Officials SlowCame, Hamper Cal Offense Fong, Swaner, Begovich Ramble for Touchdowns; HirschlerTallies Two f By Prescott Sullivan MEMORIAL STADIUM, BERKELEY (Calif.), Sept. 20. University of California's Golden Bears voted the straight 'Vin With Waldorf" ticket today for a crushing victory over the University of Santa Clara's uhite-rlad and all but whitewashed Broncos. A crowd of 40,000, sitting under a towering: column of hhck smoke raised by a grass and brush fire racing; in the surrounding-hills, saw the Bears launch their 1947 campaign under the direction of a brand new coach with a five touchdown assault which gave them the ball game, 33-7. The outcome was more one-sided than had been expected, but California's victory was not achieved with what we would call consummate artistry. The Bears were powerful but ragged. No more ragged than the officials, however. Those genetlemen were really confused. There was an excuse for the Bears. After all, it was their first start and they hadn't had time to master all of the lessons their new mentor, the portly Lynn Waldorf, had given them. But there was no excuse for the officials. They've had months to bone up on the few changes that have been made in the rules since last year. Yet, right off the bat, their bewilderment was apparent to one and all, as shall be demonstrated later in this piece. Each Team Penalized 85 Yards. Its tempo slowed by innumerable penalties, it wasn't the kind of ontest which would make the average ticketholder think of the three bucks it had cost him to get in as a bargain. Each team was penalized 85 yards, and had not many of the penalties been refused the total would have been far heavier. For long stretches of the afternoon it seemed there was a handkerchief on' the turf on almost every play. More than once the crowd booed as if to say to the officials, "Aw, come on, and let the kids play the game." In the fourth quarter, California's Jack Swaner caught a lat eral pass from Bob Celeri and scooted 65 yards to what looked to be the most spectacular touchdown of the day. It was called back because the Bear backfield was said to have been illegally in mo tion. There were many other lesser instances of penalties nullifying gains. Both teams were repeatedly offside or in motion and we suppose the officials didn't like it any better than the crowd liked their constant whistling. Nevertheless, Messrs. Joseph Fleming, referee; Alan Williams, umpire; James Armistead, head linesman, and Orin Landreth, field judge, were anything but outstanding in their work. Releree Conlused on KIckof I Rule. Fact is, they got into difficulty at the very start when Jerry Hennessey, kicking off for Santa Clara, put two successive boots out of bounds. The rule is clear that when such an event takes place the receiving team is to get the ball on the kicking team's 40 yard line. But Mr. Fleming, former UCLA fullback, apparently, didn't know it. Anyway, he put the ball down first on California's 40 line, then moved it to the 50. Only when the California side of the house started howling for its due did he put the ball where it belonged on the Santa Clara 40. As it turned out, Hennessey's two out of bounds kickoffs were a tremendous opening boon to the Bears. Two plays later or just fifty-eight seconds after the contest had gotten under way California had a touchdown. George Fong. Chinese-American right halfback, from San Francisco, handled the ball on both plays. The first time he hit left guard for no gain. Then he took a hand pass from California's T formation quarterback, Dick Erickson, and clouted right guard. Behind the key blocking of Ronald Sockolov, another San Francisco boy, the pride of Chinatown this time went all the way 40 yards. Paul Keckley's try for point was missed, so, when Santa Clara, aided by two pass interference penalties, came along to score a touchdown and kick the placement near the end of the first quarter the Broncs enjoyed a momentary 7-6 lead and things actually looked dark for the Bears. Recovered Fumble Starts Broncs. Santa Clara's short lived rally got its start when Vern Sterling recovered a fumble by Cal's Johnny Graves on the Bear 43 yard line. .All kinds of crazy things happened after that. Hennessey dropped a pass from Al Martin and then caught one for a 15-yard profit. Hall Haynes, Santa Clara's best runner, hit for four yards, but then the Broncs were penalized 15 yards for holding. The whistles were really working now. Billy Sheridan, T formation quarterback, in for Martin, threw a pass intended for Don Keck. It wasn't caught, but the officials ruled interference on the part of Cal's Billy Main and gave Santa Clara 11 yards and a first down on the 29. The Broncs next dared Cal's big, tough forward wall and in three downs Bill Prentice, Sheridan and Dick Bauer lugged the ball to the 19. Then Sheridan fired another pass. It was meant for Ellery Williams, but like its predecessor it went uncaught. Again the officials ruled interference, Fong being the offender this time, and it was a first down for Santa Clara on the Bear 10. Two more penalties were to follow. Cal got hooked five yards for offside and Santa Clara was nicked the same for backfield in motion. Finally though, Haynes, who had previously made 6 yards through right guard, went over from the one-foot line, and Guy Giacopuzzi, Santa Clara's fiery haired center, made it count for seven by booting the extra point. New Cal Team Turns the Tide. Santa Clara's hopes were raised sky high, naturally, but after that Waldorf threw an entire new team on the field and the contest rapidly became one-sided. The Bears scored twice in the second quarter for a 19-7 edge at the half, and added to their ample store of points by reaching pay dirt in each of the final two periods. Both of Cal's second quarter touchdowns were scored by Dave Hirschler, left end. To begin with, he ran away from Santa Clara's Vern Hare to catch a 30 yard pass which Job Celeri, the kid from Fort Bragg, had thrown into the end zone. Then he fell on a loose ball which Cal's George Fong had fumbled just as he was about to cross the Bronco goal line on a 5 yard rush through right guard. In the third quarter. Swaner ran 16 yards through right guard for a touchdown after Herb Poddig, a guard from Daly City, had retrieved a Bronco bobble on the 25, and in the final stanza Dan Begovich, a swift moving halfback from San Francisco's Galileo (Continued on Page 2fi, Col. fi) h:- tek .wr AMm I y ..-v.- V 1- . i ,tf H-'i 7 -1 V s-'.l ' $ !

