Homecoming Game



CLAUDE (BUDDY) YOUNG-Speedy Illinois halfback, whose attempt
to shatter Red Grange's Illini touchdown mark was stymied by the
Michigan football team. Young, who needs three touchdowns to tie
Grange's mark of 13 in a single season, was held scoreless by the
Wolverines as Illinois was defeated 14-0.

NEW YORK, Nov. 11.-Any linger-
ing doubts that Army doesn't have a
great football team this year went
out the window today as the West
Point Cadets plastered Notre Dame
with the worst defeat in N.D. history,
an ignominious 59-0 walloping be-
fcre 74,437 at the Yankee stadium.
Capitalizing on a "fifth down"
opportunity to score their first
touchdown, the Cadets quickly de-
moralized the Irish by converting
two intercepted passes to take a 20-0
first period lead, then ran riot the
rest of the game behind superb per-
formances by Glenn Davis, Doug
Kenna, Doe Blanchard, Dale Hall,
Max Minor and a flock of other
speedy backs.
At the half Army, touchdown
starved against the Irish, since 1938,
led by 33-0, bettering the 32-13 score
Navy hung on the Southbenders a
week ago.
Michigan Wins
While the Army was increasing its
prestige as the number one team in
the country, Michigan tumbled Illi-
nois, 14 to 0, in the second day of the
game before 42,200 at Ann Arbor.
In chalking up their fifth straight
win the Wolverines shackled Buddy
Young, Illinois' fast back, and stuck
to straight, old-fashioned football to
score their two touchdowns in the
first and last periods. Neither team
completed a pass.
Pennsylvania, battered on succes-
sive weeks by Navy and Michigan,
warmed up for next week's meeting
with Army by smearing Columbia,
35-7, before 40,000 at Franklin Field
in Philadelphia.
OSU Beats Pitt
Ohio State and Navy, ranked see-
ond and third in last week's Asso-
ciated Press poll, overpowered claw-
less Pitt and Cornell as expected.
The Buckeyes piled up a 54-19 score
on Pitt while Navy, led again by Bob
Jenkins and Clyde Scott, licked the
Big Red, 48-0.

Tech last week, shattered the bowl
dreams of Wake Forest by trouncing
the previously unbeaten and untied
Deacons, 34 to 0.

who scored three touchdowns, out-

A crowd of 30,000 fans was in
prospect for the game. The kickoff
was set for 2:30 p.m. (EWT) at
Briggs Stadium.
As last week in Pittsburgh, the
Lions expected to use a passing
attack to advantage against the
Card-Pitt eleven, with Frank Sink-
wich and Bob Westfall doing most of
the throwing. Last Sunday the Lions
completed 11 of 22 tosses for 194
yards and three touchdowns. All
