that time Rube's machine was banged

Pennsylvania's football team this after
noon put on the finishing touches, for
Its opening game with West Virginia to
morrow, by having a sharp slgnaL drill,
in which all the plays and formations the
men have thus far been taught were re
hearsed. A crowd of more than 2000 students oc
cupied tho stands In an effort to get a
line on the men who will wear the Red

Tho way the men went through signals
gave the first definite clue as to what
the line-up will be tomorrow, Hopkins

of last year, will start on tho wings,

NORTH OF PINSK FORTS
BERLIN, Sept. 24.
Field Marshal von Mackensen's army
has been forced to retreat before the Rus
sians In the region of Logoschln.
Tho Czar's forces In that district, which
Is north of PInsk, suddenly launched an
enveloping movement that put von Mack
ensen's forces In a dangerous position
and they were forced to withdraw from
the. east and northeast of Logoschln.
Mackcnsen, after capturing Plnsk, has
been driving on Minsk, a railway centra
of 100,000 population, dominating lines to
Moscow and the interior of Russia.
The War Odlce admits that strong
Russian attacks have forced Ma ensen
to reireat behind the Oginskl Canal, tem
porarily, abandoning his attempts to
reach the Vilna-Rovno Railway.
Today's report of the General Staff also
admits -a minor victory for the Russians
at Vilelka. While the retreating Russians
were proceeding along tho Llda-Petro-grad
railway they turned upon their pur
suers and. In the fighting which followed,
took several cannon.
The official report claims further suc
cess for Field Marshal von Hlndenburg
before Dvlnsk and for Prince Leopold of
Bavaria farther to the south. It an
nounces the recapture of tho villages Of
Ros and Strlgge.i together with more posi
tions before Dvlnsk. The Germans took
1000 more prisoners.
Prince Leopold's army has broken tho
resistance of the Russians along Its en
tire front, the report states. It has now
reached the Servetch River district.
