    Indians Ready
For Season's
Toughest Tilt
Grants Pass Eleven Will
Be Foe Tonight In Last
Home Game On Schedule
Roseburg high school Coach
Cece Sherwood said last night
his squad of Indians are ready
today for their roughest game of
the season tonight's homecom
ing tilt with the Grants Pass
Both mentally and physically,
the Roseburg squad is up for
this one. This Is the last home
appearance for the Indians this
season and for 13 seniors on the
squad, tonight is the last time
they will play a game on Flnlay
field. Coach Sherwood said the
Injury plague which has bother
ed Roseburg all season seems
to have been licked, with all 27
players slated to suit up.
No word has come out of
Grants Pass, following their de
feat at the hands of a hot Kla
math Falls club last week. Prior
to that time, Grants Pass was
figured again as the team to beat
in the state.
With the chances that Grants
Pass will be suffering a mental
letdown this week, the Roseburg
squad hopes to get the Jump on
the invaders tonight. The Indians
will be out to score first then
stay ahead.
Score Tied Last Year
Prior to last Friday, the Cave
men had swept by all opposition
with comparative ease. But a
glance at their schedule reveals
that only two teams, Medford
and Klamath Falls, were of first
class caliber. Klamath demon
strated clearly that Grants Pass
can be beaten, and Roseburg
coaches have been hammering
away at that theme all week.
Any doubts that the underdog
Roseburg squad has more than
a chance against the heavier
Cavemen may be dispelled by
Jointing to last year's score. The
ndlans tied Grants Pass 19-19 in
a game the state champs were

Sutherlin Gridders To
Face Coquille Saturday
The Sutherlin high football
team will climax its first year
In 11-man competition tomorrow
by hosting Coquille in a non
loague game to be played at
Sutherlin, starting at 2 p.m.
Coquille is rated as one of the
weaker competitors In the strong
Oregon coast "A" league. The
Rod Devils were beaten, 14 0, by
Roseburg in the season opener,
and since then have had only in
diffeercnt success.
However, because of Suther
lin's Inexperience In regulation
football, Coquille will be favored
to win.

For those who don't know this

football tiff will be an
aerial battle.
Oregon's Coach Jim Aiken
gave final proof of that yester
day when he devoted his last

back Earl Stelle, pitching against

Golden Bears
Lcok Like Sure
Bowl Entrants
Cougars Rated Losers In
Saturday Game; Oregon
Favored Over Huskies
Everyone Is shooting at the Unl
versify of California and its un
interrupted drive toward the
Rose Bowl but this week the
Golden Bears should rack up
their eighth straight victory of
the season without undue exer
tion. An improving but still under
manned Washington State squad
takes a bite at the Bear hide at
Berkeley and interest in the Pa
cific Coast conference Bowl race
naturally rides with any game
Cal engages from here on out.
Of greater portent as far as a
tighter struggle goes, and carry
ing bright hues of roses, too, is
the conflict here between Stan
ford and the University of South
ern California.
Each has dropped one confer
ence game and both cling firmly
to hopes that brave California
may falter at least once in the
coming three-week drive down
the stretch, permitting one or the
other to slip .by and on to the
Pasadena date with the Big Ten
The Bruins of UCLA, which
last week Joined USG on the list
of California victims, hasn't for
saken all its dreams, either, but
they get another week to sleep.
They draw a bye this Saturday..
Oregon Favored
Oregon lost a 43-31 decision to
rapidly improving Iowa in the
mid-west last week, indicating
that Jim Aiken's Webfoots should
be favored over Washington at
Portland tomorrow and might
even give California a rough aft
ernoon one week hence.
Idaho invites trouble with Ore
gon State at Moscow, and Mon
tana should get past East Wash
ington college at Missoula.
Getting back to the leaders:
California, once Washington
State is out of the way, faces
double trouble without rest from
Oregon and traditionally tough
Stanford; Southern California's
last conference foe after Stan
ford is UCLA; Stanford gets a
breather from Idaho after USC
and just before entertaining Cal
ifornia, and UCLA encounters
threatening Washington and then
goes into ils cross town duel witii
the Trojans of USC.
California unquestionably dom
inates the Rose Bowl race. This
being a season of surprising up
sets all over the land, however,
it Is doubtful that conservative
Cal has reserved room space in
Pasadena for the holidays just
yet, 'i

Dusette And Weaver Will Top
Attractive Wrestling Bill At
Roseburg Armory Tomorrow
A coast champiomhip match between titlist' Buck Weaver
and challenger George Dusette will headline Saturday wrestling
show at the Roseburg armory Saturday, but three added at
tractions may also prove of considerable interest among Doug
las county grappling followers.
The Great Atlas, a
lormer t
"Mister America" and one of the
most conceited matmen in t'as
business, will make his local de
but against Karl Myers, rugged
Minnesota mat ruffian.
Atlas is a real muscle-man, a
weightlifter who believes he
should be on exhibition at a buck
a throw just to see his "beautiful
physique." He stands only five
feet, nine inches, but possesses
19-inch biceps and a 53-inch chest.
But regardless of his "cockiness,"
the 195-pound guy is a rugged
wrestler and his full-nelsons have
rendered many opponents help
less. He is not a villain, but is
almost certain to be extreme'v
unpopular with local fans. In
Myers, Atlas will find a formida
ble foe of the "Belcastro" type
who uses a flying body scissors
with unusual success. Myers has
only appeared here once before.
Jimmy Gonzales, the Spanish
Hawaiian, comes here with a fine
reputation, but will be appearing
in the Pacific Northwest for the
first time in his career. He meets
Pete Bartu, a rough-and-tough
Chicago grappler.
Major interest, however, is
based on the Weaver-Dusette bout
that has developed into a hot
rivalry of "grudge" proportions.
Weaver beat Dusette by trickery
in the coast light-heavyweight
tournament which he -won. And
the last meeting saw Weaver pro
tect his title by virtue of back
pedaling for the final minutes of
the match.
Increasing the time limit to an
other half hour, the French
Canadian is confident he can beat
