Take Opener of Iowa State Playoffs Mason City Blanks Carroll 6-0 Willingham Dusty Stearnes Top Halfback List IOWA CITY--The offense will gel a solid shot in the ar-m if George (Dusty) Hicc, who ! broke records as a sophomore, is at left halfback and if Bob Stearnes, possessor of passing and running skill, holds the other halfback position .on the University of Iowa football team. And the defense will profit by the presence of Lettermen Harold lleistcr, .lack Hess and Bob Phillips, who have had various degrees of Big Ten experience as defenders. The llawkeyes list 19 halfback candidates to start drill Sept. 3 and among them are some pretty fail- prospects including several improved youngsters. However there appear to be no carriers of the fast game-breaking type, with the exception of Rice. Need Healthy Rice In the case - of "Dusty," the finger-crossing act is in full swing The Oelwcin junior had a knee operation in June and his complete recovery has lagged. A'healthy Rice will make a Ire mcndous difference, for last yeai he averaged 4.8 yards per carry caught 17 passes for 3C1 yards aric 6 TDs and broke; or tied six rec ords, including a 100 yard kickofl return for a Big Ten mark. Rice averaged 5.3 yards by rush ing in Big Ten games and ranked first in the league on average yards of kickoff returns. He is a weaving hard-to-tacklc runner who scorec nine touchdowns in the 1951 games some of them from far "out. Stearnes Improved Little Bobby Stearnes, a young dynamo, is a top right halfback prospect. He played in five major games as a freshman and in spring showed great improvement as runner and left-handed passer Stearnes, from Gary, Ind., is a 170-pounder. Defensively, Iowa can call -upon Harold Roister, Sioux City, a 180 pound senior .who also can carry the ball; Bob Phillips, Cedar Rap ids, another veteran; and Jac Hess, DCS Moines. Hess, a baseba! infielder, missed spring drill. I is possible he may be tried at qiiai tcrback. Don J n m a n of Tama, up from th JV team, was much improved a right halfback last spring. He's ; left-hander who can throw on Ih run and as a carrier he runs hart Coaches say he is a good blocker too, and a fair pass-receiver. If weighs 190 pounds and was Hire times a prep all-staler. Daniels "Real Prospect" Another good one is Chuck Dan iels, Sioux City, named ns a "rea prospect" who has running, pass ing and punting ability. Daniels i a solid 180-pounder, a second se mcster freshman. Left halfback candidates includ Clyde Kitchen, Oskaloosa, and fai passer and catcher; Prentiss La monl, Cherokee, who might pla some defense; Jerry White, low City, a future prospect; Don Woo scy, Atlantic; and.Bruce Price, E dora. Others at right halfback ard Lyl Leinbaugh, flolstein, a minor let tcrman good on defense; Don Boi cherding, Sumncr; David Johnsoi Northwood; Jack Willctt, Oelwein who likes defense; Dunne Davi Iowa City; and Dick Brattebo Slory City, a senior.

Choo- Choo's last run set up a field goal which cut the Rams' lead lo 21-1R. From then on, the Rams wcnl ahead in workmanlike fashion. Norm Van Brocklin .tossed four touchdown passes, and set up a fifth score. Bob Waterficld set up the sixth tally with three passes, and booted a field goal and six conversions. The game's biggest sensation was provided by ex-Southern California Halfback Johnny Williams. He took a Ram kickoff on his own goal line, dropped the ball, re trievcd it and then scooted the rest of the way to score. He was credited wilh a 100-yard run.
