Yanks, Dodgers Capture Pennants Iowa State Cyclones Beat Kansas 19-6 Football Scores Lawrence, Kans., {/P) — Iowa State's Cyclones caught' the University of Kansas Jayhawks butter-fingered Saturday and marked up a 19-6 B:* Seven conference football victory. It was their first triumph over the Kansans in 4 years. A crowd of 20,000, a record turnout for a game between the .2 teams, saw the Cyclones strike twice for scores in the 2nd quarter. From there on in the lowans had the situation in hand. Both sides fumbled often, each making 4 but Iowa State managed to recover 2 of theirs. The Kansas fumbles along with interception of several of its passes, -»proved costly. A fumble set up the first Iowa State touchdown. Fullback Forrest Griffith fumbled on his own 24- yard line .and Iowa State's center Vince Beacom pounced upon it. On the next play shifty Bill Weeks passed 14 yards to Bob Angle who raced 10 yards for the touchdown. It was Angle, also, who raced 52 yards to Kansas' one-yard marker to put Weeks in position to go over for the 2nd touchdown. And it was an intercepted Kansas pass that gave the Iowa Stat- ers their 3rd and last scoring chance. Dick Gilman shot a pass intended for Aubrey Linville but it found State's Dana Omer under it. O.mer raced from his own 20-yard line to the Kansas 43. There Fullback Bill Chauncey went off tackle for 43 yards and the last' Iowa State touchdown. But it was Gilman who finally scored for Kansas. With 6 minutes left, he took the long chance. It was 4th down and 4 to go. The ball was on Iowa State's 3G. Gilman faded back as if to pass, then slipped off right end 36 yards for the lone Kansas touchodwn. Iowa State 0 13 0 Kansas 0 0 0 Brown ';»; Holy Cross U. Cornell :W; Colgate 27.

The crowd of some 37,000 fans saw Nebraska shackle the vaunted Minnesota ground attack in the first half. But Nebraska fell vic- Pittsburgh Thumps Northwestern 16-7 Evanstoii, (/P) — Pittsburgh's Snarling Panthers abandoned their customary role as punching bag for Big Ten football powers and upset Northwestern's 3- touchdown favorite Wildcats, 167, at Dyche stadium Saturday. It was as calamitous day for Northwestern which had been boomed as a bristling Big Ten title favorite. The Rose Bowl champions gained a' net of only 66 yards by rushing and were smothered for 76-yards in losses by slashing Pitt defenders. Reminiscent of the Pitt power teams under Jock Sutherland a decade ago, the Panthers subdued the confounded and sometimes pathetic Wildcats with an excellently-blended attack and a ferocious defense. ' From the time the Panthers marched 64 yards in 5 plays for a first period touchdown , until they struck for their second touchdown at the outset of the fourth period, Pitt was a grinding agres- sive machine. A crowd of 41,000 saw Jimmy Joe Robinson, 185-pound thunderbolt, score both Pitt touchdowns. The first came on a 14-yard pass from another brilliant performer, Halfback Lou Cecconi. The second on a 12-yard sprint, after a great feint around Northwestern's right end. tim to the Minnesota air attack engineered by Billy Bye and trailed at the half, 14 to 0. At the start of the third quarter, it was Nebraska's Fran Nagle who took over the aerial spotlight, passing Nebraska to a quick score, Ralph Damkroger receiving. Minnesota's line ace, Leo Nomellini, blocked the try for point. Before the quarter ended, Nebraska had been hit for 2 Minnesota scores and the game was in the Gopher bag. Bye's first-half pitches for Minnesota touchdowns went to End Gordon Saltau for a 29-yard overall gain, and then to Substitute Back Dale Warner for 12 yards The Bye-Warner touchdown toss followed a 29 yard run by Bye on a fake pass. Soltau placekickec both these points, plus the 2 in the third quarter. After Nagle had staged his brilliant pass assault against Minnesota—he threw for 43 yards in an 80-yard march—the Gophers turned on their power to sew up the game. It was Dave Skrien's show. The smashing fullback bulled 29 yards for one scoring run on which h literally ran over Tackle Dick Goeglein of Nebraska. Then afte: a short Nebraska punt into thi wind, Skrien traveled 27 yard in 3 smashes for the final score of the day. Minnesota's powerful line gav< Nebraska only 14 net yards bj rushing. Nebraska gained 62 bu lost 48. World Series Will Open at Yank Stadium Bums Shade Phils 9-7; Red Sox Tumble 5-3 By WILL GROISLEY ,, New Yock, (/P) —Still puffing from the closest 2-league finish since 1908, the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers collide Wednesday in the city's 8th subway world series. •« The fall championship playoff finds the Yankees in familiar surroundings. This is their 16th ap- earance in' the classic and tho 'lew Yorkers are solid favorites o capture their 12th world title. The early odds' establish Casey jtengel's taped-vip athletes as a 0-17 choice. If you like the Yan- vees you have to lay $17 to win 10. Open at Yankee Stadium The first 2 games, Wednesday nd Thursday, will be played in Yankee stadium, the vast struc- urc in the Bronx that seats 70,00. Without interruption, the series moves across the river to the 35,)00-capacity Ebbets Field Friday or 3 games, in case there isn't a weep. The last 2 games, if neces- ary, return to the stadium next \1onday and Tuesday. Inflation has made this New York's first "dime" series. The subway fare has been raised from a nickel to 10 cents since the last nterborough battle in 1947 when .hese same Yankees outlasted the Dodgers, 4 games to 3. Haven't Won Series The Dodgers, who have been in 4 previous world series and never won, also bowed to the Yankees in 19-11 by 4-to-l.

