Van Every has just picked up 9 yards around left end on the play to get to the East 43-yard line. A pass from Bill Oglesby to Chuck Murr followed this play to carry to the 15 and set up the first Mason City touchdown. An unidentified player for the Scarlets comes in to help with the tackle. East Des Moines Wins 32-13 From Mason City By JIM VANHEEL, Sports Editor The East Des Moines Scarlets .gained full revenge from last season's drubbing by the Mason City Mohawks as Coach Herb Hein's capital city crew flattened Mason City 32-13 Friday night at Roosevelt stadium. Wayne Bergstrom, fleet halfback, was too much for the Mohawks to handle as he counted 4 touchdowns in the game. They came 1 on runs of 22, 47, 22 and 53 yards. It was the greatest one- man scoring show on Roosevelt field since Peewee Day ran wild against Charles City back in 1942. Move When It Counts The Scarlets didn't need a ground-eating attack to dominate play. They made only 6 first downs in the game but the 310 yards rushing tells the tale— The Summaries Score by quarters: MASON CITY 0 1 B 0—13 EAST D. M 13 13 1) B—32 Mason East City D. M.

East dominated the offensive nlay through some fine downfielc blocking. The ball toters were able to pick up their blockers fo sizeable gains." On defense, the East line was plenty rugged from end to end and held a clean margin in outcharging the Mo hawk front wall. The winners wasted no time in rolling.

Mason City did manage to , quell any serious bid of the Scarlets in the 3rd quarter although East lost the ball on downs on the Mohawks 38-yard line. In the last stanza, a punt got Mason City in the hole and when the Mohawks kicked out of danger East had the ball on their own 47 with only a minute and a half to go in the game. Bergstrom had been idle most of the 2nd half but he put the finishing touch to the game by sweeping right end and going down the sidelines for the final score. The victory pulled the once- defeated East crew into a tie for the Big" Six lead with West Waterloo at 2-0 records. The defeat was the 4th for Mason City in 5 games. By TIM MOKIARTY New York, (U.R)—That Alabama football squad, billed throughout the south as a "team of future," Saturday shaped up as a pretty good "team of the present." The Crimson Tide, loaded down with a flock of sophomore backs, displayed amazing scoring potential as it hammered Duquesne 488 Friday night before an estimated 15,000 home-town fans. Jim Burkett, Alabama's speedy fullback, highlighted the game with a 101-yard runback of a kick. It was the longest run turned in by an Alabama back since the Southeastern conference was organized in 1933. In an intersectional game at Philadelphia, Villanova gained its 4th straight victory by edging St. Mary's of California 28-20. Steve Romanik, lanky Villanova quarterback, fired 2 touchdown passes. Temple turned back Syracuse 27-14 in a mud brawl witnessed by an estimated 20,000 fans at Syracuse. Paul Dubenetzky, unhampered by a driving rainstorm, pitched 2 touchdown passes, while the Owls picked up their other 2 tallies on line bucks by Bill Bernardo. In other major games, Jim Ryan unloaded 4 touchdown tosses in leading the University of San Francisco to a 38-14 victory over Detroit, Hawaii university's razzle-dazzle attack buried Denver under a 27-14 count and Drake whipped South Dakota 48-6. There were a number of key intersectional games on Saturday's program, topped by "a battle of the Giants"—Michigan vs. Army at Ann Arbor. This game, which was expected to draw a crowd of 90,000, loomed as a passing duel between Michigan's Chuck Ortman and Army's Arnie Califfa. Michigan put a 25-game victory string on the line, while the Cadets were xinbeaten in 13 games. Ohio State traveled to the west coast to battle Southern California in a game regarded as a preview of next year's Rose Bowl classic. Other major intersectional games brought together Duke and Navy, Texas Christian and Indiana, Oklahoma A. & M. and Missouri, Michigan State and Maryland and California and Wisconsin. Iowa Hawks Rule Slight Favorite to Beat Illinois Iowa City, (U.R 1 ) — Iowa was a slight favorite to beat Illinois for the first time since 1941 Saturday as the 2 Big Ten teams met before a crowd expected to reach 49,000.

