Spirit Is High
As Illini Point
For Old Rivals
By BUD BENJAMIN
Take a team playing for a coach on
the commemoration of hisa35th an-
niversary as the leader of a Big Ten
eleven-add a crowd of rabid home-
coming alumni and parents-mix u
well with one of the oldest rivalries in
gridiron history-and you have the
Illinois angle in Saturday's game with
Not in spirit and determination
alone, however, do the Illini stack up
as a tough hurdle. Coach Bob Zup-
pke's forces have the man power this
year despite their lone victory over
Ohio U., ties at the hands of DePaul
and Notre Dame, and a loss to In-
diana. The team averages six feet
and 191 pounds, has great potential-
ities, and may find itself against the
Wolverines on Saturday.
Typical Zuppke Flankers
The material speaks for itself. At
the ends are Joe Klemp and Bob
Castelo. Both tipping the scales at
185 pounds and standing in the six
foot area, they are typical Zuppke
flankers. Castelo is a fine downfield
pass receiver, a good blocker, and a
first rate defensive man. Klemp is
not far behind.
Probably the best of the Illini line-
men is Harry Lasater, left tackle,
standing six feet four inches and
weighing 205 pounds. He will pairup
with "Tiny" Cramer, another six foot
Guards Are Named
At the guards, Mel Brewer and Dick
Fay continue the 200 pound motif,
while sophomore Jim McDonald, an
ex-tackle and a comer, is the ball-
The quarterback will be another ex-
tackle, Jack Berner, who picked up
the blocking ability which has won
him a backfield berth during two
years of line duty. He weighs 190,
stands five feet nine inches, and does
the Illinois punting.
The big Zuppke threat Saturday
will be left halfback Jay Wardley.
A passer extraordinary, a fine runner,'
and a kicker if needed, Wardley is
the boy for Michigan to stop.

W HEN you approach old problems with a fresh view-

For example: wires for telephone cable had long been
insulated by a spiral wrapping of paper ribbon.
Refusing to accept this as the "last word," a Western Electric
engineer mixed a wood pulp solution in a milk bottle-poured
it on a wire-the pulp stuck. The systematic development
of this idea resulted in a new and more economical insulat-
