Oct 23 (AP) Members of Congress have been provided with an opportunity to obtain tickets at a special rate for the Army-Navy football game, despite a White House rule barring all spectators except those living within a ten-mile radius of West Point. Printed cards have been mailed the lawmakers, pointing out that a member of Congress "is considered to be an honorary member of the Navy Athletic Association without payment of annual dues" and as such "is privileged to purchase two tickets tinder a special rate arrangement." The game will be played this year at Michie Stadium. West Point. Midshipmen from Annapolis themseves will be barred from attending, as were the soldier Cadets last year when the game was played at the Naval Academy. The rule was laid down to prevent taxing the war-strained transportation facilities. WKSTERN DIVISION W I.

Carrying the scars of two defeats, the Detroit Lions will be hark on their home gridiron Sun day and hope to find some truth I in ins axiom, as. s aivvaja .aoivi the second time." The Lions will meet the Green Bay Packers before a crowd expected to reach 40,000 at Briggs Stadium and they are convinced they can at least do no worse than they did against the Packers in Green Bay two weeks ago. At that time the Packers walloped Detroit, 35 to 14. Green Bay will bring a team which will have a distinct advantage both in size and experience. The Packers' 218-pound line will cutweigh Detroit's forward wall 11 pounds to the man. In experience. Green Bay has considerable edge. Only one of the Packers, Irving Comp, is new to the pro ranks, an unusual situation in these times of manpower problems. Consequently the Packers are rated big favorites. The commercial calculators of gridiron scraps are spotting the Lions lO1 points. These calculators are usually pretty accurate in their gauging. For Detroit this will be no or dinary game. On its outcome rests the Lions last slender hope of a championship. Beaten in two of five games to date, a third defeat would wipe out all Detroit hopes of landing in the playoffs against the Eastern Division winner. There will be only one change in the Detroit 1 i n e-u p. Jack Matheson will replace the malaria-stricken Ben Hightower at right end. Coach Gus Dorais intends to open with a backfield composed of Bill Callihan. Charley Fenenbock, Ned Mathews and Harry Hopp. Frankie Sinkwich will De held in reserve to alternate with Fenenbock at left halfback. The Packers, of course, will have Tony Canadeo, their versatile halfback, and Don Hutson as the big guns. Canadeo rifled three touchdown passes in the first game against the Lions and Hut-son, besides being an ace place-kicker, is undoubtedly the finest pass receiver in football. Incidentally, Hutson and Detroit's Augie Lio are tied in the manufacturing of extra points with 13 each. In other games Sunday the Chicago Bears should have no trouble defeating Brooklyn in Chicago; Washington can take the Chicago Cardinals in stride in Washington, and Philadelphia-Pittsburgh should be favored over New York in New York. t V rrSr "j Pimm I '- J- w 1 - " - f 2 , t ' i" " " v-V?

U.ofD.High Keeps Slate Clean, 20-0 Cubs Whip Chadsey for Third in Row; Northwestern Passes Trip Redford, 20-0 BY BOB LATSHAW The Cubs of U. of D. High staged touchdown drives in the first and fourth quarters to hammer out a 20-0 triumph over Chadsey's Explorers and stay un defeated and unscored on in the West Division of the City High School League. Johnny Gavigan was the hero of the Cub's victory. He handled most of the ball-carrying and passing assignments, scoring one touchdown and passing for an other. He was responsible for the first marker when he tossed a 35-yard pass to Don Steffy in the end zone in the first quarter, and after that same combination had moved the ball into the pay zone, Gavigan plunged for another marker. GOING A LONG WAY In the final minute of play Joe Parke scampered 61 yards for the Cubs last touchdown. Bill Bichan scored the extra point. The greatest threat by Chadsrey came in the final quarter when the Explorers marched to the Cubs' 15 but lost the ball on downs. It was the fourth consecutive victory for the Cubs, three of the triumphs coming in league competition. Cooley has also been victorious in four games, including three payoff tests. Northwestern 's Colts, after bowing to Cooley last week, took to the air Saturday to trounce the Huskies of Redford, 20 to 0. The Colts' overhead game, paced by Dick Dresser, was too much for Redford PASSES FIND MARK After setting up the first marker with long aerials. Dresser carried the ball over in the second quarter from the four. In the following quarter he kept pegging the pigskin and connected with Fred Knack from the 15-yard line for another score. He then passed to Hall Ping for the extra point. In the last quarter the Colts scored again, mainly because of two Dresser passes. He tossed one good for 40 yards to Harry Ramsey and then passed to Knack again for a touchdown. The same combination accounted for the extra point after the touchdown. 5.

