Thanks To Soccer For
A Welcome Relief
Someday Penn State's soccer juggernaut is go
ng to hit a snag and its string of games without
defeat (now at 57 and in its eighth year) Nvill come
i.o an end
No one expects that to be a particularly un
b;:ppy day for Coach Bill Jeffrey.
Last year he saw the strain of winning and
l•: - i-eping the streak intact wearing on his boys'
nerves. He, told them to go out and lose a game
2nd get the streak over. Then. he said. they could
get back to playing for fun.
He enforces no training rules.
Although an old man in terms of most sports.
he plays the game better than his boys. He even
played with them during an exhibition game with
Franklin and Marshall this year.
' From the heaviness and intensity of the harsh
business-like, persistent drive for victory that
marks most other intercollegiate sports. this is
v..elcome relief. Granted. it would not be nearly
n.s remarkable had it not been marked by constant
r I' ccess
Thumbs Down ? Thumbs Up !
Subsidization of college athletics has come to
the point where the National Collegiate Athletic
AFsociation decided at its national convention last
Christmas-time to frown on all kinds of unearned
income given athletes. even to oust offending
schools from the association.
The trouble with that threat, more than one
coach has observed, is that not a college in the
country . with a big football team would be left in
the association if the spirit of the law were en
Penn State's athletic heads persistently worry
about subsidization. Should it be done? If sc.
how much? How should it be done? And so on.
Be it said here. as an aside. that the Collegian re
cognizes there are strong cases both for and
against it but believes the ayes have it.
Some gloomy day, it may be well to return to
this most serious subject, to ferret out the pros
and cons, but the business at hand on this particu
lar occasion is not nearly as serious.
The reader will do Well to note that 'the par
ticular story which follows has not been verified
and could quite easily be false. True or false, it
is a good story and illustrates a point.
It is also welt to note two other things, first that
it occurred before the N.C.A.A. looked for a whip,
second that even with a whip N.C.A.A. couldn't
touch it. •
The center of the story is lanky Bob Peoples,
whom all but Penn State freshmen will knov.• as
the only college athlete in America who was con
: intently better in the javelin than Penn State's
Nick Vukmanic. PeopleS also is no slouch on a
Peoples is no flash in the pan. lie threw the
;iavelin 200 feet in high school and was a football
zce. The colleges went after him. It simmered
down to a choice between U.S.C. and Stanford.
No fool. Peoples played thtm against each other
for all they were worth.
Finally, Stanford made the offer that looked
.ike the clincher: Go to U.S.C., see what's the
best you can get, and we'll beat it.
After that Peoples spent a week at Palo Alto
tlnd that, apparently, was that. But he went home
to a telegram from his sweetheart:
"Bob. 'm flying to Los Angeles. U.S.C. just gave
3.11 , : , a full scholarship."
The story doesn't need a finish, but we'll add
ot!e. This will be Pecpltli . List year at U.S.C.

celebrated gent, you dumb saps (you must be if
you read this tripe) is our houseparty. chaperon.
From all reports. the only kick aboilt the past
weekend was that it didn't last long enough. As
