President White said he'd never send
his boys to "agitate a bag of wind."
Evidently a deemphasizer. He'd turn
over in his interrments if he were to
see his boys going to that den of
'emphasis," Columbus. Oh well, his
descendants will shudder after the
game anyhow. Ohio "State.
Illinois-Northwestern: We used to
hear the old bear story everytime
Chicago met the Illini. "Stagg fears
Zuppke" would resound again and
again. Northwestern may be in the
Chicago area but Lynn Waldorf is no
Stagg. Illinis will play Stags at
Bay and Northwestern will play foot-
ball.
Purdue-Santa Clara: There's some-
thing nice about intersectional games.
It brings a homely atmosphere. It
makes us feel as though we're all one,
big happy family. Purdue won't feel
that way before the game and Santa
Clara won't feel that way afterwards.
Poo, Poo Purdue.
Iowa-Wisconsin: Harmon likes
Iowa because he scored 27 points
against them. We like Iowa because
they have a nice team.

about a fourth down that was and

Fordham And Pitt Clash
In East's Biggest Tilt;
Wildcats Meet Illinois
NEW YORK, Oct. 27.-UP)-The
college football campaign, which each
week has managed to produce onel
game of overshadowing importance,J
turns up another "natural" tomor-
row in the meeting at Columbus be-
tween the unbeaten and untied forces
of Ohio State and Cornell.
It brings together two crack rep-
resentatives of their sections-Ohio
State, a team with better morale and
better balance than in recent years,
and ranked with Michigan as Big
Ten co-favorite; and Cornell, best
team the East has produced so far
and strong choice to retain the cham-
pionship in the Ivy League.
Sellout Crowd To See Irish
Carnegie Tech's Tartans, once
more the "underdog" in pre-gam
cal lations of a battle with Notre
Dane, were primed tonight to battle
the Irish before sellout crowd of 65,-
000 or more at Tech's stadium.
Heavy showers fell during the day
and tonight but the playing field was
covered. Showers also were predict-
ed for tomorrow. Coach Bill Kern of
the Tartans announced he will start
the same lineup as, faced New York
University Saturday except that the
more experienced Karl Striegel will
be back at left end in place of Robert
Church.

at the Polo Grounds.,
The Panthers won 24-13 last yea
following three straight years of
scoreless ties.
Fordham, back to the gridiron wars
after a two-week rest following set
backs by Alabama and Tulane, ha:
built its attack around two spee
merchants, sophomore Jim Blumen
stock and junior Len Eshmont. Pitts

its customary powerhouse to turn

By HAROLD WILSON
Not to be outdone by the Gallup
poll of public opinion, the Roving Re-
porter did a little galloping around
himself last night while canvassing
the candid opinion of what the man
on the street thinks about the Michi-
gan-Yale game today. The matter!
might be dismissed; by saying thel
man on the street doesn't think much
of it, but that isn't the way the
Roving Reporter does things.
No effort was spared in providing
the readers of The Daily with an
accurate mirror of public opinion. It;
matters little that the mirror is
cracked. Famou's and infamous
alike were questioned: "What do you
think of the Michigan-Yale game?"
Fritz- Crisler, reported to be close-

ly connected with the Wolverine
team: "It'll be a tough battle."
Ducky Pond (ditto with Yale team):
"It'll be a tough battle."
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, govern-
ment employee: "I caught some big
ones but you should have seen the
one that got away."
Charley McCarthy, fugitive from
a sawmill: "Are you sure they don't
have any wooden goal posts any
more?"
Annony Moose,. local phosopher:
"The Russo-Franco-Germo- rito sit-
uation is of particular significance
at the present time, but I'll take the
Yanks in four games."
Alpha Phi Sister, member of local

sorority: "Where are the Yale men?"
Luren D. Dickinson, political work-
er: "It will certainly be a great spec-
tacle-if the Boy Scouts keep their
knees covered."
Michigan's Live Wolverine, a mas-
cot by trade: "Where's the Eli Bull-
dog? I'll moider da bum."
Ivan Aytoclock, occupation un-
known: "Yale has tradition, but
Michigan has Harmon, Evashevski,
and Kodros."
Yale Man, described by observers
as "tall, smoking a pipe, conceited,
and sporting a crew haircut": "Aren't
there any decent coeds here?"
Harry Tillotson, Michigan ticket
manager: "Hope it doesn't rain, hope
it doesn't rain, hope it doesn't, rain
