Actually Pampa was only beaten by two touchdowns but Palo Duro added conversion points after each tally while the Harvester* failed on their three at' tempts.

The winners roamed 80 yards in six quick ptays for the first score. Big play in the march was a .50-yard aerial from Byrd to halfback Gordon Nelson to the Pampa 12. Thre« plays later, Nelson scooted around left end from the five for the pay-off. Byrd blasted ever right tackle for the extra points.

Fullback Dtirwood Bennett skirted left end for th« final eight yards, Donnie W«lton added the extra points. But Pampa gathered its forces and scored quickly on a 48-yard pass from Crossland to halfback Halph Palmer, who caught the ball on the 30 and outran a Palo Duro defender to the goal line, The biggest play in the 85-y a r d drive came at the locals 45 when needing a foot on fourth down, halfback Mike Stewart rammed Over left guard for seven yards.

Nix added the points on a keeper. Byrd took the second half kickoff and rambled 8? yards in 11 seconds for another touchdown. Nelson's extra points enabled the Dons to fashion a ,12-6 margin, But Pampn showed its determination by coming back with a 63 yard scoring march Gains by Hebert and fullback Jerry Glover and a 15-yard screen pass found the Harvesters setting up shop at Palo Duro's 29. Hebert journeyed to the 22 and Rickey Stewart ran to, the IS, Glover and M. Stewart worked the ball to the four where M. Stewart rammed over right tackle for the six {mints.

(UP)—Sophomore Jerry Rhome turned the tame Southern Methodist Mustangs into a stampeding horde in the final minutes Saturday to personally spur the Ponies to an 8-7 Southwest Conference victory over Texas Tech. It was the first varsity starting tangs' touchdown explosion drive assignment for the slender home grown youngster, son of a Dallas hi^h school coach. He ran for 46 yards and threw for 24 more in an 80-yard surge that brought victory from what had .appeared al most certain defeat.

It marked the first time in 79 games that Iowa was held 'scoreless—going back'.to the last game of the 1952 campaign when Notre Dame came off with a 27-0 triumph. It 'also snapped the Hawk- eyes' six-game winning streak, four this season. It was a miserable day weath- erwise, with a steady downpour pelting Ross-Ade Stadium, and it > worked in Purdue's favor. Iowa's brilliant Matt Szykowny failed to uncork that sizzling passing attack that carried him to the top " of the heap in the league. Purdue scored a touchdown after a pass interception in the first period and added a field goal in the third after a fumble recovery. The loss knocked Iowa from the big, ten lead and gave Purdue its first loop win in two tries, Score by Periods Purdue 603 0—9 Iowa 000 0—0 Texas Tech had completely dominated the g*me on the ground and in' the • air, • but had been forced to use a 35-yard interception return by sophomore halfback David Rankin for its only score. .Rhome erased that with « seven-yard toss to another first-year halfback, Tom Sherwin, with just over two minutes to play, and with his pass to still another sophomore, Billy Gannon/ for the. two- point conversion. It was third and 13 on the SMU 27 when Rhome sent SMU into its famed spread formation for the first time. He hit, .Gannon with a 17-yard pass, theh. ran. 12. 12, II, and -11 yards in a hurry up surge to the Texas Tech seven- all from the spread formation. Until that time, Tech. had driven to the SMU 30 and , 20-yard lines without being ible to push SMU 'ail the way back. Twice Tech's H. L. Daniels tried field goals from the 11 and 26- yard Unas, 'but both times a stiff crosswind blew the ball off target. It was after the last try from the 2« that SMU caught fire. Up to there its running assault had netted but 73 yards and its overhead attack but 37 yards against the Tech defense which had helped upset Texas Christian and Baylor on successive weekends. Coolidge Hunt, Tech's conference leading ground gainer a year ago, blasted 117 yards through the SMU defense, but when- the clutch yardage was needed even he couldn't dent the Mustang line. 54th VRAR SUNDAY, OCTOBER 21, INI Texas Aggies Crush Baylor Eleven 23-0 COLLEGE STATION, Tex.
