Rugby Teams Like Tweedledum and Tweedledee
"Dope ,, Experts Nearly Turn
Gray Trying to Figure Out
Big Game Winner
Merchants and business men tell us
that 'figures do not lie," but how far
a Rugby fan can depend on figures is
problematical, the "system" having been
upset on many previous occasions. The
figures this year do not prove much
more than in any other year, beyond
the fact that a radical change has
taken place in the brand of football
Never in the history of Rugby in this
state has either California or Stanford
scored so few points against opponents
as has been the case this year, and the
opposition clubs have never before
scored so many points on the varsity
i«?ams. What's the answer?
L Compare the last season and the pres
ent one: California last year tallied
points, while this year it has only
94 to its credit. Stanford last season
scored 201 points, but this year can
show only 91. Last year the opposition
tallied only 28 points against Califor
nia, while this season the clubmen and
others, including the "Waratahs, have run
up the big total of 52 points. Stanford
last season had to acknowledge only 18
points against it, but this year the op
position has scored 44 points.
These figures will give the calcula
tors considerable to think about. Just i
what they mean is plain. They mean i
that club football is on the up grade j
and that the Barbarians and Olympic;
< lub men have played far better Rugby !
this year than ever before. The stand
ard at both universities has been about
on a par with last year.
The preliminary games this year have
been the cause of many surprises, the
greatest perhaps being sprung in the
Stanford camp, in 1907 the Barbarian
club was able to hold the varsity teams
to an even break, and at the end of the
season the clubmen and varsity stars
came through the trials with about the
same number of games won and lost.
During the interim both California and
Stanford have proved too strong for the
club teams, but this year Santa Clara
defeated Stanford a couple of weeks ago
by 15 points to 10, and within three
days the Barbs put the cardinal on the
short end of a 6 to 0 score.
These two teams have accomplished
something against Stanford that no
team has been able to do since 1907, but
l the blue and gold came through the sea
son without a defeat—excepting, of
course, the games against the Austra
Every game played by the Barbar
ians and Olympics against the varsity
men this year has been harder fought,
and the scores more even, than for
many a Rug"by moon past. California
and the Olympic club have played three
>c games, the scores being 5 to 3,
% o 0 and 5 to 0. The Barbarian club
men failed to hold the blue and gold
as well as the Olympic men, their two
games going against them with scores
of 16 to 0 and 16 to 3. At that, how
ever, the Barbs' scores are better than
in previous years.
In the games between Stanford and
the two club teams, however, the scor
ing is reversed. Stanford beat the
Olympics in the first game by a margin
of 1 point, the score being 6 to 5. In
the next meeWng, however, Stanford
won by 17 to 0. and in the final game
by 19 to 0. In contrast to these scores
the Barbarians were beaten by 12 to
0 in the first contest, but on their
second venture the score stood 6 to 0
In favor of the Barbs.
The scoring in these club games was
so nearly even that it is a hard mat
ter to see just where one or the other
varsity team has any decided advant
age. If there is any such advantage
it must be considered as California's,
W owing to the defeat of Stanford by the
The games on which most of the
dope is being figured are those played
against the Australians. California
played three with the visitors, while
Stanford played two. Each university
won one game apiece, in which the
scores stood just about on an equality.
California won by 6 points to 5. while
Stanford won by 13 points to 12. The
rest of the games in these series
showed Australia defeating the Cali
fornia teams easily, though in justice
to the blue and gold it must be ad
mitted that the third game was played
by them with virtually a eecond v'ar
v lineup. The other game againsl
Stanford was won by Australia, but
only by 6 points to f>. On this showing
against the Australians the Stanford
varsity team shows up to best ad
Taken as a whole, the results of the
games do not show very much In
either varsity team's favor. The play
ing of the two b£g teams has been of
-_ t. high order all the season, and they
" have both shown ability to smother
the best attacking tactics that the Aus
tralians were able to show. The de
fense of both teams is splendid and
could not very well be Improved on.
Defense, however, will not win games,
and it is now a recognised fact that to
win the teams will have to resort to
open play. Both teams have splendid
attacking players in the back flela.
and everything indicates that the team
that can get away with this style of
play and outwit the smothering tactics
of the opposition is going to stand a
big chance to be on the long end
of the score Saturday.
No More State League

