Sailors Whitewash
Illinois Team, 6-0
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Nowv. 21.- (.,)-
Great Lakes scored its fifth straight
shutout victory today downing Illi-
nois, 6 to 0, before a crowd of 10,856.
It was the first time this year the
Illini have failed to cross their oppo-
nents' goal line.
.he gSailors made their lone touch-
down in the third period when Bob
Sweiger, former Minnesota fullback;
plunged over from the one-yard line
after his former Gopher teammate,
halfback Bruce Smith, had set up the
play with a brilliant 41-yard sprint
through the Illini secondary.









Wisconsin Leads All the Way as
Pat Harder Spearheads Drives

MADISON, Wis., Nov. 21.-(YP)-An
alert, efficient Wisconsin football
that smashed 61 yards to score in the
first three minutes, checked Minne-
sota's power drives the rest of the
way today to gain a 20 to 6 victory
before 46,000 fans.
The Gophers fought back gamely
but Wisconsin had the stuff to pull
through and turn Gopher mistakes to
its own advantage.
Wisconsin, scored first on a line
smash, added a touchdown late in the
second quarter on a pass after re-

covering a Minnesota fumble on the
Gopher 32, and counted with a line
plunge at the start of the final peri-
od after taking the ball on downs on
the Minnesota 19.
Minnesota, repulsed by alert Bad-
ger defensive play on five occasions,
scored late in the game on a line
plunge by Bill Daley after getting
position on a pass.
The victory gave Wisconsin second
place in the Big Ten race and one
of the best records of recent years
with eight wins, one defeat, and a
Badgers Start Drive
Wisconsin took the opening kickoff
back to its 31 and promptly started
a touchdown march. Elroy Hirsch,
fleet sophomore halfback, passed to
Dave Schreiner, the Badger All-
American end, on the 50. Schreiner
was forced out of bounds on the
Gopher 40.
Pat Harder, plunging fullback, then
took a lateral from quarterback Ash-
ley Anderson and raced around right
end to the 18. He went around left
end to the 12 on the next shot and
on a third try went over tackle to the
four. Another smash through the
line by Harder gave the Badgers a
touchdown. Harder kicked the point
and Wisconsin led, 7 to 0.
Gopher Comeback
The Gophers smashed back to the
Wisconsin 28 on quick opening smash-
es by Vic Kulbitski and Bill Daley,
but lost the ball on downs on the 21
early in the second period.
Late in the second period Herman
Frickey, Gopher safety man, fumbled
a punt on his 32 and Fred Negus,
Wisconsin center, recovered. Hirsch
passed to Schreiner, who caught it
on the 17, and raced for a touchdown.
Harder converted.
A fumble by Hirsch on his own 41,
recovered by Dick Wildung, Minne-
sota's captain, put the Badgers in the
hole in the third period and play was
mostly in their territory the rest of
the quarter. ThetGophers crashed to
the Wisconsin 10 but lost the ball on
downs, and moved to the seven later
on a series of smashes by Daley and
Frickey, but Frickey's fumble stopped
the drive.
Minnesota Gamble Fails
Bob Baumann got off a great punt
to push Minnesota to its 11 in the
final period. The Gophers tried four
plays, and a fourth down gamble gave
Wisconsin the ball on the invaders'
Harder passed to Schreiner on the
four-yard line and then cracked cen-
ter to the two. Anderson went over
for a touchdown on a quarterback
Late in the period Daley, Gopher
halfback, broke loose for a 44-yard
right end run to Wisconsin's 15. Daley
passed sto Bill Garnaas on the one
yard line and then hit right tackle
for a score. Garnaas' try for the extra
point by a placement failed.'

Auburn Upsets
Georgia, 27-13
Amazing Tigers Gain
355 Yards on Ground
COLUMBUS, Ga., Nov. 21.-(?)-
You may bow in silent meditation to-
night for a gridiron empire that was.
Georgia lost today to a brilliant
and under-rated Auburn, 27-13, and
the crash of America's No. 1 football
team probably resounded all the way
to Pasadena, Calif.
While 20,000 hysterical fans looked
on-a goodly majority cheering for
Auburn-the Tigers of mild Jack
Meagher snatched a rumored Rose
Bowl invitation out of Georgia's hip
pocket and kicked it all around
Memorial Stadium in a decisive 56-
minute rout.
Georgia Takes Lead
Georgia won the toss, and scored
the first touchdown within four min-
utes of rthe opening kickoff. Then
Auburn took the initiative and ham-
mered Georgia until the boys from
Athens hollered*"uncle." Six min-
utes and 13 plays were all it took for
big Jim Reynolds and will-o'-the-
wisp Monk Gafford to whipsaw Geor-
gia for a 7-6 lead, and from there
on it was all Auburn.
At half-time Auburn was leading
14-6. At the third quarter it was still
14-6, with Georgia fighting for a
break to turn the tide. Then Auburn
punched over another touchdown,
watched Georgia match it, and fin-
ally lashed out with the coup de
grace, a fourth touchdown scored
when Frankie Sinkwich was knocked
down behind his own goal in an at-
tempt to pass, and Fagan Canzoneri
fell on the fumbled ball.
Statistics Favor Tigers
Auburn rolled up the astounding
total of 355 yards by rushing while
holding Sinkwich and Co. ("dream
backfield" and all) to a net of 37
on the ground.
Georgia threw 34 passes and com-
pleted just 12-a gauge of the ter-
rific pressure Auburn was putting on.
Yardage by air was 190 for Georgia,
of which 177 was credited to Sink-
wich. With 31 yards additional by
rushing, he pushed his total for the
season to 2,023 yards, breaking the
previous national record for total
offense established last year by Bud
Schwenk of Washington University
(St. Louis) of 1,928 yards.
Hunter Wins NCAA Meet
EAST LANSING, Mich., Nov. 21.-
(P)- Oliver Hunter, Notre Dame's
durable distance runner, whipped a
field of 64 in the National Collegiate
Athletic Association's fifth annual
cross-country run here today and
sliced 14.1 seconds off the meet rec-
ord even though he strayed from the
course at one point.
Indiana and Penn State shared the
team title.

