JEFFERSON CITY, MO., SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22, T936 Notre Dame THE SUNDAY NEWS AND TRIBUNE ighty Northwestern ^^ 12,000 Spectators See TiserDefea^W^iington to Become Punting Duel Is a Feature of Hot Fight Washington Pointed Way in Scoring to Finally Fall Before Tiger Attack COLUMBIA, Mo., Npv. 21.-(AP)--The University of Missouri Tigers today won the state football championship by defeating Washington university 17 to 10 before 12,000 spectators. The first: quarter featured a punting duel between Frye of Missouri and Brungard and Londy of Washington. It was up to Washington to point the way iri the scoring; Bukant entered .the game for the Bears and something added to the punting Bukant limbered up his passing arm, tossing a long pass to Hudgens on the Tigers' 22. Then Londy, shifted-from a guard position to quarterback, placekicked from 25 yards out for the first 3 points. Bukant, 200-pound fullback, sized up the situation and commenced a long drive. He ripped through the Missouri forwards for long gains and Yore took up where he left off at the Tigers' 20 and carried the ball to the 8. The march that apparently would not be stopped until pay dirt was reached, ended abruptly when Mason, Tiger fullback, intercepted Bukant's toss and raced 64 yards before he was tackled. Theme Changes The theme of the drama had changed. It was Missouri and not Washington. The actors 'had changed, too, for it. was not Joe Bukant. in the limelight. Jack Frye, ace Tiger quarterback, stole the scene long enough to account for two touchdowns. It was Frye, who lateralled to Mason for 14 yards,.and for a brief intermission during which Mahley galloped 14 yards around left end, Frye knifed the Bears' line and finally plunged over for the touchdown from the 1-foot line. He kicked the extra point and Mis- .souri surged to the front, 'I to 3. ;· But the show was" not over. '~ ', A delicately placed punt that ; went,out of bounds on Washington's 5-yard stripe, started the Tigers on their second touchdown march. Brungard punted back to his 35 and Frye tossed two passes, the last of which was gathered in by Dickenson, Missouri end, as he rambled behind the goal .line. It was Frye who placekicked the extra point, keeping his average at 1.000 per cent in this department. Last week against Oklahoma he converted three points in three tries. Washington came back in the second half, determined to win the ball game, smothering Frye whenever he attempted to pass and twice throwing him. for heavy losses when pass receivers were not in the open. Fumble Costly But a fumble on their own 30- yard marker was a costly error. Frye netted 10 yards on a run, and a short gain by Mason added to a penalty against the Bears, placed the ball in position for Frye's / placekick. Standing on toe 25, he | lifted the leather oval up between " the uprights and Missouri's 17 points were in. Bukant's bullet passes which filled the air in the last chapter, accounted for the Bears' lone touchdown when the game had less than two minutes to run. Deserting the turf entirely, Bukant passed four times without a hitch, the last one taking off from the 10 yard line and landing in the hands of Minkey behind the goal. Londy whose toe so accurately guided the ball for the Bears' field goal, repeated for the extra point. Mondala, giant Tiger substitute fullback, reeled off 16 yards through center and apparently was oft lor a touchdown when, he was dragged down and the game ended.

