Christopher Columbus Would Have Nothing On the Discoverer of a Real Hope
NEWS WRITTEN BY LEADING EXPERTS
RIVAL VARSITY TEAMS
APPEAR TO BE EVENLY
MATCHED FOR BIG GAME
Man for man, how do the California and Stanford teams stack up?
It is a question that will undoubtedly be answered in many different
trays. It Is a matter on which very-
few of the experts will agree. Stan
ford men can sum up their own atari
to their satisfaction and show you ex
actly where one is better than tho
other: yet the California boys can
come right back at you and show you
where the Stanford version i* all
to the bad. and there is nothing to it
but the California. True, there are
one or two positions on each team
which the opposition concedes to the
other, but the work of the men in
these positions has been so prominent
that the merit must be handed out to
them. The teams as a whole on first
sight look to be evenly matched, but
man for man it is a hard thing to
judge just how they stack up.
Take the fullbacks, for Instance, and
there are a lot of things to consider.
Stanford is virtually sure of using An
drews in the position, and he has
shown in the last few weeks that he
has all the earmarks of a heady
player. Andrews is not a Benny Erb
nor are there any Benny Erbs play
ing this year. The nearest approach
to Erb is Sterling Peart of California.
FULLBACK IX DOI'BT
This same lad Peart is a stumbling
Mock and the California fans are
waiting to see just where he will be
placed Should he be put in at full
rack California will have the best of
this situation. However, should either
Skinner or Bogardus be used it looks
as though Andrews will have a trifle
on either Skinner has been worked
and coached considerably, and it looks
as though he might get the position
over Bogardus, though the latter has
three good seasons as a member or
the varsity squad. Skinner is show
ing good kicking for touch, and An
drews is doing equally as good, with
Bogardus not making such long gains.
Bogardus and Skinner are both good
at stopping up rushes and go after
the ball without any thought of the
consequences. Andrews is also just as
good as these lads at this work and
shines If anything in being able to
get off the ball and retain possession
of it at his 'cot.
CARROL A REAL STAR
On the three-quarter line there is
not a m<»n on the California team to
equal Dannv Carrol. Carrol has the

Taken as a three-quarter line
»' h(1 " p rP , Prire „f Carrol certainly gives
the Stanford team the best of the
argument, as the work of this experi

entire Stanford back field.
\s fives on the work up to the pres
ent is a tower of strength to the J
blue and'gold. He is a man with more
experience than Austin, lacking in j
nerves and able to go through a hard
end strenuous game. Austin is a good .
tricky player and can play a great i
game*. He swerves to perfection, but |
liv»»« to Dlav too much for himself, I
has the signs on Laehmund, though ]
there is not a very big difference. All
|a all, the blue and gold looks to have j
a shade on the five-eighth Hne.
MORRIS HAS THE EDGE
Canfield at halfback has made al
good showing for Caiifornia in the j
■irellminarv games, but the finish 1s j
*n»v> n nr htm work that characterized
that of Monty Morris, and this will he
a big thing in Saturday's game. Til
ton will probably be the Stanford half
a-id he has «hown to the best advan
tage of the Stanford scrum men. At
t: at he is not over brilliant, and un
less he can get his passes out to his
barkfield and open up the game, it is
hard to say whether Tilton or Can
tfleia -will prove the better. On their
r#i.owing to date there is nothing sen
eat onal about the work of either.
In Gard and Darsie. Stanford has |
two breakaways that are the class.
Both men are quick and agile as
t l-. r«, and around the scrum ready to
nip a pass the minute the ball is lost.
If anything these two have It for
break work on their rivals, Fleming
In the front row of the scrum Hall,
perk and Wines are a trio of hookers
that are said by New Zealand front
rankers to be slightly better than the
California trio, Abrams, McKlm or
Fenst ermacher. McKim Is a fast
honker, but If the other men fail to
support him it Is not expected that
he can outhook three good men.
Iv the loose McKim is better than
either of the three Stnnford front
rankers and it is a question of who
is the best on the llneout. It is really
a hard matter to judge off hand, but
the actual contest between the men
will tell the tale.
MIDDLE RANK IS CLOSE
Clover and Blase, the Stanford mid
ih rankers, are two huskies who can
OS< their weight to advantage In the
scrum, Lockhardt or Fish and Saun
d< rs appear the men most favored for
fhe same positions in the scrum of the
California team. There is no advan
tage of any account on which either
sets of men can claim superiority in
the s< rum positions they play, but
their wrk in the loose is what counts.
Rlase :md Clover have both shown
themselves better dribblers than the
California men. and thei" work on the
line has been more consistent In the
These are a few comparisons of the
men as their work has been seen In
the various games played. It is com
parison that simply analyzes the
playing of each man. Just whether
the men can live up to their play
ing in the early season games remains
to he seen. It is the rule rather than
C •■ '• \< eption that the players at both
g ersitles show to hest advantage In
Vie big game. If this Is the case,
then the playing of the men should
be even better than the comparisons
Indicate though, of course, there will
be a comparative betterment in the
work of the weaker men as well.
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Nov. 6.
"Go get 'em" is the slogan that is
being reiterated in every nook and
'. corner of the campus, where groups
!of exdited football enthusiasts are
: discussing the coming blue ribbon
; football event. Captain Jimmy
j Thoburn yesterday received a
! telegram from J. R. Pemberton '08
and L. C. Decius '13, containing the
j words "Go get 'em." This came from
far away Rio de Janeiro and traveled
! over the campus like wildfire and
: typified the spirit of the undergrad
t uates who will be behind the 15 var
| sity Ruggers to the last whistle on
Both Pemberton and Decius are
j expert Rugby football players. Pern
| berton played on more than one win
' nlng Stanford team, while Decius
would have stood a fine chance of
| making this year's varsity fifteen had
Ihe not decided to leave college. Both
I know what the whole souled support
of the student body means and the
students are responding by making
the faraway appeal their own.
Arrayed In their new uniforms of
cardinal hued jerseys and stockings,
new football trousers, belts and shoes,
15 athletes conditioned to the minute
for the fight of their lives will trot
out of the training house on to the
turf this afternoon at a given signal
from Coach Brown, who will thus an
nounce to the expectantly waiting
bleacherites the names of the heroes
who will represent Stanford.
MOXSTER RALLY PLANNED
This evening the monster rally and
final sendoff for the 1913 varsity will
be held In the assembly hall prior to
the gathering. The campus will be
brilliantly Illuminated by the burning
of red fire In front of all the frater
nity, sorority and club houses. The
big Stanford military band will oc
cupy the assembly hall platform, and
will start the big rally by playing
the stirring cardinal songs.
Yell Leaders Don Cass, Carey Nixon
and "Dutch" Kuhl will be in charge
of the rally, and when the big team
and the substitutes enter the hall, led
by Captain J. H. Thoburn, they will
have some job In quieting th* enthu
siastic students, who yelled and
cheered for fully 20 continuous min
utes in the rally l#st year.
In addition to Coach Brown and
Trainer Maloney, the speakers to ad
dress the meeting are former Rugby
Coach George J. Presley '07. "Stubby"
Stolz '09, a Rhodes scholar and a
member of the English university
football team; Palmer Fuller '10 and
Ed Cunha '06.
The strength of the Stanford team
on Saturday and the hope of their
bringing victory to the country of
the cardinal again, after three suc
cessive defeats, lies mainly In the
speed of the backfleld, and. of course,
presupposing that the forwards are
able to get the ball out to the half

