By TONI GALLI NEW YORK 1 — (INS) - Noire Dame, the mdst imposing barrier between Navy and an undefeated season, dusts off the welcome mat for the'flashy Sailors tomorrow in the week's top football attraction. Only four times in 28 meetings since the colorful scries started in 1927 has Navy vanquished the Irish,- Hie last triumph recorded 11 years ago when the . wartime power-laden Middies won, 32 to 13. That has helped to establish the odds, by 5',i points,. in Notre Dame's favor but the.Naval Academy is sending its strongest force since the Third Fleet and could upset the dopcsters. "Navy has a good team, with good balance, good throwing, good running'and'a lot of depth," ND coach' Terry Brennan observed yesterday. "Thai's a tougb combination to .beat." . - Navy Tops On Defense Indeed, the country's fifth-ranking power has impressed by bowling over William i- Mary, South Carolina, Pittsburgh, Penn State and Pcnn, all but Penn State via the shutout, route. The.. .Middies boast the nation's No, 1 defense, with a yield of only 2.8 points per game. They -..'lave in. quarterback George f Welsh a passing wizard who has completed 40 of 61 passes for. 635 yardsj and five touchdowns and an.- ••' All-American end. Ron Beagle, who has snared 13 aerials for 228 yards and two TDs. But the . seventh-ranked Irish have played a little tougher opposition, with shutout victories over Southern Methodist, Indiana and Miami and last week's 22-10-7 win over Purdue. Their only loss;was (o Michigan State. For what it may mean, the Irish will outweigh .an opponent for the first time, 201 lo 197 pounds in the line and 190 to 172 in the starting backfield. Welsh, who cracks his split T whip with a deadly throwing arm. weighs only 168 to 205 for Notre Dame's versatile' quarterback, Paul Hornung. Hornung Good Carrier Welsh isn't even listed as a ball carrier in Navy statistics while Harming is 'the third best Irish rusher with 51 carries for 247 yards.. Hornung, however, has completed only 20 of 48 passes for 250 yards and four TDs," f. ..' A big question will be how well Hornung's thigh injury, suffered last week, has responded to treatment. Whether H will be a scoring duel or a battle of strong defenses will depend on the weather, said Brennan. And whilo conditions may not he as miserable as last yearns in Baltimore, when the Irish triumphed by a 6-to-O score, the unofficial outlook calls for rain tonight and perhaps, right up to game time, followed by windy, cool weather. A sellout crowd of 57,000 will sit at ringside and thousands more will watch the show on closed- circuit theater television in nine cities plus the Naval Academy. Besides the Navy-ND affair, there are seven other top in'.er sectional clashes. Southern California, ranked eighth in the nation, goes after its second Big Ten scalp at Minnesota. Ninth-ranked West Virginia goes lo Marquctte. Duke, toppled from the unbeaten by Pitt last week, swings over to the Southeastern Conference for a shot at Georgia Tech. Undefeated Boston College plays at Xavicr. Pill entertains Miami. Rice is at Kentucky and Richmond at Villanova.

For International News Sen-ice) The big one this week, and the oughest to pick,-is the Navy-of play, 'otre Dame game at Soulh Bend, rid. The once-beaten Irish have tak- n .care of the Midshipmen for the ast ten years and are a six-point avorite to torpedo the undefeated ugar Bowlchampions again. Irish To Lose. 21-15 I watched Notre Dame play almost perfect football while beating 'urdue last week. The Irish are •ell-balanced and well-quarter- ackcd by Paul Hornung but Navy stronger in reserve strength nd possesses one of the finest uarterbacks in the country in "/J 3eorge Welsh.

"When : they banned the two- ilatoon T said we'd reach a point vhere defense would overshadow iffense," said Dodd. "A boy plays more now on his defensive ability han his oflensive ability." Said 'Collier: "My thought was hat the change would make for ower scores. Defense is more na- ural to teach than offense and coaches .may be making decisions and substitutions in terms of vhelher a boy can play defense." Michigan State's Duffy Daugherty indicated he favors a return o the two-way system: "(Now) have lo sacrifice offensive ability lo get the defensive job done — a further liberalization of he substitution rule is needed to once again put the emphasis on offense." Red Sanders of UCLA saw the change "due probably to the fac hat the star of the T formation is declining."

Lippy Breitbardt, Jackson's manager, is rolling happily along contending a match with champion Rocky Marciano is virtually in the Bag. He says James D. Norris, presi dent of the International Boxing Club, promised him a champion ship match,, providing Jackson 'wins from Srade and either Nino /aides and.Bob Baker." However a loss could push him entirely oul if the heavyweight picture. The crowd-pleasing Hurricane crowding into the "1 Want Marciano" group on the merits of two straight decisions over ex-heavyweight king Ezzard Charles, has split two close decisions with the 180-pound Slade. He dropped the irst bout in April of last year, nut reversed the order of finish a return bout last June. Slade will be giving away weight, leight and reach to the perpetual motion man, but feels "I have the style" to beat him.