Fades Into Thin Air · LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 21--(AP) --The Nebraska football volcano which sputtered and fumed harmlessly against Pittsburgh a week ago erupted with devastating fury today to smother the Big Six title dreams of Kansas State. The score was Nebraska 40, Kansas State 0, leaving the Huskers with a new conference scoring record of 134 points against none for opponents. · A victory today would have given Kansas State a title tie, but after the Huskers had slashed their . way to a touchdown less than six minutes after the start, the 27,000 fans banking the field knew a repetition of the surprising 1934 Kansas State victory was not to be. Stymie Thrusts Taking advantage of numerous breaks, stymieing all counter thrusts when danger neared, the Huskers rolled over three more touchdowns in the second period, went scoreless in the third, and turned in two more in the final, one on a freak play with a basketball tinge. While all this was going on Big Maurice "Red" Elder, Howard Cleveland, and Bob Douglass, Cine Kansas State backs, were churning up and down the field for 241 yards from scrimmage, 31 more than the Huskers registered, but their efforts either were shattered against the big red wall when Sainls Go Down to Defeat When MMA Wins 20-7 Dotne Fortune Hands Almost All Colonels Breaks to St. Peter's high school Saints wont down to their fifth defeat of the season yesterday afternoon at Mexico, bowing to the Missouri Military Academy Colonels by a 20-7 score. Dame Fortune once more refused to smile on the Saints, handing practically all the breaks to the Colonels. In fact, M. M. A. counted all of their touchdowns as a result of breaks. In the opening quarter, Mexico counted their initial touchdown shortly after they had recovered a Saint fumble on the St. Peter's ten yard stripe. Hardly had the second canto opened when an intercepted pass gave the Colonels another touchdown. The score at half time was 13-0 in Mexico's favor. The third quarter failed to produce a score for either team, but in the final period both aggregations counted a touchdown and an extra point. Bill Sweeney, sparkplug of the Saint attack; again counted the lone Saint touchdown, galloping around end for the final thirty yards. Hemmell went off tackle for the extra point. McKay and Webb, Mexico halfback and quarterback, respectively, were the bright stars in the Colonel · attack, while Bill Kleene played a hangup game at end for the Saints. In the final quarter, Kleene snared a forty yard pass from Hemmell and raced an additional ten yards before he was brought down. M. M. A. Pos.s. Butler Blanch ard Chambers Combert . Kuppert . E.

Francis went over from the one- yard line to climax a march from the Husker 36. A prodigious punt by Sam Francis, ace Nebraska fullback, cleared the path for the second counter. With a slight tail wind Frances booted the ball 7 yards to the Kansas State nine-yard line. Cleveland tried to pick up the ball, fumbled and John Richardson recovered for the Huskers. From the six-yard line Ron Douglas skimmed right end for the touchdown. Midway in the second period Francis punted outside "on the Kansas State four, and Leo Ayers' return punt went outside on the Wildcats' 30.

The class of 1911 will hold its silver anniversary reunion as part of the festivities, with Orville Zimmerman, president of the class, scheduled to address his former classmates. Former Stars to Attend Frank B. Thachcr, of Bill Roper's famous Tiger team, will attend the reunion.

Bewildered by Breaks Kansas State, fighting furiously, but bewildered by the succession of breaks and the Huskers' ability to capitalize on them, came back in the second half to halt a long Husker march in the shadow of the Wildcats 1 goal, then stage a whooping counter offensive, with Elder and Cleveland going great guns. The Kansas Staters advanced to the Husker 26. When Elder ended a 10-yard surge with a twisted knee, and with his removal the attack sputtered and died after reaching the Husker seven. Howell intercepted a pass on the two- yard line and the lone serious threat had vanished. under-rated and much-kicked around Georgia team to shatter Fordham's rosiest dream in football history by holding the renowned Rams, their "seven blocks of granite" and all, to a 7 to 7 ti before an amazed throng of 35,000 spectators at the Polo grounds.

