THAT'S ALL, GEORGE-Indiana's triple-threat halfback, George Taliaferro, in the process of being
brought down by Lloyd Heneveld after picking up three yards on an a fake pass play. That's Quent
Sickels (62) coming up on the right to help Heneveld out as Hoosier center Joe Polce (59) starts to
throw a block at the Michigan defensive guard. Al Wahl (72) races up from behind to assist. Ernest
Kovatch, Indiana left end, (81) is the other recognizable player. Though he was stopped this time,
Taliaferro shone brilliantly in a losing cause.
Indiana's ClydeSih Lauds Woveris

"Michigan has a great football
team, one that is very well
coached," said Indiana coach,
Clyde Smith, in the Hoosier dress-
ing room after yesterday's game.
"You can't single out any one
man on that team-that's what
makes them so great," the Hoosier
mentor added.
And like Navy's coach, George
Sauer, Smith refused to compare
the Irish of Notre Dame, who
were given a whale of a time by
Northwestern yesterday, with
Michigan, saying, "It's not my ar-
gument. They both have great
The 54-0 score was the biggest
rolled up by Michigan this season
and was the widest margin over
the Hoosiers in 23 years. Back in
1925 the Wolverines trounced an
Indiana team, 63-0.
Smith continued his praise of
Michigan saying, "Michigan has a

, _

very clean ball club and should be
complimented on it."
When asked why George Talia-
ferro, who was far and away one
of the finest backs seen in Ann
Arbor this year, did not come into
the game in the second half except
for one punting assignment, Smith
said that the star half-back was
badly bruised and had a tightened
leg muscle.
"You can't play teams like Min-
nesota and Notre Dame on succes-
sive week-ends without coming out
the worse for wear," Smith added.
Over in the Michigan dressing
room, Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
was profuse in his praise of Talia-
ferro. "He's a great back. Indiana
certainly missed him in the sec-
ond half."
Oosterbaan lauded the work of
all of the 44 Michigan players who
saw action in the game. "They all
did a very fine job out there to-
day," he said.
"Indiana had a lot of tough

breaks in the second half which
made things easy for us," the Wol-
verine coach continued.
Michigan recovered four of
seven Hoosier fumbles and con-
verted all of them into scores. In
addition, the Wolverines inter-
cepted four Indiana passes, one of
which led to a touchdown.
Oosterbaan also paid tribute to
Don Robinson, coach of the jay-
vee team, who scouted Indiana.
"Don did a fine job of scouting.
His information was invaluable."
Michigan's successor to Fritz
Crisler had a word to say about
Wally Teninga's second period,
60-yard punt which went out of
bounds on the Indiana one yard
line. "It was a punter's dream,"
Oosterbaan said. "It went down
there just as if he. had aimed it
out of a shotgun."
There were no Michigan injuries
reported, althought reserve quar-
terback Irv Small and Don Hersh-
berger, substitute end, were helped
off the field in the closing min-
uttes of the game.
Both were reported by Dr. A. W.
Coxon, team physician, to be
physically fit and ready to take
part in next week's game with
Ohio State at Columbus.

SOUTH BEND, Ind.-Two un-
heralded substitutes, William Gay
and John Landry, brought Notre
Dame from behind to defeat
Northwestern 12 to 7 yesterday in
a bruising battle of football titans.
Their heroic last quarter touch-
down march came after Art Mur-
akowski put Northwestern ahead
7-6 on a 90-yard run when he
intercepted Francis Tripucka's
pass. This was Notre Dame's 20th
consecutive victory and it put
Coach Frank Leahy's name in the
records alongside that of the great
Knute Rockne.
Leahy's team has now gone
26 games without defeat, count-
ing the 1946 scoreless tie with
Army, equalling the brilliant
string Rockne spun with his last
teams in 1929 and 1930.
Notre Dame scored first on a
91 yard march in the first period
before the capacity crowd of 59,-
305, with John Panelli carrying it
over from the two yard line. Until
near the end of the third quarter
it looked like this would be all
that either team could do.
But then, with Notre Dame
on the march, Murakowski
jumped high into the air to take
Tripucka's pass and dart down
the sidelines. Jim Farrar's con-
version put Northwestern ahead,
and it almost seemed that the
year's biggest football upset was
in the making.
But the 170-pound Gay and the
180-pound Landry came driving
down the field, starting from
Notre Dame's 37 yard line. Gay
carried it over from the one-foot
mark to keep Notre Dame's rec-
ord untarnished.
Notre Dame, ranked narrowly
second only to Michigan in the
latest A.P. poll, was favored to de-
feat its ancient rivals from the
Big Nine by two touchdowns.
A rmy 26, Penn 20
Only 30 seconds away from defeat
at the hands of an amazing Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania eleven,
Army struck 15 yards through the
air for a touchdown and a 26 to
20 victory that tore the hearts
out of the majority of 78,000 spec-
tators today.
Overwhelming favorites seeking
their eighth straight triumph, the
Cadets were forced to fight from
behind three times and needed a
dazzling 103-qard runback of a
kickoff by Bobby Jack Stuart to
subdue the battling Quakers. It
was a thriller all the way.
The big clock showed exactly
a half-minute to go when Ar-
nold Galiff a, Army quarterback,
fell back and fired a strike into
the arms of John Trent, an end,
beyond Penn's goal line to settle
the issue. The vast crowd, a
moment before yelling almost
as one, fell silent, stricken.
Only moments before, Ray
Dooney, Penn's stocky, 200-pound
fullback, had blasted through
Army's line and legged it 42 yards
for the score that put the Quakers
in front, 20-19, and apparently
spelled Army's doom. Few would
have risked a thin dime on the
Cadets' chances of keeping an un-
blemished slate.

