ITHACA-A LETDOWN which Bennie Oosterbaan had cautioned
against all week hit the Maize and Blue here yesterday.
Michigan, after absorbing a heart-breaking 7-0 loss at Illinois last
Saturday, looked far from the team which had won three straight in
mid-season and had given the highly rated Illinois such a battle.
The statistics tell part of the story-although not all. The Wol-
verines fumbled five times. Two of these they lost.
Cornell intercepted four Michigan passes. Three of these were
instrumental in the scoring of the three touchdowns which spelled
defeat for Michigan.
Michigan was futile in its ground efforts. The Wolverines picked
up only 39 yards by rushing, with several losses sustained on pass at-
tempts.
Line Play Weak
BACKFIELD PLAY WAS SPOTTY at best. But line play was per-
haps the key reason for the loss. The Michigan forward wall,
great against Illinois, was lifeless against Cornell. Bill Putich, a game
tailback and leader, was constantly rushed on pass attempts.
And the five interceptions were a result of this lack of protection,
in part at least.
The Cornell campus the night before the game was generally
stoical about yesterday's contest. Most of the Big Red fans ex-
pected Michigan to take the school above Cayuga by two or three
touchdowns. Michigan fans who came down for the game were
stunned by the defeat. The Big Red just didn't look that good.
The small size of the Schoelkopf Field stands made the crowd an
overflow one. Temporary bleachers held part of the crowd of 35,300.
But what it lacked in size, the Cornell crowd made up in spirit.
And that spirit seemed to flow into the fingertips of Jackie Jaeckel,
the fine young Cornell quarterback who guided the Big Red to its
first two touchdowns. Jaeckel andhis teammates were fired up for
the clash.
Wolverines Practice in Snow
THE WOLVERINES have been working out in snow all week long.
They haven't had a chance to repolish the single-wing offensive
which was present in only its barest essentials on the slippery turf at
Champaign last weekend.
As a result, Cornell had the edge insofar as practices are con-
cerned. There hasn't been nearly as much snow here in the past
week, and what there was had melted by Wednesday.
Perhaps we should make that few teams just two-Michigan State
was the other one. At any rate, the Big Red threw so many rocks at
the Maize and Blue that some Michigan fans were afraid they were
robbing the high schools round these parts.
* * * *
Jaeckel Red Standout
OTHER THAN JAECKEL, no one man stood out for the Big Red,
though it was Whelan's punts that staved off all Wolverine scor-
ing thrusts save one in the first half. Names like Merz, Seidenberg,
Hull, Scazzero, Engel, and for a few seconds, Calvo, drifted in and out
and every one of them seemed able to handle whatever assignment
came his way.
Putich was far from his usual self at the tailback spot. Although
he ran well, the hard-working senior seemed to have suddenly de-
veloped a case of the jitters. He fumbled twice and his passes were
not as sharp as he's capable of.
Michigan now faces its last two conference games with a stern
necessity on its mind. It must win both these contests if the great
record of winning seasons, which extends back to the beginning of
Fritz Crisler's reign in 1938, is to be continued. With four losses al-
ready on the record, the Wolverines need both the Northwestern and
Ohio State games to finish with a winning percentage.

other Jaeckel pass applied the
coup de grace.
With the ball resting on the
Michigan 39, the cool-headed quar-
terback flipped a fluttery ball to
Stu Merz on the identical playj
which scored the first marker for
the Big Red. Merz cut across the
middle, took the ball on the 20,
and outsped the Michigan secon-
dary to reach paydirt.
-~ * *
MICHIGAN'S attempt to get
back in the ball game was foiled
immediately by another intercept-
ed pass. This time John Dorrance,
Cornell defensive halfback, took
Putich's short pass intended for
Tom Witherspoon, and the Big
Red had the ball on the Michigan
39-yard line.
The two teams exchanged
punts in the opening minutes of
the fourth quarter and desper-
ate Wolverine attempts through
I the air produced no dent in the
Cornell defense.
For the third time, a Wolverine
lapse set up the Big Red's scorig
thrust. Putich, who was rushed
continually by the hard-charging
Cornell line, threw a flat pass to
Stanford on the Michigan 20.
Stanford wasn't there but Mar-
chant was, and the fleet-footed
safety man went all the way to the
one-yard line before being tackled,

of Perry through the air, the Big
Red could scatter their pass de-
fenders and the quick charge of the
Big Red line took care of matters
the rest of the way.
The loss gives Michigan a four-
lost and three-won record for the
year. It was the 12th time the
Cornell team has beaten the Wol-
verines, as against five Michigan
wins.
The Big Red have now won five
and lost two.

yesterday against the Wolverines, while Duncan McDonald, Mich-

fourth period aerials for the Maize and Blue' losing effort.

LOS ANGELES-(!P)-Stanford's
Indians, set aflame by a scoring
96-yard touchdown run by full-
back Bob Mathias of Olympic de-
cathlon fame, came from behind
in the final minutes yesterday to
defeat Southern California, 27-20.
The victory gave Stanford the
inside track to the Rose Bowl.
Trailing 14-7 as the final quar-
ter began to unfold before a roar-
ing crowd of 96,130, the handsome
Stanford star took a kickoff in
front of his own goal posts on the
four yard line and, racing to the
right, sped all the way.
The flaming Stanfords, a ter-
rific troupe of T-stylists, sudden-
ly struck again. Linebacker Skip
Crist intercepted an SC desper-
ation pass by Frank Gifford, and
raced back 29 yards to the Tro-
jan 12.
Mathias got two, Kerkorian
passed to Wes Laubscher for three,
but an offside put the Indians back
to the 12. Halfback Harry Huga-
sian more than made this up with
one lunge to the one-yard mark.
He then added the yard-and the
winning points, as the clock began
to run out.
ILLINOIS 44, IOWA 13
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Sophomore
quarterback Tommy O'Connell
whizzed three first-half scoring
passes to end Joe Vernasco as un-
beaten Illinois, the nation's num-'
ber two team, chomped Iowa, 40
to 13, to vastly strengthen its Big
Ten title and Rose Bowl chances
yesterday.
Ranked second only to Tennes-
see in the Associated Press nation-
al rankings, Illinois not only un-
corked the brilliant O'Connell-to-
Vernasco passing combination, but
hurled a rocking defense at Hawk-
eye fullback Bill Reichardt.
MINNESOTA 16, INDIANA 14
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota

added a new chapter to its football
repertoire yesterday by defeating
Indiana, 16 to 14, for its first Big
Ten victory of the season.
A safety was the margin of vic-
tory.
As usual, the Gophers displayed
a powerful ground and aerial of-
fense during the first half to build
up an apparently safe lead.
PURDUE 35, NU 14
EVANSTON, Ill.-Guided by lit-
tle Dale Samuels' two long touch-
down passes and excellent general-
ship, Purdue smashed Northwest-
ern 35-14 yesterday in a surpris-
ing upset that boosted the improv-
ed Boilermakers into fourth place
in the Big Ten race.
It was the Boilermakers second
league victory in three starts, their
first over Northwestern since 1944,
and it kept them mathematically
in line for a possible title share
and Rose Bowl bid.
BOWL BOUND
ATLANTA-Unbeaten but once-
tied Georgia Tech rolled over Vir-
ginia Military Institute, 34-7, yes-
terday on the accurate passing of
Darrell Crawford and immediately
landed in the Orange Bowl.
Less than a half hour after the
game, officials of the Miami, Fla.,
post-season game announced that
Tech already has been/signed and
sealed for the Jan. 1 date. It will
mark Tech's fourth appearance in
the Orange Bowl.
