Michigan State celebrated a
Spartan victory indeed after yes-
terday's 25-0 conquest of Michi- "
Biggie Munn and his boys were
a joyful but not boisterous crew in
the MSC locker room while hordes'
of well-wishers congratulated the

FOUR plays later, left halfback
Don McAuliffe crashed through
'eft guard and over the double line
to score after only a minute and 40
seconds had elapsed in the period.
Carey converted the extra
point, his only successful place
kick of the day, and the Spartans
were on their way, 13-0.
A few moments later Michigan
received its biggest break when
MUNN, crunching a big red ap-
ple between his teeth, was better-
satisfied with his team's showing
this week than last, when they
squeezed out a 6-0 win over Ore-
"I couldn't be prouder of my
boys," he said.
Munn singled out linebacker
Roger Zatkoff of Michigan for
special praise, and was pleased
with his backs' showing.
"We played conservative ball,
particularly in the first half. After
the balihandling last week, we
couldn't take any chances on the
tricky stuff," Munn said.
OVER IN the Michigan locker
room,ECoach Bennie Oosterbaan
blamed lack of experience and in-
ability to get a running game going
for the Wolverines' four-touch-
"I think we learned a lot from
that game," Oosterbaan said.
"After Johnson (tackle Tom
Johnson,. a three-year veteran)
was hurt, we didn't have a single
experienced man in our defensive
S line. State had a fine bunch of
running backs-the hard-driving
type-and we just didn't have
enough to stop them."
* * *
JOHNSON was all right after
the game and will return to ac-
tion next week.
Oosterbaan was pleased with
the defensive play of Zatkoff
and his running mate, Ted
Topor, at the line-backing spots.
He also praised the play of Dave
Tinkham, defensive halfback.
For State, Vince Pisano and any
one of the myriad runners Munn
sent against the Wolverines looked
good-too good-to the Michigan
* * *
FOR MICHIGAN STATE, the
victory as only a prelude to pro-
jected bigger things. Next week
MSC meets highly-regarded Ohio
State. They were chanting: "Come
on, Spartans, beat Ohio!" while
Munn was doing his apple act.

TEXAS 14, PURDUE 0
LAFAYETTE, Ind. - (P) - The
Texas Longhorns ground out two
first half touchdowns on straight
power plays for a 14-0 victory yes-
terday over a Purdue team that
couldn't get Paul Williams and
Jack Barton out of its way.
Williams, 205 pounds of spring-
legged end, pounced on three Pur-
due fumbles. Center Barton was a

HALFBACK Gib Dawson scored
both Texas touchdowns and con-
verted both extra points.
Three or four yards at a
crack was the Texas piece in its
first half offensive and it was
good enough. Without picking'
up an inch in the air, the Texans'
went 34 yards in eight plays for
the first score.'
Dawson curved five yards around
his own right end for the touch-
down. Texas jabbed 31 yards in
10 plays for the second score.
Dawson crossed the goal line un-
touched, from the Purdue 3.
ILLINOIS 27, UCLA 13
unleashed a whirlwind attack fea-
turing Johnny Karras, Bill Tate
and Don Stevens yesterday that
swept aside UCLA 27 to 13.
The game was viewed by 53,256
cheering fans-the largest crowd
ever to see an Illini home football
THE RUNNING of this tornado-
like trio of backs combined with
passing by sophomore Tom O'Con-
nell and senior Don Engle kept the
Illini ahead from the start and
more than compensated for weak-
ness in the defensive line.
What defense Illinois could
muster came from the bruising
line-backing of Chuck Boerio,
Elie Popa and Herb Neathery, a
Karras, the 170-pound halfback
who is bidding for All-America
honors, scored three times, " twice
on one yard plunges and again on
an 11-yard stampede. Stevens, the
170-pound twin terror at half,
rketed 58 yards for the other
Illini touchdown in the longest

Army football teams ever since
1908, took its revenge yesterday
on the Cadet's shattered forces,

Ben Addiego, a fireplug halfback
from West Mont, N.J., went across
for three touchdowns.
Playing their first game since
the cribbing scandal of early Aug-
ust robbed them of all but two of
last year's letter men, the Cadet
youngsters acquitted themselves
well and lived up to every West
Point tradition for fighting, but
they simply were no match for the
big, rugged Wildcat team which
outweighed them some 30 pounds
The defeat marked Army's first
loss of an opening game since 1893,
when it bowed to the New York

back to the Michigan State 25 for a

On fourth down Oldham

nailed him for a yard loss and
tl'e Spartans took over.
They immediately put on an-
other sustained drive which cov-
ered the distance in a dozen
thrusts at the line, highlighted by'
a 15 yard end run by Dorow, a 19
yard pass play to McAuliffe which
gave State a first down on the
Wolverine 45, and a lateral to full-
back Wayne Benson who crashed
over the middle at the 38, cut to his
