"I don't know just yet what I will do." the uig chief stated. "I'll have to work out something between now and Friday." And the bad psrt about the situation is the fact that Hoover isn't the only member of the Tribe that is nursing; an injury.

Unbeaten Texas hns one of the fastest football learns ever assembled 13 Teams, Including Slippery Rock, Fall From Honor List BY CARL l.UNDQUIST (United 1'rcss Sports Writer} NEW YORK. Oct. 28. (UP> — Down in Dallas. Tex., and up In Valley City, N. D,, Saturdny there win lie football gumes between unbeaten and untied teams und it is on account of just such things that there were only 31 perfect record squads left today in the ranks of the nation's colleges. In that "meeting 1 of the unuealen" in Dallas, litunie Texas takes on Southern Methodist in what many folks consider the gume of the day. But just try and convince the pheasant-hunting country of North Dakota that R should take precedence over the clash between the lusty dusties of Ellendal, N. D,, Normal and the Valley City Teachers, likewise both unbeaten and untied. There were 13 casualties on the "perfect record" roll call today as compared with the 44 teams on hand this time last week. And along with big lime Mich'igan, Notre Dame, Texas, Pennsylvania. Pcnn State, Southern Methodist, Georgia Tech, and Utah the list of survivors today included such "little giants" as Missouri Valley of Marshall. Mo.. Upper Iowa, and Southern Oregon CoUejre of Education, all protecting victory strings of two or more season duration. The Midwest still ted the way nmong the unbeaten and untied with 13 teams us compared with n last week. There weVc still seven left in the- East as compared with r.? n week ago, while In the South four teams remained, one less than last week. In the Southwest there were still four survivors with two dropping out. on the Pacific coast there were two lefl as compared with three a week ago and In the Rockies, the Utah Utes stoud alone as they have for tivo. weeks as the sole "honor role" team In their area. There were plenty of proud "little giants" left in the ranks, even though good old Slippery Rock. Pa., Teachers, fell by the wayside via a 0 lo 0 lie. There were the Blue Raiders from Middle Tennssce state | of Murfrcesboro, who may not be . quite as formidable as the Pightin' Irish of Notre Dumc. but who have ; an Irish coach named Charley Mnr- college team in the same class with ' Muhlcnberg.
