Austin finished the season with an 8-0 record, good for the Big Nine Conference championship. They were followed in the ratings by International Falls, South St. Paul, Wlllmar, JLu- verne, Granite Falls, Minneapolis Southwest and St. Peter in the top ten. Of that group only International Falls has a defeat. Completing the select list are Moorhead, Redwood Falls, Harding, Duluth Denfeld, St. Paul Humboldt, Owatonna, Alexandria, Walnut Grove, New Prague, Fairmont and Lake Crystal tied for 20th, Morgan, St. Paul Park, Hawley, Roseau and Osseo.

Reese, although eccentric in his own passing this year, has been hitting at .309. Works Wilh-ut Cast He worked out without a cast Wednesday for the first time since he broke a bone In his right hand after the Michigan game. At that time it was viewed as all but certain that the New Yorker was through for the season. Reese alternated at quarterback with the second and fourth teams Wednesday. He has done some passing and is satisfied he coulc do acceptably well in that department against Michigan State. But his hand lacks the pliancy it should have for unhinderec handling of the ball, and Reese won't really know until Saturday whether to give it a try. Sophomores Joe Salem and Larry Johnson continued alternating as No. 1 quarter back in Wednesday's long drill devoted to play polishing. Ready for Spartans Also in uniform were veteran left half Bob Soltis and sophomore end Dick Johnson, neither o whom played in the Iowa or Indi ana games. Soltis is a longsho possibility to play Saturday. Arlie Bomstad, another experi enced halfback who has been ou for a mc-»h, definitely will be ready for the Spartans.

State and Minnesota will field the top two punters in the conference, and by a pretty fair margin. The Spartans' Dean Look is averaging 40.4 yards on 20 punts and Minnesota's Tom Robblns has a 39.1 average on 23 kicks. Teddy Smith of Indiana is third with a 37.9 average. Otherwise Minnesota's showiest player in the league's statistics derby is halfback Billy Kauth. The swift-starting little sophomore is By LARRY FRIEDMAN CLEVELAND (AP)-Haa Jimmy Brown slowed down in the last two Cleveland football games? "No, I don't think so," the 22- year-old fullback said. "At least I know I'm not doing anything different." In Cleveland's first five games, the power-running Negro piled up 815 yards rushing and 14 touchdowns. In the two losses to the New York Giants and Detroit, Brown was limited to 113 yards and one TD, and 83 yards and no scores, respectively. He was the National Football League's Rookie of the Year in 1957 when he led the league in rushing with 942 yards. Now, after seven games he has 1,011 yards and 15 touchdowns. The season records — both held by Steve Van Buren of the Philadelphia Eagles — are 1,146 yards and 18 touchdowns. "I'm not pressing or thinking about any records," Brown said. "I just try to do my best every game. Those records will take care of themselves." He is 6-foot-2, 228 pounds.
