(UP - Iowa's football forces turned two breaks into touchdowns aiid then ground through the line for two more scores Saturday to drub Indiana, 27 - 0, in a Big Ten conference clash before 25,000 fans. It was a warm, sunny day, and the teams slowed perceptibly in the second half. But that was when the Hawkeyes put on pressure through the line and drove 82 yards for one score and 69 for another. But throughout the contest, Indiana's passing attack, led by Gene Cichowski, the Big Ten's third leading thrower a year ago, ! couldn't consistently pierce Iowa's j defense. Cichowski, who played about half the game, completed only four of 10 throws tor 39 yards j and a sophomore replacement, ; Steve Filipowski. hit on four of seven tries for 35 yards. Iowa's alert defenders turned two Indiana's passes into a Hawk - eye bonus. Center Charles Pierce j intercepted Cichowski's first aerial on the Indiana 25 and it took only nine plays before sophomore fullback John Nocera plunged for a touchdown from the one. Another pass by Bill Takacs was intercepted by Ken Ploen to break up what might have been Indiana's best offense of the day. Iowa 13 7 7 - 27 plunge).
