.. 12 Oct. 3, 1949 Mason City Globe-Gxzelto, M»son City, la. St. Ambrose Victor 2.8-12 Over Loras Dubugue—St. Ambrose college electrified a crowd of 10,500 with a dynamic 2nd half to repel Loras 28-12 here Sunday in the traditional battle between the 2 Iowa Catholic rivals. It was Loras' 1st defeat of the year and the 2nd in 3 years for a Wally Fromhart- coached Duhawk eleven. Pushed up and down the field ^ by a smooth Loras running and in a book, short passing attack during the entire, first half, the undefeated Saints came back with a manhandling display nothing short of terrific. They raced to a pair of touchdowns in the first 5 minutes of the 2nd half, added another before the quarter was over and built their lead to 28-fi in the 4th before Loras scored again. It was Don Doody, a 5-8, 182- pound fullback, who broke the Duhav/ks back with 2 TDs and who rocked the turf for yardage that led to the others. He was everywhere. First the Saints would use a deceptive spread formation- and send him through the middle. Then, with the Loras defense tightened, they'd send him sweeping the ends and he never was stopped for less than 5 yards a crack. Loras' first score came with 15 seconds remaining in the opening half. Dick Zaleski hit Ralph Peterson with a 22-yard pass to do it. Two other Duhawk drives had been choked off by penalties. .Then came the storm. Ambrose with crackling line play, went straight down the field on its running game and Doody took a house full of tacklers over the goal with him from the 9. Tim Madden kicked the first of 4 perfect placements and Lovas was behind for the first time this year. The Saints held the Duhawks in check, on the ensuing kickoff and lunged goalward again, going over on a'pass, Lee Matera to Ed Scheck. Their 3rd marker of the period was set up by a weak Loras punt which rolled out on the 14: Three plays later St. Ambrose had the game sacked up as Doody "dood-it" again. Jack Mooney made it 28-6 in the 4th with a 7-yard jaunt over the goal. Loras' final counter was an anti-climax. The Duhawk aerial combine of Jack Rohan to Jerry Witry clicked on a long Ijass to the 2 and Dick Mares, the fast-running ace of the day scored. Witry's pass snatching from Rohan and Zaleski was largely responsible for Loras' 190 yards in the air; 14 of 27 flings being com- pleted. Penalties were frequent in the tense Midlands loop contest. Ambrose lost 105 yards and Loras 100 in the fray. In the Du- hawks' behalf it can be said they didn't receive a break in the game but they couldn't make any of their own, either, especially in the Iowa's Hawks Off to Duplicate Records of 1939 Iron Men? By ED SAINSBURX Chicago, (U.R) — Dr. Eddie Anderson's Iowa Hawkeyes, starting on the same path that the "Iron Men" of Nile Kinnick and company followed in 1939, may find out this week whether dreams of Big Ten grid title contention are nightmares or the real thing. The 1939 wonder*team from Iowa City didnt' win the conference crown, but it finished 2nd and surprised the Big Ten and the nation with a lot of wins that nobody believed could be written And this year the Anderson crew are coming out the same way. Not since 1939 had Iowa beaten Purdue at home. Kinnick and crew did it then. But Satur- Conference Standings BIG SIX \V West Waterloo 2 East D. M .1 Fort Dodge 1 Mason City 0 North D. M 0 East Waterloo 0 L 0 0 1 1 1 1 NORTHEAST IOWA day Glenn Drahn and playmates repeated 21-7 showing passing accuracy and extreme alertness. Eight times Purdue fumbled and 7 times Iowa recovered, most of the time in Boilermaker territory. Their 3 touchdowns coming after these breaks were plenty to win. Saturday Iowa might find out some more. Ray Eliot's fighting Illini, with a record of 2 ties in 2 starts this season, come to Iowa City to test the Hawks and while Iowa will be favored, Illinois probably won't fumble 8 times. It could be a good ball game. Illinois came from behind to tie Wisconsin 13-13 Saturday and while Iowa probably will be favored to win, the Illini might improve enough before Friday to furnish a good test, And normally Iowa-Illinois scraps are pretty close contests. One other conference game is on Saturday's program, Northwestern at Minnesota. Both teams were rated as title contenders and Minnesota still warranted the rating after a 28-6 win over Nebraska Saturday. Northwestern, perhaps with the players attention directed too much to the Minnesota contest, went down before Pittsburgh's rugged line and veteran backfield 16-7. There will be 5 non-conference games this weekend, 2 of them rating national attention. Michigan will meet Army for the 3rd time since 1940 and the Wolverines, seeking to avenge 2 wartime defeats, will be favored to down the mighty Cadets at Ann Waverly 3 Oelwein 2 Decorah 2 Charles City 2 New Hampton ....

