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 WILLIAM UNMACK 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 .♦xperience. born of a life time's study _\ ltd playing of the game. Lane, who Will play center for California, is a good lad, but is not in the class with Carrol. I'rban for Stanford has shown an aptitude for dodging and running that promises to puzzle the California team, hut the blue and sold man as a defensive player is there, and this will probably have considerable weight on the question of Urban's Reevea, the other Stanford wing, is c dangerous man .: he gets away in the loose, and so is Hunt of Califor- 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 enced rugger is bound to influence the 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 and Brant. 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. "GO GET'EM" STANFORD SLOGAN 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 :Saturday. 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 back. Please Donate a Little Green Sod RESIDENTS of Alameda county will be asked to donate to the students of the University of California a square yard of their lawn, if a plan suggested to the execu tive committee on the campus is approved. The turf, carried to the university by automo biles and wagons, with student drivers, will be used to cover California field with grass. Frank Gard (left) and Bill Darsie, two of Stanford's shining lights, who look like sure starters in the big game against California on Saturday afternoon. CALIFORNIA LOOMS UP STRONG Coach Schaeffer announced the blue and gold varsity team late last night. The 15 men to take the field constitute 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. | ditions on the day of the game. The Feart-Hazeltine combination at j five-eighths back is a splendid one and the two men have been showing EXPERTS UNABLE TO AGREE ON MERITS OF THE BIG GAME STARS Schaffer Names His Fighting Men How the California team will line np agralnst Stanford!

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. LICK GAINS WIN OVER MISSION 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 period. The teams lined up as follows: i.i< w -Forward*, Bootes, Feldcaiap, I'engaii, Gustard. C. .Johnston. S« ni zcnN k, W. Smith, W. Johnson; hacks, F.

MARYS 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 Rugby. 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 to advantage. 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 26 points. HAROLD S«*«rttlah Rite Hall BAUER T^? HT Maanter Pianist Next Hat. Aft.
