the fourth quarter but Bartiewicz,
the workhorse throughout the
game, scored the deciding marker
for Indiana.
Irish Trounce Purdue
Dame, raging after a defeat by
Michigan State, turned Purdue's
passing attack into a suicide
weapon and avenged its only 1954,
defeat, 22-7.
Out-weighed by 25 pounds per
man in the line, the Fighting
Irish came up with its first unbal-
anced line in modern times and
pushed the hulking Boilermakers
all over the field.
Notre Dame turned a Purdue
fumble and an intercepted pass'
into third quarter touchdowns that
broke a 7-7 tie. Irish quarter-j

tailback, scored three touchdowns,
one on a 67-yard punt return. He
averaged 6.8 yards for each of the
11 times he carried the ball.
Brown's other touchdowns came
on plunges of two and four yards.
He also set up the first Bruin

The Trojan's offense, most
powerful in the Conference, stut-
tered through the first three per-
iods of a dull game, but suddenly
jelled in the closing period to
slam the Bears into the ground.
Pitt Rocks Duke
DURHAM, N.C. - Pittsburgh's
twice-beaten football team rose up
to smash previously unbeaten
Duke, the nation's fifth ranking
team, 26-7.
The Panthers held Duke, the
nation's fifth ranking rushing
team, to 92 yards on the ground
and ran up 249 themselves as they
spoiled Homecoming Day for a
crowd of 31,000.
Duke had a 7-6 halftime lead
but thereafter the Panthers were,
pretty much in control. They
moved ahead in the third quarter
when halfback Lou Cimarolli
plunged over from a yard out and
boosted their lead to two touch-
downs in the fourth when half-
back Corky Cost also plunged over
from the one.
Navy Romps
en Navy, with star Quarterback
George Welsh on the bench, its
bag of tricks in the locker room,
and a junior varsity quarterback
directing the attack, sailed to its
fifth straight victory, smashing
downtrodden Penn, 33-0, before
34,543 fans at Franklin Field.
Coach Eddie Erdelatz, confi-
dent his deep squad could handle
anything the peaceful Quakers
could muster, used second and
third string players most of the
way and apparently ordered his
quarterback to use nothing but
simple run and pass plays.

AL Dominates Rookie Team


By The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS - The American
League, for the first time in four
years, dominated the 1955 Rookie
All-Star Team selected yesterday
by the Sporting News.
Eight of 11
The Junior Circuit placed eight
of the 11 players on the squad in
a poll of sportswriters conducted
by the National Baseball Weekly.
It was the first time since 1951,
when Mickey Mantle, Minnie
Minoso and Gil McDougald broke
in, that the American League won
more berths than the National.
Washington, cellar club in the
American and St. Louis, seventh-
place team in the National, each
placed two players on the team.
The, squad lineup:
Norm Zauchin, Boston Red Sox,
first base; Hector Lopez, Kansas
City Athletics, second base; Jose
Valdivielso, Washington Senators,
shortstop; Ken Boyer, St. Louis
Cardinals, third base; Elston How-
ard, New York Yankees, left field;

Bill Virdon, St. Louis, center field;
Carlos Paula, Washington, right
field; Hal Smith, Baltimore Ori-
oles, catcher, and Herb Score,
Cleveland Indians, Frank Lary,
Detroit Tigers, and Jack Meyer,
Philadelphia Phillies, pitchers.
The team batting average of
.270 was the second lowest in the
six years the Sporting News has
named the rookie team but the
home run total of 99 was seven
more than the previous mark, set
by the 1950 and 1954 squads.
Virdon and Score were named
rookies of the year by the news-
paper recently. The Sporting News
defines a rookie as a player who
had not had more than 45 days of
major league experience in a pre-
vious season.
