THE SUN, BALTIMORE, SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 1), 1047 Army Eleven Stretches Unbeaten Streak To 32 Games In Beating V.P.I. PACE 2 SCORES-40-0 GRID VICTORY Virginia Tech Held To Only Three First Downs West Point. N.Y.. Oct. 18 UP) Army held Virginia Tech in complete subjugation today, overwhelming the Southerners, 40 to 0, tjiereby extending its brilliant string of consecutive games without defeat to 32. i Army also remained unscored upon in its four games this season. Tech managed to get only as far as Army's 45-yard line, and was held to three first downs. But the plucky invading team started out stubbornly, holding Army scoreless through the first period and twice-taking the ball on downs inside its 10-yard line. Rip Rowan, Charles Gabrielle, Amos Gillette and Bobby Stuart I were Army's big ground gainers, while -Floyd Bowles, at quarterback looked best for Tech, although three of his passes were intercepted to set up Army touchdowns. 5 Runs 47 Yards The longest run of the game was fv 47 yards, made by Gillette as pjrt of a steady Army drive that sorted on its own 15 soon after te second half opened. Gillette, vio was almost cornered eoinff managed to keep his feet and break ' center and Arnold Galiffa scored from the half-yard lineto make it-26-0. Army's first two touchdowns came in quick succession at the etart of the second period. The first score climaxed a steady drive down the field with Rowan going over from the six-yard line, standing up. Winfield Scott engineered the next when he squirmed 40 yards only to be run out of bounds on the Tech 3 He crossed the line on the next play. Lead 19-0 At Half Three Army touchdowns came as the direct result of intercepting Bowles's passes to make the score 19-0 just before the end of the first half. Tom Bullock, substitute center, snagged an aerial and re turned to Tech's 26. Galiffa passed to Davis Parris. in the end zone on the next play. In the third period Rowan caught another of Bowles's throws, ran to Tech's, 8. and then rounded his left end to score. The third instance was in the final period when Charles Gabrielle intercepted, ran down the sidelines and then lateralled to John Shelley v ho was pushed out on t he Tech 10. a 40-yard gain, from there Gil lette scored to make it 40-0. Army's mastery was shown statistically by the fact, the Cadets gained 392 yards by rushing against .only 10 for Tech. The two teams were equal- in forward passing, However, each making 48 yards through the air. rm Virginia Tech Fars L! Honkins .... Ventulaa Barbour .

The fourth quarter was only sec onds old when Lex rammed into Carolina's forward wall, let the leather bounce from his hands on his 19-yard line, where End Ken Powell sprawled on it for North Carolina. It took North Carolina only six P'ays to push over the touchdown that was to knock William and Mary from the conference leader-.thip. Charlie Justice engineered the winning touchdown march.

