We agree, with Russ 100 per cent. . . . However, this department feels that every Silver Streak player that got into the game covered himself with glory.

W — Vet- Showdown Will Come This Saturday for Four Undefeated Midwest Conference Grid Teams The showdown Saturday for the four undefeated Midwest Conference teams—Lawrence, Monmouth, St. Olaf and Coe—when Lawrence travels to St. Olaf and Monmouth visits Coe. These four have outclassed other five teams, scoring 471 points to 112 for their Conference opposition in 13 games. During the next three weeks each of these four will play two of the other three, in what should prove to be one of the most interesting finishes in the history of the Conference. The two highest scoring elevens,! the Lawrence Vikings and the St. Olaf Lions, will meet at Northfield, Minn., in a Homecoming tussle. The Vikings have averaged 45 points to 3 for their conference opponents in 4 games. Their most recent triumph was a 62-0 shellacking of Ripon before a Ripon Homecoming crowd. While this was going on, the St. Olaf Lions were similarly ruining a Carleton Homecoming by downing the Carls 34-0. The Lions have averaged 41 points to 10 against conference foes. The Lions will be out to avenge a 28-13 beating at Lawrence last year. Since neither! team has really been tested as will come thislyear's 15-6 triumph over the Pioneers. The strong showing made by the Rams against the Coe Kohawks for the first three quarters this past Saturday indicates they may be beginning to the!roll under their new coach, Jim Dutcher. The Rams actually led M to 13 at one place in the 3rd period before their Homecoming crowd, before the Kohawk long range passes snowed them under. The Pioneers lost this past week to a powerful Wasbash crew, 33-12, in a non-conference tilt. Both Ripon and Carleton will be trying to hit the come-back trail this week when they meet at Carleton before a Parents Day crowd. Each owns an initial win over Cornell, followed by nothing but grief. The Ripon Rcdmcn have lost to Monmouth (36-15) and Lawrence (62-0), whereas the Carls have boweri to Monmouth (25-7), Lawrence (20-6), Knox (27-7) and St. Olaf (34-0). Knox plays host to Omaha University in the only non-conference game on the slate. Highlights of Saturday Games Coe 40, Cornell 14: For a little more than half the game it was a w jl'j!see-saw battle, with the yet, no one knows which come through better when thejRams actually leading briefly 14- pressure is on.

Both teams have versatile;and Ron Brown one each for Cor- attacks, combining powerful run-|nell. The game was played before a Centennial Homecoming crowd of 3500. ' . St. Olaf 34, punting of Barry Frakes was an. important factor here. He got oft kicks of 60 yards and 45 yards. Monmouth was threatening on the Knox 28 when the game ended. * Lawrence 62, Ripon 0: The Lawrence Vikings completely out* classed the Ripon Redmcn, scoring almost at wilt. The Vikings marched for a touchdown each time they got the hall In ^.he first half, and never did have to punt during the entire game. Only an 80-0 victory posted by Ripon In 1894 tops the one-sided margin roiled up by the Vikings Saturday. Carl Stumpf, speedy Lawrence left halfback, scored 3 touchdowns and kicked 7 extra points. Fullback Roger Stiles also made three TD's. Ed Grosse, Viking halfback, who scored one TD on a 4-yard punt return, was the leading ground-gainer with 78 yards in 9 carries. He also completed 8 passes for 126 yards. Reserve halfback Mcrlyn Trumbower provided two of the games thrills. He returned a punt 59 yards for one score and ran 82 yards with an intercepted pass for the final tally. The Redmenmade their only Cornell;bid for a score in the final minutes, when a flurry of passes took them to the Viking 17.

OR — For the first time in many months, World Jockey Champion Willie Shoemaker has gone two straight days without a winner. Shoes was blanked on six mounts yesterday, and on eight Saturday. That's 14 straight. Early last week, he went 12 races between visits to the winner's circle. Shoes, who rode two winners Friday to run his year's victories to 392 and break Tony DeSpirito's 390 record s^t last year, doesn't know what his longest losing streak was. His valet, Dunice DuBois, says about 22, at Santa Anita last winter. Shoemaker had two seconds add three thirds yesterday. He has six more mounts today. After last week's 23-14 victory over Pittsburgh, Notre Dame polled 57 first-places votes out of 134 cast in the fourth weekly As sociated Press ranking poll. The Irish haven't been displaced since the nation's sports writers and broadcasters picked them in the preseason poll as the team most likely to succeed. But their two closest rivals in the weekly balloting, Michigan State and Maryland, were closer than ever before when the points were totaled up on the usual basis of 10 points for a first-place vote, nine for second, etc. Notre Dame wound up with 1,153 points and a margin of only 46 points over runner-up Michigan State. A week ago, Notre Dame had 74 first-place votes and-1,226 points to 14 and 977 for Michigan State. Notre Dame plays fourth-ranked Georgia Tech Saturday in a game that could completely upset the standings. Tech, a team that didn't show much of f e n s e in its early games, got started against Tulane a week ago and rolled over threatening Auburn by a 36-6 count last Saturday to climb from sixth place to fourth in the rankings. Michigan State, an easy winner over Indiana, collected 31 votes for first place and 1,107 points this week while Maryland, breezing past North Carolina as easily as its-| earlier opponents, polled 27 firsts and 1,004 points. Georgia Tech, with only three firsts, received 769 points. The top 10 (first-place votes in parentheses): 1. Notre Dame (57) 1153 2. Michigan State (31) 1107 3. Maryland (27) - 1004 4.

He staggered Flana gan in the first round with a right hook to the jaw, but that was the only solid punch he landed in the fight. Flanagan began landing freely in the third round with hard right hands over Marceilo's low left guard and took charge of the fight the rest of the way, gaining a wide margin on the cards of the referee and both judges.

They are rated heavy favorites' to dump the Panthers who have v.-on one and lost one in loop play to date. The Galesburg Silver Streaks will be host to the Kewanee Boiler makers in the only other Northwest Conference tilt. This battle looms as a toss-up with the Streaks out after their first loop win. The Roseville Panthers are presently in the driver's seat in the Little Six Conference with a loop record of three wins and no losses. And the Panthers need not fear of losing ground this week with all the teams, with the exception of the Knoxville Blue Bullets who have an open date, playing non conference, games. Aledo's upset victory over the Abingdon Commandos Friday gave Coach Don Viar's charges their first conference loss of the season. Their only other defeat came at the hands of the Monmouth" Zippers in a non-loop affair.
