That was the day a battered band of Badgers, pushed all over the gridirons of the Big Ten Conference for most of an injury-plagued season, pulled themselves together for one last magnificent effort and bowed out with a 14-7 upset of Minnesota. They did it with the combination of a savage defense which held Minnesota to seven first downs and an effective running game led by 'Warm' Finale SCORING Minnesot* 0 7 Wisconsin 7 0 0-14 . plunge Minn—Farthing. 43, lateral trom.Bank- Wls—Kurek, .1, plunge {Kaye kick), inson (Reed ^klck).

Solid Marg 'in That proved a solid Irish margin, although Iowa scrapped ferociously in the penalty-peppered contest which saw Iowa passing star Gary Snook never quite able losses every time he had the Hawkeye attack seemingly on the move. Snook wound up with only eight completions on 21 passes for 77 yards. The game, in which the chilled linemen wore gloves, had feeling running high throughout, but outside of one brief squareoff between Notre Dame's 262 - pound Kevin Hardy and Iowa's 186-pound Ivory McDowell, there was no real bid blood.

The State Conservation Department estimated that the hunting pressure for the open down the number of hunters ing day was generally down who participated Saturday in 50 per cent from the season's —Journal-Times Photo Charles Weiler, Union Grove, watched as patrolman Thomas Cable, checked his deer, the first one of the season at the Burlington police station. It was checked in just before 8 a.m. Weiler shot the forked buck three miles south of Burlington. opening last year. However, the department said most stations reported a good deer kill although no totals were compiled. The heaviest concentration of hunters was in the west- central part of the state with 30-40 hunters per square mile of deer range. Hunting pressure in the northeast was down 50 per cent, with only five hunters per square mile in Iron County. The department said its variable quota plan may have contributed to a 30 per cent increase in hunting pressure in the northwestern part of the state. Under the new plan, groups of four or five men can shoot one extra deer by buying a $5 license. Hunting pressure also was up in southwestern Wisconsin near the Mississippi River. Below zero temperatures greeted hunters who got up at dawn to try their skills. This forced many out of the woods before long to seek the warmth of their autos or camps. Temperatures moved into the 12-15 degree range later on and lured a few more into the woods. In the northwest, there was plenty of tracking snow and many spots had good visibility. The department said it expects more hunters out today if the weather is not too cold and if driving conditions remain good. downs, for one season — eight — and Huarte the author of most touchdowns in a season, rushing or passing, 18. The arctic wind also affected Huarte's passing game as he tried only 10 and completed four for 112 yards. Eddy, with 92 yards on 17 carries and Wolski with 69 for 18 tries, led the decisive ground attack which piled up 197 yards in all. Big Ten Football (Final) ''^ ^ T Pet.

And by doing so, they escaped the humiliation of a cellar finish and wound up with a 2-5 conference mark, tying Northwestern for seventh place. Overall they were 3-6. Minnesota settled for a 4-3 league log, thus missing a chance to tie Purdue for third. On an 11-degree day more fit for makifig snowballs or sitting at home by the fireside Wisconsin took charge at the outset. The Badgers were held to a 7-7 deadlock at halftime but grabbed the lead on Smith's 48-yard touchdown romp in the third quarter and held it with an almost unbelievably staunch defense down the stretch. Finish Strong After Smith's score, which came with 4:51 left in the third period, Minnesota came at the Badgers seven times. And seven times the Gophers gave up the football without even making a first down. They had exactly one first down and 46 net yards in the entire second half. Things did not always go smoothly even on a day when the Badgers were clearly the better team. They had to overcome considerable adversity which occurred in the form of nine fumbles, six of them recovered by Minnesota, and a variety of nagging little penalties. Some of the bobbles spoiled promising Badger threats, and by all rights Wisconsin should have won this game by a greater margin. Others put the Gophers in business, including, once on the Wisconsin 19 early in the third quarter. The defense had to be good Saturday and it was. It was superb. Many times the Badgers' spirit might have been broken, for it had given way in other games with far less provocation. Wanted to Win But this was a game the Badgers wanted badly. There were 22 seniors making farewell appearances, and they did not care to be beaten and (Turn to Page 2C, Coi. 4) Raiders Whip Elmhurst 7-0 By Carm Papara The Racine Raiders capitalized on a rirst-quarter break, converting it into the touchdown that beat Elmhurst 7-0 for the Central States Football League title at Horlick Field Saturday night. Jim May banged over from the one yard line and Bill Duchow booted the extra point for the only scoring as Racine completed its great Central States season with its 11th win in a row this year and 13 dating back to last fall. The playoff game, staged in zero weather and on a snow- covered field—in places over an inch deep — attracted a surprising total of 1,100 fans for the home finale. They were rewarded by a socking defensive game plus a few late scares when Elmhurst threatened to move in for the tying touchdown. Poisl Recovers Fumble End Dave Poisl, a defensive standout, pounced on Jim Bejna's fumble on the Elmhurst 20 midway through the first quarter to set the stage for the Raider goal-crossing. Bill Conklin and Tony Lombardo creamed the Elmhurst line for 12 yards in two plays, but the drive lost momentum after a five-yard penalty (illegal motion) and an incom­ pleted pass. Then May wheeled around his right end for 12 yards to the one, and went over on the next play. The frigid clime proved a detriment to the aerial work of both teams although Tom Beck managed to complete seven aerials after he came into the game in the second period. A knee injury had hobbled Beck for the last two weeks but he didn't show much trace of it in successfully evading a Raider rush most of the time. "Felt Like Ice" May, on the other hand, took to the air only 11 times Hail the Champs! SCORING „ „ „ ^ Elmhurst 0 0 0 0—9 n-.ine 7 0 0 0—7 Racine-May. 1, sneak (Ducho-w kick) STATISTICS ^ Racine Elm.

"The ball felt like a heavy piece of ice in my hand," May commented later. The ball probably felt that way to the receivers, who had trouble hanging on to passes that bounced off frozen fingers. The Travelers, who won league title in 1963, made just two first downs in the first three quarters, but they got four in the last stanza in making some threatening moves. 40 -yard Pass Coach George Kulton's club, defensively tough all the way, showed offensive flashes when Beck passed 13 yards to Stan Smagala to midfield. Curt Griswold rambled 13 yards on the next play but Racine's Jim Raffini belted Beck for a seven-yard loss to (Turn to Page 3C, Col. 3) Dominican '5' 103-72 Loser —Journal-Times Photo Jim May, both arms circled about the ball, dove across from the 1-yard-line for touchdown lihat gave Raiders a win over Elmhurst.

MILWAUKEE —Milwaukee Institute of Technology, led by high scoring Sol Lewin, handed Racine Dominican its first loss of the basketball season Saturday night 103-72. Lewin dumped in 29 points. MIT finished last season with a 23-2 record and indicated Saturday night how it did it. Fast break, excellent rebounding and good ball handling were the ingredients in the MIT victory recipe. Casey Binkowski got 26 for Coach Paul Pryor's quintet, but the Squires missed shots, lost the ball on poor ball handling and couldn't quite catch up to MIT's speedy outfit. Dominican had won two straight before meeting the rugged MIT team. Next on the schedule is the Racine Extension cagers next Saturday night, then Northland College Dec. 4.
