. OAKLAND TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, DEC. 5, 1934 Tl"- m lullllllllll i j DONS PRIMED FOR FIRST WIN OYER ST. MARY'S BY PHIL RAY RAPID rises are the rule rather than the exception in football. Take the Gaels and Dons for example. ' The University of San Fran-icisco, playing then as St. Igna- 'tius College, was trimmed 48 to 0 by St. Mary s in 1919 and 25 to 0 3 in 1928. Yet today the Dons are conceded an even chance to defeat ;.the Galloping Gaels Sunday at ;'Kezar, in spite of betting odds that iavor the Gaels. , The "unknown" Dons failed to score a touchdown in five years of Slay against St. Mary's, crossing the " line for the first time in 1931. Then came Spud Lewis, a year after the J)ons assumed their new name. His ' first exhibition under the Warner; . system found the Dons on the short J end of a 16 to 7 score with a green "' team. Last year the Gaels won, 7 to 0. This year, with a host of seniors flaying their last same, the Dons Wlii mane a auierimueu . uiu mi , . their first win over the Moraga eleven. 1 OOO O PEAKING of "unknowns," did jl ,3 y know that st- Mary's record wasn't printed In the official football record book In 1921?. Today! they rank as one of '. the top teams In attendance and it are known from coast to coast.

The modern "ivory hunters" don't search the coal mines and wharves (or their players but they do fo ' after prep and Junior college stars with a modern finesse that is not oaly ingenious but effective, since it it backed by various alumni clubs and organizations whose dues provide the support. Much to the dingust of the more rapid California fans, the harvest of 6 star prep athletes last summer came in for considerable pro- fesslonal criticism, we understand. : a ft a A LTHOUGH Arleigh Williams J has two more games to play for California, the tears are already oozing from California eyes Ba the prospects of u season without him loom.

CLIPPER GLOOMY 28 PICKED FOR T.C.U.GAME N SOUTH By BUD SPENCER Twenty-eight Santa Clara Broncos led by coaches Clipper Smith and Buck Shaw entrained last night for the great Horned Frog hunt. The great Horned Frog pursuit will end on the banks of the Trinity River in the city of Fort Worth, home of the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs. And the city named after Brigadier General Worth by that eminent old warrior, Winfield Scott, which is now a metropolis of oilfields and cotton production, the Brtfncos from the thriving little university of Santa Clara will attempt to corner all the "frogs" of T. C. U. in that university's football pasture next Saturday afternoon. FEAR8 SURPRISE Circulating on the train 1odny was Smith with his veritable frown of pessimism. And as he did last night and the night before. 'he continues to say that Coach Dutch Meyer's Horned Frogs aren't tame animals. "Texan Christian may not be a great ball clnb," groaned the Clipper last night before leaving. "but It's good enough to surprise us. Doesn't It throw passes all over the lot? Haven't the toads the geratest center In the country In Darrell Lester? And look at their backs!" Mv. m- ClinDer, you ve got us nervous", too!

NEW PLAVS READY Smith revealed last night as he shook his veil of pessimism for a moment that the Broncos are armed with several new plays, several of which are aerial shots from the trusty right arms of - Sobrero and De Rosa. The Broncos because of rain have been a team that had n nassing attack but couldn't use 't in most of this year's Important games. They may be expected to match T. C. U.'s air raids with a few oasses of their own. The Broncos worked harder on pass defense during the past few days than on any other depart ment of the game as Al Ruffo's freshmen rquad ran Texas Chris tlon plavs avainst them. When they switched to offense Thomas displayed gome real ball-carrying talent and although he was unable to break away against the year- lines for any great gains he made many short romps, Texas ChristUn was upset last week by the Southern Methodist Mustangs. If) to 0, "That," moans Smith, "Is the reason why they're going to be tough against us. If T. C. U. had defeated the Mustangs wp'd have a better chance We with to announce that din ner Smith is gnin into vaudeville to wear a wet blanket as Job's comforter.

