NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

In the windup of Ivy League football action yesterday, Penn defeated Cornell 14 to 6 and Brown crushed Colgate 33 to 7.

Frank Riepl and Jack Hanlon tallied a touchdown apiece, both from within the ten yard line, in the Pensylvania win. The single Cornell marker followed a pass interference play against the Quakers as the final gun sounded. The Penn victory over Cornell coming after consecutive wins over Yale and Columbia adds up to Penn's first three-game winning streak since 1952.

Frank Finney of Brown accounted for three touchdowns as he led the Bruins to a 33 to 7 non-league victory over Colgate. The Brown quarterback lofted two touchdown passes and returned two interceptions for 121 yards--one for a 95-yard touchdown.

The win by Penn left the Quakers, Cornell and Brown in a fourth place tie in the Ivy League. Harvard wound up in seventh place in the league standings.

Spahn Wins Award

Warren Spahn, ace hurler of the world champion Milwaukee Braves and the biggest winner in the major leagues last season, was voted the Cy Young Award yesterday as the top pitcher in baseball.

The brilliant southpass, whose 21 victories were a prime factor in Milwaukee's first National League pennant, received all but one of the votes of the 16-man panel of baseball writers who participated in the annual poll. The other vote went to Dick Donovan, of Quincy, Mass., the Chicago White Sox' big righthander.