Sweeping 54 yards in ten plays, Hawkins capped the drive by bucking over from Cornell's 2 after two 15-yard passes from Baysinger to Ryan and Art Markel had kept the attack rolling. Wills made the after-touchdown point and Navy went to the front to stay, 14-13. Following another punt exchange, Navy, with just two minutes remaining in the half, swept 33 yards in two plays to set the stage for a field goal by Wills on the last play of the half. Bobby Home threw a long pass which Ryan caught on Cornell's 25 and raced down to the 13 before being dumped out of bounds. Four sec onds showed on the clock, so Coach Hamilton called on Wills, and the youngster answered with a three- pointer which he booted from the 13-yard line, 15 yards inside the east boundry line. Ryan Scores On Pass After trailing, 17-14, at half-time, Cornell produced it's best drive of the game in the third period, marching from it's own 30 to Navy's 16. However, the big Navy line mobbed Dean trying to pass twice in succession and Navy turned right around and soared 84 yards in only nine plays for it's third touchdown. With McCully, Hawkins and SchwocrfTerman running wild and Baysinger pitching timely passes, the Middies scored on an 8-yard bullet pass over the line from Bay-singer to Ryan. Wills's conversion made it 24-13 for Navy. Then Cornell pulled one out of the hat. After a brilliant coffin corner punt by Baysinger went out on the Cornell three-yard line, Dean dropped back as if to punt and get the ball out of danger. Hawkins Scores Agaip Instead, the clever field-general threw a seven-yard pass which Dawnon caught in Navy's secondary defense and the latter raced the r?.st of the way for a touchdown. He ran right in front of the wildly cheering Cornell undergraduate section, eluded Baysinger's tackle on Cornell's 30, and side-stepped a last minute tackle by SchwoeiTer-man on Navy's 30 to go all the way. So the final quarter found Navy leading only by five points despite their having nushcri the Cnmcllin all over the gridiron. Two coffin cor ner punts by Baysinger kept Cornell deep in its own territory, and finally the Middies annliprf the clincher by zooming 79 yards for a iQuciidown in 12 plays. Hawkins again capped the drive by plunging over from the 2 and Wills fired his fourth straight extra-point through ihe uprights. Navy added its fifth and final touchdown within the last three minutes of play. Russell Intercepts Pass Roy Russell intereeDted npan's pass on Cornell's 2fi. and n.iw reached paydirt in five plays. Earl, Kin ADromitis and Home carried to the 1 from where Home went over on a quarterback sneak. Navy's line, featuring anniher outstanding exhibition by it's center ana team captain, uick Scott, and aggressiveness from end to , end, held Cornell to 19-yards rushing, besides opening up wide holes for the Tar backs to scamper through. Texas A.& M. Hows To Texas Christian Fort Worth. Texas, Oct. 18 (P) With Lindy Berry in the starring role. Texas Christian upset the Texas Aggies, 26-0, in a Southwest Conference game here today. Thirty thousand fans jammed T.C.U.'s stadium for the fiftieth anniversary of the two schools' grid rivalry and saw the winners break a listless first-period defense duel by scoring once in the second period, twice In the third and again in the final quarter. ScliwoefTerman, of Navy, downed Princeton Eleven Defeats Colgate In 20-To-7 Clash Princeton, N.J., Oct. 18 A slightly underdog Princeton foot ball team today scored a 20-to-7 victory over Colgate. The shirtslfleved spectators in Palmer Stadium saw the Princeton eleven score late in the first period on a one-yard plunge by John Powers, again in the second quar ter on a brilliant 64-yard punt return by George Sella, and in the final quarter on a whack at the line by Powers after a 50-yard pass play, Val Wagner to Sella, had placed the ball in scoring position. The lone Colgate score came shortly after Glen Treichler had returned the kickoff 43 yards tolhe Princeton 49 to start the third quar ter. Aided by a 15-yard penalty against Princeton for unsportsmanlike conduct, Colgate advanced to the 2. from where Muehlheuser went over standing up. Colgate Drives Halted Princeton seemed definitely on the run at that point as Carroll Mc-Loughlin was clicking with passes to a variety of receivers, but a fumble checked one promising Colgate drive and an interception by Art Burns on the Princeton 28 stymied another. From that point on the pendulum swung toward the home team. The Wagner-Sella 50-yard pass setting up the final Princeton touchdown was the killer. After the Tigers had scored as a result of that play, Colgate's orriy hope was in connecting with long passes, and it couldn't do it. Princeton had one bright scoring chance early in the first period which it muffed. It had marched Kentucky Bcals Vandcrhilt, 14-0 Nashville, Tenn..

The heat appeared to handicap both teams, with Princeton apparently the richer in capable reserves who moved in and out of the line-up continually as Colgate gradually wilted under, Jhe pressure of fresh men.

