As Wisconsin Wins
Indiana Is Tied


PAIGN, Ill., Oct. 13 -tP)-- By the
slender, but mighty, margin of a try
for point after touchdown that con-
nected to one which did not, Illinois
conquered Ohio State today 14 to 13,
in a wild, breath-taking Western
Conference gridiron battle.
And it was a battle. A knockdown
and-drag out tussle that had 30,000
spectators, including Red Grange,
Illinois' all-time football hero, wild-
eyed and panting from beginning to
end. The Illini going into the fray
as the underdogs, struck swiftly by
air to take the lead in the first period.
They were never behind, but those
Buckeyes were coming strong at the
end and as the final period wore on,
it appeared to be just a question as
to whether the finish or the desperate
Buckeyes would get there first.
PALO ALTO, Cal., Oct. 13 -OP)-
The red- erseyed giants of Stanford
upheld the highest traditions of far
western football today with a smash-
ing 20 to 0 intersectional victory over
Coach Tiny Thornhill's sturdy pig-
skin warriors rushed over a pair of
touchdowns in the second period and
turned the engagement into a rout
with a third quarter score.
LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 13. -Still
smarting from the 20-0 beating re-
ceived last week at the hands of Min-
nesgta, .the University of Nebraska
Cornhuskers gained some measure of
revenge on the Big Ten here today
by eking out a 14-13 victory over
fighting, die-hard University of In-
diana football eleven gained a 6-6
tie with the high-powered Temple
University grid machine before 20,000
fans in Temple stadium today.
Wendell Walker, individual star of
the game, scored for Indiana on a 35-
yard sprint in the second period, and
Don Watts, Temple ball-carrier tallied
in the third with a 60-yard run after
receiving a pass from Fullback Dave
SOOTH BEND, Ind., Oct. 13. -
Notre Dame, with Big George Melin-
kovich showing the way, outpowered

After Three Years,
Cappon Looks OnL
As Michigan Loses
At last Coach "Cappy" Cappon hasI
been present on the bench at a Mich-r
igan defeat. This happened yester-
day for the first time in three yearsr
when Cappon watched Chicago romp1
over Michigan, 27 to 0.
This string of victories which Cap-I
pon witnessed started in 1931. Whenj
Michigan lost to Ohio State in 1931, he1
was away on a scouting trip. When
Michigan lost to Michigan State a1
week ago Saturday, he was scouting
the Vanderbilt-Georgia Tech game.
These were the only games lost by
Michigan in three years until yester-
There was some facetious supersti-
tion current last week that it was,
necessary for Cappon to be on the
bench in order for Michigan to win.
However, Cappon is no Witch of En-1
dor or walking amulet which yester-

MONROE, Oct. 13.- In the final
minute of play, Dick Warner tossed
a pass to Eugene Kurtz over the Mon-
roe goal line to give Ann Arbor High
a 6-0 victory and its fourth consecu-
tive win of the season yesterday here.
The- lone touchdown came after the 1
Purple and White had driven from
their own 22-yard line to the Monroe
two-yard line.
Ann Arbor was outplayed during
the first half. Twice Monroe was in
scoring position, but each time the
interception of a pass cut off the
threat. Schumann intercepted one
pass on his 20-yard line, and Kurtz
grabbed the second on the 19-yard t
In the first half the Purple and
White once took the ball to within
two yards of a touchdown, but War-
ner's fumble gave the ball to the
home team.j
Monroe failed to make a first'
down in the secondehalf when the ad-
vantage was clearly with the visitors.

After Ann Arbor. in its touchdown
march. had driven to the Monroe
29-yard line, it was penalized 15
yards. A pass from Warner to Davies
made up the loss, however, and a
ruling that Monroe had interfered
with Hoag, a pass receiver carried
the ball to the six-yard line. After a
plunge, Warner tossed the unexpected
game-winning pass to Kurtz.

(MP)- Making a determined bid for
national grid recognition, Michigan
State today won a 13 to 0 intersection-
al victory over Carnegie Tech as the
Spartans unleashed a brilliant run-
ning attack which bewildered the in-
vaders in every quarter.
After outplaying Tech in the first
two periods without quite finding its
scoring punch, State hit its stride in
the third period when Reynolds car-
ried the ball 17 yards for a touch-
down after the Spartans had recover-
ed a Tech fumble .deep in enemy ter-
ritory. Before the period ended, State
added three more points, on Mc-
Crary's field goal which climaxed a
drive from the Tech 35-yard line.
The final scoring came in the
fourth period, Sebo booting a field
goal after he and Armstrong had
placed the ball in position with two
smashes at the Skibo line, good for
32 yards. The field goal was pro-
tested by the visitors, but was allowed.
