oilermakers Halt Spartan Offense;
flini, Buckeyes Topple Big Ten Foes

Georgia Tech Strengthens Defense
To Hold Unbeaten Auburn to 7-7 Tie

By The Associated Press v
LAFAYETTE -Purdue's Boiler-
nakers, perennial spoilers of
vichigan State football seasons,
irtually knocked the Spartans out
f the Big Ten race today, 14-6.
Snarling back from a defeat by
Visconsin last week, Purdue upset
Michigan State just as it did last
ear with ferocious line play that
eld the Spartans to a miserable
8 yards by rushing and only 65
1 the air.
Purdue stymied the varied Spar-
an offense so completely that
Michigan State failed to capitalize
n five recoveries of Boilermaker
umbles. The only Spartan touch-
own, a beautifully executed 11-
ard pass from Larry Bielat of
)ick Barker, however, came as the
esult of a Purdue error. It came
n the second quarter after Purdue

lost the ball of its 12 on a fourth
down bad pass from center. ,
Purdue immediately drove 59
yards for a touchdown, halfback
Leonard Wilson going the last five
yards, and the teams carried a 6-6
tie into the second half. Michigan
State missed on a conversion pass,
but its Ellison Kelly blocked Bob
Spoo's extra-point kick for Purdue.
The Boilermaker's wrapped it
up in the third quarter, blasting 53
yards in spite of a fumbled punt
and a 15-yard penalty. Bob Jarus
plunged the last foot, but the big
gainer was a 30-yard pass from
Ross Fichtner to end Dick Brooks.
Purdue has beaten Michigan
State four times in their last six
meetings, cutting a 28-game win-
ning streak for the Spartans in
1953 and knocking them out of
No. 1 national rating last year.
Yesterday's loss left the Spartans,
who were already tied by Michigan
this year, with little chance of
taking the Big Ten crown.
Illini Win
rifle-armed quarterback who once
appeared headed for football ob-
livion; hurled two mighty touch-
down passes and guided Illinois to
a. 20-8 victory over Minnesota
Hickey teamed with end Rich
Kreitling on identical-play touch-
down passes that covered 83 and
66 yards, the first giving Illinois
a first period lead and the second
rubbing out an 8-7 Gopher advan-
It was a weird homecoming bat-
tle, played before a crowd of 58,174
that saw the officials march off
155 yards in penalties in the first
half. Despite Illinois' first period
touchdown and offense-k lling
penalties, Minnesota looked cap-
able of handling the Illini until
Hickey's passing arm and a pro-
cession of errors caught up with
the Gophers.
Minutes after Hickey's second
touchdown pass, the Illini applied
the crusher by sending sophomore
Dick McDade over from the eight.
Guard Bill Burrel intercepted a
Gopher pass and carried it back to
Minnesota's 20, setting up Illinois'
final score.
White Stars for Buckeyes
COLUMBUS-Blockbusting Bob
White scored four touchdowns to-

day to lead Ohio State to a 49-8
victory over an outclassed and out-
manned Indiana team in a Big Ten
game before 82,964 fans.
The 207-pound White bulldozed
his way to the first four scores, two
of which were set up by intercepted
passes and another by a fumble.
Indiana's misplays also gave the
ball to Ohio twice for the other
The Hoosiers only entrance into
Ohio territory came against the
fourth-stringers when Norm Mac-
kin passed six yards to Dick Brad-
ford for a touchdown with only
four seconds to play.
Indiana was unable to contain
the devastating Ohio ground at-
tack and could make little head-
way against the huge Buckeye for-
ward wall. Beset by fumbles, pass
interceptions and penalties, the
Hoosiers never had a chance as
they lost their seventh straight
game to Ohio State.
Buckeye Coach Woody Hayes,
who set up a furore early in the
week by charging that laxity of
officials was condoning dirty play,
created the game's big diversion in
the fdurth period when, leading
35-0, he shed his hat and coat and
rushed onto the field to remon-
strate with the arbiters. His only
reward was a 15-yard penalty
against the Buckeyes.
White carried the ball 29 times
for 116 yards in his four-touch-
down splurge and then sat out
most of the latter part of the
:game. The red-haired fullback
who wears contact lenses went for
no long gains, but was a steady
The victory was the fourth of
the year and the 13th straight for
Ohio's Big Ten and Rose Bowl
champions. The loss was Indiana's
11th in, a row in the conference
and gave the Hoosiers a 1-3 record
for the season.

