Stagg Credits Pass ...
OUT OF STOCKTON, Calif., where
one of football's grand old men is
teaching football and building char-
acter, comes an interesting observa-
tion, to wit: that the forward pass is
the outstanding contribution to foot-
ball. The man is Amos .lonzo Stagg,
who-when he coached at the Univer-
sity of Chicago-was one of a quad-
rumvirate of genuine strategists. The
other three were Doc Williams, Min-
nesota, Fielding H. Yost, Michigan
and Robert Zuppke, Illinois, and they
built grid machines which eventually
grew into million-dollar businesses
and huge stadia.
About the pass, though, Stagg
says, "It changed football from
a bruising, mass encounter into
an interesting game." Stagg in-
troduced the first big quarterback
to football. Previously only small
men ran the team, but Stagg fin-
ally assigned a 196-pounder, Walt
Kennedy, present publisher of an
Albion, Mich., newspaper, to the
signal-calling post, and the op-
posing strategy blew up, unable to
cope with his rough-house tactics.
Stagg sees no reason for the Big
Ten rule prohibiting post-season
games. "There's really no need for
such complete isolation," he opines.
"A game late in the season, especially
around the Christmas holidays,
should not interfere with scholastic
routine and would not over-empha-

Overcoming an almost overwhelm-

Alpha Tau Omega took a one-point
lead over Phi Kappa Sigma and then
staved off a desperate last-minute
rush oftheir opponents to win one
of the best games -yet seen in the
I-M speedball preliminaries by the

Phi Kappa Sigma started off with a
rush and led A.T.O. at the half 5 to
1, which lead they increased to 8 to

War Admiral Wins Race
After Five Month Rest
LAUREL, Md., Oct. 26.-(R)--Back
in the races after a five-months lay-
off, War Admiral galloped a mile and
sixteenth in 1:46 today to win easily
his "comeback" dash.
The son of Man O' War crossed
the line two and a half lengths ahead

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Oct. 26.-(P)-
Illinois' Varsity eleven, led by Jay
Wardley and Bob Wehrli, demon-
istrated new offensive power today in
scoring five touchdowns against third
'string and freshman teams using a
Michigan defense. Only in the aerial
department did . the Illini appear
weak. On defense, the Varsity re-
peatedly broke up Wolverine plays.
There will be a meeting of all
candidates for the varsity track

was Acacia which, although behind
at the half 2 to 1, speeded up their
attack on Phi Gamma Delta and,
led by Brown and Cound, scored a
decisive 6 to 3 triumph.
Perhaps the day's greatest sur-
prise was furnished by Kappa Nu,
who held Chi Psi, fraternity athletic
champions, to a 5-all tie, and for a
time threatened to register a de-
cided upset. Ed Greenwald and'Bob
Harrison were the stars for Chi Psi
and Kappa Nu, respectively. The
overtime was postponed because of

registered by the Pi Lambda Phi
nine who decisively downed Phi

opponents scoreless during the first
half, they were never threatened and,
led by Cyrus Elkes, Maurice Hoffman,
and Paul Soboroff, dribbled up and'
down the field almost at will to com-
pletely outplay the less-experienced
Phi Kap team.
The Alpha Sigma Phi-Beta Theta
Pi game was called off when neither
team showed up on playing time.
Second Cage Drill
Of Season Is Held
Brisk drills in passing, dribbling,
and ball-handling, featured the Var-
sity's basketball team's second work-
out of the season last night at the
Intramural Sports Building.
Captain John Townsend, all-Con-
ference forward last season, heads the
list of returning veterans who are
working out. Herm Fishman, Eddie
Thomas, and Leo Beebe are the other
lettermen who have reported.
Among last year's reserves who are
making a-bid for places on the team;
,are Mannie Slavin, Dick Long, Bill
Lane, and Ben Weaver. Charley Pink,
Jim Rae, and Bob Palmer, appear to
be the class of last year's freshman
cagers, while Dave Wood and Max

NEW YORK, Oct. 26.-()-When' ,
Stub Allison's Golden Bears of Cali-
fornia pushed three touchdowns over
the Southern California goal-line in
the first half last Saturday, they not
only crumbled Troy's defenses but
the last resistance of the nation's
football critics as well.
The Bears wereon top last week,
it's true, but by no such lopsided
margin as is theirs this week. Of the
57 contributing experts, all but nine
weighed in with their first-place
vote for California. As a result the
Coast Conference contenders earned
a total of 556 points, to 408 for Pitts-
burgh, which displaced Alabama as

of the remaining first-place nomina-
tions, comes the Crimson Tide, which
got none; Minnesota's gilded, if not
quite golden, Gophers, who got two,
and Yale, also with two.
These five are the same who oc-
cupied the top brackets a week ago.
The rest of the first ten, however,
includes four Johnny-come-latelys:
Baylor, which moved from 15th to
sixth;Vanderbilt, from a tie for 20th
to seventh; Dartmouth, from 18th'
to ninth, and Ohio State, from 12th
to eighth. The remaining member l
is Fordham, at No. 10.
L. S. U. Demoted
Those demoted from the company
of the elect were Louisiana State,
which skidded into 17th place as a
result of its defeat by Vanderbilt;
Northwestern, dropped out of seventh
place through its loss to the Buck-
eyes, and Nebraska and Duke, which
lost ground despite the fact they
