Everybody knew, ,at least every feml-'

boys, ducking Ipw, ran out on the field
and showed themselves tp the 4000 crit

The panhandle State's gridiron repre

FRANKLIN FIELD. Sept. 25. Penn
sylvania opened the football season of
1&15 this afternoon, defeating the West
Virginia after a hard-fought battle by
the score of 7 to 0.
With the exception of the first period.
It was an evenly but fiercely fought fight.
The Quakers won because they were able
to hit the West Virginia's defense some
smashing blows the minute they got
possession of the ball.
A march from the middle of the field In
eight plays netted them their only score
at tho very beginning of the game. They
were not again dangerous until the last
minute of play, when Berry's attempt at
a goal from Held was blocked.

West Virginia, being a new opponent on
the Quakers' schedule, had the Penn
coaches guessing as to its strength
Sol Mctzger, when his team reached the
field, took occasion to allay the Idea that
it was as formidable as predicted.
In particular, Metzger was anxious to
correct the Impression that Chenoweth,
bis quarterback, was tho former Lehigh
star of that name. The two men, how
ever, are cousins.
The West Virginia team was weakened
by the loss of Captain Leathcrwood." The
Virginia's captain was Injured playing
baseball during the summer, and was
unable to start.
Tho first sign of a football team was
the Pennsylvania second eleven which
dashed on the field to the accomparjment
of cheering from the Quaker undergrad
