TO 65 By Maury Vliit. Staff Wriltr.) NORMAN, OKLA. Iowa State's errors turned into Sooner gold here Saturday as a broken-hearted gang of Cyclones helped Oklahoma to a 27-9 Big Six victory. A wind - swept homecoming crowd of 23,000, snapped to attention by an Iowa State team that led, 3-0, at the end of the first quarter, never settled back, although two Cyclone errors and two Sooner breakaway plays iced the game for Oklahoma. Long Runs Hurt.. An intercepted fumble and 13-yard run by Darrell Royal gave the Soonera their first score, an NEXT FOES. Fur Iowa Mate lrake. For Oklahoma Kansas State. Intercepted pass that was returned 43 yards set up their second. Both came in quarter No. 2. Then in the fourth quarter, Ed Kreick took a lateral and rambled across on a play that covered 85 yards, and just 30 seconds before the end of the game George Brewer sped 41 yards for the winners. Give Wrong Picture. Those were the plays all save ore, a single effort unearned in sequence that lost this ball game for Iowa State. They don't show the true nature of the game. Perhaps the count of first downs, 13 for the Cyclones and four for Oklahoma, may explain what happened here at Owen Field. It was the undermanned and outweighed Cyclones, fighting the same battle that is turning a losing season into a respectable showing, who controlled the play and who came much closer to winning than the score shows, lowans &oar Back. Trailing by 11 points, gained by Oklahoma on those two disheartening first-half scoring breaks, the Cyclones roared back with the start of the second half and kept slugging away on a drive that went all the way to the Soonera' six before it was stopprd. So intme was this drive that took most of the third period that Oklahoma controlled the ball on but FIVE plays during the entire quarter. It ua In llw fourth frame, after the Sooner had coIlwtiMi their third touchdown on Kreick's long scoot, his only play of the gam-, that Iowa State collected the marker they had really earned. Vic Weber returned the kickoff to the 2S, and Bill Chauncey and Ron Norman had slammed for a firH down. A 15-yard holding; penalty set the Cyclones back to the 25 and a minute later Webb Halbert lost five by rushing. This was the setup then: second down and 30 to go on the Iowa State 20. lloaring Webb Halbert, on the very next play, started around right end, reversed through the secondary, burst into the clear, and rambled 58 yards to the Oklahoma 22. Je-nsen lost a yard on an enrj-sround, and though Norman's pass to Jensen was incomplete, a Sooner roughing penalty set the ball up to the eight-yard marker. Norman's first pass was incomplete in the end zone, Bob Angel ran for three, and on third down Norman, fading far to elude the rushing Sooners, found Jensen for the "stretched out" marker. It was quit a ball game, thi fourth Big Six Io for the Cyclone and the first win for the Sooners. Iowa State opened it by plugging 44 yards to the Oklahoma 15. Fullback P.ay Klootwyk sparked this drive, once piling for nine yards after he had twice been hit behind the line of scrimmage. Thwarted once, the Cyclones kept bitir.g off yardage that didn't string together until their only real break of the ball game materialized toward the end of the quarter. Halhert Recovers. Norman had kicked out on the IS, and the Sooners had run two plays for no gain. On the third, as he started off left tackle. John ( Super Mouse) Allsup was hit hard. The ball slipped from hLs grasp, rolling free until it was ably covered by Stater Halbert on th 28. An offside penalty cost State five yards, but the Norman-Jensen skyline delivery quickly produced 11. Norman tried again. but was rushed, and a running play gained a yard.

LAWRENCE, KAN. WV-The University of . Kansas battered Kansas State into submission, 55-0, Saturday in a gruelling Big Six gridiron contest that saw one State player banished from the game and numerous unnecessary roughness penalties assessed. A crowd of 20,033, a new high for the series, watched the Wild cats absorb the worst licking 1 ( l ENTSM1NOER CM)I f gf .: X e- 'sss'f ' Vv Vrt Yv -'i ' aMsT la lis'ssinmsi I n asTiiTr is'J' i iaisli mill i"n i ss '''rW1aiiWiiasts1ssanWss Harold Entsmlnger of 9Hssouri goes down In a squeez play pushes him over the hack of Dale Adams. Missouri won, 47-8. three-pointer from the 19-yard line. The Sooners answering marker came after they had failed to do any good with the following kick-off. Quarterback Iloyal lifted a punt into the stiff wind, and it kept soaring for 65 yards, rolling over the goal. Civrn the ball on the 20, the Cyclonea took a five-yard back-field-in-motlon rap on the first play. Then th reliable Klootwyk, Who jiluycl liimaelf a game, ran sinurk Into a mess of Hooner trouble as h circled right end. Hit hard, the ball shot straight into the air. The alert Royal was on hand, grabbed the fumble, and easily evaded the only man who could have downed him in his 13- yard jaunt. It was six plays past this point, when th Sooners led. 7-3, that Oklahoma, save for that scoring play, had possession of the ball in Cyclone territory. Then they just barely nosed into Joua Stat ground, but ftoyal'ft nut-of-hoiindft kick on th wise put th Staters in trouble. They tried to run out, but couldn't, so on fourth down Nor man attempted to kick from the 20 but Guard Stanley West was through fast to block it, the ball bouncing back of the goal. Out of nowhere came the amaz ing air. HaiDert to scoop up the loose ball, tuck it under his arm, and wheel 27 yards up the field, just inches short of a first down. Given the ball there, the Sooners couldn't punch it over, and Norman jerked the Cyclones from a hole by kicking over Safety Man Dan 'Anderegg's head to the Sooner 33. Klootwyk then turned the tide, stealing Royal s pass on the State 48, then ramming back to the Sooner 43. It could have been a scoring drive, but it wasn't. For on the first play Don Ferguson, back to pass and without a receiver, aimlessly threw to rid himself of the ball and Sooner George Thomas intercepted on the 30 and ran all the way to Iowa State's 22. As the players moved down the field the Cyclones, apparently for talking out of turn to an official, were penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. From there, the seven, it took Halfback Brewer but two plays to smash it over. IOWA TATK- I.aun Bennett Brubsker ..... Ruot A nereon ...... KolllnRer ...... -!. OKLAHOMA 27. U FJ. U T. Tyree . . . .

