You can take the word of Coach Milt Bruhn that Wisconsin's offense is due for considerable attention as the Badgers eye their key Big Ten football game with unbeaten Northwestern Satur- day. The cause for concern is the fact that the second place Badgers could keep an attack going for only about 20 min- utes Saturday hi taking a 19- 10 victory 'from stubborn Michigan. The defense was fine against a fired-up Wol- verine team that was cheer- ed on .by a homecoming crowd of at' Ann Arbor. Wisconsin built up a 16-3 lead at the intermission and then could make only three first downs. No Happy Expressions Bruhn said Sunday that if his team turns in a similar performance against North- western, "we'll get beat." "We'll have to be better on offense from start to he said. "We went to the locker room like a beaten team. There wasn't a happy expression on any player even though we had won. That sec- ond half was a nightmare. 'Defensively, we were a great team. Naturally we were disturbed by our offense and we'll do a lot of close checking this week to find out what's wrong. I don't think our kids took Michigan as seriously as they did Iowa" or Ohio State, but don't underestimate the Wol- verines. They've given other teams a hard time." Although 20 pounds, to the'man and trail- Ing .by 13 points at the half, Michigan stayed in willing contention with three teams of inexperienced but -ambitious players. "When that third team came barrelling in and poured it to us in the secorid half, I think it hurt us psychological- ly." Bruhn explained. "Our kids couldn't believe a third team could do that." Kicks Field Goal Interceptions killed off nearly every Michigan scor- ing threat but the issue wasn't settled until Karl Holzwarth booted a field goal in the fi- nal 20 seconds. On the second play from scrimmage Michigan recover- ed a Badger fumble on the Wisconsin 23 and Darrell Har- per kicked a field goal. The Badgers roared back after an exchange of pass in- terceptions and Tom Wiesner made the final five yards. Dale Hackbart ran for the ex- tra two points. Bob Zeman stole a pass in the second period and the Badgers scored again in eight plays as Hackbart bolted over from the 1-yard line. That was the last time Wisconsin camp- Monday, November 2, 1959 Appleton Post-Cratcent B9 The Loose Ball Is Still in the air as Green Bay's Don Mcllhenhy, 42, on the ground in left background, fumbles on his own 3-yard line, in the first quarter of Sunday's game with the New York Giants in Yankee stadium.

Jones matched it, also against the Bears, in 1951. For all Brown's brilliance, Cleveland had its hands full containing Johnny Unitas, who passed for all four Colt TDs. That gave him 17 scoring passes for the season and stretched his consecutive game record to 31. v The 49ers also won their third in a row, ripping the Lions after a 73-yard scoring run by halfback J. D. Smith on the second play. It was Smith's seventh TD of the sea- son, one less than co-leaders Brown and Philadelphia's Tommy McDonald. Hugh Mc- Elhenny, after nursing a brok- en hand for a month, returned to full-tjime duty and hauled in a pair of scoring passes from Y. A. Tittle, one on a 62-yard Play. The Eagles kept the pace with some stout defense after scoring all their points in the first half, McDonald snaring one of Norm Van Brocklin's two TD passes. The Bears beat the Rams with 19 points in the third quarter, scoring twice within two minutes on a blocked punt and a fumble. Rookies Bill Stacey and Ken Hall put it away for the Cardi- nals with a pair of long punt returns in a 21-pomt second period against the Steelers. atways You're always well-suited in a Masterpiece by Middishade.
