! Undefeated Georgia Tech Bows 1 To 13
Clarks Gets 69-Yd. Touch
Down 5 Seconds After
DURHAM, Nov. 4—(.^-Undefeat
ed, untied Georgia Tech, seeking
its sixth straight triumph, bowed
today before an explosive Duke
university team that traveled by
land and air to defeat the Ramb
ling Wreck, 19 to 13.
The Blue Devils scored on the
first running play of the game
but W'ere forced to come from
behind twice to score one of the
major upsets of the day. It was
Dukes’ second victory in six starts
and provided a crowd of 30,000,
largest of the season in this area,
with thrills galore.
Duke scored first, five seconds
after the game started, when
George Clark skirted right end
behind beautiful blocking of Tom
Davis and whizzed 69 yards. Rae
ther’s try for point was no good.
Two minutes later Allen Bowen,
17-yera old Tech freshman, aerial
ed from his 31 to Mickey Logan
on the Duke 35 and Logan crossed
into pay dirt. Both Divais and
Gordon Carver of Duke juggled
the ball before it fell into Lo
gan’s hands. Bowen kicked the
point from placement.
Bill Alexander's Techmen, ap
parently sensing defeat but trying
desperately to avoid it, came back
in the second half with a bang.
Bowen led the way again, and aid
ed by a 15-yard penalty against
the Blue Devils for pushing, work
ed the ball down to the Duke 41.
Then Bowen and end Charles Mur
dock alternated in moving to the
four and Bowen went over two
plays later. Bowens try for point
was blocked.
Tech led in lirst downs 14-10,
but Duke made 266 to 134 yards
The upset ended a Tech victory
string that included such power
houses as Navy and Georgia Navy
Preflight. For the Blue Devils, it
was the first triumph since they
trampled’ Richmond in the season
Fred Sink, guard, Frank Irwin,
tackle, and John Crowder, center,
were the pill boxes in Dukes for
ward wall, which Coach Eddie
Cameron said played one of its
best games of the season. They
rushed Techs’ passers, Frank
Broyles, Bowen and Tex Ritter,
unmercifully, frequently throwing
them for losses. Their alertness
and speed got Duke out of the
hole several times deep in Blue
Devil territory.
Tom Davis was back in his old
form and netted the yardage when
it was most needed. Lewds, inci
dentally, was playing with an arm
in a brace.
It was Bowen who set up Tech’s
second and last marker. If any
one player should be given first
| honors today, it ought to be Bowen.
iHe carried Tech most of the way
' and never seemed to tire.
Ritter tried desperately in the
closing minutes to connect with
his receivers^pnd did complete one
to Logan, only to be smothered
later by the rushing Duke wall,
i The second pass after that was
I intercepted by Davis and the game
i soon endpd.

AMES, la., Nov. 4.—(fl—Iowa
Stale's golden anniversary of in

blot of tarnish today as Oklahoma
