other clear day. the management Is
looking for a record orowd. Coach
Smith has been putting on a head of
steam to run the steam-roller over
the visitors In ruthless fashion.
At last night's practice both Bill
and JCohlman were on the field fol
lowing the practico, and becoming
familiar with the new. plays. but
neither player 'was In uniform. It is
probable that both will appear in the
lineup.. Lauster and Arnold are also
depended on to play an important
part In the game with the Coal Bar

band lender will make their first

Principal Charles B. Fager, Jr., re
turned yesterday from tHe Adams
county fruit belt where he saw more
than 100 of the Tech boys located in

their work of harvesting the largo
crop of apples. The principal reports
that apples are very plentiful and
selling at a low rate. Ten of the
boys went to Camp Waynesboro, near
that place. They nro living at a farm

Ty Cobb Ready to. Face
Gas and Flame Battery
Ty Cobb, world's greatest hero in
baseball, took a flying leap into fur
ther fame yesterday when he signed
ui to enter Camp Humphreys, Va„
having been commissioned ; n the
chemical war-fare service, most dan
gerous of all. Cobb has faced every
kind of battery there is in the Na
tional game but he will be up against
something new this time.
Gas-and-flame soldiers usually go
into action ahead of the attacking
waves of infantry. The flame men
carfy tanks on their backs and ad
vance against the enemy x under cover
of artillery barrage, squirting flames
of liquid fire from nozzles attached to
tanks of the fluid whicjj they carry
on,their backs. The gas men, when
advancing to the attack, carry a sack
of gas-filled bombs which they hurl
into the ttvnclies and dugouts after
the fashion of grenade-throwers.
When the wind is right gas offensives
other than those in which shells are
used, are launched by burying gas
tilled drums in front of the sectors
to be so attacked and loosing the
deadly fumes when the wind' direc
tion and atmospheric conditions are
most favorable. The preparation of
such offensives involves so much
labor that they are rarely resorted
to nowadays especially in view of the
fact that if the enemy learns of
them in advance his troops put on
their gas masks or arc removed from
the front lines until the attack is
over. 4 •
Training experts are predicting to
day that Cobb will never be the same
star after he goes through this ser
Cobb won't ha:} his speed. Ho
would have lost some of that, any
way. He may nor have the same
nervous energy, the gas service, as
said, being one is rifted espec
ially trying on men's nerves. In his
caje, and in the cases of other high
ly strung athletes, there will be a
reaction that wid unfit them for
baseball more than any mere phy
sical deterioration.
Cobb is 32 years old and h'e-is bid
ding good-by to the game as the star
of stars. In 191S he could do most of
the things that ho did when he was
21. in a year when he gave an all
time all-round performance with ex
treme speed ess.-niial to most of this
comeback, then he certainly must be

for two hours to friends of men men

residents of that county, that the con

judge would be interest in the social

and in the spiritual welfare of the
people. ' He said that he would also

Military Restrictions Cancel
Game but Penn Will Open
With League Island
No university in the country will
have livelier football this season
than Old Penn, which opens on Sat
urday with the League Island eleven,
coached by Hyron Dickson, ex-Penn
star and coach. This was the game
scheduled for Franklin and Marshall
which had to cancel by reason of
military requirements.
The sea soldiers should prove
worthy opponents for Iho Red and
BJue, as their personnel contains a
number of former collegiate stars, i
not a ftnv of whom were of All-
American caliber in their day. Wein
stein, the former Dickson star;
Pete and Charley Garlow, the Car
lisle lineman, and "Tom" Dough
erty, of Penn, are a few of the playp
ens that will cavort about Franklin
Field on Saturday in marine uni
All the other games, those with
Bucknell on October 12, Swarth
more, October- 19; Lafayette, No
vember 2, and Georgia Tech on No
vember 16, are sure. A missive from
Captain Beazley, of the Bucknell S.
A. T. C., was,received yesterday and
confirmed the date of October 12
with Penn.
The Army ruling in regard to
overnight trips will not affect Buck
nell for the trip from Lewisburg can
be made on the day of the contest.
Captain Beazley, who is a Penn
graduate, class of 1915, is enthusias
tic about the game between his
proteges* and his Alma Mater and is
doing all in his power to pave the
.way for the staging of it.
Because of the Students' Army
Training Corps' rulings that no col
lege team may take an overnight
trip during the month of October,
the Pittsburgh contest, sceduled for
October 2ii, will be moved back to
Saturday, November 9.
The Pitt contest was Penn'S sole
! game away from home. At first it
was thought that a dispensation
from the terse military order in re
gard to overnight trips could be
secured, but the old slogan, "Orders
is orders." prevailed. The Smoky
City representatives take the date
formerly held by Dartmouth.
| The concellation of the game with
I the Big Green team comes as a big
| rfhock to many Penn followers, for
j tills contest was always regarded as
I one of the best of the season. How
! ever, no word as to whether Dart
mouth will have a representative
eleven has been received at Penn
yet. The same condition prevails
wi,th Cornell.

I fuel expense. They are small in size but big in heating
capacity. With very little attention your Perfection *<
is ready at all times for the living room after the fire is
fixed for the night; for getting-up time when the bed
room is still chilly. You'll find use for it somewhere
in the homo every day of winter.

kerosene—an economical fuel That means money saved But all
kerosenes do not give the same kind of results in a Perfection, It'e
n matter of quality So, to he sure of getting perfect satisfaction
from your Perfection always Insist on getting Atlantlo Rayollght
Oil. It Is so highly refined and purifier! that it gives a steady, radl
| nfing heat'without smoke, smell or sputter. Ask for it by name, f
And now Is tho best time to buy your Perfection Oil Heater. Don't
