Gopher forward wall to nail the ball carrier, while his blocking was
batteringly effective in clearing the way for the Maize and Blue runners.

EAST LANSING, Oct. 25,-(/P)-
Michigan State College turned on
the power in the second half to crush
a hard-trying Wayne University
team, 39 to 6 today, but there was a
bizarre finish that overshadowed the
Touchdown After Final Gun
A crowd of. 15,200 left Macklin
Field thinking Wayne had been hand-
ed its fourth consecutive whitewash,
but referee Rudel Miller ruled that a
pass deflected off the foot of a Michi-
gan r'eceiver was intercepted by a
Wayne player, who ran 72 yards for
a touchdown after the gun sounded.
On the last play of the game, half-
back Wyman Davis threw a pass to
halfback Hugh Davis on Wayne's 28.
The ball struck the latter's leg and
halfback Nick Cherup of Wayne
grabbed the ball in mid-air and
streaked down the field.
With some 8,500 Michigan Boy
Scouts, guests of the College swarm-
ing the field, no conversion attempt
was made by Wayne.
The Tartars staged surprising re-
sistance most of the game, trailing
only 7 to 0 at the intermission.
Pawlowski, Sherman Score
However, sparked by 158 pound

back with a five-touchdown assault;
in the final two periods.
Pawlowski opened the second half
Spartan explosion with touchdown
runs of 14 and 28 yards midway in the
third period. The two pay-off jaunts
came less than three minutes apart.
Sherman, who tallied State's first
touchdown in the second quarter with
a one-yard buck, took up where Paw-
lowski left off in the same period
and broke. loose for a thrilling 75-
yard touchdown run on a smash over
left tackle.
Two more\ Spartan touchdowns

came in the closing period, one on
an 81-yard pass interception by
guard George Danciu and the other
on % 14-yard pass from halfback
Wyman Davis to end Lew Smiley.
Two of State's three conversions
were place-kicked by Sherman, while
Wy Davis booted the third.
Although State rolled up 346 yards
from scrimmage to 69 for Wayne,
the Tartars were shaded in first
downs only 14 to 11.
Coach CharleybBachman used 31
State players,- but whenever 'the
Spartan first string club was on the
bench the scrappy Tartars caused
trouble. This was particularly true
in the second period when Wayne
marched 51 yards to State's 29 and
then pierced to the Spartan 13 after
recovering a State fumble.
State's Fifth Win Over Wayne
It was the fifth meeting of the two
schools and marked State's fifth
straight win and its widest margin of
victory. In 1938, the Spartans tri-
umphed, 34 to 6.
State had to work hard for its first
touchdown. After advancing as far
as Wayne's four in the opening peri-
od, fumbles by Sherman and Dick
Kieppe set the Spartans back on the
Tartar ten and the scoring threat
faded when Kielpe's pss was
grounded in the end zone.
After an exchange of punts, the
Spartans launched another drive
from Wayne's 44 and with Sherman
and Kieppe battering away on eight
plays, finally reached the one-yard
line and Sherman powered his way
across to score.
State's quick scoring thrusts de-
moralized the Tartars in the second
half, but the Spartans, whose play
was marred considerably by fumbles
and mix ups on signals, showed need
for considerable work before tackling
Missouri here next Saturday.



Notre Dame Unleashes Passing
Attack To Wallop Illinois, 49-14


SOUTH BEND, *Oct. 25. -(P)-
Notre Dame's football machine, sput-
tering before Illinois' inspired play
for three periods, came to life todayI
with a terrific explosion of fourth
period power which produced four
touchdowns and a 49 to 14 victory
before 45,000 roaring spectators.
Irish Turn On Power
In gaining their fifth straight win
of the season the Irish were a lethar-
gic looking eleven as the third period
ended, holding a slim seven point
lead over the Bob Zuppke eleven.
Then, with 'a crushing ground and
aerial attack, they rode rough shod
over their opponents to turn the
hard fought battle into a rout.
Illinois, with its line out-march-
ing the Notre Dame forwards con-
sistently, surprised everyone by
opening the scoring. Lavere Astroth
passed 16 yards to Don Griffin,
brightest light of the day for the
Illini, for a touchdown midway in
the first period. Notre Dame came
back to knot the count on Steve
Juzwik's 13 yard run late in the
The Irish scored twice in the second
period, Angelo Bertelli passing 30
yards to Juzwik for one score and

Owen Evans smashing one yard for
another after one of the many Irish
pass interceptions had set the stage.
Illinois Comes Back
But Illinois, finally outclassed but
never outgamed, fought back in the
third period, holding the Irish score-
less and gaining a second touchdown.
Jimmy Smith counted on a one yard
smash after a 16 yard pass had been
ruled complete because of Irish in-
Then Notre Dame, shooting'her
first stringers into action, put on its
steam-roller act. Bertelli shot a 38
yard touchdown pass to Evans and
then whirled a nine yard aerial to
Bill Farley for another score. Wally
Ziemba then intercepted a pass and
ran 47 yards to the Illini three be-
fore Evans crashed over for a touch-
down. With two seconds of play -re-
maining, Tom Creevy hurled a 40
yard aerial to Tom Miller for a final
Irish score.
