COLUMBUS-Wisconsin's gam-
bling Badgers slowed Ohio State's
vaunted offense down to a walk
yesterday, but the brilliant Bucks
pulled out a 19-14 victory before
81,535 fans to practically clinch
the Western Conference cham-
pionship.
A victory over either Illinois or
Michigan in remaining games
would give the undisputed title to
Ohio State.
* * *
THE UNDERDOG Badgers gam-
bled twice today, lost both times,
and the gambles cost them the
contest. The first gamble came in
the third period with Wisconsin
leading 7-6. The Badgers stopped
a 52-yard Ohio drive on the one-
foot line, taking the ball on downs,
and tried two plunges at the line,
which failed togain an inch.
Each time the ball carrier was
almost nabbed in the end zone
for a safety. The Badgers gam-
bled on a quick kick on third
down, the ball going out of
bounds on Wisconsin's 28. Walt
Klevay plunged for six and then
Tony Curcillo, Ohio quarterback,
hit end Tom Watson on the goal
line with a 22-yard touchdown4
pass.j
Zarly in the fourth session, Wis-
consin gambled again, trying to
make half a yard on fourth down
on its own 22-yard line. The play
missed by inches. Ohio took over
and moved 22 yards in five plays
with halfback Vic Janowicz skirt-
.ing right end for the touchdown
which won the contest.

Mini - Iowa
Illinois fanned its Rose Bowl
scents yesterday at Iowa City with
a 21-7 victory over a stubborn Iowa
football team that refused to fold
after giving up three first quarter
touchdowns.
Illinois, however, still faces the
tremendous task of stopping Ohio
State and Northwestern if the Il-
lini are to be sure of a trip to
Pasadena for the Jan. 1 bowl fes-
tivities.
The Illini, exceptionally fast and
fronted with a sharp-charging line,
struck with devastating fury at the
start. They racked up three touch-
downs in 9% minutes and the chil-
ly Dad's Day crowd of 45,104 fans
nursed thoughts of a rout similar'
to Ohio State's 83-21 rip-up of
Iowa.
Al Brosky; a sophomore,
touched off the Illinois scoring
on a sizzling 61-yard punt re-
turn as he swept to his right,
then balanced himself along the
eastern sideline.
Next came a 32-yard run by Dick
Raklovits after taking a flat pass
from Fred Major. Speedy, husky
Dick was escorted by two blockers
along his touchdown dash.
An Iowa fumble had set up the
second Illinois touchdown and the
Iowa prospects were anything but
bright. They were worse a few min-
utes later.
Raklovits cracked right through
Iowa prspects were anything but
the Iowa secondary like a fast
freight. He covered 60 yards on his
journey. Sam Rebecca made his

third straight conversion and it
was Illinois 21-0.
* * *
NU - Purdue
Quarterback Dick Flowers pass-
ed and ran Northwestern's Wild-
cats to a 19-14 victory over Pur-
due yesterday at Lafayette, and
end Don Stonesifer came out of
the game with a new Western Con-
ference record for pass receiving.
Stonesifer caught four of Flo-
wers' tosses for a season's record
of 24 that rubbed out the mark of
21 caught last year by Indiana's
Clifton Anderson.
Flowers ran over two of North-
western's touchdowns after putting
the Wildcats in scoring position
with long passes. He passed to
Dick Alban for the other.
It was the fifth straight defeat
for Purdue since it ended Notre
Dame's long victory march. North-
western came out of a two-game
slump yesterday.
Purdue, with a 23 to 18 margin
on first downs, was still in the
game after Northwestern's Bob
Burson missed a field goal attempt
from the seven-yard line late in
the final period.
Chuck Bennett intercepted a
pass by sophomore Dale Samuels
to halt Purdue's final drive on
the Northwestern 33.
Long drives that petered out
were the Purdue story all after-
noon. It powered 64 yards after
taking the opening kickoff only
to lose the ball on downs at' the
Northwestern 7.
Purdue reached the Northwest-
ern 13 in the second quarter and
the defenders' Wally Jones hauled
down another Samuels' pass.

