Duke Squeaks Past Purdue;

Oklahoma's OhlaState Tnet
DURHAM, N. C.-(P-Quar-
terback Jerry Barger, who re-
gained his-starting role two weeks
ago when Worth Lutz was injur-
ed, went on a fourth-period rai-
page yesterday to lead unbeaten
Duke to a 20-14 victory over Pur-
due's battling Boilermakers.
Barger scored the deciding
touchdown with 40 seconds to play,
running wide around end.
EARLIER IN the fourth quar-
ter, Barger and halfback Red
Smith got together on a 49-yard
pass play to break a 7-7 tie that
hfad existed from the opening min-
utes.of the second period.
Purdue, seeking its first vic-
tory in three games this year,
came storming back with a '70-
yard drive that tied the score
with less than sixminutes to
go. Halfback Karl Kerkommer
smashed over from the two for
the score and quarterback Roy
Evans converted to tie it up.
Then Barger rolled into action.
He sparked the 10-play Duke drive
with an amazing 21-yard run to
the Purdue 45 after seemingly be-
ing trapped on his own 30. Eight
running plays after that, Duke had
its winning touchdown.
But Barger wasn't through yet.
With Purdue driving to tie the
score, Evans let fly a long pass
which Barger intercepted on
Duke's 33 as the game ended.

13-13 by Foe
SEATTLE - (A) - Startled and
stunned by the upstart Huskies of
Washington, the outplayed South-
ern California Trojans desperately
needed two long runs by Aramis
Dandoy and Lindon Crow to sal-
vage a 13-13 tie yesterday in their
Pacific Coast Conference football
Mighty Troy, seventh ranked na-
tionally, made only nine yards
from scrimmage and no first
downs in the first half and gained
very little more than that in the
last two quarters.
- * *
BUT THE break the Trojans
needed came on the opening kick-
off of the second half. Dandoy
fumbled the boot on the SC 30,
but scooped it up, skirted a pileup
of players and rambled 70 yards
USC still trailed, 13-6, at the
start of the fourthquarter.
Then Sandy Ledermnan, Wash-
ington's southpaw sophomore
quarterback, was rushed on an
attempted pass. He got the ball
away but Crow hauled it out of
the air on the Trojan 22 and
loafed down the sideline to the
goal unmenaced by Husky tack-
Sam Tsagalakis booted the point
that knotted the score.
Unimpressed by the Trojan rep-
utation, Washington played the
visitors off their feet in the first
half, scoring twice within two min-
utes in the second quarter.
Jack Kyllingstad pounded two
yards for the first one to cap a
65-yard drive, and Lederman
sneaked over with the second,
which was set up by a recovery
of a Trojan fumble.
ball-handling houdinis rolled up

Merrill Green and Tom Carroll
and Texas fumbling then hung on
desperately for a 19-14 victory yes-

For three quarters the Sooners,
with Gene Calame as the master
magician, had the Longhorns al-
most completely baffled with the
way they handled the pigskin.

Sooner score, Green ran 80 yards
with a put for t4p second and Car-
roll skipped 48 yards for the third.
Then, in the final minutes,
the Longhorns, with sophomore
Charley Brewer, a passing, run-
ning wizard, in the driver's seat,
rolled to two touchdowns. The
first was on a 20-yard throw
from Brewer to Delano Womack.
Brewer's passing also set up the
second Texas touchdown.
A crowd of 75,504 roared in the
Cotton Bowl as the gallant Long-
horns put up their roaring finish.
But it wasn't enough.
The first Oklahoma touchdown
was scored by Larry Grigg, who
climb'ed over tackle on the Texas
one-yard mark. A badly thrown
lateral that Carroll intercepted,
fumbled . then recovered on the
Texas 25 set up this score.
The second Texas touchdown
was made by Ed Kelley on a two-
yard sprint around end.

'By Illinois, 41-20
COLUMBUS, Ohio - ('-) - The
Buckeye football bubble burst with
a bang yesterday as Illinois turned
loose its touchdown twins for an
astounding 41-20 upset victory
over Ohio State in a Western
A crowd of 81,745, seventh larg-
est ever to fill Ohio's big horse-
shoe, sat stunned as the Illini ran
up three touchdowns in the first
period, allowed the Bucks three
touchdowns in the second quar-
ter, and then won going away.
TWO SOPHOMORE sensations,
halfbacks Mickey Bates and J. C.
Caroline scored the six Illinois1
touchdowns, Bates getting four
and Caroline two.
The youngsters ran over, un-
der, around and through the
big Ohio line as Bates scored on
runs of 2, 41, 4 and 4 yards.
Caroline picked his up on a 2-
yarder following a 24 yard jaunt
by Bates, and on a 64 yard jaunt
Ray Elliot's alert Illini convert-
ed sthree intercepted passes and
one fumble into four of their six
touchdowns. After Bates had
scored twice and Caroline once in
the startling first period to give
Illinois a 21-0 lead, Ohio turned
loose its expected power in the
second session to come within an
eyelash of tieing the invaders.
JOHN BORTON passed 19 yards
to Howard (Hopalong) Cassady
for the first Buckeye score. Ohio
had another touchdown in less
than a minute as Bobby Watkins
whirled for 12 and a score after
Dave Leggett of Ohio had picked
up a fumble by Bates on the kick-
Late in the quarter Ohio, aid-
ed by a 29-yard pass interfer-
ence penalty and a 20-yard Bor-
ton-to-Cassady aerial, rolled 80
yards in nine plays with Borton
sneaking the finial one foot for

