PASADKXA. Cal., Dec. 30. The
Ohio State eleven is in condition to
"go 60 minutes at top speed" New
Year's day in its game with Univer
sity of California, Dr. John Wilce,
head coach, declared tonight. Coach
Smith of California contented him
eelf with saying his men were "fit."
- Both teams had the lightest kind

of tomorrow, the coaches said.
Frank W'illaman, Ohio fullback,
who has had a troublesome knee, will
be in good shape for the game. Dr.
Wilce declared. Blair, Ohio halfback,
and Cott, substitute, have caused
some apprehension by turning their
ankles, but Blair. it was declared.

ANOTHER 36 hours and we'll
know whether Ohio State is the
real unsinkable ship in football,
or whether the University of Cali
fornia has at last evolved the long
sought non-refillable bottle. In the
meantime, gents, this Is positively
the last call to step up and air your
opinions about the great Pasadena
game before it's played. '
If you want precedent to base your
views upon, there's certainly prece
dent enotigh for any kind of result
you want. For instance, California
this last season rolled up 4S2 points
against opposing football elevens to
only li points scored against her.
That's precedent enough on which to
bet your last kopeck that California
plows up the field with touchdown
against Ohio State.
But on the other hand, Ohio State
is some little precedentrsetter on her
own hook. She won all five of her
Big Ten conference football games
last season and took the conference
championship for the second season
in a row. Won four of her five games

California Eacapea Injury,
The Californians came through the
practice period without injury.
Football experts continue to ex
press the opinion the result of the
clash between the westerners and
middle westerners will depend upon
the ability of the Bears t ostop Pete
Stinchcomb, all-American halfback.
At the same time, they declare, unless
the Buckeye line can hold its own
.with the California wall, Stinchcomb
will not "get loose" with the regular
ity he has displayed in the east.
The seating capacity of Tourna
ment field has been increased to
42,000, while the demand for seats,
according to Tournament of Koses
association officials, has reached
three times that figure.
Efforts for Speed Made,
Every effort is being made to speed
up the handling of the crowd, which
bids fair to be the largest ever at
tending a football game in southern
California. Precautions are being
taken against accident and against
ticket scalping.
Just before the game starts, it is
announced, 2500 tickets will be put
on sale at the gate with orders that
only one shall go to a person.
Only One Team Declared Equal of
Ohio State Squad.
COLUMBUS, O., Dec. 30. Aerial
attack, or the forward passing style
of play, has been developed to a
greater stage of perefection by Ohio
State university's football eleven
than by any team in the country,
according to football experts, and it
is on this form of offensive that the
Buckeyes will depend for victory
when they face the University of Cal
ifornia team at the Tournament of
Koses at Pasadena, Cal., New Year's
Only one team in the middle west
Notre Dame could be considered as
even a rival of Ohio State in forward
pass plays and most football experts
" consider the Ohio passes superior to
even those of,the late George Gipp,
Is'otre Dame's star hurler. primarily
because Ohio State is adept at every
type of pass whether running,
standing, double, triple or of the
"screen" type.
Two men form the nucleus of Ohio
State's aerial attack Hoge Work
man, 20 years old quarterback who
last fall played his first season on
the team, and "Pete" Stinchcomb, who
made the mythical all-American team.
Workman is the most accurate
passer seen in the middlewest since
the overhead attack was made legal.
He throws from any position and
any distance and nearly always gets
the ball within reaching distance of
the receiving player, whether that
man be running or standing still.
Stinchcomb's greatest work is in
receiving passes. He is the fastest
man on the ' team and gets many
yards down the field before Work
man is ready to throw. Stinchcomb
takes the ball while traveling at full
speed and if Workman's pass does
happen to be a little wide, Stinch
comb generally is able to get to it
before it touches the ground. Once
he has the ball the little halfback
has better than an even chance for
a long run, for his dodging, twisting
and side-stepping make him an al
most impossible man to stop.
Nearly all of the Ohio passes are
played from a punt ' formation, but
the team runs so many other plays
from this formation that it is im
possible for the opponents to "lay'
for the passes. Line bucks, end runs
and off-tackle dashes all may be
started from a kicking arrangement.
Probably the most successful play
of the Ohio State team is the run
ning pass, for in this play it is
optional with the passer to buck
through the line, circle end or pass
the ball. Workman, in th kicker's
position, receives the ball and with
his backfield as interference starts
around end. Stinchcomb, through his
jrreat speed easily outdistances the
interference and gets far ahead.
Then, with Stinchcomb, the other
two backs, and Workman, who trails
behind, cutting a wide circle around
end, the play is in full swing and it
depends on the immediate circum
stances whether it is a run or a pass.
If the chances are good for a gain.
Workman continues with the ball. If
he is about to be tackled, the quarter
back leaps high in the air throws to
Stinchcomb while still on the run, the
latter receiving without stopping, or
else turns completely around and
hurls to the other end. It is the most
beautiful play in football and never
fails to bring cheers even from the
opposition grandstand when success
east vs. west intersectional football
games. Some interesting facts are
tc be gleaned from the survey.
Roughly, these intersectional foot
ball games may be divided into two
parts one those of ancient, the other
of modern times. The latter date
only from 1915, when Syracuse uni
versity invaded the far west and
tcok home two scalps to the home
wigwam, those of Oregon Agricul
tural college, defeated 28 to 0, and
Occidental college of California, 3o
to 0. Syracuse was a regular bear
cat for games on that trip. En route
U Portland she took on the Univer
sity of Montana, which gave the New
Yorkers a great surprise by holding
them to a 6-to-6 tie score.
Since that epoch-setting- tour and
including it, there have been ten east
vs. west games, with the east hold
ing the edge by five victories to four
for the west, and one drawn battle.
But including all east vs. west games.
those of the ancient as well as the
modern period, the east decidedly has
th( honors to date with eight victo
ries to five in 13 games. The other
was that 6-to-6 Montana-Syracuse tie.
Back in the early '90s, Walter
Camp, the Yale star, who picks the
official ail-American teams today,
came west on a football missionary
ing trip and became coach at Stan
ford university. He induced Chicago
university to make the long tour
across the Rockies and Sierras to
play his husky Cardinal eleven.
Two games were played between
the two, one in northern and the other
in southern California. Chicago took
the first and Stanford the second.
This made honors even on the first
series of intersectional clashes.
It. was a good many years before
another eastern team would venture
Into the uncharted far west. Then
the Carlisle Indians, at that time in
the heyday of their football great-
2-ess, journeyed to the setting sun
and played the University of Cali
fornia, which had an eleven rating
comparatively as high in football as
the team that represents the Bears
From all accounts it was a terrific
gridiron battle. The Redskins finally
won, but only by a score of 2 to 0.
They made their two joints on a
safety when Metoxen broke through
the California line, grabbed Pete Kas
burg, who was carrying the ball on
a play in front of his own goal line,
and literally threw him across the
line for the safety.
The third eastern invasion of the
west was in 1902, when Hurry-Up
Yost of Michigan brought his great
team to the coast to play Stanford
Among other stars on the Michigan
eleven were Willie Heston. Willi
and his able co-workers simply made
mince-meat of the Cardinals. The sun
went down that gory day on a 49-to-0
victory for Michigan, the highest and
most lop-sided score ever piled up in
an east vs. west gridiron battle.

