Nov. 22 Only Southern Calilornia stands between Frank Leahy and his third Undefeated football team in five seasons at Notre Dame. ' His fighting Irish romped to 32 points in the first quarter against Tulane here this afternoon and then coasted in for their eighth Straight triumph, winning, 59-6. A full house of 57,000 fans braved the cold to see Notre Dame's final home game and surely none of the witnesses could deny the Irish their latest claim to national intercollegiate grid supremacy. NEXT SATURDAY will be an open date, and the Irish close shop at Southern California two weeks from today. Notre Dame's tremendous power is best reflected in the statistics where the Gold and Blue picked up 471 yards on the ground to 142 for Tulane and 106 yards on six out of 16 pass attempts to only 28 for the invaders.

Bill Gompers, John Pa-nelli, Cornie Clatt and Jim Bren-nan also shared in the limelight each with one six-pointer, and Fred Earley kicked the extra points after five of the nine touchdowns. 'Johnny Lujack, All-America signal-caller, and George Connor, All-America tackle and the Notre Dame captain, headed the list of seniors playing for the last time in the stadium. They looked their best and when Notre Dame rang the bell twice in the first three minutes and 45 seconds of action, the big crowd sensed that the Irish were rolling toward their biggest total Jf the season. - The Irish took the opening kickoff and moved to the Tulane 2"8, but there lost the ball on downs. Brennan intercepted Cliff VanMeter's pass on the Tulane 42 and returned it to the five where Sitko bucked over for the T.D. Then Notre Dame recovered the first of two kickoffs and promptly recorded its second marker.

Butler Beaten, 26 To 19, As Bearcats Grab Title By LEE HAXSELL, Star Special Correspondent Cincinnati, O., Nov. 22 The University of Cincinnati's Bearcats clinched the mid-American Conference grid championship here today before 10,000 fans as they scored a versity .on a soggy field. On the second play of the ball game, Right Half Roger Stephens went over left guard and raced 67 yards for a touchdown before Butler's defense was set up. Tackle Tom Jessen's place kick was wide and Cincinnati led 6-0 with less thai) a minute of the first quarter gone. Ken Smock took Jessen's kickoff on the Butler 18 and returned to the 32. An unnecessary roughness penalty moved the ball to the 47. Smock picked up eight, Frances (Moe) Moriarity carried to the Bearcats' 40, and then Smock, Moriarity and Orville Williams moved to the U. C. six where Butler lost the ball on downs. Knute Dobkins and Quarterback Tom O'Malley exchanged punts for the remainder of the time in the initial period.

Smock passed to Williams on the 11. He faded back to attempt a third consecutive pass, couldn't find a receiver and cut through center for Butler's first touchdown. Guard Ray McSemek's attempted place kick was blocked. CAPT.

Hurrle gathered in one of McMillan's toses on the 50 and raced to the Cincinnati six before being tackled, from behind. Williams tossed to End Ralph Chapman on the one and Morarity cracked center for the touchdown. McSemek's second kick was blocked. Butler's hopes for victory were shortlived, however, when in the fourth period two intercepted Butler passes were turned into touchdowns by Bearcats Mac Graham and Jim Dougherty. Jessen made both kicks to give Cincy a 26-to-12 lead. The Bulldogs managed their final score on Smock's 21-yard touchdown pass to Peterson just before the game ended.

OVERMTER, Star Sports Writer Bloomington, Ind., Nov. 22 It's amazing how football players on the bench sometimes can sense victory coming their way. Indiana's certainly did today. When the Hoosiers filed out from their dressing rooms after that scoreless first half, they were a grim lot, and the nct they had to shoo an errant and somewhat tipsy gentleman off the bench didn't help their mood any. But it changed in an Instant. Lou Mihajlovich, the right end from South Bend, who was playing his last collegiate game today, mainly was responsible for it when he blocked George Papach's punt and fell on it on the Purdue nine-yard line. Everyone jelled VThis is it" as they threw rib-crushing bear hugs around one another. Even Coach Bo McMillin did a little jig in anticipation of the coming touchdown. Two plays later, Dick Deranek, another South Bend senior, got through the first score on a reverse off tackle and came off the field screaming "After four years I finally got a touchdown against those Boilermakers". AS PLAYERS came on and off the field they all said the same thing "there's more where that came from and we'll get 'em." So by the time Halfback Mel Groomes made the Indiana touchdowns all-senior affairs by catching that pass from Halfback Del Russell, the Hoosiers were taking it all in stride. They knew it ail the time. ' Then the atmosphere changed. The coaches became tense again and as the Riveters began to INDIANA COLLEGES Indiana 18, Purdue 14. Notre Dame 69, Tulane 6.

