For instance there was the day Washington and Lee and West Virginia battled in a sea of mud at Charleston, W. Va. The slippery ball was fumbled, as is usual on such a day. Things became even m'ore complicated when West Virginia recovered a Washington and Lee fumble on the final play of the first quarter and the ball was moved to the opposite end of the field as the teams changed sides. The players, coated in inud, made. the long trek and West Virginia went into a huddle. As the West Virginia quarterback snapped out "play 95-X" a lone pjayer pulled quickly out of the group and sheepishly lined up with the other team. It was Washington and Lee's Bill Chipley, an ali-Southern Conference end, who didn't know he was with the wrong team until "95-X" was called—a play he never heard of. It was a blustery day when Washington and California hooked up in a Pacific Coast Conference contest. Gerry Ajustin, Washington's third BILL OF RIGHTS WEEK ' , SACRAMENTO, Dec. 10. UP)— ALBANY, N. Y., Dec. lO^'UPI— Col- ; Governor Warren Monday pro- j gate University's retiring football claimed the period from December coach, 68-year-old Andy Kerr, said I his only present plan for the future was "to keep my connection with the Shriners' East-West • game as long as I can." " , ; 9 to 15 as Bill of Rights week in California, noting the latter date was the one hundred fifty-filth anniversary of the ratification of the i original Bill of Rights. would see any action in an import ant game like that so he put on an extra se't of long underwear to make himself more comfortable on the bench. But Washington's first two quarterbacks got hurt and Austin was sent into the game. He got hot in more ways than one and reeled' off two touchdowns. The extra set of longies was discarded at the end of the half. In the Rice-Texas A. & M. game. Referee Abb Curtis blew his whistle but in the din none of the players heard him. Rice was in punt formation and as the center snapped the ball towar.ds the waiting kicker, Curtis moved into the play and took the pass from center himself. No gam! Paul Crowe, St. Mary's halfback, was an awfully mad gent for a while in. the California tilt. With a clear field ahead and en route to a touchdown, an official ran into his path and Crowe went sprawling. Crowe wasn't as burned up as Stanford on one play in the Washington State set-to. With Stanford on the offense, an arbiter took a position so close to the play that ths Indians couldn't shift. By the time the official withdrew and the shift was completed, the play was stopped and Stanford was penalized 5 yards for taking too much time. | R«d, f Katem, f Scare, c D.Pruett, ; 1 Kato. g Bltcns White Fisher Neil Stab!
