(ft — A surgeon removed a frayed cartilage from New'York Yankee pitcher Vic Raschi's knee yesterday, and later said he was conlident, the knee "will be a !l right." The operation on the big Yankee righthander was performed In Johns Hopkins hospital by Dr. George E. Bennett, a Baltimore necfalist. Rascht was on the operating table a little more than an hour. How long he'll have to stay in the hospital depends on how the *nee heals and other factors, a Hospital spokesman said. Raschi said he first injured the knee when lie slid home into catcher Jim Hegan in a game at Cleveland in July. 1050. He hurt it Hgain this year. Although he said it "directed ray pitching and walking" so that he "couldn't pitch at full strength more than five or six Innings," Raschi compiled an impressive 21-10 record last season. He was credited with winning the last game of the world series in which the Yankees beat the New York Giants of the National League, although he was removed in the seventh inning. Hog-Aggie Clash An'Experiment' Porks to Match Top Defense Against T&M's Top Offense By Carl Bell FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Nov. 2. </P| —It won't quit* be a case of an ir- restible force against an Immovable object, but the football game h«e tomorrow between Texas A. & M and A'^'irtsas should be nn interesting experiment. A. &. M. has the best offense in the Southwest Conference; Arkansas the best defense, conference statistics show. The Aggies, with probably the lincsl all-around backtleld in the league, have' advanced the ball 2,23; yards in six games—an average of 312 per tilt. And 1,493 of those yards been ground out by a rushing attack featuring breakaway runners Btily Titlwell and Glenn Lippmai and powerhouse fullback .Bob Smith. Lippmau is the conference leading rusher with 426 yards on 61 carries. Also, in six games, Arkansas' Ra-1 zorbacks have yielded but 1,194 yards—an average of 196 a game— and only 713 on the ground. These figures would indicate that the two rivals for the feature of Arkansas' homecoming celebration were ranking right up at the top of the league. Instead, Arkansas is fifth with one conference win and two defeats, and A. & M., which was a pre-season title favorite, ts sixth with a loss, a tie and no victories. Injuries Hamper Hogs The answer to that apparent Irony is found in the statistical columns opposite to the ones in which the Aggies and the Razorbacks set the pace. A. & M.'s defense is the sixth best in the circuit, better only than TCU's. And Juniors Keep Unscored-On Record Intact with Easy Win; Edgmon Leads Way ^, Blytl'cvHle Junior Higli School's Papooses made It six shutout victories in a row here last night as they over- ' whelmed a smaller Osceola Junior High team 46-0 at Haley Field.

Arkansas' offejise is No. 6, topping only the attack of Rfce. Both teams are anxious to improve on recent performances, and. the Aggies are given the best chance to succeed.
