(Continued from Page 1)1
the 11 men who started the game for
the Maize and Blue, seven of them
played the entire sixty minutes with-
out respite.
Capt. George Ceithaml, a great
quarterback even in defeat, did it
again. And six of the "Seven Oak
Posts" stood up to the battering Go-
pher plunges for the full time. Center
Merv Pregulman, again an outstand-
ing lineman, Guard Julie Franks,
Tackles Al Wistert and Bill Pritula,
and the Ends, Phil Sharpe and Elmer
Madar were the six Posts that the
Gophers couldn't gnaw down. Only
Bob Kolesar of that great line didn't
remain when the final whistle blew,
and he left only a short minute be-
fore after playing one of the most
spectacular games of his career.
Franks Still Hot
And the Wolverines stood compari-
son well to the All-American bidding
Gopher performers. Ceitham was an
even match with Garnaas in field-
generalship and blocking. Wistert
more than held his own with giant
Gopher Tackle Dick Wildung, and
Tom Kuzma was as battering a half-
back as Minnesota's crushing Bill
Daley. And Julie Franks, Michigan's
great guard, showed skeptical Minne-
apolis observers just why he is being
heavily considered for All-American
honors with his fierce tackling and
blocking.
Kuzma who collected both Michi-
gan touchdowns was the leading scor-
er of the day, while Minnesota's two
halfbacks, Daley and Herm Frick'ey,
crossed the double line once each.
Lund Plays Well
Michigan opened the scoring half
way in the first quarter. Frickey punt-
ed out on the Michigan 34, arfd the
Wolverine attack, paced by Kuzma
and Fullback. Don Lund-a great per-
former in the place of the injured
Bob Wiese-marched the remaining
66 yards in a manner which made
every witness think the contest would
be a rout.
On the first Michigan play, Lund
cracked center for nine yards. Kuzma
next streaked off left tackle for a
first down on the Wolverine 48. Lund
smashed right guard for 13 yards and
a first down on the Gopher 39. Then
after three plays failed, Kuzma, from
punt formation, hit center for an-
other first and ten on the Minnesota
25. Paul White then took a lateral
from Kuzma and went all the way to
the Gopher three-yard line before
being hauled down. In two more at-
tempts Kuzma tallied, the scoring
play comning off left tackle from one
yard out. Jim Beske converted for
the Wolverines and Michigan led,
7-0.
Daley Sores
The next time Michigan got the
ball they marched to the Gopher 25
where Minnesota gave its first sign
of the fight that was to come and
held the hitherto rampaging Wol-
verines.
After a few punt exchanges, Minne-
sota gained possession on Michigan's
44 after a poor punt by Kuzma. On
the next play, the Gophers evened the
battle. Fullback Vic Kulbitski handed
the pigskin to Garnaas who lateraled
to D~aley. The latter ripped around
left end for 44 yards and the first
Minnesota touchdown, bulling
through three\ Wolverine defenders
and carrying one six yards over the
goal. Garnaas converted and the score
was tied with only five minutes left
to go of the half.
With about two minutes remaining
until halftime, Michigan relinquished
the .ball on downs on the Minnesota
46. Frickey passed to Daley who went

to the Michigan 26 before being
stopped. Frickey tossed successfully
again, this time to Sandberg on the
Michigan 11. Garnaas replaced Sand-
berg, and the deciding points were
on their way. Frickey battered his
way to the three, and Franks threw
Daley back to the six.
Field Goal Disputed
At this point the scoreboard clock
stopped with 4 seconds left, a matter
which was disputed loudly by the
Wolverines. The Gophers hurriedly
lined up in front of the goal posts
and Garnaas calmly drop-kicked the
vital three points squarely between
them as the half ended. Michigan
protested the play on the grounds
that the clock had stopped when it
shouldn't have and that the half was
finished before the ball was snapped,
but the officials ruled otherwise and
the Minnesotans were ahead, 10 to 7.
The second Minnesota touchdown
drive started midway in the third
period. Guard John Billman inter-
cepted a Kuzma pass on the Michigan
43 to start the Gophers going towards
pay dirt. Frickey,. after Kulbitski and
Daley had picked up eight yards
through the Wolverine line, smashed
off right guard for a first down on
the Michigan 26. He then battered his
way over right tackle to the 15, and
teamed with Daley to go to the five
on the next three plays. Frickey then
received a lateral from Garnaas and
scampered around left end without a
hand being laid on him for the score.
Garnaas missed the conversion, but'
Minnesota was away winging, 16-7.
Robinson Runs Wild
Michigan threatened twice more
before it finally chalked up its last
touchdown, but each time the sturdy
Gophers balked the Wolverines when
a tally appeared in the making.
With just a little more than a min-
ute left, the Wolverines made their
final effort. Kuzma took Joe Silo-
vich's punt on his own 35 and re-
versed to Don Robinson who tore
down the south sideline for 52 yards
to the Minnesota 13. White picked
up two around left end, and then
Kuzma, carrying three men with him,
went wide around the right flank for
the touchdown.' Brieske converted to
make the count read, 16-14, but the
Wolverines were too late. The game
ended three plays later, and Minne-
sota had retained its stranglehold on
Michigan for the ninth straight year.
Next Year - Maybe

