Trojans By Kl) SAX FHAXCISCO, <xt. 9. iu.p>— 'Another spine-tingling tie game that left 40,000 Angelenus limp in their Coliseum seats today put the University of California Bears one jump ahead of the southern California Trojans in the Pacific coast conference Rose Bowl race. Coach Stub Allison's Bears. 2'.-a to 1 underdpgs, grabbed a 6-6 tie and came within inches of a second touchdown that would have marked Saturday's greatest footbal upset. ,But Jeff Cravath's Ruse Bowl champions emerged with a deadlock; matching a 13-13 stand-off with U.

The strong Film f'ity eleven—powered by five former I'niversity of Southern California.

Prttsaging the Rangers' first real test, their opponents of next Sunday, the T.os Angeles Wildcats, rolled over the Portland Rockets. 20 to 7, behind the pass pitching of St. Mary's Andy Marefos. The win was the "first for the Wildcats. In the league's other game the San Diego dinners edged the Los Angeles Mustangs, 7 to C. the winning margin being a drnpkiek conversion by Halfback Bob Hess. Although operating without their backfield star, Steve Bagarus from Xotre Dame, the San Diego Bombers flattened the Oakland Giants, 21-0. in the Giants' 11144 debut in the Pacific Coast Professional League. Joe Manski subbed for Bagarus and tossed passes for the first rally. While the Powerhouse San Francisco Packers were trampling the Hollywood Wolves, 2fi-7, the other northern member of the same league. San Jose's Mustangs, rallied to de. i'eat the Los Angeles Bulldogs. 14-:!. The Mustangs overcame a first quarter field goal advantage by scoring touchdowns in the second and fourth periods. The Packers rang up 19 points in the first half in a power display, but the game's highlight was staged by Hollywood when St. Mary's Harry Mattos arched a 50-yard pass to Kandy San ford for a third period touchdown.

Jim Hardy passing L'"> yards to Gordon Gray early in the second quarter after the Trojans had battered unsuccessfully at the Bear goal. But star Bear Guard Bill Hachten nabbed a fumble on the L'. S.

Midway in the final quarter Muir, George Quist and Jed Garthwaite al- leruacd in a drive from the Trojan 4S, Muir ramming up the gual line at the climax but failing to get the referee's nod for a touchdown. First down were 10 to 7 and yardage 1115 to 14'J in favor of U. S. C. Cal Bears Hold Top Spot in Bowl Race By Kl) EMERY SAX FRANCISCO, Oct. 9. (U.R) — The undefeated L'niversity of California Bears hold the lead in the Pacific coast conference Rose Bowl race today off their ti-(i tie with U. S. C. and (i-0 win over I'. C. L. A.—but watch out for those Washington- J luskies! The end of the first round of play among the three California members of the conference found them standing hue this, adding in that sensational K!-j;i U. S. C.-L'. C. L. A. tie: Team— W. J.,. T. Pet. California J 0 1 l.OOO I'. S. C 0 0 '2 .000 r. c. L. A o i i .000 Washington 000 .ODD California meets L'. C. L. A.'s winless Bruins again in Los Angeles. November 11, and the U. S. C Trojans journey to Berkeley for a second crack at the Bears, November IS, before tangling with U. C. L,. A. in the season's finale, November "a. But enter Coach Pest Welch's University of Washington Huskies, looking for a chance to redeem themselves after their healing in the Rose | Bowl last New Year's at the hands of I'. S. C. in the first all-western classic. The Huskies have prcpped for their conference season by trouncing Willamette University, 71-0 and 40-li, and Whitman College, fiO-K. They polish off against Whitman again this week, then turn their eyes southward. Navy regulations forbid absence of most of Washington's stars from cHJfsses, but a one-week interval between semesters will allow the Huskies to meet C. S. C. in a Monday night game at Los Angeles, October -3, and California the next Saturday, October 2S. in Berkeley. A sweep of the two games would make Washington the logical choice of the conference for the Rose Bowl. U. C. L. A. already being defeated by California. Unfortunately the Bruins could not be fitted into the Husky schedule. Washington's November schedule includes both the Fourth Air Force and Second Air Force, both powerful service teams, who would test the Huskies but not affect their conference standing. ONE MAN'S VIEW ON WORLD SERIES Ity KRKDKRK'K C. OTIIM.IN AT SPORTSMAN'S PARK, ST. LOT IS, Oct. 9. (URi—All right, then. I don't know anything about baseball. Neither do a lot of other people and if you experts will leave us alone today, and quit sneering, I'll get along with my inning-by-iuniug report on the fifth game of the World Scries: The customers are fighting their way into the ball yard" at 2 p. in. It's cold and I have no overcoat and there goes the "Star Spangled Banner" by a 20-pipco. I'nlon band. First innings: Cardinals—Three j baseballors who shouldn't be em- ! barr.-i.sseil further by seeing their j names in print nearly break their j necks striking out. i Crowns—The management an- i nounces that the ticket holders can keep the foul balls for souvenirs if they can hang onto 'em. The hot coffee tastes like cool mud. Second inning: Cardinals—H-m-m- m-m-m-m-ni. Browns—JCarilla hits a ball into the grandstand and now we've got a fist fight, with an usher in a baby blue uniform as referee. The little guy In the green necktie gets the bull: the fat guy who doesn't get it is sore. A big league baseball is worth $2..",<). Third inning: Cardinals—Later on, maybe, something will happen. Browns—K'reevich gets to second because one of those Cardinal outfielders stumbles over his own feet; looks to me as though both of his shoes are lefts. Fourth inning: Cardinals—This j ball park is the only place in St. I Lnuis where you can buy all the cigarettes you want. Browns— Kvery time Xarilla swings at the ball and misses, he falls down. This gets dirt on his white suit and that's no good, the dry cleaning situation being what it is. Fifth inning: Cardinals—Are you gelling bored, loo'.' Browns—A four-motored bomber buzzes the field and buzzes it again and if that pilot comes any closer I'll be writing an item about a plane wreck. Sixth inning: Cardinals—Panders hats out a home run between the legs of an awe-struck movie cameraman earning his living on the roof <jf the right field pavilion. Browns—Christina n strikes out, with three men on base, and it's a good thing there's a fence between him and the patrons; otherwise he'd be a freshly slaughtered baseball player. Seventh inning: Cardinals—Seat number 4 in row number 5 is the hardest I ever sat on. It's made of slats and I bet. I'm marked for life. Browns—Galehouse, the pitcher, hits to second and puts on a Brown sweater with tan sleeves enroute. I told you it was cold. Kightli inning: Cardinals—Lil- whilcr knocks a second home run into the lap of a lady in a purple dress in the right field pavilion. He's excited; so is the lady. That's it, friends. I don't care what you may see elsewhere, the rest of this ball game doesn't matter.
