Evashevski Plays Great
Game At Quarterback
Ed Furtig,_Savilla Star
(Contintiedt from Page 1)
Michigan, Kinnick knocked down
one of Harmon's passes and then
Green intercepted another on the
three-yard line. It was a fooish play
as the events soon showed.
Kinnick was forced to kick from
deep in his own end zone and booted
out to Trosko who caught it on the
35 and returned to the 26. Then
Iarmon got into action. He went
inside left end for 11 yards and a
first down before he was halted by
Green and Jim Walker. Then he
threw a pass to Evashevski in the
'ight flat and the Ocne-Man Gang
butted his way to the four-yard line
before Kinnick and Green bumped
him out-of-bounds. Westfall cracked
enter for two and then Harnon cut
back over left guard to score stand-
ing up. It was exactly the same play
en which he had scored the first
touchdown. The attempted conver-
sion was wide.
Savilla Bl cks Kick
Harmon again kicked off and the
hird of the Michigan reas was not
ong in coming. Kinnick, kicking from
his own 32 on fourth down, had the
dick blocked by SavIlJa. The ball
has recovered by 'innick on the 37
but since it had been blocked behind
the line and since it had not gone for-
ward far eiough to niake the required
0 yards, possession automatically
Massed to the Wolverines on downs.
Aided by beautiful bl ks by eva-
shevski and Westfafl, Harmon swept
around his own right end on the first
lay, shook off three tacklers bnd
went all the way to the eight. Then,
in the next play, the Hammer took
the same route, avoided four tacklers
and sidled over the goal line. He
was trped twice, once behind the
line by Prasse and once at the line by
biehl but eluded both. His kick was
good and the score at the end of the
half, was 20-7.
Last Touchdown Spectacular
The Wolverines' last touchdown
'ame on the most sie5ctacula iy ay of
the game. After Michigan had been
penalized back to their .two-yad line
by a pair of successive 15-yard hold-
ing penalties, Smith angfed a P6or
Gunt out to his own 17 where Rogers
downed it. Kinnick picked up three
through the middle and then tried to
tit Green with a pass. farn6in stole
the ball out of the Hawkeye's hands,
On, the five-yard line, tore down the
right sidelines unmolested for a 95-
yard r6 back to a' touchdown. He
coverted again to round out the
day's, and Harmon's, scoring.
',The victory put Michigan in a two-
way tie for the Big Ten leadership
with Ohio State. Each of these teams
has won its only game.

During the course of the game, 'the
spectator is in a peculiar position.
Safely distant from the crunches and
bruises of the field, he reclines on his
backless seat, occastonaiy rises to
shout a bravo to one !v fame's fleet-
ing figures and talks to the person on
his left about his last affair. He may
watch the game intently but he sees
it, not as an integral whole, but as
distinct entities. One play at a time
crosses his vision and one play at a
time is all he 'considers.
In this anomalous situation, the
quarterback and the part he plays re-
mains strangely hidden in the peri-
phery of the gaie. The spectators
condemn or praise the signal-caller
with one play as a criterion. In yes-
terday's game, Iowa's signal caller,
Bill Gallagher, must have heard fum-
ing vitriolic when in the third period,
he called a pass play on second down
with seven to go on the Michigan

"First I run the flanks and then I
run 'em down the middle. Then I
open 'em wide and then I close 'em
up. It's very simple--when you have
a guy like Harmon to do it."
Dr. Eddie Anderson, in his first
year as Iowa coach, had nothing but
praise for the Wolverines. "It's a good
team," the 'good doctor said, "but I
wouldn't call it -a great one. At least
not yet. Harmon is a great running
back. And Evashevski makes too

of the breaks. We have no alibi,
however. We were beaten by a better

The Bucks were held on'#e'n terms
for the first three periods but ex-
ploded in the fourth when they 'con-
verted a pair ef Wildcat mistakes in-
to touchdowns.
Late in the third session, 'Ohio's
quarterback, Don Scott, dropped back
on the Wildcat 30 for a pass. Rushed
by Northwestern linemen, Scott side-
stepped through them to the six-yard
line. Ohio was on the one-foot line
as the period ended. Scott romped
over on the first play of the fourth
period and booted the extra point
from placement.
A few minutes later, after an ex-
change of punts, Northwestern at-

to the left. But yesterday, from the
huddles, Harmon would slip into
either position. That's why he car-
ried the ball so much. He averaged
better than five yards a try at carry-
ing the ball in gaining 90 of Michi-
gan's 124 rushing yards. fle ran a
pass back 95 yards for a touchdown
and his two completed passes were
good for 46 yards. Thus the Hdosier

yards of the 170 kichigan gained.

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 14.-( P)-
Minnesota's Big Ten champions
pretty well bottled up Purdue's famed
three "B's" for 55 minutes and 34
seconds here today but one of them
balked at that point.
Mike Byelene, with four minutes
and 26 seconds of play remaining,
popped through tackle, cut slightly
to his left and ran 45 yards for a
touchdown which with Fred Mon-
tague's pay-off placement, gave the
Boilermakers a 13 to 13 tie The tying
thrust came after a daring play. It
was fourth down, two to go from the
Minnesota 48. Byelene plunged for
three for the needed yardage, and ran
for the touchdown on the next play.
Montague's placekick was good this
time and the score was tied.
