Worden, Lattner Spark Notre
Dame to 40-14 Win over SMU






Houston RipsI
Vols, 33-19,
In BigUpset
Wade Runs Wild
In Losing Effort
HOUSTON - (-) - Houston's
Cougars had a lot of trouble with
Jimmy Wade, a brilliant Tennes-
see tailback, but used ball control
behind a surprisingly powerful
line to upset the favored Volun-
teers, 33 to 19, yesterday.
Wade scored all three touch-
downs, two of them on runs of 60
to 63 yards, but his single-handed
efforts could not prevent Houston
from scoring one of its greatest
victories in eight years of football.
* * *
AFTER WADE broke loose for
a touchdown scamper on the third
play of the game, Houston came
back to take a 13-7 halftime lead
that was increased to 20-7 with a
70-yard third quarter drive.
Wade got his 63 yard run late
in the third period. This per-
mitted Tennessee to close the
gap to 20-19 when they blocked
a Houston punt early in the
final quarter.
But it was Houston's day, with
the Cougars striking back for two
more touchdowns on a fumble re-
covery on the Tennessee five and
a 52 yard drive.

First Undefe
For Irish in
SOUTH BEND, Ind.-(P)-Notre
Dame's Fighting Irish closed out
their first unbeaten season in four
years yesterday by mercilessly bat-
tering Southern Methodist 40-14.
The Irish, with ailing coach
Frank Leahy on the sidelines to
direct his team to a final season
record of nine victories and one
14-14 tie with Iowa, sprung full-
back Neil Worden for three touch-
downs and * All-America Johnny
Lattner for two.
x .
HARMONIZING their attack
with spectacular lateral-passing
plays, the Irish struck with ap-
parent intent to show a national
television audience their disregard
of being rated the No. 2 team in
the country.
Undefeated Maryland edged
out Notre Dame for the mythi-
cal national championship in
the final Associated Press poll
this week.
With Lattner proving his tre-
mendous value that won him the
Heisman and Maxwell awards for
the season, the Irish scored in
every period but the last and turn-
ed the game into a complete rout
with a three-touchdown blast in
the third quarter for a 40-7 lead.

THE IRISH romped 302 yards!
through the SMU defense and
passed for 178 more in one of
their greatest displays of overall

gaining this season. They cor-
raled the Mustangs for 73 rushing
yards, but the Texans, nosing for
the fourth time in the intermit-
tent five-game series, picked up
202 through the air, most of this
in the last quarter.
Worden, by piling up 11 touch-
downs for the season boosted
his three-year total to 29 for a
scoring high in 65 years of Notre
Dame football.
Both he and Lattner, as well as
13 other seniors, ended their col-
legiate careers as Leahy shoved
35 players into the contest.
THE SECOND time the Irish
had the ball at the start of the
first period, Lattner spiralled a
pass to Dan Shannon for 55 yards
to set up Worden's eventual touch-
down smash of one yard. It was
only the second pass Lattner had
tossed this season and it set the
tempo for more surprises that
kept a crowd of 55,522 excitedv
After Notre Dame had churn-
ed 83 yards only to be stopped
on the 2 and pushed back to
the 5 to lose the ball on downs,
the Irish scored their second
touchdown at the outset of the
second quarter on a freak.
Duane Nutt, fading back from
the SMU 5 to the 3 to pass, failed
to get the ball away. Paul Matz
tackled him and the ball squirted
into the end zone where Notre
Dame tackle Frank Varrichione
fell on it for a touchdown.
THREE MINUTES later, the
Irish smashed 68 yards to score
again, Ralph Guglielmi passing
24 yards to Lattner who raced
across without a defender within
15 yards of him.

count and it spelled the end of
the Wolverine comeback. McGill

Captain Jim Haas who played a
steady game in defeat was on the
ice for more than forty-five min-
utes, on iron man stint in this era
of hockey.
A penalty to Philpott for high-
sticking helped McGill break into
the scoring column in the first pe-
riod. With the Michigan right-
winger off for two minutes, the
Redmen scored twice once at 5:59
' on a goal by Pete Jockus and the
power play clicked again}~ at 7:07
when Guy Bourgoin scored out of
a scramble in front of the net.
BALTZAM scored his first goal
of the night at 10:54 on a pass
from Jockus to give the - visitors
a 3-0 lead.
McFarland notched Michi-
gan's first goal at 12:41 drilling
a 25-footer off the goalie's pads
into the lower right hand cor-
ner of the net.
After Pete Johnson had given
McGill a 4-1 lead at the 5:22 mark
of the second stanza, Philpott de-
posited a neat center out by Mul-
