(Up) Mighty Michigan had to hat-tie for its life Saturday to scratch out a 28-20 victory over a fighting Illinois team. Eiid Harry Allis, a 20-year-old sophomore, and sheer luck Were the biggest factors in Michigan's triurhph over a team which amazed the 85,938 hornecohiinK fans! It was Michigan's 20th Consecutive win. Officials called three personal foals- two against Michigan end one against Illinois as Michigan linemen mixed briefly w Hh the mini during the closing minute. The teams played on even terms r m the first half, but the Wolverine Juggernaught rolled; to j two markers in the third period for the victory margin. Allis made all of Michigan's extra points and did most of the punting. He caught a 45-kard pass from Chuck Ortmann for a fourth-quarter touchdown. Walt Teninga, Pete Elliott j and ' Leo Koceski rotated the ball-fcar-ryini chores in the second period for a 99-yard drive, climaxed by a touchdown pass; from Elliott to Wingman Ed McNeill. j, Illinois lashed back with an aerial attack by Paul Patterson. Quarterback B e r n i e Krueger's f four-down heave to Patterson! was goodi on the 10-yard line. Then Patterson swept around end to score). In the third period, Churck prt-mann tossed three mighty passes to End Dick Rifenburg, Leo iKo-reski and finally to Rifenburg (into the end zone for a touchdown. Illinois capitalized on the breaks a ' few minutes later when iJim Valeljr., end, intercepted Moceiski's pass i on the Michigan 26. Two plays later. Krueger tossed to Tony Klimek in the end zone. In the same period, Michigan's Al Wahl recovered Patterson's fumble on the mini 28. Ortmann tossed to Rifenburg on the one Teninga raced around end for the score. Krueger plunged for another touchdown from one foot on in the final quarter to narrow Michigan's lead to 21-20, but Allis caught a 45-yard pass from Ort mann later for the final score MICHIGAN (SI. tlfenburg.

Mill (41 i i on.i Gallagher IOWA CITY Iowa used 27 players to beat Wisconsin. 19-13, here Saturday. Every one of them contributed to the triumph, and we don't mean to .take any credit away from the other 17. But just for the moment, won't you permit us to stick out our chest a little bit about the eastern Iowa crowd. Being from Cedar Rapids, we take a little pride in calling attention to the contributions made by 10 men from our home '..- city ana immediate vicinity. . . ..... w., ., Doran galloped 49 yards tor one touchdown, its Bob Hoff caused a three-yard loss for Wisconsin at his position late in the game, and its Lou Ginsberg operated at right guard until he was injured. From the university's home town, Iowa City, came Don Fryauf, with strong f running during touchdown drives Nos. 1 and 3; Don Winslow, with a much-improved second half that fi- ' nally nailed Wisconsin on its last try; and Bill Greene, with a defensive tackle that also held off the Badgers in the clutch. Elkader folks must be pleased as punch over the showing of Jack Dittmer and Glenn Drahn. Dittmer's acrobatic catch speared the; winning touchdown. Drahn choked off one Wisconsin threat with an interception, once drove them back to the wall with a punt out of bounds on the six. Ron Headington, Decorah's gift to the team, furnished placekicking and lineback-ing and was usually the first man down the field under his own kickoffs. Mesrl Naber of Tipton, up to the time he hurt hia shoulder, was one of the strongest runners on the field. I pad So much for the men in and near Cedar Rapids. Add thj work of 11 performers from Iowa cities like Mason City, Davenport, Sioux City, Waterloo, Fort Dodge, Des Moines, and Walnut, plus six out-of-state players, and you get the victory total. Iowa is now a part of the big traffic jam in the Big Nine race tied for third place with Minnesota, Ohio State, and Indiana. This victory will help to preserve Coach Eddie Anderson's record of always winning at least two conference games a season. His teams have done it seven times. No other coach has done It even once since 1933 at Iowa. a . a For the second straight week, Wisconsin found heartbreak on the opponents' six-yard line. The week before the Badgers were headed for the winning touchdown at Ohio State but fumbled on the six with a minute to play. t aa , Conversation with a Raccoon Coat A week ago at an Iowa game this reporter discerned a mysterious, fur-bearing spectator which proved to be a throwback to a past generation a raccoon coat waving a pennant on the end of a stick. At the same time Don Padilla of The Gazette photography staff detected this anachronistic fashion-plate and snapped his picture. It appeared in Monday's' editions of The Gazette. But now there's real news! Mr. Raccoon Coat has been heard from. He's Jack Sward, a Chicagoan and a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity at the University of lows. The coat had been in his family attic for years, he confessed, but this was the first time he had worked up enough nerve to wear it. The results have been sensational, Sward reports. If he has his way the Iowa stadium of the future will be populated by hordes of deceased raccoons. Did Sward have any trouble getting the coat out of the family closet? "Shucks, no. I told Dad I was going to wear the coat for his sake. He was a Sig Ep here in 1918 and I'm trying to get more Sig Eps to dig up their dads' raccoon coats and break out in 'em. It ought to be a tradition." How long had it been since the coat had been worn? "Oh. 1$, 20 years. 4 I don't know." How many moths flew out of captivity when It was brought out? "Oh. none at all. It had been protected." How long has the coat been in the family? "About 50 years. Grandfather Wore it first, and handed It down to dad. Grandfather trapped it in North Dakota, near the Canadian border." Does it make, the wearer feel conspicuous? "Yes, it attracts a lot of attention. But I think we need something like thai a revival of college traditions, something to keep us in front of the public. We had planned a dance Saturday night called the Ballet Bounce, a takeoff on the coming election. We invited Sen. Hickenlooper, Sen. Wilson, and Mr. Beardsley, the candidate for governor. They said they couldn't make it." Sward, who is 22, a junior in engineering and a veteran of 18 months with the paratroopers said he found the coat quite heavy "8 to 10 pounds" but worth the extra weight "I'll never freese," he added. As yet, no one has offered to revive the Charleston. '- - r ' ' . 1 i MM Sooners Rip Cyclones on Returns, 33-6 Statistics.

IOWA CITY Iowa's embattled Hawkeyes spotted Wis consin a 13-point edge, stormed back in the second half to take the lead, and then saved the game; with 50 seconds to play in a football thriller here Saturday.

A smairt, shifting defense crossed Wisconsin up in the second half after the Badgers had crowded Iowa's ground forces for 130 yards! by rushing in the fin it part of the game. It took a lot of plays to win the tame. But first hear about the play: that saved it, with 50 seconds left. On its; six-yard line, fourth down, Iowa lined up in the 5-B defense it had been using most af the game.: Wisconsin sized this up, appointed blockers to take care qf each man. and called for Bop Petruska to carry the ball on p run around the Iowa left end. Just before the ball w a js snapped, Iowa suddenly shifted tp a six-mart line, giving it one ex-tra player Wisconsin blockers hadn't plotted against. As thfs baU was snapped Don WinsloW, left tackle, shot through the open slot and tihrew Petruska for a 10-yard loss;. Iowa took the baB there and wasted one play till the end of the game.
