A twenty-six-yard run for touch- down by Babb, speedy little Negro halfback from Fort Wayne, who Shook himself loose after splitting the Ohio left tackle, put the Hoosiers In the lead in the first ten minutes of play. Keckich provided the winning point when he booted the place kick squarely over. It was Keckich again who prevented the Bobcats from tying the count in the third period. Sabik's fumble, recovered by Sintic on the Indiana twenty-yard line, had given the Ohioans their scoring opportunity and thev promptly took it. Brown Jpassed to Sadosky for twelve yard-:, ! and then the chunky Bobcat fullback cracked the Hoosier line twice to put the ball over. Keckich Cut Off Point: Sintic went back to try for the oint, but Keckich broke through to cut off the chance touchdown dash when Bob Jones Indiana fullback, got off a sixty-five-yard punt which was downed by Martich, Indiana end, on the Ohio one-yard line. Snyder, standing behind his goal, made a short kick Vhich Saluski returned to the twenty-six-yard line. On the firs' Jflay, Babb was away.

While the triumph made safe jthe defense of their Conference and ! national titles for at least a week, , the performance boded ill for another I flay. Irving Warburton, w-ho flashed so i brilliantly a week ago against Utah. failed to follow his interference and otherwise conducted himself as just another quarterback. Orville Mohler also lacked punch. On the other hand, the Cougars's vaunted aerial game fizzled from the start. IOWA TURNS BACK BRADLEY TECH, 31-7 IOWA CITY la., Oct. 1.-U.P.)

Pug Rent-ner, Dick Fenci and George Potter, to quell Missouri's unruly Tigers today, but the Wildcats did a thorough job after getting started and won, 27 to 0. A surprisingly large crowd of 28,000 spectators watched Missouri battle the Wildcats to a standstill in the first half, and hold the eo- champions of the Western Conference to a 0-0 tie. Then Hanley sent in his trio, who had been out with injuries and who were not to be used except in case of need, and the offense, started to click. Wildcats Show Power. In its ffrst test, Northwestern showed plenty of power, and the line, which was expected to be the weak point, completely outplayed the Tiger forwards.

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind., Oct. 1. Wabash and Franklin opened the football season here this afternoon by playing to a scoreless tie. The Little Giants drove to Franklin's seven-yard line in the first period, but the Baptists then took the ball on downs. The Scarlet threatened again in the second quarter, advancing to the twenty - five - yard mark, but this march also died out. The visitors missed two scoring chances in the last half. Once Wabash held for downs on the six-yard line and later a fifteen-yard penalty stopped Franklin after the ball had been advanced on passes to the ten-yard line. Lose Another Opportunity. In the fourth period the Cavemen lost another opportunity to cross the Franklin goal when they failed to gain after the visitors had fumbled on their twenty-yard stripe. Isselhart and Dick were outstanding in Franklin's line, while Martin was the most consistent ground-gainer. Peterson played best for Wabash in the back field and in the line Reinert, Stierwalt and H.

BATES HOLDS YALE AT BAY NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 1 W Bates resisted a closing thrust on its own one-yard line today to hold Yale to a scoreless tie in the opening football game here. Led by Billy Pricher, 19-year-old sophomore halfback from Brooklyn, N. Y., the visitors not only repulsed every Eli drive, but launched several drives of their own that barely lacked a scoring punch.

After getting the ball on a punt on their own thirty-three-yard line, the Elis, on a series of long runs by Clem Williamson and Charlie Heim, advanced to within one yard of V touchdown. Bates Turns Back Rivals. On two successive plays, however, the Bates team smothered Heim behind his own line, throwing him for a less of nine yards. Big Joe Crowley, in the previous period, led another Yale drive which advanced the ball from Its own thirty-five-yard line to within twenty yards of a score before Bates stiffened to get the ball on downs.

In the opening period he skirted around right end for sixteen yards to Yale's fifteen-yard line. Toward the close of the game he again shot around the right side of the line for thirty-three, yards, putting Bates twenty-seven yards away from a score.

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Oct. 1. -Pur due took full advantage of the breaks to defeat a hard-fighting Kansas State football team, 29 to 13 in the opening game of the season here today. Purdue's play was none too Im pressive, despite the size of the score, and the Wildcats batted on fairly even terms until the third quarter when the Boilermakurs pushed over two touchdowns. Both teams were credited with thirteen first downs, the Wildcats' big gains resulting from a spectacular forward passing attack that was a threat throughout the game. Purdue started the third quarter holding a slim 9-to-7 lead, but Ben Merz, alert end, pounced on Russell's fumble early in the period to give the Boilermakers the ball on the Wildcat five-yard line. Duane Purvis, the only sophomore in the starting line up, finally swept around his own left end for the touchdown that allowed Purdue's backers to breath easier. Carter Breaks Away. A moment latar a bad kick by Russell went out of bounds on the visitors' twenty-eight-yard line, to give Purdue another touchdown opportunity. A steady drive finally worked the ball to the eleven-yard line, and Fred Hecker raced around end for the touchdown. The final Purdue score came in the fourth period when Jim Carter, sophomore back from In dianapolis, broke loose on a reverse play through tackle for a thirty-five-yard run across the goal line. Capt. John Oehler, Purdue center, made the first Purdue points possi- tbla early in the first quarter when he Knifed through the line to block Russell's kick, which was recovered beyond the end zone for a safety.

Play Brilliantly in Air. Both of the Kansas touchdowns came as the result of brilliant aerial play, which had the Purdue backs running wild. With Emmett Breen passing and fleet-footed Dougal Russell on the receiving end, two long thrusts provided some spectacular fireworks. The first came in the second quarter when Russell packed a pass on the dead run and raced through a broken field thirty-six yards, while the second came in the fourth quarter, when Breen passed to tRussell across the goal line from midfield.

W A smooth-working and seemingly powerful Harvard football machine opened its season today in impressive fashion with a 66-to-0 triumph over the Buffalo team which was battered and bruised a week ago by Cornell. Using nothing but simple power plays and passes from orthodox formations, the Harvard backs, regulars and reserves alike, skirted the ends and plowed through the line almost at will. Coach Eddie Casey started his strongest combination, but before the first period had ended a parade of substitutes began which saw virtually the entire squad in action before the contest ended.

W Princeton's first nonalumnus-coached football team, at times .resembling the Tiger for which it has long been known, jumped away to a running start in its 1932 campaign today by smothering a gailant Amherst eleven, 22 to 0. The men of Nassau, now drilled by Fritz Crisler of mid-Western grid fame, displayed to about ten thousand fans, mostly alumni and students, a deceptive line and back field shift, a single wing back attack and better tackling than they have exhibited in many years. McGuire saved the game a second time when he brought down Quirk, Marquette halfback, on Wisconsin's five-yard line as the final gun sounded. Quirk had caught a long pass from Elliott and made a sixty-four-yard gain before the fleet McGuire stopped him just short of a touchdown. Dr. Clarence W. Spears's Big Ten contenders were not disappointing to' Wisconsin fans in their first appear ance under his coaching. They had a pass defense which intercepted Marquette's tosses frequently and made many others incomplete. And they showed a drive that promised something against Western Conference opponents to come. Marquette's line Dlay was tougher and Capt. Gregory Kabat of Wisconsin, playing at center for the first time, failed to match the accurate passing of Krueger, Marquette center. Punting was Wisconsin's weakest point.
