Ashes To Ashes
"Ashes to ashes, dust .to dust, if
-the -Bisons, Mountaineers, Engin

the dairy barns to the outskirts of
Boalsburg, blaming them for the
Lions' downfall to Pittsburgh Sat-

against the Smoky City lads, they
played as hard as in ,any fracas

some disappointment, I add my .
Hail To Pitt.
