LOS ANGELES. Dec. 4- -
Notre Dame's mihtv Irish were
held today to a 14-14 tie by
Southern Caifornia's Trojans.
and ten minutes after the game
a real earthquake shook huge me-
morial coliseum.
MOTHER NATURE'S shudder-
ing all but matched the rumbling
of events in this vast concrete
bowl as 100.571 people saw tin-
beaten Notre Dame lucky to es-
cape with a two touchdown dead-
lock in a 60-minute battle. The
tie was gained in the final 30
seconds of this 20th renewal of
the Irish-Troy series.
And the scoreboard showed
Notre Dame 14. USC 14.
Gone was Notre Dame's proud
record of being unbeaten or un-
tied in 22 games. This one
snapped the Irish's consecutive
win streak at 21.
SAVED, HOWEVER, was their
ecord of no defeats in 28 games.
But that was thin syrup for a
battle today that found Frank
Leahy's green jersey giants forced
to scramble for a tie.
Twice in the last quarter the
under-rated. thrice-beaten Tro-
jans bent the Notre Dame ar-
mor for touchdowns. overcom-
ing a seven-point lead the
Notre Dames grabbed in the
second period as a crowd of
1051 people roared in joy or
anguish.
Then. in the final minute of the
came, 170-pound Bll Gay. a
tpeedmaster from Chicago. took
a Trojan kickff and raced it back
37 yards before he was hauled
down on the Trojan 13-yarn line.

Late in the third. halfback Jack
Kirby intercepted a Williams pas
and ran it back 12 yards to the
Irish 42. Dean Dill was spilled fo:
five yards loss, but made sever
on a run. Then he passed to Kirb

more. and from the one-yard
mark Martin found a huYe hole

ad sailed through standing up.
Dil's placement tied the count.
With three minutes or less
left to go, USC got the ball
again in midfield. Kirby ripped
off 16 yards. Dill found an end,
Ernie Tolman. for 16 yards. He
made six himself to reach the
12, and Martin hit the line for
six more. Battle took it to the
three and then Martin found a
weak spot on the other side of
the Irish line and crashed
through. Dill converted.
Then came Gaoy's spectacular!
