LOCAL, NEIGHBQRTOWN, STATE, NATIONAL "Spoils ^Aggies Capture Siigar Bowl Tilt St. Mary's Gaels Win the Crowd fBut Lose the Game -New Orleans, Jan. 2 (¿p) _ The Cowboys of. Oklahoma A. and M won the Sugar bowl game Tuesday but the gallane galloping Gaels of .,|St. Mary's won the hearts of the biggest football crowd ever assembled m Dixie. +v 1 « t Was 33 to - ost of the officially estimated 75,000 spectators will forget that before long, but they will never forget the Gaels' * courage and. fancy football. The Aggies obviously had the better ball club. Their straping linemen ripped holes for gains of 217 yards rushing, holding St. Mary's to 61. All-America halfback Bob Feni* .¿, more accounted for 130 Aggie yards - -^and plunges by Indian Jim Reynolds made moat of the others. Tricks by Tricksiers The Gaels, however, put on the show and drew the shouts from the crowd. They used flat parses from their 13-yard line; odd plays from fantastic spread formations; triple laterals, downfield laterals, laterals ending up with guards carrying the- ball. . ' ' • In fact, the second St. Mary's ^ touchdown was scored by a guard, ~ Carl De SAÍVO, who scampered 20 yards with * . lateral from All- America Herman Wedemeyer who had circled right end for 24. Wedemeyer couldn't match Peru- more on ' the ground in the All- America conttest, but he completed nine of 18 passes for 155 yords to Fenimore's four out of 11 for 76 yards. Gael quarterback Dennis O'Connor intercepted three Fenimore passes and Wedemeyer caught one. Fenimore intercepted two of .^) Wedemeyer's. Gaels Stored First St. Mary's scored first, on a 47- 3¿ard pass play from Wedermeyer to o Connor. Two minutes later Fenimore looked a 29-yard touchdown heave to Cevil Hankins, climaxing a 64-yard advance made entirely on Fenimore runs and passes. Fenimore's short plunge to a second-period touchdown after a 31- yard - drive : put -the Aggies . permanently, ahead. Ds Salvo's came soon k afterward. * As the Gaels wilted in the second half, Fenimore and Reynolds each plunged to another score and on the game;s;last. play Reynolds shot a pass which a Gael batted into substitute Bob Thomas' hands for an A. and M-« touchdown.

KINDRED ICE PLANT COAL Bowl Campaigners Perform Before Delight Spectators With a Rash of 69 Touchdowns Scored In 13 Holiday Tilts By Ted Meier New York, Jan. 2—<#•)—A rash of 69 touchdowns delighted the 397,000 spectators who turned out for Tuesday's 13 bowl football games from coast to coast and who saw most of the favorites win. The victorious Alabama, Oklahoma A and M 1 , Texas, Miami, Georgia, New Mexico and Wake Forest teams all contributed to this New Year's display of gridiron fireworks, but perhaps the most thrilling "TD" of the lot came in the last second of the Orange bowl at Miami. A capacity crowd of 36,000 was startled as substitute AÍ Hudson intercepted a Holy Cross aerial and sprinted 88 yards for a touchdown to give Coach Spike Harding's Miami Hurricanes a 13 to 6 triumph.' The final whistle blew as Hudson crossed'the goal line in a storybook finish. Alabama's Crimson Tide and the Oklahoma Aggies, both unbeaten and untied during the regular season, lived up to their press notices St. Mary's, respectively, in the Rose by routing Southern California and and Sugar bowls. Rose Bowl Lo-Sided Affair Alabama, sparked by Harry Gilmer, ended. DSC's unbeaten streak in the famed Pasadena game, by smearing the Trojans, 34 to 14, before 93,000, the largest crowd of the day. The Southeastern champions turned the game into a one-sided affair by Tunning up a 34-0 score before USC counted twice in the last period. A crowd of 75,000 at New Orleans, the largest ever to see * a football game in the south, saw the Aggies spot St. Mary's a touchdown in the first six minutes, then come from behind to take a 14-13 lead at the half and pull away to a 33-13 triumph in the second half. The duel between the two All- America halfbacks. Bob Fenimore, of. the