Wolverines Beat Gophers with Six Intercej






Cal Trounces Oregon State;
USC Edges Stubborn TCU

BERKELEY, Calif.-(P)-Cali-
fornia's Bears thundered down
football's comeback trail yesterday
with a thumping 35-14 victory over
Oregon State's bulky Beavers. A
crowd of 43,000 saw the contest.
Beaten last week by USC, for the
first time in four seasons in con-
ference play, the defending Coast
Conference Champions cracked
the stone wall defense of USC for
four touchdowns in the first half
and another in the third period.
** *
AFTER BUILDING up what ap-
peared to be a game-clinching
score, the Bears yielded two touch-
downs to the Fighting Beavers in
the final quarter.
California combined breaks
and heads-up play to count a
first period score and three more
Sin the second quarter. The Bears
boosted the count to 35-4 in the
third period.
The third period touchdown was
the most sensational run of the
game, a 98-yard gallop b: right
halfback Bill Powell. It was the
longest run from scrimmage in
California football history, better-
ing the record 90-yard dash by W.
S. Heitmuller in the Bears' 1902
game with the Sherman Indians.

Christian University almost knock-
ed Southern California loose from
its new-found national reputation
yesterday, but the Trojans came
from behind with counter brilli-
ance in the last quarter and emerg-
ed on the top end of a 28-26 score.

The game, pitting the top teams
of the Pacific Coast and the South-
West Conferences, and witnessed
by 50,732 fans, was not decided un-
til the final gun.
TWO INVALUABLE points mis-
sed on attempted conversions and
two touchdowns fumbled away in
the end zone, cost the Horned
Frogs from Fort Worth the victory.
The vaunted Trojans, rated
No. 6 this past week in the As-
sociated Press poll, went into the
intersectional battle favored to
whip the Frogs by 13 points, at
Instead, USC was held to a 7-7
tie at halftime, and only the heroic
play of tailback Frank Gifford and
awakened wingback Al Carmichael,
brought USC its fifth collegiate
triumph of the season.
TCU was its 19-year-old sopho-
more, Ray McKown, who led his
team to an upset win over Texas
A&M last week and almost did it
again this bright, warm after-
USC took a 7-0 lead in the
second quarter. Getting across
the 50 yard stripe for the first
time, Gifford led the Trojans
48 yards in six plays and scored
the first of his two touchdowns.
TCU came back with an 82-
yard thrust, as halfback John Me-
danich raced 20 yards from a clos-
ed formation-the first of but a
few all day-for the tally.

Notre dame
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre
Dame touched off a group of teen-
aged thunderbolts, fused by fresh-
man Paul Reynolds, that shot
through Purdue yesterday for aj
30-9 football victory.
The youthful Irish, trailing 9-7
in the third period, opened up with
23 points within the next 20 min-
utes to frisk off with their fourth
win in five starts.
* * *
FOUR different players romped
into touchdown territory and soph-
omore Menil Mavraides booted a
field goal and three conversions.
The rout amply avenged an upset
28-14 victory by Purdue last year
that ended Notre Dame's four-sea-
son undefeated streak.
The triumph, punched out be-
fore 57,890 fans who sat through
a cold drizzle that was finallyI
ended by the sun, was the Irish's
16th in a 23-game series with the
Boilermakers stretching back to
Notre Dame went ahead 7-0 at
the half, watched its lead overcome
9-7 by onrushing Purdue in the
first 3% minutes of the third, then
uncorked a field goal and three
touchdowns, two of the scores
coming in the final period.
Reynolds, a 180-pound ripping
halfback from Springfield, Ill.,
pumped life into Notre Dame af-
ter the veterans sledged through a
scoreless first quarter.

quarter. Perry snared a Ted Topor aerial on the Minnesota 45 and succeeded in eluding the Go-
pher secondary, two of which, Dick Wheaton (45) and Dick Dardis (47) are seen chasing him in
vain. Captain Wayne Robinson (barely visible behind Wheaton) closed in on Perry near the fifteen
yard line, but his desperation tackle netted Robinson a piece of Perry's jersey and the fleet Wolver-
ine end went on to score. The touchdown was number two of the day for Perry who thrilled the
Michigan rooters with a 75 yard punt return in the second quarter. In the fourth period Perry added
another touchdown as he and Ted Topor clicked on a 25 yard pass play. Perry was outstanding both

tackled on the spot but threw a
quick lateral to Don Swanson on
his way down and Swanson went
over with ease.
But Michigan broke the 'game
open in the second half, staying
at least 15 points ahead of the
Gophers after Topor threw to
Perry for a 71-yard s.coring pass
with only two minutes gone.
Perry took the ball at the Go-
pher 45 on a play which originated
at the Michigan 29 and outdis-
tanced four Minnesota pursuers to
make the score read 34-20. One
Minnesota tackler came within a
thread of nailing the Ypsilanti

of Perry's jersey-at the fifteen yard
RESCORLA converted for the
fifth straight time and from then
on it was Michigan's ball game, al-
though the Gophers did manufac-
ture one more touchdown.
Perry came back to score his
Ithird touchdown seven minutes
later, again on a Topor pass.
The burly quarterback, who has
come along like a whirlwind at
the position, flipped a beauty to
lopin' Lowell from the Minnesota
25 yard line. Perry made a nice
catch on the fifteen and swept by
tw en to cross the goal line on
the east side of the field.
Minnesota staged a sustained
drive of 74 yards for its final touch-
down, with sophomore Giel bear-
ing the brunt of the attack. Ron
Engel punched over from the four
on an end sweep. Cappaletti con-
verted and it was, 42-27.

MICHIGAN opened the fourth
quarter with another scoring
threat. After Bill Putich had pick-
ed up three 'on an off-tackle slash,
he called a running pass play on
the same sequence. Stopped mo-
mentarily by a Minnesota lineman,
he got off a throw to Fred Pickard
on the Minnesota 29 which covered
26 yards. Pickard, who had but-
ton-hooked in front of two Gopher
defenders, spun around and steam-
ed the remaining distance for the
That would have been enough
thrills for most games. But the
Maize and Blue reserved another
startler for the waning minutes
of the contest.
Don Oldham, a fine runner who
has been something of a hard-
luck player, intercepted a Minne-

sota pass on his own goal line, cut
in beautifully behind a wave of
Michigan blockers, and went all
the way to the Gopher 18 with the
clock showing a half-minute to
play. Oldham was tripped up by
one cleat and barely failed to go -i
the distance.
AFTER WHICH Don Zanfagna,
third Michigan quarterback to en-
ter the game, pitched a great pass
to Thad Stanford in the coffin
corner for the final Michigan
touchdown. Rescorla's conversion
attempt, made from the seven be-
cause of a penalty, was wide, and
the final score was 54-27.
Michigan had so many heroes
for the day that no man could be,
singled out as the big factor in
the victory.
The Wolverine line, a large
part of the recent resurgence,
was outstanding, particularly
tackle Tom Johnson, who was a .
pillar of power on both offense
and defense. On defense, Merritt
Green and Bob Timm turned off

game. Putich had a short bout of
knee trouble in the fourth period,'-
but returned in the closing minutes
to help out on defense.
