Top Prospect upon their Big Eight opponent Friday night since the Trojans' great effort so far this season to pull themselves off the mat in state grid circles. "I think we'll be ready to play a good game," Coach Russell Mosley said toriny. And from the spirited workouts the Tribe has been having this week that may be a slight understaw- ment. That doesn't mean Mosley is confident of victory over Hot Springs nt the resort city Friday nighi. "You never know what will happen in a football game," he pointed out. • But the Chicks appear really j ready to roll and should have no j physical injuries to keep them from | going at top speed. i McGuIre Hurts Leg: | Aside from the charley horse second string quarterback Steve McGuire picked up in the meat line yesterday, the Chicks are in fine condition, McGuire's injury is not expected to be long-lasting. The Chicks showed a lot of spirit and hustle in yesterday's session with cries of "let's beat Hot Springs" and "Get a Trojan" piercing the ftir between thuds and thumps of practice. But the Trojans won't be pushovers as they have been many times in the past several years. Though they've been beaten four times this year against only one win and one tie, the Warriors, from \ all reports, have good personnel j and the makings of a good team — not to mention the best coaching they've been exposed to for some time.

State got the ball on its own 17. Bruce stopped two state running plays and. on third down. broke up an attempted forward pass. Slate had to punt. The Mountaineers took -over and drove for a score with Bruce providing some good interference. This is not the first time Bosley has won lineman of the week honors. As a sophomore in 1953 he also gained the coveted award. Ends Tom Maentz oi Michigan, Joe Mobra of Oklahoma, Dick , Prenciergast of Notre Dame and I Dick Arm and of Holy Cross were 1 among other players nominated.

"Our entire line jumped at the ball, but Tittle, on his knecK, flicked his hands sit it and the ball popped into the air. The next thing I knew, Joe Perry was waiting for it with not a man on either team near him. Perry ran into the end zone and we lost another."

Navy will be the "toughest football i ieum" his Irish will ''nee nil year and his biggest worry is over Middie depth.
