Fayette County Leader

Coach Dorman's U.I.U. Eleven Will Play at
Galesburg, Ill., In First Gridiron Contest of Season.
Galesburg, Ill., will be the scene of the first
game of the U.I.U. Peacocks, under Coach John Dorman's tutelage, on
Sept. 28, when they will rub elbows with the Lombard college eleven.
Thirty men reported for the opening practice. Seven of these are
letter men, and of these but four are candidates for line positions,
so it can be seen that linemen are going to be in strong demand.
Lammers of Elma, Johnson of Houston, Minn., Bates
of Arlington, and Moore of Clinton, Ind., are veterans of the line.
Others who show promise are Peick and Appleton of Edgewood, Lynch,
Fox and Chittenden of Fayette, Prescott of Plymouth, Shillinglaw of
Blairsburg, Horning of McGregor, and Davis of Randalia.
The situation is not so bad when it comes to
backfield men. Letter men who would be ball-totters are Capt.
Summers of Ft. atkinson, Kiple of Elgin and cushion of Arlington,
Sindelar, Ft. Atkinson, Gleason of Blairsburg, Earle and Pinch of
Fayette are others trying for backfield positions.

SOME PAVING BEING DONE
Some paving is being done at the north end of Main
street this week to fill out spaces between the end of the street
paving and the bridge. When primary No. 11 was paved the regulation
18 feet wide there was still a strip of triangular shape between it
and the sidewalk. This is now being filled in and a strip on the
other side of the street is being paved to match it. The property
owners are Central States Power Co. on the east side of the street
and A. J. Fox and W. A. Stranahan on the west side.
