Taken By Death
Edgar Madsen, '27, varsity football
end, who was taken to the health ser-
vice Wednesday afternoon, died at
8:50 last night of lobar pneumonia.
His death was very unexpected as he
was admitted to the hospital with
what was believed to be a light case
of pneumonia but at 7:30 last night
his condition became critical. His
home was in Fairmont, W. Va.
"Madsen's death was notadue to
any injury received in football," said
Dr. John Sundwall of the health ser-
vice. He practiced Monday and felt
well. The first indication of his ill-
ness came Tuesday morning when hef
showed a fever, and was confined to
his home for the day."
Playing at the position of end "in
the Wisconsin and Minnesota games
he was changed to center in the last
scrimmage. Herbert Steger stated
last night that "he was the hardest
worker and one of the most conscien-
tious and best liked men on the squad.
He was always the first man on the
field in the afternoon."
Madsen was a heavyweight wrestler
-star of the freshman team last year
-and counted as the best prospect of
the wrestlers for this year. He was
a member of the track team.
He played on the Oak Park high
school football team for four years,!
being captain in his Senior year. ,or
three years he was selected as a, nmem~'
her of the mythical All-Cook County
football team and was selected as
captain for this.team in his third year.
During his high school football career
he played on the same team with
Uteritz, Steger, and against Castle of_
Illinois. The "High School World"
selected him as an all-American high
school football player.