Everyone &eemed to have the same idea for the field goal which eventually won the game. When the Hoosiers bogged down on the Purdue 14 after three downs and then changed ends of the field for the fourth quarter, a lot of the boys began yelling for a Held goal to be kicked. McMillin had the same idea, though, and already had a man In to call the play. WITH A HALF minute to go, McMillin sent all seven seniors on the team into the game at one time. On the next play Purdue scored to make It 16 to 14. But not a soul was worried except the timer. He couldn't get players out of his way to see the ball's movement. Purdue's bench was a study in contrast the first half. The. favorites, Coach Stu Hol-comb and, his boys nevertheless had a worried air about them as they took their places to start the game. Holcomb concentrated on talking to Pinky Wilson, his aide in the press box, as to how Indiana was playing. Everything was business-like and efficient around the Purdue benches. When Indiana's defensive formations began to click the players' attention turned to stopping the Hoosier offense. What seemed to worry them most was Indiana's screen passes, for they kept yelling to "watch that screen" on almost every ploy. WHEN GROSSMAN came back to try a fake field goal in the first quarter, Holcomb and Assistant Jack Mollenkopf knew what was up immediately. They yelled to the halfbacks and succeeded in stopping It. The dressing rooms were gay and gloomy, respectively, as usual. The only significant fact to come from them was the success of the defense Indiana played. McMillin used a tight eight-man line, shifting from a 5-3 to 4-4 as Purdue plays demanded. On passes, Indiana moved quickly into what amounted to a 5-2-2-2. Bo called this "putting all our eggs in one basket, and I must say It worked awfully well." Holcomb called Indiana "a mighty fine football team. There's no doubt that they licked us. It was one of those things. On the blocked punt, we had a first down, but were penalized and then had to kick. Can't blame anyone for what happened." "THAT DEFENSE worried us," he said. "We couldn't get through it running and couldn't afford to pass against that shift until we were behind." But there was little disappointment in the Purdue performance on the part of many Boilermaker backers. Albeit grim, so many pas-sersby dropped in to congratu late Stu on a good Job that the Riveter dressing room might have been mistaken for the victors'. Trojans Capture Crown By Edging Uclans, 6-0 By ALEXANDER KAHN Los Angeles, Nov. 22 (UP) University of Southern California today won the Tacific Coast Conference championship and the right to represent the West in the Rose Bowl by edging out a fighting UCLA eleven 6 to 0 in the wildest football climax seen in years in the Los Angeles Coliseum. The finish of the game found 102,050 fans shrieking hysterically as the Bruins drove to the South ern California four-yard line then had their fourth-down pass intercepted In the end zone by halfback Gordon Gray. The victory left the Trojans the only undefeated Conference team on the Pacific Coast. THE TROJANS made their lone touchdown early in the second period by capitalizing on the known Bruin weakness against flat passes. A 32-yard flip from Quarterback Jim Powers to Halfback Jack Kirby in the end zone gave them the only score of the j game. And for the next 40 minutes of play a desperate UCLA team that had vowed it would win this game to make its season a successful one smashed away at the strong Trojan line only to be turned back time after time. But the greatest drive the Bruins put on was the fourth-period march down to the four- Crimson Dominates Bucket Encounter For Th ree Periods Before 33,500 Fans By HAROLD HARRISON, The Star Sports Editor Bloomington, Ind., Nov. 22 Rex Grossman, a 210-pound quarter back from Huntington, Ind., "kicked the bucket" today he kicked the Old Oaken Bucket right back into Indiana1 University's possession. Grossman's field goal, registered on the first play of the final period, was the margin that gave Indiana a 16-to-14 victory over the Boilermakers in this 50th game between the two state schools. As for Turdue, it was a case of not too little, but much too late. The Boilermakers were down, IS to 0, after Grossman's field goal, but they came steaming back for two touchdowns in the closing minutes that made it a ball game right up to the dying seconds. Only 20 seconds remained when the Boilermakers registered their final touchdown. They even tried a short kickoff In a desperate effort to get the ball, but that didn't work and time ran1 out after the Hoosiers had tried one play. A CROWD of 33,500 sat through this bleak November afternoon to watch chapter No. 50 in this stirring football duel. There was no rain during the game, but the field was sodden. This was Indiana's fourth straight triumph over Purdue the first time in history the Hoosiers ever have won four In row from the Boilermakers. It made the long series stand at 25 victories for Purdue, 20 for Indiana and five ties. Until the final quarter today it strictly was an Indiana game. Purdue never got Into Indiana's territory until the final period and that was one that found the Hoosiers tiring and the Boilermakers willing to take some long chances, But let it never be said it wasn't a football game Purdue made it in the final period. THE BOILERMAKERS were hopelessly outclassed up to that point, but they steamed back for seven first downs in that quarter and they had Indiana hanging on for dear life, ., v , . But the fact the Hoosiers were hanging on is no detraction from their game. It was agreed gener ally that It was Indiana's finest effort. As it finally wound up, In dlana had 15 first downs to Pur due's 12 and led in every phase of tne game. The scoreless first half was no Indication of Indiana's superiority By actual count, the Boilermakers had the ball for only 28 plays ana several of those were punts It began to look like an Indiana team of old as the Hoosiers romped at will until they were near scoring territory and then they'd slow down to a complete stop. THE THIRD quarter was dlf ferent, however, and the Hoosiers galloped away for two touch downs. , The first was the direct result of a blocked punt. Lou Mihajlo vlch blocked a Boilermaker punt from the Purdue 25 and completed the Job by falling on it at the Purdue nine. Purdue stopped the next play, but there was an off side penalty that moved the ball to the four and from there Dick Deranek cracked right tackle for the first touchdown of the game. Purdue's sortie from the kick off carried as far as the Boilermaker 44 as far as the Lafa yette lads had been all day and then Indiana struck again. Taking a Purdue punt on their own 10, the Hoosiers went 90 yards in just eight plays to score Thpy pluggpd along to their j own 41 and then a 5!)-yard pass yard line. Equally true was the fact that there Southetn Califor nia put on Its greatest goal line stand of the season. In that march the Bruins went from Southern California's 48, where the drive started, to the shadows of the goal before being stopped. In the desperate drive Fullback Jerry Shipkey ripped the Trojan line to shreds until the Bruins needed only two yards for a first down and four for a touchdown. There USC held. AND ON the fourth down play Halfback Ernie Johnson took a short lateral, ran back to find passing room and heaved into the end zone where Gray made his interception and thus ended the drive. The bitter battle was mainly a contest between tne iwo most powerful lines in the West. The Trojans' forward wall was bul warked at tackle by John Ferraro and at end by Paul Cleary while the Bruin line featured chiefly the work of Center Don Paul and End Tom Fears. Trojan Quarterback Jim Pow ers, a substitute for first string Signal Caller George Murphy, was the inspiration for the Trojan team as well as throwing the scoring pass, and the man who caught that ball Kirby also was a substitute who has only limited playing time this season, although one of the fastest runners on the squad.

