Game Highlights ..

There weren't too many people
in the stands as the opening whistle
gave the signal for hostilities to
start between the Wolverines and
Wisconsin in University Stadium
yesterday. In fact, not more than
15,000 were on hand. Quite a con-
trast with several weeks ago when
Notre Dame invaded Ann Arbor and
over 86,000 filled the seats.
Rudy Smeja was acting captain
for the contest, and during the
final ten seconds said captain was
warmirg up furiously along the
sidelines, apparently preparing to
enter the game. Just as he dashed
up to the referee, however, the gun
went off-all of which didn't both-
er Smeja in the least. He was
merely getting possession of the
ball, which was given to hint after
e .game as a memento.
Wisconsin Coach Harry Stuhldre-
her felt quite at home when he vis-
ited Ann Arbor yesterday. Ten of
his former charges graced the start-
ing-line -up of the Maize and Blue.
The only department the Badgers
dominated the whole afternoon was
the "toss-up." They won it-and
chose to kick!
Joe Keenan, Badger center, played
outstanding ball for the visitors, time
and again crashing through into
Michigan's backfield to break uip
plays. This lad played first string
on Notre Dame's great freshman
team last year and in addition play-
ed a little with the Iowa Seahawks
this season before being transferred
to Wisconsin.
One of the greatest sparkplugs1
in the Wolverine backfield yester-l
day afternoon was reserve half-i

back Earl Maves. This particular
Marine trainee has shown marked
improvement as the season pro-
gresses. Against the Badgers he
gained many valuable yardage on
his end-around plays, in addition
to his line-smashing attempts. In
the final quarter he received foot-
ball's biggest thrill when he caught
a pass from Bob Nussbaumer and
went on to score his first touch-
down of the year.
If the Maize and Blue garners 24
points in its remaining game against
the Ohio State Buckeyes it will rank
as the highest scoring team ever
turned out by Fritz Crisler in his
fourteen years as head coach at
Minnesota, Princeton, and Michigan.
It was his 1934 season at Princeton
that his eleven made the greatest
number of points, 280, despite the
fact that Yale defeated them, 7-0.
Michigan's defense retained its
leading position in the Big Ten,
with an average of holding the op-
ponents to 150 yards per.game, when
it held Wisconsin to a minute 67.
There was only one thing lacking
at the game, and that was the "Gun-
ner," the unofficial mascot of the
Navy and Marine trainees stationed
at the West Quad. The players and
spectators missed his capers on the,
playing field. This was the first
game he missed this season, and
everyone is trusting that he makes
it to the Ohio State tussle here next
Michigan drew two major penal-
ties of fifteen yards each for holding,
plus other smaller ones, which is an
indication of how hard the players

... EAL .v'ES
. . reserve nat-back, got his
big chance in yesterday's game,
dodging over for Michigan's final
score on a pass from Bob Nuss-
fought through the entire game.
Several times the Badgers tried to
fox the Maize and Blue defenders
by electing to run on their fourth
down with a few yards yet to go for
a first. This irregular football prov-
ed very successful at times.
Michigan has been blessed this
season with more than its share
of good extra-point kickers. Be-
ginning with Merv Pregulman,
continuing with Bill Daley when
Merv wasn't in, and finally Rex
Wells ,who took over when Pregul-
man and Daly were shifted to oth-
er Naval training stations.

