(A 1 )—A desperate 33-yard touchdown pass with a minute and a half left gave Northwestern a 20-14 victory over Army Saturday before 40,000 at Dyche Stadium. Until Northwestern Quarterback Bob Burson flipped the second of his two touchdown passes Army's gallant forces had an upset in the making. Army battered through Northwestern, a tare* touchdown favorite, for two lightning-quick touchdowns in the third period for a 14-7 lead. The game seemed in the bag for the Cadets when Northwestern failed in its point try after its second touchdown early in the fourth quarter and trailed 14 to 13. The Cadets erased a 7-0 Northwestern lead and moved ahead in the third period when they recovered a blocked Wildcat kick in the end zone and Johnny Wing raced 44 yards for a touchdown. Northwestern, which had scored in the first period on a 60-yard drive culminated by a 42-yard scoring pass from Burton to End Joe Collier, came back furiously in th.e fourth period. The Wildcats ripped 80 yards in 16 plays for their second touchdown, with Burton pulling a quarterback sneak across from the one-yard line. It was at Northwestern this point that seemingly blew the ball game when Kragseth's point try veered off and hit the goal standard, bouncing back into the field. That left Army ahead, 14 to 13. With time running out, Northwestern moved 56 yards for the clinching touchdown. This came with 1:30 left as Burton heaved a 33-yard pass to Crawford, who grabbed the ball in the end zone just in front of the goal post. This time Kragseth converted, and that made the final count 20-14.

Caas at Sixth . IMal J-50M By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK yP>—Lippy Durocher's wonder boys walloped the Yankees 6-2 Saturday for their second World Series victory and for the first time established themselves as favorites to capture the big playoff. Egged on by 52,035 fans, greatest crowd ever to witness a series game in a National League park, the Giants slammed Vic Ra«chi from the hill in a five- run, fifth inning uprising capped by Whitey Lockman's home run. Until Gene Woodling whacked a husky homer off Reliefer Sheldon Jones with one out in the ninth, the mighty Bombers had collected only four hits off tall Jim Hearn in eight and two- thirds innings. Sal Maglie Ready Sunday the National League champs will be playing on their home grounds again and they have Sal Maglie, the League's finest righthander, well rested and anxious to get at Casey Sten gel's crew. With two of his top {lingers, Allie Reynolds and Raschi, already knocked for the box in their two starts, Stengel was reduced to calling on Johnny Sain, veteran of many National League campaigns who came to the Yanks on waivers during the season. Until he finally lost his control completely in the eighth inning, Hearn pitched inspired ball Saturday. But walks finally got the curve- bailer from Atlanta. When he issued his eighth pass of the session to Joe Collins with two away in the eighth to force across the Yankees' first run and leave the bases loaded, Durocher waved in Jones to retire Hank Baure on a tap to the mound. Yanks Strand 11 It was a rather raggedly fielded game, each team commiting a pair of errors.

Johnson scored again minutes later after an Oshkosh back fumbled the kickoff and Eau Claire recovered on the 10. A penalty moved the ball to the one, from which point Johnson went across.
