nes Begin Intensive Drilling For First Yale Invasio

Duquesne Students Routed By Hoses In Victory Celebration
.. Sz' "
.. ". .,.
Not quite satisfied with upsetting a favored Pittsburgh eleven in their intra-city struggle last Saturday,
spirited Duquesne students decided to rand the Pitt campus after the game. Above they are shown being beaten
back by fire hoses as thie Panther followers routed their attempted' invasion. Scores of city policemen were
called to he scene of action to 'keep peace. Pitt's loss to the Dukes was the first setback ithat Charley Bbw-
ser's squad has suffered this year. Last week they were rated as the top team in the country by the Associated
Press .taff. After Saturday's defeat the Panthiers were voted eighteenth best :by the same writers this week.

Brundae Declares
Ol ympiacs Cancelled
If War Continues
CHICAGO, Oct. 24.-(,P4-Avery
Brundage,.president of the American
Olympic Committee, said today the
1940 Olympics games will not be
transferred from .1felsingfors, Fin-
land, and if conditions in Europe pre-
vents their being held as scheduled
they will not be held at all.
In the event no Olympic Games
are held next year, Brundage said,
it is probable a set of Pan-American
games will be arranged to fill out the
1940 program. Cities which have ex-
pressed an interest in staging -a sub-
stitute program are New York, Chi-
cago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San
Francisco, Havana, Cuba and Buenos
"Once the Olympic Games are
awarded to a city by the International
Olympic Committee," Brundage said,
"they cannot be taken away unless
the agreement is violated by the city.
The games cannot be held, however,
in a country at war. The winter
games, therefore, will not be held at
Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany,
unless hostilities cease."
Pointing out that the Finns have
made a big investment in time and
money, Brundage said: "Since the
time is too short for proper organi-
zation,. it may be definitely stated
the games will not be transferred."

Minute Examination...
Those hardy souls who compile
weekly football standings are in a
rourage class by themselves. Every
day after the compilations are re-
leased, their findings are subjected to
the most minute examination, some-
times by very minute persons.
Some one reported this conversa-
tion between a pair of the more criti-
cal observors in that den of criticism
and observation-the Union pool-
room. And some of it is not without
"Say, pallie, didya see dat list of,
football teams dat the Associated i
Press ha4 in de mornin' pape?
Does it stink? Don't dose guys
know nuttin about dis game?"
"You said it," replied his more
grammatical but as wide-awake "pal-
lie," "they are slightly amiss in sever-
al of their calculations. One of those
was the placing of N.Y.U. ahead of
such aggregations as Minnesota and
Alabama. It's deplorable."
"Yeah, and how da deuce do
dey put Notre Dame in da run-
ner-up spot? Specially ahead of
Michigan. All dey do is win by
kicking points. It's depl ..., to
bad, aint it, palie?"
Quite an interesting place, the
Union poolroom.

Between halves of the Chicago
game, Fritz Crisler told the referees
that if they saw any of his lads go-
ing for touchdowns and at the same
time saw any slight or imagined in-
fraction of the rules,: they shoudn't
hesitate about calling the play back.
It is mindful of the apologue of one
of the late.knute Rockne. coached
teams in the late teens of the 1900's
when George Gipp was running wild
for Notre Dame,
It was the opener for- the-Irish
and Rock wanted to keep his boys
from becoming overconfident.
So he told the officials to call
penalties if they saw his boys
scoring too much.
Well, the officials were very oblig-
ing and in the first five minutes, Gipp
ran 88 yards for a touchdown. The
referee blew, his ,whistle, called the
play offside and penalized the Irish
five yars. On the next play, the
Gipper ran 93 yards for a touch-
down but once more the ref gave a
toot on his blaster and again called
the play offside., Then, on the very
next play (say, this Notre Dame
team must have been good) Gipp ran
the 98 yards for the score. But the
official . was persistent, blew his
whistle and called the Irish off-side
Gipp walked slowly back to the
line of scrimmage, tossed the bll
to the kill-joy official and said
nochalantly, "Just a suggestion,
ref. In the future give me two
toots to run and one to stand

Incidentally, Clark Shaughnessy
denies that he had anything to do
with shortening. the time of the
quarters in last week's game. If this
is true then the game could be pro-
tested since it is only with the agree-
ment of the two coaches that the
length of the game can be abbrevi-

It happened at football prac-
tice with the varsity running wild
' against the scrubs. It had just
opened a mile-wide hole in the

line when' Fred Olds piped up
with "now if we can only get
Yale to play this system."

Paul Kromer, whose distaste of
physical activity is likened to Bennie
Oosterbaan's, was trotting off prac-
tice field and when he passed Crisler
the coach asked him how his injured
knee was. "Pretty good," he said.
"How's your conidtion," asked"
Crisler. "Think you could play
about ten minutes Saturday?"
"Ten minutes? I could ;slay 60.
You learn how to loaf in a game."
State's Frst eam
Has Week's Rest
Michigan . State College would be
worried about the excess of injuries
on its football squad had it not al-
ready planned to give a variety of un-
tried sophomores the heavy duty
against Illinois Wesleyan here Sat-
A week's layoff should put most
of the cripples back in shape in plenty
of time to get tuned up for Syracuse
the following week.
With three of the varsity guards
on the hospital squad, line coach
Tom King had a perfect excuse for
putting into effect a month-old plan
-testing his sophomore linemen. Few
of them have seen any action this
season. The experienced varsity was
needed too much. /
Mike Masny, an experienced re-
serve who has been out of action sev-
eral weeks, was getting limebered up,
again and George Danciu and Bill
Rupp, second-year men, were show-
ing that the coaches have little to
worry about.
