Standpoint of the coach, and Wald

The Lions
On The Cuff
My laundry came back yester
day and on one of‘the shirt cuffs
I discovered these notations, scrib
bled and forgotten, but forever
preserved, because I used an in
delible pencil. As I remember, I
took the notes while attending
practice sessions of Bob Higgins’
Lion gridders.
The-.jottings were taken in my
usual cryptic fashion and after de
ciphering, them here is what I dis
Hot Pepper—means that Pepper
Petrella is at it again, flashing the
form which made him Penn State’s
most dangerous back in'1939.. He
may push Chuck Peters to the hilt
for the Starting tail back post.
. Boomtowh—this was a tough
one" to’ decode, but it means that
tackle which Tom Vargo. slapped
on. Hank Day in Saturday’s scrim
mage. It was a typical Vargo tac
kle, and the thud that echoed
across New Beaver Field is rumor
ed to have, shook the water tower.
Yoho and a bottle—a notation in
remembrance of the fighting de
fensive work of Red Yoho, a guard
..who can’t tip the scales at 175 with
his arms full of bricks. But in
Saturday’s scrimmage the red
head pushed some of the big first
stringers around with such ease
that they thought he had Frketich
in his pocket.
Ugh—chief syllable used by all
football players when they wash
their mouths out with salt water,
provided instead of pure drinking
water. Also used by Frketich and
Jack Kearns at training table when
they face their usual portion of
fruit dishes—commonly called the
“fat man’s menu.”
Big Top—a descriptive phrase
for Paul "Weaver’s shoulders. I
haven’t been able to find out what
he uses for shoulder pads, though
it is rumored that the Bellefonte
Central is missing two six foot
steel rails.

Phi Kappa Sigma had a schol
arship average of 1.20 for the sec

36th among the men’s social fra

When Hosterman isn’t out on

Sophomores Defeat Reserves, 6-0,
As Higgins Gives Varsity Holiday^
Browns, Day and Gramly
Star In Intersquad Drill
Coach Bob Higgins accomplish
ed a two-fold- purpose yesterday
afternoon when he sent an eleven
composed mostly of last year’s
freshman team against a mixed
team of sophomores and varsity
reserves who had seen little scrim
mage action to date. ■* ■
It gave the Lion, mentor a
chance to size up some of the boys
who will have to bolster the Nit
tany reserve strength and the
manner in which the. two teams
tore into each other proved con
clusively how, hungry they 'were
for contact work; Finding them
selves in the temporary spotlight,
the gridders gave their best and
in quite a few instances it was
good enough. •
The new shining .stars of yester
day’s fray were Earl Brown, John
Day and L’en Gramly, all backs.
Though" handicapped*; by lack of
weight Brown and- Gramly- are
both very hard-running lads who
should prove valuable assets to
‘the. varsity ranks, ;
The end of. the hour’s scrim
mage found the sophomore team
bn the long end of a 6 'to 0 score.
The lone touchdown was made
These are the twin pleasures you look for
in a cigarette. You’ll find them in every Chesterfield you >

Day is a climax runner of
Chuck Peters’ style and gets away
for a long run soonet or later.
