ris Humiliate Navy, 40-0,
As They Set Modern Record

Big Ten Champs Extend Bid
For Third Straight Crown

chine-like Notre Dame bopped
Navy yesterday, 40 to 0, handing
the Middies the worst defeat in
their football series that began in
1927. It was the 33rd game with-
out defeat for the Irish who set a
modern record.
Showing their gridiron wares to
an Eastern audience for the first
time this season, the Fighting
Irish broke the game wide open
with a 20-point assault in the
second quarter. They coasted from
there on.
Navy made a whale of a game
of it for one quarter, and part of
the second. Then, zing, zing,
zing, came the touchdowns.
They were like stiletto stars in
the dark. The befuddled Middies
never knew from which direc-
tion they were coming.
The chief Notre Dame slasher
was Ernie Zalejski, a skittering
left halfback from, South Bend,
Ind., home of the Big Green Gang
that Coach Frank Leahy has
welded into the Nation's no. 1
football outfit.
Zalejski scored three of the
six Notre Dame touchdowns as
he became the main actor in the
affair put on before a sellout
crowd of 62,413 in Babe Ruth
Ernie got Notre Dame out in
front in 4:35 of the opening per-
iod. He grabbed a 22-yard toss
from Quarterback Bobby Willians
on Navy's 25. He was in the clear,
and merely romped the rest of the
way. The Irish probably would
have scored sooner, but Navy won
the toss and Notre Dame had to
wait to get the ball. It took only
five plays.
After fooling around the rest
of the period and stopping two
amazing Navy drives, Notre
Dame dropped the roof on the
boys from Annapolis in the sec-
ond quarter.
Right half Larry Coutre started
the business by taking the ball on
a delayed buck on his nine yard
line. A big hole opened in the
Navy line, and away Larry went
on a 91-yard touchdown jaunt.
Tennessee took most of the steam
out of famed Charlie (Choo Choo)
Justice yesterday, came up with
a triple-threat star in Hal Little-
ford, and defeated North Carolina
35 to 6 in one of the major upsets
of the 1949 football season.
North Carolina was a two
touchdown favorite but Tennes-
see's tough line and a glue-like
pass defense dashed the hopes
of the Tar Heels to regain na-
tional ranking in preparation
for their big game with Notre
Dame in Yankee Stadium, New
York, November 12.

powerful Army Cadets coasted to
their sixth straight victory of the
season yesterday over a deter-
mined but outmanned Virginia
Military Institute team, 40 to 14.
After the brilliant Arnold
Galiffa had propelled the Army
regulars to a safe 27-0 margin at
half time, Coach Earl Blaik sent
in all the players he could locate,
including his son Bob, with the
result that the Red Jerseyed visi-
'ors made quite a match of it in
the last two quarters.
Toward the end of the third
period, Taylor Hay, a substitute
VMI end, made the long-
est run of the game, a 77 yarder,
after snatching an Army fumble
out of the air. An intercepted
pass and a fifty yard sprint by
Halfback Fred Anson gave the
Virginians their second score
just before the contest ended.
Had not Blaik jerked his hard
smashing regulars after the vic-
tory was safe the score might
have mounted to any given fi-
gures. Gil Stephenson, the Cadets'
first string fullback, saw no action
at all, having been advised to give
his injured leg a rest.
Galiffa, who handles the ball
on every play in Army's T-forma-
tion, had an important hand in
scoring the game's first three
touchdowns. He circled end for
seven yards and the first score to
cap a 68 yard drive midway of
the opening period.

