BY CY" SHERMAN. WEST POINT, N. Y Nov. 21 Any ideas or aspiration which Cornhusker football followers may have been nurturing that Nebraska might climax its 1928 season with a formidable bid for highest national honors tonight may be consigned tp the ash heap of disappointed opes. The red - jereeyed Hunkers had their chance today on the plains of the West Point Military Academy, stacking up against the future generals of Uncle Sam's army in sixty minutes of frenzied battling, and the final reckoning found the mule hee - hawing over a 13 to 3 triumph. But Com h linker football need not inscribe aught of apology in the record of the afternoon's proceedings, for that same record would disclose that the Jluskers were making pace. 3 to 0. at half - time and but for the pestiferous activi ties of one "Red" Cagle and a In the fates and fortunes of the combat, Nebraska rooters, not the Army mule, might well have done most of the hee - hawing tonight. Mr. Cagle. serving his fourth season In Soldier moleskin, titer preliminary term of football toil in a college down in Dixie, was the artful gent who dd most of the dirt to the Nebraska cause. This red - thatched gladiator has been pretty well ballyhooed this faU as all - American material of super grade, and after several hundred Nebraska supporters had Inspected the speed and football wizardry of the Army team's backfield ace. It was quite unanimously agreed in that portion of the stands where the Nebraska folk were gathered that this Cagle fellow needs no horn - blowing in bolstering the claim the carmine - haired youth In Army moleskins is the coqk - of - the - walk In American football. Smothered In First Half. Cagle however, had all sorts of trouble In setting up the pins to put on his stuff. He started the ball game with a surprise forward pass while the scrimmage line was deep in Army territory and he per - petated considerable running around in circles during a first half. During v this period the Cornhuskers were waging a sturdy defense which had the Soldier boys and their stellar performer prett ywell smothered. But "Red" positively declined to be denied. Early in the third period, when the Army had the ball Hist across mid field in Nebraska territory, the Soldiers faked a double pass and reverse play around end. That sort of stuff was a clever coverup for the subsequent proceedings as Red suddenly darted out through a quick opening in the right wjng of the Husker line and squared away In the direction of the Nebraska goal. "Red Breaks Away. Unfortunately, it happened that "Red" had the ball tucked under one arm and. quite as unfortunately, he was making tracks so rapidly and squirming away from tacklers with such pernicious, dexterity that nary a Husker tackier could lay as much as a careless hand on the galloping ghost in Army duds. The net result was an Army touchdown. Captain 8prague fis - led the attempted kick of the ex tra point, but the Soldiers were ouU in front, 8 to 3, and that three - point lead was quite sufficient to stand up for a victory the remainder of the journey.

The combat did not Continued on PliSeFivej By Day and By Night, Cadets Held Edge Says U. P. Writer BY FRANK GETTY. (United Press Sports Edtotr.) WEST PONT, N. Y.. Nov. 24 First by day and then by night, the Army proved Nebraska's master, defeating the hitherto unbeaten Csrnhuskers in convincing fashion, 1 3 to 3, before 25,000 spectators in West Points picturesque new stadium on the hilltops above the Hudson. . . . While It was light, Chris Cagle broke loose and ran 37 yards for a touchdown. After darkness fell, and the players were indistinguishable on the trampled gridiron. Hutchinson threw a long forward pass to Allen for a second Army score. The Cornhuskers, who have, swept undefeated across the football fields of the middlewest, came to the plains of West Point in anticipation of a pleasant husking bee, but Cagle grabbed the red ear and then enjoyment was all the Army's. Victory Well Earned. The triumph of the Cadets was well earned, for they outplayed their heavier opponents in every period except the second, in wnicn uiair Sloan booted over a 30 - yard placement kick for Nebraska's only score, "pfhis field goal in the second quarter followed two great defensive ef forts by the Cadets Inside their 10 - .ard line. Chris Cagle was badly hurt in tackling Rowley and was replaced by Hutchinson, who had to punt from behind his own goal. The ball went out at Army's 35 - yard line and the Cornhuskers opened up a fast running attack, Sloan and Howell advancing the ball to the Cadet's 10 - yard line, where the de fense again stiffened. On the fourth down, Howell and Sloan dropped back and the Nebraska fullback held the ball for his versatile teammate, who booted over a perfect placement. The Cadets had romped un - ehecked across the chalk marks in tht - first .period until they reached series of unfortunate breaks 3Doe IN THE EAST. At Weat Faint, Army, Us Krtruk, S.

Captain Spraeue missed the trv for goal, and the Army went out to hold its advantage. A' tack Lacked Versatility. Sloan's dashes for sizeable gains were offset by a lack of versatility in the Nebraska attack, and the stout defense against the drives of "Blue" Howell, visiting fullback.

The victory gave the Trojans no worse than a tie for the coast con - ference championship, with four i victories and one tie game with California. Williams made an auspicious return to the game after a two weeks' illness rolling up two touchdowns in short order at the start of the third period. t The first score came after Saunders had paved the way with a 35 yard jaunt through tackle, and the second came after a steady march down the field. Jess Hill, coming in for Saunders late in the period, dashed twenty - nine yards for a touchdown, for a third score.

It was the first time the two schools had met in football, and the third time Tech had fallen before Coach Chick Meehan's men.

