Golden stato boys romped on Ohio stato Unt winter wo naturally.
havo a wholesome respect for the Hears, but In this section football fans
get but Utile reol dope on tho Pacific coast champion. Tho following
story about tho California team, by Walter Kckcrsall In tho Chk-agu
Tribune, Is Interesting:
"University of California, football champion of tho Pacific coast,
which will meet some strong mlddlo west or eastern eleven In th"
lntersectlonal strugglo at Pusadena on New Year's day, has made a
great record during tho season Just clossd.
"Tho team has engaged In nlno contests nnd has scored 312 polnls
against 33 points for Its opponents. Washington state gavo tho Hear
their hardest battle of the coast conference race, holding the Gulden
state teajn to 11 points. Oregon was defeated, 33 to 0; Unlvorslty ot
Washington, 72 to 3, and Leland Stanford, 42 to 7.
"Tho eleven was developed by Andy Smith, former University of
Pennsylvania fullback, who afterward coached at his nlma mator and
then had chargo of football at Purdue. Smith Indicated his worth
as n gridiron mentor at tho Hollormaker Institution, but his nbllltoy to
develop winning elevens was snown conclusively last year when his
California eleven not only won tho pacific coast title, but defmtnl
Ohio state, last year's 13lg Ten champion, 2S to 0, In tho Tournament
of Hoses gamo at Pasadena.
"With tho exception of Majors at guard nnd Sprott at halfback.
Coach Smith had the same men back, Coach Smith had tho saino
men back this season who played a year ago. Although Ilrlck Mullor,
the great end, has been of little scrvlco to tho team,-Coach Smith
has developed a great end In Stephens. 'According to tho California
coach, Stephens Is a better football man thun Miller, with tho ex
ception ot throwing and catching forward passes.
"Dan McMillan, tackle; Toomcy, halfback, and F.rb, quarterback,
nro other reliable porformcrs on tho California cloven deserving of
"If Iowa, western conferenco chumplon, and Cornell, ono of tho un
defeated elevens of the east, are unable to make tho trip to meet
California In tho Now Year's day battle, the Tournament of Hoses
rommltteo would make no mistake by sending an Invitation to Notro
"Coach Rocknc'a eleven Is Just the typo of team which could stand
the long trip nnd play smart football during tho game. A team to
beat California must bo of tho rugged sort which can play tho ckoco
nnd open game for equal success1. Notro Damo Is undoubtedly one of
tho best forward passing elevens of the year and Its open Attack would
worry tho Hears for a time at least.
