Plays Title Roll


Announces Decision Afier Spectacular
Final Appearance In Memorial
Stadium At Columbus
(U Associated Press)
COLUMBUJS, 0., Nov. 21.-Red
Grange, that flaming boast of the grid-
iron, dropped behind the intercollegi-
ate football horizon today, leading
his "fighting Illini" to a 14-9 victory
over Ohio State before 85,500 specta-
tors, the greatest throng, with one ex-
ception, that ever witnessed a football
game in America.
Within five minutes after he had gal-*
loped off the gridiron his face still
steaming with the heat of battle, the
famous 22 year old hero of football
told the world what it could expect
of him in the future. He made the
definite announcement that he would
enter the ranks of professional foot-
ball, that he would immediately leave
the University of Illinois, and that he'
would manage and organize his own
Will Sign Britton

Grange made known his plans for
the future as soon as he reached his
dressing room with at least 50 news-
paper men trailing him. He said his
team probably would include Earl
Britton, his co-star on the Illinois
eleven and one of the shock troops in
forming interference, and certain
members .of- the- famous "four horse-
men" that made football history at
Notre Dame a year ago.
Grange's first professional game
probably will be in Chicago on
Thanksgiving day.
The redheaded youngster, winding
up the most amazing career the game
hae ever known, finds himself in a
position to earn a fortune playing
professional football, appearing in
moving picture serials and engaging
in other business enterprises. The
contracts under which Grange will
appear in professional games make it
possible for him to earn from $10,000
to $20,000 for, every appearance.
Si,500 See Game
The stage setting for Grange's last#
appearance as a college player was a!
picture for a master artist to conceive
85,500 persons encompassed the green,
chalk lined gridiron of the Ohio sta-
dium, a living wall of thunderous hu-
manity, vocally and mentally urging
the famous redhead to get away on
his thrilling runs. The Ohio stadium,j
a huge, double decked horseshoe af-l
fair, was packed from top to bottom
and thousands were turned away.
It was the second largest crowd
ever to witness a football game in
America, and perhaps the largest ever
in point of paid admissions. The larg-
est was at Berkeley, California, a year
ago, when it was claimed that 90,000
persons saw the battle between Stan-
ford and the University of California.
Not all of these, however, were within
the stadium as several thousand were
perched on a hill on the outside.
End In Blaze Of Glory
Grange, although failing to score a
touchdown, finished his career blaz-
ing in full glory and, through a
strange stroke of fate, was running
with the ball, participating in the final
play of the game as the pistol barked,
ending the contest and his spectacu-
lar intercollegiate career.
Grange in today's game figured in
21 plays from scrimmage gaining143
yards, twice getting away for spec-
tacular runs that brought the crowd
cheering to its feet in a frenzy of
excitement. Once he got away on a
run of 36 yards before he was chased
out of bounds. His other outstanding
efforts was a darting dash of 25 yards
that started out with the possibility
of a long run for a touchdown.
Grange started towards the side lines
then cut back and attempted to pick
his way through the Ohio defense,
but after shaking off a half dozen
tacklers he was brought to earth
while the crowd settled back in breath-
less excitement.
Grange, by his performance today,

Debussy, You Weber, And Tschaikov-
sky Are Among Those On Program.
At l1ll Auditorium
Ossip Gabrilowitsch, world famous
on two scores as one of the most sym-
pathetic and artistic pianists of his
time, and conductor of the Detroit
Symphony orchestra, which organiza-
tion he has built up to its present ad-
mirable reputation, will appear as
soloist with his orchestra in the third
concert of the Choral Union series to-
morrow night.
Mr. Gabrilowitsch has often been
heard in this city in recitals, but his
appearances as soloist with an or-
chestra have been too seldom. His
concert in the opening evening of the
last May Festival marked his second
appearance here in that role, and he
was greeted with furious applause
seldom accorded a musician.
Will Play Concertq
Tomorrow he will play the magnifi-
cent "'Emperor"'Concerto inE EFlat
by Beethoven. In this composition,
Beethoven seems to have expended his
greatest effort, and in its grand bom-
bast and intrinsic splendor it can
hardly be equalled by any thing in
musical literature. It was played by
Harold Bauer at the Festival two
years ago with splendid effect.
The concert will open with the
Overture to the Opera Euranthe by
vn Weber which calls into play all
the resources of the organization, to
be followed by the Concerto with Os-
sip Gabrilowitsch.
Nocturnes Of Debussy
Nocturnes of Claude Debussy, con-
ceived with all the delicate and elu-
sive fancy of the interestingly fragile
Frenchman will follow and the con-
cert will be brought to a close with
a Tschaikovsky arrangement of Ital-
ian folk-songs many of which the
composer heard in Naples and Rome
where the work was done.
The Detroit organization is making
only two appearances in this city this
year, the second to be on March 8
when Mr. Gabrilowitsch will conduct
the orchestra himself. It is' an or-
ganization, which, though compara-
tively young, has attained high rank
in the world. Victor Kolar, assistant
conductor will lead the symphony to-

