37-=7 Victory




Iowa, Illinois, Northwestern Pro Golfers

.Topple Intersectional Foes
Lattiier, Worden Irish Offensive Standouts;
Iowa's .54 Points Highest Total Since 19471

'M' Takes Advantage of Tulane Errors

LAFAYETTE, Ind. - (P) -- No;.
tre Dame's neat and nifty football
team scored a 37-7 victory over big
but befuddled Purdue yesterday.
The Irish scored as they pleased
-with fullback Neil Worden's
power; halfback Johny Lattner's
speed and quarterback Ralph Gug-
lielmi's lateral passes overwhelm-
ing Purdue.
NOTRE DAME started its point
production with a 23-yard field
goal by guard Menil Mavraides less
than seven minutes into the first
quarter and Purdue never caught
Latner showed the sell-out
crowd of 49,135 sweltering fans
his All America caliber in an 86-
yard kickoff return in the sec-
ond quarter. He simply exploded
down the sideline and outran
everybody in the Purdue back-
field for Noire Dame's second
Worden, however, was the main
payoff weapon for the Irish, scor-
ing two of Notre Daine's five
touchdowns. They were on 11-yard
runs in which he smashed through
the Purdue line like a ram.

IOWA CITY, 'Iowa - Iowa
splurged to one of its wildest scor-
ing binges yesterday in running up
6 54-12 victory over Washington
State in an intersectional football
The Hawks turned it into a rout
with a 35-0 first half lead.
COACH FOREST Evashevski,
who came to Iowa only a year ago
from Washington State, started
six sophomores against the over-
matched Pacific Coast conference
team but everyone was in on the
act before the finish.
The 54 points were the highest
Iowa total since North Dakota
State was crushed, 59-0, in the
opening 1947 game.
Not only dic an assortment gf
Iowa backs scoot around in talent-
ed ground-gaining consumption,
but a rugged Iowa line restricted
the Cougars to a net rushing gain
of 13 yards. In the first half when
Iowa was in supreme command,
Washington State had a net loss
of 21 yards by. rushing.
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Elry Fal-

kenstein, a second-string quarter-I
back, and comet-like J. C. Caro-
line, sophomore halfback, geared
Illinois to an uphill 33-21 victory
over Stanford yesterday.
A burst of 19 points in the last
quarter, two touchdowns stem-
ming from intercepted passes, gave
the Illini their first triumph of
the season after a 21-21 opening
tie with Nebraska. .
The game was played in 86-
degree heat before 32,737 fans
who watched the weary Illini
collapse in the first period to
trail 14-0 then strike back in
sudden bursts eventually to tie
the score 21-21 at the outset of
the final period.
EVANSTON, Ill. - Northwest-
ern's wildcats, a fast and vicious
pack, whipped by the arm of quar-
terback Dick Thomas, sped past
Army 33-20 yesterday in an in-
tersection football battle.
A crowd estimated at less than
30,000 witnessed the game.
L With fast and rugged Wildcat
backs like Bob Lauter, Gerry
Weber and Dick Ranicke forc-
ing the Cadets to play a ground-
wary defensive game, Thomas
found more than adequate op-
portunity to crack open the
on-target heaves.
The Northwestern quarterback
completed 14 of 19 passes, two of
them good for touchdowns and
two others setting up a third score
in accounting for 209 yards of
the Wildcat total.

Top Britain
In Rider Tilt
By The Associated Press
By the narrowest possible margin,
America's overconfident golf pro-
fessionals barely retained the Ry-
der Cup yesterday with a 6-512
victory over a determined British
team trying to bring the famed
international trophy back to Eng-
land in Queen Elizabeth's corona-
tion year.
A pair of flubbed three-foot
putts cost England the cup.
A THREE-FOOTER missed by
Bernard Hunt of England on the
36th hole of the last eight singles
matches enabled Dave Douglas of
Newark, Del., to draw even with
Hunt. Under the scoring system
used in cup play, each country got
one-half point. By coincidence,
the score was the same as when
England last won the cup in 1933.
Peter Alliss also blew a three-
foot putt on the 18th and was a
1 up loser to Jim Turnesa of
Briarcliff, N.Y.
* The United States had gone into
the second and final day's play
with a 3-1 lead gained in the first
day's Scotch foursomes. But the
British golfers drew even at 5-5
with only the Hunt-Douglas and
Turnesa-Peter Allies matches still
to be completed.
Scotsman Eric Brown surprised
Lloyd Mangrum, 2 up, and a few
minutes later long-ball hitter Har-
ry Weetman of Britain came in
with a 1 up victory over Sam

