BENCHCOMBER
By BUD HENDEL
Daily Sports Editor
IN 1847 a physicist by the name of
Kirchoff gave to the world a law
concerning potential differences in
electric current. The main substance
of this law, as we get it, is "what goes
down must come back up."
Which brings us to a discussion of
the Illinois football team that faces
Michigan in the Stadium today. Or
rather, which brings Wally Weber to
a discussion of the same Illinois
eleven.
Wally, coach of the Wolverine
frosh, and a gentleman who makes
it a practice to talk in six syllable
words, has been scouting the Illini
for 12 years. He's seen them when
they were good and he's seen them
when they were so rotten that they
often looked worse than the kid
brother's backlot crew.
So Wally is well qualified to speak
on the gridmen from Champaign way.
THEY," said Weber rapidly warm-
ing up to the subject as only he
can, "are very, very good. They're the
best team I've seen come out of that
peaceful Illinois hamlet since 1934.
They've got speed and they're brim-
ming with that certain intanigible
thing we call spirit. And they're pow-
erful, mind you, very, very powerful.
He was asked what he thought
was the main reason for the sudden
and surprising upswing in Illinois
grid fortunes. Replied Wally, "They
forgot a lot of what they were
taught before this. Eliot discarded
the offensive formation flurries
that used to mark an Illinois team.
In their place he substituted, raw,
hard football. He's simplified things
down there. He's brought the game
back to the fundamentals, They
really block now, and their tackling
is some of the hardest I've seen."
"And don't overlook another thing,"
continued the genial freshman men-
tor. "Eliot has something to work
with. He has some sophomores who
spell the difference between medioc-
rity and superiority. Florek, Kasap
and Wenskunas are all sophomores,
but they're good, extremely good.
This Kasap just stays in that line
like a block of granite, and he won't
move and he can't be moved. He just
moves when it pays. Florek is one of
the most vicious blockers in the Con-
ference. Man, he can hit!"
Wally kept the floor and nobody
protested. "The Illinois team I've seen
this year had Dick Good. He probably
won't play here, which is a very for-
tunate happening from our stand-
point. He's really a fine passer, one
of the best. And this right halfback,
Correll, is one of the game's greatest
punters."
What about Agase? "Here's
what,"'said Wally "Agase is the
fastest charger in the league. He's
explosive, He's dynamite. He and
Franks are the two best in the Con-
ference. They've demonstrated
they've got it."
"Watch Illinois," Weber admon-
ished, "Theb 're hot. They work most-
ly from a balanced line, and it's main-
ly simple stuff but well-executed.
They're a first half team, but don't
count on it. They're weak on man-
power-no depth-but they give all
they have every minute. They'll be
dangerous all afternoon, and I mean
dangerous."
With that, Wally bid adieu. And if
he says so, it must be true. Illinois
really has it this year.

of 20-0 and 28-0. In the 27 game series, the Wolverines hold a decided edge,
having, won 18 and lost nine.
Like Michigan, the newly-strong Illinois squad is short in reserve ma-
terial. In its contests with Minnesota and Notre Dame, five of the linemen
played the entire sixty minutes, which means that today's fray should be
a scrap between the two ironman forward walls-Michigan's "Seven Oak
Posts," bruised but unhurt, and the sturdy Illini front defenders.
Second only to the outcome of the game itself is the impending fight
between two great guards. on those tough forward bulwarks, Julie Franks
of Michigan and Alex Agase of Illinois. With both bidding for All-American
honors, today's clash affords the only opportunity of the season to compare
the two together on the same field. Franks has been outstanding for the
Wolverines, and his bull-like rushes into enemy backfields have shot him
into a position of prominence among the nation's best linemen. Agase is
the speedy guard whose meritous work led Illinois to its Minnesota victory.
He scored two touchdowns against the Gophers, once stealing the ball from
Bill Daley's hands and galloping 35 yards to tally and another time re-
covering a loose ball in the end zone for the final score of. the day.
Kuzma, Griffin To Share Backfield Honors
Also pitted against each other for individual attention will be two of
the Big Ten's leading halfbacks, Tom Kuzma of Michigan and Don Griffin
of Illinois. Kuzma should hit his peak today after his long layoff because of
a severe knee injury, but he will find Griffin a willing and worthy foe.
They are two of the greatest running backs in the land and all eyes will be
focused their way as the two teams strive to shake them loose.
Neither eleven will enter the game in top shape. Coach Fritz Crisler's
team will probably be without the services of Don Robinson, shifty Detroit
halfback, who received a painful shoulder bruise last week. Robinson will
be used sparingly, if at all, and he will sit this one out unless absolutely
needed. Sophomore fullback Bob Wiese, too, is still recovering from a
sprained ankle incurred in the Northwestern contest. Wiese will likely see
some action, but in the meantime his starting post will be filled by Don
Lund who gave a good account of himself against the Gophers.
Illinois Passing Ace Won't See Action
Illinois left its ace passer, Dick Good, at home. His arm was badly
twisted against the Irish last week, and he hasn't been able to don practice
togs since. Also ailing are fullback Tony Butkovitch and first team quar-
terback Ray Florek. Myron Pfeifer, regular fullback last year, will move
into the starting lineup in place of the injured Florek. Both Butkovitch
and Florek made the trip from Champaign, and since their injuries are
minor they will undoubtedly play the greater portion of the game.
Starting at the end positions for the Illini will be Ray Grierson and
Elmer Engel. Jim McCarthy, the red-headed Irishman who won the Big
Ten golf crown here last spring, understudies Grierson, while Engel plays
almost entirely without relief. In the last four games, Engel has gone the
full sixty minutes.
Mike Kasap will fill one of the tackle spots, with John Genis holding
down the other. Kasap, the biggest man on the squad, has been one of the
mainstays of the Illinois .line all year _
although only a sophomore. He is re-
garded as one of the best tackles in
the Conference.
Star Sophomore Center
Playing at the other guard with
Agase will be Joe Pawlowski, another
booming lineman who has been re-
sponsible for a good share of the phe-
nomenal Illini success this season.
Mac Wenskunas, sopnomore center,
will start at the pivot post. His line-
backing has been excellent all year,
and his addition to the Illinois squad
has strengthened what formerly was
a weak linkD
In the backfield, Eliot will call upon
Pfeifer, Griffin, Walt Correll and
Capt. Jimmy Smith.aCorrell will do
most of the Illinois punting from his
right half spot, and he is considered FIRST CONGREGATIONAL
