Spartans Watch
Bronco Plays
Michigan State At Peak
Of PhysicalCondition
OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 8.-(P)-The
traveling Spartans of Michigan State
switched trains here this evening on
their way to the west coast and lim-
bered up for 10 minutes before piling
back into their "practice - field
coaches"-to review plays intended for
use against Santa Clara Saturday.
Coach Charley Bachman said his
36 players were at their peak of
physical condition for the season,
and his only regret was that the ath-
letes 'would not get much chance to
actually run up against Bronco for-
mations in practice on a drill field.

Bachman converted the pullman
cars into a theatre to show movies
of last year's State-Santa Clara game
and to give the sophomores an idea of
the power the western college will
display in Kezar Stadium.
The only' injured player on the
squad was guard Ed Abdo and he
played valiantly against Syracuse last
week. The rest of the team, rated
the underdog in Saturday's encounter,
was rested and enlivened by their
14-3 victory over Syracuse.

Only Half A Ball Over t
But It's A Whole Point
Until last Saturday, Washington
and Jefferson was unbeaten and un-
tied, it got that far, though, with the
help of one of the season's freak in-i
W. and J. was playing Geneva and,
with the score 1212, Coach George
Roark sent Lothar Schaefer, big
tackle, to kick the extra point. Schae-
fer gave the ball a whale of a boot
--so hard it split in half.
One half flew off to the side, but

When Bierman assumed control of
Minnesota's gridiron fortunes in 1932,1
the Gophers began their ascendancy I
to the pinnacle of football fame. The
juggernaut powerhouses which came
to be synonymous with Minnesota's
grid representatives grew to be recog-
nized throughout the nation as the
ultimate in modern football perfec-
tion year after year.
Fall Foreseen
But last season experts began to
sense the impending shakiness of the
Gopher empire. Even though Minne-
sota again won the Conference crown,!
there were indications of an immin-
ent decline. A definitely mediocre
crop of sophomores strengthened thej
growing conviction that Minnesota's
downfall was at hand.
The current season has witnessed
the complete collapse of Gopher grid
supremacy. The once-mighty Bier-
man machine has won but one of its
five starts, dropping decisions to Ne-
braska, Ohio State and Northwestern,
and fighting Purdue to a 13-13 stand-
still. The Gophers' lone win came at
the expense of a weak Arizona team,
First November Loss
Last week's loss to Northwestern
marked the almost complete de-
molishment of the remarkable grid-
iron records compiled by the Gophers
under Bierman's guiding hand: IA
was the first time since 1932 that they
had dropped a November contest, Ind
it was the initial time since 1932 that
the other went over the crossbar, and
the officials ruled the extra-point
try was good. W. and J. won, 13-12.

Beat Michigan Last Year t
Last fall the Maize and Blue out-
played the Gophers in their own back-1
yard, had them beat until the final
minutes, only to see the Herd roar
back on Van Every's passes and eke
out a 7-6 win.
Saturday's game between Michigan+
and Minnesota may well be termed+
the turning point of future football
fortunes of both teams, but the meet-
ing also carries much deeper signifi-
cance. If Minnesota wins, it will be
her sixth triumph in as many years-
a feat no other team has ever ac-
complished against the Wolverines.
At 2 p.m. Saturday Michigan foot-I
ball prestige goes on the block.

Peterson Second, Jester
Third In Handicap Run
John McKean and Ernie Peterson
knocked two props out from under
Coach Ken Doherty's first attempt at
being a handicapper by coming in
one-two in the varsity track team's
three and one-half-mile handicap
cross-country run yesterday.
McKean and Peterson each had a
two-minute head start on Tommy
Jester, starting from scratch, who
came in third, 22 seconds behind the
first-place winner, and seven seconds
behind the second man. Karl Wisner
and Bill Ackerman, also scratch start-
ers, followed Jester, with Hall Whitte-
more coming in sixth with his two-
minute handicap, just nosing out Brad
Heyl, another scratch starter.
The first three men each received
a gold medal, and the second trio
were given silver medals.
