'M' Soccer
Team Beats
State, 3-1
Michigan's football team was not
the only one- to snap a four year
Michigan State supremacy yester-
day-the Wolverine soccer club
downed the State squad, 3-1, for
the first time in four years.
Mehmet Adanli led the Wolverine
cause with a two-goal effort. His
first tally came in the first half,
breaking a scoreless tie, when he
faked the State fullback and rove
all alone in front of the MSC goal,
passing the goalie easily.
State Bounces Back
State, however, came back later
in the first half to knot the score
at 1-1, before Adanli booted his
second goal of the day with fifteen
minutes gone in the second of the
two 40 minute halves.
John Bilson tallied the third
Michigan goal of the game with
but five minutes remaining.
Tony Wellworth captained and
coached the team as well as play-
ing a standout game on defense at
his right halfback position.
Play Ohio State Next
The game was viewed by as
many as 500 spectators at a time
as fans for the football game began
to file by.
The soccer team travels to Ohio
State next weekend to engage the
Buckeyes in the second game of
that series.

Buckeye Ground Game Nets
Win; Watkins, Cassady Star
Boilermakers Held Scoreless for Three
Quarters ; Ohio State Tallies in All Periods

LAFAYETTE ()- - Ohio State's
Buckeyes nailed down at least a
tie for the Big Ten football cham-
pionship and probably a Rose Bowl
trip yesterday in a triumph of bril-
liant running over Purdue's pass-
ing game, 28-6.
The Bucks cut up Purdue with
long touchdown runs by halfbacks
Bob Watkins and Howard (Hopa-
long) Cassady and a short plunge
by quarterback Dave Leggett be-
fore scoring once through .the air
for variety.
They stopped Purdue three times
inside their 15-yard line before al-
lowing the Boilermakers to show
on the scoreboard.
Watkins scampered 30 yards for
Ohio State's first quarter touch-
down. Cassady sped 68 yards in
the second for another Buckeye
tally. Thurlow Weed kicked four
extra points.
Leggett Goes Over
Leggett, a converted fullback,
plunged inches for the third Buck-
eye touchdown in the third quarter
at the end of a 75-yard drive. He
passed 12 yards to co-capt. Dick
Brubaker in the end zone in the
final period after Purdue made its
only score late in the third. Bill
Murakowski got the Boilermaker
touchdown on a 9-yard run.
Ohio State, which stands second

nationally in the weekly Associated
Press poll, thus remained unde-
It gained 407 yards on the
ground, 41 in the air. Purdue made
only 88 yards on the ground, 217
by passing.
Ohio State used just six plays
to cover 87 yards in the first quar-
ter. Watkins went the last 30 yards.
The Buckeyes started their sec-
ond quarter touchdown drive at
their 28 after a punt exchange and
covered the 72 yards in three'
plays. Hubert Bobo dived for three
and Watkins for four. Then Cas-
sady took a pitchout and seesawed
down the right sideline for 68
Dawson Halted
Purdue covered 64 yards in eight
plays for its third quarter touch-
down by Murakowski. Leonard

down passes to lead the nation,

Navy, Army
Romp Over
Weak Foes
Teams To Meet
In Service Tilt
By The Associated Press
ANNAPOLIS-A fleet of fast
Navy backs and hard charging
linemen shattered Columbia, 51-6,
yesterday in a final tuneup for
their football date with Army two
weeks away,
Coach Eddie Erdelatz used his
first team less than 17 minutes.
It blitzed through the hapless
Lions for two touchdowns in the
first period and a lightning-like
strike in one minute and 56 sec-
onds of the second half. The rest
was done by reserves.
In registering their sixth victory
against two defeats theMiddies
rolled up 512 yards rushing for a
new Navy record. They added 117
on passing. Columbia, losing its
seventh game in eight starts, was
shackled to only 28 yards rushing
and 114 yards in the air.
The Lion's lone touchdown came
late in the final quarter on a 15
yard pass from Charley Nations
to Al Black against Navy's third
erful football team majestically
administered to Pennsylvania its
eighth consecutive defeat of the
1954 season yesterday, 35-0.
Pete Vann, Army's tricky quar-
terback, big Don Holleder, and'
Tom Bell stood out for the Cadets,
with Bell and Holleder each scor-
ing two touchdowns.
Despite perfect weather only
34,477 showed up for the game-
the smallest crowd for a Penn-
Army game in recent years.
Only the superb punting of
Walt Hynoski kept the score as
low as it was. Once the Penn half-
back quick-kicked for 75 yards,
another time he punted 57 yards
out of bounds on the Army 3 and
on another occasion he kicked 54
yards out of bounds on the West
Point 16. Late in the game he
kicked 42 yards out of bounds on
the Army 13.



