ClfJCACrO, Dec. 20. Two big
eastern football teams on the way
to California for holiday games
spent today here, departing to
night for the coast.
The Unviersity of West Virgin
ia squad, 28 in number, in charge
of Coach Spears, arrived on the
same train with Coach Hugo Ber
dek's Penn State team, which is
scheduled to play the University
of Southern California at, Pasa
dena on January 1. The West
Virginia eleven will battle Gon
zaga at San Diego on Christmas
Coach Spiers said the West Vir
ginians were in the best of shape
after the eastern season.
Coach Spears said there was a
difference in the tactics of the
three eastern schools, Pittsburgh,
West Virginia and Penn State,
which are to play on the coast.
Pittsburgh will play Stanford De
"We use a line shift and Pitts
burgh shifts only his backs,"
Spears said. "Then, there is a
difference in the way we go after
forward passes. The eastern
teams feel they are fairly well
fortified against anything the far
western elevens can spring, and,
of course, hope to emerge on tha
long end of the score."
The Penn State squad, com
posed of 22 players, travelled
west in a special car, which will
be dropped off at Williams. Ariz.,
Friday night. The party will
make a tour of the Grand Canyon
on Saturday, arriving in Pasadena
on Sunday atteroon to prepare for
the Southern Californians on New
The Mountaineers are used to
both frosty weather and to warm
and do not believe the heat of the
west will slow them up.
"It would probably be like our
early fall practice weather."
Coach Spears said. "The only
thing we dread is the long ride. I
am sorry we did not have an Op
portunity for a workout for the
day would have been ideal.
