Bob Kelly kicked from his own six
to ank Fonde on the 40. Fonde ap-
parently had a touchdown on the re-I
turn, but officials ruled he stepped out
on the Navy 13.
Weisenburger Goes Over
Fonde picked two around right end.
Weisenburger then pitched a short
jump pass to Fonde, who got to the
two. Weisenburger went over on the
next play. George Chiames kicked
the extra point, making the score 13-
Michigan had two great opportuni-
ties to score before the half ended,
but failed to capitalize on either. The
first occurred when Mike Prashaw
broke through to block Minisi's punt,
and Joe Soboleski recovered for the
Wolverines on the Navy 31.
Dan Dworsky rammed through cen-
ter to the 17. Two line plays gained
two. Elliott then cut loose a picture
pass that Leonard Ford had in his
hands and dropped in the end zone.
A missed signal ruined any chance to
gain on the final play of the series.
The clock thwarted Michigan's sec-
ond effort. Starting on their own 44,
the Wolverines cut loose with a bar-
rage of passes that carried to the
Navy 16. Elliott did the throwing
with Fonde on the receiving end most
of the time.
Wolverines Miss Chance
Weisenburger slipped up the mid-
dle to the four, but two passes and
a running play failed to cover the
final distance as the half ended.
The first half of the third quarter
was purely a punting duel with the
ball moving up and down the field
between the 30 yard lines. Michigan
finally got a break when Dworsky in-
tercepted Smith's long heave and
came back to his own 34.
Jenkins countered that by snaring
Elliott's pass on the next play and
bringing it to the Michigan 33. Scott
got a first down at the 15 on a sweep,


but the Middies lost six yards in the
next four plays.
Navy made another break for itself
when right tackle Newbold Smith
blocked Weisenburger's punt out of
bounds on the Wolverine 13, and this
one paid off. On the next play, the
Middies dusted off the old Statue of
Liberty and Minisi went over stand-

Middies Begin Romp
Navy scored again the next time it
got its hands on the ball. Again a
pass interception provided the oppor-
tunity, and it came at the very end
of the third quarter. Johnny Welsh
did the honors this time, taking El-
liott's pass away from Art Renner
on the Wolverine's 35. Joe Bartos,
unheralded halfback from Lorraine,
Ohio, uncorked successive runs of 11
and 24 yards for the touchdown.
Currence's kick was perfect, the score
was Navy 27, Michigan 7.
Michigan fought back gamely,
marchin gto the Navy 25 via the air
before losing the ball on downs.
But Navy was not to be denied its
field day and went roaring down field
again for its fifth score. A fumble
by Fonde on an attempted punt re-
turn was the break this time.
Taking over on the Michigan 44,
the Middies had a touchdown in six
plays. A flank pass from Bruce Smith
to Pete Williams covered the final six
yards after Bartos and Kelly had set

Badg~ers Row
MADISON, Wis., Nov. 10-(IP)-
Northwestern and Wisconsin fought
on even terms through three periods
of a Big Ten football game today,
but two Badgers fumbles in the final
quarter proved costly as the Wildcats
recovered and went on to scores that
proved the margin of victory. The
score was 28 to 14.
It was a great offensive battle
through the first three periods and up
to the final quarter there had been
only three punts.
Sharp passing by halfback Jim
Farrar accounted for two of the Wild-
cat touchdowns and line smashes by
Dick Connors brought the other pair
after Northwestern had recovered
Wisconsin fumbles deep in Badger
territory. The Badgers got one touch-
down through the air and another on
a line smash after marches of 80 and
60 yards with Jerry Thompson and
Ben Bendrick doing most of the ball

Even the referee took a beating as
the Illini, paced by willowy Jack
Pierce who unreeled touchdown runs
of 82 and 57 yards, exploded for 26
points in the second period and
coasted to an easy victory.
Referee Lyle Clarno from Bradley
Tech was carried from the field with
a fractured ankle after he was mowed
down as Al Zummerma galloped 19

in the second period.

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 10 - For
more than 50 sodden minutes an
underdog Pitt football team threat-
ened to spring the upset of a score-
less tie, or even a victory, in its
football gamne with Ohio State in
the muck and mire that was the
Pitt Stadium field today, but the
aroused and desperate Buckeyes
finally surged to two quick touch-
downs and a 14 to 0 victory.
Twenty thousand drooping and
bedraggled spectators who braved
the steady, dreary drizzle were re-
warded with thrilling defensive
stands by the Pitt team, and even
one mighty, but futile, threat by the
Panthers, before Ohio State speed
and might had its way.
That one great. threat, at the
start of the final period, was the
swan song of the stubborn Pitt
eleven. Ohio State took over the
ball after a fourth down Pitt pass
into the end zone had failed and
marched 80 yards to score. Alex
Verdova splashing around his left
end, and bowling over Jim Robin-
son with a headlong surge, went 18
yards for the touchdown.
Short minutes later speedy Ollie
dine, the standout offensive Buck-
eye back today, sliced through the
Pitt line and raced 63 yards to cross
the goal, and the Saturated game
was on ice, although the Bucks tried
to cool it still more in the fading
moments and had the ball on the
Pitt 10 as the game ended.

About 2500 Midshipmen paraded'

misty rain that finally subsided about
midway through the first quarter.
The skies continued to threaten all

It was Navy's second victory in the
five-game series. Michigan has won
two, one by a 54-0 score in 1928, the
largest count ever rolled up, against
the Middies. The other was tied.
