Irish Stanford Passes Overhaul Tiring Gophers, 13 to 0 Daring Aerial Attack Whips Battered Gophers in Last Quarter, as Cadel, Mof f att Score STANFORD STADIUM, Palo Alto, (U.R) The Stan ford Cardinals unleashed a daring aerial attack to defeat Minnesota university Saturday 13 to 0 in California s, first' big m-tersectional game of the year. The battered and weary Gophers offered little resistance in the fourth quarter, when the Cardinals dashed twice across their line for the only scores of the game. Minnesota fought yaliantly In the first three quarters and until the Stanford attack the game appeared destined to be a repetition of last year's Cardinal-Gopher scoreless tie. . Stanford threatened twice early in the second quarter, only to be denied a score when, passes fell incomplete over the goal line, but the breaks were with Coach Glenn "Pop" Warner's men and a fumble by Pete Somers, plunging Minnesota halfback, gave Stanford the ball on Minnesota's 21-yard line. Cadel Scores . Rallying quickly. "Dusty" Allen uncorked a 16-yard pass to Ernie Cadel and put the Indians on the Minnesota four-yard line. Capt. Harry Hillman carried It to the three-yard line Just as the third quarter ended. Minnesota, braced for the Stanford attack as the fourth quarter began, but a ' shifty reverse sent Cadel through the line . for a touchdown. Phil Moffatt place kicked for. the extra point. The Gophers offered little opposition as -Stanford opened up for another score. Working the ball down the field with a series of lateral and forward passes. Stanford took the ball to Minnesota's nine-yard line in the next five minutes. . ' Moffatt plunged and twisted his way across the goal line .for the other touchdown of the game.

About 23,000 attended. Ohio State, outplayed, outsmarted and .outlucked in the first half, came back game and fighting in the second half, scored 21 points while Vanderbilt marked time, and came near winning one of the most sensational games ever played in Ohio Stadium. - , The Southerners bewildered Ohio with a power attack - in- the first and second quarters. Their touchdowns came one-two-three-four while Ohio vainly tried to mix passes with running plays that gained ground. "When the two teams walked from the field at the half, Vanderbilt apparently basked m the glory of a 26 to 0 lead. . But when the two teams trotted on the field for the third period, Ohio State was different. Its plays functioned well and Vanderbilt couldn't gain. A substitute combination of Bill Carroll and Toledo Tommy Keefe raced its way to two touchdowns while Vanderbilt stood still. . - Dan. McGugin, the , strategist of the Commodores, stajted the second half with a sprinkling of substitutes who could not cope with Ohio's rejuvenated attack. Carroll scored first for Ohio and McGugin sent in his strongest lineup. That didn't stop Keefe, who soon crossed the line, with only a few minutes to play. Lew Hinchman fought his way to Ohio's third score, the game ended - before Ohio could muster strength for what would have been the winning points - Bob Haubrich, Ohio's dependable lineman, , kicked three perfect placements for extra points Ohio tried 16 forward passes, had four" intercepted, one for, a touch down. Eleven were incomplete, and only one was good. , Vanderbilt tried three passes, all grounded. The summary: OHIO STATE Poa. TAUfDEBBIIT fen-all Baamsartesi Varner Smith.

Only Once, But Maintain Offensive ROSS-ADE BOWL, Lafayette, Ind., U.R) . An aerial attack which for a few short devastating moments routed the Illinois defense in the secod period, gave Purdue university a 7-0 victory, in its first Big Ten conference game of the season, here Saturday. With 20,000 persons watching, a record-breaking Dad's Day crowd, the Boilermakers carried the offensive throughout the struggle, getting Inside the Illinois 10-yard line several times. Only once, however, did Purdue show the driving punch to score. . Hecker-to-Moss unloosed a passing combination at the opening of the second period which took the ball In four consecutive plays from Purdue's 30-yard line : to Illinois' eight-yard marker, from where it jjas converted into' a touchdown by Moss', seven-yard run, and Yunevich's one-yard plunge. Heck- r kicked the extra point. t Only once during the first quarter did Purdue attempt to pass. That was a throw from White to Risk, which netted 12 yards, and cost Purdue the services of Risk for the remainder of the half because of an injury. Illinois Passes Fail -After the whirlwind passing game which gave Purdue its score, Illinois tried the same lactics, but without success. . ' The only serious threat by the Illini came early in the third period, when Purdue failed . to get the ball away from the danger-line after a punt, and it went to Illinois on Purdue's 17-yard line.; -c Illinois completed one pass but It wasn't good for first down and the Boilermakers marched - down the field from their nine-yard point, starting with a 15-yard run by Paul Pardonner, substitute quarterback. Yunevich, veteran fullback, hroke loose for the longest run of the game, 44 yards, to threaten the Illini goal, but Hecker lost 15 yards on a . pass, and the ball was in safer territory. - Purdue Lacks Pnnch Purdue made several good gains through the line, but never after the second period was able to penetrate it when only a few yards meant a score. The Illini fought back from their one-yard line, their three-yard line, and their six-yard line, all on first downs, to keep the tally down.

