"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.i
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall"
. and so did many of America's
leading football squads last Saturday.
Included among those who fell forI
Dame Downfall were such powerfulI
grid teams as Pittsburgh, Carilgeiej
Tech, Alabama, Tulane and Oregon.
Charlie Bowser's Panthers, consid-
ercd the top outfit in the nation last
week by the Associated Press, fell
from their pinnacle by dropping their
intra-city battle with the underrated
Duquesne "giant killers."
Skibos Skid
Another smoky city team, the Car-
negie Skibos, suffered its first defeat
of the year at the hands of Mal
Steven's gridders from NYU. The
Violet team scored early in the sec-
ond period and then played safe the
rest of the way, a trick they learned
the week before when the Steven's
squad blew an early lead while play-
ing North Carolina.
With Johnny Butler, the speedy
sophomore back, leading the way,
Tennessee's undefeated Volunteers
handed Alabama its first loss this
campaign in their important encoun-
ter at Knoxville.
Another strong southern squad, Tu-
lane's mighty Green Wave, gained a
14-14 deadlock with North Carolina
after the Tar Heels tricky aerial of-
fense almost carried them to victory!
in the final moments of the game.
Crosby's Alma Mater Upsets
In the Far West, Oregon's favored
eleven was upset by little Gonzaga,
12-7. The Webfoots, undefeated in
Pacific Coast play until Saturday and
fresh from a 6-0 win over California,
were considered one of the strongest
teams west of the Rockies.
In Western Conference activities
Saturday Michigan and Ohio State
remained at the head of the parade
as both squads rang un victories over

Chicago and Minnesota respectively.
The Buckeyes returned from Minne-
apolis with one of the hardest fought
wins of the week. The game was
one of those see-saw, hurly-burlyV
affairs in which the Golden Gophers
drove to the Buckeye four yard line
with two minutes left to play, only
to be repelled by a holding penalty.
Wildcats Win-Finaily
Northwestern's Wildcats finally
showed some of their expected power
as they came from behind to defeat'
Wiszonsin, 13-7 in their Big Ten.
battle. This was the first time this
year that Lynn Waldorf's eleven was
able to push its way into payoff ter-
ritory.
Indiana turned back Illinois, 7-6
in the other Conference game played
Saturday..
The Yale Bulldogs, who come to Ann
Arbor next week, dumped over a
favored Army squad, 20-15 in New
Haven, while Pennsylvania, another
of the Wolverines' future foes, out-
classed Harvard, 22-7.
Harmon Has Big Lead
In Cdnference Scoring
Michigan's great halfback, Tom.
Harmon, increased his point-scoring
total to 45 against Chicago last Sat-
urday to take a commanding lead in
the race for Western Conference
scoring honors.
Though he played only about one-'
third of the game, the Gary flash
came through with two touchdowns,
three points-after, and a field goal
to add 18 points to his previous week's
27.
Far behind came Capt. Erwin
Prasse, Iowa's All-Conference end,
with 18 points. Bob Westfall and
Dave Strong were tied for third place
with five others with 12 points.

Dave Strong, reserve left halfback, aided in the 85-0 rout of Chicago
Saturday by scoring two touchdowns. In the second period the former
Illinois gridder went off right tackle, eluded three mnen who hemmed him
in, and raced 65 yards to score. Strong also tallied Michigan's only third
quarter touchdown when he ran almost unmolested 37 yards throughout
the entire Maroon eleven.

His Magic Personality has colored three
fields of music: as a pianist, composer,
and conductor. As a composer, Rach-
maninoff ranks among the foremost of
the day. As a conductor he has achieved
distinction. His pianistic art has ripened
more gloriously with each succeeding
year, and he now stands at the pinnacle
of his great career.
