Biggest Independent Game In State Nov. 11 Staleys Training Long Hours Preparing for Tay-lorville Team; Will Be Big Day in Christian County. eye ON ny on ny FLW u V ' '- if When Staley's meet Taylorvllle next Tuesday football fand of Central Illinois will see one of the grgat-t gridiron contests ever put on in this part of the country. The teams re both putting In extra hours this week preparing for the btir fray, which is eeedulefl to be the chief attraction of the homecoming entertainment and celebrations in Taylor-vllls Armistice Day. Taylorvllle "LondlnK I'p" Taylorvllle Is "loading-up" for the SUley aggregation, according to latest reports from Taylorvllle sporting circles. It is rumored that several of the players who have been playing college football will be back t. play with their old team mated. It is a known fact that Taylorvllle is one of the strongest independent teams In the state and if Staley's hope to win the game the locals must play an entirely different class of football than they showed last Sunday against Champaign. In xhe first place, the starchwork-ers must go into the game with a full realization that they must play their best from the start if they even hop to break even in the game. If the locals do this and get any kind of breaks at all in the "luck" they stand good chance of winning, but the score will be a close one nevertheless. Staley's Wnt improve their style of playing in the game with the Christian county stars or they will awaken at the end to see a lop sided score staring them in the face and the big side of the score will be against them. It is up to the team to get busy and get some purfch 'n thair playing. Slant Show More Pep "Pep" was noticeable for its absence in the game with the twin-city team last Sunday. The Champaign team consisted of a bunch of players who had not practised together more than once or twice and if they had shown much team work In the first naif, Staleys would have suffered a defeat. With the Taylorvllle squad, the locals face an entirely different proposition. The members of that team have played together throughout the season and there are some of the players who have been with the championship teams of other seasons. They are seasoned players and under the direction of Conch Hoover, have worked into a machine that will be hard to stop. Hoover is considered as one of the hardest-driving coaches in the state and is credited with turning out the former crack teams from Taylorville by his ability to get the players to work together and get into the game from the start for the purpose of winning. Each afternoon this week sees the Staley team on the field in the hardest workouts of the season. Coach Brannan was disgusted with the showing made by the team against Champaign and is making the team A DECATUR II i 1 I sweat as a result. Scrimmage and signal practise is being doled out to the players in a heart-breaking manner and If Staley's do nothing else they will go into the game with hardened muscles next Tuesday. Taking All Playera Capt. U'asem will take down his entire list of piayers and there will be good men sitting on the bench to take the place of any who may be injured during the battle. Veech. Lanum and Thrift will start the game in tl e backfield. Charlie Dressen will be in his old position at quarter and will be replaced by lire-count if occasion arises. Cooper and Capt. W.isem will play the wing positions. Jack Mintun will fill the pivot position and it is likely that his toe will be called Into use many times during the game! Crisp, Haltorman, May Koehler, Moffett, Krlgbaum. and Chase will be in line for the tackle and guard positions and it will tax their combined strength to withstand the onslaught of the fast and heavy Taylorville backfield. All these men are fighting hard for the chance to get into tne Taylorville game and the selection will be made as to which of them enters the game on their showing within the next few days. . unit Tor Special Local football enthusiasts are taking a great deal f interest in the game and it. is thought that there will be over 600 go down on the special train to witness the contest. It is planned that the train Khali leave Decatur about 12:30 o'clock. Those wishing to go on the special should call Fred Wasem so that he can make ample arrangements to accommodate everyone. Many of the fiepartments of the Staley plant will be closed for the day to give the employes a chance to go down. Hoover Prepares Taylorville Team I TAYLORVILLE, Nov. 8. Coach Grover Hoover began business Tuesday night in the preparation of the local Independent team for its game I with Staley's of Decatur here Armis- tlce day. It will be the task of the Decatur i team to atop the locals with a bril-! Uant set of new. plays. The local i coach will also use a new set of signals. vh drill TiiOFdnv evenine was the bnst the team has had all Masnn. anri the pepper that featured the Carlin- j ville team was present for the first time since that game. Harry Bangert is being drilled at halfback, the position he held in high school, and It may be that Hoover will turn the quarterback. Job over to Harry Clark and Cy Jones in order to use Bangert in the back field. Stop Off Tackle Drives. Some time is being spent with a defense to stop the off tackle drives ol half-backs Latham and Veach of the Decatur team, and a new formation to stop the place kicks of Jack Mintun was also introduced. Nothing is being left undone to keep the local goal line a row of goose eggs even if Mintun is one of the best kickers in the state. Charlie Dressen, the quarterback who was one of the tough nuts the locals had to solve when he played here with the Decatur Indians in 1915 and 3916 is not expected to cause as much trouble as before on account of his added pounds. As a youngster Charlie was a peach of an open field runner, but this year he seems to be bothered as Noah Jones was In the last Moline game In which he played after six months in the army, and during which time he developed quite a "bay window." j The grandstand seats for the Armistice game are more than half gone and the tickets, it is said, will be gone before Sunday.

