NEW YORK '- (INS) - Noire Dame's unbeaten, untied 'and un scored upon football team takes a crack tomorrow at the 564.000 question—Can (he Irish beat Michigan State? .. The official odds say they can, by six points, but the upset-minded Spartans, and even the Irish themselves arc not so sure. Terry Brennan, 'coach of -the country's third-ranking team, is expecting trouble at East Lansing .when the two midwestern Goliaths collide before a sellout crowd of 53,000' and a nationwide television audience (NBC, 3 p. m. EDT) "Michigan State is the fastest team Notre Dame meets this season," Brennan said last night. "We . beat them, 20 to 19. last year and the boys said they were the toughest team we played. Now they've got seven of their first team back. They're our first' single-wing team." . _ Rebuilds Defense Brennan.has had to rebuild his entire defense'for this game. After; three straight weeks against .the; split-T. the Irish run into a mul-j tiple offense which includes the: single-wing and numerous varia- : tions of the T. "That' thing that has me worried," Brennan confessed. "Our line isn't used to the single wing plays'and our boys have not re -, r F^ llrr l, f~\viiM C rt \X7lll F\3«o acted as well as we had hoped." 1 0112" VjOUlSC TT 111 F HCC Whether the Irish arc prepared •' ~ or not', they're still slim favorites on, the .basis of jmgressive _victories pvcr Southern Methodist, Indiana and rugged Miami, not to mention their unsullied goal line.

(/P)—Football officiating, especially in last week's Texas-Oklahoma game at Dallas, was raked over the coals by a couple of sports writers today. The officials denied that anything was .wrong. 'Mark Batlcrson, sports editor of the Austin American, said he was shocked by some of the things "which apparently only bored the referees on the field" in the Texas- Oklahoma-Texas game, disclaimed any knowledge of uppercuts and kneeing. "I had no idea that plays like that occurred," he said, "and Oklahoma game, saying movies of I still don't." He added that both coaches "made a point of coming to us after the game. They said it was as well-worked a game as they had eyer seen." Tapping (Continued from Page 16) Norm Van Brocklin of Los Angeles, Brown, is the longest passer. . . . Y, A. Tittle of San Francisco the ".best • off- balance thrower". . . . And-his own Otto Graham "The finesl passer I've ever seen." the contest showed that two Texas players, taken off-the field with brain concussions "owe their injuries to Sooner activities which should heve been policed by the referees on the field." Battcrson said that "very clear in. the movie, for instance, is a stiff uppercut delivered on fullback Larry Graham. As for halfback Mickey Smith, who was released from a Dallas hospital only Wednesday, his head injury was caused by a Sooner who kneed him in the head after he was tackled." At Fort Worth, sports editor Flem Hall of the Star-Telegram commented that "thousands of spectators in the west stands of the Cotton Bowl stood up and booed Saturday when Mickey Smith, 170-pound Texas sophomore halfback, was disabled by a knee blow to the neck while he lay on the ground.

GRADE SCHOOL By The Associated Press With the 1955 football season nearly a month old, four teams in the Southern Conference still are without a victory. And though all four are in action tomorrow, the odds are that three,' at least, still will be winless c'oine Sunday morning. The unfortunate four who've had no luck at all, in order of luckless- ness, are Furman (0-4), VMI (0-4), William and Mary (0-3) and Washington and Lee '0-1). Furman would appear to have the best chance of them all to gain its first triumph in Saturday action. The Hurricane, though, by no means is a sure thing in its contest against' The Citadel's up- and-coming Bulldogs (2-1) at Charleston tomorrow night. VMI meets Virginia at Chariot tesviile and though Virginia also has failed to win a game—the Cavaliers are 0-3—VMI once more will be the underdog. William and Mary, after falling before Navy, Virginia Tech and Duke, completes its circuit of the area'"murders' row" by traveling to West Virginia to meet the 10th- ranked Mountaineers of Coach Art "Pappy" Lewis. West Virginia (3-0) is a prohibitive favorite. Washington and Lee visits Davidson (2-1) with Coach Bill Chip- .ey's amateur Generals- rated a couple of touchdowns' inferior to the Wildcats. H.has been 13 years since Davidson whipped WiL, and •his is the year Coach Bill Dole ihinks the Cats .will break the dismal streak, despite last week's disappointing 16-7 loss to Presbyterian. . Other games involving conference clubs tomorrow find Virginia Tech (3-1 over-all) entertaining Richmond (2-2) and George Wash- ngton (2-1) at non-conference Pennsylvania. The accent will be on youth in the Furman-Citadel tiff tomorrow. Furman Coach Homer Hobbs yes- :erday named six freshmen—quarterback Kay Bryant, halfback Charley Moore, tackle Don Mar- ;ofski, guards Ronnie Brown and Gene Head and center Jim Walton—to start for the Hurricane. At least that many probably will man starting berths for Coach John Street Geph.rt ............... « Touchdowns fcartA by A. Kaplon, Peters (Columbia St.); Donahue, Cross Gephart}.
