Washington Plays Purdue To Tie

Argentine Fighter
Given 50-50 Chance

_____ 5 3

SEATTLE (M)-The fast Huskies
of Washington outgained the Boil-
ermakers of Purdue yesterday, but
also outfumbled them and had to
settle for a 7-7 tie in their inter-
regional game.
The Huskies jumped out in front
i nthe first quarter when fullback
Bob Monroe crossed the goal line
from two yds. out to climax a drive.
The over-capacity crowd of 55,-
500 took this as an omen of a
Washington victory, but was dis-
illusioned when Washington was
struck by fumbleitis in the second
The first one came just as the
second quarter started, with Wash-
ington on its own 20. Tackle
Nathaniel Jackson pounced on the
bobble for Purdue at the Wash-
ington 14. Four smashes by the big
Purdue backs fell a yard short of
the first down, but Washington
charitably gave the ball right back
on another fumble.
Halfback Dave Miller fielded the
dropped ball on the 3 and dived
over, but the ball was ruled dead
where he made the recovery.
A Washington offside moved the
ball to the 2, and fullback Tom
Yakubowski took it in for the tally.
No More Score
Omer (Skip) Ohl kicked the ty-
ing point, and the scoring was
over for the afternoon.
Ohl, whose kicking decided the
issue in Purdue's 13-6 victory over
the Huskies last year, had tried a
field goal earlier from the 21-yd.
line but the boot was short.
Washington brought on its soph-
omore kicker, Jim Norton, three
times to try for field goals, twice
in the final three minutes of the
Zero for Three
The" youngster, who had convert-
ed after the Washington touch-
down, missed all three. One was
from the 20, the second from the
42 and the last one-with just 26
seconds left in the game-was
from the 32-yd. line.
It just missed, skimming the
right standard a yard above the
Passes were rarely tried by
either team, and each club had one
toss backfire at crucial moments
in the third period.
Washington had driven to the
Purdue 22 when Siler tried the
air route for a tally. Bob Lake in-
tercepted the toss.
Clutch Interception \
1 That launched a Purdue drive
that carried to the Washington 17,
but Nat Whitmyer intercepted Ron
Di Gravio's pass on the goal line.
Senior fullback Monroe was the
outstanding man in tenth-ranked
Washington's quick-hitting back-
field, and scored his team's touch-
down on a two-yard plunge. In
Ma or League

the line, it was sophomore guard
Rick Redman who made 11 tackles
and also did the team's punting.
One of his kicks landed on the
Purdue 2, and was grounded there
by a Washington man.
The Purdue standout was junior
Dave Ellison. Not listed in the pro-
gram, he was very much present
at defensive end, making nine
tackles and throwing Washington
for several losses on pass attempts.
Tackle Don Brumm turned in
13 tackles for Purdue, which was
ranked seventh nationally.

While Purdue was held to a tie
by Washington, Northwestern clob-
bered South Carolina, 37-20, and
Indiana avenged a 1961 loss to
Kansas State with a 21-0 victory.

Probably the most spectacular
beginning of the season was the
effort by Northwestern's Tom
Myers, an 18-year-old sopho-
more quarterback, completed 20 of
24 passes to tie Otta Graham's
Northwestern record set in 1942.
Then he fell only 20 yds. short of
Graham's 295 yds. gained in one
game as he departed with four
minutes left to play.
Myers was thet big factor in
Northwestern's opening victory al-
though Paul Flatley of the Wild-
cats showed exceptional pass
catching ability.
Myers threw two touchdown
passes and ran another score by

Indiana stayed on the ground
for the most part to trounce Kan-
sas State despite totaling 189 yds.
in penalties.
The Hoosiers depended upon
veteran backs although sopho-
mores also contributed towards'
the victory.
Woody Moore, Mike Lopa and
Tom Nowatzke scored touchdowns:
for the Hoosiers while iNowatzke
booted all three extra points.
Action will pick up in the Big
Ten next week with Illinois at
Washington. Indiana at Cincin-
nati, Oregon State at Iowa, Ne-
braska at Michigan, Missouri at
Minnesota, North Carolina at Ohio
State and New Mexico State at
Wisconsin. In addition, Notre
Dame will be at Oklahoma.

LOS ANGELES (A)-Argentine
heavyweight Alejandro Lavorante

tion" last night, a neurosurgeon
But it will be another 48 hours
before it will be determined wheth-
er the stricken prizefighter will
recover, said Dr. J. DeWitt Fox.
Dr. Fox said, after examining
the handsome Argentine, that it
appears Lavorante has a "better
than 50-50 chance now."
The boxer, knocked out Friday
night by underdog Johnny Riggins

