Trosko, who was personally re-
sponsible for both Michigan victories
this season, has disappointed with
his kicking. But that notwithstand-
ing, Trosko is not likely to be for-
gotten when the going resumes its
tougher aspects.
Janke Returns
Another important change in the
Michigan lineup is the presence of
Fred Janke at left tackle. Because
he's too valuable to be refused an
opportunity, Janke has replaced Don
Siegel in the starting lineup. Last.
year, he was en route to all-star rec-
ognition as a tackle until injured in!
the Minnesota game. Earlier this
fall he was shifted to fullback, but
fizzled at that post and was returned
to the line. He will alternate with
Siegel, who has gained more than a
modicum of notice for his tackle play.
In practice last nigiht, John Kin-
sey, a'sophomore fullback, who was
recently promoted from the junior
varsity team, outkicked his team-!
mates in a punting session and may,I
as a result, be given a chance :to
utilize his specialty. Bob Piotrowski,
a senior back, has been shifted to

A tarpaulin placed over the playing
field eliminates the possibility of a
wet gridiron, which is always an
equalizer between football teams, and
which might help Chicago.
To sum-up the tilt, Michigan is al-
most a sure victor and Chicago is
pointing to Beloit, its next opponent.

CHICAGO, Nov. 5.--('P)-The best'
wishes of Northwestern and Minne-
sota will be riding with Indiana to-
morrow when the scrapping Hoosiers
attempt to sidetrack powerful Ohio
State's march toward Big Ten foot-
ball honors.
The battle, standout of the Con-
ference's championship schedule for
the day, shapes up as the crisis of
the Buckeye campaign. If they con-
quer the menacing Hoosiers, their
path to a perfect league record should
be a downhill drag. After Indiana,
Ohio State has Illinois and Michigan,
neither of which appeared to have
the equipment to stop Francis
Schmidt's fine team.
Provides Setup
A defeat for the Buckeyes, how-
ever, would provide the setup for
a twoway, or even a threeway tie
for the title. In that event, Minne-
sota could claim sole ownership by
defeating Iowa, Northwestern and
Wisconsin, and Northwestern could
salvage a share of the honor it won
last season, by whipping Illinois and
Ohio State, without a player who
stands out above his mates, but
with exceptional balance, figures over
the Hoosiers. Nevertheless, Indiana
which produced great ground gaining
power without touchdown punch in
losing battlesagainst Minnesota and
Nebraska, is primed to make a ter-
rific bid in the Buckeyes big sta-
Offense Rated High
Neither Northwest nor Minnesota
is expected to encounter trouble to-
morrow. The Wildcats appear to
have to much offensive power even
for Illinois' fine defense. Minnesota
should bound back from its defeat
by Notre Dame to take good care of
Iowa which has not connected for a
major victory.
The Buckeye-Hoosier scrap shares
Midwestern attention with Notre
Dame's stand against Pittsburgh at
South Bend. The Irish hope to make
a scoring thrust or two and their
brilliant defense more than matches

yesterday was doing a bit of kicking
and while standing on the 40 yard
line made the boast that he would
on his next kick hit the white stand

end of the field.
Amidst deep skeptiicisim, Dave
took the pass from center, punted,
and hit the stand right on top-

yards, no more, no less.