NORFOLK - Spearheaded by
Quarterback Richie Petitbon, Tu-
lane chalked up its first victory of
the season, 14-6, over Navy in the
Oyster Bowl yesterday.-
The loss, Navy's first of the sea-

his plays and ran and passed well

touchdown marches of 66 and 83
The Middies came within a point
of tying the score late in the
second half on a 25-yd. pass from
Joe Tranchini to Joe Bellino, but
Tulane's defense held and its 83-

deadlock yesterday.
The tie ended Auburn's streak
of 17 straight victories.
Auburn dominated play in the
first half and scored first on a.
two-yd. plunge by fullback Ed
Dyas early in the second quarter.
Georgia Tech scored its touch-
down in the fourth quarter after
quarterback Fred Braselton inter-
cepted an Auburn pass and re-
turned it to the Tigers' 36.
Braselton's passing set up a
quarterback sneak for the score
on third down from the one-the
first time since 1956 that anyone
had scored on Auburn on a run
from scrimmage. Tech elected to
kick the extra point, settling for

The Cadets -were hampered by
fumbles in the first half, but, led
by Caldwell, they outscored Vir-
ginia, 21-0, in the final two quar-
ters. Caldwell scored one of Army's
five touchdowns and played a big
part in three others with his ac-
curate passing and clutch running.
Anderson's brilliant ball-carry-
ink took up the slack left by in-
juries to star halfback, Pete Daw-
kins, and fullback Harry Walters.
Virginia's lone TD came in the
second quarter on a seven-yd. pass
play. The Cadets' defense pre-
vented two later scores when it
stopped Cavalier drives to the

High Riding Colts Face Lions Today

The Detroit Lions open the gates
of Briggs Stadium today to wel-
come the Baltimore Colts, West-
ern Conference leaders, who
threaten to hand the Motor City
football team their secondstraight
Riding the crest of a three
game winning streak, the Colts
entered 'Detroit yesterday, fresh
from their comeback victory over
the Green Bay Packers.
Morrall Unleashed
Today's game will also reveal
the true character of Earl Mor-
rail and his ability to integrate
into the Wilsonian method of
The Cleveland Browns, perenial
leader in the Eastern Conference,
will be in a strong position to jar
Buddy Parker from his throne at
Pitt Stadium when they seek their
fourth NFL win against the Steel-
ers. Bobby Layne has hopes that
his protection will withstand the
relentless pounding of the Brown
line, but unless the Cleveland for-;
ward wall undergoes an extreme
change, the Pittsburgh passing de-
partment is in for a bad afternoon.

Paul Brown and his puppets in
the Browns' backfieled boast too
much strength and diversity for
the Steelers to turn in a repeat
performance of their victory over
the Eagles.
Tied for second in the Western
Division, the Bears and Los An-
geles Rams will settle the ques-
tion at Wrigley Field. Chicago,
with t~vo top sprinters, Willie CGali-
more and J. C. Caroline, in the
backfield complimenting the
charging of Rick Casares, is rated
a six point favorite.
The Rams place their trust in
Billy Wade and Jon Arnett to
make life miserable for the Bears.
If the men from the West Coast
can continue their "shock troop"
technique of quick scoring, they
could surprise the Bears with a
mild league upset.
Hoping to impress the Brown's
with their ability are the second
place New York Giants who enter-
tain the Chicago Cardinals in the
Polo Grounds today. With a double
wing offense to confuse Charley
Conerly and his New York friends,
the 'Cardinals will aim for their

second league victory and a chance
at third place.
Moving away from home where
the fates have been against them,
Green Bay aims for their first
NFL victory when they face the
Washington Redskins led by the
wee wizard of the Eastern Divi-
sion, Quarterback Eddie LeBaron.
Need Ground Game
If the Packers can unleash a
ground gaining offense to match
their passing ability, they will
spoil many a football parley card
besides awarding Scooter McLean
his first victory as a pro coach.
