To the State forwards, Nelson) Spencer, Brown, and Alabama's other ; fast' moving backs were just another bunch or ball play-ers. - A blocked punt early in the third period set up State's first touchdown.

PERFORMANCE Be M " eW A Show For All Who Like Good Clean Sport Yanks Beat Brooklyn, 2 To Notre Dame's Irish Defeat Indiana, 19-6 Bertelll And Evans Lead Fighting Irish To Win 17V Over Hoosiers SOUTH BEND, LND, Oct 4 (JP) Sophomore Angelo Bertelll and the veteran Dippy Evans, slippery fullback, led Notre Dame's fighting Irish to a 19 to 6 victory over Indiana today before 45,000 spectators, a spectacular running and aerial attack producing touchdowns in the first three periods. The victory was Frank Leahy's second in as many starts as the Irish head coach and marked the second straight' week that the Hoosiers had lost in the young gria season. Bertelli, set up . the first two touchdowns with aerials and the third came on a driving ground attack, cut tvans was the man of the hour when a few yards were needed, scoring all three touchdowns on short punches into the Indiana line. Indiana reached the Notre Dame 49-yard line in the first period and never improved on that mark in the rest of the game except for the one sudden touchdown thrust This came midway of the third period when Earl Doloway passed 29 yards to Ken Smith. Just as he was tackled he lateraled to Charles Jacoby who ran the remaining 25 yards to score. Gene White's placement was wide. The Irish took a lead late in the first quarter, starting from their own 41.1 Bertelli nassed 13 yards to George Murphy and 24 yards to teve Juzwik in a drive to the three, from which point Evans smashed across for the tally. Juzwik's kick was low. The Irish scored again in the waning minutes of the half, start ing from the Indiana 20 after Dol oway had punted from behind his goal line. A fancy spread play lost 13 then Bertelli passed 29 yards to Juzwik. Evans again drove across for the score and Juzwik kicked the point J. he smoothly operating Irish ran their lead to 19-0 in the third on a 48-yard drive, Juzwik, Evans and Bertelli battering the Indiana line.

Masterful pitching by Marius Russo, a young southpaw with a sick stomach,- and four Quick singles in the eighth inning brought the New York Yankees a 2 to 1 trumph over the Brooklyn Dodgers today and gave the Yanks a two to one advantage in the games played. ; , But . the memory that was printed indelibly in 'the minds of the 33,100 sweltering- fans who jammed this little park for Brooklyn's first series show in 21 years was the gallant fight of old Fred Fitssinunons until a line driva struck him on ths left leg in the seventh inning and knocked him out of the ball : game. . . - -, - - . The . fat 40-year-old knuckle ball expert- who in his younger days as a star of the New York Giants was beaten three times in world series contests, battled beautifully in a scoreless hurling duel that kept every fan in suspense while it lasted and brought them to their feet cheering time after time. Then with two out in the seventh, Russo ripped off a vicious line drive that struck top-heavy old Friti inches above- the left knee and bounced high in the air. F-eewee Reese caught the ball to end the inning, but Fitz-simmonj had to be helped off the field and later was taken to New York Hospital for X-rays to de termine whether the kneecap might have been broken. His removal let down the dykes to the power of the Yankees and after Johnny Sturm had flied out to open the eighth against relief Pitcher Hugh Casey, Red Rolfe Tom Henrich, Joe DiMaggio and Charley Keller blasted four con secutive singles for two runs. Larry French, Brooklyn's only lefthander, then came in to make Bill Dickey ground into a double play and Johnny Allen pitched hitless ball in the final frame. The Dodgers tried to recover the lost ground in their half of the eighth when Dixie Walker led off with a double in right center. Royal Air Force with a bowling party. Some of the Cadets are W. K.

The high score games of the week are increasing for both the ladies and the men at the Montgomery Bowling Center, for instance, the first week after reopening for the ladies 155 was high, and 215 high for the men. This week Mary Robertson has increased the ladies' high to 192. while George Monscher holds the week's high and also high game since reopening with 254. Other high games were rolled by R.

The 27-year-old southpaw star, who grew up on the streets of Brooklyn and became a great athlete for Long Island University, pitched magnificiently all the way and allowed only four hits. He was a trifle wild at the start, but got steadier as he went along. After walking one man in each of the first two innings he didn't give another pass during the rest of the game. The only hit off him in the first six innings was comic Joe Med-wick, a slugger of good repute, topped a curve and the ball rolled tantalizingly along the third base line while the Yankees hovered over it and waited for it go fouL Instead the ball stopped dead just inside fair territory about half way to third base and Medwick received credit for a single. The other safety, in addition to the two that made the run in the eighth, was a tremendous double by two-gun Pete Reiser against the center-field wall at the start of the seventh This brought the Brooklyn fans to their feet shouting and pleading for the Dodgers to score and win for Fitz. - But Russo was supreme, striking out Medwick and Dolph Ca-milli, the latter for the second time during the game. He also fanned Reiser to open the. ninth and make a total of five strikeouts during the game.' Fitzsimmons matched him in effectiveness as long as he was on the mound, although he gave up four hits during bis term. It was his artistry with these men on base that endeared him to the crowd. After Joe DiMaggio led off the second inning with a single for the great slugger's first hit of the series, Fitz made the next two men go out to Ca-milli and the third send a fly to the outfield. Red Rolfe led off the fourth with a single and John Sturm, who forced him, was picked off first by Owen, the Dodgers' quick little -catcher. Then came the big. emotional moments of the game. With two out in the fifth Joe Gordon tripled against the wall in front of the left field grandstand. The drive struck 10 feet up on a railing and bounced back to the field. It was the Yankees' only extra base blow of the game,, but it was a terrific swat that made the Dodger fans tremble at the thought of more to come. Phil Rizzuto was purposely passed and stole second to set up a threat ening situation, but Fitzsimmons, sweating until his uniform was as wet as if he had been under a shower, fanned Russo on four pitches. The heat was on Fitz even more intensely in the sixth, when Sturm opened with a single into short center and after Red Rolfe had fouled out trying to sacrifice, Tom Henrich walked on four bad balls. This brought DiMaggio to the plate and the throng quieted as Joe waited out a 3 and 2 count. But Fitz fed him a curve and he flied to right and Keller, the Yanks' home run king, followed with a measly grounder to Ca-milli. When Fitzsimmons left the Yanks saw their opening and bolted through it headlong. Rolfe's single to start the rally would have been a double except for a great stop by Rightfielder Dixie Walker. Henrich rifled a grounder through Camilli and even though Coscarart back- stopped, the Yankee beat the throw for a single. DiMaggio again waited out a full count and this time blasted another single into right center to score Rolfe and put Henrich on third. Keller followed with a liner to left center for another single and Henrich loped home while DiMaggio went to third. The fact that French and Allen stopped the Yanks from there on proved only incidental. The loss of Fitzsimmons was not the only body blow suffered by the Dodgers, however, and possibly In the long run not even the most important. For Billy Herman, Brooklyn's good-bitting second baseman, strained his side in batting practice and had to retire from the game in the fifth Inning. No one outside the club knew of his injury until after he had withdrawn, but It was learned later that his side was so sore that he might not be able to (Turn To Page 13) gomery Fair with five wins and one loss.
