Coach John Barnhttl i.s concerned over the fact that they have scored only one touchdown in their last three games.

Wilbur figures how far "in the red" a team fin- ishes-thai is, by how many points it is defeated . . . Notre Dame Oklahoma, Army and California among the major teams, have no deficit points since they haven't been beaten . . . Villanova comes next, losing one game by a two-point margin . . . Then you have Rice and Maryland, one-game losers by seven points; Cornell, loser by nine and Texas, which lias lost four games by a total of ton points. The LonEliorns lost by a touchdown lo mighty Oklahoma, by two points to Rice and by one eacli to Southern Methodist and Texas Christian ... If you figure It out by averages, the Texas defeats have been by 2\'- points apiece—which sounds more like betting odds than results of games. Bags Buck W. C.
