(IP) An alert Army team, trained to the ; minute mentally and physically, Hopped Notre Dame la ita tracks ' today to win an exciting but none too well played football game 18 to 0. , ,The fighting team from South , Bend never Quit fighting but it never had a chance. The Army , was la command of the situation thruout The soldiers outguessed the civilians and outattacked them. . Notre Dame's tackling did not do a bit of good and its defensive tac- tics at times was badly run down at the heel -Notre Dame gained an edge In earned first downs with twelve to ' eight, but five qf the losers' were made in the final quarter when Notre Dame unleashed a dazzling forward passing attack, interesting but not conclusive since it came too late to help In the desperate situation In which Knute Rockne and his men had been placed by previous developments. Keener Cagle, who comes from the sugar bowl of Louisiana and , proved himself as sweet a football player as his environment would suggest, started the Army on its way by scoring the first touchdown and heaped on the last for good measure after Billy Wave had injected one In between. Cagle Sets Army Off. Cagle, who did his under graduate football work at Southwestern Louisiana before going In for post graduate work at the United . States military academy, gave the cadets their first chance for the long cheer soon after hostilities opened. The ball was on Notre Dame's 49-yard line when the Mer--ryvllle lad ran back and gave every ' indication that he was about to toss a forward pass to Born, an end, who was legging It .down the Held. Cagle, however, chose to run Instead of throw and he then slipped away from two Notre Dame players who were almost In his path and was on his way. He did not stop until the goal line was behind him. In the third period, Nave, intercepted a forward pass on his 48-yard line and ran the fifty-four yards between his catch and a .touchdown. In the final quarter, , Cagle engineered the third counter. The ball was on Notre Dame's 31-yard line when Hutchinson " threw a pass which was Just over Cagle's head as he passed the 15- yard line. He reached up, plucked It out of the air and in a matter of seconds ran the army's total to eighteen. It was not a good day for adding points after touchdowns by the medium rof kicks. Murrel, Cagle and Sprague all tried and i alleaVKotre Dame had Its first chance to score ' In the second period when the ball u3m:.aat0!rAny,t.;l(Kyar41--.linfrJ. . chiefly thru a twenty-four yard pass, Flanagan to Colerlck.

The game ended with the ball on the Army's kyard line placed there In large measure by Colerlck's catching passes, one being good for twenty-nine yards. The Army rushed the ball 201 yards against 147 gained from rush-by Notre Dame. Army threw twelve passes and completed one. Notre Dame tossed thirty-four passes, completing ten, while army intercepted five and the others were grounded Notre Dame gained 131 yards from Its passes and Army 81 for a touchdown. Notre Dame was nicked for fifty-five yards In penalties while the Army had to pay twenty-five yards. A majority of the yardage taken away from Notre Dame was charged to Incompleted passea at five yards a failure. The Uenup and summary: Notre Deme , 'Arm Harlburt 1.

Seventh Straight for Browne Crew v (Contlnaed from Pag S-A.) clever assortment of line drives and end runs. A pair of flips by Art Perry featured the march down the field in the second quarter, Dutch Koster taking one for a 22-yard gain and Ding Boulter pulling In the other for an advancement of thlrtyfive yards. Lincoln's big push, as has been tbe ease In most of this year's games, came In the last half, the twenty point margin at the Inter mission being boosted oy tmrty- nine counters in the two final can tos. John Stone scored his third touchdown of the afternoon early in the third quarter when a drive featured by his line rushes carried the ball to the 4-yard marker, from where be smashed center for the score. The reserve linemen were opening up wide holes which made Stone's gains possible, , Interference Running Perfect. A perfect Job of interference running: enabled Harry Wuelser to swing around the Invaders' left wing for the second touchdown in this quarter, not a tackier coming close to laying a hand on Wuelser during his scoring dash of thirty yards. The' Lincoln regulars again en tered the fracas after a few, plays in the fourth quarter and their ability to take full advantage of every opening gave them four mora touchdowns before the. final gun. Karl Tlndall banged thru the line for the first of this series of the scores after Boulter and Perry had each contributed long runs. Harold Schmltt, who came in for a full afternoon's work as be played with both the reserve and regular lineups, got credit for his second touchdown of the season a few plays later when he Intercepted one of Stansberry's forward passes and galloped twenty yards over the goal line. - Boulter In Flashy Return. , The last two touchdowns came in the final four minutes of play, Bob Suter taking a pass from Perry to run untouched for the first marker. The pass and run together netted thirty-seven yards. Quarterback Boulter finished oft the scoring when he caught-Stansberry's punt on the 35-yard line and ran it back to a touchdown. It was his foifrth touchdown this year as the result of running back Punts. , - No individual player stood out in the Lincoln lineup, the Brownies shaping up as one of the best balanced outfits ever to represent the Red and Black on the gridiron.

