WITH DICK PETERS
A week ago this time, Earl
"Sparky" Brown was just a third
string fullback on the Penn State
squad, and an injured one at that.
In fact, when the Lions went out
to meet Bucknell last Saturday,
Browny was sitting in the press
box above New Beaver Field, not
even in uniform.
Today, the picture is very much
changed. Sparky Brown is in a
tougher spot than a caterpillar in
the middle of an elephant herd.
For injuries to first and second
string fullbacks Bill Smaltz and
Pep Ventresco have literally
thrown the starting threeback post
into Spar!.iy's lap.
Out for over a week with a
shoulder injury, Brown has sud
rienly found himself the focal
point of all Nittany grid attention.
Upon his bunchy little shoulders
ride the hopes of Penn Staters for
a win over the Mountaineers to
All I've got to say is that if Bob
Higgins thinks Sparky Brown can
do the trick tomorrow, I do too.
May his number' 13 means dike
consequences for the West Vir
With Smaltz, White, and Ven
tresco out, the Lion kicking de
partment is the hardest hit at the
moment. To Chuck Peters, back
in shape after three weeks layoff,
will fall the punting chores.
Though nut the distance @ooters
that the two incapacitated full
backs are the blonde flash has
looked fairly good during the
week's workouts, and with a lit
tle' assistance from Cap Bailey,
may be able to hold the Moun
taineers at bay.
Both Brown and Peters have
shown promise at their new tasks
during the drills since that "Blue
Monday." Brown is running as
hard and handling the ball as apt
as a Penn State three-back
should. Peters' punts have looked
better with each practice.
So if Brown and Peters come
through tomorrow as they have
during practice sessions this week,
maybe the injuries that shook the
Lion foundation will not hurt so
badly aft/2r all.

The Intramural Board has an
nounced the followin.g changes in
intramural football rules:
In regard .to the safety, when

The old rule required the offen-.
sive team to ' , kick the ball from
their own 20.
The Board also has decided to
permit a reasonable amount of
blocking behind the offensive line
of scrimmage to give the passer a
little protection. This blocking,
may only ,be done with folded
arms, and leaving the feet is not
