The Franklin and Marshall versus Dickinson
game which was to have been played on Novem
ber iSth was decided a draw.
The Dickinson versus State College game, of
November aoth, which was to have been played
at Altoona, was declared forfeited to State Col
lege, Dickinson not having put in an appearance.
'l'his decision also carried with it the expulsion of
Dickinson from the association. Dickinson
claimed that the State College had agreed to pay
expenses at Altoona and then went back on the
agreement, but it was shown that this defense on
Dickitron's part had not been made within the
legal time previous to the day set for the game,
and that Dickinson evidently had no intention of
playing, as it neglected to answer the correspon
dence relating to referees and other matters,
There was no election of officers, the rules stipula
ting that the Athletic associations of the first four
winning colleges shall choose the officers. Under
this rule the State College is entitled to the pres-
iiency, Bucknell to the vice presidency, Swarth
more to the secretary, and Franklin and Marshall
to the treasurer,

man, Carr, Shields and Collins was appointed to
