who scouted the Jackrabbits at

he thought that Ralph Glnn's

as any team he had ever seen.

Retilaff, dynamic 195-pound full
back. Ray Doncls, chief Cyclone

would be as good a fullback as
any team would want.
Iowa State will be minus
several of its key players for
the game with the Jackrabbits.
Bill Byrus, No. 1 right tackle;
Jack Lessin, No. 1 right guard;
Ron Swanson, No. 2 right guard,

spot, will all miss the game.
Swanson is out for the season

Turning from the controversial but interesting question of
athletio de-emphasis, especially in the field of football, let s take a
quick look at baseball. For the second straight year the Cleveland
Indians have produced three twenty game winners, while the rest
of the American League clubs were happy with only two at the
very most. But what happens? For the second straight year the
Indians have finished in second place, two or three games behind
the leading New York Yankees. In 1951, the Indians had a fourth
pitcher who hurled 17 wins, which still wasn't enough to win the
