Back to the snowbound Rockies went a battered Colorado team but White, the all-American, could hold his chin up.

Rhodes scholar, Phi Beta Kyppa, great loot- ball player—that's who got the .thunderous ovation here. Professional football, said White, will get along without him. This decision respite reports a "bait" of nearly $15,000 would be dangled before his eyes. He's going to Oxford. Said Rice Coach Jimmy Kitts after the game: "Is he great?
