EAST LANSING, Mich., Nov. 14.-
(P)-- Michigan State's Spartans ex-
ploded for three second-half touch-
downs to rout a hapless Purdue team,
19-6. before 7,500 fans here today. It.
was the seventh defeat in eight starts
for the Boilermakers.
After a listless, scoreless first half,
the Spartans came to life with two
touchdowns in the third period by
galloping Dick Kieppe, 175-pound
halfback, who romped ?8 yards for
one score and bucked a yard for the
State took a 19-0 lead in the final
period on a 30-yard pass from sopho-
more Elbert Stark to end Bob McNeill.
With five minutes left, theBoiler-
makers clicked for their lone touch-
down with fullback Bill Buffington
smashing across from the one-foot
line to cap an 83-yard march.
Halfback Jack Fenton of State
connected once in three placement
tries for extra points, while halfback

Johnny Strain missed Purdue's only
conversion attempt.
Purdue's stellar Kenny Smock,
making his first appearance in three
games, was unable to match the indi-
vidual brilliance of State's Kieppe and
fullback Morgan Gingrass, and the
Boilermakers failed to penetrate be-
yond State's 34 for 'more than three
Kieppe skipped to an even 100
yards by rushing, while Gingrass
rolled up 74 to account for State's
total net scrimmage gain of 174 yards.
Purdue drove to only 51 yards from
scrimmage, but finished with a first
down of 'eight to seven, due mainly to
five pass completions good for 88
Outstanding in State's line were
Roskopp, tackle Alger Conner, guard
George Radulescu, and center Bill
Monroe who performed consistently
in the absence of injured Howie Beyer.

the three touchdowns that gave them
their ninth win in the ten game se-
ries with Notre Dame.
For Michigan, Kuzma tallied two
of the five touchdowns, while Ceit-
haml, Robinson and White each
accounted for one of the other three.
Bob Dove, All-American Notre Dame
end, caught an Angelo Bertelli heave
for the first Irish score, and Creigh-
ton Miller, son of the Harry Miller
who led the Ramblers to their only
victory over the Wolverines in 1909,
crossed the goal line twice.
Michigan held Notre Dame's vaunt-
ed passing star, Bertelli, to six com-
pletions out of 14 aerial attempts,

covered for the.Maize and Blue on the
Irish 36, and once again the Wolve-
rine was on the prowl.
After a forty yard end around play
by Madar and a 19 yard center smash
by Wiese, who was leading ground
gainer of the day with the total of
114 yards, had placed the ball within
the shadow of the Rambler goal posts,
Michigan pulled the neatest bit of
deception of the entire fracas, full of
Robbie Scores on Fake
Brieske and Don Robinson entered
the game to try what everybody
thought would be a field goal. The
ball was ten yards on the left of the
posts, and Robinson, kneeling to hold
the pigskin, tucked it under his arm
and rose from his knees to scamper
around left end for pay dirt, com-
pletely bewildering the Irish defense.
Dove blocked Brieske's extra point at-
tempt, but Michigan led 13-7.
Notre Dame received a break on
the next series of downs which gave
them another touchdown and a 14-13
half time lead. Bertelli's punt was
fumbled by Kuzma on the Michigan
13, and Captain Bob. Murphy re-
covered for the Irish. After Clatt had
taken it to the three, C. Miller plunged
over center for the score, and Bertelli
added the extra point.
Irish Hold Michigan
The Irish made a great goal line
stand to stop the :Wolverines after
Michigan had first and goal to go on
the Rambler four yard line, but the
Maize and Blue came back in the
third period to completely annihilate
the strong Notre Dame foces.
They marched 51 yards for the first
of their three consecutive touchdowns.
White and Wiese alternated in lug-
ging the pigskin to the Irish 22, where
Kuzma passed to Madar on the eight
yard line. Then White, who had been
hitting the Rambler right tackle with
extraordinary success all day ripped
over the goal line on three successive
smashes off that point. Brieske con-
verted and Michigan was away 20-13.
Kolesar Recovers Fumble
C. Miller fumbled Pregulman's
kickoff on the Notre Dame 25, and
when Kolesar recovered, the next
Wolverine tally was in the process.
Still capitalizing on the weak spot
uncovered in the Notre Dame line,
White battered his way to the three
yard line in five skirmishes. Kuzma
then took over and with one terrific
lunge over the other tackle, he made
it Michigan 26, Notre Dame 13. Brie-
ske missed the extra point this time,
his fourth failure of the season.
The Wolverines weren't through
yet, however. The next 'drive started
when White intercepted Bertelli's pass
on the Rambler 29. White, on the
same spinner from Wiese that was
proving to be so devastating against
the Irish, rounded left end to the 14.
Kuzma battered to the six, and after
Robinson's touchdown around left end
was nullified because of a Wolverine
penalty, Michigan had to start all
over again from the Rambler 16.
Kuzma Scores
Kuzma flipped to Sharpe who went
all the way to the one yard line, and
on the next play, Kuzma, living up to
all pre-season notices, bolted through
right tackle with one second remain-
ing of the astoundingly productiv
third quarter. Brieske's toe had lost
its magic touch.
Notre Dame, gaining through the
air onnBertelli forwards, countered
again in the fourth quarter, .but the
touchdown was too belated to do any
harm. The Irish produced the longest
march of the day for their last tally,
65 yards by land and air. After Ber-
elli had completed three tosses to
advance the bal to the _Wolverine 18
yard line, Clatt picked up four yards
through right tackle and C. Miller.
on the Statue of Liberty play that had
caught Michigan flat-footed three
previous times today, took the ball
from Bertelli's hand and sped around P
the left flank for the final score of t
the day.

