nip and tuck affairs, decided on the
breaks of the game and the queer
twist of fate.
The Wolverines, nettled by an un-
impressive showing at Yale last week,
should bounce back nicely today. The
pressure of Conference competition,
and the thought that Northwestern
may dump Minesota and throw the
race wide open, should be sufficient
impetus for Michigan today.
Both Teams Relax
Thee varsity worked out lightly yes-
terday and were quartered outside of
town last night. All of the regulars
will be ready for action with the ex-
ception of Roland "Joe" Savilla,
husky tackle, still incapacitated by a
foot injury. Illinois drilled in sweat
suits at the Stadium and encamped
at Dearborn for the evening.
Zuppke brought a squad of 36 for
the game, but he insisted that only
one regular would start, Capt. Jim
McDonald at center. Bob Wehrli,

stellar halfback, watched his team-
mates drill in street clothes. Wehrli
fractured and dislocatedhis elbow in
the Northwestern game.
Mazeika. Injured
Another of the injured visitors was
little Tony Mazieka, Wehrli's run-
ning mate. Mazeika twisted his
ankle in the same Wildcat encounter
and limped badly as he watched the
sweat-suit drill yesterday. Zuppke
also reported that Jay Wardley's bad
knees will limit his play.
Injuries to the Illini guards has
necessitated the use of George Bern-
hardt at one post while senior Jim
Hodges, suffering from an injured
arm, will be at the other. Mel Brew-
er, who has been used at quarter-
back after a brilliant season at guard,
is crippled by a knee injury.
' Yet Illinois injuries are old.stories
in this classic of the gridiron, and
the wise ones insist that Zup will
have a powerful crew ready for work
today.

N. U. Final Hurdle In Minnesota Team
March To Another Conference Title

By TOM PHARES
It's up to the Wildcats today. If1
Minnesota is to be stopped this sea-1
son by Big Ten opposition, North-
western will do it at Dyche Stadium
this afternoon in the feature battle
of the Conference.!
Two weeks ago the Gophers were
rated a prohibitive favorite to van-
quish all comers. But now all that's
changed. Northwestern last Satur-
day ran all over Illinois showing a
scoring punch which drove through
the highly touted Illinois defense for
two long touchdown marches. At
the same time, the Wildcat defense
stopped the Illinois backs with a total
gain of but 38 yards all afternoon.

Junior Staff Bolstered
By Feminine Addition

The junior staff which is batting
around the .700 mark received the
aid of Mrs. Charolett Fish, secretary
in the athletic office, in making thisf
week's predictions. Last week the1
feminine addition picked 42 out of
49 in a football poll-three of the
mistakes were due to ties.
Michigan 7 over Illinois 0.
Santa Clara 7 over Mich. State 0.
Cornell 5 over Columbia 2.
California 7 over Oregon State 0.
Harvard 5 over Princeton 2.
Nebraska 6 over Missouri 1.
Holy Cross 7 over Colgate 0
Duke 4 over North Carolina 3.
Minnesota 5 over Northwestern 1
Notre Dame 7 over Army 0.
Pennsylvania 7 over Navy 0 ,
L.S.U. 5 over Tennessee 2
Pittsburgh 7 over Fordham 0
Texas Christian 6 over Baylor 1.
Arkansas 5 over Texas A&M 2.
Dartmouth 7 over Yale 0.
Wisconsin 7 over Indiana 0.
Southern Cal. 6 over Oregon 1.

were unable to cross the Northwes-
tern goal line and that will be a
tough job even for the mighty Go-
phers with two weeks rest behind
them. It will be a close battle so
choose your own winner.
The Michigan - Illinois contest
promises to rank as high in thrills I
as it does in importance to Wolverine
title aspirations in case of a North-
western victory over Minnesota. As
usual, Michigan is favored but that
doesn't mean a thing to Zuppke. Bear
stories? Well, Van Every wasn't in
shape to play either.
The only other team with an un-
beaten record in the Big Ten is Ohio
State who has whipped Indiana and
Chicago, losing only an intersectional
battle to Southern California. The
Buckeyes can't go wrong today be-
cause they are not involved in a
championship game. They are fa-
vored in New York City to whip the
N.Y.U. Violets.
Indiana's twice-beaten Hoosiers
will go against Wisconsin at Madison
today where title enthusiasm has
slackened because of the defeat at
the hands of Purdue last week. It's
still the Badgers by a fair margin in
the opinion of the 'experts' who have
Broncos Favored.
To Beat Spartans
EAST LANSING, Oct. 28.--AP)-Six
short weeks ago the Spartans of
Michigan State were asked what
football team they considered the
toughest on their 1938 schedule. Al-
most to a man, they voted for Santa
Clara.
Hitting their comeback pace. two
weeks ago against West Virginia and
lengthening their stride last week
against Syracuse, the Spartans to-
morrow will be face to face with a
team which has won 21 out of its last
22 games, 14 of them-in a row, a two-
time Sugar Bowl Champion and
ranked' as the nation's fifth best
squad.
