For the secpnd straight season Michigan and Michigan

stadium gridiron into a quagmire, battled through four quar
gruelling football to a 0-0 deadlock in the Michigan bowl yes
More than 50,000 persons braved the rain and the cold rav
to see the annual battle between these two state institutions.
Their offenses rendered impotent by slippery, footing in th
stadium grass, both teams were forced to resort to straight f
and trust to breaks throughout. Consequently the long ex
battle between two sterling backfields that had been ma
through their late opponents almost at will was turned into a
game that was interspersed at times with brilliant bits of ind:

MADISON, Nov. 14.-(IP)-Ohio
State university earned second place
in the Big Ten by defeating a hard-
fighting Wisconsin team, 6 to 0, be-
fore aHomecoming crowd today.
The lone touchdown came late in
the first period when William Bell,
left tackle, fell on the ball behind
the Wisconsin goal, after Martin
Venner, left guard, had blocked a
Wisconsin punt.
CHAMPAIGN, Nov. 14-()-Chi-
cago defeated Illinois, 13 to 6, today.,
achieving its first victory over the
downstate team in nine years and
burying the Illini in the Western
Conference cellar.
The Maroons got all their points
at the close of the first half. Vin-
son Sahlin, of Chicago, and Stanley
Hamberg scored the touchdowns on
sprints and Wien place-kicked the
extra point. Stan Jansen, Illini
lineman, made his team's only,
touchdown when he fell on the ball
behind the Chicago goal early in
the second quarter.
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Nov. 14.-()-
Purdue defeated Iowa, 22 to 0, to-
day without much effort, although
the Hawkeyes threw up a stubborn
defense in the first half.
The Iowa line held the Boiler-
makers to one touchdown in the
first half, but the Purdue team fin-
ally solved the Iowa defense and
swept through the westerners easi-
ly. Line smashes by Purvis, Hecker,
and Horstman were the deciding
factors in the Purdue victory.
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 14.-(R)-
Minnesota ran rough-shod over
Cornell college of Iowa here today,
47-0, as the Gophers took a rest be-
fore meeting Michigan next week.

trouble in piercing the lighter Cor-
nell line at will, with Jack Manders
again showing the way to the rest
of the ball carriers.

CAMBRIDGE, Nov. 14.-()-The
undefeated Harvard football team
today was forced to extend itself

Blocked Kick in Early Part of
Game Is Deciding; Sloppy
Field Slows Play.
(Special to The Daily)
MADISON, Wis., Nov. 14-A block-
ed kick in the opening minutes of
play gave the Wisconsin Junior
Varsity football team a 6-0 victory
over the Michigan "B" eleven here
today, as the two teams battled in
a sea of mud under a heavy rain
that made the day fit for anything
but football.
The Badger's victory was decided
by the breaks of the game, one of
Lindsay's punts being blocked soon
after the opening kickoff and re-
covered, by Wisconsin on the Wol-
verines' five-yard line. In two at-
tempts at the center of the line
,Westedt took the ball over for the
only touchdown of the contest.
In the first minute of play Bob
Miller, one of the Michigan half-
backs, received a broken nose and
was replaced by Hazen.
Lindsay, playing his last game at
quarterback for the Michigan elev-
en, and Harry Stinespring, diminu-
tive halfback, were the outstanding
players for the Maize and Blue.
Both of these ball carriers showed
up well in carrying the ball and in
returning Wisconsin punts.
The vaunted passing attack of
Coach Courtright's eleven was prac-
tically useless in the sea of mud.
In addition to Lindsay, McCrath,
Michigan, tackle, was also playing
his last game in the uniform of the
Maize and Blue.
University Symphony

ATHENS, Ga., Nov. 14.-(iP)-Tu-
lane's powerful football team con-
tinued its march toward national
title recognition today by handing
Georgia its first defeat of the sea-
son to the tune of 20 to 7.
Fist fights along the sidelines
during the final period as thous-
ands of spectators encroached on
the playing field delayed the finish
of the game.
Don Zimmerman's passing, with'
the superior kicking and line play
of Tulane proved decisive. Passes
led to two of Tulane's touchdowns.
Georgia's only score came on ,the
most sensational play of the game,
a 60-yard pass from Homer Key to
Buster Mott.
Cornell March Ended
by Dartmouth, 14-0
HANOVER, N. H., Nov. 14.-()-
Dartmouth pushed Cornell from the
list of undefeated football teams
today with a score of 14 to 0.
Bill Morton's stellar passing, with
McCall on the receiving end, was
responsible for both Dartmouth
touchdowns. The first touchdown
came toward the end of the half
and the second early in the third
period. Cornell made drive after
drive into Dartmouth's territory
but failed each time to come within
scoring distance.

Panthers' Claw Cadets
in Onesided Game, 26-0
PITTSBURGH, Nov. 14. - ()P) -
Far outclassing their golden-hel-
meted opponents in every depart-
ment of play, the Pittsburgh Pan-
thers defeated Army, 26 to 0, today.
It was the first meeting on the
gridiron between the two schools.
Inability to solve Pitt's passing
attack caused the defeat of the
cadets. The high spot of the game
came early' in the second period
when Collins, Pitt end, completed
a long pass to Reider, the fast Pitt
back, racing 50 yards for a touch-
down without being touched.

The Weather Man must have
been peeved.
So the spectators at the game
yesterday afternoon thought as
they sat shivering and drenched
watching the mud-colored football
teams on the field. For this was the.
first time since State played Mich-
igan four years ago that he has let
it rain for more than five minutes
at a home Michigan football game.
True, it has snowed, hailed, and
blown, sleeted and even drizzled for
short periods during the many
games which have taken place in
