The tackling of our team was generally

showed good work. Dashill, Rafferty and

Notwithstanding the opposition displayed
by the students in general of the two col
leges, the foot-ball teams from Bucknell and
State College met on the latter’s grounds on
Thanksgiving day. We are glad to be able
to say that much of the old sore was healed
by this game, which was one of the pleas
antest and most friendly games that has yet
been played between these two institutions.
We liope that this will pave the way for a
complete reconciliation, so that in future
other games may be arranged. The time for
commencing the game was bulletined 10 A.
M., but on account of several of the players
being late it was 11 o’clock before play was
called. Capt. Allen, of Bucknell, won the
toss, and chose the ball, while Capt. Mock,
of State College, took the west goal.
Play commenced with the v trick, which
gained Bucknell five yards. Then followed
four downs without a gain of five yards, and
State College took the ball. Foster carried
it some distance towards Bucknell’s goal, and
McLean a little further. For about fifteen
minutes very close playing was done by both
teams. McLean then received the ball, and
running around the left end of Buckncll's
line, and by good guarding, eluded every one
and scored the first touchdown for State
College, Mitchell converted this into a goal
—Score, 6 to o.
Bucknell again started off with the v trick,
but did not go far. Fbrced to kick the ball
or lose it on four downs, it was passed to
Horter, who sent it flying over the heads of
both teams into Mitchell’s hands, who re
turned it to Bucknell’s twenty-five yard line,
Here it stayed until time was called, although
Bucknell made several runs and dashes, only
to be forced back again, Time, 45 minutes.
State College opened the second half with
the V trick, which gained them some twenty
yards. They soon lost nearly all this by the
good tackling of the Bucknell men, when the
ball was passed to Foster, who ran around
the right end of the line, and by his own ef
forts, made the second touchdown for State
Mitchell again kicked a goal.
Bucknell again led off and gained ten
yards by a splendid run by Horter through
the centre of the line, coming nearly being
successful in making a clear run, but was
stopped by Aull, after an excellent spurt.
Time was soon called, with the ball near the
centre of the field. Scere, 12 to o in favor
of State College.