Lynn Happy OverDebut By Bob Brachman MEMORIAL STADIUM, BERKELEY, Sept. 20. Lynn Pappy" Waldorf thinks he s go ing to like it at California. Huge beads of perspiration rolling from brow it's quite a job for "Pappy" to pull his 280 pounds up the fifty odd rows to the dressing quartersthe new University of California football coach beamed from stem to stern after his Bears had whipped Santa Clara's Broncos to a fare well this afternoon. "Needless to say, we're well pleased. I'm very, very happy and I think the kids are, too. We needed this first one and we got it." Waldorf was set to continue but, from outside, came the familiar chant of California rooters. "We want 'Pappy','' they boomed, "we want 'Pappy'." Wal dorf, his huge jowls chewing on big, black cigar, wouldn't go out on the balcony from where other California coaches have made famous speeches, until he had grabbed Rod Franz, the for mer Galileo High School star who captained the Bears today. "Pappy" was short and to the point. PRAISES CAL SPIRIT. "I want to say I've seen many schools play football, but never have I seen such spirit as that at California," he told the massed rooters. "I'm coaching a grand bunch of kids and we're darned proud of them. We made (Continued on Page 25, Column 5) Football Scores PACIFIC COAST California 33, Sanla C lara 7. r al Ramhlera ft".

Kickoff is at 2:30 p. m. The Yanks, once beaten in All-America Conference play, are heavy favorites to sideswipe the 40ers, who will be striving to stretch their winning string to an unbroken four. Only defeat slapped on the Yanks was by the Buffalo Bills in an early season game. In that one, the Big City Slickers underrated their upstate cousins and were baffled and tricked by the faking of Quarterback George Ratterman, an ex-Notre Dame hand. The 49er job today will be to outscore Spec Sanders, tailback in the Yankee single wing, and Buddy Young, fullback, the well known Mr. Lightning. Sanders beat the 49ers by sheer individual brilliance twice last year. Young, who starred at Fleet City, did not lose cast by his Rose Bowl performance for Illinois against UCLA. Wingback is Lowell Wagner of Palo Alto and Lloyd Cheatham is the blocking back. The Yanks, coached by Ray Flaherty, have a couple of stout lines, and Flaherty insists there the battle will be won or lost. Despite Sanders and Young, the 49er backfield holds a slight edge with Frankie Albert, Norm Stand- lee, Lennie Eshmont and John Strzykalski. But that's it the whole backfield. Reserves of ex perience are lacking, which means that Wally Yonamine, the scampering Hawaiian, will get his first extended taste of gridiron fire. For that matter, the 49er line will have to do valiant duty. It, too, will have to hold its own with few rest periods. The Yanks, besides Sanders and Young, have slasing ends; 240 pound tackles in Nate Johnson and Derrell Palmer and powerful guards. But they haven't a Frankie Albert and this game today seems to be jtne built for Albert's slickness wnh the ball, passing skill and play calling legerdemain. Frankie, who can rise to great heights, could seize control of the game and steal victory right away from the Yankees. Albert could also provide the surprise element in the game. He is fast perhaps the fastest man on the squad and his run ning is more and more being worked into the 49er offense. Albert, from any angle, is the man of the hour today. And if the 49nrs win this one, it will be a personal triumph for him. Pns. I.TH I.I. It III. I, II I I, III I. 1.11 It Hit I.

Mary's Gaels in their initial 1947 outing in the Emeryville baseball park. VVedemeyer, however, came up with a severe chest, cold yester day. Coach Jimmy Phelan said Herman would make his appearance in the game, though he prob ably wouldn t feel much like play ing. The opposition will be afforded by Portland University's Pilots, under Hal Moe, the former Ore gon State quarterback, and, while it doesn't figure to develop into much of a contest, virtually all of the park's 19,000 permanent and temporary seats are expected to be filled for the 2:30 p. m. kickoff. Phelan hadn't, as of last night, decided whether it would be the regulars or a second string that would be on the field at the outset. When Herman does perform it will once more be with the as sistance of little "Spike" Cordi-cro, who apparently hasn't lost any of the touch that made him one of the Nation's great little men before he left Moraga to serve eighteen months in Uncle Sam's service. Best of Moe's backfield hands, according to best authority, is Danny Christiansen from Jersey City, who can run and throw with better than average success. In the event Phelan does de-side on a second string it will probably include: Left end. Johnny Johnson: left tackle. Joe niii.'iii, irii kii.iu, i.ivtte mown; anin.

