Pig He Lost In Bet
IOWA CITY, Ia., Nov. 9. - ( ) -
The governor of Iowa is going to de-
liver personally the pig he lost to the
governor of Minnesota on the Iowa-
Minnesota football game today.
He said he is going to drive a truck
bearing the pig to St. Paul and herd
the pig "right into Gov. Floyd B.
Olsen's state house office."
"That's what I'm going to do," Gov.
Clyde L. Herring tonight declared,
after he lost his best with Governor
Olson because Minnesota's football
team defeated Iowa, 13 to 6.
"I'm going to take the pig to St.
Paul in a truck and personally herd
it into Olson's office. I hope his car-
pet wears well. The pig will be named
either 'Floyd' or 'Floydina,' depend-
ing on the sex."

"There has been no greater soul

were handed in during the spring se

"frod," used as "You've frodded

r "june around," which was used in
the sense "I've been juning around

There is a great deal of variety in
expressions denoting inebriation in
usuage today. A list compiled by
students included: "plastered," "pret-

"full," "pie-eyed," "high," "boiled,"
"stewed," "cackled," "canned," "hap-

After Revolution, Gained
Fame As Singers
The Don Cossack Russian chorus
consisting of 36 expatriated officers
of the former Imperial Russian Army
under the leadership of Serge Jaroff
will return to Ann Arbor for thei
third concert at 8:15 p.m. tomorrow
in Hill Auditorium.
Known as the "Horsemen of the
Steppes," the chorus banded together
when they were taken prisoners in
the south of Russia during the revol-
ution. Without instruments or music
of any kind they attempted to pass
away the hours in singing. After the
war, they could not go back to Russia,
but remained together and achieved
prominence in Europe. Through the
efforts of the late Dr. Albert Stanley
of the music school they were brought
to America and have made five very
successful tours of this country. Since
they are "men without a country," it
is only through the Nansen passports
issued by the League of Nations that
they can tour America.
Their program for tomorrow night's
concert includes "Credo" by Cretch-
aninoff, "Praised be Thou, O Lord,"
by Tchaikovsky, "We Sing To Thee"
by Kastalsky, "Funderal Song" by
Tschesnokoff, "Who Can Equal
Thee?" by Bortniansky, "History in

After the close of the formal con-
cert, it is expected that they will
again perform in certain musical
dances which have characteriszed
many of their programs.

Field Goal Late In Second
Period Proves Handicap
Team Cannot Overcome
Battle Is Waged
Over Field Of Mud
Statistics Show Wolverine
Eleven Was Outclassed
By WILLIAM R. REED
MEMORIAL STADIUM, Urbana,
Ill, Nov. 9. -A fighting Illinois foot-
ball team overwhelmed Michigan in
every respect but scoring this after-
noon as it trimmed the Wolverines 3
to 0 on a field transformedinto one
great mud puddle by an all-day rain
which fell throughout the game.
The only score of the game came
late in the second quarter when Low-
ell Spurgeon, Coach Bob Zuppke's
sophomore backfield flash, place-
kicked a beautiful field goal into a
hard wind from the 31 yard line.
Statistics tell the story of the game,
as they show Michigan hopelessly
outclassed in every department, and
they reflect the play of a fighting,
charging Illinois line which worked
in front of an Illinois backfield dis-
playing a perfectly executed running
attack despite the condition of the
Playing without four regulars, Sayre,
Theodore, Lindberg and Nelson, the
Indians abandoned their vaunted
aerial attack and unleashed a run-
ning game built about Wib Henry
which went through the Wolverines
for a net gain from scrimmage of 247
yards and 11 first downs.
Michigan On Defensive
Michigan was put on the defensive
on the opening series of plays after
Ernie Johnson's kickoff was returned
to the Illinois' 38, from where a run-
ning play and a 15-yard penalty for
roughness put the ball on Michigan's
43. Behind a great screen of block-
ers Spurgeon then took the ball to the
19 on a wide end sweep, but three in-
complete passes and a fumble put
the ball back on the 27.
The Wolverines failed to take the
ball outside their own territory on
offense during the game, reaching as
far as their own 43 but once. That
once came immediately after the
kick-off in the second half when
Ritchie ran to the 43 but fumbled,
the ball being recovered by George
Frederick, reserve Indian center.
Michigan had received a bad break,
however, at the opening of the second
period when Sweet kicked with the
wind from his own 25 to the goal line,
the ball stopping dead on the line for
a touch-back and eliminating a 75
yard gain which would have put the
Indians in a hole.
Taking the ball on their 20, Illinois
worked the ball out to the 41 on a
quarterback sneak by Henry, and af-
ter an exchange of kicks, two passes,
Henry to Wright and Spurgeon to
Henry took the ball to the Michigan
20. It was from there after plays
including two incomplete passes had
failed to gain that Spurgeon scored
on a field goal
Illini Gain 3-Yard Line
The biggest threat for a touchdown
was made by the Indians in the
middle of the third period when a
series of runs by Henry and a pass,
Henry to Cantwell combined to take
the ball to the Michigan 3. An off-
side penalty and Henry's fumble re-
covered by Schuman gave Michigan
the ball on their 11, there, however.
Wib Henry was easily the outstand-
ing individual star of the game as he
made repeated gains on reverses and
sweeps, a running attack which the
Illini showed for the first time. The
most brilliant play of the game, how-
ever, was turned in by the Indian
line, which furnished a screen of hard
blockers on offense and which smoth-
ered the"Michigan offense for a net
gain of 10 yards on defense.
Michigan failed to take smart ad-
vantage of a strong wind when it had
the ball, consistently punting on the
third down. Sweet averaged 38.4
yards on his boots, while Bob Wright,
transformed from an end to a back
for his kicking prowess, had an aver-
age of 39.4 yards.
