to be attempted by novices, and
when played with variations it was
so simple that ithnevergot beyond
the grammar school stage. WhatY
then, was there to attract the atten-
tion and interest of a great number
of boys?
The answer was found in speed-
ball, which had its first trial in the
fall of 1921. It met with immediate
success due to the fact that it com-
bined the footwork of football and
soccer, passwork of football and bas-
ketball, and general headwork.
Not Dangerous
There is no danger of serious bodily
injury due to the fact that there is
no running with the ball, thus elim-
inating the dangers of tackling. No
great cost is run up by the purchase HE PROOT
of uniforms and portective materials.
The rules are very simple as special .natural
attempts have been made to keep and to with
the game very clear. Scoring has been
made very easy thus keeping the in- color. Our
terest at a high point.
Speedball is now promoted as an
Intramural sport at many schools,
colleges, and universities throughout
the country, and has even spread in
Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, and
China. Before long, this game should
take its place alongside of football,
soccer, and basketball in intercolle-
giate athletics.

Out of the same battle, there rose
another mighty eleven destined to
ascend to the pinnacle of national'
football acclaim. That eleven was
Minnesota. Beginning in the follow-
ing Wisconsin game which the Goph-
ers won, 6-3, Bierman's "boys" clicked
off 21 consecutive triumphs before
the Northwestern Wildcat clawed
them into a 6-0 defeat in 1936. But
they were still national champions.
Last year the Gophers slipped, but
Minnesota football mediocrity was
still far away. They were still Big
Ten champs, even though losing by a
combined'6-point total to non-con-
ference foes. Meanwhile, the Wol-
verines started climbing back, won
four out of eight games.
And up to Saturday's game, the
Gophers have started on another
brilliant campaign, winning three
games with power reminiscent of
Gopher elevens of '34 and '35. But
the loss of Harold Van Every,
phenomenal junior passer, has
forced the Gophers to grind out
victories the hard way . . . by
power . . . without a dangerous
overhead threat to baffle the op-

To stop and think, as many Minne-
sota fans are doing, are Minnesota
and Michigan still the barometers of
the national football hurricane? May
Saturday's game be another turning
point in Big Ten football? May an-
other possible tie rocket Michigan
football fortune to the heights of
yesterday, and relegate Minnesota to
a secondary position? Well, will his-
tory repeat?
But anyone's a sucker to gaze any
farther ahead than yesterday into
the land of What's Coming. So we'll
just wait and see who gets "jugged"