Spartans - Gophers
Michigan State's smoothworking
Spartans tripped, tossed, and
twirled their way to a solid 27-0
football victory at East Lansing
yesterday over a stubborn Minne-
sota eleven.
The Spartans, playing their last
home game of the year before a
near capacity crowd of 47,461 fans
scored in everyNiuarter. Four
backs, led by the sensational Son-
ny Grandelius, divided the honors.
Although the Gophers' linemen
outweighed the Spartans by as
much as 20 pounds per maia, they
never could produce a real scoring
threat. Their own backs were
snagged repeatedly by the faster
Michigan State line, paced by
tackle Deane Thomas.

(uonunuea xrom Page i)

their only touchdown. The action
began on the Indiana 35, where
Gene Gedman was stopped after
returning Allis' kickoff from the
Hoosier 20.
COUNTING five of their nine
first-downs enroute, the visitors
executed a combination of 11 run-
ning and pass plays in covering
the 65 yards. The tally was set
up by a 42-yard pass, D'Achille-
to-Gedman, which gave Indiana a
first-down on the Michigan 26.
The score came after the Hoosiers
moved effectively through either
side of the Michigan line, finally
scoring on a four yard off-tackle
drive by halfback Bobby Robert-
son.
D'Achille's conversion split the
uprights, and the day's scoring
ended with Indiana on the short
side of the 20-7 tally.
Except for a last minute inter-
ception in the first half, Indiana
entered Michigan territory only
once. The Hoosiers capitalized on
the slackened Wolverine defense
in the third period to register
their lone touchdown. In prevent-
ing Indiana from penetrating in-
to their territory for 32 minutes
of playing time, the Wolverines
held their opponents to 116 yards
on the ground and a meager 75
in the air.
s :
THE VICTORS also attempted
two field goals, one from the 11 in'
the first period, and another from
e the 14 in the final quarter. Pen-

HOOSIER HOTSHOT-Indiana's D'Achille on the way to one of his team's longest gains of the
afternoon. On a quarterback sneak in the first period, D'Achille goes for substantial yardage, evad-
ing tackles by both Harry Allis and Don Dufek. Runs like this were the exception rather than the
rule, since the whole Indiana tea monly netted 116 yards on the ground. In contrast, Michigan
managed to pile up 317 yards by rushing.

LEAGUE BALLROOM

By BILL BRENTON
Associate Sports Editor
Yesterday's rival coaches, Ben-
nie Oosterbaan of Michigan and
Clyde Smith of Indiana, had dif-
ferent opinions at 2 p.m. yester-
day of what the final score of their
game would be.
But at 4:30 they agreed on twoI
features of the clash-that their
charges played better ball yester-
day than on the previous Satur-
day. And that Wes Bradford, the
sophomore from Troy, Ohio, had
come into his own.
CITING THE Wolverines' im-
provement over the last two weeks,
Oosterbaan singled out "spirit"
and "better blocking" as the fac-

tors that made a 20-7 win over
Indiana possible. "The boys play-
ed a hard, fighting game," he add-
ed.
Outside the Indiana dressing
room, the mild-mannered Smith
lauded his charges for turning
in a better game than against
Michigan State. "We made mis-
takes, but Michigan has a nice
football team."
Oosterbaan paid particular tri-
bute to tiny Wes Bradford. "He
did a swell job," Michigan's coach
commented, "-just sticks his chin
out and plays football." Smith
added his "Amen!" to Oosterbaan's
plaudits.

Hiding in a corner of the Wol-
verine dressing room, the diminu-
tive wingback who electrified fans
with several long runs including a
41-yard scamper for a touchdown
shyly gave his version of a suc-
cessful afternoon. "It was just lik
in practice," was his comment.
4. * * *
BRADFORD, who weighs only
150 pounds, soaking wet, played
both left and right halfback in
the Troy High School T-formatior
and single wing attack. He tallied
eight touchdowns in his senior
year although shelved for a month
with bad ankles.
Both teams came out of the
contest in good physical shape.
Michigan tackle John Hess left
the game in the third period
when he aggravated an old ankle
injury and Don Oldham rehurt
a leg but Dr. Alfred Coxon as-
sured that the remainder of the
team was in good shape, except
for the usual "kicks and such."

