Nittany Lion Hallett
Edged Out By Sytactise
In Tight Duel, 27-28
Captain Bill Smith and Chet
Snyder were not enough to stave
off .a superior Syracuse cross
country team when the Orangemen
edged out the Nittany harriers, 27-
28, in the last home dual meet held
here Friday morning.
Snyder .ran the best race of his
career when he fought off Wes
Stansbury and Lynn Radcliffe in a
close finish. Smith, diminutive
Lion pacemaker, led the way with
a fast 26:23 five-mile time over a
muddy course in his final home
Without the aid of a well-bal
anced squad because of an epide
mic of injuries, the Lion harriers
struggled to seventh, eighth and
tenth positions with Pop Thiel,
Vern Kotz, and Dusty Rhodes fin
ishing in that order.

Thoroughly satisfied with the
Lions' power-laden win over Tem
ple, chief speculation now in the
minds of Penn State grid enthusi
astkis, without doubt, whether the
Nittanymen are headed for their
first undefeated season since 1920.
At the halfway mark in their
schedule, a clean sheet behind
them, Bob Higgins' lads find them
selves in a really tough Spot. Un
beaten teams are the apple of
every football opponents' eye.
South Carolina, Syracuse, NYU,
and Pitt, yet to be met by the up
rushing Lions, will all be pointing
to. their clash with the local grid
men. All of them have tasted de-.
feat at least twice, and a win over
the potent State gridders would be
a feather in their helmets. In fact,
records to date would indicate that
the locals'should have smooth sail-.
irig . . but records can be wrong.
Undefeated football teams usu
ally lick themselves. They get
overconfident. They let down: They
get -careless. They take it easy
against underdog opponents. Penn
State's Lions must guard against
Another danger lies in the don't
give -a-hoot attitude which South
Carolina, Syracuse, NYU, and Pitt
will inject into their offenses. The
four remaining Nittany enemies
will throw every caution to the
winds in an effort to outscore
State. They'll pass the Lions dizzy,
and even you'll admit the locals'
aerial defense looked a little shaky
against the Owls Saturday.
But, looking at it from State's
angle, the Temple fracas showed
more than ever the strength of the
Lions' forward wall and potency
of the running attack. The corn
bination of the two is what may
make an undefeated season a real
ity, but don't - lake that as a pre

Syracuse, 7-0, Saturday
The Lion soccermen took one
more step toward their eighth un
defeated season Saturday - as they
completely outclassed Syracuse
and blanked the Orangemen, 7-0.
Van Hartman led the Nittany
men by tallying three of the'Lions'

close behind with two. The other

the blue sky o'erhead, the rabbit will scurry over the meadow and the
sound of the hunter's shot will echo and re-echo. That's fun, but more fun
