Georgia Tech Knocked
From Unbeaten Ranks By Tennessee, 13 to 6 By the Associated Press f ATLANTA, Nov. 6.—The Tennessee Vols tumbled Georgia Tech from the unbeaten ranks today, 13-6, as the Vols’ big, fast line ‘continually operated in the Tech backfield. A sellout crowd of 38,000 fans at a muddy Grant Field saw Tennessee linemen outhit Tech's and destroy the Yellow Jackets' passing game. The light, high-speed Tech backs were forced to run instead of pass. Their fumbles set up one Tennessee score and ended several threats. Tech Was Favored. The loss was a major upset. Tech was a two-touchdown pick' before the Southeastern Conference game. Although the sun was out during the game, last night’s down pours made footing dangerous on the field. Tech's loss and North Carolina's 7-7 tie by William and Mary left Clemson as the only Southern un beaten and untied team. Twice-beaten Tennessee was out gained on the ground 160 yards to 42. but managed to stop all except one Tech drive before it became a big threat. Tech made 18 first downs to the Vols’ four, but few of them were put into a string. Fumble Brings Sjcore. The only score of the first half came on the fourth play of the game when Tech’s fullback, Frank Ziegler, usually a sure man under a punt, fumbled Tennessee's kickoff on his three yard line but recovered. Three plays later. Ziegler again fumbled and the wet ball squirted over the Yellow Jacket's goal. Vol Fullback Tommy Slack recovered for Tennessee's touchdown. On the try for the extra point practically the entire Tech line smothered Jim Powell when a bad snap from center gave the Tech linemen time to get through. After the score, the game de veloped into a rough battle of lines with Tennessee forwards doing aj better job. Vols Gain on Kicks. Hal Littleford of the Vols and Ziegler and Joe Brown of Tech kicked often on third down with Tennessee usually gaining on the exchanges. The second half began very much as the first. Within two minutes, Littleford tossed a perfect running pass to Halfback Bob Lund. Lund took the ball over his shoulder, feinted twice and, with the help of a block by Alan Fielder, went 47 yards fpr the touchdown. Powell kicked the extra point to give the Vols a 13-0 lead. Tech immediately came back with a powerful 80-yard drive in which the Jackets rolled up half their The Lineups TENNESSEE. Left end—Sherrod. Powell. Left tackle—Meseroll. Donahue.

The loss was Tech’s first at home in 18 games and their first in nine games. Tennessee centered on its run ning game, throwing only seven passes and completing three. Tech passing, which had been principally responsible for winning six games this year, was a near flop until late in the first half and in the final minutes when necessity forced the Jackets to throw instead of trying to run through the stout Tennes seans. Offiicals ruled pass interference against Tennessee during Tech’s scoring drive to give the Georgians a big assist and bring boos from the crowd.

Nov. 6 — Princeton ground Harvard into the green turf of Palmer Stadium to day, 47-7, with the jyif&est scoring, splurge of their anciftSi aeries that dates back to 1877. "taking complete charge after a first-period Harvard touchdown or. i an electrifying 77-yard run by Har- j old Moffle, the Tigers opened the defense of their Big Three title with a smashing attack that netted 493 yards. One by one, the Princeton team smashed all existing scoring marks for its exclusive feud with the Harvards. Before today the top scores were 41-15 for Princeton in 1889 and a 36-0 margin for the Tigers in 1925. Both were by passed in a crushing defeat for the Harvard team, the third worst in their entire grid history. Tigers Dominate Play. The Tigers dominated play so completely that Harvard penetrated Princeton territory only twice after, the first quarter. Once they lost! the ball as soon as they got it on a fumble of an intercepted pass by Rail* Bender. The next time they ran one play on the Princeton 46 only to have Tom Cannon’s fumble recovered by Don Cohn. Twenty-two first downs for Princeton to a lonely five for Har-; vard probably tells the story as well as anything. The Tigers moved for 355 yards on the ground and 138 in the air to the delight of most of the crowd of 37.000. Smashing back after Moffie’s dazzling run for Harvard, Princeton 1 rolled 80 yards in 14 plays on an ef . fective mixture of ground smashes! by John Weber and Val Wagner’s! passing. Wagner’s toss to End ! Reed covered the final 10 yards. Scores Standing Up. George Sella accounted for a sec ond period score as he took Wag net’s short pass on the line of scrimmage while the Harvard de fense scattered to cover other re ceivers. Sella scored standing up! on a 13-yard run. Fumbles by Harvard turned the | | game into a rout in the third quar- j ter.

