By Norman E. Brown
In selecting my mythical team from
the Western Conference teams I am
inclined to place "Red" Grange at
quarterback, regardless of the re-
versal of opinion regarding Grange
suffered by several leading college
football officials after he decided to
"cash in."
Since early in the fall of 1923, the
question as to whether or not Grange
would be a member of the mythical
Big Ten team of this season hinged
only upon whether he still retained
his health and a passable average in
his studies.
He was a fairly good specimen
physically wheiX he wound up his
career and if he didn't absorb quite
as much knowledge in the class room
as h'e should have he always has the
old ice wagon at Wheaton.
There being only one "Red" Grange
this season it becomes a more diffi-
cult problem, however, to find the 10
other men deserving of the honor of
playing on this team that never will
get together.
Were "Red" Grange to be excludedl
from consideration, just to make thel
discussion interesting, I would offer
Friedman, of Michigan, and Salmi, of
Indiana, as the favored ones for the
field general's berth. I see no reason,
however, why Friedman should not
win the honor next year-his last.
.iBrlttia Great In Int~rferencee
The halfback posts invite discussion.
I have the utmost respect for Earl
Britton's work as a backfield man. He
is a versatile player and one of the!
best men on providing interference
for the runner that I have seen in
Britton is also a good kicker.
Kutsch, however, excels Britton a bit,1
I believe in open field play. Britton'sJ
value in interference cannot discount
Kutsch's forward passing ability, his
general work in line plunging and his
dashing 'style in the open field.
Ralph Baker, of Northwestern,
learned football with Grange-and'
knows his stuff. He is the best half-
back in the Conference, and has thel
same fearlessness in running through
a broken field that Grange has-but
is not quite so elusive, however.
Molenda, of Michigan, appealed to
me the first time I saw him as the
greatest fullback in the west at least.
His line plunging is beautiful, but only
a bit more brilliant than his short end
dashes. Joesting,ofaMinnesota, ap- I
peared set to challenge Molenda's
claims to fame early in the season,
but Molenda's superiority was plain
when the two met in the-closing game;
of the season.

Norman E. Brown places four Wol-
verines on his first all-Conference
team, Oosterbaan, Edwards, Brown,
and Molenda, and recognizes Fried-
man, Hawkins, and Flora by consider-
ing them for other teams.
Brown is one of the few critics who'
does not place Benny Friedman on his;
first team probably because he didj
not see him in his biggest game, al-
though he was impressed by the play
of other Maize and Blue men, putting}
four on his first team, two more than
any other school.
Bob Brown is placed at center in-
stead of Lowry of Northwestern; a
decision which every Maize and Blue I
student will agree with as well as
most sport writers.
Brown places three sophomores on
the first team; Oosterbaan and Mo-
lenda of Michigan, and Kutsch of
Iowa, and it will be interesting to!
watch the careers of these players
next season.
Brown's selection will be criticized
along with that of other critics who
placed Grange at quarterback, be-
cause of the work of the redhead at
that position is not nearly as signifi-
cant as his work at halfback.
Two of. the Michigan men placed
on the first team have two more sea-
sons to play, and it is the hope of

Wolverine fans that next year they
will both make bids for national fame.

One of the hardest tasks was the
selection of the tackles. For none C

Edwards, however, has the call. He -
