EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 29.-(I')-
Minnesota's football empire fell to-
day. No longer arc the Golden
Gophers the symbol of reigning pow-
er in the Western Conference. In
their place are the Wildcats of North-
western, who beat down the mighty
men of Minesota, 6 to 3, in one of
the most bruising, sensational battles
of any season.
Trailing, 3 to 0, at the end of a
blazing first half, the Wildcats struck
with lightning rapidity to crash over
the winning touchdown in the clos-
ing minutes of the fourth period.
When the ball was planted over the
Minnesota goal line, the crowd of
47,000 Northwestern homecomers was
swept into the advance stages of
It was the second time in the last
three years that the Wildcats had
conquered Minesota virtually to
knock the Gophers out of the Wes-
tern Conference championship. It al-
so was the first time that the Goph-
ers had lost in Big Ten competition
since ± Northwestern whipped them, 6
to 0, in 1936.
The Wildcats took the attack and
had the Gophers fighting with their
backs to the wall most of the time.
The Gophers in the last half ap-
parently were softened up by the
savage play of the Wildcats for theyt
were held to just 16 plays-eight in
the third period, and eight in the
fourth. Four ' of them were punts,
two of them were fumbles and one
an intercepted pass.j
In the blistering fourth the Wild-
cats had advanced on three occa-
sions near the goal-first to the 23
yard stripe, then to the threehand
then to the twelve. After missing a
fourth attempt to score on a field1
goal, Northwestern struck for keeps.
Big Larry Buhler, Minesota's full-
back, had fumbled on Minnesota's 20
yard line, with Hal Method recover-
ing for Northwestern. Then Coach
Waldorf of the Wildcats substituted
one of his sophomore jack rabbits,
Oliver Hahnenstein of Aurora, Ill.
He took the ball on the first play
and crashed to Minesota's 11 yard
line. On the next play he swept to
Minnesota's 8 for a first down.

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 29.-(AP)-
Pittsburgh's football Frankenstein,
shackled, buried and beaten by Ford-
ham for three stunning periods, broke
its fetters with a tremendous three-
touchdown yank in the nine min-
utes of the final quarter today to
sweep aside the gallant Rams, 24-13.
This was the picture: In the first
period, Pitt's dream backs, Mar-
shall Goldberg, Dick Cassiano, John
Chickerneo and Hal Stebbins, rolled
over the Rams with one, point in
mind-to break the scoreless dead-
lock. Sacrificing a possible touch-
down chance, Bill Daddio dropped
back on fourth down to the Ram 13
and scored a perfect placement kick
to send Pitt ahead, 3-0.
Then, suddenly the Rams got two
breaks and cashed them in for a
touchdown. Chickerneo's return punt
was bad and it fell to Len Eshmont,
sensational Fordham soph back, on
the Ram 47. But Ted Konetsky
rushed in, almost strangled Eshmont
for no reason and Pitt was penalized
15 to its own 38.

EAST LANSING, Oct. 29-(A)--
Football's glory road was a rocky and
treacherous path today but the Bron-
cos of Santa Clara cashed in on a
second period break to down Michigan
State, 7 to 6, and remain among the
nation's undefeated and untied major
college elevens. A crowd of 21,000
saw the Pacific Coast eleven forgeJ
the fifteenth link in its chain of con-
secutive victories.
Outfought by State in the opening
period and trailing 6 o 0 in the
second, Santa Clara tied the score
when Walter Smith, substitute tackle,1
blocked Casimir Klewicki's punt on
the State 30. He caught the ball in
mid-air and ran over the goal line un-

ultimately the winning margin for a
team that had a big edge in ground
gaining and threatened to score al-
most continuously throughout the last
State's main weapon today was the
forward pass and it was through the
air that the way was paved for the
The Spartans dominated the play
in the early stages as their backs drove
through the invader's forward wall.
Held deep in their own territory for
the first ten minutes, Santa Clara
finally got going to get out to their
own 45 where Bill Anahu fumbled a

forward pass and State recovered.
The Spartan drive was on and Johnny
Pingel, State's triple threat back,
struck through the air with passes
to Mike Kinek and Usif Haney to
take the ball to the Santa Clara 19
as the period ended.
On the first play of the second
period Pingel fired a 16-yard pass to
Johnny Budinski and on the, next
play smashed through right tackle for
a score. Leslie Bruckner's place kick
was blocked by the same Smith who
later provided Santa Clara with the
tying touchdown.
Except for a single State drive that
pierced to the Bronco's 15, the last
two periods were all Santa Clara with
the coast eleven storming the ram-
parts three times only to be repulsed
by an inspired Spartan forward wall.