Some 2,993 persons turned out to see the powerful invaders put up a stirring battle on a floor made slippery by humidity, but the Caps outran and outclassed their op ponents with some great basket ball during the last three- quarters. Minneapolis obviously centered its hopes around the towering 6-ft., 10-in. Mikan, who cashed six field goals and 15 of 16 fouls, but he was not enough. Particulary so, wThen Bones McKinney, Washington’s col orful veteran, came through with a smashing performance that netted him eight field goals and as many fouls for 24 points. The Capitols won without the last-quarter services of Kleggie Hermsen, their 6-9 center, who re tired from action in the third quar ter with five personals. Capt. Bob Feerick plopped in 17 points and Fredie Scolari 10, four of the lat ter’s five field goals being of spec tacular order and when most needed. The Lakers pushed away to a great start in the first period when Jim Pollard tallied and Mikan connected with a free throw and fielder to make It. 5-0. They apparently bewildered Washington with their early attack and were leading at one time, 11-4, s but McKinney and Feerick sparked’ a comeback that pulled the Capsj within a 11-14 margin at the quarter. | The Caps' speed and passing game started paying off during an eventful second period when the Feerick-Sco lari combinationn got rolling. It was nip and tuck most of the way, but the local pros rounded into full stride in the fading minutes and Feerick and Scolari. fired quickies from the floor to earn Washington a 37-27 margin at halftime. Minneapolis continuued pressing during a hard-fought third stanza, but the Capitols matched their pace and McKinney teamed with Feerick, ‘Scolari, Matt Zunic and John Nor ’ lander in gaining the locals a 47-41 edge at tthe three-quarter mark. Washington continued its brilliant all-around play down to the finish, staving off repeated Minneapolis bids as McKinney, Feerick and Norlander ! provided the victory punch. i Wash. G.F.Pts. Minn.

Tar Heels Drive To 7-7 Deadlock In Third Period By Merrell Whittlesey Star Staff Correspondent CHAPEL HILL, Nov. 6.—You’d never believe it after looking at the statistics, but William and Mary held mighty North Carolina to a 7-7 tie today after being outplayed from here to, Williamsburg. In fact, it iS not stretching a point to say that Carolina—which started it's 13-game winning streak against William and Mary last year—was a SpaWSttES drive of 78 yards they were stopped colder than 15 below, only to regain the ball and pick up yard age on two penalties against the Indians. The 43,000 fans—including seven scouts from the University of Mary land-watched the Tar Heels roll up 17 first downs to one. But most of their ground gaining by their bril liant one-two-punch, Charley Jus tice and Hosea Rodgers, was ac complished in harmless fashion be tween the 30-yard lines. Carolina probably will better its standing as the second-best de fensive club in the Nation—but that is small consolation to a team that was a 28-point favorite. William and Mary, remember, had been beaten by St. Bonaventure in addi tion to Wake Forest. Indians "Play It Safe* Using the two-complete-teams system, Coach Carl Snavely watched his defensive club hold the Indians to a net 19 yards rushing and 22 through the air. Without a sem blance of an offense, William and Mary obviously was playing for a deadlock after Carolina tied it up In the third period. Maryland, awaiting its major test against the Tar Heels next Satur day in Griffith Stadium in Wash ington, undoubtedly took heart by the Indians’ performance against Carolina today. For the Indians, a game, but dead-tired bunch at the final gun, proved Carolina is no su per team. An Arlington iVa.) product, Wash ington-Lee High's Billy Hayes, once the District's outstanding schoolboy back, was sent in to pitch the Tar Heels to a touchdown in the fading seconds of the game. But his last lorward was intercepted by Joe Mara of William and Mary, who was stopped on the Tar Heels’ 21 at the finish. The Tar Heels have only them selves to blame for several of their mishaps. Three times they lost the ball on fumbles—with Ralph Floyd, Tommy Thompson and Pat Hag gerty on the pickups for the In dians—and four times the Tar Heels had passes intercepted—by Tommy Korczowski, Henry Blanc, Lou Hoitsma and Mark. Lex’s