Squad Is In Good Shape
For Game With Illinois
With shouts of protest over the dis-
puted Minnesota field goal still ring-
ing across the campus, Michigan's'
battered, but far from humbled, grid-
ders received a well-earned rest yes-
terday. Coach Fritz Crisler and the
rest of the staff decided that it would
be wiser to dispense with practice in
favor of viewing pictures of Satur-
day's clash.
The squad did not even don their
football togs, instead they went to the
Union where they saw on the screen
each and every mistake that occurred
on the field.
On the whole the outlook ,for the
future looks much brighter than it
might be, for, according to Dr. A. W.
Coxon, the team's physician, every
member of the squad should be ready
for the encounter with Illinois this
coming Saturday. Despite the fact
that six of the "Seven Oak Posts"
played the entire 60 minutes of the
game and the seventh, Bob Kolesar,
played all but three minutes, Elmer
Madar was the only one that was,
noticeably battered. The Wolverine
end had two stitches taken in his eye
between the halves in order to stop
the bleeding.
X-rays showed that Don Robin-
son's injured shoulder was neither
fractured nor separated but that the
tissue was bruised. If, however, it re-
sponds to treatment like it did yester-
day, Robbie will be in there fighting
the Illini with the same courageous
spirit he displayed against the Golden
Gophers.

NEW YORK, Oct. 26.-(P)-Ohio
State for the third straight week tops
the Associated Press poll as the coun-
try's best college football team.
The Buckeyes so dominated the
balloting that 80 of the 123 voters
made them their first place choice
and not one rated them lower than
sixth. In all, the Ohioans collected
1,150 points.
Georgia and Alabama retained the
No. 2 and 3 slots but fourth was won
by Notre Dame, a club that was lan-
guishing in twenty-second place only
two weeks ago. The Irish bounded to
eighth last week after their win over
the Iowa Seahawks and climbed again
this week following their triumph
over previously unbeaten Illinois.
Michigan Skids
They displaced Michigan, which
skidded to thirteenth by losing to
Minnesota, and Georgia Tech moved
into the fifth place which Illinois
relinquished.
Wisconsin, another of the Mid-
western stalwarts, moved from sev-
enth to sixth and Boston College
vaulted from tenth to seventh. Army
and Texas Christian, the leaders of
the second ten a week ago, nabbed
the two spots directly below the
Massachusetts Eagles with Minne-
sota, only No. 13 a week, completing
the top grouping.

half takes time out to make a substitution after it has
already exhausted its legal three time-outs, that team
shall be penalized five yards for delaying the game.
Minnesota had exhausted its legal time-out periods
prior to the time Garnaas replaced Sandberg.
That being the situation, Minnesota should have
been penalized five yards, and the clock should have
started running when the official began to pace off
the five yard. penalty. But Masker did not exact the
penalty on the Gophers for an extra time-out. He did
not pace off the five yards, during which time the half
would have ended. As a result, Garnaas had time to
drop-kick the ball through the posts for the deciding
three points.
As it was, Garnaas called a quick snap-back
from center and booted a wobbly field goal which
barely cleared the cross-bar. Even if there was
time remaining after the official had given the
Gopbers a five yard penalty, and there wouldn't
have been; Garnaas' drop-kick would not have
been good. The ball would have fallen short. His
kick went over just as the gun ending the half
soulnded.
Credit cAnnot be taken away from Garnaas, who
had presence of mind to realize that a drop-kick
would be the only way for the Gophers to tally. There
wasn't enough time for a placement. field goal, and

U9--
Norsemen a 15 yard penalty for piling on, after it
had taken place on several occasions.
On one occasion Frickey threw a pass to
Wildung, an illegal receiver. It was ruled as an
incomplete pass. The rule book states that in
a case like this the offensive team should be pen-
alized 15 yards for intentional grounding of the
ball. Masker inflicted no penalty, and the Gophers
went on from there to score their second touch-
down. They may have scored it even if a penalty
had been exacted, but they would have had to
battle through 15 more yards of Michigan de-
fended territory.
CRISLER DOES NOT INTEND to lodge any protest
with Maj. John Griffith, Commissioner of Big
Ten athletics. He does not plan to make any move to
have the victory awarded to Michigan on the grounds
that Masker did not comply with the rules, particu-
larly when he allowed the Gophers to kick their game-
deciding field goal:
The Michigan coach and athletic director has
stated that any changes in the outcome of Saturday's
contest must come from Minnesota and that the
Michigan staff has no alibis or comments. Major
Griffith, when contacted last night, said that he
had not received reports from the four officials, both
coaches and unofficial Conference observers.

