PITTSBURGH, Oct. 24. - (')-
Proud Notre Dame, whose football
legions have scaled the loftiest
heights, suffered its most humiliating
defeat in 22 historic years today as
the mighty Pittsburgh Panthers, sub-
dued a week ago by little Duquesne,
broke loose to crush the fighting
Irish, 26 to 0 before a wild crowd
of 70,224 spectators.
Marshall "Biggie" Goldberg, 17-
year old Jewish sophomore from the
mountains of West Virginia, solved
the great mystery of the Irish, who
came to Pittsburgh undefeated and
Slippery as an eel, as fast as light-
ning, the boy called "Biggie" because
he is small as, compared with other
heroes at Pitt, led the furious, vicious
attack that turned the South Bend
typhoon into a zephyr. The defeat
was the worst suffered by Notre Dame
since Yale walloped the Irish, 28 to
0, in 1914.
Geldberg Spectacular
Halfback Goldberg, weighing 175
pounds and standing five feet nine,
scored but one of the four Pitt touch-
downs but his spectacular open field
running was directly responsible for
two others as the Panthers rushed
over one touchdown in each the first
,and third periods and then rolled
over two more to make it a rout in
the final.
Notre Dame was as badly outclassed
as the score indicated. The Irish
didn't make a first down until the
closing minutes of the third period
and only made a total of four as
against 15 for Pitt. In yardage
gained, they were outdistanced 325
yards to 73.
The second period was the first
tip-off to the big crowd. The Pan-
thers, or Goldberg, marched straight
down the field for 65 yards and a
touchdown with Bill Stapulis lugging
it over from the two-yard line. With
a minute to play in the half, Bobby
Larue returned a punt 67 yards to
Notre Dame's three but the timer's

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct.- 24. - () -
Minnesota's mighty fortress of foot-
ball still stands, its guns booming
defiance to the gridiron world.
Purdue's team of destiny, like 20
other attackers before it, attempted
to force Minnesota's surrender to-
day, but in the end it was vanquished,
33 to 0 before 50,000 spectators.
A dogged crew of Boilermakers bid-
ding for a Big Ten championship,
after playing brilliantly for 30 min-
utes, collapsed in the final half and
were scattered to all corners of the
sun-drenched memorial stadium.
Purdue gave out in the second half
before a surge of Minnesota man-
power and was trampled under four
more touchdowns after the Gophers
had scored their first marker in the
opening period. The Boilermakers
staged a willing and desperate battle
but were out-manned and out-
charged. Towards the end, reserve
players like Matheny, Bates, Moore,
and Wrightson and a flock of others
were tearing big gaps in Purdue's
line which was rapidly weakening
and tiring.
Gophers March On
Thus the Gophers, unbeaten in 28
games and victorious in their last 21,
continued their march to the West-
ern Conference championship, per-
haps to the national championship,
in the knowledge that they have
conquered one of the most feared
elevens on their 1936 schedule.
The Boilermakers, with the bril-
liant Cecil Isbell as the spearhead of
their attack, outgained the Gophers
from scrimmage in the first half, pil-
ing up eight first downs to three
for Minnesota and amassing 185
yards to 93 for the Gophers. But in
the second half the Minnesota sec-
ondary started snaring Isbell's long
In the final accounting it was Andy
Uram, Whitman Rork, Bill Matheny,
Julie Alphonse and Larry Buhler who
were accredited with Minnesota's
touchdowns, three of them coming
as the result of intercepted passes by
which the Boilermakers had hoped to
offset the ruthless desperate charg-
ing of Minnesota's power.
The Swedes Start Fast
The game opened with expected
thrills when on the second play from
scrimmage after receiving the kick-
off Uram slipped around left end and
tossed a lateral to Alfonse who gal-
loped 30 yards before he was fored
out of bounds. A few moments later
the Gophers intercepted Ceci Isbeli's
pass with Wilkinson snatching r-he
ball and running 31 yards to Purdue's
Uram and Whitman Rork lugged
the ball to the 14. Uram then slashed
through tackle to the 10-yard stripe,
and as Purdue's defenders swarmedI
around, he whirled and flipped a
lateral to Alfonse who slid over for
the first marker.
The Boilermakers opened up with
an aerial attack in the second. Cecil
Isbell whipped the ball to Powell, who
made a beautiful catch amid a pack
of Gophers for a first down on Min-
nesota's 16. There the Boilermakers
lost their only scoring 'chance when
Drake fumbled, King recovering for
the Gophers.

gallery of 12,000, gathered to celebrate
a new intersectional warfare between
the two schools.

Shada proved the undoing of the Jas-
pers. What with running, pass snag-
ging and kicking, they accounted for
all the Detroit points. There were
other contributors, but Farkas and
Shada were the boys who put on the
finishing touches. The former scored
all three touchdowns and Shada made
good two of his three tries for extra
Farkas raced over the Manhattan
goal line once in the second and twice