The score was too close to give Coach Kipke any particular pleas ure, and surprised the experts, who had picked the Wolverines to win handily. Chicago played heads up football in the third period, but was not impressive otherwise, except that it managed to keep its heavier and more experienced foe in check a good part of the aft ernoon. , - Wolves Wait For Breaks Known as a team that waits for the breaks, Michigan lived up to its reputation. The accurate pass ing of Harry Newman, however, had considerable to do with the matter of scoring. Both touch downs : coming about aerial plays star ted by him, .-, - :v;; r- ? ' Michigan got Its first break , in the second period, when Birney, after signalling for a fair catch of a punt, dropped the hall and La Jenunesse recovered for the Wol verines on Chicago's 20-yard line, Newman snappei. a pass to Jack Heston, on the seven-yard line and Stan Fay scored from there on an end run. r : A blocked kick recovered on the Maroons' 17-yard line put MiChi gan in scoring position a few minutes later the boys worked the ball to the 10-yard line, after which Newman passed to Hudson," who went over unmolested for the second touchdown. Newman placekicked the extra point. Maroons Score On Pass . Chicago took charge of the play in the third, and after Tipping downfield, with Bob Wallace tak ing the lead, reached Michigan's 37-yard line. From there Wallace stepped back and tossed a pass which Zimmer caught on the 25-yard line for Chicago's , lone touchdown. Hamberg converted After this brief rally Chicago sub sided and Michigan again assumed charge, keeping the Maroons in check for the rest of the after noon. . . V ..- . Michigan eained seven first. downs , to three for Chicago, but gained only 36 yards more from scrimmage tnan am tne Maroons. On Its 17 attempted nasses.

The Cards, led by Andy High, flashy third baseman, scored two runs off two hits and an error in the first inning. George Watkins home tun in the third brought 1n two more. : ; "Ufapla Ballv in 9th The Cards then seemed positive ly destined to the victory they ul timatelv achieved. Meantime, old Burleigh Grimes was etraeking the ball past the ele phant batsmen. Almost never was he in' dancer.' His work lacked the polish it had when he limited the Atheltics to two hits in the third game. His control was often completely gone but the old master fooled the oroud Athletic batsmen in to swinging at bad ones, and was almost never in trouble. Not until the ninth inning ' did the Athletics score and the two runs tallied then came almost as an aftermath of the game itself which was as good as won when the Cards got their four run lead. Because the Cards haa oeen so little figured as. possible winners Saturday, this .game became the strangest .of an already freaky series. The Cardinal fans who had cheered 1 themselves hoarse . over the victory in the second game; played here, and .who yelled themselves: groggy before the start of Friday's debacle, were a strangely silent crowd as Saturday's game got, underlay. The spirits of the spectators were as drooping as the world series bunting hung about the grandstands. Even the band, which played before the game, was unable to awaken any pep. When they frequently played "Happy Days Ahe Here Again," one rooter -yelled "Ah, Nuts!" and that was the. way everyone felt.1 It was a matter of a lamb' being led to slaughter,' of a nervous club tighter, meeting the reigning champion. Card Fans Delirious But when the Cards displayed that upper hand, the crowd ' was electrified. They ; hung on every pitch. They booed the balls called against Grimes, tand the, strikes called for Earnshaw. And when the final out was made they fairly tumbled onto the field and danced. Deliriously happy as they were, the Cardinal rooters had one re gret. Their hero and the world's current baseball hero had failed them.
