fullback attracted such nation-wide
attention that he was placed upon
Walter Camp's All-American eleven.
He was ineligible for the 1919 team,
but was back in togs in 1920, from
which time he has been a shining light'
on the gridiron. His sweeping end

Wilson a Great Worker
"Gob" Wilson, a guard about whom
little is said 'but one who does much,
will also end his football career this
afternoon. "Gob" came from Grand
Rapids Central in 1918 and made his
A.M.AI on the S. A. T. C. team. Since
that date he has been one of the de-l
pendable regulars on the three
teams following. Michigan loses a
hard fighter in "Gob" Wilson.
Dean Has Master Toe
With Clarke Dean the sextette is
complete. Although Dean has not
played regularly, his kicking ability

With a record of six games behind
them, three resulting in victory and
three in defeat, the University of Min-
nesota eleven faces Michigan on Fer-
ry field this afternoon. The trio of
teams which the Gophers have defeat-
ed are all known to be of comparative-
ly little ability, while the aggrega-
tions which have conquered the Norse-
men are three of the most powerful
in the Big Ten.
Minnesota opened her season at
Minneapolis with the University of
North Dakota furnishing the opposi-
tion. The Gophers had little difficul-
ty in winning by a 19 to 0 count. The
following' week Dr. Williams took his
men to Evanston, where Northwest-
ern was trampled underfoot by the
score of 28 to 0.
Gophers Bow to Ohio
Then came the big upset. Heavy
and powerful, the Gophers journeyed
to Columbus to do battle with the sup-
posedly weak eleven of Ohio State
which, but a few days before, had
fallen before the concentrated attack
of Oberlin college. Minnesota was
figured to win by a comfortable score.
Practically every well known critic
' had predicted a victory for the Gop-
hers, while none gave Ohio State a.
chance. The critics, however, were
dumbfounded. The Buckeye machine.
travelling at a terrific speed, crushed
the aspirations of Minnesota in the
first half and in the second proceed-
ed to smash to the tiniest atoms every
remaining particle of hope, winning
27 to 0 and creating the sensation of
the day in Conference football.
Defeat Indiana
The spirit of Minnesota, however,
cannot be crushed and, the following
Saturday, despite 'the fact that her
eleven was believed beaten by Indiana
before the game commenced, she play-
ed fighting football and downed the
Hoosiers 6 to 0. Seven days later
the great Cardinal eleven of Wisconsin
took a jaunt to Minneapolis and ran
rings around Williams' men, rolling
up score after score before the Gop-
hers realized what was happening,
too late to prevent the Badgers from
totaling 35 and keeping their oppon-
ents well away from their goal.
A week later Iowa added insult to
injury by handing out the worst de-
feat ever administered to a Minne-
sota team-41 to 7 was the final score,
with the Hawkeyes excelling in every
department of the game.
Last Game for Both Teams
Today, after two weeks rest, the
Gophers swing into action against the
Wolverines in the last game on the
schedules of both teans. In review-
ing the Minnesota season, however, it
must be noted that the Gophers have
been seriously handicapped ever since
the opening of the year by injuries
comparable only to those suffered by
the eleven which opposes them today
In the Northwestern game, Arnold
Oss, the peerless Gopher half back,
was so seriously injured that he has
been unable to compete since, and will
not be able to play in today's contest.
The loss of Oss has been a great blow
to the Gopher machine, as the famed
halfback has always been one of the
greatest in collegiate football.
Johnson at right tackle will get into
play this afternoon for the first time
since the game with Ohio in which
he was seriously injured. Johns is
sure to find a foeman worthy of his
steel in the big Gopher tackle. Mc-
Creery, half, is another Minnesota star
who has been out of the game on ac-

count of injuries, but he is in fine
fettle today and the Gopher adher-
ents are looking for big things from
him. Injuries to this trio, and to
several others, have been, in part re-
sponsible for Minnesota's rather poor
showing to date, but all, with the ex-
ception of Oss, are back in the lineup,
ready to put up the greatest game of
the Gopher season.
Shift is Now Working
One other reason for the disap-
pointing showing of the Minnesota
aggregation is the fact that, until the
past week, the famous Minnesota shift
has had trouble getting into action.
This has been noticeably true in past
years, the Gophers always playing at
their best in the concluding game of
the season. Because Michigan has us-
ually closed the Gopher schedule, and
because the Wolverines have always
been a much beloved enemy, the 40,000
spectators who crowd Ferry field thisj
afternoon can look for a real battle.

feat at the hands of the Gophers this
afternoon, for everydWolverine sup-
porter anxiously and optimistically
looks forward to a grand triumph. Ir-
retrievable in nature, this loss is fol-
lowed by much sincere regret.To be
more explicit, Michigan loses the in-3
valuable services of six of her might,
iest gridiron warriors this year. Two
of them, due to injuries previously
sustained, have already played their
last football game for their Alma'
Dunne, Vick, Steketee, Usher, Wil-
son, and Dean, a sextet of stars, are
the men who will graduate from the
ranks representative of participation
on the gridiron. Michigan men and
women can but pay their respects and1
show their earnest appreciation for
what these red-blooded, ever-loyal
men have contributed towards the ath-
letic glory of the Maize and Blue.
Duke Dunne Through
"Duke" Dunne, that plucky Wolver-
ine captain, is one of the aforemen-I
tioned two men who has played his
last football game for Michigan.
"Duke" has been a member of four
gridiron teams at Michigan, having!
begun his career here on the unde-
feated S. A. T. C. eleven. That year
and the year following he cavorted
around at end and attracted considera-
ble notice at that position. However,
last year, line material being scarce,
he gladly sacrificed personal glory for
team glory and shifted over to a guard
position, where he has since been
seen. "Duke" is a gritty fighter and
an ideal leader. His absence will leave
a large gap to be filled on the team
next year. Although "Duke's" foot-
ball career is at an end, his law stud-'
ies will keep him on the campus for
a year or so longer.
Vick Should Be All-American
Ernie Vick, Michigan's ever depend-
able center, will pivot for the Wol-1

offense on the squad, but aside from
that year has been seen at center..
Ernie is noted for his wonderful
manner of sensing opposing plays and
has been a fiend at breaking them
up. This year his playing has been
more spectacularsthan ever and it
would not be surprising to find him!'
