Nth Grid Baffle
Opens With Lions
Favored To Win
The vaunted 1940 Penn State
football team, slated by sports ex
perts for great heights this year
but with two important members
on the sidelines with injuries, will
lift the curtain on its 54th inter
collegiate gridiron season at 2-p.m.
today when Bucknell's Thundering
Herd will charge on New Beaver
Field to do battle with the favored
This year's game will mark the
28th battle between the two col
leges with State on the winning
end 17 times. Strangely enough, no
tilt has ever ended in a tie. As is
usually the case, the Bisons will be
rated the underdog but history has
proved that in the past highly
favored• Nittany elevens have
fallen by the wayside against fight
ing Bucknell aggregations. During
the past ten years, State has lost
to today's opponent no less than
seven times.
So it will be a confident yet wary
Lion outfit that will take the field
this afternon. Many of the players
still remember that 14. to 0 upset
two years ago while only the spec
tacular running of Pepper Petrella
gave the Lions a 13 to 3 victory
last year.
Coach "13,0 b Higgins will send a
veteran combination into action at
the opening whistle. With . a single
exception, all starters faced the
visitors last year, the only new
comer to the team being Lloyd
Parsons, senior end, who has seen
little service in the past two years.
At right end for the Lions will
be Tom Vargo, returning regular.
Frank Platt and Walt Kniaz will
be at the two tackle posts, the lat
ter replacing injured Carl Stra
vinski. Wade Mori and Mike Gar
binski, a pair of rough and ready
guards will support the center of
the line with Captain Leo Gajecki
holding up the center of the for
ward wall.
Little Pepper Petrella, author of
many sensational runs last year,
will open up in the tailback or left
halfback spot in place of Chuck
Peters, who has been out of action
for three weeks with an injured
shoulder. Craig White is slated for
the wingback position for the third
straight year and Johnny Patrick
wil do the blocking and signal call
ing from the quarterback post. The
Lions' punting and passing star,
fullback Bill Smaltz, will round
out the starting State backfield.
Bucknell's Coach Al. Humphreys
will put four returning veterans in
the Bison backfield to combat the
seasoned State powerhouse. Gene
Hayes, an accurate passer and
shifty runner, draws the starting
assignment at quarterback. George

Wueller Returns From
Stale Taxation Duties
Dr. Paul H. Wueller of ti - ,e de
partment of economics returned
recently from Harrisburg where
he was chairman of the policies
and procedure committee of the
Education Congress.
He recommended that the state
assume between 35 and 40 per
cent of the cost of public educa
tion. In order to • finance the in
crease in expenditure as well as to
liquidate the
.operating deficit he
suggested that the legislature in
troduce a tax. on earned income
and on retail sales.
