C 8 Notre Dame Bounces Back To Overwhelm Northwestern Gridders By 34 To 7 THE HARTFORD DAILY COURANT: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER IS, 1915. Victors Halt Four Bids In Early Stages Wildcats Avert Shutout With 77-Yard Drive in Last Period Evanston, 111., Nov. 17. (AP.) Notre Dame, overwhelmed by the Army, 48-0, a week ago, bounced back Into the victory column today by smothering Northwestern 34-7, before a starjdtng room crowd of 49 .500 largest at Dyche Stadium since the late Knute Rockne fielded his last championship Irish team in 1930. Notre Dame was outplayed by the scrappy Wildcats In the first two periods, and succeeded in throttling Northvestcrn touchdown bids. Thereafter, the Wildcats' offensive fuzled but they managed to avert a shutoir. with a 77-yard touchdown drive late In the final period. The Irish scored in each of the lour periods, crossing the goal line twice in the fourth on aggressive heads up play. Although the Wildcats controlled the ball most of the first half, they were stopped on the Notre Dame five-inch line and the six-yard line. Notre Dame's only real offensive i burst In the first half was a touch-Idown march late in the opening period climaxed by Elmer Angs-i man's 50-yard run and his smash I across from the one-foot line. Sub Fullback SUn Krivik dropkicked the first of four extra points. ! In the second period, Notre Dame ! recovered a Northwestern fumble and smashed 29 yards to its second j touchdown with Jim McGurk slash-;ing over from the two. i Notre Dame bowled 56 yards through the tiring Wildcats in the third period for a third score with , Floyd Simmons, recent transfer from St. Mary's Pre-Flight. hitting pa v dirt from the four, i In the final period. Sub Halfback Bill Gompers accounted for both : Irish touchdowns, tearing 32 yards on a pass interception for one and I snaring a pass from George Ratter-man for another on a play that covered 48 yards. !

Hartford 167 Asylum Street West Hartford 7 So. Main Street Princeton, N. J., Nov. 17. (AP.) Columbia lifted its smooth-working j football machine back on to the I winning track today, whipping a willing out outclassed Princeton team, 32-7. betore an estimated 18,000 who based in perfect football weather at Palmer Stadium. The Lions, knocked out of the ranks of the all-victorious by Penn only a week ago, scored in every period, twice on long gallops by Fullback Lou Kusserow, and had the situation well in hand all afternoon. Princeton staved off a shutout in the last 22 seconds when Dave Brown, fading back from the Lions' 32-yard line, shot a pass to Walter Goodrich, who took the ball at the 4 and sped across. It was the fourth Columbia victory over Princeton in 20 games between the two schools whose rivalry dates back to 1874, but it was the first road victory for the L.ions since uct. 13, 1941. Gene Rossides, the Lions' hipper-dipper flipper, passed for one touch- ; down and scored another on a 13-: yard romp that climaxed a 96-yard ; march, longest sustained drive of the day. Kusserow opened the scoring in the fifth minute of play when he scampered through a wide hole in j the right side of the Tiger line and sped 44 yards without , being ! touched. Late in the first period the Lions opened their 96-yard march after I throttling a Princeton drive that lhad carried from the Tiger 21 to Columbia's 4. i A 45-yard march led to Columbia's third touchddwn. also in the second period, with John Nork covering the last two yards. ! A pass interception gave Colum-i bia the ball on its 46 in the third I period and Rossides shot a 19-yard I pass to Kusserow who ran the remaining 35 yards easily. Then in the final quarter, the Lions smashed 88 yards for their last marker, scored by Walt Kon-dratovich from a yard out. Len Will kicked two extra points for the Lions but missed three i others. Columbia travelled 306 yards on the ground and 160 in the air, com pared to Princeton s 149 and 66.

First, a word about other football happenings on the Eastern seaboard. Did you notice that Harvard beat Brown, 14 to 7? You remember, of course,-that only a week ago Brown beat Yale, 20 to 7. Colonel Blaik had cause to frel about the Penn game, but the man who well might worry is Howie Odell. Did Yale lose to Coast Guard yesterday, you jask? No, nothing like that. The Elis won by 41 to 6, but the thing on Odell's mind is the Harvard contest two weeks hence. When the season started Harvard didn't have a game with Yale.

Not Just PROMPT Service Gengras Service Is As EXPERT As It Is Prompt Of course you want your car serviced promptly, but at the same time you want the job done by experts, experienced men who know their business. Now that's the happy state of affairs here at Gengras. Each one of our 20 automobile people is an expert, not one of them is a time waster. K4 ft! Jo Christian at Connecticut can sit back and enjoy life. His team concluded a dandy season yesterday by beating Boston TJ., 54 to 0. Christy doesn't have to fret over possible bowl invitations, And almost all of his fine squad will be back next season, along with several ex-servicemen who were Uconn stalwarts before the war. Getting back to Colonel Blaik and the Army team, perhaps the Colonel has good cause to fret a bit from now until the afternoon of December 1. That is the day Army plays Navy. The Midshipmen are all that stand between Army and a second successive year untouched by defeat or tie. Few major football teams since the forward pass came into the game have gone through two perfect seasons. The Cadets have something to shoot for. They should make it, too, but Navy cannot be taken too lightly. They've been looking mighty good the past two weeks. Blaik has more to worry about than he did in the Penn game, that's for sure. Indiana Tramples Over. Pitt Panthers by 19-0 Pittsburgh, Nov. 17. (AP.) The combination of the Pitt Panthers and the weather man couldn't stop Indiana's Hoosiers today and they rolled to a 19 to 0 victor over the outclassed Pitt team In the deep mud of the Panthers' big football bowl. It was the seventh straight victory and the eighth of a season marred only by an early season tie with Northwestern for the western conference leaders. Pitt, absorbing its sixth straight defeat, its fourth shutout and its 17th consecutive loss to Big Ten foes, never was able to give the Hoosiers a tussle. Car Skip Start Hard?

This growth is caused by two things: changing weather and the age of a tire. Growth of a tire is an important item to be considered before the tire is baked in recapping molds. Here is one of Jack's men measuring a Kraft Recap with large calipers to determine the growth of the tire from its original size. After the difference in size has been determined, then the adjustment is made in the mold. This eliminates bumps in the tire. Gives the tire balance and rolling smoothness.
