Iuqd.,Oct. 6. - (UP) - A battling team
from Rice Institute gave the Houston,
Texas school its greatest gridiron
triumph in its football history by de-
feating Purdue today, 14-0. John Mc-
Cauley and Phil Wallace led the Owls
in a slashing attack that bested the
boilermakers in every period except
the third.
It appeared that the battling Tex-
ans had played oiut in the third pe-
riod, but they spurted anew in the
fourth and before the quarter was
fairly under way, they had scored on a
pass from Wallace to'McCauley.

Northwestern staged a brilliant aer-

today after missing five opportunities
to pile up a bigger score.
Thirty-eight thousand fans saw the

brought a touchdown.

. A number of reasons have already
been advanced for yesterday's rout.
Here are two of the best:
Eli Soodik, perennial reserve cen-
ter and guard, says they lost because
it was the first day in three years
that he wasn't on the bench in uni-
form. He is out with a bad h'ip.
An Alpha Sig says they lost be-
cause it is the first time in 15 years
that an Alpha Sig hasn't been in the
line-up. Wonder if they have an Al-
pha Sig chapter at Michigan State?

We talked last week about the poor
sportsmanship shown by World Ser-

it wasn't nearly asbad as the asinine

by a thrown ball.

A lot of people are wondering why
State is wearing black-and-gold uni-
forms this year instead of the green-
and-white of the school colors. Notre
Dame, whose colors are black-and-
gold, wears green-and-white jersies.
As the mad-hatter might say, "Some-
thing must be screwy!"

A number of sensitive Wolverines,
particularly women, remarked upon
the unwonted arrogance of Michigan's
songs after yesterday's debacle. "'The
Victors" just won't do in such cir-
cumstances and even "Varsity'" has
a pretty strong implication of victory.
Tolan Runs 130 Yd.
Dash Time Trial In
Near-Record Time
Eddie Tolan, 1932 Olympic 100 and
200 meter dash champion, yesterday
afternoon served notice on Austral-
ian sprinters by means of a record-
breaking time trial at Ferry Field
that when he invades that continent
in November he will be ready to run
against Australia's best.I
With a fair wind at his back Tolan
was clocked in 12.3 seconds for the
130 yard dash which is the main event
for the Australian sprinters. "Dad"
Butler, track coach at the University
of Detroit was the timer and although
Butler was not certain as to the
world's record for this distance, he
was certain that it was between 12
and 13 seconds.
Harvey Patton, Varsity track star,
was running against Tolan yester-
day and led the former Michigan
star to the tape by a yard after be-
ing given a 11 yard advantage at the
start. This handicap plan is used in
Australia where Tolan will run pro-
fessionally under a pari-mutual bet-
ting system.
It is expected that Tolan will leave
for his tour during the first part of
November and will start racing im-
mediately after his arrival during the
Australian summer. Sprinting there
is conducted as horse racing is here
and spectators place bets on the en-
trants to win, place or show, with the
winners getting a share of the re-

Malloy Winner
Of University
Woodrow (Woody) Malloy, number
two man on Michigan's National
Championship golf team, Saturday
won the annual University golf
championship at the University golf
course with a 72 hole medal score
of 306. Allan Saunders, top-flight
player of last season's freshmen team
was runner-up with a total of 308.
Malloy replaces Johnny Fischer as
reigning titleholder. Fischer is eli-
gible for Varsity competition next
spring, but could not compete in this
tournament due to the fact that he
has been champion for four years.-
Chuck Kocsis, Varsity number one
man last season, was also not eligible
because he has not yet made up the
examinations which he missed last
June while competing in the National
Malloy is a three-time Ann Arbor
City champion and is permanent pos-
sessor of the trophy given in that
event. He played his usual yery
steady game in winning his latest
triumph. Saunders, who is expected
to be a serious contender for Varsity
honors next spring, also displayed
some good form ina pressing Malloy
so closely in the finals.
Prof. Thomas E. Trueblood, Var-
sity golf coach and conductor of the
University championship tourna-
ment, declared that some very fin
golf was displayed throughout and
that he was well satisfied with the re-
All-Campus Bowling
League Under Way
For the second successive year, an
all-campus bowling league will be
formed. The purpose of this organi-
zation is to stimulate interest in bowl-
ing among the student body. It is
under the direction of Stanley Walz,
[manager of the Michigan Union.
At present there are six teams sign-
ed up and the list is expected to be
increased to ten shortly. The league
includes a representative group of
players. There are teams composed
of lawyers, engineers, freshmen, and
one from A.K.L. fraternity. Two
teams consist of the student body in
general and are headed by R. Sidman.
The teams meet on Tuesday night
from 7:00 to 10:00 in the Union bowl-
ing alleys. An entrance fee of two
dollars is required of each member.
Fifty cents is the expense for bowling
three lines, five cents of which is don-
ated toward a prize fund.
All those interested should get in
touch with Woodrow Hunter, alley-
keeper at the Union.

'Dizz 'Hit On Head,
Taken To Hospital
While Unconscious
Jerome "Dizzy" Dean, stellar pitch-
er of the National League, was hit
in the head by a thrown ball this af-
ternoon. The accident occurred dur-
ing the fourth inning. Durocher was
on base when Virgil Davis batted for
"Dazzy" Vance. He singled and "Diz-
zy" ran for him.
Pepper Martin hit to Gehringer,
who tossed to Rogell for a force play.
Rogell, in trying to double Martin,
hit Dean in the head. The ball
bounced high and rolled into right
field. Dean fell flat, and Durocher
scored tying the game at four all.
A short time later it was announced
that Dean, still unconscious, was re-
moved to a hospital for an x-ray op-
"Dizzy's" injury is a serious handi-
cap to the Cardinals. He was expect-
ed to pitch today, but Manager Frisch
started "Tex" Carleton to give the
lanky Oklahoman an extra day of
rest. Had he pitched today, it would
have been his fourth start in nine
days. The St. Louis fans expected
him to win at least one more game,
and possibly two, but unless his in-
jury is trivial, he will be unable to
start again during the series.
Dean won thirty games this year,
excluding his victory over the Tigers
earlier in the week. His confidence
concerning the outcome of the pen-
nant series caused much comment,
but after the fans saw him pitch, and
when they saw his brother pitch two
days later, they understood.

Hank Greenberg, Tiger first sacker
snapped out of his World Series bat-
ting slump with a vengeance today. He
hammered the offerings of three Car-
dinal pitchers for two singles and
two doubles in five times at bat and
scored one run.
Ann Arbor Is
Winner Over
Saginaw, 6-0
Dick Jennings, 120-pound captain
and end of the Ann Arbor High school
football team, took a long pass from
Dick Warner out of the hands of two
Saginaw Eastern backs midway in the
fourth quarter and romped .15 yards
over the goal line to give the Purple
and White a 6-0 victory yesterday
morning at Wines Field.
The touchdown came after both
teams had muffed two chances to
score. In tpe first period Jennings
dropped a pass over the goal line. In
the third period a fumble on the sev-
en-yard line ended a touchdown op-
Saginaw Eastern drove to the two-
yard line once, but the Ann Arbor
forward wall held. Later Watson,
Saginaw halfback, dropped a pass
while in the clear.
Fumbles marred the game through-
out, but the fine defensive playing
of the Ann Arbor line made up for,
what sloppy play there was.
Ray Courtright, Purple and White
fullback, was in every play and show-
ed plenty of power in his plunging.
Krukowski and Kulak stood out for
Saginaw, the former passing and the
latter punting beautifully.