Fred Trosko, Wolverine halfback who showed plenty of speed in yesterday's 14 to 0 triumph over Illinois,
found a big hole off tackle in the second quarter and wasted no time in racing through it. He wasn't stopped
until he had picked up ten valuable yards. Jack Meyer, Michigan quarterback (No. 77), gave the fleet Trosko
plenty of help with a neat block of Bob Castelo Illini end who made several brilliant catches during the after-
noon. This hole was typical of the way in which the Michigan line and blocking backs were clearing the
way for the runner permitting many lengthy gains and a total of nine first downs against the Orange and Black.

First Quarter
Captain Janke of Michigan won

out of bounds and the ball was put in
play by Michigan on her own 35.
Three line plays with Phillips and
Harmon carrying the ball gained 5
yards and Kromer kicked to the Il-
linois 13 from where Burris returned
it to the 25.. A bad pass from center

gan 38 and after Michigan
failed to gain Kromer kicked

Rettinger's punt on first down

the Illinois 30 and Kromer, be-
hind good kicking, returned it to
the Illinois 13. After an Illinois
time out Harmon broke through

touchdown. Brennan's place-kick
was good and the score was

ried it to the Illinois 24. However,
a poor pass from center on the
next play resulted in a fumblej
and Kirschke recovered for Il-
linois on the 26.
The Illini's second first down came
on a pass to Castelo from Peterson,
on the Illinois 43. After an incom-.
pleted pass Peterson went through
tackle for another first down on the
Michigan 43. A tricky triple lateral
resulted only in an interception by
Frutig, who carried it to the Michi-
gan 25 before being downed.'
Kromer found a big hole at left
guard for another Michigan first
down on the Wolverines 40. After
Kromer went for another first on the
Illinois 44, Mehaffey went to the 34.

Michigan in scoring position but three
passes and a running play failed and,
Illinois took the ball just before the
half ended.
Third Quarter
Illinois kicked off again and Hodges'
kick went over the end zone and was
put in play on the Michigan 20.
Michigan failed to gain and Rettinger
attempted a punt. The kick was
blocked by Smick who recovered it on
the Illinois 29.
After a short pass play and a cen-
ter buck Harmon passed flat to Eva-
shevski who took the ball on the 15
and with excellent blocking, chiefly
by Smick, he went over without a
hand being laid on him. Brennan's
placekick was again good for the extra
Harmon's leg was injured on the
touchdown play and he was replaced
by Trosko. Brennan's kickoff was
brought back to the Illinois 30 by
Ehni. After failing to gain, Ehni got
off a beautiful punt from his own 25
to the Michigan 6 yard line and Kro-
mer ran it back to the 12.
After Michigan kicked to the Illi-
nois 47, Burris went around left end
to the Michigan 23 but Evashevski
intercepted Ehni's pass two plays
later on the 15 and the threat was
over. Michigan was forced to kick
and Illinois took the ball on their own
39. After Frutig nailed Thistlewood

Ehni kicked. Strong quick kicked to!
the Illinois 33. Ehni's pass to Zim-
merman was good for 16 yards to the

gan 48 as Kodros was injured and
Tinker replaced the Wolverine center.
Ehni and Strong exchanged kicks and
it was Illinois' ball on their own 29.

on the Illinois 47 but the Illini failed
to gain and were forced to kick. A
double exchange of kicks put the ball

Hodges' kick-off was again out of
bounds and Michigan took it on the
35. Harmon gained 6 yards in two
line bucks and Kromer went for a
first on the Michigan 46. Harmon's
lateral to Evashevski was good for
another first down on the Illinois 42.
Running plays and passes failed and
Kromer kicked out on the Illinois 8.
Peterson's cutback through right
tackle was good for a first down on
the Illinois 27 but Rettinger was
forced to kick after three line plays
failed. Harmon went from his 37 to
midfield for a Michigan first down
and then to the Illinois 43 on a weak
side drive as the quarter ended.
Second Quarter
