The Chick's only touchdown cam? at the opening of the second period when Mosley flipped a. short pass to IJoyd from the Russellville eight yard line. Mosley contributed another point, when he converted with' a perfect drop kick, and that was ail the scoring except u safety In the third quarter as lesuli of a fumble behind the Russellville goal line. It was not a spectacular game, although the few fans who dared pneumonia as they huddled under - 'blankets in the cold stands loimd it well worth seeing. As expected, the visitors from the W^st came up with a stout light and might, with a. little lack ut the right times, have tied up the ball game. Once they • were within a scant two yards of a touchdown, first down and goal to go. but drew a costly five yard penalty and then .saw their chances fade when Besharse intercepted u third down pass, Wheeihorse for the visitors was • speedy 'Joe Simpson, who carried - the hod offensively and who had some worthy aid from Captain 2el Thigpen, but these boys were unable to offset Blytheville's superior power and ttiey merely succeeded » in making a good fight of it.

Georgetown-Boston College Game Holds Interest; . Unbeaten Teams Play BY HARRY PfiltttlJSON NEW" YORK, Nov. Hi. (UP) — The East, long the underdog in ijjlyr.sectionzi) football rivalry, pops up with tht> best, game in the country today at Boston where Georgetown and Boston College each risk their perfect records. An invitation to a bowl game undoubtedly awaits the victor in ih'is one. Not so 1 well known nationally as .some other teams, Georgetown und Boston- College probably could stand the pace in any league. Both have big. bruin- ing , lines. Boston probably will be tt slight favorite because' of a narrow -margin' of superiority in the backfiekl. but it Is anybody's ball gunie. 'Eleven unbeaten teams risk their records in today's games. Besides Boston College and Georgetown, three other unbeaten major teams are lefi in the £usi,~ CorneD. Penn State and Lafayette. The schedule for the best games in this section: Penn State vs. New York. University, Lafayette vs. Western Maryland, Cornell vs. Dartmouth, Columbia vs. Navy, Harvard vs. Brown, Pittsburgh vs. Nebraska. Princeton vs. Yale, Syracuse vs. Colgate. Two undefeated teams— Minnesota and Notre Dame — go into action in the Middle West. Notre Dame figures to 'have a fairly easy afternoon against Iowa, and Minnesota should not have too much trouble with Purdue unless, the .Gophers suffer a let-down from a hard schedule. Other West: Illinois State vs. Iowa State, Michigan vs. Northwestern, Oklahoma vs. Missouri, Wisconsin vs. Indiana. • Three undefeated teams remain in the South and only one of them— Texas A. & M.— should have any trouble today. The Texas Ag- gies go against a fairly strong Rice team, and Kimbrough & Co. will have to be on their toes to avoid an. upset. Mississippi State, unbeaten', has "a breather against Millsaps, 'and Tennessee, also undefeated, doesn't expect much trouble from Virginia. Some others in Dixie: Auburn vs. Louisiana State, Baylor vs. Tulsa, Georgia Tech .vs. Alabama, North Carolina vs. puke, Southern Methodist vs. Arkansas, Texas Christian vs. Texas, Tulane vs. Georgia. • ' ; . Stanford's magic Indians remain the only undefeated major team on the -Pacific Coast and today they clash" with Oregon State, which is capable of bringing about an upset it" the Stanford Houdini stuff fails , to work. Other games in the. Far West: California vs. Oregon, UCLA vs. Washington State, Washington vs. Southern California, Colorado vs. Brigham Young, Denver vs. Utah State, Utah vs. Colorado State. *- A Wildcat for Irish to Cornei Manila Society ^Personal Is He Worth It? &£LL$ ANOTfte-%'STAR With Southern" Cahioinia down.
