line. Yeckley Carried the ball in
the next three plays and the scene of
hostilities was advanced to Dickin
son’s 10 yard line. Smith carried
the ball four yards onward. McGee
made two charges and took the
oval over the line on the last try,
amid the greatest enthusiasm ever
seen at a game in Williamsport.
Saunders missed the goal. Score —
5 toO.
The fortunes of the contest shift
ed back and forth half a dozen times
in the space of SO yards, and then
State, on a sudden resolution, as it
seemed, settled down to hard work.
The ball came into State’s posses
sion on its 45 yard mark. Steady
and irresistible rushes worked the
ball to Dickinson’s 30 yard line,
where the Red and White made a
last desperate stand and forced a
punt. The ball went low and shot
into the line, where Wray got it for
State on Dickinson’s 40 yard line.
Starting at this point the Blue and
White bucked its rivals relentlessly
east, McGee doing herculean work.
A rim by McGee carried the ball 11
yards, Wray got six, and Mcllveen
three. With the ball three yards
from Dickinson’s goal there was no
restraining the enthusiastic crowd
that surrounded the players, and
Referee Young called a halt while
he endeavored to provide a proper
playing space. In the excitement
State lined up and pushed Yeckley
over for a touchdown. The score
was not allowed, however, but Mc-
Gee carried the ball over just the
same in the next play. Saunders
kicked the goal, and the score stood
lltoO. The game ended shortly
From an expert point of view it is
conceded that State outplayed Dick
inson at every turn. At all times
State showed itself superior in rudi
mentary football and generalship.
State’s offense didn’t run smoothly
in the first half, when fumbling and
hesitation over signals showed up
the assault, but the decided super
iority of the kicking game more
than gave State the balance of power.
Every time an exchange of punts
occurred it showed the Blue and
White to have made large inroads
into Dickinson’s territory. Mcll
veen’s punting was for consistently
long distances and served splendidly
to hold the Red and White at better
than even terms until State - got its
attack in working order.
There was considerable ill-feeling
engendered between the players of
the two elevens during the game.
This was principally due to the
rough house tactics employed by
Tackle Davis of Dickinson, who ap
parently seized every opportunity to
play dirty ball. Late in the second
half Davis was ordered out of the
game. Dickinson put in numerous
subs in the second half in an effort
to stem the tide of defeat, but the
fresh players did not hinder State’s
implacable men.
After the game 800 State stu
dents rushed impetuously onto the
field and carried their warriors to
the dressing rooms. Dickinson,
undaunted by defeat, did the same
for its heroes. Each contingent had
a band, and these tuneful aggrega
tions set the pace, but eventually
were lost in the uproar.

Crebs (Cramer) left end Barr

Side-line Notes.
Yeckley played a magnificent
Mcllveen’s punting was par ex
cellence: Davis wasn't in his class.
“Tom” Fennell saw the game
and congratulated the boys.
Yeckley would have had a touch
down to his credit, if the referee had 1
not been busy throwing a Dickinson'
rooter over the railing.
‘ ‘Rough-house’ ’ was in every play.
“Cal” Waller hasn’t forgotten his
job as water boy.
It was commonly reported after
the game that certain Dickinson en
thusiasts had nothing left but their
return tickets.
Saunders used good judgment in
running the team, and got the plays
off fast.
Every time State got close to
Dickinson’s goal line, the Dickinson
band played “Goodby, My Blue
Bell!” We wonder why!
Seely was the main stay of the
Dickinson team, and Wray held him
as well as any man could.
Ammerman, Dickinson’s centre
last year, seemed to take the result
very much to heart.
