Apparently Michigan has also

more varied this year than at any,

Instability and uncertainty in the

quarterback last Saturday at ChicagoE
and played such a wonderful headya
game as field general that he would
seem to be a fixture there for the re--
mainder of the year.
As Coach Wieman said yesterday,
"Even a second guesser could not
have picked out a better play for any
stage of the game than dlid Miller.
The team was run nerfectly." All the
more credit must go to Miller since
that was the first time he had ever
played quarterback.

roons, with Leyers leading the wa3
and Rouse running over Bovard, pro
ceeded to tear through for severa'
good gains, but the Wolverines tight

The first Chicago rush ended
when McDonough was forced to
punt after the Maroons had ear-
ried the ball from the kickoff to
Michigan's 48-yard line. A few
minutes latter Chicago took the,
ball in midfield and Leyers was re-
sponsible for two first downs, one
on the Wolverine 40-yard line and
the other on the 28-yard stripe.

Wisconsin Won Last Year
About a dozen successful passes
ixecuted by Wisconsin meant the dif-
ference between defeat and victory
when Iowa played at Wisconsin's
homecoming last fall. The score was
20 to 10.
Tie llawkeyes are setting them-
selves to wind up the season in great
style against Wisconsin and North-
western. It was in 1924 that Ingwei -
sen's team rallied for the final two
games and ruined Wisconsin's home-

AnnifArbor to defeat Michigan.
