NOTRE DAME. Ind. -Mighty
Notre Dame took no chances with
Southern California yesterday and
scored twice in the first quarter
and added another tally in each
session after that to drub the Tro-
jans, 32-0.
An Irish bobble early in the first
period gave the Trojans the ball
on the Notre Dame 25, but USC
couldn't get any closer than the
12 , yard line and the Irish took
over. That was as close as they
got all day.
* * *
LEON HART, who played a ter-
rific ball game all day long, both
in the Green backfieldand at end,
was responsible for stopping the
Trojans' early threat. He rushed
passer Dean Schneider and knock-
ed the ball out of his hands and it
was recovered by Notre Dame on
their own 22.
The Irish' couldn't quite get
up steam enough to sustain a
drive at this stage of the game
and were forced to punt. A
Southern California pass on
fourth down failed and Notre
Dame took over on the USC 40.
On the third play of the series
Bob Williams shot a pass to
Hart on the' Trojan seven and
he lugged the ball over with
three minutes left in the quarter.
Less than two minutes later the
Irish scored again when John Pet-
itbon intercepted a Trojan pass
on the USC 43 and scampered
down the far sideline. Steve Or-
acko's conversion attempt was
blocked this time and Notre Dame
led, 13-0.
* ~* *
THE IRISH capitalized on a
Southern California miscue for
their next score late in the first
half. Williams punted over Jay
Roundy's head, and Roundy made

a grab for the ball. He touched it
but it rolled away and Bill Barrett
recovered for Notre Dame on the
Trojans' 25.
Barrett smashed through \the
line to the 12. Hart, playing in
the Notre Dame backfield on this
play, crashed through to the
five. Then the fleet-footed full-
back, Emil.Sitko, raced around
end and dove over the goal line.
Oracko's kick was wide this time,
and the Irish led at halftime,
Notre Dame got its first sus-
tained drive underway early in
the third quarter. Starting from
their own 40 the Irish moved the
ball downfield in 13 plays to make
the score 25-0. The conversion
attempt was again blocked.
SOUTHERN California muffed
another scoring opportunity the
next time they got the ball. Jim
Powers, standing on his own 25,
flipped a pass to end Bob Stillwell
on the Irish 35 yard line. He was
completely behind the Notre Dame
defenders but cut back for a mo-
ment to set himself after the catch.
He was downed on the 22 yard
line, and after another series of
passes Notre Dame took over.
Notre Dame's last touchdown
climaxed a drive which begain on
their own 46. Williams passed
32 yards to Barrett. Hart made
it a first down on the Trojan 15,
Ernie Zalejski powered to the
six, and then in two tries Bar-
rett carried it over the goal.
Oracko's kick was good this time
and Notre Dame stood on the
long end of the 32-0 score.
In the remaining nine minutes
in the ball game Coach Frank
Leahy emptied the Notre Dame
bench, giving. the seniors on the
club a chance to play, their last
game in the Notre Dame stadium.

GIMME MORE ROOM-Halfback Pat Duff (36) of USC runs for a short gain against Notre Dame
in the first period before he is brought down by Jim Martin. Groom (50) and Bob Lally (60) of
Notre Dame are closing in for the kill while Jess Swope (79) and Bill Martin (44) of USC attempt
to clear the path for the runner. The Trojans failed to capitalize on the opportunities handed to
them in the first quarter as the Irish defense proved too much of a hurdle. The Notre Dame offense
operated at peak efficiency also as the Irish rolled to two touchdowns in the first quarter and added
another one in each succeeding period.

most encouraging feature of the
1949 statistics is that not only
the leaders, but also most of the
top men in the rushing, passing,
pass receiving and scoring fields
will be wearing Maize and Blue
uniforms again next year.

LSU Stuns Tulane, 21-0, as Rice whips Baylor, 21-7
4)~ B

By The Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS -- Louisiana
State University's Tigers fought
with fire in their veins to crack
Tulane's running attack and win
a frenzied football game over their
arch rivals, 21-0, yesterday.
LSU's victory possibly sent Tu-I
lane's confident hopes of a Sugar
Bowl bid spinning into space.
THE VICTORY gave the Bayou
Bengals wins over the champions
of three conferences - Tulane of
the Southeastern; Rice of the
Southwest and the University of

North Carolina of the Southern
About 80,000 fans were kept
screaming on their feet as LSU
completely outplayed the favor-
ed Tulane Green Wave.,
Coach Gaynell Tinsley's super-
charged team was also vastly su-
perior on defense. A dull-edged
Tulane eleven couldn't find run-
ning space.
Rice in Bowl
HOUSTON, Tex.-Rices Owls
used a powerful ground attack and


a break yesterday to defeat Baylor
21 to 7 and take the Southwest
Conference championship and be-
come host to North Carolina in the
Cotton Bowl.
A standing room crowd of 31,000
saw the Owls stop the effective-
ness of the strong Baylor passing
attack, overcome a touchdown def-
icit and move to their first undis-
puted title since 1937.
Immediately after the game,f
Dan Rogers, head of the Cotton
Bowl, announced in Fort Worth
that North Carolina had accept-
ed an invitation to meet the
Southwest Champions January 2
in Dallas.
Baylor had entered yesterday's'
tilt a game behind the Owls and
needed a victory to clinch a tie in
final standings and the automatic
bid as. the Cotton Bowl classic
The victory gave Rice its first
undefeated Conference campaign
record in history. An early season

55-12 trouncing Holy Cross handed
them back in 1942.
* * * ,
IN ADDITION to his four touch-
downs, Petela made good on 10 of
11 extra point trys for a total of
34 points.
It was a sad finish for the
most futile team in Holy Cross'
53-year old gridiron history.
Never before have the Crusaders
been beaten nine out of 10 times.
And never before have they suffer-
ed such humiliation.
Boston College head coach Den-
ny Myers performed something of
a miracle to prevent his eager
fourth and fifth stringers from
piling the score even higher during
the fourth period.

A record crowd of 48,000 in
Kenan Stadium - 3,500 more
than the field's rated capacity-
saw Coach Carl Snavely's club
drive its way to its third post-
season bowl bid in four seasons.
The Cotton Bowl invitation was
the first for a Tar Heel team. On
New Year's Day in 1947, North
Carolina dropped a 20-10 decision
to Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.
Last New Year's Day, North Caro-

homa by 14-6.
THE RESULT left North Caro-
lina with a record of seven wins
and three losses for the season.
The Tar Heels stopped North
Carolina State, Georgia, South
Carolina, Wake Forest, William
and Mary, Duke, and Virginia.
They lost to Notre Dame, Tennes-

It was a near thing for the
