Battle Brings Two of Country's Most
Powerful Elevens Together
At South Bend
(Special to The Daily)
SOUTH BEND, Nov. 4.-Two of the
most powerful teams in the country
will be pitted against each other when
Coach Knute Rockne's undefeated
'Fighting Irish' meet the invasion of
the powerful Gopher outfit headed by
its all-American fullback, Herb Joest-
ing, this afternoon at Cartier field.
Although this contest is regarded as
the most imnortant battle in the Mid-
dIle West this afternoon, it is probable
that it will be witnessed by the small-
est crowd of any dame in that sec-f
tion, because of the fact that the seat-?
ing capacity of the Notre Dame field
is only 25,000.
Coaches hold Enviable Records
Today's contest not only brings4
powerful teams together, but also two
of the foremost coaches. No mentor
in the country can boast a b:etter
record than that established by Rockne E
at Notre Dame since he assumed the
coaching duties there in 1918 and ,few
can equal the mark established by
Dr. Spears, the v'eteran Minnesota
In the five contests played this year
the Notre Dame has flashed the same
offensive power that has characterized"
Rockne machines in the past. Coe.
Detroit, Indiana, Navy, and Georgia,
Tech have all fallen before the Irish'
driving offensive by large scores.
Minnesota Loons As Threat C
Minnesota, despite a tie game with
Indiana, looms as a likely contender'
for Conference honors. The Gophers
hold decisive victories over North Da-
kota, Oklahoma A. and M., and Iowa,
besides a 13-7 win over Wisconsin.
Today's game will see the powerfult
running attack of the Northmnen pit-3
ted against the speed and passingM
ability of Rockne's charges. Notre
Dame has one of the greatest half-
backs in the country in Flannigan, ,
and a remarkable kicker and passer ,
in Johnny Niemiec, while the Minne-
sota team includes a formidable arrayt
of ball carriers in Joesting, Almquist,
Hoyde, Nydahl, and Barnhardt.
It is considered a tossup as to
whether Rockne will send his second
team against the Gophers or start his
first string warriors.

For the Illini, the game means the

athletes, fears most,-the running at-
tack created by his old master, led by
Timm, Humbert, and Stewart, or the
passing game, with Stuessy letting fly
to Timm, Grange and others.
Passes Beat Wildcats.
The Illini won the Northwestern
game with passes. But the aerial at-
tack was foiled by the alert Michigan
backs- and the Orange and Blue team
completed only two of 14. But when
the air game falls, the line crackers
and the end runners begin.
Iowa's line has looked strong this
week with Captain Nelson, Schleusner
and Yegge breaking through the
bulky freshman wall to create havoc
in the backfield. But it is the defend-
ing backs} who have yet to prove their
ability to bat down passes after their
failure to hinder the Minnesota air

Fieldinig H. Yost.
Four pictures of Michigan's "Grand
Old Man," Fielding H. Yost, whose
rivalry with Alonzo A. Stagg, veteran
Chicago grid mentor, will be resumed
today when Tad Wieman, his pupil,I
sends the Wolverine team against thel
Maroons at Stagg field.
In the upper left hand corner Yost
is shown with "Boss" Weeks, who play-
ed quarter on the 1901 Michigan
eleven, and Keene Fitzpatrick, former
Wolverine trainer. In the upper right
is a picture of the veteran coach as
he appears today. The lower left
hand picture includes Yost and Tad
Wieman, while the lower right is a

PROVIDENCE, R. I.-Brown Uni-
versity's football team will be without
the services of two Varsity linemen
for this week's game.

Having covered a three mile course
in 15:26 last Saturday, the freshmen
harriers .will endeavor to better their
time in the meet scheduled for to-
morrow morning. This will mark.,the
second run over the three mile course.
With the final run but two weeks;
off, Coach Beals' freshmen charges
show promise of developing into a
smooth working aggregation. Among
the outstanding candidates are,
Groehn, Benson, Loyd Cody, and his
brother, Nelson Cody.
PITTSBURGH-Ty Cobb will no,
'get a bid of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Alonzo A. Stagg.
Now in his 36th year as coach of the+
University of Chicago eleven, Stagg is
the dean of all American coaches in
point of service.
When Stagg took charge of.the Mar-
oons in 1891, he brought with him the
old Yale system of play and enjoyed
phenonmenal success foi' a continued
period, dominating the early North-
western and later Western Confer-
It has been a cardinal point in
Stagg's teaching not to inspire a "lust
for victory" in his players but rather
to "develop manhood."
Among the Chicago stars developed
by Stagg are Eckersall, the Thomas
brothers, McCarthy, Zorn, Pyott, Cris-
ler, Hirschberger, Catlin, McGuire, and
Michigan and Chicago last met in
1920 when Coach Yost's Wolverines
downed the Maroons by a 14-0 score.
