Resurging Cowboys Clout Arizona Wildcats, 3 5-7 By JACK DURHAM REPORTER-NEWS SPORTS EDITOR A big and vicious Hardin-Simmons Cowboy eleven, strik ing with the speed and fury.of a Fatten Third Army tank corps, i roared back into the victory column at Fair Park stadium last night in vanquishing University of Arizona's Wildcats by 35 to 7 before a crowd of 6,500 home towners · who gaped with awe at this new Cowboy power machine in its first appearance on home soil. The impressive Cowboy victory left little doubt but that the 1947 Cowboy possesses even greater qualities than Coach Warren Woodson's Alamo Bowl champions of last year, de spite a 19 to 12 loss to San Jose's Spartans in an intersectional clash last week that ended a Rancher victory string of 22 c o n s e c u t i.y'e games. The Cowboys shook loose two ·peedsters in their slashing ground attack that had Arizona tacklers grabbing in thin air. Wilton Davis, STORY IN FIGURES H-SU Al I( First Downs 365 Yds.

"That both may prove equally as dangerous to Hardin-Simmons' foes as the memorable Rudolph "Little Doc" Mobley was of little doubt in the minds of the 6,500 who gathered in the warm, October night air, expecting to witness a battle royal that turned into a near rout. Virgil "Dugie" Turner, the Sweetwater law who claims the bruising all-professional Bulldog Turner, as his brother, let it be known that he is nearly equally as dangerous a runner as he rushed tpV the opening touchdown on the fourth play from scrimmage to ·et the Cowboys out in front. Power and speed were the Cowboy trademarks employed to stun the fighting Wildcats from start to- finish. · T h e Wildcats, fearing Davis would pull one of Ms kickoff re; turn touchdown jaunts for which ; he is already known, kicked off to the side and End Bob McChesney was downed on the Cowboy 33. Harvey broke around right end for 12--yards to the 45 and. Davis, taking one o£ the deadly shovel laterals from Johnson, raced for 19. yards to the Arizona 36. Dugie Turner broke thru right guard and traveled 36-yards to pay dirt before th[e somewhat amazed Wildcats Joiew what was happening. CATS STORM BACK (Arizona stormed back with «n offensive flash which appeared wpuld end only with a score as Hall got 15 yards on the first play frjbm scrimmage after the kickoff and Art Pollard picked up 14 more at right end, giving the visitors a first down on the Cowboy 24. But the Ranchers rared back on thj-ir haunches and dug in taking the ball on downs four plays later on their own 16. Johnson punted cm third down to Arizona's 34 and Pollard quick kicked over the HSU goal. -' Late in the first quarter Arizona's Shanty Hogan fumbled the white leather on his 25 stripe but in;the scramble the ball was knock 1 ed back to the Arizona 12 where the alert Davis pounced on it. In just : four plays, after Davis, Turner and J6hnson got to the 3-yard stripe, Davis took a wide lateral from Johnson and flashed around left end for the touchdown. This same lateral, with Johnson flipping the ball wide to the runner, proved good for yardage against the visitors whenever it appeared. Coach Mike Casteel fired in an entire new eleven at this stage- but they too felt the sting of the .powerful Rancher attack early in the second stanza. After the Wildcats' Art Pollard had booted to midfield and a roughing penalty set the 'Pokes back another 15, the Hickory Street boys began to move again. Turner, in; two tries, had a first on the 45 arid Davis, wiggling and squirming loose from tackier after tackier, picked up, 14 and a first down on the Arizona 40,' as the period ended. SCORE A G A I N Turner smashed for 10 as the second round opened, but another IScyard penalty set them back to the Arizona 46. Quarterback Al Johnson, the old reliable around whom, the Rancher attack functions, dropped back and lossed a 24*yard pass to Bob McChesney, whose catch was of Ihe sensational nature, and Harvey, who · was rushed in from the bench, put his heels to work for 10 at. left end, going to the 12. Da^is" and big for the marker. Moments later after the Cowboy: had recovered another Arizona fumble they were on the Wildca 8 stripe, but another holding penalty put a crimp in their touch down drive. The Arizonans surged back in the third frame to tally on a drive beginning on their own 47. Fre( Enke Jr.. a substitute left hal who came in to share what Arizona offensive brilliancy there was with Fullback Charlie Hall, sparked the Wildcat scoring drive. He tossed one 17 yard pass, to Hall then hit End John Smith with a 11-yard toss, while lugging the hall for 5 himself on one try.2 Quarterback Shanty Hogan used the quarterback sneak-to go over from the two and Joe