IOWA CITY, Iowa 0'-A bruising
Iowa football team, with touches
of individual brilliance, struck for
a 25-0 halftime lead yesterday and
had more than enough in reserve
for a 25-14 victory over Purdue.
The pummelling blasted Purdue
out of the Big Ten title race and a
possible Rose Bowl appearance,
the same fate Wisconsin met on
the same field only a week ago.
It was the second loss in four
games for the Boilermakers. By its
victory Iowa zoom.d into fourth
place with a 4-2 record.
Iowa gave the 52,900 homecom-
ing fans a smashing performance
as a relentless ground attack got
two specular touches from half-
backs Eddie Vincent and Earl
Smith.
Vincent rambled 96 yards for
Iowa's fourth and final touchdown
with 4:34 remaining in the second
quarter to establish a modern con-
ference record. Eddie, taking the
ball on a reverse, hit through Pur-
due's right tackle, had trouble for
a few yards and then outsped his
challengers down the east sideline.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (M - Ohio
State's powerful .Buckeyes enh-
anced their No. 2 national ranking
yesterday as they scored in every
period and stopped the Pittsburgh
Panthers cold for a 26-0 non-con-
ference victory before 80,886 fans.
Pittsburgh, which had defeated
Northwestern, unbeaten Navy, and
West Virginia in its last three
starts, failed to reach the Ohio 40-
yard line as the Bucks completely
smothered the Panther power and
passing attack.
Probably the happiest kid in town
was Ken Thompson, sophomore
halfback from Dayton, Ohio, who
got into the game in the last three
minutes as Ohio flooded the field
with the last of its bench-warmers.
Carrying the ball for the first time
for the Buckeyes, Thompson took
a pitchout from Bill Booth and
rolled 32 yards around his left end
for the final touchdown.
Earlier the Bucks had moved 81
yards in 19 plays, 34 in 3, and 80

Watkins getting two on the ground,
and quarterback Dave Leggett
pitching 13 yards to end Bill Mi-
chael for the other.
Pittsburgh gained only 118 yards
rushing and 19 passing to Ohio's
242 on the ground and 83 through
the air. The Bucks had 20 first
downs to Pittsburgh's 5.
The Panthers lost the ball twice
on fumbles and twice on pass in-
terceptions, to halt promising
drives.

TOUCHDOWN-The deadly blocking of Michigan linemen, Ron Geyer (71) and G. Edgar Meads (76), gives Lou Baldacci (27) a

Baldacci cracked over for the

Fleet Illini Fill J.C.'s Shoes
Halfbacks Abe Woodson and Jef-
ferson, who more than adequately
filled the shoes of the ailing J. C.
Caroline, raked the Michigan line
with a series of long gains to get
the Illini off to their early lead.
Woodson swept left end *for six
yards and the touchdown that cli-
maxed a 72 yard sustained drive.
The Illini moved within striking
distance three times in the last
half, but the ease with which their
fleet backs roamed in mid-field
didn't hold inside Michigan's 20.
Early in the third quarter Eliot's
men moved from their own 9 to
Michigan's 17 before the Wolver-
ines tightened their defenses and
stopped Woodson with no gain on
a fourth and three situation.

hands on the ball it took advantage

12-yard pass to again advance to
the Michigan 17 before losing the
ball on downs.
Illini Roll
The Illini again rolled when they
got the ball after Baldacci's punt
fell dead on Illinois' 16, but this
time the drive was halted when
Wolverine end Tom Maentz recov-
ered Jefferson's fumble on the
Michigan 34.
The Wolverines got deep into Il-
linois territory only once during
the e!?tire second half, and that
drive was both originated and bro-
ken up by fumbles.
In the middle of the last quarter
a punt by Kramer was taken by
Jefferson and lateraled to Woodson
who fumbled and the ball was re-
covered by Michigan ; guard Dick
Hill. Five plays later Baldacci re-
turned the favor and Illinois recov-
ered on the 12.
Both Michigan and Illinois had
potential touchdowns nullified by
penalties in the second quarter.
After Kramer had blocked an at-
tempted punt by Woodson and Ed
Meads had recovered on the Illi-
nois 15, three plays advanced the
ball but three yards. Kramer took
the ball on an end-around play and
completed a pass to Maentz on the
two, but the play was called back
and Illinois took over because Kra-
mer had passed from over the line
of scrimmage.

by pushing outclassed Washington
State all over Macklin Stadium in
a 54-6 runaway.
The Spartans scored on three
plays in the first three minutes of
the first quarter, rambled for three
more touchdowns in both the sec-
ond and third quarters and added
one more in the final period.
Eight MSC backs and ends
shared in the touchdown scoring
with no repeaters. MSC also picked
up a two-point safety and made

