PAGE FOUR M@irs Gpei sea» (Continued from page one) play either outside right or Gus JJigott’s old position, center for ward, and Anibal “Gringo” Gal indo, the' transfer from Panama, who will probably handle the in aide left position. Galindo, brought up in a coun try where soccer is the national sport, is one of the most skillful ball handlers the Lion team has bad. He has mastered the finesse that Coach Jeffrey emphasizes in stead of a “power” player. Extra bleachers have been set up for the large crowd that is ex pected, and present indications are that the supply of seats will be far less than those necessary to accom modate the fans.

John Lawther became varsity basketball coach at Penn State in 1937 and started to work with the characteristic thoroughness that he had displayed at Westminster while head basketball coach there. ■ Lawther started from scratch with the Lion courtmen, benching most of the lettermen from the year before, including the co-cap tains. During the previous season Penn State had entered the fast Eastern Conference and had lost every league game. Lawther in his first year succeeded in win ning 6 out of 10 league games and finished in third place. In 13 seasons at Westminster and Penn State, Lawther has com piled one of the outstanding coaching records in the country. He won 202 and lost only 57 games for a winning percentage of .780. Mat Captain Gleason Is Most Unpredictable Frank Gleason, captain of Char lie Speidel’s wrestling squad, can be called the unpredictable of Penn State wrestling. A better than average wrestler, Frank was pinned five times in his sopho more year, but not because his op ponents were better. The Nittany captain would look like a million dollars on the mat, keeping a time advantage over his opponent, but because he had an irresistable desire to try new holds when he had the advantage, he would find his opponent clamping on one of his own. Gleason’s exploring nature, however, gave him confidence, and he won an unexpected cham pionship in the 1938 Eastern In tercollegiates. Last year he had an undefeated season, losing only to Laggan of Penn in the Eastern Intercollegiate finals. Thiel Seeks Replacements For Graduated Slickmen Although fall lacrosse practice has been underway for only a week, Coach Nick Thiel is putting his varsity candidates through half-field scrimmage in an effort to find replacements for the 14 senior stickmen who graduated from last year’s squad. About 35 candidates, almost evenly divided between varsity and freshmen, have reported to date. Thiel has his intention to practice until “snow flies.” He announced that additional candidates may report any after noon at 4 o’clock.

THE DAILY COLLEGIAN lUllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllimillllllllllllllllUUlllllll Between The Lions iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Lines Oil The Lions Everything indicates a great turnout this afternoon for Penn State’s first scheduled 1940-41 ath letic contest, when the Lion soccer team begins its eighth undefeated season—and you may take that as a prediction. Though a little at loss to fill the places left by Big Bob Schuler and Dutch Lange in his 1939 outfit, Coach Bill Jeffrey has the amazing ability of turning up with just the right man to fill his vacancies each fall. So, here’s to the eighth, with the ninth coming up!!! Not many coaches of any sport face the problems of Nick Thiel, varsity lacrosse mentor. Nick lost twenty men from his varsity squad, fourteen by graduation and six for other reasons. Thus when Nick starts his season next spring, he’ll have an almost all-sophomore team, built around only three ex perienced men Captain Dattle baum, Jim Riddell, and Jim Rittei’, brother of last year’s co-captain and all-American “Big Jidge” Rit ter. Expected to help tiut consider ably are second-year men Allen, Rudloff, Pettigout, and Thorpe. Starting off last' week with an average of .800 in prognosticating gridiron battles, this writer runs into a little quicksand in naming, victors for today’s games, blit here they are—believe them or not: West Virginia to trample West minster. Syracuse to topple Clarkson. NYU to warm up with P.M.C. Virginia to down Lehigh. Boston College in a close win over Tulane. Michigan with a slight edge on California. Washington to outscore Minne sota. Duke to roughshod it over V.M.I. Southern Methodist to take UCLA. And on a hunch. Pitt to upset Ohio State. Jordan Hall Occupants To Have New Lounge Work began yesterday on Jordan. Hall’s new lounge which will be ready for use early next week. Plans for the enlargement of the old quarters were made six months ago by Harold W. Loman, director of dormitories, upon the realization that the old lounge was inadequ ate for the needs of the hall’s oc cupants. The new lounge, double the size of the. old one, will be entered by two arched doorways and will con tain newly-upholstered furniture, a piano, arid a combination radio record player. Worst Accidenls Caused By Men r Says Neyharl ... Do women drivers have as large an accident rate as men? “Yes,” says Amos E. Neyhart of the Safety Education Bureau. But, he points out that most of the accidents caused by women are mere “fender scratches and insig nificant bumper dents.” “Men,” he says, “have, the larg er number' of fatal wrecks.” The main reason for the good female record, Neyhart states, is that women do not drive much late at night and are not subject to inclement weather as much as men are. Chicago To Hear Neyhart Amos E. Neyhart, head of the Safety Education Bureau, will ad dress the National Safety Congress at Chicago, from October 7 to 11. In addition, he will lecture at Sharon, Johnstown, and New 3t-pd-10195E Castle.