MILLIKIN MEN GET WORKOUT Coach Wann Sends Them Through Stiff Scrimmage Wednesday ILLINI READY FOR GOPHERS Coach Zuppke's Eleven Good Shape Following Maroon Battle in (Special to The Herald) URBANA, Nov. 6. Playing with renewed vigor since their victory over the Staggmen last Saturday, the Illinois Varsity football team has begun another strenuous week of practice to get in shape for the game scheduled with Minnesota next Saturday on the rival field. Their were no serious injuries apparent after the hard game of last week and it is believed that the team will be ready for the Gophers showing the strongest lineup that It has had all year. Applegran is the only man on the team who suffered at all from the Maroons. The husky guard crushed his foot to some extent during the combat, but he will be back in lineup before Saturday pointment as far as a test game was concerned. The Maroons failed to show any high class football and the Indians had things much their own way throughout the game. The Illinois grid men fear the Minnesota eleven, however, and will not let down in their practice all week. Team Leaves Thuradny Zuppke will lead a delegation of 2a men to the Gopher stronghold Thurs day morning. The team will spend Thursday afternoon in Chicago with a scrimmage billed for that time in the 'White Sox park. The eleven will arrive at -Minneapolis Friday morning. Saturday will be Homecoming day for all Minnesota graduates and a capacity crowd is expected in the bleachers at Northrop Field. This will make the third time this year that the Illini have been one of the headllners at a Homecoming game. A number of rooter will accompany the team to the foreign field while the bulk of the students will hear the reports of the battle on Illinois Field where a special wire will flash the news, play by play. de-the PEORIA, Nov. 5.

With Leo Johnson and Ward back in the line-up, the Blue and White regulars looked mighty good in spite of the stiff resistance the second team put up. "Sunshine" Gepford's shoulder is in better shape than It has been for several weeks an he may be counted on to perforin In his old time form Saturday. Coach Lantz of Charleston Is work ing his men hard to whip them into shaDe for the Miliikin trame. He will have as powerful team on the field Saturday to meet the Big Blue elev en as Charleston ever uaa. It is a well known fact that Charleston plays about fifty per cent better foot ball on her own field thai, she plays on foreign ground, and this fact, coupled with the fact that Charleston and Millikin are old and bitter rivals, is going to make Saturday's game as good as any in the conference this season. J55 Stodenta Gains. About 155 students have already signed up to take the trip on the through with a victory. Lineup to Stand. Zuppke's shift in the lineup for the Homecoming game was looked upon as a good move and it is probable that the eleven which started , last Saturday will be the regular team from now on. Smith and Carney at the wings are a smashing pair of end men who are especially strong on defensive work. It was their ability more than anything else which made it impossible for the Maroon backfield to make any substantial gains. At the tackles Zuppke has three good men. Ingwersen. Petty and Olander can be worked in ordr with no danger of the position being badly played at any time. At guards the Orange and Blue lias four good men now. Applegran, Leifvendahl. Leitch and Mohr are the men who are available in the middle of the line now while Ems and Shlaudeman are other possibilities. Depler has been put back in the center position with Shlaudeman ever ready to relieve him. In the backfield the little coach has j walquist. tternaman. iiaipn 1'ietcner and Howard ready for work.
