(Associated Press Sports Editor)
NEW YORK, Dec. 1. - (A) - Th
University of Minnesota's all-con-
quering football forces have a copper
rivet9d claim to the mythical nationa
college championship of 1934, but
not even this super-array of gridiror
talent proved equal to the job of try-
ing to keep this year's gridiron heroes
of the far-flung Southern battlefront
from displacing the Middle West a
the leading producer of All-America
For the first time since Walter
Camp popularized the annual all-
star argument, way back in the "ele-
gant eighties," the South leads all
other main sections of the country in
placing its favorites on the All-
America team.
The territory stretching from the
Carolinas to the wide open ranges of
Texas contributes five of the 11 stal-
warts named today for .college foot-
ball's, highest award in the tenth
annual Associated Press consensus se-
The South's most formidable grid-
iron machine, Alabama, shares the
first team honors with Minesota and
Stanford each placing two men, while
Texas Christian, Rice Institute and
North Carolina contribute the remain-
ing three representatives of Dixie's
gallant gridiron forces.
Rest Evenly Divided
This compares with two places on
the first team each for the East,
Middle West and Far West. It is a
sharp contrast with the All-America
situation of the last four years, in
each of. which the Middle West has
been the dominating contributor of
all-star talent.
The easily apparent explanation is
that while Minnesota has produced
one of the great -teams of modern
times, with Ohio State another po-
tent factor, the rest of the Middle-
''western "Old Guard" has fallen off
considerably. Michigan, Nebraska,
Northwestern and Notre Dame,which
among them have turned out at
least a score of All-America stars in
the past 10 years, all have had sub-
normal seasons, speaking compara-
tively. In the case of the Wolverines,
who have rarely missed a year with at
least one representative in the All-
America parade, they have just fin-
ished the most disastrous campaign
in the history of football at Anne
Lund, Larson Unanimous ;
Under the circumstances, Minne-
sota's display of power and ability
has been all the more conspicuous.
It is no surprise to find the experts
giving something like unanimous All-
America rating to Captain Francis
(Pug) Lund, backfield ace and spark-
plug of the team, as well as to Frank
(Butch) Larson, brilliant left end.
Both overcame the handicap of in-
juries to close out remarkable careers.
To their teammates, Bill Bevan, a
spectacular guard, and Stan Kostka,
batering-ram fullback, go the honors
of places on the second or alternate
all-star array but the names of these
four by no means complete the roll
of outstanding talent on the Gopher
It is one of the main regrets of1
a remarkable college gridiron seasont
that this super-aggregation from the
adopted land of the Vikings could not
try conclusions with either Alabama
or Stanford, the two other principle
undefeated teams in major leagueE
competition and prospective oppo- I
nents in the forthcoming Rose Bowlt
classic, New Year's Day. Pittsburgh,i
although beaten by Minnesota's last-
period rally in the only close match
played by the Gophers, completes a
national "ig Four" for the 1934 sea-r
ron and it is natural enough to find c
the Panthers also contributing threeI
men to the combined all-star line-

Indiana football teams have beatenc
Minnesota but once in 12 games - in
1920, 21 to 7. Two of the games havec
ended in ties.

Cutter's Kick
Wins As Buzz
Borries Stars
Victory In Annual Classic
Is First For Midshipmen
Since 1921
Navy outfought Army today in the
mud and whipped the Cadets, 3 to 0,
for the first time since 1921 in the
annual football battle between the
rival service academies.
A 19-yard field goal from place-
ment, in the first period by Slade
Cutter, Navy's star tackle, furnished
the margin of victory as a capacity
crowd of 80,000 looked on.
Led by the sensational Fred (Buzz)
Borries, All-America halfback, and
Bill Clark, fullback punter, the Mid-
shipmen got the jump early in the
game as they capitalized their first
real scoring opportunity. Then they
defended their three-point margin
with a magnificent exhibition of de-
fensive football on a gridiron that
was turned into a quagmire by a tor-
rential rain shortly before the game
Buckler Shackled
Jack Buckler, Army ace, was shack-
led in the mud. The Cadets made a
comeback in the second period with
Maurice Simons and Capt. Joe Stan-
cook doing the ball-lugging. The best
they could do was to reach Navy's 26
after True recovered Clark's fumble
on the 35-yard line.
The victory was a brilliant climax
for Navy's first season under a new
graduate coach, Lieut. Thomas J.
Hamilton, who returned to Annapolis
this year as head coach after gaining
a reputation with his handling of Sail-
or teams on the West Coast.
Borries Bests Buckler
The outcome ended a five-game
winning streak for the Cadets over
their service rivals. West Point was
unable to make any headway in the
mud and never was inside Navy's
20-yard line. Army's ace back, Jack
Buckler, bogged down and was com-
pletely overshadowed by Borries, the
ground-gaining star of the game, as
jwell as by Clark, whose punting put
Army in the hole, prepartory to Cut-
ter's field goal.
Navy had the edge in every . de-
partment of play, but conditions were
such that neither team made much
headway. The Sailors registered
three first downs to Army's two, in-
tercepted three of West Point's five
passes and outrushed the Soldiers, 109
yards to 70. Borries gained 81 yards,
including a dash of 22 yards that was
the best from scrimmage all day, and
played a great defensive game.
