Trojans vs. Huskies Top Week-End Tilt ' BAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 19. <£>)— !\Ve,Ht coast football confines itself Saturday to three mixed contests between colleges and service teams but Monday the University of Washington and University of Southern California Trojans clash in the first conference appearance of the Huskies. The slim Saturday gridiron schedule brings together the University of California at Los Angeles, Bruins and the St. Mary's Navy Pro-Flight rleven in a Los Angeles encounter while the fleet city Blue Jackets of Pleasanton clash with the University cf California Bears at Berkeley. Alameda's Coast Guard crew, who turned in the surprise of last, week by holding the redoubtable Fourth Air Force eleven of March Field to n. 20-20 tie, take on Amos Alonzo Stage's College of the Pacific Tigers In a night game at Stockton. The Tigers were tamed by the California Bears, 14-0, in their last out. St. Mary's Pre-Flight, playing hack to its performance last week, when it lost to Southern California, 6-0, might give the U. C. L. A. Bruins a tussle although the latter will be the favorites. U. C. L. A. played a 13-13 tie with U. S. C earlier in the season California, undefeated but tied by Southern California, rates over the Fleet City eleven, distinguished chiai'ly for Its stout defense. The Hears also have a defense, probably the strongest of any western college, and lately have acquired both a running and passing attack. The University of Nevada-St. Mary's College game, tentatively scheduled for San Francisco, Saturday! was canceled.

Things being what they are these days, your suit is taking it on the chin. But long before the manpower shortage, Timely devised a modern needlework technique to stand the gaff. Balanced Tailoring* it's called, because it blends the flexibility of hand tailoring with the sturdiness of machine stitching... and it holds the original smart lines of your Timely Suit till the last day you wear it!

TIMELY ALL WOOL $ WORSTED SUITS HARRISON'S SUITS FOR MEN 1618 19th Street RED TRIMS TROUT IN SHORT ORDER In the main event at Strelich Stadium last night, which lasted only Ifi minutes, the Wild Man Red Berry went on the rampage and defeated the sea-going Dick Trout when he tossed him across the mat and dislocated his right ankle. Due to his cleverness and quickness Trout outwrestled Berry during the first half of the match nnd it looked as though Trout was finally going to down the champ. As soon as the bell sounded beginning the match Berry started pulling his unfair tactics out of the bag, but Trout was prepared to meet any of the Wild Man's tricks and the surprised Berry couldn't make them work. Berry stayed surprised for quite some time, but soon he became provoked with Trout who was breaking every hold he applied and then the Wild Man, with his red hair standing on end, lost his temper and that was all for Trout. He quickly made a dive for Trout's leg and caught him in a reverse leg flip. On the way down to the mat Berry caught Trout above the eye and blood started to flow, continually running into his eyes, which effected Trout's sight. Berry, seeing his chance for victory, let the dazed Trout stagger to his feet, then like lightning he caught Trout around the neck and tossed him to the other side of the ring. When hitting the mat Trout dis- locaed his right ankle and the doctor came into the ring to stop the match. Referee Popeye O'Brien's decision declaring Wild Red Berry the winner wasn't popular with the fans and one gentleman at ringside, with the arm of his chair in hand, was ready to take Berry on himself. The semi-windup match saw Vic Christy and,Dandy Davis battle to a thrilling draw. Christy took the first fall in 15:08 when he aplied a hook scissors and then a body press to Davis, who wasn't very popular with the fans because .^ his unfair ways. The second fall was taken by Davis, who used a back breaker and then a body press, in 15:08. Because of Christy's back, which was injured on the last fall, it looked as though Davis would bo able to take the last one also, but Christy held on until the time limit ran out and the match was called a draw. George Wagner took the special event from Tony Morelli which was called in 16:15 because of unnecessary roughness on the part of Morelli. Every fan in the arena was booing .Morelli because of the unfair holds he used. One fan became so upset that he hurled a lady's black shoe into the ring. The preliminary match was won by Morris Shapiro, who downed Joe Ferona in 11:00 with reverse leg flip and body press. SPORTS fltebersffielb Californian Thursday, October 19,1944 17 CHAMP BLADES TAKE ON BLUES Play In the round robin football league reaches its peak tomorrow night with the undefeated, untied, and unseored upon Blades from East Rakers-field High School taking the field against their cross-town rivals the Bakersfield High School Blues. Although the main tilt is regarded as one of the outstanding of the year the fan's attention will be equally divided between It and the preliminary contest in which two undefeated lightweight rival squads will battle for the first place spot. The teams are the Junior Rlues from Kern County Union High School and the Daggers representing the East Bakersfield High School. Jack Hill's Blue eleven has gone through the season, so far, undefeated, copping games from both the Junior Whites and the Bobcats from Taft. In their first gnnie of the season they downed the Whites, 2(ML', and their next game in Taft they scuttled the Bobcats, 2(l-(i. On the other hand the Daggers, coached by Lenard Tate, have also j been successful, thus far in the season, by winning their first two games from the same two squads.

OR—The Huskies of the University of Washington can get an automatic bid to the Pasadena Rose Bowl by winning two football games in six days. They are going to meet the University of Southern California here next Monday night, then move on to Berkeley for a battle with California's Golden Bears the following Saturday. So far, Coach Pest Welch's club has won four straight by overwhelming scores. Willamette fell twice, as did Whitman. They're two small Washington colleges. No, the opposition wasn't very strong, but Washington could be equal to its task here in California. Southern California hasn't quite lived up to advance expectations. It was tied by U. C. L. A. and by California. On paper, U. S. C. Coach Jeff Cravath appears to have a pretty fair team. California doesn't have any outstanding players, aside from Roger Harding, a first-rate center, but it wins all its games. ENGLAND BIDS FOR MARKETS LONDON', Oct. 19.
