The advance sale of seats for this
afternoon's game seems to indicate
that the crowd will reach the 40,000
mark, a figure considerably greater
than that of a year ago. The atten-
dance record for the State tilt last
season was 32,000.
Michigan State rooters are
expected to be on hand in full
force to cheer their team in its
bid for victory, and the well-
drilled military band will vie
with the Maize and Blue
musicians between halves.
It is interesting to note that all
three of the Varsity coaches at
Michigan State were numbered
among the members of the Michi-
gan team in 1921. It was the first
year of Varsity competition for'
Kipke and Vand0rvort, and the
fourth for Wilson.
'Gob' Wilson, the Spartan
head line coach, will be remem-
bered as one of the star line-
men on the Michigan teams of
1918, 1919, 1920, and 1921. In
spite of his small stature, he
was considered one of the most
capable performers on the
After completing his collegiate
career Wilson took up coaching
duties in the South, and spent some
time at the University of Alabama.
This fall he came to East Lansing
to fill the place of Edriff Slaughter,

was slated to assist Kipke,

Northwestern Paper
Stirs Chicago Team
Editorial In Daily Northwestern
Suggests Chicago Has
Left Big Ten
CHICAGO, Nov. 18-University ofl
Chicago students are up in arms
because of an editorial in the Daily
Northwestern, student publication
of Northwestern University, whichj
suggested that Chicago quit Big
Ten athletics "because of the in-
different .success of its teams."
Some of the most irate planned
retributive action, recalling the sev-
erance of athletic relations be-
tween Chicago and Northwestern
two years ago, but university of-
ficials are doing'their best to quell
the disturbance.j
Athletic director "Tug" Wilson
of Northwestern was the first to'
rally to the defense of Coach Amos
Alonzo Staggs of Chicago, review-
ing his record as football coach-
a record that shows eight football
championships in 37 years and nu-
merous ties.

Clash At Iowa City Probably Will
Aid In Determining Leader
Of Conference Race
Leading by far the other two
games between Big Ten elevens in
point of interest, the struggle at
Iowa City today between the un-
beaten Hawks and the Badgers,
their strong rivals for the Con-
ference football crown, has all the
,potential possibilities of being one
I of the big "thrillers" of the year.
Iowa has in turn vanquished
Chicago, Minnesota, and Ohio State
and confidence that they will again
trot from the field conquerers has
gotten into the Hawk's camp until
it is dangerously close to the stage
of overconfidence. Providing they
beat' the Badgers, the Iowa eleven
believehthey are headed straight
for the title with only one stum-
bling block in their way, Michigan,
ithe big question mark of the cur-
rent football season.
Hawks Given Edge
A victory for Wisconsin means
just as much to them for another
victory over Minnesota whom. they
meet next week, will give them un-
disputed right to claim the Big Ten
championship. Critics, have given.
Iowa a very slight edge over Wis-
consin which may account for the
fact that Coach Thistlethwaite is
not sharing the worries of Coach
Aside from, Iowa, City and Madi-
sonsihe interest 4n thisglaedis
probably nowhere more intense
than in Ann Arbor. Michigan can
still remember the snakey run of
Cusinier which spelled a Wolverine
daefeat in the final\ minutes of play
in the Wisconsin game and they
are also looking forward to the
game next week with what may
prove to be the leading contenders
for the Conference crown.
Iowa Line Strong
The Wolverines liked' the sessa-
tion of knocking the props out
from under the title hopes of its
bitterest rival, Illinois, and nothing
would suit the team and students
better than to repeat this stunt
next week providing of course that
Iowa wins today. At any rate the
result of today's game will give
some sindication of what may be
expected in Ann Arbor next Satur-
