Another entertainment of a sjm- nature, with every likelihood of the accompanying backsee, is In store November 25, when the Cougars ol Washington State move In on VII- lanova. The Cougars happen to be the football team that recently beat California, and California, strange as it may seem, actually beat SI. Mary's. Not only did the Cougars beat California, but lliey met what I some of the California people re- | cently referred to ns "the best professional team in the country," Southern California, and sent the afore.satd team home on the aforesaid team home on the short end of a 1 to 6 score. The small item of bcallng California and U. S. c was accomplished on successive Saturdays. A. D. 1930. It's pretty hard to believe, hut those arc ihe .scores the papers carried. The craving for conquest hasn't been confined to California teams. The Cougars have roamed up an'd down the coast, taking them as they came. Including Ihc University • of Washington. The tull name of the coach of this hogivlld crew is Orin E. Fellx- the-Cat Elght-for-Ten Babe Hol- llngbery.

Dartmouth; Washington has Jimmy Phclan, Notre Dame; Oregon State has Paul Schissler, Lombard College; California has Nibs Price, California; Southern California has Howard Jones, Yale; University of the City .of Los Angeles has Sapulding, Wabash; Stanford has Pop Warner, Cornell; Idaho has Leo Calland, U. S. C.; Mon- tana'has Major Mllburn, West Point. Hollingbcry Is just a high school boy, trying to get along. The Bnbe used to manufacture teams on a mass production basis. Back in 1920 in San Francisco lie was coaching three teams at a time arid operating a couple of battery and gasoline service stations. The three teams were the Ltck-Wilmcr- ding High School, Bates Prcu School and the Olympic Club. From 2 to 4 p. m. lie coachrd Lick; from 4 to 6. Bates, and from G to 8, the Olympics. Washington State became interested in the young man when his Olympics in 1925 beat the "wonder team" that played as the California varsity in 1925, after the Dears .had gone undefeated for four years. Earl V. Foster, graduate managers of the Cougars, recommended Hollingbery. When he was approached for the job at Washington State, he asked the committee who the Cougars were, please, and where Pullman, Washington, was. Newspapermen dubbed him "Eight-for-Ten" because whenever he was asked for 10 passes he sent j&W Hints?