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 14. - (P) -
Minnesota's unpredictable football
team was decidedly "up" today and
trounced Iowa, 27 to 7, to virtually
eliminate the Hawkeyes from any
chance of sharing the Western Con-
ference title. Thirty-three thousand
fans saw the game.
It was Minnesota's third win in five
starts, and Iowa's second loss in the
same number of games.
Held from crossing the Iowa goal
line in the first half, during which
they outrushed the Hawkeyes 135

yards to a net loss of 5, the Gophers
broke loose to score two touchdowns
in each of the third and fourth peri-
ods in a great show of offensive
Minnesota's line was the deciding
factor in stopping Iowa's running at-
tack cold. Tom Farmer, the Hawk-
eyes' star passer was rushed so much
that he had only one chance to show
his aerial stuff.
While Farmner completed four of
11 passes. only one counted. That
was a 35 yard heave which end Bill

Burkett caught in the clear to -com-,
plete a 65-yard gain for a touchdown.
After seeing several goalward drives
stopped in the first half, the Rst one
one the one-foot line in the las min-
ute of the second period, the GO)phers
marched 88 yards to score aft r tak-
ing the third period kickoff. A few
minutes later they scored ag Lin on
a sustained drive of 62 yards.

Irish Score First
It was Bertelli's toss, however, that
gave the Ramblers the opening score
in this unprecedented scoring spree
witnessed here today. Starting from
the Michigan 44, where C. Miller had
returned a Kuzma punt, the Irish
rolled towards pay dirt in an easy
manner which brought dismay to the
hearts of all Wolverine supporters.
Creighton Miller, Corwin Clatt and
Bob Livingstone all combined to
carry the pigskin to the Wolverine
seven yard line in seven plays. Then
Bertelli, on his second attempt of the
day, faded back from his T forma-
tion to pass in the end zone to Dove
for the tally. Bertelli added the extra
point, and things looked black for
Michigan with only seven and a half
minutes completed of the tussle.
Varsity Stages Comeback
But Michigan staged its initial
comeback at this point to show one
and all that the game was far from
over. Kuzma, after fumbling the kick-
off on his own 13, recovered it and
streaked 34 yards down the sideline
to the Michigan 47, and the Wol-
verines were on the way. With Kuzma1
handling the brunt of the ball carry-
ing, and White and Wiese filling in,
they marched to within one foot of
the Irish goal, from which point Ceit-
haml plunged through center on at
quarterback sneak for the first in al
long parade of Michigan touchdowns.r
