* When the Tech High School lads
left Harrisburg Friday afternoon tho>
carried a banner to Greensburg that
read. "We treat 'era all alike." and
when they returned yesterday after
noon they still carried the same ban
ner. only a little higher. For Greens
burg had been vanquished 39 to 0.
33 of the points coming in the Una
•The defeat of Greensburg removes
Tech's most formidable toe from ,ihe
tield for championship honors, and
all of Greensb-.rg Is back of the Tec
team for the championship of the
* United States.
In the first half Tech was com
pletely demoralized by a series of
happenings that kept the local score
down to six points. The field was
* three-fourths covered with patches of
mud that compelled the players to
stand in the mud almost ankle deep.
Tech received the kickoif and worked
the pig skin to within eight yards of
the goal when there was a fumble and
Greensburg kicked out of danger to
mid field.
On the kick Tech again fumbled,
and it was Greensburg's ball at mid
field and all of the work was in vain.
This kept Tech from scoring in the
first quarter. In the second quarter
Tech score a touchdown on a long
fcrward pass from Lingle to Beck,
that advanced the ball 30 yards. Com
fort missed the goal because of the
wet condition of the ball.
Real Football
Between halves the Tech boys
talked over the situation, and determ
ined to remedy their errors. Too
many Greensburg passes had been dan
gerous. With the beginning of the
second half, the Tech lads opened up
an offense that kept the losers al
ways on the defense, so that they
never had a chance to use many of
their forward passes. In this half,
Lingle scored once and Books and
Wilsbach tallied twice.
Lingle's score came after a run of
30-yards through the er.tiri Greens
, burg team. Wilsbach went over
the goal twice on off tackle plays,
while Books scored once on a for
ward pass and another time on a
blocked kick. According to statistics,
v. the Greensburg team gained more
ground against Tech than any other
team this year. Most of it was gained
through the use of the forward pass.
Or.ce they were within eight yards
ot the Tech goal line, but the local
lads were equal to the emergency,
and kept the goal post untainted.

Greeks Down Romans in
Annual Football Game
Harrisburg Academy had two hard
football contests Saturday. The
Greek and Romans, first and second
forms, played their annual battle.
• The Greeks won, score 13 to 0.
"Bobby" Smith, fullback for the
Greeks starred, making both touch
downs. His defensive work was of
a high standard.
Jack Bent was in e-vidence at
quarterback for the Romans. His
all around work attracted much at
tention. The Greeks and Romans
showed they knew the football game
and promise to be future greats.
The game was for the benefit of
the Junior Red Cross and a substan
tial sum was contributed, showing
the strong spirit in this work at the
In the second game the Academy
Scrubs defeated the Greystocks,

much smaller in size and lighter in
weight than their opponents. The
entire Scrub team did good work.

Had Tech been on the job, the score
1 would have been larger. The teanj
was slow in getting off passes and
seemed generally demoralized. Onca

The largest crowd ever assembled
on the Greensburg field was on hand
to see the groat inter-section-a! game,
j Tech alone nad 400 rooters, and all

' Gray. After spending the night at
I the Fort Stanwick Hbtel, the team I

I were visited by the coach ami mem- j

I where they were given hospitable j
| treatment. Local rooters engaged the !
i Latrobe band and a walk around took j

