Nearly600,000 To Witness 17 New Year Tilts Eastern All-Slars In Shrine Contest Heaviest Favorites By CHARLES EINSTEIX Intcmitloni! News Service Sports Writer The bowl runneth 'over tomorrow, , and nearly 600,000 college football Jans, holding nearly three million dollars' worth of tickets, will be on hand' to see- what happens at 11 Kew Year's Day games.' • With new records in total attendance and receipts already, assured, attention centers today on the harrowing affairs . that tomorrow's major bowl classics promise to be. • Of the nine top-drawer tncoun- ters, only one provides an instance •where one tearrfis more than a one- touchdowri favorite * over its opponent. That is the Shrine game at San Francisco, where the East All- Stars are favored by V~ points over the West. That game, the worthiest of all Kcw Year's Day .fo'otball matches MAPPING OM THE Big Jonathan Jenkins,- Frostburg's contribution to college football,"' Is thinking seriously of turning- pro. / The "Dartmouth ^ Strong Man", who ,7 captained the victorious North team in the Blue- Gray gridiron classic Christmas Day at Montgomery, Ala,, has been drafted- -by .the Philadel.phi a 1 Eagles, champions of the .National . Football League. Jonathan Jenkins Jenktas has a )so been contacted .by the .Baltimore LeaHy Prefers Northwestern In Rose Bowl Nolre.Danic Tutor Also Favors North Carolina In New Orleans Battle By FKANK LEAHY Notre Dame- Coach SOUTH BEND, Ind.— Tomorrow's- bowl battles ' enable us 'to enter; the predicting -profession once again, as national 'leaders 'ring down the cur' TARGET FOR TODAY •V'-.^"-"" k' '«v.~<v Frank Leahy -oimded attack Colts, . . in the eastern di- hospitals for crippled ., also serves to point up a weather dilemma which may plague over half the bowl stadia tomorrow.' Threatening rides, have been forecast lor the Shrine battle, and rain is distinctly & -possibility. • ' . Many ' Questions Unanswered But even' the weather. found it "tou.?ii to crack the bowl-game headlines today., with so many more questions still unanswered. Among the queries were these: •Can Northwestern, favored .by a touchdown, preserve the aura of Big Nine Rose Bowl supremacy over the Pacific Coast against tough, unbeaten California? Can steel-ribbed Oklahoma, the Big Seven Champion, handle favored and -unbeaten North Carolina In the Sugar Bowl? Will the expected •work to .the advantage of underdog Oregon in its. Cotton Bowl clash Trith Southern Methodist? ' Will thrice-beaten Texas toss" a razzle-dazzle knockout hook at favored Georiga In .the Orange-Bowl? What price-Clemson's first undefeated season in 52 years at the hands of favored Missouri in the 'Gator Bowl?. Those are only samples," There is more, much more, on the inside. Consider the case of Villanova, a • one-point choice over -Nevada and Etaa Heath in the Harbor Bowl.. Or that of Baylor, slimly favored to lubdue Wake Forest in the Dixie Bowl; or William & Mary, similarly chosen over Oklahoma,A. & M. in the Delta Bowl. The list hardly ends there. Cigar, Balad, • Sun, 'Prairie View, - Raisin, Tangerine, Flower -and Vulcan Bowls are on tap for fan consumption tomorrow, and even Fairbanks, Alaska, has squeezed Into" the act. - Tentatively."- scheduled, there, .as the^flay's^lStli: bowl game, is the Ice Bowl; pitting Ladd Field against the University of Alaska. This spectacle, however, is contingent upon many factors, one of them being the hope, that the sun will choose to rise- The smaller bowl games, however, are not to be scorned. Several of them arc likely to produce stirring football,-such as. that expected from the Cigar Bowl at Tampa, Fla., •where" the "Big-Little" teams of Missouri Valley and St. Thomas come to grips. \WU Meets Miners West Virginia and Texas Mines may .have something to say for themselves in the Sun' Bowl at El Paso, Tex., as might Drake and Arizona in the Salad Bowl at Phoenix, Ariz., and Occidental and Colorado Ai & M. in the Raisin Bowl at Fresno, Cal. Five crowds of 60.000 or over,-and four others".,of 20,000 or better will help make news, too. There'll be 63,000 ar, the Rose Bowl in-Pasadena Cal: 82,000 in the Sugar Bowl .at Xew Orleans, La.; 67,000 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Tex.; 61.000 in the Orange Bowl at Miami, Fla.; 60,000 at the Shrine game; 39.000 •at the 'Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla.;- 30,000 at the Delta Bowl in Memphis, Tenn.; 28,000 at the Dixie Bowl in Birmingham, Ala.; and 21,000 at .the Harbor Bowl in San Diego. Cal. Those totals will depend, to 'some extent at least,- on the caprice of the weather. Rain- is a possibility not only for the Shrine 'Game, but for the 'Orange and Dixie Bowls, and forecasts state skies will be overcast throughout bowl land.

From this corner, it appears that Georgia's "T" is just a little more potent'than .that brewed in Texas by Blair Cherry. Johnny Rauch's first-team experience should prove a differentiating factor as he'is compared with 'Texas' Paul Campbell. ' .The absence' of California and Oregon players frorri the West squad will weaken their- chances in . San Francisco.
