Alert Defensive Game Plays

Vital bole in



Wisconsin, Indiana Win;
Will Face Maize and Blue
Badgers and Hoosiers Loom as Strong
Barriers to Michigan Conference Hopes

EVANSTON, Ill., Nov. 1--()-
Wisconsin kept alive its chances
for at least a slice of the "Big
Nine" football championship today
by smothering offense lacking
Northwestern, 29 to 0, before 43,-
000 in Dyche Stadium.
Wisconsin's speedy Badgers
scored first in one minute and 20
seconds, three plays after recov-
ering a Northwestern fumble, and
from there on the result was never
in doubt.
In contrast Northwestern's
Wildcats were unable to penetrate
into Wisconsin's territory until
eleven minutes of the third period
had clicked off. First the Cats hit
the 35 yard line on a pass and
later recovered a Wisconsin fum-
ble on the 17, but were unable
to make any headway.
The Badgers, in their campaign,
have achieved two victories, hav-
ing previously defeated Purdue
and tying Indiana, 7 to 7. North-
western has won only one game
this season, a 27 to 26 upset over

bling, deadeye George Taliaferro,
struck suddenly in the first period
and then held off an embattled,
Ohio State eleven in the final half
before emerging with a 7 to 0 tri-
umph in today's Big Nine Confer-
ence battle of tail-end football
teams before 75,882 spectators.
Coach Wes Fesler's Buckeyes-
lacking victory since the season
opener with Missouri-rolled into,
threatening position three times
in the second half only to give
up the ball just when a touchdown
seemed imminent.
The Hoosiers went into a one-
touchdown favorite to dump Ohio
State into the Big Nine cellar, a
spot Indiana held before the kick-
off. When the tilt ended, Coach
Alvin N. (Bo) McMillin's "pore
little boys" were just one touch-
down better and little more.
It came with surprising sud-
denness following a cautious open-
ing when both teams felt out the
other, even to the extent of trad-
ing quick kicks for an advantage.
Taliaferro, 195-pounder, stood on
his own 24 yard line with about 2
minutes remaining in the period
and fired a looping pass that half-
back Mel Groomes pulled down
46 yards away. He scampered to
the Ohio 13 where he stumbled
trying to elude the twin Buckeye
C safetymen.'

Gophers Rout
Pitt Panthers
Minnesota Stages
Last Period Spree
Minnesota's Gophers waited until
the fourth quarter before unleash-
ing a scoring attack that netted
three touchdowns and a safety to
put together a 29 to 0 victory
over Pittsburgh in a non-Con-
ference football game today. A
crowd of 56,324 watched in 52
degree weather.
After scoring late in the first
period, the Gophers made hard
work of smothering Pittsburgh's
passing attempts and holding
them on the ground.
Only once, late in the second
period, did Pittsburgh threaten.
Halfbacks Louis Cecconi and
Carl DePasqua did some fancy
running after being unable to
find receivers for intended
passes, but the attack died when
DePasqua was caught behind
the line of scrimmage as the
period ended.
Besides counting three touch-
downs in the last period the
Gophers came within a foot
of another. It came shortly af-
ter quarterbackaJim Malosky
and end Marvin Hein combined
on a short jump pass to score as
the period opened.
The threat ended, however,
when an alert Pittsburgh de-
fense caught 'the ball carrier
before he could start.
The safety came on the next
play. Pitt fullback Paul Rickards
was caught in the end zone and
downed the ball without a
Gopher touching him.
Reserves scored the other two
final period touchdowns. Sub half-
back Ralph McAlister tumbled
over the goal line midway in the
period after plunging from the 14-
yard line. A plunge from the
three-yard line that ended with
sub halfback Frank Brown rolling
over the goal line ended the day's
Halfback Don Bailey kicked the
point after the three fourth pe-
riod scores, but his attempt after
the first period score was blocked.
Oregon State
Wins in Rain
From Stanford
PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 1-(EP)
-Orgeon State's Beavers handed
Stanford its sixth straight football
loss of the season today, 13 to 7,
before 15,000 fans huddled in in-
termittent rain.
Neither team showed a scoring
spark until late in the first period
when Stanford moved to the OSC
three yard line only to lose the
ball on downs. The Beaversdheld
off determined Stanford bids in
the second quarter and then
pushed over a score of their own.

