Irish Streak
For One Half
NEW YORK- (P)-The flood
gates finally burst late yesterday
and the mighty Irish of Notre
Dame rolled up a crushing 42 to 6
score on North Carolina, but it
was a hummer of a football game
for a half.
There probably never was a
more astonished set of athletes in
all history than were the glitter-
ing lads from South Bend when
they left the Yankee Stadium turf
at the intermission deadlocked 6
to 6 with a Tar Heel team that
had had the temerity to fight them
to a frazzle for 30 breathtaking
FLAYED BY coach Frank Leahy,
the nation's No. 1 touchdown
machine came back for the second
half filled with fire and smashed
the southern eleven all out of
shape, piling on four touchdowns
in the final period under the
stadium lights.
Calculated to lose by at least 30
points and playing without their
greatest star, Charlie Justice, the
sihgle-wing boys from Chapel Hill
surprised the pants off everybody
by whizzing over a touchdown in
the opening minute of play and
actually leading the Mid-West
terrors at the end of the first quar-

Past Quakers
In Squeakeri
my ran its unbeaten string to 19
games yesterday by edging under-
dog Pennsylvania, 14-13, in a foot-
ball melodrama that was settled
by Jack Mackmull's unerring
placement kicks.
Pennsylvania, bcttling up Ar-
my's great quarterback, Arnold
Galiffa, twice came within bare
yards of additional touchdowns.
FEELINGS RAN so high on the
final play that the Army and Penn
teams almost started a free-for-
all. Coaches and officials broke up
the battle before it got too serious.
Pennsylvania, expected to lose
by three touchdowns to the na-
tion's number two team, scored
first on a 78-yard drive in the
second period with Bob Deuber
smashing one yard for the
touchdown. Herb Agocs, the big
Penn end who played a mighty
defensive game, sent his try for
extra point far wide of the goal
posts and this proved to be the
deciding factor.
Army struck back immediately
with a 64-yard march with Jim
Cain carrying over from the five,
then added its second touchdown
in the third period with a 67-yard
drive, Gil Stephenson counting on
a two-yard buck.
with a 77-yard push in the last
period, and this time it was a
nine-yard pass, Francis (Reds)
Bagnell to Warren Horton that
did it.
It was Pensylvania's big line
that took a lot of lustre off an
Army team expected to run up
a big score on the twice beaten
Quakers. Form, however, never
has run true with these two
sharp rivals.

State's Air Attack Stalls;
Karras Sets Rush Mark

PORTLAND, Ore. - (P - The
chest and toe of Stan McGuire
and the long legs of Ken Carpen-
ter caried the underdog Oregon
State Beavers to a spectacular
25-20 football victory yesterday
over the mighty Spartans of
Michigan State College.
Oregon State was expected to
provide no more than an interest-
ing workout for the Spartans, who
have been rated highly in the na-
tional gridiron picture. For a lit-
tle morethan a quarter, the crowd
of 22.239 wondered only how high
the invaders would care to run
the count.

FOOTCUFFED-Star Indiana quarterback Nick S bek being pulled down from behindy ean uniden-
tified Michigan player. Rushing up to aid him on the tackle are Captain Al Wistert (11) and Ozzie

the scoreless first period, and
scored twice early in the second
stanza. With the count at 13-0,
against them, the Beavers had
made just three yards from scrim-
mage. Then they began to lose
their jitters, stiffening to balk
the Spartans' attack.
Suddenly Coach Kip Taylor's
Beavers busted out all over,
lashing by land and air to cover
59 yards in eight plays and
leave the score at 13-7 as the
quarter closed.
With the start of the second
half, the Beavers smashed another
59 yards on seven plays to tie the
score, and it remained at 13 all
when Stan McGuire missed a
placement try for the first time
this season.

ing a field goal 42 airline yards to
give the Beavers a 16-13 edge. The
line of scrimmage was on the 22,
but the kick actually traveled 20
additional yards.
And McGuire refused to stay
out of the Spartans' hair. Short-
ly after Michigan State received
the kickoff, he warmed down on
Everett Grandelius to block a
punt, the ball rolling beyond the
end zone for a 2-point safety.

MADISON - (A) - Bob Pe-
truska's passing and punting, plus
fine line play, gave Wisconsin a
convincing 35-13 conquest over
Iowa yesterday.
The Badgers maintained better
than a touchdown per period pace
to snare their third Western Con-
ference victory. A tie with Illinois
and a loss to Ohio State completes
the Badger record.

MORE THAN 45,000 homecom-
ing celebrants sat in a. light drizzle
to watch Coach Ivy Williamson's
fired-up squad take a 28-0 lead.
The Hawkeyes narrow it to 28-13
)efore Wisconsin wound it up
with a last period touchdown.
Petruska passed for one
touchdown, ran for another,
and figured in the rest with his
tossing. Twice he punted out
of bounds on the Iowa one yard

stripe, -and his generalship was
steady all the way.
The Hawkeyes, trailing by four
touchdowns, struck through the
air in the third period for their
first score. Gene Drahn passed 29
yards to Don Commack in the
end zone. Passes also figured in
the Hawkeyes's second touchdown.

period to climax a 67 yard march.
Drahn set a new conference

mark. Thirty-two of these came
in the second half.