Senator Couzens Prepares Report Of
house Ways And Neatns Committee
Regarding Federal Revenues
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. - Wide
spread powers on investigation of the
administration of the income and
other federal taxes would be given
a select committee under terms of the
revenue bill being prepared by the
House ways and means committee.
An exhaustive investigation already
has been conducted into the adminis-
tration of the internal revenue bureau
by a special Senate committee and a
report is now being written by Chair-
man Couzens, Republican, of Michigan.
Proposing many changes in the law
as a result of the investigations, Sena-
tor Couzens has declared he will seek
their adoption at the coming session.
The committee which the House mem-
bers would appoint, however, would
not be required to report until Jan.
1, 1927.
This committee would be composed
of 15 members named by the President
and would include five members of
the h-ouse, five members of the Sen-
ate, and five outside experts. It would
serve without pay. Chairman Green
expects the ways and means commit-
tee to complete its draft of the tax
reduction bill early next week in
plenty of time for its presentation to
the House when Congress' convenes

By Joseph Kruger
Two great elevens, contending for
the highest honors on the Western
Conference gridiron, clashed yesterday
afternoon at Ferry field, and when the
final whistle sounded, the brilliant
Yost-coached eleven, rising to its
greatest heights,'remained supreme in
Big Ten circles, the highly touted
Minnesota team being completely an-
nihilated by a 35-0 score.
Smashing through the line, tearing
around the ends, and completing for-
ward passes with almost utter aban-
don, the Wolverines threatened to
score on the bewildered Gopher in-
vaders during the entire 60 minutes
of play.
entering the final contest of the sea-
son with the Big Ten title hanging in
the balance, the Wolverines carried
on a relentless attack that swept the
Minnesota defense before them, and
each quarter found at least one Mich-
igan player crossing the Minnesota
goal line with the ball safely tucked
in his arms.
Visitors Held Powerless
Never letting up in its drive, the
Wolverine eleven, even when substi-
tutes filled its ranks, kept the ball
deep in Minnesota territory, and, only
on two occasions did the visitors sue-
ceed in getting possession of the ball
beyond the 50 yard line, twice gett-
ing as far as Michigan's 42 yard line
during the final five minutes of play..
And in the wake of yesterday's
brilliant victory comes the complete
vindication of the claim that Michigan
boasts the greatest line in the coun-
try, for it is to the seven men who
comprise the Wolverine forward wall
that the bulk of the credit for the
Minnesota defeat must go.
Michigan Linemen Star
The names of Oosterbaan, Flora,
Edwards, Hawkins, Baer,. Lovette and
Brown will go down in Michigan foot-
ball history as one of the greatest
sets of linemen to ever take the field
for the Maize and Blue. * Each and
every one of these men was a star
in himself, each covered himself with
glory in yesterday's combat.
Holding the Minnesota eleven to
three first downs, and aiding their
own backs to account for 11 first
downs, and never allowing the Goph-
ers to get into any kind of scoring
{ position, the Wolverine lIne was su-
perb in every phase of line play.
While the lion's share of the credit
must be given to the line, the Wol-
verine backs must also be given their
due, for the quartet of backs did
everything that any backfield is ex-
pected to do.
Molenda Smashes Line
Bo Molenda took the ball from cen-
ter on 17 occasions, and each time the
Gopher line simply melted before his
fierce thrusts, the great fullback ac-
counting; for Michigan's first two
touchdowns, and a total of 115 yards
from scrimmage.
Louis Gilbert, until today confining
his value to the eleven to his kicking
i ability and general defensive play,
1blossomed forth as a great runner,
squirming, twisting and pivoting his
way through the Gopher team for long
gains time and again. Ile was respon-
siblo for Michigan's second score
when he made a beautiful run through
the entire Minnesota team for 20
yards, bringing the ball to the one
yard line, from where Molenda carried
it over.
In the closing minutes of play, Gil-
bert intercepted a Gopher pass and
raced 65 yards down the sidelines for
a touchdown.
Passing Game One-Sided
Michigan threw 15 passes, complet-
ing seven, two of which directly re-
suited in touchdowns by Oosterbaan.
Minnesota attempted 10 passes, and
failed to complete a single one. Mich-

igan intercepted four of the passes
while the other six were incomplete.