Down After Final Gun
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 13.-4M-
Ohio State defeated Illinois 29 to 26
today before 36,331 fans-and des-
pite a day filled with long runs,
steady marches and scintillating per-
formances, all the drama was packed
in the last two seconds whei the
Bucks captured the verdict long after
everyone thought the game was over.
In fact, the wholeweird yarn is
wrapped up in the thrill-packed 12
minutes after what appeared to be
the final gun sounded.
With the score deadlocked at 26-
26, Ohio had blasted its way from its
own 41 to the Illinois 15, only to lose
the ball on a fumble. Two plays lat-
er the Bucks regained the ball the
same way on the 21. Two seconds re-
mained to play, and Ohio tried a
pass which sailed into the end zone as
the final shot sounded.
Teams Leave Field
The teams raced for the dressing
rooms, and the fans filed from the
stadium, meantime P. C. Goebel of
Michigan, the head-linesman, was
gesticulating wildly that Illinois had
been offside. The teams were ordered
back for one more play-but the fans
continued to leave, not knowing what
was going on.
Twelve minutes after the final shot
the teams lined up and Coach Paul
E. Brown sent John Stungis, 17-year-
old substitute quarterback, into the
fray. Stungis, with substitute full-
back Bob McQuade holding the ball,
calmly booted a field goal from about
25 yards out-and the three points
broke Illinois' heart and Ohio's Big
Ten losing streak at the same time.
Prior to that classic denouement,
the teams had shown a bit of every-
thing. The Illini, calling on "scat"
backs Eddie Bray and Eddie McGov-
ern, last year's national scoring lead-
er, played the Bucks to a standstill.
The two kids raced around, over and
through the Bucks for long runs ga-
lore, McGovern getting two touch-
downs and he and Bray setting up
two others for quarterback Don

EVANSTON, Ill., Nov. M---4411)-

Old Notre Dame still reigns over all.
The "Fighting Irish" undefeated
and untied, roared to a 25-6 victory
over Northwestern today, not only to
retain their place as the nation's No.
1 football eleven, but to further es-
tablish rank with the greatest Notre
Dame teams in history.
The Irish must now conquer the
undefeated and untied Iowa Sea-
hawks a week hence and Great Lakes
in the final game of the season to
become the first Notre Dame team
since the days of Knute Rockne to
go through a season unbeaten and
A record-smashing crowd of 49,124,
largest ever in Dyche Stadium,
watched the South Bend supermen
register their eighth straight triumph.
However, Northwestern held Notre
Dame to the lowest number of points
of any team this season.


Yonakor for 18 yards andi Julie Ryko-
vich churned into the end zone to
score on the next play.
Lujack's attempted place-kick was
blocked, but with quick thinking he,
scooped un the, ball and ran it across
to give the Irish their only after-
touchdown point of the game.
After the ensuing kick-off, the Ir-
ish capitalized on another fumble,
Otto Graham bobbling a bad pass
from center. Paul Limont fell on the
ball on the Northwestern 29 and sev-
en plays later Lujack spotted a five-
yard pass to Kelly at the corner of
the field'for the final marker.

Record Crowd Sees
Notre Dame Win 25-6


Irish Move in Second Half
Notre Dame, held to a 6-0 margin
at the half, gained momentum in the
remaining two periods with its great,
running left halfback, Creighton Mil-
ler, and 18-year-old Johnny Lujack
in command of the T formation, set-
ting off the dynamite.
The Irish scored first in the last
two minutes of the second period,
reserve Bob Kelly smashing over from
the two to cap an 84-yard parade
which featured Miller's running and,
Lujack's 22-yard pass to his towering
battery mate, John Yonakor, right
Miller, who accounted for 151 yards
of his team's total of 302 by rushing,
again led a drive at the start of the
third period which carried 50 yards
and ended when he drilled over from
the one.
Fumble Provides Chance
Before the final period concluded,
Ziggy Czarobski recovered Joe
Scriba's fumble on the Wildcat 34
to give the Irish a running start for
their third touchdown at the outset
of the final period. Lujack speared to

ANN'ARBOR was this
week the scene of the first
Inter-American and the
second world conference of
the Schools of Public
Health. The meetings were
held in the University's
bright new building which
houses a new school, the
School of Public Health.
. .Dr. Thomas Parron,
Surgeon General of the
United States, opened the
conference Monday morn-
ing. He spoke of the torch
of hygienic knowledge
burning brightly "in all
lands. for all people."--
Dr. G. H. Paula Souza, Dir-
ector of the School of Hy-
giene in Sao Paulo, Brazil,
suggested public health as
"a common denominator"
for different nationalities.
. President of the W. K.
Kellogg Foundation, Dr.
George B. Darling, pointed