Rose sought to gain a touchdown with a fotward pass over left end. Grimm, Hawkeye end, snatching the ball, raced down the side lines tor ninety-five yards and a touchdown. Olassgow once more added the desired one point with a placeklck. In gains from scrimmage, the Iowa backs showed themselves superior, garnering 141 yards, principally on the eighty-six yards Armll corraled and the thirty-seven yards Glass-gow added. Wisconsin piled up 120 yards on rushes. Badgers Make Threat In the third period, Wisconsin made its greatest threat when a punt by Rebhols was downed by the Badgers on the Iowa 2-yard line after the Hawks' safety man had touched it. Attempts by Reb liolr and Rose at the line resulted In losses, however, and the latter's altemptedforward pass to Crofoot juggled out of the-- latter's hauds over the goal line. Armll was given excellent help bv his forwards in nis aasnes tnru the line and the entire Hawkeye back fitted in well with the Interference on end plays. ' On many occasions, the Wisconsin line rose to Its expected heights and stopped the Iowans' advance, forcing a kick, but there was not the consistency in their play that marked their stellar performance against the powerful Minnesota team two weeka ago. 800 re by periods: Wisconsin S 0 lowa 9 t 7-H Iowa scoring: Touchdowns Armll, Grlruni (substitute for Moore).

Coach Pierce'i Aggregation Only Obstacle in Way of ,ed and . Black's Claim to the ..- State Title;' By Floyd Olds. With seven badly crushed victims dangling from Its victory belt, the apparently unstoppable Lincoln high grid machine will climax the regular schedule this week in a Saturday afternoon argument with the team that ruined a perfect season last fall, Coach Pierce's undefeated Grand Island outfit. Seven straight rivals have gone down toA battered defeat before the terrific onslaught , of the Brownies this year, and only the Third City crew stands in tbe way of s perfect season. The Grand Island tilt will close the Lincoln schedule, no Thanksgiving day battle having been scheduled. While Lincoln has been mowing down the opposition, Grand Island likewise has been having a big year, no opponent being able- to win or even so much as put a score against them, altho Fremont and Omaha Tech each battled Coach Pierce's eleven to a scoreless deadlock. Brownies Out for Revenge. When the capital 'city power house goes into the Grand 'Island struggle at the Lincoln high oval Saturday afternoon, vivid memories of the 1926 battle between the two schools will be In the mtada of the revenge seeking Browniel. While Lincoln was suffering a mental and physical let Up follow ing a triumph over Toledo last fall, the Grand Island eleven took advantage of its golden opportunity and handed the Red and Black a 5 to 0 licking, the only set bade for Coach W. H. Browne in six years at Lincoln high from any team outside of Omaha. A large percent of the Lincoln team that was the victim of Grand Island last fall Is lost from the squad now, but Austin, Kostes, Su ter, Packer and Tlndall ot last year's squad will be getting a chance for revenge while the re mainder ot the team Is keyed up for the tilt to settle the year old score with Orand Island. Grand Island Not Easy. And while Lincoln has been looking to the Saturday affair with ideas -of revenge, the Grand Island outfit has been pointing to this struggle thru the entire sesson. With Glenn Moore and Tom Phe lan, who were largely responsible for the upset last year, back In the lineup, they have another powerful machine that has the snap and fire to aeain startle tbe state with an upset if the Brownies fail to play heads up ball during a single moment of the Saturday clash. North Platte, undeteated western leader lost all hopes of disputing Lincoln's bid to state honors Saturday by battling Omaha Tech, one of Lincoln's victims, to a scoreless tie. Coach McCandless' eleven has had a Wonderful season and If they polish off Lexington and Curtis Aggies in their remaining games, will go" down lh the records as one of the great teams of the year. They meot-Jxlngton., at the latter's camo SatiirOarr " " ' ' '" While the majority of attention thla week will be cast on the Grand Island-Lincoln batlle.'a string . of imDortant arguments over the state will bear considerable watching. The traditional Omaha struggle between Tech and Central is bound to be a fierce affair' altho Tech appears much the stronger. South and North will tangle in another Omaha city game.

