Earlier In the week, the gumc* win rated » tossup, but tales of Trojan power and of its superb organization after the 7 to 7 tie with Rice altered the odds. Southern California (3-0-1) has a habit of winning the games that count—nil other tilings being even—while there WAS some doubt as to how long California (o-O) could sweep along on the surging spirit created by Waldorf on his arrival from Northwestern. The Golden Bears have approximately the same material as the California team that won only two of nine games last season.

Only two games, in addition to the Duke-Wake Forest tussle, are on the Southern Conference schedule with Maryland at Virginia Tecli and Davidson at Washington ami Lee.
