SATURDAY DECEMBER. 14, 194 Q
WITH DICK PETERS
" - Like most banquets, the 1940
football affair the other night was
jammed from doorway to the kit
chen of the Nittany 'Lion with
speeches . . . From the opening
Welcome to the singing of the Alma
-Mater at the close, the air was
"filled with praises of Penn State's
• - football warriors, and justly too
. . . Everyone kicked in with a
":few nice words for this person and
• Of them all we - liked best
Lenny Krouse's tribute to Gates
Gajecki . Krottse had just been
.:;.atmotiriced the au captain by Ga
:.jecki,. who -classed himself as a
--f!has-been" . . . But Krouse took
the words out of every State fan's
mouth when he replied that "you'll
.fielfer be a 'as-been' to me, Gates
..;you'll always be my captain" . .
.Next best we liked Cap'n Bob
Heigins' remarks about 'the out
seniors, especially his tri
butes. to fellows like Aub Nonne
-Maker, Jim Woodward, Walt
- Kniaz, Ben Pollock, and Sam Ko
.pach . . . Talking about football
. rernitids Us that Gates Gajecki will
be heading westward Monday to
:join the Eastern All-Stars in Chi
' 'cago . . . Hob Higgins tells the tale
of the Penn game two- years ago
when one of his sophomore play
'- ers came to him after the game,
looking much like a lost son . . .
"Where am I going to stay to
::night, Mr. Higgins?" asked the lad
. . . The Hig, laughed, "You come
with me, Leon." . And now that
same player, Leon Joseph "Gates"
Gajecki, will take the long trek to
the Pacific Coast with no one to
guide him . . . Don't say football_
doesn't do something for a boy .. .
We think the happiest, and prob
ably most surprising speaker of all
at the banquet Thursday night was
"Dean of Deans" Burrell, locker
room custodian of athletic equip
ment . . . President Hetzel, who
really gets into the spirit of things
at these grid functions, poked back
at the metropolitan newspapermen
by saying that he had "played as
conspicuously as anyone this'year,"
and that.. he' ad even been "ac
cused of running the wrong way
with the ball" . . . It wouldn't be
-surprising if someone went crazy
trying to find Prexy's name in a
starting lineup just for something
to scribble about.
Frosty Battle Jayvees

Rec Hall At 8 Tonight
The lid's off and anything can
happen when the basketball Lions,
pepped up after their successful
55-21 shooting practice at Buck
nell, come to grips with Colgate's
Red Raiders on the Rec Hall hard
wod at 8 o'clock tonight.
The Hamilton, N. Y. outfit will
be made up almost entirely of vet
erans from the 1939-40 court squad
and is reputed to be one pf the
classiest cage teams ever to come
out of theChenango Valley.
Although John Lawther's pass
ers triumphed last year, 43-25„
Colgate improved steadily as the
season progressed and ended -with
a more than creditable record of
12 victories and six defeats.
Standout performer on the Red
Raider five is Captain Hank Faw
cett, a five foot, nine inch scoring
machine. In spite of being the
shortest player on last year's quin
tet, Fawcett averaged 11 points
per game to lead his teammates in
Ths starting Colgate lineup av

will give nothing away to the
Lions in this respect. The tallest
visitor will be Bob Taft, six feet,
four and a half inches of center.
In addition to Fawcett and Taft,
members of the Red Raider squad
scheduled to start are Bob Meeker,
forward, and Dud Leonard and
Jack Sullivan, guards.
The same five Nittany courtmen
who answered the opening whistle
in the first two encounters are
again Lawther's choice as a start
Captain Johnny Barr, who show
ed improvement in the Bucknell
rout after playing lackadaisical
ball in the Wash-Jeff heart-break
er, is slated to lead the team from
his forward position. Sophomore
Johnny Silan will be back as Barr's
running mate on the front line.
At center will be Herky Balti
more, another sharpshooting new
comer, while junior veterans Dick
Grimes and Elmer Gross will han
dle the back line assignments.
The weakest spot in the Nittany
outlook is the lack of experienced
reserves. Except for letterman
Scotty Moffatt, who is still unable
to stay in the ball game for any
considerable length of time, de
pendable substitutes are few and
far between. Next in line after
Moffatt are two sophomores, Bob
Ramin and John Linde, who will
probably be chosen to spell the
