But In spite of the Paps' long •winning streak will face probably Its toughest test so far this.season, Chlck-Whltehaven tilt will hold the spotlight this week. The Chicks are expecting another tough evening when they go against the Tigers. Scouting reports say that White-! h»ven boasts one of Its strongest team* in recent years which means that the 1952 Tiger edition is equal to or better than last year's team which the Chicks barely nosed out. Mosler May Be Ready The Tigers, too, had the week off last week due to an open date mnd should be well rested for their InvMlon of Blythevllle. The Chicks spent last week in polishing up Its offense and trying to get a lew bruises healed. Both of the first string halfbacks. Tommy Moslem and co-captain Donald Gentry missed most of the action last week because of injuries but Mosley' should be ready to go in the Wnltehaven game. However, Gentry, who suffered a Blight brain concussion In the Jackson game, was absent from practice all last week and the report Is that he will not return to the equad this year. : •" • Mosley, who sat out the Jackson game because ot a leg Injury, ran some In last .week's practices but Is etill not'ab'U to go at full speed.

Johriny was not able to reporl earlieV b«caUs« of an after school job, It was reported, but Ms reporting .now, In spite of the fact he Is more than a .month late, will help «c,uallLe the'loss of Gentry.

After Coach Rny George of Texas A.' & M. saw his Ir.ds. whipped by Michigan State *8-6 wholeheartedly into the business ol Saturday in a nationally-televised ' ' ' ~ giiine, he put it this way: "It's not their first team that beats you. It's their second and third." Biggie, who admits lie likes to piny a lot of fellows, has coached his team to 18 straight victories— longest current major college streak—and to a No. 2 ranking in the weekly Associated Press poll. Wisconsin, No. 1 last week, was upset Saturday by Ohio Slate. Last year biggie used two backfields: (1) the workhorse unit that played the other team even for two periods and wore it down, and (2) the pony backfield that came in at that point and ran up a comfortable lead, v This year he uses almost all 12 backs interchangeably in tne three units. There's no real first string. Only quarterback Tom Ycwcic can be called a full-time regular. In this year's first two games Munn used only eight of his backs They managed 27-13 and n-H victories over Michigan and Oregon State. Then came the unveiling of the other four backs in the fourth quarter last Saturday and their brilliance should aid Munn If he has any psychological problems with his top eight backs. CHICAGO (/PI — With a recent of the NCAA, has not yet comment- Notre Dame blast at collegiate television policies 'still resounding, two committees of the ; NCAA met today to work over TV and other plans for the future. A four-day general policy, going- over ,waa in prospect. Besides the] television problem, the committees | planned to take up such things as post-season competition and alleg-' ed nondbeervance of NCAA rules by at least three of 1U members. Names of the schools involved in the reported Infractions have not been made public. The committees on hand are the NCAA Executive Committee and the NCAA Council. The overall purpose of the meetings Is to shape various reports for final action by the NCAA Convention in January. Notre Dame spokesmen say they have learned a ''share the wealth" TV program is being prepared by NCAA bodies. They say the plan woulA split money received In the association's controlled video program among all members. Edward Moose Krause, Irish athletic director, condemned over the week end any such move as "im moral. iUegal, un-American and socialistic." He asked why, "on the same basis, shouldn't endowments and state legislative funds for colleges be split among all the schools?" "Some schools have both material wealth and prestige," Krause maintained. "We at Notre Dami have only prestige and that belongs as much to us as does mate rial wealth to other schools . . ." Walter Byers, executive directo: ed on the Notre Dame stand. Asa Bushnell, director of the organization's television program, said no "share the wealth" plan has been presented by the TV Committee. However, he eaid a "partial distribution of, excess TV receipts" has been mentioned as a future possibility.

