Wilson (above), 40, former Reds

O U T O FH AR M O 'SA Not since Red Grange has praise so showered on a gridder as on Michigan's Tom
Y"1A Harmon, star back seen with ball in the Northwestern-Michigan game won by
Wolverines, 20-13. An elusive breakaway artist, runner and kicker, Harmon scored 33 touchdowns in three years, registered 237 points
to top Grange's Western conference record. Minnesota was rated nation's No. 1 team, and Nebraska is to meet Stanford in Rose Bowl.

their first title since 1919. In this slap-happy dressing room Reds' Manager Bill "Deacon" McKechnie
is being tossed about by Paul Derringer (left), winning pitcher, and Hank Gowdy. Derringer shaded
Bo-Bo Newsom, Tigers' pitcher whose personal tragedy was the death of his father during the series.
Extra jubilant were the Reds to erase the marks of their last year's series defeat by N. Y. Yankees.
