Fiirdue, tote Riveters Hand Illinois' Big Nine Champs First Defeat Of Season, 14-7 By MAX GREENW ALD, Star Sports Writer Lafayette, Ind., Oct. 25 An aggressive, hard-charging Purdue line and alert Boilermaker backs handed the Illinois football teams its first defeat in 11 games at the Ross-Ade Stadium this afternoon. Coach Stu Holcomb's gridmen, ,tabbed in early predictions as doomed for a poor season, continued the play which has made them one of the biggest surprises of the campaign and marked up a 14-to-7 decision to the delight of a home-coming crowd of 42,000. Illinois, defending Big Nine champion and winner at the Rose Bowl last New Year's Day, suffered its first Conference loss in three starts this season. Purdue abo has a two-and-one Big Nine record. The Illinl, ranked fifth in the latest national standing, made 17 first downs to Purdue's six, but their attack bogged down before the relentless Boilermaker defenders.. SPLENDID KICKING by George Papach also was of considerable aid to the Riveters. Illinois' short passing game was effective, but the longer tosses were smothered by the secondary and the Purdue line harried Perry Moss, the visitors' ace. He completed 12 out of 23 aerials while Bob DeMoss was successful " on four out of five. One of DeMoss's passes led to the first Purdue touchdown late in the opening quarter and two completions brought about the deciding marker In the third period. The Illinois touchdown came on a spectacular play 35 seconds be-' fore the first half ended. Halfback Chick Maggioli ran deep into the right corner of the end zone to haul down Moss' 24-yard pass. 4 One Illinl drive was halted by the Boilermaker line at the seven early in the second quarter. In the third session Illinois reached the Purdue 21 before a place-kick attempt failed. ONE OF THE TWO Illinois fumbles stopped another march , early in the fourth period after It had gone to the 19. Harry Szulborski 'was Purdue's chief ground gainer. He netted 46 yards in 12 tries and carried the brunt in the advance for the first touchdown. Both teams were unsuccessful on ground plays before Purdue made the game's initial first down. The Boilermaker forward wall was out-playing the Illini and Szulborski got through for six yards. Then Norb Adams cracked the line for the first down at the Purdue 31. A " backfield-in-motion penalty stopped the Boilermakers and Papach sent a boot into the end zone. Illinois was moved back to the eight for holding and Dwight Columbia Snaps Four-Year Army Victory String, 21-20 By OSCAR FRALEY New York, Oct. 25 (UP) The roaring Columbia Lions turned in one of the most stunning upsets in football history today when sharp shooting Gene Rossides and crashing Lou Kusslrow led them to a 21-to-20 conquest which snapped Army's four-year winning streak after 32 games without defeat. Just as 13 years ago the tattered Lions flashed their famed KF-79 to upset mighty Stanford In the Rose Bowl, it was a Columbia team which wouldn't be stopped today. The Lions spotted the Crashing Cadets a two-touchdown lead and then roared up from behind to hand Army its first defeat since Navy turned the trick on Nov. 27, 1943. THE SHADES OF Cliff Montgomery and Al Barabas, who turned In that 1934 upset, were galloping again today before a startled crowd of 35,000 who came and saw but couldn't believe. Only this time it was the tiny Eossides with the whip-like arm and the plunging Kusserow who sparked a ,feam of battered heroes tho unset of the vear. And as those two sent the Lions storming up from behind with a pair ot last period touchdowns they shared the glory with End Bill Swiackl, a glue-fingered guy who took one. aerial in the end lone, and big Venten Yablonski, whose dramatic xtra point sent the crushed Cadets down to defeat Thfough the last three years and the first four games this season that Cadet powerhouse from . r-urrtue 111.