BERKELEY, Calif. - (A') -
California's Bears charged into
the home stretch of a perfect foot-
ball season and within eyesight of
the Rose Bowl yesterday with a
thumping 41 to 14 victory over the
University of Oregon Ducks.
One of the largest crowds of the
season, 76,000 fans, saw Lynn

tive triumph of the year, and re-
main the only undefeated, untied

Washes Out...
LOS ANGELES - (A') - The
flashy Bruins of UCLA yesterday
whacked a stubborn University of
Washington eleven, 47 to 26, and
remained a threat to throw the
Pacific Coast Conference Rose
Bowl race into a scramble.
A UCLA win over Southern Cal-
ifornia. next week, coupled with a
Stanfordvictory over California,
would throw the race into a three-
way tie, with Cal., Stanford and
UCLA each having one conference
defeat against it.

COLUMBUS-(IP)-Ohio State's
battering Bucks, frustrated by a
stalwart Illinois crew during the
first half, exploded for 30 points
in the late-going yesterday to
snatch a 30-17 conquest before a
crowd of 81,085.
The Big Ten victory moved
Coach Wes Fesler's versatile crew
a bit nearer a Rose Bowl bid and
the Western Conference title -
only Michigan now standing in
their path.
THE UNDERDOG Illini fought
of the first three Buckeye bids
for touchdowns, throwing back
three surges to the goalpost shad-
ows while constructing a 10-point
lead in the first half on a rugged
80-yard ground march and a 12-
yard field goal by Sam Rebecca.
Even in defeat, sophomore
Johnny Karras was the game's
"Merriwell in Moleskins" for the
Illini. The fleet-footed hack
carried 14 times for 48 yards
via rushing, giving him 702
yards in that department for
the season and a new Western
Conference record.
Les Horvath of Ohio State set
the old mark of 699 in 1944-and
Karras has a game to go.
KARRAS ALSO came up with
the game's most spectacular play.
It was a 95-yard kickoff return
which moved the Illini back out
front 17-14 in the third session
after the Bucks had grabbed a
14-10 edge with two fast touch-
On his long jaunt, after tak-
ing a, handoff from Dick Raklo-
vits who took the kick, Karras
was hemmed in at least three
times on the sidelines by Ohio
tacklers. He shook them off,
however, and was going away
as he crossed the last stripe.
A week ago Ohio was 10 points
back of Pittsburgh's surprising
Panthers but came on to win 14-
10. Yesterday they spotted the
Illini 10 points, took the lead, lost
it, and then rolled on to one of
the most swashbuckling wins in
Ohio history.
Behind 17-14 in the fourth per-
iod after Karras' mighty jaunt,
the Bucks gambled on a fourth-
down plunge for two yards in mid-
field. They made good on it with
a smash at tackle by fullback
Curly Morrison, and went on in
for the winning touchdown-a 34-
yard pass from Pandel Savic to
halfback Ray Hamilton which
caught the invaders flat-footed.

Air Attack,
Defense Stop.
(Continued from Page 1)
End Les Popp, who had seen only
limited action up until yesterday's
contest but definitely played an
outstanding game for Michigan,
recovered a fumble by Robertson
on Indiana's 12 just before the
first quarter ended.
ON THE FOURTH play of the
second session Wally Teninga rac-
ed over the goal line standing up.
Harry Allis, conversion attempt
was good.
After a punt exchange Indi-
ana got under way and rolled 42
yards down the field to score.
Sebek completed a pass to An-
derson on Michigan's 26 and
then another one on the Wolver-
ines' 14 in a series of six plays.
He then ran three ground plays
and on the last one carried the
ball across himself from Michi-
gan's seven. Don Henkle split the
uprights with his kick from place-
ment to tie the ball game.
IN THE SECOND half the Wol-
verines operated like a much-im-
proved organization. On their first
march Sebek intercepted a Ten-
inga pass, but the next time they
got their hands on the ball they
went all the way.
The drive started on Michi-
gan's 47 and was climaxed by a
six-yard jaunt through tackle
by Bob Van Summern. Allis
again converted, and Michigan
fans breathed a little easier.
The Wolverines scored again the
next time they got the ball to add
a little insurance to the lead they
had assumed a few minutes earlier.
Halfback Don Peterson climaxed
a 72 yard march by taking an Ort-
mann pass on Indiana's three and
driving over the goal with Sebek
and Wayne Benner on his back.
INDIANA NEVER threatened
again in the ball game, but Michi-
gan tossed another scoring oppor-
tunity away late in the last quart-
er. Ozzie Clark blocked an Indi-
ana punt and Michigan took over
on the twelve.
In two plays the Wolverines
moved down to the four, but two
pass plays failed and the Hoosiers
took over on downs.
A series of passes filled the air
in the waning minutes of the
game, but neither team got close
to pay dirt and the game ended,
