A victory for Green Bay, defending champion, would throw the two teams into a tie for the western leadership, each with 5 victories and 2 defeats. A Bear triumph, on the other hand, practically would settle the race in that sector, aa the Packers alone appear capable of giving Coach George Halas’ juggernaut any real trouble. In romping over Pitlaburgh, 24 to 3. last week. Green Bay again looked like the brilliant outfit it was last season when it «wept thru the west and then beat the Giants in the playoff. The Packers lead the league in yards gained on passes, total yards gained and In first downs. The Bears, however, top all nine rivals in yards gained rushing, and their flock of fine ball carriers tore the Giant« defense apart Sunday. Thl.i figures to be one of the campaign’s clo.scat and most bitterly fought contests. Giants at Brooklyn. The battle between the Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers at Eb- beta field probably does not compare with the western conflict in Importance, but it would be difficult to convince the fans of this locality of the fact. Tickets have been at a premium for several days, despite the fact that Brooklyn hasn’t won a game from the Giants since 1930. At the moment Brooklyn Is in second place in the eastern group, with 4 wins and 2 losses; the Giants third with 3 won, 2 lost and 1 tied. Neither appears to have much chance of finishing on top, however, aa long as the Washing* ton Redskins keep their health and refuse to lose a game or two. Jock Does Good Job. The feeling around Brt>oklyn is that Jock Sutherland, who produced such a succession of great teams at Pittsburgh university, has done the profes.slonal league’s outstanding job of coaching on the Dodgers this year, and hopes are high in for a victory over the Giants. Washington, with Sammy Baugh flinging passes and Dick Todd running thither and yon, should score its seventh straight victory at the expense of Pittsburgh, which still is seeking its second win. Detr 9 it and Whizzer White will be favored to outscore Cleveland in the western division’s other contest. FITZGERALD, Ga. (.’PI. Fullback Willie Matthews, a speedy player on the Fitzgerald high school eleven, broke clear from hi« own 20 yard line and raced 80 yard« across the Albany high school’s goal line in a game here Friday night. But—as Willie galloped, the lights went out. Officials ruled: No light, no play. Albany won, 20-0. Cwoidpu top . •. Lost and Found Bureau! To Finders and Losers .. .

(Continued from Page 1-B.) few steps that spun him loose from the arms of the Gophers’ safety man, George Franck, and wheeled down the sideline« for the touchdown. Clawson missed the try for extra point by inche.s, but the jubilant Northwestern rooter« paid little mind, sure their boys were out to run up a score. Gophers Show Power. The remainder of the first period was nothing more than a show of the old Minnesota pow'er. Starting from their own 39-yard line, the Gophers’ pulverizing machine went into action. Bruce Smith would hit one tackle, then Bob Sw'elger would hit the other. After that Franck would poun i here and there in the line. Slowly, relentle.ssly, with an action similar to that of a glacier, the Gophers moved down the field. In 17 plays they went 60 yards and the end of the period found them 1 yard short of a touchdown. On the first play of the second period Swelger pounded thru for the score and Mernik came In to kick the point that was to mean the difference between victory and a tie. Minnesota barely missed another touchdown in this second quarter when, after a drive led by the brilliant Franck had carried to the Northwestern 15-yard line. Quarterback Warren Plunkett dropped a pass which hit him squarely in the chest as he stood in the end zone. The Gophers didn’t miss the next time they started toward the payoff line. Starting from their own 46, again with Franck aa the spearhead, they moved along the ground until Northwestern’s 15- yard line was reached. Then Franck, who did everything except play in the band, rifled a perfect to Bill Johnson on the Wild- cata’ 2-yard «tripe. Sweiger Drives Over, The mighty Swelger whacked the center of the line for the score, climaxing a drive that went 54 yards in ten plays. Minnesota now appeared to be in full charge, but the Wildcat was only playing possum. Inspired, the light but mobile Northwe.stm line lifted and hurled back the mammoth Gopher forwards for an 80 yard advance. The third period ended with Northwestern on the 1-yard line, fourth dowm, goal to go. As the teams changed sides, Hahnenstein gathered his strength and on the first play of the quarter, he drove, pounded, lunged and squirmed thru the massed Gophers for a touchdown. Benson was nervous when he dropped back to try for the extra point. He missed it, and the charge of the Light Brigade had gone for naught. With a one point deficit to overcome, the W’ildcats gave their all. taking to the air as recklessly as a combat pilot. But they couldn’t make it, and Minnesota took its third Big Ten scalp and turned its thoughts to Michigan and Tommy Harmon next w'pck- LOST - Oold frame gUese* between O and B on 10th.

Harvard’s underdog football forces held a favored Princeton team to a sroreless tie Saturday before a drenched crowd of 15,0<>0, on« of the smallest to witness a "Big Three" battle in Harvard stadium. As the mud ruined most of Dave Allerdice’s passes and put leg iron.s on such consistent ground gainers a.s Bob Peters and Bob Jackson, the Tigers failed on the game’s only .scoring chance. That chance did not come until late in the third period after Harvard’s Franny Lee carried a punt from his 5 to his 20, where he WHS hit so hard he fumbled and Bill Morris.
