Lighter and Less Powerful
California Team Whips
By RUSSELL. J. JTCWLAVD
Associated Press Sports Writer
MEMORIAL. STADIUM, BER
KELEY. Cal.. Oct. 13 (AP)
Outplayed for most of the first
half and on the short end of gains
from scrimmage throughout, Cal
ifornia's Bears nevertheless play
ed heada-up football today to
snatch a stunning 13-3 victory
from the heavier and more power
ful Washington state eleven.
An aleTt California team was on
the field. It made up for the
weight and power superiority of
the visitors whose crushing
strength was checked largely b
their own loose play.
Thirty thousand were In the
stands at the kick-off. The grid
iron spectacle unfolded thereaff-r
saw the northern Cougars pouno
their way down the field in the
first period. Within sight of
home, their halfback star dropped
back and sent a perfect place kick
sailing through the bars. It gave
W. S . C. a 3-0 lead and the open
ing quarter ended that way.
Coming back in the second, the
Bears perked up and began a
drive that brought them deep into
the enemy's teritory. A touch
down followed. Again in the
fourth California took advantage
of a break. It was a blocked kick
by Bancroft, tackle, who dropped
jn the' ball on the opposing 2-
yard line. Lorn, halfback, went
uer iwu mays iaier aiier a
yard run and Rice, halfback, con
verted the try for point.
Five times the Cougars had
kicked blocked. Several fumbles
added to the looseness of play.
Thus the northwesterners wen
beaten by their own blocked boots.
