Harvard will go into its second struggle with Maine, its opponent at Cambridge. Those games are merely feeling out affairs, for the most part and probably will amount to just that, but football has proven Itself to be so uncertain in the past that It will behoove the public to refrain from crowning any team a champion until these earlier games have been disposed of. Center College, the dynamite stick of th last season, will have thing tougher this year, without doubt, for there will be plenty of preparations for the cloven that was unbeatable a year ago. Likewise thwre will be more digging of a mountainous kind at Center Itself, for the little college will send its famous team east this year to play the haughty Harvard combination at Cambridge.

Ohio State plays Wesleyan, Oberlin, Puidue, Wisconsin. Chicago, Michigan and Illinois in the order named. Not much chance bere for, taking it easy, aave for the fact that twd weeks Intervene between the Michigan and Illinois game. Illinois, conference champions, has even a harder route to travel. Commencing October 9 with Drake, the Illlnt meet Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Chicago, Wisconsin and Ohio on sue-; cessive Saturdays. This team won the conference championship In 1919$ maluly by virtue of its heavy schedule, for, although the race was cloae.S the Champaign bunch gained undisputed honors by tackling and beat-i In; almost every contender ( Michigan has abnut the same sort of goiug as Ohio State, wltk games against Case, Michigan Aggies, Illinois, Tulane, Ohio State. Chicago and Minnesota. The Tulane jaaie may or may not , b a breathing, spell. Tbe Southerners have developed some fierce teams In tbe last few years. Imagine some conference team scheduling Georgia Tech two or three year ago for a practice game. ' In tbe east almost every big college haa made its practice games - as light as possible. Harvard has scheduled Center cellege, which game Takes rank as one of the most Interesting In tbe country, but aside from that the Crimson will talus, it easy nntil the -last-three weeks of the season, when the traditional Prlnceton-Brown-Yale campaign will be fought. Cornell has an exceptionally easy schedule, unless some dark horse like Columbia, Colgate or Rutgers should again spring a high-class team. The usual comparison between tbe eastern and western college teams ha been that the west may perhaps develop as many outstanding stars, or even as good first string men, but that tbelr substitute are fewer and of poorer class than In the east, where so many boys learn the college game In prep schools. If this be correct, it Is difficult to understsnd why eastern elevens do not give these many star a chance to show, by playing more real games during tbe season. THREE GREATEST AMATEUR GOLFERS IN UNITED STATES. s 7- Chick of Chicago, Francis Ouimet, of Boston, and Bobby Jones, of Atlanta, are the three greatest, amateur golfers in America," if not in the world. These three players battled to the finish for the championship, Evans being the winner over Ouimet in the final match.
