A rough, touch band of Missouri Tigers, who couldn't be impressed by Ohio State prestige, battled the Riff Nine eleven to a 13 - 13 tie here Saturday before 65,004 bitterly disappointed Ohio State fans. It was the Missouri line, heavier than the Ohio State forwards at every position, that gave the Tig - mrm thir unexrjected even break. ' LED BY Verlie "Burly" Abrams of Webb City, Mo., a 190 - pound guard, the gold - clad front line completely smothered Ohio State's fleet halfbacks and the secondary had Ohio pass receivers under everything but an armed guard. The Buckeyes were behind, going Into the final period bat managed to eke out the tying touchdown and conversion that kept Coach Paul Bixler's debut from being a complete washout. Lovd Brinkman, a halfback with power far beyond the ordinary limits ox a loa - pounaer, set me stage for an upset midway in the first period when he took the ball on his own 30, cut over right tackle and skipped down the side tine to the four yard line where he was flagged down from behind by Dick Palmer, Ohio State quar terback. " SECONDS LATER Brinkman pounded over and Missouri led 6 - 0. Then Big Jim Kekeris kicked the extra point v Ohio State came to life once more, when ft pass from George Spencer to end Tralan Dendiu was ruled complete on the Missouri 39. Pete Perini, freshman fullback, slugged his way down to the 12, and shortly after Tommy James went over from three. It looked like the beginning of the deluge, but Johnny Stungis missed the kick, and Ohio State trailed at the half, 7 - 6. Again interference on ft pass play saved the day for Ohio State The ruling gave the Buckeyes the ball on the Missouri 25. From there Tommy Phillips skipped to the 15. and Whisler slambanged his way thru the secondary for touchdown. Stungis booted what proved to be the crucial tying point. The lineups: Ohm Stkta Dot.

One of the brightest records in col legiate football was tarnished Saturday when Oklahoma A. & M., 1946 Sugar Bowl winner, was held to a 21 to 21 tie by a stubborn Arkansas football team. ' The Oklahoma team trotted onto the field with ft record of 20 straight victories extending back to 1943. Furthermore, Oklahoma had All - America Bob Fenimore in backfield and a weight ad - tntage of nearly 15 pounds a man. Clyde Scott, the4 former Navy star, matched Fenimore in producing the thrills for the crowd of 47,000 and raced 63 yards for the touchdown which tied the game. Previously he had dashed 30 yards thru the Aggie team for, a touchdown. Brooklyn, Stay Deadlocked BROOKLYN. (J). Playing like champions behind Rookie Joe Hatten, the Brooklyn Dodgers trounced the Boston Braves, 7 - 4, Saturday to seize undisputed pos session of the National League for the first time since August 21. HATTEN received errorless and, at times, brilliant support as he let down the Braves with five hits, one home run by Danny Lit - whiler. The stylish lefthander also anned seven batters as he regis tered his 14th triumph against 10 defeats and his sixth in row, With a capacity crowd of 30,929 fans in the stands and about 5,000 more turned away, tne ixxigers made quick work of Johnny Sain, the league's leading righthander and one of its two 20 - game win ners. They knocked Sain out in the first inning before ft man was out, and none of the three pitchers who succeeded him was able to quiet the Dodgers' timely attack.

Harry : "The Cat" Brecheen took the St. Louis Cardinals by their neck feathers and lifted them back into an exact first place tie with the Brook lyn Dodgers Saturday night by hurling a four - hit, 4 to 1, victory over the Chicago Cubs in the next to las game of the season. Handcuffing the Cubs with his eft handed curve and his darting screw bail, tne veteran - money pitcher" from Broken Bow, OkL, won the big one that the Redbirds had to have. A loss would have practically eliminated them from the race. Brecheen's masterpiece brought the National league race down to the finish line in its most exciting climax in years. Never has an exact first place tie existed at the end of the regular season but that will happen Sunday if the Cards and Dodgers both win or both lose their single respective games with the Cubs and Braves Chicago ib k o il at.

TOM NOVAK powered six yards to midfield and Long added six more for another first down. After Fischer lost six yards back to midfield, the stage was set for one ofthe sweetest Cornhusker of fensive maneuvers of the day.

A driv ing rain grounded All - America Harry Gilmer's passes Saturday but he valiantly slushed his way along the ground to pace Alabama to a 7 to 6 victory over Tulane before 60,000 here. It was Gilmer's show, as far as Alabama was concerned, even tho he did not score. Otherwise, Tulane, in its first game under bowl - famed Coach Henry Frnka, of Tulsa, battled on even terms before the largest crowd ever to see a football game in the south during the regular season. TULSA, Okla. (JP). Mrs. Babe Didrikson Zaharias, of Denver, added the National Women's Amateur golf championship to her long string of 4firsts" for America's wor - .en athletes Saturday, by de feating Mrs. Clara Sherman, Pasadena, Calif., 11 and 9. A DRIZZLING rain that fell thruout the day slowed play around the greens. Never down to an opponent in four days of match play over the tricky, deeply trapped 6,232 - yard Southern Hills Country Club course, the great "Babe" took a one - up lead with a birdie 4 on the 415 - yard second hole, and, after seeing Mrs. Sherman even at the sixth, made a walkaway of what was expected to be a fight to the finish. A partisan gallery of approxi mately 500 fans gave the "Babe" big ovation as her No. 9 second shot from the seventh fairway sailed dead to the pin and dropped in for an eagle 2. That made Mrs. Zaharias 9 - up and left the game, but outclassed Mrs. Sherman in a hopeless plight. The official score card, conceding several short putts gave Mrs. Zaharias a two - under par 110 for the 27 holes. feuaieflfaijfr i'r i'fV itasMffrif 'tis) BABE ZAHARIAS Adds another crown to her head. Wisconsin Rips California, 28 - 7 BERKELEY, Calif. (UP). Latent power hoarded by the University of Wisconsin came' to life in the final quarter here Saturday before 50,000 sweltering spectators in Memorial stadium to give the Badgers a 28 - 7 victory over the University of California in an in - tersectional football game. Held to a 7 - 7 tie for the first three quarters, the heavily favored Badgers ripped the Golden Bears line and skirted the ends in the final period to capture victory from a California team which a few minutes before had threat ened to score a major early season upset. Giantt Give Dick Kartell Unconditional Release NEW YORK. (UP). Veteran Dick Bartell, 39 - year - old player coach who played with five different big league clubs during his 19 years in organized baseball, was given his unconditional re lease Saturday by the New York Giants.