Cowboys, and Herman Wedemeyer, of St. Mary's, came out pretty much, even-stephen. Peru- more gained 130 yards in 25 tries by rushing to Wedemeyer's 29 yards on seven attempts. In the air, Herman completed nine of 18 passes for 155 yards while Fenimore completed 4 of 11 for 76 yards. All-Stars in Tie A 42-yard touchdown run by Alan Dekdebrun, Cornell's star quarterback, and a placeSick by Purdue's Torn Hughes gave the East All-iStars & 7-7 tie with the West All-Stars in the Shrine bowl at San Francisco before 60,000. , Later in the game the East reached the West three-yard stripe, but three plays failed and on fourth down Hughes missed a fielci goal try from the 18. Texaj and Missouri reached the heights of the day's touchdown orgy in the Cotton bowl at Dallas. Bobby Layne sparked the Longhoms to six scores and a. 40-27 victory. Touchdowns came so fast that the 46,000 on hand were hard put to keep up with developments. " Charley Trippi led Georgia to a 20-6 victory over Tulsa in the Oil bowl at Houston. A crowd of 27,000 saw Tulsa trail by 7-6 for three quarters, then watched Trippi throw a 54-yard touchdown pass and sew up victory a few- minutes later by running back a Tulsa punt 69 yards for a score. Trailing by 17-13 starting the last quarter New Mexico came up with three touchdowns In the final 15 minutes to beat Denver, 34-24, in the Sun bowl at El Paso. Don Rumley of the winners passed for three touchdowns and scored a fourth himself. Win on Intercepted Pass . An intercepted pass in the closing minutes led to Drake's 13-12 triumph over Fresno State in the Raisin bowl fray at Fresno, Calif. Ralph Gruben returned the intercepted aerial to the Fresno 24, then Jack Coupe passed to Charles McDowell for the tying touchdown. Substitute Jim Baer booted the winning point from placement. Wake Forest, behind at the half by 7-6, pounded out three second half scores to whip South Carolina, 26 to 14, in the first 'Gator bowl at Jacksonville, Fla. The team had played a 12-13 tie during the regular season. Tennessee State beat Texas college 33-6 in the Vulcan bowl at BLrmngham; Beth une - Cookman whipped Albany (Ga) Teachers 32-0 in the Coconut bowl at Miami; Knosville licked Honda N-l, 18-0 In the Azalea bowl at Orlando; Louisiana Normal trimmed Lane college 19-6 in the Flower bowl at Jacksonville; the Galveston All- Stars won in the Oleander bowl at Galveston by defeating Philadelphia's sandlot champs, the Tasker Bears, 27-0; and St. Paul's Snow bowl—a "gag" game between two teams made up of high school players—ended in a scoreless tie. tyon County Hunters, Fishermen Found 1945 a Disappointing Year With the end of the duck season Monday evening, Lyon county hunters closed a year which has been far below the average for rod and gun sports. Hunting and fishing was good only in spots during 1945. High water was a handicap to the fisherman last year, but even at Lake Kahola and Lake Wilhite the fishing was below par. Fewer large channel catfish were caught in the lakes and rivers, and the bass take probably was less than half of normal. The only encouraging sign was the appearance of more giant crappie at Lake Kahola. The duck season In 1945 was a complete flop. Except for a few days of excellent mallard shooting at Kahola, the duck hunters saw more decoys than ducks.

Hunters in the blinds had only a few shots and seldom saw more than a single or double at one time. Quail were plentiful this fall, but hunting conditions were adverse. The long dry fall made work difficult for dogs. Grass remained high because of the late freeze. Many birds hid in the grass after being flushed. However, the staggered season for shooting days found favor -with the quail hunters, and the more rugged nimrods, who hunted most of the open days, have plenty of quail In their lockers. The fishermen and hunters look forward to better sport this year, provided weather conditions are normal and the ducks do not boycott this region.

