These Stars Bear Brunt of Wolverines' Powerful Attack

DOWN PURDUE, s35-.2f
Michigan's well-balanced gross-
country squad decisively defeated
Coach E E. O'Connor's Purdue har-
riers yesterday by a score of 35 to 20
over .the Varsity four and two-tenths
miles course.
Individual honors fell to Captain
Little, of Purdue, fourth, place win-
ner in the national intercollegiate mile'
last year. Little ran a heady race
throughout the whole distance,allow-
ing Iskendarian, Michigan, to set the
fast pace over the first mile, then
matching strides with Iskendarian and
Captain Briggs for the remainder of
the distance, and finally taking advan-
tage of the long descending hill at the
ijnish to obtain a brilliant victory by
more than 65 yards, over Briggs.
The time for the long grind wasj
good, considering the extremely cold
weather and high wind. Little was
clocked in 23:16, seven seconds bet-
ter than Briggs' time for the distance.
Iskendarian, who had set the pace for
most of the trip, faded at the finish
and finished in a dead heat with La--

mont, also of Michigan, for seventh!
p tlace. lmsr h, trUf
O n the home stretch, a trio of Wol-


vernes advanced to tb e front andy
passed the tiring runners to finish
third, fourth, and fifth. These' m1en
were Wuerfel, Monroe, and Hornberg-
er. Wuerfel maintained his position
for the major portion (i the route;I
Monroe was running strongly and was
fresh at the finish; and Hornberger
seemed content with his position and
did not exert himself:
These men were the only one~s to
gain official recognition in the Wol-
verine scoring, but another Farrell
man placed in the general lineup of
his teammates. Hill, who finished
eighth, ahead of every member of the
B~oilermaker squad except the leader,
was automatically stricken out in the(
official count. According to the sys-1
tem, only the best five of each team
are reckoned.
IOn this basis, Purdue is ranked one
for first place, and Winkle, eighth, is
ioved up to seventh' place, Teney,
tenth, is given eighth, v aguer, twelfth,
is given ninth, and Curtis, thirteenth,
is given tenth.
Michigan made two first downs in
the third period while Illinois made

retaining the Big Ten fbotball title b y winning the first two contests on t he 1926 schedule.
In addition to personally account ing for seven of his team's 13 points, Benny Friedman, Michigan's bril-
liant captain, directed the Wolverine's play with rare judgment. His accu rate toe sent perfect place kicks be-
tween the uprights from the 18 and 30 yard lines. \
Oosterbaan and Flora, Michigan's powerful flankers, repeatedly turned back the fleet Illini backs before
they could make impressive gains. O osterbaan continued to run true to All -American form by figuring promin-
ently in Michigan's foreward passing attack in the second period of the ga me.
Molenda, the "ploughboy" of the Y ost team, crashed through the Illini forward will for Michigan's single
touchdown. "Bo" played a strong def ensive game and often stopped the O range and Blue backs after they had
broken through the Wolverine line. He also played an important part in the passing attack of his team.
Baer and Lovette were the outsta nding men on the Michigan line. Th e former turned in the best game of
his career as a Wolverine player. Lo vette, besides being a tower of stren gtl on his side of the line, intercepted
an Illini pass deep in the visitor's ter ritory that resulted in a Michigan tou chdown.
Rich,- starting his second confer ence game, lroved hinself a valuab le ground-gainer, by crashing through
the Illinois line for several good gains during the first half.
