IOWA CITY, Nov. 14.-()-Pur-
due's Boilermakers, master football)
ciaftsmen, steamed over Iowa, 13 to!
0, today to add a final dismal touch to
the Hawkeyes' dreary Big Ten season.
Fifteen thousand dad's day spec-
tators, filling only a third of the sta-
dium, saw the Boilermakers, their
ground attack halted, forced to aerial
tricks to score two first period touch-
Hawkeyes Stage Battle
The Iowa players, storm center of
alumni criticism and treated earlier
this:week to a one-man revolt by Oze
Simmons, the ace Negro halfback, re-
fused to crack under the Boilermak-
er pounding. Their stubborn defense,
generaled by Dick Anderson, substi-
tute center, prevented Cecil Isbell and
John Drake, Purdue's "Touchdown
Twins," from scoring by the ground
With Isbell and Fred Stalcup car-
'ying the brunt o; the attack, the
Boilermakers drove to the Iowa nine
yard line. After failing to gain on a
plunge ,Isbell faded back and tossed
a pass to Stalcup who eluded the
Iowa ,secondary and was all alone in
the end zone.
Powell Tallies On Pass
,Later Isbell, behind vicious block-
ing, cracked his way to the 24-yard
line. Then the elusive Purdue speed-
ster dropped far back to flip a pass
to Don Powell, Purdue end who
caught the ball on the six-yard line
and fought off three Hawkeyes as he
squirmed over.
Iowa made only one real scoring
threat. On the final play of the first
half, Simmons, stopped coldon scrim-a
mage plays, grabbed a pass from
Bowlin and scampered to the 10-yard
line as the gun sounded,
The defeat closed Iowa's Big Ten
season without'a victory. The team
lost to Northwestern, Indiana, Minne-
sota and Purdue and played a score-
less tie with Illinois.

PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. 14.-(I)-
Larry Kelley, who recently said
"there can't be an All-American
team without me" led Yale to a
spectacular 26-23 victory over Prince-
ton today before a capacity crowd of
57,000 who saw the Blues, rallying
sensationally around their inspira-
tional leader, come from behind twice
to overtake the Tigers.
Kelley, who caught a pass on this
same Palmer Stadium turf two years
ago to plaster a 7-0 defeat on the Tig-
ers and spoil an otherwise spotless
season for them, was completely bot-
tled up in the first half, but the Tig-
ers relaxed their vigilance in the sec-
ond half and that was all the Wil-
liamsport, Pa., wizard needed. He
made a seemingly impossible catch
of a touchdown pass and broke up
several Tiger scoring threats.
With Kelley blocked out most of the
time and Clint Frank, the Eli's flashy
running and pass-throwing back, un-
able to make an impression on the
heavier and more powerful Prince-
ton line, the Yales, despite a touch-
down in the last minute, looked as
though they were in for a revengeful
beating as they trailed 7-16 at half
time of the 60th game between the
The Eli's came back to the game re-
freshed by the half time intermission
and in the 30 minutes of play that
followed outsmarted Princeton.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Nov. 14.--(,)---
Turning on the power in the third1
period, Ohio State, on two quick
thrusts, smashed over two touch-
downs to trample Illinois, 13 to 0,
today before a dad's day crowd of
A 29-yard dash by Johnny Rabb'
and a 6-yard sprint around end by
Billy Booth gave the Buckeyes their
two touchdowns after Illinois, unable
to score itself, had almost proved that
it wasn't going to allow the scarlet--
clad warriors to score either.
Rabb Scores First
Rabb drove off right guard on a
quick opening play, successfully elud-
ed the secondary, and scampered
across the goal line standing up.
Merle Wendt place-kicked for the
extra point.
The second touchdown came after
Illinois had stopped two smashes at
the line. Booth, coming into the
game as a backfield player, grabbed
the ball and raced to his right, break-
ing through the tackles. He ducked
two more Illini tacklers waiting to
nab him and carried one of them on
his back as he fell across the goal
line. Booth failed to convert on the
try for extra point from placekick.
Illini Never Threaten
Illinois, with only a shadow of an
offense, had no punch and never
threatened to score. The only time
the Illini had the ball in scoring ter-
ritory was on an Ohio fumble. That
was in the second period when Cas-
telo recovered Wasylik's fumble on
the Buckeye 25 yard line. Wardley
and Spurgeon failed to pierce the
line and then the Illini went into the
air only to see Spurgeno's pass in-
Illinois' made only three first
downs to 12 for the Ohioans, and
gained only 74 yards by rushing to
292 for the Buckeyes.

