For National Prominence

For Direct Classified Ad Service, Phone NO 2-4786

Louisiana State and Mississippi
meet tonight in a contest that can
easily be called THE top game of
the 1959 college football season.
At stake is the mythical na-
tional football ghampionship, the
Southeastern Conference title and
a Sugar Bowl bid. LSU's Tigers
won the coveted title last year
and this fall they are unbeaten
once again and are rated the
country's top collegeiate eleven.
Ole. Miss' Rebels are also unbeat-.
en this season and are ranked as
the nation's number three team.
High Scoring Squads
The Tigers have scored 103
points against. five opponents
while allowing just two field goals
td be scored against them. The
Rebels record is even more im-
pressive. Against- a similar num-
ber of opponents they have rolled
up 189 points with the opposition
scoring just seven points.
There will be individual stars
galore at the 'crucial fzcntest that
will be played before a turnaway
crowd of 67,500 at 'Baton Rouge.
For the Tigers there will be ev-
erybody's All-American last' fall,
Billy Cannon. To accompany Can-
non's ferocious running, the Loui-
siana squad has All-Southeastern
Conference quarterback .Warren
Flowers Leads Mississippi
However, Ole Miss is not lack-
ing stars. They have the nation's
seventh leading. ground gainer in
hard-running fullback Charlie
Flowers and one of the South's
outstanding passers, Jake Gibbs.
These top-rated offensive stars
may have to take a back seat in
tonight's contest for both teams
have "brick wall" defenses,-LSU
is the nation's number two de-
fensive team and Mississippi holds
down the number three slot.
Also in the South eighth-ranked
Auburrn plays Florida while ninth-
rated Georgia Tech meets Duke.

The top game in the East fea-4
tures the Army and Air Force in
the first contest of what should
become a great traditional series.

number one offensive and defen-
sive team, Syracuse meets unpre-
dictable Pittsburgh. The Big Or-

Purdue Falinois in topGame;

Indiana Eyes Wildcat Homecoming

The smoke has cleared from last
week's blasting and five teams still
remain in the running as the Big
Ten enters its sixth week of com-
With Northwestern leading the
pack and Michigan State, Wiscon-
sin, Purdue and Illinois chasing
the Wildcats in the race for the
roses, this week's games could go
a long way toward determining
the eventual champ.
Michigan's Sailing Club will
split up the sexes this weekend, in
order to compete in two separate
This weekend will be somewhat
of a breather since the Wolverines
worked for the domination of last
week's regatta.
The Wolverines, with 95 points,
took command of the two-day
meet by leading Wisconsin, one of
the midwestern sailing powers, by
12 points.
Other competing schools placed
in the following order: Wayne.
State, Michigan State, Northwest-
ern, Notre Dame, and Detroit.
Notre Dame, who is rated as an-
other top sailing team in the mid-
west, was minus one of its skip-
pers and this was probably the
cause, for a poor showing.
Oddly enough, Wisconsin, too,
has a female member on its team,
Ruth Hibbard. Miss Hibbard fol-
lowed right behind Miss Schneid-
er, in "B" division with a 40-point
Both these female skippers have
been providing stiff competition
for their counterpart male oppo-
nents. But today and tomorrow
they will be able to battle their
own sex in the Midwest Women's
Championships at Ohio Wesleyan.
Meanwhile, the male represen-
tatives will gather at Indiana this
weekend. The Wolverines will send
Jim King as their representative
and possibly one other team

Purdue is at Illinois, Michigan
State travels 'to Ohio, Northwest-
ern has its homecoming as they
play host to Indiana, and Wiscon-
sin is here to face the Wolverines.
In two non-conference games Iowa
takes on Kansas State and Minne-
sota's forlorn Gophers are hosts
to Vanderbilt.
Top Big Ten'
The top game as far as the.
conference is concerned probably
will be the game at Champaign.
Purdue's hoti and cold Boiler-
makers with bruising Bob Jarus
running at fullback again appear
to have the mateial to beat Illi-
nois, but the Illini seem to have a
knack for winning at home.
The Illini have a tremendous
line and if their sophomore backs
have a good day they could upset
the 11th ranked Boilermakers.
Over at Evanston the unbeaten
Wildcats hope to celebrate their
Homecoming with a victory over
Indaina's Hoosiers. Coach Ara Par-

seghian seems to come -up with a
quarterback for every occasion and
today probably will not be an ex-
ception. Sophomore John Talley
has led the Cats the past two
weeks against Notre Dame and
Michigan and will.sta t again to-
MSU-OSU Rated Even
At Columbus, the game between
Ohio State and Michigan State is
rated a tossup. The Buckeyes have
been a surprising football team
this fall. After being rated a con-
tender by sportswriters before the
season started they have flopped.
The. only game in which they
looked good was their 15-0 upset
of Purdue.
In the two non-conference
games, Iowa, despite the fact that
they have already lost three
games, is rated a 35-point favorite
over Kansas State and Minnesota
