WV-Virginia's power-packed Cavaliers, moving irresistibly on the ground and capitalizing on every break they got, flattened the scrappy George Washington University Colonials, 33-13 here this afternoon before a frigid opening dav gathering of 15,000 customers It was the first time Virginia and ' Georee Washington had met in a quarter of a century, and as far as the Colonials were concerned, once was too often. The Cavaliers tallied the very first time they got their hands on the ball, Bruce Bailey slithering across from the two-yard ribbon seven minutes after the game started Grover Jones galloped over for a second Virginia score and Biiiy Pennel went 62 yards for the third before Intermission, Papit, Grimes Scor Freshman flash John Papit and an old reliable, George Grimes, went over for the Cavaliers' second half counters. John Mazero. a sub halfback who was r top-notch for the Colo' nials all afternoon, pitched a strike to halfback Jim Kiline for the first Colonial score in the second stanza and Charlie Butler tossed one to end Frank Close for the second GW tally with a half minute to go in the ball game. ' The Cavaliers, principally because cf the failure' of their ends to hold cn to the leather, completed only three out of 14 passes attempted, put made up for this lack with a smashing ground game which rolled up 314 yards against the highly-regarded Colonial line. Leading the assault were such tried and true characters as Bailey, fullback Grover Jones, Billy Pennel, and George Grimes, whose , booming punts got the Virginians out of several bad holes. George Washington, with Mazero doing the pitching, completed six cf 21 forward passes for 122 yards and actually out-first-downed Virginia, 13 to 10. But the Cavaliers Intercepted four of the Colonial tosses to end budding threats and two of these misfires in the last quarter led directly to Virginia touchdowns. rot: Geo. Wash.

Vandy Surprises Northwestern, 3-0 EVANSTON, 111., Sept. 27.-HP)- Vanderbilts scrappy Commodores ruined the debut of 31-year-old Bob Voights as Northwestern's football coach today by scoring an upset 3 to 0 victory in the final four minutes before a crushed crowd of 42,000. Zack Clinard, a reserve quarter back, booted a 13-yard field goal from placement to give the Southerners their spectacular triumph They outrushed, outscored and out- passed Northwestern's Wildcats far worse than the statistics indicated Northwestern, making six costly fumbles, and playing a ragged game on the ground and in the air, never advanced beyond Vanderbilt's 33-yard line, although the "Cats" ripped to the 34-yard stripe inl the closing seconds, only to lose the ball on a pass Interception.

