Crimson, 35-7

Nation's Grid Highlights ...

Stanford Scores Upset
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 7-
(j)-- Stanford's amazing Indians, low
one week and high the next, racked
up their second upset of the season
today by trouncing University of
Washington Huskies, 20 to 7.
A crowd of 20,000 fans saw the in-
spired Indians, which earlier upset
Southern California, come from be-
hind to outplay the favored Huskies
for the last three periods and score
touchdowns in each one.
The loss smeared Washington's
Coast Conference hopes all over Kezar
Stadium. Like Stanford, its record
now lists tvo league defeats.
Engineers Still Unbeaten
ATLANTA, Ga., Nov. 7.- (P)- By
land and by air, and almost every
other conceivable means of ofensive
striking power, Georgia Tech's rough-
riding engineers breezed on toward an
undefeated football campaign today
by overwhelming Kentucky's Wild-
cats, 47-7.'
The Engineers' great line, the sen-

sational freshman, Clint Castleberry,
and sophomore Eddie Prokop, all
combined with a scintillating per-
formance by Davey Eldredge to bury
the Kentuckians under a devastating

the game started, as Bobby Sheldon

Oregon Upsets UCLA
EUGENE, Ore., Nov. 7. -- (R) -
UCLA's Rose Bowl stock dropped sev-
eral points today as the Bruins lost
their first Pacific Coast Conference
start of the year, 7-14, to Oregon be-
fore a homecoming crowd of 8,000
The defeat spilled the Bruins from
the conference lead, enabling Wash-
ington State to go ahead of UCLA by
a half-game. Washington State
played out of the conference today,
defeating Michigan State, 25-13, but
previously had won four games to
UCLA's three.

Irish Defeat
Tough Army
New 'T' Formation
of Leahy's Is Huge
Success in Victory
NEW YORK, Nov. 7.- (A)- Notre
Dame's talented football forces' gave
a crowd of 76,000 an impressive exhi-
bition of sheer power at Yankee Sta-
dium today in defeating a fighting but
outclassed Army eleven 13 to 0, in the
29th renewal of their colorful gridiron
In staking a further claim to high
national ranking, the polished ma-
chine from South Bend proved that
it could eat up vast distances without
recourse to the passing arm of its
great quarterback, Angelo Bertelli,
and in holding the Cadets to three
first downs the Irish defense looked
nearly impregnable.
For a half, the Soldiers managed
by furious tackling in their own end
of the field to hold the surging green
shirts off their goal line, but in the
third period the visitors drove 34
yards to score, and again in the wah-
ing minutes of the contest they
plunged and bulled and finally passed
their way a total of 80 yards for a
second touchdown and a decisive vic-
Irish Dominate
There was no comparison in the
statistics. The Notre Dame backs run-
ning from their new "T" formation,
piled up 250 yards from scrimmage
against Army's 68, and chalked up 14
first downs to the Cadets' three. Prac-
tically the entire game was played in
Army territory, though the Cadets by
one lightning stroke penetrated to the
Notre Dame four-yard line late in the
third quarter to send their supporters
into momentary ecstasy.
Army obviously was determined to
shackle the enemy sharpshooter, Ber-
telli, and succeeded to a remarkable
degree. Out of 17 aerials attempted
Notre Dame completed only four for
a total gain of 21 yards. But Bertelli's
final peg was for a touchdown, and
besides, Army's intense occupation
with the threat from the air made
them a set-up for the visitors' tricky
running game.
Bucks Back in Form,
Swamp Pitt, 59-19
COLUMBUS, O.. Nov. 7.-(P)-Ohio
State and Pittsburgh staged a touch-
down marathon today as the high-
powered Bucks crushed the out-
manned Panthers 59 to 19.
Ohio, rebounding from last week's
setback at the hands of Wisconsin,
demonstrated before 34,893 Dad's Day
fans a scoring machine that ran up
nine touchdowns with the second and
third stringers playing most of the
It would have been a shutout had
it not been for Pitt's widman Bill
Dutton, an all-around star from Wes-
ton, W. Va. He scored two of the Pan-
ther touchdowns and was on the hurl-
ing-end of a pass for the third.

