Hoernschemeyer Bottled as Michigan

Trips Indiana, 23-6


Wolverine Attack Spotty
Minus Daley, Pregulman

(Continued from Page 1)


Tallies for Michigan

taling 85 yards, the Wolverine attack
showed none of the power it had
when Daley was plummeting through
holes blasted by Pregulman, the gi-
ant tackle. Time after time the Wol-
verines bogged down in their power
drive and were either forced to kick
or give up the ball some other way.
Forwards Are Aggressive
As for Hoernschemeyer's poor per-
formance, it can be credited to Mich-
igan's aggressive forwards who har-
assed the game Hoosier throughout
the battle. Indiana's triple-threat
star had no time to spot his receivers
as he did in seven previous games
when he completed 41 out of 110
passes for nearly 1,000 yards.
Yesterday's game will be a blot on
Hunchy's record. He picked up only
48 yards. And to add insult to in-
jury, the Wolverines intercepted four
of his flips, including Smeja's touch-
down return.
Michigan Penalized Often
Something can be said for the type
of football played by the two teams.
The civilian-manned Hoosier eleven
presented a clean brand of football,
marred by only one 15-yard penalty.
On the other hand, the Wolverines
were set back repeatedly by penalties.
in their roughest performance of the
Coach Fritz Crisler will send his
Wolverines against hapless Wiscon-
sin here next Satu day, closing the
season the following week against
Ohio' State's frosh-civilian eleven.

Varsity Set's
Pass Stealing
Record at 18
AFTER Michigan had intercepted
Hunchy Hoernschemeyer's fourth
straight aerial, announcer Bob Kelley
told Detroit radio fans that it was,
a new record for the Wolverines. It
seems that yesterday's four stolen
passes, added to 14 others grabbed
by Wolverines throughout the sea-
son, make a total of 18 for a new
all-time mark. It's too bad we had
to do it at Hunchy's expense .. .
ETITHER THE RAIN obscured our
vision or our eyes are losing
their touch, but we could have
sworn that there was a young lady
prancing up and down the sidelines
with a camera. First, Marion Ford,
Daily managing editor and United
Press correspondent, invades the
Stadium press box to break a tra-
dition. Then, Katie Tripp joins the
sideline parade of picture-takers.
Well, if we have to look at anyone
down there, it might as well be
Katie . . .
THERE was one case of attempted
larceny (petty, we call it) that
didn't escape our eyes. Ed Sidwell,
Hoosier tackle, tried to steal the ball
out of Don Lund's hands. Apparently,
Sidwell doesn't know Don as well as
we do. P.S. He didn't get it.
W GLANCING around the sta-
dium at the huge crowd that
stayed away from yesterday's game,
we noticed that there seemed to
be more soldiers, sailors and Ma-
rines in the stands than civilians.
And we heard scattered cheers for
the Hoosiers from these lads--
downright treason . . .
BOB HANZLIK, the Wisconsin
transfer who was acting game
captain, was guilty of unnecessary
roughness in the fourth quarter when
he dumped Hunchy on a pass play
after the Hoosier freshman had toss-
ed the ball away and was minding
his own business. The act didn't
set very well with some of the fans
who noticed it.