10-round fight, will be given an

Penn State Runs Wild, Blasts Navy 41-7

By The Associated Press
State's Nittany Lions, sparked by
the specatcular running and de-
fensive work of halfbacks Al Gur-
sky and Junior Powell, trampled
Navy 41-7 yesterday in a battle
between two of the East's top-
ranked college football powers.
Both Gursky and Powell scored
two touchdowns each and came
up with stunning pass intercep-
tions to break the Middies' backs.
Gursky electrified some 40,000
spectators in the second period by
grabbing a Navy pass on his 23
yard line and racing 77 yds. un-
touched for Penn State's third tal-
Powell did the same in the last
period, intercepting a pass on his
own 48 and scampering 52 yds. to
Both also scored on pass plays
from State quarterback Pete Liske,
Gursky's covered five yds. and
Powell's nine.
Except for several moments in
the second and third periods, it
was Penn State all the way both
on offense and defense in this
open:ng game of the season for
both teams.
High Percentage
Liske and reserve quarterback
Ron Coates, getting excellent pro-
tection from Penn State's front
line, teamed to complete 16 of 23
passes for 234 yds. Liske's aerials
also played a key role in setting
up State's second and fourth
touchdowns. Roger Kochman, the
Lions' leading candidate for All-
America honors, carried eight yds.

score while Liske bootlegged across

halfback John Sai on the injured
list earlier this week. barreling up
the middle 35 yds. for the score.

Sooners Squeak By
NORMAN, Okla. - Oklahoma
fullback Joe Don Looney streaked
60 yds. down the sideline with two
minutes left yesterday to give the
Sooners a 7-3 victory over Syra-
cuse in a rib-bruising intersec-
tional football game.
Looney, a 207-pound junior from
Fort Worth, Tex., bulled his way
from the grasp of a pocket of de-
fenders at midfield and raced
down the left sideline to the end

capturing three key fumbles-the
last one on Oklahoma's 10 yd. line
as the husky Orangemen appeared
set to drive in for 'the clincher.
For Syracuse, it was another
end, Brian Howard, who had ap-
parently saved the day for the
Easterners. This came midway in
the final period when Oklahoma.
halfback Jackie Cowan broke loose'
and appeared to have a clear field.
But Howard cut across and his

Cal Crumbles
BERKELEY, Calif.-Missouri's
swift sophomore halfback Johnny
Roland scored three touchdowns in
his varsity debut yesterday leading
the Tigers to a 21-10 intersection-
al victory over California.-
A crowd of 36,500 in Memorial
Stadium watched the elusive 192-
lb. back from Corpus Christi, Tex.,
dash 58 yds. around his right end
for the third period tally that fin-
ally gave the Tigers a lead over
the upset-minded Bears in this
1962 football season opener.
Roland scored on a two-yd.
smash in the second quarter de-
spite dropping the ball in the end
zone. He took a seven-yd. pass
from Vince Tobin in the final per-
iod for his third touchdown. Bill
Tobin booted the conversions.
Matches High
The three touchdown outburst
matched the highest for a game by
a Missouri player, a record already
shared by 10. In 20 carries yester-
day afternoon, Roland gained 171
yds. for an 8.5 average.

USC Passes Duke
LOS ANGELES - Quarterback
Bill Nelsen threw a tie-breaking
51-yd. scoring strike to towering
end end Hal Bedsole late in the
second quarter and Southern Cali-
fornia made it stand for a 14-7
upset victory over Duke yester-
The favored Blue Devils from
North Carolina gave the 26,400 on
hand in Memorial Coliseum, as
well as a national television, audi-
ence, a prolonged thrill as they
drove from their own 21 to the
Trojan ,23 in the final two min-

The threat ended there when
the Trojans intercepted a pass.
Pass Connects
The key play for Southern Cal'
came with a minute and a half
to go in the first half when Nelsen
arched a long pass to the 6'5"
Bedsole, who had managed to get
behind Duke's Walt Rappold and
loped on to the winning touch-
Duke, ranked No. 8 in the an-
nual Associated Press pre-season'
poll, opened the scoring in the first
quarter when quarterback Gil Gar-
ner completed a 25-yd. pass to
Jay Wilkinson.
The score came at the end of a'
60-yd. drive that followed a bad
break for the Trojans-a blocked
punt on which they lost 26 yds.
Southern Cal, with Pete Beat-
hard guiding the team, was down
on the Duke 14. On fourth down
they tried a field goal but a bad
pass from center cost the Trojans
26 yds.-back to the Duke 40-and
also possession of the ball.
The Trojans came back to go
52 yds. in 12 plays, with Beathard
tossing four yds. to Willie Brown
for the tying touchdown.
Beathard set up the winning
rally when h, intercepted a Garner
pass-one of five Duke aerials in-
tercepted-and ran it back 21 yds.
to his own 44.
Two plays later came the Nel-
sen-Bedsole bomb and Duke went

on to its third defeat in its third
invasion of Southern California,
dating back to its historic loss to
the Trojans in the 1939 Rose Bowl.
Two years ago Duke was beaten
by UCLA in this same arena.

yesterday for a 7-0 football vic-
tory over Southern Methodist.
The heavily favored Terps start-
ed the second half in the same
pattern that stymied them during
the first two quarters-with a 15-
yd. penalty. '
Quarterback Dick Shiner, the
junior from Lebanon, Pa., rifled
and ran the Terps for 86 yds. on
13 plays without interruption in
