was the Navy by a touchdown-and
a courtmartial.
As a record Eastern football throng
of 102,000 specators shivered and re-
signed themselves to the bleak pros-
pect of a scoreless tie, the shell-
shocked Midshipmen rode out of the
grey gloom of gigantic Municipal
Stadium today to seize a decisive
break on illegal pass interference
and ride it and the Army mule to a
7 to 0 triumph, with only three min-
utes of the hectic battle left to go.
Sullivan The Goat
The break, like so many that have
decided big games and caused heat-
ed arguments this year, capped a 73-
yard march that brought victoryto
the Midshipmen and left Henry Sul-
livan, youthful cadet from Mt. Sterl-
ing, Ky., the "goat" of the game.
For it was Sullivan, by quirk of
fate, who was adjudged guilty of il-
legal interference on a 17-yard pass
tossed by Bill Ingram-a break that
gave the Midshipmen the ball on the
Army three, first down, from which
point Sneed Schmidt of St. Joseph,
Mo., took the pigskin over after three
terrific blasts at the heroic but bat-
tered Army line.
Ingram, scion of a famous Navy
family, added the extra point from
Navy had been pushed and
trampled all over the green tinted
grass before the complexion changed
with such lightning rapidity, and the
Middies drove to victory with the aid
of not one but two pass interference
rulings. Here's how it happened:
How It Happened
The Middies halted the Cadets in
the fourth on their 28 when bigt Jim
Craig fumbled 'nd Schmidt re-
covered for the Navy. Ingram braved
a pass. Jimmy Schwenck, Cadet
fullback, batted the ball down, but
the field judge, E. E. Miller of Penn
State, ruled illegal interference on
the play and Navy gained six yards.
Schmidt and Ingram passed and
drov the Cadets back with a steady
drive until a pass to Irwin Fike put
the ball on Army's 20.
Ingram then threw a low pass to
his left to Bob Antrim. Sullivan
gauged the play and batted the ball,
plucking it from the air on the Army
three. At first, the referee started
to bring the ball back to Army's 20
but Field Judge Miller rushed in,
called the penalty, and- Navy found
the door open to its second victory
in three years and 14th in the
glamorous series that began in 1890.
It wasn't easy for the line shat-
tering Schmidt from there on, but
the broken Cadets had to give. On
the first plunge, Schmidt didn't gain
an inch; on the second he picked
up a grudging two yards, and on the
third he dove high over his left
guard and it was over as the white-'
capped Middy throng went into a
frenzy of exultation.
Army Had Its Chance
With more power in the "concen-

tration camp"-that stone wall re-
gion within 20 yards of the goal they
never could cross-the Cadets might
have turned the truggle, fought be-a
fore the second biggest crowd in the
eries' history, into a rout.. *
With their elusive bundle of hu-
man TNT, 145 pound Monk Meyer,r
turning in spectacular runs, the Ca-
dets, drove to the Midshipmen's 13-
yard line in the first period only
to be stopped by great defensivet
work by six-foot Irwin Fike, Navy endf
from Normal, Ill.
In the second period, the Mule's
charges ' drove the Middies back to
their 36, to their 3 and seven-yard
stripes. Meyer failed only by inches
to make first down on Navy's 3-yard
line as Army's best chance faded. A
magnificent 70-yard punt by the
versatile Schmidt helped the Navy's

BOSTON, Nov. 28.-(UP)-Boston
College's under-rated Eagles spotted
Holy Cross two early touchdowns and
then out-battled their powerful
Jesuit rivals for a 13-12 victory in a
blinding snowstorm today before 25,-
000 at Fenway Park.
The Crusaders, capitalized two
miscues during the first five minutes
of play and appeared to have the
game well under control until several
of their strongest linemen were in-
jured in the bruising struggle, which
speedily became one of the most
breath-taking in the 34 game series.
Holy Cross scored two touchdowns
in the first period, but Quarterback
Rex Kidd's place-kicking for the ex-
tra points proved costly failures.
A minute before the first half
ended, the Eagles took off for a 55-
yard flight that ended with Di Natale
plunging over from the two-yard line
and subsequently place-kicking what
proved to be the winning point.
From then on the Eagles dominat-
ed the play and early in the final
quarter Gintoff drove over from the
three-yard line to end a determined
B. C. drive that started when Atilio
Ferdenzi, who replaced Tom Guinea
at right half, intercepted Kidd's
tenth and last pass on Boston's 45.
Bowie's Memorial
To Roman Soldier
BOWIE, Md., Nov. 28.-(P)-Ro-
man Soldier, second to Omaha in
last year's Kentucky Derby, took the
Bryan and O'Hara Memorial Handi-
cap, closing day fixture, from Mem-
ory Book by a length today to cli-
max the greatest fall record any
thoroughbred of the handicap divi-
sion ever made in Maryland.
Bowie's stewards, who have been
busy for a week trying to thwart a
gambling ring tampering with the
racers, announced a sixth case of
sponging had been uncovered on the
closing day. A sponge was dis-
covered in the nose of Calumet Dick
and was believed to have been there
when the horse ran last in a race
last Saturday.

Grid Tilt Cancelled
CLEVELAND, Nov. 28.-()-The
Cleveland Rams of the American pro-
fessional football league announced
late today, cancellation of a sched-
uled "championship game" tomorrow
with the Boston Shamrocks and said
it "marks the demise of the American

League in Cleveland."
Frank Strock, secretary of the
Cleveland Football Club, Inc., claimed
in a prepared statement Boston play-
ers "refused to come to .Cleveland
until they were paid back salaries
due them for past games."