Here for New Year's Bout.
That ends what we have termed
the ancient history period of these
intersectional clashes. Ensued a long
hiatus. Not until 13 years later, in
1915, when Syracuse journeyed to the
Pacific playing Montana to a 6-to-6
tie and defeating the Oregon Aggies
2S to 0 and Occidental college 3a to 0,
did football relations resume between
the sections and the modern era begin.
Up to this time there had been lit
tle to it but the east. Stanford's one
victory against Chicago and the Mon
tana tie game with Syracuse were the
only blood for the far west. But
since that time the west has perked
up very decidedly and more than held
its own.
Washington- State instituted
series of brilliant victories lor tne
west when the great eleven coached
by Lone Star De-itz opened the Pasa
dena classics by defeating Brown uni
versity 14 to 0 on New Year's day,
1916. The very next New Years day
University of Oregon triumphed at
Pasadena by the same score, 14 to 0,
over University of Pennsylvania.
These two games put the vest on the
map in football. But it remained for
Oregon's heroic loss to Harvard last
New Year s day, 7 to 6, ruiy to
arouse the east to the class of far-
western football. But, in the mean
time, the Oregon Aggies had made a
successful trip to the middle west in
1915, on which, by a score of 20 to u,
they wined up the Michigan Aggies
after the latter had defeated the Uni
versity of Michigan by identically the
same score. Dr. E. J. Stewart was
coaching the Oregon Aggies that sea

something to do with it, while coach

west. Washington State college went
to Lincoln, Neb., and defeated the
University of Nebraska on Thanks

appearance here - Wednesday after
noon. In the past Farmer always did
his conditioning in Tacoma, making
it a point to arrive here the day of
the match. He has changed his tac
tics and will do his training on the
ground this time.
Farmer, who is fast getting into
the veteran class, has fought a num
ber of times in this region and only
on two occasions did he put up an
unsatisfactory fight. One of those
times was against Al Sommers at the
old Rose City club years ago, and the
other against Tiny Herman at the ar
mory last year. For these he is for
given. The socking that he handed
Hugh Walker and his two excellent
fights against Boy McCormick are remembered.
Bunker is young and ambitious. He
is confident of his ability to cope
with his much more experienced and
formidable opponent, which is half
the battle. Bunker displayed more
than -'ordinary ability for a young
heavyweight against Ole Anderson

Joe Gorman and Al Grunan will

The sudden termination of their re

Matchmaker Evans rematched the
two popular boxers.
Whether Gorman hit Grunan low
or not in the sixth round of their
first clash js a matter of debate. The
writer was not "on" the punch that
ended the bout, but did see Gorman
hit Grunan below the belt on at least
four occasions up to the sixth round.
Grunan may not have been hurt with
any of these punches, but regardless
of that was being fouled. Gorman
was not warned once by the referee.
The barrage which sunk Grunan was
not a blow, it was two blows. One
was probably without a doubt a fair
punch, and the other in the groin.
Which one took the wind out of Gru

edged out the Bachelors, 14 to 10.
Fast and clean play marked the
first game, which was played on tho
Washington high school floor. The
Tech boys started off with a rush,
netting two field baskets before the
contest had been under way but a
few minutes. In the-early stages of
the contest it looked as if the Arleta
clubmen would be snowed under.
Consistent passing and team work

them in the lead, and after the first
ten minutes of play they were never

scorers, both being fast and excellent
shots. Manager Brooks of Arleta
used two sets of forwards, starting

with thrills. The game was clean and

met on the local floor the latter part
of next month.

they meet a team representing tho
