SOUTH BEND, Ind.---P)--Mod-
ern football's greatest reign of in-
vincibility tottered but held firm
yesterday as Notre Dame, weary
and worn, staggered to a 14-7 op-
ening win over a North Carolina
team that nearly played the Irish
off their feet in the second half.
A 26 yard touchdown pass with
only 2:20 minutes left, from heroic
Bob Williams to end Jim Muts-
cheller, a combination that ac-
counted for both Irish scores, pro-
duced Notre Dame's 39th straight
game without defeat.
AN IRISH capacity crowd of
56,430 saw Notre Dame confidently
capitalize on two North Carolina
fumbles for a 7-0 lead in the first
four minutes of the game and then
fight with its back to the wall the
rest of the way.
The Tar Heels, marshaled by
163-pound halfback Dick Bunt-
ing, who almost matched Wil-
liams' as the day's individual
star, slashed 78 yards for a
fourth period touchdown by sop-
homore Bud Wallace that tied
the score at 7-7.
Then came the closing despera-
tion drive by Notre Dame which
ccvered 66 yards and was capped
by Williams' decisive heave down
the middle to Mutscheller.
NORTH CAROLINA,# a 13-7
winner over North Carolina State
last week, played like a high school
team in the opening minutes.

SEATTLE-(P)-The University
of Washington flicked a 200-pound
rapier named Hurrin' Hugh Mc-
Elhenny at the University of Min-
nesota yesterday and punctured
a seven-game jinx with a 28-13
victory they had waited 14 years
to witness. Washington had never
won in the long series starting in
1936.
DODGING LIKE A startled
starling, McElhenny returned
Minnesota's first punt 19 yards
to set his style. In a dozen plays
around, over and through the bur-
ly Gopher line, Washington's Hus-
kies lashed to a touchdown and
the lead they never gave up.
Trailing 0-7, Minnesota came
grinding back from its own 20
to the Washington 17. The
crowd-which beat by 8,000 the
previous record set last year--
figured the vaunted Gophers
were hitting the victory trail.
THE YOUNG Washington de-
fenders sopped up every Minnesota
threat in that first half like a
thirsty blotter.

EVANSTON. Ill. - (R) - North-
western, an unknown quantity in
the Western Conference football
championship race, defeated Iowa
State 23 to 13 yesterday in its
1950 debut before 41,000 fans at
Dyche Stadium.
After being held to a 7-7 dead-
lock through the first two periods,
Northwestern took control in the
second half with superior line
play, a stronger running attack
and some surprisingly accurate
passing by quarterback Dick Flow-
ers .
Northwestern's victory margin
was due in a large measure to the
running of Dick Alban, Gene and
Johnny Miller and Rich Athan.
Northwestern gained 292 yards
on the ground to 120 by Iowa
State. But the visiting Cyclones,
through the brilliant passing of
Billy Weeks, were slightly better
in the air with 151 yards gained to.
142 by Northwestern.

UP THERE-Little Frank Howell leaps high into the air to bat an
Al Darrow pass out of the outstreched arms of lanky end Hank
Minarik. Coming up to the scene of action is State half-back Don
McAuliffe (40). Michigan's shaky pass defense allowed State to
complete eight of 19 tosses.

Badgers Stop
Marquette Bid
MADISON, Mis.-('P) - Sharp-
shooting Bob Petruska, Wisconsin
quarterback, passed for two touch-
downs and set up two others as
the Badgers whipped Marquette
28 to 6 yesterday.
Marquette put up a stubborn
fight before bowing to the bigger
smoother Wisconsin squad. It was
all Wisconsin in the first half,
but in the closing periods the Mil-
waukeeans played the Badgers al-
most on even terms.
* * *
PETRUSKA played almost the
entire game on offense and com-
pleted 11 of 18 passes. Frank
Volm, of Marquette also turned
in creditable passing performance,
completing 13 of 26 tosses.
Passes by Petruska and some
good running by Rollie Strehlow
brought Wisconsin an early lead.
The Big Ten team picked up seven
points in each period.
The crowd was a capacity 45,000.

LINCOLN, Neb. -- (M) - Sopho-
more halfback Bobby Reynolds
made a dazzling debut here yester-
lay as 35,000 deliriously happy
fans watched Nebraska and In-
diana fight a tingling 20-20 tie
with plenty of breaks going each
way.
Reynolds, the kid Nebraska fans
have boasted would lead the school
back to the gridiron heights in the
next three years, scorednall three
Nebraska touchdowns and kicked
the two conversions he attempted.
* '* *
TWICE IN THE first half fum-
bles by Indiana's Jerry Van Ooyen
were followed by Reynolds' touch-
downs, yet each time Indiana came
up with plenty of heart and
punched over a pair of scores
which, with two conversions by
guard Danny Thomas, gave the
visitors a 14-13 halftime lead.
Reynolds went over for his
third touchdown in the third
period and kicked the conversion
point. In the fourth, Indiana
got a break when Ron Clark of
Nebraska had the ball knocked
from his hand while attempting
a punt return and Indiana guard
Joe Balabon recovered on Ne-
braska's 29.
Indiana punched down to the
five and a half yard line and Bob-1
by Robertson smashed over center I
for the touchdown.
The try for point which could
have won the ball game for In-I
diana failed. Thomas' kick was
wide.
