Third Touchdown Comes As Result
Of Blocked Punt And 40
Yard Pass
(By Associated Press)
MADISON, Wis., Oct. 27.-It took
29 years for aWisconsin football
team to defeat Michigan, but the
Badgers gave the Wolverine a dou-
ble setback, for while the varsity
was winning, the Badger B's passes
bared the way to a 19 to 0 victory
over the Wolverine reserves here
this afternoon.
All three touchdowns came from
passes, two being tallied in the first
quarter and the other in the sec-
ond period. During the last half,
the Badger B's buzzed around with
their advantage and held the Wol-
verine reserves.
Pury Oman, sophomore halfback,
and Ed. Ziese, an end,, were the
spark plugs in the -Badger touch-
down engine, Oman hurling the
passes to Ziese.
The first touchdown came on a
pass from Oman to Ziese. Soon
after, the.Badgers blocked Hughes'
punt and Oman shot a 40-yard pass
to Ziese, who scampered 15-yards
for a touchdown. Mansfield missed
both tries for a goal. In the second
period a pass, Sheehan to Zeise,
scored. Rottman kicked goal.
Geistert, diminutive quarterback
of the Wolverines, starred for the
visitors, his running and passing
featuring the Michigan attack.

A serious accident and possible
fatalities were averted early yes-
terday morning by quick thinking
upon the part of the engineer on
one of the Wisconsin specials cor-
ing to Ann Arbor. The special did
collide with a freight train but the
quickness of the engineer saved
severe costs on the passenger train.
The special bound for Ann Arbor
and containing Wisconsin support-
ers was a few minutes late when
the accident occurred. Running at
50 miles per hour, the train struck
a freight which the engineer had
thought safely on a siding. When
he saw the crash was imminent, he
set the' brakes and reversed. At
the impact, the engine fell one way
and the baggage car fell the other,
the remainder of thecars holding
to the track. The engineer went
with his engine, but was unhurt.
The fireman jumped and was

slightly hurt.
The train waited three hours for
another engine, then detoured over
Pennsylvania and New York lines
to reach here in time for the pas-
sengers to reach their seats before
the game.

Details Of Colorful War Career As
Modern Buccaneer To Feature
Von Luckner Speech
With the largest seat sale in the
history of the Oratorical associa-
tion lecture series already realized,
Count Felix von Luck ner the f a-
mous "Sea Devil," will speak Thurs-
day night, November 1, in Hill audi-
torium as the opening number of
the 1928-1929 course.
Because of the very fine hu-
manitarian motives that actuated
his highly colorful career as a sea-
raider during the war, Count von
Luckner has emerged from the
world conflict as one of its best
known and most beloved heroes.
Count von Luckner was the my-
sterious "Sea-Devil" who brought
terror to the hearts of allied mer-
chantmen in the South Seas dur-
ing 1917-1818. He was in command
of the "Seeadler," a German sailing
vessel that captured and sank 17
ships of the Allies. These boats,
were captured, the crews were tak-
en from them and the vessels were
sunk, without injury-in even theI
slightest degree-to any of thel
hundred prisoners taken.
A Romantic Buccaneer

Plays Great Game
Against Wisconsin

By Morris Quinn
Michigan's great bid for a comeback fell short of the mark
by the narrowest of margins yesterday afternoon when the scrap-
ping Wolverine eleven lost a heart-breaking 7-0 decision to a Car-
dinal-clad Badger team that scored its first victory over Michigan
in 29 years. It was one of the most closely contested battles ever
waged between these traditional rivals. In spite of unfavorable
weather conditions it was estimated that approximately 65,000 saw

until the final quarter was all but
over that the B a d g e r s finally
managed to put across their only
touchdown after being outplayed
by a wide margin during most of
the second half.
The determined Maize and Blue
team fought a great fight, one of
the greatest that a Michigan team
has ever fought. Three times in
the first half a dogged defense
turned back the thrusts of the fast
Badger backs almost in the shadow
of the Michigan goalposts. And
then the Wolverines came back to
completely over-shadow the efforts
of their rivals in all except a few
minutes of the closing period.

