Smashing Attach Behind Loms Brilliant Punting; Gain Prevents Possible Score By TflEON WRIGHT. CALIFORNIA'S Golden Bears swept upward into the gridiron heavens yesterday higher than they have been at arty time since the "Wonder Teams" and they did it off the magic toe of Benny Lorn and the cracking shoulders of a squad of fighting fools. A football "Battling Nelson," stood toe to toe before a stadium of 80,000 people, and. battled it out with the strongest team in the south 'and its galloping ace, "Dynamite Don" Williams a team that southern critics had said was unstoppable. Beat Backers Relieved As Trojans Pass By PHIL RAY. THERE are close to 80.000 sore throats today as a resulf of California's hec--tic battle with the Trojana of the University of Southern California. In spite of the fact that there was no score recorded, tks din that filled the gigantic California Memorial Stadium would do credit to any Big Game. . There "were a few bare spaces in the great squad, probably a thousand seats in all, but the crowd on Tightwad hill easily brought the crowd to 80,000. as , The Trojans lacked a good passing attack and Californlans took hearh every time the warriors of Troy forced their way Into Bear territory and then resorted to passes. If "Dynamic" Don Williams had continued his running playa at the' flanks, and his cut backs through the. center of the Bear line, the results might have been different. a In mldfleld, Williams and Saunders broke through repeatedly for gains, but within the California 86-yard line, 'the Trojans altered their attack and attempted to. gain via the air route, with little or no sac- a a There'were Instances of ragged tackling on the part of "Nibs" Price's men, but on the whole, the Trojans, and Williams especlaiiy, were hit 'hard and often. Williams took a terrible beating all through the game and time out was called a dozen ' times to enable On black-haired Trojan Mercury to regain his composure. a Benny Ixm, besides his ball carrying, helped the Bears out of several tight places with his punting. On every eicha.ngc, California gained yards, far Jess Bibbs add Williams doni booted the ball forty yards. One of Loin's kicks especially made the California rooters breathe easily once more. With the ball on the Bear 85-yard line. Ixim sent a spiral over Williams, head that traveled 6." yards over the goal line. It was a 78-yard kick counting the distance Ixim stood behind the line of scrimmage. .... a Lorn, too, played a whale ot a game on the defense. Lloyd Thomas will vouch for. that Thomas received, a short pass from Williams and waa pit so hard and ao quickly by "Bending Bennah" that he lost a yard on the pas. Lorn hit him full (Continued on Page 3-D) And after taking everything tha Trojan power plan had, without flinching, the Bear smashed back and.lt smashed so hard that only the crack of the timer's pistol, ending the fray, saved this Trojan power machine from the wOTSt upset it has suffered in years. California played better football and harder football than the Trojans did in the last half, an when the game ended it was not a Trojan, but it was Irvine Phillips ot California whb slammed his head-gear to the ground and stamped angrily from the field. "Nibs" Price proved himself a football Napoleon yesterday. He met every shot Howard Jones had with a de-' fen.se as carefully prepared and as effective in the savage tackling of bis Bear players, aa any defense local fans ba,ve seen for many seasons; and when the Trojans had exhausted themselves In marches that stabbed brilliantly into the . CaUfornia line and then feU flat whenever they became dangerous, bis counter attack opened and was halted, both times by the gun at half-time and at the end of the game. It was an unbeatable combination of (he toe of Benny Lorn .and the most savage, relentless tack ling California has done In years, that swept aside every Trojan threat Just when it seemed to bo on Its way to the goal line. Three times during the game tha Trojan tackle attack looked aa though It had found its stride, and the southern cohorts, were roaring for a score, and on every occasion California's tackles and ends closed in on the attack and hammered Williams, Saunders and Duffleld back on their heels. And when the split tackle offensive failed and the Trojans resorted to the air a weapon that bad beaten 'the St. Mary's team a week ago, when the manning attack failed, the Trojans fonnd the California backfield covered like a circus tent, and their whole aerial offensive wilted under the ground covering habits of Benny Lorn, Barr and Roy Blegels. Southern California, had only (Continued on Page 3-D) Western Grid ' Crowds Exceed Eastern Fans TK football crowds are any Intti-cation of football ability, me Weat has supplanted ' tbe East aa gridiron skill. While Harvard and tbe Army played yesterday before a rapacity crowd of 54,000, tbe University of Southern California and the California Bears staged their per-formanre before 80,060 fans, pitf tbe usaal crowd on Tightwad bill and it's not the big game either California baa been watcbed aa every game this year by crewds of 40.000 or more. 1 1 a
