Among other trick plays tried by Cadillac .was one which worked well on several occasions. Martin, fading far back into punt formation, would swing his foot as if to boot the 'ball far down the field but would toss a short pass to his end just ahead of the line of scrimmage. The play was good for several yards on two or three occasions. Classy Passer Credit for handiest passing of the evening goes to McKinley who rifled the ball down the field just over the heads of the linemen. In spite of its low flight, however, the pigskin would sail true to its mark with amazing speed. Penalties were plentiful with Ludington losing more than twice as much yardage as Cadillac via this route. The Orioles Svere penalized 85 yards while Cadillac lost 40. During the last two quarters, however, the Vikings were making inroads on the Oriole lead in this column, most of the Wexford team's penalties coming near the end of the battle. On several occasions, Cadillac pushed the ball deep into Ludington territory for what looked like fine scoring opportunities but each time the home team | stiffened and refused to let the | vistors score. for point after count was 20-U.

(/P>-If you hear thunder in the West Sunday, it may be the repercussions of two turbulent tussles in the National Professional Football league. Deadlocked for the Western division lead, the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions are being thrust into a pair of show-down extravaganzas with the Washington Redskins and Chicago Bears. Although beaten twice, the Bears have the highest geared scoring machinery in the league and have averaged 28 points a game in six contests. They may not win the championship, but certainly will have a lot to say about who does. Undefeated Washington is tied with the similarly unbeaten New York Giants for Eastern honors and can ill afford to miss n step now. The Redskins, too, have a super-powered offensive sparked by Frank Filchock and Andy Parkas that will test Green Bay's great defensive record. While these major operations are being performed in the west, the folks around here are going to have some fun in their own back yard. The Giants are going" 13-U. over { o play the Brooklyn Dodg- iine, ers anc j t ne \vorcl already is lor i around that Ebbets field is sold Uie out. The game, beyond the threat the ; it carries to New York's cham- had : pionship defense. amounts to erri- little more than an interbor- ough feud which lasts the year around here. But it will bring together the season's two outstanding field goal kickers—Ward Cuff of the Giants and Ralph Kercheval of the Dodgers. Each booted three of them in games last Sunday to tie the league record, and they are carrying on a personal rivalry for the place-kicking leadership. The day's other same brings Pittsburgh's hapless Pirates into action at Cleveland. Still without a victory in the present camDaign. the Pirates are accorded little chance to pick up one from the Rams, who have the league's leading .scorer in John Drake and the foremost forward passer in Parker Hall.

Ed Arnold scored lirst, going over from the . three-yard line and Don Smith : opened the secmid half with a .sensational 85-yard return of the kick-off for a counter. Ar! nold then scored again, getting ; across in four plays after Smith : returned a kick 50 yards. Bud Wilson also scored from the two-yard line in the third period. Smith made the final counter in the last period alter runs ; by Jack King took the bull to ; Adrian's one-foot line. Nick Chorup's nin'iinr- and Bob Cot- j tell's passing und kicking featured Adrian's play. ! Ferris opened the scoring in und off-tackle slants for the most part. Because of the : condition of the field, footing 'was ntt favorable for many end runs. The pass Burr of Cadillac intercepted in the first quarter was the first Ludington pass to be intercepted this season. j One of the most unusual plays came in the second quarter. Cadillac had the ' ball on its own 30 yard line but fumbled. D. Horowski recovered the ball in mid-air and toted the oval 30 yards for Ludington's fourth and final i touchdown. The game closed the Luding- tf£i home season. The big game of the season still lays j ahead of the Oriole.s. Next Friday they meet the Traverse (City Trojans in what is shaping up a.s a slam-bang battle. first period of the St. Mary's game when R. Hammerberg fell: across the line with a St. Mary's! fumble.

St. : Miii-y.s got both scores in the third period. Sobc/ak passed 15 • yards in Zdunski who stepped across ihe goal. A few plays later s/ymusiak received a Ferris punt and run GO yards to a touchdown. Central State Teachers took to the air to gain it.s sixth straight victory in the Ball State game. The score came in the .second period when Leo Wis- shot u 12-yard screen pass to Howard Kl/.inga who made it good for 32 yards on Ball State's 13. Royce Norton took Wisneski's 11-yard toss, on the fourth attempt to pass, and stepped over. Godeleski place- kicked the extra point. Michigan Normal's victory was it.s first of the season and the Kalamuzoo Hornets' fifth loss in six games. Mac Valleau of Norm;il run 25 yards off tackle for a touchdown after a blocked Kalumazoo punt. Kramer of Kalamazoo passed to Graham for 14 yards to tie the score G-G at the half. Normal then pushed over two touchdowns early in the third quarter. Jim Walsh took a forward pass from Borobich for a touchdown after a Kalamazoo back had deflected the ball. John I Grant recovered a Kalamazoo ' passer's fumble in the air and ran 44 yards for a touchdown. (By HUGH S. FULLERTON JR.) NEW YORK, Oct. 28.— (A 3 )— No matter how you look at the dozens of good games on the college football program this mid-season Saturday afternoon, three of them stand out head and shoulders above the rest. They're all East-Midwest intersectional games—Cornell vs. Ohio State, Yale vs. Michigan and Carnegie Tech vs. Notre Dame. Considering the known j strength of the teams, their rec-; I ords and prestige. about the i only other contests that might i be mentioned in the same I breath are North Carolina vs. | Pennsylvania, Purdue vs. Santa ! Clara and two Pacific Coast conference clashes. Oregon-U. C. L. A. and Southern California-California. Take the first, for example. Ohio State shares with Michigan the lead in the Big Ten, perhaps the most powerful of all college conference with the single exception of its last-place member, Chicago. Cornell, long a ranking member of the East's informal but none the less influential "Ivy League," has come up with an unusually fine team, perhaps the best in the East. Yale with a rather unimpressive record, hardly figures to give Michigan a tussle, but there's the well known fact that Yale teams just don't go down any way but fighting. The Elis are exhibiting in the mid-west for the second time in history all the color and background that is traditional with Yale football. Although younger than Yale's, Notre Dame's football tradition is almost as strong. And a part of it is that Carnegie is one team most likely to upset the Irish. Carnegie itself was upset last week, by New York university, and doesn't appear likely to turn the tables-this time. Each of those games figures to attract 60.000 or more fans. The others, except Purdue-Santa Clara, are in the 50.000 and up class as gate attractions. Penn is one of the East's few unbeaten and untied teams while North Carolina, a major southern power, has only been tied. Oregon and U. C. L. A. are j candidates for the coast title ', and the Rose Bowl. So is South- i ern California, which is back ! near the top after a shaky start. Frankie ride. /uthough the Colonel E. R. Bradley colt was looked upon as the horse "to oeat, some pickers favored Mrs. Parker Coming's straight lead, which gave track fans a thrill by forcing the older &peed to spare all the way in the New Rochelle handicap *a week ago. The Cosgrove otable'.s Fairy Imp. daughter of Gino out of Dark Fairy, was the only filly in the field and was regarded generally as a "mystery" entry although .she won some races in Canada. The other entries were Dusky Duke, winner of his first race last, Saturday Belair stud's Fenelon, Mrs. W. Plunkett Stewart's Equi- stone, Walter Schuttler's Strawberry, Ben Lister's One O One, and John Marsh's Sundodger. Football Results HIGH SCHOOL Luclington 'J7. Cadlllae 0. Ti averse City 24.
