An account of the story taken from the Free Press is as follows: "This is not the story of the glory guys, the touchdown terrors or the headline heroes. "Rather, it is the story of two stout-hearted Wolverines who played an integral purt in Michigan's 20-0 victory over Illinois Saturday without being glorified in poetry and prose. "It is the story of Tackle Rube Kelto, a husky Finn from Bessemer, Mich., and Quarterback George Ceithanii, a sturdy Slovak from tho stock yards section of Chicago "Without wishing to detract from the feats of Capt, Bob Westfall. Tom Kuzma and Paul White, on of fense, any student of football would agree ttiat in Saturday's wind-blown scuffle in Champaign. Kelto and Cei- tliami should rate with the brightest stars of the day. That despite the fact that Messrs. Kelto and Ceithami were almost completely overlooked in most accounts of Michigan's fifth victory ot the campaign. "Firs'., let us considerd Kelto. It ever there was an under-rated football player, it Is this 198-pound tackle. All season he has been a steady performer on the right side of the line. He has been overshadowed for two years by the fierce and flashy playing of his fellow tackle, Al Wislert.
