superior foe. During the first 15 min-
utes of play, Zuppke's charges carried
the ball four times and punted twice.
That was all they saw of the ball.
Throughout the day, the Indians
threatened the Wolverine goal only
once, and that came in the second
period after Michigan had scored its
third touchdown. The Crisler men
tallied this time on a well-executed
pass play. After marching from
their own 38 to the Illinois 35, the
Wolverines opened up the neatest
play of the game.
Frutig Scores On Pass
Harmon took the ball from center,
faded back to his left and rifled the
pigskin to end Ed Frutig on the 30.
A vicious block by Evashevski and the
speedy River Rouge flanker, playing
one of the greatest games of his
career, romped down the left side-
lines to the goal line. Harmon again
missed connections for the extra
point.
Then came Illinois' only serious bid
of the day. On a barrage of passes,
the Indians marched to the Michigan
14, where Frutig stopped the threat
by intercepting Worban's pass and
carrying the ball back to the Michi-
gan 38.
Late in the period, Harmon, on
fourth down with still five yards to
go, stepped back to the Illinois' 20-
yard stripe and sent a place-kick
whirling straight between the up-
rights. It gave Michigan the three
points it had missed on conversions.
The second half found a bogged
down Michigan attack. Their re-
vengeful appetites having been satis-
fied, the Wolverines closed up shop
and eased the pace.
Westfall Goes Over
The final Michigan tally came mid-
way in the third period, and once
again it was "Bullet Bob" who led
the charge. Alternating with Har-
mon and Tippy Lockhard in carry-
ing the ball to the three, Westfall
stormed over the beaten Illini cen-
ter path for his first points of the
season. This time Harmon's conver-
sion was good.
Twenty-eight points behind, the
Indians opened up their razzle-dazzle,
but the rain and Michigan were too
much for them and the scoring was

Milo Sukup Forgets
Everything But...
This should make the girl friend
(or friends) of Milo Sukup, that
chunky Wolverine guard who serves
as a spearhead for every Michigan
play, very proud.
Sukup got into trouble while run-
ning interference for Tom Harmon
yesterday and ended up-on his back
and out. Revived, Milo forgot who he
was, where he was, and what he was
supposed to do out there before 40,-
000 people, his teammates report.
The only thing he could remember
was that he had an important date
after the game, they charge. Sukup's
romantic amnesia is gone today and
it's rumored he and his girl (or girls)
are doing fine.

O. S. U. Loses Thriller To Gophers;
Northwestern, Penn Gain Easy Wins

!COLUMBUS, 0., Oct. l9.-(.D)-A,
great Minnesota teamwrecked Ohio
State's hopes of retaining the West-
tern Conference grid title today. Be-
fore 63,199 rain-drenched fans, the
Golden Gophers won 13 to 7 after
epling two Ohio threats near the
goal line.
It was a game repleted with
"breaks" the most heart-breaking
one of which came to the Bucks with
less than two minutes to go.
Trailing 13 to 7, the Ohio team
dipped deeply into its razzle-dazzle
bag to surge from their own 35 to
the Gopher one-yard line.
In that 64-yard jaunt were three
completed passes, all tossed by quar-
terback Don Scott. Then came a
Scott to Tom Kinkade forward, with
a Kinkade to Leslie Horvath lateral
tacked on the end, which carried to
the Minnesota six.
Scott, who during the final surge
had gambled on a fourth down run-
ning play when he needed five yards
-and made six himself-banged to
the one-yard mark.
Then came the break. Claude
White, Ohio center who had played
the entire game on the slippery field,
came up with his only poor pass of
the fray. Langhurst fell on the ball
on the 13, but Ohio's chance had
flown.
Bruce Smith, Minnesota's 193-
pound halfback, was the game's out-
standing star. He counted both
Gopher touchdowns, one in the first

period from the 10-yard line on a
fake pass and one in the second on
a three-yard plunge. They climaxed
drives of 55 and 59 yards, respectively.
MADISON, Wis.. Oct. 19.-(P).-
The Northwestern Wildcats, con-
querors of Ohio State and Syracuse,
remained among the nation's unde-
feated teams today by overpowering
the University of Wisconsin Badgers,
27 to 7. before 25,000 spectators.
Floyd Chambers accounted for two
Northwestern scores while George
Benson and Bill DeCorrevont sup-
plied the others. Jim McFadzean
countered for Wisconsin.
DeCorrevont and Don Clawson,
Purple fullback, were injured during
the game, but reports from the dress-
ing room said both would be able to
play next week.
NEW YORK, Oct. 19.-(P)-It took.
a discerning, not to say hyper-sensi-
tive eye, to discover a legitimate foot-
ball upset today.
Almost without a break, the nation's
college leaders moved smoothly past
their third October tests and left the
general situation virtually unchanged.
Not in years have the results on any
full football Saturday program so
closely followed form.
Tennessee gave new evidence (if
any was needed) of its terrific power
as it steam-rollered Alabama's good
team into submission, 27-12, before

25,000. Little Johnny Butler was the
spark plug the Volunteers needed,
scoring a pair of touchdowns on runs
of 68 and 49 yards, and passing for
another.
Notre Dame, boasting its best team
since Elmer Layden took charge, roll-
ed over Carnegie Tech, 61-0, using 67
players as a crowd of 35,000 looked on.
This head-lined an intersectional pro-
gram that otherwise proved nothing
except that no section of the country
has any monopoly on football talent.
Duke, benefitting by an 80-yard
touchdown run by Moffat Storer, de-
feated Colgate, 13-0, but Columbia's
smart Lions paid that one off by de-
feating Georgia, 19-13, in a thrilling
duel which saw sophomore Paul Gov-
ernali of Columbia assume the star-
ring role.
Carl Snavely used every man on
the Cornell bench as the Big Red's
long-range attack swamped Syra-
cuse, 33-6, while Francis Xavier Rea-
gan, Penn's great- back, scored 31
points as the Quakers won a high-
scoring duel with Princeton, 46-28. A
snowstorm failed to halt Len Esh-
mont and Fordham and the Rams
took Pitt over the hurdles, 24-12.
De-emphasized Yale found the win-
ning combination against Dartmouth
and won 13-7 as Ted Harrison com-
pleted a touchdown pass to John Reed
in the last 30 seconds. Army and Har-
vard played a 6-6 draw while Holy
Cross won over N.Y.U., 13-7.

Ed Frutig, veteran Wolverine end, played one of the greatest
games of his varsity career yesterday, as Michigan; trounced
Illinois. The River Rouge flanker caught a Harmon-thrown pass
and raced 30 yards for a touchdown, intercepted an Illini aerial, and
turned in a stellar defensive performance.
