Russo hurls Yankees to 2-1 victory over Dodgers Bombers come to lif e with 4 straight hits in eighth BY HARRY FERGUSON. NEW YORK. (UP). Marius Russo, a sad-eyed southpaw who has had a severe stomachache for a week, suddendly got well Saturday and pitched the New York Yankees to a brilliant 2 to 1 victory over the Brooklyn Dodgers in the third game of the world series. As Joe Gordon flipped the ball to Johnny Sturm for the last out in the game, Russo raced toward the clubhouse feeling like a million dollars. That can't be said for the 33,100 fans who are moving alowly out of Eb-beta Field as these words are written. They have a collective head ache, for moat of them are follow-era of the Beloved Bums and their heroes now are trailing In the se-riea two games to one. Torn paper la drifting blizzard white out of the atands and a five-piece band is playing a dlrga for the Dodgers. Narva-Wracking Gamt. It was a weird, nerve-wracking game. Almost everything' that could happen did, and even a note of authentic tragedy crept Into the proceedings. Thomas Daly, 60, of Forest Hilla, N. Y, died in section 12 of the grandstand during the tense early innings when neither team was able to ahova a run across. The story of the ball game Itself is that you can choke off the Yankee power hitters for a while, but eventually they will catch up and knock your bralna out Joa DiMaggio, who had gone hltless up until Saturday, got bis eyes trained on the sights and knocked in the first run of the game, in the eighth Inning. Fred Fitzslmmona, o I d e a t pitcher ever to start a world series game ao far aa record are available, waa tout of the game for Brooklyn when the Yankee-power Broke loose. The manner oi nia going was one of the strangest things ever seen. It happened In the aeventh inning. , Hit Above Knee. Joe Gordon was on second base with two out and Russo was at bat With the count two balls and one strike, Russo slashed a line drive at Fitzalmmons. It caught the Dodeer Ditcher on the left leg, lust above the knee, and bounced high into the air. Peewee Reese, Brooklyn shortstop, dashed over - .. A.

He waa taken to Ney Tork hospital for an X-ray exanWnation and it waa feared that bus kneecap might be fractured. When the Yankees canne to bat tn the eighth, Hugh Casey, the Dodgers demon relief pitcher, had taken Fltxaimmojfts place. He forced Johnny Sturp to fly out but then his trouble began. Red Rolfe ahot a) single to right center, and Toimy Henrich bounced one Into the same spot Rolfe stopped at j aecond and Joe DiMaggio. gripping his bat down near the handle And taking a wide stance, stood u-p to the plate aa tee SERIES) Page S-B.

Bible's eleven wins, 34 to 0 AUSTIN, Tex. UP). The orange wave of the University of Texas, which threaten to engulf six other members of the Southwest footfall conference, showed its vast power Saturday by rolling over a gallant Louisiana State eleven, 34-0, before 19,000 fans. Despite rain and mud, the steers, reaching deep into their reserve strength to conserve regulars, humbled the Tigers with a brilliant ground and air attack. Seven minutes after the kickoff bounding Pete Layden, Steer fullback, alternating with fleet Jack Craln, worked the ball from the LSU 40 to the seven and Layden dashed over. Malcolm Kutner blocked Gerald Hightower's punt to set up the initial Longhorn score. Steers All the Way. After that it was the Steers all the way, blocking, kicking, running and passing with precision. The Tigers never got inside the Texas 30. They made only three first downs to Texas' 14. The Steers piled up 268 yards by rushing compared with the Tigers' 19 and passed for 113 yards against 29 for LSU. Layden contributed a second marker and Crain tallied one before the reserves went in to add two more, one by Max Minor and another by Walton Roberts. FOB. - LRU McLeod .. Jimas .... Miller ....

It was the third time Marquette had defeated its state university rivals in 17 years of football rela tions and the Milwaukee team poured it on Saturday. , A touchdown in the second and third periods and two in the fourth overwhelmed the best efforts of Wisconsin, which scored only in the third period. Stidham presented a line rein forced by husky sophomores and Wisconsin was unable to penetrate or pass over it for sustained gains. Chief Gainer. Halfback Jimmy ' Richardson of Milwaukee was the chief ground gainer for Marquette, whose game is built around him, and his ad vances paved the way for touch downs by Halfbacks John Goodyear and Bob O'Hagen, Fullback Fred Rice and John Harrington. end.

Y.-Well this world series is so slow 1 wood not be serprised if they decided not to release the movie pictures It should of been the most exciting hair-raising free for all fracaa since Europe went wrong but I have seen more thrills in a neighborhood movie house travelogue. "Them Bums" mis oftener than Lou Nova. I never seen a team get so many opportoonities and meet them with a yawn.

