The oval was, resting five yards from the Packer; goal. ' Dunn faked a line plunge and tossed a pass In Erirkson's direction. The, Cardinal halfback stabbed at the ball. , It era2ed his hands and bounded Into; Anderson's reach and Eddie ran be-; hind the goal line with the oval. The football rules read that a pa's is incomplete if Hie first man receives a forward push does not retain ovat unless it i touched by a player of the opposing teffhi. "Passed The Buck" No member of the Paekr team came near the ball. Naturally, the Tarkers expected to have the pass ruled illegal. Kefereo Ritter claimed he did not see the play. Ho passed the buck to Umpire Hcrdeamp, who in turn stated that ho was not on 'top' of the play. These two officials questioned Head Linesman McGregor and he ruled that Basing touched the brill. As a matter of fart Basing was covering his man, who had ran out as a decoy on the other sido of the field. Basing was, at least, ten yards, from the pass. Then the trouble started, the Packers were wild and charges of 'robbery' filled the air. Many of the Green Bav rooters, they w'oro there about 600 strong, jumped from the grandstand and ran to the sides of the playing field. Of course, the Cardinal followers did the same.One of the Bayites hit Head Linesman McGregor on the jaw and it wouldn't have taken much to have starte a fine little free-for-all. About a dozen Chicago cops did a ijuiek Mep and the field was cleared and the game went on. Blocked Priscoll's Try , '. LTiscoll'is try for goal after a touchdown was blocked and the Green Bayians breathed a bit easier. But the Cardinals launched another savage attack and, a partly blocked punt, Green Bay's only bad kick of the game, gave the ball to the Chicago team on the 35 yard line. There was only utxvit 90 seconds to play but it seemed like hours. A Cardinal pass put the ball near the Packers goal and Driscoll did the rest with a field goal. , Even the most rabid Chicago fans said after the game that it was one of the greatest pro football contests ever staged in the Windy City. With second place in the League standing, practically assured the winner, both learns went at it with a vengeance. Savage Tackling Affair It was a savage tackling affair. Both clubs smeared for all they were worth and the man with the ball was given pretty rough treatment The Packer backfleld remained intact all the game. Only the superb condition of the Bay carriers enabled them to stand the gaff. Lewellen, who played his greatest game in a Packer uniform, was knocked wozzy several times but fought, like a tiger when they wanted to take him out of the game and he stuck to the finish. Although the sun smiled brightly and a snappy wind swept across the gridiron, the playing field was more fit for snow shoes than a gridiron encounter. For houis before the game, the Chicago management had an I army of workers clearing the snow; off the field. The going was mucky ' but despite the soft under footing some sparkling football was pulled off. Fighting Packer Team It, was a fighting Packer team that went down to defeat. They were beaten but not outclassed. Even after DriscoH had booted the field gop.l and there was only 3S seconds left to j play, the Jiays received the kick oil j and gained considerable, jarduge. For three quarters, Green Bay; held a decided advantage. Up Unltl j the hvst four minutes, Chicago was j never within field goal kicking dis- j lance.

WEST HIGH SCORES 21-14 WIN AGAINST OSHKOSH GRIDDERS Well, the best team got beat and wo aren't afraid to tell the world that. It Is Impossible to beat the Cnrdinals in Chicago any way and they refuse to play off their homo grounds. Tho Packers are done trying and unless tho Cardinals will come to Green Bay next, there will be no game between the teams. Tho Bay followers were loyal to tho Big Bay Blues right up until the end. A near fight prevailed when the crowd was leaving tho park. One of Green Bay rooters remarked to a Juhliant Cardinal fan that he was glad the Packers lost the way they did than won the way the Cards did. This relit the fires of hatred that hud b'.en smouldering Blnce McGregor ruled the Chicago pass legal and hostilities loomed but cops cut short the disturbance. Head Linesman McGregor announced that ho would file a report on the game to President Carr and ,thnt in tho future, he would demand more police protection for officials. All the time, he was rubbing his jaw as if it was a tender spot. The shades of a well known West Side butcher. McGregor won't be 1 he only one to fill? a report ns tho Packer management will seek to have, him barred from officiating in any more pro football games. It Is safe to say that ihere were about 700 Green Bnyinns rooting their heads off in the Packer see--tion. During the last quarter, at leat two hundred of them were parked near the Packer bench, willing to fight Chicago and all its suburbs if necessary. One of the Chicago cops said ho never raw surh a 'rar'in' gang as "that bunch from Wisconsin." BCLIJBTIN DETROIT Tho Detroit Tanthers kept their record clean In the Pro Football league by taking Milwaukee, ! into camp, 21 to 0.

