IOWA STOPS WISCONSIN IOWA OFIY, Iowa UP) —Undefeated Iowa had its great big hands full Saturday in pulling out a 217 victory over Wisconsin in an exciting Big Ten football duel. Wisconsin, the early season surprise in the conference with a 2314 triumph over Purdue, made the defending Big Ten .champs'heusfle every minute. A 44-yard dash down the sidelines by Bill Gravel with an intercepted* pass early in the fourth fourth-ranking team 34-13. While 69,619 fans cheered the two-touchdown underdog Illini and millions'of others watched on the national TV hookup, Coach Ray Eliot's upset-minded team, deluged the Gophers, 21-0, by halftime, and-maintained the pressure to hand them first defeat in four starts. In'gaining its second triumph, in four games, Illinois duplicated its homecoming ambush of last year when it trimmed Michigan State, then the nation's No. 1 team, 20-13, in one of the season's biggest surprises. Mitchell, a 180-ound senior Mitchell a, WO" 0 * «™J auarter provided Iowa wicn its in- from Hot Springs, Ark., who won - |]ran ^ tou _ hdowi , Bob Pre wcott all-Big Ten honors as a sophomore and was hobbled, with injuries in 1S56, time and again split-the big Minnesota defenses with his eel-like runs. <, And while the Gophers were trying to contend with Mitchell's slipperiness, a 205-pound junior halfback from Chicago, Jack Delveaux, riddled them down the middle and quarterback Tom Haller, a junior from Lockport, 111., harassed them with passes. Delveaux scored twice in the surance touchdown. Bob Prewcott made his third 'straight conversion and Iowa led 21-7 much to the comfort of a record Iowa crowd of 58,047 homecomers. Wisconsin, which had pulled into a 7-7 tie in the third period with a touchdown on a blocked Iowa punt, tossed two threats in the fourth 'period and these died a pleasant death for the Iowa fans on the 16 -and 19 yard line respectively. Iowa drove and passed 75 yards Ten at 158 pounds, nearly lifted the winless Wildcats to a stunning, upset. The -squad speedster, who stands only 5-feet-4 scored one touchdown and. set'up. another as the Wildcats struck twice in the third period and sent a scare through the Michigan crowd. Sounded by the Northwestern comeback, Michigan changed back for a tie-breaking touchdown and Byers accounted for 51 of the 64 yards in the decisive. drive. ' Van Pelt, who insisted on playing although he was scheduled to sit out the. contest, passed to halfback Jim Pace for the final seven yards- and moments later raced six yards for an insurance touchdown after the Wildcats'l last ditch gamble fired. Byers carried the ball seven plays out of 1& as Michigan punched across the decisive touchdown. Michigan's superior over-all strength showed in the last period of play and Byers, who has been playing behind the injured Joohn Herrnstein and Gene Sisinyak, rip- pec the Wildcat line apart. . Northwestern, taking its fourth straight beating, tried gamely to fight back once more. After Michi- gai. drove to the Wildcat one only to lose the ball on a fumble, quarterback John, Talley passed from his own end zone but halfback Ron Burton fumbled and Michigan got the ball on the 14. Two plays later Van Pelt boot- leigged the last six yards down the sideline for a touchdown. With less than a minute remaining after a poor Northwestern kick, Michigan's reserves applied the crusher with sophomore halfback Al Groce plunging over from the one'.

Haller's jump pass of 10 yards to Bob Delaney set up Delveaux's eventual 1- yard scoring blast. Four minutes later, Mitchell recovered halfback Bill Martin's fumble on the Gopher 28. Mitchell 'wormed his way 18 yards' on the next play. Then Delveaux drilled over from the 10. •At the -outset of the • second quarter, Mitchell's 1-yard touchdown smash ended a 53-yard BUni thrust in 9 plays. Mitchell's mercurial scampers of 116 and 9 yards set the props. . The Illini kept it up j in the third quarter, scoring again in the first seven minutes on a 69-yard frolic in 14 downs that included 4 Hafler aerials good for 62 yards. Haller's 23-yard pitch to Capt. Dale Smith made way for Smith's final 2-yard touchdown plunge. Five minutes later,, the- Illini scored again on the game's most sensational pass play. A poor 18- yard punt by the Gophers set Illinois in motion on the Minnesota 4/7. Mitchell's running carried to the 21, but a holding infraction-set the Ulini back. Then Haller found end Ron Hill on the clear near the sidelines. He rifled the ball to Hill on th e 5. Hill juggled it momentarily, then lugged it over the..goal line. Against second and third stringers, Minnesota struck through the air for two touchdowns' in the last quarter. Bobby Cox passed 16 yards to Dave ^indblom for the first TD. Then, third string quarterback Jim Reese, hit Jerry Friend -with a li^yard scoring toss. Mike Hagler'got the score" on a seven- yard end sweep. After fumbles and an interception thwarted any second period scoring, Wisconsin got its tie when John Mocera's punt was -blocked by Jim Heineke. The ball squirted •back to the three, was scooped back of the goal line in a scramfo- ;e and Jon Hobbs fell upon it in another melee. Iowa bounced right back for a 14-7 lead with a 75-yard parade, covering the distance in six play Horn put a spectacular finish on the excursion with a 35ryard burst through the 'middle, the fullback carrying two Badgers with him the last five yards.

Wilbur Young, state superintendent of public instruction, said the 180 schools with football' teams reported 10,337 boys on their squads, including 9,754 in the 160 schools where' Kidmant.football, is played. Others use teams of six or eight men. • Squads range from 200 at Bv- ansville Bosse to 22 at Jasoiwille, and the schools use as many as eight coaches. Young, who was once a' tackle on the Hanover College football team, said • 'Schools ar broadening participation and reaching a maximum number ' of' .players. •Over the years, I har/e seen a concerted effort on the part "of coaches and school administrators to make football a safer sport." Bob Keely. But, Quinn said, there will be a statement on' them "within the next two weeks." This was 'taken as an indication that some coaching changes might be in the works. There have been rumors that Ryan, for one, will not b e around next spring. He and Haney did not see eye during the last campaign. Root, a pitching great when he was with the Chicago Cubs,.is said to be thinking of retiring from the game. He is 58. H a n e y succeeded Charlie Grimm as manager of the Braves with the club in fifth' place on June 1/7, 1956. The team immediately ran off 11 consecutive victories and appeared to be a shoo in' for the pennant. A late season .fold-up cost them the 'flag by one game to Brooklyn. The Braves of '57 took over first place on- July 18 and never surrendered- it. Haney knew at the start it would .be a make or break season for him and that's the way he played It.
