The collection numbers quite a | few pictures now. Tte oldest is that of Willie Heslon, who oncej cavorted on some elevens at Michigan known as p:int-a-nilmtlc j teams. His picture has been hang- Inn there amid cobwebs since 1002. •The remandcr, even the more recent heroes of the past 10 years, which includes Churchill of Harvard, Muller of California, Notro Dame's Four Horsemen, Pootey Hubert of Alabama. Biff Huffman cf Stanford and Russ Saunders uf Southern California, have attained degrees of mustlness, depending on their periods of confinement. '.' Eight thousand fans comprised a capacity crowd that wntcluxl an inaugural Tournament of Roses classic In 1902 between Michigan and Stanford. Living up to their po!nt-s-minute Instincts, thc Wolverines had scored 49 points against . an exhausted Stanford .group with several minutes left In the game. At this stage, Captain Fisher oi Stanford gasped to Caplain White of Michigan: .. "We're ready to call It a day, If your men are willing." . - That ended the first New Year's Day classic on thc -consI, with Michigan a 49 to 0 winner. :.

Grid experts may talk of power and deception, but Mike has his own Ideas on what made Alabama a great team this season: His faith, likewise his shanks', goes into a certain pair of ^threadbare trousers at game time. Once the 'Bama trainer misplaced hts treasured trousers. Mike had to den other Jeans, and It almost meant disaster for the Tide. Thereafter he never forgot; his. magic pants worked their spell over Tennessee, Vai\- derbilt, Kentucky, Florida and others on the Alabama schediil It is hardly necessary to acid that Mike's "touchdown pants' are packed in the Crimson Tldo equipment shipped to Pasadena for'the Rose Bowl game.

It looks like Just another Job for Einstein. Alabama was placed third, between Southern California .'and Washington State. Southern California was second and Washington State was fourth, eren though the boys from the north beat the! Trojans. On the basis of the voting, it might be figured that Alabama will win the Rose Bowl game from the Cougars. It might also be figured that Washlnjton : State- isn't so good, even if It did ! defeat the Trojans.
