' ,E
Wild Wolverines, Pensive Pennsylvania ...
There was a striking difference between the Penn and Michigan locker-
rooms after yesterday's gridiron clash.
Over on the Wolverine side, there was joy and happiness. The
gridders were yelling and singing. Congratulatory greetings and sound
thumps on the backs were as common as autograph seekers yelping for
Harmon outside the door.
Crisler was beaming like a slap-happy pappy. This was a triumph that1
tasted sweeter than honey-coated saccharin pills.
"You know, all the boys played swell. I'm really proud of them,"
he told the reporters and well-wishers who had gathered around. "Cy
(Ceithaml) really came through, didn't he?"
The gridders were happy down to the last sub. Harmon and Frutig posed
for pictures chewing on apples. The injured squadmen, Evy, Kelto, Nelson
and Wistert, were smiling and cheering despite their troubles.
Whitey II had to have "Jeep" Mehaffey dress him. He couldn't bend
his bruised knee. le didn't show it on the field.
Husky Al rose to his heights yesterday. It was an exhibition you'd hardly
expect from a sophomore who never played high school ball, a lad who fol-
lowed behind a brother who had done so well. Injured in the second period,
he and Fritz were injected into the lineup when the Wolverines made their
gallant goal-line stand. They couldn't hold him back all afternoon, but
they took him to the hospital when it was all over.
After paying our visit to the victorious Michigan squad, we strolled
across the hall to see the men of Munger.. . and what a difference.
Francis Reagan, his hat lowered in front to hold a disappointed face
from the public's view, had little to say. This was his bad day. He came
to Ann Arbor in greatness, and went back to Penn as just another half-
back. His All-American hopes were left firmly planted to the Stadium
sod. His gridiron dreams were left draped across Tom Harmon's cleats.
Over in a corner, George Munger was talking quietly' with an elderly
friend. Fifteen minutes before we had walked in, Munger's chin had struck
against his ankles. It had sunk further since then.
We took one look at his teary eyes and decided this was no time for
questions. We felt more at home on the other side of the tunnel.
But we have no sympathies for the Quakers. They should have known
before they came here what we have known for a long time but have been
afraid to say.
Michigan has a great football team.

Tom Harmon completely overshad-

yesterday afternoon, Bob McLeod,
flashy All-American right-halfback of
Dartmouth's 1939 powerhouse, com-

ternoon.
"Harmon," he continued, "is a com-
pletely polished player, displaying a
speed and drive that are as great as
any I have ever, seen. Harmon is so
fast that he makes it almost impos-
sible for a defensive player to stop
him, obviating a need for a great
deal of shifty running," McLeod said.
"It was Harmon who dominated the
play completely, in my estimation,'
although every man who played for
Michigan proved that you have a top-

Ceithaml yesterday erased all re-
maining vestiges of doubt of his fu-
ture as a truly great Wolverine quart-
erback
Forif any sophomore has ever haft
the gridiron heat turned on him full
blast, it was the husky sophomore
field general against Penn's power-
ful Quakers.
Outlook Was Dark
The situation was enough to strike
unreasonable fear into even the most
courageous of gridiron hearts. To-
ward the end of the second period
of the nation's number one grid at-
traction Michigan's mighty machine
held a scant 7-0 lead over the fight-
ing Quakers. Then on a characterist-
ic bone-crushing block, Michigan's
magnificent Capt. Forest Evashevski,
injured his shoulder while paving the
way for a teammate's punt return.
Sixty thousand dismal groans rose
heavily over the playing field, as
heavy-hearted fans recalled the two
disastrous losses inflicted on the
Maize and Blue last year with the
rugged Evashevski out of the lineup.
Then in came Ceithaml, 190 pounds
of raw courage and determination.
The rest is now Wolverine football
history.
Ceithaml's Work Brilliant
Dynamically, the hard-hitting soph-
omore hurled himself into the gaping
hole and left nothing to be desired.
On defense he was the acme of per-
fection. Time and again he cut down
charging Quaker backs with terrific
back-breaking tackles. He knocked
down passes. He broke up interfer-
ence.
Offensively, big George was little
short of brilliant. He guided the Cris-
lermen with the finesse of an Eva-
shevski.
Today Ceithaml stands firmly in
the long shadow cast by Michigan's
long line of traditionally great quart-
erbacks.
flight ball team of championship
calibre. They all helped Harmon show
the tough Pennsylvania gang that
Tom truly deserves to be an All-
American," McLeod concluded.

Last-Second Wisconsin Pass Downs
Purdue, 14-13; Wildcats Victorious

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Oct. 2-(A)-
Wisconsin's football Badgers made
Frank Merriwell look like a piker to-
day as they scored two touchdowns in
the last three minutes of play, the last
one in the very final second, to nose
out Purdue, 14 to 13, before 21,000
spectators.
After an 84-yard march had pro-
duced the first Wisconsin touchdown,
the payoff blow came on a pass from
Johnny Tennant to Raymond Kreick
when the big clock showed a second to
go. Fading back from the Purdue 35
after the boilermakers had elected
to lose the ball on the downs rather
than kick, Tennant passed to Kreick,
who took the ball on the Purdue 10
and galloped over for the tying points.
Then just as the gun fired, Bob
Ray delivered the killing punch, a
perfect placekick for the extra point.
Northwestern Stops
Indiana, 20-7
EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 26-(A")-
Northwestern's Wildcats, scenting the
Western Conference Championship,
came from behind in a desperate
fourth period surge today to conquer
Indiana 20 to 7 before 40,000 specta-
tors.
The victory enabled Northwestern
to retain its position as the nation's
undefeated and untied eleven.
Up to the middle of the fourth
period the Hoosiers not only led the

largest crowd to see a game here in
11 years.
The Irish, racking up their fourth
victory in as many starts this fall,
won as they pleased. with Notre Dame
second and third stringers seeing
as much service as the first eleven.
The victors scored twice in the open-
ing period and added touchdowns in
the second and fourth quarters as
Illinois failed to threaten seriously
until the final minute of play.