(JP'i Ohio State's Bucks, stopped by Missouri for two periods, came from behind In the last three minutes today to snatch a 13 to 7 victory for their Bew coach, Wesley E. Fesler. and maintain their record of never losing an opener to a collegiate foe. A crowd of 59,444 watched the Bucks stage touchdown marches of 75 and 84 yards, with Fullback Joe Whisler, 220-pound Junior from Wll-lard, O., going over for the two markers. In between those Ohio onslaughts the Tigers paraded 76 yards to send iub-fullback Ed Quirk of St. Louis over from the five for the score which gave Missouri a 7-6 lead that tt retained until two minutes and forty seconds before the finish. Although Whisler scored the touchdowns, it was Alex Verdova, Substitute right halfback, who carried the Bucks practically single-handed to the winning score. His first run, a stuttering, whirl-teg' trip around end, was good for IT yards. Whisler went for five, and thm Verdova drove over tackle for another 14 yards. That put the ball an the 7. and the Bucks made it in I mere plays. i Day's Events Prove Costly To Georgia, Villanova, Tennessee, Other Teams By HAROLD CLASSEN NEW YORK, Sept. 27 P) A year ago everyone was humming and singing "what a difference a day makes" but tonight it was murmured as a dirge in such college football camps as Georgia, Villa-nova, Washington, Northwestern, Tennessee, Iowa State and Michigan State. Only 24 hours ago those teams were looking hopefully forward to unbeaten seasons. Instead, each was defeated today in one of the mcst thrill-packed September Saturdays. But those , same words we?e just the did refrain at many colleges, including Army. The cadets, minus Blanchard, Davis and Tucker, proudly marched past Villanova, 13 to 0, in a struggle that lured 28,000 spectators to West Point for a glimpse at the refurbished Army PRO FOOTBALL TO HIT FULL STRIDE TODAY NEW YORK, Sept. 27 (P) Professional football moves into high gear tomorrow ' when the National League's 28th season, only a week and one game old, swings into full stride and the All-America Conference reaches the end of the first month in Its second championship race. The first big Sunday pf the year in the senior circuit will find the Chicago Bears opening the de fense of their NFL championship on the home field of the Queen Bay Packers, the Washington Redskins invading Philadelphia to take on the Eagles and the Detroit Lions visiting the gridiron of the dangerous Chicago Cardinals. Two more National League games are scheduled Monday night when the New York Giants, Eastern Di vision titlists, open against the Yanks at Boston and the Pittsburg Steelers, who downed Detroit, 17-10 in the only league game to date, entertained the Los Angeles Rams. "" In the Ail-American conference, tomorrow's schedule sends the New York Yankees and Buffalo Bills, who share the lead In the eastern division with three wins In four starts, against powerful foes. New York invades the territory of the Baltimore Colts and Buffalo will be home to meet the San Francisco '49ers, the runner-up outfit In the western division. Cleveland's defending champion Browns, only team still unbeaten in the Ail-American Conference race, chalked up their fourth straight triumph last night, a 41-21 decision over the Chicago Rockets. Records of tomorrow's opponents in the National League show that Washington leads Philadelphia in previous meetings, 14 to 3 with one game tied, Detroit leads the Cardinals, 17 to 4 with three ties, and the Bears lead Green Bay, 81 to 21 with five ties. o Dividing and replanting Iris piaras m August uupiutra mo i display of blooms in the following 1 yeaJ- California's Bruins Ruin Navy's Hopes For Undefeated Season With 14-7 Upset BERKELEY, Calif., Sept. 27.-W) California's hard-hitting Bears turned in one of the smashing early season football upsets today by defeating Navy 14-7 before a sell-out crowd of nearly 80,000 fans. The Bears, making a gridiron comeback under the coaching of Lynn Walorf, rushed over a second period touchdown on a pass and two smart runs to assume the lead they maintained to the end. They added to the advantage with a 64-yard run to a touchdown in the fourth quarter apparently to clinch the victory in resounding fashion only to have the hard-fighting Midshipmen make it a ball game with a score of their own. The last four minutes provided thrills. Navy's boys, fighting to the last, blocked a punt, recovered the ball and cracked over the California goal to trail 14-7. With less than three minutes to go. Navy made a last desperate try. Forced to kick off, they successfully completed an on-side kick. Center Dick Scott fell on the ball, and the Middies hit the aerial lanes 1m-media teyj FARLEY'S 18 S.

The words also were being sung joyously at Chapel Hill after North Carolina bounced Georgia, 14 to 7. to reverse the decision these same two schools registered on Jan. 1 In the Sugar Bowl. Pupa, Not Justice It was Walt Pupa's passing and not the expected running of Charles Justice that brought the downfall of the Georgians, who scored first and then saw their advantage melt away. Washington threatened often at Minneapolis, but scored only once and then missed the extra point as Minnesota eked out a 7 to 6 inter-sectional decision in the rain. Northwestern, playing Its first game under 31year old Head Coach Bob Voigts, tumbled before Vanderbilt, 3 to 0, on a final period field goal. Illinois, defending Big Nine king, had plenty of difficulty with Pittsburgh, 14 to 0, while Michigan, expected to inherit the mantle, walloped Michigan State, 5 to 0, in Biggie Munn's first game as Spartan coach. Anxious Minutes Ohio State, also operating under a new tutor, had more anxious moments than it expected with Missouri before triumphing, 13 to 7. The Buckeyes' experience was shared by Duke, which scared after a blocked kick to defeat North Caro-lint State, 7 to 0. The biggest surprise of the day was the apparent ease with which Bobby Dodds' Georgia Tech eleven engineered a 27 to 0 defeat for Tennessee, where he starred a score of years ago. In another tutor-pupil affair, the teacher won out as Harvard, under Dick Harlow, massacred Western Maryland, 52 to 0. Yale found Kings Point relatively stubborn, 34-13 and Columbia had a stage a furious rally to edge out Rutgers, 40 to 28 after the New Yorkers had counted 21 points In the first period Holy Cross, which began football practice by studying time-tables to the various bowl towns, was held scoreless by Dartmouth, 0 to 0.

JPh-Tough, inspired North Texas State College gave the University of Arkansas' Razorbacks a full afternoon of trouble here today, but bowed before the Southwest Conference Co-Champions, 12 to 0. Arkansas' speed -demon backs, Clyde Scott and Aubrey Fowler, provided the victory punch, Scott scoring on an 11-yard end run In the first quartei and Fowler racing 75 yards on a punt return for the other touchdown in the third period.