Purdue Defeats
Gophers, 14-7,
On Late Pass
Boilermakers Win in
Last 40 Seconds To
Remain Undefeated
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 6-(P)-Pur-
due won its fifth straight game in the
Big Ten today, scoring a touchdown
in the last 40 seconds to beat Minne-
sota, 14-7, before 43,000 home-com-
ing fans.
The Boilermakers' victory came
with startling suddenness when it
seemed as though the game would
end in a 7-7 tie.
A long punt carried the ball to the
Minnesota 10. Three line plays took
it to the 18, at which point Bill Pet-
erson, Gopher quartreback, fumbled
a low pass while trying to punt and
Purdue took over at that point.
One line play failed and then Sam
Vacanti, Purdue' quarerback, shot a
pass which Boris Dimancheff, right
halfback, grabbed in the end zone for
the winning touchdown.
Snow fell during most of the game
and pretty well nullified the aerial
attacks of the teams. Purdue tried
seven aerials, and the only one that
worked was the touchdown heave.
The Gophers didn't try any.
The Boilermakers apparently miss-
ed Lineman Alex Agase and John Ge-
nis, and Fullback Tony Butkovich,
lost by transfer, as the Gophers made
most of their gains through the cen-
ter of the line. Minnesota rolled up
a net of 240 yards from rushing,
whereas the4winners got only 162.
First downs were even at nine.
Illini Frosh
Top Hawke yes
IOWA CITY, Iowa, Nov. 6.-(IP)-
The statistics showed that Iowa out-
played Illinois in the Hawkeyes'
homecoming football game today,
but the scoreboard put the Illini out
in front, 19-10.
The scoring highlight was Eddie
McGovern's 95-yard jaunt for a sec-
ond period Illini touchdown, after
intercepting Howie Larson's pass on
his own five. The Illini scored in the
first 11 plays of the game, Green-
wood going over from the four to
climax a 63-yard march after the
The Hawks worked their way to
Illinois' 17, where the Illini braced,
forcing Bill Barbour to boot a 34-
yard placekick for a field goal. Illi-
nois snapped back with its last two
touchdowns, scored by Bray from the
three after a 60-yard march, and by
McGovern on his 95-yard jaunt.
The third period was scoreless, but
it saw Iowa set up its lone touch-
down. A 39-yard pass from Roger
Stephens to Henry Terrell was com-
pleted on the one-yard line as the
quarter ended. On the second play
of the fourth period Bill Gallagher
crashed over. Barbour kicked the
extra point.

Navy Beat
Penn, 24=-7
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 6. -(/P)-
Picking themselves off the floor from
last week's Notre Dame disaster,
Navy's slashing Middies smeared
Pennsylvania's unbeaten record all
over Franklin Field, 24-7, today, led
by "half-pint" Harold Hamberg.
It was a magnificent comeback for
a Navy eleven that suffered a bad
scare in the first half when Bob
Odell, Penn's Iowa ace, galloped 41
yards with an intercepted pass to
score the lone Quaker tally and bring
the vast sell-out crowd of 71,215 to its
That was the way it was as the
third quarter opened. Before the
shooting was over, Hamberg had set
up one touchdown with a 43-yard
punt return, had scored another and
had passed for a third.
Navy Outrushes Quakers
Penn was able to put together only
three first downs, against the Mid-
dies 18, and were held to a net of
24 yards rushing, compared to Navy's
In addition to his second half spree,
Hamberg had a big hand in the open-
ing touchdown in the first quarter
when he heaved a 22-yard pass to Al
Channell on the Penn one. Finos
ploughed through the middle for the
Midway of the third quarter Ham-
berg skipped 43 yards to the 13 on
a brilliant run during which eight
Penn players missed tackles on him.
Finos went over again.
A 39-yard parade resulted in Navy's
first tally in the final chapter. Ham-
berg went over from the 2.
Bill Shephard, a second-string
guard, recovered a Quaker fumble a
few minutes later on the Penn 23.
This time, Hamberg heaved to Roe
Johnston on the 14 and the right
end lateralled to Hume who did the
San Diego Sailors
Upset Tr a i, 107
SAN DIEGO, Calif., Nov. 6.-(A)-
A San Diego Naval Training Station
eleven sprung one of the season's
big football upsets today by whip-
ping the previously unbeaten, untied,
unscored-on Trojans of the Univer-
sity of Southern California, 10-7.
The Bluejackets, coached by Bo
Molenda, formerly of the University
of Michigan, were keyed to a fighting
pitch for this one game and they
capitalized on frequeht Trojan fum-
bles and errors in judgment.
Bears Rout 'Frisco
California's Bears defeated the Uni-
versity of San Fransisco, 32-0, in
their football game today before 5,000
California, heavier, bigger and en-
joying superior experience, scored in
every period, twice in the first.

