Huskies Slight Choice Over Cat In Game That May Mean Rose Bowl Bid . , ' . . . O _ _ - · _ - . . ,, ' . _ _ , ... , ,, + ' · ,, , ,, a w mllece I n Washineton's outlook is bright- as California's. I Washington hasn't played a n Iowa and Navy a n d meets Notre By KOSS XEWLAIS'D "(This'is"the sixth in a scries ·reviewing 'college' football by 'major .conferences.) '· SAN FRANCISCO, Xovi 1. tfP}-- Football's fabulous Rose Bowl, . granddaddy of all the post-season locales, looms In the background as Pacific Coast conference teams swing ' into November's home stretch drive. The- club 'to represent the big far western, circuit in the Pasa- 'dena classic, New Year's Day, may not be. decided until the last league returns are in Nov. 25. Bnt the teams most likely to go should be determined this week- end when California and ·Wash- ington clash in Seattle. Those two powerhouse squads are the only unbeaten, untied members of the conference. Each has a 3-0 league record. The University of California at Los Angeles, however, is ..a solid contender with three wins and one loss. UCLA could gut the call if it wins the rest of its games and the co-leaders 'each lose two. Stanford was th« lire-season favorite to take it all. But the Indians suffered two setbacks and their cause appears hopeless, although a slim mathematical chance remains. Southern California, Idaho, Washington State, Oregon State ar.d Oregon seem outclassed. The main event of the week and possibly of the season, therefore, will be fought between the California Boars and the Washington Huskies. The Bears rank sixth and the Huskies 12th in the Associated Press' national poll. California is bidding for its third successive Visit to the Rose BOM'!. It lost there last New Year's to Ohio State, 14-17, and to Northwestern, 14-20, the year before, California started the season with material Coach Lynn (Pap- nv) Waldorf described as "the greenest of any major college in the country." The green hands have done all right. Besides the three conference victories, they have beaten three other rivals, including strong Pennsylvania, 14-7. « Three Of the-hardest hitting backs anywhere, Jim Mona'chino, Pete Schabarum and John 0)s- zewskf, plus numberless linemen, have parlayed the California cause week by week. The team's standout candidate for All-America is Les Kichter, 220-pound right guard. . If California hurdles Washington, it still must meet two tough ones--UCLA and Stanford. Washington's outlook is bright er'In one sense. If it goes by California, it will have something of a downhill pull. It already has measured UCLA, 21-20, and Stanford, 21-7. After this week, less strong Oregon, Southern California and Washington State will provide the opposition, Washington's single defeat was by non-conference Illinois, 13-20. Howie Odell, who took over as Washington's head man in 1948 after six successful years at 1'ale, has produced a championship caliber cluh that strikes swiftly both in the air and on the ground. The backfield rates in the' same heavy punching class j as California's. Washington's b i g advantage lies in Don Hcinrich, whose mastery of the T-quarterbacking role leaves little to be desired. Hcin- rich's guidance has steered- the ·Huskies to the conference top in total offense. His record of com- plcted-passes is a» amazing 77 of 122. This is the margin of superiority that makes Washington the pre-game .favorite. Hcinrich, a junior, is the Huskies' principal All-America candidate, followed by charging Pullback Hugh McElhcnny and pass- snagging, clever-running Halfback Roland Kirkby. Washington hasn't played an intersectional opponent in the Rose Bowl since 1937, when it lost to Pittsburgh, 21-0. In 1944, it was defeated by Southern California, 29-0, in an intra-confercnce war-time-version.- .Intersectionally, Pacific Coast teams, conference-and independents combined, have only five wins and one, tie against 10 defeats!' · ' . ' · ' · · · ^California won over Pennsylvania. Washington defeated Kansas State and .Minnesota and lost to Illinois. UCtA lost to Illinois and-won from Purdue. Southern California dropped decisions to Iowa and Navy and meets Notre Dame next month. Oregon State lost to Michigan State. Stanford plays Army next _month. : ..Idaho was defeated;by Texas: Western and has yet to face 'Wyoming, Saturday, and Boston university in November. Among -the independents, St.' Mary's played a 7-7 tie with Georgia, Santa Clara lost to .Rice and. Marquette.

The 6' 4", 215-pound youth from Santa Ana, Calif., is the first sophomore to gain the award since Elaine Earon, of Duke, earned the nod last year.

Baker, tired of the grousing about his team's five-defeats record, told the alumni Monday it costs $50,000 a year to produce a winning team--and to "get it up or I'll get the hell out," His telephone jangled all day with -promises of jobs for footbal! players.

"We had the same problem at Kansas, where I went," the mar said, "but once the boosters gol 'behind the: team with job support we began to roll." Even the school officials, who al first were embarrassed by the coach's frank outburst, jumped to his side. Athletic Director Ellison Ketchum said "anyone knows thai job support it a requisite if gooc athletic teams are to be developed.' Baker said today he didn't mean he wanted the 830,000 in'cash. He wanted that much in salaries-to be paid the football players for work they would do for the outside com panies. · He said he was delighted the alumni were getting behind him "I told them what we needed for the best interests of the school,' he added.

The project was argued for some time yesterday in a smoke- filled hotel room, and everyone appeared a. bit hazy about just what was accomplished. 'Making Process' Leslie O'Connor,' Chicago attorney and former assistant to the late Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis, spokesman for the Coast loop, hazarded: "We are making progress, that is certain. It probably will be'a compromise--and compromises are damned by everyone--but I'm'cer- tain we will do some good." .Branch Rickey, Brooklyn prexy and general manager until last Saturday, turned over a new conversational leaf with a' straightforward: "I think we'll accomplish some- tossed in the!thing."

Warning From Coach The 17 candidates who showed up yesterday are not all able- bodied, necessitating the use of a few "gold-brickers."

The Coast. league wants to prevent its players from being drafted by the major leagues, and in turn promises to refrain from drafting talent from lower circuits. The move is generally considered part of the circuit's campaign to gain recognition as a third major loop.. Jalopy racing in the Old Pueblo will take a three-week hiatus beginning this week and all future racing programs have been cancelled at the Gilpin Sports stadium under the sponsorship of the Tucson Auto and Cycle Racing association. Association officials said today that no race programs are planned anxious to revenge 1949's "D" loss to the Panthers, 13-19. day Other than Clawson, who is still resting at home, Amphi's most serious ailments include Lowell Smith's stiff- back, an A all-season malady, . and Jack Dalrymple's aching" bones, well-bruised in the Yuma battle.
