To Win Easy
CHICAGO, Oct. 18. - (,T) - The
Scarlet and Gray juggernaut from
Ohio State will make its opening drive
tomorrow for the Western Conference
championship ,or, at least, a share of
it, meeting Northwestern at Colum-
bus in the outstanding game of the
Big Ten schedule.
Sixty thousand spectators are go-
ing to sit in at tomorrow's game.
Northwestern promises to be much
tougher than Drake, which was
bowled over 85 to 7 a week ago, be-
cause the Wildcats will have more
reserve strength and a better all
around team. But even the most
optimistic Northwestern rooter hopes
for nothing more than a close score.
Chicago, with the old cry, "Beat
Purdue," plays the Boilermakers at
Stagg Field with the prospective at-
tendance of 35,000. The Maroons
will hit the Purdue line wth a tre-
mendous burst of fury, and if the
Purdue defense falters they may find
themselves so far down in a few min-
utes that they can never make it up
even with the advantage of reserve
In Jay Berwanger the Maroons
have unquestionably one of the great-
est scoring weapons in the game to-
day, but they have only one first
string line-up that must stand up and
face the battering. It will be up to
this little group to put over the most
important game of the year for them,
and under the circumstances they
figure their chances will, be better
early rather than late.
Minnesota plays Tulane at Min-
neapolis with Indiana meeting Cin-
cinnati at Cincinnati. Illinois and
Iowa will be idle, resting up for their
important encounter at Champaign
a week hence.
Before even making a pass at its
Big Ten schedule, Minnesota will try
to finish the ground work for na-
tional gridiron honors tomorrow at
the expense of Tulane's Green Wave
A similar arrangement last year
worked out perfectly. In their first
two major battles in 1934, the Goph-
ers polished off Nebraska and Pitts-
burgh. Then they went on to win
the Big Ten title with five victories.
The Nebraska part of this year's
intersectional assignment was suc-
cessfully handled last week. Unless
Tulane stirs up more opposition than
the figures indicate, the Gophers will
head into their conference schedule
against Northwestern next week for-
tified with two major victories.
The game will be the first between
Minnesota and the southerners, but
at least a few members of the latter
eleven will be familiar to Coach Ber-
nie Bierman. Before returning to his
alma mater in 1933, the Gopher coach
directed Tulane's gridiron warfare.
Notre Dame shares the spotlight
meeting the undefeated, untied Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh eleven at South
Bend, for a battle that may draw
50,000 heralding the return of the
golden era at Notre Dame. The game
appears to be a toss up, bringing to-
gether evenly matched teams, at-
tempting to preserve their winning

ESPITE the fact that grid experts
all over the country are disagreed
as to the outcome of most of the
major games this week-end, the Staff
prognosticators are in complete ac-
cord as to the results of 12 of the
20 contests included in this week's
The Michigan eleven is unanimous-
ly selected to defeat the Wisconsin
gridders at Madison this afternoon.
This shows considerable gain in con-
fidence over last week's vote when
Michigan was picked to down the
Hoosiers by a margin of one.
The winning choices of the other
Conference games are also chosen
by a consentient opinion-Ohio State
over Northwestern, Purdue over
Berwanger and Chicago, Minnesota
to beat Tulane, and Indiana to down
The other unanimous choices are
Michigan State to continue its
winning streak at the expense of
Boston College, Army over Harvard,
Kentucky to conquer Auburn, Ne-
braska to take Kansas State, Prince-
ton to overcome Rutgers, and learn-
ing a lesson from last week's Mis-
sissippi State catastrophe, Tennessee
to stem Alabama's Crmson Tide.
Despite the fact that Pittsburgh
is the pre-game favorite over Notre
Dame, the Panthers managed to get
only one vote.
The Staff concensus:
Michigan (8) -Wisconsn (0).
Minnesota (8) -Tulane (0).
Ohio State (8) -Northwestern (0).
Purdue (8)-Chicago (0).
Indiana (8) -Cinncinati (0).

