KICK Wills mi iBrass racis Cy Sherman He’s the Galloping Ghost of Old Johnny Bender /Fs. Boots a Field Goal in Last Minute Following Pair of Touchdowns Made by Shaver. By PAUL MICKEL80N. SOUTH BEND. Notre Dame’s mighty fortres.s of football, Impregnable against twenty- six assaults in almost three years of gridiron warfare, fell at last Saturday. Fluttering over its ruins flew the cardinal and gold battle flag of the roaring Trojans from Southern CaJifornia, who astounded the world of football by ran.sacking it with one fifteen minute rush in the last period of battle Saturday by a margin of 16 to 14. The final rush came just when it looked as if the big Notre Dame guns, Marrhy Schwartz and Steve Banas, seemed certain of winning the day. Trailing by two touchdowns as they entered the final period, the Trojans da.shed and passed their way to one touchdown in four minutes, rushed over another one to come within one point of tying the battle and then triumphed while the frenzied crowd of 52,000 spectators, treated to one of the greatest battles in the history of football, watched Johnny Baker, Trojan left guard, arch a perfect placement kick thru the uprights for three points. Baker's kick, coming with but one minute of play, was an ironic touch for old Notre Dame, which has witne.ssed its fighting army march on thru twenty-five victories in twenty-six starts. The kick beat Notre Dame a.s the “fighting Irish” had three times defeated the Trojans. More ironical than that was that the kick enabled the Trojans to be the first and the to defeat Notre Dame, as it wa.s the same invader from the ■'^;est which conjured Notre Dame’s football army way back in 1928. Trojans Thrice Thwarted. If ever a football team deserved to win. it wa.s Coach Howard Jones’ cardinal and gold shlrted giants from the west. In the first periotl, they sma.-^hed their way to Notre Dame’.s 3-yard line only to lose their precious chance for the first score on Jimmy Mu.sick’a fumble. Two minutes later they rammed to the enemy 11-yard line only to bt‘ stopped by inches and ohce again, in the third peri<xl. they found themselves beaten back with ten yards to go. The battle was all Southern California in the first period as they made their first two threats, but Notre Dame came back with a rush in the .second. Getting the ball on its own 45- yard line after Schwartz’s boots had gained a wide advantage, Notre Dame opened a fifty-five yard march for the first touchdown of the game. Schwartz engineered the first big advance by flipping a pass to "Chuck” Jask- wich. good for thirty-nine yards and placing the ball on the Trojan 16-yard line. Schwartz and Banas carried it with line drives to the 1-yard line, where Banas hurdled center for the score. Jaskwich’s kick for the extra point was good and Notre Dame led, 7 to 0, as the •first half ended. Score In Four Plays. As the "fighting Irish" took the field for the third peritxl the Trojan hopes fell to the lowest point of the game. Starting on their own 37-yard line, the men of Notre Dame carried the ball over for a touchdown on exactly four plays. Schwartz again started the parade by tossing a lateral to Ray Brancheau, who scampered to the Trojan 46-yard stripe. Schwartz (Continued On Page 7-A.) UunkvriC Oppitnvnt Soon to lie .yamvtL NominatlK>n of the college team that will joust with the Nebra.ska Cornhuskers in the charity game scheduled for Dec. 5 in Denver will he coming along within the next few days. The choice Is up to the Colorado schmds holding membership in the Rocky Mountain conference, being a detail of no concern to the Cornhuskers. Meantime, a fledgling scribe in ! Salt I.Ake City has been wise-! cracking a bit at Nebraska’s ex- j by breaking into print in the | Deseret Dally News, a Salt Lake City publication, with the charge that Nebraska was all but ready to sign up with Utah U., only to run out after the Utes had flattened the Colorado Aggies by a lop-sided score. I am a.s.sured by Director of Athletics Gish of Nebraska U. that there was no suggestion of a run­ out on the part of the Cornhusk­ ers, inasmuch as the Nebraska director did not at any time so much as remotely indicate that he was seriously interested in a game at Salt Lake City. According to Director GIth, a wire invitation came from two sources in the metropolis of the Mormon state. He wired a courteous acknowledgement of the offers and back came a second message specifying the financial terms which the Utahans were willing to guarantee. When Lewis Brown made his mad gallop down the sidelines at Manhattan a week ago to give the Huskers a 6 to 3 thriller over the Haggles, hundreds of Scarlet grid followers recalled the days back in the early 1900's when Johnny Bender was tearing up the sod. Brownie, a squat tow-headed youngster, completing his second and final season in a Corn- husker uniform, hails from Wisner. Before coming to Nebraska, however, he performed a season at Creighton university under Chet Wynne. His biggest assets are his speed, his change of pace and ability to grab punts on the dead run. He started at quarterback Saturday against Iowa State. His SO yaVd scamper down the sidelines in front of the Husker student section Saturday started the Biblemen off to a healthy 23 to 0 win over the Cyclones, and the Big Six championship. They Get That Way In Mormon State, The negotiations with the Colorado schools had been launched several days prior to the proposal coming from Utah and when it was made Apparent to the Nebraska director that a game in Denver promised to bring greater returns for charity than would be possible in Salt Lake City, the Cornhuskers had but one sensible choice. That choice, of course, being Denver, a city three times as populous as the capital of Utah. In view of the misrepresentation of the Nebraska management, as published in the Salt Lake City prints, the Cornhusker authorities have reason to indulge in self-congratulation over escaping contact with the fanatical followers of the Utes. Utah U., I believe, is blameless in the matter, but one can better understand the fanaticism that is now rampant in the Mormon metropolis when the entry Is spread on the record that the Utes were urged in the same Deseret News to hurl their collective hat in the postseason ring and dare Notre Dame (Continiied On Page 9-A.)

