BY ERSKINE JOHNSON NEA Smi« Staff Corresixiiiddit LOS ANGELES — The Irish Rambter isn't rambling and the Trojan uarhoi.-e Is an old gray mare who "ain't what she used to be." Which, brother football 'fanatic, Is Just another way of saying that the two teams which meet- at South Bend Saturday. Nov. 25. aren't the same Noire Ilr.ine and Southern California tea'ms we used to see. ". For the first lime since their inaugural and historic mettlng. lack in 192C, little or no significance can bo attached to tills year's annual clash. Formerly THE game "of" the year, with the national title usually at stake, the Trojan- 'Irish 1933 encounter Is just another contest. * • » 'Under the leadership of Hunk Anderson, the "Fighting Irish" have gone from tad to worse this year. Meanwhile, Coach Howard Jcnes' -Trojans, 1331-32 national champs, have been crowded out (.f the running nftcr a winning tlreak of 2G games. •'Oddly enough, Notre Dame's 'fpbr showing EO far this year Is history' repeating itself. In 1928 the Irish went through a season "c'fscribed as d'snstroits \vhcn they Ifisl four games while winning five. • In 1929, hosvvcr. Notre Dame came back, defeated the four ti'juns it had Irst to in 1928, won 'ihc rest of its Rnmes and brought home a national title. The teams it, defeated included Carnegie Tech, Southern California and Wisconsin, who had taken the treasure of the Irish in 1928 * + • While Notre Dame was losing HOOKS AND SLIDES Its' fourth straight game to Pur- Slopplnj Ileslnn due/ the Trojan war horse ' was .laiibed and branded by Stan•lord.

Previously, c-leveri "Iron Men" from Oregon Stale held U. S. C. to n scoreless iie in one ol the real upsets of the year. The Trojans showed t gns of- a cotne-back when lliey real Oregon university. "All this brings us back to the coming Trojan-Irish game. Both outfits will be fighting to regain plEstige lost during an erratic t?ason. ^ut the tilt will be far from a cridiron epic. It'will be a hollow victory if (he Trojans, already heavy favorites, win, even if the victory doss tie the Trojan-frish series at four each. 'On the other hand, if Notre Dfriie emerges on the long end of the score it will be the BIG upset of the year.
