MARY'S .Wealth of Material, Much of It Untried, Will Necessitate Andy Smith Using Army of Substitutes in Saturday's Game. Voe i not unto the Berkeley Bruins an far as prospects for the coming football seaiion are concerned. A survey of the available army of 'varsity and near 'varsity material turning out daily onto tbe greensward of California Field to go through intensive drilling under the eagle eye of Professor Andrew Smith and his able corps of assistant, impresses the casual onlooker with but a single idea California has a wealth of material in all stages of development. The low of veteran stars from last year cannot be and is not denied. Certain snot? in the line and backfield combinations can be pointed out as being weaker at this time than they were a year ago. But for all that California is strong, the Golden Bean will be a good team. And It mlgnt De wen saia neree and now that no team In the vt est this year looks to have better than a good team. Super-teams are to be as rare aa the esteemed Dodo bird and onlr the pages of history will disclose "wonder teams" of any description. When the time Mimea for California to meet U. 8. r tha win truffle his feet bit, paw the air and then stamper Into battle witn tne same via Citato and probably the same old access. Bears Being Primed For Game With Saints. . All of which is not to the point at hand. With the opening ceremony, for such it must be called, with the Alumni behind them, the Bears are being primed to undertake the onslaught on the St. Mary's eleven next Saturday afternoon on the California lot. Since that memorable occasion which sent Dave Boucher down Into western football history to be hauled out as regularly as is Merkle of baseball fame, all St. Mary's alumni wnll remembering the score of 1 to 13 that Bent Red and Blue rooters tumbling Into a war nance on California field to celebrate the occasion. St. Mary's has not won from the Bears. That was back in 1917 In the days when "Doc fciiva made history by galloping 100 yards from the kickoff to a touch down. Since those days California has gone ahead to such an extent that the. St. Mary's game is regarded as merely an excellent opening game in which plays can be experimented with and new material given a baptism of fir. Plan of Action Is ; Being Mapped Out. - Such undoubtedly will be the plan of action mapped out by Andy .Bmlth Saturday. The Saints ac-, tually are not dangerous to an iu-latitution the size of California. ! Were the CaUfornla veterans al-j lowed Mo play the four quarters 'without substitutes they would un-i doubtedly be able to cause the Saints considerable grief. Indications point to the first atrlng starting and playing straight football for a quarter during which they may be looked to gain a lead, . punting to keep in St. Mary's territory and figuring to gain on line play. After that the second team, sent Into action one and two at a time, and eventually possibly the third artring man, will Jbe given an opportunity and as many of these are untried men in bo far as va,r-Hy play, is cJncerned, too much in the way of scoring cannot be expected. i First String Lineup I -Still Unsettled. As the first string Bruins loomed In practice against the Freshmen ",Jast night Hufford and Shaffnit at 'ndi, Beam and Newmeyer tackles, Perry and Saundby guards. Horrell enter, King quarter, Spalding and Nichols halves and Witter full, is the tentative combination. Caey, figured a regular running mate for Perry at guard, la out on a ,tninor strain to a leg but may be ent In Saturday. The quarterback problem Is probably the most int stlng to watch of any confront c Andy Bmlth. At present Vole King, profiting by a year of experience With the Olympic Club, looks to have a shade over Carlson and Imlay. members of last year's freshman team. All three will undoubtedly see section against the Saints, as will econd string men at end, Evans, Toung, Thatcher and Mell all being In the battle for a berth. No thai selections are to be looked ifor within the next three weeks, possibly a month. RODEO GUN CIAB. MARTINEZ, Sept. 27.

Before a crowd of 4000, Louis Angel Firpo, South American heavyweight opened an exhibition tour here last night with a four-round sparring match.

Kansas City Leads By Half Ball Game Although the American Association race developed Into a two-club affair a long time ago, fans of the circuit are being Interested by the struggle between Kansaa City and St. Paul. Only the , low of per. centage keeps the team from being tied, as Kansas City won 102 games and lost 61, while 8t. Paul won 10a and lost B5, giving Kansas City a percentage of .6T and St. raul .(. Maybe If "Speed" Martin was now with W. Paul, that club would be holding the lead, as "Speed" was one of their beat hurl-i last seamon.