Punting Helps W. & M. William and Mary threw all its five passes in the first half and in the second stuck to the ground for fear that one of the Tar Heels’ breakaway backs would intercept and break up the ball game. Thomp son, Hoitsma and Cloud particularly were outstanding on defense for the visitors, with Center Thompson the best defensive player of the day. The Indians owe much, too, to Buddy Lex, who quick-kicked and punted for a 54-yard average in the first half. His average dropped to 43 for the game, but that’s not bad for 15 punts—all under pressure. Just a few moments after the first rain drop fell on this hot, humid day, William and Mary scored its touchdown—at 3:20 of the second period. Rodgers fumbled going through the line and Floyd of the Indians recovered. Cloud made two (See NORTH CAROLINA, Pg7B^5j Terps Win Under Wraps At South Carolina, 19-7 By Francis Stann Star Staff Correspondent COLUMBIA, S. C., Nov.—Mary land’s bowl-hopeful eleven, confin ing its offense before the eyes of rival scouts to a handful of plays, marred South Carolina’s homecom jing celebration today by scoring a 119 to 7 victory before 12,000 spec ! tators in a listless exhibition en | livened chiefly by blinding rain i squalls. The Terps never were forced to take off the wraps as they swept I to a 7-0 lead early in the second j period and later were helped to two more touchdowns by the fumb ling, frequently offside Gamecocks who weje drdpping their fourth straight decision. * j Maryland was impressive when it restricted its attack to the ground, rolling up 238 yards by rushing, but Quarterback Vic Turyn had a hor rible day when he passed, complet ing one of 12 aerials. Ironically, Turyn’s lone success scored the first land easily the most legitimate of the Terrapins’ touchdowns. For the drenched partisans who braved the afternoon in South Caro lina’s unpainted, unswept and un washed stadium, there was a single triumphal chord when, less than four minutes before the end. Half back Steve Wadiak ran 65 yards down the puddle-pocked field for the | Gamecocks' lone touchdown. The score recalled last year's game in which Maryland also held a 19-0 lead m the fourth period and South Carolina came back to score 13 points. All the run today served to do, however, was to put Rex En right’s team on the scoreboard. Terps Score in Second Period. Prior to the dash by the speedy Wadiak, fastist man on the field, the Gamecocks’ twin peaks of success were to reach Maryland’s 49, both times in the opening quarter. South Carolina fumbled eight times and lost the ball four times. Maryland recovered its own fumble to get its second score and an enemy fumble was claimed for a touchdown behind the Gamecocks' goal. Maryland's first touchdown was I recorded after 1:12 of the second period, but it was born in the first quarter when south Carolina, which had resisted a Maryland drive on its 25, lost on three successive plays and punted out. Harold Hagan kicked and Jim La Rue brought the ball back to the host team s 37. Maryland worked harder and showed more variety in attack at .this point than at any time in the : game. Johnny Idzik picked up nine ] yards after Turyn had lost a couple and Earl Roth gained 11 after taking a lateral from Turyn as the open ing period ended. Turyn was thrown for a 9-yard loss on the first play of the new' inning, but Hubie Werner ran for 12 and Roth plunged to the 9 for a first down. Turyn's bad passing luck persisted when his attempt to hit Stan Karnish over the goal vas thwarted and ’Werner was stopped cold at the center of the line. On third down, however, Turyn passed to End Ted Betz for the touchdown. Bob Dean converted. Fumbles Help Maryland. South Carolina, consistently fum ibling and having gains nullified by | offside penalties, helped the Terra pins a few minutes later when Haif ; back Bishop Strickland fumbled and Ray Krause, 245-pound sophomore tackle from Washington, recovered for Maryland on the Gamecocks 20. It required only three plays to score, but the method was on >,he novel side After Harry Bonk had rushed for eight and Werner for nine, reaching South Carolina’s 3, Turyn sent Werner off tackle. Hubie was hit hard and fumbled, but the ball bounced directly in front of Turyn, who picked it up and stepped Big Games Yesterday (Complete Scores on Page B-2.) Maryland 19_S. Carolina 7 G.

