By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There are enough questions about Saturday's games involving Southwest Conference football learns to rim crossword puzzles at least a week in your f a m i l y newspaper. Will the Texas Aggies come out of Iheir conservative offensive s h e l l to challenge the Texas Tech secondary instead of waiting too late like they did in an upset loss to Kansas last week? Can AM's secondary perhaps the most deadly pass- and-run combination in the conference--quarterback Tommy Duniven to Lawrence Williams? Can fast-improving Baylor and its high-octane offense move against the Arkansas Razorback defense which has .allowed one touchdown all year? Can Texas keep from being humiliated by 21-point favorite Oklahoma? Why did Texas' Coach Darrell Royal go behind closed doors to prepare for the Oklahoma showdown? CONOVER TRICKS? Will trick and treat Coach Al Conover try to paint Ihc Notre Dame Dome with Rice Blue? The Tech-AM SWC. clash be fore a sellout crowd and a na- ional television audience at College Station has drawn some of the spotlight usually shared by the Oklahoma-Texas weekend in Dallas. The unbeaten ninth-ranked Red Faidcrs with only a tie to *Jcw Mexico to mar their record must travel to the home !ield of what has to be the most irate club in collegiate football. The Texas Aggies weie fifth- ranked and soaring last Satur- day before Kansas stopped them cold 28-10.

KtNIUCKV Washington Worried About Playing Enough To Letter DALLAS (AP) -- To give you an idea of how potent Oklahoma is offensively, ace halfback Joe Washington is beginning to jokingly wonder if he's going lo see enough ptaying time to lelter. Perhaps a fired-up Texas team will take care of the problem for Washington, who has only carried the ball 34 times in lopsided victories over Baylor, Utah 'State and Wake Forest. "1 told one of the coaches the other day that the way things are going I won't even earn a letter this year," Washington said. Washington, a junior from Port Arthur, Tex., is the catalyst of a high-powered Wishbone attack that leads the nation in overall offense at an average of 584.3 yards per game, and rushing yardage at 488.3 yards per game. The second-ranked Sooners also are averaging 54.3 points per game and place second In total defense, allowing a mere 165 steps per contest, AWESOME TASK Texas faces the awesome task of derailing this machine Saturday in the annual Red River rival grudge match before a sellout 75,000 fans in the Cotton Bowl. 'They've really got an out- Standing football team," says Texas Coach Darrell Royal, who has a 12-5 coaching record over the Sooners. "I think they are possibly as good personnel wise as any of their teams since I've been here," Oklahoma is n 21-poinl favo- tite over the Longhorns, who are 3-1 and ranked 17th. Tickets are at a premium for ttw gams because Oklahoma Is on probation and there will be no television. A Texas official said 150,000 ickets could have been sold for he 69th meeting of Ihc schools. The series began in 1900 and Texas leads 42-24-2. Oklahoma las won the last three games. Royal has switched speedster Raymond Clayborn from safety .o offensive halfback to restock- that depleted position. Clayborn presumably will backup freshman Garyln Wyatt. Other starters in the Texas backfield include freshman fullback Earl lampbcll. sophomore halfback Jimmy Walker, and probably Vlarty^Akins at quarterback. Defensive halfback Terry Me- ancon was switched to safety and freshman Alfred Jackson was put in Melancon's spot. Indians Minus Nine Players JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) -The Arkansas Stale University Indians will take on Illinois State at Normal, III., Saturday minus nine injured players. ASU Coach Bill Davidson said the injuries created problems, but the Indians would have to make the best of the situ a lion. The Indians concluded their practice sessions for the Illinois State game Thursday with a few minutes of work on their kicking game. "It was a day for refining what we have learned this week about ISU," Davidson said. "I think we have accomplished what we wanted to under the circumstances. The Indians are 1-1 (or the season.'
