OKLAHOMA DOWNS CHICAGO
(By Assocatd Press)
WEST POINT, N. Y., Oct. 1.-One
long pass, Cagel to Born, in the first
quarter against a substitute team,
gave the Army a 6 to 0 victory over
the University of Detroit football team
Coach Dorais started his second squad
with the strategic purpose of hurling
in his regulars at an opportune mo-
ment. The move failed. After an early
exchange of punts Army had the ball
on the Titan's 47-yard line. After Cagel
was stopped for no gain, he passed
over the line to Born who dropped for
what proved to be the only score of
the game. Wilson missed the attempt
iBoth Teams Fumble.
Fumbles were frequent by both
teams. The third and fourth quarters
were limited to 11 minutes each be-
cause of the intense heat.
Detroit, on a series of line bucks
and an Army penalty, advanced to the
Cadets' 10-yard line early in the sec-
ond quarter, but lost the ball on
downs. Both sides turned to punting
when the heat began to take its toll,
and substitutions were frequent.
Grier Misses Goal.
Grier, sent into the Army backfield
to attempt a field goal, missed and
Brazil punted out of danger as the half
ended. Again in the third quarter, .De-
troit threatened when a pass, Maloney
to Phelan, took the ball to the Army's
8-yard line. The Cadets' regular squad,
which had been resting, was rushed in
to halt the advance. Connell made two
(yards off tackle and the Titan's last
chance for a score was lost.
In the fourth quarter Dorais' men
unleashed a passing attack which net-
ted gains of 40 yards andl 35 yards,
but the Army defense broke up the ad-
vance by intercepting a pass.
CHICAGO, Oct. 1.-With five min-
utes to go and Chicago leading 7 to 0,
Haskins of Oklahoma passed twice,
each throw resulting in a touchdown
and the Sooners defeated Chicago by a
13 to 7 score here today. Chicago's
lead, acquired in the second period
when Mendenhall, playing his first!
game of college football, passed,
kicked and bucked for a touchdown,
was never threatened until late in the
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 1.-In mid-
summer heat the University of Penn-
sylvania crushed the Swarthmore col-
lege football team on Franklin field
today, 33 to 0. About 40,000 persons
perspired in the heat and watched the
Pennsylvania ran' over Swarthmore
in the first period for a score of 20 to
0, but did not score again until the
last period when two more touch-
downs were made. the first three
touchdowns came i 11t minutes.
Instead of adhering to the hidden-
ball entirely, Pennsylvania opened
wide her attackls and made consider-
able headway through the air.

vard end, broke his leg in scrimmage

the winners still in doubt is waging

outfielder, however, apparently seems
destined to win the honor which he
has held every other year since 1921
because of his spectacular spurt with