of his blocking on Dufek's tpuch-
down jaunt. He dropped Indi-
ana's linebacker Bob Stebbins,
all 210 pounds of him, dead in
position on the key block that
sent the Michigan fullback off
on the 54-yard journey.
The sophomore speedster from
Troy, Ohio ran with significant
deceptiveness on the weak side
reverses, previously a specialty of
Koceski who has been out of ac-
tion since the Army game a month
ago.
Another soph, end Lowell Per-
ry, also turned in a praiseworthy
performance. Catching four pass-
es for 68 yards and providing a
key interception in the last quar-
ter, the Ypsilanti youth -displayed
poise seldom found even in third-
year men. Late in the first half
he speared an Ortmann pass that
traveled 34 yards from scrimmage,
although two Indiana backs were
apparently in ,control of the situ-
ation.
THE THREE six-footers left
their feet simultaneously on the
play, but Perry out-reached the
white-shirted defenders and came
down with the ball on the Indiana
25. Michigan had time for only
one play thereafter, and the half
ended with the Wolverines ahead,
13-0.
Late in the first quarter, Ort-
mann retired to the sidelines
after being on the receiving end
of a crushing tackle and Putich
was shifted to the tailback slot.
Sophomore Ted Toper came in
at quarterback, but Putich con-
tinued with his duty of calling
the plays.
Putich ran effectively from the
spot that Ortmann has occupied
for three years, picking up a first
down on a pitchout from Toper
and going for five more through
tackle on a direct pass.
Offensively, Indiana mixed for-
mations, employing at times the
straight-T, varying it with split-
and winged-T lineups. Michigan
stayed with single- and double-
wing plays, using variations of the
T only on the touchdown run by
Dufek, two passes by Putich and
a repeat of the fullback drive,
with Ralph Straffon carrying, late
in the fourth quarter.
Unusually effective was the
spread-punt formation used by
the Hoosiers. The fast charging
line, coupled with Robertson's
eight high punts which averaged
44.6 yards, held the Wolverines to
34 yards on six returns.

Indiana escaped injury although
their ace, Bobby Robertson, limped
off the field in the final quarter.
He cane back minutes later to
boom one of the longest kicks in
] Western Conference history, 70
yards in the air, 90 ards in all,
and 71 yards fro the line of1
scrimmage.

Well-earned praise from coach-
es and fans alike was heaped on
the shoulders of the five-foot, five-
inch Bradford for both his shifty
running and effective blocking.
With amazing success he matched
his 155 pounds with the 200-plus
carried by opposing line men, both
in protecting Chuck Ortmann on
passes and in aiding on running
plays.
Notable was the effectiveness

SOUTH BEND -VP)- Quarter-
back Bob Williams clicked off two
all-time Notre Dame passing rec-
ords yesterday in hurling the Irish
to a win over Pittsburgh's pent-up
Panthers, 18-7.
Bustling Bob, playing all but two
minutes of the game, took almost
personal charge in herding Notre
Dame to a two-game winning
streak, its longest of the season.
Nearly 57,000 teeth-chattering fans
huddled in 25 degree weather to
watch the Irish close their home

season and post a 4-3 won-lost
mark.
* * *
WILLIAMS pitched two touch-
down passes in the first half for
a 12-0 lead then hooked up in a
great aerial clash with Pitt's ef-
fective Bob Bestwick in the final
half.
In all, Williams completed 13 out
of 23 tosses for 162 yards. This
performance was sufficient to give
him a total of 172 connections in
330 attempts through 17 games of
his Irish career for a new school
record. Angelo Bertelli's record of
169. hits in 324 tries (made in 26
games) was shattered.
Notre Dame, spotting the Pan-
thers seven points in the third per-
iod, hogtied their triumph on an
81 yard surge at the outset of the
finale. Williams' passes, and also
his running which blossomed when
his receivers were coyered, welded
with Jack Landry's ball-carrying
to feature the jackpot drive.
