There were no Purple balloons billowing their way across the clear November skies above Dyche stadium at Northwestern university last night. Neither were there any swaggering columns of visitors marching through the streets of Evanston singing joyfully, ' We're from I-O-W-A-Y, out where the tall corn grows." The reason was that the 22d foot ball game played yesterday afternoon between these old rivals under clear, crisp skies over a springy, lightning fast turf resulted in a scoreless deadlock. N. TJ.

The injuries which put Heap and Swisher out of the battle came late in the first quarter. Heap had been going in great style. The game was hardly three minutes old when he hit through right tackle for ten yards. Again a little later he intercepted a long Iova pass. He shook off one Continued on page 7, column 6.