'Razzle Dazzle' and PoweMrYins for Ohio COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 21--(AP) --Ohio State combined power and "razzle-dazzle" today to defeat Michigan's Wolvrines 21 to o, giving the Bucks a second place tie in the Western conference race m which they tied for the title with Minnesota a year ago. The victory was Ohio's fifth in eight starts this year, and the defeat was Michigan's seventh in eight attempts. Only a victory over Columbia kept the Wolverine season from being a total los« cloest rival in the matter of long distance hitting, rallied from a three hole deficit through the 14th m the morning round to eliminate husky Craig Wood of Deal, N. J., 4 and 3, while Shute, having stretches of hot and cold golf, came from behind after being two down at the 31st to vanquish "Wild Bill" Mehlhorn, the 33- year-old Louisville veteran, one up on the 36th green. Thus the 36-hole match for the title tomorrow will be between a hitter and a fellow who is hard to match on short shots and putting. Thomson clearly earned his victory todfiy over Wood, but he was helped no little by the Jersey Giant's collapse after the 14th hole when he was leading three up. Wood went to lunch one up. Craig look three putts from 35 feet to lose the 19th with a bogey 5 and after the 20th was halved, Jimmy fired birdies at Craig just as the latter had done in the morning. Both sank putts from about ten feet to halve the 334- yard 21st in 3s and then Jimmy snared birdie 4s on the next two and shot pars on the 24th and 25th lo become four up ;is Craig froze up on his approaches, taking a six at the par four 25th. Jimmy was out in 35 to 40 for Wood. There wasn't much to the final nine, or, to be exact, the last six holes. The first three wei-a halved in par, Thomson driving 340 yards at the 29th and then missing a fairly short putt for a birdie 3. Craig hooked his drive into the rough behind a hummock- played a safety shot and lost the 31st. And that was the ball game as they halved the next two. Putter Betrays Him The new pendulum putter that was Mehlhorn's most reliable weapon m previous rounds betrayed him repeatedly and he was one down to Shute after the fir-t nine when he easily might have been one up. It let him down on the second nine, where he also missed the green on three approaches, a n d - stood three down at the end of the morning round carding a 77 to Shute's 73. Bill's putter behaved on the third nine, and taking only 1" putts, he went out in 34, two under par, to lead one up, as Shute faltered on the g reens . Denny approached short at the 32nd and Mehlhorn now was two up. Ravens Finish Undefeated 21.- rcompleted Has., Nov.

They lamed, beal and caged the mighty Wildcats of Northwestern by the astonishing score of 26 to 6. Notre Dame, paying brilliant mechanical as well as inspired football, astonished a capacity crowd of 5G,000 thrilled spectators by whipping the champions of the Western conference in one of the biggest upsets of the season. The pop-eyed spectators left the Notre Dame stadium wondering which was now the ranking No. 1 football team t.f the nation. They knew it was no longer Northwestern. Take Every Advantage Notre Dame took advantage of every opportunity to outmaneuver the fagged out, hitherto unbeaten Wildcats to pile up their victory. The size of the score just about indicates the difference between the two teams. It is true thul Notre Dame practically was handed three touchdowns in glaring misplays and fumbles, but it was the vicious tackling of the fighting Irish, their terrific blocking and faultless execution of plays that won the game In their most impressive victory of the year. Four touchdowns were scored by Notre Dame, one in each period, before the, badly whipped wildcats found themselves long enough to stage a 77 yard march in the fourth to register their only score. From start to finish, except for a few minutes in the closing period when Notre Dame had a lead of 2G lo 0, the Irish outplayed Northwestern, and wiped out that stunning upset of a year ago, when the Wildcats handed them their only defeat of Lhe 1935 season. The hero of Notre Dame's triumph was' a 21 year old youngster, Bob Wilke, of Hamilton, Ohio, ploying left halfback. In the first period, Wilke bounced away on a 30 yard dash that gave Notre Dame its first score, and in the second he got away on an even more dazzling run, this one for 34 yards for the second touchdown. Caught Napping In the third it was Wilke's quick kick which caught Northwestern napping and led to the most disastrous fumble of the afternoon. Wilke's quick punt sailed far over the head of Don Heap, flashy Northwestern halfback. For an instant he stood wondering what to do, then he tried to retrieve the bouncing ball, barely touched it, when Joe O'Neill came tearing along to recover it for Notre Dame on Northwestern's 3. After one smash failed, Larry Danbom, Notre Dame fullback, crashed over for the touchdown, that increased Notre Dame's lead to 10 points. In the fourth, McCarthy hurled another pass to Skoghmd who grabbed it on Northwcslcrn's 14. The Irish blasted tho line going to the Wildcats' six and then McCarthy shot a shovel pass t^ Skoglund who dragged himself over the goal line pulling frenzied Morlhweslern tacklers along with him.