Pittsburgh's mighty power cracked

and generated the momentum for de-

19 to 6, in a hard fought intersection-

Cadets Suffer Worst Defeat

210 S. Ashley

How Conference
Chapon reMd

Way back last Spring when the
phophets were picking the Big Ten
Threats, there was unanimous de-
cision on Ohio, Minnesota and North-
western. The football experts at
that time had analyzed the material
of'e all schools and placed the best
chances of success on these three.
* *
Where does football material
come from? Naturally, any team
is composed of refinements of the
freshman squad; so the all-
important nucleus is a large
promising group of freshmen.
For a imoment, glance at the first
year football try-outs of the
leading Big Ten schools:
Ohio ........320 Freshmen
Minnesota ... 352 freshmen
Northwestern 300 Freshmen
Michigan ....125 Freshmen
You can- easily see why we have
a tougher job to start with it.
*I * *
iow is it this year's leaders attract
so many more men than Michigan?
Just one reason - they can make it
possible for an All-American aspirant
to find a job to work his way through
At Northwestern, the large busi-
ness communities adjacent to the
campus in Chicago and Evanston
readily absorb any football candi-
dates who wants work with pay.
At Minnesota, Minneapolis and St.
Paul afford many more business es-
tablishments for employment than
Ann Arbor.
Ohio State, located in Columbus,
the State Capital, likewise can offer
attractions in the form of jobs possi-
bilities for athletes who cannot
afford college.
Michigan located in a more de-
lightful but less industrial city is
handicapped. About the only posi-
tions available are board and room
jobs -and most of these are sewed
up by the various fraternities' own
The smaller number of business
houses in Ann Arbor are cooperating
whole-heartedly in the employment
of students, but they cannot offer
competition to larger cities.

With these conditions in effect, it{
is remarkable that we get as good
material as we do. Every man now
on the football team is sacrificing
more comfortable quarters elsewherel
for the privilege of playing for Mich-
igan under Michigan's coaches. DO
* *.*
Do you know that Michigan
plays the same football as Min-
nesota? There are 20 plays of
Michigan that are identical with
the Minnesota strategy. The dif-
ference lies in the physical ex-
ecution of these plays. On an
ordinary off-tackle smash a fast '
210-pound tackle will make: the
play a dazzling success whereas
a 165-pound man who is slow
will make the play appear dull "
and lifeless. A line gaining play '
relies not so much on the strat-
egy of the play as it does on the
execution of it.,
* *
A very important factor that makes
Michigan's team appear on the lower
end of the spectrum of the football
limelight is that we have played the'
toughest schedule of the nation's best'
teams. For a warm-up session we3
played Michigan State. The Farmers
make this their most important game
of the year - and rightly so for it
draws a crowd of 20,000 more than
any of their other games - and we
use it for .a warm-up game. Many
were surprised that we were defeated
by Penn. Look whom Penn has won
from. They took the Navy easily who
beat Notre Dame who defeated Ohio
When a good team plays the best
teams they are bound to have some
But our comparison with the
best teams of the nation is of
a nature to warrant a victory
over Ohio State.
We have a green team we are
not ashamed of, but we have ma-
terial that means, Conference

Indiana Beats
Chicago Eleven
By 20-7 Score
CHICAGO, Nov. 14. - (N) - The
Hoosiers of Indiana University, with
quarterback Vern Huffman giving one
of the greatest individual perform-
ances seen at Stagg Field this season,
defeated a stubborn band of Chicago
Maroons 20 to 7 before 20,000 spec-
tators today.
Chicago, from the start, was held
on the defensive, but the Maroon line
repeatedly made stubborn stands in
the shadow of its own goal posts. The
Hoosiers kept hammering away and
with less than two minutes of play
remaining in the second period, Ro-
land Obenchain, on an end-around
play, twisted his way 16 yards
through the Maroon line to the Chi-
cago two. Huffman slashed off
tackle to score easily, Miller's try for
point being wide. Huffman's passing
to Beasley featured the Hoosier
touchdown march.
In the third period Huffman shot
a 33-yard aerial to Beasley and then
smashed eight yards to score, Miller
making this kick good. On the first
play of the final period ,with the ball
on the Chicago five after a 27-yard
run by Huffman, Filchock lateraled
to Tanner, who scampered over the
goal line, Fowler converting.
Chicago scored in the final 15 sec-
onds of play on a pass from Lou Ha-
mity to Bob Meyer.
