Scot Streak tit Danger <it Coe Saturday MONMOUTH —If history repeats itself Saturday evening, Monmouth's Scots are going to be an unhappy lot. A year ago the Scots were riding the crest of a five-game winning streak when Coe burst the bubble by squeaking out a 28-26 decision in a thrill-packed Monmouth Homecoming. Now once-again Monmouth will lay a five-game winning streak on the line at Cedar Rapids Saturday night, and to make the parallel even more exact, the Scots' five victims this year are the same teams which formed the schedule before Coe in 1952. Coe went on to win the league championship last year, with six victories and no defeats, while the Scots finished in third place with five wins and two losses. Just as last year's Coe-Monmouth game was a key event, Saturday's clash will help clear the title picture. Both Coe and Monmouth are undefeated in loop play, although the Kohawks fell before two non- league opponents, Iowa Teachers and Wabash. Their victories are over Knox, 26-12, and Cornell, 4014. The other undefeated league teams, St. Olaf and Lawrence, will meet at Northfield Saturday, so when the smoke clears the question of flag contenders should be a little more definite. If the Scots are to beat the Ko­ hawks and remain in the title chase, it will probably be due to their high class running attack. Led by Barry Frakes and Ronnie Williams, Monmouth's backs have piled up 1,258 rushing yards in 271 attempts, an average of 4.6 yards per carry. Frakes, who picked up 15 points in the Knox game, has boosted his production to a total of 88, including 13 touchdowns and ten extra MONMOUTH — The Monmouth community White Ele- + phant Sale held Wednesday evening at the Armory netted approximately $1,000 for the Nativity Scene Fund.

Grant Rayn and Col. Bill Porter had a busy night, strolling up and down the aisles calling for bids on the merchandise on display on long tables.
