r 1 '. d F tr L p IL Texas Aggies Ragged, Sputter Past Texas T$ch, 20 - 7 Toe Bums Beat Tilts Today BOSTON (AP)-iNew York's ataazing Giants took over undisputed possession of first place for a few hours Satur day in tne sizzling National League pennant race and then settled for a deadlock as the Brooklyn Dodgers also came through with a victory in a night game. The Giants blanked Boston's Braves, 3-0, at Braves field as sad Sal Maglie spun brilliant five hitter for his 23rd victory. The victory, New York's sixth straight and its 36th in the last 43 games, climaxed an irrepressible surge that began Aug. 12 when they trailed Brooklyn by 13 M games. It marked the first time the Giants ever had first place all to themselves. But it lasted only until the Dodgers whipped the Phillies 5-0 under theligbts at Philadelphia. Each team? closed out its regular season Sunday against the same opponents. The Giants solved southpaw warren Spahn for only five hits I n eight innings, but broke through for single tallies In the econd and fifth innings to whip the crafty lefthander for the sixth time this year. They added an in lurance run against reliefer Vern Bickford in the ninth. It was Spahn's 14th defeat against 22 wins. The thoroughly-aroused Dodger crashed the Phillies, 5-0, behind big Don Newcombe's fiery fast ball pitching. Newcomb, achieving his 20th pitching victory of the season, set the Phils down with seven hits. He received, sensational fielding support from Jackie Robinson and Billy Cox as well ns the solid backing of ten hits by hi team mates including a two-run homer by Andy Pnfko. The Dodgers got off to an early lead and this time they held it. hammering Robin Roberts hard end taking advantage of every Thilly rmcue. There were plenty of these ni the Phils made four errors and gave up three unearn ed runs. Rig Newk, biasing his fast one pasr tne rainy Dntters, was in danger ' of being scored on only twice and each time Robinson started a double play to get him out of it. Newcombe struck out three Phils in the second Inning and didn't yield hit until the third, after he had a four run lead. Then with runners on first and second, he bore down and retired three of the hardest-hitting Phils to save his shutout In Sunday's game the Giants will pitch Larry Jansen (21-11) Cains Boston's Wilson (7-6), and the Dodrers will send Preacher Roe (22-3) against Philadelphia's Bubba Church (15-11). In other major league games Saturday that had no bearing cn V the Dennant races, the American . League champion New York Yankees .beat the Boston Red Sox In a doubleheader, 4-0 and 3-1; the Cleveland Indians edged the Detroit Tigers. 7-8. in 13 innings the Chicago White Sox trimmed the St. Louis Browns, 8-3; the St. Louis Cardinals eat the- Chi-Reds knocked off Pittsburgh 4-3 eago Cubs, 4-3; the Cincinnati Reds knocked off Pittsburgh 4-3; and the Philadelphia Athletics downed the Washington senators 8-1. The Yankee took U easy In knocking off the Bosox in the doubleheader, for they clinched the pennant Friday when they took a twin -bill from Boston on Friday behind the pitching of AMU Reynolds and Vie Rascal. Remolds pitched a no-hitter In the first game Friday, to become the second hurjer in the majors to ever pitch two ho-hit-ters in one season. The other was Johnny Vandermeer of the Cincin-raU Reds who accomplished the fate In 1938. TCU Pummels Nebraska, 28-7 LINCOLN, Nebr.. :(JP) Texas Christian, a fine team of oppor tunist. exploded a three-touch down barrage on Nebraska in the second period Saturday to start the Tf xsns on their way to a 28-7 football victory. A crowd of 38,000 saw the Texas elub score twice in the first four nd one-half minutes of the second Quarter to wipe out a 7-0 Nebras ka lead, gained in the opening period. The Nebraska score had come largely through a Texas Christian pass Interference penalty In the end sone. But this break was erased on the second play f the second quarter. That was when quarterback Johnny Bordogna fumbled the ball on the Nebraska eight, the ball rolling backward into the end zone where end Wayne Martin of TCU fell on it. for the tieing touchdown. Texas Christian came right back after a short Nebraska punt with 48-yard march ending when Bobby Floyd went over from the three yard line. Before the quarter ended, TCU scored for the third time after blocking a Tom Carodine punt on the Nebraska 29. On the very next flay, the TCU star, Malvin Power, passed to end Bob Blair for the score. TCU got its last score midway a the fourth on an eight yard vhrow from Fowler to Danny Hallmark. Keither Flowers kicked four xtra points. Nebraska played without All-America Bob Reynolds, who was sidelined with a shoulder injury. . However, Nebraska showed nothing in the way of the kind of an explosive offensive line that so constantly broke Reynolds into the span last year, and it is doubtful that Reynolds could have staved tt this licking. Phils, 5 to 0; End Season Clemson Downs Surprising Rice By 20-14 Count HOUSTON (UP) Polished Clemson, a titan in the Southern conference, mixed a smooth pass ing and running brew Saturday for a 20-14 victory over Rice Ins titute before 35,000 fans.

In the line, lanky Bob Patton, a fast charging tackle, played the outstanding defensive game of the night, smothering Rice ball carriers time aftertime. The inexperienced Owls played spasmatic balL Then only managed to put together three sustained drives, two of them going for touchdowns, however. The Tigers drove 77 yards for their first touchdown primarily on Hair's passing. He hit kempson with a 20-yard pass for the score.

A partisan crowd of 25,000 looked on in silence and amazement as frately outmanned Iowa swept to a 26-7 lead midway of the second quartet.

Williams, 205 bounds of spring - legged end, pounced on three Purdue fumbles. Center Barton was a stone post in the road of Purdue's second half drive which piled up heavy yardage too far from the goal line. Halfback Gib Dawson scored both Texas touchdowns and converted both extra points. Three i or four yards at crack was the Texas1 piece in its first half offensive and it was good enough. Without picking up an inch in the air, tne Tex ans went 30 yards in eight plays for the first score, i .

Arizona gave Oregon a stiff argument for half game here Saturday but could not keep up the high-scor ing pace and fell, 39-21. in a non- conference game. Both teams scored three touchdowns in the first half. Then Arizona sagged, while Oregon sail- ed along at the touchdown pace. the touchdown. Texas jabbed 31 yards in 10 plays for the second score. Dawson crossed the goal line untouched, from the Purdue 3. f The rest of the way Texas spent most of the time on the defensive and looked more impressive in that phase of the game than it did on its scoring rushes. Purdue wound up with 262 yards from scrimmage to a Texas' 215, and 17 first downs to Texas' 10. But Purdue couldn't dent the Texas line for important short gains. The crowd of 31,000 saw Dale Samuels of Purdue , complete 12 passes for 114 yards. He hit his ends, particularly Bernard Flowers, with precision except when Texans got in the way. That was too often, four of his tosses were intercepted. The Samuels-Flowers comb Purduk, :V r: '' . vvv I At ? V r-- & 7 v . A r - v , ! - 'jl, , , j ' il i J i - " . -v " , ' homa City.
