The Lion
With 808 WILSON
Success Story
This is'a story about a guy who
has Just-been elected Penn State's
outstanding senior athlete.
It dates back to the Spring of
1938 When Nick Vulcmanic, then
only a - sophomore, scored a grand
slain in the nation's Nivel:n
th] owing competition by sweeping
the vial( in the Penn Relays, the
IC , the NC A A- - champion
chips, and finally , in the National
A A U games
By accomplishing the feat land
all within two months time), Vulc•
manic, still an extrtmely modest
and unassuming youth, probably
brought more fame to the Penn.
sylvania State College than any
other Lion athlete in the past
To-get , back to the stery—one
- afternoon ate! Vukmanie had set
his aniaring record and had con
tributed more than his share of
points as a member of the Lion
track team, he dropped in at Rea
say good-bye to back coach
',Chick Werner
As he was about to'leave, Wer
ner, called him back and asked
"Nick, don't volt want to take a
javelin along with you" You may
want to to', one ai ound back home
this summer"
~ Nick looked puzzled for a mml
ute, and then smiled , '
"No thinks, Chick," he said,
"You see, practically, every kid in
Mather has a tavern, and I won't
have any trouble borrowing one."

In the Swarthmore game Rogei
Frost, Comet in home, put the
visitors out in hont only eight
seconds after the opening whistle
Both teams went scoreless for the
rest of the quarter
Swarthmore's Al Thatcher
started the ball rolling again in
1 08 of the second period by scor
ing unassisted Frost tallied again
before Lion Co-captain Bart Bus
er dented the net from close range
to give State its.first goal
Garnet Leads al Half
Unassisted, Thatcher tallied
for the second time as the half
ended Score Swarthmore 4,
Penn State I
State snapped out of its lethar-
gy in the third pet iod and spread
Swarthmbre's cone defense, per
mitting Co-captain George Ritter
to score twice Both goals were
tallied in the same way Jim Rid
dell running behind the goal pass
ed to Balm who cut across to
shoot from Just outside the crease
In spite of the mote effective
State attack, the Garnet held its
three-goal lead In 909 Frost
registered his third counter, and
Lin Wolfe gi abbcd the ball just
before the gun sounded, ran the
tcngth of the field, and scored be
fore the Nittany defense could
get set '
The final pet iod saw Lion scor
ing completely halted while the
Gal net kept up the pace Thatch
er tallied twice, once in 6 03 and
again in 19 03
Fierce, close checking by the
Swarthmore team, and a sluggish
attack and sloppy ball handling
by State contributed toward the
locals downfall Several times
the Lion offense gained possession
of the ball, worked it downfield,
but lost it when messed by the
hard-fighting Garnetmen
