Wolverines Plan To Put Quietus On Illini Silver Anniv

light in beating them, and tomorrow
he'll assuredly uncork some football
strategem designed to make it four'
straight over the Varsity eleven.
The Illini will miss the inspira-
tional presence of, their captain,
Lowell Spurgeon, who, until crippled
for the season, paced the attack. But
in Jay Wardley, Zuppke has a run-
ner and passer whom the Wolverines
will watch closely, if their plans don't
go awry. Wardley was a markea
man in Michigan practices the past
Trosko Spearhead
The Varsity spearhead is, of course,
Fred Trosko, who has steadily im-
proved as a runner and passer. Mich-
igan's kicking will be entrusted to
Elmer Gedeon, provided his leg in-
jury has healed sufficiently to per-
mit it. Bill Barclay, recently turned
regular, will again add assurance
against an Illini passing attack.
Doubt remained tonight as to who
will start at center, Archie Kodros
or Capt. Joe Rinaldi. Rinaldi's su-
periority on pass defense may get
him the nod, although Kodros, a
rough and tough tackler, is the better
man against line rushes.
Expect Air Attack
Should Michigan's running game
Jam, as it may in ).view of Illinois'
vaunted defensive prowess, an air-
plane attack may be expected. Trosko
and Stark Ritchie have thrown passes
with slightly accurate abandon dur-
ing the week and may find enough
targets todpierce theIndians. Illinois
revealed decided weaknesses against
aerial maneuvers in the Indiana
fracas, which the Hoosiers won by
virtue of their tosses.
The Illinois line outweighs Michi-
gan's by two pounds average. The
Wolverines have a five-pound shade
in backfield avoirdupois.
Since the start of this ancient
rivalry in 1898, Michigan holds a 14
to 8 victory edge over its opponent.
Illinois has won the past three years,
although on no occasion by more
than three points. It's anybody's
game tomorrow, with Michigan earn-
ing a slight nod. But spirit may tell,
and Zuppke is one of football's
cagiest psychologists. At all events,
it will be a gala holiday.
A powerful Lansing Eastern foot-
ball squad maintained their unbeat-
en, untied, unscoredupon record last
night at the expense of Ann Arbor
High's Pioneers at Wines Field, win-
ning by a 20 to 0 score.
Led by quarterback Bob Sherman
and fullback Brower, the Quakers
scored twice in the second period
on sustained drives and came back
to ring up their final seven points in
the last quarter.
Let This Be A Lesson
To You Cheerleaders
ADRIAN, Oct. 29.-P)-There
are times, it appears, when the
cheers of the spectators can in-
spire a football team to too much
zeal-at least as far as the cheer
leader's welfare is concerned.
For example this afternoon, Miss

Phyllis Munger, a member of the
cheer leading staff at Adrian
High School, decided that a
mighty "Yea! Team!" would in-
spire her school's "gridders who
hadn't won a game up to today.
She was only half way through
the yell when George Gordon,
Adrian quarterback, ran around
Blissfield's left end for 18 yards
before being forced out of bounds.
As he crossed the boundary line,
Gordon, several would-be blockers
and a half-dozen Blissfield tack-
lers landed on Miss Munger. She
was kicked in the head and had
to obtain first aid from a physi-
cian as the penalty for a task too
well done. Adrian won, 30-0.
Detroiter Captures

Marcel Camp, of Detroit, took undis-

straight victory.

These Two To Anchor



Raipn eikknen, junior from'
Rumsey, Michigan, will start at
his customary right guard post,
this afternoon against Illinois.
Heikkinen, an 180 pounder, has
been with the squad two years, and
is expected to play his usual bang-
up game.
Tilts Outshine
Big Ten Today
CHICAGO, Oct. 29.-(R)-Big Ten
gridiron championship business will
move over a little tomorrow in favor
of a pair of big nonconference deals
-mighty Minnesota against Notre
Dame, and Indiana's scrappy Hoo-
siers against Nebraska's power.
The eight other members of the
league will be busy working on each
other, with the Buckeyes of Ohio
State rolling against Chicago in quest
of their third straight conference
victory, and Wisconsin's surprising
Badgers battling Northwestern, in
the games of championship signifi-
cance. Sentiment and bids for con-
solation victories will furnish the
chief appeal when Michigan tackles
Illinois, and Iowa invades Purdue.
Supplementing the Big Ten pro-
gram will be the neighborhood's
chance to see one of the Pacific
Coast's top ranking elevens, Santa
Clara, in an intersectional battle with
Marquette, at Chicago's Soldier Field.
The Big Ten figures to break even
in the two big struggles. Minnesota,
fortified by two weeks of preparation
since untracking its great offense
against Michigan, appears to have a
definite bulge over Notre Dame. The
Irish, however, were hotter than a
pistol in the second half against
Navy last week, and may have found
themselves. Anyway, a capacity
crowd of 64,000 in the Gopher sta-
dium is likely to see a terrific

note: A vile inaccuracy), and
U.C.L.A. over Washington State.

and defeat.
The contrast between the "pepper"
dished up by the various members
of the Wolverine coaching staff is
broad as daylight. There is a con-
tinual chatter going on. From,
Coach Harry Kipke's Major Bowes-
like "That's all right" to Wally Web-
er's "That's the old gogo" the com-
ments range.
"Kip" invariably refers to his
charges by their first names while
"Hunk" Anderson usually calls them
by their last. Should Tex Stanton
for example make a nice run through
the center of the line, Kipke would
probably exclaim "All right, Tex, it's
looking better in there" while An-
derson would come forth with "Now
we're looking like a ball club."
Weber Most Loquacious
Wally Weber, the most loquacious
verb slinger on the staff, is usually
right on the spot with a very meaty
remark for every occasion. When pass
defense is the order of the moment,
Wally comes out with "Let's go in
there, we'll make 'em eat that apple
Saturday-we'll shove it down their
necks." Sometimes it comes out like
this: "Come on you guys,.run, run
get the lead out of your pants."
Freshman Coaches Ray Fisher and
Cliff Keen are much softer spoken.
Fisher always refers to his team as
"my boys" and usually offers his
criticism in a quiet manner. Ho has

Coach Weir's unknown white hope
that is to save the, tennis team from
mediocrity apparently has not shown
up on the scene as yet judging from
the tennis practices this week.
The players present at these ses-
sions played in a way that could
hardly be called inspiring, but Mr.
Weir's patience seems to be unlimited.
The first event on the week's pro-
gram was a singles match between
Weir and Bill Smith in which the
latter failed to show much except an
excess of power that kept sending the
balls flying anywhere from five feet
beyond the baseline to infinity.
He was, however, making a stab at
what might be called a forcing game,
and showed four or five very nice
On the adjoining court, Steve Wool-
sey and Ernie Rawlas were batting
the ball around in a little more heart-
eningmanner. Rawlas would un-
doubtedly be much better if he were
able to work out more often, for he
has a nice foundation for a game.
Woolsey, however, appears to be defi-
nitely on the upturn, and it is hoped
that he will continue that way during
the winter.
