DETROIT, Nov. 21.-(/P)-Michi-
gan State College went down to a
20 to 13 defeat before its traditional
rival, the University of Detroit, in
the final game of its 1931 season
on Dinan field today.
The effective checking of State's
stellar halfback, Bob Monnett, and
the raggedness of State's aerial at-
tack were contributing factors in
the defeat. Eliowitz scored State's
touchdowns, making the first after
five minutes of play. Parsaca pro-
vided the major thrill of the game
when he made an 80-yard run for
'the Titans' final touchdown in the
Both teams tried 14 forward
passes. Five of State's heavesrwere
intercepted. State intercepted one
Detroit pass. State's passes were
completed for a total gain of 24
yards as compared with 58 yards
gained by the Titan passers.
Ragkocich, Detroit's dependable
line plunger, scored two of the
Titans touchdowns and added ap-
preciably to the Detroit offensive
throughout the game.
Score by quarters:
M. S. C.........6 0 7 /0-13

Sophs Win Cane Spree
and Pillow Fight,
TOO, MANY FROSH
Three to One.
It was mostly freshman eat fresh-'
man at the annual fall games to-
day. The sophomores were outnum-
bered more than three to one so
the freshmen had to fight against
themselves to have any fun. Need-
less to say, they won the games,
defeating the class of 1934 by a
score of 3 to 2.
Of course the frosh didn't mean
to fight against each other, but
there were so many of them around
the poles that sophomores were
hard to find and they had to wres-
tle with someone.
In the two dual events, however,
the second year men won easily.
Four - sophs were victorious in a
short pillow fight and only one
freshman. In the cane spree, four
second year men won, and one
frosh. There were four ties.
r Ahead at First.,
As each of these events counted
one point, the sophomores were
ahead, .2 to 0.
The flag rush was a different
story. The sophs, pitifully weak in
numbers, charged the middle pole
only to be tossed away viciously.
One man got his arms about the
pole but he was downed at once.
Foiled in their first attempt, the
second year men tried the pole at
the north of the field and met with
even less success. Their yearling
opponents, being reinforced with
men from the pole at the south,
completely held them at bay. Time
after time, two men fighting on the
side lines would discover that they
were both freshmen and, smiling
sheepishly, would go back to look
Have Lost Two.
The class of 1934 has now lost
two games and won only one. They
lost the fall games last year but
were victorious in the spring.
There were more than 400 year-
lings at the games, the largest
number in piany years. One man
even attended the games on his
crutches and with his leg in a cast.
He didn't take part in the flag
rush, though, because the frosh
didn't need him.
Following the contests there were
the usual number of bloody noses
and ripped sweat shirts.
The frosh marched back from the
field, excited by their victory, and
shouted their war cry that caused
a riot in Hill auditorium last night,

Southern California struck out with
dramatic force in the final period
to defeat the Irish, 16 to 14.
TheTrojans snatched victory in
a last period drive, with Baker
kicking a field goal from the 24-
yard line as the furious battle was
drawing to a close. The Western-
ers scored all their points in the
frantic last period, crashing over
with two touchdowns and a field
goal. Shaver scored both touch-
downs for the Trojans.
Notre Dame, afterhbeingpushed
all over the field at. the' start, came
back to score two touchdowns, with
Banas and Martmonth Schwartz
registering the markers. Jaskwitch
kicked the extra point.
Facing defeat, the Californians
rallied like demons in the last per-
iod. Even after their two touch-
downs, it looked as if they would
lose as one of the extra-point kicks
was blocked by ,a Notre Dame play-
er. It was in the final minutes that
Baker got over his telling field goal.
Score by quarters:
Notre Dame......0 7 7 0-14
