olverine Eleven Is Upset By Inspired Fighting Illini,


Crisler's Leader Valiant In Defeat

Assistant Grid Coaches Merit
Recognition For Invaluable Aid

Of invaluable aid is the work of
Michigan's group of assistant coaches
who year in and year out put their
shoulders to the grindstone in an ef-
fort to keep the records of the Wol-
verine football squads up where they
The football squad has the largest
personnel of all the sports and there-
fore requires more men to handle
the instruction. Coach Fritz Cris-
ler's present crew numbers around
40 and obviously he cannot hope to
do all the work himself. And there's
where his competent staff of assis-
tants come in; namely, line coach
Clarence Munn, backfield coach Earl
Martineau, end coach Campbell Dick-
son, and utility coaches Bennie Oos-
terbaan, Wally Weber and Ray Court-
Munn Is An Institution:
In his second year at Michigan,
Munn ("Biggie" as he is known to his
colleagues) is already an institution.
The great line which he developed
last year and which reached its pin-
nacle with a thrilling defensive stand'
against Northwestern, was a tribute
to his painstaking ability. And yes-
terday was the first time this year
that an opponent has scored through
the Michigan forward wall.'
Earl "Marty" Martineau found a
trio of outstanding sophomores in the
ranks' when he took over the back-
field duties last year and proceeded to
make of them a polished unit. Quar-
terback Forest Evashevski and half-
backs Tom Harmon and Paul Kromer
provided the scoring punch which ac-
counted for six victories out of eight
games last year, and this year" Mar-
ty's" trio, together with Bob West-
fall, has shown even greater power,
although the unit has been tempor-
arily broken up by Kromer's knee
in jury.
Martineau's insistence upon a quick
start has been one of the reasons why
the Michigan scoring machine, al-

though slowed down yesterday after-
noon against Illinois, has totaled 172
points in five games.
Dickson Is Patient
Patience has been the virtue of end
coach Campbell "Dick" Dickson since
he joined the Wolverine staff last
year. He immediately recognized the
natural ability of Ed Frutig and
spent hours in brushing up his play
until such time as he could be worked
into the starting lineup, at which
time he blossomed out sensationally.
Another end in whom Dickson sees
a future star is Joe Rogers, who,
crude at the outset of fall practice,
has profited immensely from t'ie
blocking, tackling and pass catching
instruction of the Wolverine coach,
as well as from "Dick's" advice on how
to break up interference.
The work of Bennie Oosterbaan,
Wally Weber and Ray Courtright has
likewise been indispensable. All three
are excellent scouts, and the end
experience of Oosterbaan in particu-
lar has greatly aided Crisler and
Dickson in developing brilliant flank-
Not to be forgotten, either, are the
untiring efforts of the men in charge
of furnishing Crisler with new ma-
terial from the freshman ranks. Wally
Weber, as head frosh coach, and Cliff
Keen and Ray Fisher, Varsity wrest-
ling and baseball coaches respectively,
can be found on South Ferry Field
daily, drilling the first-year men in
search of another Harmon or Eva-
shevski, Kodros or Savilla.
Suits Made To Measure
Satisfaction Guaranteed!
Also Alterations and Repairing

Michigan's able captain, Archie Kodros, witnessed his team's first
defeat yesterday afternoon at Champaign, IlL. In spite of this entirely
unexpected loss, Kodros played his usual steady and brilliant game.
Iowa's Hawke yes Down Purdue
Boilermakers With TwoSafeties

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Nov. 4.-(P)--
After staving off two smashing offen-
sives with their backs to the wall,
Purdue's Boilermakers were thrown
for two safeties to give Iowa a 4-0
decision in a Big Ten Conference
football contest before 22,000 specta-
tors in Ross-Ade Stadium today.
Both safeties came in the fourth
period, the first after the visitors
'had been thrown back from the Pur-
'due six-inch line. Dropping back to.
punt out, Jack Brown was smothered
behind his goal line by Iowa tacklers
before he could get the ball away. A
blocked Purdue punt a few minutes
earlier, recovered by the Hawkeyes
on the Boilermaker 15, had paved the
way for the Iowa thrust and the re-
sultant two points.
Brown's Punt Blocked
Iowa tallied its second safety short-
ly afterward when its linemen ripped
through the Purdue forward wall to
block Brown's punt and down Leon
Dewitte as he pounced upon the ball
behind his goal.
The Boilermakers stopped Iowa's
vaunted aerial game, the Hawkeyes

completing only one forward pass
in eight attempted. But Purdue
couldn't withstand the visitors' power
on the ground. Iowa reeled off
eleven first downs against four for
Purdue. Brown intercepted four of
the Hawks' heaves.
Purdue's aerial offensive likewise
was bottled up, being good for only
18 yards on four successful tries.
Iowa had much the better of it
otherwise, gaining 179 yards from
rushing against 59 for the Boiler-
Kinnick Leads Running Attack
After a bad opening kickoff by
August Morningstar, which Herman
Snider covered for Iowa on his 44,
the Hawkeyes loosed a powerful run-
ning attack, with Niles Kinnick and
Ray Murphy carrying the ball
through wide holes in the Boiler-
maker line which advanced to the
Purdue 15. Then Brown intercepted
the first pass attempted by Kinnick,
the Iowa ace.
Early in the second period, Iowa
pounded to within 22 yards of a
touchdown but couldn't go any far-
ther in two downs. Bill Green was
tossed for a 7 yard loss and Kinnick's
short pass into the end zone went
straight into the arms of Brown.
