"P ALTON KVftNtfiO TKLBORAPM TUESDAY, JANUARY J, 19JO Oilers Drop from Top 15 Teams in AP Basketball Poll Mt. Vernon Unanimous Choice for Toughest Prep Quintet in State Field Goal Too Much for Cal: BucsWin,17-14 •PRINGFIELD, in., Jan. a, <*> —Without any argument, Mt. Ver- non'a polished club was acclaimed today as the No. 1 downstate high school basketball team In the Associated Press second weekly poll of sports writers. The unbeaten Rams, paced by their star center Max Hooper, have averaged 62 points a game In capturing all 11 starts. Four of their victories were scored last week In their own 16-team Invitational tournament. All 15 sports writers participating In the poll gave Mt. Vernon • solid No. 1 rating as the best downstate prospect for the Illinois prep cage title in March. Performances In holiday tournaments figured prominently In the balloting for the top 15 rankings. West Aurora, which swept through the DeKalb meet, was accorded the No. 2 spot In the poll with 186 of a possible 225 ballot points. Flora, the champion of the Paris meet whore unbeaten Danville and Bradley tumbled the first time this season, advanced to. third place. The No. 4 berth went to Kan- kakcc, which carried out ono of the toughest assignments of them all In going through the eight team tournament at East St. Louis. Both Robinson and Wood River suffered their first setbacks this season In that meet. Because of their poor showings, Robinson and Wood River failed to stay In the top 15 list. Teutop- oils, which lost its first round game at Paris, also faded out of the ratings. In place of these three schools came Freeport, winner of the Pon- tlac tournament; Bradley, which dealt Danville Its first reverse, and unbeaten Athens, champion of the Macomb meet. Decatur's Reds passed up tourney action but played three regularly scheduled opponents and posted as many triumphs. The Reds were ranked In fifth place, • Jump ahead of Centralia, whose Orphans bowed in the final game of their own tournament. Tllden Tech of Chicago jolted the Orphans with their second defeat of the season. However, Tllden loses Its tow- .erlng polntmaker, six foot eight Inch John Kerr, In mid-semester and probably won't figure strongly In state title speculation. The Top 19 Teams No. Team W L 1. Mt.

By BOB MYKB8 PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 3. Ohio State's victorious football team flies home today, the banners, of the Big Ten flying high for the fourth straight year. California's Golden Bears point for Berkeley, beaten but not disgraced after their second joust with the Big Ten in the Rose Bowl. And a record crowd of 100,963 football fans relaxed after one of the tightest, best games In the history ot the tournament of roses. The score was 17 to 14, and It came on a field goal with one minute and 55 seconds left in the game—the first time a field goal had decided the Issue in the big bowl. Brightest star of numerous heroic warriors was Ohio State's right end, Jim Hague, whose deadly right foot won the game. His boot broke the 14-14 deadlock; broke the heart of a fighting California eleven and its legions of supporters In the tense packed stadium; gave the 'Big Ten its fourth consecutive win In Big Ten- Pacific Coast Conference series and avenged a 28-0 shellacking a California "wonder team" gave Ohio State In this same fixture on New CAIN FOR THE BUCKEYES—Richard Schnittker (93), Ohio State end, gains eight yards on an end run in first quarter of Rose Bowl game at Pasadena, tackle.

Whatever the minute difference, it came with success, Many observers felt that Buckeye Coach Wcs Fesler himself had a role In the game-winning kick. He sent Dick Wlddoes in to hold the ball for Hague but the team started to send Widdoes back to the bench. "Some of the boys out there apparently didn't like the field goal idea," said Fesler.

Hague thus goes down as the player whose foot kicked Ohio State into and successfully through the Rose Bowl. He was the man who kicked the extra point against Michigan for a 7-7 tie and cinched the Buckeye trip to the bowl. Behind that kick were more than the usual amount of thrills and excitements, of spectacular efforts and bad breaks for both teams. Californ'd- scored first on the heels of a beautiful 55-yard pass play from quarterback Bob Celeri to Frank Brunk. This was in the second quarter. , Ohio tied the count at 7-7 In tha third when halfback Vic Janowlcz Intercepted a Cat pass, stopping a scoring thrust and setting the Bucks into motion to score from the Bear 33. Ohio State went ahead, 14-7, on a blocked punt that fell into the Buckeye hands on the California six. They won .he game on Hague's field goal after Celeri on a poor pass from center was forced to punt the ball while running. He did it with his left foot, the ball fizzled out on the Cal 11 and the field goal came four plays later. Halfback Jim Monachino was the scoring star for California. He lugged the leather for the first tally from seven yards out, and he got loose for the longest run of the day with a 44-yard burst that carried on across the Buckeye goal. Largest ground gainer was the Buckeye fullback, 214-pound Fred Morrison, who made 113 of the team's total of 221 yards rushing, Morrison scored the first touchdown for Ohio, and his crack running mate, Jerry Krall, got the other. Morrison's scoring lunge was from about two feet out, Krall about two yards. Coach Lynn Waldorf of California had no alibis, "The coast Is creeping up. Last time It was only six points — when Northwestern beat us In the final minutes." Ohio State actually survived at least four, possibly five, bad breaks In the first half alone.

There was a pass interception deep in Cal territory, a pass labeled a touchdown that was dropped; and one on fourth down that fell dead just out of the end zone. Morrison scored once but the play was called back and the threat nullified when the team was called for illegal use of the hands, and he fumbled again to cost them another chance. On the other hand, Ohio State's scoring mileage actually was only some 40 yards. Their first scoring drive was accomplished in 10 plays for 31 yards; the second took four plays for six yards, and before the field goal came, they had gained three yards In three plays before going for the three points. They built up all the yardage between I the 35 yard lines. By HUGH FULLERTON, JR.

"Who is this Notre Dame?" "Give us another vote," These were the cries from the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans where Oklahoma's big, fast T-wizards rumbled Louisiana State, 35-0, for he most impressive victory of the day. Ohio State, Rice, Santa Clara and Maryland nailed down historic riumphs on other fronts but none with the awesome finality of Bud Wilkinson's Sooners, who were rated second behind the Fighting Irish in the final Associated Press poll. The Oklahomans stretched their winning streak to 21 games in running roughshod over the bare- egged boys from the bayous who upset three conference champions n the course of an erratic campaign.