SOUTH BEND, Ind., Nov. 21.-()-
Otto Graham's brilliant passing failed
to match the effects of Notre Dame's
pulverizing ground attack led by
sophomore fullback Corwin Clatt to-
day and the Irish snatched a 27 to 20
victory from Northwestern before a
crowd of 30,000.
The Irish had to fight from behind
twice in the first half to match North-

score with Ed Hirsch ramming over
the 2. Clatt capped a 60 yard Irish
push with a five yard buck before the
opening quarter closed.
A 70 yard march by Northwestern
in the second quarter blossomed into
a score when Graham passed 17 yards
to Dud Kean. The Irish came back 61
yards with Clatt wriggling over from
the 1. Sub Al Pick kicked one North-
western extra point while Angelo
Bertelli added one for the Irish to
clamp the count 13 to 13 at the half.
Irish Go Ahead
Notre Dame tucked away the vic-
tory in the third, going ahead for the
first time on a 79-yard jaunt- spear-
headed by Clatt's 47 yards of turf
ripping in three plays. Sophomore
Bob Livingstone topped it off with a
14 yard bolt into the end zone and
Bertelli's toe fired the conversion.
With three minutes left in the peri-
od, Clatt filched Don Buffmire's pass
and raced 15 yards to the North-
western 44. From there, Bertelli
whipped a pass to Joe Limont, then
connected for a 31 yard touchdown
flip to Creighton Miller. John Creevey
booted the point to send the Irish
ahead 27 to 13.
More Graham Passes
Graham uncoiled his arm for the
Wildcats' fourth quarter score, hit-
ting Clarence Hasse, Dud Kean, and
Bob Motl for a gain of 46 yards to
set the props for Hirsch's second
touchdown from the 3. Pick's kick
clicked for the point.
Graham's brilliance in the air com-
pletely overshadowed the attempts of
Notre Dame's passing pride, Bertelli.
The willow-armed Wildcat completed
13 of 23 pitches for 175 pards; Angelo
made 4 in 7 for 72. Graham even out-
gained the running yardage of leg-,
pumping Clatt who clattered 149
yards on 23 trips.
SMU Ties Baylor, 6-6
WACO, Tex., Nov. 21.-(AP)-South-
ern Methodist tied Baylor, 6 to 6, to-
day on a long, fourth period touch-
down pass from Frito Gonzales to
Hardy Miller that definitely put SMU
out of the running for the Southwest
Conference football championship,
but left Baylor still with a mathe-
matic chance.

Graham Stars for Northwestern

Indiana Backs
Romp Against
Purdue, 20-0
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Nov. 21.- (P)-
Indiana University's powerful back-
field turned out to be just that today
and for the first time the Hoosiers
won the Old Oaken Bucket three
years in a row, by defeating Purdue,
20 to 0, before a chilled crowd of
20,000 fans.
Only once were they threatened
and that was in the third period
when southpaw Tony Berto helped
pitch the Boilermakers to the Indiana
16. A missed signal which cost 16
yards and a bad pass ended the
threat, however.
Stanford Wallops Bears
BERKELEY, Calif., Nov. 21.- (IP)-
Stanford's Indians climaxed their
Coast Conference football season in
brilliant fashion today with a stun-
ning 26 to 7 victory over University
of California's hapless Bears.
The red-shirted boys who fumbled
and stumbled their way to three de-
feats to start the 1942 gridiron sched-
ule, finished like champions as they
passed and raced to touchdowns in
every period.
Some 45,000 fans, the smallest "Big
Gaime" crowd in recent years, saw
Stanford's famed T formation func-
tion as it did two years ago when the
Indians charged to the League title
and the Rose Bowl-nomination.

Rice Clips Owls, 26-0
HOUSTON, Tex., Nov. 21.- (IP)-
Rice's battering Owls, paced by a 190-
pound end who also plays in the back-
field, crushed Texas Christian, 26-0,
today to remain in the Southwest
Conference football race and virtually
eliminate the Horned Frogs from
championship consideration.
It was Wendell Williams who led
the boys in blue to one of the most
one-sided defeats of a TCU team in
a decade as 14,000 looked on.
Williams caught passes, made
tackles all over the field and when
shifted to the backfield rolled up 45
yards running with the ball.
It was Dick Dwelle, smashing full-
back, who cashed in on the Rice op-
portunities, scoring two touchdowns
with line smashes

the score at 13 to 13 at intermission,
but in the third period, Notre Dame
pushed across two markers to hole
the Wildcats so badly they could not
emerge despite a 48-yard drive to a
score in the last period.
It was the 22nd game in the school's
bitter rivalry and left the Irish with
17 wins in the series. The Purple have
lost eight out of nine starts this sea-
son, including today.
All the game's touchdown output