Gomer Jones, 200-pound center and captain of Ohio State's pow-
erful gridders, will lead his team against Northwestern today in the
Buckeyes first Conference tilt. Jo'nes is the spark plug of the Scarlet
and Gray eleven and his fine flay in his team's early games has brought
him under the scrutinizing glance of the selectors of the All-American
squads. Northwestern will find it mighty difficult to gain through the
center of Ohio's line with this stalwart in the lineup.
Levandowski, I-M Ring Coach,
Holds Decision Over Braddock
By RICHARD LaMARCA
' Martin Levandowski, I-M boxing
coach, is one of the fighters who holds
a decision over Jimmy Braddock, pres-
ent heavyweight champion, whose
spectacular comeback reached a cli-
max when the fighting Irishman re-
cently outpointed Max .Baer to win
the coveted title.
Levandowski met Braddock twice,
losing a close decision in the first bout
but coming back. to win the second
encounter by a rather close margin.
"I fought Jimmy in Chicago in
1933," Martin said. "Previous to this
match, I was going pretty well in Chi-
cago, having knocked out Bob Olin,
present light-heavyweight titleholder,
in five rounds, and having won a de-
cision over Harold Scarney. A light
heavyweight, I was scheduled to meet
George Nichols, at that time cham-
pion. However, George didn't show
up so Braddock was sent in as a sub-
stitute. Jimmy fought as a heavy-
weight and I gave away 11 or 12
pounds. Braddock was declared the
winner but not by a very wide mar-
Rematched In St. Louis
"Following, this bout it was rather
difficult to schedule a rematch, in fact
Jimmy ran out on me three times.
Finally, after two months had passed
by; Braddock decided to meet me
again, this time in St. Louis. Jimmy
had knocked out Al Stillman, a St.
Louis boy, and naturally a favorite
with the fans, and as a result was fa-
vored to win. However, I managed
to gain the referee's nod in a close
ten round bout. I've never met Brad-
dock since, though I did write him a.
Ten Juveniles Entered

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 18. -- (P) --
Ten juvenile hopefuls -nine colts
and a filly, which probably will fur-
nish the winter book favorites for the
1936 Kentucky derby -were in train-
ing at Churchill Downs today for the
Kentucky Jockey Club stakes at one
mile, to be run Saturday.
With 10 starters the race will gross
nearly $13,000 and the winner's por-
tion will be $9,000. In the field are

letter congratulating him on his vic-
tory over Baer."
Martin remembered a very inter-
esting incident in his second fight in
St. Louis: "The fellow who was act-
ing as my second told me to keep
working into Jimmy's left hand. 'Don't
crowd him.' The first right hand
punch which Braddock threw, after
the bout was only about 30 seconds
old, hit me in the eye and immediately
closed it entirely.. You couldn't even
get a pen knife between the eye lids.
I saw his right coming and tried to
get away from it but it came right
Braddock Not Flashy
"What about Braddock's style of
"Well, Braddock is primarily a tall
boy and although not a flashy fighter,
he's deliberate and boxes fairly well.
He punches hard with his right hand
and is exceptionally tough and cour-
ageous. You don't have to worry
about him backing out or quitting be-
cause he keeps right on fighting as
long as he's on his feet. In my two
fights with him I had to crowd in and
counter my way. You can't stand off
because he spears you with a long
right hand which knocks your head
off. I'd like to see him beat Louis,
when they fight, because he's a nice
chap and a good sportsman."
Better Than Schmeling
In reference to Louis fighting either
Braddock or Schmeling, Levandowski
said, "Braddock will give Louis a bet-
ter fight than Schmeling. In the first
place, he'll box more naturally than
Schmeling and although he may not
punch as hard, his blows are short
and stiff. Neither one will give Louis
a very hard fight. Louis is the type
that comes out once in a generation.
He's a natural fighter. His boxing
ability, terrific power, quickness of
eye, and reflexes all go to make up
a great fighter."
Martin Levandowski spent his
freshman year -t Western State
Teachers College. His home is Wha-
len, Michigan, just south of Grand
Rapids. He boxed as an amateur for
three and a half years and turned pro
in 1930. "I entered the fight game
for the glamour of it, but I turned pro
because I wanted to earn some
