»-TI>e Pharw-Trtbune. Loganspon, Ind. Purdue Faces Illinois Wednesday. October U, lt» WEST LAKAVKTTK - Two old enemies - Purdue <2-:i. 11-21 and Illinois 11-3. 0-2 > — ;irt- led inlo Saturday's k.'iu p.m. K.ST Hoss-Adc Stadium bailie by l\vo old friends (and the Bi« ten's two first-year head cnac'hesi the Boilermakers' Jim Young and the Illini's Gary Moellor. While assistant coaches together under Rn .Schnn- bechler at Miami nf Ohio for three years and four mntv at Michigan. Young and .Mueller became fast friends. "Gary is my best friend in coaching," Young offers, "htii that doesn't have anyjhiiifi to do with Saturday, ihnugh. Besides our time together with Ho. we both came from the same area of Ohio and knew each other before coaching together." "Jim's a good friend of mine and an excellent coach." Moellcr relates. "1 learned quite a bit from him when he- was defensive coordinator at Michigan." Considering Purdue's 4G-0 loss al Ohio Stale inst weekend and Illinois' ai-o defeat at Wisconsin, this week's affair looms as a "must" encounter if the dream of a winning season for cither team is to reach fruition. "Winning Hie Illinois game is essential if we are to have a winning season, which was our goal before the year and still is. The (earns are evenly matched, and I expect a hard-fought game. It has been u very close game over, the years." You/ig savs. ilnw right he is! While Illinois leads the all-time series 2lt-2-J-fi. no more than four points have separated the two geographic rivals in the last four encounters. The two have taken turns- spoiling each other's Homecoming the past two years. In 1975, present Purdue middle guard Roger Ruwc, now a senior, leaped off the hack of teammate (and present Baltimore Colt) Ken Novak to block a last-second Illinois field goal attempt in Purdue's thrilling 2K-2-I victory. Last fall, Illinois returned the favor 21-17 on the strength of two fourth-quarter touchdowns. the last coming with only 1:08 remaining on the clock. "Illinois runs an option attack similar to what Ohio Slate and Michigan are usinc." Youne opines. "Defensively, they use a five-two defense very much like Michigan, And. they are similar to us in that they arc using a lot of young players." The Boilermakers list 17 freshmen and sophomores in their two-deep depth chart again this week, Freshman offensive guard Steve Krol it>-l. 235, Chicago. III. i appears to ho a likely slarlcr. following a knee injury to regular John Finucan at Ohio Stale that will sideline him the rest of the season. Young's contention thai Boiler senior linebacker Fred Arrmgton may foe "the best in the Big Ten if not the country" will be challenged for the second consecutive Saturday. Lasi week it was Ohio State's Tom. Cousincau doing the interrogating: this week it will be Illinois' own cruncher. John Sullivan, who bench presses 450 r pounds and figures to break legendary Dick Butkus' Illinois record of :!"•! tackles before graduating. Arrington and Cousineau made tackles all over Columbus last weekend, and the Ft. Wayne, Ind. enforcer and Sullivan should show more of the same Saturday judging from their team-leading defensive statistics. Both lead their squads in tackles with KB (51 solos) and 91 i:j() solosi. respectively. ' '.. . Merrillville Back On Top INDIANAPOLIS (UP!) Merrillville regained first place today in the UP1 Indiana high school football Class AAA coaches' board ratings while Jasper and Lawrenceburg appeared to be solidly entrenched as leaders of their divisions. In balloting for games through last Saturday, Merrillville polled 5 of 12 first- place votes for ]Q9.poinLs while Evansvillc Reitz, the frontrunner the past four weeks, slipped to second with i)9. including two firsts. Carmel remained third for the fourth week in a row while Mishawakn climbed from fifth to fourth, swapping spots with Munstcr. The lower bracket "Big 10" was composed of South Bend Washington. Ben Davis, Ford Ploy Program NEW YORK (UPI) - The Ford Foundation has set aside $350,000 this year for Round 2 in its New American Plays Program, under which 30 to -<u theaters will receive subsidies •between $2,500 and S20.000 for producing new plays by American authors. , In the first round last year 89 theaters got up, to $7,500 apiece to stage first or second productions of new plays. Martinsville, Evansvillc North and Indianapolis Washington, in that order. The latter, winner of its last six games, made the elite for the first time. Reitz slipped to second following its one-touchdown victory over North in last Thursday's "game of the week." Fort Wayne Snider, yanked from the perfect ranks by city rival Northrop last Friday, was toppled from the lop 10. The top eight teams go into this week's play with 7-0 records. Jasper and Plymouth were 12 in Class AA for the seventh consecutive week. Jasper leading with 118 out of a possible 120 points. South Spencer, again third, is also still unbeaten. Lawrcnceburg kept pace with Jasper, leading Class A for the seventh week in a row, also polling 118 points.
