Coach Bill Spaulding ot the
University of California at Los
Angeles gathered S3 of his grid
warriors around him for a. final
workout today and then hustled
them aboard a train for Portland
where they will meet Oregon's
football team Saturday.
- He had to check some of the
group from local hospitals to
complete the quota, what with
lnflnensa, bruises and sore mus
cles prevalent. He expects, how
ever, to have his full starting
team ready save for Lenny Berg-
dahl, Quarterback, who has been
out all season.
Before he left he named the
following for his starting lineup:
Bob McChesney, left end; Hough'
