Baseball Scouts Are Hot After Chapman BERKELEY, Calif.-Sam Chapman, California's (treat halfback who is expected to make life miserable for Alabama in the Rose Bowl name, is considered even a better baseball player than football star.

Alabama to Get $110,000 for Fifth Pasadena Trip to Play in Bowl Tilt Crimson Tide's Success This Season Is the Result of , Teamwork, Balance, Coordination, and Spirit, Says Coach Frank Thomas By IfAKRV GRAYSON Sports Editor, JVEA Service After acting as though it preferred to play Amherst- or Johns Hopkins, California winds up with a reprcsen- tivc and worthy opponent in the Rose Bowl. January 1. The current and young Alabama varsity may not be the equal of two or throe of sit predecessors which appeared at Piisadcna, but It's a determined and well-drilled team, and the Tuscnloosa tribe's nickname. Red Elephants, always wax a misnomer. Alabama was California's second choice, but what institution in need if funds wouldn't want $110,000, which should'be each club's share with lht> top tariff jacked up to $5.507 ; California handled Ihe situation* all right once it settled down to inviting, but the pro-bid talk on the golden slope did the football department- of. the Tournament of Roses no good. While the Pittsburgh players were fed up. the stalement by California officials thai they'd like their opponents to wear the cloaks of appropriate scholarship rating, undoubtedly had some tearing on the Panthers' refusal to.make the trip to the coast. Il was reported thai President Robert Sprout of California attempted to coax Dartmouth into making the junket. To be sure, there always is Fordham, but when Pittsburgh rejects a highly remunerative pipkin appointment, Grade A bowlers arc becoming scarce. California's demanding some loam- ing in the other corner was commendable, but n school about to drag down 5110,000 for participating in a eommor* cial venture miles from its camps, shouldn't be too choosy. It can't ex* peel to collect that kind of kale on a strictly amateur basis. It is Alabama's fifth trip to the Arroyo .Seeo, and Ihe Crimson Tide has yet to be repelled, Under Wallace Wade, Alabama repulsed Washington in a throller, 20-19, January 1, 1926. It tied Stanford; 7-7, one year Inter, nnd Wade's finest job at Tuscaloosa crushed Washington Slule, 24^0, January 1, 1931. Frank Thomas was in charge ot the Alabama squad that passed its way to victory over Stanford, 29-13, three years ago. After watching erudite Alabama ramble through the 19117 season of upsets without a setback, southern ob- sprvcrs arc nl n loss to figure out just where the strength of the precise, nt'ber-giv<!-up array lies. Couch Thomas believes the fourfold ] mi.swer to this year's success is learn- j work, balance, coordination and spirit, j Of cour.se there's Joe Kilgrow, whose I play in Ihe backfield all year has been unwavering, but Kilgrow isn't the broken-field broakayay artist nor the punter that Dixie IIowcll was. Tut Warren and T<-x Shoemaker are consistent ends who have had a great dc-.d to do with the success of the Tide, but neither is in the class with Don lint-son as a deceptive pass-snugger, Kilgrow, 17(i-pound senior, is the tram's mainspring. Ho played. CO minutes in the tough Tulane. Georgia Tech and Vonderhilt battles, never tiring in his plugging, plunging stylo. Kilgrow tails signals from left halfback, floes tho pasting and much of the running. Shoring the ball-lugging chores are Charley Holm, strapping 191-pound fullback and younger brother of Tony Holm, All-America fullback at Alabama in 1929. George Zivich, 17B- pou.nd East Chicago, Ind., youth, doe.s the punting, and his blocking, unbeknownst to most of those who watclt Ihe man with the ball, is one of Ihe reasons the wheels go round. Viv Bradford, quarterback, is also a fine blocker. In the line, Capt. Leroy Monsky, 198-pound guard, and Jim Ryba, 190- pouud tackle, ate. tho big berthas. Monsky ant! Low Bostick, a 193-pound-, or, niiin the guards, and are two of the fastest, deadliest btockers 'Bama has ever had. Ryba is poison on tackle. At the tackle post opposite Ryba is Walter Merrill, staunch 220-pound fophomore who looks like a great player for two years to come. He is rawboned and rugged. Another soph, Carey Cox, handles first siring center after having beaten out an upper- Slirlne Is Olympic Site TpKYO-(/P)-The Meiji Shrine supervising committee has given permission for tho Outer.

One Catching Record NEWARK —0?)— Willard Horsch- berger may not be the best baseball catcher but he's done something no other receiver did. He played on both coasts within 48 hours. Ho caughl a game in Newark on Sunday and one class man in mid-season. Only Ryba, Kilgrow, and Monsky of the firsl eleven are seniors. Thomas' second learn is sparked by Soph Herky Moseley, who runs, passes and punts like Howell. The second- stringers are far more spectacular lhan Ihc regulars. There is litlle losl when replacements are sent in. Haywarcl Sanford won the Vandei*- bill battle with it fourth-period field goal. Thomas is a resourceful coach, and has Ihe maleritil with which to find the-way at Pasadena.