The Morning After
.. .by HANLEY GURWIN
Rumor has it around Ann Arbor this morning that Michigan
needs only two more victories to sew up a Rose Bowl berth.
After having watched the Wolverines for six weeks running now,
I am firmly convinced that when it comes to Michigan football, any-
thing is possible, even two more victories.
At times this season, the Wolverines have played as though they
could lick any team in the country. At other times, they have looked
as though they might be a soft touch for our friends at Slippery Rock
State Teachers College. Between these two extremes are a few games
when Michigan played the way an average Big Ten team would be
expected to look.
Last Saturday against Indiana and again yesterday against the
Illini, they have more or less fallen into this middle category. When
two Big Ten teams meet on the gridiron past records mean little and
unless one of the two squads in unusually powerful while the other
is unusually weak, no prediction of the outcome can be made with
any degree of certainty.
Although Michigan lost to Indiana and won over Illinois, the two
games were very similar in many respects. Both contests were clean-
ly played, hard fought affairs between Western Conference opponents
in which neither team dominated the game to any great extent.
In the Indiana tussle, the Wolverines seemed to have a slight ad-
vantage in the ground gaining department but the Hoosiers stiffened
on defense when the situation called for it, and succeeded in holding
the Wolverines to only one touchdown.
This is exactly the same way which Michigan earned wins over
Northwestern and Illinois. The Wildcats ran wild over the Maize
and Blue and Illinois seemed to have little difficulty in picking up
ground anywhere on the field-anywhere but deep in Michigan ter-
ritory that is.
In yesterday's game, the difference in statistics is negligible.
In first downs, the Wolverines compiled 15 to the Illini's 17. On
the ground Michigan gained 173 yards while Illinois picked up 190.
The Wolverines had a slight edge in passing, outgaining the visitors
112 yards to 85 yards in that department. The only real difference in
the game seemed to be the share of the breaks that Michigan recelv-
ed were the necessary share.
Woodson Runs in Vain...
A five-yard penalty for an illegal shift in the Illinois backfield
nullified a 61-yard touchdown run by halfback Abe Woodson which
would have put the invaders ahead by a touchdown midway through
the second period. Neither team was able to take advantage of a
"break" to score, with all three touchdowns being the climax of sus-
tained drives up the field.
A blocked punt by Ron Kramer, who played another sensational
game at end for Michigan, and the recovery of two Illini fumbles,
provided the Wolveries with scoring chances, but in each case the op-
portunity was allowed to slip by.
Illinois had its share of good fortune too, as two pass Intercep-
tions and a penalty for an illegal forward pass cost the Wolverines
touchdowns. The illegal pass play occured within the Orange and
Blue's ten yard stripe in the second quarter. Kramer, on the end-
around play, fired a complete pass to Tom Maentz on the two-yard
line but the play was called back because Kramer was just over the
line of scrimmage when the ball was thrown.
Although moral victories don't count, the Illini, who were a decid-
ed underdog going into the contest, have no need to be ashamed of
their showing, even if it did result in their first defeat to the Wol-
verines in five years.
Next week Michigan State comes into Michigan Stadium for
what the Wolverines are hoping to be the first of two big ones. For
the first time this season, more than 97,000 fans will jam the stadium
to see the Wolverines in action.
Spartans To Shoot Works...
Both squads want to win this one badly. The only consolation
that the Spartans might find in this otherwise disastrous football
season for them would be a victory over their state rivals, the Wol-
verines. Michigan has not beaten the Green and White in the last four
meetings between the schools and needs this one to regain its past
status as the toast of the state of Michigan.
Needless to mention, the Ohio State clash would hold little sig-
nificance for the Wolverines if Michigan lost to the Spartans.
This coming Saturday both teams will be in the right psycholog-
ical state of mind for the contest. Either squad can very easily de-
feat the other if it happens to be "on" while the other is "off." On
paper Michigan appears to have a slight edge on the basis of the
season's record, but that record isn't worth the paper it is printed
on once the game starts.
Anything is likely to happen and to me a score of 28-0 in favor
of either team is a perfectly logical possibility. Any attempt at a
prediction is more in the nature of a wishful thought than a calcu-
lated opinion.
The Wolverines have the ability to beat the Spartans. They have
proven that with their showings against Iowa and Minnesota. Wheth-
er or not they do, remains to be seen. In this league, nothing is a cer-
tainty except the date, time, and place of the game.
