Bible, in his coaching: days has often said, it is the finish Thai counts. It was the Bay.or finish thai counted out the Uni- versitv oi Arkansas football team at Munv Stadium Saturday afternoon before a throng of 12,000 screaming fans. This I'niversity of Arkansas team, famei Ur getting a small load, and then holding it the rest of the wav uith unyielding defense, got that lead Saturday afternoon got nine bit points largely as a result of or.e mightly 67-yard quick-kick, and Arkansas held that nine-point l^ad as the last quarter started. When the final shot was fired to end the stormy game, the score vva^ Bavloi 17; Arkansas 9. The old tradition that Arkansas canno win a football game in Waco from Baylor was preserved. It was preserved by a group of battlers as great as you would care to see, boys that refused to be discouraged by heart-breaking incidents Penalt*e* Hurt Bruin« There were so many breaks agamst the Bruins during the first three periods that it seemed that some Divine Power had decreed that Baylor could not win this game. Baylor in the first three Quarters had done everythin" but score. It had lugged the hall up and down the greensward, but something always happened, most of the time it being a penalty.

Oct. 11 — I UP—A1 Dimarco, a substitute quarterback with a whip for right arm, pulled the University of Iowa off the Big Nine Conference floor Saturday, leading his team to a 27-to-14 football vic- I tory over Indiana before 51,150 | homecoming fans. Three times in the first half ho slung a football to Emlen Tunnell, Garrett Hill, Pa., halfback, and three times Tunnell grabbed the ball and crossed the Indiana goal line. Ron Headington kicked the extra points after each. That was all the margin that Iowa needed to win, although it added one more touchdown in the fourth period. lor Ar- kansa* 15 5 1? 1? 6 7 3 1 40 fis 22X 5» •» 100 1 40 2630 Tucker and Russ (Combine to Give Ramblers Verdict NEW ORLEANS. Oct. 11 -AP— Arnold Tucker, who quarterbacked Army’s great team last year, and an unknown halfback named Jack Russ combined to give Randolph Field Ramblers a 33-to-6 football victory here Saturadv over the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station Comets. Russ ran 42 yards for one touchdown and scored two others on passes from Tucker. The former west Pointer sneaked for another touchdown, intercepted three*Navy passes and turned in an excellent punting job. A scant crowd of 10,000 expressed its disappointment at Randolph’s failure to use Felix “Dock” Blanchard, former Army All-America fullback, who appeared on local gridirons as a hig<i school star. But chants of “we want Blanchard” availed little as the star nursed a twisted ankle on the side lines. The game was played for the benefit of sufferers from the hurricane which hit Florida and the Gulf Coast last month. It was in the fourth quarter, however, when Baylor got the advantage of the slight wind. Arkansas had had it in the second and third and when Baylor went into the fourth quarter.* it seemed to take a new lease on p'aying life. 1 The manner in which it played in that quarter was a tribute indeed to * he fin« condition of the team— a tribute to the fine coaching and j hard work of Bob Woodruff and his assisants. Hog* Are HelplPM In tr at fourth period Arkansas was helpless, impotent. inadequate.; and after all was lost, the rod fhiru, like the boys we knew in our grammar school days, wanted to pick up their marbles and start a good old gang fight. They were sluggng and using many other unetHca1 tactics in that last period, and wo suppose that Baylor decided to reciprocate, for as the game was rearing tho close it became rougher and rougher. It was tho first time in conference history that Arkansas lost a load that it attained. It was the first time this season that Arkansas has been scored upon. To score on the Porkers, the Bear line pushed the Porker line all over the held. Indeed, in that last quarter, the Bruins picked up the tired Porker linemen and tossed them right back into the laps of their backfield. The Baylor boys really should ; not have been slugged by the Arkansas boys, boeause late in the game, the Bruin backs without charge were giving the Porkers free rides from one to 10 yards j on nearly every play. One of the Baylor backs would smash through, ar.d a Porker would hop on, but tho back would just lopo along a few more yards before going down under the load. Cljde Scott Is Groat Clyde Scott, the Smackover Kid. was a wonder for Arkansas in the first half, both on the offense and defense. He continued to shme in the second half. He saved a touchdown in the first half with a great interception behind his goal line, giving the Porkers the ball out on the 20 and getting them out of a deep hole. He started in running wide around Baylor s left end. Jim Ison, Ashland. Ky„ product, played a most sensational game for Bavlor at right end. He was tho best wing on the field in this game All of the Baylor tackles, guards and centers played fine foo*r>all, there being a continual string of substitutes going in, howe\or, and it was a difficult to keep up with these linemen, but all started, because the best Arkansas had to offer could do nothing with that good old Baylor line, which on this occasion was far more than a song. Porkor Line Weaken* Auto Racing Crown To He Settled at Downs ARLINGTON, Oct. 11 AP Assurance that tho National Automobile Racing Championship would be decided Oct. 26 at Arlington Downs was roceived Saturday by Racing International with receipt of entries from Ted Horn of Paterson, N. J., and Bill Holland of Bridgeport, Conn.. loading contenders for the American Automobile Association crown. Horn is the 194fi national champion and currently is loading tho 3 947 campaign with 1,690 points. Holland, Indianapolis runner-up, has 1,580 points and can wrest the lead, and the title, from Horn at tho Arlington Downs event. The Downs classic will ho the final AAA rare of 1917, according to an announcement bv Jim Lamb of Washington, D. C., secretary of the AAA contest board. Rutgers Scores I pset NEW BRUNSWICK. N. .T., Oct. 11 AP -Underdog Rutgers de- | pàroiina foated Princeton 13 to 7 Saturday ¡ for the third timo in 78 years of the first and oldest intorcollogiate football rivalry in the United States. Both of Rutgers* previous victories were scored here, the first coming in 1869. 6-4. The second was in 1938, 20-18. California Bears Rock Badgers Of isconsin, 48-7 MADISON. Wise. Oct. 11—UP— California’s hard-driving Golden Bears already visualizing the Pacific Coast football championship and a Rose Bowl chance, rocked Wisconsin, 48-7. Saturday as Lynn “Pappy” Waldorf made a triumphant return to the Midwest. Waldorf’s team, which he built in his first season on the West Coast since resigning as tutor at Northwestern, could do no wrong. It rolled through, over and around the Badgers nearly at will after taking advantage of a break to score in the first two minutes of play. But it was a pair of reserve quarterbacks, thirn-slring Bob Celeri and fourth-string Tim Minahan who were tho scoring stars. Celeri Shows Passing Form Celeri, touted as the best passer on the California squad, was just that, connecting on four out of 10 passes with two of them good for touchdowns. Minahan, who played only part of the final quarter, hit on two out of two passes, with his second toss covernig 37 yards 'to Frank Vanderveen for six points. Earliei Vanderveen had nabbed a Celeri pitch for 57 yards and his first touchdown of the game. Even though California counted after one minute and 30 seconds of play it still looked like a ball game for the first period. Wisconsin’s five-man line was setting back the invading ball carriers for virtually no ground gains, but the pass defense was pitiful. Sparks Touchdown Drive Celeri sparked the second touchdown drive with two passes to Paul Kecklev for 55 yards, setting up a two-yard plunge bv George Fong for the score. The third score resulted from another Wisconsin fumble which California recovered. Those were the last breaks California received, and as it turned out they didn’t need those. In the second half thev counted on touchdown drives of 74 yards in four n’avs. 60 yards in five olays, and 77 in four plays. And although Clarence Self went 67 yards for Wisconsin’s lone scoro in the third period, none of the Badgers could muster anything else all day. Deacon Air Stars Baffle Tar Heels CHAPEL HILL, N.

