Really: Irish Beaten, 51-19! Purdue Breaks Loose, In Wild Second Quarter BY GENE BLUDEAU SOUTH BEND fUPI) Purdue's explosive Boilermakers scored four touchdowns and a field goal in a wild second period Saturday to beat Notre Dame, 51-19, and rolr up the highest score against years. A capacity crowd of 59.235 watched the underdog Boilermakers take a 14-13 edge in the opening period. Purdue capitalized on a Notre Dame interception and halfback Bob Wiater's 78-yard touchdown sprint after a lateral from quaterback Bernie Allen. - Purdue recovered two Irish fumbles in the next period and intercepted a pass from quarterback George Haffner, turn ing all the Irish misplays into cores.

A fumble by Haffner was turned into another Purdue touchdown when Allen threw a 30-yard scoring pass to Jim Tiller. Tiller also scored Purdue's fourth touchdown of the period when he returned a Notre Dame punt 66 yards. By COSTELLO-MULLEN? NO, LUSKY-VARGO Xavier's 2, Musketeers No Match for Titans, 26-0 BY JACK BERRY Free Pros Staff Writer CINCINNATI Bob Lusky and Larry Vargo outdueled Xavier's Ron Costello and Jim Mullen Saturday to give the University of Detroit an easy 26-6 victory over the Musketeers. Costello and Mullen were billed as Xavier's No. 1 threat Costello as the passer and Mullen the end. Instead it was all Lusky in the air and Vargo grabbed two of Lusky's tosses for touchdown. D-D, WHICH long had been threatening to uilimber its arm, finally did. The Titans used their grouna game sparingly while pitching 29 times for 281 yards. Lusky hit on four of f iv - in each half. His favorite target, Vargo, caught five for 107 yards. "W Improved over .last week and we'll be better next Friday night against Cincinnati," coach Jim Miller said. The Titans wrapped up the game, played in perfect weather before a slim 6,450 turnout, in the first seven minutes, scoi clobbered Iowa, Capt. Jerry Mauren set the pace for the victorious Hawk-eyes, who were wrapping up their second straight victory, with two scores in 68 seconds before six minutes had passed. First he romped 45 yards through the line to score.

ALLEN SCORED again with a six-yard run in the fourth period to wind up the Boilermaker rout. Wiater's 78-yard run was the longest of the game, but Bob Scarpitto broke loose on a 64-yard touchdown sprint for Notre Dame's first touchdown. A 24-yard pas from An-gelo Dabiero counted for another first-period Irish score, and Daryle Lamonica scored Turn to Page 2, Column 2 ing twice after an interception and fumble recovery. Xavier didn't score until the fourth period. COSTELLO had little time to exhibit the passing talents that gained more than 1,000 yards for the Muskies last fall and helped them to a 1-1 record going into this game. Costello threw 27 times but gained only 82 yards on 11 com pletions and he had three picked off by U-D defenders. Xavier, crippled by injuries to linemen, could hardly diversify with a ground attack.

Larry Ferguson, who had a 58-yard touchdown run caned back, pulled down a pass from Fred Quinn and returned 70 yards to score; rookie Sammy Harris rambled 53 yardj for another touchdown; and Wilburn Hollis ran eight yards for one score and passed to Bill Perkins for nine for another. It was a humiliating defeat for Northwestern, sixth ranked in the nation compared to eighth for Iowa, before the game. The Wildcats had to play without their No. 1 quarterback, Dick Thornton, out with a muscle injury in his leg. But it was doubtful that Thornton could have made a difference. Iowa's linemen controlled the Northwestern forwards constantly. Even the Hawkeye reserves, who saw plenty of action, usually contained Northwestern's attack. COACH Ara Parseghian of Northwestern used Eickhoff and Quinn to call signals, but the Wildcats moved only when Quinn, a sophomore, was in the game. And their attack under him wasn't consistent. Northwestern gained only 65 yards rushing and 147 passing:, with Quinn accounting for 133 of this total. Iowa's crunching attack powered for S03 yards on the ground and the Hawkeyes attempted only eight passes, completing four for 80 yards. Each team had two passes intercepted, but Northwestern couldn't gain with its thefts. Northwestern made only one serious threat, advancing to the Iowa 14 in the third period. Otherwise the Wildcats got across midfield only four times.

LUSKY COOLY RAN the Titans to their first decision of the season in two starts and maintained U-D's perfect record against Xavier five games and rive triumphs.

BY LYALIa SMITH Fro Press Sports Editor EAST LANSING They called him Carl (Tough Luck) Charon last November when the kid fullback from up in the ski country at Boyne City broke his ankle against Purdue. But he broke more than that here on the first day of October, i In one tremendous last-ditch explosion he broke a knotted score . . . and the heart of a gallant Michigan football team. CHARON WAS just" another Michigan State fullback when this 53rd annual battle between the Spartans and Wolverines began on a perfect football afternoon before a record-set ting throng .of 76,490 fans. But when he oame out of it, he was the player who had given State a 24-17 triumph over Michigan in a game that will go into the hooks as one f the most sensational in the long vendetta between the two great state- universities. It had everything. It had more than everything. It was one of collegiate football's greatest days and. if you don't believ it. lust wait about 20 years from now. They'll still be talking about it. ' WITH ONE second less than three minutes before the final gun the score was tied, 17-17. The Wolverine, who had led by three points at half-time and had visions of a startling upset, had been pushed within the shadow of their own goal posts when their sophomore quarterback, Dave Glinka, was smeared on his own three-yard line. Reid Bushong stood deep in his end zone and punted a low liner out to his own 42 where halfback Don Stewart of State grabbed it and lugged it back to the Michigan 30. IT WAS Carl Charon for 13 yards. It was Carl Charon again for four more. Then it was quarterback Tom Wilson, Spartan playmaker, on a keeper for seven more to reach the Wolverine six-yard stripe. It was Charon again to the three. And then It was Charon who put his nose to the grasstop and burrowed his 180 pounds Into the end zone for the touchdown which gave the Spartans their dramatic triumph. That a kid from the ski country ended it was poetic justice. For it was a game with swoops and thrills, ups and downs, spills and chills.

( UPI ) Syracuse, a stumbling football machine for half the game, rallied for two second-half touchdowns Saturday to defeat the Kansas Jayhawks. 14-7. Syracuse spotted Kansas a 7-0 lead in the first three minutes, then roared back to score on a 10-yard pass from quarterback Dave Sarette to Ken Ericson in the third period, and on a one-yar drun by halfback Ernie Davis in the fourth quarter. The victory ran Syracuse's undefeated string to 19 games. KANSAS CASHED in on a Syracuse fumble to score its touchdown. On the third play from scrimmage, Sarette fum bled and Kansas end Larry Al len recovered at the Syracuse 20. Kansas halfback Curtis Mc-Clinton skirted left end for nine yards, and then sophomore half back Bert Co an streaked around right end for 11 yards and the touchdown. John Suder kicked the extra point to give the Jay-hawks a 7-0 lead.
