expense' of the third stringers by
romping to numerous gains and
touchdowns time after time'. The
regulars scored thrice in the early
part of the practice session before
giving way tolhe• second: eleven.
Bill Smaltz. started• the scoring
proceedings with a 10-yard smash
through , center which was reminis . -

Pitt game last year. The second
