Tuesday Evening, November 19, 1957.

The Bulldogs, apparently gaining strength each time out, rolled over Brookston, 71 to 41, for their -third straight . . .

(UP) — pick themselves up and get goingl Duff y 'Daugherty _ said again. Rice's defeat of Bear Bryant's Aggies was a notable one, jbut it was completely overshad- | owed by Notre Dame's brilliant effort at Norman, Okla., an effort seldom equalled in the annals of intercollegiate sport. The preparedness of the Notre Dame team was impressive. Whoever scouted the Oklahoma team had done a thorough job, and Brennan and company had been masterful in instructing the winners, especially on defense. Notre Dame played fundamental football. The Irish tackled and blocked in the line, and while Williams, •Lynch and Pietrosante grabbed Robert W. Fcrnbaugh, of Logansport (right) and Harold Kuhn, of route 1, Akron, proudly display the'the headlines, you've got to take your/hats off to the forward wall. It was strictly a team effort. One thing the victory emphasized you find your best and your toughest football in the Middle West, taking it week in and week out. The Irish had been toughened by a rough schedule; the S.ooners hadn't. That was the basic difference. The win made the season for Notre Dame. The bowl situation is pretty well wrapped up. Ohio State's win over Iowa gave the Buckeye's the trip to the West and killed the hopes of Michigan State. Oregon will felt both his team's No. rating and Ohio State's of a Rose Bowl bid were "deserved." "I don't know of ary team in the nation that could h ave. beaten [Streak^ NEW YORK (UP) - Michigan- State took over the top spot in- the United Press college football ratings today in the wake of weekend upsets that dropped Texaj.

