BALTIMORE Iffl — Navy is not .) bo counted out of playing in a post-season .football bowl despite general opinion* to the contrary, The Baltimore News-Post reported :oday. The newspaper in a story by Frank Cashen, staffer regularly assigned to Navy's football team lointed out there has been nothing said .officially yet that the midshipmen definitely won't consider an invitation. It also said not to expect any denial or confirmation of its availability at this time. That will have :o wait until'after the Army game Nov. 26. The Navy undoubtedly would not consider a bowl if it loses to Army, the newspaper said. This was the case last year when a Sugar Bowl invitation which hac Deen in hand for some time was accepted the second after Navy seat Army 27-20. Navy had lost earlier to Notre Dame and Pitt. Opinion has been abroad that Mavy would not be a bowl candidate this year after a pre-season statement by Capt. Elliott Lough- Lin, director of athletics. He told a news conference that it was his opinion Navy wouldn'i accept two straight bowl bids. He added that would be his recommendation to other authorities at the 'Naval Academy. Since then he has emphasized several times that it was only his personal guess. The last word rould have to come from the Sec retary of Navy. . . The feeling is that pressure wil be put on both the Secretary and those who run the academy to take a bowl hid if the team record is meritorious and includes an Army victory. The record is well along in tha direction with five straight victor ies and no defeats. Two of thi toughest hurdles are next in or der, Notre Dame and Duke. Afte that, it's only weak Columbia be fore Army. Even if Navy should lose one o the three before the Army game it still would be counted as bow timber.
