It was the first time Illini cheerleaders included coeds. Shown in action are, left to right, Marilyn Berger, Chicago; Mary Lou Schaeflein, Chicago; Dorothy Rich, Manteno; and Marilyn Loew, Springfield. Illinois gridders, backed with Illini cheers, defeated Ohio university [sic], 28 to 2, in the season's opener."
