Hall and Marr, who are veterans of years of mat mangling, will be making their first appearances here In the last half-itozen years.

Topping the choice items on the menu today Is the meeting of old rivals Southern California and U. C. I,. A., with Southern Cal the seven-point favorite. The Rose Bowl bid from the West Coast Is the aim of South Cal's Trojans in this battle between the Los AiiReles neighbors. Unbeaten and tied only by Rice early in the season, the Trojans are picked despite U. C. L. A.'s stern resolve to keep them away from Pasadena on New Year's Day. The nation's leading undefeated and untied teams—Notre Dame, Michigan, Penn State, and Southern Methodist—are all picked to win by lopsided scores. Leahy Confident Notre Dame meets Tulane In a game that Coach Prank Leahy evidently regards as already won, since he will be scouting Southern Gal. Michigan, with the Big Nine title already safely stowed away, closes Its regular season by facing Ohio State. Southern Methodist, powerhouse of the Southwest Conference, is a 13-polnt choice over Baylor, and Penn State, which fears a wet field, is rated 14 points better than Pitt. In the Big Six.