Ted Kress' 62-yard gallop, which
produced the final score of the
And it was the recovery of key
Tulane fumbles which enabled the
varsity to stall the Green Wave
on several important occasions.
*; * *
ALTHOUGH it takes an alert
team to recover fumbles and in-
tercept passes, these abilities must
be combined with a productive
offense if victories are to be gain-
ed. Michigan had the offensive
guns yesterday and when the situ-
ation demanded it, the varsity
turned on the power to defeat the
Southern team.
Tulane's coach, Raymond
(Bear) Wolf, was high in his
praise of Michigan. As did
Washington's John Cherberg,
Wolf had great respect for the
Wolverine offense. It was the
varied attacking formations
which caused confusion among
the Tulane players. This was
their first look at a deceptive
single wing and "T" offense, and
they are not likely to forget it
f or a long time.
Coach Wolf's team did not crack
under the pressure of a two touch-
down deficit as did the Washing-
ton squad last week. This was
mainly due to the fact that the
Green Wave has an all-senior
backfield, whereas Washington
was playingwithout both first
string halfbacks when it took a
50-0 beating from Michigan.
BEFORE THE game, Tulane's
engaging sports publicity director
Eddie Allen commented after
watching the show by the Michi-
gan band that if the football team
was as good, then the Tulane boys
should leave before things got
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan was
pleased with his team's second

victory of the season, but was
none too happy about the punt-
ing. He also indicated that some
of next week's practice time
would be devoted to sharpening
the varsity's blocking. The coach
thought that the Tulane tepjin
showed greater poise than Mich-
igan's first opponent, and ad-
mitted that the 14-7 score in
the last period gave him a few
anxious moments.
There seemed to be unanimous
agreement among the writers and
both coaching staffs that the
blocked Tulane punt in the fourth
quarter (Bob Topp blocked it and
Gene Knutson recovered in the
Tulane end zone) was the key
play of the game.
About the only disheartening
note yesterday was the report
from the Big Ten office that full-
back Dave Hill is ineligible to com-
pete this season. Hill did not com-
plete his semester's work when he
withdrew from school in the spring
of 1951 to join the armed forces.

ines scheme of things darkened
considerably. Michigan couldn't
generate any kind of offense, and
before long the rain came and the
52,914 fans scrambled to get under
Then, with Michigan stymied,
on its own 30 yard line, Branoff
punted out to the Tulane 25 and
Greenie end Chuck Coates was
caught clipping which*pushed the
pigskin back to the Tulane seven.
With this, "Old Sol" reappeared
and things were looking up for
Bobby Saia got nothing on a'
plunge and Kennedy went back to
kick-whereupon Messrs. Topp and
Knutson converged and converted
the attempted boot to a Wolverine
touchdown. .
The game's first score came
when Kress . snatched McGee's
punt halfway through the open-
ing period, dropped it, picked it
up and brought it to the Michi-
gan 32 befor, being downed. Then
with Lou Baldacci in the driver's
seat mixing up his plays with the
mastery.of a proven veteran, Mich-
igan moved the ball on the ground
to the Tulane 31.
KRESS, BRANOFF and fullback
Dick Balzhiser ate up the yardage
and then Kress lofted a pass to
right end Knutson on the Green
Wave five yard line to set up the
score. On the next play, Branoff
slipped around left end and into
paydirt as Balzhiser leveled two
Greenies with a key block.
Branoff converted and the first
quarter ended with Michigan
ahead, 7-0. At the mid-point of
the second quarter, Michigan
pulled one out of the football
graveyard as Baldacci and Bran-

off collaborated on a touchdown
scoring Statue of Liberty play,
and the Flint youngster made
his kick true.
Ed Hickey, scatback from Ana-
conda. Montana-andBob Hurley,
fullback from Alamosa, Colorado
had set the score up after Kress
had taken Ray Weidenbacher 52-
yard punt on his own 27 yard line
and had lost four yards tryir, to
elude Tulane tacklers. The Wol-
verines then marched the length'
of the field,. Hurley leading the
way with runs of 26 and 12 yards.
