It almost lost that distinction Saturday, having to come from behind with a two-touchdown splurge in the fourth period to gain even a tie with the Aggies. Larry Isbell passed for the two touchdowns that were needed to keep the Oolden Bears in the nation's select circle.

Many of the players offered their blood but no one had the O- negative type. They were not permitted to see Jurney. Jurney's teammates left for Fay- ettevllle immediately after the game and didn't know of the operation until several hours later.
