period after a brilliant 79-yard drive.
George Benson missed the try for
point which would have given the
Wildcats attie, but Northwestetn
gamely battled back to threaten
again, only to lose its chance on' a
pass interception.
Northwestern led at the end of
the first period, 6 to 0, as the result
of a beautiful pass, Hahenstein to
Chambers, and 25-yard sprint down
the sidelines over the goal by Cham-
bers. Don Clawson's placement fail-
ed.
On the ensuing kickoff, Minnesota
reeled off a brilliant 61-yard drive
for a touchdown and a lead it held
to the finish. The Gophers started on
theirownk39, with Smith, Sweiger,
and Franck smashing to the North-
western six. On the first play of the
next period Sweiger hit center for
a touchdown and Mernik booted the
point that won the game.
Minnesota's second touchdown
came in the third period after Bob
Paffrath intercepted a Wildcat pass.
Sweiger and Franck teamed up in
another blistering demonstration of
power before Sweiger rammed right
guard for a touchdown. Gordon Pas-
cha's try for point went wide.
Northwestern, after the kickoff,
started on its own 20, and with
Clawson ripping big lines in the
Gopher forward wall, the Wildcats
drove to theMinnesota 27. Clawson
worked a pass to Hahnenstein to
'move to the Gopher eight and on
the fourth play Hanhnenstein hit
right tackle for a touchdown. It was
then that Benson missed the kick
that would have meant a tie.

A Bitter Pill
Fate struck a bitter blow at Michigan's high-riding football forces
yesterday.
For weeks, the undefeated Wolverines had looked forward to smash-
ing a seven-year Minnesota gridiron jinx. It was in the back of every
one of their minds. This was the year, they felt. The last year of
the sensational Harmon-Evashevski duo. It was now or never, and it
must be now.
Ever since 1933, the Wolverines have been unable to crush the Golden
Avalanche. That year, they battled to a thrilling scoreless tie. From 1934
till now, the Gophers had held a firm grasp on the historic "Old Brown Jug."
This was to be the year.
Following the Penn encounter last week, Michigan's training depart-
ment announced that the Wolverines would be in perfect condition by the
time that Nov. 9th rolled around.
Fate had been kind to the men of Michigan. Five games had been
completed 'without a major injury. That indeed was a break for a
team without adequate replacements.
Certainly, this was to be the year.
Then came yesterday and its bitter blow that smacked back with a re-
sounding thud.
The "One-Man Gang"' won't be able to face the challenging
Gopher warriors.
His shouder injury, at first believed to be nothing but a minor bruise.
proved to be a bone chip that will require Michigan's great captain to go
under the knife today. How long the operation will keep him out of the
line-up is as yet unknown. But the Minnesota struggle will be without his
mule-plow shoulders. That, at least, is a certainty.
It's a tough break. The big quarterback was on his way to his
greatest season. His jarring brand of blocking, his dynamic defensive
work made Michigan of 1940 what it is today . . . an undefeated, untied
eleven with a probable ranking by the experts as the second best grid-
iron machine in the nation.
The Wolverines will miss Evashevski. Certainly, they will. He is a
spark-plug, a great leader, and a tremendously affable captain. Every mem-
ber on the squad admires him, enjoys his wit and respects his football talents.
Last year, Michigan received a stunning upset at the hands of Bob
Zuppke's Illini. The big quarterback had been injured early in the battle,
and stumbled through the game. He was way off his usual charging form.
His teammates recognized what Evy's injury had meant. Harmon
himself admitted when all was over that "If Evy had been 100 per cent,
it would have been a different story."
But this year should and must be different. Remember that this has'
been set aside as Michigan's year to crack the Gopher grasp on the jug.
In one way we are fortunate. Last week's game against Penn proved
that George Ceithanil is an excellent football player. His blocking, at
times, was as efficient and crisp as that of his captain. His signal calling
was worthy of applause. On defense, he still has much to learn. He's no
Evashevski. No, but he's Ceithaml, and that was good enough to carry]
the Wolverine attack during the second half of the Quaker battle.l
With Ceithaml in the line-up, the Wolverines have a combination
that can hold its own against the Gophers. What is more, Michigan will '
have a combination that can beat any squad next week if it's imbued
with the right spirit.
And that band of Wolverines that takes the field against the Gophers in
Minneapolis Saturday will be in the right spirit.
They'll be fighting to win for their injured captain . . even though
they're without him.
Remember, this is the year. It must be.