Medical Honor Society
To Hold Charity Drive
Galens, junior honorary society
of the medical school, are now
making plans for their annual
drive for the crippled children at
the University hospital. Each year,
this organization has made a drive
on campus to obtain money for a
Christmas party for the children
who are confined over the holiday
in the hospital.
In the past, the drive was con-
ducted entirely within the medical
school, but in recent years has been

commented in a signed statement
on the coming of "Porgy," saying
that, "The enterprise and fore-
thought of the Ann Arbor Alumnae
in bringing "Porgy" to this city is
deserving of all the support that
can be given them. They are both!
giving the city an opportunity to
see one of the leading plays of the
year, and they are carrying for-
ward in their usual successful man-
ner a cause in which we are all
deeply interested."
"Porgy" concerns the lives and
problems of certain Negroes and is
involved with the emotional up-
dwellings of the stifled Negro nat-
ure. Frank Wilson, who plays the
leading part, has gained consider-
able fame for his unusual perform-
ance of the title role.
The play was staged by Rouben
Mamoulain, a young Russian-Ar-
menian who had been in America
but two years. The settings of Cat-
fish Row are authentic, being done
by Cleon Throckmorton after a
visit to Charleston, S. C., the locale
of the play, last summer.
Genuine spirituals will be render-
ed by the company as they are
given in the South. Then a real
orphanage band from the Jenkins
Orphanage, Charleston, S. C., will
be led by a young musician who is
a master of native fhythms.
"Porgy" has been hailed by critics
as a play of intense thrilling and
haunting beauty, a stirring bit of
mysterious actuality..

Missed G o a I Decides
I o w a-Gopher Contest
IOWA FIELD, Iowa City, Ia., Oct.
27.-Iowa defeated Minnesota, 7 to
6, before a frenzied crowd of 30,000
home-coming spectators today.
After three scorless periods Min-
nesota passed over with a touch-
down early in the fourth, with
Iowa counting a few seconds later.
Hovde, the Minnesota baokfield
star, picked up a punt on his nine-
yard line and raced 91 yards for
a touchdown. Drockmeyer, how-
ever, failed to kick the goal, and on
the first play after the kickoff, Pate,
substituted sophomore halfback,
swarmed away from the Minnesota
team and raced 62 yards for the
tying score. Nelson's drop kick de-
cided the issue.

The contest will stand as a splen-
did tribute to the gameness of
Michigan football teams for all
time, and every loyal Maize and
Blue fan should feel proud of the
Wolverine team even in defeat.
With only a minute and a half
to play, Wisconsin's famed short
passing attack flashed momentar-
ily and Bo Cuisinier, .diminutive
Badger quarterback seized a pass
from Sammy Behr that almost
grazed the fingers of Joe Truskow-
ski and raced to a touchdown and
victory behind perfect interference
that cleared away the Michigan
In playing the ball instead of the
man on this play, Truskowski show-
ed good football sense, if he had
made good in his attempt to inter-
cept the pass, a Michigan touch-
down would have probably been
the result because there was no
one between him and the Badger
goal. As it was, however, his effort
fell short by inches and the ball
settled into the hands of Cuisinier.
Show Offensive Power
Statistics for the contest reveal
that Michigan flashed real offen-
sive power for the first time this
season, and that they held a de-
cided edge over their rivals during
the last half. The Wolverines to-
taled 64 yards from rushing com-
pared to 14 for Wisconsin in these
closing quarters, and outgained the
Badgers 93 yards to 87 in the air.
After an exchange of punts at
the start of the contest, the Michi-
gan backfield gave a brief indica-
tion of the aggressiveness that was
to become more apparent later in
the game by scoring three first
downs within a short space of time.
Faking a punt, Wheeler passed to
Rich, who ran to Wisconsin's 35
yardline before he was downed.
Another exchange of punts foun~d
Michigan in possession of the ball
in mid-field. Rich made three off
tackle, Wheeler added one more,
and then a five yard penalty for
offside and Gembis' smash result-
ed in another first down. A pass,
Truskowski to Gembis, made nine
yards and another line buck gave
Michigan her second successive
first down.
This ended the Wolverine threat
during the first half and the re-
mainder of the periods found them
on the defensive, relying on the
trained toe of Jack Wheeler to keep

Stadium Echoes With Cheers Inspired -
By Wolverines' Rubber-Wall Defense

Several things happened at the
game yesterday. Most notable
Michigan spirit awoke with a bang
when Wisconsin bounced back-
wards off a hard rubber wall on
Michigan's four yard line, and
made the stadium echo as it has
seldom echoed throughout the rest
of a game.
Then the Wolverines uncorked
their first offensive of the season
when Truskowski blocked a punt
and proceeded to thrown completed
