TWO TRUSTS. of the brethren who find enough to worry about In the Manchurian problem, the good old depression and the Winkler case, are wondering if football is beginning to run itaelf into the ground, basing their fears upon the consistent success of Northwestern and Notre Dame. They think if these two could meet every Satur- vDcrrsALL MS SSKU oef- tri DtcwiMS ITt OM ytAtl day, everything would be fine and dandy but that the practice setups other teams made for them are taking the wallop out of the game. Ralph Cannon doubts if there is any obvious reason why either team will ever slump again and since very few of the other universities can keep pace with them the question arises just' where do we go from here? "The popularity of the game depends upon normal competition, the wider the better, and certainly numerous big schools, euch as Penn State. Princeton, Cornell.

Chicago and Illinois and a hundred others, without some change of setup, have little prospect of ever again being in the class with the two superteams. they say, is the life of trade but college football seems to have drifted into a monopoly by a couple of trusts," Cannon stipes. AU of which may be true. But these thinge move In cycles. Rome undoubtedly, had few, If any, obvious reasons why it should slump, but it did.

The final score was 20 to 7, as Tulane achieved a decisive conquest before a crowd of 36,000 spectators. Except for a few dsEzUng moments of the third period when the red shlrted flashed their one scoring thrust, the battle of Athena was turned largely into a rout by the powerful and hardhitting aggregation that carried banner another big stride along the champion.sbip trail of 1931. The game was marred by to a record crop of penalties, as well as disturbances along the sidelines that threatened to develop free-for-all fist-fighting in the closing period. Engineered by the flashy Don Zimmerman, a triple threat halfback, Tulane's aerial attack accounted for the first two touchdowns tallied by ibe Green and put Georgia in a hole from which it threatened only once to escape. In the third period Georgia played Its one big hand.

With the ball on 40-yard line, Key faded back and tossed a long pass down the middle alley. Buster Mott grabbed the ball over his shoulder and outraced all tacklers to the corner of the field. Catfish Smith added the extra point on a perfect placeklck. It looked like a typical Georgia rally, but the Bulldogs were not equal to penetrating the closely- knit Tulane defense again. The next thrust thru the air was a boomerang as Francis Payne intercepted the ball deep in Georgia territory and raced to the Bulldog 20-yard line.

Shortly afterw'ard the green wave hit the red shirts with a final smashing Impact. Payne dashed off tackle twenty-six yards for the third touchdown, Zimmerman then booted the extra point and the door 'vjte Ben Seward high school eleven has been going great guns this season.

CHAMPIONt. Pop Klein's Crete Cardinals have that calm assurance of champions. They go about their work of winning football games in a business like manner. Against Lincoln high, the Crete elsven, using Coach Bible's offense, proved a coordinated machine but above all those rangy lads from Saline county have the desire to win. They gave each other plenty of punishment when something went wrong, one lad kicking his team mate in the seat of the pants and then turning so that the same lad could kick him.

They keep the fires blazing at all times. In Parllek, Klein has a shifty, broken field runner. In this instance of game, "broken field" is the absolute words for it as the Lincoln high grid has been plowed Thursday and harrowed Friday so that it was so soft that pimts, instead of bouncing, would wallow into It. NEBRASKA SUB RUNS SEVENTY YARDS TO GOAL (Continued from Page 1-A.) K-Aggie homecoming crowd of 14.0(H), who began filing out of the stadium and seeking shelter. It also made the ball even wetter and heavier and that nullified whatever passing attack the desperate K-Aggies could get started, although McMlllln managed to toss one for an 11-yard gain to Cronkite.

The Huskers were watching this rangy lad who last year raced saventy yards after taking a pass to nip the Huskers in much the same fashion that Brown did it Saturday. Tte big delegaUoD of Husker followers who came here on special trains and overland will be telUng their grandchildren about Brovm's run. And also relate something about the magnificent line play of the Husker forward wall. The Nebraskans had the K-Aggles bottled up badly, their best showing being in the second quarter. Husker Line Looks Good.

Ely, Rhea and a pair of reserve guards. Debus and Bishop, along with Gilbert and all the rest of them stayed in and fought the full sixty minutes. Koster was hurt in the third period and had to be carried from the field. He had been playing great ball but Bishop, his relief, and another pint sized player, was in all the plays. That sustained attack of the Huskers which traveled sixty- seven yards before it was stopped, started on the Husker 25-yard line just before the third period ended with a plunge of six yards by Masterson.

With Masterson and Sauer lugging, the latter doing most of the toting, the Nebraskans began what appeared to be the same sort of a gallop which carried them a touchdown victory over Iowa last week. But after making four yards in three plays, Masterson tried a pass which fell a trifle short of the receiver and Auker. whose punting had been keeping the Aggies out of holes all responded again. A second Husker offense fizzled and Sauer punted. Then it was that Brown came tearing in to replace Bauer.

The Aggea lost a yard on the next two plays and punted on third down, Auker failing to get his usual high spiral, it being a low ball. Paul ready to block for Brown, saw the ball coming to him and attempted to nab it but the greasy oval popped from his arms and a K-Aggie recovered on their own 42-yard line. Brown Takes Bail On Run. The Nebraska delegation gave up the ghost then but the Husker team Auker and McMillin failed at the line and Auker again punted, with about five minutes remaining. It should have been a punt that would have carried the ball deep into Husker territory.

It was another low kick. Brown, seeming to sense a chance for real runback took it on the dead nm on his 30-yard line. Then he began that trip down the sidelines. Following the touchdown, a low pass from center prevented Masterson from a chance to try place kick for the extra point, but this young man of destiny. Brown, who was trying to hold the ball attempted to rush it over but he was smothered before he could get started.

And having watched him just snatch a victory from them the K-Aggies were not gentle in the manner of smothering the Wisner youth. Statistics Favor Husker. day rain that stopped just before game time.

The Buckeyes earned a berth In second place in the conference standings by the victory and sent the Badgers down into the second division. A crowd of 36,000 saw the game, played on a wet field and in a heavy fog. A guard and tackle brought victory to the Buckeyes.

Despite the wet ball, however, the Buckeyes were successful In their aerial game. Cramer passed for several sizeable gains to Hinchman, one of which went for thirty- five yards to the Wisconsin line. At the start of the second half Rebholz brought the spectators to their feet with a 56-yard run.

He took the ball on the kickoff behind the goal and aided by good blocking, forged into the Buckeye territory.
