(AD I The University of California at Los Angeles Bruins, and the fa-,vorcd Trojans of the University of Southern California staged an other of their cross town football dog fights today before a roaring throng of 65,000 and wound up in a 7-7 deadlock as the curtain came down on the 1941 Pacific Coast Conference campaign. The tie, third in the brief history of the series, left the Trojans with a season record of two victories, six defeats and one draw. The Uclans, with a non-conference game coming up December 20 with Florida, boast four wins, five losses and this one tie. 63 YARD DRIVE. U. C. L.

Black was back in kick formation so Borges dashed in to block the punt only to find too late he had been fooled. Black, one of the fastest runners ever seen in Kezar Stadium, picked up blockers after he had swept around end and scored all by himself. It was Mississippi State's third touchdown in the first half and clinched an eventual 26-13 victory. Fhotn by San TVnnrlrn Ksam'nr.

First inkling of trouble came ! when press coop observersi noticed a familiar rocking in the Mississippi State line. Confirmation was forthcoming after the game in the dressing Allyn McKecn's Maroons were the toughest running teams-he used two elevens that have appeared in Kezar Stadium in several years. They ran straight up and swiftly behind conclusive blocking and perhaps it was their scratching, digging, rooting running that made the Dons look so bad in their tackling.

Bruce, Black and Yancey and the first downs by running were equal, nine apiece. Mr. Thilip Kearney, the student body president of the Dons, averaged 4.1 yards and Neill Sheridan, the passing quarterback, rolled out 8.8 and while "Blondy" Black outfaced both to average . 9.5 yards for sixteen carries. Kearney caught Black when he was racing for a touchdown in the fourth quarter so that you can say that Phil is faster than the blond phantom from Starkville, Miss. You can, in fact, say a lot of nice things about a San Francisco U. team that came raging from under a 19 to 0 deficit to score an instant before the first half ended. And you can say more about an eleven that trailed, 26 to 7,' and very methodically and relent lessly ground out a 76 yard touchdown, all along the ground, in the fourth period. You can say, too, that if Sheridan had fallen on the ball when he fumbled after breaking through the middle of the Maroon line for 20 yards in the first period, the result might have been different. But the Don soph tried to pick up the ball and it kept squirtjng out of reach until he and it had gained 29 yards. The ball finallv wound up in possession of Captain Bill Arnold on the Mississippi State 45 and was almost immediately converted into the second crushing touchdown. , Referee Doocd After Clipping Penalty. And you can keep repeating that the penalty called by Referee Orian Landreth when Johnston raced left end for 13 yards to the Maroon 12 in the second quarter also hurt. Landreth was roundly booed by the excited crowd of 25,000 but the Dons got tossed back to the Mississippi State 42 yard line and they finally had to relinquish the ball on downs on the 26. The penalty was for clipping, but nobody seemed to know after the game who did the clipping. Some folks thought that the Mississippi Staters should have been compelled to quit using their rocker shift, particularly since the Pacific coast has specifically outlawed the device as a violation of the sportsmanship code. The Maroons rocked often and well and they either got the Dons to move offside or left them standing flatfooted and perhaps going backward when those swift driving backs came along with the football. Regardless of these incidents, the better team won the game and the Maroons left many of the 25,000 wondering why they have been overlooked by the many bowl selection committees. They were a team without a glaring weakness, if you except their inability to boot the football over the goal line on kickoffs. They did everything else well, even to the forward pass which they threw with a peculiar kind of lob to receivers that turned quickly to playing bothered them no end to catch the ball in the open. We first, moved into the Mississippi State quarters and approached Coach Allyn McKeen. "We understand there was some question on the actions of jour linemen," we parried. "Ves, there was," answered McKeen, "but I'll be darned if I can see why. We have been using the same kind of charge for years and last season, when we were challenged in our own conference, officials unanimously agreed that It was legal. There isn't a thing in the rule book against It." At this point, Capt. Bill Arnold of the Maroons stepped up and. obviously perturbed, presented his version. "In the second quarter the officials came over to me and told me we would have to stop rocking. I told him we weren't rocking; that we were stopping a fuil second after we got set and that In our conference It was perfectly okeh. We only do It because it's a good way to rest. "Anyway, I told the referee to go over and ask the two coaches and I happen to know he did go to Cravath but ho didn't go to Mr. McKeen. "I told the roach here about it at half time and he told us to hold one extra signal in the second half." From some of the Maroon line men we learned that their quarterbacks were yelling at them to "hurry and gei set" an during the second half and that the change from the style they had been used playing bothered them no end.
