(AP) — After watching the film of Texas Christian's 26-to-O triumph over Arkansas. Coach Jack Mitchell of the Razorbacks believes that his team "played a pretty good football game." The undefeated Horned Frogs! on the 2 and Texas Christian reestablished themselves as one of j covered the favorites in the conference. i OUR HERO U-^^_—_^-_—_-^.—-—~_~ .. &$ scenect by hi-5..

JZ~. They seldom made a mistake and capitalized on some Arkansas errors in takins a one-game lead in the Southwest Conference race. The Razorbacks now will have to whip Baylor at Waco next Saturday to retain even a chance at the Southwest Conference crown. Mitchell believes that the Hogs played good football for three quarters- discounting some desperation plays in the final period. i Most of the Porkers mistakes j were due to the tremendous middle j line pressure that was applied by' TCU's fine forward wall. The line stiffened three times when Arkansas moved into Horned Fro? territory. Line Opened Moles The linemen also opened enough holes for halfbacks Jim Swink and Ray Taylor. Center Hugh Pitt.s and tackle Norman Hamilton were the standouts for TCU. Hamilton took advantage of the Jirst of three pass interceptions in the first period. He grabbed n deflected pass and ran 30 yards to score the first Texas Christian touchdown. Swink, who picked up 74 yards in short gains, scored the next TCO touchdown on a six-yard run. He carried the ball four straight times after the Frogs reached the IB— and he went over the goal line on the fourth try. Arkansas missed a chance after taking the opening kickoff to the TCU 17. A fourth-down reverse was spotted by TCU's Bryan Engrarn and the play lost 5 yards. Forkers Miss Chance The Porkers missed another on- The Riizorbiicks made a tine comeback early in the third period, b'H again Texas Christian stiffened when the Ho^s sot close to the coal line, That drive penetrated to the 18.

Right now the Dodgers' staff looks stronger than Stengel's. The Brooks not only have the pitching but they're proven they have the (lower antj the sure-handed defense that goesjplish with nutkintr a championship ctnb.

Two-thirds of his regular outfeild. Mickey Mantle and Hank Bauer, is in bad shape. The other one third, Irv Noren, is going on n bad leg. But what about his pitching? He has a problem there, too, and he admitted as much when he refused lo take Bob Grim out of yesterday's 5-3 loss, even whn Grim was taking a pasting. "I didn't want to come in with all those guys from the bullpen like I did the other day." said Stengel. "In fact, if we had Lied it.

Six-Man Tag Bout to Top Legion Card nStiwa Oi-^aM fCU Only Clean Slate As SWC Takes Lumps By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Texas Christian was the only undefeated, untied team in the Southwest Conference Monday and the Horned Frogs were conceded a strong chance of staying that way.