( NEW YORK (AP) — With the un-ceremonious demise f Princeton, the mighty Spartans from Michigan State oday owned the longest vinni^K streak in college football — 18 games — and they show no signs of letting up there. which leaves •• things right back Maryland and Georgia Tech each lave gone through 18 games wltlt- iut a defeat, but they've been tied. Michigan State still has six lames to play so it's rather early to be predicting another undefeated eason for them, but if they perform n the manner they did Saturday n hanging a 48-6 pasting on Texas A and M, their future opponents are'not going to look to the Spartan games with any enthusiasm. State still has to meet, in order, !yracuse. Penn State. Purdue, Indiana, Notre Dame and Marquette. Until it took a 22-19 beating from Pitt, ^'otre Dame probably would nave been regarded as a threat to Biggie Munn's-lads, who next year start operations in the Big Ten. But the Irish looked bad-against the ang Georgia ' Tech Panthers. Maryland where they were in the beginning of the season, with defending champion Texas Christian still the choice by default. '' • : The Horned Progs go against Texas A and M this week. -The conference* goes into full-scale. operations . Saturday, so the picture should be cleared somewhat In a week or two. . . In the Rocky Mountain Conference, the eventual champion prob- _ ably will be decided this week when Idaho State and Colorado State, the two top powers, tangle at Pocatello. Houston is the surprise leader in the Missouri Valley, after clobbering the defending champion University of Tulsa, 33-7. Georgia Tech might get « tussle from'Alabama and ?fenws:e9 for the Southeastern loon title, _ continue to roll along, and neither I wn |ie Duke heads the Si";thern should be pressed to any great ex- conference, although Virginia re- tent this week against, respectively. Navy and Auburn. The Terps poli&hed off CBeorgltt, y?-Q, and Tech. topped Tulane, 14-0, Saturday. California, which has piled up a staggering 12 points in four games, seems assured of winning' the Pacific Coast Conference title, although it still must, get: past Southern California and UCLA. Wisconsin, the class of the Big Ten, and No. 1 team in the country in last week's AP poll, was tlie victim of the biggest upset of the season Saturday. Ohio State soundly passed the Badgers, 23-14. , mains unbeaten too. The. pair tangle in two wee , ks. hands of Oklahoma to be-"Just onej That made, it a brand new race of those things," adding:. "Fumbles hurt Texas "badly at the start and they never recovered. After losing' to Notre Dame and Okla- home on successive Saturdays Tex-' as will be doubly tough on us. We can win if we keep up the life we've shorn . in the past two games and can cut down on our mistakes. But It'll take our very best efforts." Asked for comment on Baylor Coach George Sauer's charges that Arkansas played "illegally" Douglas "T djn't know what George was talking about." Sauer last night amplified Ms previous statement, saying he fliought an Arkansas .player had asked another to fake ah Ih3»ry In order to get a penalty. The Baylor mentor said the game was rough but that he had not Intended to leave the impression that, there had been any dirty football. ' „ ..

Carpenter said a Bear end "uppercut, me on every play." play wasn't bad as tne preceding Saturday only because It .didn't piny as many games. : Texas Christian enjoyed itself with a 47-0 respite over Trinity University. in the Big Ten, although there still Is nothing to prevent Wisconsin from winning it. On paper, the Badgers still can field the most potent squad in the loop. However, as of today, Purdue, which trounced Iowa, 41-14, in its last outing, stands at the head of the class with a 2-0 league record. Princeton's 13-7 defeat at the hands of Penn, strangely, was not a surprise. The.. Wu_akers were known to be powerful while Princeton, without the services of the graduated Dick Kazmaler, was an unknown quantity. Penn now should have no trouble sweeping to the league crown, held the last two years by the Tigers. The Kansas -Oklahoma-Nebraska battle for the big Seven probably ended Saturday when Nebraska's hard luck kid. Bobby Reynolds, was hurt during the Cornhuskers' 27-14 triumph over Kansas State. -This should narrow the race down to Oklahoma and Kansas, who meet head on this week. Both wanned up to their tasks Saturday, the Eooners manhandling Texas, 49-20, and Kansas annihilating Iowa State, 43-0. In the traditionally mixed up Southwest Conference, things are traditionally mixed up. There isn't an undefeated team in the loop.