Goff added the point from placement. It was enough to arouse the Cowboy ire--already aflame over the San Jose loss. The Cowpokes struck back after taking the short kickoff to the Wildcat 44. Davis squirmed for 12 at left end and Turner Troke loose at tackle again for 17 yards. Davis and Turner alternated in going to the 4, and the Austin freshman plugged over from there. The final Cowboy tally was the one that stole the show as it brought out beautiful blocking and teamwork with Harvey doing a brilliant piece of running. H A R V E Y GETS LOOSE Hardin-Simmons had stopped another Arizona threat on the nine yard line and iri an exchange of punts,.got possession of the ball on the Arizona 45. Ray Troutman lost a .yard at tackle, then Harvey streaked around back beautifully right end, to his left with his mates surging in front of him in a blocking exhibition led by Co-Captain Bullet Cook, whizzed 46 yards'to the final stripe. Harvey shook off several tackier on his run, which had the pres box scouts scratching their'head after seeing Davis explode wit his speed earlier. "End Bob McChesney displaye one other great pass snagging ex hibition back in that second peripc a 22-yard heave from Johnson. Th big gold shirted eleven put it forward passing secrets on th shelf after the first two periods however, and did not take to th airways a-single time in the tjvo quarters. Big Tommy Proctor's toe ac counted for each and every on of the extra points in this conteS that saw the Cowboys make bu few mistakes and emerge as big ger threats than ever to marcl hack to that coveted Border Con ference crown.

Stale Dumps Dons By 21 to 14 SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 11--ifl-- Aggressive Mississippi State, scoring touchdowns in the last three periods and playing heads-up foot- hall all the way, turned in a 21 to H upset win over hitherto undefeated University of San Francisco today. The Maroons from the Old South ran the bulkier Dons dizzy with a devastating ground attack. It was the fourth straight victory, for Mississippi State over San Francisco since they started their series. Two fleet, hard-running halfbacks, Shorty McWilliams and Harper Davis paced the Maroons. They rolled up long gains, tackled fiercely and McWilliams' punting was a big factor. was intercepted by Graveley on his own 45. Graveley sped down the sidelines 23 yards after the catch to the McMurry 32 to set up Hardin's first half score. Jack Barry passed to Graeley for 20 yards to the 12 and after two plays lost two yards,, with Truman Nix slipping through to nail Williams for a loss on second down, Hardin's Jimmy Williams dropped back with beautiful protection to toss a 14-yard touchdown pass to Graeyley, who made a diving catch as he fell across the goal line. Bobby Rogers' extra point try was blocked, and the clubs went to the showers five plays later for half time intermission. Hardin came back strong in the third period, driving 64. yards in 14 plays, including two important passes for 7 and one thirty yards to score the first time it got the ball. Joe Dean Tidwell, Hardin's powerful line-plunger drove over from the 2-yard line for the first of his two scores of the night. Rogers kicked the-first of his :wo successful extra point attempts .o put Hardin into a 13-0 lead. I N D I A N S BOUNCE BACK McMurry came right b a c k , chalking up its first down of the night on the first play after the next kickoff, Sampson driving over eft tackle for 12 yards to his own 41. Regans, however, was smothered for big losses as he was badly ·ushed on attempts to unleash his southpaw passes so Vernon Townsend dropped back to kick. His long 43-yard punt was fumbled and end Wes Daniel fell on t on the Hardin 45 to set up McMurry's second scoring threat of he night. Sampson carried five straight times for 24 yards to give McMurry second down and 2 yards o go on Hardin's 11 as the quarter :nded. But- the Hardin line buckled' to start the fourth quarter as it spill- id Sampson and Bob Reilly for mccessive three-yard losses to the .7. Daniel then dropped Town- iend's long fourth-down pass on he goal line to end the potential ouchdown. After Hardin kicked out and Mc- tlurry drew a 15-yard clipping pen- Ity, the visiting Indians complet- d a Townsend to Hall pass for yards to the Hardin 38. The hreat died quickly however as ack Barry intercepted a Townend heave on his own 15 and re- urned it beautifully to midfield. lardin then started a 50-yard rive for touchdown No. 3 com- leting on a 16-yard pass to the IcMurry 24 and a 23-yard toss the one to cover most of the ardage. Tidwell went over from he McMurry two after Hardin had rawn an offsides penalty.

