Dukes Leave ror row ornor Says: Pitt Regains Much Prestige With Its Fighting Comeback By HARRY KECK, SPORTS EDITOR SpsiSports Score Thai Saved Soccer Win Streak Pitt Panthers will be out of their back-breaking schedule. at the Stadium next Saturday, SEVENTEEN One more game and the the woods, over the crest of That battle is with Fordham r' and, holding last their after the showing they made Ohio State to a 21-14 score Saturday, in a struggle in which fighting qualities in the face of adversity won them the hearts of the local fans for the first time this season, the Pitts will have plenty of moral support. With five games now behind them, the Panthers have yet to achieve a victory. They have lost to all four of their Western Conference foes and also to Duke, but they have been improving with experience, and, barring accident, stand a good chance of winning all of their last three games, against below-standard Nebraska. Penn State and MONDAY.

i FOB SPOKTS 1 1 1 DICK FISHER Carnegie Tech. One player, Halfback Dick Fisher, spelled the difference between victory and defeat for the Panthers in Saturday's thriller with the Buckeyes. His running and kicking were sensational, yet he was not far ahead of Pitt's awakened Edgar Jones, who set up one touchdown with a march from his own goal line to that of the visitors and ran back an intercepted pass 45 yards for the other and also did some remarkable kicking. Coach Paul Brown, of the Scarlet-clad Ohioans, had nothing but praise for the Panthers and their coach, Charley. Bowser, at the finish, and the spirit of the Panthers should be at a new high as a result of holding Duke to a 27-7 score and following with that fine stand against Ohio State, after losing to Purdue, 6-0, and then taking those 40-0 and 39-0 drubbings from Michigan and Minnesota.

They know now, at least, that their cause is not a hopeless one. Several other Pitt players, notably Jack Durishan, starting at left tackle; Ralph Fife, the great backer-up right guard; Frank Saksa, converted into a plunging fullback, and George Allshouse, the center, stood out along with Jones, who gave the greatest one-game performance of his career. The Panthers have been moulded in the fire of one of the toughest schedules ever played by any team and if they had had a breather or two in between their hard games they would not be without victory today. Dukes Draw More Than 20,000 That interest in college football is far from dead here was evidenced by the fact that more than 70,000 fans turned out to see the Pitt-Ohio State and Duquesne-Villanova games in the same day. The Dukes continued their undefeated march at the expense of Villanova, but hardly added to their prestige as they capitalized on only one scoring opportunity to win, 7-0, although they made 17 irst downs against one.

They gained some consolation, however, from attracting 20,698 paid customers for their night game, justifying the shift from the afternoon, when they would have been lucky to draw half that many in opposition to the game at the Stadium. Carnegie Tech's collapse for a 27-0 defeat by Case in the rain at Cleveland on Friday night was not anticipated. It was thought the Tartans would be able to hold their own in that company.

Gaels Whip Gonzaga SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 3.

(AP.) St. Mary's Gaels slid through deep mud to roll up a 26-to-0 win over an outclassed Gonzaga football eleven here yesterday. Rain poured down before and all through the contest. Only about 300 fans braved the dismal weather. The first half went scoreless.

Gonzaga, coupling fairly strong running plays with good passes, reached St. Mary's eight-yard marker In the opening period. The northern squad also held the ball eight yards from goal in the last quarter, but could make no headway. The Gaels, proving themselves superior mudders, clicked off two touchdowns in the third period and two more in the final period. The initial score was from the 36-yard marker.

The second-started from Gonzaga's 46, ending with a 26-yard run by Odlslo, fullback. The lineup: Po. Gnnxaga St. Mary'i Curry Hen son Zuhey Sheale Clemon Power RuekUKky Arabian L.E, Lnnrsrto L.T. uonnora Barry Jiiton Nemlerenn TVenendorf Clark flnoriwln c.

