Notre Dame's Merriwell Finish Nips

Qhio 'Scourge'
Vanquished By
Halfback Pilney
Dazzling Uphill March To
Victory By Irish Leaves
Spectators In A Lather
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 2 - (P) - In
a melodramatic finish that has had
few parallels in college football his-
tory, the Fighting Irish of Notre
Dame snatched victory from defeat
this afternoon and scattered the na-
tional championship dreams of Ohio
State's famed "Scarlet Scourge."
The final score was 18 to 13 as
Notre Dame came from behind in
the final period to score three touch-
lowns, barely miss a fourth, and leave
a tremendously excited capacity
crowd of 81,108 spectators literally
imp with the excitement of one of
the greatest comebacks any gridiron
has witnessed in years.
There was only one period to play
when "Handy Andy" Pilney of Chi-
cago, hero of the dazzling uphill
fight to triumph, touched off the
eworks that turned the tide. There
was a scant five minutes left when
Notre Dame's desperate aerial bid for
the tying touchdown failed a yard
short of the Ohio goal because of a
The Irish fought back again, but
there was less than a full minute to
play when big Wayne Millner, crack
Notre Dame end, pulled a long pass
from Bill Shakespeare in the end
zone for the deciding touchdown that
wiped out the last vestige of Ohio
State's first half lead.
Throughout the last thrilling quar-
ter, with Ohio's defense crumbling
rapidly under the stabbing aerial
thrusts of the Irish, Pilney was the
electrifying factor in the surge of a
team that simply refused to be beaten.
The speedy little halfback's 26-
yard return of a punt and 12-yard
pass to Francis Gaul set the stage
for Steve Miller to plunge the re-
maining yard for Notre Dame's first
touchdown early in the final period.
Miller's fumble at the Ohio goal
line nullified the next aerial drive
engineered by Pilney from midfield,
but the Irish refused to be discour-
aged. They swooped back 79 yards
through the air for a second touch-
down, with Pilney on the receiving
end of one long pass good for 37
yards and then tossing to Mike Lay-
den, with the ball on Ohi's 15, for
the score.
Wally Fronhart's failure to place
kick the extra point needed to tie
the score looked fatal. The end of
the game was in sight, but Notre
Dame had one big punch left.
Aided by a "break" near midfield
where Henry Pojman, substitute
center, recovered a fumble by Dick
teltz, Ohio halfback, Pilney launched
a decisive drive with a twisting 32-
yard run through a broken field to
Ohio's 19.
iirple 10, Illinois 3
EVANSTON, Ill., Nov. 2. -- (P) -
Don Heap, a platinum blonde who
used to give Evanston cops a merry
chase when they tried to keep him
from getting into Dyche Stadium
without a ticket, made good as a foot-
ball player today by a 43-yard touch-
down dash that gave Northwestern a
10 to 3 triumph over Illinois.
Before a homecoming throng of
36,000 spectators, the Northwestern
sophomore broke away on his win-
ing run in the final quarter with the
score knotted at 3 all. Taking a short
lateral from Hugh Duvall, he faked a
run to the left and then spurted
through to the right on a twisting
dash that carried him through five
tacklers for the score.

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 2.-(P) -
Minnesota's galloping Gophers, still
in tune with the victory march, wrote
another score of triumph today over
Purdue's Boilermakers with a 29 to 7
conquest that gave last year's na-
tional champions an unbeaten string
of 21 gridiron battles.
George Roscoe, the hard-smashing
Gopher half, scored a touchdown in
the first period, but it remained for;

IOWA CITY, Nov. 2. - (P)--
Downtrodden Indiana, twice beaten,
rose up from the Big Ten football
cellar like a post-Hallowe'en ghost
to haunt Iowa's hopes of a conference
title today by holding the Hawkeyes
to a 6 to 6 tie before 20,000 rainsoaked
Only Oze Simmons, the willowy-
hipped Negro fullback, saved the
Hawkeyes from defeat. The slippery
Texas athlete whirled around his left
end behind perfect interference in
the third quarter for a 59-yard touch-
down run.
M. S. C. 12, Temple 7
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 2. - (/P) -
Michigan State's fighting band of
Spartans took a big gamble today
and won a 12 to 7 surprise decision
over the hitherto unbeaten Temple
University Owls.
A touchdown behind as the second
half opened, Coach Charlie Bach-
man "shot the works" by sending his
second team in against Pop War-
ner's rugged powerhouse.
The second stringers immediately
went to work with a blinding burst
of speed, and softened the Owls up
for the return of the Spartan Var-
sity, which came back into the battle
in the final quarter and pushed over
the two touchdowns that spelled vic-
For the entire first half and even
into the third period, Temple held
the upper hand. The Owls had gone
into the lead midway of the opening
quarter, when a pass down the
middle, from Johnny Kusko to left
end Ed Walker, had netted a touch-
down, and Bill Dougherty's place-
ment had added the point.

