MIAMI, Fla. - ( P) - Kentucky
will meet Santa Clara in the
Orange Bowl game here Jan. 2.
Kentucky won the choice for the
bright bowl spot Friday night by
walloping the University of Miami
(Fla.), 21 to 6.

KENTUCKY and Miami knew
Friday night that a bowl bid rested
in the balance as they staged one
of the most spectacular games of
the year in the Orange Bowl
Stadium, where Miami's Hurri-
canes play all their home games.
Miami would have earned the
Orange Bowl spot had it won.
But the inspired Hurricanes
could not blow down the opposi-
tion of a more skillful, faster
and surer team, and the Wild-
cats clawed their way into the
New Year classic.
Kentucky won nine games and
lost only to Southern Methodist
and Tennessee this year.
SANTA CLARA'S twice-beaten
and once-tied team accepted the
other Orange Bowl bid Tuesday
while enroute home from a 28-21
defeat at the hands of Oklahoma.
They will be the first Cali-
fornia team to play in Florida's
Orange Bowl. Santa Clara made
two trips to the Sugar Bowl at
ew Orleans, defeating Louisiana.
State, 21-14, in 1937 and repeat-
ing against the samle team in
1938 by a 6-0 score.
Kentucky never has played in a
major post-season bowl game.
BRYANT'S arrival in 1946 lifted
the Kentucky gridiron machine
out of the conference doldrums. In
four years his boys have chalked

Middies Absorb Worst
Shellacking in 46 Years

Army team rose to the height of
its awesome power yesterday to
crush Navy, 38 to 0, in the most
one-sided beating ever administer-
ed in the 50 games played between
the service rivals.
A shivering crowd of 102,443, in-
cludirig President Truman, packed
in Municipal Stadium, saw the
rugged Black Knights drive to a
touchdown from the initial kickoff
and then, under the brilliant direc-
tion of Arnold Galiffa, rip and
tear the Middies into abject sub-

ONLY ONCE before in the his-
tory of the classic did a team take
a mauling to compare with that
HUGH QUINN, Night Editor
absorbed by the Middies yesterday.
That was in 1903, in the infancy
of the series, when another Army
eleven smashed Navy by 40 to 6.
So completely outclassed were
the boys from Annapolis that
they penetrated Army territory
only once, late in the third quar-
ter, and then they were halted
after 47 yards short of a score by
the fierce-tackling Cadets.
It was in every respect a com-
plete rout for the Middies, just as
it was a sublime triumph for the
huskies from West Point as they
completed their 20th straight game
without having tasted defeat. Ar-
my scored in every period, and to-
ward the end her reserves were

NOT SINCE 1943 has Navy won'
in this long series which now
stands 27-19 in the Cadets' favor.'
This one yesterday, though, was
the one which will be longest re-
membered when the men of the
Army gather at the world's out-
The names which will be re-
membered longest, probably, are
those of Galiffa, the team's
great field general from Donora,
Pa., and Gil Stephenson, a dart-
ing, wicked - running fullback
from Columbus, Ga. Between
them, they wrecked a Navy team
which went into the contest
thinking it had a chance to win.
Stephenson, who was crippled a
year ago and played only briefly
in Navy's "upset" 21-21 tie, gained
a full measure of satisfaction as
he sifted through the Middies for
three touchdowns yesterday. It
was he, more than any other Army
runner, who knocked the breath
out of the Tar's in Army's 67-yard
march to its first touchdown when
the game was only minutes old.
GALIFFA, finishing his football
span at the Point, was. complete
field general. Not only did he pass
destructively, especially in the first
half, when he connected on eight
aerials for a gain of 101 yards, but
he also carried the mail.
Army's driving backs dug for a
total of 310 yards with the ball
underneath their arms. Navy's
carriers picked up only 66 yards
all afternoon. Had it not been for
Art Landry, backing up the line
for Navy, the score undoubtedly
would have mounted much higher.

Georgia Tech

By 7-6 Count
Fumbles Account
For Low Scores
ATLANTA, Ga.,-(P)--Bobbled
balls and passes caught by the
wrong side held down the score
yesterday in a free flowing Georgia
Tech-Georgia offensive battle
which Tech won, 7-6, on the kick-
ing toe of Red Patton.
Tech's injured and braced-up
quarterback Jimmy Southward
scored the touchdown after Coach
Bobby Dodd finally consented for
him to run a play or two in this
his final college game.
* * *
THIS WAS the first one-point
Tech-Georgia game since 1933
when Georgia won 7-6, and makes
this Georgia's worst season since
1939. Georgia has lost six games.
Floyd Reid fumbled twice but
he was a brilliant runner for
Georgia. By far the best-to-
watch play of the game was
Reid's 42-yard dash from his
six. A Georgia fumble later
ended that thrust.
Late in the third quarter little
Jimmy Jordan brought back a
punt to the Georgia 40. Nine plays
later Tech had its touchdown.
Patton's kick was perfect.
NORTH'S FUMBLE in the sec-
ond quarter handed the ball to
Georgia on its 45-yard line. Sopho-
more Mal Cook threw a high looper
to Gene Lorendo. The Minnesotan
took the ball on Tech's 20 and
waddled across with Tech men
firing at him but always missing.
Bob Durand missed his kick.

FORT WORTH, Tex.-(R)--Lit-
tle Lindy Berry, the Rock of Texas
Christian, said his valedictory- to
college football yesterday by pass-
ing and running his team to a 21-
13 victory over Southern Metho-
Berry scored one touchdown and
passed for two more as the Horned
Frogs licked the Methodists for
the first time in seven years.
THE CHRISTIAN quarterback
threw 27 passes and completed 17
for 250 yards. He also netted 31
yards carrying the ball. The game's
top runner was Kyle Rote of
Southern Methodist, who rolled
up 102 -yards in 13 carries.
All-American Doak Walker of
SMU sat out most of the last
half as the result of a leg in-
jury. It was after his departure
from the game that the Horned
Frogs swept to the victory that
gave Texas Christian a tie for
third place with Texas in the
Southwest Conference standings.
A crowd of 33,000 jammed
Horned Frog Stadium to watch
the durable Berry, who has played
41 games in four years for TCU
and gained nearly four miles -of
territory rushing, passing, run-
ning back kicks and kick-offs and
returning intercepted passes.
FOR SOUTHERN Methodist it
was a bitter pill. The Methodists,
picked before the season started
to win the Conference champion-
ship, thus closed out in fifth place
with two victories, three losses
and one tie.
Southern Methodist scored
first on a 37-yard run by big
Kyle Rote with Walker kicking
the extra point.
Texas Christian tied it up in
the second period on the passing
of Berry. From the Texas Chris-
tian 14 Berry threw to George
Boal who tore his way to -the
Southern Methodist 29. A pass
from Berry to Jimmy Hickey made
the touchdown. Homer Ludiker

lead early in the fourth period,
scoring after Shankle Bloxom re-
covered Rote's fumble on the TCU
49. Ludiker again converted.
Southern Methodist roared back
for 75 yards and a touchdown,
but the Frogs added their winning
touchdown late in the final per-
iod on an 80-yard march.
