STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Oct. 25. There will be llttlo difference In the Stanford lino that starts against U. 8. C. Saturday after noon and . the lino that started against that team just a year ago. wager win do in for DeQroot at center and Thomas will likely have Dole's former position at end. Otherwise, tho Cardinal for ward wall will bo the same. In fact it will be' altogether tha same M-'-thftrtllne used against tho Unl-vdrsity of Washington two weeks later when Dud DeGrott was out with & bad kneo and Thomas was Just beginning to make a good snowing at end. "Tiny" Thorn hill has had a year to work his will on this gang since then, and Judging by tho play so far this season, has not altogether made a mess of It. Of tho backfield that stanted against tho southerners a year ago. not ono man remains in the regular line-up. ' Campbell. Cleave- Jand, 'Murray, and Dennis got in xno game last year, but none or them started or played long. Bud Woodward ' played Quarter laat year, but wilrilkely play tho bench for the most part Saturday. If ho plays. It will be as a substitute halfback) Cuddeback ntarted at fullbackin last year's game, but ho will play the bench Saturday along with Woodward until ho is called upon to relieve Murray or' Cleaveland. If Stanford gets within place kick distance of the Tro jan goal posts, the -chances are that Cuddeback will be sent in to try his luck, for three points. And since Murray . is not in the best of shape anyway, Cuddeback may at any time be called on to replace him. KELLY TO RETURN. Jim Kelley who has been out of the game for almost two weeks as the result of a ruptured blood vessel Just above the knee, is back in his suit again this week. Al though his leg is still a little stiff as the result of swelling accom panying the rupture, he seems to be in fair shape. If he is able to get his usual speed by Saturday, Kerr is certain to use him in the latter part of the game when Nevers tires. Kelley is neither so experienced nor so fast as Nevers, but is the best man on the squad as a straight line-plunger. He has lost a little weight and weighs only 194 pounds now. Dick Lawson, Charlie Johnston, Guy Dennis. Bud Woodward, and all the . rest of . the injured and psuedo-crippled were out in suits last night, but were not allowed to take any' strenuous exercise. Of the four, Johnston is the most needed. Kerr believes that he will be able to start him, but in case tho big tackle cannot stand the pace, Fred Ludeke with his 207 pounds will take his place. Ludeke made an unusually good showing against Occidental last week and may be started anyhow as a pro tection to Johnsfon for future games. GOOD IN bUKlMMAUIi. The Cards scrimmaged with Swede" Righter's College of the Pacific eleven from San Jose last night and showed up even better than was expected. The Cards were for the greater part n the defensive at the request of Kerr who is less worried about rumbling today than he wao earlier in the week. For the short time the Redshirts did carry tne Dan there was tho ' usual snap " and precision of machine-like play that has characterized the Cards offensive since the first of the season. Kerr of course used only one or two of the plays he plans to work against the Trojans for tho very obvious reason mar. several. Los Angeles correspondents sat In tho stands and viewed the scrimmage with more tnan oroi nary , Interest. Today and tomorrow-tho doors are closed again to all except coacnes mm rniiRESPONDENIS ON JOB. Correspondents from several southern papers who have como to' the campus a week eariy io rt.ir n local information are con Btrierahlv surprised at tho general foellng. of optimism prevailing on tho Farm.