Andy Stopper, sophomore triple
threat halfback of Villanova, inject-
ed a story-book climax into today's

midwestern eleven.

NEW YORK, Nov. 2. -(R) - The
football spotlight, which beamed
down on Ohio State's big stadium
today, shifts eastward next week with
the opening of hostilities in the Big
Three and St. Mary's annual inva-
sion of the Polo Grounds holding the

There are four-star games on tap

and sustained drive, with the elim-
ination of the customary second-
half slump, kept Michigan ahead.
Renner, Sweet, Ritchie Star
Offensively, Captain Renner, Ced-
ric Sweet and Stark Ritchie were the
spears of the attack as Renner's
passes again were used to put the
Wolverines in scoring position, Ritch-
ie's running accounted directly for
one score, and Sweet's plunging gave
the Michigan team a sustained of-
fensive advantage.
Renner was taken from the game
for the second half as the result of a
leg injury which was not serious and
which will not keep him from prac-
ticing this week. Sweet repeatedly
took the ball on his own power over
the Quaker guard and carried the
Pennsylvania secondary with him.
Pennsylvania, on offense, showed
one of the most powerful backs to op-
pose Michigan this season in Frank
Murray, at quarterback. Driving
hard and fast, the Quaker quarter
repeatedly harassed the Michigan de-
fense. A pass play, with Murray
throwing into the dead zone behind
center, gave the Quakers a passing
advantage of 94 yards to 63 yards as
they completed eight out of 18. Mich-
igan completed four out of 10, two
of them being on their first goalward
For the first time during the cur-
rent season, the Wolverines were on
top in first downs, scoring 12 to the
Quakers' 9. Nine Michigan first
downs were from scrimmage and
three on passes. Yards gained from
scrimmage were almost even, 150 for
Pennsylvania to 144 for Michigan.
Defensively, the Michigan line
played its best game of the season
from end to end. Despite his injury,
John Viergever worked with Matt
Patanelli and Frank Bissell to again
make the Michigan left impregnable,
while Tiny Wright justified every
confidence which Coach Kipke had
placed in him as he and Mel Kramer
held up the right.
Kramer, at right tackle, played the
most alert game of the day with his
recovering of fumbles, of which Mich-
igan had six and Pennsylvania four.


current caliber of competition in col-
lege football, as well as the marked
upward movement in gate receipts,
has stirred upon an old debate gen-
erally thought to have been buried
with the Carnegie Foundation's "Bul-
letin 23."
Developments this week indicate
the game's commercial side,- as well
as the recruiting and subsidizing of
star players, again is a vital topic
among graduates as well as under-
graduates. The prime purpose, ho*-
ever, seems not so much concerned
with reform as with the elimination
of hypocrisy in dealing with the fun-
damentals of college football produc-
tion. The 1935 theme song is not
concentrated upon sweetness and
light, so to speak, but based on an
engaging frankness.
Just Be Candid
In short, if the boys are on the
state payroll, what of it and why not
let everyone know about it? If out-
standing southern colleges recruit
some of their best talent from the
northeast or the Middle West, why
not concede it's due to enterprise in-
stead of accident? If small college
stars, after a year or so in the bushes,
yield to offers from the bigger uni-
versities, who is to dispute the ad-
vantages of hgher education or bigger
It isn't just a happy coincidence
when you find a dozen prep school
captains on the freshman team in an
outstanding university. It's not op-
timism when a new coach, install-
ing his system, promises old grads
he will show them something "next
year." It's business, football business,
the extent of which depends on what
you have in mind. The best coach
in the land can't produce without
material. Ask Gil Dobie, of Cornell,
or Tuss McLaughry, of Brown.
Knows Where To Get 'En
Dr. John J. Tigert, president of the
University of Florida, knows, for in-
stance, "where and how to get a
Rose Bowl team." He points the
finger at southern institutions of
learning which have demonstrated
that it can be done. But he thinks
Florida can get along without going
to the Rose Bowl or, perhaps, even the
Sugar Bowl or the Orange Blossom
Somewhat similar restraint pre-
vails in the so-called Ivy League,
composed of seven of the Eastern old
guard, but they want winning foot-
ball teams. Their athletic directors
talk moderation, if not actual purity,
but their scouts and their alumni
are busy interesting boys with foot-
ball talent in going to the old alma
Yale, Pennsylvania, Princeon and
Harvard have been or are in the pro-
cess of offering proof of this. Cor-

plan, no longer discriminates against
the good student who also happens
to be a good football player. Colum-
bia has been to the Rose Bowl. Dart-
mouth is on the upgrade again.
A typically frank expression of
undergraduate feeling this week
comes from the University of Louis-
ville. The editor of the school paper
advocates casting off "the shackles
of misplaced idealism" and admitting
that "business is business." He adds:
"To get a good football team, one
pays for it." Quite so.
