ROSE BOWL

Two offense-minded teams meet in finale of the lopsided series between the winners of the Big Ten and Pacific Coast Conferences

Steadiness is the keynote of the Golden Bears, a young team which young Coach Pete Elliott brings to the Rose Bowl at least a year sooner than anyone expected. The man to watch is Quarterback JOE KAPP, who operates the obsolescent split-T option the way the designer intended. Though a fine passer, Kapp lacks adequate receivers, the most useful weapon against Iowa. The Bears are most dangerous when Kapp, with his deceptively rapid, birdlike stride, breaks wide or into the open; then his ability either to retain the ball or lateral is a joy to see. Halfback JACK HART is Kapp's partner on these plays. This relatively small player is not too fast, but he makes all the plays well and tackles and blocks with the best of college backs. The Cal line will be undersized, but Guard PETE DOMOTO, a fine linebacker, and Tackle FRANK SALLY, who is strong and mobile and a fine blocker, will help offset lack of size and replacements.
