Ohio State, Illinois Meet For 23rd Time Today At Chan


Buckeyes, With
Heavier T e a m,
Are Favorites
Game Is Important In Big
Ten Race; Both Teams
Are Contenders
Two strong contenders for the Big
Ten title will go about the business
of eliminating each other at Memorial
Stadium, Champaign this afternoon
when Illinois lines up against the
Ohio State eleven in the twenty-third
meeting between the schools.
It will be homecoming day for the
Illini with Red Grange, Illinois' great-
est football hero, the guest of honor.
Illinois holds a slight edge in prev-
ious encounters, having won 11 con-
tests to 9 for the Buckeyes, while two
were tied. That the rivalry is one of
the bitterest in the country is evi-
denced by the close margins of prev-
ious victories, 11 games being decided
by the margin of a touchdown or less.
Game A Toss-Up
Both teams are very evenly matched
and neither coach is predicting vic-
tory, although Ohio State, due to its
33 to 0 victory over Indiana last Sat-
urday, is slightly favored in circles
outside the Illinois stronghold. The
Illini opened theirepractice season
with a 40 to 7 win, over Bradley, but
were held to a 12 to 7 margin by
Washington U. last week.
Despite his team's rout of Indiana,
Coach Francis Schmidt was anything
but pleased with the showing of the
Buckeyes. Too numerous fumbles
against the Hoosiers, coupled with the
traditional pessimism of coaches be-
fore a big game, combined to make
Schmidt doubtful concerning the out-
Ohio's line will outweigh Illinois 15
pounds per man, the Buckeyes averag-
ing 199 pounds from end to end, while
the Illini are in the 184 pound class.
However, Ohio's biggest hope is, its
veteran bakfield. Heekin and Smith
are purported to be two of the hard-
est running backs in the country.
Pincura will be in at quarterback, with
Ohio's great punter Kabealo, at full.
Has Veteran Backfield
In the Illinois line, Capt. Bennis,
Antilla, Gryboski, and Galbreath are
the veterans upon whom Coach
Zuppke will rely to stem the hard-
hitting Ohio backs. Illinois' fondest
hopes also rest in its backfield. Cap-
tain Beynon, whom Michigan well
remembers from last year, is a great
passer. Lindberg and Froschauer, both
two-year veterans carry the brunt
of the running attack, while Theo-
dore, a 184-pound sophomore will be
in at fullback.
The game may develop into a punt-
ing duel between Kabealo and Lind-
berg, who with Regeczi of Michigan
are the three best punters in the Con-
Michigan fans will await with in-
terest the result of this contest for the
Wolverines meet the Illini Oct, 20
and the Buckeyes Nov. 17.

Beccali Fails To Set
1,500-Meter Record

NEW YORK, Oct. 12. - (AP) -A
team of United States track and field
athletes today defeated a touring Ital-
ian group headed by Luigi Beccali,
Olympic 1,500-meter champion, eight
first places to six in an international
meet at Yankee Stadium contested be-
fore an estimated 20,000 Italian-
Americans celebrating Columbus Day.
With the weather more suitable for
football than track andtno oneto
push him, Beccali failed to lower the
universal standard of 3:48.8 for 1,-
500 meters breaking the tape in the
slow time of 4:02.
Joe McCluskey, former Fordham
star and Olympic steeplechaser, pro-
vided the feature by outsprinting Um-
berto Cerati in a shoulder to shoulder
finish of the 3,000-meter run, turn-
ing the tables on the Italian cham-
pion who defeated him at Cambridge'

in the locker room at Yost Field
House is a clipping from The Chi-
cago Daily News of one day last week.
The article was written by Ralph Can-
ncn, a sports writer of that paper,
and while ostensibly a prediction that
Michigan might find Chicago the
team which is to end its string of
Conference victories as it was back in
1905, Mr. Cannon makes several re-
marks which are not exactly testa-
ments to the spirit shown by the
Michigan team against Michigan
State a week ago.

Expected To Start At Halfback Post Today

-Associated Press Photo
Jay Berwanger, all-around backfield star of the University of
Chicago football team, is expected to provide mcst of the offensive power
the Maroons show against Michigan today. He can run, punt, and pass
and in addition to these accomplishments he has learned three backfield
positions. It is undetermined as yet at which of the three he will start. It
may be at full back in order to give the speedy Ned Bartlett a chance at
half. Berwanger himself is fast, being a member of the Chicago track
team last year. East fall, his first year at Chicago, he was mentioned on
several All-Conference teams.

"nothing so much as a bunch of self-
.cntented seniors, contented to rest
upon the laurels won in the previous
seasons," also that the "Wolverines
are definitely on the down-grade" and
all these Mr. Cannon attributes to
the disappearance of what has come
to be known as the "Michigan spirit."
Now Mr. Cannon should know
something concerning this "Mich-
igan spirit," for he is also the author
of a passage which has come to be
quoted as the classic expression of
that tradition of fight and spirit'
which Michigan claims as its heritage
from the most brilliant athletic past
in the Western Conference.

-Asso6iated Press Photo
Willis Ward, Michigan's Negro flash, is expected to start at half-
back against Clark Shaughnessy's Chicago Maroons in the Big Ten
opener for both schools today at Chicago. Ward, who was at end in last
Saturday's game in which the Wolverines fell before Michigan State,
was the individual star of a Michigan team that looked very disappoint-
ing. He is one of the fastest men in football or any other game, and is
expected to supply the speed which the Maize and Blue backfield did
not have in its first game. This is Ward's third year on the squad, but
his first experience as a halfback.

It is well to quote from that
passage, written in 1932 just after
a green Michigan track team had
risen to the heights in capturing
the Conference track meet:
"It's not just chance that few
Michigan athletes and few Mich-
igan teams are ever really poor.
They may suffer a day off form,
just likcB obby Jones or Babe
Ruth, but over the route, no mat-
ter it seems, who's in the lineup,
they're always in there playing
the game, with intelligence, with
courage, and with that fine res-
ilent will to win that grows out
of a long strain of winners.
".1. . for want of a better name
we call that tradition and that,
like the somatic cell, persists
through generations."
Fielding Yost, who probably more
than any other man has seen that
somatic cell of tradition with Mich-
igan teams, has'been quoted as saying
that "Michigan has been at the forks
many times before" and it is no idle
remark to say that Michigan is again
at the forks today.
Few will deny that the spark
which is that of a championship
team was missing in last week's
game. Neither will they deny that
if Michigan is to retain even a
vestige of its laurels it must re-
capture that spark which Mr.
Cannon has called tradition, and
capture it in today's game.
As one of the fellows said; with
grim determination, as he read the
clipping on the board the other after-
noon, "I'd like to see that man Can-

We would too, and we hope that
he will have occasion to be prop-
