Cards Remain
In Flag Chase
With 4-1 Win
Harry Breeheen Hurls
Masterful Four-Hitter
By The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 28 - Harry (The
Cat) Brecheen took the St. Louis
Cardinals by their neck feathers and
lifted them back into an exact first-
place tie with the Brooklyn Dodgers
tonight by hurling a four-hit 4-1 vii-
tory over the Chicago Cubs in the
next-to-last game of the season.
Handcuffing the Cubs with his left
handed curve and his darting screw-
ball, the veteran "money pitcher"
from Broken Bow, Okla., won the
big one that the Red Birds had to
have. A loss would have practically
eliminated them from. the race.
Brecheen's masterpiece brought
the National League race down to
the finish line in its most exciting
climax in years. Never has an exact
first-place tie existed at the end of
the regular season, but that will hap-
pen tomorrow if the Cards and Dodg-
ers both win or both lose their single
respective games with the Cubs and
Way back in 1908 there was a
"playoff" game after the season that
actually was a replay of an earlier
disputed game in which Fred Merkle
of the New York Giants failed to
touch second base against the Chi-
cago Cubs. This would be the first
time the league rules calling for a
three-game play-off would have to
be used. '
Rain tomorrow would send the
whole situation into a horrible mess.
Scattered thundershowers have been
predicted for the St. Louis area.
Eddie Dyer named George (Red)
Munger to take the hill in the payoff
game of the campaign against Lefty
Johnny Schmnitz whose infected foot
has recovered sufficiently for him; to
take one last turn. Munger has won
two and lost one, and one of his vic-
tories was scored over Chicago. Of
Schmitz' 10 victories, thre have
been at the Birds' expense.

was forced to kick. Gene Derricotte
returned Dewar's boot four yards to
the Hoosier 46 and Michigan was off.
Wolverines Move Quickly
Derricotte reeled off seven yards
and Jack Weisenberger found a big
hole for another 14 and a first down
on the Indiana 25. Weisenberger
picked up three and Derricotte
moved for four. With third down
Dericotte found another hole off
tackle and made it another first down
on the Hoosier 13. Two plays had
yielded a three-yard loss when Der-
ricotte flipped a pass to Paul White
for the first Maize and Blue score.
"Automatic Jim" Brieske converted
and Michigan led, 7-0.
Indiana came back midway in the
second period to stage its biggest
threat of the day. Starting on their
own 25, the invaders struck through
the air to move to the Michigan 10
before the Wolverine line broke up
the Indiana bid. Pihos pitched to
Cowan for a first down on the Hoos-
ier 36. Two aerial thrusts by Young,
the first to Lou Mihajlovich and the
second to Abe Adams, carried the
Hoosiers to Michigan's 19.
Hoosiers Threaten
Raimondi returned and immed-
iately hit Mihajlovich on the Wolver-
ine 10. A holding penalty set the
Hoosiers back to the 24 but interfer-
ence was ruled against the Wolver-
ines on another Raimondi toss and
the Indianans once again were
perched on the Wolverine 10. Ad-
ams dropped another pass and two
receivers got tangled up to rob Rai-
mondi -of another completion.
Pihos fumbled but recovered on
the 13 and Ford broke through to
trip Cowan way back on the Michi-
gan 27 to end the Hoosier threat.
One of the key plays of the after-
noon was pulled by Michigan's big
roving center, J. T. White, when he
batted down a pass being juggled by
two crimson-clad receivers in -the
end zone during the Hoosiers' scor-
ing bid.
Not until the final stanza did the
Wolverines ice the game. Ford cov-
ered a fumble by Rex Grossman at
the close of the third period to give
Michigan a golden opportunity on
the Indiana 19. Weisenburger made
a yard 'and then Pete Elliott lifted
a high pass which Ford plucked out
of the air with one hand in the end

cuted reverse. Derricotte broke for
the right sideline and gallopped a-
cross for the third Wolverine score
whileMichigan blockers mowed down
every Hoosier in sight to clear his
path. Not an Indiana man touched
the fleet Wolverine halfback on his
53-yard jaunt. Brieske made it three
conversions for the day and Michigan
had its 21-0 score.
Statistically, the Maize and Blue
weren't as impressive as the score

From the looks on the coaches'
faces, it was difficult to tell just
which team lost the game yesterday.
Fritz Crisler was his normal somber
self, while Bo McMillin, usually smil-
ing in defeat or victory, was sad.
"There's no comparing this year's
Michigan team with the '45 squad-
this outfit is a vast improvement over
what Fritz had last year," Bo de-
clared, glumly.
Julius Franks former Wolverine
All-American guard had a concise
explanation of why the Maize and
Blue didn't score twice in the first
half. "When you don't have the ball,
it's pretty hard to get a touchdown.
Michigan held the ball in the sec-
ond period for all of 3%/2 minutes.
* * *
There was, and probably still is a
great deal of argument as to whether
or not switching Bruce Hilkene from
endto tackle this season was a -wise
move. After yesterday's game, it
seems apparentbthat Hilkene will be
around quite a bit this year playing
a lot of tackle. When Hiilkene didn't

Fourth Period
Badger Rally

BERKELEY, Calif., Sept. 28 - VP)
-The University of Wisconsin un-
leashed a potent attack in the final
period today, pushing across three
touchdowns, to trounce the University
of California Bears 28 to 7 before a
shirtsleeved crowd estimated at close
to 50,000.
The Badgers, strong favorites at
the kickoff, scored in the opening
quarter; outplayed the Bears in the
second period but the count tied by
California in the third.
Although clearly the superior team,
the Big Nine Conference visitor was
on even scoreboard terms as the game
swung into the final period. Jack Jen-
sen, sub California left half, took a
punt and raced 56 yards for a touch-
down and the successful conversion
gave the Bears a 7-7 knot midway of
the third.

Brieske stayed in to kick-off and
his boot bounded into the end zone
where it was grounded by Indiana