The mighty Bears, previously unbeaten, sank to second place In the Western Division, while their former place on the throne was taken over by the Packers. The Washington Redskins climbed to the top in the East as the New York Giants were spilled for the second consecutive Sunday. Washington, winner of the Eastern title a year ago, disposed of Pittsburgh, 23 to 3, and the Chicago Cardinals made the Red skins' rise possibly by pulling down the Giants, 10 to 7. Other contests saw the Detroit Lions push the Cleveland Rams Into the Western half cellar, 14 to 0, and Brooklyn subdued Phil adelphia. 15 to 6.

Castle Shan non's soccer team maintained its undefeated Keystone League rec otd by handing a 4-1 defeat to Olendale on the latter's field before the largest crowd of the season yesterday. In other games In the circuit Gallatin recorded its fifth con secutive victory, a 1-0 decision over the French Club, at Canons- burg, and the Morgan Strassers and Heidelberg's Golden Tornado battled to a 1-1 tie at Bridgeville, Manager Whitey Kratoval's Glendale aggregation went into action seeking its initial victory. but Shannon turned in its best performance of the season and fully deserved its victory. Shannon won the toss and took advantage of a strong wind in the first half.

With Pesarslck playing well. Shannon scored twice in the first half, Steve Misgalla and Au gie Behling smashing the ball Into the net. In the second half, the home team put on pressure and, in an effort to clear a hard shot from Gossett. Harrison Cliecci, the Shannon center halfback, kicked the ball through his own goal. The visitors then took control.

Grivnow scored the third goal and Just before the end Andy Shoats tallied from a penalty kick. The French Club put on a surprising display against Gallatin, which was an overwhelming favorite to win. Earlier in the season it had beaten the Gunners, 7-2. Yesterday Garcia was forced to stage a brilliant display in the Gallatin goal to prevent his team from being beaten. Bernie vlsnlch scored the only goal from a free kick.

Carnegie Tech will engage in its last battle prior to the finale with Pitt when it faces Cincinnati's Bear cats at Cincinnati on Saturday afternoon. Duquesne ran its victory streak to six games for the season Saturday night when it trounced Villa- nova, 7-0, before a throng of more than 20,000 fans. The Dukes were none too impressive after they rolled up a touchdown and put away the game In the open ing period. PerhaDS it is just as well that they got this bad one out of their system.

St. Mary's, while not one of the best teams in the country, will prove tough to hurdle. WILDCATS LACK OFFENSIVE Duquesne's victory over Villa- nova came on a 79-yard drive which ended when Quarterback Gene Ball sneaked over from the half-foot line, Villanova failed to make an offensive show, getting one first down and netting only 22 yards in rushing. The Pitt battle with Ohio State was one of those thrilling crowd pleasers. The Bucks, who have lost only to Northwestern, moved to an easy touchdown in the first began to vision another drubbing for Pitt after the Ohioans scored another six-pointer in the second period.

But the Panthers happened to have something left, something in the person of Eddie (Special De livery) Jones, who sparked a drive that carried the length or. the field, starting with an 18-yard klckoff return, rrankie saKsa ended the drive when he bowled over from the two-yard line and the Pitts were back in the "ball game. Ohio rushed back for another tally in the third ceriod as Dandy Dick Fisher, a 'whale of a halfback, hit his stride. Ohio made It 19-7, then made the mistake of pitching in its own territory. Jones speared a Fisher pass on the Ohio 45 and scampered back for a touchdown.

In the final period. Jones again covered a ball in the end zone, but this time he was in his own end zone and the ball he covered was his own blocked kick, giving Ohio two additional points. DUKES RULE FAVORITE On a basis of past performances, the city's grid record for the coming weekend should read much the same as last week's, a victory for Duquesne and defeats for Pitt and Tech. St. Mary's has won four in a row since losing a 31-0 opener to a badly battered California eleven.

However, the Dukes, with only two hurdles between them and a perfect season, should be In fine condition for the contest. They leave tomorrow morning on the long jaunt. Fordham, which is eyeing a bowl bid, will come to Pittsburgh with successive victories over Southern Methodist, North Carolina, West Virginia. Texas Christian and Purdue. Cincinnati has won four and lost three, but figures to add Tech to Its list of victims, particularly after the 27-0 setback the Tartans suffered at the hands of Case in Cleveland last week.