In this article, Page tells how he won.) By JOE PAGE New York, (U.R)—This was one time I had a real close shave. Those homeruns in the 9th inning by Olmo and Campanella were the result of 2 things— tiredness and carelessness. Against Olmo i simply eased up. I figured he'd be taking instead of swinging on the pitch that he hit into the stands. Curve Didn't Break But he fooled me completely. With Campanella it was different. I was a lot more careful but a lot more tired, too. My curve, instead of breaking sharply, just hung up there and Campanella did the rest. You can bet I was careful when they sent Edwards up to bat for Branca. I kept feeding him my fast ball and the last pitch of the game, the one Edwards struck out on, was a fast one right on the corner of the plate. Those Brooklyn hitters can make life interesting for you when you're out there on the mound. Especially that guy Reese. He's always jumping around and looking like he's going to belt your brains out. Praise for Branca While I'm on the subject of the- Dodgers, I'd like to say that Branca pitched a whale of a ball game. He had it Friday. Believe me. I know when I batted against him he showed me a curve and fast ball that made me stand up and take notice. Maybe there was a lot of pressure on me when I came into the game in the 4th, but I didn't notice it. All I knew was that the bases were full, Olmo was at the plate and I had to get him out. That's all I was concerned about. I used a fast ball on Olmo and got him on a foul fly which Tommy Henrich made a great catch on. Then I threw a side-arm curve to Snider and he hit it on the ground to Coleman. The item that pleased me most was my control. I think it was pretty good Friday. You know, I never realized that a few rain drops fell out there in the 9th. But there was a good reason. I kind* of had my hands full.

WARTBURG DEFEATS BUENA VISTA 6-0 Storm Lake, (U.R) — Wartburg won a 6-0 Iowa Conference victory over Buena Vista Friday night, setting up the lone touchdown by recovering a fumble. Halfback Paul Bruns plunged over from the dne-yard line after Center Marshall Becker recovered a Buena Vista fumble on the 2- yard line midway through the last period. ll'JPUffl!

Drake Drubs South Dakota in 48-6 Game Des Moines, (U.R)— Coach Warren Gaer used nearly every one of his 60 players Friday night as his Drake Bulldogs pummeled South Dakota university 48-6. About 10,000 fans saw Drake keep its 1949 record spotless at 4 straight wins in 70-degree heat. The visitors held Drake in check for the first 11 minutes, but then Sophomore . Johnny' Bright and his mates got going. Bright made the first touchdown shortly before the end of the first period on a 13-yard run. He scored the 2nd on a 12-yard jaunt In the 2nd period. Bright set up both touchdowns with passes to End Tom Bienemann, and the same passing combination scored the 3rd touchdown, also in the 2nd quarter, on a 54-yard play. South Dakota scored its lone touchdown in the 3rd period on a one-yard plunge by Howie Blumhardt after a 15-yard penalty put them in position. touchdowns in the Reynolds Is Brilliant in Relief Stint By JACK HAND Ebbets Field, Brooklyn, (fi>)— Allie Reynolds, the opening day shutout hero, retired the last 10 men in succession Saturday after relieving Ed Lopat to save a 6-4 New York victory over Brooklyn. The win gave the Yanks a commanding 3-1 game edge in the 46th World Series. The Yanks took a bulging 6-0 lead into the 6th inning before the Dodgers aroused the sellout crowd of 33,934 by knocking out Lopat with 7 singles in a 4-run inning. Then came Reynolds, the oft- relieved, to turn in a sparkling relief job that rivalled Joe Page's effort of Friday. Walking in with the tying run on first base and 2 out in the 6th, Allie curler a 3rd called strike past Pinch Hitter Spider Jorgensen to end the big Brook threat. YANKEES FIRST: Rizzuto, alter taking the first pitch lor a ball, lined a single to center. The game was held up until the Brooklyn bat boy took sunglasses out to Olmo. Henrich, after fouling off 5 pitches with a 2 and 2 count, singled to right, sending Rizzuto to 3rd. Joe Hatten, a left hander, began warming up for Brooklyn. Berra grounded to Miksis, and Rizzuto was caught off 3rd and run down ; Miksis to Campanella. Henrich had gone beyond 2nd and was caught off, Campanella to Robinson for a double play. Berra was safe on first on a fielder's choice. D i M a g g i o walked, Berra going to 2nd. It was the first base on balls which Newcombe had given up in his 2 World Series appearances. After Newcombe pitched 3 straight balls to Brown, Coach Clyde Sukeforth went out to the mound to confer with him. Brown then walked on the next pitch, filling the bases. Woodling filed to Snider. No runs, 2 hits, no errors, 3 left. DODGERS FIRST: Reese took a called strike and then doubled off the left field wall. Miksis dropped a ground ball just in front of the plate and was out, Berra to Henrich, Reese holding 2nd. Snider grounded out, Brown to Henrich, Reese holding 2nd. Rizzuto made a glove-handed stop of Robinson's hard hit ground ball and got his man at first when Henrich took his throw out of the dirt just in time. No runs, one hit, no errors, one left. YANKEES SECOND: Mapes grounded out, Newcombe to Hodges. It was a hard hit liner, which took one bounce into Newcombe's glove. Coleman fouled to Campanella. Lopat flied to Snider. No runs, no hits, no errors, none left. DODGERS SECOND: Hodges flied to Woodling. Olmo went out the same way. Campanella grounded out, Lopat to Henrich. No runs, no hits, no errors, none left.