Russell got well behind Bill Canfield and romped over the goal line after taking the toss. 1 THAT LOOKED like a plenty of points, but the Hoosiers still weren't satisfied for which they have much to be thankful. Norb Adams of Purdue fumbled and Indiana recovered on the Purdue 34. Russell and Deranek, a whale of a ball player all aft-ternoon, plugged to the 14 on fourth down as the quarter ended. ' Then Mr. Grossman arrived in the ball game. Russell, who previously had held the ball on a fake place kick, dropped back to hold the ball again. He teed the ball at the 20 and this time Grosman kicked for sure and It went over for thre more points.' They didn't seem too important at the time, but they got bigger as the game went along. rt'RDUE TOOK the next kick-off and went 66 yards for a touch down. Bob DeMoss' pass to Bob Whltmer, ruled complete by ln terference, blasted the Boilermakers from their own 38 to th Indiana 30 and that was the first time Purdue had been In Indiana territory. Then it was one smash into the line after another until Purdue finally had a first down on the two-yard stripe. Jack Ml-llto ground into the middle twice and still was Inches short of the goal line. From there Norb Adams made It over right guard. After an exchange of punts, Purdue started pounding again this time from Its own 34. Kenny Gorgal lost two trying to pass. Then there was an incomplete pass and, after that, Gorgal, trying to pass, circled right end to the Indiana 49. Dick Bushnell took over from that point and wheeled to the 23. Gorgal again tried to pass but, finding no receivers open, raced to the 15. Coach Stu Holcolbm rushed DeMoss back Into the game and he threw a touchdown pass to Ralph Weiger. IT WAS AFTER that play that Purdue tried Its short kickoff in a final effort to get the ball. Indiana's advantage in rushing was 192 yards to 161 and In pass-ing it was 118 to 40. That made the statistics just about as close as the score, even though the Boilermakers had to come up with their "too late" rush to make the score close. Indiana (18) Purdue (14). . .

With the long, drawn out battle enveloped in semi-darkness toward the end, Columbia was caught on two or three plays with only 10 men on the field and Syracuse followers tore down the Lion goal post with more than a minute of the contest remaining as the fans booed loudly. , But the Lions had long since sewed up their fifth straight triumph on two touchdown passes by Gene Rossides, who also had two others nullified by penalties, and two scoring line smashes by Fullback Ventan Yablonski, playing his last game for the Light .
