As Iimpori Factor In
Badger Offensive


(Py Dan. Albreet.)
Sports Editor, The Daily Cardinal.]
MADISON, Wis., Oct. 11.--The Wis-
consin football team, back from its
26-6 victory over Kansas, today began
final preparations for its all-important
mneetiag with Michigan, Oct. 15.
The Badgers gained considerable
self-confidence Saturday from the
convincing manner in which they
riddled the Jayhawker line and, in
turn, held their own against the Jay-
hawker attack. With another week of
practice., the team should present an
even stronger front against the invad-
ing Wolverines.
Center Attack Aronmid Crofoot.
The Wisconsin attack this year is
built almost wholly about Capt. Edwin
J. "Toad" Crofoot and Gene Rose,
quarterback and running halfback, re-
spectively. Both showed to advantage
in the opening-game against Cornell
college, but their work at Knsas def-
ititely established their as key-men in
thie Badger offensive.
Crofoot is a speedy, shifty runner
Who carries the ball from. several
formations and is especially danger-
ous as a pass-receiver. The combina-
tion of Rose to Crofoot brought Iowa
and Chicago to their downfall last
season, and the Wisconsin captain ac-
counted for two touchdowns last Sat-
urday by catching passes over the
Rose is Double Threat.
Pokessing as he does the double
threat of a runne rand passer, Rose
is looked upon as the coming star of
the Wisconsin squad. He made num-
erous long gains both against Cornell
and Kansas, his most spectacular feat
to date being a 37-yard run to a touch-
down last Saturday.
Although Rose and Crofoot domin-
ate the Wisconsin backfield, numerous
other men are fighting earnestly for
positions in the same lineup. Lewis
Smith and Harold Rebholz stand as
the best candidates for fullback.
Which is the better must still be de-
Many Backfield Aspirants
Fighting for the other halfback post
are Harry Kyr, Joe Kresky, Pat Mo-
hardt, Bo Cuisinier, and "Babe" Wei-
gent. All of these particulary Kresky
and Cuisinier, possess .good points.1
The one department that has wor-
ried Wisconsin most this season has
to do with punting. Crofoot and Reb-
Sholz. have been doing heavy duty as'
kickers, but neither appears able to
match the punting sill of Louis Gil-
bert, Michigan halfback.

Thirty odd Wolverines, accompanied

night on their initial road trip of the

Secret drill was again the order
yesterday with the team divided ac-

its defense. Later in the afternoon
the team worked on the offense with

Auto Race When Burning Car
Sets Track Afire
(By Associated Press)
N. H., Oct. 12-The 200 mile Columbus
day sweepstake automobile race here
was called off today when Harry
Hartz's machine blew a tire on 1 he
51st lap, rolled over five times and
caught fire, and set the board track
blazing in four places directly in front
of the grandstand.
While uit mechanics and track fire
apparatus subdued the flames the
other races were flagged off the
track as the referee called off the
race. Hartz was taken to the field
hospital with a split head and broken
leg while race officialsasmapped out
a program for the rest of the day.
The accident occurred when Hartz
attempted to pass Frank Lockhart,
who was leading, by a terrific dash
high along the upper edge of the
track. The machine reeled out of
chntrol as the tire went, crashed to
the dirt at the infield rail, and bounc-
ed back to the track.
Hartz was thrown clear of the blaz-
ing wreckage as the machine began a
series of cartwheels.
Hartz is prominent in automobile
racing circles, having been an annual
participant in the 500 mile Memorial
Day classic at Indianapolis. He also
has taken part in many other races
here and abroad.
