Communication is Enroute to France;

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.-The Amer-

with the French, sixth in the series
between the two countires, was on its
way to Paris today and will be de-
livered to the foreign office Monday by
the American embassy.

It was learned authoritively tonight
that the new American Paris note does
not contain any suggestion of pro-
-posals not already brought out in the
exchanges with the French war office.
Presumably it is confined to the state-
ment of the American attitude in con-
nection with conditions discovered in
the last French note, which were said
to make their communications unsat-
isfactory to the workings of govern-
ment. Further examination gave a
more favorable outlook that the new
note will serve to clean up, it is said,
any doubt that may still exist as to
the true significance of the French
conditional statement.

vanced pledges from the United States

themselves to be a remarkable offen-
sive combination. Passes, Ooster-
baan to Giblert, were directly respon-
sible for all of the three touchdowns,
scored by Michigan.
This reverses the famous combina-

proved himself to be the most accurate

Gilbert not only .proved his ver-

himself running back punts as well as
making several long runs through a

Victory Avenges String Of Defeatst
Pennsylvania Has Haned 1
Stagg Teams1
By Charles W. Dunclay, Associated-
Press Sports Writer".
CHICAGO, Ill., Oct. 23-Amos Alon-
zo S'tagg, dean of American football'
coaches, saw his dream of 30 years
crowned with success today when his
maroon jerseyed warriors conquer-1
ed Penn 15 to 7 before 55,000 spec-a
The4victory avenged,attleast for,
this 64 year- old football teacher, a
string of defeats Pennsylvania has,
handed his team.
Stagg ,the "old man" of the grid-
ironasent an inspired crew of foot-
ballers against Pennsylvania today.
Th.ere was an efectiveness and trick-
ery in the Chicago attack in ad-
vancing the ball through the line, and
Stagg's backfield aces pass}:d ;and
passed and passed until the bewilder-
ed Pennsylvanians became dizzy un-
der the barrage. It was the first time
in the memory of the oldest maroon
admirers that Stagg sent forth a
team equipped with so effective a
forward pass attack.
Chicago, threatening and dangerous
from the very first play until the last,
scored a touchdown in the second per-
iod and another in the third by beau-
tiful passing. Starting from the
Pennsylvania '47 yard line in the sec-
ond period, Stagg showed the eastern-
ers some hidden ball formations of his
own, when Leyers, who had replaced
Burgess at full-back for Chicago, gain-
ed 12 yards on two effective pivot
plays through tackle.
Then the maroon opened up with
passing, shot from Anderson to Men-
denhall, running for 14 yards, with
Mendenhall carrying to Penn's 31
yard line before he was checked.
Then to make the situation more
confusing the Maroons started some
triple passing. Leyers took the ball
from center and feinted a plunge at
the line, turned and tossed the ball
back ten yards to Mendenhall who in
turn shot it forward to Anderson, who
was brought down on Penn's six
yard line. After striking center for
a yard, Mendenhall was given the
ball a second time and crashed
through left tackle for a touchdown.

quite in the scheme of things.
Ohio's 110 piece band was first on
the field at 2:15, with its scarlet and
gray uniforms and the white spats.
Then Michigan's maize and blue capes
emerged from under the east stand,
and while the crowd rose and roared
its applause the wolverine organiza-
tion opened the ceremonies with a
blare of a trumpet.
Then, the alumni entered and fol-
lowed the bands on a parade around
the field. With them were the nota-
bles present, including several gov-
ernors and former football stars. With
the alumni also were the two real
live wolverines, "Biff and Benny."
Then the first 20 men of the Michi-
gan team entered, and another round
of cheers volleyed from the throat1
of the stadium. Ohio's team entered,
which was the 4ignal for the pennant
wavingaroot ersfrom Columbus to
whoop and cheer in the most ap-
proved Ohio State manner.
Four airplanes zoomed overhead;
the bands spasmodically competed to
see which could play "Hail, Hail"' with
the fastest tempo (It was a draw);
the sun smiled congenially as the pun-
ters thudded the pigskins in their
warming up drills; the Ohio State sec-
*tion sang "We don't give a darn for
the whole state of Michigan;" and the
wolverines tknawed at thei steel bars
in a vain attempt to be out with their
vicious cohorts on the field.
Finally the officials came, and two
former women students at Michigan
and Ohio carried giant boquets out
before the battery of cameras. There
they posed with a football player
apiece, and having satisfied the news
reels retired to the sidaiiELs. Then
the kickoff-and the game-but that
is another story.
During the game Michigan's cheer-
ing section had its first chance to
perform effectively, and though the
seating arrangement made somewhat
of a mess of the "M" itself it was all
forgotten when Gilbert flashed across
the Ohio goal line for the first touch-
down, and amid the delirious bedlam
the flying cardboard cards of the
cheering section made up for what-
ever other shortcomings it may have
had previously.
At the half the Michigan band was
somewhat outmaneuvered by Ohio's
aggregation, though both of the mu-
sicians' groups did excellent work.
The principal difference was that Ohio
could make a recognizable "OHIO"
while our own "MICH" looked remark-
ably like a mob scene. At the "M"
however, Michigan excels, and demon-
strated her excellence yesterday.
But it finally ended, and the Michi-
gan band had the chance again to
crash forth on the opening strains of
the "Victors;" and the 86,000 piled out
of the stadium. It was the official
opening 21 to 0.
Possible misunderstanding as to the
condition of Laverne Taylor, sopho-
more end who was injured in the Wis-
consin game, has been cleared up by
a statement from Doctor Hugh Cabot.
Taylor is not as seriously injured as
early reports have stated. Dr. Cabot's
statement follows:r
"There seems to be some misappre-
hension about the condition of La-
verne Taylor, '30. He was hurt in
the Wisconsin game. After his re-
turn to Ann Arbor a fracture of the
sixth vertabra in the neck was dis-
covered. There was but moderate dis-
placement of the fragments and no
serious symptoms.

The scoring opportunity for North-

this the Wolverines stationed a "sleep-
er" across the field and Oosterbaan
came back to pass. He worked a per-
fect deception by hurling the ball
straight down the field to Gilbert who
caught it on the 15-yard line and ran
across the goal line untackled for the
first touchdown.
Pass Again Works -
Jn the third quarter the Oosterbaan

came active. Afcr an exchange of
punts Gilbert's return put the ball on
Ohio's 40-yard line. Pucklewartz's
pass to Rich was incomplete and Ooos-
terbaan plunged through the line for
a yard. Then came another "'shoot to
kill" play by the senior members of
the firm. Practically duplicating the
first touchdown play, Oosterbaan,
standing in midfield, threw a tremend-
ous 48-yard pass to the same elusive
Louie who stumbled the remaining
two yards for the second score.
Hoffman, who had just returned to
the game, called on the venerable,
hoary-bearded, old reprobate of Yost's
"83" as a stimulant of the final touch-
down in the middle of the fourth per-
iod. After holding the ball on a fake
place kick by Gilbert, Hoffman picked
up the oval and scampered 29 yards
through the left side of where the
line had been to give the Wolverines
first down on the Bucks' 9 yard