MODESTO, Nov. s.—At a meeting of

to play no more games this season, so

Varsity Students All Keyed Up
California and Stanford on Edge
Cardinal Squad Goes
Through Stunts
Before Throng
College spirit and enthusiasm are
about at fever heat at Palo Alto. The
Stanford students are crowding the
bleachers daily to see the final work
outs of the men on the Rugby squad.
Yesterday they turned out in droves,
and Coach George Presley put in some
strenuous work sending the men
through different forms of practice.
No hard work was indulged in by the
cardinal squad yesterday. The team
was instructed to practice kicking of
all descriptions, and this took up most
of the hour's work the men went
through. The forwards packed the
scrum once Or twice and the back field
was placed in position and cut through
an opposition composed of second var
sity men.
Noble was the only back field man
not out in uniform yesterday. His
place in the practice was taken by the
young Mountain View freshman, Urban,
who has shown up well in the last
few games. Benny Erb was in the
fullback position, and showed all his
usual sureness in fielding, catching and
punting. Gene Kern was In the center
of the three-quarter line, while Tho
burn was in the other wing place.
Rlsling and Harrigan were holding
down the five-eighth places and Cap
tain Louis Cass was behind the scrum.
This is the back field that has been
worked for some days past, and from
all appearances these will be the men
to face the music Saturday. Students
at Stanford are asking themselves all
sorts of questions as to whether this
lineup will be the final one, the con
sensus of opinion being that it will.
The forwards at Stanford are a big
set of men, though probably not quite
as heavy as the blue and gold forwards.
There is an abundance of material to
choose from at Stanford for the for
ward division, just as there is at Berke
ley. Like the back field, the men who
are thought to be the eight for the big
game have been worked together for
some considerable time, though a not
able absentee is Al Frank, the break
away. There is considerable mystery
surrounding the condition of the lad.
The general tone of student talk would
lead one to believe that Frank is so
badly injured that it is doubtful if he
can recover in time for the game to be
played a year hence. If he is in good
shape, the coaching committee is going
to have to pick between him and
Hall, Sanborn and Corbett were
worked in the front row of the packs
yesterday, with Smith and Schaupp in
the second row. Big Jack Partridge
has been moved from the second row
to the lock position in the rear rank,
and as breakaways with him were
Gard and Darsie.
Assistant Trainer Maloney is wearing
the smile of satisfaction. He states
that the different men are all in first
class shape and that on the day of the
game he expects them to be on edge
with that necessary element styled
"pep"—one of the strong factors of
every man on the team.
Varsity Men Hot After
Ticket Scalpers
Ticket scalpers for the big game next
Saturday have been plying their trade
flourishingly during the last week. The
question as to how the tickets got
into the hands of these exponents of
high finance has been sorely troubling
the graduate managers at both Stan
ford and California, but they are now
going after the scalpers in "step lively"
fashion. The headquarters of the larg
est nest of these parasites has been lo
cated, and today it is expected that
John Doe warrants will be served on
several of the men whose activities are
Tickets have been quoted as selling
for all sorts of prices from |5 to $15
apiece, and at one of the best known
fashionable hotels it has been rumored
that tickets in any quantity can be
supplied at the unifor rate of $25 for
each pasteboard.
Yesterday the graduate managers
.visited the bond and warrant clerk
and preferred charges against the
ticket manipulators. Chief Bond and
Warrant Clerk R. W. Barrett told the
managers that John Doe warrants
would be issued today. Donald and
Burbank, the managers at the univer
sities, gave out the following statement
to the papers yesterday:
"Charges have been preferred in the
bond and warrant clerk's office against
the big game ticket manipulators.
Chief Bond and Warrant Clerk R. W.
Barrett states that the selling of foot
ball tickets at any other place than the
office of the management is a misde
meanor. Active steps are being taken
to apprehend the scalpers and John
Doe warrants will be iesued today.

