was booming at St Marys to day as the Galloping Gaels reached the peak of prepara tions for their sixth annual Tur key Day clash with the Univer sity of Oregon at Kezar Stadium Thursday Seeking to shake off the disinter est attendant upon a waning sea son Coach Slip Madigan had two lectures and another scrimmage ses sion on todays grid docket at Mo raga This is the second slambang workout in three days and definitely indicated that trouble is anticipated in smacking Oregons twicebeaten Webfeet DENNERLEIN TO PLAY Madigan also announced that he would use Jerry Dennerlein big sophomore tackle for the first time this season Dennerlein was in jured before the first game and the general impression was that Slip would keep him out of competition this year Jerry told me that he had no intention nf remaining in school an extra year just to play foot ball so theres no use in saving him Madigan declared He will pay against Oregon Thursday if Iczerski shows any sign of weakness Al Nichclini Is suffering from an Injured shoulder but Madigan has hopes of him bcing able to play Additional strength was given the Gaels by the return of Vic Strub to the active playing list Strub who fills in for Felix Pen nine at left end has been out since the U C L A game with an in jured shoulder His presence brings the Moragans to full strength FLANS TRICKV RETURNS Stealing a page from the Trojan notebook Madigan said he would use Ned OLoughlin at safety in an effort to have him emulate Cotton Warburtons punt returning that was so disastrous to the Ore gonians when they played South ern California If OLoughlin does crash the lineup it will be bis first game since the opener with Co lumbia He is the lightest man on the squad and the trickiest runner Sammy Wllderman Oregons advance man

team played U S C and hts fine kicking was sorely misscil Parkes presence on the Oregon team assures spectators of a bril liant punting duel Mai Ficse St Marys quarterback will vie with him in this department and the result should be interesting Fiese has already contested with such able hooters as Arleigh Williams of California Frank Sobrero of Santa Clara and Ed Goddard of Washington Slate holding his own in every instance Parke is re putedly the Northwests greatest and he will have to be to outshine the coldly calculating Fiese TACKLE BATTLE SEEN Next most interesting individual battle will be waged at left end with Oregons outstanding All Coast candidate Butch Morse pitted against Tackle Herm Meister St Marys Morses adept work at blocking tackles has resulted in plays through this particular sector gaining the most ground for the Webfeot For the Gaels big blond Herman has been practically im movable all Fall and if Morse can handle him he will be doing a fine job Although Slip keeps on haran gueing Jim Austin in practice the Hollywood Adonis has apparently inherited the right end position He played some against U C L A started the Santa Clara game and looked good in both Ev

Stanford versus Alabama Kezar Stadium January 1 for the benefit of the Shrine Hospital for Crip pled Children Yes its just a beauti ful by the time this story hits the street you will have read perhaps that Stanford has been selected by the Pacific Coast inference to represent the West at Pasadena But the thinking citizens of Northern California are saying Why not keep the money at home Why be good samaritans and pay the expenses of the Pasadena Tour nament of Hoses and aid the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce in selling Southern California when our own Californians Inc is beg ging for money to publicize the northern end of the state Northern California has supported Stanford football and the Indians should be sufficiently civicminded to listen to an appeal to play here FIVE GOOD REASONS Here are five good reasons why Stanford should play Alabama at Kezar get hardboiled and honest about first reason Is money Last year at Pasadena Stanford got net After all expenses were paid the In dians did not liank more than 510000 Columbia incurred ex penses exceeding and lost approximately 52000 on the trip West The only Columbia fartor who made money is Coach Lou Little and hes getting it back in magazine articles explaining how he defeated Stanford The Pasa dena Rose Bowl took onethird of the gross to pay the expenses of the Rose roses come from Northern Cali fornia and cashed In with a national radio hookup and with every paper in the land carrying a story on the beauties of Pasadena and the ball game Stanford players do n o t want to go to the Rose Bowl because they are deprived of their Christmas vacations are not pro vided with spending money by the Stanford authorities nre charged with phone calls to Los Angeles and other expenses which should be listed as legitimate Stanford cannot because of the socalled amateur angle give the boys wristwatches or some other prize for participating in a game which is not part of the regular schedule and in which universities only en gage because of the monetary re turn TO IMPROVE LINKS selling 40000 seats at Kezar at 5440 and 30000 at you would got a gross gate of From this take 15 per for the use of Kezar Stadium Let us say here that every charity game including the Santa Clara St Marys Knights of Columbus DeMolay and the Shrine EastWest takes a percentage of the field Continued on next Sport pace

