"The Play's the Thing"
"As Shakespeare said, 'The play's
the thing.' There is a greater de-
mand for good plays today than ever
before. It is true that more plays
have been brought out in New York
in the past few years than it was
thought safe a number of years ago.
It is also a known fact that the
greater majority of these plays were
run into the storehouse after a very
brief life on Broadway. The produc-
ers are constantly crying, 'Give us
more good plays that will stand the
test of time.'

failure to ,kick the goal after the
sole Michigan touchdown cost Mich-
igan a tie.
The Illini outplayed the Yost men
throughout the game, particularly on
the offensive. Their touchdown came

down the field ending with a pretty
forward pass, Walquist to Carney foi
Jack Dunn was the Wolverine hero
of the contest. Intercepting a pass o
his own 25-yard line, the little quar

Michigan's only other chance for
touchdown was prevented by the
tripping of Johnny Perrin by an Illi-
nois man when, he was well on hii
way to the goal. Although the 11
lini were penalized 15 yards Michi
gan was unable to carry the bal
further. Two attempts to score
from the field were niade by the
Wolverines, both from the 50-yard
line, Dunn missing a drop kick,' by a
small margin, and Steketee faillin
on a place kick.
The injury of Tad Wieman in thi
first quarter weakened the Michigal
line considerably, while the inability
to put Steketee in for the whole
game slowed down the offense. Fo
the most part the Yostmen played
straight football, while the oppa
nents opened up a variety of passe
and trick formations.
Despite the fact that Hellstrom
outpunted Jack Dunn consistently th

keep the Indians at bay. During th
second half Michigan's kiicking wa
