McNamara, shifted from right
halfback to fullback at the start
of the game to plug the Gophers'
injury-stricken fullback corps,
scored two touchdowns and con-
tributed decisively to a third.

BERNIE CRIMMINS doesn't kid about football. Last week after his
Hoosiers had dropped their fourth game of the season he freely
predicted that "Someday we're going to put together two good halves
of football, and when we do somebody is going to get hurt."
His conqueror of that day, Iowa's Forest Evashevski concurred
with the comment "I'd hate to be playing Indiana the day that
team jells."
As it turned out in Michigan Stadium yesterday Crimmins was
right, Evashevski was lucky, and Bennie Oosterbaan's Wolverines
got hurt.
In the locker room after the game Oosterbaan was quick to praise
the Hoosiers as he remarked "It's a wonderful thing when a team can
lose that much and still play such good ball." But he was equally as
free with his praise of his own players who, in his words, "battled
their hearts out."

Tables Turned .. .
IN A BIG TEN season where upsets seem to be the rule rather than
the exception, Michigan had turned the trick twice, first to Iowa and
then to Minnesota. Yesterday it was their turn to taste the bitter pill,
and there didn't seem to be anything the Wolverines could do about
it. They played one of their finer games, but just couldn't plant the
football in the end zone.
Meanwhile the Hoosiers took full advantage of Michigan's only
fumble and a momentarylapse in pass defense to score their win-
ning touchdowns, and at the same time put the skids on four Michi-
gan scoring drives with intercepted passes.
Crimmins couldn't say enough about the man who played the key
role in Indiana's offense and an equally important part on defense.
Quarterback Florian Helinski had been hurt all season, and was sup-
posed to be in top condition for the first time yesterday.
It soon became evident that he couldn't be in better shape, for it
was Helinski who handled the Indiana Split-T offense beautifully, rid-
dled the Wolverine secondary with perfect passes, and picked off three!
of the interceptions himself.

Shades of Giel .. .
NOTHING can be taken away from the rest of the plucky Hoosier
team, but no one man since the Paul Giel episode in Minneapolis
last year has played such a major part in ruining Michigan.
Helsinki worked the forward pass for all it was worth in the sec-
ond Indiana touchdown driye. Starting on his own about halfway
through the second quarter he maneuvered the Hoosiers to Michigan's
20 yard line in nine plays. Seven of the calls were for passes, of which
four were completed. All of the passes were of the short buttonhook
variety. Then as Helinski went back to pass again right half Milt
Campbell sprinted out into the right flat, paused as he had been doing
on every play, and then with the defenders sucked in he dashed right
by Ron Kramer into the end zone where he pulled in a perfect lob
The Michigan camp was again hard hit by injuries to two key
backs. Tony Branoff was put out of action by the same knee that had
been hurt twice before, while Dan Cline suffered an injury that may
develop into the same type of cracked rib that sidelined Ed Hickey
for two weeks.

Purdue Deals Illini
Fifth Loss, 28-14;
Murakowski Stars
LAFAYETTE, Ind. W-Big Bill
Murakowski, who didn't start be-
cause of a leg injury, smashed
through Illinois for two touchdowns
yesterday and Purdue kept its Big
Ten championship hopes simmer-
ing, 28-14.
Illinois operated without star
halfback J. C. Caroline in its fruit-
less attempt to win its first West-
ern Conference victory of the sea-
son and gave away two first-half
touchdowns with fumbles deep in
its own territory.
Lenny Dawson, Purdue's sopho-
more quarterback sensation, threw
its 13th touchdown pass of the sea-
son, to 6-7 end Lamar Lundy. It
covered eight yards.
Lucky Sevens
The Boilermakers rolled four 7s,
a touchdown a period, against the
luckless Illini, with Dawson kick-
ing the extra points. Little Rex
Brockhscored one Purdue touch-
down on a four-yard plunge.
Murakowski, 204-pound junior
fullback, covered 7 and 14 yards
in his two scoring sprints.
Illinois matched Purdue's first-
quarter touchdown with Abe Wood-
son's 14-yard run in the second
Halfback Ken Swienton, respon-
sible for one of Illinois' lost-ball
fumbles, made up for it with a
26-yard end run for a touchdown
in the fourth quarter.
Bad Breaks
Things began breaking against
Illinois when Woodson let Rex
Brock's punt roll and it stopped on
the Illinois 4. Rolla McMullen
fumbled on the 7 two plays later
and TomBettis recovered. Mura-
kowski scored on the next play,
his first of the game.
Woodson and Mickey Bates cut
up the Purdue line early in the
second quarter in a scoring drive
that covered 71 yards in 10 plays.
Bates picked off a 20-yard pass!
from Em Lindbeck for a big chunk
of the yardage, and Woodson
flashed the last 14 yards.

Iowa's 13-7 Win
Ends Wisconsin's
Rose Bowl Hopes
IOWA CITY, Iowa (M - Iowa
shook Wisconsin in a 13-7 Big Ten
football surprise yesterday and
dealt a fatal blow to the Badgers'
Rose Bowl hopes.
Iowa rapped the Badgers with
two first half touchdowns and then
fought off a powerful challenge to
get its first victory over Wisconsin
in six years. -
Alan "The Horse" Ameche, aid-
ed by some dazzling passing by
Jim Haluska, almost hauled Wis-
consin to at least a tie but a fum-
bled handoff-play by the Badger
pair dashed their hopes when it
seemed a second touchdown was
a certainty.
Fumble on Five
The misplay came on Iowa's
five - yard line and Earl Smith
snapped up the ball for the Hawks.
That was the dismal end for Wis-
consin. Iowa vigorously kept pos-
session in the frantic final five
minutesasa Dad's Day crowd of
52,185 saluted its favorite sons.
Wisconsin held the whip hand
through most of the last half but
Iowa was in control much of the
first two periods in which the
Hawks got their vital points.
Coach Forest Evashevski, per-
haps as a psychological maneuver
and perhaps to give a reputedly
not too healthy a first team as
much rest as possible, started
Iowa's second unit.
The No. 1 squad went into ac-
tion with 8:30 left in the first pe-
riod and struck for a touchdown
after a Badger -punt to their 49.
Wisconsin...........0 0 7 0- 7
Iowa ................7 6 0 0-13

But Lauter fumbled on the Ohio

Ohio State failed to get started
and Howard Cassady fumbled with
Northwestern's Nosal capturing the
ball on the nine. Northwestern got
as far as the three, but that was
Nosal also was injured in the sec-
ond period to become the third
Northwestern starter to leave the
scene before halftime.
It looked as though Ohio State
had scored another touchdown late
in the second quarter after Dugger

to the 17, and Leggett hit Watkins

on a touchdown play, but it was
nullified by a holding infraction
against Ohio State.

EVANSTON, Ill. (R)-The coach
of the nation's No. 1 team, Ohio
State's unbeaten Buckeyes, sharp-
ly criticized the use of a "slick"
ball in the Bucks' 14-7 squeak past
lowly Northwestern yesterday.
Woody Hayes, whose Buckeyes
scored their sixth straight victory
to grab undisputed first place in

the Big Ten race, made quite a
dressing room speech on the foot-
ball employed by Northwestern.
"Fumbled All Week"
"We fumbled all week in prac-
tice and we fumbled five times to-
day," continued Hayes.
"We even asked the official to
rough up the ball.
"Northwestern is the only team
in the conference to use this type
of ball. Look at the number of
fumbles Northwestern committed
before the game and you'll know
what I mean."
Northwestern committed 30 fum-
bles in five previous games, in-
cluding home starts against Iowa
State, Southern Cal and Michigan