SO MUCH WAS MASON CITY'S DOMINATION IN THE LAST 3 PERIODS, AUSTIN GOT ONLY ONE FIRST DOWN, AND THAT WAS BY PENALTY. Two excellent chances for Trojan scores in the 3rd both fizzled on the 6, one with an incomplete pass and the other with a backfield in motion foul-up. Penalties, sparse as they were, figured very prominently in the game's outcome. So did a strong south wind which enabled Austin, with its back to the wall, to loft punts of 65 and 55 yards in the final quarter when Mason City was carrying the fight to the Blue Devils. Fisch hauled the opening kickoff back 9 to his 31. Austin ran 12 plays to make their counter as Fisch jabbed out 3 first downs and a penalty provided another. Dick Larson, left half, finally went over from the 4 but Dick Chaffee's point try was blocked by a horde of Trojans. '•'-, Fisch Flies Fred Stephen was almost away, and did get 30 yards soon after the ensuing kickoff, but a fumble was recovered by Austin on their 42. Fisch got 12, a pass netted 12 and then with the ball on the 23, the human torpedo exploded right through the middle for the score. He ran the extra point for a 13-0 margin. That was to be the main Austin contribution to the night's show. Gar Bieber caught the next kickoff on the goal line and The Summaries Snore by quarters: MASON CITY J. C 0 B 8 C—15 AUSTIN J.

Bud Quinley got off a long flip to Roger Hathway and pass interference was ruled against Austin for a first down on the 7.

Fisch punted from his own 39. The ball went 20 yards forwards and 17 yards in reverse where the Trojans got it on the 42. A Stephan to Nutting pass went to the 24 and 4 straight running plays took it to the 6 with 3rd do\vn coming. But Stephan was stopped and an aerial missed Chris Demos in the end zone. Austin was trapped and wound up with a weak 18-yard punt from its own one. But once again Mason City could go no farther than the 6.

And with 2 minutes left and time supposedly out; a sloppy official let 30 seconds dance around the clock as Trojan hopes drifted into futility. The Trojans were lackadaisacal in that first period but their grea + comeback overshadowed their start. Their passing netted 101 yards, more than they made in the 3 previous games and blocking was good most of the way.

And Danny Gardella, the eccentric New York Giants war-time outfielder and subsequent Mexican league jumper, whose $300,000 damage suit gave the game's bigwigs many a nightmare, was free to return to baseball with the St. Louis Cardinals—if he can make the grade. In the midst of the World Series hubbub, the National' league announced. Friday night that Gardella, one' of 18 players banned from organized baseball for 5 years for jumping to the Mexican league in 1946, had agreed to drop his damage suit. In return for removing the-last threat to organized baseball's reserve-- clause, which gives club owners an iron-clad rule over the careers of thousands of baseball players, Gardella was immediately reinstated and given a 1950 contract with the St. Louis Cardinals. Despite the accord of the parties involved, however, it was generally agreed that organized baseball had paid high to forestall a kndck-down-and-drag-o'ut challenge to the constitutionality of the reserve clause—an issue it has tried to keep out of the courts for years. In circles where baseball's most prominent figures gathered for the World Series, it was guessed that the game's leaders had paid up to $100,000 to induce Gardella to drop his suit.
