MEl1I()RIAL S'TADIU-M,. URBANA, Ill., Oct. 24.-Michigan
continued on her way to the Western Conference gridiron championship
by defeating Coach Bob Zuppke's Illinois eleven here this afternoon be-
fore a I-Ione-coming crowd of 67,000, people.
Despite the fact that the Illini aggregation had met defeat on two
occasions prior to today's contest, the game attracted considerable attention
due to the spectacular playing of "Red" Grange against the Wolverine
eleven last year, when the stalwart Illini leader made football history by
scoring four touchdowns in the first ten minutes of play, running for
scores the first four times he carried the lall.

URBANA, Ill., Oct. 24.-With fags
hying and bands playing, Illinois to-
(lay welcomed a crowd of 68,000, gath-
fered here from the vast area of the
middle West, to watch the teams of
Illinois and Michigan clash In what is
probably the greatest spectacle of
modern football.
Michigan's delegation alone, com-
posed of students, alumni and friends,
numbers at least 10,000,. for that is
the number sold through the Michi-
gan athletic association, athletic of-
flees here announced. Of this num-
ber, 5,000 were student tickets.
Twenty-nine special trains, and mo-
tor cars numbering into the thoip-
sands, were still pouring into this
city at noon today, countless hun-
dreds of ardent fans. From Ann Ar-
bor came two trains of 14 cars each,
bearing students, townspeople and
the Varsity band. Nineteen trains
were scheduled to leave Chicago, four
from St. Louis, and one from Kansas
