Playing Rcgular Right Halfback,
Wheeler Wip s IHis Third
'Varsity Letter.
Jack Wheeler, 31E, was elected
the most valuable man on the 1930
Michigan Varsity football team yes-
terdlay noon when the team had its
picture taken. Wheeler, a Bay City
product, has won his letter at Mich-
igan for the last three years, but
has not been accounted a regular
until this season. During hia~e year
of play at right halfback, however,
Wheeler has established himself
firmly in the ranks of Michigan's
great by virtue of his brilliant open
field running and his ability to
knock down passes.
At the begnnn g of hi gridiron;
career here Wheelr was the sec-
ond string quarterback, and in fat
held that post during' the first two
games of the season just finished.
:However, he gave such an exhibi-
tion of running that they had to
make a place for him on the Var-
sity, and how he filled this posi-
tion is best told by Harvard and
Stars Against Harvard.
Playing a steady, but not out-r
standing game all season until the
Crimson set-to at Cambridge,
Wheeler cut loose during the fourth
quarter and left the imprint of his
cleated shoes all over the Soldier's
" :Meld stadium on the banks of the
Charles River.
The next week against Minnesota
he left these same footprints smart-
ing on the Minnesota Gophers after
he romped through their whole
team for a touchdown on one of
Munn's punts, and then againl
nearly brake away late in the game
on another kick.
The Maroons were watchingt
Wheeler closely last week, but even<
then could not -stop him from gain- .
ing consist 'rtly.t
Should too much tress be placedE
on his offensive brilliance, it is]
worthy of mention that he was the
rnost capable defense man against
passes on the entire squad. Com-
pleted tosses were few in his tern-
tory, and while knocking d o wnl
passes was his strongest defensivea
asset, the gains which were madet
by the opposition around the ends
which he guarded were just as few.
Run Beats Gophers.
This is the last year Jack Wheel-
er will wear the Maize and Blue of
Michigan, but his run against Mn-
nesota which netted the only
towachdown of the game will long
be remembered by the spectators as
one of the most dramatic moments
of the entire season.
Wheeler and Captain -Sirzlal,
teamed at the halfback pos s,
,proved to be an excellent combina-
tion both on the defensive and of-
fensive. Simral, besides being an-e
other fine tackler and pass inter-
cepter, is a blocker of exepional
ability and was used to clear the
path for Wheeler's runs.

Intersectional Gridiron Classic
to Draw Record Gate.
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Nov. 25.-One of the
oldest and most interesting inter-
sectional gridiron rivalries-Notre
Dame and the Army-will be/re-
newed on Soldier Field Saturday,
probably before the biggest attend-
ance of the season.
At the rate tickets are going,
there are anticipation of a crowd
of between 110,000 and 120,000
which would rank second only to
the record attendance of 123,000
established last season when the
Irish defeated Southern California,
13 to 12, in the same stadium.
The rivalry has endured, with
only one interruption for 13 years,I
and has been regarded by Notre,
Dame as the high spot of its sched-
ule. When the Army and Navy had
their falling-out, the contest as-
sumed a similar importance at
West Point.