Next Sundry, Detroit Invades Chicago to tackle the Bears, Murph White's Footballers Take ;re Hard Fought Contest From Sawdust City Team. BY BILLY EVANS It Is possible for a. football coach to pave tho way to a winning season months in advance of that time. I have reference to tho making of a team's schedule. Since a majority of coaches hae the last word in the assigning of dates, the schedule is largely molded around their judgment. Not so many years ago if a major college eleven had three outstanding games on Its schedule it was living up to precedent. If four games were arranged the schedule was considered a heavy one. Now it is not at all uncommon for a college to have six big games, two a trifle less Important, and possibly one'sput In all the dates a soft one. Perhaps tho biggest surprise of the year In football circles was tho easy mariner in which Illinois beat Pennsylvania. The schedules of the-two teams without a doubt played a prominent part In that dope upset. While heavy schedules are the rule rather than the exception this year, w colleges in tho country contracted for bigger things than did Illinois and Pennsylvania. An idea of Pcnn's ambitious schedule can be gleaned from the fact that on successive Saturdays It met Brown, EAST GREEN BAY IN 34-3 VICTORY OVER ANTIGO HIGH SQUAD i iaying oeio.o a ...... .- . rhlra0 lmnai. i rich and Oshkosh High '. battled in their annual Fox River Valley confer ence game at Oshkosh on Saturday j matins' wltn Nebraska, which always litis one oi me uesi, icums in ine miuuie Now glance at what Illinois faced at the start of the season. First cume a and the Purple team emerged victors, the final scoro being 21 to 14. Tho game was hard fought throughout but the superiority of the West aiders was POTTSVILLE, Pa. Tho Pottsville Maroons defeated tho Akron Tigers Sunday in a game which may have an importcint bearing on the National league, championship, 21 to 0. Tliis defeat, together with that of yesterday by the Fratrkford Yellow Buckets, eliminates Akron from championship honors, for which they were surious contenders only 4S hours ago.

Tho weather also made forward passing difficult but a great many aerial attempts were completed. The Purple team showed ii'ieh improved form over their naylng of a w"eck ago despite the fact that Injuries kept four regulars from the game. However, tho reserves who took their places fitted Into the game nicely. The tackling of the Purple team was excellent and the Sawdust Cily aggregation gained but little through the Purple line. The first touchdown made by the lo west. The next four opponents were Butler, Iowa, Michigan ami I'enn. So when Penn faced Illinois It had been through 'three terrific struggles land Illinois had weathered four. I say weathered, because in three of the four games Illinois had suffered de feat. In football a coach usually points his team for certain games. That is, he wants his squad to be in top form for thoso particular dates. Prior to the Illinois' game the biggest spot in Penn's schedule was Yale. It was the first meeting tn years and I'enn wanted to beat Yale more than any other team on its schedule with tho possible exception of Cornell. It succeeded. There is no wiser coach In football than Zuppke of Illinois. After being beaten by Nebraska and Iowa, I am inclined to think that he set his cap to beat Michigan iid Pennsylvania. He pointed for those two games. How Illinois held Michigan, one of cals came in the middle of the first he greatest teams the west has had period. Some nice end runs by Johnson and Hansen carried the ball to the 15 yard line and a pass Herber to Quinn did the rest and as usual Radwick kicked goal. Offsiifo Hurts West Tho Oshkosh team scored their in years, to a 3-0 victory, is now foot ball history. Even more remarkable was tho victory over Pennsylvania. Another thing that figured big in the Penn-Illinois game was the old mental hazard, which was on Penn's side. Prior to the Illlnl contest Penn had a clean slate, while Illinois had CANTON, C; CLEVELAND, 0 CANTON, O. Tho Canton Bulldogs defeated the Clevelunds today, 6 to 0, in a bitterly fought pro league contest.