Maryland, which incidentally has! j participated in four homecoming j : games this year and lost only at its own—Duke winning a 13-12 heart ] breaker—appeared under even more restraint in the second half. Early jin the third period, Strickland ran 18 yards to Maryland's 47, but an offside penalty voided the gain and j ] thereafter, as the rain persisted and the ball became more slippery, play on both sides became correspond ingly sloppier. After a punt by Bonk had sailed out on the Gamecock's 14, Quar-; ; terback Ed Pasky fumbled and Guard Tom McHugh recovered for Maryland on the 6. This oppcrtun ! ity the Terrapins muffed, first draw ing a 15-yard penalty for illegal use of the hands and then missing two over-the goal passes. On Turyn's next effort the ball was intercepted by Bayard Pickett, who ran to his 20. Wadiak Averts Shutout. On Carolina's first play, Dan Har relson, a third butter-fingered quar terback, fumbled and Capt. Gene Kinney recovered for the Terps on the 27. Bonk plunged for 9 and Werner ran for a first down on the 14, but again Maryland's offense stalled and Coach Jim Tatum ordered that rarity in modern football—a drop kick by Roth. The effort was low. Maryland, however, didn’t blow its third straight golden opportunity, also with the compliments of the Gamecocks. Early in the final pe riod, Roth put his foot into a boom ing punt that went out on South Carolina's 7. Three plays gained nothing and on the fourth down Pullback Ashley Phillips dropped back to kick. The pass from center squirted out of his hands—the field now was a quagmire—and Elmer Wingate, a Maryland end, fell on the greased pigskin for a touchdown that made it 19-0. That score, plus another squall, began sending the home-comers home, but for those who stayed there remained the run by Wadiak, a freshman playing under the serv icemen’s rule. Maryland had pounded down to South Carolina’s 25 when Turyn fumbled the muddy ball and Phil Ball, a guard, recov ered for South Carolina on the 30. Maryland drew an offensive penalty and then Wadiak broke loose. He drifted to his left on first down, found a hole in the Maryland line, shook off two Terp secondaries and outran the others down the sidelines, cleats kicking up mud all the 65 yards. Colorado 28-14 Victor BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 6 <7P).— Colorado’s Golden Buffaloes swept across the goal line three times in the fourth quarter today to beat a stubborn Utah State football team, 28-14, before 15,000 fana. Colonials Storm Citadel, 14-0, in Final Quarter (Picture on Page B-5.) By George Huber Star Staff Correspondtnt CHARLESTON. S. C., Nov. 6— A keyed-up Citadel football team held favored George Washington in check for 3'j periods before 8,000 home coming fans this afternoon, but in the end Handy Andy Davis proved too much for the Bulldogs. He led the late Colonial attack that burst through for two touchdowns in the pnal period afidja |4-0 victory. » ’ Davis' passing set up one touch down and he scored one himself as he picked up 52 yards rushing and 109 passing to raise his season’s total to 1.042. The Citadel Bulldogs, pepped up to win this one for their Coach Quinn Decker who had submitted his resignation the day before, fought the Colonials evenly through most of the game. Decker's job looks safe enough. Not only did the Bulldogs do a bang-up job today, but his resignation was turned down yesterday by the athletic advisory committee and a new five-year can tract was offered him. Spangler Gets Across. The Colonials made several earlier bids for a score before they con ducted a drive that clicked midway through the final period. The stiff, cross-field wind that hampered passing and punting all day took charge of a boot by The Citadel’s Bob Boyd and gave it to G. W. on the Bulldog 37. Davis inserted a 10-yard romp around right end in between good passes to Hank Bar telloni and John Yednock that carried to The Citadel’s 2. Bill Spangler cracked the line twice to score. Shortly thereafter. Johnny Grin nell, a Washington-Lee High prod uct. intercepted a pass and returned I It 20 yards to The Citadel’s 16. Joe Bemot smashed through for 10 yards and Davis ended the drive by slip ping six yards outside right tackle. Frank Cavello converted both scores. Davis completed only 10 of 19 passes for 109 yards, but that was considerable considering the handi cap of the strong and gusty wind under which he worked. The Bull dogs failed to complete one of their five aerials, and it made a difference. They outgained the Colcfnials on the ground. Other G. W. Bids Halted. The Bulldogs turned back two other Colonial bids for scores. In i the second period, Davis was at the helm of a Colonial march that car ried 52 yards before it was stopped t (SeeCOLONIALS, Page B-f.) Penn State Gives Quakers First'48 Setback, 13-0 (Picture on Page B-4.) By Gayle Talbot Associated Press Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 6.