NEW STADIUM FIELD, Nov. 12-Michigan's fighting Wolver-
ine clan swept over the crew manning the ,U. S. Naval Academy gunboat
here this afternoon to pound out a victory before a crowd of 87,000 in
one of the most colorful of gridiron battles. Navy's mascot, his honor
the goat, and Biff and Bennie, the two live Wolverine mascots were in-
terested spectators at the headline intersectional contest in the West.
It was a perfect day for football and both teams put up a varied at-
tack in efforts to settle their grudge dispute. Navy unable to avenge the
54-O defeat on Ferry field two years ago fought desperately, but the

Large Crowd of Spectators at South
Ferry Field Witnesses the
Traditional Battle
Biting, clawing, and battering their
way to victory over the tender year-
lings, the sophomore class of the Uni-
versity took the measure of the green
smeared freshmen in the annual fall
games held this morning at South
Ferry field. The final score was 3-2
in favor of the class of '30, though
the not too decisive victory was gain-
ed only after one of the bitterest un-
derclass battles in years.
The verdant class of '31, more than
500 strong, was first on the field short-
ly after 9:30. The sophomores, after
keeping their opponents waiting in the
cold blasts of the field of combat for
about half an hour, strode on to the
scene at 10 o'clock, Both classes were
resplendent in their war paint-the
soplomores red and the freshmen
green, and both exhibited alleged
bands for the edification of the assem-
bled multitude, which numbered near-
ly 1,000 persons.
Sophomores Score First
The sophomores started with a rush,
and though outnumbered by more
than 100 men they swept through the
first two events in decisive fashion.
The first contest on the program, the
pillow fight, gave the second year men
their first point when four of the

-Another Point Added
This added another point to the
mounting total of the sophomores, and
gave them two out of the total of five
points. The last event on the pro-
gram was the flag rush, with the
freshmen defending three poles and
each flag counting one point. It was
only by artful guile that the sopho-
mores were able to gain the single
flag that spelled victory for them.
The trick that won the games for
the sophomores was a brilliant piece
of strategy. The freshmen gathered
around the three poles to defend the
flags, while the sophomores withdrew
to connive. Of a sudden a wave of
red sophomores, with terrific whoops
and cheers, swept down from the West
on the nearest pole.
The freshmen, guileless and Inno-
cent, hastened to the defense of the
besieged flag, and when their principal
forces had been drawn off of the other
two poles the main body of the sopho-
mores swooped down from the North,