the lineup that the fans had expected.
if there Is any slight surprise at all
It is the placing of Freshman Skinner
at fullback. The workout given this
lad down at Stanford the other day,
however, was so noticeable that the
few who witnessed the practice of the
blue and gold had good grounds to
believe that the coaches were going to
use Skinner Instead of Bogardus.
The surmise for a week past has
been that Sterling Peart might have
been used as fullback and even now
there may be n possible chance of see
ing the skipper there. As to whether
Peart plays fullback or five-eighths
depends entirely on the weather con.

great combination in their play. It
will only be as a last resort to
strengthen the fullback position that
the coaches would consider breaking
up this combination.
Canfield has won over Montgomery
as halfback, though the selection is
not one to occasion any surprise.
Montgomery has shown himself a
good halfback, but Canfield has dis
played better form. Canfield has
played a consistent game throughout
the season and has earned his place
on the team.
In spite of the drizzle and cold
wind which swept the field. Lick and
Mission yesterday put up a good ex
hibition of Rugby, Lick putting over
a 9-0 victory. The teams were very
evenly matched, both having the ball
at their goals on several occasions.
The first goal came when Ashed,
after a passing rush, kicked to Web
ster, who went across for thre*
points. McAbel failed to convert. A
second attempt at conversion failed
after Gustard had gone across for
three more. Asher took the ball over
for the last score in the first half
and there was no scoring In the last

New Zealand won what was sup
posed to be a game of Rugby football
against the St. Mary's college boys
yesterday at St. Ignatius stadium by
a score of 26 to 0. It was not New
Zealand's fault nor the college boys'
fault that the game failed to be an
exhibition of Rugby. The blame rests
with our old college chum, Jupe Pluve,
and the surface of SL Ignatius ground
failing to agree. Jupe shed his tears
a-plenty the day before, and the
ground, with its nice, red. sticky
adobe, prevented the pttTylng of
Though St. Mary's held the New
Zealanders to the lowest score of
their tour, the visitors did not play
th« game that they did on the muddy
California field. The unheard of con
ditions of having to play In the mud
failed to appeal to the Npw Zpaland
ers. and no one blamed them very
much for just about playing well
enough to win.
At that, however, the St. Mary's de
fense was good and they held the vis
itors to advantage, and In the second
spell the Oakland collegians started
one or two passing rushes, in which
they handled the sticky, greasy ball
New Zealand scored four tries in the
first half through the efforts of Doug
las, who tallied two tries, and Cuthill
and Dick Roberts, one each. By an
extraordinary effort Roberts converted
one try. making the score at half time
14 to 0. In the second half Love
ridge, Roberts and Cuthill, with two
tries, tallied, making the final score
