STATE COLLETS O—U. OF P. 20.
—The game of foot ball, between our own elev
ed and that of the University of Penna., which
was played in West Philadelphia, on Oct. ist, did
great credit to our home eleven, considering the
odds that were against them. In the first place
we have to pick an eleven from three hundred,
while the University has the choice of fifteen hun
dred students; and yet pays salaries in an indi
rect way to professionals to complete the makeup
of their team; and besides this we played on their
grounds and had to battle twelve instead of eleven
men, “if the referee c ould be considered a man,’’
for his decisions intimated that he lacked good
judgment, or was devoid of that quality of justice
which should characterize a referee. A great many
friends of the college were present at the game
and showed their appreciation of the team’s work
in battling against disadvantages by cheers and
display of colors.
Among those friends of the college win were
present, were Dr. Atherton, Mr. and Mrs. Haley,
and daughter, Capt. C. W. Roberts and family,
Dr. Girvin, wifeand daughter ; Rev. ffm. Calder
and many other friends, but whom want of space
The game was called at 3-30 p. in.. The teams
lined up as follows:
Stile College. positions. Uni. ol Penna.

On Friday Oct. 27th our team started on their
second trip, expecting to play two games, one at
Kingston with the Wyoming Seminary team, and
the other at Bethlehem with the Lehigh Universi
ty team. The boys arrived at Kingston at 12
o'clock m. and after a light lunch prepared for the
game which was called at 3 o’clock p. m. Upon
lining up it was plain to be seen that our team had
the advantage in weight and later in the game
showed their superior tactics, for they played
better together during this game than in any one
previous to this, and it was encouraging to see
the backs protectingeach other while running with
the ball. The Seminary boys, although playing
with determination, were not able to get the ball
closer to our goal than the ten yard line. The
first half was of 45 minutes while the second lasted
but 30 minutes.
The team lined up as follows;
Wyoming positions. State College.
Humphreys .right end Rothrock.
Miller right tackle Morrow.
•Tetters right guard.... Fisher,
Juke centre Read.