Tears the Gettysburg Line to
Pieces: Placement Kick
Starts Score
! Vackncll is celebrating to-day.
The reason is the victory Saturday
over Gettysburg, score 17 to 0. It
was not all Bucknell even the
I Lewisburg boys did win out. Gettys
i burg was prominent for three quar
• ters. The battlefield contingent play
-led better ball than Bucknell. It was
in the last quarter that Bucknell
I showed the form they should have
| demonstrated earlier in the game
! with the team they offered.
| With three minutes of play gono
in the final period Bucknell began
to fight and in five minutes more of
; play had torn the Gettysburg line
to pieces and scored a placement
kick and a touchdown. It was a
; great finish. Gettysburg went down
I with flying colors, fighting every
minute until the final whistle blew.
The crowd was the largest in the
history of this annual contest. There
, was some kicking on the part of
spectators who had paid the prices
advertised, and were asked to put
up an extra fee to get a numbered
seat. Just who is to blame for the
change in prices is not known posi
; tively. A. O. Vorse, publicity man
for Bucknell. who with J. F. Snyder,
l of Gettysburg, agreed to put two
1 prices did not know that numbered
i seats were being sold until he reach
led Harrisburg. He kicked loud and
1 long.
V. Grant Forrer, assistant super
intendent of parks, said he had no
hand in it and wanted the public to
understand that it was done without
his sanction. He added, "next year
there will be an agreement in black
and white. Harrisburg people hava
been good patrons to this game and
deserve fair treatment." The gen
eral impression prevailed that the
public should have been advised of
the change.
For three periods of the college
game on the Island Saturday, Get
! tysburg upset all the dope on the
result of her battle with Bucknell
by outplaying the Lewisburg col
legians at every angle of the game.
With the beginning of the fourth
period Coach "Pete" Reynolds in
serted "Fat" Lauster into the Buck
nell lineup for Rosenbloom, and
then the tide turned. Whether "Fat"
did the trick or not, it is a fact that
was apparent to more than one spec
tator. that with the entry of the
former Tech star, Gettysburg never
had a chance. It began to look as
if only a fluke would give either
team a score.
But just at this point "Gil" Eb
ner, last year's Tech captain, pulled
! off a 35-yard run and brought the
| bail into a position from which
j Captain "Johnny" Hendren, the for
! mer North East lad, kicked a goal
from placement, and Bucknell loolt
!ed a sure winner. But with the
! tally, Bucknell took on new hopes
and Gettysburg began to fade. Two
touchdowns were added in quick
succession through brilliant running
by Ebner, Mangan, Hendren and
Dayhoff, of Steelton.
Interest in a Gettysburg-Bucknell
battle was never keener because of
the large number of Harrisburg lads
who were starring for the two teams.
Ebner, Lauster, Bihl and Dayhoff
played for Bucknell. while "Midget"
' McGann was a substitute. It was
| the playing of the lads that brought
! Bucknell its victory.
Gettysburg presented nothing
more spectacular than the line
plunging of Adam Houtz and Sam
Phillips. This pair in the Battlefield
backiield added more than one first
down in the opening of the game,
and really made the winners look as
though they were in for a defeat.
When this pair was not hitting the
line, "Vic" Emanuel was snatching
forward passes out of the air. Cap
tain Marts at center and "Vic"
Emanuel opposing him had a bat
tle all of their own, that resulted in
a draw. It was a great game. The
better team won. and the work of
the Harrisburg lads did much to
give it the local interest that
brought 4,000 people to Island Park.

