Spaulding Drives Bruins
Through Final Drill Before
Webfoot Contest Tomorrow
V. C. L. A. Couch Uncongenial as Duck Game

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19.- (Exclusive to the Emerald.)—Coach
Bill Spaulding closed up his Westwood grid shop late tonight, after
driving his Bruins through one of the stiffest practices they have
undergone this season.
It was the last workout for the Bruins before they meet Oregon
U. in the Olympic stadium Saturday, and Spaulding made sure that
his men knew thoroughly everything that he had taught them. The
head coach drove his first string unmercifully, now on offense, then
on defense. He fairly roared at little Johnny Fletcher, 155-pound
quarterback, who must take the*
place oi Field General Bergdahl on
Saturday. Bergdahl is out for the
rest of the sea
son, and it is
hitherto a second
string man, that
Spaulding is bas
ing the Bruins’
hopes for victory.
The rest came
in for their share
of instr uction
from the for-once ungenial head
coach. Spaulding wants to win
that Oregon game Saturday more
than anything else. Ever since
1929, his Bruins have managed to
win one conference game, and
Oregon is their only chance this
season. Spaulding also wishes to
retaliate for that 7-0 Oregon vic
tory last season.
Lineup Not Given Out
While Spaulding will usually di
vulge his starting lineup at the
conclusion of final practice, he
would not do so tonight. He says
nobody is sure of their position,
and reserves the right to make
changes right up until game time.
However, on the basis of the way
the Bruins have started in past
games, the following team should
start for U. C. L. A.:
Left end—Dick Mulhaupt.
Left tackle—Lloyd McMillan.
Left guard—Fred Haslam.
Right guard—Gordon Jones.
Right tackle—“Fat” Norfleet.
Right end—Lenny Wellendorf.
Left halfback—Joe Keeble.
Right halfback—Bobby Decker.
Fullback—Captain Norman Dun
Duncan May Not Start
There is a possibility that Dun- j
can may not start. The Bruin .
pilot sustained a deep gash over
his eye in the St. Mary’s game, 1
and Spaulding is reluctant to start !

jury, and Spaulding does not wist
to risk that. In case Duncan doe;

Hodge Tells Story of Buried
Fossil Forest Upon Mt. Hood
Geology Professor W riting
Report on Study of
A fossil forest of splintered,
twisted, battered and scarred trees
lies buried beneath a smooth slope
of glacio-fluvial material on the
northwesterly side of Mount Hood.
This buried mass of timber prom
ises to throw light on the life of
the distant past and furnish valu
able data of great importance to
mankind through an extensive
study being made by Dr. Edwin T.
Hodge, professor of geology at the
University of Oregon.
Discovery of the buried forest
was made early in July, 1926, by
Judge Fred W. Stadter of Port
land, for whom it has been named.
Judge Stadter communicated with
Dr. Hodge, who has compiled a
report after conducting a compre
hensive program of research in the
Mount Hood area.
The ancient forest lies entombed
on the south side of Illumination
Rock, which was part of the last
crater of Mount Hood. During or
shortly after the time of activity
of this volcano, the trees grew on
the slopes of the towering Mount
Hood at an elevation of about 7000
feet, obtaining their nourishment
from the soft volcanic debris on
The geographical conditions at
this time were such that the trees
were able to grow at a higher ele
vation than at present. They re
ceived their warmth and moisture
from steam ejected by a slightly
active mountain, which produced
many fog clouds and occasionally
In his report, Dr. Hodge wrote:
“When vulcanism ceased, the
warm, moist blankets of fog dis
appeared and the warm rains
ceased. After that the usual win

Hood produced showfields which
were too large to melt during the
summers. Hence, annual residues
of snow accumulated and in time
were compacted and transformed
] “The glacier grew headward and
moved down the mountainside.
Growing headward, the Zig Zag
and White Water glaciers cut into
the sides of the crater, cut
through the crater wall and into
the crater pit, where now they are
still at work tearing down the
north and east walls—that is, the;
top of Mount Hood.
“The downward movement of
Zig Zag glacier,” continued Dr.
Hodge’s report, “advanced upon
the helpless forest. The high mass
of ice moved against, froze around,
and then buried within itself the
trees of the former rain-forest.
The icebound trees were twisted
and wrenched in the ice which
moved foot by foot down the
mountainside. The boulders and
other debris which the Zig Zag
glacier had picked up on its march
were used to further batter and
gouge the trees. Some 30 to 40
feet of glacial till entombs the for

was laid not gently on the man
gled trees, but roughly and as an
“Evidently the trees were killed,
bruised and overridden and for a
long time lay buried beneath the
ice. They were not buried where
they stood and died, but were
dragged a long distance, perhaps
several thousand feet, down the
mountainside. This is proved by
the absence of soil on the lava
on which the trees lie and by their
mutilated condition when ex
Dr. Hodge hopes to determine
the exact age of the primal forest
through a series of studies. His
great hope is that he will find
some venerable tree which is still
living, or even the body of one
that has long since fallen, but
started growing soon after the re
treat of Zig Zag glacier. By com
paring the rings of this tree with
those of some of the living trees,
Dr. Hodge would know exactly
when the Zig Zag glacier began
“It is hoped that we shall find
an ancient tree whose rings cor
respond with the outermost ring of
the Stadter buried forest. If such
be found, we shall know exactly
how long ago the forest lived. I
venture the guess that its age will
be numbered in thousands of years.
The fact that the wood of the fos
sil forest is not decayed does not
prove that it might not be 5000
years old," said the etugeologist
Student To Speak of Life
In Australian Metropolis
Douglas Andrews, sophomore in
biology, a former resident of Mel
bourne, Australia, will speak on his
observations and experiences in
that metropolis, at a supper to bo
given at 5 o’clock at the Interna

Andrews’ father is connectedJ
with a wool industry concern in
Melbourne and is living there at
present. Andrews himself thinks
of Melbourne as his home and goes
there every summer. Although
born in this country, he had ac