DALLAS, TEX. W) Magnificent Doak Walker passed, ran and kicked Southern Methodist to a 14-13 victory over Texas Saturday in a thrilling offensive duel that left S.M.U. the only undefeated, untied team in the southwest. The chunky little man from Dallas bested Bobby Layne, his schoolboy pal of yesterday, in the heralded individual battle of stars. But even in defeat Layne, Texas' passin man, was a glittering standout in a battle that had a crowd of 45,000 in a nearly continuous uproar. A Walker pass set up th first touchdown and he took a pass to lead to the other. Then he planted both extra points between the goal posts as S.M.U. took over leadership in the Southwest conference race and started eyeing the Cotton Howl in which the conference champion is hot. The Mustangs broke in front three minutes after the game started and- never were headed although Texas drew into a tie early in the second period. It was short lived, however. Paul Page romped 81 'yards with a hand-off from Frank Payne on the opening kickoff, racing to the Texas 19-yard line. It required only six plays for S.M.U. to score. Three line tries failed but Walker passed to Dick McKls-sack on the four. McKissack made a yard at th line then Walker K handed off to Page who circled left end for the score. Layne passes led to both Texas touchdowns. Late in the first period, after Byron Gillory ran a punt back to the Southern Methodist 32, Layne pitched to Dale Schwartz-kopf for eight and to Max Bum-gardner for a first down on the S.M.U. 13. Jim Canady hit left guard for four, Tom Landry rapped left guard to drive to the three. Canady then made two at right guard and Landry climbed over the same position for the score. Frank Guess kicked th extra point. Southern Methodist grabbed back the lead midway in the second period. It was on a 73-yard drive with a 54-yard pass play from Gilbert Johnson to Walker eating up most of the distance. Walker was knocked KState, contest for kicking Ray Evans of Kansas in the head. The) boy, were tackling high at times and piling on when the ball carriers were already stopped Between the rough exhibitions, Kansas displayed a devastating running and passing attack that smashed State's 5-4-2 defense. So completely was K-State's attack bottled up that the Wildcats made but one first down in the first half- and couldn't penetrate farther than their own 37 until late in the game. The game was only three minutes old when Kansas registered the first of its eight touchdowns. With the ball on his 44, Bill llogan faded back and tossed as Tom Novak of Nebraska W1REPHOTO UP). UV!

CP) - ' Yale- parked by Ferd Nadherny's two touchdowns, edged out scrappy Dartmouth, 23-14 Saturday in a spirited Ivy league football battle. The Blue held a big advantage over the Indians," who, despite, the score, -were a constant threat. A. crowd of 63.000 saw the contest. Nadherny scored his two touchdowns in the first half, and Bill Booe converted twice and kicked a field goal from a difficult angle while standing on the 25-yard line to give Yale a 17-point halftime lead. Then, in the third quarter, a Tex Furse to John Setear pass climaxed a 70-yard drive, and Booe's placement, appeared to apply the knockout blow to the Indians. But Dartmouth suddenly found itself and began to click. Wilcomb Washburn fell on Jim Fuchs muff on th Yale 26 and quickly advanced to Gruelling Contest intercepted a pass on the 35 and lateraled to McNutt and the quarterback went 25 yards for another touchdown. The half ended with K.U. in front 27-0. Stat yielded two more touchdowns in the third quarter, with Forrest Griffith, whose hard-running was on of th game's features, going JO yards for on and Patte driving over from th fiv for th other. Kansas State presented its best offensive in the final frame, but at that the K.U. second and third stringers managed to count two touchdowns. McNutt passed to Joe Mendenhall for one and Le-roy Robison climaxed a 43-yard drive by smashing through the greater than expected and made it look easy.

Dawson came through for the forty-seventh marker. Standouts. In defeat, Center Tom Novak, Back Fischer and Back Bill Moomey were standouts. For Missouri, the big jobs were turned in by Bus Entsminger, Howard Bonnett and Center Bob Fucha, a powerhouse on line backing. Facts and figures testified to Tiger supremacy. Mizzou piled up 19 first downs to Nebraska's five, had a 168-yard edge on rushing and held a 87- yard pull on passing. The Missourtans, in winning. sent out notice to Kansas and Oklahoma that they're ready. Missouri turned three sudden breaks into scores in the opening half against a dull Cornhusker eleven. The game was less than nine minutes along before Mis souri grabbed a fumble on the Nebraska 29, punched to the nine on a pass from Entsminger to Oakes and then went the rest of the way on a right aide aweep, Entsminger tossing a lateral to Bill Day for the touchdown. Bob Dawson converted to make it 7-0. Iluaker Kick Blocked. An 80-yard quick kick by Day set Nebraska back on its 10 shortly, and the Cornhuskers could get only to the 29. There a Husker kick was blocked by Oakea and the Tigers recovered on the visitors 45 and ran to the 20. A pass failed and then Entsminger scooted around his left flank to score standing up for 13-0 with 80 seconds of the quarter gone. Dawson made it 14-0. An intercepted forward pass and a 45-yard gallop by Center Bob Flich of the Tigers gave Missouri a 20-0 edge midway through th second stanza. .NKHRASK Cochrane , . , Too good: . . , Wllkina ....
