Corbus not only used his right
foot. to -good advantage, but did
a world of damage with his hands,
playing a sensational defensive
game against the bard charging

left for the Trojans to do some
thing about their record and they
could not do it.
Stanford was the better team
the last three periods of the game.
' ' There iwas not much to choose
between the first downs, ten for
the winners, to eight for the los
ers, but the Indians throughout'
the closing stages of the game
seemed very definitely going piace8

third period and much of the lat

much on their own account. '
Stanford completed six passes
out of seven attempts and the
touchdown came after an over
head attack had advanced the ball
to the shadow of the goal posts.
Southern California also complet
ed six passes in ten attempts for
a trifle more yardage than that
registered by the victors, but the
coordination was not so good.
The game was witnessed by a
distinguished crowd including

After the final gun sounded. In
a game marked with thrills from
beginning to end, the Parrish Ti
gers emerged victors to the tune
of 39 to 12 in their annual Ar
mistice day game with Leslie. For
little Pete Hoffoft. the victory was
a climax to two years of hard
knocks and grinding work on the
gridiron. From the opening kfck
oft to the end of the game there
was little doubt of the outcome.
Parrish kicked off to Leslie, and
the south-enders failing to gain,

Leslie received again and after
three attempts by Chapman to

California Turns to Crush
Washington 33
ley, Cal., Not. 11. (P) Out of the
depths of earlier, defeats and dis
appointments rose a crashing,
smashing California Golden Bear
eleven today to batter University
of Washington Huskies to a 33-0
defeat, the most humiliating beat
ing a purple and gold team has
suffered in many seasons.
While 35,000 fans watched the
one-sided clash with mingled emo
tions. the fighting Bears reached
their greatest heights with a drive
and dash that utterly demoralized
the Husky offense; make "breaks''
after breaks" and snatched at
every opportunity to roll , over
touchdowns In every period.
The most convincing rout of a
Washington team by California
since the Bears piled up a 45-7
victory In 1922, saw Coach Bill
Ingram's warriors smash into the
Huskies with furious charges that
completely shattered the morale of
the northern squad.
From the time they blocked a
kick and recovered the ball be
hind the Husky goal for the first
touchdown the Bears were In com
plete command.

this failure-to bold at crucial mo
ments caused fumbles that paved
the way tor two more California
touchdowns, one in the second and
the other in the third period.
The Bears made it a complete
debacle in the last period when
two more touchdowns resulted
from wildly thrown Washington
passes that were snatched from
the air by California players.
For the first time since the two
high schools have been playing
football Dallas won over Indepen
dence today. The score was C to 0.
A crowd of 1500 people attended
the game. Dallas made its score in
the first two minutes of play. In
dependence kicked off and Dallas
returned the ball to their 30-yard
line. A quick pass from McMillan
to Pleasant made first down. In
dependence was penalized 15
yards for unnecessary roughness
Line plunges brought the ball to
the Independence four-yard line
and McMillan went over for a
touchdown. In the try for point
the kick was knocked down.
The remainder of the game was
devoid of sensational playing un
til the end when Barclay made
a pass of 40 yards from, behind
the Independence goal line but
the receiver was downed in his
tracks as the time was called for
the end of the game. The play see
sawed during the last three quar
ters with neither team securing
much advantage. Dallas made
more first downs than Independ-
dence but the latter excelled In
punting. Bashor wag referee.

Buckeyes Flatten
Pennsylvania, 20-7
(Jp) The scarlet steam-roller of
Ohio State rumbled in from the
Big Ten today, neatly flattened
Pennsylvania for three periods as
all had expected, and then limped
and wheezed from the field at the
end of a fourth period uprising
that for 20 minutes had monkey
wrenches bouncing all around in
the conference machinery.
The . Buckeyes finally got the
powerhouse back into gear and
rolled away with a 20-to-J victory,
but only after the flattened Qua
kers rose to score one touchdown,
penetrate within 10 yards of an
other, and had thawed out a froz

plained frequently la the past
that there was not enough for
mal competition in which all
could take part. Tournament
have been none too frequent
and the ao-so players usually
were eliminated early despite
the flight arrangement design
ed to keep more of them play
ing. The inter-city contests
provide room for only a com-
parntive few, and the cost of
ent4t-talning visiting players is
an item.
And so the Industrial league
contests starting officially today
ought to fill a long-felt need.
They of course will be successful
only if the turnout is good. Teams
playing today, though some . of
the players have already turned
in scores, are Insurance-Realty,
State Office Building, Business
Men and Gasoline League all play
ing against each other; Engineers,
Utilities, Industrial and Educational-Legal
also all playing
against each other.
Thts Is the week In which
both Salem high and Willam
ette football' teams play at
home; the only one of the sea
son. We believe that well-co-
ordinated schedule has benefit
ted both of them in the matter
!of fWCe' leipts.'ire'tnow' that
the high school's nse of .Sweet
land field for night games has
been a good thins; for the school
athletic fund which has been ra
ther skinny for the past several
years. Night games plus a
winning, colorful team have
brought out attendance that
wasn't thought of two years
ago. ,
The conflict for next weekend
was a real one up to late this
week which doesn't mean, of
course that the high school and
university athletic departments
had any misunderstanding. Both
games were originally scheduled
fr Friday night. Willamette
wanted to change to Saturday
night but Albany college demur
red because a number of its play
ers work in the stores, had tak
en several Saturday nights off to
play other games and figured they
couldn't afford to do it again.
So up to late this week Salem
high was holding open the
question of whether it rather
than Willamette would change
to Saturday.
That's the grid menu for this
week; Willamette vs. Albany col
lege. Salem high vs. Tillamook
Quite a bill of fare, at that. Al
bany hasn't won a conference
game but has made every oppon
ent get In and dig. Any team that
has scored two touchdowns on the
Pirates has gotten one of them -on
a break. The scores are:
Puget Sound 18. Albany 0.
Columbia 13, Albany 0.
Pac. Lutheran 6, Albany 6.
Pacific 7, Albany 0.
Linfield 15, Albany 0.
Colombia, you will note, de
feated the Pirates by the same
score that it won over the Bear-
i cats. Xatnrally that doesn t
move Albany out of the "under
dog" position bnt it does indi
cate that Willamette; will have
to get In and hustle.
Regardless of the outcome, the
fans here will be interested in see
ing the team that "Red" Rupert
has placed in the field on his re
turn to coaching after many years
in which he confined his official
connection with sports to baseball
"Red" coached, officially and un
officially, several high school
teams since his own palmy days as
an Albany college and Multnomah
club gridder, but he Is definitely
back in the swim now. He has a
big, scrappy bunch of boys who
stop running plays and call it fun,
but many of them are inexper
ienced and they have failed to
guard against bad breaks. In sev
eral games they have courted and
achieved disaster by forward pass
ing deep in their own territory.

had a tie with Pacific except for
