BOSTON--(P)-With little Al Di Marco pitching and Jack Dittmer
catching, Iowa's Hawkeyes came from behind to trounce Boston
University's outclassed Terriers, 34-14, yesterday before 12,848 chilled
fans at muddy Fenway Park.
THE HAWKEYES, trailing 7-14 at the halftime, exploded for 21
points in the third and fourth periods to win going away. Two of
those last half scores were aerial thrusts from Di Marco to Dittmer
that went for 60 and 32 yards, respectively.
It was the final game for both teams. Iowa wound up the
season with a 4-5 record, while the Terriers finished with a 6-2
Once Iowa started rolling in the third period Boston University
proved no match for the hard-running backs and hard-charging line-
men from the Mid-West.
LAFAYETTE, Ind.-(/P)-Purdue rose to its early season power
yesterday and smashed through Indiana for ,,a 39 to 0 victory tc
bring the Old Oaken Bucket back to Lafayette.
It was a great climax for Purdue, the third victory of a season
which opened with a thrilling one-point loss to Notre Dame.
For coach Stu Holcomb it was a sweet victory, too, because it
is the first time in five years that the traditional Old Oaken Bucket
has come back to Lafayette.
HARD-CHARGING halfback Harry Szulborski paced Purdue's
slashing ground game as he bucked over for the first Boilermaker
score after three and a half minutes of play and then raced 30 yard.:
just one minute later for the second six-pointer.
Quartberack Bob DeMoss accounted for two other Boiler-
maker touchdowns, and Norb Adams and reserve fullback, Jack
Milito banged over the others.
As a gesture to retiring Captain Phil O'Reilly, the last extra point
was added on a plunge. O'Reilly, normally a tackle, plunged over for
that one point.

gan State's long-sought berth in
the Big Nine appeared all but
made up today.
With the Western Conference's
annual meeting only three weeks
away, the Spartans seemed nearer
than ever before to their goal.
In Chicago, The Daily News
reported that acceptance was a
"virtual certainty," and predict-
ed the vote would be 6-3.
Completion this year of Mack-
lin Stadium, with seating for 50,-
136, gave Michigan State a strong
bargaining point. The stadium is
sixth largest in the Midwest.
Also highly in the Spartans'
favor is their remarkable record
on the gridiron this season.
They started by holding mighty
Michigan to a narrow 13-7 mar-
gin. They tied powerful Penn

opponents except Notre Dame,
which won 26-7.
The Chicago Daily News listed

the paper said "political pressure,"
will align Michigan behind the
Spartans before the conference
meeting Dec. 10-12 in Chicago.

Higgins had nothing but praise
for the Panthers after they had
upset the Nittany Lions 7 to 0.
It was the first defeat in their
last 18 games.
"When you lose to a team that
played like Pitt today, alibis are
uncalled for," Higgins commented
