TODAY and FRIDAY
While the State Lions are put
ting on the 'finishing touches for
Saturday's opener with Bucknell,
Coach Al Humphreys has seen
drilling the . Bisons through, long
aerial practices indicating that the
visitors' chief weapon of attack
will 'be in the air.
Since the Thundering Herd's
supply of backfield material is
none too plentiful, Humphreys
has been giving everyone of this
year's contingent of candidates a
chance to pass. Laverne Dueger
and Mel Knupp are among the
outstanding tossers with Fred
Fahringer and Gene Hayes, ser
ious backfield threats, also dem
onstrating their ability in this de
The Bisons' pass formations not
only give more of the backs an
opportunity to throw but also al
low for more potential receivers.
In the latter department, ends
Fred Gore and Jesse Mair will see
action against State.
A number of sophomore line
candidates• have been demonstrat
ing their value as Bison reinforce=
ments this fall. The most prob
able to crash the lineup are center,
Stephen Sokol, guard, Phillip Van
Sant and tackle Jim Fennell.
The 29-man Bucknell squad
will leave . Lewisburg Saturday
morning by bus for State College.

has piled up a total of 16 victorys
to 9 defeats while playing against
the major . fencing squads of the
Speaking of this year's schedule,
"Doc" Krutter dourly predicted
that "we dOn't stand a chance
against N.Y.U., Navy, or Seton
Hall." With luck, he hopes to make
a better showing against the other
teams listed, though even there,
he insists, victories are far from

Frosh Attack Improves
In Scrimmage With J.V.'s
Although more than a few rough
spots—especially passing were
evident, the yearling gr i dde r s
showed improvement as their of
fense got its first real test in yes
terday's scrimmage against the
junior varsity team.
Pass defense was another glar
ing weakness as the J.V.'s, led by
dimunitive Bill Mazzocco and Sam
Kopach, unwrapped a surprisingly
good aerial atack. Early in the
scrimmage the junior varsity grid
ders set the freshmen back with
two consecutive heaves that net
ted a total of 35 yards.
Jack Banbury, freshman full
back, showed plenty of power as
he drove through the J.V. line

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1940
With the first triumph of their
1940 season and consecutive vic
tory number 54 behind them, the
Lion soccermen are diligently prac
ticing every day in preparation
for the next tilt scheduled with
Western Maryland on October 12.
The two sophomore fullbacks
who replaced Bob Sehuler and
Dutch Lange did a very commend
able job of filling the shoes of the
former Nittany stars. Also out
standing was Captain Walt Hoster
man who played brilliantly 'both
on the offense and defense.
