John Hoover, another end, is Ihe lOlh member of the graduating Chicks but he will walch the game from the bench due to a knee Injury received In the Sublaco game last month. -It has long been a custom for a coach to play the senior members of his squad the greater portion of the final game of the.season but if season records mean, anything Coach Nig Bynum may have to forget that custom if he expects to win tonight's tussle.

Despile the beating they took at the hands of the Lllllc Rock Tigers last week, members of the tribe appeared to be In fair condition with no serious injuries being reported. Billy Bob Elliott,; who missed practice Monday due to a severe cold, reported to practice yesterday, and made the trip with the other members. Baring any eleventh hour accidents,.Coach Bynum will .probably, field his regular starling lineup in tonight's contest but may use his reserves frequently. However there is still some ques- fe^s as to whether or not Elliott wl ntTto start but in the event that, he doesn't Roy Smith or Don Beshearse will probably get the starting call at left end with Dennie Gentry hold- Ing down the other flank. Lloyd Koontz and Jim Berry will be ready at the tackles, with L. \V. Fltzhugl: and Billy Bracey starting at: guard? and R. B. Hodge at the pivot point In the backficld, the tribal'chief- tan will probably call on Donald Huey at quarterback, McFarland and Trayior at halfbacks, ana R. : p. Allen at/fullback.

The only hitch in the plans is that some of the teams have been invited on an "If" basis, meaning thai they can come "if" they win their final regularly scheduled contests either tomorrow or on Saturday. And If all come through unscathed, the slate should look Ilk. this: -- . . . • ' • Rose Bowl (both .teams already selected)—Southern California vs. Michigan. ' Sugar Bowl—Alabama (already selected), vs Texas. Cotton .Bowl—Southern Methodist {already selected) vs. Pcnn State. Orange Bowl—Georgia Tech vs. Kansas. Texas is known lo be the number ! one choice of the Sugar Bowl folks.! who would like nothing belter than to line up a New Year's duel between I those ace passing artists.
