probably saved a score as the ball
rested on the three-yard line with
three downs to go.
Only two minutes of the second half
were gone when the crowd was elec-
trified by Gene Ciolek's 89-yard
touchdown saunter. He swept around
his left -end, as Don Siegel lunged for
him and barely missed, and got up
steam and blockers as he sped down-
field. The State blocking spectacle
was beautiful to behold. Art Valpey
was the last of the Wolverines erect,
and Ciolek easily eluded him.
Here Sparks Team
After punt exchanges in midfield,
Michigan suddenly came to life, with
diminutive Hercules Renda providing
the hypo. With nine minutes of the
quarter remaining, Stark Ritchie
found John Nicholson for a 25-yard
pass. Then Herc took matters into
his own hands. He took Ritchie's pass
over his shoulders to the 15-yard line.
Using reverses almost exclusively,
with Renda carrying the bulk of the
freight, Michigan moved to the six-
yard line. But they were given a
five-yard handicap for an impatient
Then Ritchie faded back and shot
a pass to Renda, who grabbed it on
the four-yard line and almost dove
across the coveted stripe. Trosko
subbed for Ritchie and kicked the
extra point, and Michigan led briefly
7 to 6.
Regulars return
Bachman then inserted his Varsity
again. During Michigan's touch-
down drive, the reserves were playing.
Immediately, Pingel, Haney, Pearce
and Halbert went to work. They
climaxed their job, of course, with a
Pingel-Nelson touchdown aerial.
Michigan's second score was largely
the result of Renda's offensive perfor-
mance. He battled Spartan forwards,
lent deception by his fake reverses,
and finally turned into a pass catcher,
despite his stature. Fred Trosko
abetted him.
Renda Stands Out
Renda might have stopped Nelson{
on his last touchdown jaunt; he
might have stemmed Spartan pass-
ing fury. But he gave Michigan im-
petus and proved to be its only offen-
sive threat.
Tex Stanton and Don Siegel were
defensive standouts, with Doug Farm-
er also adding his bit to checking the
State rushes. Harry Speelman
strengthened reports of his prowess
as a tackle.
But the story of the game is the
story of John Pingel and Ole Nelson,
and their vaunted aerial collabora-
tion. And the story of a weak right
side of Michigan's line. The Wolver-
ines weren't yet ready to start a
comeback trek.
CHAMPAIGN, Oct 2.-()-Coach'
Bob Zuppke's silver anniversary sea-
son at Illinois acquired a spot of
tarnish today when a heavy, scrap-
ping Depaul team from Chicago re-
fused to give ground and emerged
with a scoreless tie.

9ne Minute To Go ...
MICHIGAN MAY have Hunk An-
derson and his "floating"
,guards, a new spirit (viz., Hercules
Renda and Derwood Laskey) and the
ingredients of another winner (viz.,
Wally Weber), but they still play
"Michigan" football. With a minute
to go, a touchdown in arrears, and
the ball within the five-yard stripe,
Louie Levine sent Wally Hook back
-on the second down-to kick. We,
too, quit believing in miracles (al-
though that Minnesota - Nebraska
game yesterday confuses us further),
but going on the defensive in that
stage of the affair strikes us as hav-
ing the "fix" put in with the time-
keeper. But evidently no "fix" was
put in . . .
Incidentally, Tulane and Auburn
postponed hostilities until Monday
on account of rain. And the more
we think about it, the better we like
the idea.. .

The 71,800 spectators practically
filled the stadium. A few goal line
sections were empty, but elsewherel
the vacant seats were few and far be-
tween. The temporary bleachers were
Michigan State was first on the
field a half hour before game time.
The Wolverines immediately followed.
The 85-piece Spartan band went
through their maneuvers followed by
Michigan's 125-piece outfit. Both
joined for the National Anthem.
The press box was practically filled.
Detroit sent out its usual large crew,
and Chicago was well represented.
Arch Ward, noted sports editor of
The Chicago Tribune, was covering
the game from the press box. He
spoke over the air at half time.
The Michigan Radio network car-
ried the game over some of its sta-
tions. WJR Detroit and WKAR Lan-
sing also gave accounts.
,Coaches Kipke and Anderson each
sported large horseshoes on their ties.
The Michigan drum major, Robert
Fox, brought a roar of approval from
the crowd by flipping the baton over
the goalposts and catching it behind
The after game festivities rivalled
the actual battle in intensity. With
the final gun as a signal, the crowd
poured out on the field with the north
goalpost as their objective.
State took an early advantage as in
the game proper with a Spartan gain-
ing a cross bar perch, but it took a
track man to beat them.
Bill Staehle was the gent. With a
comrade in heated battle atop the

cross bar with the above Spartan,
Staehle outclimbed the clutches of
the crowd and aided his ally in dis-
posing of the enemy.
Meanwhile the crowd was going
through war maneuvers below.
With the champions of the west in
bontrol of the north goal-posts, the
Spartans decided to employ strategy.

With the crowd solidly packed
around both goalposts - Spartans
holding the South, Wolverines the
north, a split in the former's ranks
was suddenly noted.
A gent by the name of Bill Watson
caused the schism. Bill in his off
season puts the shot over 50 feet, and
he broke his own record today on one
of the Spartans.
L'il William finally tired of the
quiet proceedings and headed for
home to tear a cow apart for dinner.
HIs Spartan victim was aided off
the field-several other Watson re-
cipients disappeared.
A band of Ann Arbor pool room
notables were frolicking in the fray.
A dance hall bouncer stated after-
wards that he was buying a season
pass in hope of future developments.
Bob Westfall, Ann Arbor high
school football star, was also among
"those present."
Members of the Sea Scouts joined
in the tussle. Their aquatic prowess
did them little good.
The Wolverines took complete con-
trol after 45 minutes of mayhem. The
battle ended at approximately 5:35
after more- than an hour of skirm-
ishing. At that time four Wolverines
were perched on each goalpost.
State police joined the Ann Arbor
force in handling both the pre and
after game crowds. Traffic before
the game was jammed for an area of
five miles.
