Kickoff time has been moved up to 7:30 o'clock for this struggle, postponed from its original date of October 18 when influenza struck down most of the Loganberry grid squad. Although neither the Berries nor iBronchos are making much headway on the gridiron this season, •the game affords the winner the chance to claim undisputed possession of sixth place in the final conference standings. Logansport has licked only Marion in five NCC appearances. Lafayette pounded Frankfort for its Tigers Gun For Sooner Scalp At 47 Missouri Poses Problem for Tough Oklahoma KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UP) — For once -in a long period, some experts are whispering this weekend could mean the snipping of football's longest winning string. The occasion will be Oklahoma's clash Saturday against Missouri at Columbia with the Sooners seeking their 47th consecutive victory, their 64th straight win in Big Eight competition and the 101st for Coach Bud Wilkinson.

And Wecb Ewbank of the Colts is also in tests. schools figure that victory hi this finals would salve some ot the previous hurts, which have accumulated during the course of five-game losing streaks. Jeff, in fact, appears in worse condition than Logan considering recent football success, sinee the Bronchos have defeated only Frankfort in their last 111 ball games. Lafayette Coach Norm Willey, endeavoring to "fire up" his boys for an all-out effort, reminds the Bronchos that he's like to beat Logan Coach Harvey Robert for a change. Roberts directed elevens registered decisive three-touchdown conquests over Jefferson the last bwo seasons. Seniors Finish The program marks the comple- trouble, tion of prep football careers for 12 j Logansport seniors. They include: End Neil Sanders; Tackle Al Thomas and Jim Moss; Guards; Dave Baker and Everett Cook; Centers; Teriy Hargrove and Dick Sundy; Quarterbacks Dave Nichols and Steve Wheatley; Halfback Don Bessignano; and Fullbacks John Gibson and Pat O'Connor. Roberts waii encouraged by the Berries' striking power in Monday's practice. "If we can get our offense moving and hold that ball a little longer, our defense surely •will get a big boost, too, he reasoned. "We've played well against Lafayette in recent years and perhaps the kids still have 48 minutes of hard football left in their systems," Robert declared. "It will take such an effort since Je'ff can fiel'd a formidable array of runners. Roberts plans to go with _the same lineup that opened against Rensselaer last week and will continue to alternate his two quarterbacks — Senior Dave Nichols and Junior Jack Cain. Injuries Costly Lafayette, beset with costly injuries all season long, has shuffled its lineup several times hoping to locate a clicking unit.

They've only had 65 points scored against them in six games, 31 less than the Giants who are in second place defensively. Its going to be mighty hard to stop either the 49'ers or the Browns. They're selecting the competing teams for the big bowl games in the press. Right now Oklahoma, the Texas Aggies and Orogor: are the choices to represent their conferences in the Orange, Cotton and Rose bowls. OSU Big Ten Chance The Big Ten's representative in the Rose can be either Ohio State or Michigan State. Ohio State, unbeaten in conference play, has the best chance but still has to get by Purdue, Iowa and Michigan. Con- ferense wise the Spartans face only Minnesota, and Duffy Daugherty's boys have only been beaten once. A tie and Georgia Tech are three days after Mather and five assistants quit, effective at the season's end. In other games this weekend Nebraska 'will be at Iowa State, Colorado at Colorado State, and Wyoming at Oklahoma State. Tribe Seeks Field Boss INDIANAPOLIS CUP) — Indications were today that the choice for manager of the Indianapolis Indians of the American Association has been narrowed to half a dozen candidates, among them former Cleveland manager Kerby Farrell.

He said the sixth has not been contacted and his name, therefore .would not be disclosed.
