BURNING YEN to prognosticat
combined with six weary junior
eye-sore from pouring over footba
dope sheets, brings forth this columm
today. With my colleagues hitin
around .700, I've decided to hop o:
the gridiron merry-go-round for th
week. Dizzy or not, I'll confess a:
Tuesday'rniorning.
Here's the football coast-to-coaste
as I see it:
Michigan -Pennsylvania: If the
whip up enough enthusiasm to tur:
on the heat, the Wolverines will wi
this one handily. No team has score
on Michigan on a running play thi
year, ample proof of the strength f
the . Wolverne forward wall. The
have six or seven backs of stream
lined capabilities. Penn will out
weigh their hosts 7 pounds to th
man, but the question is: "can the
cope with Michigan's deadly speed?
The Quakers have a great back i
Reagan and a fine tackle in Shin
but they'll have to be extra good t
outdo such backs as Harmon and Pu
rucke and such linemen as Heikkin
en and Janke. Michigan by tw
touchdowns.
Northwestern-Wisconsin: If the 01
adage holds, Northwestern will b
off-peak after their Minnesota vic
tory of last week. Unless Badger
Schmitz and Weiss have one of thos
days, however, I can't see how Wis
consin can move against that grea
Wildscat line. Waldorf's boys, thei-
attack somewhat improved, should b'
able to win by at least a touchdown
Northwestern.
Minnesota-Iowa: Minnesota lost t
Northwestern. Iowa has beaten Chi
cago and their sports editor. Minne
sota-but not by 18 points.
Ohio State-Purdue: "The Buckeye
walloped wee N.Y.U...
Today they'll croon poo poo Pur
due." (Cripes, poetry!).
Ohio State.
Chicago-Harvard: An intellectua
dogfight with the broad "a" favore
ever the erudite midwesterners. Chi -
cago will be unable to use Benes
their Czechoslovakian importation
who was injured on a Sudeten end
around last month by a. guy name
Hitler'. Hahvahd.,
Indiana-Boston College: What a tri.
umph for Eastert prestige! Harvar
beats Chicago, and a group of Bos.
tonians subdue the Hoosiers. "It car
happen here." Boston College.
California-Southern California: The
big game of the day. Southern Cal
has come a long way since that balm
September afternoon when they losi
to Alabama, 19 to 7. Jones has a
great running guard in Smith whc
will lead the clearing for Davey Da3
and Ambrose Shindler' of Troy. It'
the old Aaron Rosenberg, Cotton War-
burton set-up of 1933. California
has a great line, two fine backs ir
Bottari and Anderson, and the im-
petus of a great winning streak. The
Trojans are primed. So. Calif.
Notre Dame-Navy: Your Uncle
Samuel is a pugnacious devil, but the
Irish have them four deep this year
When Saggeau and Stevenson star
moving it will be bad enough, bu
when Sheridan takes his ride-well
those Middies will really fry. Notre
Dame.
Pittsburgh-Carnegie Tech: Closer
than the wise ones will have you be-
lieve. Tech will be pointing and the
Panther may feel the effects of the
encounter with Fordham. When
Goldberg, Stebbins, Cassiano, and
Chickerneo get warmed up though-
Pittsburgh.
Texas Christian-Tulsa: T.C.U. has
Davey O'Brien, whose passes have
moved the southwesterners. almost
1,000 yards this year. Add that to
their good line and fast attack, and
spells . . . Texas Christian.
Syracuse-Colgate: Ossie Solen's
star is Wilmeth Sidat-Singh, a colored
lad from Harlem, who visited Ellis
Island once. I'll string along with
the Harlem Hindu and Co. Syracuse.
Michigan State - Missouri: Fred
Buesser has lost his dog. It is a

whiskey brown and white spaniel
named "Winky." Finder please com-
municate with Fred at Phi Delta Phi.
(Unpaid advt.) State.
Yale-Brown: Yale won a moral vic-
tory over Michigan. Michigan won a
moral victory over Minnesota. Brown
has won no moral victories this sea-
son. Brown.
Fordham-St. Mary's: The Rams
gave Pitt a real scrap last week. Led
by Eshmont, their great sophomore
back, they should be able to handle
the coast contingent. Fordham.
Southern Methodist-Texas A.&M.:
Will that attractive blonde who drop-
ped her purse in front of the library
at 11 yesterday and who said thank
you so sweetly please drop it again
at 11 today? Texas A.&M.
Holy Cross-Temple: Pop Warner
will be no younger after this one is
over. Holy Cross.

