This standard avenge last year's 20-13 upset by Illinois at Champaign. Minnesota could rebound against Michigan but this is the battle for the "Little Brown Jug" and no team redly has an advantage. The winner in this contest probably will have a lot to say about championship. Iowa should skip past North- western, but then anything can happen, and the Ohio State-Wisconsin battle should prove which of these two teams has a right to contend. The Buckeyes are undefeated in conference play while Wisconsin's young Badgers put up ClVlC a good fight in bowing to Iowa. Notre Dame returns to action Saturday and engages Pitt at South Bend while Marquette's winless Warriors take on Texas Christian with little hope for their first triumph of the season.

Later he was in the quebec Hockey League where he was deemed "ready" for the National League. Maurice joined the Montreal club in 1942.

Two days after his suspension angry Canadien followers staged a riotous uprising in the Montreal Forum and physically assailed Clarence Campbell, league president, for his action. Richard's years in the NHL have not, however, been without their rewards. His salary is in the neighborhood of $25,000 a year. When he tallied his 400th goal, the Canadien management presented him with a bonus of $2,000.

"There's no way you c«n really explain ft team getting beaten as badly as we were Saturday," Warmath said. "It might be that Illinois IB that good a football team, one that can play high caliber football consist ently. But they hadn't done It before and only time will tell whether they've jelled now." The Gophers face the prospect of meeting Michigan without two of their most dependable players, quarterback Dick Larson and tackle Frank Youso. Larson Injured his ankle early in the Illinois game and never returned. Youso, who insisted on starting despite two impacted wi« dom teeth and an attack of flu, also went out early. The big fellow was hospitalized on the team's return Saturday night. Larson is expected to be out for two Weeks and Youso's status for the Michigan game is highly doubtful.

Dale Smith went over for the fourth and Haller passed to Ron Hill for the fifth before Illinois sent in its deep reserves. It wasn't until then that the Gophers got into the Scoreboard, Cox passing to Dave Lindblom for one touchdown and Jim Reese to Jerry Friend for the other.
