Wildcats Hold 9th Ranked Tigers To Lone Touchdown By LEROY SIMMS AUBURN, Ala. w Unbeaten Auburn was pushed to the limit Saturday to take a 6-0 victory over Kentucky in a rugged Southeastern Conference football game marred by frequent penalties. Billy Atkins, fullback for the 9th ranked Tigers, slammed across from the 6 in the third period for the only score. It came early in the quarter to end a 36-yard drive, started when Atkins pounced on a Wildcat fumble after he had knocked the ball loose from quarterback Lowell Hughes on a pitch-out play.

Bill Griffith, a 1953 Western graduate, is Tennessee State's reg' ular fullback. Two other Western graduates, Melvin Smith and Charles Wim- satt, had scholarships to Tennessee State, but they turned them down. . If we have missed any local boys on college athletic scholarships, we would like to hear about "them. Among the losers We'll take 'our bows tomorrow in our roundup of Western Kentucky Conference football games, but today we must chalk up a miss in the World Series. We picked the Yanks ;in six games and said most of the games would be decided by one or two runs. At least, we were right on the latter, as three games were yon by a two-run margin and Jwo were determined by one run. Since we took the Yankees, we had to pull for them, which marked the first time we've ever favored the New York club. So now the Yanks have let us down every time, whether we were for them or against them. . We will accept our defeat with grace, but in our predictions we said our choice was assuming that THURSDAY Junior High Football Eastern at Foust Thruston at Southern Catholic at Whitesville FRIDAY Boxing Rory Calhoun vs. Rocky Castel- Iani, middleweights, Madison Square Garden, N.

It came after Tommy Lorino, 165-pound Auburn halfback, was stopped on the 21 by Lou Michaels, Kentucky's All-America tackle candidate. Lorino made 6 on the run, but was out of the game for several minutes. Otherwise, it was mostly a case of two rugged lines stopping offensive threats. Auburn drove to the Kentucky 4 after the touchdown but a. fourth down p'unge failed to get the needed yard. Michaels, great on defense all day, was booed by the Aubnrn partisans when he left the game momentarily in the final period. But they cheered him when he came back. , Great play by Auburn ends Red Phillips and Jerry Wilson contained the Wildcat attack. In addition to the one which died on the 4, Auburn had other scoring opportunities in the first period, when a drive ended on the 24, and again when a fumble stopped the Tigers on the Kentucky 21 in the last period. Kentucky came closest on the last minute of the first period and the first minute of the second when an Auburn fumble was covered by Dick Blocker on the Tiger 21. After a play netted a yard. Auburn was penalized 5,' but Phillips and guard Zeke Smith threw Bobby Cravens for a loss of 4 and two passes were batted down.

Oldham converted and Navy led 7-6. With Oldham running foe big gains and Navy passes starting to connect, the midshipment went 79 yards on eight plays for another touchdown in the final period.
