WEATHER MILD Dallas fftoriwrg ,; .!.. Afnl II, !Si:[, FOOTBALL SCORES INSIDE DALLAS, TEXAS, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1951 TEXAS HITS SOONERS WITH THE MOSTEST, 9-7 Cotton Bowl Jinx Ended By Split T Victory Scoring all their points in the first quarter, the Longhorns crushed the most imposing of all their jinxes, the Cotton Bowl hex, and ended Okla- homa ' s three-year mastery over them. Coach Ed Price ' s Split T did what his predecessor ' s straight T couldn ' t do in three long years outscore the Sooner Split T. Almost as sweet was the taste of victory in the Dallas Stadium, where the Steers hadn ' t won in their last six attempts. Something new and something old in the way of heroes livened the tussle. Bobby Dillon, an old-timer to the limelight, tackled Frank Silva in the Sooner end zone for a two-point safety that was the margin of victory. Long-time reserve halfback Carl Mayes moved up from the " also ran " group as he paced all runners with 102 yards rushing and scored Texas ' only touchdown. Mayes started after regular Gib Dawson did not play as his father suffered a fatal heart attack shortly before the game. Oklahoma ' s all- American tackle, Jim Weatherall, was hard to handle for Texas blockers, messing up several Steer thrusts with his jarring tackles. Their chief running threat, halfback Billy Vessels, was injured early in the game. T Jones moved ahead of Dan Page in the quarterback race, playing one of his greatest games. He was later named to OU ' s all-opponent team. This was the Longhorns ' sweetest triumph. Seated among t he capacity crowd of 76,000 were some 10,000 UT students, who eyed Oklahoma ' s goal posts at regular intervals as the game progressed. But after the final whistle, a group of TCU students beat the Longhorn rooters to them.

WEATHER CLOUDY jhtufctg FOOTBALL SCORES INSIDE AUSTIN, TEXAS, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1951 STEERS FINER THAN NORTH CAROLINA 45-20 Split T Clicks as Texas Plasters Tarheels The weather-conscious North Caro- lina Tarheels found themselves in the center of an Orange and White Texas norther in their second visit to Memorial Stadium and, when the winds died, were wrapped around the 20 end of a 45-20 score. Halfback Gib Dawson found his elusive stride and paired with fullback Dick Ochoa and a host of substitutes to grind out 442 yards aground. Daw- son scored the game ' s first touchdown on a short pass from T. Jones, then added the day ' s top thrill with a 56- yard paydirt scamper. He gained 144 yards for the day. Ochoa, subbing for injured Byron Townsend, took his hero post early, contributing 122 yards and a bullish 48-yard touchdown run. The Tarheels led in the first quar- ter, 7-6, as Dick Weiss matched Daw- son ' s early touchdown and Abie Wil- liams added the single-pointer where Dawson failed. The lead was short, however, as the Steers marched long and far for three second period touch- downs, while the line stalwarts, led by Harley Sewell, Tom Stolhandske, and Bill Wilson held North Carolina scoreless. The Tarheels ushered out their passing game in the second half and Frank Wissman lifted the crowd from their seats with touchdown tosses of 46 and 48 yards. Texas ' secondary, which was rapidly assuming the name of " the anti-aircraft platoon, " punc- tured much of Wissman ' s threat by snaring four well-meant tosses. Long- horn reserves, spotted with a few key veterans, racked up three scores in the second half to provide a safe margin. T. Jones, Dean Smith, Jimmy Pace, and Carl Mayes were the producers. Following the game, Carolina Coach Carl Snavely managed to sum up Dawson in one word, " humdinger, " but needed more to describe Texas heat. N. C.

WEATHER MILD ARKANSAS?! It TRAVELING SINCE 1894 RAVEIER UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS FAYETTEVILLE FOOTBALL SCORES INSIDE FAYETTEVILLE, ARK., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1951 OL ' RAZORBACKS CUT IN; HOG 16-14 WIN Twelve-Year Drouth Ends for Arkansas For twelve long years the Arkansas Razorbacks had yielded to Texas on the gridiron. Arkansas ' governor Sid McMath and school president Lewis W. Jones took official steps to water the drouth with their joint declaration of " Beat Texas Week. " A brawny set of Razorback gridders responded to the cry, tumbling the Long- horns 16-14 before a delirious Fayetteville crowd. A two-yard field goal by senior end Pat Sumerall was the difference. Arkansas scored first after grabbing a first period Steer fumble. Halfback Buddy Sutton ' s 13-yard off- tackle surge did the damage. Texas came back early in the second quarter to move ahead 7-6. Gib Dawson, who had missed most of the week ' s prac- tice to attend his father ' s funeral in Ari- zona, flashed 78 thrilling yards to set Texas even, then booted the extra point that sent them ahead. Arkansas ' fine sophomore quarterback Lamar McHan then put on a terrific show for the home folk, mixing in dangerous, last-minute pitchouts with sound running and effective passing to keep his team apace with the " Beat " theme of the occa- sion. Speedy half back Jack Troxell fur- nished 40 of the 60 yards in the hosts ' second payoff drive. Another thrust moved 67 yards to Texas ' one, where the Steers held three downs, then bowed to Sumer- all ' s field goal. Behind 16-7 in the third period, the Longhorns fashioned a last-period scoring drive climaxed by Dan Page ' s 14-yard pass to end Tom Stolhandske, but that was their last. Line standouts for Texas were old- faithfuls Harley Sewell and Tom Stol- handske, while Dawson was " the boy " of the backfield. Greatest single factor in Arkansas ' vic- tory was their bulky, rock-ribbed line, which was lead by the great double-duty center Bob Griffin. Texas Ark.