verine attack clicked and that was
more than enough.
Early in the second period
halfback Charlie Ortmann
heaved a pass from his own 49
to end Harry Allis on the Illinois
32. Allis reached up with one
hand, batted the ball into the
air, caught it on the dead run
and covered the remaining 30
yards to the goal line unmolest-
ALLIS THEN converted the
extra point to put Michigan ahead,
In the fourth quarter, the
Peterson brothers, Don and Tom,
a sterling combination yesterday
afternoon, sparked a Wolverine
drive that ended with Tom
plunging over from the 1-foot
line to put the Wolverines ahead
13-0. Allis's attempted conver-
sion was wide.
Illinois threatened seriously only

mined as yet.
ter sparked by Karras' 56 yard
twice. They marched 77 yards in
six plays early in the third quar-

jaunt but halfback Ron Clark
fumbled on the Wolverine 3 and
Wally Teninga,- who played a tre-
mendous game all afternoon, re-
covered for Michigan.
* *
THEN STANDING against his
own goal posts Teninga got off a
magnificent punt which sailed out
of bounds on the Illinois 37, a
distance of 73 yards from the point
where it was kicked.
Late in the fourth period the
Illini again drove deep into Wol-
verine territory but the Mich-
igan defense tightened and
halted the drive on the 14 yard
Cornell Routs
Erged rLions
ITHACA, N.Y. --(P)-Unbeaten
Cornell ran amok in a 34-point
fourth quarter yesterday routing
outclassed Columbia, 54-0 in a
game marred by frequent penal-
ties against the enraged Lions.
Even Coach Lou Little of Co-
lumbia drew a 15-yard fine for
walking on the field to protest a
penalty during the final minis
as Cornell threatened to matcU
Army's 63-6 romp over the Lions
last week. At times it seemed that
the field was covered with red
flags, dropped by energetic men in
white. They paced off a total of
613 yards.

Doak Kicks
Point in 7-6
DALLAS - (P) - All-America
Doak Walker came off the bench
for another golden moment yes-
terday. Kicking the extra point
that brought Southern Methodist
a breath-taking 7-6 victory over
Appearing in only 11 plays and
obviously a weak young man as
the result of a siege of influenza,
the great Walker was the man
when the time came.
Hammering Kyle Rote, great
Southern Methodist halfback,
had taken a pass and skipped to
the touchdown that tied the
score. It was 6-6, only because
Raleigh Blakeley, Southern
Methodist wingman, had
crashed through to block Ran-
dall Clay's try for point.
Then the hushed throng of
75,000 watched Walker as he stood
there and aimed at the Texas goal
posts. Back came the ball and
Walker stepped into it.

JVs Valuable as Varsity's Mock Foes



What has become of the Junior
Varsity football squad?
The facts are these: (1) There
are football players generally re-
fered to as JV's running loose on
Ferry Field each day, but the only
action they see is when they crash
skulls with the varsity as they
line up in the defensive forma-
tions that the scouts have seen
the Wolverines' opponents utilize;
(2) Once in a while they are
fortunate enough to work into
some defensive action when
they run through the plays that
the same scouts have seen the
same opponents of the Maize
and Blue use in early games in
the season;
(3) The Jay-Vees had a couple
of mid-season games scheduled
with other conference schools, but
they have been canceled.
* * *
IN EXPLANATION of the can-

cellation of a game that was sche-
duled between the Michigan and
Illinois Junior Varsity squads for
last Friday, Jerry Wynn of the
Daily Illini wrote:
"The Wolverines apparently
have decided to concentrate all
their efforts on the Varsity, and
notified Illinois that they will
no longer field a junior varsity
team this year ...."
It may be that Wynn was writ-
ing in an attempt to build up the
collective ego of the Illini varsity;
but whatever his purpose, he was
flying high on the wrong beam
when he made such a statement.
discontinue their J-V schedule in
order to expend all efforts on im-
provement of the varsity squad.
The reason the games were
canceled is because there just
aren't enough men to constitute
a playing squad.

But Wynn seems to feel that
this isn't audacious enough, and
he continues by saying:
... A pre-season score from
Ann Arbor had the varsity beat-
ing their Jayvees, 90-0-could
be the reason."
Perhaps Mr. Wynn has not been
informed that no one bothers to
keep score during varsity-jayvee
scrimmages, since first downs are
not counted and the ball is usual-
ly moved back to the line of scrim-
mage regardless of gains made by
either team.
