Wolverines Stave Off Last Period Rally



Tame Wildcats

Inspired Iowa
Eleven Upsets
Fighting Irish
Last Period Touchdown
Gives Hawkeyes 7-0 Win
Before 50,000 Fans
SOUTH BEND, IND., Nov. 16.-(R)
-Mighty Notre Dame fell from the
ranks of the nation's undefeated and
untied teams today, bowing to the
amazing Iowa Hawkeyes, who per-
formed brilliantly when'the breaks
came their way to score a 7 to 0 vic-
tory before 50,000 shivering specta-
The hopes of the Fighting Irish for
their first perfect season in a decade
foundered on their own mistakes and
the inspired play of the Iowans, who
had lost four games in a row.
Hawkeyes Repulse Irish
Iowa, using only 15 men in the
entire game, staved off every Irish
thrust until the final period when
their opportunity came. Notre Dame,
early in the fourth, drove to the
Hawks' one yard line but the much-
defeated underdogs held and took the
ball on downs. Jim Youell punted
out and the Irish roared back to the
10 yard line.
At this point Captain Milt Piepul
fumbled and Iowa's captain, Mike
Enich, snatched the ball in mid-air
and ran 36 yards to the Iowa 46.
The aroused Irish stopped the at-
tack and Youell punted to the Irish
25. Al Couppee intercepted Bob Sag-
gau's pass on the first play and re-
turned eight yards to the 23. The
Hawks drove to the 17 and Bill Gal-
lagher tried a field goal from the
25 but his boot was wide of the up-
Bagarus' Fumble Costly
The' luckless Irish started from
their own 20, but again on the first
play little Steve Bagarus fumbled
and Ken Pettit recovered on the
Notre Dame 24. Big Bill Green
roared through the Irish for 22 yards
in two plays, Gallagher added one at
center and then Green smashed over
right guard for the touchdown. Gal-
lagher place-kicked the point.
The Hawks, previous to their scor-
ing outburst, had not advanced be-
yond the Notre Dame 35, apparently
having little semblance of either a
running or passing attack. The Irish,
likewise, were not too impressive ex-
cept in spurts.
The victory was Iowa's third over
Notre Dame in as many games be-
tween the two teams and on each
occasion the Irish approached the
game undefeated.

For Purple

Westfall Score Twice
Northwestern Stopped On Michigan Six Yard Line
After Hahnenstein Runs 80 Yards For Touchdown

(Continued from Page 1)
Harold "Tippy" Lockhard, playing
in the right half spot for the Wol-
verines, set up the second scoring
play four minutes later when he
returned one of Hahnenstein's punts
30 yards to the Wildcat five.
Two plunges by Harmon carried
the ball to the one-foot line from
where Westfall bolted over into the
end zone. Once again, Harmon place-
kicked the ball squarely between the
Purple Tallies On Pass
Northwestern's first tally, like its
second, came with aelightning-like
thrust. Four plays after receiving
thenext Michigan kickoff and on the
first play of the secon~d quarter, the
heralded Bill deCorrevont faded back
and shot a well-placed aerial bomb
from Michigan's 48 yard line to the
Wildcat substitute end, Bob Motl, on
the 25. Motl tucked the ball under
his arm and romped away from West-
fall to the goal-line. Clawson's try for
the extra point went to the right of
the posts.
The third Michigan touchdown also
resulted from a poor punt, this time
from the usually reliable toe of de-
Correvont. He sliced one out on his
own 26-yard line and six plays later,
Westfall smashed over center from

Ed Frutig, playing his last game in the Michigan Stadium, was a
shining light in the Wolverine victory over Northwestern yesterday. In
the first few minutes of play he blocked a kick to set the stage for
Michigan's first score and went on to snare two Harmon-thrown passes
and turn in a stellar defensive role.I

the three to end the Wolverine scor-
But the Wildcats weren't through
yet. For the next period and a half
they engaged in a punting duel with
Harmon, and with 11 minutes left in
the final period, the Purple started
a determined drive.
After Harmon had punted over the
Northwestern goal, Hahnenstein took
the ball from center on his own 20,
sped for his right end, cut sharply
between Frutig and tackle Al Wistert
and was on his way.
Harmon alone remained in his path,
but a host of Purple blockers swept
the drifting halfback aside and Hahn-
enstein continued on his merry 80-
yard gallop. Dick Erditz, a reserve
quarterback, came into the lineup and
kicked the extra point.
That changed the complexion of
the ball game. The Wildcats needed
only one touchdown to deadlock the
battle, and they went about getting it
with all their versatile might.
Northwestern Threatens
Hahnenstein, Clawson and Ike Kep-
ford alternated in driving the pig-
skin toward the Michigan goal. The
tired Wolverines, most of whom had
played the entire battle, fell before
the Purple blockers. N'orthwestern
pushed closer and ploser.

