Maize and U1ue Tenn) tins Never Been
Defeated In successive Tilts
Since 119 Season
Coach Tad Wieman's Wolverines,
not only no longer unscored on but de-
feated as well, continued their eager
practice drill yesterday, striving toI
essay a comeback next Saturday, when
in accordance with a glorious tradi-
tion which has developed since 1919
and the -lean years of extra-Conference
competition they should conquer the
Chicago eleven, suddenly possessed "of
a lust for victory."
An inquiry into the records reveals
the fact that since 1919 the Maize and
Blue has never been sent down to de-
feat on successive Saturdays. In that
year Chicago, Illinois, and Minne-
sota trampled roughshod over the
Wolverines, but in the next season
both beatings were followed by deci-
sive triumphs, Tulane and Chicago be-
ing made to bow after Illinois and
Ohio had forced the Michigan eleven
to salaam on alternate week ends.
