Notre Dam And Titan Coaches Star-
red As Forward Passing Combi-
nation At South Bend School
TITANS ARE POWERFUL
(By Assciated Press)
DETROIT, Oct. 4.-The smartestj
forward passing combination ever de-
veloped by a school traditionally fam-
ou for its smart passers will be di-
vided against itself when Notre Dame
meets the University of Detroit in
their football tussle here this week
end-
Half of the combination is Knute
Rockne, right end on the '11, '12 and
'13 tams of Notre Dame, now coach of
his alma mater. The other half is
"Gus" Dorais, quarterback on the
same squads, now directing the grid-
iron destinies of the local institution.
It was this famous duo who in their
pla ing days conceived the strategic
adyantage of employing ends to carry
the1 lall as well as backs, and intro-
duced the .aerial attack that in the
opihipni of the critics has revolution-
ized the whole aspect of the game.
In collaboration with their coach,
Jes Harper, they devised the criss-
cros play that was first employed to
baffle the heavy Nebraska team The'
bal avould be snappeil to Dorais, pass-
ed to the left end as he skirted toward
right end and he in turn would pass
to Rockne, running the left wing.
Defeat Nebraska Eleven
The Cornhuskers, taken unawares
by the unorthodox system of ends in-
stead of backs carrying the ball, were
either tearing madly after one of the
backs or the end who first received
the pigskin while the carrier was in-
ev itbly given the right of way.
Bhfoye the maneuver was solved Notre
Dme was safely ahead of the Nebras-
ka eleven, who prior to the contest
had been odds on favorites.
hWiile comments of the critics were
stillat a high pitch regarding the de-
cet(ve tactics of the two, Notre Dame
-madeits appearance at West Point
aainst the highly touted Army
eleven. -
Notre Dame's light team disregard-
ed precedent entirely' and amazed the
spectators and players alike with a
spectacular aerial attack built around
its 1;all tossing combination, Dorais
and 'Rockne.
Both Succeed As Coaches
.Rockne, howev'e, cast his lot with
his alma mater and ultimately suc-
ceedWd Harper as coach there. Dorais
wu to Gonzaga on the Pacific coast
wbere he had phenomenalfsuccess
with the limited football material at
tlg small school.-Then he came to
tl e University of Detroit and under
hip guidance the. gridiron squads of
that institution are becoming a thorn
in the side of the best the nation can
produce
Notre Dame since has produced
manyr great passing combinations, in-
cluding the All-American combination
o Kiley and Anderson, i Feeney,
Brandy and Stuhldreher, but it is
d iiltfu if any have ever surpassed
Dorais and Rckne in point of
strategy.
The old teammates will " match
c9a.hing skill for the first time here
Sturday-a factor that adds zest to
the clash. The bigg'st turnout of the
season will witness the game, accord-
ing to preliminary reports. Although
the University of Detroit has several
other games which will draw thou-
seAds, the fact that Notre Dame,
Rjockne, and Dorais will be in the
limelight is expected to attract a sta-
dium full of fans.

gree of the ability of the players on
the respective squads will be brought
out in better light, is now on the dock-
et for the freshman football candi-.
dates, under the direction of Coach;
Edwin J. Mather, and the reserve grid-'
ders, supervised by Coach Ray Fisher.
It is the plan of the two mentors
to hold daily scrimmages between tlte
squads from now on to determine the
worth of the candidates under fire.
Mather's squad number over 100 men,
andi he plans to alternate his elevens
to combat the representative teams
from the Reserve ranks, which num-
bers about 40 players.
Although Coach Mather's squad is
smaller this year than in other sea-
sons, it includes several capable per-
formers, Fish, Elser Hobarg, Decker,
Cronwall, Cook, Andre, Sims, Thrush,
Auer, and Reed are numbered among
the promising linemen at this writing,
with Marshall, a fair punter, and
Thornton, heading the list of back-
field men.

Gray raced in from end and just as
Oosterbaan did at Minneapolis.
Moreover, although Minnesota made
19 first downs as against three for
Michigan, the Gophers did not look

neither did Michigan on the offense

that is notthe point that Walter Eck-
