LOS ANGELES-(AP)-California's unbeaten Golden Bears turned
back the challenge of a surprisingly stubborn Southern California
Trojan eleven yesterday, rolling on toward the Rose Bowl with a 13
to 7 victory.
PLAYING BEFORE A TURNOUT of 90,890 fans, California's
hard hitting eleven outclassed but never outfought the Trojans in
60 minutes of good football.
Jack Jensen,livingup to his All-America fullback candidacy, led
the Bears on scoring drives of 65 and 88 yards in the first and third
quarters. He was the outstanding ball carrier of the day, and com-
bined his work with terrific blocking and better than fair punting.
THE FIRST, California quarterback Dick Erickson from the
15 fooled the Troys with a pass to reserve back Paul Keckley on the
two. Jensen lugged it over.
Again in the third Jensen and Jack Swaner carried the load up
field. Jensen went across from the seven.

Hal Moffie rallied a slow-starting

over Holy Cross by thrilling at

THAT outstanding performance
started after he criss-crossed with
Nick Athans, who took Johnny

After snatching Athans' handoff

EUGENE, Ore.-(/P)-The Oregon Webfoots finally shook off an
old hex in the final three minutes yesterday and chalked up a 14-13
victciy over St. Mary's Gaels.
* * * *
THE GREENHORN GALES, whose teams of a decade ago virtually
always beat Oregon,,couldn't quite manage another victory in their
renewed warfare today.
But they outdowned and outrushed the heavily-favored Web-
foots; held them scoreless for one quarter; and were leading, 13-7,
when Oregon's Norm Van Brocklin finally came to the rescue, just
before the horn.
* * * *
WITH THREE MINUTES and 5 seconds to play, Van Brocklin
tossed a pass good for 58 yards. Dick Wilkins caught the ball on St.
Mary's 35 and ran to the 13.
Once more the ace quarterback tossed the ball-13 yards straight
down the middle---to Wilkins, who reached up from three surrounding
St. Mary's players and caught it in the end zone.
Chet Daniels kicked the point that proved the victory margin.

26 and Michigan recovered and
had a golden opportunity to score,
only to have a pass from Chuck
Ortmann intercepted on the goal
line.
THE NEXT TIME the Wolver-
ines got the ball, however, they
scored.
On a series of nine plays, via
both the airsand ground route,
the Maize and Blue picked up
their first tally with an Elliott
to McNeill pass play that went
eight yards. Allis' perfect con-
version put Michigan in the lead
7-0.
But the Illini were not to be
I broken. Without giving up posses-
sion of the pigskin they drove 80
yards to score a minute before the
end of the first half.
IT LOOKED as if history was
repeating itself as Paul Patterson
eluded a half dozen Michigan
tacklers and streaked into the end
zone just as he had done two years
ago.
The tally on beautifully ex-
cuted screen pass which had the
entire Wolverine line fooled. The
successful kick made it a seven-
all ball game at the half.
Probably the most spectacular
play of the day cameon the open-
ing kickoff of the second half
when Dike Eddleman galloped 95
yards to pay dirt only to have
the pla ycalled back because of an
offside.
0- ,1 ,
AFTER THAT, it looked like the
Maize and Blue were off on an-
other of its familiar routes, when
it roared to two quick touchdowns
early in the period.
The first of the pair came in
five plays, four of which were
aerials. The score was set up
by a long pass from Ortmann to
Rifenburg on the Illini 45, where
he fumbled the pigskin only to
have it recovered by teammate
Dom Tomasi on the 39.
Three plays later another pass
to Michigan's potential All-Amer-
ican end from fuUback Tom Pet-
erson put the Wolverines one
touchdown ahead.
* * *
ON THE NEXT series of plays
Wolverine tackle Al Wahl recov-
ered an Illini fumble on the 40.

On third down, after Mich-
igan had failed to gain via the
ground route, Ortmann hurled
a long aerial to~ Rifenburg on
the goal line which fell to the
ground, but was ruled complete
because of interference.
.aTwo downs later Walt Teninga
raced around right end and went
into the end zone standing up.
Allis' conversion made it 21-7.
BUT THE fighting Illini re-
fused to accept the fate of Purdue
and Northwestern and came roar-
ing back to score their second
touchdown before the end of the
period.
Finding their ground attack
halted, the Illini took to the air
just as the quarter ended on a
twelve yard pass from Krueger
to end Tony Klimek in the end
zone.
This time the Illini missed the
attempt for the extra point and it
was 21-13.
* * *
THE MIGHTY-WILLED men
from Champaign weren't through
yet. After the Wolverines lost the
ball on downs following the en-
suing kickoff, the Illini took the
ball on their own 32.
They took to the air again, as
the amazing Kreuger literally
threw a scare into the Michigan
rooters as he completed four
straight aerials, terminated by a
tremendous 38 yard aerial to
Kersules on the 1 foot line.
Kreuger smashed over on the
next play for the score.
This time the kick was good and
it was anybody's ball game, 21-20,
Michigan.
AFTERI A SERIES of punt ex-
changes the Wolverines put the
game on ice with the final tally of
the af ternoon.
Leo Koceski took an Eddle-
man punt on the Illinois 45 and
ran it back to the 34. After fail-
ing on a long pass from Ort-
mann which Koceski couldn't
quite hold, the blond Wolverine
sophomore threw another long
one to Harry Allis that went 45
yards for a touchdown.
Allis' kick made it 28-20 and
the game, for all intents and pur-
poses was over. f

* * * -
LAFAYETTE, Ind - (AP) - Pur-
due was good enough early and
late yesterday to win its second
football victory of the year by de-
feating Marquette, 14 to 9.
In between the Hilltoppers were
best and they once had a 9 to 7
lead that made Milwaukee fans
forget four previous defeats, but
they fumbled away the game in
the last eight minutes.
Seven minutes remained when
Bob Hartman threw an 11-yard
touchdown pass to Bob Heck and
Rudy Trbavich place-kicked the
extra point.

COLLEGE STATION, Tex.-(P)
-A bruising full back, Leon
Campbell, anda rugged Arkansas
line surged over Texas A and M,
28-6, here yesterday.
A partisan crowd of 1G,000
watched the Aggies lose their
seventh straight game'this year.
Campbell smashed his way
across the goal line twice and his
terrific teammate, Olympics hur-
dler Clyde Scott, passed to Ross
Pritchard for two more touch-
downs.

25 minutes here yesterday but the
visitors had too much football
savvy for the Coast team and.
pulled away 46-21.
The teams met touchdown for
touchdown each time they got
their hands on the ball until just
before the half. Then Gene Glick,
Spartan quarterback, broke a 14-
14 deadlock by tossing two passes
-good for 59 yards - and the
Spartans were in front to stay,
21-14.
They added two more touch-
downs in the third period, two in
the final quarter, and then coasted
out with reserves.
Glick's tie-breaking passes went
first to end Hank Minarik for 46
yards, and then to end Ed Sobc-
zak for 13 yards and a touchdown.