Nebraska, whose surprise use of the vaunted "T" formation was temporarily postponed "rained out" reverted to the old fashioned but very reliable single wing to whizz past lown State, 14 to 0, Saturday. With sophomores and inexperienced hands filling the holes left vacant by graduation and national defense, Major Biff Jones' newest array of pupils performed hrilfinntly. No Cornhusker stood out above the rest. They all were good. True, Dale Bradley's high-chopping knee net ion saw him going Kansas slaps 19-6 loss on Washington Jayhawks win on muddy field LAWRENCE, Kas. UP). The air minded Kansas Jayhawkers, left the passing game to Washington university Saturday as they pushed thru the mud to defeat the Bears from St. Louis, 19 to 6, In a non-conference tilt. Ralph. Miller, the Jayhawks' No. 1 aerial artist, flipped few passes, but in running he starred with a four yard average on 14 attempts. The Bears, featuring Halfback Bud Schwenk, monopolized the murky air and moved into position for their touchdown by that route. He flipped short passes to Bill Hefelfinger and Clarence Turley to move to the Kansas 7 where Schwenk ran it over after three minutes of the opening period. Miller, who completed one pass out of four during the afternoon for a One yard gain, was on the receiving end late in the first period as he took Ray Niblo's heave in the flat, cut back behind his interference and covered the 49 yards to knot the count at 6-all. Short Punt Hurts. The Bears, thrown back to their own 1-yard line by a holding penalty in the fourth, attempted to kick out of trouble. Hefelfinger's boot went to Harlan Altman, substitute quarterback, who made a 25 yard return to the Washington 14. The Jayhawks lost four yards on two piaya ana men ruiioacK Ed Llnquist bulled thru to score from the 18. WJth about four minutes remaining in the -game, Dick Devine fumbled In attempting to crash the line and Niblo pounced on it for Kansas on the Bear 16.

After olAJDtx went down the Brooklyns sunk' by the head like a merchantman in a mine field. They used so many pitchers I thought maybe it was a federal census of men with weak arms. Russo pitched a great game for the Yanks. He is a Brooklyn boy who made good for Manhattan and the Bronx. -Nothing makes Brooklyn so soar today as that Russo's number don't come up In the draft sooner. What has happened to Camllli. He looks to me like the world's oustandlng example of a arms and munitions shortage. I still think it is not Camilll at an and that Marshall Petain must be subbing for him. He looks like he was col laborating with the enemy. What a series. No riots, no as saults, no fine. And only a few mild cues of hysterics. If it don't get better than this we may have L5iir six victory over the double chalk line for both scores, but Nebraska had more than Bradley. Making their own break by blocking an Iowa State punt midway in the first period, the Corn-huskera went on like the Cornhuskers of old. A 15 yard penalty and some superb blocking and running hung up a big seven points for the only score of first half. Score More. After the Intermission, the first stringers came bounding back. Thwarted for a few brief minutes, again they opened up their offensive machinery and on one of the slickest plays In the Husker repe-toire, the second score was manufactured. But that doesn't tell the valiant figTit put up by Iowa State, nor the individual smartness of the Huskers with their Big Six championship title and their Rose Bowl reputation to uphold. The Huskers received the kick-off and immediately based their attack on the "T" formation, which spelled Stanford's success against them in the Rose Bowl. But the "T" was unRuccMHfui - It wasn't the fault of Sophomore Marvin Athey, playing hia first game; nor the Viscount Francis, nor the Bombing Allen Zikmund; nor the Bradley you are destined to hear so much about In the fu ture. Ball Too Wet. No. The ball was too wet. It could be handled.. But not as successful as Major-Jones, Roy "Link" Lyman, Glenn Presnell and Paul Amen desired. So right there and then the style of attack, which Coach Ray Donels of Iowa State had "smelled" but didn't know if his senlea were correct, was scrapped. Nebraska, failing to make euf-kicked yar?age for a flrst down Iowa State took over and the merry crowd of some 15,000, cut down because of the uncertain weather, roared because the Cyclones took off with all that their nickname implies. Paul Darling, who has made Iowa State backers take his name literally, chewed up 10 big yards. uy Seaburf te up some more. This was all going on thru the Ine-the Husker line that waa looked to be nearly Invincible on paper. What to Do? There was Iewa State, second " una a yaras to go on the Husker 48-yard line. kicked1 d0? ThCy qU,Ck" Rangy Fred Preston, Nebraska's defensive ace, whipped In from his end position, placed hia long body in the direction of Darling's boot and smeared the ball. Herb von Goets, gaining his first starting opportunity, fell on the loose, slippery pigskin. It was from this point that Nebraska "poured" "T" or no "T." A 15 yard penalty for roughing "Dale Bradley gave Nebraska a first down on the Cyclone 88-yard stripe. Francis, the ever-dependable plunger, piled up the Cyclones for a five yard advance, Zikmund, Just as slippery as the ball, waa good for two yards on a reverse. At this point Bradley came up See HUSKERS, Page 5-B. to go back to the war news for excitement What's wrong with the man-agers of both teams? Neither one had made a radio broadcast saying the outcome of thia figtft wijl decide the fate of Brooklyn and the Bronx for the next 100 years..
