' C^ -; PIPEFULS " Porlerville -Is Promised Fine Reception on .. Saturday Eve Tf THE Drillers are not tired to- A day, It will not be Coaches D. W. Griffith, Cap Haralson or John Loustalot's fault. Tho fact is the Drillers have put In some punishing days In preparing for the For- tervllio game here Saturday night. The Sandabs will moot the Porter:, vllle lightweights In a preliminary tilt scheduled to he started at 6:30 o'clock. "Stormy Weather" is the theme song the Blue Blaze varsity and lightweight elevens sing. Following a sharp session spent with the block Ing and tackling dummies; tho big Bakersfleld varsity swings into n, grueling scrimmage very afternoon and. keeps at It until It Is either too ' dark to see the ball or the men cry quits. And, they have not-cried quits yet, •jf>- yirst String The first and,second strings of the Driller "eleven"' rarely clash in scrimmage but'pound away at the third team. Here are the men Griff usually picks when ho trots out the first two teams McCoy, Mohr, aicmon, O'Connor, Watson, Lewis, *> Clerou, Jaussaud, Heffernan, Flo Rlto, Robesky, Perez, Aubura, Williams, Simon, Howard, Shively, AVa- them, Snider, Yancey, Osborne, Mlers and Trout. These 22 men will prob- , ably do the bulk of the playing during tho coming months although there is many a promising bit of material on the third string and on Jesse Stockton's "Goofs." Sandabs Are Tough The Sandabs believe in toughening themselves in the hardest way, by "live" tackling and blocking. This means the little men do away with dummies and other mechanical equipment. The boys tackle and * block each other in a way which makes their teeth rattle. Following a bit of polite slaughter in this way. the boys go into a scrimmage session now and then which makes an aver- uge team look like a bunch of softies. TROJANS STRONG LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24. (A. P.) Coach Howard Jones, unhampered by serious injuries to his squad, will send southern California Into the Oregon Slate game Saturday In full strength. Ambrose Schlndler, sophomore quarterback, Dick Berryman, hefty fullback, and a few others have recovered from minor wounds, and are ready for action. Jones plans only light drills today ana tomorrow after a brace o£ hard scrimmages this week. Piles Go Quick Without Salves or Cutting Itching, bleeding, protruding piles are caused by bad circulation of the blood In the lower bowel. The parts become weak, flabby, and lifeless. Only an internal remedy can remove the cause—that's why salves, suppositories and cutting often fall. Dr. Leonhardt's medicine, HEM-HOID, succeeds because it relieves congestion, restores circulation—helps tjj heal and strengthen the diseased parts. HEM-ROID has given quick, safe and lasting relief to thousands of Pile sufferers. It will do the same for you or money back. Kimball & Stone and druggists everywhere sell HEM-ROID with this guarantee.— Adv. *Jfm Qy "TAKE IT FROM ME,. THtCOOORICHCBiOITPlAH NO CASH NEEDED!

Dobie had coached two years at North Dakota State before he went to Washington. He did not lose a game on the North Dakota schedule. Down bere in Southern California the California boys are pretty proud of Andy Smith's "wonder team" and Its five-year record. It was a fine record, too, but so IB that of Gil Dobie. On Saturday of this week tho University of Washington meets Minnesota and Minnesota for three years has had the greatest football team in the country. I hope, as an alumnus of the University of Washington that the Husky will give the gopher a terrible "chawing". I believe, however, that Minnesota will defeat Washington Saturday and one of the reasons Is Mr. Bierman, Minnesota coach. Need a Dobie If old Gil Dobie were behind the helm at Washington I might have another guess, but Phelan, in my opinion, can't hold one of those little Christmas tree candles to old Dobie as a coftch and Biertnan is Phelan's superior too. As I see It, the California coaches, particularly Howard Jones, have been too smart for Mr. Pholan who certainly haa good material. I also see that the sports writers are rating Washington as potential tops on the coast this year. U. S. C. looks pretty good to me and its hard to find much wrong with California nn.d Stan- 'ford though several of the boys can't sec 'em this year. BEST IN WORLD AND WORST IN WORLD Before Joe Louis was plastered with the Schmellng leather barrage, many of the sports writers were calling him a super- fighter, one of the greatest scrappers of all time—Invincible and all that sort of thing. After Schmeling had proven that Louis was no superman but Just a first-rate scrapper, some of tho boys that -write sports for a living rebounded to the other extreme and said Louis was a palooku, a set-up an da hollow marvel of twentieth century ballyhooey. Knocking out Al Ettore, this week in the fifth round, Louis proved that he Is still a cool, first-rate fighter, with a crush- ,ing punch. The truth, as Aristotle implied, is usually some- whore between enthusiasm and disparagement. WEVENT FIIIBS STANDINGS League Leaders I Minnesota Will Show Up Real Strength of Washington IJy FRANK OORRTK fMmorlnlrtl I'l-pf* I.caifil Wire) CEATTLE, Sept, 24.—In the note*^ books of tho experts the University of Washington football team is listed as a contender for the Pacific coast championship, but come Saturday and Couch Jimmy Phelan will got tho cold, hard facts on the gridiron. Picking on probably tho toughest foe in tho country—the three- year undefeated Minnesota Oophors —the'highly toutod Washington veterans will receive a rigid test. Victory over Minnesota In tho big Intersectlonal game hero would automatically make Washington the team to beat on the coast and would skyrocket the Huskies into the national picture. And that Is tho reason Pholan Is as close-mouthed as a clam nowadays. / "Why ask mo w.hat I think of tho team?" ho said sharply. "M'e'll all know a lot more about It Saturday. We couldn't pick on anybody any tougher than Minnesota for an opener." Fancy Stepping Harks (Atioclated Frets t,ta»et AMERICAN , Batting—Appitng, White Sox, .3SS; Averlll, Indians, .376.

His main objective haa been to maneuver Byron Halnes, a fleet-footed halfback, Into tho clear. Working with Halnes in tho vet- ern backfiekl aits Elmer Logg, a long-range kicking quarterback; Jimmy Cain, a rugged blocking halfback, and Ed Nowogroski, a line- splitting fullback. All are passers, but none outstanding. The biggest fight on the. squad is among the rest of. tho ball carriers who are seeking second backflold berths. A.t present the substitute unit is composed of Al Oliver, Chuck Nowton, Jimmy Johnston and Merle Miller, all sophomores. Fritz WaskowltH, the best passer on the squad, still Is trying to land a placo. From tackle to tackle tho lino Is strong and experienced, but the loss of last year's ends left gaping holes to fill. To start tho season Phelan will try Frank Peters, a sophomore, '• and Dick Johnson, a letterman with little experience, at the wings. The ends behind them are "not HO hot" In the words of Phelan. Heavy Front Wall The rest of the front wall averages Just under 200 pounds a man and should bo able to handle most any situation. The regulars are Chuck Bond nnd Vic Markov, tackles; Max Starccvlch and Frank Mattes, guards, and John Wlatrak, center. Before many games are played Steve Sllvlnskl, a 192-pound sophomore, may edge into a guard spot. The Schedule The schedule: September 26, Minnesota at Seattle: October 3.
