This was done by ;.. iy Furfari, sports editor of Dominion News in Morgan-:n, W. Va., the home of the ountaineers. Furfari put in a .telephone call to coach Tom Hogers of the Dea ' cons earlier this week after Maryland had pretty well called its own shots in rolling to a 28-7 victory over the North Carolina team. West Virginia the Saturday previous had trounced the Deacons, 46-0. This is where the Monday morning quarterbacks, football experts and just plain agitators-in general got their ammunition. According to Rogers, at Furfari puts it: "A meeting between Maryland and West Virginia would be 'one hell of a football game'." Rogers declined to comment further, however, as to the relative strength of the two major powers. "I couldn't say which was the better team," Rogers explained. "It would be hard to compare the two." "But," Rogers continued, "I'll say this much: both have very fine squads and if it were possible for them to meet I think it would be one hell of a football game. I'd buy a ticket myself for $5." West Virginia is ranked 10th in the AP poll this week while the Terps are second to pacing Michigan, dropping from the No. 1, hey, spot of last Monday. The Terps and Mountaineers haven't met in football since 1951—Coach Lewis' second season at the WVU helm. And the two can't possibly clash this fall since both are playing the.maximum number of game: 10—allowed under NCAA regulations. "We aren*t as bad as we looked at Morganlown," Rogers pointed out. "But after looking at movies of the game, I'm surprised West Virginia didn't beat us even worse." The Wake Forest coach indicated that the Deacons did virtually nothing right against WVU, but be scoffed at the suggestion they might have been "looking ahead to Maryland." "We had our team pretty well set for the game, mentally, but the tackling, blocking and pass defense was terrible." Rogers had nothing but praise for the Mountaineers, however, "Art (Lewis) has a fine collection of football players up there. IIis[ third team didn't look any different than the first team to me 1 that day." He said he still feels that his first team at Wake Forest would be'.'a match for any other first eleven in the U. S. "But West Virginia has so darned many good boys we couldn't cope with them." '""Rogers admitted, however, that Ms Deacons "played better ball" against Maryland than against WVU. "Maryland presented about 1 the tame situation as West Virginia did;" he added. "Jim'Talum.had 44"players and we had only 29 who were' able to play." Rogers indicated that the-fwc teams' lines would compare pretty close — each big, rugged and fast -v'.bul that. the. Terps may have an--,edge in the backfield. He sa'i( there hardly is any.difference in Maryland's three quarterbacks. The Wake Forest coach was more specific in comparing Duke, like Maryland an Atlantic Coasl Conference power, with West Virginia. "Duke's line is not as big ind quite is good" as West Virginia's, but the Durham school "has wonderful backs" whom he ulled "better and faster" than those he siw at West Virginia. The Blue Devils arc ranket ahead of the Mountaineers in The United Press poll — In 10th plao — but are one notch behind — In lllh place — In The AP balloting "I think West .Virginia will go (Continued on Page 23) Moorefield, FranklinAnd Hawks After Second SJot One of the contenders for the .'otomac Valley Conference football title may fall into an also-ran role tomorrow when three games are listed in the league.

The loop frays are the only ones isted in the area for afternoon while a trio of nocturnal tussles are billed. LaSalte will be back to he grid wars for the first time in almost two weeks by tackling the Peyser club at the Stadium with Romney listed for a night tilt in Frostburg against Beall. Parsons vill be host to Shinnston to complete the card. Alco, Sentinels In Action On Saturday both the undefeated Allegany Campers and once-beaten 'ort Hill will be in for heavy duty, if The Campers are set for a night ilt against the Montgomery-Blair Blazers from Silver Spring at the itadium while Fort Hill travels to Winchester, Va., to meet the Handey Judges. Southern of Oakland's "B" team vill invade the : Cove to meet lorthern's • eleven for the other Saturday afternoon encounter. Both Ridgeley and Franklin are knotted for third place in the schoolboy circuit with three wins and one setback for four games, iloorefield is runnerup with three wins and one defeat. The lone Jacket loss was to Ridgeley last week, 22-6, while Franklin was polished off by Romney, 19-6, its 'irst time out. Coach Johnny Paugh's eleven has mocked off Southern, 21-13; Peters- >urg, 13-6, and Homney, 7-0, for VC appearances while also hold- ng a 20-13 decision over Green Bank. Franklin's league triumphs lave been at the expense of W. Va. Deaf, 44-12, and Petersburg, 6-0. The Panthers were walloped by Green Bank, 37-13, while also los- ng to Marlinton, 34-7, in non- lague showings. The two clubs will be meeting or the 28th time in their rivalry 'ith the Jackets way in front? 17 games to six. Four times they ought to a standstill, the last be- ng in. 1544 when they -waged a :oreless draw for the fourth time. It the Jackets, can get by Frankin they will set the stage for what should be the show-down battle icxt Friday against Keyser on the Golden Tornado gridiron. Franklin has one more PVC game, meeting Circleville Friday, October 28, in Circleville. Ridgeley can increase its title itnbitions by taking Petersburg nto camp tomorrow. The Hawks ave only the .Keyser blemish on ts record while winning over Cir- leville, 34-7,-and Moorefield.

