Red and Black Veterans Prove Too
Strong for Hollenback's Boys—
Forward Pass Big Factor in Score
For the first time in Penn State's
history Washington and Jefferson
has been able to produce a team
that can cause us to be defeated.
Last Saturday Folwell's veteran
combination had the destinction of
being the only team that has de
feated Penn State in two years,
and was the only team that has
caused us to take a drubbing while
Bill Hollenback has been with us as
coach, the final score being 17 to 0.
The result was not a surprise.
Few teams suffering the loss that
ours has undergone since last year
could battle as well as ours did
last week. With two peerless ends,
a tackle, a guard, and a phenorn
onal fullback missing from the
eleven that faced the same
team last year, and defeated them
30-0, we met them in practically
their old strength plus the service
of an All American of ex-Lafayette
Washington and Jefferson had
the better showing as taken from
any angle. With experience as a
foundational factor, and a coach
with few equals in the business, the
Washington and Jefferson team has
welded itself into a machine that
has few, if any, equals in the col
lege world today. They have all
that could be desired. A quarter
back capable of averaging sixty
yards punts, past masters in the
art-of-hurling-the—forward pass,-and
ends of unusual ability in recieving,
line smashers of the Engle type,
with a center who would compare
favorably with any in the country,
Penn State had indeed a foe worthy
of its steel.
The Nittany boys, however, were
no easy marks. Till. e and again
Washington and Jefferson's line
smashing machine was checked
without a gain. Time and again
line plungers found our men a stone
wall. End runs were more success
ful. Too often the elusive Good
win, Fleming and Spiegel support
ed by perfect interference skirted
our ends for decesive gains.
Forward passes broke against the
Blue and White and in this art
Washington and Jefferson showed
unusual ability With but three ex
ceptions each pass, whether single,
double, or delayed, worked perfect
ly, netting the opponents in every
case substantial gains. On the
other hand we were weak and
without exception, the play was
broken up by an alert Washington
and Jefferson warrior.
Shorty Miller played a game
worthy of his reputation. From
the first kickoff he was covered by
the watchful eye of at least two
Washington and Jefferson men and
when in possession of the ball
seemed to draw the entire team.
In spite of this "Shorty" made the
longest run of the day when he cut
of twenty six yards, supported by
the old time interference, around
Big Clark proved Cruikshank's
equal at center. Our veteran used
his old sagacity in diagnosing the
opponents play and his line hitting
ability is told in the blocking of a
sure field goal in the final period.
Berryman, Tobin and H. Clark
were the most consistant ground
.iainers. Tobin especially showed
nis old dash in line plays, fre-
quently getting through for good
gains. Clark made one beautiful
run from a kick formation.
The line, although broken at
times by repeated onrushes, held
well. In no case did State suffer a
blocked kick although at times
Clark was forced to kick not
wholly prepared.
In the opening period Washing
ton and Jefferson kicked to State
with the fast Red and Black
men almost under the ball.
Miller recieved but was downed
after a short gain. An end run re
sulted in a loss of five yards which
left the ball on our fifteen yard line.
Clark punted the ball out of danger.
Fleming kicked a placement goal
after a series of plays.
The second quarter found the
,all in Red and Black hands as the
result of a forced punt. Forward
passes and off tackle plays carried
it to our 42-yard line where with
State in possession it was again re
turned to the opponents 40-yard
line by plunges of Berryman, To
bin, and H. Clark Here the Blue
and White lost 35-yards on a hard
pass but recovered on their own
15-yard line. Clark punted. W.
and 3.• bucked the line three times
for no gain and the punt that fol
lowed placed the ball once more
in ow hands on the 15-yard line.
End runs by Berryman and Tobin
netted ten yards. Five more on a
line plunge was gained by Clark
but was immediately lost from a
tackle behind the line on an at
tempted end run by Miller. An
exchange of punts followed, inter
spersed by a •
- 15-yard gain, and pen
alty on the part of the opponents.
With the ball on our 25-yard line
line Fleming fell back for a place
ment kick. The kick went wide
and State started the ball on her
own 25-yard line The ball was
booted out of danger and advanced
five yards by the W. and J. team
as the first half ended.
In the opening of the third
quarter State received the kickoff
and ran it back to the 25-yard line.