Then Army took an out-of-
bounds kick on its own 26, and
with the minutes ticking off, Ga-
liff a began throwing footballs. In
six plays, including a 21-yard Ga-
liffa to Dave Parrish aerial, the
Black Knights swept to the Quaker
15, annd on third down Galiffa hit
the jackpot.
Justice Paces NC
WASHINGTON-A band of op-
portunists, North Carolina's Tar-
heels climbed back into a promi-
nent post-season bowl position
yesterday by setting down Mary-
land, 49-20 before 34,588 fans in
Griffith Stadium.
'The Tarheels pounced on fum-
bles and passes like hungry birds
after a worm and turned most of
them into scores. Last week's 7-7
tie with William and Mary was the
first time North Carolina has been
stopped in 14 games.
North Carolina broke the
game wide open in the second
quarter after a 7-7 standoff in
the opening period. The Tarheels
'capitalized on two fumbles and
marched 44-yards for another
tally to run up a 28-7 lead.
From then until the last min-
ute when Maryland scored twice,
it was a near riot as North Caro-
lina ran up a 42-7 advantage by
Early in the fourth period.
While Charlie Justice failed to
hog the show he caused plenty of
trouble when and where it hurt
Maryland. He threw touchdown
passes of 18 and 16 yards to Ken
Powell and Bob Kenney in the big
second quarter. In the third he
caught a five yard scoring toss
from Hosea Rodgers while his
punting averaged 44 yards.
Bears Win Ninth
BERKELEY, Calif.-California's
Bears, generating the same tre-
mendous power that has %ept
them unbeaten and untied, scored
a cruching 44-14 victory over the
Washington State Cougars yester-
day, a crushing 44-14 victory over
the Washington State Cougars
A crowd of 40,000 watched the
Bruising Bears rattle off long
touchdown marches, turn inter-
cepted passes into scores and
tally on a safety.
It was California's ninth win of
the season and fifth consecutive
conference triumph. In their next
to last engagement of the regular
schedule, made an impressive
showing'to remain neckandneck
with the University of Oregon in
their race to the Rose Bowl.
Oregon, incidentally, kept its
conference slate clean with a
26-7 win over UCLA last night.
California's. charging line and
huge yardage gains by a host of
backfieldmen combined to outclass
the willing Cougars completely.
The initial score came late in
the opening period when Jack
Swaner went over from the one
foot line, climaxing a 35 yard ad-
vance. Swaner also counted the
second touchdown, battering
through for the last yard on the
tail end of an 86-yard drive.

Texs' Power
Downs Texas
Christian, 14-7
FORT WORTH, Tex. - (A) -
Texas' bruising power paid off
with two quick touchdowns in the
third quarter and the Longhorns
plugged their leaky pass defense
enough to dump Texas Christian
University, 14-7, here yesterday.
The pin-point passing of Lindy
Berry sent Texas Christian into a
second quarter lead, but big Ray
Borneman and Randall Clay tore
the middle of the Horned Frog
line to bits in the second half.
On the third play of the third
quarter, Borneman broke through
the center of Texas Christian's
line and squirmed and twisted his
way 60 yards to a touchdown.
Within six minutes the Steers
struck again. Byron Gillory
climaxed a 64-yard drive with a
wide end that ate up the needed
two yards for the touchdown that
beat the Frogs. It was the Grogs'
fourth straight defeat in their
home stadium this year.
