N OLD, OLD ADAGE tells us that "All good things come to those who
wait." But up in Madison, Wis., they've decided that they've waited
long enough. So now, after 30 years of wishing and mediocrity, Wiscon-
sin has come up with a football team which looks good enough to finish the
current grid season as the winner of the Western Conference pigskin
Not since 1912 have the Badgers accomplished what every Confer-
enee team sets out to do-win the:title. This year, though; they seem
to be on their, merry way.. Last Week they dunped-'a favored Ohio
State team from the ranks of the unbeaten and from the number one
spot in the nation by the tune of 17-7. This :tkiumph shot the Badger
boys into second place in the nation's standings and gave them undis-
puted possession of first place in the Conference.
Up there, or out there, in Wisconsin they have two powerful backs and
a phenomenal end to lead them on to one victory after another. Pat
Harder, the booming 'fullback, and sensational Elroy Hirsch, a great soph-
omore halfback, are the two backs. Dave Schreiner, an All-American last
year, is the end. These three gentlemen are guaranteed to get in the hair
of any football team, be it good or not. They're fast, they're powerful and
they're smart. And they evidently love to play football. The result-
Coach Harry Stuhldreher's ball club is running wild.
The Badgers have only *:tie with Notre Dame to mar their cam-
paign record, and at that, they outpbayed the Irish. The score was 7-7,
and if you remember, the population of South Bend thought itself
mighty luiky to get away .with that after the tilt was over. And don't
forget, the majority of the time:this sesason Wisdonsin.has been with-
out the service of Harder. Only In the .past few Weeks has he been
available for full time duty because of a severe leg injury suffered in
pre-season practice. ...
Still, all is not clear sailing for the Badgers. They have three more
Conference games remaining on ther scheciule--one with Iowa this week
and one apiece later on with Minnesota and Northwestern. And as we have
remarked at least ten times in this space, anything can happen in football
and usually does:

Friday the 13th may be an un-
lucky day for some, but on that day
the age old freshman dream of out-
side competition will become a reality
when Wally Weber's Frosh football
team tangles with the Michigan State
yearlings at Ferry Field.
The last time that a Michigan
freshman football team met outside
competition was way back in 1917.
From that time until just recently'
Big Ten schools have not been able to
engage in freshman games with one
another. The rules committee of the
conference has lifted the ban in view
of the present uncertain status of the
This game with Michigan State will
be one of two contests that the fresh-
man team will have. The other one
also makes a specialty of kicking extra
points. Defensively Walterhouse is
equally efficient, excelling especially
on pass defense.
Some of the men likely to see action
in the line include ends Art Renner
and Lehman Beardsley; tackles Jack
Emerick and Bill Pratt; center Frank
Kern from Detroit, who incidentally
looks very good, and guards George
Kraeger, Hank Mantho and Kurt
In the backfield others who will
.probably see action include Irv Derda
and Hugh Mack at the quarterback
spot; Bill Culligan and Bob Nuss-
baumer at the halves, and Kenny
Sands along with Ralph Chubb play-
The fellows listed above will prob-
ably see action, but the game is ten
days away and anything can happen.
Gordon Is Most
Valuable in A. L.
NEW YORK, Nov. 3.- (A')- Joe
Gordon, the flashy second baseman
of the New York Yankees, was named
the most valuable player in the Amer-
ican League today as Ted Williams,
the slugging star of the Boston Red
Sox, was edged out of the honor for
the second straight year.
A committee of 24 members of the
Baseball Writers Association, whose
balloting was done before the world
series but not announced until now,
showed an- irreconcilable difference of
opinion over the merits of the season's
outstanding performers in the junior
circuit. The result was Gordon fin-
ished ahead of Williams 270 points to
249 in a close ballot.
Every member of the committee
ranked both Gordon and Williams
somewhere among their top ten choi-
ces, but Gordon rated 12 first place
votes to nine for Williams.
From all appearances, Coach Fritz
Crisler will have to do without the
services of fullback Don Boor in Sat-
urday's game against the Crimson
team from Cambridge. Dr. Coxon,
team physician says that Don's ankle
is the worst injury on the squad, and
is still swollen to such a degree that
he will undoubtedly not be fit for
On the other hand following the
Tuesday practice Dr. Coxon's reports
on Tom Kuzma and Don Robinson's
injuries was very encouraging. Kuzma
has a very slight sprain and should be
able to play Saturday if he is needed.
Likewise Don Robinson who has been
bothered with a strained shoulder,
should be in good enough condition
to permit him to enter the contest.
It is very probable, however, that
these two men, although able to play,
will not do so, partly because Satur-
day's tilt is not expected to be a game
which will require all of the Michigan
power, and partly because, given an-
other week's comparative rest, they
will be in top condition for the Irish
Crisler devoted yesterday's prac-
tice session to familiarizing his squad
with Harvard's offense and smoothing
over its own attack.

Throughout the country freshman
gridders are blazing names for them-
selves in the 1942 football season. On
the Harvard team roster are four
froshethat have added plenty of fire
to the Crimson attack.
During the past summer many col-
leges in the United States found that
the draft had taken heavy tolls upon
their football teams. These schools
were faced with the problem of sup-
plying enough manpower to place a
winning eleven on the 'field each
Made Freshmen Eligible

was among this group, and from all
indications they should be mighty
happy that they. made' the move.
.Ranked as outstanding on the.Har-
vard squad are freshmen Jack Come-
ford, triple threat' halfback; Leo
Flynn, a back, and ends Wally Flynn
and George Boston.
Among the stars of the class of
'46, Comneford stands high. Most of
the Crimson offensive attack has been
built around him this season. He has
proved that he can run as. he broke
through the opposition for several
large gains. He' is especially hot on
open field running.
Although only a frosh, the new
Harvard star has shown he can de
liver under fire. Last Saturday with
30 seconds to play in the Princeton
battle, he dropped back to his own
25-yard line and heaved a 50 yard
looping pass directly into the arms
of Gordon Lyle, who raced the rest
of the distance to the goal. That play
beat the Tigers, 19 to 14.
Flynn Adds Punch
Leo Flynn, another of Coach Dick
Harlow's new threats, has added
punch to the Harvard drive by his
varied display of running. He has
both speed and power which makes
him a definite asset.
At the flank positions, George Bos-
ton and Wally Flynn have won sec-
ond team spots. Flynn, who is no re-

have advanced to recognition as the
nation's outstanding college football

much their rivals for the honor can
do about it in the near future.
Georgia's feat in toppling Ala-

place votes out of a total of 127 bal-

in the ranking by upsetting Ohio
State, which had been rated the No.
1 eleven in the country for the first
three weeks of the poll. There also
was a reshuffling of the other grid-
iron greats from top to bottom.
Bulldogs Will Meet Tech
But out of the overhauling came
an appearance of security for Geor-
gia because the Bulldogs' schedule in
the next three weeks calls for com-
paratively mild opposition from Flor-
ida, Chattanooga and Auburn before
their traditional season's finale with
Georgia Tech, also unbeaten and
ranked third in this week's poll.
