and the Blue and White will be up
against Knute Rockne's shift for
the first tune this season. All men
who saw action Saturday came out
of the tilt in good shape.
With quarterback phne Pat
rick mixing his plays to perfection
against a bewildered Temple de-
fense, the Lions used their unre.-
sistable off-tackle thrusts and de
ceptive reverse runs to pile up a
three touchdown margin over the
Owls and came close 'to scoring
three other times.

the meantime, stopped the opp'on

the Quaker City team in its own
backyard except for a temporary
threat in the second period.
Chuck Peters, Pepper Petrella
and Len Krouse paced the attack
which netted six-pointers in the
first, second and fourth periods.
The first tally came on an eight-

Peters. The other touchdowns were

Laich's letter follows:
To the State College Drum and
Bugle Corps and the citizens of
State College:
In behalf of the Penn State stu
dent body. I wish to expfess its
gratitude to you for turning out
to welcome the Penn State foot
ball team on its return from the

The manner in which the corps
was assembled in uniform within

Chances 'Slight'
For Armory Grant
The cost of the proposed new
College armory has been estimated
by the WPA at $1,800,000 but
chances for having the request ap
proved are "very slight," Rep.
James E. Van Zandt told the Daily
Collegian yesterday.
The' reason for this, he explain
ed, is that only $25,000,000 has
been allotted as a defense fund
and there are many things that
must be done with this appropri
?Y. v ::
He suggested that a more likely
way of having the armory built
would be to have it sponsored by
the state as a regular WPA pro
ject. Representative Van Zandt
seemed of the opinion that in this
way the usual building value re
striction would be removed be
cause of "the national defense as
pect of the construction."
Plans for the erection of a new
armory were disclosed about two
weeks ago by Col. Ambrose R.
Emery, head of the College ROTC
unit. If built according to present
plans, he said, the armory would
be approximately twice the size
_of Rec Hall and Would be one of
the largest college armories in the
Colonel Emery said that the new
armory could be used for "innum
erable College activities and as
semblies" when not being used by
the ROTC department.
