PAGE TEN THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27,19ST RALLY TO BEAT PITT N.D. Pass Play Clicks, Purdue Mauls Miami SOUTH BEND, Ind. UP>-A spectacular 74-yard touchdown pass play from soph quarterback George Izo to "injured" halfback Aubrey Lewis gave unbeaten Notre Dame a 13 to 7 victory over Pittsburgh's Panthers in a bitter, f'ist^swinging football battle Saturday. Three players, two from Notre i>ame and'one from Pitt, were ejected as the Irish won .their ; fourth consecutive triumph on the thrilling.Izo-Lewis pass, the opening play of the fourth quarter. Izo got his chance because No. 1 Irish quarterback, Bob Williams, was tossed out with Pitt end Dick Seherer, for a third quarter squabble. Irish halfback Dick Lynch:was chased for swinging at a Panther on .halfback Frank Heynolds's one-yard touchdown plunge for a 6-0 Notre Dame lead -in the first period. Pitt's, snarling Panthers roared -56-yardsan 13 plays for a second .quarter touchdown on quarterback Bill Kaliden's one-yard sneak. No. 2 : Pitt quarterback Ivan: Toncic booted the point for a 7-6 halftime lead. • Notre Dame's blocked point try loomed large until Izo arched a long pass to Lewis, who .took the ball on Notre Dame's. 45 at full lilt and easily romped to the game-deciding touchdown. It was the first time track star Lewis had his hands on the ball since he was injured in the Purdue opener. This was a throwback to old time' Pitt-Irish- rivalry. It wasn't, smooth football, but- it was hard- hitting, jolt-'em-to-the-toes foot ball. Tempers flared as' early as ; the opening Irish touchdown in the first quarter. After the Irish had bludgeoned their way 52 yards to the Pitt one in and held on the one-yard line as time ran out, A fumble on the four-yard line opened'the door for Indiana's tying touchdown in the second quarter. Norm Mackin went over on tihe first plav. Ken Hubbart dove the last yard for the clincher in the third period after a .27-yard .pass from Tom McDonald Dave Whitsell had set up the score. Villarova drove 62 yards score the second time it got the ball. A pass from .Jim Grazione to Rick, Sapiensa covered 47' of those yards, and Ja-ck Devereaux ran. -the rest, scoring from the five yard line. The Wildcats didn't threaten seriously again until time' was running'out. They'drove 83' with Dave Parr and Dave Intra- ba'rtalo carrying most of the time out Indiana held. Sapeinz-a and Jim Yore of Indiana were put out of the game in the second quarter after personal fouls. Fifty high school bands and 3,000 bandsmen played between halves. The attendance was 20,000.

During the goal line struggle on the play, halfback Lynch of Notre Dame delivered a rousing right hand punch in the direction of a Pitt defender. An official spotted the blow and immediately ejected Lynch from the game. Lynch said" the Pitt player, unidentified; hit him first. Notre Dame had its misfortune later, but in its first quarter touchdown drive they had typical luck of the Irish. On two plays, the Irish fumbled yet gained a total of 18 yards as end Gary Myers recovered for Notre' Dame each time. Third string Irish quarterback Don White's conversion try was blocked by Pitt guard Dan Wisnewski. The Panthers wasted-little time exploiting some puzzling Irish strategy which backfired. After rolling 40 yards on the ground to Pitt's 28 the Irish elected to pass. On a fourth down pass, quarterback Williams was'nailed for a 20- yard loss on Pitt's 46. * Thirteen plays later, the Panthers scored with Kaliden sneaking across from the one. Halfback Scisly was the big gun in the drive, spinning 21 yards on three straight carries to Notre Dame's 12. Toncic's swift, .true/ boot through the uprights put the Panthers ahead 7-6. Jim Bust who replaced the banished Lynch ignited a spirited Irish drive'from their 40 to Pitt's 21, but Nick Pfetrosante fumbled directly into the hands of Panther fullback Dick Bowen on Pitt's 20 and that took care of the first half. Pittsburgh Notre Dame SOPH STARS AGAIN LAFAYETTE, Ind. UPT — Ros, Fich'tner, Purdue's sophomore secret weapon in the Boilermak er's upset of Michigan State lasi week, starred again Saturday in a 37-6 victory over' Miami of Ohio. The 6-foot quarterback threw two touchdown passes to 1 end Tom Frankhauser, for 12 and 13 yards, set up another score with a 42- yard pass play to Erich Barnes, and kickiid an extra point. The Bi:[ Ten team had too much muscle in the line for Miami's Redskins and repeatedly .smothered the Ohio backs for big losses. made a net gain of 14 yards by rushing'to Purdue's 287'. Fullback Jim Reddinger plunged from the Miami one after the long Fichtner-Barnes pass in the first quarter. Fichtner's touchdown throws to Frankhauser gave Purdue a 21-o bulge before halfback. Bill.Williams ran four yards for Miami's third-quarter touchdown. Ernie J-arvis, capable Miami quarterback from Richmond, Ind., passed to. halfback Hal Williams for a 49-yard gainer that set up the Redskins' touchdown. Jarvis was a high school teammate of Purdue's Tommy Fletcher, who kicked three extra points. ( Miami had the better of the statistics only on 108 yards of passing to Purdue's 98. Jarvis completed five of 11 passes for 91 yards of Miami's gross gain of 122. •• Purdue clustered 16 points in the final period. Sophomore halfback Leonard Wilson tackled Miami's Hal Williams in the Redskins end zon e for a safety. Sophomore halfback Joe Kulbacki raced 42 yards for Purdue's fourth touchdown, and fullback Mel Dillard got' the fifth on a four-yard' plunge: CHAMPS GET AWARDS — Shown here are^the National Bank Senators, champions of the American Division, Little League baseball program in Logansport this past summer, as they received jacket awards for their efforts.
