There was no more thoroughly im-
pressed visitor to Ann Arbor this
weekend than the National Broad-
casting Company's popular young
sports announcer, Bill Stern. Stern,
the picture of poise both behind the
microphone and1 when confronted by
eager young reporters, was sent from
New York to give the nation a run-
ning account of yesterday's Big Ten
opener with Iowa, and if the amazing
Wolverine power struck his fancy,
which it did in no uncertain terms,
it was no more inspiring to him than
the "fine spirit" in evidence every-
where on the campus.
Calmly and good-naturedly facing
the barrage of questions hurled at
him, Stern first responded with "I
have never seen a better-conducted
athletic plant than you have here,
and that goes for the school as a
whole, too," when asked for this re-
action to an inspection of the campus.
larmon, Sure All-American
When the subject of yesterday's 27'
to 7 triumph over the Hawkeyes came
up, Stern's first word's were: "Har-
mon is great. He looks like a cinch
to go on my Life Magazine All-
American selection this year. Tom
was far and away the best man on
the field and I can truthfully say
that since I have been broadcasting
football, there has been but one other
player who can handle himself so
magnificently on .the field and that's
little Davey O'Brien, of Texas Chris-
tian. Harmon was on my third team
last year, but it will be hard to keep
out of my No 1 club after that one-
man show today."
Who will win the Conference title?

"Michigan," was the reply. "I've
watched but one other Bg en team
this year, Minnesota, but this team
of Crisler's without a doubt has inore
punch. None of the other clubs ap-
pears as strong."
The colorful 'atmosphe~r, at the
Stadium, which, incideniaily, is one
of the prettiest structures of its .kind
he has ever seen, came in for its bit
of praise, too, and it was the Michi-
gan band which stole the spotlight.
The only instruction Stern received
as to his assignment here yesterday
was to "leave the air betwveen the
helves so the audience can hear
Michigan's band." The audience did
hear it, and so did Stern, who was
just ;as impressed as the widest-
eyed freshman in the crowd.
Kodros Makes Big Impression
When Stern made the rounds to get
acquainted with the Michigan play-
ers 'Friday afternoon, his biggest im-
I pression was that of the Wolverines'
fighting captain, 'Archie 'kodros. "It
was quite a sight to see Kodros go
from player to player with a word of
encouragement as soon he he entered
the locker room to dress for prac-
tice," remarked Stern.
Ed Frutig came, in for a bit of
scrutiny and was the object of this
remark: "That boy ought to storm
Hollywood with his looks, fine build
and personality 'plus."
Before packing up and parting,
Stern let it be known that his as-
sociations here at Michigan will al-
ways be remembered by him as some
of the finest he has ever experienced
on any college campus. "Everybody
was swell," was his conclusion.

Archie Kodros, Michigan's great captain and center, again gave a
fine account of himself in the line 'as the Wolve#ines 'defeated aIowa's
Hawkeyes, playing fifty-eight minutes before leaving the :game in the
last quarter. Archie's inspiring leadership'brought 'him a healthy con-
pliment from NBC's Bill Stern who broadcast the game over a nation-
wide hookup. Stern characterized Kodros as a truly great leader 'and
a fine center.

battle matched Its start, both teams

minutes of play. Each added another

Then, after a comparatively quiet

Pitt Comes FromBehind

PITTSBJRGH, Oct. 14.-(/P)-The
so-called Pittsburgh football babble
exploded today-right in the faces.

n't filled with laughing gas.
Charley Bowser's mystery team

tators in various stages of hysteria
throughout the crisp autumn after-

)2-Marquette University seized up-
on an opportunitiy presented by an
unusual referee's decision this after-
noon 'to break a 14-to-14 tie by the
margin'of a field goal and defeated
Michigan State College, .17 to 14, be-
fore a crowd of 12,00 puzzled fans.
M arquette cashed in on Referee
William Blake's decree that Bill
Batchelor, Spartan center, had in-
terfered with an opportunity to make
a free catch of Wyman Davis' punt.
The penalty for that violation is a
15-yafd "advance for the nont-offend-
ing team and'a chance to-put the ball
in play in aiy manner desired.
The '15-yard penalty on Michigan
State brought the ball to its own 15-
yard line and from there Marquette

goal. Bob Kemnitz, Hilltopper
guard, sailed "the ball squarely be-
tween the goal posts to break a 14-4

11 first, downs to seven for Marquette
and gaining 136 yards net to 59 for

dumping runners before they got un-
der "way.
