Times In Rout

On Last-Quarter Pass
(Continued from Page 1)
Hammer hurled a pass to his Touch-
down Twin who carried it to the 30.
Kromer went around left end for
five and then another pass, Harmon
to Evie, took the galloping Wolverines
to the 11. But the Bulldogs gritted
their teeth and took the ball on
downs on the three-yard line. It was
the first time thus far this year that
Michigan has neglected a scoring
Another Wolverine Surge
Seymour kicked from his own end
zone and Kromer kicked it too, but in-
advertendly and in the wrong direc-
tion to the Michigan 30 where he fell
on the ball. But then came another
Maize and Blue surge. Westfall got
five and Harmon travelled to the
Yale 16 around right end, cut back
behind beautiful blocking for a 45-
yard run before Burr finally dropped
him .from behind with a bear hug.
Kromer took it to the 10 and the
Hammer hammered off right tackle
for the score. He converted.
The next score came early in the
second quarter and again it was Har-
mon who set it up. First he went over
right guard from his own 33 to the
Yale 37 before Burr knocked him out
of bounds. Then, after he picked up
nine more, Evie made a sensational
catch of Kromer's pass in the left flat
and went to the Yale four. On the
first play Kromer crashed through
center and the scoreboard read 13-0.
Harmon's kick made it 14.
Westfall Goes 21 Yards
Westfall paved the way for the
next tally five minutes later when he
broke away off left tackle for 21
yards to the Yale 27. Kromer and
Westfall made it one first down and
they combined again for another on
the two-yard line. On the third
play Harmon scored.
The last Wolverine touchdown was
a thing of beauty. With the ball on
Michigan's own 42 yard line, Kroner
started to the strong side and hand-
ed the ball on a reverse to Harmon
who went around left end and down1
the sidelines unhampered 0fo? 58
yards. So perfectly was the play set
up and so fine was the downfield
blocking that no Yale man was nearl
enough to the Hammer to do any-
thing but wave good luck to him as
he trotted by. His kick was blocked.e
Elis Weak On Ground
Yale's running attack was pitiful.
They gained only 37 yards overland
all afternoon while Harmon alone
picked up 203 of Michigan's 357e
In the line it was Joe Savilla againr
and Milo Sukup who stood out. Archiel
Kodros turned in his best defensive
game of the year while Bill Stackt
made most of Yale's tackles. And oft
course, the usual fine blocking of
Evashevski and Westfall went vir-
tually unnoticed.

All-America Hope Continues To Shine

Irish Win Fifth Straight; extra
Point Nips Carnegie Tech, 7-6

PITTSBURGH, Oct. .28. -GP)--
Again that extra point looked big as
a billion as Notre Dame scored its
fifth straight victory of the year over
Carnegie Tech, 7-6, before a thrilled
crowd of 68,000 in Pitt Stadium to-
This time it was Lou Zontini, fleet
Irish halfback, who carefully lined
up his sights and place kicked that
vital seventh point after the Irish
had scored their touchdown on a re-
covered fumble in the third period.
In scoring five victories, Notre
Daie now has amassed a total of
only 15 more points than its defeated
The only thing that looked like a
score in the initial half came after
only a few minutes of play, when
Merlyn Condit of Carnegie got away
on a sparkling 31-yard run to Notre
Dame's 14, and Muha tried to place
kick a field goal from the 19. The
ball went far wide of its mark.
Kerr Scores Por Irish
Thereafter, the South Benders kept
pushing the Tartans back and back
toward their goal posts, and what
finally happened was inevitable.
About midway of the third quarter,
Condit tried a sweeping end run deep
in Carnegie territory, and when he
was struck by about three Irish tack-
lers at once the sphere bounced high
in the air.

Bill Kerr, Notre Dame left end
and outstanding All-America candi-
date, grabbed the flying ball like an
outfielder and raced 19 yards. into
the end zone without a hand brushing
him. Zontini's placement, with Steve
Sitko holding, couldn't have split the
posts more perfectly if a surveyor
had been helping.
Skibos Strike Back
And then the Skibos started some-
thing. Condit and Muha, a pair of
great running backs, fairly took the
Irish defense to pieces. Condit first
darted off tackle and fled 45 yards
before he was pulled down from be-
hind. Then he and Muha slugged
out two more first downs to Notre
Dame's 18, leaving bruised tacklers
in their wake.
Here Condit tried his first pass of
the long drive. It went wild and
was partially blocked by an Irish line-
man, but it finally came down in
the arms of fullback Gerald White.
who plowed on to the six yard stripe
before he was downed. On the third
try, Condit dove across the Notre
Dame goal from the one yard line.
Each team made four first downs,
all of Tech's coming in the course
of its touchdown drive. Total yards
gained were 160 for Notre Dame, 157
for Carnegie. It was that close.

Grantland Rice missed a great show yesterday as once again Tom
Harmon, ace halfback from Gary, Ind., made further claims for All-
American recognition by scoring 21 of Michigan's 27 points against
Yale. The Touchdown Twin hit pay dirt first on a 10-yard plunge
through center, next on a hurdle over the goal from the one-foot line,
and finally on a 59-yard journey around left end. He also converted
three times. Harmon's work yesterday, added to 7 points he scored in
the Michigan State game, 27 against Iowa, and 18 against Chicago,
brought his season total to 73 points.

Swift moving Tom Harmon con-!
tinued his wild gallop toward All-
American fame here Saturday, and
on the sidelines a shivering and
happy cluster of Michigan immortals
smiled and murmured to themselves,
"He's Willie all over again . . . only
two inches taller."
They were the 'M' men of 1901-
1905, returned to the football lands
where once they made Michigan foot-
ball history.,
Willie is William Heston, a pack-
age of gridiron dynamite who the
experts still remember as one of the
greatest halfbacks ever to stick a
cleated shoe into the turf of an
American stadium.
Liken Hammer To Heston
When these men, all of them vet-
erans of the sensational "point-a-
minute" football teams of Coach
Fielding H. Yost, said that the Gary
galloper looked like Heston they were
cheering him with the finest tribute
they knew.
Forest (One-Man-Gang) Evashev-
ski shared the praise. The hard-wal-
lopling Michigan quarterback; was
called the "greatest defensive back
on the field" by Everett Sweeley, foot-
ball captain in 1901, "because he
seems to mean those tackles so thor-
Willie Heston himself attended the
game and praised Evashevski's play-
calling strategy. "It would have been
wonderful to play in that Michigan

backfield out there today," the all-
time All-American halfback declared.
Between halves Coach Yost took
his boys out on the field and placed
them in a huge block M while 53,700
spectators cheered.
Schulz Praises Team
Adolph (Germany) Schulz, a
beaming big man who began the
Michigan line of All-America centers,
was enthusiastic about the perform-
ance of the 1939 Wolverine backfield
yesterday. "I would have loved to
play in front of that outfit," he ex-
claimed. Schulz labeled Capt. Archie
Kodros as a "great center," but he
explained that he played the position
differently in those days. The big
German said that he operated farther
behind the defensive line, maybe five
yards or so back, and then rushed
up when the play arrived.
When Paul Kromer fumbled a punt
early in the second half Sweeley
found fault with "that darn new thin
ball." Sweeley, who never fumbled
a punt in his college career, said
that the ball they use today is all
right for punting, "but our fat one
was lots easier to handle."
