mistakes that spelled failure to Mich-

Wolverines Draw Penalty
Previous to this Michigan staged
one threatening drive in the first
quarter which terminated after a
painful 15-yard penalty for illegal
use of the hands. The march got
under way after Kuzma, on a quick-
starting right end run, moved 16
yards from his own 30 to the 46.'Then
he circled left end to Minnesota's
47, followed by two perfect bullet
passes to end Harlin Fraumann down

back to their 33.
On an end run Westfall fought his
way around the 20, but an over-an-
xious Wolverine missed his block and
held his Gopher defensive assign-,

Higgins Sparkles
The only thing resembling another
Minnesota threat was a drive sparked
by pint-sized Bu Higgins' running
and passing that ended on the Mich-

Bill Garnaas that went to the right
of the goal posts.

The break Michigan-had been pray-

left when Higgihs fumbled on his
own 33 and Michigan recovered. On
the first play Kuzma faded back and
looped a flat pass to Ceithaml on the
right who went on to the 21.

Then came: (1) A pass from Kuz-

his hands on in the northwest corner
of the field on the two-yard line. But
he couldn't hold it.,
