St. Paul, Minn., Sept. 27—Displaying a
more diversified running attack than in
their opener against Cornell, St. Ambrose
registered their second win of the season
over St. Thomas, 13 to 0.
The Bees, using 31 players in all, piled
up 15 first downs to three for the Tommies and outgained their opponents by
rushing 259 yards to 47.

twenty-sixth consecutive conference triumph.

game and also accounted for all three
touchdowns. Joe Gstettenbauer scored
the first marker, scooping up a free ball
after John McNamee, freshman tackle,
blocked a Parson's punt. After Rotunno
had set up the second score with his flashing sprints, Bill Loomis lunged over center
from the two yard stripe to give the Bees
a I 2-0 advantage.
Bogging down in the middle two periods, the Bees waited until the waning
moments of the game to tally their third
touchdown when Rotunno intercepted a
Parson's pass and raced 45 yards for the
