By DICK HURST
Michigan's jayvees combined
two brilliant first period scoring
thrusts with the stalwart play of
a hard charging line to halt
Northwestern's 'B' team 13-0 on
Ferry Field yesterday morning.
The game was only minutes old
when the Wolverine3 chalked up
their first touchdown. A quick
kick by Bill Jennings stopped dead
on the 7 yard line to put ;he
Wildcats in the hole. Ralph Rossi
broke through a huge hole, went
to the 9 and then lost the ball as
he was tackled. Michigan's Leo
Flynn pounced on the ball.
IN FOUR PLAYS the Wolver-
ines scored. Two rushes picked up
seven yards, a third down pass was
incomplete, then on fourth down
Irv Small dropped back and tossed
a honey that went for a touch-
down.
It was a screen pass to the left
side of the line with Norm Jack-
on on the receiving end. Jack-
son grabbed the ball, ran to the
ten behind fine blocking then
cut to the center past the last
defenders and into the end zone
for the score.
Hal Ping converted and the
score was 7-0. Three minutes
later the Wolverines scored again.
THE WILDCATS picked up a
quick first down after the ki-k.-
off then on the third down of the
next series a jump pass was funi -
bled and Chuck Cerecke recov-
ered on the Northwestern twenty
yard line.
Jennings romped for nine
yards down to the eleven from a
well-executed reverse. On the
next play, Jim Mo-rish scooted
over tackle, slithered through
the secondary and went into th-
end zone standing up.
The try for the extra point wis
blocked and with the first quarter
still incomplete the Wolverines
led 13-0. That was the end of
the scoring, each team stalling just
when they were getting in touch-
down territory.
* * *
FOR THE LAST three periodts,

it was a line battle with the de-
fensive work of each team stop-
ping any possibility of a sus-
tained drive in its infancy. Al-
though the Wildcats picked up
eleven first downs to Michigan s;
five, most of their energy was ex-
pended in mid-field.
Although the Wolverine at-
tack lacked consistent precision.
Coach Don Robinsoi fielded a
group of hard running backs
that broke through for fine runs
throughout the game.
Irv Small did an excellent job at
quarter tossing some fine passes
and setting up scores with shrewd
signal calling. Jim Morrish and
Bill Jennings, a couple of light
swivel-hipped backs, scampered
for several beautiful runs during
the game.
Norm Jackson too care of the
full-backc duties and the ew in some
topnotch defensive work besides.
The entire line played terrific ball;
Eizonas, Flynn, Sutherland,
Powers, Gomberg and Co. all hit-
ting hard to stop the Wildcats'
"T" attack.

KICKED LIKE A MULE-Show-
ing signs of a truly great punt-
er, Wally Teninga booted the
ball for an average of 42.4 yards
in yesterday's game.

!Yale Upsets Wisconsi 17-7;
'Indiana Bows to O.S.U 17-0

(By The Associated Press)
In the last minutes of a game
that had been fought out virtually
in midfield the slightly tarnished
Golden Gophers of Minnesota
came to life and scored to defeat
Illinois, 6-0.
A long pass from left helfback
Dick Lawrence to end Vern Gagne
was good for 51 yards to the Illini
22-yard line. Fullback Frank
Kuzma picked up 21 yards on four
tries to put the ball on the one
yard line with a first down. Quar-
terback Jim Malosky sneaked
across for the score and the vic-
tory.
BEFORE A 47,000 homecoming
crowd at Iowa, Purdue finally won
its first game of the season, 20-13.

U

The Boilermakers, working
against the breaks, scored first
in the final 35 seconds of the
second quarter, added another
midway in the third period on
Harry Szulborski's nine-yard
dash, and then clinched the
game in the fourth stanza on
Bob DeMoss' punch from the
one-foot mark.
Iowa scored on the second play
of the fourth period on Ralph
Doran's smash from the one-ya rd
line and then pulled up to 13-20
in the closing seconds when Al
Dimarco tossed to Bob McKenzie
for a 48-yard gain to the one, and
Mead e Naber scored on the nex .
play.
A SPIRITED, underdog Yale
team spotted Wisconsin a touch-
down and then swept to a 17-7
victory. With the exception of a
first period drive that brought the
Badgers a score, they were out-
fought and outcharged by the
lighter Bulldogs.
Wisconsin scored on a 42 yard
gallop by Clarence Self before
the game was three minutes old,
but from there on its scoring at-
tempts were futile. Levi Jackson
and Ferd Nadherny tallied for
Yale, and William Booe kicked
a field goal and two extra points.
Ohio State's Buckeyes out-
classed Indiana completely to take
a, 17-0 victory at Bloomington
Alex Verdova, Joe Whistler, and
Jim Cark ground out long gains,
and Quarterback Pandel Savic
mixed in a few passes as Indiana
only once got inside the Buckeye
45.-yard line.