Court Action
In A.L. Row
CHICAGO, Nov. 1--(P)-Gen-
eral Manager Leslie O'Connor of
the Chicago White Sox declared
today the club owners of the
American League were not "back-
ing" Commissioner A. B. (Happy)
Chandler when they voted unani-
mously yesterday to replace[
O'Connor on baseball's executive l
Meanwhile, O'Connor began
preparing a brief to be used to
seek his reinstatement by civil
courts in case such action is
deemed necessary and to prove
Chandler "exceeded his author-
ity" when he fined O'Connor and
the White Sox $500 for signing
George Zoetermnan, 18-year-old
Chicago high school student.
O'Connor said contents of the
brief, based on an extensive
study of civil and baseball law,
"might" be made public Tues-
day, following a meeting of
White Sox directors.
His replacement by the junior
league, the White Sox general
manager asserted, was "solely
in order that the league would
not lose one of its votes on the
executive council, and not be-
cause of any desire or intent to
uphold or back Chandler."
"I think every man at yester-
day's meeting feels that the com-
missioner exceeded his authority
in interpreting a rule that isn't
in the book. At least they said so."
He said such newspaper state-
ments as "American League up-
holds Chandler" and "owners
agree to back Chandler" were
"very inaccurate."
U.S. Shuts Out

PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 1-(/)-
America scored a grand slam over
Britain today in the opening of
the Ryder Cup Golf Series, rack-
ing up four points to none in
Scotch foursome matches ranging
from routs to sensational come-
The first day's test of the inter-
national golfing classic, revived
after a ten year's lapse, brought
U.S. Open Champion Lew Wor-
sham and Ed Oliver Hang a lop-
sided 10 to 9 win over Britain's
Captain, Henry Cotton, and his
partner, Arthur Lees.

Len Ford, speedy Wolverine end,
sparked the brilliant Michigan
defensive action against a per-
sistent Illini eleven.

(ConnIed from Page 1)
a drive had brought the ball in-
side the Michigan 30, Bump Elliott
speared a Perry Moss pass on the
8-yard line. On the next play Jack
Weisenburger cut loose for 32
yards and that threat was ended.
A desperation passing drive in
the dying minutes of the game
faded when Bump Elliott inter-
cepted another Moss pass to make
it official.
The lone Illinois touchdown.
came after a 53 yard run by
Stager had set it up. He broke
over his own right guard, cut
into the clear and hightailed it
to the Michigan 15 where Pete
Elliott hauled him down from
behind. A Moss to Du fflmeier
pass was good for nine yards. A
Michigan offside took it to the
one and Steger dived over. Don
Maechtle converted.
Michigan's best punter, J. Weis-
enburger, suffering from a slight
injury was relieved of his kicking
chores by Wally Teninga and
Chappuis. Teninga came through
with an against the wind boot in
the clutch to stave off the late
passing rush of Moss. Booting
from his own 26, he drove a low
punt down to the Illinois 25,
where Eddleman, taking the ball
on a reverse from Maggioli, was
cut down by Rifenburg to keep the
Illini at bay.
It was the running attack of
the Wolverines which kept them
out of their own, back yard.
Time and again on short line
jabs, with Chappuis doing work-
horse duty, Michigan drove up
over midfield. But this was not
the Wolverines high scoring day.
Once it was a fumble on the Il-
lini 14, again a beautiful Chappis
to Bob Mann pass, good on the
Illini 22 yard line, that were nulli-

Another fumble and an Illini pass
interception nipped other drives in
the bud.
The much heralded Moss-
Chappuis passing duel was pret-
ty nearly a draw, But Michigan
didn't take to the airways very
frequently. Moss tried 19 tosses
and made good on eight, but
most of them were short screen
passes. Chappuis had two com-
pleted passes nullified. He pitch-
ed seven and three were good
for 73 yards as against 70 yards
for Moss.
Fonde had the best running av-
erage with six yards for three
carries. Steger and Weisenburger
were next, with 5.7 and 5.0 aver-
ages. Two long-losses dropped
Chappuis' average to 3.5, but
Bump Elliott and Gene Derricotte
each picked up 4.4 per try.

DALLAS, Tex., Nov. 1-0P)-Magniflcent Doak Walker passed,
ran and kicked Southern Methodist to a 14-13 victory over Texas today

schoolboy pal of yesterday in the heralded individual battle of stars.
But even in defeat, Layne Texas' passin' man, was a glittering stand-
out of a battle that had a crowd of 45,000 in a continuous uproar.

-Coach Earl (Red) Blaik of Army
threw 48 players-more than four
full teams-into a mission of mer-
cy today, but when the carnage
finally ended his black-clad Cad-