Bud Lail, passed vaunted North Carolina sillv Saturday as Wake Forest staged an upset 19-7 victory over tho Tar Hools in a Southern Conference game.

The Oregon sqnad held the Bruins almost even in the first half but the talent-loaded Bruins (threw enough reserves into the play in the second half to wear down the small Webfoot team. Unable to pierce the strong I Bruin line regularly, Oregon do- I ponded on the rifle-liko passes of Quarterback Norm van Brocklin to keep them in the game. His | long heaves to End Dan Garza accounted for one touchdown and kept the Bruins jumping in the closing minutes of play. Tho game was only eight minutes old when Hoiseh made tho first score. In the second period the Bruins marched 53 yards in four plays to score, Rossi plunging over from the four. But the Oregonians came back in tho same period on a pass from van Brocklin to Garza which advanced the ball from tho Oregon 30 to the Bruin three where Bob Sanders scored. In the closing minutes of the third period the Bruin power began to tell and they worked the ball down to Oregon’s seven whore Chuck Page plunged over on the first play of the fourth period. The Bruins came back a few minutes later to march 42 yards in five plays for another score with sub Quartorback Ray Nagol sneaking over for the touchdown. Tittle Arm Beats Aggie Crew , 19-13 I.ast-Quarter Tosses ♦ Bring LSI Decision BATON ROUGE, La.. Oct. 11— j UP—Louisiana State's "meai ticket,” Y. A. Tittle, pitched the Bayou Tigers to a 19-to-13 victory over a surprisingly tough Texas A. and M. College football team Saturday night before a crowd of 35,000 . Tittle’s accurate right arm whipped the Aggies down in the final period after they had rolled into a 13-12 lead in three indecisive quarters of play. Pounding Zollie Toth, the Tiger 214-pound fullback, cracked the Cadet defense for two LSU touchdowns, but it was Tittle’s pitching in the clutch that spelled victory. 73-Yard Scoring Hoaves He passed to Dan Sandifer on a 73-yard touchdown play in the second period and the Tigers led 12-6 at the intermission.