W) Vir ginia Military Instnute unveiled its T formation today before approximately 4,000 fans at Alumni Field and what Coach Arthur (Slick) Morton showed in his debut was enough to give the Keydets a 13 to 6 victory over Catawba's Indians, despite the lack of an expected wide-open passing game. The Keydets threw only rour passes during the 1947 opener and their all around attacK was con siderably hampered ;when Bobby Thomason, one of the South's bet ter tossers, left the game midway In the second quarter with an ankle Injury. But on the ground, the Keyaeis gained at will, although they were able to ignite for touchdowns oniy in the second and third periods. They had a net rushing gain of 198 yards. Catawba, with a streak or navuag scored in 67 games about to be snapped, scored its lone six-pointer with only two minutes remaining In the ball game. Harold Bowen, tailback, passed to Craver for ten yards and the Indians' score. Dor-ton's attempted placement was wide. Keep Record Intact Held to a minus six yards via rushing, the Indians came back riding the air lanes In the closing minutes to keep intact , their scoring record which started back in 1939. Hutchinson fumbled for VMI on the Keydet 36. Six passes later, including two of the Incomplete variety, the Indians had hit the end zone, Bowen to Craver. ( " The Indians had thrown a scare Into the VMI team in the waning minutes of the second quarter. They reached the seven-yard line that time, but four plays later, they had lost 24 yards, thanks to great defensive play by end Jimmy Gill, Ragunas and Captain Chi Mills, who played his heartout at the tackle spot. With that threat' over, the In dians were never near the goal line until they staged their flurry of passes which resulted - in ''the -late score. fog. Catawba Va. Mil.

Tulane's other two scores which came in the last 53 seconds of the first half were on JEd Price's 101 r yard kickoff return and a 38 yard pass play from Bennie Ellender to Ray Prats.

Less-Powerful Army Defeats Villanova, 13-0 WEST POINT, N. Y., Sept. 27 JP) Army's green football team carried on the winning ways 01 its departed All - American backs, Glenn Davis and Felix Blanchard, by downing Villanova 13 to 0 today.

Arnold Tucker. They performed creditably but Army did not look like Its championship teams of yesteryear. Recovered fumbles set tne stage for both of army's touchdowns. Gustafson fell on a Villanova bobble, on the Wildcats' 14 near the end of the first half and darted all the way to the - goal line . on.-tne next play. Midway in the third penoa, Ralph- Pasquariello, 220-pound Vlllinova full back, dropped the ball on a line buck and Rowan recovered on Villanqva's 23. Bobby Stuart ripped off 21 yards at his right end, and Wlngfleld Scott went around right end from the three to tally. Villanova presented a veteran team that wa spsimed to end Army's long run of victories which covered the 1944, 1945, and 1946 seasons, marred only by last year's scoreless tie with Notre wrae. But the Wildcat breaks could no nothing aeainst a forward wall led by Capt. Joe Steffy at guard, and only the rifle passes or eleven Romanik kept Villanova in the running.

Sept 27-W-Wallace Wade, Duke's old master, won- revenge today by defeating North Carolina State College 7 to 0 In a Southern Conference football game played two days after State was released from a polio quarantine. Duke lost to State, 13 to 6, in its opener last year and the Wade-led team went on to the most disastrous record in his 24 years of coaching. He lost five and won four. 1 Oddly enough, the Duke touchdown was made by Louis Allen of Greensboro. It Was another Greensboro boy. Don McCormick. who developed polio and forced the State team into quarantine. He listened today to the game by radio, from a Raleigh hospital The Duke score came deep in the final quarter. Footsie Palmer of State dropped back to pass. Bert Lyle and three Duke cohorts block-1 ed the aerial and Allen, who was screaming by, bundled in the aerial and zoomed 45' yards for a touch down. Paul Stephanz placeklcked the extra point, Duke began to look even more powerful, although State, always scrappy, fought back hard. Fred Folger, Duke wlngback. moved 20 yards at right end on a spinner and was stopped on the Duke 39. That set up a first down. But repeated Duke efforts to move - from there failed, Folger himself losing ten yards on a reverse. State's training under Coach Beattie Feathers for alertness seemed In the first quarter that it would pay off. Fred Folger of the Blue Devils passed to his own Bud dy Mulligan but Gordon Goodman, State wlngback, broke it up. Folger shot another pass but Goodman Intercepted it on the State 40 and returned to the Duke 15. But the Wade men, wise on the ways of goal-line stands, stopped the threat on their nine. Both teams started sparring and the 38,-000 fans, settled back for a rough football game. Both sides started knocking them out. Al Derogatls, Duke tackle, and Gwynn Fletcher and Charlie Rich-kus, State tailbacks, were hurt. Rlchkus apparently had a concussion, according to reports from the dressing room after the game. roe.