By Bob Brachman. Rivals Pay Tribute To Waldorf's Team Phelan, Schwartz, Erdelatz Impressed By Potential Bear Power in First Game By Harry Borba MEMORIAL STADIUM, BERKELEY, Sept. 20. It Is the studied impression of rival coaches and paid scouts that California has gained bv acquiring Lynn Waldorf, both in the weight of his hulking bulk and in his ability to teach football and organize boys into teams. Coaches and scouts, who see more in a game than do other humans, sometimes are inclined to the hypocritical way. If they say a squad looked bad, the other guy uses their remarks to build a fire against the day the teams meet on the greensward. On the whole, however, the men we ran down In California's sweltering press box after the Bears had smothered Santa Clara, 33-7, seemed genuinely impressed by California's power, ability to go inside or out, and ability to throw the football. In short, all of the ingredients for gridiron stability, if not for greatness, were displayed by the snarling Bears under new leadership. Said James Michael Phelan, whose Galloping Gaels meet the Bears two weeks hence: "When Waldorf gets his firt team organized, California Is , going to be tough to beat. I think Lynn was smart in dividing his best players into two teams and using them in units for the first game. "He found out which men belong up on Number One and I have no doubt he'll have them up there by the time we meet. "His attack is the typical Chicago Bear T but it has a lot of power in it. There wasn't much deception and fanciness today but the elements are there. After all, the Bears were playing their first game. "I thought Celeri shaded Erickson in passing and as a field general and that Muir was excellent on defense. Jensen has both power and speed and his punting and passing leave nothing to be desired. "Waldorf has done a good job." Trolan Scout Praises Cal Highly. Roy "Bullet" Baker, University of Southern California scout, was as near to being enthusiastic as it is possible to get about a rival team. "This is early season, remember. California has a lot of good men who haven't arrived yet. But they'll be along in a hurry. "I could see things through my glasses that indicate continued Improvement. , , "That Jensen is as good a back as I have seen in a few years outside of Lloyd Merriman, of Stanford. "Hirschler looks like a great end. Erickson and Celeri both indicate they'll make fine quarterbacks. "California has a definite lift this year over the Bears of old who made defense their principal 'business. "Santa Clara was clearly outmatched. It will be another year before Casanova's kids really get rolling. They've got it too, but they were outweighed and outmanned today." Marchie Schwartz, whose Stanfords meet the Golden Bears in the season's finale, declared: "This California team is a compliment to Waldorf's organizational ability. The team as a whole played intelligent, aggressive football. live games from now they should be quite a squad. "Celeri looked like a good passer and Jensen is a great all-round back. The linesmen are far too numerous and good to be singled out." Eddie Erdelatz, former St. Mary's College end and now flanl; coach for the Navy which plays California next week, was visibly impressed. He refused to be jarred from his opinions. He said: "California looked very good. Their down field blocking is excellent. Defensive line play was outstanding, too. "They should have had a couple more touchdowns, but they dropped passes in the open. In another week, California will be ready and we'll be in for lots of trouble. "Waldorf was smart shifting Jensen and Graves to fullback, where they can run inside and outside. They pull you in and then they go out. And when you go out they hit you in the middle, "We haven't got a great team just because we scared Army in the big one last year. We have lost several of those stars through graduation and resignations. California is much bigger than our boys. You know we get the youngsters and they're not as big or ma-ture as the Bears. We're going to be in for it." Ingredients There, But Game Ragged. Strictly from our own view (as if we had been asked) we never have seen a more ragged opener. The ingredients are there, as the coaches and scouts pointed out, but why two outfits should go offside so much, send backs in motion so often and otherwise transgress the rules is beyond our understanding. After all, they had three weeks to prepare and that is about normal time for any squad. California's low charging line is murderous. End play was generally outstanding. But Waldorf hasn't yet imparted any slick business to the Californians. The same old California power wheels. Downfield it is beautiful. It takes hours and hours of the minutest work to slick up the T like Shaughnessy had it. Now that Waldorf knows his men, probably he'll start building bafflement. Mississippi Upsets Ky. OXFORD (Miss.), Sept.. 20. (AP) Rifle-armed Charley Con erly teamed with big Barney Poole, former Army end, today to give Mississippi a surprising 14 to 7 victory over Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference opener. A pleased homecoming crowd of 18,000 saw the aroused Rebels avenge a 1946 defeat by scoring a third period touchdown after the two teams had matched markers in the opening quarter. (.FFfrlAI.
