Reutter Stars
As Sigma Chis
Beat Phi Delts
Sigs' 15-7 Win Puts Them
In Semi-Finals; Losers
Paced ByMeyer, Hurst
Sigma Chi's powerhouse forged in-1
to the semi-finals of the first-place
interfraternity speedball playoffs yes-
terday with a decisive 15-7 victory'
over Phi Delta Theta. The Phi Delts
managed to remain a threat through
the game, mainly through the efforts
of Jack Meyer and Bill Hurst, and
the brillant work of Bob Mix, goalie,
but the defending champions hadt
too many guns for them. Bob Reut-
ter, who included a field goal in his
six point total, was the big offensive
star for Sigma Chi. Al Kelso and
Jack Cooper turned in their usual
sparkling games, aided by Charlie
Knapp and John Cory.
In a scheduled fourth-place play-
off tilt, Trigon forfeited to Alpha
Sigma Phi.
Kelly Leads Robert Owen
In a first-place independent touch
football playoff game, Robert Owen
got past their first test with a 6-0
win over the Hiawatha Club. Captain
Ralph Kelly sparked the well-bal-
anced Robert Owen entry. Winchell
House lost a thriller to Allen-Rumsey,
2-0, in a second-place tilt. The only
score came in the last minute of play,
When a Winchell back, attempting to
punt, stepped over his own goal line
and was tagged for a safety.
Overtime Battle
Chicago House took the fourth-
place title in an overtime battle with
Michigan: Tied after the regula-
tion playing time, each team,. accord-
ing to a league ruling, took the ball
at midfield for four downs. Chicago's
eleven-yard advance was enough to
beat out Michigan for the crown.
Johnny Por, Hungarian native play-
ing his first game of football, filled
a guard post for Michigan, and divid-
ed honors for the losers with Jerome
Eisenberg. John Hanzlik interpeted
a pass for Chicago's touchdown.

Little Brown Jug Yearns For Return

The Little Brown Jug came sud-
denly to life yesterday.
We were indeed dumbfounded. We
had always pictured the symbol of
Minnesota-Michigan rivalry as a
piece of pottery, or a bit of moulded
clay and it was most amazing to hear
the jug. But we did.
Crooning Jug
There it was. Sitting serenely in
the Minnesota trophy case, singing.
Yes singing . . . "I Want To Go Back
to Michigan, to Dear Ann Arbor
We approached the case and in-
troduced ourselves. The jug was
quite cheerful, and especially so when
we told him we hailed from Michi-
"Really," he said. "Gee, I'm glad
to see you. It's been so long now
since I've had a chance to chat with
a Michigan man. How is everyone
back in the old town. How's Fielding
Yost and Wally Weber. How's Hank
Hatch. There's a real guy. He's the
best fellow that ever took care of me.
Why, he polished the case I stayed in
there in the Field House almost

every day. Nothing like what they
keep me in around here."
Hard To Believe
We still couldn't believe our eyes,
but we decided to keep up the con-
versation, or at least try to. We told
the jug how everyone back home was
beginning to fear that if Michigan
didn't take possession soon, the color
would change from brown to gold.
After all, five years of Golden Gopher
influence can have a lot of effect
on the color of clay.
The jug agreed. "Oh, how I would
like to get back to Ann Arbor al-
ready. Last year I thought sure you
fellows would win. It looked swell
for a while, but that Van Every
turned the tide near the end back to
Minneapolis it was for me."
With this, the Little Brown Jug
started back on his singing. "Back to
Joe's and the Orient. Back to some
of the money I spent."
He's Still Homesick1
Suddenly he changed tunes, and
modestly began chanting, "Ha, ha,
ha. You and me. Little brown jug,

how I love thee. Ha, ha, ha. You
and me. Little brown jug, how I
love thee, etc."
He wouldn't talk again. The little
brown jug is as sad and morbid these
days as a has-been football coach.
The equipment room in Yost Field
House is his real home.
"Come hone, little brown jug,
please come home . . . all is for-
given . . . please," could be heard
from Hank Hatch back among his
piles of helmets, towels and shoes.
Robert Owen Star Hurt
Wally Bejnar, star tackle of the
Robert Owen Cooperative Hou cc
touch football team suffered an in-
jured shoulder yesterday in his team's
14-0 victory over the Hiawatha Club.
He was taken to the University Hos-
Bejnar, a freshman, will probably
not be in shape to take the field 1n
his team's next game. It is not known,
as yet, how serious the injury is.

Harmon Is Second
In Ground Gaining
Tom Harmon dropped into a sec-
ond place tie with Johnny Knolla of
Creighton in national ground gain-
ing, it was announced last night by
the American Football Statistical
Bureau. The Hoosier hammer, who
led the pack last week, has gained 549

gain of 742 yards. Knolla, however,
has played in six games.

undefeated Notre Dame.
Enthusiasm has gone so far here
that some of the more ardent sup-
porters of Dr. Eddie and his little
band of ironmen are talking this
"Why, it'll be an upset if Notre
Dame wins."
They boast of victories over In-
diana, Wisconsin and Purdue, dis-
miss the Michigan defeat with "Aw,
the Wolverines got all the breaks"
and recall the 10 to 7 upset victory
over Notre Dame in 1931 when the

Irish came roaring into Iowa City
with a 20-game winning streak.
There's no such boasting, however,