Now from Charley Trippi Leads Georgia to 20-6 Win over Tulsa Houston, Texas, Jan. 2 (/P)—Charley Trippi was the ball game Tuesday as a sharp band of Georgia Bulldogs whipped Tulsa's Golden Hurricanes, 20-G, In the second annual oil bowl classic. Some 27,000 fans saw the 180- pound ex-soldier sandwich a great fourth quarter show into a magnificently played game. Henry Frnka's Hurricanes, making their fifth successive bowl stand, matched Georgia's first period touchdown in the second quarter but their try for point failed and Tulsa trained, 7-6, at the three- fourth mark. Soon after the last quarter opened, Trippi passed from his.46-yard Uñé to John Donaldson, wingback, who scored from Tulsa's eight.' That was more than enough to win. but Hrippi was not through. He took a Tulsa punt on Georgia's 31 reversed his field and raced down the sideline for another touchdown. Hernigan converted. Soon after the opening kickoff, Georgia's 155 - pound wingback Charles "Rabbit" •Smith,- scooted across from the^. three yard Une. George Jemigan converted to give the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead. Tulsa turned a Georgia fumble Inte a touchdown In the second period. Quarterback John Bauch attempted to pass from deep in his own territory and dropped the ball, 290 pound Forrest Grigg recovering for Tulsa 13 yards frorfi a touchdown. Fullback Camp Wilson hammered the Georgia line for short gains and finaUy sliced through from the three yard line. Trojans Completely Outclassed by 'Bama USC Given 34-14 Sh«llackiny by Al*rt Crimson Tide Ei*v»n "": Pasadena, Calif., Jan. 2 (#)— Southern California's Tropans went o the well nine times before they ell in, but that ninth time—. Never, say the oldest historians, has the Rose bowl witnessed a more convincing shellacking than Ala- jama's alert, hard-hitting Crimson Tide gave the Trojans Tuesday in exploding 'the myth oí Southern California bowl invincibility. The final tally. 34-H, approximated 47-14 and 35-0 routs of Pitt n the '30's, but didn't come close to Michigan's 49-0 smashing of Stan- 'ord in the first Rose game in 1902. . Yet in many respects, the Tide's 'ictory was the most lopsided ever ;een in the Arroyo Seco saucer. 93,000 on Hand A crowd of 93.000 ho-hummed as Alabama rolled up 18 first downs to •hree for the Tropans. The tide amassed 351 yards from scrimmage—292 running. 59 passing —to USC's 41—only six net running and "35 passing. The Tide's running record was second best, total yard- ige, fourth In bowl history. But the defensive showing is the absolute tops, eclipsing the 49 yards (all running) to which California was held n 1922 by Washington and Jefferson. Whñe the Trojans held him to 'our completions in 12 passes, the rubber - legged, Deceptive - galted Harry GUmer netted 116 yards in 16 running plays, scored one touchdown and tossed another. 'Barna tallied in every period and. did not allow USC to score until coasting on a 34-0 lead. Three Tide counters :anie on sustained drives of tii. 59 !«d 78 yards. The win was Alabama's fourth against one loss and a tie in Rose >owl competition and confirmed the 'ide's selection as the leading all- nvlllan grid squad of 1945. FIRE DESTROYS OUNTRY CLUB Fort Smith, Ark., Jan. 2 (#)—Fire destroyed one of the southwest's iutstanding country clubs — the Harscrafable club, host each year of Invitation golf tournaments which attracted Unksters from ihroughout the nation.

Roman emperor and king of the west Franks, was known as' Charles the Fat. 'Thrills Galore" Marked Texas Win Over Battling Missouri, 40 to 27 Dallas. Texas, Jan. 2 (¿P)—There have been better ' football games played than Tuesday's Cotton bowl but none ever had more action or more thrills than Bobby Layne's— er. beg pardon—Texas' 40-27 victory over Missouri. The 18-year-old Texas sophomore was the difference as the Longhorns kept their •- bowl slate clean and made it three bowl defeats for Missouri while a crowd of 46,000 had trouble keeping-up with the flow of touchdowns. , Layne's performance was one of the greatest individual ahows-^and the greatest Individual passing show —in 10 years of Cotton bowl history He scored four touchdowns, kicked four extra points and completed 11 of 12 passes for 158 yards In connecting for two touchdowns and setting UD three more. Timers Gain 408 Yards Missouri's Tigers, ired by pré- game talk that Texas could beat them as it wished, gave the Longhorns plenty to worry about as wiry Bob Hopkins and little Leonard Brown led a ground attack that rolled up 408 yards. Twice the Missourians roared back to tie the score and they were threatening the Texas goal line all day. Hopkins made 125 yards and Brown 121 as' Missouri's formation ripped wide the Longhorn Hue. A 48-yard pass from Layne to Bill Baumgardner scored the first Texas touchdown. Layne ended a 60-yard drive by diving over from the Missouri one for the next Longhorn score, bounced over from the one-foot line for the third, passed 15 yards to Baumgardner for the fourth, took a 34-yard pass and ran 15 more for the fifth and took a lateral for three yards and the final Texas counter. Pass Play Works for T T) A pass play engineered by Bill Dellastatlous and Roland Oakes that gained 55 yards got the initial Missouri touchdown. Dellastatlous blasted over from the Texas three for the next score, Howard Bonnett sped 21 yards through the line for the third and Hopkins cracked through from the Texas one-foot stripe for the final. Tackle Jim Ke^-.eris kicked three points after touchdown. It was Texas* third Cotton bowl game in four years. The Longhorns have won two and tied one. Missouri has lost in the Orange bowl, Sugar bowl and now the Cotton Dowl. Tuesday's game produced the largest number of points ever scored in the Cotton bowl. The previous high mark was 50 set in 1942 when Alabama beat Texas A. and M ¿921.
