Polish Government Delivers Mild Note
To Russia Demanding That Territorial
Menace In Soviet Treaty Be Removed

(By Associated Press)
WARSAW, Poland, Oct. 23. -The
Polish government today delivered to
Russia a note, which is understood to
be mild in tone, concerning the re-
cently signed Soviet-Lithuanian treaty.
The mildness of the note, Foreign
Minister Zaleski of Poland told news-
papermen tonight, is due to the fact
that Poland is too strong to get ner-
vous over such menaces to its ter-
ritory as is felt to be implied in the
Soviet-Lithuanian treaty.
The note simply states that Russia
gave up all land to the west of her
frontiers with Poland under the treaty
of Riga and agreed that the question
of the city of =Vilna should be settled
directly between Poland and Lithu-
ania. Lithuania, the note says, asked
the council of ambassadors to settle
this problem and Poland repeated this
request. Thus the decision of the

council on March 15, 1923, awarding
j Vilna to Poland is binding upon both
countries and cannot be questioned by
any international document concluded
with only one of the interested parties.
While discussing the Polish note
with newspapermen, M. Zaleski said
that Poland would continue to carry
on a peaceful policy in eastern Eu-
rope in spite of what are' felt to be
provocations and Soviet Russia. In
order to pacify the east of Europe, he'
said, Poland will be always ready to
sign a guarantee pact, but only a pact
equally guaranteeing all countries in
that section of Europe.
The minister of foreign affairs also
said that recent negotiations between
France and Germany contained no
menace for Poland. Of late, he added,
indications could be noted that Ger-
many's attitude toward Poland was
not so entirely negative as before.

Lloyd Recovers and Races 99 Yards
To Score Winning Touchdown
In Last Minute of Play
PASSES FEATURE GAME
(By Associated Press)
ANNAPOLIS, Md., Oct. 23.-The
flying form of Whitie Lloyd of Cam-
den, New Jersey as he raced 99 yards
with the pigskin under his arm after
a Colgate fumble in the last minute of
action signaled the doom of the Ma- -
roon today as Navy chalked up a 13
,to 7 victory on Farragut field. With 1
the score 7 to 6 against them almost
to the final whistle, the Middles fairly
snatched the victory from the air af-
ter repeatedly failing to get under the
Maroon goal in the third period.
Forward passes played a large part
in the offensives of both teams, al-
though neither was able to complete
more than 50 per cent of its aerial at-
tack. Colgate - completed eight out of1
16 forwards and Navy seven out of 14.
Colgate's best overhead offensive
was trained across the Middy line in
the second period, when Brewer scor-
ed the Maroon's touchdown. The com-
bination of Captain Mohler to Brewer
proved particularly effective.
Navy opened the scoring when Schu-
her and Ransford found Colgate's left
end vulnerable In the first period. End
runs with center' rushes, carried -the
ball 75 yards. Navy lost it on downs,
but a poor Colgate punt and a rush
by Schuber put it across. Hamilton
failed for the point after touchdown
with a dropkick, which,pafter Colgate's
score in the second period left Navy
one point in the rut, until a sensa-
tional run in the last period cleared
the slate.

(By Associated Press)-
WEST POINT, Oct. 23.-Army had
an easy time with Boston university
on the gridiron here today, winning
41 to 0. The Army regulars only
played at brief intervals. The Cadets
stopped the visitor's air attack with- I
out trouble and after that the Hub col-
legians had no other effective weapon.
Many Army reserve players were used,I
and particularly in the line where the
Cadet substitutes played effectively.
Army forward passed itself to two
of the six touchdowns scored. Boston
uiversity never was within scoring dis-
tance and was able to make but three
first downs, all of which came while
Army's third line of reserves were in

action.

