In National Title Race
SOUTH BEND, Ind., Oct. 5-(P)-
Notre Dame, eyeing national football
laurels, brushed aside an outclassed
but game Pittsburgh eleven, 33-0, as
sharpshooting quarterback Johnny
Lujack staged a one-man show for
an Irish home opener throng of 50,-
368.
It was cool cunning Lujack, Navy
servicemian and star of the 1943 Irish
juggernaut, who ripped the claws
from the outmanned Panthers with
a shower of orthodox nd unorthodox
passes for Notre Dame's second
straight victory of the season.
Lujack, who completed 10 of 21
passes for a gain of 211 yards, tossed
two touchdown passes and set up two
other Irish tallies with his needle-
threading tossing.
Halfback Terry Brennan and full-
back Jim Mello scored two touch-
downs each as the Irish slashed
through the wilting Panthers for a
pair of scores each in the second and
third periods and a single payoff in
the fourth quarter.

EAST LANSING, Oct. 5-(IP)-A
potent Boston College brew of "T"
was too much for Michigan State
College today as the Eagles served the
Spartans a 34 to 20 beating in a raz-
zle-dazzle contest before 21,016 fans.
Speared by the brilliant passing of
freshman quarterback Don Panciera,
the Eagles took a 14-13 halftime lead
and then pushed over three more
touchdowns in the last two periods.
Coach Charley Bachman's Spar-
tans, with halfback Russ Reader car-
rying the load, managed to keep pace
for the first two periods but Boston
shot the MSC pass defense full of
holes after the intermission and State
had ony one scoring opportunity after
that when right halfback Bill Spiegel
broke loose after four minutes of the
third stanza and galloped 66 yards
for the State's final score.
Boston piled up a net gain of 537
yards-307 by rushing and 230 in the
air-while State made 203 on the
ground and 87 by passing.

Big Nine Card
Indiana, Wildcats Stage
Conference Surprises

By DICK KRAUS
Upsets, not setups are the key-
note Qf 1946's Big Nine Conference
campaign, and yesterday's standings
scrambling day of football activity
proved conclusively that pre-game
dope buckets are as obsolete as hoop
skirts.
On a card which featured four
Conference games there were two
'upsets, one near surpri;e, and a 43-7
romp for Illinois over a crippled Pur-
due squad. Favored Wisconsin ran
into a 28-0 shellacking at the hands
of Northwestern's Wildcats, while a
well-thought-of Minnesota eleven
went down before twice-beaten In-
diana, 21-0. Michigan squeaked past
an Iowa squad that the experts had
expected then to be snowed under.
Ohio State, after last week's tie
with Missouri, went West and humb-
led a Southern California squad that
had already envisioned a Rose Bowl
bid. Big Joe Whisler stepped into the
fullback slot vacated this season by
Ollie Cline and powered his way to
all three of the Buckeye touchdowns.
Whisler teamed up with left half
Tommy James to harms the favored
Trojans in their own baliwick.
Perry Moss sparked Illinois as
Buddy Young failed to break away
for the second straight week. The
ex-Tulsa passing ace demoralized a
Purdue eleven that concentrated on
stopping the Young's end sweeps.
The Illini and the Hoosiers re-
bounded from decisive setbacks by
Notre Dame and Michigan to score
impressive wins. Next week they will
meet at Bloomington while Wiscon-
sin battles Ohio State and North-
western tangles with Minnesota in
Big Nine games.
Iowa and Purdue take a week's
respite from Conference competition,
but the Boilermakers, who will run
into Frank Leahy's Notre Dame buzz
saw, should have a thirdETAOIN
into Frank Leahy's Notre Dame
buzzsaw, should have a third straight
nightmarish week-end. The Hawk-
eyes will face Nebraska.
There will also be a game at Ann
Arbor.

Hughson Today
sellout Crowd To See
Opener in St. Louis
By The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 5-St. Louis' own
Cardinals, who survived a rough tript
to the finals, and the highly-favored1
Boston Red Sox held their last skullt
sessions and workouts at Sports-f
man's Park today preparatory to
hooking up at 1:30 (CST) tomorrowf
afternoon in the opening game of thei
1946 World Series.c
A sell-out crowd of about 34,000
was assured for both of the games
which will be played here before the
two clubs move up to Boston to con-
tinue the struggle.c
Prospects were that a couple ofi
Texas residents, left-handed Howief
Pollet of Houston and "Tex" Hugh-t
son, a long right-hander from, Kyle,E
would be nominated as the starting
pitchers in the opener.s
Pollet, who turned in 21 victories
for the Cards during the season, in-
cluding a vital 4-2 triumph over the
Dodgers in the first play-off game,
was certain to go for freshman man-
ager Eddie Dyer if the strained
shoulder muscle which has hampered
him recently is not too painful when
he warms up tomorrow.
Although manager Joe Cronin of
the Sox had not stated a definite
choice among his "big three"-Hugh-
son, Dave "Boo" Ferris and Mickey
Harris--the Cards felt it was a fore-
gone conclusion they would have to
look at Hughson.

WEST POINT, N. Y., Oct. 5-(P)
-The Big Red of Cornell saw red
often enough today to pile up more
points against Army's footballers
than any other grid outfit has done
for three years, but not nearly often
enough to stop the Cadets from ca-
reening to their 21st straight victory,
46 to 21.
Not since Notre Dame kicked the
Army mule all around the Yankee
Stadium in 1943 has an upstart set
of gridders dared to do what the Cor-
nells did this time, actually leading
for a few moments in the first quar-
ter, then coming up off the floor to
score twice more in the closing half.
Doc Blanchard of Army was on the
sidelines again for the second straight
Saturday, but his touchdown twin,

Davis Leads Army to 46-21
Triumph over Scrappy Cornell

Ir .8

Glenn Davis, was more than enough.
The California comet whizzed over
for four touchdowns-three of them
in the first quarter.
More than any other club this sea-
son, Cornell demonstrated that the
Army second team isn't too strong.
Two Cornell touchdowns-at the end
of the third quarter, when rapid-run-
ning Wally Kretz went over after
Bob Dean's passes had set it up, and
at the start of the final chapter when
Jack urns heaved a 22 yarder to
Hillard Chollet-were counted against
the Army second stringers.
Army got off to a galloping run-
ning start on the third play of the
game when Davis sliced inside his
own right end and was off and run-
ning for 63 yards and the opening
score.
