Short Stuff
They say Coach Charley Bowser
of Pitt's "gold-plated" Panthers,
who scouted the Lions personally
Saturday couldn't get over the fact
that Larrupin' Lenny Krouse, Nit
tany wingback, was a second
stringer. "He's one of the best
backs I've seen all fall," was Bow
ser's toast. And remember that
Charley has seen Eshmont and
'Filipowicz of For dham, Paul
Christman of Missouri, and Lang
hurst and Scott of Ohio State
among his grid journeys so far.
While in the hats off department,
add the orchid which Red Friesen
threw onto the heap of verbal
corsages Captain 'Leon Gajecki is
gathering. Red, who does a lot of
officiating over the nations leading
battlefronts, boosted the Nittany
center as being the best pivot he's
seen in. the East, ranking right up
there with Finneran of Cornell.
Quiet spoken, easy•:going Jack
Hulme, who tends the aches and
pains of the State gridders, gave
the best description of the South
Carolina defense thus far, and he
does it in one word: "Brutal." Jack
should know, after 'overseeing Pep
Ventresco's slight concussion, Pep
per Petrella's broken nose, Tom
Vargo's sprained ankle, and Craig
White's bunged-up shoulder. Luck
ily, the above mentioned will not
be abserft when the Lions go
Orange-gathering at Syracuse Sat
The sudden dearth in Nittany
extra-point conversions is just one
of 'those unexplainables in football.
Counting the five missed in the
past two games, that's more than
they missed all last season. Yet,

Harriers Take Seven-Mile
Jog For Panther Tune-up
With the Pitt Panther baring its
claws for their annual harrier duel
on Saturday, the Nittany Lions
jogged a seven-mile tune-up yes
terday with Captain Bill Smith
setting the pace.
Although no pulled muscles or
leg injuries has been revealed after
the Manhattan loss, the diminutive
Nittany Lion captain is bothered
slightly by large blisters on his
,feet from setting the gruelling
pace against the Jaspers.
Al Bourgerie, who . was counted
out of this year's harrier service
by the team physician and trainer
because of a badly pulled tendon,
gave Coach Werner a pleasant sur
prise yesterday by running _the
seven-mile grind with the team.
Placing second in this year's .first
time trials and considered by
Werner as his jsecond best-harrier,
Bourgerie will not be able to com
pete in the Pitt contest, but may
participate in the important IC4-
A's to be held November 17.
Coming up fast after a slow sea
son's start, Pop Thi6l, junior har
rier, has burned over the five-mile
course in his past two meets and
now promises to become one of
Werner's chief threats in the re
maining dual contests and next
year's varsity competition.
Jeffrey, Wilson Old Foes
Bill Jeffrey, State's genial soc
cer coach, recalls playing in a
soccer game against Cincinnati's
World Series hero, Jimmy Wilson,
on Christmas Day, 1921.
last fall
"Danny's Demons," Penn State's
erstwhile Junior varsity boys, are
still moaning about the 94-yard
touchdown sprint of Quent Diet
rich's which was called back
against Navy Friday. From all des,
criptions it must have been a
honey, with Len Gramly running
the length of the field to knock the
safety man out as Dietrich went
Schoonover Lost To Football Team
With Attack of Bronchal Pneumonia
Struck with a sudden attack of
bronchal pneumonia, Ken Schoon
over, promising end who has seen
considerable action in the last three
games, will be definitely lost to
the Lion footliall team for the Syr
acuse game and probably for the
remainder of the season.
The strapping 200-pounder from
Athens has been confined in the
Infirmary since Sunday. Dr. Alfred
H. Griess, team physician, reported
late last night that although it was
too early to diagnose the case,
Schoonover appeared on the mend.
He will remain in bed for about
ten das.
Because the injuries received by
several of the players in the Lions'
win over South Carolina appeared
to have more lasting results than
expected, Coach Bob Higgins was
forced to postpone all contact work
yesterday and send his charges
through - a lengthy dummy scrim
mage. The varsity worked out on
defense against the junior varsity
which was using Syracuse running
and passing plays.
Craig White and Wade Mori
were on the sidelines for the sec
ond straight day. The former's
shoulder injury may limit his play
ing against the Orangemen and
there's a strong possibility that
Len Krouse may start Saturday's
game. Mori aggrevated his knee
injury by playing through most
of the game and can not be counted
to see much action this week.
Tom Vargo returned into uni
form yesterday, his ankle healed
while Pepper Petrella reported
with his broken nose taped. He
will play with a nose guard Satur
frosh Guard Jaffurs
May Nof Play Af Army
Injuries suffered in the Syra
cuse game a week and a half ago
may keep John Jaffurs out of the
game with the Army plebes next
Wednesday, Coach Marty McAn
drews said last night.
Against the Orange youngsters
Jaffurs was kicked, a tooth was
knocked out and his face was cut
so badly that 10 stitches were
needed to close the wound. Last
Saturday when the frosh defeated
Cornell he was replaced by Paul
Schlegel. Another first-string
freshman, Jack Banbury, will be
unable to play because of a brok
en jaw.
In practice yesterday the yearl
ings went through light drills
spending most of their time run
ning plays against the varsity in
dummy scrimmage. The third
frosh outfit was the only one to
have any contact work as they
scrimmaged Danny's "Demons,"
the Jay Vee team.
Eppright Candy Capture
Freshman Time Trials
Showing far more improvement
over previous freshman harrier
duos, two yearling cross-country
runners, Bill Eppright and Tink
Candy, denionstrated potential var
sity material when they ran within
eight seconds of Herm Goffberg's
freshman record of 15:33 minutes
in yesterday's time trials.
The time results are Bill Epp

Heck Lost To Booters
for Army Game Saturday
The Penn State soccer eleven
will face the Army squad here Sat
urday with their lineup weakened
by the absence of Alan Heck, right
fullback, who was injured in the
tilt with Navy last week.
Heck, who suffered a twisted
knee and pulled a tendon in the
Syracuse game, started the Navy
contest but was forced to leave
early in the last quarter when he
received a dislocated knee. It is
doubtful whether he will be able
to play in any more games this