Bone Chip In Shoulder;
'Operation Not Serious,
Dr. Hammond Reveals

bone, and the operation will take
only a short while. We won't even
keep him in the hospital for long."
Capt. Evashevski will enter the
hospital this morning.
Whether he plays -against North-
western and Ohio State on the fol-
lowing weeks will be determined by
the swiftness with which the wound
heals. Dr. Hammond said "there
was every reason to believe" the
shoulder in time would be just as
useful as it ever was.
This injury strikes at Michigan
just a year behind a similar mis-
fortune in 1939. Evy received a bad-
ly strained ankle intthe week before
the Minnesota contest, and subse-
quently saw no action. The Gophers
then trounced Michigan, 20-7.
Crisler In Evanston
This season Evashevski's jolting
blocks and clever piloting have con-
tributed heavily to five Wolverine
gridiron successes. He has carried
the ball only once, lending his talents
instead to work horse chores. Occa-
sionally he takes a turn at pass
snatching.
Ceithaml played brilliantly in the
second half of the Penn contest.
Coach Crisler called his performance
"especially good." It was ironical
that Crisler should be in Evanston
scouting two future enemies at the
very moment the X-rays told their
sorry story in Ann Arbor. He swal-
lowed the bitter pill later.
Dr. Hammond explained that the
chipped bone was discovered only
after the heavy first swelling had
receded. Thus it was that every
Michigan fan took a cheerful air
toward the Penn game mishap until'
today.
Members of the Michigan team,
learning the news, were disappointed
but not discouraged. First stringer
Ed Frutig phrased the sentiments
when he said:
"We'll win. Don't worry!"

MADISON, Wisc., Nov. 2-(k')-
Wisconsin, aided by acting captain
Johnny Tennant's 62-yard touch-
down sprint in the final period, de-
feated Illinois, 13 to 6 today in a
Western Conference football clash be-
fore 35,000 spectators.
The Badgers, after a brilliant op-
ening period, were outplayed most of
the way by the courageous. Illinois
eleven which threatened throughout
the game with its passing attack and
end thrusts.
The Badger outlook continued to be
dark early in the fourth quarter
when Dick Good, substitute Illinois
halfback, intercepted Tennant's pass
and ran it back to the Wisconsin
44.
Two plays later, however, Bob Mc-
Kay, substitute center, intercepted
Good's aerial on Wisconsin's 38. On
the next play, Tennant, trapped be-
hind the line, elected to run. Escap-
ing the Illini forwards, he swung
wide to his right, and behind good
blocking, ran for a touchdown. Bob
Ray, substitute fullback, kicked the
extra point.
Ohio State Stops
Indiana, 21-6
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 2-(;P)-Ohio
State's husky gridders halted their
streak of defeats at three today to
hand the Hoosiers a 21 to 6 setback in
a Western Conference fray before 56,-
667 fans in the Buckeye stadium.
Desperate after losing to North-
western, Minnesota and Cornell in

a row, the Bucks took no chances
today. They scored two touchdowns
on nine playsin the opening session,
moved 40 yards for another in ten
plays as the second period opened,
and then coasted.
Capt. Jim Langhurst, Ohio's 190-
pound fullback, accounted for two
scores and halfback Tom Kinkaid the
other. Langhurst got his on one-foot
plunges, while Kinkaid slipped over
tackle for 13 yaras to score stand-
ing up.
Boilermakers Hit
Comeback Trail
IOWA CITY, Ia., Nov. 2-(R)-The
Boilermakers of old Purdue, desperate
for victory after two Western Confer-
ence reverses, hit the comeback trail
with a vengeance today by crushing
Iowa's Hawkeyes, 21 to 6, before
40,7010 (correct) homecoming fans
today.
Purdue, shunted into the short end
of a 6-to-0 score when a terrific
break gave Iowa its touchdown early
in the second quarter, fought right
back to the front with a 66-yard
touchdown march and clinched the
decision with touchdowns in the third
and fourth quarters.
Only five times did the Boilermak-
ers swarm beyond the midfield but
on three occasions they had the pay-
off punch. It was a different story,
however, for the Hawkeyes, who twice
failed to produce the touchdown spark
when glorious opportunities beckoned.
