URANA, Ill., Sept. 22.-There is
still a vacancy on the University of I
Illinois backfield for another "Red"
Grange, and even one not quite so
good as the famous redhead would be
welcome this fall. For his fifteenth
season at Illinois, Coach Robert W.
Zuppke has a powerful and experienc-
ed line in prospect, but is shy of good
Jud Timm, who was injured in early
practice last fall and out for the sea-
son, is the one bright prospect as a
ball carrier if his injured arm does
not bother him. Fifteen of last year's
veterans are among the sixty-five
called to report on Sept. 15. Frank
Lanum, Frosty Peters, Art French and
Jimmy Stewart are the backfield vet-
erans but Lanum is the only one of
these sure to be used regularly.
Peters, the Montana lad who came
with such a wonderful high school
reputation as a drop kicker, made
good on that specialty, but probably
will be switched to end this fall, as
he lacks weight.
Among his line candidates, Zuppke
has two giants. T. B. Huddleston
weighs 243 and L. Wietz 232, both on
the freshman eleven last year.
Captain Robert Reitsch is, of
course, a fixture at center where he
won the conference honors last fall.
Big husky guards are plentiful but
none of the tackles quite measures up
to Bernie Shively, last year's star at
that position. Marriner, Grable,