Lafayette, Ind., (/P) — Iowa's Hawkeyes grabbed 7 'Purdue fumbles Saturday and won their Western conference football opener, 21-7. Purdue had the statistical edge in everything but passing and loose ball snatching. It drove inside the Iowa 12-yard line 3 times without scoring. Quarterback Glenn Drahn's passing arm produced 2 of the Hawks' touchdowns—both following Purdue fumbles — and rugged Fullback" Don Riley set up Ihe other for Fred Ruck with^a 25-yard run. An estimated 32,000 fans were on hand to watch the lowans grab their first victory in Ross-Ade stadium since 1939. Drahn's first scoring pitch was for 28 yards to Left End Bob AtfcKenzie and the second for .24 yards to Right End Jack Ditlmer. Both were into the end zone without a hand laid on the receivers. Fullback John Kerestes, the game's standout plunger, produced Purdue's touchdown on a 10-yard end run early in the first quarter. He picked up 150 yards in 24 trips while Riley led Iowa with 43 in 10. Drahn completed only 5 ot 13 passes, compared with 5 of 8 for Purdue's Kenny Gorgal, but they gained 98 yards. Gorgal's aerials totaled 50 yards. Iowa was outgained on the ground, 235 yards to 148. Purdue drove 57 yards to Iowa's 2-yard stripe in th^ fourth quarter with Kerestes picking up most of the yardage. Purdue recovered one of its own fumbles al that point, but it helped Iowa hold for downs.

Michigan Rolls Over Outclassed Stanford Palo Alto, Cal., (/P) — Mighty Michigan steam-rollered over a willing but^ outclassed Stanford football team Saturday by a 277 count. A crowd of 88,000 fans, the largest of the season here, saw the Wolverines' wingback attack pulverize Stanford's defense for 3 touchdowns in the third period, after being held to a 7-0 lead at half time. Michigan, undefeated since October, 1946, .when Illinois turned the trick, racked up its 25th consecutive victory since then. Coach Benny Oosterbaan's hard- charging line flattened Stanford's less experienced crew on both offense and defense. Behind awesome blocking, the blue jersied ball packers from the middlewest ripped and ran through huge holes.

Phone 1488 Unbeaten Drake Topples Bradley Peoria, 111., (/P)—Joe Makarewicz led an unbeaten Drake eleven to an impressive 17-7 victory over Bradley Saturday night in a Missouri Valley conference football opener before a crowd of 8,500. The triumph gives Drake a record of 3 straight for the season with South Dakota State and.Em- pona State among its victims. Drake scored first in the opening quarter on a 37-yard run by Makarewicz which climaxed a brilliant 70-yard march. Bradley came back to tie the score 4 minutes later when Gib Cart passed 12 yards to Halfback Bob Flanagan who went over for the touchdown. But Flanagan, Bradley's No. 1 speedster, was bottled up the rest of the game while Drake rammed through 80 yards in a 3rd quarter drive to clinch the contest. Makarewicz again carried the ball over. Tackle Dick Steere kicked a field goal from the 19 and converted twice for Drake. . Drake has scored 99 points against 7 for its 3 opponents. Distributing Co. 1721 North Federal rhonc 839 VIC RASCHI —Tosses Clincher fore a crowd of 68,05,5 at Yankee Stadium. Vic Raschi set the Sox down with 5 hits, 3 of them coming in a bold 9th-inning 3-run rally. The Dodgers pushed across 2 runs in the 10th inning to repel the Phillies at Philadelphia 9-7. They thus escaped a tie and 3- game playoff with the pursuing St. Louis Cardinals, who bounded out of a slump to whip the Chicago Cubs 13-5. The failure of the gold-plated Bostonians and the pressure-tough ardinals provided a major sur- orisc. The Red Sox, built by Tom Yawkey's millions, were tabbed he best team in baseball and •uled heavy American league favorites. The Cardinals' old pros were figured to be the last to fade n the stretch, but they did—losing 4 of their last 5 games. 1908 Even Closer In 1908 3 teams in each league, nstead of 2, went down to the wire in brisk fights for- the flag. The Chicago Cubs and Detroit Tigers survived", and Chicago won the series. Seldom in the past has a world series caught 2 contenders in such an even physical state as this one. Both are weary from the rugged pennant drives and neither has its pitching staff ready for the pull. White-haired Burl Shotton manager of the Dodgers, said he wouldn't even hazard a guess on his probable starting pitcher. It probably will be one of his 2 aces, Preacher Roe or Don Newcombe. Crusty old Casey 'Stengel has Lefties Tommy Byrne and Ed Lo- pr.t ready for the Yankees. The Bronx Bombers, plagued by 71 different injuries during the season, should be in pretty good shape physically. Outfielder Joe DiMaggio, out the first half of the season with a heel ailment, has just rejoined his mates after a bout with a virus infection. Key Men Return He insists nu will be ready for full time duty. Tommy Henrich and Catcher Yogi Berra, other important Yankees who have been on the ailing list periodically, are back in good health. Other games Sunday had little effect on the final standings. In the American league, Cleveland, the 1948 champion, whipped De troit 8-4 to finish 3rd. Washington beat Philadelphia 3-0. St. Louis' Browns lost the first game with Chicago 4-3 but won the 2nd, 5-3. The National saw Boston's 1948 Champion Braves finish 4th, beating the New York Giants on the last day 2-1. Pittsburgh won the opener from Cincinnati 4-2 bul lost the 2nd game li-5. $1OO Enter FORD'S Safety SAfiff CHECK AND You can win one of these III Prizes "The Fashion Car of the Year" 4-door Custom V-8 Ford Sedans, equipped with Radio, "Magic Air" Heater, Overdrive, and White Sidewall Tires. 1 Bonus Built to Last Longer (Optional) .