HARVARD TOPS HOLY CROSSJ-0 Victors Score Touchdown On Pass In Third Period Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 18 (P) Harvard scored a 7-0 victory over Holy Cross today at the stadium. Holy Cross was coming off a defeat and those keen New England rivals appeared destined to put on a tame stalemate until the third period, when the still-weary hosts rallied suddenly on their 25-yard line and drove for their touchdown. It came when Johnny Fiorcntino pulled a 14-yard pass from Chip Gannon out of the hands of two defenders in the Holy Cross end zone. Played Listlessly Until then, both toams had played listlessly in midsummer heat. Holy Cross appeared to have power to burn and most of it did when it was rammed into Harvard's wide variety of defenders which ranged from five to nine-man lines. The spark that set off Harvard's second straight win over Holy Cross and its fifteenth In a 22-game series, came when Bobby Sullivan punted outside on Harvard's 25. Gannon, taking off on a third-down play, made ten, and then Fullback Paul Lazzaro, who has taken over for the permanently sidelined captain, Vince Moravec. banged through the middle, .14 and six yards, respectively, to Holy Cross' 25. With pay territory In sight for the first time. Ken O'Donnell moved Harvard an additional ten by passing to Left-Winger George Hill. Then the left-handed Gannon took over and contacted Fiorcntino, despite the fact that he appeared hopelessly surrounded by Cru saders Bob Sullivan and Walt Sheridan. Boots Extra Point Harvard's unneeded seventh point was provided by the unusually dependable Bill Harrison, who rides the Harvard bench until the stage is set for a placekick conversion. Just before the first half ended, O'Donnell battered down a long fourth-down heave from Sheridan to Leo Troy, a receiving specialist, on Harvrad's two-yard line. But Holy Cross's only impressive march of the game was made early in the finale. The lusty booting Wally Flynn punted to Ray Sullivan and that younger brother of Crusader Co-captain Bob returned it . 15 yards to Harvard s 45. Pass Aroses Fans Then Holy Cross fans jumped to their feet as Walt Brennan arched to Jim Dieckclman on Harvard's 25. But the Crusaders' rooters slumped a few seconds later when Bob Sullivan took over the passing assignment and threw into the arms of Center Don Stone, who returned the interception 10 yards to his own 25. Just before lime expired. Bren nan tried a do or-die pass from Holy Cross' 39-yard line, but Jim Noonan. who, like all the other Harvard secondaries, was prepared for just such gambde. bobbled it up and his teammates froze the ball until the sixtieth minute died.

It was the fourth straight victory for Virginia which has yet to be beaten. Billy Pennel, galloped over for the initial Virginia tally after only five minutes of the first quarter. But if the Virginia faithful expected a rout after this early display of power, they soon found they were sadly mistaken, Pennel Scores Again Fennel's second touchdown jaunt, a 34-yard run in the second period, gave the victors a 13-0 edge at halftime, but Washington and Lee closed the gap to 13-7 almost immediately after the second half opened when Charlie Harrington took a Dick Working pass on his own 30 and raced 70 yards to score. That s the way it stood going into the fourth quarter, and it was then that disaster overtook W. & L. Before the last 15 minutes had run their course, Freshman John Papit. Halfback George Grimes and End Carlton Elliott all had crossed over into-pay dirt for Vir ginia and the contest was a closed affair. - John Papit Scores It all started when Quarterback Mike Boyda, the W.& L. kicking ace. booted to Grimes on the Vir ginia 30. Grimes handed off to Pennel, who proceeded to romp 26 yards to the W.& L. 44. Virginia picked up four yards and. on the next play, Papit bulled through 40 yards for the third tally. Virginia had the ball again in less than a minute, when Henry Mastriann. substitute fullback fumbled on the Virginia 38. Vir ginia worked it to the W.&L. 42, from where Grimes broke loose and carried it over. Virginia's last score came with five minutes left, when Dick Michels tossed a 17-yard pass to Elliott in the end zone. Washincion lb Lee Vlrrlnla Elliott . . Kirkland Lukens L.I?