V By tom raVtv STANFOKD UNIVERSITY, Sept. 27. What Card.' fans and coaches .have most hopedV and prayed for during the past few seasons seems now about to come true. A giant plunglsg fullback, good at any time for a few much needed yards, has been an all too obvious need down Stanford way. "The Cards lack the punch to put it over." These few words were so often epeated last year that they began like hackneyed phrases to mean nothing. But they did mean something. They meant low scores and lost games battered lines and wearied halfbacks worried coaches and despondent students. They meant football hopes too long deferred. If the Cards haven't the punch this season, It won't be because Nevers isn't good for the number of yards he Is called on to make. SCOFFERS STILLED The few scoffers who dropped In on practice yesterday did not leisurely saunter over to the freshman field to watch Husky Hunt's proteges run through their paces. All the "I-told-you-soM boys stood On the sidelines grinning from ear to ear. Nevers, without exception, gained five yards every time he took the ball Usually tt was ten and often fifteen. If there Was a hole he took fifteen no hole, ten the whole line piled up, five. When his fast starting 204 pounds hit the line of scrimmage, something had to give way. And it was only when he. got his head lower than his hips and crumpled up 'that the second line was able to stop him for less than first down yardage. If Nevers keeps on improving and doesn't get a broken bone, he will startle a few sceptics Into' open mouthed wonder. Somebody will be thinking pretty soon that Luther Burbank, who lives In Nevers home town, has been doing a little experimenting on football players. When a fullback throws a football as If it were an apple, kicks it over fifty yards on the average and hits the line for yardage every time he gets his mitts on the pigskin, somebody must have been improving on nature's work. And when he is blonde, good looking, good natured, and a "good Joe" to boot, he ought to rate as a football hero. The 192S season will make or break blonde Errtle. OTHERS IN RACE Pitted against Nevers are Strat-ton, Kelley, Solomon, Hey and Wright. Kelley weighs 196. He is not so fast as Ernie, but makes lots of yards, nevertheless. He is handicapped in that he has to, unlearn rugby and at the same time pick up what he can of the American game. In interference and straight line plunging, he is probably Nevers closest competitor. Stratton of last year's freshman team has put on many pounds and will make wonderful reserve material at worst. He may even work himself Into even terms with more experienced players because of his natural ability. Solomon played a half on the babe team last year and is particularly good as a' plunger. Hey played fullback for the freshman team in 1920. Wright played fullback for thj goofs last season until ho twisted an ankle out of shape. He is probably the least experienced of the lot but retains a good football rating on the squad. Never before in Cardinal hlstor have there been so many capab candidates for the fullback position. -Never has there been so niuch weight available, ia experience they are probably not up to -nuff, but a few more weeks under Kerr will make a considerable difference. KRIEGEit WINS BOUT. LINCOLN, Neb, Sept. 27. Adam iKrelger of Lincoln, claiming the .middleweight wrestling championship of the west, won his match with Joe Turner of Washington, D. C, last night.

SANTA CLARA, Sept. 27. With two days of light practice under their. belts, following the ams with the Davis Aggies last Saturday, the Mlsslonite Varsity yesterday started a series of workouts of the Intensive variety. ' Kienholz is reported to be well satisfied with his 11)23 eleven following the Davjs game, although considerable talk has been going the- rounds to tho effect that the Missionites should have run up a larger score than they did. Kienholz has no hopes of beating California or Stafford, but is pointed at St. Mary' Amonk Kienholz' first string men this year are several Northern California boys, most of whom hail from the bay cities. This Is in direct contrast to the teams of forme'r- years when Southern California, Oregon and Washington contributed most of the members of the eleven. Brentwood, Crockett In Three-C Finals BTRON, Sept. 27. Brentwood defeated Martinez Sunday 4 to 1 and won the championship of the second half of the Three C League. Crockett, wh'icli won the first half, will now. contest with Brentwood in a series of three games for the championship. The first game will be played next Sunday at Crockett and the second game will take place on the Brentwood diamond. If a third game is necessary, it will be played on some neutral grounds. The playing of the Brentwood nine has been sensational. Toung Roberts, a graduate last year of Liberty Union High School at Brentwood, has shown such a remarkable form in the' box that hit pitching has been the talk of the league cities. Sunday he was pitted against Dimock, who tried out in the Coast League, and Roberts held the hard hitting Martinez team to four hits. Berkeley Club To Play Olympic Team The Dlymplc club football team will play Its fourth game of the season next Sunday afternoon at Ewing Field in San Francisco, meeting the Berkeley Athletic club eleven. Justwhat kind of a game it will be is hard telling, as the Berkeleyans are new. while the Olympics have won their firsi three games. The Olympics will play the Sacramento Athletic club on October 7, and then will come the big game with the University of California on October 13. Teams Tied in Race For Western Flag The race for the Western League pennant is the warmest in history, and today finds Tulsa and Oklahoma tied for first place, wljh Howard Gregory's Wichita Club third on the list and only three games -behind them; Until about a month ago, Wichita held a good lead in the i race, but lately Gregory's forces have found the going very tough. , Tim Corrigan Named Captain 'f Of St. Mary s '.'AT a meeting of the St. Mara College 'Varsity football aqnad yesterday ' afternoon following .practice, .