Several plays and an exchange
of punts resulted in a loss.
After Clark had kicked from be
hind our goal line, Goodwin made a
touchdown by a forwaad pass.
Soon Clark was again forced to
kick from behind the line, this time
in the last quarter. W. and J. fail
ed at a placement kick. The final
touchdown was made by a beauti
end run by Spiegel. The game
ended with Penn State pushing W.
and J's offense back to their very
goal posts.

The freshmen football team met
and defeated the .strong High
School eleven on Saturday by the
score of 13-0. As a good game
was expected, quite a number of
freshmen turned out and cheered
their classmates on to victory. A
novel stunt in the way of encour
agement was the organization of a
freshmen band whichlalmost equal
ed the regular college band.
High School kicked off to the
freshmen who returned the ball to
the center of the field! From here
by line plunges and forward pass
1917 succeeded in running the ball
to High Schools 5-yard line. Burns
went - cen re
down and Underhill kicked the
goal. No further scoring was made
during the first half and the second
period ended with score 7-0 in
favor of 1917.
In the second half the freshmen
took a brace but the line was un
able to hold and the only scoring in
these periods was accomplished
through two field goals by Flem
ing, one being a placement kick
from the 45-yard line.
Considerable fumbling, especially
on the part of High School, was in
evidence. The freshmen were pen
alized frequently for holding and
with the exception of Thomas and
Fleming played poor football.
They outweighed High School con
siderably and yet were held fre
quently for downs. For High
School Pond and Shirk starred.

Health Campaign
The local Y. M. C. A. has started
a new thing in college association
work by getting a "Health Cam
; paign" under way, Dr. Seerly,
whose lecture was so largely attend
ed Sunday a week ago, was the
first of the four proposed speakers,
and the undoubted interest shown
at his talk makes the beginning of
the movement a most propitious
one. The three speakers who are
to fellow, Dr. Woods Hutchison,
0. Rozenroad and Samuel Mc-
Comb, will come over week ends in
the course of the next few months.
Dr. Woods Hutchinson, a physician
and thinker of no little note is a
strong exponent of rational living as
a means toward gaining and keep
ing good health. Dr. 0. Rozenroad
of Wiesbach, Germany, will pro
bably discuss the relation of diet to
health; and Dr. Samuel McComb
will lecture on diseases of the
nerves. As is readily seen, the
course is very broad, very compre
hensive, and it cannot fail of being
a benefit to everyone. The asso
ciation has gone to quite a little
trouble and expense to secure the
best and most competent speakers;
and those in charge are confident
that they have succeeded. The
Health Campaign is peculiar in
that it is the first one to be taken
up in a college under student initia
tive, and every man should take
advantage of the great opportun
ties that the movement otfords
Extension Work
The extension division of the
lished, in co-operation with the
State Department of Labor and In
dustries, a collection of safety de
vices and appliances. A large
number of such devices and photo
graphs illustrating safety methods
have been received from manufac
turers throughout the country.
Some of the more important de
vices are: Norton safety grinding
wheels, from the Norton Co., Wor
cester, Mass.; electrically operated
models of safety wood working
machines, from the Oliver Machin
ery Co., Grand Rapids, Mich.; cir
cular saw guards, from Zeiler and
Nagel, Brooklyn, N. Y., and from
the Tenn. Coal and Iron Co., Birm
ingnsm, Ala.; safety ladders, from
the Detroit Manufacturing Co.,
Ambler, Pa.
World's Record in Doubt
Vigorous efforts ate at present
being put forth on the part of Mer
cersburg Academy and Penn State
to have the world's record for the
220-yard dash made by Robinson
last spring on New Beaver 'crack
authenticated by the A. A. U.
Statements as to former exper
ience of timers, length of track,
possible slope of track, atmospheric
conditions, etc. have already been
secured from timers Ham and Gar
ver. The chief trouble in having
the record recognized by the A. A.
U. lies in the fact that none of their
representatives were present at the
time of the performance. Indica
tions point, however, that the above
efforts are going to prove success
Short of Funds
Any man, who is short of funds
and wants to buy an Association
Course ticket, need feel no hesit
ancy in giving his name on a slip of
paper, which will serve as an I. 0.
U. He will find that he is not the
only man who is temporarily short
of funds.
