Georgetown Outgains Enemy,

SpecUl DUp.tch to Th« Star.
ber 24.—An inspired band of
Georgetown fighters battled
the powerful Michigan State
College eleven on even terms
throughout most of a hard-fought
game today, but finally bowed to
Jimmy Crowley’s machine, 6 to 0.
Georgetown, the underdog in advance
•peculation, put up a great defensive
battle against the same State line that
Army two weeks ago. The
Hoya offensive, led by Leroy Bordeau,
•park-plug of Tommy Mills' aggrega
tion, looked fully as impressive as the
Statgaattack, which failed to get under
way before the hard-charging Eastern
Bob Monnett, leading scorer in the
Nation, couldn’t break loose this after- j
t noon and the bulk of Spartan ground- j
gaining was done by Abe Eliowits, full- j
back and field general. Eliowits scored :
i the only touchdown. The Spartans
played the entire game without making
a substitution.
State managed to score in the first
quarter, but after that neither team
Kked the final punch when it reached
scoring sone.
Hoyas Outgain Victors.
Numerous penalties marred the tilt,
Georgetown amassing most of these
for holding. The Mills eleven was over
anxious and was frequently called for
off-side In their efforts to halt the
Spartan running attack. Georgetown
outgained State in yards frotn scrim
mage, 189 to 168. Penalties cost the
Hoyas 120 yards, as compared with 15
for the Spartans. The invaders com
pleted 2 passes out of 12 for 24 yards,
while State completed 2 out of 8 for
39 yards.
The Spartans scored after eight
minutes of play in the first quarter.
State had punted over Georgetown's
goal line and Donaghue’s return punt
went out of bounds on the Hoyas’ 26-
yard line. Monnett tried the line, but
•was stopped twice by Katalinas for
losses. Ellowitz circled left end for 14
yards. King and Donaghue finally stop
rig him. Eliowitz hit right tackle for
yards and Monnett slashed through
the other side of the line for 5 more,
to put the ball on the 5-yard line. A
penalty against Tommy Mills' men put
the ball on the 21£-yard line. Eliowitz
pounded through center for the score.
Monnett failed to kick goal.
Although Georgetown was penalized
frequently during the first quarter, the
Easterners made two determined
ground-gaining forays. After the State
touchdown, Bordeau tore off 8 yards
through the left side of the line, and
Donaghue hit the same spot for a first
down. King reeled off 5 on an at
tempted pass, but State tightened there
and Georgetown punted.
Georgetown Threatens.
Late in the same period it looked as j
though Bordeau and his fighting mates :
would penetrate to the Crowley goal j
~ line. Taking the ball on a punt. George- ,
town pounded successfully at the State
line. Bordeau broke through behind
holes opened by Katalinas and Dubofsky
and reeled off 17 yards. On the next
play he hit the same tackle, reversed i
his field, and scampered to State’s 29- j
yard line before Kowatch brought him 1
down. Fine blocking by the Hoyas
opened the way, and not a State llne
f man laid hands on the sturdy fullback, !
] Bordeau was Instrumental in halt

\ second quarter. The Spartans took the
ball to the Georgetown 32-yard line
by means of spinner plays and a 15-
yard penalty. Monnett attempted a
pass to Jones, but Bordeau intercepted
It. dropped the ball and saw his mates
recover it.
Spartans Held for Downs.
Georgetown showed that it's husky,
forward wall could stiffen in emer
gency when State reached the 8-yard
4 line near the end of the half, only to
find the Hoya line impenetrable. With
Eliowitz and Monnett carrying the ball
State forged deep into Georgetown
territory. A pass from Monnett to
Vandermere was good for 25 yards,
putting the oval on the visitors' 16-
yard mark. Karclan stopped Eliowitz.
Monnett failed to gain at tackle and :
then Carolan held Jones. Monnet
tried again, but Georgetown took the
ball on down on its own 8-yard line.

Rushing Offense Checked,

for Victory.

