A third quarter comeback by the Bull Dogs was short and the Orphans went on to win by 19 points. Ccntralia's small team proved too fast for the Harrisburg boys and time after time, especially in the second quarter, the Orphans got away from their defensive men to score easily. They scored seven times on sleepers, which is a good indication of how they caught the local aggregation flat-footed during that wild second quarter. And Centralia was hitting. The Troutmen only tried two long kiss shots from the center of the floor and b'oth of these went through the hoop. Most of the other baskets were made at close range. Cummins Scores 20 Points Herb Cummins kept the game from being a complete rout for Harrisburg. Herb scored 20 points during the fracas to be high point man of the game. He was followed by Centralia's cotton-topped Schlict- man, who garnered 17. The first quarter, a high scoring frame, wasn't so bad, although Harrisburg trailed, 15 to 20, at the end of the period. Floyd Jones gave Harrisburg the only lead it had during the game when he connected with one of his one-handed push shots six seconds after play had started. But six seconds or less later Locke slipped through for a basket to tie the count and when Schlictman dropped one in from close range Centralia took a lead it never lost. Orphans Rjish Bull Dogs Vinson, Brown, Cummins, Jones and VanderPluym started for Harrisburg, being pitted against Schlictman, the two Wilsons, John and Jerry, Locke and Morgan. Coach Ralph Davison inserted Catlin into the fray midway in the first frame but VanderPluym went back in shortly before the period New Fish Product Blue mnrlin, heretofore known only to sporting fishermen vacationing oil the west coast, luis made Its debut to the general public In tin cans.

During those years the Irish bagged 26, held a great Army side to a less tie and was shaded only by Great Lakes on a pass thrown in desperation in the closing seconds. Leahy's teams of 1941-46-47 were unbeaten. The Irish will be protecting an unbeaten string of 19 games when they open next fall. TJTHILE the 1947 edition was TM Notre Dame's first unbeaten and untied outfit since 1930, the immortal Knute Rockne's last year, a perfect record is nothing to get excited about in South Bend. The 1947 squad was the 17th to go through undefeated in Notre Dame's 59 -years of football, the : 10th to finish unbeaten and untied. 'The all-time 'figures are 369 victories. 29 ties and 77 losses since ·1887. ' Don't let anyone tell^you Army. Michigan 'and Illinois dropped Notre' Dame' for any other reason ·than that the Celts were too good. .

Ziggy Czarobski and Capt. George Connor, and guard Joe Signaigo. Such a loss would wreck the average college squad, but as formidable as those stalwarts were, they'll hardly be missed at South Bend. Wait and see. Frank Tripucka. for example, edged Lujack in passing percentages the past campaign, and the finest freshman squad in years is coming up. As someone remarked, the greatest college game of the season could have been arranged on the Notre Dame campus simply by letting Lujack and Tripucka choose sides. Even Michigan's presence m the Pasadena Bowl didn't end the talk of Notre Dame's smashing victory over Southern California. The ground out here is still shaking from Notre Dame's explosive bursts. m _ But why pick on .Leahy? Notre Dame \Vas too good long before he arrived. Leahy is only getting the most out of extraordinary talent. And remarkable football material just naturally flow's to Notre Dame.

During this first period Harrisburg was being rushed more than it seemed the local boys cared about and the Bull Dogs were having a little difficulty in getting the ball over the center line, much less work the ball in smoothly for shots. And Centralia was having one of its big nights in con nccting with the basket. The Bull Dog height 'advantage was useless in the second frame when the locals were otitscored, 20 to 4 Five minutes had elapsed before Bobka, a substitute, sent the ball through the hoop for the first local score. . When the rout was at its height Davison sent in Cline for a few minutes, then sent in his second Stringers. Kibier, Hensley, Bobka and Pavelonis to work with Cummins. But nothing seemed to stop the Centralia rout. Bull Pups Lose With the original lineups starting for both schools Harrisburg outplayed and outscored the Orphans in the third quarter, accumulating 19 points to only six for Centralia, but Centraiia still had an eight- point lead as the period ended. In the early stages of the final period the Bull Dogs pulled up to within five points of the Troutmen, 44 to 49 but Schlictman put six points through the hoop before Harrisburg could score again ana the game belonged definitely to Centralia. . r Harrisburg was hitting its free ihrows. connecting with eight out of 12.
