AUKER SCORES FOR K-A6S Breaks Loose on Fake Punt and Races Eighty Yards for Lone Wildcat Touchdown. AMES. la. An Iowa State football team rnme back .Saturday from the depths of a three year dPHpondenry to make a bid for the Big Six championship by defeating the prevlouRly undefeated Kansas Agglea 7 to 6. A plareklck from the toe of Dick Orefe, lanky young halfback, after Kenneth Wells had gathered in a pass for a touchdown, was the margin that sent the Aggies into th* ranks of the vanquished conference elevens. Nebra.ska, the Gyclones’ only remaining Big Six foe. is the only other undefeated eleven in the conference. The Kansans outgalned Iowa State consistently from scrimmage. making 393 yards to the Cyclones’ 83. but the veteran Cyclone line folded over the Aggie.< backfield when the goal line wn.s In sight and gave the dependable Roger Bowen, quarterback, a chance to kick the ball out of danger. Twice the Cyclone forw’ards had their feet on their own goal line and turned back the Aggies. The invaders scored first in the initial period when Eldon Auker broke thru his left tackle and raced eighty yards to a touchdown. His try for the extra point that would have resulted In a tie was wide. The Cyclones, aided by a break, counted their winning points in the second period. A me* Scores on Pase. With the ball on the Aggie 44- vard line. Shafroth heaved a long pass forty yards to Wells. Auker tried desperately to knock down he throw but Just tipped the ball, knocking it into the hands of the Cyclone end who raced to the goal line ten yards away. The Aggie eleven threatened early in the third period when it took tho klckoff and marched down the field to the Cyclone 4-yard line. The Cyclone line stopped Wiggins on three succe.s- slve thrusts and then tossed Auker for a nine yani loss on the final down. In the final period the Aggies startetl hammering the Cyclone line again and made two drives that flivvered as the goal line drew near. Grefe. Wells and Bowen all shared in the glory of the Cyclone triumph while the line, despite its erratic .showing in midfleld, held remarkably when threatened. The Kansans played without the services of Ralph Graham, star fullback, whom Coach Bo McMillin left at home l>ocause of injurie.s. Aukcr's sensational run and the lonsistent gains of Wiggins and McMillin featured the Aggie play. Cyclone passing resulted in forty-eight yards of gains, all but eight of this coming in the long ^^hot that scored the touchdowm. The Aggies used only a few passes and completed none. The Aggies counted sixteen first dvnvns from scrimmage, while Iowa State made three from scrimmage and one on a pass.

The University of Oklahoma won its first Big Six conference game of the year Saturday, defeating the University of 10 to 0, before a wildly enthusiastic homecoming crowd of 16,000.

The reaction to which in certain quarters in Lincoln was that perhaps the urge for a game at Omaha came from Creighton sources. While Creighton heads have made no secret cf their desire to schedule the Cornhtiskers in past years. I stand ready U j absolve the Hilltoppers from having present aspirations along that line. The folks at Creighton undoubtedly realize that this is the year of all years in which the Blue jays would be hopelessly outclassed in a joust with the scarlet-clad Huskers. A gridiron clash this fall between the Jays and the BIblemen could have but one result, to->^it: A thrashing for Creighton that would be a crushing blow to the Bluejays’ pride. In the circumstances, which includes taking the 1931 record into a general accounting, I vow it would require nothing short of a high-powered tractor to drag the Hilltoppers Into signing on the line for an argument with Nebraska U. MICHIG AS STOPS ISDIASA 22 TO 0 DROPKiCKS FOR POINT BY BILL KING. CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (.P*. After being checked for fifty-six minutes by a band of hard fighting Dartmouth Indians Saturday, Captain Barry Wood rallied his stumbling forces just long enough to put over a touchdown with one of his amazing aerial miracles and then drop- kicked the vital point that gave the undefeated Crimson a 7-6 victory. Four Harvard scoring thrusts had been turned back by the valiant Indians and there was but four minutes unplayed when Wood opened a determined pverhead attack on Dartmouth’s 38-yard line. He attempted two short heaves that were grounded and drew a five yard penalty. Another toss was rufned and on fourth down he ran wide to the right on the 45- yard line and whipped a long, straight pass that Carl Hageman caught on the 10-yard line, far beyond the Green’s efficient overhead defense. Hageman was unchallenged as he ran over the Dartmouth goal line and Wood coolly booted the winning point. During these few seconds the Harvard team clicked for the first and only time in the game. It got off to a slow start and Dartmouth put over its touchdown early. After its acting captain, Quarterback Morton recovered John Sche(Continued on Page 7-A.)

The Wolverine .scoring .started in the tirst quarter with two point.s for a safety after Williamson. Michigan right end, blocked a punt. Hudson made a long run on the next play and then Stan F.ay taccd twtnty yards for the first MicTi' touchdown. Harry Newman whose liiffei- ence.s with Harry Kipke, Michigan coach, temporarily lost him his quarterback job, accounted for the other two Michigan scores, being the hurler of two to Williamson and Hewitt. Tho Wolverines were foimd guilty of numerous infractions of the rules and their penalties were heavy. Indiana’s sole first down was the result of a Michigan penalty.