W 100 By ART POTTER Califor nia Memorial Stadium broods in silence today for the 1034 campaign of the Golden Bears is gridiron history now But for the next year there will remain indeli bly etched in the minds of those who saw it the memory of the al most perfect game that was staged in Strawberry Canyon last Satur day As far as the Boar players are concerned there are new fields to conquer for California will set sail for the Hawaiian Islands in three weeks to face the University of Hawaii eleven and the Honolulu Town Team in two holiday battles Present plans call for the Bears to sail for the land of languor on De cember 14 and they will not return until early in January in35 For the present there will he no fnrttball for final examinations are coming up and the boys who have been hitting the tine for the past ten weeks will put In their time hitting the books There Is a possibility that the Bears will engage in some light drills in the near future but Coach Bill Ingram hasnt made up his mind about that as yet On Ihe campus today they are still Jiving over the high points of Saturdays classic Opinion is unan imous that although the Bears lost it was the best football game that they have played all year and one of the best exhibitions ever staged In the Berkeley Bowl The name Arleigh Williams California captain is on every tongue You cant name an all anything team in this town and omit the name of Williams without gel ting into an argument Whats more there are 65000 witnesses to the fact that Williams was an allAmerican Saturday He did everything well and came close to stripping the gears out of the Big Red Machine But briJliant as was bin work Saturday it was no more than California followers have come to expect of their stellar halfback For three seasons Williams has been the mainspring of the Bear attack His kicking and passing are probably the best of any back on the Pacific slope He has car ried the ball a major portion nf the time in every game he has played in and his all time average per try Is something over 25 yards a play In his spare moments he holds down the safety spot and on the de fense against an aerial attack he has proved steady and dependable Only the fact that Arleigh is a re tiring quiet gentleman who says it with deeds rather than words has kept him from getting the recogni tion he deserves If there is any quality which is needed to rate a spot on the mythical AllAmerica which Williams hasnt demonstrated he possesses 65000 fans who saw him end his playing career on home soil cant for the life of them think of what it is Williams play was a standout but if you take that ball game as a single picture It approximates the zenith of technical perfection The selection of plays made by both teams was excellent The blocking was precise and ter rific in its intensity but two well trained defenses met all the power which their opponents could muster and called onall the raw coiirage whichthisgame of football calls

