Prospects aren't very bright that they can do any better this week than last when only Baylor, which wasn't supposed to beat anybody, came through. It left the Golden Bears the only undefeated team in the league. Dropping four games out of five against foes from other areas, the conference saw its intersectional record for the season fall behind. Teams of this circuit have won six and tost seven. Texas A&M, set down 10-7 by Kentucky for its first loss of the campaign, tries Michigan State, the nation's No.l team, at Lansing, Mich., Saturday. Rice, which was whipped 27-7 by Louisiana State, KOCS to Los Angeles to play a UCLA outfit that slashed Texas Christian two weeks ago. Texas, which succumbed to Notre Dame 14-3, engages an Oklahoma team that has just finished clouting Pittsburgh 49-20. Southern Methodist, which felt the lash of Georgia Tech 20-7. goes to Columbia, Mo., to play touch Missouri. Baylor doesn't have to worry about its intersectional record this week but it has worries Just the same. Ttie Bears, who slammed Washington State 31-7 last week, engage the Arkansas Razorbacks •U Little Rock Saturday night in conference game. Texas Christian, winner of the only conference gnme played thus far — a 13-7 decision over Arkansas — gets downtrodden Trinity University at San Antonio Saturday night. Trinity hasn't been able (o beat anybody yet and they haven't played a team 1 as strong 3 Texas Christian. The Texas-Oklahoma game will be the high point of the schedule. Regardless of how'these two teams have fared in a season, their struggle at the State Fair in Dallas each year always packs the Cotton Bowl. -+ By JOE REICHLER NEW YORK OR—A picture BO- qucncc of yesterday's World Series game appeared today lo show that American League Umpire Art Passarella made a wrong call—and baseball Corrxnissloner Ford Frick admitted it. Passarella called New York Yankee pitcher Johnny Sain out at first base in Ihe tenth inning. The pictures, taken by Associated Press photographer John Lindsay, showed Sniu's foot on the bag and the ball not yet in first baseman Gil Hodges' mitt. "According to the picture, it looks like Passarella called a wrong play," Frick said. "If he did, He's only human. I assure you it's not the first wrong call ever made by an umpire, if it was that. What's all the shouting about? Players make nistakes too. So do officials.' So does the commissioner. A player makes an error, another forgets to cover a base, a pitcher makes a wild pitch, a catcher lets a ball get away from him. Very little is said. 1952. Harvey Morris.

Brooklyn won the game, 6-5, in 11 innings to take a 3-2 lead in the series.
