Misery for Michigan State Maryland ' s Mighty Mo scores the first touchdown against a hahly rafecJ Spartan team. Spartan ' s shield is dented by Maryland drive A determined band of Terps swamped mighty Michigan State, 34-7, before 39,376 fans at East Lansing, Mich., to score one of the finest victories ever recorded by a Terp grid team. The triumph rocketed Maryland to eighth place in the national rankings and dumped State from their second place perch. The Old Liners put on their best defensive show of the season while stopping the high-powered Spar- tans. State gained only 140 yards rushing — 67 on one run by Sonny Grandelius. In the air, the Spartans threw 20 passes and completed only three. The Terps. meanwhile, snared six enemy tosses and converted two into scores. Maryland ' s savage line play was led by Bob Ward, Dick " Little Mo " Modzelewski, and Chet Gierula, who played his best game of the year. Offensively. Ed Modzelewski gained 5 5 yards and tallied two touchdowns — both in the first half. State crept to within 7-13, then a three-touchdown avalanche by the Terps in the last quarter clinched the game. Jack Scarbath tallied on a sneak, end Pete Ladygo on a 35-yard interception and Bob " Shoo Shoo " Shemonski on a 3 " ' -yard sprint after Jake Rowden ' s interception. Scarbath dazzled State with daring pitchouts. laterals, and option plays. Coach Jim Tatum was just as daring from the bench — ordering kickoffs when " form " said he should receive. This was the only loss suffered by the Spartans, enabling the Terps to gain just revenge. STATISTICS MICH. ST. MD.

The largest crowd ever to see a football game in the Wash- ington area, 43,836 fans, was on hand. Jack Scarbath, the Terps " 19-year-old sophomore quarterback, scored one touchdown and passed for two more to pace Maryland ' s attack. Evidently Scar- bath didn ' t read the pre-game reports which forecast a Navy win because of " inexperienced Maryland quarterbacks. " The Baltimore signal-caller scampered 2 1 yards for the first tally, then completed 44 and 59 yard pass plays to Ends Stan Karnash and Pete Augsburger for a 21-0 halftime lead. A great goal line stand by the Terps just before the half, which stopped two Middie thrusts from the six-inch line, changed the complexion of the contest. After a Navy score in the third period, Maryland tallied two quick touchdowns early in the final quarter to take a commanding 35-7 lead. End Elmer Wingate went 34 yards with an intercepted pass for the fourth Terp tally. Just 54 seconds later, after End Lew Weidensaul recovered a Navy fumble, Ed " Mighty Mo " Modzelewski plunged the last five yards into the end zone. The dead-game Middies fought back with two more tallies in the last nine minutes, but it was too late. The win was Maryland ' s second in the I2-game series with Navy, and the first since 1931. Terrapins take a 14 to lead on a 59 yard touchdown pass from Scarbath to Stan Karnash during second quarter. p ' »3|

In the second quarter, " Battleship " Dave Cianelli intercepts a pass and is convoyed by Jeff Keith and Jake Rov de Terps struggle to overcome underdog Hoyas Suffering a letdown after the great Michigan State victory, the Terps barely managed to stagger through to a 2 5-14 triumph over Georgetown in Washington ' s Griffith Stadium before a disappointing crowd of 8,869. The Hoyas, 27-point underdogs, trailed by only 14-18 with three minutes remaining. Then the slug- gish Terps made a drive of 36 yards to salt the win. After Fullback Ed Fullerton ran 24 yards to put the ball in position. Jack Scarbath, who gained 132 yards rushing, went the last six yards. Maryland had no trouble advancing the ball, pick- ing up 313 yards rushing and 118 passing, but they couldn ' t gain at the right time. Four Terp drives stalled within the Hoya ' s 10-yard line. Two rapid-fire safeties against Georgetown in the third period were the Terps ' margin of victory until the closing minutes of the game. One was automatic when Hoya Punter Joe Pallotta stepped out of the end zone, while Bob Ward slapped down Frank Mattingly for the other. The Terps scored first in the opening quarter on an eight-play, 95-yard drive, capped by FuUerton ' s eight-yard plunge. Georgetown came right back to tie it at 7-7 on a fourth down pass. Bob Shemonski went six yards around end to put the Old Liners ahead 14-7 in the second period. Jack Targarona, who averaged 40 yards punting, set up the score by kicking 70 yards out of a hole. On the return boot, Maryland picked up 30 yards.