James (Surefoot) Brieske, came off
the bench to convert every one of the
extra points after the five Maize and
Blue touchdowns. This runs Brieske's
amazing string to 12 straight boots
without a miss and raises his season's
record to 19,conversions out of 21 at-
Harvard's Only Score'
Harvard's only touchdown of the
game was scored in the third period
with but one minute left to play when
fullback Wayne Johnson went over
from the yard line.
. White turned in -his finest perfor-
mance of the season as he averaged
better than eight yards a try and

would have still been too much as
far as Coach Dick Harlow was con-
With the extra point already writ-
ten down in most of the scorebooks,
Brieske came in and converted just
to make it official.
Kuzma and White combined their
efforts in crushing the Harvard line
early in the second period to bring
the ball 58 yards for Michigan's sec-
ond score of the game. Starting on
their own 42-yard line, -Michigan,
through the aid of Mr. White, brought
the ball to the Harvard 35. After let-
ting the Harvard line rest by failing
to roll up more than 3 yards a try,
White cut inside his own tackle to
bring the ball into the shadow of the
Crimson goal posts on the 13 yard
Kuzma took over from here, and on
a beautiful bit of open field running
made the score 13-0. Yes, Brieske con-
Apparently Harvard didn't think
Michigan was scoring fast enough be-
cause five minutes later Leo Flynn,
generous Crimson halfback, threw a
perfect pass to Elmer Madar, Wolve-
rine end, who technically intercepted
it and ran 53 yards for Michigan's
third touchdown. Counting Brieske's
conversion the score became 21-0.
With the clock ticking out the last
minutes of play it became apidarent
that the Wolverines' scoring was over
for at least the half, but White re-
fused to stay down and promptly in-
tercepted John Comeford's long pass
on the MVichigan 17 and ran back to
the Harvard 48.
Chappuis Sparks Drive
Then the old Michigan aerial bon-
bardment started as Bob Chappuis
came into the game. After warming
up his arm on several incomplete pas-
ses Chappuis tossed a beauty to Capt.
George Ceithaml on the Harvard 32.
Immediately following this, the hand-
some halfback let a "Big Bertha" go
that practically landed on White's
neck, who barely needed to walk
across the goal line and make the
score 27-0. Brieske went through his
In the second half with the entire
Wolverine first team on the bench
Harvard perked up quiterasbit and
proceeded to make the rest of the
game a nip and tuck ball game.
Get Second Score
However, it wasn't until Don Rich-
ards, Crimson halfback, intercepted
Frank Wardley's pass on the Michi-
gan 32 that the Crimson aggregation
really came to life. They picked up
seven yards on two line plays and
then Richards passed to his fullback,
Wayne Johnson, who caught the ball
on the Michigan 10 and stumbled to
the 1 yard line.
On the very next nlay, Johnson
went over. With Johnson holding,
Crimson end Bill Barnes converted.
Harvard's big moment was over
and from then on.they quieted down
as Crisler continued to study his re-
serves in action.
Vernier Intercepts Pass
Robert , Vernier, who took Ceit-
haml's place at quarterback, showed
the crowd that the reserves were not
playing second fiddle to the Harvard
varsity as he intercepted Wally
Flynn's pass on the Wolverine 37.
Then the reserves started to march
paced by Cliff Wise and Bob Sten-
berg On seven plays the reserves had
the ball on the one yard line that in-
cluded a masterful run by Wise. Sten-
berg took the ball over with a power-
house lunge over guard.
Stenberg played plenty of "heads
up ball" and will probably receive
plenty of attention from Crisler be-
cause of it.

Georgia Scores 75 Points

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 7.-(P)
-Georgia's unbeaten, untied football
team pulled out all the stops today,
tuning up a prelude to post-season
bowl music by overwhelming a be-
wildered Florida eleven, 75-0, before
22,000 fans.
It was Georgia's 14th consecutive
victory since mid-season of,1941, and
the eighth straight win of 1942.
All-American Frankie Sinkwich,
Georgia's captain, scored two touch-
downs and pitched to his one-time
schoolboy pal, George Poschner, for
two others in a spectacular 30-minute

. . . speedy fullback who scored
Michigan's final touchdown against
Harvard yesterday.
gained more total yardage than any
three Michigan backs combined.
The statistics do indicate Michi-
gan's measure of superiority. The
Wolverines made only 14 first downs
as compared to the Crimson's eleven.
The visitors from Cambridge rolled up
156 yards by rushing while the Wol-
verines made 280 by the same method.
Most encouraging point of the af-
ternoon from the Michigan viewpoint
was the apparent strengthening of
the Wolverine pass defense. Out of
15 Harvard passes attempted only five
were completed and four were inter-
cepted by the alert Michigan defense.
In all, the Wolverines gained 97 yards
by returning intercepted passes.
Touchdown Drive
Michigan scored its first touchdown
of the afternoon on a brisk 92-yard
march that started on its own eight
yard line. After the Michigan backs
had brought the ball past the mid-
field stripe Bob Wiese, husky Wolve-
rine fullback, p1lowed ten yards
through the center of the Crimson
wall and made it a first down on the
Harvard 40.
Then, White showed the fans that
this was going to be his day when he
made a.total of 26 yards on two end
runs that brought the ball to the Har-
vard 14 yard line. Two plays later the
River Rouge Hammer knifed through
tackle to take the pigskin over and
make the score read 6-0 in favor of
Michigan. It was White all the way
and if Harvard didn't see Paul any
more for the rest of the afternoon it
