80,000 ToSeeNotre Dame And Army Renew Rivalry


Irish Favored.
In 22nd Game
Between Teams
Experts Avoid Predicting
Winner; Recall Scores
In Past Years
NEW YORK --Eighty thousand
people this afternoon will witness
the renewal of football's oldest inter-
sectional rivalry when Notre Dame
meets the Army at Yankee Stadium.
Conquerors of the Scarlet Scourge
that is Ohio State, the Irish rate as
favorites over the Cadets, although
both clubs have been beaten. North-
western took the tneasure of the
South Bend eleven a week ago at the
same time Pittsburgh, beaten itself
by the Irisf, was walloping the
Army by four touchdowns.
It is the 22nd meeting of the two
teams, Notre Dame having won 15
games to Army's five. One was tied.
The series is the longest uninter-
rupted one in either school's history
and time has proven that past records
mean nothing when the teams clash.
33 Make Trip
Coach Elmer Layden, himself an
important cog in Notre Dame's slash-
ing attack upon the Cadets more
than a decade ago, brought a squad
of 33 men on the trip. Andy Pilney,
whose spectacular play against Ohio
State is the marvel of the season,
was included but is not expected to
be able to play due to the knee in-
jury he suffered in the closing min-
utes of the Buckeye game.
Judging from comparative scores
Notre Dame boasts a big edge, but
observers have been taught by ex-
perience . that the season's earlier
exhibitions can count for naught
. In the worst season that the im-
mortal Knute Rockne had in coach-
ing the Irish of South Bend, Army
was rated far better. That was in
1928 and when the game was over
the great Army team had fallen be-
fore an inspired Notre Dame eleven,
The 1929 game will remain long in
the memory of the thousands that
witnessed it. Highly touted and later
accorded national cahmpionship rat-
ing,. the Irish found the.Cadets who
had been tied once and beaten twice
a hard team to beat. The game was
not decided until Jack Elder, speedy
Irish halfback, intercepted an Army
pass practically on his own goal line
and ran the length of the field for
the only touchdown of the affair.
Irish Won In '34
National champions again the next
year, Notre Dame beat the Army at
Soldier's Field in Chicago by one
point when Marchmont Schwartz
dashed 50 yards for a score before
110,000 people. A year ago a pow-
erful Cadet aggregation fell before
the Irish who were supposedly weak
and the reverse may occur in this
renewal of the series.
Layden is expected to start Cari-
deo at full, Shakespeare and Wojci-
hovski as halfbacks and Fromhart
at quarter in his backfield, and if it
does not click shove in Gaul at quar-
ter, Mike Layden and either Wilkey
or Mazziotti at the halves, and Elser
at full. It was this system of whole-
sale substitutions, reminiscent of the
shock troop days in Rockne regime,
that wore down the Navy several
weeks ago for the Irish and is likely:
to prove as effective against the,
other service team today.I

Big ropher Tackle

Ohio State's 'Scarlet Scouroe'
Confident Of Win Over Michigan


S ports Of The Day






TODAY is apparently a day of de-
nials. Beginning with Bennie
Oosterbaan, denying any acquaint-
ance with the works of Doctor Coue,
or that his chant is a novel device
tb keep his attention from straying,
but nevertheless his "We're gonna
beat the Gophers" goes on with mon-
otonous regularity.
And in politics, a matter made
pertinent by the presence in
town for the weekend of Senator
Vandenberg, the denial is grow-
ing in force that Fielding Yost
will be made Secretary of War
when the Senator reaches the
White House, despite the Repub-
lican convictions and campaign
activities of Michigan's "Old
Man." '
Ohio State is the subject of three
more denials. A local scribe, whose
opinions are highly valued by all
who know him, is insistent in his de-
nial that the Buckeyes are really the
"Scarlet Scourge" as he has substi-
tuted the appellation, the "Pink Ele-
phants." And at that the scribe is
not one who is subject to alcoholic
The Buckeyes themselves are
denying the rumor given voice in
The New Yorker this week that
the cause of their defeat at the
hands of Notre Dame was that
Governor Davey's hired hands
"quit when the whistle blew."
Which reference to the economic
aspirations of the Buckeyes brings
the denial that despite the fact that
certain linemen are in danger of fi-
nancial straits in view of possible dis-
missal from their positions in Co-
lumbus, no precautions are being
made to protect the referee's coin
when he throws it up for the cap-
tain's choice before the game next
And of coure, the most vocifer-
ous denial of the day is that
which is being made by the en-
tire Michigan football squad,
"The Gophers won't beat us."
The concensus of the sports staff's
opinion on today's games:
Minnesota (6), Michigan (5).
Ohio State (7), Illinois (4).
Chicago (7), Indiana (4).
Iowa (8), Purdue (3).
Northwestern (11), Wisconsin (0).
Michigan State (11), Loyola (0).
Notre Dame (11), Army (0).
Navy (9), Columbia (2).
Pennsylvania (8), Penn St. (3).
Colgate (7), Syracuse (4).
Marquette (7), Temple (4).
Southern Methodist (10), Arkansas
Texas Christian (11), Texas (0).
Alabama (11), Georgia Tech (0).
Louisiana St. (11), Georgia (0).
Tennessee (8), Vanderbilt (3).
North Carolina (10), Duke (1).
Washington St. (6), U.S.C. (5).
Pittsburgh (6), Nebraska (5).
CHICAGO, Nov. 15.- (A') -John-
ny Revolta, Milwaukee star and
national professional golf champion,
today signed to work with Sam Parks,
Jr., of Pittsburgh, National Open
titleholder, on the professional staff
of the Miami Biltmore Country Club.
Revolta will report within two weeks.
Revolta said he planned to com-
pete in all the Southwestern tourna-
ments. His chief goal, he said, was
the capture of the rich Miami Bilt-
more Open.

