THE UNPREDICTA BLE!

Indiana, Wildcats Pull Upsets)

Hoosiers Stop
Purdue, 16-14
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Nov. 22
--(P)-Indiana University's foot-
ball Hoosiers convincingly defeat-
ed the Purdue Boilermakers today,
16 to 14, in as nerve-twisting a
game as any in the 1891-born se-
ries.
It was an upset on the basis of
season records, but there tradi-
tionally is no favorite in the intra-
state battle for the old oaken
bucket.
It was the first time in the
schools' 50 games that Indianal
had won four straight victories,
and only a substantial workipg
nargin enabled the Hoosiers tol
utlast a smashing Purdue rally
n the final quarter.
loosiers Revitalized
Rankling from three defeats this
season, Indiana's hopped-up play-
ers gave Purdue a thorough go-
ing over in the first half and then
pushed over two touchdowns in
the third quarter. Quarterback
Rex Grossman kicked a field goal
for good measure at the start of
the final period.
Finally Click
Midway in the last quarter, Pur-
due finally began looking like the
team that beat Illinois and grap--
pled its way to two quick touch-
downs. Grossman's 20-yard field
goal turned out to be just enough
cushion to save the Hoosiers, and
they put their 10th link on the old
oaken bucket chain.

Brownies Get
Priddy in Deal
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22-(P)-
The Washington Senators today
traded second baseman Perry
Priddy and "a lot of cash" to the
St. Louis Browns for second base-
man John Berardino .
President Clark Griffith of the
Senators declined to say how much
cash went to the Browns other
than it was "a lot."

Scrappy Cougars
SEATTLE, Nov. 22-(AP)-Little
Brooks Biddle skirted the ends and

versity of Washington to a 20 to 0
football victory today over a
scrappy band of Washington State
College Cougars in the season's
final game for both teams.

Rally Topples
Illinois 2 8-13
Northwestern, saving its best per-
formance until the last game, to-
day closed out its Big Nine football
season by vacating the cellar posi-
tion with a stunning 28 to 13 tri-
umph over highly-favored Illinois.
The surprising Wildcats, highly
pitched after holding mighty Not-
re Dame to a 26-19 win a week ago,
scored twice in the second period
and racked another pair of touch-
downs in the fourth to overcome
6 to 0 and 13 to 7 lead Illinois pro-
duced.
A "Dad's Day" throng of 52,158
turned out in freezing temperature
to watch their Illini bid for run-
ner-up spot in the Big Nine title
race. But after Illinois marched
64 yards for its first marker in the
opening period and then spirung
Paul Patterson around end for a
25-yard scoring sprint midway in
the second, there was nothing left
for the home partisans to cheer
about.
Russ Steger, tearing off gains
alongsthe ground and picking up
14 yards on a pass from Perry
Moss, touched off the first Illin-
ois touchdown by crashing around
end from the two.
Northwestern's Don Burson, out-
classing Moss in the air, hit Ed
Tunnicliff for 25 yards, then Stan
Gorski for 20 as the Wildcats
moved to the 8. At the outset of
the second quarter, Burson fired a
five-yard touchdown to Gorski and
Jim Farrar booted his first of
four extra points.
Following Patterson's cut-back
scoring run for Illinois, second
string halfback Loran Day put
Northwestern ahead, 14-13 at half
time with a 68 yard runback of
Moss' pass.
In the third period, Burson toss-
ed 41 yards to end Ken Wiltgen
but the touchdown was nullified
on a Northwestern offside infrac-
tion.
Frank Aschenbrenner was the
Wildcats' demon in an 80-yard
march in the fourth period. He and
Gasper Perricone herded North-
western to the one line from where
Farrar eventually squirmed over
on fourth down
Minutes before the final gun,
Aschenbrenner streaked 43 yards
to the 10. On the next play he
fumbled and Illinois recovered but
the Illini bobbled in turn and Bur-
son captured the ball onthe 14. It
took seven plays for Northwestern
to punch across, Aschenbrenner
succeeding with a one yard buck.
The triumph was Northwestern's
second in Conference competi-
tion and its third in a total of nine
games this season.

Chappuis Runs, Passes
For 307 Yards in Finale
(Continued from Page 1)
It took the Wolverines eight plays to march for their final
tally. A break set it up. When Bump Elliott tried to make a shoestring
catch on a punt from Ohio's Pete Perini, he fumbled the ball toward
the Buckeye goal and Dom Tomasi recovered for Michigan on the
State 34.
A holding penalty on the first play set the Wolverines back to
the 47, but that was the last delay. Chappuis hit end Ed McNeil with
a 12 yard pass. Two plays later he faded again, sidestepped one Buck-
eye and ripped off his own weak side to the 23.

Notes on Game
Mike Cannavino, the smallest
man on the Buckeye roster, was
their most effective running back
accounting for 57 yards in ten
tries. He also sparkled on pass de-
fense and was one big reason that
the Wolverines, for the only time
this season, failed to score at least
once from beyond the fifty yard
line.
The other Buckeye star was an
end, 190-pound Jameson Crane,
who did heavy duty on defense.
As usual Crisler's specialists
specialized. Gene Derricotte, may
be the nation's finest safety man
was just that. Three times he in-

COACH AND CAPTAIN -
"Fritz" Crisler and Bruce Hil-
kene were at the helm of the
mighty Wolverine aggregation
that crushed all opposition for
the first unblemished season
since 1933 and an assured berth
in the annual New Year's Day
classic at the Rose Bowl.
Michigan, and that was the clos-
est the Bucks came all afternoon.
Bob Mann, another specialist,
contributed a circus catch down
on the four yard line to set up the
first score. Completely out of posi-
tion as Chappuis' pass went to his
wrong side, Mann whirled and fell,
catching the toss on the way down.
That was the story, not only of
the game but of the season. Michi-
gan had too many weapons.