play romped around his left end to
the Wolverine 15 for a first down.
Hahnenstein was tackled on the 14
by Bill Melzow, who took over Bob
Kolesar's guard berth when the soph-
omore was kicked in the head in the
second quarter.
But on the second down the redhead
cut back sharply over his right tackle
to the seven. Once again, Hahnen-
stein took the ball from center and
plowed into the right side of the
Wolverine line for a yard.
Then came the fourth down play
and Westfall. The valiant Michigan
defense had held. The Wildcats final
threat with less than a minute left
to play was halted when Paul Kromer
intercepted deCorrevont's long pass
on the Michigan 30.

To Capture Conference Grid Crown

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 16. -(AP)-
Minnesota's powerhouse won the Wes-
tern Conference championship here
today by unleashing a high voltage
attack that shocked Purdue's Boiler-
makers into defeat, 33 to 6.
It was Minnesota's seventh straight
victory of the season, including five
Conference contests, and left it in
position to bring a brilliant unde-
feated season to a close in the final
game with Wisconsin at Madison next
Michigan helped the Gophers to the
title by eliminating Northwestern at
Ann Arbor today.
Minnesota power was at its best
\as its ground game rolled rough shod
over the Boliermakers, but it still
showed a weakness against passes,
Purdue taking to the air to set up
its touchdown.
Purdue, held to a net of 23 yards
by rushing, fired 33 passes of which
13 were completed for 126 yards.
Meantime, Minnesota relied almost
entirely on power plays that pro-
duced more than 300 yards.
There was little doubt about the
eventual outcome from the opening
kickoff when Bobby Paffrath took the
ball on his own 15 and fumbled.
George Franck, Gopher speedster, was
there to pick it up on the 20 yard
line and he returned 80 yards for a
touchdown after skirting the entire
Purdue team, bunched in front of him.
Gordon Paschka placekicked the ex-
tra point and Minnesota led, 7 to
0, with only 16 seconds of playing
time elapsed.
The second Gopher touchdown in
the first period came after Franck
had returned a punt 31 yards to the

Purdue 31 yard line. Bruce Smith
and Franck in turn made it a first
down on the 19 yard line, and after
Paffrath lost three yards, Smith cut
through right tackle to score. Joe
Mernik placekicked the extra point.
Purdue's touchdown early in the
fourth quarter came on a . series of
passes, keystone of which was one
from Galvin to Smerke for 25 yards
to the Gopher 12 and another by
the same combination to the three
yard line. From there fullback
John Petty needed four line plays to
carry it over.
Don Scott Leads OSU
To Win Over Illini
CHAMPAIGN, ILL., Nov. 16.-(iP)-
Ohio State's Don Scott, striving for
1940 All-America quarterback hon-
ors, scored two touchdowns today to
enable the Buckeyes to hand Illi-
nois its sixth straight defeat.
The 14 to 6 result gave 15,571 shiv-
ering fans, among them 4,000 visit-
ing Dads, a Champaign headache.
The Illini are winding up a disas-
trous season, having beaten only
Bradley in the first game of the year.
Ohio State scored in the first and
third periods, with Scott throwing
his 215 pounds across the line each
time and then kicking the extra
The Buckeyes started a 72-yard
touchdown drive as soon as they took
the ball after the opening kickoff.
Starting on their own 28, they drove
across in nine plays, with Jim Lang-
hurst once ripping off 25 yards and
Jim Strausbaugh 18 to carry to the
Illinois 22. Here the Buckeyes drew

