Winning Pass Comes
With 18 Seconds Left
EVANSTON, Ill., Nov. 14.-(R')-
Trailing 19 to 14 in the last 18 sec-
onds of the game, Wisconsin kept
its Big Ten championship hopes
alive with a dramatic thrust for a
touchdown which defeated North-
western 20 to 19 today before 35,000
fuming spectators.
Northwestern's Wildcats, beaten
six times in a row, bounded from
the depths of football despair to play
their best game of the season with
their brilliant forward passer, Otto
Graham, tossing two thrilling touch-
down aerials.
Wisconsin, beaten only by Iowa in
one of its strongest title bids in 30
years, was experiencing a terrific
scare until Len Seelinger, a substi-
tute halfback, in the game for only
three minutes, fired the winning
touchdown pass.
After the Badgers had blasted their
way to Northwestern's four-yard line
only to lose a touchdown on a fum-
ble, they came right back to launch
a scoring surge with Seelinger play-
ing the hero's role. The Wildcats
were-forced to punt to their own.36.
Seeinger, dropping back on a pass-
faking maneuver, suddenly turned
and sprinted 21 yards to the 15.
Then fullback Pat Harder plowed to
the 6 in two attempts.
Seelinger, with the clock ticking
off the final precious seconds, fired
a pass while standing on the 6-yard
stripe. The ball sailed into the out-
stretched arms of Mark Hoskins
standing in the end zone. As Hoskins
grabbed the ball, he fell to the
ground less than a yard inside the
field, but he finally held on to come
up with the all-important slim mar-
vin.
The Wildcats, who for the first
time since 1923 completed their Con-
ference season without a victory,
played a superb game, chalking up
14 first downs to 11 for Wisconsin
and nearly matched the Badgers in
rushing, gaining 165 yards to 173.
Graham, the pass-master, completed
10 of 21 aerials for 94 yards.

ium .. the Navy is now using the
massive parking lots for drill fields.
Louis Elbel was the happiest man
in the stadium during half-time.
Forty-four years ago he composed
"Hail to the Victors" and he had to
wait until toddy to lead the U. of M.
band at his home town. Elbel runs a
music store here.
Three bands performed at half-
time-Michigan, Notre Dame and
the Navy band which is stationed
at the V-7 school here. The boys
in the press box said that the
Michigan band put on the finest
show they had ever seen here.
Professor Revelli's boys had to
stand all the way from Ann Arbor
to Niles . . . and they got here just
in time for the game. Most of the
Over a thousand loyal Michigan
fans waited three-quarters of an
hour in the cold November evening
to cheer the victorious Wolverines
as they arrived home at 10:30 p.m.
last night.
The Michigan Central depot was
jammed with students and other
followers of the Maize and Blue
long before the train pulled into the
station, and cheers arose as each
member of the varsity stepped off
the car.
In the absence of organized
cheering, the crowd kept itself in
high spirits singing school songs
during the time between the sched-
uled and actual arrival of the train.
spectators stayed in the stadium at
the end of the game to watch, the
Michigan band parade up and down
the field with their, hats on back-
wards.
Ensign Gordon Hardy, former
Michigan League bandmaster, who
was in from Chicago's Naval Pier
for the game, offered condolences
to Jim "Extra Point" Brieske who
missed three conversions today, one
more than he had missed all sea-
son. Brieske told Hardy that he
doesn't care how many he misses
if it means Michigan will keep
winning.
Notre Dame must have been
afraid of the fleet-footed Michigan
backs ... they kept dropping the
ball out of bounds on the kick-offs.
But this backfired because their
kicks were bad.
The Irish were gunning for Kuzma
.. fast and rough tackling knocked
his helmet off four times in the first
quarter alone. Irish Couch Frank
Leahy played a hard game . . . he
followed his team up and down the
sidelines ... he couldn't keep still.
Michigan's second touchdown
came on the same fake placement
play that beat Ohio State three.
years ago ... eagle-eyed Wolverine
fans should have known that
Brieske wasn't going to kick.. . the