CHAMPAIGN (;) - Wisconsin
cashing in on a series of recovered
fumbles and crucial penalty yard-
age against Illinois, trip-hammer-
ed three touchdowns in the last
quarter yesterday to chill the Illini
homecoming with a 27-14 triumph.
Wisconsin, handing Illinois its
fifth straight Big Ten defeat, play-
ed all but the first five minutes
of the game without its star, rush-
ing record holder Alan (The
Horse) Ameche
Reserve Scores Three
The Badgers, gaining their
fourth conference triumph in six
starts, sprung a reserve senior
halfback, Bob Gingrass, across the
goal line three times.
The aroused flini scored twice
on long drives in the second per-


iod to grab a 14 to 7 halftime ad-
With five minutes remaining be-
fore the half, the Badgers blasted
62 yards in nine plays to score on
Gingrass' four yard cutback. Jim
Haluska's 31-yard pass to Dave
Howard, who caught the ball only
to fumble it and then regain it
again on the Illinois 19, set up the
Glen Wilson booted the extra
point to tie the score, 7 to 7.
Caroline Goes Across
Illinois came right back with
Lindbeck returning the ensuing
kickoff 24 yards to midfield. From
there Lindbeck passed 11 yards to
Bates and nine to eligible tackle
Percy Oliver. Caroline, whose 16-
yard run kept the drive rolling,
eventually drilled across from the
4 and Wiman again converted.
Wisconsin's first break came late
in the third period. Pat Levenha-
gen's punt was partially blocked
by Illinois' Charles Butler. When
the ball came down, Bates, Illini
fullback, touched it. Clarence
Bratt pounced on it for the Bad-
gers. This touched off a 61-yard
Wisconsin surge capped by Gin-
grass' 2-yard smash.
Glen Wilson converted, tying the
score, 14-14, with less than three
minutes gone in the quarter. Min-
utes later, Wisconsin drove 43
yards to score. Momentum was
maintained on a 15-yard pass in-
terference ruling against Bates af-
ter Lindbeck had stolen Jim Hal-
uska's toss for the Illini.
Wisconsin kept possession of the
ball on the 15 and Gingrass even-
tually barreled across from the six.
He also booted the extra point.
In the final five minutes, Illi-
nois' Harry Jefferson fumbled and
Wells Gray recovered on the Illi-
nois 31. Six plays later Bratt ram-
med over from the 14.

FAYETTEVILLE (A1 -- Southern

turned a goal line Iowa gamble
into a game winning safety yes-
terday in an ironic climax to a
22-20 victory studded with the

bled quarterback Jerry Reichow's
high pitchout in the end zone and
fell on it for a safety with the
score tied 20-20.
Seconds earlier, Iowa had an ap-
parent winning touchdown snatch-
ed away when officials detected
a Hawkeye clipping on Earl
Smith's 81 yard sprint into the
end zone on a punt run back.
It was a game of swiftly shift-
ing foxtune, bannered by McNa-
mara's two long touchdown gal-
lops and the deadly end sweeps of
Vincent and Smith.

Minnesota scored a little more
than two minutes after the open-
ing kickoff, McNamara banging 36
yards for the touchdown against
Iowa's second team. The Hawks

yards to score with a magnificent
breakaway from three Iowa tack-
lers at midfield.

Smith's one yard blast later in the
second quarter before Minnesota's
Don Swanson threw 26 yards to
Dick McNamara for a 20-14 Goph-
er lead. Iowa rolled 68 yards early
in the quarter to restore the tie,
Vincent grinding over from the 1.
The victory was Minnesota's sev-
