Three other conference skirmishes nre on Sftturday's program, Wisconsin opening up its Big Ten ****on against Purdue at LaFayette,—Chicago Roes to Minnesota, «nd Michigan plays at Ohio. Exhibiting its usual bruising attack but with a trifle more speed, Minnesota steamrolled Purdue to a IS to 0 defeat Saturday, and is ca- peoUd to have an easy time with Chicago, which bowed to Iowa, 13 to 0. Wisconsin showed scoring punch in trouncing Cornell College of Iowa, Saturday. 49 to 0, but whether it can gain against a heavier Purdue forward wall remains to be seen. It will be homecoming at Purdue. Ohio State, which almost put Northwestern out of the championship picture by a 10 to 0 triumph Saturday, Isn't expected to have much difficulty with Michigan. The Wolverines were weak in the line against Indiana. Iowa and its star Indiana fullback, Chief Mayns McLaln, will meet Ripon College In a non-conference game Saturday, while Northwestern will meet Kentucky at Evanston, Although defeated by the Buckeyes, the Purple showed more power than many anticipated and except for bad fumbles played their opponents even.
