Coach Bible's Texans. lolling m the basement and with only one victory over the season, will try a switch in I he lineup. Knd Ned McDonald. Center James Watson and Fullback Wallace Lawsnn. with very little action this year will start the game in Coach Bible's search for a clicking combination. If it were not for Baylors winning streak, the Rice-Arkansas battle at Houston would rate lops. Rice, a stumblor at the start, has picked up the slack in successive victories over Texas and Auburn and will have il.s own aerial attack ready for the invading passing Porkers. Husky Ernie Ijiiin. a sophomore who rates as the best Rice blocker when ho isn't throwing touchdown passes, will be Rice's throat against tho Porker passing twins -Jack Robbins and Dwight Sloan The Arkansans haven't y«-t conceded their title to Baylor or anyone else and figure a Rice victory in their clei.sing league game will at least give them mathematical possibilities to repeat. Improved, but crippled, Southern Methodist wades into Texns A. and M".. the falltened favorites, at College Station. Coach Matty Bell's Methodists took Texas in stride last week while the Aggici were being covered up by Arkansas bombs Six Methodist backs will be incapacitated in some way or another while the Agmes. except for the loss of Halfback Bob Nesrsla. will be in their best condition of the year. Thr luckle.v; Texas Christians invade Shreveport for Ihc lone nitcrscctional skirmish against Cenlenary. and Coach Leo Meyer planned to give his untried sophomores a chance to show their wort)). Few regulars will be in the starting lineup but Meyer indicated they v.'ould be rushed into play if the Centenary Gonllemen cease to be gen- llemen.
