A. and Maroons are scheduled to clash. The "Y" won the previous con- test between these two teams but the Maroons didn't have their best material in game. This was clearly shown in their next ap- pearance when they played the Indians last Friday, whom they would have beaten but for a phen- omenal streak of luck that favor- ed the Redskins at the last mo- ment. Tomorrow morning the Maroons- will have the same fast line-up which stacked up against the Jndians, and they have a j strong feeling of confidence in j their ability to carry off the hon- j crs. They will have to go some, however, for the "Y" too will be there with bells on and a greatly i strengthened team. The game will' j start at 10 o'clock sharp. j _________-i---------- I OVERSEAS VS S.
