Successor to • the Free Lance, Established 1887 VOL. 37—No. 32 Gridders Prime For Gamecock Tilt After Owl Battle Confident after superlative de fensive work and crushing running pcnver unleashed in the Temple game netted them an overwhelm ing 18 to 0 victory over the highly rated Owls, the unbeaten, untied Lion gridders began preparations yesterday for the battle with the South Carolina eleven here' n Sat urday. Coach Bob Higgins sent his var sity players through a defensive drill against Gamecocks' plays, which were performed by the third stringers. The visiting outfit uses. the Notre Dame offensive system 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. State's brilliant 'forward wall, in the meantime, stopped the opp'on ent's running offensive and kept 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- yard romp ' off right tackle by Peters. The other touchdowns were by Petrella a .dazzling 35-Yard run and. a five yard slash through the line. Temple's ace passer, Andy Tom asic, gave the State fans a few un easy moments in the first half with his accurate tosses but the Blue and White secondary stopped the Owls' aerial barrage with several interceptions in . the .final two quarters.

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 ation. ?Y. v :: ;:i,~^.. 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 country. 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.

PRICE FIVE CENTS Artur Rodzinski Conducts Performance, March 11 Announcement that the Cleve land Orchestra under the baton of Dr. Artur Rodzinski has been bOoked for its second Artists' Course Series concert was made yesterday by Dr. Carl E. Mar quardt, committee chairman. The orchestra, entering its twenty third season, will appear here on Monday evening, March 17 in Schwab Auditorium. Offering twenty-two years of ex perience, the Cleveland Orchestra is prepared to support the effort of the Course committee to equal or excel the performances of last year. Dr. Artur Rodzinski, now in his eighth year as conductor, has a responsive and well-drilled orch estra of eighty-two virtuosos. -In its tours the orchestra has played 856 concerts in 25 states and covered North America from Kansas City to Bangor, Maine, from Ottawa, Canada, to Havana, Cuba. Only. two conductors have been. in charge of the orchestra since its founding. Nicholai Sokoloff served as conductor from 1918 to 1933 and was succeeded by Artur Rodzinski. Rodzinski's seven years as direc tor have placed the Cleveland Or chestra among the handful of the finest musical institutions in this country. Not only for the perfec tion of its performances, .but for the scope and distinction of its repertory- has it won such. a high. place. When the orchestra played in. Carnegie Hall last season, Olin Downes of the New York Times wrote enthusiastically of the per formance: "We owe to liodzinski one of the most interesting orch estral concerts of the season in this city and the exciting realization of the waxing powers of a re markable conductor." 1 11 11 11 11 1111111111111111111111111111111111,111111111111111111111111111 IF Late News Bulletins 111111111 11111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111IMM1111111 Athens The Italian foreign. minister to Greece made a formal declaration of war last night against Greece.