ACC 'Cats Roll to Fourth ight; Bop BUGS, 14-0 By DICK ELAM GEORGETOWN, Oct. 11 -- Abilene Christian college Wildcats, aided by a rockwall defense that never Jet the Southwestern Pirates penetrate inside the Abilenians 23- yard line, kept their unbeaten record unblemished as they powered over Southwestern university l'4-O here tonight. While the Cats were demobilizing the Buccaneers' offense the visitors accounted for tallies in the first and second halves. The clinching touchdown came in Ihe fourth quarter on Bill Carter's 5-yard run over left guard, the longest and most sensational play if the hard-fought Texas conference :ilt that saw nine penalties assessed. Carter went over his own left guard on a quick opening T play, sicked up three blockers, and using :hem worked past mid-field where le found the sidelines and followed it to the goal. The first ACC tally came in the second quarter, Mick Mason push ing over' from the one-yard lln to culimate a Cat drive from th Southwestern 38-yard line. Th Cats, who had been threatehln, throughout the period, look th ball across Iri six plays during th march. L I . t t 1 e. Johnny Mason Mick's younger brother, f r o m Plainvlcw, aided'the big drive wit! two twisting, swivel hipped runs one good for 10 yards and the btlie netting/eight'. Redheaded Charlie Morris kick cd both of the. extra points. The score might have been 21 ti 0 had not it' 1 'been for an bfficia ruling. In the third quarter V. T Smith broke loose on a double re verse from the Pirates' 25-yard line, and aided by a brilliant run ning-block by Earl G. Wolsbn went all the way. The official called clipping on Wilson's important block and the ball went back to the' 45-yard stripe. Although speedster V: T. Smith Cadets, Illinois Battle to Draw NEW YORK, Oct.. 11--«_A pow- rful Illinois eleven pushed Army all over Yankee stadium in oday's biggest gridiron battle, but Point defended their goal line ten- ciously and at the conclusion it le rough struggle . before 65,000 le two undefeated elevens settled or a scoreless tie. Repeatedly the_Rose Bowl champions from Champaign drove deep into Cadet territory, once, missing a field goal from the 15-yard "line and again piling up on the Army seven, while Hie Cadets, showing no passing attack whatever, made only one puny gesture it the III- ni goal. Army thus completed Its 31st successive game without a loss and only two scoreless ties to mar the great string, but few of those in today's crowd were ready to place the latest model from the Plains in quite the same class with the Blanchard-Davis machine of the past three seasons. The Cadets did not complete a single pass today, and attempted only one in the second halt. ..Illinois, itself working on an eight - game winning s t r e ' a k , brought East a rugged, hard-tackling line which stopped Army's running.attack cold when it counted. Their big and fast backs, led by Russ.Sieger, and: Art Duffle- meier, repeatedly threatened to rip through to scores, but never quite brought it · off. Jim..Rawers, rangy Army end, saved .the day for Army with .one fine tackle i n . the-first quarter.