PERIERA SEEN AS HEADLINER Al Perlera, who sometimes grap ples under the name Perry and is one of San Jose's favorite sons, is expected to embellish the bright reputation he has established in this city by cutting down Jerry Monahan, hard bitten Irishman, in tfcl special event to the Glen Wade- Cy Williams main event at the Friday night Auditorium wrestling show. , Perlera, after a slow local start early in the season, appears to have struck his stride, and has built a sturdy foundation of wins In recent weeks. Three months spent in South America, marked by mini rims victories, hasn't hurt his reputation and it has improved his technique. Pericra, in recent contests displayed a smooth efficiency that is drawing some qulzlcal glances rrom ins prospective opponents. Messrs. Dan Kololf nnci .lack Ganson, moguls of the mat here, have expressed the belief lhat with in a month or so Pcriera will ro a local main event. Me is expecjrn fi experience little difficulty with the trial-horse, Monahan, who while rough and ready, possesses no par ticular finesse. Return of Dean Dctton to the lo cal mat is being awaitea witn interest by Oakland fans who recall the fleet Utah lad as one of the flashiest audience pleasers in charmed circle of muscle kneading. Detton will bring his flying tackles and drop kicks into action against Rube" Wright, of Los Angeles in the semi-windup Wade will substitute for "Gentle- man" Jack Washburn.

At least six of those nRmed as nominees for the Bay Meadows handicap also are probable starters in the $100,000 Santa Anita handicap, 'to be run in Los Angeles Feb ruary 15. Riskalus, owned by Norman W. Churrh, Los Angeles millionaire sportsman, already has been named as a favorite in Saturday's handicap features as a result of his exhibition workout at Bay Meadows last Saturday. The big bay, held under double wraps, breezed the mile and one-sixteenth in approximately 1:39 after twice circling the track at a brisk gallup to get limbered up. BAY TRACK FAST. The track record of 1:10 1-5 for the six furlongs, set by Time Supply last Saturday, establishes Bay Meadows as one of the fastest tracks in the coufitry. The victory of Time Supply against the two entries of John D. Spreckels III Sharp Thoughts and Risky Misswas completely unexpected as the entry ci Mrs. F. A. Carreaud was reported to have been in poor condition after being shipped from the East. FOUL IS STILL FOUL.

I I .,11 1, ,,11 ci ftdiums "Rusty is the victim of rheumatic arthritis, which may cripple him for life, sny physicians at the Ala meda County Hospital, where he has lain in bod since October 8. He was on the brink of a career in pro football, he revealed today, when the seizure came. "I had a secret contract to play for the New York Giants at $250 a game when I got so sick I had 'o give it up," he lamented as he lay in his hospital bed. He is not the Gill ot the old football days. He is gaunt and plainly shows the ravages of his ailment. From 198 pounds, his "fighting trim" three years ago, he has dropped to 150 pounds. He has one goal while physicians probe his case with X-rays, seeking a source of his ailment. "I want to be out of here by Christmas," he says, and, with the old spirit goes on, "I will be!" Trojan Breaks Leg; Irish Now 2-f Favorites LOS ANGELES, Dec. 8. (U.R) The luckless Southern California Trojans suffered a body blow today with the loss of Ward Browning, first string right end. Browning was counted out of Saturday's Notre Dame game when physicians said his right leg was broken just above the ankle. Going down under a punt in scrimmage yesterday, the 200-pound end tackled Bill Howard and- in the ensuing pileup was left sprawling on the ground with a snapped leg It was the serond such casualty of the season. Several weeks ago Beavltt Thurlow, substitute end, broke a leg in scrimmage. Browning's place was taken over by Bob Fuhrer, alternate left end, who himself is nursing a broken nose. Browning's loss was taken keenly by his teammates. Although his play all season had been disappointing, he showed a surprising reversal against Washington last Saturday and the team relied on him continuing his stellar work against Notre Dame. His departure made the Irish the more pronounced favorites. Odds of 2 to 1 were quoted with Trojan followers displaying little interest. By MRS. CURRY LOW Mrs. P. E.
