NOTRE DAME STADIUM. Nov 1—Pat Page.s’ Hoosiers took a 27 to 0 plastering from Notre Dame this afternoon, but he will tell you in case you haptiened to ask him that he was well satisfied with the after noon’s work. H.

Knute had hoped to shoot his .shock absorber.s in. roll up a few touchdowns and let It go at that. But you’d be surpri.sed to see how these plans went blooey. Rock had to call on Savoldi, Brill, Schwartz and the rest of the gang to roll Indiana to defeat. First String Called In. Notre Darne's shockers la.sted until the middle of the .second period, when the first team came bounding on the field. Even this outfit cDuld not make much of an impression while the Hoo.slers came down to the ‘20-yard mark before they were deadened. It was somewiiat different In the second half because that Rockne backfield had started to click. It started when Carldeo curried Ross’ kick out of bounds on tha Page 39- yard line.

Eleven Straight Defeats. It was the eleventh consecutive defeat for Iowa State footbftU teams this year and last and came after the Cyclone.s started off in front, scoring first and holding the lead until the fourth quarter. It wa.s in this {jcriod that Oklahoma utilized a pas.sing and plunging attack which gave them two touchdowns. Cyclones Srore First, Iowa State, in the first period, apiieared to far ouUlass the Soon­ ers Taking the kickoff on their own two yard line, the Anu's boys started a drive tliat took them, with only one intercliange of punts to Oklahoma’s two yard line. There Tegland fumbled and the Sooners recovi red, but still were In hot water after Mills kicked short and out of bound.s to the Stxmer 29-yard line. Tlie Cyclones made 10 yards through the line, but lost the ball, ending the scoring threat. But the Ame.s club came back just a.s .strong in the .second season, recovering an Oklahoma fumble and getting off a 24-yard {»ass for a touchdown early in the period. Hie extra point was added.
