Oakland Tribune (Newspaper) - November 26, 1934, Oakland, California OAKLAND TRIBUNE MONDAY NOVEMBER 26 1934 Stanford Daily Reproves Singers Cal Paper Says It Was Poor Sportsmanship A ribald song hurled at the Stan ford adherents after the Big Game Saturday by the California rootinr section brought sharp reproof today from student publications on both campuses while one of them the Stanford Daily also criticized what it declared were the unneces sarily rough tactics used by Cali fornja players in the game itself The song in question character ized by Stanley Beaubaire Stan ford editor a one of the vilest on record had he said probably only once before been heard in a football stadium And that once he went on was at last years game when the U C rooting section was also the offender It had been over looked by Stanford at that time Beaubaire declared in the hope that it might have been accidental and not to be repeated SINGING PROTESTED Walter Christie Jr editor of the Daily Caliiornian described the singing as unsportsmanlike and hoodlumsounding shrieking which might easily be construed as mean ing that California is a bunch of poor sports who don t know how to take it The first and most Innocentline of the song begins The Cardinal be damned boys1 The entire song was sung completely unexpur gated version by Ihe California rooters as the Stanford band and rooters crossed the field to the California side after the game had ended with Stanfords 0 to 7 victory The offending song runs to the same tune as Stanfords Son of a Gambolier which the band was playing as it crossed the field and to Californias Jolly Sophomore But to the surprise of spectators the California roofing section took up the air not with the words of of the familiar songs but with those usually reseryed for the concluding hours of stag parties on the California campus BLAME IS PLACED Beaubaire in a statement today placed vthe blame for the rooting sectionsaction on Bill Johnson U C varsity yell leader who he said should have been able to con trol his rooters But Johnson ox plained that he had teen busy at the time trying to get the Stanford yell leader up on the rail beside him arid had paid no attention to what the rooters were singing In his Stanford Daily editorial Beaubaire also declared today that the game was a bloody spectacle that saw fists fly and blows regis tered on the weary flesh whenof ficials were looking the other way The editorial which was headed Win or Lose Fair Play Comes First continued Varsity ball carriers who nursed a yen for a sock at the other guys jaw might still play a hard fast contest without the rough stuff that goes with that kind of a II ended with a pica that the friendly rivalry that was once Californias and Stanfords be revived that dirt and filth be removed from thoughts as well as actions that there be no more hate and that future relations be clean Members of the Stanford varsity today had no criticism to make of the roughness of their opponents in Saturdays game although some of them blamed officials for permit ting it Sure there was rough stuff said one of them but I blame the offi cials who could have warned both teams against unnecessary piling up The California players were prob nbly too eager at times but when youre the under dog thats about the only thing to do And that was certainly the best dogfight Ive ever been in COMPLIMENT PAID Christie after lashing out at the actions of his own rooting section paid a compliment to the Stanford team and lamented that so much stress had been placed earlier in the season on Californias hopes of playing in the Rose Bowl The sportsmanship was consider ing everything almost all that could be expected he wrote Aside from the Bear rooting sections unsports manlike and hoodlumsounding shrieking of The Cardinal Be Damned which might easily be construed as meaning that Cal is a bunch of poor sports who dont know how to take it the spirit was grand The Stanford Farm can well he proud of its conquering Cardinal varsity The work of the California var sity he said had helped greatly to do earlyseason criticism Coach Navy Bill Ingram But he continued addressing himself to Ingram himself dont tell the newspaper reporters next Summer that we expect to play in the Rose Bowl at the end of nex1 season Dont stick your neck out Lets not mention the Rose Bowl till the day after we beat Stanford A n VKRTISRM SOME WOMEN ALWAYS ATTRACT You want to be beautiful You want the tireless energy fresh complexion and pop of youth Then let Dr Edwards Olive

