t CHAMPAIGN -Coach Ray Pilot's Illinois football team pits the nation's tenth best rushing ©ffeftse ftgaittst Mighty Ohio State at Columbus Saturday, and when Jirihg is. over, illini should have belter idea of how their entry will tare ill the Big Ten chase this season. Illinois, which tied Nebraska 21-21 and defeated Stanford 33-21 in pre-confetence tune -ups, is definite underdog against the Buckeyes, who are eyeing the Western Conference title and a trip to the Rose Bowl. Ohio State has already disposed of Indiana in a Big Ten tilt, and .whipped California last Saturday. Giving Illini hope for an upset is' a fleet backficld combination which features sophomore J. C. Caroline, fifth in the nation in rushing yardage, and first among backs who have played only two games. Caroline has gained 271 yards in 35 ball-carrying efforts for an average of 7.7 yards peltry. He also has a 35-yard runback of a kickoff. t J, C. won't be wanting for help in the running department, how ever. He'll be joined by fullback Stan Wallace, and sophomore Melvin "Mickey" Bates, who earned a first-team promotion with an excellent showing against Stanford last Saturday. Illini also hope that their passing offense, held to 166 yards in two games, will come into its own at Columbus. Senior Elry Falkenstein has been moved into the first-team quarterback spot after completing six of eight aerials against Stanford. He has a .667 throwing average for two games, and has ends "Rocky" Ryan and .Cliff Waldbeser, plus fast backs, ready to receive. With this promising offensive outfit available, Eliot has concentrated this week upon methods of stopping Ohio State's high-geared machine. , Freshmen, using Ohio Stale plays, provided competition for varsity defenders as Eliot attempted to plug leaks which yielded 42 points, 34 first downs, and 645-yards in the first two contests. Major concern is the secondary, since passing has accounted for 307 of yards permitted by Illini this season. Eliot plans no changes in his first team line. Ryan and Wald­ beser will handle the ends, Capt. Bob Lenzini and Don Ernst will be at tackle, Jan Smid and John Bauer at guard, and Herb Borman fit center. The second-team line shows Steve Nosek and Bob Wimarf at ends, Dick Kohlhagen and Pete Palmer at tackles, Wally Vernasco and Don Tate at guards, and Jack Chamblin at center. The backfield has Em Lindbeck at quarter, Don Grothe and "Bud" DeMoss at halfs, and place-kicker and punter Ken Miller at full. These 22 players will handle majority of the work against an Ohio State team which Chief Scout Leo Johnson described as the best Buckeye squad I've seen in many years." 7 i 1 J. GALESBURG, ILLINOIS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1953 PAGE J 4 STAN WALLACE Illinois Halfback Dad's Night As Streaks Face Peoria Paul Schissler Has Memories Of Casey Stengel LOS ANGELES W — Former football Coach Paul Schissler got an extra chuckle watching on television the New York Yankees win the World Series. Schissler recalled that he moved into Ebbets field in Brooklyn in the fall of 1935 to begin coaching the Dodger football team. The business manager said; "We had to let our manager go. Awful nice fellow. Everybody's feeling bad about him—so we'd kind^, like it if you'd let him use the office and desk with you until he gets himself straightened out." The "poor fellow" he'd been watching, winning his fifth straight series, was Charles Dillon Stengel. Quad Speedway to Run Final 50-Lap Race on Sunday Traditional 50-lap championship stock car race of the Devil Drivers at Quad City Speedway will he run off Sunday afternoon, with doubled points counting towards the final driver ratings the big lure. This will be the final 50-lap race of the season. And the Speedway figures the third time is the charm on the weather. The two previous 50-lappers—July 4th and Labor Day holiday shows—both had to be postponed because of bad weather. Time trials will be at 1 and first race at 2:30. The 50-lap event is being run this Sunday to make sure it's gotten in. There are two more Sundays in October on which the event can be held in case bad weather forces postponement. The Speedway plans to continue stock car racing through October, Slated for one of the final Sunday afternoons will be a demolition race, while another novelty feature will be staged on the other race date. The 50-lapper coming up could cause quite a shakeup in the battle It will be Dad's Night at Lombard Field Friday when the East Peoria Bed Raiders invade the home of the Galesburg Silver Streaks who hope to keep the victory starved visitors on the losing end of things for at least one more game. The Raiders have played two games to date and both times have failed to come out on the winning side of the ledger. However, their opponents in these two games happen to have been two of the tough* est teams in the state. They lost to the Pekin Chinks, 460, in the opener and dropped a 33-7 contest to Peoria Spalding last week. The Streaks haven't* been too potent themselves. Their only win for the current season was gained on a forfeit when it was learned that Peoria Central used an ineligible man in the season's opener. Galesburg then lost to Peoria Woodruff, 13*0, in the second game and fell to the East Moline Panthers, 32-19, last Friday. Friday night's game will be a Illini Conference affair. Both Galesburg and East Peoria are tied with Kewanee for last place, each team having suffered one loop setback.