SABO Free Pre Staff Writer ANN ARBOR, Oct. 23 The Minnesota miseries are no more. They ceased to exist today 14 seconds after Michigan faced the once golden but now tarnished Gophers. Supplying the long- sought medicine was that doctor of touchdowns and sudden football death, Elroy Hirsch. For tne statistically minded, it required 60 minutes to give Michigan its landslide 49-6 victory. These are the most points scored by Michigan against Minnesota in history, but it didn't require 60 minutes to decide this game and regain the little Brown Jug. It required only 14 seconds or, to be precise, one play. That play was prdouced by Dr. Hirsch. It was a simple smash aimed at the Minnesota left tackle the first time Michigan had the ball. It resulted in a 61-yard touchdown. HOW IT WAS DONE Michigan lined up for an orthodox line smash on its 39. Paul White swung into action to the left and Bill Daley received the ball from center. He spun, handed it to Dr. Hirsch and that erstwhile Marine quickly had the situation in hand. Hirsch busted over tackle, assisted by a clean block tossed by j Quarterback Bob Wiese. Minne sota, obviously watching out for Daley, didn't know what had happened until the Gophers saw Dr. Hirsch streaking down the sidelines. He didn't need any more blocking. He was in the clear, but Tackle Bob Hanzlik made certain by cutting down one Minnesota back who was 10 yards behind Hirsch. This was the big 61-yard touchdown run. It wasn't the true margin of victory, but it was the play which really smothered the Gophers. They never recov ered from that touchdown, and before this game was ended, Michigan had rammed or passed for six more touchdowns and added all seven extra points. Michigan men, who had not tasted a Minnesota victory since 1932, never thought that the fa mine of Gopher meat would end with such a feast It probably would not have, if Hirsch had not blasted the Gophers on the first running play of the afternoon, REAL VICTORY FEAST In scoring 49 points, Michigan registered more than it has What's YOUR Score? BY REV. FREDERICK D. TYNER Rector of St. Luke's Church, Minneapolis Locker room conversation that center around "that kid of mine" are always interesting. When some youngster shines on his school team his father usually lets the locker room gang know about it ; when some youngster licks the old man on the golf course that same old man will tell his pals all about the game and swell up with pride when he describes the way the young fellow hit the ball a mile and sank a twenty-foot putt. It certainly is a great thing for any young fellow when his father takes a keen interest not only in his athletic but in everything, else that means so much to a young chap in the formative period of his life. About that time he is a dreamer and an idealist and given a father who helps him to make those dreams come true the young fellow emerges into real life with a backlog that will stand him in good stead in the more difficult days to come. .Bat it is mighty tough on the boy whose father shows little or no interest in his athletic, social or spiritual life. Such parental delinquency paves the way or a lot of juvenile delinquency. Some years ago a youngster of 15 found himself in trouble. Up to that time he had struggled along without any help from his father. He was faithful to his church and all that the church stands for, but his father wasn't interested and did nothing to encourage him. When the trouble came the boy's pastor talked it over with him. The interview ended by the young fellow in a broken voice saying: "I ONLY WISH MY FATHER KNEW HOW HARD I AM TRYING." WHAT'S YOUR SCORE 1 against Minnesota in the last 12 years combined. Hirsch himself scored three touchdowns, more than Michigan has made in any game against the Gophers since the 20-0 victory of 1926. Hirsch, of course, wasn't the only Michigan man to jolt the Gophers. Daley scored two touchdowns, and Farnum Johnson and Bob Nussbaumer made one each. Merv PreguJman booted four extra points, Daley made two and Bob Stenberg one. But these came after Hirsch had crashed the Gopher touchdown gates in a manner the 45,000 fans will not soon forget. The one touchdown Loren Palmer made for Minnesota in the second quarter resulted from one of Michigan's few mistakes. It came after Guard Bob Lossie had intercepted Jack Wink's third-down pass on the Michigan 15. Even then the Gophers needed six cracks at the line before Palmer crashed across from the one. It was a great day for Michigan, but as Lt Com. Harry G. Ki'pke lamented, "why couldn't this have happened two weeks ago against Notre Dame?" . Whether Michigan recaptured the famed Little Brown Jug by beating Minnesota " today remains unclear, but the Wolverines declared after the game that they would be happy to accept shipment charges from Minneapolis collect "I haven't any idea whether we'll get the Jug," said Coach Fritz Crisler in a jubilant Michigan dressing room. "To be frank. I haven't heard anything about it. Before the game some Minnesota men started to mention it and I told them, 'Let's wait until after the game.' I guess they got away without telling me what they had in mind." Although not speaking officially. Coach George Hauser of Minnesota said that he thought the Jug, a 35-cent earthenware water container that Fielding H. Yost left at Minneapolis 40 years ago, should have been at stake. The trophy changed hands six times before today. Purdue Rally Overcomes Iowa, 28-7 Boilermakers Score Three Touchdowns in Last 14 Minutes for 6th Victory in Row By the Associated Pres LAFAYETTE, Ind., Oct 23 Held on even terms for three quarters of the game, Purdue's mighty Boilermakers suddenly touched off their offensive fireworks with a blast that produced three touchdowns in 14 minutes of the last quarter and brought them a 28-7 football victory today over a stubborn University of Iowa eleven. The crowd was almost 15.000. It was Purdue's sixth consecutive victory and advanced the Boilermakers another step toward at least a tie for the Big Ten championship. Iowa has now lost four and tied one. Iowa's rugged and hard-charging line held Puruue to only one touchdown in the first three quarters, and the Hawkeyes even led for a part of the game. After Paul Glasener, of Waterloo, la., scored Iowa's first quarter marker, "Touchdown" Tony Butkovich evened the count in the second quarter. Then it was a ding-dong battle until Purdue swept 71 yards in three plays to send Butkovich over again at the start of the final quarter. A few minutes later Butkovich went over again after an on-side kickoff. The final Purdue score came when an Iowa pass from center went into the end zone and was recovered by Nathan Laskin, reserve Boilermaker end from Youngstown, O. It began to look as though the Boilermakers were going to have to settle for a tie until Butkovich ripped off runs of 38 and 30 yards to score shortly after the start of the final quarter. The ensuing . on-side kickoff caught Iowa fast asleep. Joe Buscemi pounced on the free ball on the Iowa 36, and in six plays Butkovich had scored again.
