Offense Tactics Stressed
By Yearling Gridders

Two Veterans Will Miss Grid ()Oilier. Tomorrow
Peters, Stravinski
Replaced In Lineup
Carl Stravinski, senior left tac
kle, will definitely be missing from
the State lineup when the Lions
take the field against Bucknell on
New Beaver Field tomorrow.
The veteran's knee was injured
in the practice tilt with the fresh
men Saturday and the week's lay
off from drills has failed to allev
iate the injury. His place in the
starting lineup will be taken by
Walt Kniaz, another senior who
was a regular in his sophomore

With Pepper Petrella already
slated to replace Chuck Peters,
Coach Bob Higgins will be without
the service of two of his stars.
Peters has been out of action with
a separated shoulder for three
weeks and, though he has been
in uniform all week, will be kept
out of action. _
The Lions were sent through a
_light passing drill yesterday with
Bill Smaltz, Ralph Ventresco and
Earl Brown tossing them for the
first two teams. Special emphasis
was placed on pass defense since
the Lions have shown weakness in
this department at times.
Bucknell's coach Al Humphreys,
in the meantime, was non-commit
tal on his choice -for the signal
calling job. There's a good possi
bility that Gene Hayes may get
the nod for the starting assignment
at quarterback, replacing Dukes
Dueger, letterman last year. Hayes,
who is an accurate pass-tosser, fits
into the aerial plans of the Hum
phrey eleven.
The Bisons devoted more than
two hours yesterday to an aerial
drill for the backs and ends, while
the remainder of the squad worked
out under line coach Bus Blum.
Throughout 'the afternoon the
Bucknell linemen checked their
blocking and concentrated on Some
of the fundamental plays used by
the Lions.
Cow Equals 100 Hens
In Work Needed For Care
Caring for Susan the cow re
quires as many, man hours of labor
as looking after 100 little red hens,
according to a study made by J. E.
McCord, professor of farm. man
agement and agricultural eco
nomics, and C. E. Cronemeyer,
statistical clerk in the department
of agricultural economics. --
Half of this time is spent on
milking, the study shows. Each
year 71 to 87 hours are spent per
cow on that particular labor.
Feeding cows comes next, with an
average of 37 hours per cow..
Cleaning stables requires over 18
hours for each cow.

Werner Optimistic As Harriers Squad
Prepares For Time-Trials Tuesday
Showing far more improvement
than :Coach Chick Werner had an
ticipated in their two-weeks prac
tice sessions, the Nittany Lion har
riers will be in excellent form for
Tuesday's time trials to decide the
lineup for the Michigan State en
counter on October 12.
"Although I haven't clocked any
of my runners yet, they show all
indications of beating the time of
any pre-season team that I have
had in years," Werner contended.
While he was fairly optimistic.
about. the squad's capabilities earl
ier this fall, Werner now admits
that all of his junior harriers, who
won the 1938 freshman IC-4A
championship cross-country title,
have shown surprising form and
will be a formidable threat to Lion
...- ' BUY
..-.., Npw - , -,-_,
One blue note in Werner's plans
is 'the ankle injury of Herm Goff
berg, who was slated to aid Cap
tain Bill Smith in rolling up first
and second places in dual meets.
Goffberg's ankle has-failed to res
pond to treatment, and whether he
will compete in.the - Michigan State
match is uncertain. .
"On the other hand ; " the cross
country mentor added, "Pop Thiel
has ironed out.his fault of saving
too much staying power for the
finish line, and Alex Bourgerie,
junior veteran, has shown that he
expects to be a dual meet winner
this year."
Max Peters,-Chet Snyder, Clair
Hess, Choppy Rhodes and Vern
Kotz, are other varsity men who
will vie for favorite positions on
Werner's team. - -

The - Bisons Are Coming
'Within the past week I have

Penn State going to beat Bucknell
Saturday?" or "How. many touch;
