Same Starting Five
Retained By Lawth , er
The same five players who start

were named by Coach John Law
ther last night as the starting line
up for the 'basketball fracas in
Davis Gymnasium at Bucknell to
"However, they'll have to play
better ball than they did against
W&J to win," Lawther said. "The
Bisons have ten veterans back plus

Starting for the Nittany quintet
will •be Captain Johnny Barr and
Johnny 'Silan on the front line,
Herk Baltimore at center, and Dick
Grimes and Elmer Gross at the
back line positions. Other players
making the trip will be Scotty
'Moffatt, Bob Ramin, Bob Crowell
and John Linde.
Bucknell already has one tri
umph to its credit—a 42-27 shel
lacking of Elizabethtown. Add to
this the fact' that the Lewisburg
team outscored State by 44-37 last
year and it's easily seen that-the
contest will be no pushover for the
Lion courtmen.
Included among the experienced
campaigners on the Bison squad
are -a couple of fast forwards,
Nolan and Fahringer, who ac
counted for 26 points in the 1939
State-Bucknell game. Another
player who will need plenty of
watching is Glass, a guard, who
rang up seven field goals in the
.Bucknell opener, Wednesday.
Snyder, another starter, was
also the opening lineup last

For Terrapin TO
With Charlie Speidel's matmen
scheduled to grapple with Mary
land January 11, almost immedi
ately after Christmas vacation,
the Nittany Lion coacn is hurrying
training in,order to be ready for
the Terrapin invasion.
The four class trials for posi
tions in each of the eight weight
groups will begin today with in
terclass finals slated either Janu
ary 6 or 7.
After losing such varsity grap
plers as Captain Ernie Bortz, 175-
pound intercollegiate champ, War
ren Elliott, heavyweight, Midge
King, 121-pound scrapper, and
128-pound Dave Waite, the heav
ier.weights will be harder hit and
are left open with no varsity men
Captain Frank Gleason, 1939 in
tercollegiate 136-pound champion
who was unexpectedly dethroned
by Penn's Bill Levering, will lead
the varsity parade. Because eith
er the 145 or 155-pound spot will
be open to comparatively green
wrestlers, Speidel is planning to
use the dApendable Joe Scalzo in
either weight, depending upon the
showing of his reserve material.
Clair Hess, 128-pound, Chuck
Rohrer, last year's steady 175-
pound grappler, and Glenn Alex
ander, reserve 155-pounder, com
plete the experienced personnel.
Only Rohrer, Gleason, and Scal
zo seem entitled to hold their posi
tions, which" leaves most of this
year's mat success falling upbn
