BV EHSKINE JOHNSON' ', XEA Senife Stiff Curri-siianilfiil LOS ANGELES, LVc. 28. —The Rose Bowl game, lo be played nt Pasadena, New Year's Day. probably will be Hie mosl iruMiul in i!ie history of llic classic— I Because both learns have been beaten! j Heretofore teams plavins in nose Powl contests have hart snollf.ssj records as a general rule. Hut \ Stanford, western representative in I i^e contest, has been <!efeatetl by! Wnihfnqton State. Columbia, bo:ir- Ine the east's' colors, went down to defeat nt Ihe hands of Piiticv- Dr-sulte these defeats and the ro- ixntrd interiurtly of Columbia vhrn compared to the stienclh of Ihe mlthly Stanford horde. % the panic offers prospects of beini: a tight Etru?6lc. Columbia;- rated the underdo;;, can-count on Lou Lltlle to .«nrlns some surprises on "Tlnv" Tliorn- hill's crew. II tlie surprises can I'p frenuciit enough, tlie slory will be a lot different than Ihe one the boys are telling now. Football teams representing the west IIHVC won eight of 'the Hose Rowl pames. the east five and there were three lies, onlv one of which was a scoreless affair. In the sixteen sjame.i. tr| e. wrsliMii tennis rolled nn 243 nnlnls lo the east's 142 potnls. while the east v'fls handed four "cose c?gs and Ihe west hut one. the latter occurring In 1931 when Alabama defeated Washington Stale, 24 lo 0. Onlv six western siuarts hnvc played In the annual classic, white the east hns been represented by IS trams. For the west. Washington Stnte, Unlvcrcltv of Wnshlni;- fon and Orefron University have rlavcd twice. California and Stanford three times each, and the University of Southern California four times. The Trolans wore the mitslanding defenders of coasl honors, winning all four starts. For the cast. Brown, University of Pennsylvania. Harvard. Ohio Plate, Washtnqton and Jefferson, Pcnn State, Navy, Notre Dame. Georgia Tech and Tnlane each have nlaved one game Alabama and Pittsburgh have represented the east three times each, Pitt drouplmj all three of Its tills, while Alabama won two and tied another. • Oddly enough, two df the west's higliest scores over the Ifi-game period were handed out by the Trojans against- one rival. Pittsburgh. In 1930, the "Thunderim: Herd" defeated Pitt. 47 to 14. and on last. New Year's Day teat the same team. 35 to 0. Notre Dame's 2f to. 7 nod over Stanford in 1925 ami. Alabama's 1931 defeat of Washington State were the best the east could do in rolling up touchdowns. * * • The. Rose Bowl series started In 1910. though the idea was born In 1902 when Michigan was Invited west to play Stanford. In 191S and 1919. the intercollegiate scries was Interrupted by the war. but service learns filled llic gap and furnished two thrilling games. In the first tilt, tire U. S. Marine Corps from Mare Island, Calif., defeated a Camp Lewis aggregation, 19 10 7. In the 1910 panic, r, lear.i from the Naval Training Slaiion al Great Lakes, Illinois, defeated (he Mare Island Marines. 14 to 0 Pasadena's'Rose Bowl, scene of the annual encounter, was dedicated on January 1 1, 102?. and is one of -the' oldest stadia in the west. It was originally planned to be in the shape of a horseshoe but has since been enlarged and revamped-untll it stands today as a perfect ellipse, with a seating capacity of 85,511. The bowl Is situated in a drv river canyon lying:' along the western HnjMs of the city. More than GP.OOO automobiles can be accommodated on land immediately surrounding it. Elk Sumy Asked ABERDEEN.
