Savanna Comes Here To Tackle Community Big Ten Grid Notes CHICAGO — (AP)—The swarm of football scouts who are gather ing for the Michigan-Northwestern battle should have a happy a few' and printable time. QUlt* have been trailing the Wildcats and Wolverines since the season began but they didn't see anything b'u straight football. That's all Mlchi gan needed to whip Michigan State low a and wobbling Pittsburgh Northwestern didn't even need tha to run up W points on Kansas State and Wisconsin. But this Saturday t should be much different. The game is rated a tossup, a shoot-the- works scrap with each-squad trying jo protect its status among the na- Jon's undefeated and untied elevens Thus the scouts should, have a perfect setup for their work. The spies doubtless will return to their home with crowded notebooks and multitude of diagrams. This won't do Minnesota and Ohio State, also undefeated and untied any harm in preparing for their Oct !5 engagements — Minnesota vs Michigan and Ohio State v«. Northwestern. Minnesota, meanwhile, will be playing Pittsburgh, presumably another romp for the Gophers and a washout for the Michigan scouts at Minneapolis. Ohio State oppose* Purdue at Coliunbus, a game which possibly might give the Buckeyes a real test. Michigan may open the all-important game with the Wildcats dth two sophomore halfbacks. Tom Kuzma at left and Paul White at ight half. White has been out two weeks with an injury but now Is •eady to ramble on ills favorite play — the : reverse. But .it is quit*' likely that Northwestern'* fiecond-string left halfbitck. .Otto Graham, will outshine bo^h of them. Graham has scored five touchdowns In two games, great i>owe.r and fineue as a runner and talent. «LS^»' passer and kicker. The third Big Ten game Saturday will pit Iowa. against Wisconsin at Modison.

Bill Ofcland, Northwestern end, never played Coach Pete Laffey's Community high, footballers will meet another strong opponent Saturday afternoon when Savanna high comes here for a game. It will be played at 2 o'clock at the Community athletic field on West Seventh street. Savanna comes here with a clean slate and Community has but one dark mark on the record. Savanna boasts on one of the best teams in the history of the school It is practically a veteran outfit^md has plenty of speed and weight.— Community has been working hard to get into condition for this game and every one is in fairly good condition and read}' to go. The officiating will be Handled by Carlson* of Clinton. Underwood of Dixon, and Hayes of Morrison. uowling Roundup of Sports By Hugh Fullerton, Jr. NEW YORK — (Special) .— Arkansas U., which, admits being in the Southwest conference doghouse, is aiming to outdo the other six by signing up 1,500 volunteer coaches— at rates from $1 for end coaches to $25, or what have you, to be a coach of the "wolks" . . . And then, says Drum Healer Johnille Fitter, WHltli »ur fur fly" .... Stan Benjamin, the Phillies' outfielder. Is keeping in snap* this fall by helping Coach Framingham (Maas.) high, where he was grid captain in 1932. Take-a-chuige dept.—Judging by last week's results, the best football pick this time would be to pick a seat in the last row and keep quiet . . . But* with utter abandon we'll take Villanova over Baylor for tonight's shot in the dark and Navy over Cornell, Nebraska over Indiana, Northwestern over Michigan, Columbia for a longshot against Georgia, Duke over Colgate, Texas Christian over Uk> Aggie* and San^a Clara over Michigan State for the Saturday toughlea . . . No questions, please. ' . Give him the bird—Nile Kinnick. thf last guy to beat the Gophers, was" scouting Minnesota for Iowa Saturday. When he spotted Don Griffin, Illinois sophomore star, »»e remarked: "I know just how he feels. Going into your first conference game you feel a flamingo fluttering in your stomach" . . .-Boane- one reminded him that Griffin had to break in against Minnesota, and Nile corrected himself—"make it two flamingos." The old school try — When the GafeBburg (111.) high school "Pony" team scored a touchdown against Mollne last Saturday, Fullback Don Williams tried a line plunge for the point and didn't make it ... But Moline was offside and he got another ciiance . . . That time Galesburg had'a man in motion and was set back five yards ... On the third effort Williams mtsaod connections on a pass but Moline again was offside . . . Finally WiUiaai ran the end and fa.iled to score. Moline won the game. 14-f. FRANTZ MFG. CO.

Sterling, drfrnding the North Central Illinois conference championship, has one victory In as many conference Marts and Princeton dropped a tough encounter at. De Kalb la*t weekend. Both teams are very anvioti* for victory- and it should prove an Interesting contest.. The Trosh-soph teams of the two schools meet In the preliminary at 6:45 and the main game at 8:15. The record for the season discloses that Sterling has won two and lo«t two and the boys are anxious to gain the advantage with a win over the strong Princeton club. Princeton also has a two and two record for the season so it looks like a ball game from any angle. Coach Tfd Scheid expect* to une the same lineup that started against Belvldere. This starting combination has performed creditably. Jt allows him to send in first string reserves to get experience after a lead has been established or the ball is in a favorable position. The Princeton fresh-soph* are said to be the fastest in the conference and that is a notice served on the Sterling boy* that they will have to be on their toes all the time.

Nearly all the player* both in the National league and in the minors in this country are Canadians and ail the measures which affect them in their homeland therefore reach out and touch the hockey addicts in the United States.

"I'd like to have a day like that and maybe I can," "Vike said. "I always was a slow starter, but those two games under the belt have toughened me up so maybe Indiana will have reason to remember Vlke like they do Sam. -But maybe we hadn't ought to wait until Indiana gets nine point* ahead before we start tome scoring of our own; in fact.
