and had Wlecousln been successful in blocking his kicks, it would have been our gam. WiKconalu comes back to her rightful place in Western football aa a result ot today's contost." Dr. Hutchins was elated. "Wisconsin played wonderful football agvlV the Gophers," he I said.

Bchuknecht la a wonderful line lilunger and Capron waved tho day for the Gophers." Captain Mussmer said: "I don't care to comment very niivrh on the game except to voice the general satisfaction at onr showing.

Minnesota never quit fighting and Wisconsin did well to hold them a well as they did. 1 think the Gophers were outplayed and the game is a virtu al vacuiry wr Wisconsin.

COACH BtRRIEll PLACED XNDER A BREST, BIT THREATS TO END AMB RESULTS IN RELEASE. ST. CLOUD, Nov. 24. Speclal.) In a game which was marked with a free-for-all fight between the police, the South High school football players of Minneapolis and several hundred people.

St. Cloud defeated South Slda yesterday by a score of 6 te 0. The trouble took place at tho beginning of tbe sacond half. The referee called one of the visitors for slugging and was about to give a penalty when objections were (alsed. Coach Burner was on toe field and was closely followed by an officer.

A wrangle occurred and the eop threatened to arroBt the whole bunch it they did not get down to football. Coach Burrler objected to the presence ot the policeman, and an argument was begun. The coach was finally put under arrest, and Officer Miller attempted to pull him from tho field. Tho South Side players came to his rescue and Jumped on the officer. A billy club was pulled and several people were struck.

By this time several hundred people had gathered around the scrap?) and It was with difficulty that the officer quieted matters. After a 15-miuute wrangle, during which about a dozen flrft Oghts were pulled oft between the South Bide rooters and the local men, the game waa resumed. Shortly after a report went the rounds thst Burrtor would be arrested at the end ot the game. Burrler at once called his men off tbe field and stated that If an r.rrest was to be raado his team would quit. Officer Miller finally consented to let the man go if he would apologize.

This was done and the game wae reeumed. Barring this incident the game went off without another wrangle. The South Side players have no kick to make at all on the treatment received by the officials or the members of the High school, and simply blame the policeman. The game Itself was one ot the pooreKt contests ever pulled oft on the local field. St.

Cloud outclassed the visitor at every stage of the game. Only once during the pania was St. Cloud's goal In dauijcr and this was In the laat half. In three downs the visitors gained but two yards and lost the hall. St.

Cloud's gains were mostly on fake plays and forward passes. Ot 13 forward passes tried by tho locals, 11 were successful, and netted from 10 to 80 yards. The visitors executed tour forward pases out ot 10 trial. On line straight football they were helpless and made first down only three tlma during the game. St.

Cloud'e only touchdown cam in the latter part of tlin Orst half. Sliroeder took the hall to tlie visitors' 20-ysrd line on a forward pat's. On the next play Stov-pimon went around the cud for a touchdown. Tim name ended with the ball on Smith Sldo's 10-yard line and in 8t. Cloud'e possession.

(Special.) Minnesota and' Wisconsin, ilffbUng Uio hardest tooUball ganie that has boeu seen on Camp Randall, battled to a tie ot 17 to 17. Wisconsin, with a reversal of form she bad shown before during the season, swept tho Minnesota defense off its fuel during ths II ret portion of the playing with a stubborn defense, born of a remarkable determination to clone the sea-and with a stubborn defense, born ot a re-loss to others and low scores over Iowa and Purdue, stopped tbe Gophers in the second half and held the score at a lie. J1G1IT AGAIXST ODDS. To the individual Minnesota men must be given the credit for putting up a remarkable game against heavy odd. With the Badgws' touchdowns chalked up against them in the first naif they canio back at the Wisconsin line wLth such doterminatlon in the second part that it seemed almost linpossibUj to prevent thorn from inuring.

Captain, gchultiieuht played the last game ot his Life for Minnesota and he was the great gound gainer of the day. His plunges through center equaled the work ot any player on the western gridiron. The 13 men who were in the game deserve the highest praise for their plarln and ttrtl-Uatiit work, f'APROX'H K1CKTVO Bl AI I. Copron, with bis accurate foot, apd Minnesota from a defeat three- times whe it bis own efforts and thone of his teammates had forced the bull to within striking distance of the Badger goal but could not gnlir another Inch agalnHt the Badger defense, whtoh was stiffend when the final test oam. Capron booted the ball with uuerrlng aim over the crossbar.