Michigan State
Drills For Owls
Bachman To Again Build
Attack Around Kieppe
EAST LANSING, Oct. 26.- (AP)-
Michigan State, fresh from its upset
victory over Great Lakes, swung into
drills today for Saturday's game with
the Temple Owls at Philadelphia.
The Spartan coaches said they
might have to reassign some of their
backs, to plug the hole left when half-
back Wally Pawlowski suffered a
knee injury, seriousness of which has
not yet been determined. Fullback
Edo Mencotti was shifted to right
half on an experimental basis. There
still is some hope Pawlowski will be
able to play.
The man-in-motion attack used so
successfully against Great Lakes will
be stressed against the Owls, too,
Coach Charley Bachman said. He
declared it works well because of the
ability of halfback Dick Kieppe to fire
forward passes on the run, and it was
no end upsetting to the Great Lakes
Sailors.
State, which swamped Temple 46-0
here last year, will be favored to win,
but the coaches warned their charges
that they, too, were the underdogs
last week-end.

C-AMPAIGN, Ill., Oct. 26.--P-Dick Good, Illinois passing star, will be lost for they Michigan game
Saturday and possibly for the remainder of the season. Good twisted his left knee in a collision with team-
mate Steve Sucie while returning a punt in the fourth quarter against Notre Dame last Saturday.

he did the only thing possible. His drop-kick, was
entirely unrehearsed. It was the first one he had ever
attempted, and he must be lauded for coming through
under the most intense pressure. Some of the Wol-
verines protested that it was not a drop-kick but a
punt that won the game, but motion pictures showed
that it was a legal drop-kick. Also, the Minnesota
team did line up with a seven man line, which quiets
other protests.
But there can be no excuse for Masker's fail-
ure to penalize the Gophers. He knew that the
clock had stopped-he even waved to the official
in charge of it to start it going again. And he
should have known that Minnesota had already
used up its allowed quota of three time out peri-
ods. It was a bungling job of officiating; and it
cost Michigan a ball game.
THAT WASN'T the only instance of Masker's in-
ability to handle the fray. Throughout, the con-
test was out of his hands. It was the poorest job of
officiating that this writer has ever seen.
Masker could not stop the rough stuff which
took place, and in the majority of the cases, Minne-
sota was guilty of the rule infractions. Crisler and
Ceithaml repeatedly pointed out Gopher illegal tac-
tics, and finally, in the second half, Masker gave he

Crisler's attitude must be commended from its
sportsmanlike viewpoint. But the fact remains that
Minnesota won only because the game was not played
according to the rules. And this writer is of the
definite opinion that Crisler should protest the
decision.
JJE HAS EVERY LEGAL RIGHT to enter a pro-
test. Masker did not discharge his duties as
he should have. Crisler cannot be criticized for
asking that the result be changed because of the
circumstances which surrounded the Gopher field
goal. If Masker had followed the rules, there
never would have been time for that field goal.
By not protesting, Minnesota remains the victor.
It seems fioubtful that the Gophers themselves will
ask that the decision be reversed. And it doesn't seem
likely that Masker will tell Major Griffith that he
made a mistake and that the tilt actually was won by
Michigan. If Michigan is to go down in the record
books as the winner of a game that it rightfully won,
Crisler is the man to start the ball rolling toward such
proceedings.
The Wolverines played a hard, bitterly fought con-
test. They were outscored because of a referee's
boner, not because of their own shortcomings. Some-
thing should be done about that.
