Sophomores Boost California
Gridiron Prospects For 1940

(Continued from Page 1)
a powerful frosh outfit coming up,
a gang of yearlings that dropped
,dhay one decision in five contests
last~ season. Among these newcomers
is the California backfield hope, a
big kid with a big name, Jim Jurko-
vich. * Two years ago, "Jumping Jim"
was to the Far West what Harmon
'and DeCorrevont were to the middle
states, a quintuple threat sensation
i the Fresno prep school divisions.
He'll open the game Saturday at the
right half post.
McQuary Or Elmore
What makes the picture even
brighter is that across the way will
be a tried and tested performer, pis-
ton-legged Orville Hatcher, one of
the strongest running backs on the
coast. Hatcher, they tell us, has
{only one real gridiron weakness. His
passing has been far from satlsfac-
tory'
Filling out the backfield will be
Jack McQuary, a 193-pound hard-
.xunning fullback from Los Angeles
and either Bill Elmore, a rugged
Long Beach lad, or veteran Glen
Whalen at the signal-calling post.
Dave Queen, who was out last year
with a broken .leg, is back in fold for
the center position. Allison has only
cne letterman returning at guard,
X80-pound Charley Donohoe, but
jeven that isn't worrying the Bear
followers. For at the left guard start-
ng berth will be another promising
Sophomore, Tom Mason, whose 185
pounds have been shifted from cen-
ter to fill the gap.
For awhile Stub was worried about
the tackle situation. He lost Lee Ar-

toe, last year's standout via the grad-
uation route, and wasn't sure whe-
ther he could find a capable man to
use in the vacant spot.
But during the spring drills, a
speedy, aggressive ladtnamed George
Herrero did much to comfort the
situation and now appears certain
to take his place opposite hefty and
dependable Bob Reinhard, Califor-
nia's outstanding lineman.
Dunn At End
It seems' reasonably certain that'
Ray Dunn will be used at right end,
but the left flank starter is still
an uncertainty. Allison has Ted
Staffler, a veteran, and Jack Leid-
holt, a rapidly improving newcomer,
to choose from.
The Golden Bears are in excellent
shape. That much is certain. They've
been here in school since the middle
of August, working out and training,
although official drills, the kind with
cleated shoes and padding, did not
begin until September 10 according
to Conference rulings.
Tomorrow Allison is planning a
long and strenuous practice session ,
for his grid ders. He's stressing a pass
defense against the aerial bombard-
ment that is expected to flow from
Toni Harmon's potent forearm. And
he'll be working on a passing attack
of his own.
The Golden Bears are pointing for
this opener Saturday. They'll be will-
ing to call this a successful season
if they could wallop Michigan .
and Southern California.
Be that as it may, a lot of this
talk around here sounds like the old
optimistic propaganda . . . or at
least we hope that's what it is:

Michigan Gwen Good Chance;
Gophers Rate As Dark Horse

the far north indicate that the once-

comeback trail.

that made his teams the scourge of
the nation just a few short years
back, but coming up are some highly
touted sophomores.

Minnesota will build around two
great halfbacks. George Franck and
Bruce Smith. The remainder of the
power will be supplied by fullback
Ed Steinbauer and the veteran Swei-
ger.
Better defensive work on the flanks
and a capable quarterback will put
the Gophers in the "feared" class
once again.
Bo McMillin, genial coach of, the
Indiana Hoosiers, is looking forward
to better things during the 1940 grid-
iron season, and with good reason.

is looking ahead to one of the most
vicious schedules of any team in the
country. The list includes Pitts-
burgh, Purdue, Northwestern, Minne-
sota, Cornell, Indiana, Illinois and
Michigan.
ThegBuckeyes are strong at the
tackle slots where they can count on
six lads weighing well over 210
pounds, led by Charley Maag and
Ben Dixon. As in 1939, the Scarlet
and Gray will have stars to fill the
end positions. Veterans returning
to the flanks are Clair, Hershberger,
Anderson and Williams.
Cliff Heffelfinger, distant cousin i
of the immortal "Fudge" of Yale
fame, and Pete Sayres will spell off
Howard and Nosker at the guard
posts while Claude White will be
back to handle the center job. This
gives the Buckeyes a starting line
averaging more than 210 pounds.
In the backfield, either sophomore
Charles King or Jack Graf will re-
place Frank Zadworney at right half-
back. The rest of the back field is
set with Don Scott, all-conference
last year, at quarterback and Jim
Strausbaugh, star ball toter, at left
half while Capt. Jim Langhurst will
handle the fullback duties.
With Bill DeCorrevont improving
with age and not handicapped by the
reams of publicity which he received

inasmuch as they have only one vet-
eran returning in the line. This is
Corne Aarts, tackle. They will have
two good quarterbacks in Capt. Dick
Richards and Don Kruger. DeCor-
revont will probably handle the left
half job, alternating with Hahnen-
stein, and there are three capable
candidates for the right half job. Don
Clawson will have little competition
at full.
