Not only does the big show out here in the golden west bring lo- getlicr two of (lie most powerful creations in the country, but the same has become a classic despite tr.e severe criticism of college faculties in the east and mid-west. Tournament of Roses officials, by virtually turning their production over to the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate conference, made hesitant eastern and mid-western schools like it. Where the Tournament, of Roses people on at least two occasions experienced ercat difficulty in obtaining an opponent for the fnr western champion, eastern, mid-western, southern, and southwestern schools now eagerly seek the Rose Bowl Invitation and to share rich gate receipts.