IJ Missouri Wash U fi 1 imillll BOBBY I li nlllini GRAYSON HELD HURT BEFORE CALIFORNIA CONTEST ON GOOD authority we have it that the injury of Bobby Grayson Stanfords star fullback came as no surprise in the Bij Game witli the California Boars Saturday ami thai Conch Tiny Thornhill hadnt counted on using his star back for more than a fraction of the game The reason they say is thai Bobby received broken ribs in the WashingtonStanford lilt and merely had them bumped by California At the Arleigh Williams the lillle package of California dynamite had Iwo punls blocked one of llicm with disastrous results Saturday against Stanford Both were blocked by Carl Schott lower hero of the Big Game But heres a beauly that was sent on its way as ample protection was provided Bert Welch is block ing out Alec Trompas while Chuck Cotton 63 de tained Keith Topping sufficiently to enable Arleigh to punt From ihe right side of the Stanford line is charging Claude Callaway but hes too late to do any good Ken Moeller 66 and Crosby Beedy on the other side of thepilc are starling down the field white Frank Alustiza extreme right is looking for some one to block The kick put the Bears out of the hole momentarily for Williams booted from his pholo Harry Rosenberg To Join Sacramento INDIANAPOLIS Sacramento of the Pacific Coast League has jmrchased Outfielder Harry Rosenberg from Indianapolis oft the Arnerlcan Association The Associated Press erroneously Thurs day that Rpscnbcrg had been sold to SanFrancisco again lime of his injury two weeks ago Stanford hospital authori ties announced his ailment as n slight internal injury as a re sult of a kick in the stomach He spent four days in the hospital and did not play against the Olym pic Club O O O npHOSE supposedly in the I know say that tiio true nature of nohhys aliment was kept a secret because there was a possibility thai he could play through the Big Game with out having those particular ribs hit again Keeping the exact de scription of injuries a secret is an ancient bit nf coaching strat egy recalling stories nf the mid western coach who crietl about the bad left knee hts star half back had contracted and even bandaged that member when in reality his right knee was the weak one Stanford is idcaily situated for the squashing nf news of this type The hospital staff is well trained in making reports When Jim Moscrip hurt his knee last Thursday afternoon he was taken to the hospital yet there was no rccorfl nf Tlm having been here and the news was not discovered untilthe next morning by the Interested world Not until he was known to be definitely out did word come that he might not play t o ojt which comes up as a re sult of assertions by fans to tally without official connec tion with either university that California wa put to get Grayson A early in the gam ThereIs n distinct line of demarcation bell football and dirty football There Is little doubt but that Stanford was never hit harder by California Saturday but retaliated with equal force Vet close observers failed to witness any incidents that even approach the border line of illegality O O O STAN ANDERSON who took Graysons place at fullback was twice taken from the game in a groggy condition but the manner in which he was injured was apparent to all He started a line smash was hit hard by a shoeslriiifr tackle which scst him into the air in a headfirst dive over the line Stan hit flush on his head which is usually enough to make any football player groggy The Big Gntne action was as rough and lough as any seen on the coast this year It was marked by desperate lunges hard tackles and crushing blocks Spirit always runs high in a game like that but doesnt necessarily indi cate foul play tt r There ware comparatively few penal in the grime Cnlilornia being socked twice for clipping n7ien n punted hnll 1105 in the air and Stan ford twice for offsides fi ft 3 echoes ot the contest still PASADENA Nov 26 the second consecutive year Stanford was selected today to represent the West JTI the annual Rose Tournament football game here New Years Day The announcement came from Prof Hugh C Willett of the Uni versity of Southern California president of the Pacific Coast Con ference which had been empowered this year to make the Western choice It was no surprise since the mighty Redshirts of Palo Alto finished the season Saturday un beaten UNANIMOUS CHOICE Prof Willett issued the following statement Stanford was selected by the unanimous vote of the Pacific Coast Conference to represent the West in the Rose Bowl game Stanford as in other years will be given a free reigrn to select its own opponent from ihe East South or Middle West This was not expected to come before the end of the week It was believed that cither Alabama Colgate Pittsburgh or Columbia would gct the call Stanford weathered a tough con ference schedule unbeaten and and untied but was tied by Santa Clara in a nonconference struggle WIN ONE IN FOUR The Indians have fared hone too well in their previous Rose Bowl encounters In 1925 Notre Dames Four HorsemenTouted the Redskins 27 to 10 Two years later Alabama held them to to 7 tie In 1328 they beat Pittsburgh 7to 6 and January 1 last Columbia de feated Coach Tiny Thornhills team 7 f 0 in a sensational upset The team this year which has been scored upon only twice almost man for man is the same that last New Years Day 7 Stanford Board Meets I Todav Alabama Favored By PHIL RAY The Stanford Board of Athletic Control with the Rose Bowl invita tion safely in its back pocket met at Palo AHo this afternoon to se lect an Eastern opponent for the New Years Day game at Pasadena Whether the choice would be an nounced immediately affer he meeting or delayed pending an ac ceptance wos not intimated by Al fred K Masters Stanfords graduate mannccr BAMA BKLIEVED The naming of Stanford by the vote of the Pacific Coast Con ference delegates today was a mere formality since the Indians alone finished their season on theCoast undefeated Alabama looms as almost a cer tain choice since Minnesota is the only other major undefeated team in the East It may be that Masters will play safe and wait until Ala bama meets Vanderbilt Thursday before announcing the selection For Masters there will be no jrreat elation accompanyinghis art nounccmcnt for Minnesota not Alabama is the team that would 1am the Hose Bowl But Minne sota and the other Big1 Ten teams shun Jhe Fasadena game as i commercial enterprise There is no doubt as to Stan fords superiority in the West but even if the Indians succeed in trouncing the Bamans the voices of the eastern and middle western scribes will continue to rise in praise of Minnesota as the nations best learn They can speakin un qualified terms for the meeting that might prove them wrong will never take place COLGATE IS BOOSTED The only other prospect for the contest seems to be Andy Kerrs Colgate team which suffered but one defeat this season a 10 to 7 verdict to the Ohio State team that took second to the Gophers in the Big Ten The other Colgate opponents however are not considered to be of the first magnitude The same might well be said of Alabama for that matter for while the Crimson Tide is undefeated tSe list of its vanquished is devoid of tough opponents Here is the Barna record 1 ALABAMA 24 Howarrt A 35 Sewanee 6 41Mississippi

droppedthe pound for povNjid part arsd praised his game as the on 253 32 According to the dope Alabama should win over thricebeaten Van derbilt but there have been one or two upsets this season and it