Yonks Offer "Expendables" for Trade Bait; Lane Interested in Andy Carey NEW YORK OUP) — The de- .hroned New York Yankees, los- ng little time in an attempt to get back on the winning track, already have offered four of their 'expendables" in the hope of com- ng up with another front-line pitcher for 1958. the Berry Bowl box office from 4 to S p.m. through Thursday. Trainer to Test Cogers Too Pills Help Iowa State to Profitable Football Season AMES, Iowa (UP) — Iowa State football players, already assured of the best record in six years, might have to thank trainer Beryl Taylor and his "pill program" as much as new Coach Jim Myers. Taylor has had the players taking as many as 44 pills a day since the season started "in order to let them assimilate all the value in their food," and build up their bodies. "The pills help the players build up their ability to use all the food they get through eating," Taylor said. "Most people don't assimilate all the protein, iodine and other minerals and vitamins they get in food." He said the pills he gives out aren't the controversial "pep" pills, allegedly used by athletes year formed the bulk of this year's to enable them to expend large amounts of energy in a short time, such as during a game or race. The program is a long-term building one, Taylor said. He plans to run similar season-long tests on the Cyclone basketball •s and wrestlers. ' "We won't know until after the wrestling season how the pills have helped the players," Taylor said. Coach Myers, who came to Iowa after a term as assistant to Red Sanders of UCLA, said "I don't know either if the pills will help but I'm willing to try anything: in an effort to improve the playei's." Myers had reason to look to all corners for help when he inherited a team which finished last in the Big Eight and ended with a dismal 2-8 record last year. The players who made up that poor team last squad which has run up a 4-4-1 record with one game to go. Today's Sport Parade By OSCAR FRALEY United Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (W)— They sat there together, the picture soldier and the lynx-eyed sea-dog, and as they looked back into the past you knew what the Army-Navy game means to those in Army posts around the -world and aboard all the fighting ships at sea. "The one that sticks in my mind," said Lt. Gen. Gar Davidson, superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy, "was a dark one, any way you look at it." Rear Adm. Bill Smedberg, the Naval Academy superintendent, nodded silently. On Big Retreat "We were on the big retreat from North Korea," continued the handsome, white-haired Davidson, the bitterness of that memory plain in his voice. "We had dug in on the north side of Pyongyang and I had just gooe. tp. .bed .when they routed me out and told. me division wanted us. to pull back farther before we were pinned down." ' It was a bitter cold Jiight in .December of 1950. A. knifelike wind keened over the .snow. Enemy guns might open up at any .moment from the frowning hUls on both sides of the rutted road. But Gar Davidson, the one-time Army star and coach at West Point, thought flsetingly as the convoy retreated clown the valley: "The game should bs just about over at home." They slopped after a while, stampftig their feet in the snow to restore the circulation, and a radio man ran up to Gar in the darkness and puffed: "More tad news — Navy won i;, 14 to 2.'' Davidson straightened in his chair and a slight smile touched his lips. Cup of Woe Overflowed "That night," he said, "my cup of woe ran over." Smedberg nodded again and then began to speak. "You can't help thinking about the game, no matter where you MC^ -when you know it's going to be -played. Like the one" in :1942 when I -was on destroyer patrol off Savo Island." That was another bad period in our nation's history of blood and battle. We had lost four cruisers ip a slugging sea fight off Savo and now men like Smedberg, on hjs own in a gallant little destroyer, defied the enemy in one-ship sorties aimed at cutting the Japanese supply lifeline to island-entrenched trpojps. "I had just tuned in for the kickoff," Smedberg reflected, "and, while the reception was very faint, at least r could hear most of it." But just as the kickot'f soured through the air back :n Annapolis, where the game was played that year, the sonor man .turned on the submarine alarm. Mind on Ibe Game "We went aft 31- him, dropping ashcans all ovir the place," Smedberg said. "Then, as the action ended, my mind went back'to the game. But it \vas over or. at laast, I couldn't get anything anymore." They stayed out on thai lonesome patrol ano'.her full WGPK and, Smedberg recalls, "I almost went crazy wondering who won." Finally one of our cruisers loomed on the horizon and S:-ned- berg dashed tc the blinker light. "Who won the Army game?" he blinked. The answer flickered back: "Army. . ." "My heart sank," Smedberg grinned, "But they were polling my leg." For the message, finished, was: "Army o, Navy 14." Which makes it clear why, for th« fighting men, this one is "the game." ing the past few weeks and there is a chance two or three of those four may figure in a deal during the Major-Minor League meetings at Colorado Springs, Colo., Dec. 2-7. The Baltimore Orioles are especially interested in Simpson, whom Paul Richards feels can help his club at first base. Simpson came to the Yanks from Kansas City last June in the Billy Martin deal. Stengel had his eye on two or three pitchers with the Orioles and the one he probably would like most is Billy Loes, who came on to record a 12-7 record with Baltimore this year after being abandoned by the Dodgers. Slaughter, Byrne and Collins no longer figure in the Yankees' plans because of their age. Slaughter is 41, Byrne will be 38 next month and Collins will be 35 in two weeks. General Manager George Weiss and Stengel always feel they can use more pitching and there are a number of hurlers in the league who appeal tp them. Among those they would like to land are Dick Donovan Narleski of the White Sox, Ray of the Indians, Billy Hoeft of the Tigers and Camilio Pascual of the Senators. Gophers Blame Too Much Publicity for Poor Grid Showing CHICAGO. '(UP) - Pre-season publicity is partly to blame for Minnesota's poor football showing this fall. Athletic Director Ike Armstrong said Monday. •• "It's awfully hard to live up to your advance billing when you are too highly touted," he told a Monday quarterback lunch.' The Gophers, behind quarterback Bobby Cox, lost only one game in nine 'stars last season and were generally pick'ed to be even better in 1957. Instead, they have dropped four out of eight thus far, losing by whopping scores of 44-20 to Iowa and 42-13 to Michigan State. "Perhaps it's the kiss of death implanted by those magazine articles praising your team or your players," Armstrong said. Purdue Gains 23 Yards and Scores 3 TDs CHICAGO (UP) — Purdue made gains of 23 yards good for three touchdowns against his Wildcats, so Northwestern Coach Ara Parseghian told the "wailing wall" today "you've got to be damn unlucky to go winless." "They had two touchdowns when their total offense was seven yards," he said. "We had a pass interception and they ran one play, then threw a pass and we were behind. Next our boy drops the ball, they recover and! -have to go only four yards for a touchdown. They made a total offense of 23 yards good for three touchdowns." HAVANA, Cuba (UP) — Frank Lane, new Cleveland Indians general manager, virtually challenged the New York Yankees to make a. deal with him Monday and said he would trade any of his players except Herb Score. "I'd like to make a deal with the Yankees. That's the only club „, I ve trade with ." said baseball's busiest trader. "Maybe George Weiss (Yankee general manager) is too smart for me," Lane said with a grin. "He likes to trade with Washington and Kansas City. They always, finish in or near the cellar." Lane, former Chicago^ White Sox general manager who ~ held that job with the St. Louis Cardinals the past two seasons, indicated he was glad to be back in the American League for another shot at the Yankees. "My clubs (the finished second or White Sox) third without Jack Mollenkopf of Purdue any trades with the Yanks. Maybe agreed. "We won," he said, "but if I made a trade with Weiss, I'd we didn't do it impressively. We took advantage of all our chances, So I guess we were opportunists. I think maybe we downrated 1 but 1 finish in the cellar — or perhaps first place," Lane said. "I'd like to get Andy Carey from the Yanks, Northwestern, but we were down a little bit.." Milt Bruhn of Wisconsin felt that "a lot of penalties at crucial times" hurt the Badgers against Illinois. "Illinois seemed to gain momentum . as the game went along," he said, "and we made a lot of mistakes. We were pretty high for the game." Ray Eliot of Illinois said that Wisconsin was "about us good as any we'^ve played this season. They had a good team, fast and tough, and they can do a 1 lot of things. I'd say they're the most improved team in the conference." Bob Hicks said his Indiana team "stuck in there pretty good" against Michigan. "We played a 0-0 first quarter, and that's the first time we've done .that this year. We changed our defenses, and they worked very very good. Now the kids would like to go out and beat Purdue." would don't trade want for him." know whether him or what they they Russell on Record Rebounding Course In Pro Cage Race George Yardley's drive toward the league lead in scoring and Bill Russell's record-busting rebounding are the current individual highlights in the National Basketball Association. Official figures disclosed today that the veteran Yardley of Detroit is scoring points at the rate of 28.7 per game, three points better than any other player, and may tak« over the total point lead later this week.' And Russell, the 1956 Olympic star playing his first full pro season for Boston, set a new league record Saturday by grabbing 49 rebounds, including a record 17 in RHODES COMPETITION SHEEN-CASTLE <TO>> — Daniel E.

Henri Richard Takes Lead From "Rocket" By UNITED PRESS Henri (Pocket Rocket) Richard scored only two assists in three games last week, but it was enough t.. take over the National Hockey League scoring lead from his ailing elder brother, Maurice, with 24 points. Henri, one of the smallest men in the league, leads all marksmen with 12 goals and is tied with four others for the most assists at 12.

Navy, Iowa, Notre Dame and Army rounded out the select group- in that order.

Hockey Star Suffers Serious Brain Injury DENVER (UP)— George Congrave, 21-year-old Canadian hockey player at the University of Denver, remained in "serious" condition today from a brain injury suffered in a freak accident on the ice.