The decisive defeat of Carnegie iTech, Illinois' triumph in the west ern conierence; (Harvard's Iirst victory over Yale since 1922; Princeton's upset at the, hands of the Navy and the tie played by Stanford and California, featured the Saturday football program in the United States. Carnegie Tech. having defeated Notre Dame and all other teams it met this year, was prepared to claim a national championship if successful against New York university at Pittsburgh. The final hurdle was a trifle too high for the Sklbos to clear and New York triumphed, 27 to 13. Upsets in "Big Ten, In the middle - west, Illinois dropped Ohio State, 8 to 0. while - Minnesota was trouncing Wisconsin, 6 to 0. The latter defeat ousted Wisconsin from the top rung of the Big Ten and enabled the lltl to claim a clean cut championship. Both teams have lost one game but Wisconsin has a tie to mar its record. Harvard literally ran wild against Yale at New Haven and the 17 to 0 victory achieved was the first the Crimson has celebrated in five years. In 1925 the teams played to a tie. but Yale won the other four contests. Princeton was an almost universal favorite over the Navy when the teams took the field at Philadelphia. The Tigers were not 'prepared, however, for the vicious attack, the middles produced, and lost, 9 to 0. A 71 yard run by Lloyd featured the contest. Army Spills Nebraska.

The Cornhusker - Army classic of the east had attracted Lincoln grid fans, who displayed no special desire to witness a high school football game.

California - Stanford Finish 13 - 13 After Thrilling Game MEMORIAL STADIUM, BERKELEY, NOV. 24 (INS) California 13; Stanford 13. Thus ended the most thrilling battle of the Pacific coast football season today played before the largest crowd of the year, approximately 100.000 souls. California led at the half 13 to 0. the result of one touchdown scored by Bancroft on a 76 yard run after an Intercepted pass and one scored Dy Avery who counted on a 20 yard forward pass on tne last piay oi the half. Cardinals To Rescue Stanford scored its first touchdown of the game In the third period on a concerted drive from the California 29 - yard line, Fentrup counting on a line plunge. The ty ing count came with dramatic suo - deness with less than a minute to play when Stanford made desperate by the trend of events, launcnea a persistent passing attack. Tne play that 1 counted was a 35 yard pass irom Simp kin to Fentrup, the latter caught the ball a scant foot from the end zone. California missed the first try forpoint and kicked the second. Stanford kicked the first and missed the second when a goal kick would have given a one point victory. Statistics of the game shows how even it was. In the first half each team made two first downs, Stanford made 50 yards on running plays to California's 41 and gained 16 yards on passes to California's 41 The Bears intercepted four for ward passes, one counting for a touchdown after a 76 yard run. Light Backs Score, When "Pop" Warner put in his light backs In the second half it was vastly different. Stanford registered 84 yards from running plays and 108 from passes. California made 29 yards on runningplays and completed one pass for 19 yards. Lincoln appeared to be the stronger eleven of the two and seemed to hold a small but very distinct edge over the low wis throughout the course of the fray. But appearances must be deceitful for the count in downs and net yardage gained, like the final score, was deadlocked. Both team claimed four first downs apiece and 69 yards in net gains. Bauer's Punting Excellent. Only in the punting department did the Red and Black show a marked superiority. Here the punt - mg of Bauer averaged 44 yards for 12 punts as compared to tne 71 yard average in 11 punts af Dun can, cedar Kama left tacicie. Bauer's kicking work was probably the feature of the same, nia Jar. nine boota averaging 52 yards while one was good for nearly 80. - cedar Ka trios exhibited a tougn forward wall, too stubborn for the Lincoln backs to penetrate. With two powerful tackles In Captain Hedges and Duncan, the Washington high line staved off all attempts to plunge through their forward wall or circle their enda and an equally effective anti - air Craft defense balked all attempts to travel by the aerial route. lowann Start Strong. Cedar Rapids won the toss and chose to defend the north goal ' which gave the Brownemen the disadvantage of a stiff wind. All play ing was deep in Lincoln territory during the entire opening stanza although the Red and Black held a heavy margin in statistics. Towards the end of the period a Mc - Caf frie - to - Oreedy forward pass netted 13 yards for the only first down of the quarter, although not once did the Iowans threaten the Lincoln goal. The period ended with the Red and Black in possession of the ball on their own 21 - yard line. Bauer's punt of 79 yards early in the second quarter carried the pigskin deep into Washington high territory, but here the IoWans made a brilliant stand and registered a little themselves In the form of yardage gained. Bauer's second punt of 52 yards backed the Tiger crew to their six - yard line and a third at - the close of the half pushed them back to their eight - yard marker. Once Lincoln held possession of the ball on the . Cedar Rapids 20 - yard line but lacked the necessary punch to score. Schmitt's Kick Fails. . Only once during the third period did Washington high hold the ball in the Brownies' territorv, and that was when a 15 - yard penalty on the Red and Black for roughing gave the Ioawna the ball on the Lincoln 37 - yard line. The Tigers were held for downs and auer booted a 66 - yard punt that crossed the opposing goal. Cedar Raplda scrimmaged from its 20 - yard line and a few moments later Lyman, Lincoln right guard, recovered a fumble on the 25 - yard line and set the Brownemen on a drive to the goaj that ended near the middle of the fourth period on ' r (Continued On Page Four.) The Cards completed eight first passes In 15 attempts and California completed one asss in one attempt. As a result of the California failure to win today the University of Southern California takes undiluted claim to the Pacific Coast conference championship. Stanford packed up immediately after the game and prepared to take a train for New York, where Warner's team is to meet the Army next Saturday. California due to reeelve invitation from Pasadena to play the New Year's day game was undecided at this writing whether to accept or stage a post season game of its own on that day.