(Continued from Page 1)
Michigan eight-yard line, Minnesota
was going to try a placekick, but
Herm Frickey took another look at
the clock and whispered to Garnaas,
"Kick the damn thing, we haven't
time for anything else." Garnaas an-
swered, "I can't." "I never kicked one
in my life during a game."
But Garnaas did kick it and it
proved to be the margin of victory for
the Gophers.
Pug Lund, the former All-American
Gopher halfback, had this to say
about the game, "It sure gives you a
wonderful feeling to beat Michigan,
but when they turn the tables one of
these days I sure hate to think of the
consequences."
There Are Three Jugs
There was a Little Brown Jug on
the Gopher bench. But it wasn't the
real one. The original one that Coach
Fielding Yost used to take from Min-
nesota was broken at Michigan when
it was knocked off the fireplace of a
fraternity.
There are now three "phonies" in
existence. One Hank Hatch, Michigan
equipment manager, owns; one Oscar
Munson, Gopher equipment manager,
has; and finally one that is passed
between the teams. The original one
cost but thirty cents.
Garnaas Can Kick
Bill Garna as'kicking was nothing
short of sensational all afternoon. His
best boot was made when he stood
nine yards behind his own goal line
and kicked to Don Robinson on Mich-
igan's 44-yard line for a 65-yard ride.
Two years ago Bob Wiese sat on the
Minnesota bench as a guest of Bernie
Bierman. After the game Wiese said,
"Win or lose, I would have rather
sat with Michigan today, then play
the whole game with Minnesota."
The Gopher cheerleaders are a
rather energetic clan. With the aid
of a springboard they tossed one of
their group over the crossbar between
the goal posts in honor of Garnaas'
field goal
'Robbie' Called Best
Don't let Gopher fans tell you they
know Minnesota was going to win.
Everyone in Minneapolis wanted at
least three points if they bet on the
home team. Arch Ward, Chicago Tri-
bune, picked Minnesota, 10 to 7, over
Michigan.
Don Robinson's 27-yard pass to Phil
Sharpe was probably the best heaved

all day. He practically hit Sharpe in
the head. In the press box members
thought "Robbie" was the best Wol-
verine back of the day.
Madar Is Cut
Some of the fans who witnessed the
tilt will forever insist that Garnaas'
field goal should never have been al-
lowed to take place. They base their
reasoning on three facts: 1. nine sec-
onds were left to play as the referees
called their own time out; 2. the field
goal was made with one second re-
maining in the half; 3. the Gophers
used that time to get to their feet and
into a huddle.
Elmer Madar, rugged Wolverine
end, received a severe cut over his
left eye that required two stitches to
close. The injury occurred in the sev-
enth play of the game, but Madar re-
fused to quit.

To Hawkeyes
Extra Point Decides Tilt
As Iowa Wins, 14-13
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Oct. 24.-
UP)- Tom Farmer and Billy Hillen-
brand engaged in a pitching, running
and kicking/duel here today and Far-
mer won-by the narrow margin of a1
point after touchdown-to give the
Iowa Hawkeyes a 14-13 decision over
Indiana in a Western Conference tilt.
The victory was Iowa's first in the
Conference campaign. It was the sec-
ond straight Conference licking for
the Hoosiers, who previously had lost
to Ohio State.
Farmer, a 185-pound senior, helped
set up the first Hawkeye score, hand-
ing the ball to Charles Uknes for the
touchdown jaunt in the second quar-
ter. In the third period he pitched a
perfect strike to Jim Keans for the
second Iowa touchdown and, what's
more, added the extra point that
proved to be the margin of victory.
Steuber Still High
COLUMBIA, Mo., Oct. 24.- (IP)-
Bob Steuber, Missouri halfback and.
the nation's leading scorer, added 20
points to his season total today as
Missouri swamped Iowa State, 45 to
6, in a Big Six Conference game.

sive victory and Georgetown's first