Szulborski scooted around right end for eight yards, but an offside penalty against Purdue followed. DeMoss passed to Adams for a 21-yard gain and the ball was on the Illini 15. Szulborski charged to the 11 and again to the three for a first down. JACK MILITO plowed through the middle for a touchdown and Art Haverstock, for the 15th time this season, made the placement for extra point. Three minutes and 15 seconds remained in the first quarter. . Eddleman scampered lo the Illinois 44 for his team's only first down of the period. Moss' toss to Eddleman was good for a short gain but two passes failed. Purdue put the ball in at its 15 after Eddleman's kick and received two straight offside penalties. A nice hole was made for Ken Gorgal and he gained to the 17 as the quarter ended. Purdue recovered its own fumble at the 11 and Papach kicked to the Illinois 46. Art Dufelmeier made a first down to the Boilermakers' 42 and two plunges by Murney Lazier, third-siring full bck "ereu ood for another first down at the 30. MOSS PASSED OUT to the side and Eddleman ran to the 25. Joe Busceml grabbed another Moss aerial at the 15 for a first and 10. Lazier plowed to the seven in two tries. Tackle Abe Gibron hit Lazier at the line and the Boilermakers turned back the Illini at the seven. Purdue was penalized back to the two and Papach's 57-yard kick rolled to the Illinois 40.

TODAY IT WAS a 13 4 -point favorite, that Army juggernaut, but it forgot to let Rossides and the Lions in on the secret. You can't praise Columbia too much in this one, because they fought back up heart-break highway after a discouraging first half in which Army grabbed a two-touchdown lead, yielded once and then was saved from a deadlock by a break. After that a Memphis mauler named Rip Rowan went 84 yards for an Army score which apparently put the game on Ice. So it was a .big and bruising Army team, with a 13-point edge, which came confidently out for the second half and fell .Into a buzz saw. ROSSIDES WAS pitching 'em and Swiacki was catching 'em, and Kusserow was barreling up the middle. Yet through a score less third period Army fended off those infuriated Lions who once drove to the Cadet 25. I Still Columbia refused to recognize defeat in one of the wildest final periods a football game ever w ill see.

Star Holds Pass - - - Irish Center Recovers Fumble lane SECTION 3 SPORTS, FINANCIAL AND THE INDIANAPOLIS SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 26, 1917 Butler ! Bulldogs Rally i 1 Iince 1 o 1 rip Broncs, 21-20 By BOB WILLIAMS Coach Tony Hinkle's Butler Bulldogs ' surprised a bigger and supposedly better Western Michigan team yesterday afternoon, 21 to 20. The Butler homecoming undoubtedly turned out to be one of the finest college games ever witnessed by the 10,000 fans who filed through the Butler Bowl gates in perfect football weather. The Bulldogs battled from behind three times to bust the Broncos in the Mid-American Conference tilt, scoring once in each of the last three quarters. RAY MoSEMEK'S unerring right toe, Dick Bennett's good right arm and the fleet-footedness of Orville Williams contributed mightily toward a well-deserved Butler victory. McSemek booted all three ex tra points for the Blue and White, the last of which provided the winning margin; Williams was on the scoring end of 70 and 40-yard pass plays; Bennett's passing set up the last two six-pointers and the Fort Wayne halfback scored the deciding one himself. Both teams were air-minded and the air was packed with dynamite. Western scored first through the air in the opening quarter; broke Gail Kisinger loose through center on a 54-yard scoring jaunt just before the half; and bowed out with en 85-yard kickoff return following Butler's third-period touchdown. A BAD PASS FROM center hurried Jim Marks in his first, try from placement and the ball went to the left of the goal posts, a bad break for the visitors because Marks stuck his next two attempts right through the middle. It was still anybody's ball game on the very last play. A couple of pass plays helped Western Michigan move from its own 10 to the But ler 2.3 and Coach John Gill sent Mai Pearson Into the lineup to try for a field goal. Pearson's kick at a sharp angle from the Butler 33 was short and to the right as the final gun barked. Two passes, Quarterback Nick Milosevich to Left End Carl Schiller, gave the Invaders a 6-0 lead Turn to Page 42, Column 5 .

BOB YOl'NO, substitute Indiana quarterback, set up his own downfall by tossing a pass wide to his right intended for Halfback Dick Deranek. But Deranek was nowhere near the ball and Tom Worthington, Northwestern right half back, came up in a flash to intercept, it on the Indiana ,15 and run practically unmolested into the end zone. Then Quarterback Jim Farrar booted the extra point which spelled defeat, for the Hoosier even though 20 minutes still were left in the game. At the outset, Indiana's always-tricky offense looked as if it would run the Wildcats right out of the stadium. But It never could keep a full head of steam.

