It. H. SMITH
MAKES STATEMENT
Rumor of Injustice Toward Univer
sity of Pittsburgh Authorities Is
Squelched by Penn State.
Since Thanksgiving 1910, at
which time the Pitt team defeated
our eleven, stray stories have arisen
that Forbes Field had been watered
before the game that year. The
matter of wetting the field was
denied by all connected at Pitt and,
in order to quell the unfounded
rumor and lift 'an injustice from a
university 'whose advancement in
all lines is greatly appreciated by
Penn State, R. H. Smith has sent
the following letter to the Univer
sity of Pittsburgh which dispels
any suspicion that our authorities
may have in the matter.
The Athletic Association of the
Pennsylvania State College, Office
of Graduate Manager, State Col
lege, Pa.
February 17, 1913
Mr. Charles S. Miller, Director of
Athletics, University of Pittsburgh,
Grant Boulevard, city:
Dear Sir—l have your letter rela
tive to the revival of rumors charg
ing the University of Pittsburgh
athletic authorities with watering
or otherwise tampering with the
gridiron at Forbes Field, for the
— purpose of handicapping Penn
State players in our annual football
game. I also note your suggestion
that I attend an investigation to
prove the falsity , of these rumors,
and that you have a number of
prominent men whose evidence
would be unimpeachable, who are
willing to take oath that the
charges are false.
The athletic authorities at Pitts
burgh are done a very grave injus
tice by the circulation of these
rumors. I beliet'e that I luttrebeen
in closer touch with athletic affairs
with the University of Pittsburgh
than any other representative of
Penn State, and I can say that there
is absolutely no foundation in these
stories.
With reference to your sugges
tion that I attend an investigation to
prove the falsity of the rumors, I
would say that sTia action is en
tirely unnecessary as I have never
placed any credence in the report,
and have always had the greatest
confidence in those who have
charge of athletics at the University
of Pittsburgh. In the nine years
that I have dealt with Pitt our rela
tions have been most pleasant and,
for my part, there has always been
a feeling of confidence in the fair
dealing and good sportsmanship of
your athletic authorities.
I will be glad to co-operate with
you in any way possible toward a
correction of these rumors, and the
great injustice they have done.
Very truly yours,
R. H. Smith,
Graduate Manager of Athletics.

With the loss of the Ohio State
and the Cornell games the man
agement faced a difficult problem
in securing desirable games to fill
their places. Negotiations for
games were made with Yale, Har
vard, Princeton, Dartmouth, Brown,
Syracuse, West Point, Michigan,
Lehigh, Swarthmore, Colgate,Dick
inson, and Haverford, but all of
these efforts were unavailing. Pros
pects for a game with Yale or Har
vard for a short time looked very
bright but when the tentative sched
ules were submitted to the respec
tive Athletic Committees our game
Was crossed off as being too severe
for the time of the season for which
it was scheduled.
The schedule of games for the
Freshman team, as completed to
date includes the following:
October 25, Indiana Normal
School at Indiana.
