THE DOPE: The Bruins, already thin on experience, suffered seriously by the loss of their seniors for a half season. Coach Red Sanders has spread his veterans carefully, allowing himself an equal ration of maturity for each half of the season at key spots, but this makeshift arrangement still leaves UCLA weak. The picture is further complicated by the desire of all the seniors to play against Stanford in the seventh game, leaving UCLA woefully weak for its opening games against Utah and Michigan. Like USC, UCLA has not repented its sins so much as it has sought vengeance on Stanford, the only school which did not vote for amelioration of the penalties on their players. They take the attitude of the prisoner at the bar who wants to "get" the judge—and UCLA may just do it too.
