Northiestern-Purdue Game Saturday
To Eliminate One Contender

CHICAGO, Nov. 2.-Purdue and
Northwestern today moved to the
center of the stage in the western con-
ference football drama, fast nearing
the last ct.
There are three other Big Ten
games titis week but, barring the
,most improbable of upsets the engage-
nent of most importance in title battle
is between Northwestern and Purdue
Michigan still is reeling from the
blow by Navy but has demonstrated
more than enough power to down Wis-
consin Saturday and not lose a swift
stride toward the championship. Il-
noia is a favorite over Chicago but
has at best an outside chance in the
race. Minnesota has lost one Big Ten
start and Iowa two.
In a way Purdue has most to gain
in Saturday's game. Once past the
Purple the Boilermakers have only
Indiana to defeat to present a flawless
season record, anI Indiana has been
vanquished thrice. Northwestern on
the other hand, must down Purdue,

CHICAGO, Nov. 2.-Notre Dame's
looming again as a National football
titlist is the occasion for a revival of
the question of Notre Dame's admis-
sion to the Big Ten.
Today it way reported that five of
the six votes necessary for the ac-
tion are assured when the faculty re-
presentatives of the Western confer-
ence meet here in executive session
Nov. 26 and 27. .
For many season, Rockne has ob-
-served all the conference rules for his
teams which can usually find Mid-
west, competition of interesting
calib only in the Big Ten.r'i
The admission of Notre Dame is
taken to carry with it the enlargement
of the conference to the Big Twelve,
the desirable even numbers being ac-
hieved by voting in of Michigan state,
which has been campaigning in the
east this fall. The readmission of
Michigan in 1917, after an eleven
years' absence, was the last change
in the historic athletic circle.
SOUTH BEND, Nov. 2.-"Knute"
Rockne was apathetic today to reports
from Chicago that Notre Dame was to
be invited to join the Big Ten athle-
"I haven't heard any Big Ten talk
around here for eight or nine years,"
said Rockne. "What's the point in
our joining the Big Ten anyway?"
Notre Dame fans opine that Rockne
has all the Big Ten games, with the
exception of Michigan, that he wants,
regardless of membership, and figure
that a membership might or might
not bring the Wolverines to amic-
able relationship with the local school.
As matters stand now the Notre
Dame schedule usually calls for two
or three Big Ten games each year,
ordinarily with the strongest conten-
ders. Michigan always has refused to
play Notre Dame, but the other nine
member's are on friendly relations
with the South Bend school.

Coach Yost held the Varsity foot-
ball practice behind closed gates yes-
terday, and announced that all ses-
sions this week would be secret. Wis-
consin always plays a great game
against Michigan and Yost intends to
be prepared for everything George
Little has to offer. Little knows every
play Michigan has used in the last
five years and isn't likely to be trick-
ed. Friedman foxed him with his
forward passing play on the first down
but it is a safe wager that it will not
After the Illinois defeat twoI
years ago, Coach Yost made a
shake-up in the team and it is
likely that he will make a few
changes after last Saturday's
game. The Michigan line played
as seven individual players against
the Navy, lacking the drive and
team work of last year's line.
Coach Wieman has a lot of good
reserve material on the bench and
can afford to make a few changes
if the regulars show any signs of
slowing up. Competition for plac-
es on the first team is too keen
for a man to hold a regular posi-
tion on his past reputation. Sid
Dewey, a 195 pound guard with4
three years of experience, is avail-
able and will undoubtedly be used
' more after his showing during the
last quarter of the Navy game.
Grinnell, who weighs over 190
pounds and who is one of the
strongest men on the' squad, has
been' getting into the game lately
and may draw a position in the
opeging lineup soon.
Squier is not troubled with his
ankle and will be ready for service
against Wisconsin. Oade, a letter man
from last year's team, is waiting for
a chance at tackle and Rose, a new
man, is also considered a good sub-
If there is any shake-up in the
backfield, the change will be at
left halfback. Gilbert Is certain
to retain his place at right half-
back, earning that right by his
brilliant punting and open field
running. Gilbert, of the zig-zag
hips, has been Michigan's only
consistent ground gainer on off
tackle plays and on 'nd runs.
Friedman will plot the team from
quarterback, but may be shifted to
halfback on the defense. The
Wolverine captain is a deadly
tackler and could be used up close
to the line to good advantage. If
Yost feels that the other backs
can catclh punts, the change is a
Molenda will stay at fullback and
do his duty behind the line. He is
listed as a fullback, but plays every-
thing from manager to guard during
the game. Left halfback has been the
floating position on the team all sea-
son and it is almost time to settle it.
Greenwald, Rich, Cook, and Babcock
have all taken a try at it, but to date,
it is always a toss up as to who will
start. Last year Weber started at
halfback against the Minnesota team,,
and may be given another chance.
Weber was used primarily to bolster
the line and did a splendid job. It is
not at all improbable to suppose that
Weber will play halfback.