I am informed from reliable sources that the committee in charge of Omaha’s community chest fund dr'.ve labored under the impression that a portion of any profit a Cornhusker charity game I might earn was to be diverted to i Lincoln’s community chest, where- I fore Omaha wished to have a slice for its own fund.

Notre Dame’s football hurricane swept the Quakers from Pennsylvania right into a storm cellar Saturday and buried them there under the debris of an astounding 49 to 0 defeat. The one-sided triumph for the "Fighting Irish,” which boosted their long victory string to twenty- five in twenty-six combats, came after probably the best display of offensive power ever witnessed on the home battlefield. Holding the Quakers without much effort except for a mild threat that carried to their 33-yard line at the start of the third period, the men j of Notre Dame scored almost at wdll. If ever the critics agreed that Notre Dame of 1931 was on an even, or better par with the undefeated elevens of 19Z9 and 30, and the immortal four horsemen of 1924, it was Saturday. After the first period, the great Penn line sagged and wavered, unable to stop the fury of the South Bend hurricane of the gridiron. Official statistics show the yawning chasm of class between the two today. From the line of scrimmage alone, the Irish backs gained 390 yards to but 30 for the Quakers, while the variance in first downs was 16 to 3 in Notre Dame’s favor. Schwartz Starts Scoring. It was the one and dbly Mr. Marchmont Schwartz who started the Notre Dame victory march. After a few thrusts, which saw the Quaker ends fall out of order, Schwartz took the ball on a de- laye buck and smashed the Quaker ramparts thru his own right tackle for sixteen yards and a touchdown. Joe immediately followed by breaking thru the same spot for forty-six yards and another score. Then Schwartz dropped back and heaved a long pass to Jaskwhich, who forged over from the Penn 13-yard line for the third touchdown. Koken started the paiade of the seconds by sprinting seventeen yards around his own right end to cross the (^aker goal and a few minutes later flipped a pass over the center of the line to host from the Penn 11-yard stripe for still another tally.

The Tech win threw the Trans- Missouri conference race into a muddled situation, with Lincoln, Tech and St. Joseph still rating champion.khip considefallon. Tech scored on the first play from .scrimmage when Shurkarap waded thru the Lincoln defense and blocked Getsler’s punt. The hall bounded bark over the goal line where Shurkamp fell on it lor a touchdown. Hamann placekicked the extra point. Lincoln came back in a bewildered condition and Tech had Ihing.s all to Itself for the entire half. The second touchdown came midway in the second period when Don DeVoe crashed over the final line after a aeries of plunges and end run.s featuring DeVoe and Harry Frisch, shifty fullback. DeVoe attempted a placektck for the extra point, but It hit the bar and bounded out into the playing field. Lincoln Has Hard Luck. Lincoln made one valiant attempt to score In the fourth quai^. ter after the Red and Black had partially recovered from the .sudden shock. A Tech punt rolled over the goal line for a touchoack, and the Ballermen opened up with the lateral pass attack which counted for the win over Grand I.sland week. The Capital City team drove to the Omaha 35-yard line, but Prerost intercepted Hawkins’ pass on the Tech 15-yard line and ran it back q^ne yards to end the scoring threat. Lincoln ran into considerable hard luck both before and during the game. Bob Ray, center, was tak(ni ill after arriving at Omaha Saturday morning anil spent the forenoon in bed. Dick Smith, regular tackle, replaced Ray iu tha starting lineup, but the seven weeks layoff since he took up the tackle duties made him riLsty and bad i)Hsses were frequent. Ray went m as the second quarter started and fini.shed the game. Bill Kulper’a groin injury was severely aggravated two plays before the end of the half, and the sophomore flash was carried off the field, Kulper may miss the Crete game next week as a result of the Injury. Dawdy Hawkins, who reinjured his knee Friday in practice, played three periods with a noticeable limp. Baldwin was« removed from the game as the third period ended when he rein­ jured his wrenched knee. Tech was playing the best brand of football exhibited thus far this season. Harry Frisch compiled the average of nine yards plus every time he carried the ball. He carried it seventeen times for a total of 158 yards, while DeVoe carried it ten times for sixty yards, a 6-yard average. Few Penalties. ' The game was noticeably free from penaltie.s, especially for a Tech-Llncoln affair, which usually packs many yards in penalties. Tech drew a 15-yard penalty for (Continued on Page 6-A.) Marquette Whips W. & J. 13-6 for Fifth Victory MILWAUKEE. (UP.) Marquette university scored its fifth victory of the season by defeating Washington and Jefferson, 13 to 6, before a homecoming crowd of 14,000. Two costly fumbles robbed Marquette of a chance for a more decisive victory. The Hill Toppers lost the ball on the one foot line in the third period and on the 3-yard line in the final quarter. A pass, Ronzani to Elliott, gave Marquette its first score in the third period. After several punt.s had been exchanged in the final quarter, Becker blocked a kick and ran twenty yards for Marquette’s seconti touchdown.