Ed Widseth is another bit of evi-
dence backing the statement that
the Minnesota line will spell trouble
for the Wolverine gridders this
afternoon when the two contenders
for the "Little Brown Jug" meet
once more.
Widseth, Minnesota
Tackle, Is Answer
To Coach's Dream
Any tackle tipping the scales at
230-pounds, standing about six foot
six inches without the aid of his cleat-
ed shoes, and capable of racing down
under punts ahead of his ends is a
welcome gift to any coach. Bernie
Bierman. Minnesota mentor, realized
that last year and put Ed Widseth,
then only a sophomore who lives up to
all of these superlatives, into the
Varsity line despite the fact that re-
turning veterans were his competi-
Widseth more than justified Bier-
man's choice. To his cool, hard play
can be attributed a good part of the
Viking's important victories over the
Pittsburgh Panthers last year.
In the third quarter with the Pitt
eleven leading by a slim margin, Wid-
seth, after racing down under Lund's
punt, changed the whole tenor of
the contest by forcing the waiting
Panther safetyman to fumble so hard
did he hit him. That fumble was re-
covered by Frank Larson, the Goph-
er's All-American end, and paved
the way for the Minnesota victory.
That game, which was Widseth's
firsu appearance in a major tilt,
marked him as a man to be watched.
He played a prominent part in the
remaining contests in the Minnesota
schedule and in the winning of the
National title and was picked as one

Christened "The Scarlet Scourge"I
in one of the greatest waves of build-t
up ballyhoo ever launched by a band
of hired publicity writers, Ohio State'sf
incomparable football team will de-t
scend upon Ann Arbor next Saturday1
intent upon slaughtering what they1
believe is a pitifully weak Michigan
Press releases from Columbus which
told spell-binding stories about thet
greatest powerhouse ever assembled'
in one football camp, and incidentally
drew the day's largest football crowd1
to the opening game, were hushedt
temporarily after the Buckeyes had
trouble beating Kentucky, 19-6.
Mowed Down Drake
But with the Drake slaughter of
the next Saturday when Francis
Schmidt sent in his entire squad to
trample a small but determined band
of Drake gridmen, 85-7, the tempo
of the typewriters increased and once
again 'little opposition was seen in
the path of a national title.'
Successive defeats handed to
Northwestern and Indiana only
served to inflate the Ohio ego to, the
bursting point, and "The Ohio State
Lantern," student publication, went
so far as to say that should Notre
Dame defeat Ohio State, Elmer Lay-
den could take Knute Rockne's post
as the greatest coach of all time and
that Notre Dame would be ranked
as the leading team in the country.
Irish Spoiled Season
There followed the greatest and
most spectacular gridiron classic of
the year when a fighting Irish team
led by Andy Pilney came from behind
in the last minute of play to outpass,
outplay and outthink Ohio State for a
spectacular 18-13 victory. Mr. Lay-
den didn't claim the title which the
'Lantern' had offered, but he did
make the Ohio State Campus, coaches
and alumni about the sickest group
of individuals ini the country.
of the tackles on the All-Conference
and the All-Western elevens.
The blond Viking lineman, who re-
sembles the traditional Norsemen of
the Northern Seas, has proven to be
more than just another good sopho-
more, providing much of the strength
that has made the Minnesota forward
wall something to cope with and be-
ing suggested by many for All-Amer-
ican honors.

The next Saturday the Chicago Ma-
roons, paced by their great triple-
threat back, Jay Beranger, rose up
from the ground, shook the dust of
the under dog from their backs and
proceeded to give the arrogant Scar-
let Scourge the scare of their young
lives -for the first three periods.
Chicago led, 13-0 at the half and
throughout the third quarter fought
desperately to preserve their lead.
But the clever Schmidt knew that
there were only 27 men on the Chi-
cago football squad, so with master-
ful strategy he proceeded to run in his
stream of reserve footballers, and
overpower a completely exhausted
Chicago team, 20-13.



LOS ANGELES- Michigan State's
Spartans, after their five day trip
from East Lansing, were ready today
for their game Saturday with Loyola
University. Coast experts conceded
the Michigan eleven a decided edge.
1. CHICAGO - Welker Cochran, Wil-
lie Hoppe and Art Thurnblad con-
tinued to lead the three cushion

ment here today. The defending
champion, JohnnycLayton, is defi-
nitely out of the race.
BATTLE CREEK - The state
board in control of athletics today
gave official sanction to a proposed
bout between Joe Louis and Johnny
Risk, veteran Cleveland heavyweight.

When the
Comes Back-
Let's all celebrate its return by wining and
dining at PREKETE'S.
Even the Minnesota folks will like our deli-
cious, appetizing foods. And whether you are
on the side of victory or defeat, you'll want a
quiet, clean place to enjoy a good meal and to
try our fine wines and beers.
For a quick lunch before the game, our foun-
tain service is just the thing.

Electrolux can't possibly make a sound
-because it has no moving parts. It's
free from repairs, too ... and operates
for less than any other!
LISTEN-but you won't hear a sound
from Electrolux. Neither when you buy
it, nor after long use! Electrolux is per-
manently silent because it has no moving
parts to cause noise. A tiny gas flame
does all the work !
A tremendous advantage! But that's
only one of the ways in which the New

Air-Cooled Electrolux is years ahead.
Compare operating costs. You'll find Elec-
trolux operates for less than any other
automatic refrigerator made! "No mov-
ing parts" means freedom from repairs,
and long life, too. There's nothing about
Electrolux to wear, nothing to cause
trouble and need fixing.
Yet with all its superiorities,
Electrolux costs no more to buy
than other leading automatic
refrigerators! And remember-
we back every Electrolux we sell. 5