Thiel kept pace with the nation's undefeated teams last week, but gave up Us first points of the lead in the Eastern division League race. After having given the Redskins a 24-20 scare at Forbes Field on October 12, Coach Buff Donelli's crew expected to have a winning chance in their Improved form yes terday, but It was not to be. They were put behind the eight ball by the forward passing of Sammy Baugh right at the start and never emerged from that LOSERS LACK SPARK Whether It was because they had that rundown feeling after their hectic battle with the Chi cago. Bears at Chicago last week or because the Redskins were that much better was a debatable point. Certainly the Pittsburghers failed to explode as they did against the Bears, although they never quit fighting and made a scoreless stalemate of the second half until they threw a gambling forward pass in the final minutes or play, and saw it Intercepted by Vic Carroll, who ran it back for a touchdown.

The Washington team grabbed off the lead in its wheel as the New York Giants went down to their second straight defeat, at the hands of Jimmy Conzelman's Chicago Cardinals in New York, 10 to 7.

LONG RUN SCORES The Redskins struck fast late In the first quarter for their first touchdown, moving 69 yards in four plays, with Willis Moore rounding right end on a reverse for 41 yards and the tally. Mas- terson added theextra point. The Washington team was in mldfield as the period ended.

A long pass by Baugh to Millner put the ball on the steelers' is, but a clipping penalty set the Skins back and Aldrich kicked a placement field goal from the 17 to make the score 10-0. The Steelers got the ball in mldfield on the next klckoff and Jones put it on the 12 with a 33-yard run and, on final down, Nic- colal placcklcked a field goal for his team only points. MISS THREE GOAL TRIES Just before the end of the half the Washingtons intercepted a pass and ran It back to the Steel- er 33 and Baugh completed three short passes and then faked one and ran to the one-yard line, from where Farkas carried the ball over. Aguirre's boot made the score 17-3. Then the Redskins missed three field goal attempts, one from the 30-yard line by Agulrre, near the end of the third quarter; another by the same bootcr from the 23 Bears Being Beaten for the only touchdown.

Duke took Georgia Tech in stride, 14-0. Tulahe's 34-14 defeat of Vanderbilt, which the week before had walloped Princeton by a landslide score, was surprising, as was Temple's 31-0 defeat by Boston College. The high-scoring Penn team was unable to untrack itself in losing, 13-6, to Navy, which the week before had been held to a scoreless tie by Harvard. Nebraska went down again, 12-6, before Kansas State; Iowa defeated Indiana, 13-7, and North Carolina bowed by the same score to North Carolina State. Columbia, beaten by Army the week before, rallied to defeat Cornell, 7-0; Harvard needed an 87-yard touchdown run by Franny Lee to overcome Princeton's four points from safeties, and Yale lost, 7-0, to Brown.

Syracuse proved its power by beating Wisconsin, 27-20, and Stanford remained in the lead for the Rose Bowl assignment by crushing Santa Clara, 27-7. it-Upsets in Pro League Two big upsets In the National Professional Football League yesterday all but stole the play from the week-end doings of the college teams. It appears to be obvious that neither the Chicago Bears nor the Pittsburgh Steelers did themselves any good in their ferocious battle against each other in Chicago a week ago. for both suffered a tremendous letdown yesterday, when the Bears lost to the Green Bay Packers, 16-14, while the Steelers failed to come up for their game with the Washington Senators, who moved into the lead in the Eastern sector with a 23-3 victory while the New York Giants, beaten a week ago by the Brooklyn Dodgers, suffered their second straight defeat, at the hands of the Chicago Cardinals, who two weeks ago defeated Brooklyn and last week lost to Philadelphia, Not only were the Giants ousted from the lead in their section, but the Bean were knocked out of the lead in the Western circuit. The Bears now have a record of five victories and one defeat while the Packers lead with seven and one.

The Steelers did well in holding the Redskins scoreless In the second half except for a touchdown on an Intercepted pass in the final minute and in decisive defeat still were a much better team than they were before Buff Donclll took them In charge as coach.