(Continued from Page 1)
with a booming punt that Aschen-
brenner caught on the four; Dick
Rifenburg got there at the same
time and Mr. Aschenbrenner
didn't move.
THE VERSATILE Aschenbren-
ner was forced to kick out of this
hole and Teninga returned the
punt to the Wildcat 32, aided by a
nice block on the part of Brick
Wahl.
Koceski broke loose for 12
yards and Peterson picked up
five more through center. Then
Ortmann twisted his way to the
7 yard stripe.
Koceski carried on a reserve to
the two and after Peterson got one
yard, the Pennsylvania sophomore
took a reverse and scored unmo-
lested.
ALLIS' 'KICK was good and
Michigan led, 7-0.
Then the Wildcats put on
their best drive of the day. They
took the ball on their own 28
and moved all the way to the
Michigan 10 before they met a
stone wall.
With a first and ten on the
Michigan 18 the Wolverines put'
on a goal line stand that is be-
coming typical of them. Aschen-
brenner picked up six yards on
the first play of this series, but
then Don Burson was rushed and
got off a bad pass that Wisniewski
intercepted.
THE OFFICIALS nullified this
break as the pass was ruled in-
complete. Wahl and Kempthorn
stopped Murakowski on the 11 and
then with fourth and 3 Wistert
and Kempthorn smothered Asch-'
enbrenner to end the threat.
The Wolverines moved to their
own 31 where a comedy of errors
took place. Kempthorn fumbled
and Chuck Hagmann recovered
for the Wildcats.
Peewee Day fumbled on the
first play, but the Wildcats re-
covered. George Sundheim bulled
to the Michigan 16 and then Tom
Worthington fumbled, but recov-
ered all the - way back on the 30.
Michigan held and took over, and
the half ended with Michigan
holding a precarious lead.
* * 4
MICHIGAN threatened almost
immediately after the third quar-
ter started. Aschenbrenner kicked
to Koceski on the Michigan 40 and
the blond wingback lugged it to
the Northwestern 45.
Ortmann passed to Wisniewski
for 9 yards and then heaved one
to Koceski on the 23. Another
pass, this time to Elliott, moved
the Wolverines to the 18. Elliott
moved on the "T" to the 5, but
Day intercepted an Ortmann
pass in the end zone and the
threat was ended.
Michigan threatened a few mo-

ments later, but Koceski was
stopped inches short of a score
and Worthington punted out to
the Northwestern 35. Koceski re-
turned it to the 23 and the roof
began crumbling.
* * *
TENINGA HIT Elliott with a
pass that moved Michigan to the
11. And then came Teninga's
bullet pass to Koceski for the
second Wolverine score. Allis' kick
was good and the third quarter
ended.
Then all the roof caved in.
Michigan scored after Allis had
recovered the fumbled kickoff.
The key play was an Ortmann
to Koceski pass that bounced
into the air only to have Igo-
ceski snare it and dive into the
end zone for the third marker.
Three minutes later the Wol-
verines hit paydirt again. Wis-
niewski intercepted a Burson pass
on the Wildcat 30 and took the
ball to the 12. Teninga went
around end for 7 yards. But Ko-
ceski fumbled on the next play
and the ball spurted into the end
zone.
The ball acted like a greased pig
as it slithered out of hand after
hand, but Bob Erben, Wolverine
center. finally cornered it and be-
came the first lineman to score for
Michigan this year.
Allis booted his 10th placement
in twelve attempts and the ball
game was history.

Michigan's four touchdown vic-
tory over Northwestern provided
a day of contrasts in many re-
spects.
In the Michigan locker room
after the game, a usually undem-
onstrative Fritz Crisler couldn't
restrain himself. He threw his
arms around his old friend and
associate Benny Oosterbaan. A
smile as wide as the Mississippi
River showed Crisler's approval.
Across the way, the tomblike
atmosphere of ' the Northwest-
ern chambers stung reporters
coming in from the bustle of the
Wolverine clan. Coach Bob
Voigts swallowed hard before
answering each question.
He refused to make any alibis,
or complain about his boys' wore.
Instead, Voigts singled out Dan
Dworsky and Dick Kempthorn as
the day's outstanding defensive
players. These two- were largely
responsible for the vaunted North-
western attack rolling up only 47
yards on the ground.
Kempthorn blocked and tac-

McNeill if we had needed him,
but Wiz did a good job," the
Michigan mentor said.
THE OLD-TIME boot that gave
its name to "foot" ball figured
prominently for Michigan and
against Northwestern. In the se-
ries of punt exchanges leading up

to the first Michigan touchdown,
Wally Teninga picked up approxi-
mately forty yards for the Wol-
verines. Frank Aschenbrenner
toed to the Michigan 34 on the
first punt, and three boots later
the Wolverines received the ball on
the Northwestern 32 where the in-
itial TD drive was started.

Gil Stephenson, 183-pound soph-
omore halfback from Columbus,
Ga., scored three sparkling touch-
downs to lead unbeaten Army to
victory over Harvard, 20-7. Steph-
enson's first touchdown, in the
first period, was the longest run
of the game. Starting on Harvard's
41, the West Pointer cut over right
tackle and scampered all the way
to score.

Dick Lawrence, Verne Gagne,
and Frank Kuzma pooled talents
in the waning minutes of the Min-
nesota-Illinois battle to pull the
game out of the fire for the Goph-
ers. A 51-yard pass from Lawrence
to Gagne put the ball on the Illini
22. On three plays Kuzma lugged

Tires, springs and shock absorbers
take the beating, vibration and
grinding of unbalanced and mis-
aligned wheels. That is why most
drivers don't know when destruc-
tive wheel conditions are stealing
rubber and aging the car beyond
its mileage.
The SAFE, sure way is to have us
check wheels regularly. Then we
can detect and correct destructive
wheel conditions before serious
damage occurs.'

In direct contrast to the
"sluggish" Michigan defense
last year at Dyche Stadium, the
Maize and Blue linemen slashed
sharply through the Wildcat
front paws all day. Quent Sick-
