The unprecedented season, just

country this season by either college,

honor is added the distinction of hold-
ing all opponents scoreless, and not
having its twenty-yard line crossed
during the entire season.
“Seventy-five hundred fans, who
packed the Catholic club field Thurs-
day afternoon to see Old Man Foot-
ball bow himself out for the year,
are satisfied that the claim of coach
Snavely to the prep school title is not
an empty boast. The fact that Belle-
fonte Academy is playing out of its
class was proven conclusively.
The final score of the game was 61
to 0. The St. Thomas’ squad suffered
a defeat, but not an ignominious one.
They were administered a sound
trouncing. They were outweighed,
outplayed and outclassed, but not dis-
graced. The two teams cannot be
mentioned in the same breath.
The game at the Catholic club field
Thursday afternoon was an appropri-
ate climax to the season. It was one
of the best games seen there this sea-
son, because it took to Scranton a
team which has mastered the art of
football and which has perfected each
play so as to defy every foe and to
flaunt all criticism.
For an instant in the first quarter
it looked very much as though the
Tommies would smash the scoreless
record of the Centre County Moun-
taineers. The purple and white squad
was struggling on the thirty-yard line.
Clifford stood back and tried for a
field goal. A few inches separated
the ball from the post, but these few
inches saved Bellefonte’s record.
At no other time in the game was
Bellefonte threatened. The Tommies
fought hard and well, but it was-a los-
ing battle. The scoring was started
by Bellefonte in the initial moments
of the battle, and the offensive was
continued throughout. Each quarter
saw at least two touchdowns; three
were scored in the first.
The playing of the Bellefonte team
was of a calibre as never ‘seen before
in the coal regions. The Centre Coun-
ty Mountaineers seemed to have an
unlimited supply of plays at command.
The aerial attack was such as defies
description, Hood and Whitmore, the
two Bellefonte halfbacks, sailing the
oval for forty and fifty yards with
the trick plays and the line plunging.
was of major college variety. It is
no wonder that Syracuse, Notre Dame
and Pitt are making bids for the mem-
bers of the Bellefonte team.
Hill, Bellefonte fullback, had three
touchdowns in the game. Captain
Guarino had two and Whitmore drew a
deuce; James and Buyney, who was
substituted in the second quarter for
Rooney, rangy and super-intelligent
quarterback, each had one.
‘Whitmore and Hood, halfbacks, did
most of the goal kicking, the former
making four placements and the lat-

Church Services Next Sunday
The Rev. Sylvester W. Beach D. D.,
of Princeton, N. J., will have charge
of the service in the Presbyterian
church, both morning and evening,
! Sunday, December 7th. Although Dr.
Beach was closely connected with
Bellefonte many years ago, as an in-
structor at the Academy, and later
married into one of its best known
families, his prominence in the work
of the church since that time has giv-
en him but few opportunities for con-
tinuing his early friendships here, his
visit Sunday being the first in twenty
years. Dr. Beach has but recently re-
turned from an important church mis-
sion to Europe, which required him to
visit fourteen countries.