both the Stanford and California campuses today criti cized the singing of nn song after Saturdays Big Game besides Stanford defeated California fairly and squarelyand we might as well stop right there But that would not prevent repetition of the shameful and degrading example of poor sportsmanship that marred an otherwise great day in Berkeley for some 70000 roaring raving fans The game itself a bloody spec tacle of 60 minutes that saw fists fly and blows register on weary flesh when officials were looking the other way was scarcely over before the California rooting sec tion joined in a chant that has probably been heard but once be fore in a football stadium That once was last year when the same California rooting section delivered the same obnoxious pornographic ditty in an unex purgated version of one of the vilest songs on record Twelve months ago the Daily hoping that the occurrence might have been accidental and not to be repeated said nothing Today the Daily asks that the friendly rivalry that was once Californias and Stanfords be re vived that dirt and filth be re moved from thought as well as actions that there be no hate and that future relations be clean One point is 1935 and every 12 months there after cannot and shall not see a Big Game that might leave any taint in the mind of the poor fellow who brings the kiddies to see the color glory of a clean amateur performance by two topriolch outfits For the rooters a large sized dose of good yell leadings and mass psychology is recommended Var sity ball carrierswho nurse a yen for a sock at the other guys jaw might still play a hard fast con test without the rough stuff that sometimes goes with it when coaches issue the edict Play clean or dont play Following is the editorial that ap peared today in Californias own stu dent paper the Daily Its over but The Stanford farm can well be proud of Us confident Cardinals varsity The Thprnhill team you know barely edged out one of Americas great football squads Sat urday in Memorial Stadium fating one or other issues relat ing to the same contest The first is from Ihe Stanford Daily it appeared under the heading Win or Loic Fair Play Comes First The 9 to 7 margin was narrow enough to definitely curtail the An vil Chorus that has been hollering for Coach Ingrams scalp up until the CaliforniaU S C tilt Our varsity coach will undoubt edly remain with us this year Incidentally Mr Ingram now that the Reason is over except for that pleasant little voyage to the Isle of Golden here is a polite suggestion offered in the best of faith Dont tell newspaper reporters in midSummer that you intend to play in the Rose Bowl January 1 Dont in short stick your neck you will find that things on this funny old campus will click along in smooth style Students at good old Cal U arent realljsuch perennial moaners as they have been pictured alumni arent entirely big bad wolves just waiting to get1 coaches and the general public fless the cash cus tomers generally displays fairness in its acceptance or disapproval of a coach And surely there is no fraternity menace to upset the lo cal football applecart With a sensational freshman foot ball team plus the veterans of this years team there is no reason in the world why California shouldnt go places on the gridiron next Fall But lets not mention Uie Rose Bowl until the day after beat Stan ford Sportsmanship waS considering everything almost all that could be expected Aside from the Bear root ing section unsportsmanlike and hoodlum sounding shrieking ot The Cardinals Be Damned after the might easily be con strued as meaning that California has a bunch of poor sports who dont know How to take spirit was grand Never has the California rooting section responded so unanimously as in the cheer for the varsity right after the game It was a wholesome sign of loy the old Rah Rah State U nor the Die for Dear Old Rutgers goody of real spirit which the California has had this semester

Mrs Gibbs she said kept moving all the time and Ikcpt try ing toget in touch with her by telephone She told me early in 1032 afler we had invested our money that we would get for every we invested She told me not to worry about the delay When theelection came up I telephoned to ask if it made any difference if Hoover or Roosevelt were elected She told me that it would not She said both Hoover and Roosevelt were vitally inter ested My mother and I felt better then And she told me that Mar shall Hale of San Francisco an in fluential capitalist was a big stock holder in the concern Again in November 1932 I tele phoned Mrs Gibbs She said the deal was about completed and that we would get our money in 30 days EXPECTED BIG PROFITS On these representations my mother and I borrowed money and incurred debts to make more in vestments in their secret oil process We expected large profits Then Mrs Gibbs told me to go right ahead nnd not to worry to buy anything we wanted because big money would come to us soon But in January 1933 I called her again nnd asked about the delay She said there was some difficulty among the men in the company but that everything would be cleared up soon Then March came and May I telephoned her again and she said she could not tell me Ihe exact cause of the delay but that it was be cause of trouble in San Francisco where the men wore too greedy and were trying to spoil everything that had beendone so far In June then she lold me every thing was all right that the deal in New York would be completed for certain by Christmas Miss Lyon also told how Henry Steiner company salesman in fluenced her to buy the slock by his declarations it was the most wonderful opportunity He told me she said lhat representatives of the major com panies including

back with him coiv elusive evidence Marie Byrd Land runs in an unbroken line from the Antarctic coast to the South Pole and that a transarctic straight doas not exist The result of the seven hour

Association today that Interstate Commerce Commis sion control of all transportation facilities would cure the nations shipping ills Speaking at 1he associations six teenth annual convention Eastman said the country needs the best system ot transportation that can bo provided and one which will utilize every means of transport to the best advantage each in its proper place and with amaximum of cooperation and a minimum of uneconomic duplication and waste One great trouble as I sec it ho said is that while transportation is a very live subject and there is plenty of talk ajjout it the talk is mostly by partisans Each form of carriage has its own particular watch dogs and to make the melee still hotter there is another lineup of the watch dogs of the investor of labor of shippers and of com munities The only interest which has lacked a watch dog has been the general public interest I am trying to occupy a small part of that vacancy and living in hope that I shall not be chewed up in the at tempt What the country needs as 1 have already indicated is the best and cheapest combined system of transportation with fair treatment of labor and with earn ings which will support adequate credit and the ability to expand as need develops and lake advantage of all improvements in the art of transportation Student Typing Awards Listed 1 RICHMOND Nov Union High School students who receive
