01I10 S'TADLIUM, Columbus, Nov. l9.-'Two long passes that
filtered through Ohio State's defense for touchdowns enabled the
Illini to trim the battling Buckeyes 13 to o today and collect the
Wesern Conference championship for 1927.
While a colorful homecoming day crowd of 70,000 alternately
shivered and cheered, Ohio State fought their way to at least three
good chances to score, once missing a touchdown by a foot on a
fumble. The Buckeyes, gallantly trying to regain the prestige lost
daring an errat:c season, put up a sterling battle in the first half,
but the Illini outsmarted them, playing steadier football and captaliz-
mg its best scoring opportunities with well-executed passes.
Illinois scored twice on identical plays, outguessing the Buckeyes
each time. Fred Humbert, sophomore fullback, crossed the goal line
for the first touchdown in the opening period on a 23-yard pass
from Stuessy as a climax of a 50-yard sweep down the field. The
final touchdown was carried over in the third period by Timm, half-

that ended a steady advance down

Ohio State, in its final stand, was

Only a scant foot separated the
Scarlet and Gray from tallying in the
second half when Rowan, fullback,
after a six yard thrust through cen-
ter, fumbled with the last chalk mark
within reach.
Ohio had advanced the ball 55
yards in a brilliant series of plays,
featured by a 25 yard pass from E.
B. Alber and several long passes ort
tackle by Grimm. It looked like a
certain score as Rowan dashed
through the line, but he funbled, and
Nowack, giant Illinois tackle, leaped
on the ball.
Ohio Loses On Fumble
At least five blue and gold jersied
players were on top of Rowan, but
Nowack had the pigskin when the
heap was untangled.
Ohio's best opportunity to score
filtered away with this fumble, but on
two other occasions the Scarlet and
Gray warriors passed and bucked
their way to their rival's eight-yard
line. One of these advances came in
the second period, when the Buckeyes
were making repeated holes in the
Illini defense, but it was broken up
when two of Robin Bell's passes were
knocked down across the goal line.

Representatives Are Requested From
All Fraternities For Purpose
Of Fritming Resolution
All fraternities are to send repre-
sentatives to the special meeting of
the Interfraternity council to be held
next Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 o'-
clock in room 304 of the Union.
The session has been called by
Wayne Schroeder, '28, president of
the council, for the final action on the
protest against the auto ban. This
resolution was deferred at the last
meeting, held on Nov. 14, as the mem-
bers of the council felt the document
should be couched in more specific
terms. The task of framing the reso-
lution in form for presentation to the
Board of Regents has been assumed
by a special committee appointed by

is highly important as other vital
matters in addition to the auto ban