Annual Ax Rally at
Berkeley This
The University of California students
will hold the annual ax rally at 4
o'clock this afternoon, when Custodian
"William M. Forker '13 will turn over
to his successor the ax which was cap
tured years ago from Stanford students
at an intercollegiate football game.
The rally will begin with a gathering
of students at Harmon gymnasium
steps. Yell Leader Stanley Arnot will
take charge of the exercises, and the
men will march behind the cadet band
to the First National bank, where the
iax will be taken from the vaults. Then
the students will march to California
field and gather on the bleachers to hear
the story of its capture.
Superior Judges Everett J. Brown '98
j and William OH. Waste '91 are expected
to be on hand to relate the history of
(the ax. Then Forker will confer guara
■ ianship of the ax on his successor.
Students will be a bodyguard for the
custodian on the return to the bank, to
prevent the ax being recaptured by
■ Stanford, an event which each year is
carefully guarded against.
The final football rally will be held
j tomorrow night at Harmon gymnasium.
Coaches James Schaeffer and Cedrlc
Cerf, with Varsity Captain John Stroud
and the varsity players, will be guests
of the men on this occasion and will
j speak. Other speakers will be Presi

yell leader, will run the rally.
Friday night the sophomore class will
be on guard over the big "C" on Char
ter hill. That is the night, preceding
the game with Stanford, when the
cardinal rooters usually try to paint
the big concrete letter with their col
lege color. The sophomores are cus

of the college year, when they for

the freshman class, who become guar

[Specie/ Dispatch to The Call]
RENO, Nov. 6.—The University of
Nevada's Rugby team, which had met
defeat but once this season, went down
before the Australian "Waratah players
this afternoon .on Mackay field by a
score of 57 to 6. Nevada made one try
In the first half after a 60 yard dash
by Curtln, but Bringham failed to con
vert In the second half Knlffen made
another try for Nevada and Bringhara
again failed to convert.
In the first half the Australians scored
28 points. They won the toss, and with
the wind racing across the field at a
15 mile clip they booted the ball with
great effect. Despite its onesidedness,
it was a spectacular game, replete with
brilliant plays.
Nevada was completely at the mercy
of the Australians. All the tricks of
the game so successfully tried by the
visitors in other cities were employed,
and time and again the ball would be
tossed all along the line with a Wara
tah crossing the line for a try.
Nevada apparently excelled in drib
bling, but the Australians worked to
gether like parts of a well oiled ma
chine. Once they started down the field
with the ball they carried all before
them. One of the prettiest plays was
made when Prentice cut through for 30
yards, passing the ball to Meibush, who
Time and again conversion was found
impossible on account of the wind. In
the second half the wind died down and
Nevada lost this advantage, which their
stronger opponents enjoyed in the first
half. In the second half was a con
tinual round of passing the ball down
the line on the part of the visitors, who
scored repeatedly.
It was believed that the Australians
would be affected by the altitude, but it
did not hinder them In the least.
The teams lined up as follows:
Nevada. Position, t Australia

It Was All Mandofs
[Sptcial Dispatch to Thr Call]
CHICAGO, Nov. s.—Ed Smith, the Chi
cago sporting editor, who refereed the
fight between Mandot and Wolgast at
New Orleans last night, sent word to
his paper and friends here today that
had he been forced to give a decision he
would have handed it to Mandot.
"Wolgast was weakening rapidly,"
said Smith, "and Mandot was getting
stronger. At the end of the fourth
round Wolgast had a good lead, but he
had lost it by the ninth, and the last
two rounds were all Mandot.
"I should not like to have been forced
to take a champion's title from him In
a 10 round' bout, but had I been forced
to render a verdict Mandot would have
been my choice."
