The most Important games of the season are coming up and the next two weeks probably will tell the story of who is going to play in the big post-season tournaments. Both of the nation's major unbeaten teams—Duquesne (14-0) anc St. Bonaventure (13-9)—go into action tonight in warmups before they clash next Monday at Pittsburgh So a week hence, the unbeaten list is bound to be at exactly one. Duquesne tackles LaSalle, no setup, while St. Bonaventure entertains John Carroll. In addition, the Sonnies have dates with Murray (Ky) State Teachers Thursday and Cincinnati Saturday. Illini, Iowa Next There's another big one on tap for Saturday night and it will go far toward determining the eventual winners of the Big Ten race. League-leading Illinois travels to Iowa for a contest with the second- place Hawkeyes. Both have lost just one game all season, but Iowa's was in the league. The Illini have won all six of their loop outings. Iowa, too, has won six with the one defeat marring its record. Otherwise, around the country class has been holding up in practically all sectors. For example, who is going to beat out North Carolina State or Kentucky for the Southern and Southeastern Conference title, respectively? Answer: Probably no one. Cornell Halts Penn North Carolina State is riding along serenely with an unblemished mark of 8-0. West Virginia is trying to put up, a fight and currently sports a 7-1 mark. The Wolfpack is fr: a good spot because they don't meet. West Virginia can't do much except sit around and hope State will get a licking somewhere along -the line. As for Kentucky, the No. 1 team in the weekly Associated Press poll, the Wildcats, with a mark of 9-0, turned around last week and watched their only challenger, Florida, drop virtually out of sight as a result of its second defeat of the league campaign. • In the Ivy League.

Tatum said in his opinion, there is no better defensive end in college football than Aiderton. The Maryland mentor also had words of praise for other area stars. He said big things are expected of Charley Lattimer as linebacker next season, asserted that Don Decker, in addition to'kicking extra points and field goals, is going to play guard at either offense or defense, and declared that Freshman Lynn Beightol will come into the swing of things as a quarterback during the 1952 season.

Robinson praised the work of the Dapper Dan club and the interest shown locally in the youth of the community, adding that "if athletics can turn out boys of the caliber of the Modzeweleski brothers and your own fine contributions from Cumberland then more scholarships should be awarded and the sports program built up instead of being de-emphasized."
