Only twice during the entire encounter were the Cardinals at all dangerous and both of these thrusts fizzled out against a stone wall Packer line.

MAY The jinx Thi for a MISS GILBERT, which hovers over the the grid elevens or supporters of Washington U and Missouri U. They had read of some trouble last year after the game that resuUed .n the breaking off of relations for a time being. However Saturday those not interested in either institution and who like to see trouble were justly from the results is that the conference title will not be a walkaway, for anyone and it looks as if about seven teams are in the running right now. ; Monticello leads the pack in the ; Okaw valley on performance to date. j but the Sages are sure to have plenty loi competition from Bement. Arthur | and Tuscola and perhaps others. i It seems unfortunate that Villa Grove is not in the Valley title race this season, for the Wear tribe has been going ."great guns" in games to date. Villa Grove has only one conference game listed, with Newman and probably on that account would not be considered for the conference title. Villa Grove good team comes after the school board had reconsidered its vote to discontinue football this season. Early season play has indicated Staunton, Hillsboro and Nokomis as the leaders in the South Central, and no doubt much of the remaining play will hinge on games between the three. Hillsboro plays both, but Staunton and Nokomis do not meet. Bridgeport, Marshall and Casey- continue to lead the pack in southeastern Illinois, all of them unde- disappointed" The contest although played be- Uveen two titter rivals was as clean i as a whistle and there was nothing 1 ' ' ' ' ' of home team in dedication ceremonies may swoop down upon Michigan Sat- uftiay, when Ohio state goes to christen the new Ann Arbor field.

Michigan probably will be without their best kicker, Louis Gilbert, who is also one of their best ball carriers. The Wolverines have not been beaten in the conference for nearly two years. PURPLE AFTER TITLE. Northwestern's Wildcats face Illinois Saturday. The Wildcats hope for renewal of their lease on the con. :nds largely upon this game, for their next three contests, Purdue, Indiana and Iowa, are figured to be easier to win. Illinois has yet to face a Big Ten opponent, and has shown both good and bad football so far. Purdue and Wiscnosin, each counted out of-the championship race after one defeat, clash at Madison. Against Iowa Saturday the Minnesota machine will need even more drive than . it showed against the Hoosiers, if it is : to stay in the fight for Big Ten lead- , ership. The Hawkeyes have had an ! easy fortnight since their defeat by i Ohio State, and Saturday they beat Wabash 38 to 0. Kaplan Is Ready.
