Quakers Outfight Irish'
To Gain 7-7 Deadlock


* *

* *



bruising Quakers roundly out-
played a below-par Notre Dame
team for the final three periods
at Franklin Field yesterday but
were forced to settle for a 7-7 tie
when the Irish defense refused tos
fold under heavy pressure.
The green clads from South
Bend set off the scoring early in
the contest and for a few mo-
ments threatened to make a run-
away. But they subsided as quickly
and for the remainder of the rug-
ged duel a capacity crowd of near-
ly 75,000 was treated to the rare
spectacle of a Notre Dame eleven
fighting desperately to fend off
defeat at the hands of an Ivy1
League team.
NOT UNTIL the very closing
minutes did the Irish recover the
x fire and poise which enabled them
to orll 89 yards down the field
for their touchdown in the open-
ng quarter. Then, with the minute
had running out on the big clock,
they put on last-gasp passing at-
tack which carried well into
Quaker ground. But the brave ef-
fort came to naught when their
fine halfback, Johnny Lattner,
fumbled after snagging a pass on
the Penn 25.
In between the big Penn
team held almost complete
sway. Not only did the Quakers
swoop to the tying touchdown
on the wings of a 65-yard pass
play early in the second half,
but they kept the ball inNotre
* Dame territory almost contin-
uously and threatened to score
time and again.
Once, in the second quarter, they
.were thrown back after reaching
the Irish two-yard line on a bril-
liant passing offense sparked by
Glenn Adams who hit his receiver
like a man knocking off ducks in
a shooting gallery.
AGAIN in the same period, Ad-
ams just failed to hit his man
with a fourth-down throw from
the seven.
In the third period, after Ad
ams had passed to end Ed Bell
for the tying counter, the Quak.
ers were held for downs 20 yards
from the goal line. Early in the
fourth, they charged down to
* the Irish 15 and appeared to be
ripping to the winning score be
fore their fullback, Don Zim.
mer, fumbled. In other words,
the Red and Blue did most of
the playing but couldn't pick up
the marbles.
The Irish, off yesterday's per-
formance, are no threat to the
mythical national championship
this year.
THE MAN WHO kept Coach
Frank Leahy's boys from taking
a licking was Lattner, the same
who made the unfortunate fuble
toward the end. It was his ability
to skip through the Penn defense
which provided the Irish with
their touchdown. Twice while his
team was pounding a total of 89
yards in 14 plays, Lattner got
away and almost went to the goal.
The first time it was for 21 yards,
the next for 23. Fittingly, he was
permitted to smash across from
one yard out for the score. That
was at 11:14 of the first period.
Immediately after that was
when the Irish threatened to go
away and hide. Only moments
later, Dave Flood, a Notre Dame
halfback, recovered a fumble on
the Penn 49. Ralph Guglielmi
faded back and fired a beautiful
pass down the middle to Joe
Heap, who romped across the
Hajor League

line for what appeared to be a
touchdown that might open the
flood gates.
But some Notre Dame man had
used his hands improperly and
from that instant the game took
a radically different turn.
* * *
BEFORE HE knew it, Penn had
come back and was taking charge.
With Adams throwing his
bullseye pitches to Beuber and
other receivers, and the Notre
Dame offense stalled deep in its
own end of the field, the going
became completely one-sided.
This was the closest Penn ever
came to beating a Notre Dame
team. Back in 1930-31 the Irish
won by scores which were fright-
ful. There was one game which be-
came famed in song and story
when an Irish halfback. named
Marty Brill earned a handful of
bonds from his father by scoring
touchdowns in clusters against the
Harty, now a sedate -salesman
in California, was on hand as a
spectator yesterday. He must have
felt pretty let down.

PULLMAN, Wash.-W)-Stan-
ford's Dick Monteith broke through
to block a third quarter conversion
attempt yesterday and saved the
Indians a 14-13 upset victory over
crumbling Washington State.
Monteith, a 20-year-old junior
halfback, smothered Ed Barker's
kick after the Cougars had fought
back from a 14-0 halftime deficit
to within range of at least a tie.

HIS RUSH through the WSC
line not only protected the slim
Stanford margin, but saved Bob
Mathias, the Olymoic hero, from
being a football goat before 25 -
000 Pacific Coast Conference fans.
Mathias, instrumental in the
two long drives that provided
the Stanford touchdowns, fumb-
led twice in the third quarter
deep in his own territory. The
Cougars recovered both times
and turned the miscues into
WSC, once favored as a"Pacific
Coast Conference title contender,
looked listless in the first half
but played Stanford off its feet in
the third period and almost pulled
the game out in the fourth.

