Conversions Win Many Tilts By OSCAR FRA1EV NEW YORK, Oct. 30. (U.R)-The foot was back in footba today with the weekend payoff for more than 40 colleg grid teams in the booting ,of an extra point. The "educate toe," a long-neglected cliche as -well as a pediatric puzzlt in an unusual .number of ; games contributed the differenc between those hailed as heroes o booed.as bums. ' . ..-. ..

SO: (U.PJ--Led by eight big league bigwigs, 39 perfect record college football teams still were sticking around today, but 14 of their brethren fell with a crash on weekend excursions, Kentucky with saven. victories, California and Wyoming with six each, 'and " Southern Methodist, Princeton, Army, Oklahoma, and Miami with five .were the major leather pushers on the honor roll, but they had to vie statistlcallj' at least with the Swedes from Gustavus Adolphus of Minnesota, the Valparaiso Crusaders from Indiana, and little .old Lehigh with a mighty and ancient football tradition. Swedes Look Good Gustavus Adolphus had' won more games this year 1 than any other on the list, eight, so far. Pull of vim and vigor," Valparaiso-had the best-offensive mark, an average of 43;? points per game and a total of 262 for their- six triumphs. Lehigh's six victorias gave it the finest record for the :school_since the 1907 . season, when. the team also won six In a row to establish an all-time high. The midwest had 14 of the perfect 'record/team's while 12 were from the. east; five , in the'south, four on the.Pacific coast,'three In the : southwest, and one in the Rockies. Pennsylvania's six honor roll teams, Lehigh, Franklin Marshall, Bloomsburg, Carnegie Tech, Thiel, - and ' Drexel gave the 1 Keystone a wide margin. Wisconsin, Ohio. Florida, California, and West Virginia still had" three perfect record squads, apiece. Sooners 1 Streak, Long Oklahoma, ; which now has won 26 games to surpass any modern streak of solid victories since. Cornell won 26 in a row from 1921 through 1924, was the overall leader among the big teams. Army, which has dropped only two games In the last seven years, -had a run of 25 without defeat including :t\vo ties. Among the major unbeatens, Wyoming had the best offensive record 39.8 points per game, with a Gophers a 7- to-7 tie wit Michigan by nudging the ball hi tween the uprights. ' Boots Beat. Cats Johnny Coatta of Wisconsi passed a pair of touchdowns in th true .tradition, of an alr-minde generation of gridders, but even more important was the fact tha Johnny booted the conversion which supplied Wisconsin with 14 to 33 win over unbeaten North western. You've probably never heard o Johnny Bush, unless.you're a Yal rooter or one .of his klnfolks, bu he was Johnny-on-the-spot with two extra points which beat Holy Cross, 14 to 13. And -Walt Trill haase'-for the third time provided unbeaten Lehigh's- margin of vie tory as he footed three extra point- in a 21 to 18 conquest of Rutgers Yet, while there's a lot of kick Ing today over the- kicking Satur day. football still is up in the air .Michigan and Minnesota heavec the ball 29 .times in the first half alone and the passers.all over the nation continued to steal-the-major portion of the headlines. Some of the standouts were: 'Janowicz Is Star Vic' Janowicz," /who~ : - passed for four scores .and tallied twice in Ohio State's crunching 83 to 21 win over Iowa.-.. " '·' - jRufus Barkley flipped three touchdowns'in Virginia's 28 to 21 squeeze past West Virginia. - Babe Parllll completed 12 of 18 and one. touchdown, as Kentucky crowned Georgia Tech, 28 to 14.' - Jack Hackett hit on·: 16 of-26 for 165 -yards and two touchdowns a's unbeaten Miami floored Pitt, 28 to 0.

There were, of course, a number of young gentlemen still able to hobble-along afoot. One such was Al Pollard .of Army, who gained 155 yards in 16 tries--more yardage than 1 the.rival Columbia team combined--and sent the Cadets off on a 34- to 0 march with a- 66-yard louchdown sprint.- total of 239. points, '-.Princeton had a 36.2 point .average, just a shade ahead of Army With 34.4.