Munger employs a modified War-
ner, single-wing back formation.
Reagan is the tailback, Burke the
wing, Connell the number three or
bucking Mack, and Coulter the num-
ber two or blocking back.
Leading the Quakers into battle
will be Capt. Walt Shinn, their bruis-
ing 215 pound tackle, who enlivened
proceedings last year by swinging a
punch at John Nicholson, Michigan
end. He Vas banished from the game
after this gesture.
Penn arrived at the Stadium at
10:08 yesterday morning with a squad
of 34. They practiced at the Sta-
dium yntil near noon and left for
their Ypsilanti hotel and lunch. In
the afternoon, they visited the Ford
plant and Greenfield Village.
Munger, who dons a team uniform
for the game, was quoted as saying in
answer to a question on the outcome
of the game:
"We came out here to win a foot-
ball game, not for a train ride."
Michigan Coach Fritz Crisler was
as usual non-committal, about the
game and his starting lineup. As to
the possibility that Kodros, whose
rib injury has pained him all week,
will play, Crisler tersely replied:
"We can't tell until tomorrow if
Kodros will be able to play or not."
Other injured Wolverines are quar-
terback Forest Evashevski, who
sprained his wrist in the Wednesday
drills, Ralph Heikkinen, who is suf-
fering from a leg injury, Vince Valek,
and Joe Savilla. Evashevski worked
out yesterday with a half bandage,
but there was conjecture as to his
starting. In case he does- not, Jack
Meyer will call the signals.
Subbing for Kodros will be Horace
Tinker, Battle Creek junior, who will
start his first game today.
There were indications that Cris-
ler might open with an all sopho-
more backfield with Meyer, Tom
Harmon, Paul Kromer, and Howard'
Mehaffey, although Norman Puruck-
er and Ed Phillips, seniors, were fa-'
vored to be in there in place of the
latter two.
All observers agreed that Crisler'
and staff are hoping for two quick
Michigan scores today. An early
margin would permit the Michigan
coach to remove his disabled men and
to close up his offense before the
Northwestern scouts. For over the
entire picture this week has hung the
shadows of the Wildcat and the cru-
cial contest to come.

CHICAGO, Nov. 4-(P)-The Big
Ten championship hopes of Ohio
State and Northwestern will -be at
stake tomorrow in a Conference foot-
ball program which also features
three intersectional duels.
Northwestern and Ohio State'each
has won twice without a Big Ten
defeat, each having a tie on its record
as the result of the scoreless deadlock
they played early in the campaign.
Northwestern continues its title bid
against Wisconsin, and 35,000 fans

Purdue never has defeated Ohio
State but the speedy Boilermakers
are rated a chance of attaining vic-
tory No. 1 tombrrow at Columbus. If
the Boilermakers win, it likely will
be by outspeeding the bulky Buck-
eyes. In the third strictly all-Con-
ference battle of the day, Minnesota
will entertain Iowa at Minneapolis.

COLUMBIA, Mo. Nov. 4--(P)-The
Michigan State College football team
got off a train here today and walked
into a rain that heralded sloppy go-
ing for tomorrow's contest against
Missouri.
Rain has fallen for the past 24
hours here although the gridiron was
protected by a tarpaulin, the likeli-
hood existed that the ball would be
so slippery that the anticipated pass-
ing duel between Johnny Pingel,
State's triple 'threat back, and Paul
Christman, Missouri's aerial artist,
would never materialize.
The Spartans found Missouri tough
competition a year ago, winning 2 to
0. Missouri has downed Colorado,
Washington U. and Nebraska and
lost to Kansas State and Iowa State
so far this year. State has beaten
West Virginia, Wayne, Illinois Wes-
leyan and Syracuse and lost to Michi-
gan and Santa Clara.

Season Enters
Second Phase

Navy, Notre Dame Contest
Among Nations Leaders
NEW YORK, Nov. 4-(P)-The na-
tion's leading football teams, having
laid the foundations for their claims
to top ranking, tomorrow enter upon
the second and more vital phase of
their campaigns. From now until the
season's close, the pace-setters will
face rivals bent on undermining those
foundations and building reputations
of their own out of the remains.
The week-end program is head-
lined by neighborhood, historic and
intersectional struggles. Outstanding
items are:
1. Neighborhood: Southern Cali-
fornia vs. California at Los Angeles.
In addition to attracting the day's
biggest crowd, 85,000, this game brings
together the deadlocked leaders in the
Pacific Coast Conference for a battle
that should settle the conference
issue and, thereby, the right to repre-
sent the West in the Rose Bowl New
Year's day.
2. Historic: Rutgers vs. Princeton at
New Brunswick, N. J. This is import-
ant as a renewal of the rivalry that

Harring K. (Heavenly) Gates to-

otherwise normal status as an under-
graduate. His five-day rendezvous
with a religious cult known as the
"Holy Ghost and Us" society was "ex-
cused."
A few hours after the 24-year,-old
student athlete had returned to Han-
over with the announcement "I've
come back for good," Dean Lloyd K.
Neidlinger declared the star block-
ing back of the Big Green's undefeat-
ed team had been "permitted to with-
