By SPICK HALL
Four thousand students of the University
of Pennsylvania, confident In tho belief that
their gridiron heroes would leave Ferry

Boh Folwell' team to the little college town
In Michigan, the Red and Blue will return
triumphant over the Yoalmen.
While there were only 200 Venn students
that accompanied tho team on tho Penn
sylvania special, those who remained at
home did their part to make the team feel
that they are backed by tho entire student
body. Seldom han a Venn team gotten
kucIi a send-off. An hour before the train
was scheduled to pull out, alumni and
friends of tho university crowded Into tho
terminal. The throng wns bo great when
tho ntudents utid the team arrived that n
phalanx of husky etudentn had to make n
lane through tho human sea to allow the
members of the team utid those who were
going to Michigan to get to the gates.
Ah Captain Mathews, Berry, Miller,
Bryunt and other stars of tho team were
spotted, the cheor lenders, who were
perched on top of the Iron grating at the
gates, led tho rooters In giving nlno pro
longed "ralia" for the Individuals on the
team. Between theso demonstrations of
loyalty by tho students, the big band that
had headed the procession Into tho city
crashed out tlio well-known college, airs
with an occasional popular number Inter
polated. Befora tho crowd dispersed, tho train'
bearing the Penn warriors steamed out of1
the terminal, due to arrive In Detroit- to-'
morrow morning. The team and students,
will, stop BttheCadllhie Hotel.. Jiupaat

Tomorrow morning Folwell will content
himself with a meeting at the Cadillac
Hotel, when he will do some verbal coach
ing. In the afternoon the members of the
team will go to the Country Club and In
dulge In signal practice. According to the
plans the team will leave Detroit at 11
o'clock for Ann Arbor.
Tho run Is Just an hour. The majority of
the students will go to Ann Arbor on a fleet
of special Vpsllantl trolley cars. After tho
game both students and team will go back
to Detroit and get the train for home at
9 o'clock, arriving here Sunday.
Coach Bob Folwell, along with tho mem
bers of his team and the students. Is con
fident that the game with Michigan this
year will be won by his team, although he
made no such rash prediction. While wait
ing for the train to pull out, Folvvoll re
marked: "I am confident that our fellows
are going to play tho best game at Ann

OLD ECONOMIC CONFLICT
WASHINGTON, Nov. 1. Coutlonlng
against Irresponsible talk at this time about

tion "until very careful study of the whole
problem has been made," The Idea that
the United States might nave to come to a
food dictatorship, like England and Ger
many, he refused to consider seriously.
The Secretary laid that many of (he
causes for the present high prices of food
products were very simple, but the prob

"For Instance, on the face of It," he
said, "the thing that Is needed Includes
hundreds of millions of bushels of grain
and dozens of millions of animals which
we haven't got"
One of the bases of the food shortage
und contingent high prices, he declared, wus
the fact that all crops In the country last
season were short.
"At the same time the people of the coun
try, more prosperous than ever before, with
bigger wages and bigger profits than ever
before, demand more and better things."
The Secretary Intimated that the high
price situation simmered down In the main
to the old law of supply and demand with
the supplies this time smaller and the de
mand greater. He said the problem was
a world-wide one. and that It was idle to
conjecture what the Government could do
