Tlie single wine may | be his answer. He also has a pass- catching fullback, junior Chuck Lima of Cincinnati, to keep an eye : on. Jimmy Morse, captain and right halfback, has recovered from an injury and will play, Brennan says. But the regular left half, Aubrey Lewis, still is doubtful with a sprained ankle. The pigskin will get plenty of j handling tonight when Edwards-j villc and Madison, two teams that j like to mix up passing and run-1 ning plays, meet on the Trojan field at 8 o'clock. ; Each has a 4-1 record for the ! season. Coach Bennie Isselhardt's Tigers have defeated Granite City, Wood River, Staunton and Belleville while losing to Collinsville by two points, 21-19. Coach Francis Dant's charges lost a 13-12 contest to Ro.xana .vhile winnng over Sparta, Granite City, Dupo and Civic Memorial. The Trojans defeated Granite City 12-7 the week after the Tigers took an 18-0 decision from the Warriors. The slick quarterbacking of Jimmy Chandler will spearhead the Edwardsville attack. Fullback Buzz Shaw will be ready to pick up yardage through the line or get on the receiving end of Chandler's passes. Bud Noll and Flem Bradshaw, two speedsters, will be at the halfback stops. Right guard Ron Pfeiffer, who missed last week's game, will dress tonight but is not expected to play. In his place will be Ron Lentz. Darl Hess will be at the other guard, with Bob Eilers at center. Levis Coultas and John Kays will be at tackles, and Rich Pulliam and Rich Hellinger at ends. Larry Ferguson, a halfback who can run and pass, leads the Madison offense.

The Cadets have won only once in four outings tliie season, and stand 0-1 in the conference. Country Day shares the lead with Principia, each with one victory.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The sudden, unexplainable ups and downs of college football already have been vividly displayed this fall. The season has reached the stage where coaches of top- rank teams are muttering, "Don't let it happen to me." "It," in this case, can mean either a horrible slump by a good team or an inspired performance by a steady loser. And it could happen this weekend to almost any of the leaders, from Michigan State to Miami. Oklahoma is excepted. It's a bit beyond credibility to imagine the top-ranked Sooners, needing only one victory to set a new major college winning record of 34 straight, blowing the decision to a free-scoring Kansas team which has won only one of four games. But Michigan Stale Coach Duffy Daugherty is battling over confidence as his second-rated Spartans prepare to face Notre Dame. "They'll be ready. When we tangle with Notre Dame, records mean nothing," Daugherty says. Injury-riddled Notre Dame will be. the underdog in a geftne for the ...... first time since 1952 and that may pass interceptions with ;;et back with the middleweight' be j'ust enough to fire up a team Giambra Meets Turner Tonight NEW YORK tfv-Crowd-pleasing Gil Turner, who has made almost as many television appearances as Rin Tin Tin, fights in front of the cameras again tonight as a 3-1 underdog against streaking Joey Giambra. This could be the last video shot in a long time for the 26-year-old Turner unless he finds his way back on the winning path. The muscular Philadelphian dropped his last three fights and his fistic rating has plummeted. Gil has had some 30 TV shots and usually pleased the fans with NEW YORK (av-Jack Hill of, his windmill attack. Lately the Utah State is pretty much a Jack of all trades when it comes to football. The weekly release of the NCAA statistical bureau shows the 185- pound senior halfback leading his 153-poumier has shown a tendency to tire about tlie eighth round. The onetime welterweight and middleweight contender may be nearing the end of the trail although his 50-13-1 record is a good one. Giambra, a handsome, dark- I haired, 25-year-old boxer-puncher, with 465 yards on 73 carries and| has won four straight in a drive to first five.