The out manned Hawks made only one serious scoring gesture and never nad a chance after Notre Dame tallied the tirst time it got the ball. The result evened the Notre Dame-Iowa series with each school now holding three victories. Head Coach Frank Leahy left his Irish regulars In long enough for them to score two touchdowns In Just 30 seconds more thnn one quarter of action. From there on reserves carried most Of the burden and the first-stringers made only brief appearances. THE GAME was well Into the second period before the Hawk-eyes got Into Notre Dame territory. That time they got as far as the Irish 20, but their best scoring chance came in the third period after Emlen Tunncll, a truly great ball player, reeled off a fifi-yard run that gave the Hawks a first down on the Notre Dame 10-yard stripe. The Irish threw up a stone-wall defense, however, and Iowa had to give up the ball on downs when it was only two yards from touchdown territory. In that series of downs, the Hawks were over the gonl line once on a pass from A Dlmarco to Hal Shocncr, but the play was called hack because of an offside penally. Notre Dame also lost a touchdown because of a penalty. That was on a fourth quarter pass from Frank Trlpucka to Bill Wightkin. NOTRE DAME, with 17 first downs to Iowa's 10, piled up a margin of 22.'1 yards to 120 by rushing. The Irish also picked up 80 yards as they completed seven of'l4 passes. Iowa gained 84 yards by completing nine of 22 aerials. It was a sparkling display of power that produced the first Irish touchdown. Bill Walsh recovered Boh Smith's fumble on the Iowa 30 and It took just six plays for Notre Dame to score. Terry Brcn-nan and Emll Sitko picked up three yards and Johnny Lujack threw to Jim Martin for a first down on the 18. Mike Swlstowicz gained two and Brennan bulled his way to the three and then went over on the next play. A VERSATILE offen.ie carried Notre Dame as far as the Iowa 11 a little later In the period but that touchdown drive stalled. Sitko had a 35-yard run off right tackle during that drive and with a little sharper blocking might have gone all the way. The next touchdown threat was good. Coy McGee ran an Iowa punt from his 41 to the Trojans Topple From Unbeaten By HAL WOOD Berkeley, Cal Oct. 25 (UP) A supercharged University of Southern California Trojan football machine, aiming for its fourth trip to the Rose Bowl in live years, knocked the California Bears out of the ranks of the nation's unbeaten today with a stun ning 39-14 victory. The Trojan powerhouse afi. compfishing with apparent case a victory over a team that, hadn't heen extended in five previous ?tR1't, "tamped itself as one of the nation's outstanding elevens. Only the UCLA Bruins remained a major obstacle in USC's road to the Pacific Coast Conference title.

At naiiume me wears sun fj were ve,y much In the battle. Eut L Don Doll, 185-pound Trojan half-' 3 hack, broke uo the game on the first play of the second half when he took the California kickoff on his own five-yard line and rambled straight down the middle of the field 95 yards for a touchdown.

Brennnn and Sitko took turns at racing through gaping holes In the Hawk line and the drive had carried as far as the 14 when th period ended. The reserves were standing on the sidelines ready to go into th game but Leahy left his first-stringers In for 30 seconds mor to get the touchdown. Corwln Clatt hit left guard for two and Brennan went the last 12 yards to score. IOWA CAME light back with Its first penetration of Irish territory. Tunnell ran the kickoff from his two to the 23 and the Hawks used runs by .the same player and passes from DiMarco to Ilal and Herb Shoener to drive to a first down qn the Notre Dame 20. The scoring chance blew up there, however, as Lancaster Smith Intercepted another of Di-Marco's passes. The Hawks managed to stay on even terms with Notre Dame reserves for the remainder of the half, and then had their big chance as the third period opened. Two plays after the kickoff, they had the ball on their own 24 when Tunnell cut loose with his great run. He slashed through right tackle, wheeled to his left and romped the 66 yards to the Notre Dame 10. . Tl'XNELL was within a whisker of going all the way, but Lujack and Brennan did a masterful Job of keeping away from the last Hawk blocker, and between them managed to force Tunnell out of bounds.

THE NIMBLE leg of Doll and the bull's-eye passing of Jim Powers, the USC quarterback " who sometimes flipped underhand tosses that bewildered the Bears, were the charge that touched off the runaway.