Striking twice thru the air in the second period, Southern Methodist university came from behind Saturday to defeat the Navy, 13 to 6, and remain on the list of the nation’s undefeated, untied football teams. The red jerseyed warriors from Texas found the Middies much more stubborn foemen than they had anticipated and it was only by the perfection of their aerial attack, judiciously employed, that they managed to gain a decision over Coach Rip Miller’s team. Right up to the last minute the Middles w’ere dangerous, forging dowm to the invaders’ 13-yard line in the '-Sing minutes of play. Two riflelike passes from Kenneth Travis, Mustang quarterback, to Weldon Mason, flashy halfback, gave the Texans their touchdowms after the Navy had taken a 6 to 0 lead in the initial period. The first one was good for forty- nine yards, Mason taking the ball in a clear field and running the thirty yards unmolested. Travis’ second peg carried twenty- seven yards to Mason, who took it on the goal line and fell across under a burden of tacklers. Mason’s brilliant play in the second neriod was by way of redemption for his miiC’Je that led to the Navy’s touchdowm midway in the opening period. The Methodist ace fumbled one of Lou Kirn’n long punts and it was gobbled up by Pray, Middle end, on the Mustang 18-yard line. On the first play thereafter.

A turbulent majta of football enthuniA.4tn gone wild tpiiled out of the campus of the Unlveralty of Southern California and downtown buldings Saturday as the news spread of the Tmjan«' victory over Notre Dame. Commandeering passing automo- bles, they draped the maroon and gold colors of the Troj.vns on the machines and drove thru downtown streets, a yelling mob. A portion of the sc hool's band, garbed in the school colors, got aboard a double-deck ous and paraded thru the streets, blaring out the tunes of victory. The impromptu parades started spasmodically on nearly every dow'ntown street and street comers were Jammed as enthusiasts who have waited two years for the Trojans to break the spell of the Ramblers, started at the glaring headlines of newspapers and stood by to cheer.

Oklahoma City university’s Gold Bugs, undefeated this season, went on a scoring spree againt Nebraska Wesleyan here, romping five times across the enemy line for touchdowns and kicking one field goal to win, 37 to 0. The visitors held the Bugs to a lone touchdown in the first half but were helpless against a driving last half offensive which netted the Oklahoma Citians a pair of touchdowns in the final chapter. The Nebraska eleven had its moments but lacked the final punch for a score. In the second quarter it reached the Gold Bug’s 4-yard line but could go no farther.

Alble Booth, Yale’s little boy blue, broke the Crimson spell Saturday and drop- kicked the Elis’ to a specUcuIar victory over Harv’ard. 3 to 0, In the mellow November twilight of his last varsity f(x)tball game against the Crimson. The climax to a bitterly waged battle, for fifty-seven minutes as each team lost golden opportunities to break thru, came w'ith barely three minutes to go. Harvard’s fading hopes had Just been revived by a slashing twenty- eight yard run by Jack Crlckard, near to midfield, when Captain Barry Wood’s attempted punt was blocked and recovered by big John Wilbur, Eli tackle, thereby opening the way for Yale’s triumphant thrust from the Crimson 44-yard line. For most of the game Albls Booth had been bottled up, harassed and turned back as he sought to shake off the jinx that has pursued him ever since tall, rangy Barry Wood stepped Into the Harvard leadership, (jiven another unexpected chance.

An Inspired Golden Bear football team turned back Stanford’s defiant Cardinals by a score of 6 to 0 Saturday, while 90,(KK) fans cheered them to the first California big game victory in eight years. Charging linemen and plunging backs shattered Coach Glenn "Pop’ ’ Warner’s famous Stanford deceptive attack, and sent the Bears across for the winning score early in the second quarter. Henry Schaldach, California "mighty atom” of the backfield teamed with Ralston Gill, the Orcutt farmer boy to carry the brunt of the California attack.