His second goal from the field was tha longest he has made this season, his foot being an the Wlecoustn 45-yard Hue when be dropped the ball. That made the kick one yard lougor than the snal ha kllkpil against OhlOaCO and the ball went with greater accuracy and speed than In the former gl. Wisconsin's phenomenal work was a distinct surprise even to her stsunchest supporters. Minnesota rooter woro In the city yesterday morning with plenty of money to bet at various odds of from to 1 down, but very little Badger money was In Sight Had the Wlseeaaln student body backed tbe team in the betting line aa well as it did with cheers during the game, It would nave voa a big sum from the Oopbera. OAMB OPiaii WITH RVtVt.

When Wisconsin opened the game With a rush the Badgers' supporters In the stands wore elutcd. When the home team scored the enthusisMm knew no bounds. Yet even then there was a feeling that tbe spurt was only occasional and would not last. It wae not until the three touchdowns of the Badgers bad been toored In the first half that the roetere really began te take bear and work tor tbe team. Even then the few Minnesota rooters, although the team for a long time was behind, out-rooted the thousands ot Badger yellewi.

The Badgere overthrew all prwriotr es-offpnsive and defensive end work of thr-ir strength both 03 tin? proved so nmoh better than In othor games thnt tf. appeared as though the wtly Badgers bad been holding bark ail season with the Idea ot giving- tt out here.

21. t'nder Weal coo-' ditiuns and before an audience of nearly gridiron enthusiasts, the Carlisle InduTiiH put to flight all of Chicago's hopes for an interactional football rat. ing at Marshall Held yesterday, com-lili'telr out-classing the Maroons and overwhelming them with an IS to 4 genre. Chicago's offenso would not go, while i-he Indians' were all over the field, three place kicks and a touchdown giving them their total of points. Just before tho close of the game Steffen negotiated a beautiful drop kick from his 35-yard linn nd thus saved Stagg'a champions of the Weet from a shut-out at the hands of the phenomenal Indian eleven.

Carlisle's defense was marvelous and lh speed which Chicago evidenced "tho play was of no avail. Tho Maroon bocktleld was phenomenally f.4t. while Steffen, Iddings and Page hud everything to their liking on the iry ricld but tho Indian forward and back-held men were after every play and not one Chicago play In ten went for any gains of consequence. Chicago defence was nicelv planned to meet tho Indian open attack and In the early momenta nf play the Maroons spoiled many Car-llslo attempts at passes. But tho Carlisle men soon struck their (stride and In the flMt half worked tho ball down under Chicago's goal posts, wupuib nu-er had an easy task in booting over place kicks for a total of 8 points.

OP (JISGEH. af 1ha m1 of the II was mo first half and the Chicago men had plenty of ginger when the second period started, but their speed would not bring gains, while the Indian Hue seldom wavered. Continued use of ths forward paiss by the Indians gnv them good gains at times, and Anally BalonU got off one to E. Kxemllno, wmen tue euu -rlear field from the 20-yard Hue for the only touchdown the game.

Another place kick by Houser gave Carlisle her in while -Steffen's Held goal mads the only Addition to tho score. Three times during the play Houser missed apparently easy, place kicks, while Steffon failed on two or three attempts at drops, but outBlrto of tho ono which succeeded, Chlengo did nvt come near t. score. A touchdown for the Maroons was never In sight and only a nervy defense which continued full of pepper until tno can of time kept the Indians from a bigger score. WrVD A SLIGHT HANDICAP.

A vliirht wind from the northwest prevailed and this nerhnip wave a sllKht advantage to the team backing it, although each levcn had lt fatr chanos at this point. The perfect fall day brought out probably the largest crowd which baa attended a game in the West and everyone of the 1:7.000 seat was taken, with a feir thousand people left for the standing room, flileago rooters were out In hordes and cheered their eleven throughout the puttie, while non-partlFans lent their hlhi.c tn niiinnFl nf tho fHrllKltf jiirn. for thu aftpfiiont).

Purdue lost her last game the season yesterday en Stuart field, receiving tha email end of a 17 to 0 scots at the hands of Notre The. game' waa rough 4tnd 'both sidas lost heavily on Early the second half Ryan, tho Notre Dame quarterback, was put from the1 game for por-slstent rough tactics and caused his team a penalty of 40 jar is for oue ot-tense. Notre Dame play consisted ot tad runs and forward passes, both of which the Catholics executed In great shape.

Ryan frequently tore oft runs ot 20 and 30 yards, hie interference aiwaya making a gain possible. Purdue played well in stretches, and her inconsistency lost her the game. Forsyth outpunled Captain Callicrate, but bis punts were always almost returned for 10 or 25 yards. The gold and black thereby lost in the exchange. The second touchdown In the second halt was made In a peculiar mannor.

The Purdue team wae practically replaced by substitutes, on of which waa Hut chins at quarter for Hanna. Notre Dame punted and Hutchlne who waa receiving the punt, misjudged It, thinking It was out of bounds, let it go.