Harbor Beach sophomore went
through all sorts of leg-limbering
exercises just before the ball was
snapped . . . ordinarily he doesn't
move a muscle until he's set to
kick.
Eleven radio stations, one major!
network and 215 working newspaper-
men filled the press box to overflow-
ing . . . Irish publicity director Joe
Petritz said it was the largest crowd
the box ever had.
The football was auctioned off
for $44.725 in pre-game bidding...
high' bidder was a local children's
hospital ... the players and coaches
autographed the pigskin.
Trackman Bob Ufer, down to spot
for NBC Sportscaster Bill Stern,
couldn't get a hotel room and slept
in a Notre Dame dormitory. Accord-
ing to tradition, a gang of Irish pull-
ed him out of bed at 6 a.m. and
dragged him off to mass to pray for
an Irish victory. Bob fooled them
and prayed for Michigan.
Tom Brock, Notre Dame's third-
string center, who saw quite a bit
,of action, centers the ball with just
one hand ... both of Notre Dame's
goal line stands were on the one,
yard line . . . the Wolverines were
fooled four times by the old Statue-
of-Liberty play . . . Iand once it
meant a touchdown.
End Phil Sharpe was out on his
feet for a few seconds in the third'
quarter . . . he didn't know it, but it
was Julie Franks' knee that hit him
... Captain Ceithaml almost knocked
hi mself out . .. he fell, his foot hit
his clenched fist and ,he caught it
in the jaw.
Defeated Coach Leahy had this
to say after the game: "After wait-
ing such a long time, perhaps it
would have been wiser to have
waited just a little longer . . . for
a weaker Michigan team to come
along. It looks as if Michigan had
spent the last 33 years collecting
those boys they threw against us
today."
According to Dr. A. W. Coxen, none
of the Michigan boys were hurt afd
all should be in good shape for OSU
next Saturday. The winners usually
never get hurt, Coxen explained, but
the losers always seem to receive the
larger share of injuries.
Creighton Miller, the Irish half
back who did most of the running
Iwild that Notre Dame did, is the
son of Harry Miller, the great Notre
Dame back who starred against
Michigan in 1909. A brother, Tom
Miller, is also on the squad.
After the contest, about a hundred
stadium guards protected the goal
posts against enthusiastic fans who
wanted to carry home a little me-
mento for the "little woman' . . .
Notre Dame's stadium housed the
players in dug-outs during the game
. . . the same type they have in base-
ball parks.

Wild Tilt Ends
Illinois"Hopes of
Championship
Best Illini Team in
Years Can't Beat Bucks
CLEVELAND. Nov. 14.-(IP)-Ohio
State, attacking with devastating
fury, trounced its old rival, Illinois,
44 to 20stoday to take over undis-
puted first place in the Western
Conference football race before
68,656 chilly fans.
The loss eliminated Illinois, with
one of itssstrongest teams since the
boom gridiron days of the '20s, from
the title chase. Iowa, which had
been in a three-way tie for the lead
with Ohio and the Illini, was top-
pled by Minnesota, 27 to 7.
From the time little Leslie Hor-
vath, Ohio halfback, sprinted 36
yards for a touchdown in the first
Con'ference game ever staged here,
the Bucks held the edge..
Horvath,f hard-driving Paul Sar-
ringhaus, the other halfback, and
Sarringhaus' alternate, red-haired
Tommy James, held the spotlight
in the high-scoring game at Cleve-f
land's lake front stadium.
Horvath's first run came after
seven minutes of play. He scored
again in the third period by slipping
around end for six yards.
But it was Sarringhaus, who uses
contact lens because of poor vision,
who was largely responsible for the
Bucks' success. Besides scoring
touchdowns on a one-Yard plunge
and a 47-yard pass from Horvath,
the hard-driving Sarringhaus turned
in sensational punting.
