carry. Young, who has been the
target of all five of Illinois' oppon-
ents, is second with 217 yards gained
on 50 runs for a 4.3 mark.
Eddleman, who confines most of
his activity to defensive play, has
averaged 7.6 yards on 10 trips with
the leather. However, Coach Ray
Eliot prefers to save the high jumper
for kicking and pass defense. As a
punter Eddleman has made 18 boots
good for a 41.6 average to rank ninth
in the nation in punting.
Illini Air Force Strong
To supplement his runningsattack
Eliot has passer erry Moss who
also calls the signals. A transfer
from Tulsa, Moss has been a key
man in the Illini version of the. T.
He does most of the flinging and
boasts 16 completions on 44 tosses
for a total yardage of 175. Rykovich
blossomed out as a passer against
Wisconsin last week and it is not
impossible that he will share the
burden with Moss today.
Up front the Illini have a veteran-
powered array of 200-pounders to
throw into the fray. Anchoring El-
iot's forward wall will be two of the
lightest men on the line, Capt. Mac
Wenskunas and Alex Agase. Wens-
kunas, who tips the scales at 182,
is rated as one of the Big Nine's best
defensive centers. Injured in the
Purdue game, Wenskunas will be
ready to go against Michigan.
Agase Twice All-American
Agase is well-known here. Twice
an All-American at guard in 1942
and 1943, he hasatwice performed
the dream of every lineman, to score
a touchdown. Back in '42 against
Minnesota he stole the ball from
Bill Daley and raced 35 yards for
one sore and covered a Gopher
fumble in the end zone for another
to lead the Illini to an upset win
over Minnesota. He wasn't so for-
tunate against Michigan but Wolver-
ine fans remember him for his ag-
gressive play.
The Illini will have a couple of
veterans at the tackles in Lou Agase
and Bill Franks. Agase, a letter-
man from 1945, weighs in at 190,
while his teammate scales a hefty
219 pounds. 231-pound tackle Mike
Kasap is out with injuries. Illinois
will have another "midget" at the
other guard slot in the person of
Bob Prymuski who carries 226 pounds
on his jaunts into enemy territory.
Owens Top Flanker
One of the Illini't bright lights
is Ike Owens, a 26-year-old senior,
who operates at the right end spot.
Never regarded as better than re-
serve mateial when he played in
1941, the tall rangy 181-pounder has
come up for a great year. Owens
was the Illini spark against Notre
Dame and in the Purdue game he
took one of Moss' heaves for a 44-
yard touchdown jaunt.
Teaming with Owens at the left
end spot will be Sam Zatkoff, the
Illini's number one pass catcher.
Zatkoff has snagged five passes for
a total of 60 yards in the Illini's
five games. Eliot's squad is well-
fortified at end with such proven re-
serves as Jim Valek, Joe Buscemi,
Bill Huber, Bill Heiss and Ray Cis-
zek, all lettermen.
Coach Fritz Crisler will undoubt-
edly counter Illinois' fast array of
backs with a flood of linemen and
backs. The Champaign lads took
a terrific pounding from Wisconsin

NEW YORK, Oct. 25 -(A)- To-
day the three top candidates for
national football honors - Army,
Notre Dame and Texas - all slam
into opposition calculated to tell
them, and the fans, a great deal
about their pretensions.
Is Army the invincible, all-pow-
erful team its supporters believe
it to be? Are the Irish of Notre
Dame a gridiron scourge, prepar-
ing to flay and destroy everything
they meet? Are the Longhorns
the greatest thing the Southwest
ever produced? Maybe we'll find
out this afternoon. \
Army, seeking its 24th straight
victory, almost certainly meets one
of its most formidable opponents of
the season in the Duke Blue Devils,
who are coming into thePoloGrounds
along with 8,000 yelling North Caro-
linians fully determined to check
Davis, Blanchard & Co.

Notre Dame, the bogey of the
Mid-West, figures to get a real
testing from Iowa's flawkeyes,
who bounced Indiana around, 13
to 0, a week ago. The game is be-
ing played at Iowa City, where
the Irish never have won. If Coach
Frank Leahy has a climax runner
hidden among his horde of Notre
Dame ball carriers, it is possible
he will have to pull him out for
this one.
Texas, which has been running
more or less wild up to now, meets
a Rice Institute team that was high-
ly touted even before the race began,
and which is said byTexas operat-
ives to be thoroughly capable of
halting the speedy Longhorns. If
Texas wins this one at Houston,
they say it's all over and Coach
Dana Bible can begin receiving con-
gratulations on a Conference title.

PLAY DIRECTOR - Perry Moss,

back will call the signals and han-
dle the quarterbacking chores for

LEADING MAN - Buddy Young, Illinois' great halfback who broke
out of a scoring slump last week against Wisconsin with a 34-yard

for the Conference title.
FRAT-RICIDE:
S.A.E., Phi Delts Stage Annual
Mud Bo w*l Grid Chassic Today,
Touch football will come into its own at 10 a.m. today when the men
of Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon clash in their annual Home-
coming battle in the SAE Mud Bowl.
True to tradition rain yesterday transformed the Bowl into more or
less of a quagmire for the contest. Vowing vengeance for two defeats in a
row at the hands of the Phi Delts, the SAEs promised to bury their oppon-
ents in the mud.
But the Phi Delts, who confidently expect to retain possession of the
"Very Little Brown Jug" for another year, kept a strict silence evidently be-
lieving that "actions speak louder than words."
There'll be another hot rivalry "

EAST LANSING, Oct. 25 -)-
Michigan State College was prepared
for its second dose of T-formation
football today as the University of
Cincinnati invaded Macklin Field
Stadium with over 20,000 fans ex-
pected to be on hand.
State, on the basis of its 19-6 up-
set victory over Penn. State last
week, was rated a slight favorite.
The Bearcats rolled over Ohio Uni-
versity last Saturday, 19-0.
Weight in both the backfield and
line favored the Ohioans. Cincin-
nati's line averaged 208 pounds to
State's 200 while the Bearcat back-
field shaded the Spartans', 194 to
185.
The Spartans were expected to
answer the opening whistle with sev-
en lineup changes from the eleven
which started the last home game
against Mississippi State here two
weeks ago.
DETROIT, Oct. 25-(P)-Jamming
across three touchdowns within four
minutes in the last half, University
of Detroit whipped Drake 33 to 6
here tonight for its fifth football
triumph in six starts-five in inter-
sectional games.

I-M PORTVOLIO
Into the touch football spotlight of the I-M program step Williams
and Lloyd Houses, who battle for the championship of the West Quad at
4:15, Monday on Ferry Field.
Responsible for Williams House's advancement to the finals are back-
field man Fancett and lineman Hanzlik. Besides directing the plays of
the squad from the quarterback slot, Fancett has carried the ball over for

a couple of touchdowns and then4
kicked the extra points. Since anyone
is eligible to receive the pigskin in
touch, Hanzlik, a powerful guard,
has managed to snare two passes
which were good 'for alditional Wil-
liams House points.
The all-campus tennis tourney
field has narrowed down from 60
hopeful aspirants to four quarter-
finalists, two semi-final contestants
and one definite final entry, Ben
Durfee. A student in the law
school, Durfee proved that his
abilitz rests not only in a court of
law, but also on the tennis courts
where he has survived the grueling
elimination process. In his semi-
final round Durfee dropped John
Hancock, 6-3, 6-3, and earned the
right to meet the winner of the
Bob Skau and Bud Herron match.
While touch football and the ten-
nis tournament are reaching their
closing stages, plans are now under
way for the handball, volleyball and
