GREAT LAKES, Ill., Dec. 1-Great
Lakes' surprising Bluejackets, who
two years ago knocked Notre Dame
out of a national championship by
scoring in the closing seconds of their
game, today wrote a fitting finis to
big time football in Ross Field by
crushing the Irish under a last period
barrage of touchdowns, 39 to 7.
The game was the last ever to be
played on Ross FielO, which is to be
torn down next week. Frank Aschen-
brenner, 180-pound former Marquette
player, was the star as the Blue-
jackets and Lt. Paul Brown, their
coach, closed out the world war two

In smothering the Irish before a
crowd of 22,000 (CQ) sailors, the
Bluejackets outdid their "big broth-
ers" from the Naval Academy at An-
napolis. Navy had to settle for a
disputed 6-6 tie with Notre Dame, a
team beaten only by Army this sea-
son. The Irish were heavily favored
to defeat Great Lakes, despite the
fact that the jackets had won their
last five games after losing three and
tying one in their first four this sea-

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 1 - Army's
star-spangled array struck Navy, 32
to 13, as scheduled today, but not
without being given a genuine dog-
fight by the Middies in the final
gruelling 45 minutes of their annua:
1 football struggle.
A crowd of 102,000 in Municipal
Stadium, including President Tru-
man, saw the Tars recover from the
opening shocks of the Cadets' offen-
sive and not only avert what had
threatened to become a shambles, but
play the vaunted West Pointers on
virtually even terms for the greater
part of the contest.
Win 18 Straight
The difference in the final analysis
-that which gave the golden-helmet-
ed Cadets their 18th straight victory
and their second National Football
championship-was the ripping, tear-
ing running of those two great All-
America backs, Glenn Davis and Felix
Blanchard reeled off three touch-
downs and Davis the other two
through a furiously-fighting Navy de-
fense that, for surprisingly long per-
iods, checked and hamstrung what
has been called one of the greatest
attacks in gridiron history. Navy lost,
but it put up a stout battle and stead-
fastly refused to fall apart before the
Tars Score Against First Team
The Middies not only scored against
Army's first team, but they did it
twice and the second time they went
right through the middle of the
Cadets' hitherto impregnable line.
When big Joe Bartos, Navy full-
back, plunged across from the one-
foot line in the fourth period it was
the first time in nine games this year
that an opponent had gone through

The Elis rolled up a 28-0 score in
the 62nd meeting of these big three
rivals and their first since 1942 and
outplayed the Crimson so completly
that it hardly looked like a contest to
the 35,000 or so die-hard fans who
braved cold weather and snowy
stands to see the traditional game.
Fitzgerald, who was a third stringer
at Notre Dame last season and who
came to Yale as a mid-season Navy
transfer, scored three of Yale's four
touchdowns and was the principal
ground gainer of the day.

into the Rose Bowl today on a wave
of power that engulfed the battling

The Trojans, led by the rugged

pitching Jerry Bowman, thus closed
their Pacific Coast Conference sched-

earning the undisputed lead and the
bid, expected tonight, to represent
the West against Alabama's Crimson
Tide, Jan. 1.
Flashing'the savage strength of
previous USC powerhouses, the Tro-
jans ran up a 19-0 lead in the first
half, more than enough to win. The
fighting Bruins came back to count
15 points in the last half, but the is-
sue was never seriously in doubt.