a five yard penalty for offside, but
Kinkade reeled off 12 yards to the
Illini 15.
Langhurst made a first down on
the seven and then plunged to the
one-yard stripe, with Scott smashing
Badgers Top Favored
Indiana Eleven
Madison Wis., Nov. 16 -(R)-Wis-
consin moved into the first division of
the Western Conference football
standings today by defeating a fav-
ored Indiana eleven, 27 to 10, before
a Dad's Day crowd of 16,000.
Indiana started impressively by
scoring a field goal shortly after the
game started, but the Badgers retal-'
iated with a touchdown a few minutes
later. Wisconsin added three more in
the second period capitalizing on
Hoosier fumbles. Indiana scored again
late in the game on a pass, Hal Hursh
to Archie Harris.
Detroit Red Wings Tie
World Champion Rangers
NEW YORK, Nov. 16. -(A)- The
rejuvenated Red Wings of Detroit,
out-lasting the world champions in
a hard-fought National Hockey
League contest, got their second
straight tie with the New York Ran-
gers tonight before a crowd of 13,048.
After being presented with the
Stanley Cup in a pre-game cere-
mony and then toying with the young
Red Wings foir two periods, the
Rangers faded and had to fight dan-
gerously in a 10-minute overtime
period to gain a 3-3 draw.

Red-headed Ollie Hahnenstein
provided Michigan supporters with
many an anxious moment yester-
day when he spearheaded a Wild-
cat drive that fell just short of
bringing the Purple up on even
terms with the Varsity.
Cornell Team
Has Close Call
Texas A&M Tops Rice;
Georgetown Loses
(By The Associated Press)
A wave of upsets shocked the foot-
ball world yesterday and missed Cor-
nell's Big Red squad by exactly six
Dartmouth had Cornell 3-0 on a
fourth quarter field goal by Bob
Krueger until Walter Scholl passed
the Big Red down the field and fin-
ally contacted Bill Murphy in the
end zone for the winning touchdown
with six seconds to go. There was
considerable argument that Cornell
had been given an extra down at this
critical stage of the proceedings but
the 7-3 final score stood and Cornell
stretched its unbeaten streak through
19 games.
John Kimbrough picked up 108
yards in 18 tries as Texas A. and M.
routed Rice, 25-0, and now faces only
one hurdle-Texas-in a drive for a
second successive Southwest title and
a possible bid to the Rose Bowl.
Boston College, paced by the great
triple threat back, Charley O'Rourke
and a great line, spotted Georgetown
10 points in the first five minutes and
then handed the Hoyas their first de-
feat in 24 games, 19-18. A crowd of
40,000 turned out at Boston for this
duel of two of the biggest teams in
intercollegiate football.

Frosh Gridimen
Intrasquad Tilt
Coach Wally Weber wil send his
yearling grid charges before the re-
viewing stand on Ferry Field at 4 p.m.
tomorrow in the grand finale of the
current freshman football season.
The occasion is the annual intra-
squad tilt that marks the close of the
frosh season. All of the numeral win-
ners will participate in an attempt to
display their gridiron ability before
Coach Fritz Crisler and his staff of
assistants who will be among the on-
lookers searching for new Michigan
Squads Evenly Divided
Tomorrow's game promises to be
an even, well-balanced affair. Weber
has divided the squad into two even-
ly-matched teams, the Reds and the
Blues, and it should be a tight con-
test replete with action.
On paper the Reds appear to have
the strongest line, with center Herv
Pregulman, end John Richter, guard
Julius Franks, and tackle Vince Sec-
ontine heading the list. All of these
men are hard-charging, fast-start-
ing blockers as well as deadly tack-
lers, and will undoubtedly provide
the Blues with stiff oppostion.
In the backfield the edge has to be
conceded to the Blue team. Featur-
ing speedy Walt Derby, elusive Zion.
Boor, plunging Tom Kuzma and jolt-
ing Joe Joseph, the Blues promise to
display a dazzling, well-executed at-
Derby May Not Play
There is a possibility, however, that
Derby will be unable to play because
of a leg injury sustained in practice
two weeks ago. In this case his posi-
tion will be capably filled by Robert
Stenberg, transfer from the nowi
gridless University of Chicago.
The punting chores will be handled
by Paul White for the Reds and Kuz-
ma for the Blues. Don Robinson and
White will attend to the passing for
the Red team, while Derby and Boor
will flip the pigskin for the blue-
shirted gridders.