The 41 points piled up by Illi-
nois was the greatest total ever
scored by that club against the
Bucks in the unbroken series
which goes back to 1914.wThe
only comparable score was a
37-0 Illinois victory in 1914, Ohio
State's first conference meeting
with the Illini.
The visitors ran up their huge
score by rinning. They rushed
for 443 yards to Ohio's 138 but'
completed only one pass, a harm-
less 15-yarder in the final two
minutes of the game.;
* * *
CAROLINE and Bates, two ofI
the most scintillating backs ever
to appear on the Ohio field, just
couldn't be stopped. Caroline reel-
ed off 192 yards in 24 jaunts, and
Bates 147 yards in 23 tries.
Bobby Watkins, who scored
four touchdowns for Ohior
against California a week ago,
paced the Buckeye runners with
81 yards in 10 attempts.
Borton completed 10 of 18 Ohiol
passes for 97 yards and one touch-
down but the three interceptions

resulted from an interception by

EVANSTON, Ill.-- (A') - Minne-
sota, with Paul Giel and Bob Mc-
Namara providing a terrific one-
two punch, jarred Northwestern
into a 30-13 ig Ten football de-
It was the Wildcats' first loss in
three contests, and their worst
trouncing by the Gophers sincebe-
ing smashed, 30 to 7, in 1945.
WINNING its first game in three
outings this season, and its first
on Northwestern's home grounds
since 1940, Minnesota scored twice
in the last three minutes of the
opening quarter and was never
seriously threatened thereafter.
All-America Giel and his un-
derrated halfback partner, Me-
Namara, tore off yardage almost
at will in shattering Northwest-
Giel hit on touchdown passes
of 15 yards to McNamara and 6
to Bob Rutford as well as scoring
on a 4-yard run himself.
QUARTERBACK Gene Cappel-
letti pitched another Gopher
touchdown five yards to Phil Mc-
Elroy and also placekicked all four
conversions. The Gophers added a
safety in the fourth.
Northwestern, the nation's
No. 1 total offense leader with
an average gain of 466.5 yards
in victories over Iowa State and
Army, was held to 292 by the
Workhorse Giel slammed 98
yards in 21 carries and added 21
yards on two out of four pass
completions. McNamara gained 69
Iyards in 13 trips.
Late in the first quarter Giel
capped a 35-yard drive, drilling
over from the 4. Minutes later Jim
Soltau recovered Thomas' fumble
on the Northwestern 20, and Min-
nesota scored again, Giel even-
tually spearing McNamara's pass

EAST LANSING, Mich.(R'}-
Evan Slonac, a slight 170 pounder
from St. Michaels, Pa., scored the
tying touchdown and then kicked
a vital extra point yesterday as
Michigan State made a roaring
comeback in the fourth quarter
after trailing by two touchdowns
to beat a surprisingly strong and
stubborn Texas Christian team
Under-rated Texas Christian led
13-7 at the half and was ahead
19-7 going into the final period
on the strength of three touch-

FOR AWHILE it looked as if
mighty Michigan State, the de-
fending national champions and
a three-touchdown pre-game fav-
orite would be ingloriously dump-
ed, its string of straight wins
stopped at 26.

Michigan State's Late Rally
Defeats TCU Eleven, 26-19
Leroy Bolden scored at the
end of a 69-yard drive to put
the Spartans in striking dis-
tance. Slonac took a pass from
quarterback Tommy Yeweic and
sprinted 34 yards to make it
19-19. Slonac then booted the all
important extra point.
All the pre-game thinking had
been that the game would be a
romp for Michigan State, just a
workout for the Spartan substi-
tutes. But Coach Biggie Munin had
to play his first string "pony
backs" in the fourth period to
save his squad from the first de-
feat since 1950.
Slonac intercepted a pass on the
MSC 35-yard line to give Michi-
gan State a chance to make its
insurance touchdown. Yewcic pass-
ed to Jimmy Ellis from the TCU
5-yard line for the final score.
