MINUS 12 YARDS RUSHING:
Irish Smashed, 12-3
By The Associated Press
SOUTH BEND - Michigan"
State's vaunted wall of steel par-"
alyzed the legs of Notre Dame's
modern Four Horsemen yesterday.
and the tense Spartans rallied for
12-3 victory that added polish to
their No. 1 college football ranking.
The hard running Irish quartet
of Bill Wolski, Nick Eddy, Larry
Conjar and Bill Zloch was held
to a minus 12 yards.
Falling behind 3-0 on a fumble
and a 32-yard field goal by Ken
Ivan in the opening minutes, the
big, talented Spartans snapped
back for two lightning touchdowns
in the last half on a three-yard'
plunge by Clint Jones and a 19-
yard pass from quarterback Steve
Juday to Dwight Lee.
Jones, a flashy runner, ripped'
through the Irish defense all day
and set up the first score early in
the third period with a 20-yardi
dash after a punt runback by Jess
Phillips gave the Spartans the ball
on the Notre Dame 39.
The second score came with four
minutes, two seconds gone in the
final period. It was a quickie that

Wolski, Conjar, Eddy and Zloch
who among them had rolled up
more than 1,600 yards on the
ground, hit the rock-like forward
wall of State and bounced back.
After an early attack of the jit-
ters, during which they lost the
ball twice in the first half on
fumbles and twice on intercepted
passes, the Spartans reached their
full potential behind the passing'
of Juday, and the running of
Michigan State played without'

bruise on his left knee a week
ago. The 215-pound fullback start-
ed the game, carried the ball twice
and went out with a recurrence
of the injury in the closing min-
utes of the first half.
Michigan State again proved it-
self a come-from-behind team.j
This game marked the fifth time'
this season that the Spartans'
opponents had scored first, and
