Broncos Open
Court Season
November 26
No Returning Letter
Man on Read's Squad
Western Michigan College, twice
winner over Michigan in basketball
last season and victor as well over
Northwestern, Notre Dame and City
College of New York, has forgotten
about football and eagerly awaits
the opening of the new court season.
Coach Herbert W. (Buck) Read's
Broncos open their schedule at home
Saturday night, Nov. 25, against:
Chuck Chuckovits and his Kellogg
Field Flyers. Before the holidays,
Western also will play Michigan
twice and will meet Brooklyn College
Dec. 9 in Madison Square Garden.
Read, whose fast-break teams have
been among the best in the midwest
for years, will retain his two-team
plan which was successful last seas-
on-two fives which alternate to
maintain the speed tempo which the
veteran Bronco coach demands.
Western Michigan College hasn't
a single returning veteran from last
year but those who have watched
early drills say Read will come up
with another good squad.
On one combination, which aver-
ages over 6-feet-1, Read is using
John Stevens of Redford and Bill
Perrin of Kalamazoo State high at
the forwards, Walt Lamisk, six-foot-
three center from Yonkers, N. Y., and
Ralph Welton of Milwaukee and Har-
old Retan of Lansing at the guards.
Retan was a frosh squad player here
two years ago.

'Fighting Irish' Suffer

NEW YORK, Nov. 11.-(AP)-Army
kept from the victory column fo
13 years by Notre Dame, unleashed
all its pent-up fury today and played
patty-cake on the Irish goal line
while rambling to a 59 to 0 triumph
-worst defeat ever suffered by No-
tre Dame.
Seldom, if ever, has any team pro-
duced points with the fury of the ca-
Notre Dame, apparently set to stop
the slam-bang thrusts of Felix (Doc)
Blanchard, 205 pound fullback, was
almost driven out of Yankee Sta-
dium by the speed of Glenn Davis
Max Minor, Doug Kenna, Dale Hal
and a horde of other backs.
Blanchard, employed primarily as
a decoy in the Army attack, played
a sensational game, bursting half
the eardrums of the 74,437 spectators
in the third period with a block tha
made possible Minor's 61-yard scor-
ing return of a punt.
In the second canto he churned
his. way inside the Notre Dame 20-
yard line with such devastating forc
that head linesman Dave Reese suf-
fered a dislocated left elbow and was
unable to continue.
Blanchard, squirming for that ex-
tra yard, drove ahead, flattening half
the Notre Dame team. Reese, un-
able to get out of the way in time
was knocked down and the entire left
side of the Irish line as well as Blan-
chard and his interferers fell on him
