Elis Annihilate Crimson by Record 54-0

By Adam Clymer

NEW HAVEN, Nov. 23--Some well-spirited Yalie walking out of the Bowl just described this afternoon's exhibition as "Yale's greatest triumph of the century." For his information, the following facts should be noted:

1. On October 7, 1916, Yale beat Virginia, 61 to 3.

2. On October 5, 1929, Yale beat Vermont, 89 to 0.

3. On November 8, 1930, Yale beat Alfred, 66 to 0.

4. On November 16, 1935, Yale beat Lafayette, 55 to 0.

Otherwise, my inebriated companion may have been right. At any rate, he seemed to think that some of his schoolmates were "real shoe." In New Haven this is a good thing to be.

Whatever "shoe" may be, this fellow said Dick Winterbauer was it. This Winterbauer threw 12 passes, completing nine of them. Three went for touchdowns, and he gained 165 yards, or 14 more than Harvard gained, running and passing, in the entire contest. Winterbauer played about thirty minutes.

Passing for touchdowns is a habit for Winterbauer; he did it twenty times in his Yale career, which ended this afternoon. In fact, on one drive he had to do it twice, as the first toss, to Dick Winkler, was nullified by an offside. Undis- turbed, he waited a play, then fired to Mike Cavallon to make it official.

Harvard knew what Winterbauer was up to. At first, the Crimson tried to rush him. The Yale line did not yield, and consequently only once was Winterbauer hit before he could pass. For a while the Crimson covered receivers, halting the Yale drive that intervened between the third and fourth touchdowns. That was all.

Other Eli standouts included Herb Hallas, who scored three touchdowns; Gene Coker, whose thrusts up the middle kept the Harvard defense loose, and Cavallon, whose sure receiving, behind Harvard defenders, accounted for two touchdowns and 88 yards.

For Harvard, it was a pretty grim day all around. Several players were lost through injuries, and all three quarterbacks were hurt. Of the others, a few were not yet in condition after long idleness because of previous injuries.

Only on the first few plays of the game could the Crimson move on offense with confidence, and even that confidence proved its undoing. With Yale leading 7 to 0, Ron Johanson called for a run on the fourth down on the forty. Chet Boulris couldn't make it, and Yale drove for its second score.

Chris Hauge did an admirable job filling in at fullback, picking up 51 yards in 12 carries, but the others were simply overshadowed by the brilliance of Yale. The Elis just didn't do anything wrong.

Perhaps that Yalie wasn't thinking simply in terms of scores, but if he still Considers this THE GAME, he should be content with 54 to 0
