Ohio State J. gave up reluctantly and stubbornly. Its G-0 defeat by Iowa here Saturday was a rubber-hosed confession from a tough gangster. The Buckeyes submitted to their defeat grudgingly and under duress. But the Hawkeyes, scenting roses and seeking a Big Ten title, were not to be denied by superior manpower or faster backs. Running back the second-half kickoff for 11 yards to their own 37-yard line, they rloosed a series of plays with the regularity of a metronome during a piano lesson 3 yards, 1 yard, 13, 4, 5, 2, 15 and 3.

They never had a chance, barring an attempted field goal in the second quarter with the ball held 49 yards from the uprights. SO Coach Forest Evashevski, his staff and his players are sure of a trip to the Rose Bowl and could win the conference championship if Michigan defeats the Buckeyes Saturday. The Hawkeyes fought desperately and successfully throughout the game, containing Ohio State the second best running team in the nation preventing it from passing successfully, and shutting out the Bucks. It was the second time Iowa has horse-collared a strong team in successive games. Minnesota was last week's victim, 7-0. Frequently Iowa players were helped from the field because of injuries or from old injuries that had been augmented in the rough going, but iliey were so determined to vin that always they came back for more or the same.

Iowa's one big touchdown came immediately after them' on the field, finally hauled down the goal posl3 the second-half kickoff, which the Hawks returned to Long after the players had left the scene uncount- and began the triumphant march on the city proper. None can doubt that this was the greatest victory of all. It meant more than any game ever played in Iowa Stadium. Both teams were involved. Ohio State was fighting their 37.

IA-The "old man," Coach Forest Evashevski of Iowa's football team-became a boy again Saturday afternoon 'as he cast off his sober countenance and joined in the fun. Evy led. the singing, cheering and shouting as his Hawk-eyes did about everything but "rock 'n' roll" after they upset Ohio State, 6-0. Under the Shower For the secDnd straight week "the big Polack" had himself a ball and no one was any happier. Eventually, his players grabbed him and pushed him under a shower to give him the traditional treatment after a team wins a title. Evy didn't protest. It has been 34 years since Iowa's last Big Ten football championship, and in a brief hour in the dressing room the Hawks did enough celebrating to make up for the drought. One of Iowa's immortals' on the 1921 title team, Duke Slater, also took part in the impromptu celebration. The Hawks hae clinched a tie and will have the title outright if Michigan defeats Ohio State next Saturday. Evy had no choice but to smell roses for the Rose Bowl in the dressing room as dozens of photographers posed him with flowers. He seemed to enjoy every minute of it.
