Hard Battle In
Game Saturday
Ohio U Has Good Record
And May Surprise Fans
In OpeningTilt
LAFAYETTE, Oct. 4.-Fresh from
its 61 to 0 triumph over Morris Har-
vey S a t u r d a y, Ohio University's
husky Bobcat eleven will invade the
Ross-Ade stadium here Saturday
afternoon to meet Purdue in what
is expected to be one of the hardest
fought opening day games in Boiler-
maker history. The Bobcats, who
have lost only three games in better
than four years, and demonstrated
their ability to handle the Notre
Dame style of play last fall when
they defeated the Navy, 14 to 0, dis-
played such offensive power in their
season's debut that Coach Noble
Kizer called a hurried conference of
his staff to plan means of bolstering
the Boilermaker defense for the aft-
Kizer Warns Boilermakers
"Impressive offensive power and
two lines that will more than match
ours in weight and d e f e n s i v e
strength" read the scouting report on
Ohio University's Saturday perform-
ance. Active preparations for the
Bobcat battle were launched Mon-
day afternoon w i t h an intensive
scrimmage session, as Coach Kizer
warned the squad that "football
games aren't won on paper, they're
won on the gridiron."
With a team of Ohio U's. calibre
providing the opposition, the game
will provide a real line on what suc-
cess the Boilermakers may be ex-
pected to have in their Big Ten cam-
paign. Judging from drills to date,
sophomores will stand little chance
of breaking into the starting lineup
for the initial encounter, and nine
out of the eleven men in the start-
ing eleven are expected to be seniors.
"Dozen Threat" Backfield
The game will make the first ap-
pearance of Purdue's "dozen threat"
backfield of Fred Hecker, Paul Par-
donner, Duane Purvis and Jim Car-
ter, which will be forced to perform
in mid-season form if it can hope to
crash through the stout Bobcat de-
Since the start of the 1929 season,
the Bobcats show a slightly better
percentage of games won than do the
Boilermakers. During this four year
period. Ohio University has won 32
games, lost 3 and tied 1 for a per-
centage of .914. Purdue, over the
same length of time has won 30, Jost
3 and tied 1 for a mark of .909. Both
teams have lost and tied the same
number of times, but the Bobcats
have played two more games than
the teams of Purdue, accounting for
their higher percentage.
Although one of the best opening
day crowds in years is expected with
a top price of $1.65, including tax,
for the best reserved seats, and spe-
cial sections of reserved seats in the
north curve at $1.00, including tax,
there will be plenty of tickets avail-
able at the game. The game has
been officially designated as Boy
Scout Day at Purdue, and Boy Scout
troops from all over the state will be
the guests of the athletic department
for the afternoon.I


PIunting Weakness And Injuries
Worry CoachBachman At State

"Who's Afraid Of
The Big, Bad
-1 *
COLLEGE written to his sweet-
heart in the Big, Wicked City:
Dear Mabel:
How is the ever-loving girl-friend?
I am fine and have been getting
along swell ever since the boss sent
me down here to take a chemistry
course to learn about explosives. I
will never fcorget how amused the
boss was when that three-lb. bomb
which I made went off too soon and
blew our pal Nick the Greek into
kingdom come. The boss said that's
Nick all over! He was always a guy
with a swell sense of humor, if you
get what I mean, Mabel.
All us college boys down here in
Ann Arbor are pretty excited about
the first football game which is to
come off Saturday. It seems that
the Michigans are to play the Mich-
igan States and everybody here is
pretty enthused.
Here is the history of the thing.
The Michigans have always had a
pretty good corner on this football
racket from what I hear around the
town. Michigan State has always
been a smaller institution. In fact,
for years the Michigan States are
called the Michigan Aggies and I un-
derstand that it gives them more
than somewhat of an inferiority
But they change their name to
the Michigan States several yrs. ago
and begin to think serious of muscl-
ing in on the football racket in a
big way. Naturally, the Michigans
do not exactly like this, especially
when the Michigan States tie them
two yrs. in a row and begin to brag
all over the State about it when
before all this the Michigans have
practically the exclusive right to brag
about football.
Last year the Michigan States are
strong and they hear that the Michi-
gans are weak and so they talk all
summer about how they are going
to put the slug on the Michigans
something frightful. They also get
together and sing their theme song
about "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad
Wolverine?" until they dream about
beating the Michigans practically
every night.
Well, the long and short of it is
that the Michigans put the bite on
the Michigan States to the tune of
twenty-six to nothing.
This year it is a different story,
Mabel. There has hardly been a
peep out of the Michigan States so
far and we are beginning to wonder

Charley Bachman today regarded
Ichigan State's punting weakness
a-id injuries his greatest worries as
n-eparations continued for the Mich-j
i ;an game Saturday.
The kicking deficiency, a new one
at State, did not improve Tuesday
despite a long drill with the team's
leading punters. Captain Bernard
McNutt, fullback, suffering with in-
juries to his ribs, and Alton Kircher,
quarterback, who has a bad knee,
have not made the progress toward
recovery for which Bachman had
Bob Armstrong, Benton Harbor
veteran, and Kurt Warnbein, his
sophomore neighbor from St. Joseph,,
alternated in punting practice. Nei-
ther was consistent, however, in
height or distance and Bachman saw
little hope for last minute improve-
ment. Of the two Armstrong gave
the best exhibition.
Warmbein Pleases Coaches
Bright spots of the practice,
marked by jarring offensive and de-
fensive scrimmages, were continued
with improvement noted in the line
play and in the newly developed aer-
ial game. Warmbein pleased coach-
es with his accurate heaves while
Jackson, tall Negro end, was snag-
ging passes out of the air for long
gains. The two may give State its
first real passing combination in
years. Bachman also stressed the
passing defensive and the varsity
looked even better at batting down
the "Michigan" passes used by a
freshman team.
If McNutt and Kircher remain on
the bench Saturday, Bachman may
be forced to rely upon virtually un-
down here. They say that last yr.
you can hardly sleep for the noise
of the Michigan States staying up all
night and carousing and singing
"Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wol-
verine?" sixty miles away. So the
nights are just fine for sleeping, ex-
cept that I miss the noise of the ele-
vated more than somewhat.
Well Mabel I must get along to
class. Remind the boss that if the
professor I have for chemistry flunks
me in the midsemester he promised
to send down two tommy-men with
a machine gun to rub out this prof
with and I am beginning to think
that I do not like him either.

tried material for much of the back-
field work. Charles Muth, quarter-
back understudy of last year, may
get the quarterback assignment. Don
Wiseman appeared as the probable
choice at fullback if McNutt fails to
round into shape. Both Kircher and
McNutt were in uniform yesterday
but will remain out of scrimmage.
Bob Terlaak, v e t e r a n guard,
watched the team from the bench.
He is nursing a heavy cold but prob-
ably will recover in time to play
Gordon Reavely, one of the best
prospects to start at tackle, was back
in scrimmage for the first time in
two weeks.
Bachman alternated two teams in
the scrimmage giving little indica-
tion of his starting line-up, particu-
larly in the backfield.
Equipoise May Run

LAUREL, Ind., Oct. 4-()-James-
