Berivangers Light as Grid Star Obscured by Moderate Standing of His Team
JAY OUI OF FOCOS FOR ALL-AMERICA On a Leading Team, Chicago Back Would Stand Out Among Candidates. BY FRANCIS J. POWERS. CHICAGO, October 18.—If Jay Berwanger, halfback on the University of Chicago eleven, were lucky enough to be play ing with one of the country's lead ing elevens he would be an outstand ing candidate for all-America honors. As it is Berwanger is a great back on a good team and may be missed in the scramble for national honors. There's not much in the way of play ing foot ball this 195-pound Iowan cannot do. Last year when Chicago failed to win a major game Berwanger played all but Ave minutes of the Maroons' five championship games, a total of 295 out of a possible 300 minutes. His average of gains compared nicely with the work of Duane Purvis of Purdue and Pug Lund of Minnesota, the Mid dle West's two best ground eaters. But Berwanger was on a punk team. Bartlett a Big Help. THE big Maroon has started off at the same pace this Fall. He was tremendous against Mich igan and not only did he run well but also passed and kicked to any coach's taste. Chicago has its best team in a half dozen years and if the Maroons do manage to finish well up in the Big Ten Berwanger will come in for most of the credit. Berwanger is assisted this season by Ned Bartlett, a fast sophomore. Bartlett came all the way from Glen dale and would he be valuable to head man Howard Jones of Southern Cali fornia? He would indeed, and Trojan alumni let a good one slip right out of their own back yard when Bartlett came East to find higher education at Chicago. As husky as Berwanger, the new Maroon star was a long and severe pain to Michigan. He made two touchdowns against the Wolverines and threw a pass which set up an other score. Bartlett carried the ball only six times, but gained 70 yards on those expeditions and Lhat's more ground than eight Maroons usually gained in an afternoon. The Cali fornia boy has plenty of speed; he ge^s away fast and shakes slippery hips once he is in the open. The coming of Bartlett takes much of an opponent's attention away from Ber wanger and makes the Maroon attack double-barreled. Nyquist Breaks Trail. FLWALD NYQUIST, a junior, also is an important unit in the Maroon backfield. Nyquist is a great blocker and provides the as sistance needed to get Berwanger and Bartlett into the open. And in little Tommy Flinn, who weighs less than 150, Chicago has a smart quarter back. The combination of Ber wanger, Bartlet, Nyquist and Flinn is the best Chicago has had since the days of the Thomas Brothers and the time when "Five Yards" Mc Carthy specialized in ripping Big Ten lines to pieces. If Clark Shaughnessy's line can play up to the Maroon backfield, the Chicago team has a good chance to win its share of Bix Ten games, even though it has to meet Ohio State, Illinois and Minnesota. The Maroons are not yet of championship stature, but they are greatly improved over anything the midway has owned in many years. Foot ball interest is at fever heat around the gray gothic campus of Chicago University and the Maroons are on their way back to a place among Big Ten foot ball leaders. There are few seniors on the Chicago team, so Shaughnessy can lok forward to next year with much confidence. He may finish the job in 1935, which he has started so well this Fall. That job, of course, is to win a Big Ten championship. W hat's the Odds? BY JACK DOYLE, Nationally Known Betting Authority.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., October 19. —Angels would fear to tread Into the problem of picking the winner of the Tennessee-Ala bama game. Both teams have lost many vet erans since 1933, Tennessee more than Alabama. I saw Tennessee play Mississippi last Saturday, but have not seen Alabama this year. Both teams have great punters and great passers. Both have power and speed in the running game. Ala bama has shown more cohesion and more scoring power. Tennessee's squad is made up of fast, rangy, hard-hitting men with a great spark-plug In Moses—the kind that may lead you out of the wilderness any time during a game. Alabama has loet many fine for wards. I give Tennessee the shade be cause I think she will be a little more dangerous at the passing game.

PRINCETON, N. J., October 18. —One of the oldest of all foot ball rivalries will be renewed oil October 17, 1936, when Princeton and Pennsylvania meet on Franklin Field in Philadelphia. Announcement that arrangements for a single game had been made, terminating an estrangement that has lasted 40 years, came last night. Between 1876 and 1894 the two uni versities met 31 times, with Prince ton winning all but two of these games. Penn won, 6 to 4, in 1892 and 12 to 0 in 1894. after which relations were severed because of the "intense feeling of rivalry between the insti tutions, which would lead to undue roughness and engender more bitter feeling." The 1936 game will renew the fourth oldest rivalry of Princeton foot ball. Only the Rutgers, Yale and Co lumbla rivalries antedate that of Pennsylvania with the Tigers. Although no foot, ball game be tween the two schools has been played since 1894, the universities have been keen rivals In almost every other sport. Announcement of the 1936 game, even though the agreement was only on a one-year basis, was taken as further indication that the formal or ganization of a foot ball "Big Eight." Involving Princeton, Harvard, Tale, Dartmouth, Columbia, Cornell, Penn sylvania and Brown, was simply a matter of time. 20 YEARS AGO IN THE STAR "P ASTERN and Tech elevens will ·*■"' clash tomorrow at old Union League Park in the opening game of the public high school foot ball championship series.
