careers today, had each scored a
touchdown in the pillaging first half
drive:
No Letdown
There was no letdown in the third
and fourth periods either. Michigan
kept marching, driving, scoring with-
out any apparent resistance. The
Wolverines' 77 yard march early in
the third quarter required just 12
plays to carry the ball across. After
using the land route to take the ball
to the Ohio 41, Harmon sandwiched
an 11 yard gallop with two completed
passes to Frutig, the second in the
end zone to garner the fourth Wol-
verine touchdown and again by a
Michigan senior.
After that, it was no contest. The
results had been clearly decided and
it was only a matter of what the
final score would be.
Cracks Grange's Record
Harmon with 31 touchdowns to
his three year credit still needed an-
other to crack Grange's long stand-
ing record, and it was only five min-
utes later that he got it. This time,
after Michigan had driven the ball
to Ohio's 18 yard line, Tornado Tom
faded back to pass, but instead roared
to the right sidelines and behind a
host of Maize and Blue interference
stormed into the end zone standing
up.
That made it 32 for the Ace, and
the 33rd was yet to come. Late in
the final period, he culminated a
53 yard Wolverine drive by crash-
ing over his own right tackle from'
the Ohio seven. His kick for the
point was good and the Michigan
total for the day had been raised
to 40.
And so a brilliant season that
started nine weeks ago with a 41-0
triu phnover the GoldenBears of
California was completed today in
the huge Ohio horseshoe stadium
with a 40-0 shellacking of the Buck-
eyes.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 23.-They turned the lights out on the phe-
nomenal collegiate career of Tom Harmon here in Ohio Stadium today.
Thirty-eight seconds before the blast of a gun spelled gridiron peace
for another year, 73,648 thrilled spectators rose to their feet to pay tribute
to the greatest football player of the modern era.
A fleet, slim gridder named Clifford Wise raced onto the field from
the Wolverine bench. The crowd was tense and silent. They watched
eagerly as Wise reported to the referee, they sensed what was to come.
Then as a weary warrior, shirt tattered and pants splattered, galloped
off the field, from the stands came a thunderous blast of cheers and yells
that livened the drizzly gloom surrounding Columbus town.
They weren't satisfied to stamp their dampened feet against the stadi-
um cement, pound their cold hands together, and howl till their voices
cracked. Many of the huge throng ran to the field to get .,a.
one last close look. They pulled at his jersey and grabbed
at "Ole 98" on his back. They pounded him and pushed
him. They tried to raise him on their shoulders. But r.
with a broad and proud smile on his battered face, Michi-
gan's Hoosier Hurricane fought his way through them{
with the samhe power that has enabled him to crash past <
Wolverine opponents for the last three years.'

Paul Kromer blazed his way back
to the headlines once again yester-
day as'he climaxed his amazing
comeback with a thrilling 80-yard
touchdown run on a punt return,
NoWho'sBestU

And while cheers and yells and foot stamping died
out tonight, they were still talking about the great
Harmon in this unhappy home of the badly-beaten
Buckeyes.

They called him the greatest football performer that ever lived.
They accepted no comparisons. They had seen for themselves, and that
was enough.
Over a sloppy stadium turf, he had run wild against Ohio. Red Grange's
scoring record had been soundly cracked, despite weather that was definitely
not for Harmon.
Tom, an angling runner that relies on cutbacks and sudden jerks to
break through opposing tacklers, had been stopped twice already this year by
muddy sod. But today in singing his swan song he dazzled the Buckeye
squad with a sensational display of running, passing and kicking. He was
All-American in every respect.
And now the name Harmon is nothing but a memory at Michigari.
It is a memory of three spectacular gridiron years that started in the
Michigan stadium in 1938, when Harmon, sent in as substitute midway
in the opening Michigan State game scampered and hurdled his way
over fallen Spartan defensemen for long gains., It is a memory of three
golden gridiron years that ended when Wise raced onto the field this
afternoon.
During that period, Harmon has scored 33 touchdowns, kicked two field
goals, and 33 points after touchdown for a total of 237 points. If that were
not enough, 16 other Michigan touchdowns resulted directly from his passes.
All in all, he carried the ball 398 times and made 2,134 yards over the
rushing route, he tossed 233 passes and completed 101 of them for 1,399.
Only 20 were intercepted by Wolverine opponents.
That makes Harmon good for 3,533 yards gained during his brilliant
collegiate career. It's a distance of almost three miles.
With Harmon goes Michigan's dynamic captain, Forest Evashevski,
one of the greatest blocking backs that ever lived. He was more than a
Britton to the Hammer, he was the leader that has kept the Wolverines
spiritually at their peak for all eight games this year. He was a line-
backer second to none.
Also through is daring Ed Frutig, affable, .good-natured, and yet a
gridiron sparkplug. Then there's Ralph Fritz, under-rated guard to whom
today's game was dedicated. It was his 23rd birthday and the entire squad
sang for him in the dressing room when it was over.
Joe Rogers, Milo Sukup, Paul Kromer, Harry Kohl, Ed Czak, they all
became Michigan memories in the Ohio stadium this afternoon.
Football, it seems, won't be the same next year without these figures.
We'll miss them.

13-0. But asdarkness blanketed
Franklin Field and ,the final whistle
blew, Penn was the winner by 22-20
in a thriller the equal of any these
ancient gridiron rivals have ever
staged.
It was a grand triumph for Penn,
beaten only by Michigan this year,
and a grand finale for theRed and
Blue's fine heavy duty back, Fran-
cis Xavier Reagan. Performing before
a capacity crowd of 79,935, Reagan
scored all three touchdowns, held the
ball for Gene Davis' field goal and
extra point,, and set a new Pennsyl-
vania one year scoring record of 103
points.
EVANSTON, Ill., Nov. 23. -(P)-
Northwestern's Wildcats, with blond
Bill De Correvont giving the great-
est performance of his collegiate grid-
iron career, handed Notre Dame a
decisive 20 to 0 licking before 48,000
spectators at Dyche Stadium today.
Northwestern, in closing its season
with a sixth victory in eight games,
held the upper hand throughout the
duel, scoring once in the second period
and twice in the third.
The former Chicago high school
sensation passed for the first Wildcat
touchdown, set up and then scored
the second on a speedy dash off tackle
and punted brilliantly as Northwest-
ern scored its third win over the
Irish in 20 games. His performance
had to be brilliant to overshadow the
play of his teammate Don Clawson,
who scored two of the battle's three
touchdowns.
