FOOTBALL. State, 50 —Allegheny, o, The game last Saturday between State’s team and that of Allegheny was nothing short of a foot race. From one end of the field to the other the teams moved about as fast as they could run. Touchdowns were made inside of twenty seconds after the kick-off. Capt. Forkum caught the ball behind the goal post and ran the full length of the field for a touchdown. Saunders made a similar run. The line had scarce ly any work to do. The game was too easy to be of any value to our team. It is all told by the remark of a Freshman on the side-line, “I would sooner drill than watch this game.” Allegheny did not have half the team of last year. A strong wind across the field made goal kicking almost impossible. The line-up: Position. Allcgheny. leathers, (Barr) 1. e Ginn Smith 1. t McQuistion White 1. g G.

The coaches seem cheerful over the prospect for next Saturday’s game. They feel confident that the team will give Eli’s men a hard game. Campbell is out of the game at end ; Dunn has not been in practice on account of his shoul der, and Barr has a bad hip. But with these exceptions the men are in good condition and are playing fast ball. Yale is working hard to get her team in shape. Nine coaches were busy on the field last week. They claim that the team is not in good condition but there is plenty of good material. Hogan, the cap tain, is not up to his standard. Shevliu has been taken from end to play at fullback, and Rockwell will probably play at quarter. Yale has a two hundred pound line to pit against ours of one hundred and seventy-five. Coach Golden says that it is usual for Yale to buck the line but that the}’ will probably try end runs more this year. The game last Saturday was as unfortunate a thing as could have happened to the White and Blue. The coaches are agreed that such a game tends to disorganize the team. Each man should have had an op ponent that would have required all his attention to handle instead of the weak opposition that allowed all kinds of loose play. A hard game would have brought out the weaknesses to be remedied in this week’s practice and made better team work possible. But with all this disadvantage the Varsity will give Yale a strong fight.

He will be at Cen ter on Saturday. At present speed is the point aim ed at by the coaches —a fast start and a quick succession of plays. Don’t put off preparation for the Williamsport game until the last minute. It is only five weeks away. There were not quite forty stu dents watching practice last Mon day evening. Was it too cold for the little boys? The College team is a good one this year. The Varsity has been kept busy to hold its own against it. Last Tuesday’s practice scrim mage w r as a hard one and the Col lege team had the best of the game. LA VIE NOTES. The 1905 La Vie Managers are gradually winding up the books of that publication.