SOUTH BEND, Ind., October 24.
—A swirling, surging tide of
9 forward passes carried the
“Fighting Irish” of Notre
Dame to still another foot ball
• conquest today by engulfing the
heretofore undefeated Panthers
from Pittsburgh under the short
end of a 25-to-12 score, before
42,000 excited spectators.
Halted st the outset by a treat
Panther line, which mart than lived up
to its reputation in 1 the first quarter of
play, the men of Notre Dame took to
the air and broke throufh to their
twenty-second victory without defeat
since 1929.
Three times they dashed the Panther
hopes with a bewildering aerial attack,
and then, with the foe’s line spent,
they added one touchdown for good
measure via the old-fashioned system
of line smashing and sweeping and
While Pittsburgh was defeated in its
valiant battle to accomplish what no
team has done since the Notre Dame
victory march started on its merry,
mad way. the Panthers gave a good
account of themselves. Notre Dame |
rooters groaned as they saw their great
line shelled and riddled during the first
15 minutes of play.
TTie Panthers started out as if they
would dash their opponents with ease.
But the Irish took to the air, tossing
long, high passes that seemed to hang
in the atmosphere for minutes until
some eligible receiver would get on the
spot, grab the ball with ease and then
trot away for the precious touchdown.
Air Offeass Sapped Pitt.
The aerial attack and not the Notre
Dame line seemed to take all the starch
out of the Panthers’ forward wall. As
the Panthers saw a Notre Dame victory
floating on the well tossed passes-by
March Schwaits or Mike Koken, they
; were shaken never to recover, except
for an uprising against the Notre Dame
second string in the final period when
; they, too, took to the air to score their
I second and last touchdown.
I If there was an outstanding hero in
Notre Dame’s victory it was Schwartz
who tossed the high, lobbing passes for
touchdowns and clicked off the most
yards from the line of scrimmage,
piling up 76 yards on 11 attempts, or
almost 7 yards a thrust. He did most
I of the kicking, too, keeping even with
an average of 35 yards a boot with the
flashy Panther kicker—’’Blp” Collins
Several times Schwarts almost got
away on his famous dashes only to be
: slowed down by his own Interference
or penalties incurred by his team
mates, who lost 50 yards for off-side
i and holding.
For the Panthers. Warren Heller
stoed out with his dashes around the
end and his passing.
The start of the game gave advance
notice of thrills when both teams tum
bled. Krause recovered a Pitt fum
ble and the break was cashed in almost
. immediately from the 34-yard line. Two
plays took the ball to Pitt's 18-yard
line and a high pass from Schwartz to
Mellnkovich took it over.
The Panthers were far from disheart
ened and at the end of the period were
hammering goalward. The short rest
between sessions failed to avail the Irish
and Heller finished the march from the
2-yard line shortly after the second
period started. The try for'point failed.
Irish Score Again.
Host raced 32 yards a few minutes
later and the ball rented on Pitt’s 23-
yard line. Two passes. Jackwhich to
Brancheau. and Koken to Host, covered
the remaining distance and Notre Dame
led by 13 to 6 at halftime.
Pitt attempted to score via the air in
the third period, but the Irish defense
was adequate, and a long run bv
Schwartz took the. pall to the Panthers'
4-vard line. Pitt rallied and the Irish
were stopped an inch shy of a first
down. Two minutes later, however,
Schwartz tossed a pass to Jackwhich for
25 yards and another touchdown.
Schwartz and Melinkovltch came right
back and lugged th 3 ball to Pitt's 3-yard
line fioin where Melinkovltch went over
on two plunges through the center of
the line.
Notre Dame's second team went in.
and Pitt proceeded' to score it; oilier
touchdown. Johnny Luch carrying ihe
ball over after a mixture us passes and
slashes at the line had carried it to
the 1-yard line. • •
Official statistics gave Notre Dame a
wide edge. It gained 84 yards on the
seven completed passes to 38 for Pitt
on two completed tosses. From the
line of scrimmage it gained 304 yards
j to Pitt’s 105.

Parkter’s Sprint From Kick
off Gets Eli Score Right t
After Cadets’ Tally.
Associated Press Sports Editor.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., October
24. With one Dazzling
stroke, an 88-yard run
back of kick-off for a
touchdown by Quarterback Robert
(Dud) Parker, Yale wiped out
Army’s freshly won advantage to
day and tied the Cadets for the
second straight year In one of the
! East’s most spectacular foot ball
The final score was 6 to 6 as
I Yale, in a thrilling final quarter,
lost three big chances to break
I the deaolock.
For the first time in years the big Eli
Bowl was not filled to capacity for the
game, but 72,000 spectators, within
3,000 of the stadiums limit, watched
the rival elevens set off a series of at
tacking high explosives In the last pe
riod after 45 minutes of listless and
scoreless play.
Yale's first chance to break the tie
went glimmering when Ed Rotan, giant
guard, just missed the uprights with
the kicking try for extra point.
Within barely two minutes the game
| had produced more drama than the en
tire previous 45. Army’s star right end,
Dick Sheridan of Auguste, Ga„ in the
midst of the excitement, was carried
off the field on a stretcher and taken
to a hospital. Yale's captain and bright
star, Albie Booth, had failed t 6 break
away and yielded his post to an under
study. Bob Lassiter of Charlotte, N. C„
who Immediately took charge of the Ell
offensive where Parker left off.
Lass*ter Bright Star.
With the big bowl a mass of yelling
humanity, Lassiter, ably assisted by Joe
Crowley, lashed at Army’s tiring de
fense. In two sensational drives toward
the Soldier goal, Yale advanced 53
yards to Army's 15-yard mark and then
came back in another 56-yard march to
the Cadet 9-yard line.
The first of these two offensives
ended when Mac Lean Williamson, sub
stitute back, tried a drop-kick from
Army’s 26-yard line. The ball struck I
the left upright and bounced back into
the end zone. The second drive bogged
down when Crowley, on fourth down
with 2 yards to go, was stopped at
the scrimmage line by Jack Price, Army
Laaslster, a sophomore “find,” knifed
through for runs of 12, 18 and 26
yards in the course of his big splurge,
besides passing to Hawley for one gain
of 17 yards. It was the best individual
exhibition of ground gaining in the en
tire game, but Yale could not find the
scoring touch again despite the use of
all available reserve power.
Throughout the hectic final period,
the players as well as the crowd were i
keyed to high pitch. Sheridan's injury
was an outgrowth of the fierce charg
ing and tackling by both teams. The
Eli rooters gave vent to an outburst of
booing at one stage when Williamson
was thrown heavily by an Army player.
Yale Line Firm.
Army's running attack was almost
entirely stopped by Yale's forwards.
The Cadets capitalised their one sew- i
ing chance mainly through Btecker’s
passing skill. The star halfback tossed
to Kllday for one gain of 16 yards and
another pass to Lankenau, substitute
end, was good for a 20-yard gain, put
ting the ball on Yale's 5-yard line.
Carver contributed 1 yard and Stecker
4 to cover the remaining distance to the
goal in three plunges.
Booth's passes and Parker’s kicking
harassed the Army in the first three
periods, but neither team penetrated
the opposing 15-yard line until the
Cadets launched their scoring attack
toward the close of the third quarter.
Yale outrushed Army, 197 yards to
121. and registered 13 first downs to 10
for the Soldiers. The Elis completed 6
out of 23 passes for gains of 80 yards.
Army completed 5 out of 13 for gains
of only 48. but the Cadets intercepted
4 Eli aerials.
