MADISON, WIS., Nov. 19-(P)-
Minnesota's mighty men, with a deva-
stating running attack that produced
three touchdowns and a second
straight Big Ten Championship, ex-
dream of a football kingdom today.
Before a crowd of 39,000 spectators
in Randall Stadium, the Golden
Gophers routed the bewildered Bad-
gers, 21 to 0, achieving the specta-
cular triumph -with a bruising, rush-
ing game that stunned thousands
of Badger fans who had hoped to see
Wisconsin win its first conference1
title in 26 years.
Minnesota's decisive victory gave
it a season record of four wins and
one defeat. Michigan's defeat of Ohio
State aided the Gophers towards
undisputed possession of the Title.
Badgers' Hopes Wrecked
Exactly 10 years ago Minnesota
nosed Wisconsin out of a gridiron
title with a hard-fought 6 to 0 vic-
tory. Today the Gophers again
wrecked the Badger hopes, this time
with a smooth yet relentless and
machinelike performance that left
Wisconsin few openings.
Only once did the Badgers threaten
seriously, driving to the Minesota six
in the final period. Then a pass inter-
ception ruined the hope of avoiding
a shutout.
Minnesota failed to scor in the
opening period only because Wiscon-
sin's line held Gopher backs to only
four yards on as many plays to give
Wisconsin possession on downs at its
own one yard line. But the Minnesota
power offensive, with Gopher for-
wards slashing big holes in the Bad-
ger line, w'as nt long to be denied.t
With less than three minute of the,
half remaining, Minnesota took pos-
session at the Wisconsin 27 after a
short punt. On the first play Larryl
Buhler smashed through, left tackle,
cleverly sidestepped the Wisconsin
safety man and raced across, thet
goal line. After a scoreless thirdt
period which saw.Buhler injured, the
Gophers turned the game into a rout.
Paffrath Gains 18
With Sophomore Bob Paffrath
streaking 18 yards to highlight the
march, Minnesota drove 33 yards tot
the Badger 12, then George Franck,
powerful halfback, knifed through
left tackle for a touchdown, carrying3
two Badgers on his back in his final
Again, with less than three minutes
of the game remaining, Minnesota
scored again. A long pass, Haroldi
Van Every to George Mash, carried(
the Gophers to the Wisconsin 17.(
Franck got five at tackle and Marty
Christiansen, who had replaced Buh-
ler, crashed 2 yards through center
to score, getting great blocking which
featured Minnesota's game all after-r
Minnesota's superiority was re-
flected by the statistics. The Gophers
made 12 first downs to seven for,
Wisconsin and piled up 251 yards by;
rushing to Wisconsin's 11. The vic-E
tors tried only three passes but com-
pleted two of them as Wisconsin
made good on five of 19, most of them
in midfield territory.
Howard Weiss, ace Wisconsin full-
back, played brilliantly, making the
longest Badger gain of the day as he
sprinted 38 yards after taking a short
pass in'the third period.

NEW HAVEN, Nov. 19-(AP)-Heav-
ily-favored Harvard football team
that had been outkicked, out-rushed,
outfought and generally outplayed
for three periods clicked for one re-
lentless 80 yard scoring drive in the
final quarter today to beat Yale, 7-0.
For better than three fourths of
this game, witnessed by a crowd of
62,000 that first sat through a drizzle
and then through a downpour, the
Crimson's complex backfield maneu-
vers were short-circuited effectively
by a combination of the weather and
a savage Yale defense.
Given the ball on their twenty after
Johnny Miller's attempted field goal
for Yale from the 27-yard line had
fallen far short of its mark, the Har-
vards lost a yard in two shots at the
spirited Eli line.
Then Frank Foley, chief figuiap in
Harvard's 13-6 triumph a year ago,
dropped back and fired a short pass
over the middle to Torbie MacDon-
The Crimson speedster, snaring the
ball on his 25, sped to the 40 before
he was hauled down. Again Yale
smeared one play for no gain, but it
was merely holding off the inevit-
able, for MacDonald cracked the
middle for five' yards and Foley,
starting from far behind the line of
scrimmage, ripped around the Eli left
end for nine yards and first down on
Yale's 46.
This time Joe', Gardella ploughed
over guard for three, and then Mac-
Donald, breaking over Yale's right
tackle like a startled antelope,
;printed 33 yards before Gil Hum-
phrey ran him out of bounds on the
Yale ten. Once more there was a
brief delay, as Gardella could get no
more than two at the line, before
folly, running to his right, shot the
touchdown pass into the end zone to
MacDonald, who grabbed the ball out
of the clutching arms of Eddie Col-
lins, Jr., Yale's defensive left half-

PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. 19-())-
Army at last knows the glory of a
victory over the Princeton Tiger on
the football field.
After 45 years, a span that found
the two natural rivals playing only
eight games with the Tiger thrice tied
but never kicked into defeat by the
Army Mule, the Cadets marched
through the rain before 40,000 soaked
spectators today to a 19-7 triumph.
The Army line, led by Bob Little, a-
175-pound guard, was the big differ-
ence between the teams. The Cadet
forward held the fine Tiger backs
to a total of 35 yards by rushing, a
stone wall that was only penetrated
by Dave Allerdice's fine passing and
a great catch by Tom Mountain that
netted the Tigers their only touch-
The Cadets, sparked by a fine aerial
attack and slashing runs and punt
returns by Art Frontczak, Charley
Long and Woodrow Wilson, never
were headed. They scored in the first,
second and third periods.
Bucking, passing, skirting the ends
and plunging they opened with a 68-
yard march that failed by five yards
to score but the drive ultimately pro-
duced their first touchdown. Rushed
by the Cadet forwards, Mountain
tried to punt from behind his goal and
in ploughed Johnny Samuel to block
the kick. Little fell on the ball be-
hind .the 'Iiger goal for the touch-
down and Long booted the extra
In the second the Tigers came back
with a 41-yard drive to knot the
score. Allerdice tossed ten yards to
Mountain who made a superb catch
over the Cadet goal for the score.
Army took the next kick-off and
pushed the leather over after a 54-
yard drive. Toward the end of the
third period Frontczak and Wilson
took charge and cashed, in for the
third and final Cadet touchdown.

BERKLEY, Calif., Nov. 19-()-
The University of California's Bears,
making a last-ditch stand for a
chance at the Coast ConferenceI
Championship and the Rose Bowl
bid, scored a fourth period touch-
down and a 6-0 victory today over
their oldest football rivals, the Stan-
ford Indians.
Some 82,000 fans, largest crowd in
the nation for the day, saw the Bears
snatch at a sudden "break" in the
last quarter. It was a fumble by
Fred Ledeboer. Stanford left half.
Louis.Smith. California's right half,
grabbed the ball 27 yards from the In-
dians' goal.
Three plays later California turned
what had appeared to be a scoreless
battle into glorious victory. With the
ball on the 21-yard line Vic Bottari,
left halfback and clever field general,
whipped the ball to Angelo Reginato,
substitute end, who sidestepped one
tackler and crashed over the line. Bot-
tari's drop-kick for the extra point
was blocked.
As the game ended, the Bears were
charging toward another touchdown,

a gridiron drenched by an all-night
A homecoming crowd of 10,000 saw
Detroit take a commanding 13 to 0
lead in the early stages, then trail 14
to 13 late in the third period and
finally turn on a fiery attack that
produced four touchdowns in the
closing 20 minutes.
Detroit capitalized on a blocked
Tulsa punt for its first score five
minutes after the start. Ed Palumbo!
shooting a 21-yard touchdown pass
to Stanley Slovisky. Nick Pegan's
try for point was blocked.
Early. in the second period an in-

its own 40 and again the Titans
struck through the air to reach the
10, from where Al Ghesquire passed
to Bill Coyro for a score. Coyro con-
verted to make the count 13 to 0.
Tulsa marched 86 yards with a con-
sistent passing game to score just
before the half ended. Tom Thomp-
son's four-yard aerial to Bill Grim-
mitt concluded the drive and George
Farmer converted.
Another aerial fusilade put the Ok-