I'rbana, 111., Nov. 17. —Illinois won
a decisive victory over the Michigan
football eleven Saturday, 29 to 7,
before 14,000 rooters, the second
largest ever gathered on llinois
After holding the Illinois in check
for the first period the Wolverines'
defense crumbled.
New Haven, Conn., Nov. 17.—Af-i
ter eight long years of patient wait
ing, Princeton's cup of joy was filled
to overflowing Saturday in the Yale
Bowl, when the alert Tigers pounced
on a loose ball in the final period
and went over the Yale line with the
unexpected touchdown which broke
a 6 to 6 deadlock and gave Prince
ton a precious 13 to 6 victory, says
the New York Times.
"Add to the list of gridiron heroes
of Old Nassau, along with the Poes,
and Sam White and DeWitt, thel
name of Joe Scheerer. He it was
who won the game for the Tigers,
and this is the way he did it: Joe
Neville's lateral pass to Kempton
went wild. Scheerer, a substitute
halfback, plunged his way through
the mad scramble of Yale players,
picked up the truant pigskin and
dashed 22 yards for a touchdown.
"Insnatehing the game from the
fire, Captain Curtis McGraw's or
ange and black eleven lived up to
Princeton's tradition. Way back in
1911 Sam White scooped up a fum
bled ball and raced dtfivn the field
to a glorious victory. That was the
last game that Princeton won in
New Haven until Saturday, and this
battle was the first that the Tigers
won in the Yale Bowl. In the orange
glow of the gathered dusk, a writh
ing mass of undergraduates, togeth
er with a host of old grads, forgot
the defeats and disappointments of
the past as they snake-danced mad
ly around the Elis' sunken coliseum.
The Big Thriller
their traditional tactics of playing
ball brought forth the one great
thrill of a game which for three
periods had been devoid of any of
the spectacular features of the mod
ern open game. For three periods
the Yale and Princeton elevens had
fought out a dull contest. Line
pounded monotonously neainst line
as the two teams battled on In vain,
each trying to outlast the other in
their traditional tactics of playing
"As the Tiger tackles crashed into
| Neville, to bring him down, he at
tempted to make a lateral pass to
Kempton. The pass was a sort of a
beanbag toss, and Kempton could
not reach it. The Yale quarterback
tried frantically to get the ball, as
the Tiger forwards had sensed the
play and were bearing down on him
with a rush. The ball soared out
of Kempton's reach and hit the turf.
Spectators Go Wild
"The 60,000 spectators were on
their feet in an instant. Yale and
Princeton rooters alike were yelling
madly as the mass of players mingl
ed in one mad dash for the ball.
Blue jerseys and jerseys of Orange
and Black became mixed up in an
entanglement of arms and legs.
Player crashed against player as
they Jammed each other aside. The
soft green turf was covered with the
men who had been toppled over in
the mad desire to grasp the ram
pant ball.
As the yellow pigskin rolled along
over the 25-yard chalk mark, digni
fied gray-haired men, white-haired
women, and their pretty daughters
joined the ear-splitting shrieks of
the mad undergraduates, who jump
ed up and down waving their arms
and beseeching Tom, Dick or Harry
to get that ball.
I "It was a nerve cracking moment,
one which made every one forget
cold feet and numb hands. Would
any of these players ever pounce on
the ball? What in the world was
the matter? There was the ball
right before their eyes, why in the
world didn't some one fall on it?
The bowl was a seething caldron of
hysterica! humans. The eyes of 60,-
000 people were glued on that little
yellow leather oval as it tumbled
gaily along end over end.
The Big Hero
"Then after a few seconds which |
seemed hours there dashed badly
out of the meelee of players an!
orange and black jersey. Two or'
three Yale players blocked his path, I
but he brushed them aside. His eyes :
was on the ball and not for an in- I
stant did he take his glance from the j
pigskin. This Princeton player, like '
one possessed, wedged his way j
through the maelstrom of players, j
who were not so crazed that they
did not know what they were do
"It was Joe Scheerer. At the time
no one knew this. Everybody was
so upset, spectators and players
alike, that names meant nothing. All
that the Princeton crowd knew was
that a Tiger was on a rampage and
had broken from his lair with flash
ing eyes and gnashing teeth. A
Princeton player was running wild
through the gridiron Jungle after a
loose,ball. All that the Yale crowd
knew was that Yale was in dire dan
ger and they must act and act quick
ly, or the Tiger would devour any
thing or anybody that got n lis path.
"Scheerer now had dodged and
tore his way through all the Yale
players who tried to cross his puth.
The Princeton stands blazed with
orange flags. Not for a moment
slacking his speed, not losing a
single stride in his dash of triumph,
Scheerer bent over in his glorious
flight, picked up the ball and gal
loped along over the Yale goal line."
Fenn Team Holds Pitt to
Tie Score After Hard Fight
Philadelphia, Nov. 17.—Capt. Bert
8011, of Pennsylvania, end Andy
Hastings, of Pittsburgh, basked in
the spotlight before 30,000 football
enthus'asts at Franklin Field on Sat
urday and delivered the only points
made in the game by kicking field
goals. Their educated toes prevented
a scoreless tie and decreed that all
bets should be off when 3-to-3 fig
ures were hung up on the board at'
the end of 60 minutes of gripping
It was the first time since Penn
and Pitt have been playing that
Penn has ever emerged on even
terms with Glenn Warner's Pan
thers. The other four games were
all Pitt victories.
To Bert Bell went the credit for
keeping Penn out in front from early
in the first period until the middle
of the second period, and- from tha'
time to the finish both powerful
teams surged back and forth on the
heavy field without either being able
to put over a touchdown.

hopes of the Red and Blue cheering
section and made the majority of
the spectators wild with joy caine
five minutes after the start of play.
Haverford Ties Up Score
In Battle With Dickinson
Haverford, Pa., Nov. 17. —Haver-
ford and Dickinson battled to a 7-7
tie in a hotly contested game replete
with spectacular plays at Walton
Field this afternoon.
Except in the initial session the
Main Liners completely outplayed
their opponents, and Dickinson was
on the defensive through the major
part of the contest, but the Scarlet
and Black always lacked the de
cisive punch at the crucial moment.
Dickinson made its tally in the
opening period, when Pritchard
grabbed a long pass from Captain
Palm on the home team's 2 0-yard
line, and dashed across after a bril
liant dodging run. Seigenfuse made
a perfect punt out. and kicked the
Captain Crossman, who played his
usual brilliant game, made Haver
ford's score in the second period,
after dashing 4 4 yards on a trick
formation that caught his opponents
completely off guard. He kicked
out, and directed the ball between
the uprights for a tie score.

Mt. Union Is Again Winner;
Run Up Big Score Saturday
Defeating Lewistown Team
Mount Union, Pa., Nov. 17. —
Mount Union High School displayed
fine form Saturday and with a large
number of bewildering plays easily
defeated Lewistown High School,
score 4 5 to 0.
Lewistown put up a game fight
but the fine aerial attack of Mount
Union, from which 200 yards were
gained, was too much for Lewis
This victory makes the fourth
win for the Blue and Gold, with 186
points scored against their oppo
nents' 32. It now looks as though
Mount Union is easily the cham
pions of the counties comprising the
Middle Division of the P. R. R. west
of Harrisburg, Including Altoona.