THE INDIANS struck for their
first score after 8 minutes of the
opening period with a sustained
drive that carried 52 yards in nine
plays. They went 78 yards in 15
playshin the second quarter for
another score.
Quarterback Bob Garrett con-
verted both times.
Garrett's passing and the run-
ning of Mathias, Ron Cook and
Frank Crist accounted for the
yardage rolled up by Stanford in
the two scoring drives.
GARRETT passed for both
scores, 15 yards to Cook for one,
nine yards on fourth down to Sam
Morley for the second.
Halfback Al Charlton, who re-
covered Mathias' first fumble on
the Stanford 31, and Dwight Pool
did all the running in WSC's first

Tigers Shut Out Lions,
14-0 for 23rd Straight

NEW YORK M)-Princeton ran
its football victory string to 23
straight games, yesterday by de-
feating Columbia, 14 to 0, on two
short touchdown passes by Rob-
ert Unger and William Tryon.
Frank McPhee, the big Prince-
ton end playing both offense and
defense, led his team in a smooth
exhibition, nationally televised as
the game of the week.
** *
PRINCETON'S last defeat was
Oct. 22, 1949 when Cornell won,
14-12. The Tigers now have the
longest winning streak among ma-
jor teams.
Columbia, with quarterback
Mitchell Price doing all of the
passing and most of the running,
thrice threatened but each time
Princeton held inside its own
5-yard line.
Princeton scored at the very
start on a 73-yard march with
Unger passing seven yards to Rich-
ard Yaffa in the end zone. In the
fourth period when Columbia's
under-manned team tired badly,
the Tigers scored again, this time
going 46 yards with Ralph Willis
counting on Tryon's pass from
five yards out.
* * *
PRINCETON, Eastern Champi-
ons two years running, lacked the
sparkle it had when All-America
Dick Kazmaier was in the back-
field, but it appeared to be a team

of considerable promise. Kazniaier
graduated last June.
In the second period Columbia
punched to Princeton's two and
at the start of the second half
went just inside the five. At the
very end of the game Columbia
reached the Princeton five again
but Princeton's big line was too
much for the smaller Columbia
MC PHEE WAS outstanding in
victory. The towering end rushed
Price mercilessily and on offense
caught several passes at critical
moments. The longest run of the
day was made by Mercier, who
went 49 yards in Columbia's fourth
quarter drive, to put the ball on
Princeton's 31. A moment later he
took a 16 yard pass from Curtis.
Princeton's remarkable victo-
ry string is unmarred even by a
tie. After that 1949 defeat by
Cornell, Princeton won four
games. In both 1950 and 1951
the Tigers won nine and this
was the first game of 1952.
In Princeton's first period scor-
ing drive, the Unger-Yaffa passing
combination worked effectively,
once for 19 yards. The second-
touchdown march found Tryon do-
ing the passing, both for the
touchdown and for key gains on
the march.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill.-(,P)-A 72-
yard touchdown run by a defen-
sive end and spectacular passing
by quarterback Tommy O'Connell
powered Illinois to a 33-7 victory
over out-manned Iowa State yes-
Illinois, undefeated in a football
season opener since 1943, delighted
a crowd of 47,338 yelling fans with
a triumph so simple that it didc
most of its work under wraps.
O'Connell was superb, connect-
ing on 11 out of 16 tosses for 191
yards in less than three quarters
of action. He hit John Ryan, a six
foot, one inch junior end from To-
lone, Ill., for a 49-yard scoring
play and set up two other touch-
downs with his aerial work.

passed for three touchdowns and
scored another as he led Wiscon-
sin's football team to a brutal
42-19 victory over Marquette yes-
It was the season's opener for
both teams, traditional rivals siuce
Haluska, who connected on 14 of
21 aerial tries for 237 yards, passed
53 yards to Harland Carl, 13 yards
to Kenton Peters and 44 yards to
Roger Dornburg for touchdowns.

COLUMBUS, O.- (AP) -A red-
haired freshman fireball flashed
across the gridiron firmament yes-
terday and the kid's three-touch-
down splurge was the margin by
which Ohio State defeated In-
diana's Hoosiers 33-13 in the sea-j
son's opening Western Conference'
Howard (Hopalong) Cassady,
168-pound frosh from Columbus
Central High School, was the df-

ference in the bitterly contested1
fray which Ohio broke wide open
in the final quarter with a three-]
touchdown barrage, two by Cas-1
der-manned Hoosiers gave the fav-1
ored Buckeyes a tussle through the
first three periods and were on
even terms at 13-13 well into the
fourth session. The Buckeyes turn-
ed two intercepted passes and a
recovered fumble into three quick
touchdowns to avenge last year's
32-10 loss to Indiana when the
Hoosiers almost duplicated yes-
terday's Ohio effort by cashing
in on two Ohio fumbles and an
intercepted pass.
Cassady's three - touchdown
performance was one of the
most outstanding feats ever of-
fered by a first-year man on the
Buckeye field. Last fall he was
a member of the Ohio high
school All-State first team, and
became eligible for varsity play
with the University by entering
college last January.
He is 18 years old and stands
five feet ten and his hair is as
red as a firebrick.
Ohio State, operating from its
newly-adopted Split-T formation,
drove to a touchdown in the first
three minutes when Fred Bruney
intercepted one of Lou D'Achllle's
passes on Indiana's 38 and carried
it back to the 17. Two plays later
quarterback John Borton, Ohio's
sophomore signal caller, hit Bru-
ney in the end zone with a 15-yard
touchdown pass.

PITTSBURGH- () -Fullback
Bobby Epps and halfback Bill Rey-
nolds punched the Iowa Hawkeye's
line full of holes yesterday in a

brilliant display of open field run-
ning to launch the University of
Pittsburgh to a 26-14 victory in
the seasonal opener for both teams
and their new coaches.
There was just no stopping Rey-
nolds and Epps. Between them and
the smart engineering of quarter-
back Rudy Mattioli who stepped
into the vacated shoes of Bobby
Bestwick, the ground-hungry Pan-
thers moved 75 and 72 yards for
two scores in the second quarter.
