Here's One Way Out
Speaking of his material down at
Champaign, Zuppke said. "We get
about seventy out in the Spring, but
twenty-five or so are ineligible." He
paused a moment, then added this
ironical touch, "The boys you see out
there are all Rhodes scholars."
Asked about his freshman crop, he'
elicited more laughs with this com-
ment, "We have some pretty big boys
among them, but I'm afraid they're
too big to get through school."
Someone mentioned Northwestern's
Wildcats, who trimmed the Illini, 13
to 2 last Saturday and who go on dis-
play here on November 14. Zuppkel
said, "In Don Heap and this colored
boy, Jefferson, they have a couple of

This is the time of year when football spectators must be
prepared for anything in the way of weather. The late after-
noon sun can no longer be depended upon..to contribute very
much warmth, so that it's well to go prepared if you want to
enjoy the gampe. Notice the practical accessories pictured

Illini.Backs Outweighed
The Illini backs are outweighed
even more, Michigan's backfield av-
eraging 178 while the visitors' aver-
age is 151 pounds. Illinois is known
to be fast but so was Columbia and
the Wolverines were able 'to smash
through and stop them before theirl
plays could get started.
Kipke announced last night thatl
he will start the same lineup that
opened last week's game with the
exception of Cooper. Ritchie re-
places him. . Capt. Patanelli and
Danny Smick will be at the ends,
Earl Luby and Don Siegel at tackles,
Jesse Garber and George Marzonie at
guards and Joe Rinaldi at center. Bill
Barclay will be calling signals, Jphn-
ny Smithers and Ritchie will be the
halves and Sweet will be at full.
One of the hardest tasks for these
men will be the stopping of the Il-
linois overhead attack. Although
Michigan has a weight advantage
this will be of no significance when
the Illini unleash their "razzle-daz-
zle" offense that features a wide open
passing game. It will take speed and
altertness of mind and those. two
things alone to stop these passes.
Indians Boast Two Wins
Illinois has so far won two games,
beating De Paul and Washington
University of St. Louis, and has
dropped two. These were to North-
western and Southern California.,
The Illini and Iowa fought to a score-
less tie two weeks ago.
Michigan and Illinois started their
feud in 1898 and the Wolverines won
the first five games. Zuppke first
appeared on the scene in 1919 and
since that time Michigan has won
nine games and Illinois seven. Curi-I
ously enough no Michigan-Illinois
game was ever a tie.

For All-American
rates a campaign: Matt Patanelli
for All-American.
During the Minnesota and Colum-
bia games this fall the Michigan cap-
tain has shown that' he intends to live
up to the predictions made in his
sophomore year and play the caliber
of ball All-American selections should
Held back tremendously dur-
ing the Michigan State and In-
diana games by a pulled muscle
in his leg, the big 190-pound end
broke loose against the Gophers
at Minneapolis two weeks ago.
Playing opposite Patanelli when
Michigan had the ball was huge Ed
Widseth, Bernie Bierman's big tackle
whom the "experts" already have
placed on their All-American teams.
Motion pictures show what Matt
really did to Widseth. The Minne-
sotan husky was out of every play
in which he came in contact with
Patanelli. On occasions Widseth was
flat on his back-and once Pat had
him over behind the center position.
Those who saw the Columbia game
need no description of the play of
the Wolverine leader. He was all
over the field doing .what an All-
American end should do. On defense
he smashed the interference or knifed
in for the tackle as the occasion de-
manded. His inspiring leadership of
his less-experienced teammates was
plainly (ident even from the stands.
On offense Patanelli is all that
can b.e desired. Widseth of Min-
nesota and the Georgia Tech
lineman they carried off the Sta-
dium gridiron two years ago can
testify for his blocking ability.
He is fast enough to use his dead-
ly tackling to advantage down
undcr punts, and how his six foot
one-inch frame functions
catching passes was seen la
Saturday when he brought down
Johnny Smithers' long heave
with one hand.