—Two perfect plays from which Pullback Francis Rogel spun touchdowns from 44 and 13 yards out enabled the rugged Nittany Lions of Penn State to subdue Penn’s punchless Quakers, 13 to 0, before an overflow throng of 80,000 today. The defeat at the hands of their' traditional rivals knocked the Quakers from the ranks of the Nation’s undefeated teams and j boosted State’s bowl stock out of sight. It was the 16th straight game over the,past two seasons in which! the Lions Rave escaped daf I feat. Penn, which meets Army in the; East's big game next week, gained1 only 28 yards by rushing through State’s great defense bulwarked by Paul Kelly and Wally Triplett. The; Quakers threatened only once to score on the wings of its passing attack in the third period. At the' end of the struggle, there was small doubt in the minds of the banked thousands in Franklin Field that the better team had won. Rogel, the offensive star of the game, whirled off his left tackle, found a clear opening through the Penn secondary- and whisked 44 yards for the first score in the sec ond quarter, capping a State drive which ate up a total of 88 yards in eight plays. The raw power of State’s running attack from the single wing featured the march. Switching signals early in the final period, the versatile State ma chine took to the air and with Elwood Petchel, the “Flying Frag ment,” hitting his receivers with deadly accuracy, shot to another touchdown in two plays. On the first one, Petchel zipped a short pvs to Sam Tamburo just across the scrimmage line. Tamburo dodged and raced his way 52 yards to the 13 before Chuck Bednarik. Penn's great center, knocked him out of bounds with a despairing dive. Petchel then pegged one far into the end zone and Rogel gathered the ball in as he fell sprawling. Carl Sturges, State's extra-point specialist, broke even on his two tries—not that it mattered. First Score Spectacular. The first touchdown was the more spectacular. Rogel wound up with the ball after considerable deception had been practiced by State’s back fielders. Bednarik was drawn from the ball-carrier's path. With Penn’s pride and joy out of it. the rest was fairly simple. One Penn tackier 1 grasped Rogel as he threaded through the line, but the State back spun away $nd was gone, never again to be touched. Penn did not make a first down until late in the second quarter, O'Neill Fired as Detroit Pilot After Six Seasons at Helm By the Associated Press DETROIT. Nov. 6.—Steve O’Neil], who gave Detroit one world cham pionship and three American League runner-up clubs in his six-year stay here, was fired today as manager of the Tigers. He was the seventh major league pilot to lose his job this year. One of the other six, Stanley (Bucky) Harris, deposed New York Yankees manager, has been rumor ed as a likely successor to O’Neill. Other possibilities include Paul Richards, former Tiger catcher who now manages Buffalo in the Inter national League, and Roger (Doc) Cramer, Detroit coach. An announcement from Detroit General Manager Billy Evans said no successor has been chosen. It said O’Neill’s contract is not beftig renewed for 1949 because of a be lief “that a change in field man agement would be desirable.” Evans’ statement said the De troit management “is keenly ap preciative” of O’Neill’s six years of “loyal and conscientious serv ice.” O’Neill, reached at his home in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, said he had no plans for the future. He said he hadn’t “given it a thought” before receiving a telegram from Evans. Shortly before that he had received the news of his dismissal from newsmen. O’Neill, who came out|pf Minooka, # Harris Says Tigers Haven't Bid for Him Bucky Harris has not been contacted by Detroit officials in regard to managing the Detroit Tigers. Harris, who attended the Penn State-Pennsylvania football game yesterday, said he wasn’t aware of Steve O’Neill’s release until reached at Phila delphia last night by The Star. “I imagine they’re looking elsewhere for a manager,” said Bucky, “because if they were considering me I’m certain I would have heard from Detroit officials by this time.” Pa., as one of four brothers to be come major league players, took over the Detroit reins from Del Baker in 1943. That year the Tigers wound up in fifth place, the same as last season. ^ In between those' years, however, the Tigers finished second to St. Louis in 1944, won the World Series, from the Chicago Cubs in 1945, ended up second behind Boston in 1946 and runner-up to New York in 1947. Last season was O’Neill’s 18th as a manager and his ninth in the American League. Of his 17 years as a player he spent 13 as catcher for the Cleveland Ind%ns. | The Lineups | PENN STATE.

On the succeeding two plays, Kelly, State’s terrific guard, broke through to smear Bagnel for losses of 11 and 12 yards. Penn’s second and final offensive gesture came in the third period, when it again had a stiff wind at its back. This time, with Bill Rhoads ripping off a 13-yarder around end and Bagnell passing to Carmen Fal cone for 16, the Quakers drove briskly to a first down on State's 4. Penn Barely Misses Score. An attempted end run lost four yards, two passes went wild, and on fourth down the Red and Blue still had eight to go. ralcone went far out to the left and Bagnell’s pass hit him about the 2 at the same ; time that Triplett, State’s star Negro back, smashed into him. They went down battling and when the pile was untangled the referee found Penn had missed its score by about a foot of grass. A few moments later, after State had punted out safely and A1 Sica of Penn had made a 20-yard run back, Bagnell uncorked another fourth down pass into the end zone. Just as Lou Roberts, an end, thought he had it in his hands, Triplett came out of nowhere again, leaped and deflected the ball just enough. With that. Penn's chances of stretching its record of 14 games without a loss went up the spout. The Ivy League champs were through. They made only one more first down, late in the final period, just before the goal posts were ripped out of their sockets. Of State's 141 yards gained by rushing, Rogel accounted for 77 in 16 tries. Long State Runs Called Back. State’s rushing superiority over the Quakers would have been even more pronounced in the statistics but for the fact that a 20-yard run by Joe Colone and an 11-yarder by Triplett early in the game were called back because the Lions were caught using a five-man backfielc. Penn, which went into the game bearing the proud label, of the sec ond-best defensive outfit in the land, came out of it with nothing except bruises and contusions.
