NEW YORK, Dec. 16-(RP)-The
Randolph Field Ramblers, playing
heir football in installments and
lirting with trouble too often for
heir own good, squeezed through
with a 13-6 victory over the Second
Air Force Superbombers in a Treas-
ury Bond Bowl game at the Polo
Grounds yesterday to end their sea-
son undefeated and untied.
A sparse crowd of 8,356 saw the
two Air Force rivals in a bitter
battle on a slick field, with the
first half of the game being played
under a salting of snowflakes. De-
spite the disappointing attendance,
however, the game realized approx-
imately $79,000,000 in war bonds,
due to the sale of blocks of bonds
to large investors.
The underdog Superbombers prac-
ically stole the show and had the
>rofitless satisfaction of winning the
tatistics by a wide margin and the
olace that the clock at the end of
he first half was all that stopped
hem from what seemed a certain
The publicized duel between the
Ramblers' Bill Dudley and the
Second Air Force's Glenn Dobbs
failed to materialize. Although
both stars scintillated on occasion,
the scoring marches were linked to-
gether with little help from these
two men in a ball carrying and
passing way. In fact, Dobbs was
not in the game when the Super-
bombers drove 66 yards for their
Late in the first period, the Ram-
lers came to life to score with an
ase and abruptness that was in
harp contrast to their offensive ef-
orts up to that time. From his 49-
ard line Pete Layden dropped back
nd floated a pass far, far down the
ield. Harry Burrus, who had out-
aced the secondary, turned, gath-
red in the ball and ambled the re-
.aining 15 yards over the goal.
Dobbs ran the opening kickoff
of the second half back to his 42,
and John Strzykalski followed with
a 27-yard gallop, but that was the
best the Bombers could do and
when the Ramblers took a punt on
their 17, it was their turn. They
clicked off six straight first downs,
three times plunging for their
yardage on fourth down. Dudley
finally tossed the ball to Johnny
Goodyear for three yards and the
score. Stout Elmer Madarik was
the work horse of the march, bull-
ing through time and again.
The Bombers staged their 66 yard
rive at the start of the final quart-
r without throwing a pass. Sucic,