Line up: The Packer management Is beginning to think that big crowds in Chicago are the bunk. Yesterday's game attracted a trifle less than 3.000 and there was no division of financial spoils o'cr tho guarantee. Next Sunday tho Packers play their final game of the season nt home.

Hilltoppers' Brilliant Attack Proves too Much for Lumberjacks Eleven. Contentment ruled supreme among the Antlgu high school grldders Saturday afternoon as they smiled their way out of the City Athletic atadlum arter registering the first score of the season against East Green Bay's eleven in a game which was filled with thrills and ended with the score standing 34 to 3 in favor of the Bay team. Tho aggregation which started the tussle against the "Lumber-jacks," with but two exceptions, was cofn-pu.sed of second-string pigskin chaser and shortly before the end of the initial quarter, the Antigo "prides" by displaying a nifty forward passing combination worked the ball down to tha Hilltoppers' ten yard line. At this stage of the game, the Red and AVhito mentor sent his regulars Into the fray but they were a bit too late in arriving for the Antigo outfit had the oval in scoring territory and after two line-bucks went for nothing, Hoffman, the visitors' half-back, stepped back to the 15 yard line and booted a pretty dropkick which smeared the Hilltoppers' clean slate. The quarter ended about a minute later with Anti-go leading the Bay team 3 to 0. Zuidmiilder Scores Coach Wiley's men were a bit rattled at tho start of the second period but they were not long in finding themselves. After about eight minutes of this quarter had elapsed, the- fighting East Green Bay machine worked the ball down in scoring territory and Zuidmulder. the Hilltopper left half-back, smashed five yards through the Antigo grldders for a touchdown. He added another point via the plare-klck route. The Wiley-ites started another goahvard march only to be halted by the whistle which closed the first half. Score: East high 7, Antigo 3. East came back after the intermission with plenty of determination: and all during the third period the Hilltoppers had the visitors on a steady backward gallop. The Bay lino was opening big holes for the speed merchants behind the forward wall who were stepping off long and spectacular runs. Coach Wiley's pro teges collected a total of 20 points during this quarter. The touchdowns were made by Bokoski, Brunette nad Murphy. Zuidmulder added two points by place-kicks after two of tho tallies. During the final period, Antigo strengthened a bit and v hold tho Crimson warriors to a lone touchdown. This was made by Murphy after he received a toss from Zuidmulder. Murphy zig zagged his way down the field throwing off a half dozen would bo ladders. It was the prettiest run of tho encounter. On On Foot Lino East threatened the visitors again during the last minutes of play when they marched down tho field on,ly to be halted on the one foot line as the game ended.

CHICAGO (U.R) On three storrn-nwept gridirons last Saturday, the football championship race of the Big Ten conference was thrown Into turmoil, the three leading contenders were upset In the mud, and now tho title may be copped by almost any body. By long odds the most startling tip pet of a hectic day was the 3 to 2 vie. tory of Northwestern's Wildcats over the powerful Michigan Wolverines. Faced by a sea of mud and a driving rain that made a passing game vlr- tually impossible. Northwestern played smart football, kicked a field goal before the ball got too wet and heavy for accurate booting, and then played an air tight defensive game that kept the charging Wolverines out of danger. Used Ills Brains Once Michigan got the ball tn Wild cat territory, but lost it on downs anil then it was that Captain Tom Iwry used his brains, ordered Lewis to fall f on the ball behind tho goal Una for a safety, giving Michigan its two points, but removing the danger of a, touchdown. Before last Saturday Michigan had won three conference victories anil had defeated the Navy, 54 to 0. Tins Wolverines appeared almost unbeatable and odds ns long as 3 to 1 had been given that they would beat Northwestern. Wisconsin's 6 to 0 victory over low In a blinding snowstorm was the see-on upset of the day- The Badgers were known to hava plenty of potential strength but had played Indifferent football in earlier games. Iowa had two conforonce victories and no defeats or ties before the fatal Wisconsin game. "Fumbliw Are Costly The handicaps of mud and raht proved too much for "Red" Grange to get away on any of his long runa but Illinois took advantage of the costly Chicago fumbles and won from Coach Stagg's Maroons, 13 to 6. Chicago's defeat removed the last of the conference schools from the stainless column, but the Maroons had suffered fl a tie earlier in the softfion. Ohio came through with an unimpressive 7 to 0 victory over the Improved Indiana eleven.