Baltimore's last thro? panics will be played with Buffalo. f ,Viicago and Cleveland. Fans already .are buying tickets for the Buffalo clash here November 23. The tui tvtlent con test between the Colts j nl the Bills apparently has steamed up a bitter rivalry. Regardless what hap tens from here on the local club- las broken into the All-America conference with a bang. Other clufl'K have had one or more years e:pcnence in operation, but from the :flrst game every move here has bt?( n of major league caliber. When Bob Rodenber tend his as sociates looK over the cup someone remarked that he hoped, the new owners would not operra r the franchise on a shoe string., Bob asked the writer with a twinitle in his eye the other day if any rhncstrings had been seen around t fvStodium. There certainly has bccvi no com plaint along that line. , it it Winner PICKING the winner ol' tnmorrow night's fight between CJvcJIone Williams and Roy Miller is'aot an easy task. Williams is well knowui here, and fans know what to explecj of him. Miller hails from Kansm; (City, and is not as well known in til Is section. For that reason the fan probably will install Williams the favorite. Cyclone may win it, bnl. the mere fact Miller has staged his matches in the middle West is no reason why- he can't take William! One big thing in his argument in his con nection. Roy is managed -Jiy Hammering Henry Armstrcrt p. thrice world champion, and it slt'ms like he would not be wasting his time on a dud. Armstrong has been . trying to come up with a topnotlh fighter. and he believes Miller iill be his man. Roy is 21 years olil. has engaged in 50 professional lioyts, and holds victories over s(iie name fighters.

Conquerors of the champion Cleveland Browns last Sunday, the Dons will be facing the Colts for the first time this season. Next Sunday the same clubs will meet again in Los Angeles. Today's contest also marks the Colts' last appearance here until November 23. when the Buffalo Bills come to town for that eagerly awaited return game between the principals of last Sunday's disputed 20-15 affair in Buffalo. Between' these tests the Colts will wind up their road schedule with successive appearances in Los An geles, New York, Chicago and Brooklyn. Dons Are Favorites Although Los Angeles has won only three and dropped three, the pro-grid savants have dropped the favorite mantle upon the Doni which is not surprising to Coach Cecil Isbell's gridders. The Colts have been the underdog in all six of their games to date, but conference rivals are beginning to be v ry of their bite. With another exciting game in prospect, a banner crowd is being anticipated by Colt officials. Given fair weather a crowd of between 40.000 and 45.000 is expected to be on hand. Another glittering passing duel promises to be one of the day' features with Bud Schwenk. the conference's leading tosser. pitching for the Colts against Chuckin Charley O'Rourke of the visitors. The 30-year-old Donj heaver starred for Boston College before the war. Schwenk has completed 67 out of 125 passes for a total of R27 yards, including three touchdowns. O'Rourke stands fifth among the conference's top passers with 43 completions in 73 heaves for a total of 723 yards and eight touchdowns. Schwenk and O'Rourke may steal the spotlight again, but they'll have plenty of competition from a host of star-studded males. Los Angelei has a line which averages 240 pounds with last year's all-conference center, Bob Nelson, and Burr Baldwin, teammate of the Colts Ernie Case on last fall's U.C.L.A, eleven, among the bettcr-knowns. Glenn Dobbj Returns In the backficld, the Dons feature Glenn Dobbs, most valuable player in the circuit last year and back for another crack at the Colls. Dobbs was with Brooklyn when the Colts opened their season here last month. Then there is Jarrin John Kim-brough, former Texas A.& M. All-American, at fullback for the Dons; Chuck Fenenbock, former U C L A. ace, and Bob Kelly, ex-Notrc Dame star, and Harry Clarke from West Virginia as the outside runners, and the scintillating Reinhard brothers Bob and Bill from California xo. colts L03ANOE1FS No. .An itirre 57 . . .

Only in the first half was it much of a ball game. George Washington hasn t won a game this year but by hustling it managed to keep the score to a respectable 13-7 count at half time.