' Not many seasons ago Nebraska had' an end who was a fair performer, but in addition was one ot the world's champion allblers. . In a rather tough game, he was sent inlong toward the end of the second quarter with a big- sophomore tackle who played on the same side ot the line and weighed about 220 pounds all ready ior the swim. The third play was shot at this particular end. When it reached the line of scrimmage there was no stopping In fact, a back did mighty well to smear it up. Simultaneously with the completion of the play, another end came tearing onto the field. Aa the outgoing wing man neared the bench, the coach called sharply to him and shouted, : "Where in the name of blue mud were you on that play t" "Well, you see," came the reply, "I was starting to pull out wide as soon as they lined up, but that big ox tackle you had In there was standing on my foot, and I couldn't get away." Long Runs Enable Pitt to Win 21 to 13 (Continued from Fag S-A.) back suffered in the march. With Presnell in position for what appeared to be a line smash Howell took the ball and drove the neces sary three yards for the counter. it being a neat fake play. McMullen's attempt at a place-kick was wide. The Huskers needed a touch- kdown and field goal to win or tie after that. Witte Starts Pass Attack. The fact apparently was a tonic for tbe Panthers for they battled to a draw until Wltte and Captain Brown were sent In with more than half the fourth quarter gone. Starting from its 35-yard line, Ne braska began showering passes. Mixing up their rushing and passing, Nebraska worked the ball to Pitts' 20-yard line in two minutes, which meant gaining sixty yards in nve plays, me most spectacular pass of the bunch was incomplete, Wltte threw a long one to Captain Brown, who barely got his hands on it. lie managed to keep It In the air until wo Pitt men bore down on him and between the three they kept punching the ball like a punching bag. it finally fell without uny ot the trio being able to catch it. If Brown could have caught .It cleanly, an almost impossible thing, as it was too high, he would have probably gone to a touchdown as he was nil alone at that time.- The next play found Witte shoot ing a pass to Ashburn which was good for thirty-one yards. Then came a twelve yard flip to Farley. Farley hit the line for two yards as the game ended. Aside from his work in the open field, CapUin Welch waa not effective thru the line. It was Presnell and Howell who brought to the Pitt stands a real glimpse of offensive power. Huskers Never Give Up. "If we had played the way we did today, against Washington-Jefferson, we would have won by four or five touchdowns," one Pitt follower declared. The game today recalled the last Thanksgiving day tilt with Washington .at Seattle. Altho beaten Cornhusker followers could file out with the knowledge that the Nebraskans had performed In traditional style, refusing to give It up until the final gun sent the two elevens off the field. Bsarg Praises Pitt Eleven. "Pitt had the best team we have met In three years. It's no disgrace to be beaten by an eleven like the Panthers put on the field today," Coach Bearg stated after the game. ' 1 There was considerable com ment among the Husker players about the forward pass play upon which Welch ran slxt six yards to a touchdown. Presnell waa in a position to tackle or bump Welch but he saw the Pitt captain was out of bounds and feared the fifteen-yard penalty .for tackling . out of bounds, Frank Birch, umpire, explained Captain Welch's run on the nrst Itlckoff. The Huskers set the ball in the middle of the field but just before Richards kicked Bronson moved it over to one side. "In an effort to catch Pitt oft balance I think the move unbalanced Nebraska," he stated. , In Hagan and Welch, Pitt has two halfbacks who are among the best backs Nebraska has ever faced. In rushing and passing Nebraska made twelve first downs to seven for Pitt. Nebraska's total Includes one thru a penalty. Lineup and summary: Pittsburgh Nebraska. Donches ...Is Lee Kern U. .......
