four passes went awry and the Irish

The Irish scored in less than five
minutes of the opening quarter the
first time they got the ball, with

a 44-yard drive. Steve Nemeth came

Gophers Strike Peak
In Victory at Madison j
Minnesota's Golden Gophers con-
quered Wisconsin's gallant Badgers,
28 to 26, today in their Big Ten foot-
ball final, but only after a hair-
raising offensive battle.
The Gophers, who have improved
with every game since the middle of
the season, appeared to have struck
their peak as they rolled up a two-
touchdown advantage by midway of
the second period. But before they
finished their work, they had to come
from behind in the final quarter, as
the Badgers, sparked by Freshman
Earl (Jug) Girard, went into the
lead and held it going into the clos-
ing period.
Girard, playing his first game
since being injured early in the Bad-
gers' game with Purdue three weeks
ago, was off the target with his pas-
ses in the early part of the game but
found the range and throwing for
long gains and using his aerials as
a threat, had the powerful Gophers

CHICAGO, NOV. 25-Death today,
claimed 78-year-old ,Kenesaw Moun-
tain Landis, baseball's "indispensa-
ble" man for nearly a quarter of a
Unwavering, fearless, and always
the champion of the "little guy," the
Commissioner and former federal
jurist died of heart disease in St.
Luke's Hospital at 5:35 a. m.
His death left the Major Leagues
without a guiding genius for the first
time since 1921 and placed tremen-
dous importance on the National and
American League winter meeting
here Dec. 11 and 12 when a succes-
sor probably will be named.
Just a week ago when the white-
thatched Commissioner was fretting
over what he protested was an over-
ly-long hospital stay, a joint commit-
tee of the two leagues recommended
that Landis be re-elected for another
seven-year term when his current
term expired Jan. 12, 1946.
Chided Physician
Ostensibly cheered by that vote of
confidence, Landis chided his physi-
cian for warnings that his condition
was delicate. But he suffered a set-
back Sunday and last night was plac-
ed under an oxygen tent a little more
than an hour before he died. He
entered the hospital Oct. 2 suffering
from a severe cold, but previously had
over-taxed his heart working in his
victory garden in suburban Glencoe.
Baseball officials to a man mourn-
ed his death as not only a great blow
to the national pastime, but a keen
Hoppe Nearing
CHICAGO, NOV. 25-( )-Cham-
pion Willie Hoppe of New York this
afternoon came within 50 points ofI
sewing up his 1,500-point match for'
the world's three-cushion billiards
championship with Welker Cochrane
of San Francisco as he defeated the
challenger 50 to 44 in 37 innings.
Final session of the 30-block match
will be held tonight with Hoppe ahead
by 76 points, 1,450 to 1,374. This
afternoon, Hoppe trailed 17 to 32 in
21 innings, but finished strong. He
tied the score 42-42 with a run of
six in the 31st inning and went out
in the 37th with a run of four.

loss to the nation at large. Base-
balldom, however, will not be able
to pay immediate homage to his
memory. In compliance with Lan-
dis' wishes, there will be no funeral
services. A cremation will take place
privately and friends have been re-
quested not to send flowers.
O'Connor Fills In
Until the Major League meetings,
at least, the Commissioner's office
will be conducted by his secretary,
Leslie M. O'Connor, who was at Lan-
dis' bed-side with his family when
he died and wept as he read a for-
mal statement announcing the Com-
missioner's death.
The Major League agreement
which perpetuates the office of Com-
missioner provides that the President
of the United States may be request-
ed to name a Commissioner if three
months after Landis' death a suc-
cessor has not been named.
The stern-visaged, shaggy-haired
Landis, who was born Nov. 20, 1866,
at Millville, Ohio, loved and fought
for baseball with an indescribable
fervor ever since 1920 when he be-
came High Commissioner.
Never Wavered
When baseball strategists gave
Landis that job, replacing the old
National Commission of the late Ban
Johnson, president of the American
League, John A. Heydler, president
of the National League, and Garry,
Hermann, president of the Cincin-
nati Reds, they knew they were pick-
ing an iron-handed ruler.
It was perhaps the only means of
repairing the seemingly irreparable
damage done by the "Black Sox"
scandal in the World Series of 1919
between Chicago and the Cincin-
nati Reds. Public confidence in base-
ball was at low ebb and the game
was in danger of disorganizing.
Landis, down through the years,
never faltered or wavered in decis-
ions, lashing with a sharp tongue and
nimble wit at whomever he consid-
ered a wrong-doer-official or hired

it is at the piano playing

ture of Truman playing
the piece at the piano aft-

chased the score and sent
it to the Senator with the
request that he autograph
it. Truman complied and

ciencies in the score to

Paderewski himself on the

to devote his time -to duties
in the law school. Dr. Ad-

his duties as Provost, chief
