Georgia Tech continued to rule the ro»st In .the Southeastern Conference after. a non-l«ajrue 18-14 win over Navy. But this week Tech plays Alabama, and Harry Gilmer is just the boy who could produce an upset. Mississippi state is 'right even with Tech as far as the SEC race goes, after downing Auburn, 14 to 0. State plays unpredictable LSU this week. In the Southern Conference, Duke remains the top team, since the 28 to 1 loss to Missouri was not a league game. Duke meets South Carolina thus week.

Kansas plays the Oklahoma Aggies and Missouri meets Oklahoma, the one team which has tied Kansas, this week Oklahoma downed Kansas State 27 lo J3. this week. Penn is tho top club in the Ivy League, still undefeated and untied. Penn bounced independent Virginia out of lhat select circle Saturday with a 19 to 7 game, and now faces Army, which is still smarting from Ihe 27 to 7 loss to Notre Dame. Vale, the top threat in the Ivy country, lost to Brown, 20 to-14, and now meets Princeton, 3-7, conqueror of Harvard. Notre Dame plays Northwestern 7 : 6 loser lo Ohio State this week, and elsewhere: East—Bo.ston U. vs. Kings Point.
