(Special to The Daily)
BAKER FIELD, N.Y., Nov. 15.-Michigan came. Michigan conquered.
The Eastern experts saw-and were convinced. Playing sharp, tough, gruel-
ling football, Fritz Crisler's rugged Wolverine crew rolled over Columbia's
desperately outclassed Lions, 28-0, with facility that amazed New York
sports writers who think Hoboken and Passaic mark the last outposts of
GOOD, -MARVELOUS, magnificent, colossal-these were the over-
worked adjectives in the press box this hazy afternoon. General
opinion of the experts-and among them were such as Grantland Rice,
John Kieran, Stan Woodward, Allison Danzig, etc.-centered on one
keynote: Michigan's balance, strength andr sheer power.
Here's what the experts said before setting their opinions down in black
and white for the nation's millions to read:
JOHN KIERAN,. sports editor of the New York Times and Quiz per-
x former of Information Please: "I really thought Columbia had a
good chance to spring an upset. But Michigan had entirely too much
size, speed and power for the badly outclassed Lions. Kuzma and West-
fall are both fine ball players. All-America team? I never pick one."
Lou Little, Columbia's head grid coach: "Michigan was narvelous. One
of the best teams I have seen in a number of years. The Wolverine line
was outstanding and the backs wonderful. Too much credit can't go to
your fine team."
BUD BENJAMIN, former Daily sports editor now with +NEA Sports
Feature Service: "It was -a great team that beat Columbia today.
Easily better than anything in the East. I'd really like to see this Wol-
verine outfit play Notre Dame, whose Angelo Bertelli is absolutely the
finest passer I've ever watched. Westfall and 'Ingalis each have a fine
chance to make All-America."
Grantland Rice: "I don't have to tell you the tremendous power Michi-
gan showed here today. It's written in the score that the Wolverine first
team is great."
STAN WOODWARD, Sports Editor of the New York Herald Tribune:
"Michigan's starting line is the best I've seen this season, including
Notre Dame, Navy and Penn. They were particularly brilliant on offen-
sive blocking. The Wolverine downfield bloeking was sharp. Westfall
and Kuzma, of course, were outstanding in the backfield."
r Y *
Although Michigan's first"stringers played well less than half the game,
its offensive dynamite blasted the Lions with devastating effect. After the
regulars had done their work, they settled back on the sidelines2and watched
the second and third team stave off desperate Columbia bids for a score.
Most of the last half was just that. The Maize and Blue subs couldn't
quite generate enough steam for a concerted touchdown march, so they
turned to good, sound, defensive ball.
MICHIGAN'S offensive brilliance is best demonstrated by the game
statistics which show that the Wolverines gained the amazing total
of 359I net yards by rushing to Columbia's meagre 33.
But behind these' impressive figures is another even more significant
fact. Virtually all of this tremendous yardage was piled up in the first half,
and had Crisler cared to let his gridmen roll up a score, indications were
that they could have trebled the final count.
T HIS IS BORNE OUT by individual statistics. Tom Kuzma drove for
154 yards on the ground in the first half alone in 12 tries, an aver-
age of 12% yardis per attempt. In the last two periods, however, Kid
Kuzma carried only thrice more, by virtue of Crisler's mercy policy,
boosting his total to 169 yards in 15 tries.
The other half of the Wolverines' power combination, Capt. Bop, West-
fall, had that big All-American day forecast for him. $lasting for three
touchdowns, Bullet, too, picked up almost all of his yardage in the initial
half. . His total was 86 yards in 15 smashes through the Westfall-conscious
Columbia forward wall.

Score; Bertelli's Pass
Nets Irish Touchdown
EVANSTON, Ill., Nov. 15-(A)-
Notre Dame's Fighting Irish, with
Southern California as their only re-
maining foe, stayed in the ranks of
the nation's undefeated football
teams today by conquering North-
western's Wildcats, 7 to 6, before a
sellout crowd of 48,000.
The Irish were fought to a 0-0 tie
by the Army, in the mud and rain two
weeks ago, but they are undefeated,
and seek to go on to their first un-
beaten season in 11 years.
Juzwik's Kick
The gallant wearers of the Blue
and Gold managed to beat the out-
of-luck Wildcats through the accur-
acy of Steve Juzwik's right toe and
the lunging of their center, Walter
Ziemba who brole through to block
the kick after touchdown by which
Northwestern had attempted to tie
the score at 7-7. Both scores were
registered in the third period.
Notre Dame set up its scoring man-
euver at the start of the third period
when Don Clawson, ] Torthwestern's
fullback, fumbled and Bernard Crim-
mins, Notre Dame's alert right guard.
recovered on the Wildcats' 36. There
Angelo Bertelli, the Irish brillian'
forward passer, swept into action af-
ter being bottled up on his pass at-(
tempts during the first two periods.
Bertelli Passesi
Bertelli fired an 18 yard toss to I
Wright, who swept on to Northwest-
ern's 18 yard mark before he was
thrown out of bounds. After Juzwik
plunged for three yards and Dippy
Evans lost a yard, the 20-year old
Bertelli sent another perfect 16 yard
pass over the center of the line with
the ball dropping intothe outstretch-
ed arms of Matt Bolger, a reserve end,
who snatched it on the two-yard line
and stumbled across the goal. Juz-
wik booted a perfect goal from place-
ment to give Notre Dame a 7-0 lead.
The Wildcats came right back with
a 60 yard march after Floyd Cham-
bers had returned Juzwik's kickoff to
Northwestern's 40. Otto Graham
plunged for five and an offside pen-
alty gave the Wildcats a first down at
midfield. Chambers reeled off two
and Ed Hirsch galloped for 13 to
Notre Dame's 35. The Irish were pen-,
alized again for offside and Graham,
starting ,to run,. swept to the side of
the field and fired a pass to Hirsch
on the run. Hirsch reached Notre
Dame's 14 before he was brought
mown. Graham on two lunges went
to the four and then drove over right
tackle to score. AsErdlitz' right toe
'crashed against the ball in his at-
tempt to convert, Ziemba hurled his
body against it and it bounced along
the ground, with Notre Dame players
scrambling to recover.

Wisconsin turned in two sensational
fourth period scoring plays and threw
up an airtight defense to defeat Pur-

football game witnessed today by
26,000 spectators.
Acting Capt. Dave Schreiner, right
end, accounted for the first score,
and Pat Harder, brilliant sophomore
fullback, went over for the other.
Schreiner scored two minutes after
the final quarter started. He" blocked
the kick of Purdue's substitute quar-
terback, Bob Hajzyk, in the end zone,
and felt on the ball for a touchdown.
Harder kicked the extra point. Then,
as the game drew to a close, Harder
paused to pick up interference, then
romped through the entire Purdue
eleven for 54 yards and a touch-
down. His try for the extra point
from placement was wide.