The frosh were given a let-up after two nights of work against the varsity but tomorrow after noon they will again tackle their big brothers, probably in a scrim mage game. . The extent to which Willis Campbell, big tackle, was injured has not yet been determind. He suffered a bruised shoulder Thurs day. Next week part of the freshman squad will continue the tussles with the varsity, while • the rest of the yearlings will scrimmage “Danny’s Demons,” the junior var sity squad coached by Danny De- Marino. Goffberg And Snyder Suffer Leg Injuries The injury jinx, feared and cursed by all coaches, finally rapped on the door of Coach Chick Werner, when Chet Snyder and Herm Goffberg, varsity, cross country runners, reported leg in juries yesterday. Goffberg sprained his ankle in his tour around the course and will be out of action for a few days.- An undetermined pain, in his leg has forced Snyder to ease up in his long distance workouts. However, Coach Chick Werner is exceptionally pleased with the. advanced condition of the remain der of his squad. Rounding into shape faster than usual, the har riers are running the five mile course in better time than Wer ner had expected. Ace Sportscasfers Rales Penn State Third In East Jimmy Evans, ace sportscaster, predicted on his 15-minute radio program that the Nittany Lions would have the third strongest team in the East this year, and the sixth strongest"in the nation. On the basis of gridiron might in the East, Evans rated the top five teams in this order: Cornell, Boston College," PENN STATE, Fordham and Princeton. In the nation, his chart went like this: Texas' A. & M.,. Ohio State, Notre Dame, Cornell, Wash ington, PENN STATE, Southern Californai, Tulane, Minnesota, Tennessee, Duke, Boston College, Fordham, etc. Your Next Dance... HAVE PROGRAMS THAT• WILL LEAVE LASTING • MEMORIES. :: Nittany Printing & Publishing Co. | 119-121 S. FRAZIER ST. DIAL 4868 1 V • • \ • ■ ■' SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1940 ■ Here’s some startling news for followers of Penn State’s football fortunes. The Nittapy Lions, after 17 lean years, can once again boast of an All-American in their lineup. In fact, two of Coach Bob Higgins proteges can lay claim to that honor. There’s only one little hitch -in the . whole set up. We .know that our two boys are real All-Amer icans, the coaches and the team know it, the townspeople know. it. Now all we have to do is to con vince some of the metropolitan sports experts of that well known fact and ,£3tate will have the first national star since the days of Higgins, Killinger, Waite, and Be denk. “Give him a few breaks, and he will be a sensation.” That is what Higgins has to say about'' Tom Vargo, big, tough, sinewy senior end. Because of his natural re ticence,- the erstwhile Johnstown luminary has been neglected by the football writers, but his equal ■for all-around consistent playing day in and day out would be hard to find. He does his job so efficient ly he makes it look easy. A blocked punt at an opportune moment and several sensational catches of passes when the score is close, that is all Vargo has to do to '■scale the heights of football fame. ; As for Captain Leon “Gates” Gajecki, his praises have been sung ever since that memorable after noon two years ago when he stop ped nearly every Penn threat sin glehanded. His perfect pivot play, vicious tackling and backing up placed him on the All-Pennsyl vania eleven last season. All who have seen him in action for the past two years claim he’s the equal if not the better of Chuck Chefun dolo the Lions’ great center of 1936 and now with ..the Philadelphia Eagles. 1940- looks like a big year- for Penn State. It may be the year' for Vargo and Gajecki. For the first time in half a dozen years two linemen, John Plewak and Morris (Bessel, are co-captains of Bucknell’s football team." Ord inarily one lineman and one back aye chosen. The last linemen to lead the Bisons to battle were Butch Boiston and Ralph Furiell, back in 1934.
