NEW YORK, Dec. 12.-(P)-For the
second straight'season, a member of
the Southwest Conference has been
voted the nation's outstanding foot-
ball team by the final ballot of sports
writers and gridiron experts in every
section of the country.
Last year Texas Christian Univer-
sity, sparked by Davey O'Brien, was
on top of the heap in the closing As-
sociated Press poll. This time the
Texas Aggies, having waded unde-
feated and untied through a tough
schedule, won the distinction by an
iipressive margin over their closest
rivals, the Tennessee Volunteers.
Tennessee also wound up in second
place in 1938.
The Aggies polled 1091.points on
the basis of 10 for first place, 9 for
second, etc. Tennessee had 970,
Southern California 891, Cornell 889,
Tulane 804, Missouri 318 1-3, UCLA
289 5-6, Duke 232, Iowa 220 5-6, and
Duquesne 130 to round out the na-
tion's "Big Ten."
Of the first five leaders, four will
participate in outstanding "bowl"
games on New Year's Day, Tennessee
meeting Southern Cal in the Rose
Bowl and the Aggies tackling Tulane
in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans.
Cornell's great undefeated, untied
team announced early it would not
accept invitations. Missouri, sixth in
the final balloting, meets Georgia
Tech in the Orange Bowl at Miami.
Eleventh and twelfth in the voting,
with 120/2 and 112 points, respec-
tively, were Boston College and Clem-
son, who collide in the Cotton Bowl
game at Dallas. Notre Dame had 92
points, Santa Clara 87, Ohio Stae 70,
Georgia Tech 59, Fordham 26, Ne-
braska 22, Oklahoma 20, Michigan
18, Princeton 17, North Carolina 16.

Cagers Will Meet Three Newcomers
On Christmas Vacation Tour Of Easy
By CHRIS VIZAS
Michigan's basketball squad will
head Eastward following its battle
with Notre Dame here Saturday night,
and will engage five opponents, and
three of them will be newcomers to
the Wolverine schedule. Ten mien
will make the trip, and only those six
who played State are practically cer-
tain to go.
Rochester and Cornell will be the
only teams which the Wolverines
faced in last season's victory parade
on their holiday tour when they won
five straight and lost the final game
to Toledo 44-36.
The replacements for Syracuse,
Butler and Toledo, who were on last
year's schedule, are Connecticut, Tu-
lane and Pittsburgh. The Panthers
under the new Bowman Code are
engaging all of the Big Ten squads
that they possibly can. In addition
to Michigan, Pittsburgh will play
Northwestern, Ohio State, and In-
diana, and none of these teams can
be classed as "breathers."
Panthers Show Promise
Pittsburgh has one of the most
promising teams in the East having
lost only one man through gradua-
tion. However, the sensational sopho-
more Bob Pattrath, who led the
Panthers in scoring last season has
failed to report, but Dr. Carlson, head
basketball coach, is not greatly dis-
turbed by his loss. Pittsburgh will
be Michigan's last road opponent,
and they will clash on New Year's
Day at Columbus, Ohio.
Carlson will have two scoring stars
from last year's freshman squad,
Eddie Ziolkowski and Jim Egan, bid-
ding for Pattrath's vacant spot. All
together eight veteran lettermen are
returning and five of these are Jun-
iors, which means the Panthers
should have another good squad next
Connecticut will have an all veteran
team to send on the floor which
should give the Wolverines quite a
battle in their opening contest at
