Slaughter's h o m e r was his seventh series hit, boosting his average to a shiny .583. The Yankees, who played in a dreamy daze for two days in Brooklyn, reacted violently to the bumper crowd of 73.977 on their return to Yankee Stadium. Relay Catches Furillo An eye-catching relay from Hank Bauer to Billy .Martin to Andy Carey cut down Carl Furillo trying to stretch a double into a triple, snuffing out the Dodgers' last threat to Ford in the ninth. Ford, who lasted only three innings in the opener defeat by old Sal Maglie, curled his curve past the Dodgers for an eight-hitter, his fourth series triumph. The chunky little lefthander walked only two and struck out seven, fanning the feared Duke Snider three times. It was Ford who finally stopped Brooklyn's sluggers but it was Slaughter who really finished off the Dodgers. Hero of the 1946 Series when he dashed three bases on a routine single into right center to give the Cards tne championship over the Boston Red Sox. Slaughter continued his Gil Hodges of Dodgers . . . slides home safely in seventh inning despite good block of plate by Yankees' catcher Yogi Berra.

Ford, Craig Locked Ford and Craig were locked 1-1 after they traded runs in the second until the Dodgers finally opened up a one-run lead in the sixth on Pee Wee Reese's triple past Mickey Mantle and Snider's deep sacrifice fly to Mantle. The huge crowd was the largest to see a Series game in New York since Oct. 5, 1947. Bauer, hitless in two previous trips, looped a single into short left field. Joe Collins, instead of bunting with the tying run on first and nobody out. swung at the first pitch and flied to Snider. Then Mantle, whose only hit was a drag bunt single in the first popped high to Gil Hodges. Berra kept it alive with a single to right center. Then Slaughter, the , leading Yankee series hitter, strode to the plate. Swinging on the 3-1 pitch, Slaughter drove the ball over the head of Furillo, straining at the leash at the very edge of the right field barrier. It sailed about four rows back while Bauer, Berra and Slaughter circled the bases.

Apparently doomed to a one- point defeat, Nebraska turned the tide in the waning moments when Nebraska center Bob Berguin pounced on a loose ball on Iowa State's 15.

Through most ,of the fumble- beset contest, it looked like "Iowa State's day. Walter Grabs Fumble Cyclone fullback Marv Walter snatched a fumble and raced 55 yards to score in the |irsL_quar-- ter. End John Scheldrup kicked the conversion point to put Iowa State ahead, 7-0. In the second quarter Nebraska sprung fullback Jerry Brown loose for a 71 yard touchdown run, but Larry Naviaux's conversion try went awry. Thereafter, not until the wild and wooly finale, could either team do anything but battle in scoreless futility. Statistically the game was Nebraska's. The Huskers held a 147 margin in first downs and 253150 in net yards. Â· ISC Drew First Blood The contest, 41st in a series dating back to 1896, was only 3'/i minutes old when Iowa State drew first blood. On the eighth play after the kickoff Nebraska's Roy Stinnett bobbled the ball. Walter, '200 pound junior, leaped high to snare the wayward "oval and dashed 55 yards for the counter. 1 Iowa State threatened again in the same quarter when a 38 yard sprint by Cycone left half Jim Lary carried (he cyclones deeply into Nebraska territory. When the Husker defenses stiffened on the nine yard line Scheldrup attempted a field goal but it went wide of the mark. Nebraska's s e c o n d quarter touchdown, like Iowa State's in the first, came with unexpected suddenness. An Iowa State punt put Nebraska on its own 28. Two plays later Brown, 205 pound fullback, penetrated Iowa State's line, shook off the secondary and romped 71 yards to score. Larry Naviaux's conversion kick, which could have tied the score, sailed wide of the uprights. owa Scores 2-rQuiekies Â·: ^ To Win 14-13 IOWA CITY.

JP --Notre Dame marched 99 yards for an insurance touchdown in a 20-6 victory over stubborn Indiana which threatened all the way in the 1956 home football opener a t N o t r e Dame stadium Saturday. The lineups were almost as green as the turf for both teams in a plodding contest which saw the Fighting Irish claw their way into the victory ranks after a 19-13 loss to Southern Methodist Sept. 13. The Irish led all the way. scor- Dg.ii the first quarter on quarterback Paul Hbr'nung's one-yard sneak and early in the second quarter on Hornung's 12 - yard pass to halfback Aubrey Lewis, who scored two touchdowns. Indiana which opened last week with a 27-0 loss to Iowa scored in the second period on a 64-yard drive with third string quarterback Tom Kendrick plunging across from the 1.

The next two Dodgers went quietly.

Bauer caught it near the Yankee bullpen gate after he had stumbled. Martin promptly got that run back in the Yankee second when he hit a 1-2- pitch deep into the lower left field stands, just barely fair. It was his second homer of this series and his fifth in five series. Ford and Craig went through the next three scoreless innings until Reese's triple on a bail that Mantle just failed .to reach, and Snider's sacrifice gave Brooklyn its run in the sixth.

Iowa-- got--its fJ!:.st--touchdown with 11:17 left in the fourth period on a play sent in from the bench by Coach Forest Evashevski. Iowa was in a fourth down situation on the five yard line when Evashevski relayed his desires by a substitution. Delay of the game cost Iowa five yards but fullback John Nocera passed to Frank Gilliam in the end zone and Prescott added the extra point. Iowa was trie recipient of a big break when Earnel Burden fumbled on the ensuing kickoff and Prescott, carrying out. his role of hero, recovered on the Oregon State 30. A penalty eventually bad Iowa back on the 33 and frm there Duncan pitched to Jim Gibbons who caught the ball on the one and stepped over. Prescott made the conversion and it was Iowa 14-13. It Stayed That Way That's the way it stayed, although a 49-yard pass play, Lowe to Sterling Hammack from the Oregon State 35, had the crowd of 41,027 dizzy at the finish. Durden scored Oregon State's first touchdown on a nifty play after Tom Berry had recovered Don Dohrino's fumble on the Iowa 3L-on his kickoff return. Joe Francis, throwing from the 30, caught Durden on the 10 and the halfback nit-1 nu'hmilik- running across the goal line.. Unfortunately for the Beavers, Ted Searle's conversion was blocked by Frank Bloomquist. Lowe's run for the second Oregon State touchdown was the best of the day. It came immediately after his team had been dropped back to the Iowa 49 on a holding penalty. Lmve Pfaked Up Yards Lowe promptly made up the lost yardage and more with a rip through Iowa's left side and out into the open where he found himself in the friendly company of teammates whose escort service w a s m a r v e o u s l y proficient against lowans anxious to block hi.s path. Searle made th? score 13-0 with his placement and it appeared the ceptcd pass. Another five-yard infraction hurt Oregon Slate after a pass had gone to the Iowa 21. Evashevski apparently was Â» displeased with his first team that he started his second string in the "second half. But he went back to his regulars following a spurt by the eBavers that eventually wound up with Lowe's 49-yard run.
