Although victors over Maryland and
Navy, Penn has lost games which
townsmen here feel ought to have
been pushovers. The Penn State loss,
for instance. However, reports have
emanated from the Quaker sanctums
that they've developed a smashing,
wide-open offense for the invaders,
An innovation in the Penn lineup
will be Capt. Bob McNamara, a guard,

generals among the backs prompts
this move.
In Bill Miller and Don Dresher,
Harmon has a pair of backs who can
move and who'll likely persuade
Michigan to hasty committments dur-
ing the game. Jim Connell, Mike
Burke, a capable punter, and Jim
Coulter, the line bucker, complete the
On the line, Schuenemann, an in-
jured end whose presence will make
a world of difference, say the ex--
perts, will make an effort to start.
Otherwise, the front boys are ready
for action.
Penn's line averages 197 to Michi-
gan's 195 pounds. The Quakers have
a 181-pound backfield average to
175 for the Maize and Blue. Equipped
with several unscouted plays and
newly reported enthusiasm the Penn
squad will be ready to halt Michi-
gan's three-game winning streak. But
as'Dan Smick warmed his toe up this
afternoon, the discerning men were
noted going away conjecturing the
possibility of "another one-pointer."

Big Rivalries
Have Nothing
On Frat Feuds
What distinction can Minnesota vs.
Michigan or Indiana vs. Purdue rival-
ries claim that Michigan fraternities
touch football teams can't?
Michigan and Minnesota fight for
the little brown jug (empty). Indiana,
and Purdue have an old oaken bucket
at stake in their game, but the Greeks
have their own jug (also empty) and
oil can to match them. Perhaps the
big time rivalries are a little older but
certainly they are no more fiercely
Oil Can
One of the most unique trophies
is that for which Theta Chi and
Theta Xi knock each other around
the field. It is an oil can that bears
the scores of former wars. Right now
by virute of a victory several weeks
ago it rests in the trophy case at the
Theta Chi house. This years contest
was the fifth since the rivalry started.
Probably the best known fraternity

touch football game is between Sigma
Alpha Epsilon and Phi Delta Theta.
A homecoming morning special, the
game is played in the S.A.E. bowl for
the aforementioned jug. The Phi
Delts have been victorious the past
two years.
Grudge Battle
What could be more peaceful than*
the "friendly" State street neighbors'
Chi Psi and Beta Theta Pi playing in
a long time rivalry for a barrel (not
empty). You're right, a war.
Injuries to the Chi Psi dog, the
Beta's windows, and the fact that last
year's game was a scoreless tie made
this year's annual affair a real knock-
down ,drag-out contest. Chi Psi won
6to 0 but the Betas claimed moral
victory because they were able to be
up and around inside a week.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Sports Editor
is in Philly allegedly covering the game.
THE SITUATION at the Michigan
Daily last Saturday night was
tense. The results of the day's pig-
skin classics were in, and twist the
figures as he might Colonel Pete Lisa-
gor, Daily grid picker, could find only
12 winners for his 25 tries.
Angry crowds swirled about the
barricaded doors of the Publica-
tions building demanding tha
Lisagor reimburse them for- their
losses incurred when they bet ac-
cording to his dope sheet. He
was even at the time being hung
in effigy from the third floor of
Helen Newberry. There was talk
of lynching.
At the moment when the wretched
Colonel thought his mug of woe was
overflowing an incident occurred
which almost caused him to end it all
by leaping down the dumb-waiter. A
sizzling spitball caught him neatly
abaft the ear and in it was found a
note which contained but two words.
"Charlatan and Fake." The slightly
mucous missive was signed "Falstaff."
The wretched figure slumped a
kit deeper into his overcoat and
took another bite from his cheese
and tomato sandwich. "That ends
it," he sighed, spraying crumbs
before him. "Sticks and stones
may break my bones but this Fal-
staff, who never picked anything
but cigar butts, is too damn much.
I'm going to Penn next week and
get away from it all."

H AVING thus abdicated, the Colonel
mustered what dignity he could
under the circumstances, stepped into
the Sandwich Man's basket, pulled
the lid, and was smuggled through the
mob which was now being goaded to
further skullduggery from a rein-
forced soap box by that Bulbous Be-
Immediately after the depar-
ture of the man who had so longj

a meeting between the halt and the

In the Spartan picture, Ron Alling,

vaders from Pittsburgh.
A Sellout
Carnegie . bears the scars of four
defeats, but has shown it can rise to
heights when the occasion calls for
it. Tech lost its opening game to
New York University, 18-14, bowed
to Purdue by a single touchdown,
7-0, lost to Temple by the same score,
and played a hectic afternoon of foot-
ball with Pittsburgh, losing 25 to 14.
Bright spots in the records are vic-
tories over Notre Dame, 9-7, and a
6-0 triumph over strong Duquesne.
The way State officials continued
to push game ducats across the of-
fice window indicated the game will
attract a crowd of 23,000-a sellout.
Should this happen, it will be the first
time that the recently enlarged sta-
dium has been filled to capacity.