NEW YORK, Nov. 6-(P)-Most
every time you looked up in the
fourth period of today's Army-Notre
Dame football game a guy wearing a
green shirt was playing hide and seek
behind the Cadet goal posts in full
view of 76,000 spectators. So the
Irish won, 26-0.
In the first half Notre Dame built
up a 6 to 0 advantage, but after the
rest the South Benders marched with
relative ease to their seventh straight
win of the season. The Irish piled up
17 first downs and 233 yards by rush-
Irish Stretch Streak
The defeat was the first of the
year for the Cadets but extended
Bucks Smash
Panthers, 46-6
PITTSBURGH, Nov. 6.-OP)-Ohio
State, operating with a host of fleet,
talented freshman backs, finally ex-
ploded its power today and the result
was a crushing 46-6 triumph over the
hapless Pitt Panthers. It was the
highest score run up by the Ohioans
this year.
The Bucks, beaten five times in six
previous contests, electrified a crowd
of 30,000 by driving for touchdowns
the first four times they got their
hands on the ball and scoring almost
at will until their regulars were
yanked. They also poured over three
more touchdowns in the second peri-
od while being forced to punt but
Only Coach Paul Brown's decision
to play mostly his third string substi-
tutes in the last half kept the Pan-
thers from absorbing perhaps their
worst beating in history.
It was only then that Pitt could
score. Joe Mocha engineered a pass
and two tricky laterals in the third
period to propel the Panthers 70
yards to the Buck one-foot line,.
where Johnny Itzel rammed over.

their losing streak in this series to 13
years without a victory and they now
have been shut out in five of the last
six games,
It didn't take Johnny Lujack who
inherited the Notre Dame quarter-
backing job when Angelo Bertelli was
transferred to the Parris Island Mar-
ine camp, but a few minutes to dis-
cover that the Cadets' pass defense
was a one-man affair.
Lujack Comes Through
He rifled a 30-yarder to John Yo-
nakor which that towering end
caught along in the end zone for the
first touchdown early in the opening
period and completed a trio of tosses
before the Cadets discovered it still
was legal to bat them down.
The next Irish marker also came
through the air with Lujack demon-
strating that Bertelli's passing won't
be missed* greatly. This time he
reached Yonakor again from the six-
yard line after tackle Jim White had
set up the play by stealing the ball
from Army's Glenn Davis on the
eight-yard line two plays before.
Davis Is Game's Goat
Davis, who was the hero of the
Army forces early in the season, ap-
peared to be the game's goat until
the Irish point-deluge in the fourth.
Prior to that he had twice ended Ca-
det marches by fumbling deep in ene-
my territory in addition to letting
White wipe the ball for the second
But after the fourth session got un-
der way it was apparent to everyone
that his mistakes were of little con-
sequence. Notre Dame started a land
march on its own 26 and hurried a-
long the ground to touchdown land
74 yards away with Fred Earley doing
the actual scoring. A few minutes
later Lujack was back in the lineup
and duplicated the feat.
Not e Dame played with the handi-
cap of a make-shift backfield, Lu-.
jack subbing for Bertelli and Bob
Kelly starting in place of the ailing
Julie Rykovich, but a quartet of cho-
rus girls could have performed be-
hind the Irish line.

lettermen who snared one of Hunchy
Hoernschemeyer's passes for the
Hoosier's lone tally against Michigan.
Pihos was one of the losers' line
standouts. '
Wildcats Beat
Wisconsin, 41-0
MADISON, Wis., Nov. 6.- (R)-
Dexterous Otto Graham, Northwes-
tern's all-purpose handy man, ran,
kicked, and passed the Wildcats to a
41 to 0 Big Ten football triumph over
a lowly Wisconsin eleven today.
Before a homecoming crowd of1
11,000, Graham scored four touch-'
downs, pitched a pass to a mate for
another and kicked three extra
The victorytwas Northwestern's
fifth in six starts and its fourth in
Conference play. For Wisconsin it
was the seventh loss in eight games,
and the fourth consecutive Saturday
without a touchdown.
The Wildcats scored three times in
the first quarter, twice in the third,
and once in the fourth, missing only
during the second when reserves
were on the field. Wisconsin playing
its last home game of the season,
threatened only once, advancing to
the Wildcat 23 in the fourth period.
Northwestern made 12 first downs
to Wisconsin's five and rolled up 240
yards by rushing to 41 for the Badg-
