Ba^sett's 'shoulders Southern California D e- pends On Baker's Toe for Extra Points. By CLAIBE BDRCKY NEA Strvfce Spgrl* Writer This Is the time of year wh;n fans begin that game of guessing the name of the yciing man from Southern California who will be "put"-on the spot" In the annual football game with Notre Dame. In other words,' those of you who are Interested may tegln wondering who the Trojans will nominate'to miss the tying or winning point after touchdown, if any. Slncp, 1928, Howard Jones, the "head man" at .the Los, Angeles school,'has seen his team defeated In five, Important ' gaijies. because there one handy who could kick a '• football between a couple of goal posts at. the .right time. Stanford and Notre Dame won from the Trojans In 1928 by 13 to 12 scores; Notre Dame d}d It 7 to G n 1921 and 13 lo 12 again In 1929- Washington State College" turned back the Thundering Herd 7 to 0 only a few weeks ago.-And-all this is causing Howard Jones to become gray about the temples.

Baker Is a good' dropklcker—no Jrlckley, nor Glpp, nor Frosty Peers, .though! by a long way-^and ms a fair average for this season. After •missing his first three - at- empts','he registered six boote for wlnts after touchdown In Southern California's 74 -0 slaughter of California. That, kind of kicking, however, prooabiy won't do the Tro- ians a .world ;of good In ihe Notre Darrie-game,- for Baker may not be given'the.'warm-up'kicks he took against the Golden Bears.
