Illini Saturday. From start to finish
it was a team proposition with speedy
backs and a fast, hard charging line
which Illinois supporters call the best
in the Big Ten.
Stars were hard to pick out on the
lini team. All of the linemen, prob-
ably 20 in number, appeared to ad-
vantage most of the time while the
entire backfield went together in run-
ning plays, the ball carrier only be-
ing a part of the thrust. The India*
backs displayed unusual formations
and always had one man in motion
when the ball was snapped. Then they
broke fast. T'he wondereof it all was
that Capt. Oosterbaan stopped the Illi-
ni thrusts at his end with any regular-
ity with the perfect interference
The play for the first touchdown was
as fast as this writer has ever seen.

an informal gymnastic team has been
organized and is preparing for its
first exhibition of the year which is
scheduled to take place Nov. 17 at
Battle Creek.
This season marks the first attemp
within the past four or five years to
revive gymnastics as a -sport in the
university. The informal team is con-
templating a series of exhibitions in
their effort to obtain recognition for
the sport. Practically every other
Conference school recognizes this
sport and sends teams to compete
in the regular Big Ten meet which is
held annually.
At present the team numbers more
than 20 candidates including a num-
ber of experienced performers as well
as several promising freshmen. At
the beginning of the season Bill Pal-
mer, '29, was elected captain of the
team. t

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Oct. 30--, The
meeting between Purdue and North-
western in football, in the Ross-Ade
stadium next Saturday afternoon will
be toe fifteenth between the two uni-
v'ersities since 1895. Two victories
by the Purple in the last two years
have given that team the edge in
games won during the series, eight
to six. No tie games have ever been
pl ayed.
Purdue's most decided victory ovei
the Evanston eleven came in 1916.
when the Purple was turned back,
38 to 6, while a 29 to 0 game in 1891