Brown not only stopped the vaunted

(By Associated Press)
COLUMBUS, O., Oct. 23.-Ohio State
opened its Western Conference sea-
son here today with a 23 to 6; victory
over Iowa. It was the first time the
Buckeyes have trounced the Hawk-
eyes. '
Although the Iowans registered
twelve first downs to Ohio State's
eleven,, the Buckeyes by their versa-
tile attack and- "follow the ball" tact-
ics were able to outplay the western-
ers in every way.
"Cowboy" Kutsch was "corralled"
at the start of the game 'and never
once got away to a run of any dis-
tance. His passing was only mildly
successful but one of his heaves to
Byers, halfback, gave the latter an
open field to a touchdown.
Out of 16 attempted passes, Kutsch
completed five for a total of 74 yards;
eight were incomplete and three were
intercepted.
Nelson Clinton, Iowa tackle, was a
star performer for the Iowans, break-
ing up several threatening plays in
spectacular fashion.
Fred Grim, Toledo halfback, and
Capt. Karow, fullback, were the Buck-
eye stars.
Although both teams showed con-
siderable drive in the first period,
I neither was able to muster the
strength necessary to put across a
touchdown. A little later, mostly
I through Grim's running, Ohio had the
ball on the Iowa 10-yard line, where
Iowa's line held.
After the quarter ended, with a
scoreless tie, Kutsch made his one
spectacular run of the game, sweep-
ing left end for 22 yards. Ohio then
got the ball on its 42-yard line on
Kutsch's first punt and opened up a
passing game. Robin Bell dropped
back from end and threw the ball 10
yards to Grim who got away through
a clear field to a 50-yard dash for a
touchdown. Rowan, end, who played
a stellar game for the Buckeyes,
paved the way for the second touch-
down when he intercepted Kutsch's
pass and ran 25 yards to Iowa's 24-
yard line. Karow scored the touch-
down.

MOLENDA ALSO SCORES
Capacity Crowd Of 48,000 Fills Stands
As Undefeated Teams Line
Up For Kickoff
By Wilton Simpson
Uncanny catching of forward passes
and Friedman's spectacular field work
and place kicking were Michigan's
chief assets in defeating the powerful
University of Illinois 13-0, in one of
the greatest battles ever staged on
Ferry field yesterday afternoon. A
capacity crowd of 48,000 sectators
jammed into every inch of available
space.
Illinois, although she failed to score
on the Wolverines, displayed a fight
that cannot be measured py the final
score. From the outset, it could be
seen that the Yostmpn would not win
by a large margin. Both teams bat-
tled furiously in every quarter, neither
eleven being able to gain at will
through the line and being forced to
use the forward pass as the chief,
means of scoring power when within
striking distance of the goal.
Peters Makes Good Showing
Peters, the sensational halfback of u
the Indian eleven, made an impressive
showing, in spite of the fact that he
failed in each of his four attempts to
kick field goals from long distances.
Daugherity, Lanum, and Stewart were
serious threats throughout the battle
and bore watching during every min-
ute of the game.
Friedman, captain of the Wolverines,
led his team to victory with his bril-

Late in the second quarter, Michigan
was given an opportunity to score by
gaining an advantage on an exchange
of punts. After receiving a -punt in
midfield, Gilbert brought the ball to
Illinois' 25-yard line after twisting
his way through the Illini line. Fried-
man passed to Gilbert on the next
play and Gilbert made a spectacular
catch to complete the pass on Illinois'
9-yard line. After the Illinois line
bolstered so that the Michigan backs
could not gain on line plunges, Fried-
man dropped back to the 15-yard line
and kicked a field goal from a difficult
angle for the opening score of the
game.
Cook Enters Game
Cook, playing his first game in the
Big Ten Conference, paved the way
for the second Michigan goal. A long
forward pass, Friedman to Cook,
placed the ball on Illinois' 25-yard

line. Illinois' line refused to yield
to the Wolverines' line plunging, and
forced Michigan to try for a kick.
With Gilbert holding the ball, on Illi-
nois' 27-yard line, Friedman made a
perfect place kick, giving the Wolver-
ines another 3 point score.
In the final quarter, Lovette, Mich-
igan's right guard, intercepted Lan-
um's forward pass, on the Illinois' 23-
yard line. Oosterbaan furnished one
of the highlights of the game when he
snared Friedman's pass and struggled