The Petersburg Vikings have yet .0 win for four loop attempts al 1 .hough playing a 6-6 tie with Southern. In addition to the league reverses LaSalle walloped coach Jesse Rigglemah's team, 32-13. This contest could develop into an aerial circus with both teams scoring heavily through the air iaries to date. End-quarterback Ken Hartman of the Hawks has flipped five TO heaves while all o Petersburg's four touchdowns have been on passes. Lions Still Looking West Virginia Deaf will be going after its first grid win since the 1951 season when meeting Circleville. The Lions' last triumph was n the season finale that year. They lave dropped a pair of PVC starts this campaign and show only a 6-6 tie against Southern last year lor 26 games. Against PVC (cams, the- Lions have dropped contests, to Southern 40-13, and Franklin. The third de feat, was last Saturday by 13-12 to Virginia School for the Deaf o Stauhton.

Wyant'accounted for 112 yards as West Virginia mauled VMI Saturday, while Pajaczkowski was checked with only 41 when The Citadel surprised the Spiders. Topping the Southern Conference in ;otal ; offehse is old stuff for Wyant, who led the league last season after ranking second in 'S3. 'Pajy' Still Rushing Leader Although Pajaczkowski lost his total offense leadership, the swift Richmond fullback still has more than a 100-yard edge over West Virginia's Jack Rabbits in rushing. .Three other players — Richmond's George Riggs and Louis Wacker and VMI's Dale Vaughn- are within eight yards of Rabbits.

(ff)—Centre College, which dropped from football's fabulous heights to obscurity, is on an unbeaten—but almost unnoticed—march again, powered by a ground game averaging 364 yards a contest. Not since the 1920s, when A1I- imericas-Bd McMillin, Red Robrts and Red Weaver played with le famed "Prayin' Colonels," has lentre now strictly simon pure in ports, been so "hepped" on its earn. Backs Average 7.5 Yards Its" starting backfield has aver- ged 7.5 yards a carry in victories ver Maryville, Vashington and Otterbein and Lee, game hich drew over a third of the Centre student body to Virginia. Gene Scott, a speedy halfback, as averaged 10.2 yards in 35 caries and scored. 24 points. Noting that Centre's 364-yard verage on the ground topped the eader among major college's exas Christian . with 334.3—the olonels decided. today to put in claim among small, colleges. The only drawback' was ;.'that ven statistics had been de-empha- zed—Centre no longer sends its giires to national compiling bii- eaus. This is a far cry from the 1918-22 ra when a powerhouse from the ny Kentucky school rocked the lotball world. , Enter 'Bo'. McMillin An influenza epidemic was all hat limited the 1918 schedule to our victories. The next year, With IcMillin and Weaver first team 11-Americas and Roberts on the lird team, Centre scored . nine .raight victories and 485 points. In 1920, Centre national owers Harvard and Georgia Tech ut became the first school ever score more than 500 points in season with two losses.. McMil- n, later on outstanding college nd pro coach, completed 119 o! 70 passes and Weaver ran his tring of successful extra points to 9. Centre snapped mighty Harard's 25-game winning streak in 921, scoring an astounding 6-0 up et on McMilliri's 32-yard run and the Colonels gained richly de erved national acclaim. Glory Soon Fades The 1921 team won 10 and losl inly one game. The glory lingere( a while—the next three Centre cams turning in records of 8-2 7-1-1 and 5-1-1—but soon faded. R. I,. (Chief) Myers, a Centre jraduate, had fashioned the grea Centre team, which also included tfatty Bell, later a top coach 'Uncle Charlie" Moran, later a major league baseball umpire, led t to its highest peak. As commercialism grew, thi ;mall. school—uV enrollment now s less than 500—dropped from jridiron prominence. It how plays only schools with strictly controlled football programs. But enthusiasm has been ligh this year as Maryville was conquered, 17-0; Otlerbein, 28-13; and Washington and Lee, 24-7. It is expected to hit its peak Saturday when Centre entertains Southwestern of Memphis for lomecoming—sporting a 3^0 record, its 364-yard ground-offensive mark and a 404-yard-total offense average. , . . • »..,.
