PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 26.-(i)--
Army bounced off the ropes with a
recovered fumble and a devastating
81-yard march in the third period to-
day to sweep Navy's hard fighting,
never surrendering football forcs in-
to defeat, 14-7, before 102,000 half
frozen fans at Philadelphia Municipal
The victory, 22nd for the Cadets
in a series of\ 39 contests noted for
their ferocity and pageantry, was as
sudden as it was sweet to a team that
trotted on the frozen tundra a heav-
ily played favorite. Navy had fought
back to gain a tie at 7-all and was
driving relentlessly deep in Army
territory-when one of its great hr's
of the game, Emmett Wood of Wil-
kensburg, Pa., fumbled. Harry Stella,
Cadet guard from Kankakee, Ill., re-
covered and the stage was set for
the thrill-packed merciless drive that
meant victory, instead of defeat or a

Army, off to a lead in the first

Chevy Chase,dMd., raced back a pun1
79 yards and the first touchdown,
was beaten and sore when the big
break came. Navy had outplayed
the Cadets so badly that their backs
only ran one play from scrimmage
in the second period as the Middes
climaxed a 50-yard drive by land and
air to scbre and then came back to
shove the West Pointers back to their
17-yard line for a first down.
Wood was a bit too anxious and his
numbed hands a bit too cold as he
grabbed the leather and prepared to
hit the line. The ball squirted out of
his hands and Stella pounced on it on
the Army 19. Ten plays later Army,
reinforced by Sydney Martin of Gil-
mer, Texas, who made 46 yards on the
first two plays, rode over the Middie
line for the final, winning touch-
Long Outstanding
Behind a line that stiffened sud-
denly, the Cadet backs slashed the
enemy wall and swept the ends al-
most at will, Long, Art Frontczak
of Dowagiac, Mich,, and Woodrow
Wilson of El Paso assisting in the
winning drive., It was Wilson who
lugged it over from the one-foot line
where the last of three crashes by
Frontczak, good for 9 of the 81 yards,
missed going through.
The hero for the Cadets, in the chill
and the gloom was Long. It was he
who set thm off for the first score
on the most brilliant run of the win-'
try, sub-zero day. It was Long who
kicked the two extra points and it
was Long who kicked several beauti-
ful punts and several times split up
the Middie defense with some of the
few passes Army attempted. Statis-
tics were all Navy, but the fumble
and one Army drive nullified them.
Navy piled up 10 first downs to five
for Army, 138 yards rushing to Army's
98 and gained 73 yards and 25 passes
to but seven for the Cadets.
Long's run was as pretty as it was
long. Both teams were maneuvering
for a break when Lemuel Cooke of
Hernando, Miss., Navy's twin hero of
the day with Wood, kicked a high one
to Long. For an instant he seemed
halted by two Navy tacklers but he
squirmed out of their reach, whirled
and hit for the center of the field.
Two Navy tacklers lunged and missed
and from the 50-yard line on it was
clear sailing. Long's kick for extra
point barely skimmed past the right

-Oklahoma's Sooners, unbeaten

The Sooners took to the air to set
the stage for two touchdowns in the
second period and added an end zone

last quarter. The Aggies never got as

of the afternoon scratching their