Former Major League Relief Ace Loses Arm Mexia, Texas, (/P)—Fred "Firpo" Marberry, one of the top major league relief pitchers, lost his left arm in an automobile accident near here early Sunday. In 13 years in the majors, he won a total of 146 games and lost 87 for Washington and Detroit and was a prime factor in Washington's 1924-^S pennant winners and Detroit's 1934 champs. GAME ADDED TO CARD Garner—Garner high school has added a game to the football schedule and the Cardinals will play Renwick at Renwick Friday night. diana Saturday 46-7 in a league contest, will face a rugged test at Los Angeles against Southern California, picked as one of the top title contenders in the Pacific Coast league. Wisconsin also engages west coast competition, Pappy Waldorf's California Bears who lost to Northwestern in the Rose Bowl, in the last of a 4-game series at Madison. Waldorf's 11 was sure to be favored over the Badgers, even Uiough Ivy Williamson's young crew has exceeded, pre-season expectations in going through 2 games without losing. Indiana, soundly trounced in both games this year, will battle Texas Christian at Bloomington arid the game probably could go either way without being classed as an upset. Purdue, bumped twice by nearly identical scores of 20-6 and 21-7, runs up against Notre Dame at Layfayette, and it ought to be number 31 in the Irish string of games without loss. McGuire Named State President of A. A. U. Cedar Rapids, (U.R)—Jack McGuire, Iowa State college swimming coach, continued as president of the Iowa A. A. U. Monday as Marshalltown prepared to be host for the 4th straight year to the men's A. A. U. cage tourney. McGuire was re-elected president at the annual session Sunday. Hugo Otapalik, Cyclone wrestling coach, was named first vice president; Leslie Renquist, Des Moines, was elected 2nd vice president, and Alex Fidler, Cedar Rapids, was named 3rd vice president. Lillian Whiting, Des Moines, was reelected secretary-treasurer. The association awarded the 1950 men's basketball tournament to Marshalltown for the 4th straight year. Paul Norris, tournament manager, was authorized to set the exact dates some time in mid-February. PONTIAC Prescribed Service Our business is cars.

Phone 1144 Chicago Bears Beat Cards 77-7; Browns Crush Dons 42-7 New York, (JP) — The mighty mights — the Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears—have established themselves as early-season favorites in the professional football rankings. The Browns, 3 times All-America conference champs, clung to their first place lead by crushing the Los Angeles Dons 42-7 at Cleveland. The Browns, with a 4-0-1 record, .lead San Francisco which has a 4-1-0 slate. The Bears, meanwhile, smothered their National league rivals, the Chicago Cardinals, 17-7 to share the western division's top rung with the Los Angeles Rams, who smashed Green Bay '48-7. Each is unbeaten in 2 starts. A record Comiskey Park crowd —52,867 — saw the Bears' mammoth line stymie the Cardinal's vaunted running game. Led by Johnny Lujack, the Bears punched out 2 touchdowns and a fieldgoal in the first half for all their scoring. Another AAC game saw the Baltimore Colts score their first victory, upsetting the Buffalo Bills 35-28 in the waning seconds. Indianapolis Takes 2-0 Lead in Montreal Series Montreal, (U.R)—The Indianapolis Indians of the American Association took a strangle-hold on the 1949 Little World Series Monday with 2 quick victories in enemy territory over the weekend. The Indians defeated the Montreal Royals, International league playoff winners 5-1 Sunday and have only one more game to play at Montreal Tuesday night before returning home for the final four games (if they are needed). Indianapolis won the Saturday game by the same 5-1 score. AMERICAN LEAGUE Batting—Kcll, Detroit, M'M; Williams, Boston, .3l27r>. Runs — Williams, Boston, 150; Jonst, Philadelphia, 12U.

SKELLEY Des Moines, (IP) — Iowa's 4 major football teams are off and running in the inside lanes in their respective conference races. Here's the unprecedented early season situation for Iowa's championship challengers: Iowa — Tied with Ohio State and Northwestern for the Big Ten lead (1-0). Iowa State—At the top of the Big Seven with Kansas State (1-0). Drake—Tied with Detroit for the Missouri Valley front spot (1-0). Iowa Teachers — Deadlocked with South 'Dakota State for the North Central lead (1-0). Bright Future And the immediate future is bright. Drake, after tossing Bradley 17-7 in its first conference game, expects to run its victory string to 4 against South Dakota university at Des Moines Friday night. Next valley contest for Drake is the Oklahoma A. & M. battle at Stillwater Oct. 15. The Bulldogs won't be the pre-game choice in that one. Iowa, Iowa State and Teachers, however, will carry the favorite's tag into their next conference games. / The Saturday schedule sends Iowa against Illinois at Iowa City, Iowa State against Colorado at Boulder and Teachers against South Dakota State at Brooklngs.
