two evenly matched teams alter-
nating in defensive and offensive'
play. Statistics reveal how evenly
the opposing elevens divided the
spoils of the afternoon. The Illini
registered eight first downs to seven
for Michigan; gained 133 yards by
rushing to 125 for Michigan, com-
pleted four1out of 18 attempted
passes for gains totalling 40 yards,
while the Wolves completed two
out of 11 tries for 35 yards.
To cite Michigan players "for in-
dividual honors is a difficult task,
as a team they fought as few
Michigan teams have ever fought.
The line from end to end function-
ed almost faultlessly in stopping
the drives of Fritz Humbert, highly
touted Illini line plunger and the
off-tackle dashes and end runs of
Peters, Timm, and Mills.

ed a remarkable game at right
guard to share top honors with
Otto Pommerening, Michigan's de-
pendable left tackle. Cragin turned
in another good performance at the
center post with the exception
of a few erratic passes early in the
game, while Steinke, Hulbert,
Squier, Truskowski, Draveling and
Bovard, the other linemen who
saw service all played integral
parts in the Michigan victory.

Alvin Dahlem
who proved a thorn in the side
of the Illinois pass attack by in-
tercepting three of the Zuppke-
men's aerial attempts.

With Captain George Rich re-
verting to the form he displayed at
Chicago last year performing the
leading role, the' Wolverines flash-
ed a linebucking attack that com-
pletely eclipsed the efforts of
Humbert and Bergeson, the Illini
fullbacks. Rich accounted for 67
yards to lead the field in gains
from rushing, including a brilliant
29 yard off-tackle run in the third
period. Gembis made a total of 34
yards besides backing up the line
Diminutive Alvin Dahlem broke
into the starting lineup for the
first time and played a steler de-
fensive game, besides turning in
several nice runs for a net gain of
17 yards. It was Dahlem who
placed the Wolverines within scor-
ing distance in the opening quar-
ter when he intercepted an Illini
pass from the hands of Stuessy on
his own 35 yard line and brought
the crowd to their feet with a
beautiful dash to the opponents 241
yard mark where he was tackled
from behind.
It was the task of 'Simie' Simrall
to handle the punting assignment
and with two exceptions, when* his
punts went out of bounds too soon,
he did a good job of it. His long
spirals, one of which traveled 53!
yards, repeatedly forced Mills toy
punt from the shadow of his own
goal posts.E
For the Illini, Frosty Peters
stood head and shoulders above his
mates on the offensive. Besides
menacing the Michigan goal with
his drop-kicks, he featured his
team's running attack. It was
Peters who caused the Michigans
ends the most trouble, and it was
Peters who pressed Rich forl
ground-gaining honors with a total-
of 55 yards to his credit.I
Fritz Humbert was the other big
gun for the invaders, his efforts
resulting in a net gain of 45 yards.
He was also instrumental in back-
ing up the line.
Considering the fact that it was
composed almost entirely of vet-
eran material, the Illinois forward
wall hardly deserves the credit
that must be given to the Wol-I
verine linemgen. Rich and Gembis,
experienced infinitely more
success in their off-tackle drives
and center smashes than did the

the opposing backs.
Captain Nowack and Crane on
'the right side of the line were
overshadowed in their efforts by
Lou Gordon, Illinois left tackle
who played a great game for the
losers. In Jolley, veteran left end,
the Orange and Blue team has a
capable wingman and a player who
really knows how to cover punts.
Contrary to pre-game expecta-
-tions the first half saw the Michi-
gan team unleash an offensive that
kept the ball in Illinois territory
during the greater portion of the
time although the first downs for
the half were even at four all.
An exchange of punts left the1
Illini in possession of the oval onj
their own 44 yard line. Bergeson
made three yards through center,
but it was offset by a five yard
penalty for offside. Timm slipped
off his own left tackle for three
yards and Bergeson hitrthedleft

he was cut down from behind on
the Illini 24 yard mark. A de-
layed pass play with Dahlem carry-
ing the ball netted a first down
on the Indians 11 yard line, and
after Simrall failed to gain on two
plays, Gembis dropped back to the
30 yard line and booted a per-
fect goal from placement.
The rest of the half found thel
Wolverines on the offensive dur-'
ing, the greater part of the time,
Simrall's punting keeping the ball
deep in Illinois territory. On one<
occasion Truskowski heaved a 32
yard pass, to Dahlem who stepped 1
out of bounds on the Illinois 38
yard mark after making the catch.t
And shortly afterwards Simrall1
placed a punt out of bounds on thec
invaders 5 yard mark.
Illinois came back strong afterI
the half to assume the offensive
burden, only to find their effortst
repulsed by the stubborn Michi-z
gan defense. Except for Peter'sI
long drop' kick which missed beingt
good by the narrowest of margins,c
the Illini did not seriously threat-l
en the Wolverine goal.s
Michigan resumed the offensivef
in the final period with Rich and
Gembis pooling their efforts in aI
savage attack on the Illinois line t
that netted three first downs. Thec
last scoring attempt of the contestc
came near the end of this quarteri
when Peters tried another drop-t
kick from Michigan's 35 yard line.e

cepted by Dahlem on his 35-yard
line and he ran to the Illinois 24-1

down from behind.

Massive Gateway Leading to Yale
Bowl Will Commemorate Work
of the Great Sportsman
(By Associated Pros)
NEW HAVEN, Nov. 3.--With
tribute paid to the sportsmanship
of the late Walter Camp, a great
memorial to the father of modern
rootball was dedicated at Yale to-
A massive gateway leading to the
Yale Bowl and athletic fields forms
the memorial given by American
colleges and schools uniting with
graduates of Yale to honor Camp
"and the traditions of American
college sport which he exemplified."
Delivering the principal address,
E. K. Hall of Darttmouth, chairman
of the national collegiate athletic
association committee in charge of
the plans for the memorial, praised
the spirit prompting participation
by other colleges and schools.
Mr. Hall, a life long friend of
Walter Camp, and head of the foot-
ball rules committee, came, he said,
to speak of a man who understood
the American boy as few men have.
"No man has done more for
American sport than Walter Camp
but his greatest contribution t6
sport is the standards of sports-
manship," he -said. "No man has
done more to build up the code
which, if we preserve it, will keep
our sports clean and wholesome for
all time and maintain these sports
as one of the powerful sources of
our nation's strength and our na-
tional character.
"That is why this monument is
here.That is why the schools and
colleges of the country rejoice to-
day in having shared the privilege
of building this memorial.'
The movement for the Camp me-
morial started in 1925 when the na-
tional collegiate athletic association
acting in behalf of its own mem-,
bers and other colleges and schools
of the country, voted to co-operate.
with the alumni of Yale in the:
erection of a memorial to Camp in
recognition of his distinguished,
contribution to American college
sport and sportsmanship.
Whin Joe Gembis kicked - the
goal from placement in the middle
of the first quarter it was the sec-
ond time that the Illini have been
scored on this season. It was also
one of the few field goals that have
been registered in the "Big Ten'F
thus far. Barratt of Ohio State
made one against Northwestern
earlier in the season.