The Oakland boys will be able to enjoy a two-day lay-off before meeting the Stanford Fresh men Saturday at ftanford. Coach Daugherty has been putting his team through stiff work outs, and the lads are in good condition. showing a. vast- improvement over their former work. According to old man dope, the down town warriors have an even break with the Cardinal babes.' Berkeley high held the Stanford- les to a scoreless tie, and Oakland played Berkeley a J! all tie, therefore an interesting and close contest is looked for. Barring all accidents, which may occur, the locals should win or at least tie Coach Hunt's Frosh. ' - The Blue and White grldders have shown in their past performances that they have the talent and spirit, and are oneot--tft"e strongest contenders for the O. A. U title. Last year Tech was ihe stumb-. ling block for the Oaklandltes, wno lost the final game to the Broadway aggregation. Tech has an equally good team this year, and the city championship will possibly fall to Oakland or 'Technical. Coach Daugherty is slowly molding his I eleven into shape for the Oakland-Tech struggle on November 20, and by present conditions he will have a squad well able to represent the Twelfth street institution. , . - Attendance at Grid Games Encouraging If the early attendance at the football games can be taken as an indication of what is to cime. new records are likely to be estab lished. Of the five leading games last Saturday, the total attendance was over 200,000. The Harvard- Holy Cross game drew 50,000; the Michigan-Ohio State contest drew 45,000: th6 Penn-Colun bla game 38,000; tho Notre Dame-Princeton game 30,000; and the Syracuse- Pittsburgh game 25,00. Nearly 200 other games were played that same afternoon to capacity crowds. . 4 McTigue and Tunney Post Forfeit Money NEW YORK, Oct. 25. Mike McTigue and Gene Tunney yesterday posted weight and appearance forfeits for their 15-round match at Madison Square Garden December 10 for the world's light heavyweight title. Under the agreement both are to make the class limit. 175 pounds, at 2 p. m. the day of the bout. Both McTigue, whose title will be at stake, and Tunney, who holds the American light heavyweight crown. , are --preparing". to begin training. . Coach MacHgan on Way With Squad of 19 to Play Ari- v zona U Saturday. After putting his snuad through a gruelling final workout on their homo field yesterday afternoon Coach "Slip" Madlgan entrained nlmeteen St. Mary's footballers at 8 o'clock-Mast night for Loo Angeles where the Saints will workout today. Leaving early, In order to permit his men to hav-a workout-ln tho southern metropolis today and another upon arrival In Tucson to morrow, Madlgan showed great foresight. n. . V.. ar I . 1 , i mo tst. wary rieia jireHcnis most difficult problems, being rough and hard to navigate on. Tho Arizona field at Tucson Is reported to likewise bo a hard field, even harder In one sense of the word, in that it is a hard packed field. WORKOUT IX L. A. Tho light limbering up workout today in Los Angeles will serve to break tho monotony of a long, hurried train rldo and will freshen the men up In a gradual tapering off process, for after a hard game last Sunday with tho Olympic club, the Saints have been driven at breakneck pace tho first three days this week to get them In shape and to enable .Madlgan to make ' final decision in several positions anions' the substitutes. Tho first string personnel remains virtually tho same as that started against the Olympic club last Sunday. O'Rourke and Collins will hold down the regular end berths with Lawless as a sub- ' stitute. Captain Corrlgan , and Hunger- ford, tho big rangy lino star, will care for the tackle Jobs with Jackson and Tobin as utility men. Watson, a regular at guard, to gether with Knowles. who was shifted from center to guard last Sunday, will be started .with Mc-Vey and Packer as substitutes. Lorigan is the only center along. although in a pinch both Knowles andjMcVey, having had previous experience, could care for the position. CONXAX AT QUARTER. Conlan will be at auarter with Grant and Rooney as the halfbacks to start and Strader at fullback.' Farrell has won a Jol. as sub stitute halfback by steady Improvement all season, having developed Into a good defensive back. The last minute change was made In one substitute position when O'Grady was added to the list. Underbill, out of account of injuries, . was taken along but may not get Into action and King, who has not developed as rapidly as had been honed for, remained at home when O'Grady, shoved into halfback yes terday, ran wild throughout scrimmage and showed great possibilities. ,- The squad is due back In Oakland next Monday and chances are" more than even that if they maintain the same pace i displayed against the Olympic club last Sunday that they will return with Wildcat scalp on their belt. Teams Bidding For Napa High Title NAPA, Oct. 25. Coaches of the Napa high school football eleven look for one of the hardest bat tles of, the season when the purple and orange squad hook up with Petaluma high at that place Saturday. This game will be the last that the local aggregation will play away from home.
