Backfield Could Not Get Started+
Slippery Field; Lucky Breaks
Give I linois Victory


(By Associated Press)
CHAMPAIGN, Nov. 7.-Out of the
mire and mud of Illinois $2,000,000
memorial stadium, Illinois arose to-
day to defeat Chicago, 13-6, while
70,000 spectators sat through a driv-
ing rain drenched to the skin to pay
tribute to 'Red Grange in one of the
most remarkable demonstrations ever
given an athlete in America. The
.spectators waited and waited in vain
for the annihilator of Pennsylvania's
championship team to cut loose just
once on the slippery muddy gridiron
and race across the chalk line to give
them the thrill they were seeking.
The galloping ghost of the Illinois
eleven was unable to break away even
once. The famous red head carried
the ball from scrimmage 17 times for
gains of 18 yards and was thrown for'
a total loss of 26. Grange's interfer-
ence today was a mess, because neith-
er Britton or Daugherty, slipping or
sliding in the mud could get started.
Grange's outstanding achievement to-
day was a 25 yard run in returning
Lamp's kickoff after Illinois' first
touchdown. Late in the third period,
with the score tied at 6-6, Rouse at-
tempted to punt. Reitsch and Kassel
blocked it. D'Ambrosio, Illinois, fell
on the ball back of the goal line and
gave Illinois her victory.
Illinois evened up the count in the
same period as a result of three fum-
bles in succession by Kerwein. On
the second fumble Kerwein lost 10
yards and Illinois took the ball on
downs to Chicago's ten yard line. Chi-
cago regained the ball on downs and

dropped the ball and kicked from

Chicago's two yard line. Britton
broke through Chicago's right guard
to tie the score.
Sloppy Gridirons
Slow Up ScoringI
In All Contests
CHICAGO, Nov. 7.-Rain or snow
swept across football fields from the
nation's capital to the western plains
today and' turned gridirons into
sloughs that disheartened even the
most valiant eleven.
Players staggered and waded
through pools of water and gumbo
that in places was six inches deep
and so sticky that few could get away
with anything that resembled a long
run. Fumbles were frequent and in
many cases meant defeat. Officials
were likewise affected, one being
forced from action. Nor were the
spectators much better off. They shiv-
ered in the blizzards and gales, and
huddled under oil cloths and slickers
from heavy downpours that in some
games continued through most of the
Wisconsin and Iowa struggled
through a snow storm at Iowa city,
the players wearing canvas gloves to
give them a grip on the ball. hg
One unidentified In the Michigan-
Northwestern game at Chicago was
literally buried in the mire of Grant
Park stadium, and had to be dug out
Before play began on many fields the
lines were not (istinguishable. The
officials were called upon many times
for measurements.
The rainfall at the Chicago-Illinois
battle was so heavy that the players
were virtually indistinguishable to
spectators, and at times the west
stand Chicago rooters could not see
their rivals in the east seats. Coupled
with the rain, which did not cease
until the third quarter, was a strong
north gale that made punters' efforts
seem puny.

Before a crowd of 15,000, Jesse

COLUMBUS, Nov. 7.-Out of a wal-

fumbles, slips, slides and splashes,j
