Archie Hunt Nov 8 1913 - Teams Look Even With Clear Weather Predicted...
Teams Look Even With Clear Weather Predicted Cardinal Backs Offset Star U C Pack By ED KNEASS AFTER much preliminary work the Rugby teams of Stanford and California universities will get tduothcr on th lurf at TrIo Alto this afternoon In the annual football contest between the Cardinal and Blue snd Cold Month have been spent In gettlnf the ruggers into the best posslblo shape for todays game Gruelling training and hard practice games - live been gone through and at laet with alV awaiting for the referees - whistle tho thirty selected players will get In action tor the ollmax of the1 college football season ini this neck - of the woods Whethor the display will be comedy or drama Is uncertain but IV certainly will be specteoular with two highly - keyed fifteens - trained to the - minute struggling for supremacy the while cheered to a whisper by thousands of oolor - bedecked partisans As a - sporting event the teams should furnish a closely oontested and hard fought game Non - purtlKans after doso study conoede each side an even chance of victory and look for a fast and furious contest One of the hardest battles In the history of football hereabout Is expected With the rivals going In to play nach with n nghtlnK chance and each with a determination to play the style of gamo best suited to Its kind of team nothing less than a struxgle to the last ditch can ensue This even Chance proposition Is made Facts to Know About Contest Game Starts 230 Ends 4 P M with the Idea that conditions are nor ma that Is the flold dry That uncertain thing tho weather cant b doped but It certainly will make a difference If Jupiter Jluviua - dropa In for a call for rain wifl make the ball Impossible to handle by back 11 old men and necessitate a bottled up content California will then have a better chance of dictating the style of piny and will undoubtedly work forwards for all they are worOi a thing that the Blue and Gold players will probably attempt whether tho turf Is wet or dry Last nights weather prediction fair1 tonight and Saturday with four at night i light northwest wind would assure a dry field If the wind does not ohange The showing1 of Californias forwards whoi havo - delivered a fighting hard - played brand of Rughy haa given the Impression that the HerkeleyUoa have much the better argument in the iorun Thoy oerlatnly have shown moreibut they are playing against men who are capable of as much Htfiehy as they are but who have fulled to show as - much dash and scrap Kven in the ialn with Stanfords haik at a disadvantage the blue and kUI will havo to fight for all thoy got in tuo way of advantage in the forward division But wet weather will put the back fields - on a par whereas otherwise the cardinals should have an Hdvrntao with the back - field - material there is on the squad at Pain Alto California i has evidently planned a tlefenniM game in the back - field division roi I ha ion -

aldod acoro CONDITIONS ON DRY FIELD Dry conditions should allow Stanford to get her fast and clever back - fielders Into action with deadly results If Stanford succeeds In opening up tho gamo when that Inevitable break cimes there will be something for the cardinal rooters to shout about when the Pale Alto bocks get started If California Is able to keep the cardinals from getting started the tale to tell will be different for with Htnntord fighting to open the game the Berkeloyites will have an onoortunitv to sway the tide their way using the lorwaraa and 4eart to - good advantage Peart Is easily the star of tlie California backfleld Ho Is a dangerous man on offenso and a hard taokler as well as the possessor of a long and sure boot Ho Is figured to bo a world of strength and has been put at outside five whore he will undoubtedly havo a chance id show all there Is In him There la still a chance of Peart going in us full - back but only It seems in the most stringent case for the skipper Is badly noeded to steady the blue and gold backfleld It may seem odd lo single Peart out among the flfienn men nsmod to reprosent the IWkHev IulvtTslty but he Is l a 1 ihss ny himself In the California backfleld PKAKT AGAINST FH KM UMAX Peart Is to play against a freshman Ijachmund a whirlwind natural Tlug - ger none too strong on defense in high - class - bmpanv but playing as he Is between the all - star Austin and Danny Carroll a player of international repute Stanford backers urs not wowing as to the efteotivenesa - of their back field Reeves and Urban the wings are causing no worry either for that matter while at full Andrews seems safe after a hard fight to make the fifteen outside of Poart California has nothing in brag on In the bark field so far ran brilliant aggressiveness Is con cerned Judging from the seasons showing Archie Hunt Is a fast man and a good tackier GlanelUi has - speed and some dodging ability but has shown - host In games against weaker teams lane Is - new Umber while Kreshmaw Skinner th l30i pounds of hspeed pinked for fullbaok has - to UVs through nm first mteraolleglate battle to prove his worth iliAibsn -

e - as ti i Is considered to have the betler of the scrum - argument because the Eerkelev forwards have shown more having had anj opportunity to - do so At that it will be an even battle among the forwards The respective Hooking ability is unknown Stanford lias - the - better aggressive - breakaways though the California breaks should protect their halfback as well If not better than the cardinals There is no - reason to believe that either has the advantage l the looss - play COMPAKISON OF FOH - VVARO California should have the balance of the dribbling as well as the passing among tho forwards on the reasons showing The line - out work cant be doped Tho following through should be In Stanfords favor as a whole although one or two of the California scrum are as fast as any oh the field The Borkeleyltes are better trained It seems to hard rugged virile play H Is thli that cant be overlooked In siting up the two forward divisions There is certainly fight among the cardinals hut - when It Is brought out their playing ability might suffer Anyway today will tell the tale and oolloge Rugby dope will1 go on the shelf for another year It has Heen two years now since roal football has been put up by California and Stanford Iwt seasons mudfest Is hardly counted especially as It ended in a tie One thing Is oortaln about todays battle ono thing other than a win lose or draw and that Is a olean game with plenty of action inasmuch as Billy Hill the Australian expert will be the man behind the whistle Hills knowedge of the game as welt an his clean -
