East, on top of the rankings all season, polished off its brilliant season by routing city-rival West 40-7 last weekend. The Trojans ripped through enemy lines for a total of 2,876 yards on the ground this season, and added another 1,090 through the air. Their prime assault weapon was fullback Tom Smith, a 210-pounder with tremendous running ability. He scored 19 touchdowns and rushed for 1,303 yards in 150 carries — an average of 1.7 per try. Two of East's victories (25-0 over Burlington and 25-6 over Cedar Rapids Regis) were against teams that won all of the rest of their games. The only tight game was a 6-0 conquest of Dubuque Wahlert.

Slim Odds For Tiger Over Rouse LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP)-Dick Tiger is the light heavyweight boxing champion of the world and he defends the title here Friday night against Montana's No. 1-rated 175-pounder, Roger Rouse, who admits he was once the best street brawler in Anaconda. The 38-year-old Tiger— christened Richard Hietu in faraway Nigeria — has his immediate thoughts pinned on the nationally televised fight. But his deepest concern hinges on the turmoil in Africa and the safety of his family in the new secession state of Biafra in the eastern part of Nigeria. Tiger is staying and training at a downtown hotel. The most important furnishing in his room is a shortwave radio. It is tuned in on the Voice of America. Before and after drills Tiger has the set on, trying to hear anything possible of the strife in his native country. "I have a wife and six chil dren—it should be seven by now—and I haven't been able to hear a word about them since I left for this country," Tiger said Tuesday, venturing into a personal and political subject he doesn't like to dwell upon because of the possible repercussions to his family. Keep « WelY> Keep ster Brau Put it e taste test We re expect'^ By The Associated Press Iowa State's Tom Busch, one of the best all-around backs in 3ig Eight history and No. 3 on he pass receiving lists, will inish his career Saturday igainst Oklahoma State at Ames. This 6-foot, 190-pounder flyer hasn't had as much publicity as some since the Cyclones haven't come close to a championship, but he rates at the top. Consider these credentials: 1.1,271 yards in pass reviving, the first two years in the shadow of talented split end ~!ppie Barney, Busch is only 140 yards short of the all-time lead- ir, Jim Doran of Iowa State, and just 80 behind Barney. He has averaged 15.9 yards a catch. 2. A dangerous runner who has done 100 yards in 9.8 seconds, Busch is just 51 yards short of 1,000 in kickoff return yardage. He has averaged 25.6 yards per return. 3. He also owns a career average of 5.3 yards a rushing play. all categories he has gained 2,441 yards and averaged 15.7 a play. ' 4. Busch set a school record last year by kicking 6 of 10 field goal attempts. He also made 16 of 17 conversion kicks. He was relieved of these duties this fall because of sophomore specialist Vern Skripsky. He still does some of the punting and is fourth in the league at 39.3. Busch is a frank and refreshing young man who doesn't dodge tough questions. He's full of confidence and bold enough Busch Rates As Top Big 8 Back to wear No. 13 jersey. Jinxes don't concern him—he wore No. 13 in high school, too. His top thrill in college wasn't one of his several touchdown bombs. It was Tom Busch Day staged by Garner residents at the home opener. Even if Busch breaks Doran's league record, it won't last long. Dave Jones, Kansas State junior, already has 1,180 pass receiving yards. Two Big Eight passers already have passed for more than 1,000 yards this season and three more could make it by season's end. This compares with only nine 1,000-yard season passers in league history. Bob Douglass of Kansas has 1,165, Bill Nossek of K-State 1,025, Frank Patrick of Nebraska 998. Iowa State's John Warder needs 144 and Oklahoma's Bob Warmack is averaging over 100. In total offense, Douglass Is far in front and No. 8 nationally with 1,486, needing 264 in two games to break the league record. In rushing, Oklahoma's Ron Shotts leads teammate Steve Owens 569 to 566 with Nebraska's Dick Davis at 555, Missouri's Barry Lischner 542 and K-State's Cornelius Davis 520. Colorado's Charles Greer leads with 310 yards in punt returns and needs 51 more to break the league mark of 927 by Jack Mitchell of Oklahoma. Missouri's Roger Wehrli is the kickoff return leader with 279 and a 34.9 average. K-State's Bob Coble leads with a 42.8 punting average and Owens with 54 points.
