At a la ■ hour when everything was ready for the four-cornered affair, all tickets were sold and everyone was expecting a little of the retrospect .-is well s the prospect, the Southern Pacific association, the Southern Califor nia division of the Amateur Athletic Union of America, got busy with their usual out-of season Interference and gave out the following written order that the Sherman and St. Vincent's game should be called off, else the other teams would be withdrawn or the participants banned from the amateur arenas.

There was a gasp of relief when the Soul 'in California Athletic club and the. Throop Polytechnic squads trotted on the field to begin practice, . nd from ! start to finish there was plenty of in j terest in the bleachers, although there were few real rooters on the stand. i At the start the club eleven swept everything before them. Lund, who 1 played with the University of South- | i crn California varsity this season and I j was named for the All-Southern Cali ! fornia team, In fact the find of the year, was back at his old position and was responsible for many of the long \ gains of the club lineup.

Lund made the first touchdown for the S. C. A. C. and Stables kicked goal. Herd made the other touchdown of the day In the third i J quarter and annexed the extra point i with a neat boot over the bar.
