S. Cicero Gezich Stokes Carter Killen Svhinsk The following Saturday the In- dians won their first home game against Edinboro 20-0. Early in the first half the Redskins were deep in Edinboro territory. Fred Ruthko plunged savagely off tackle for the first tally followed by Ted Grundy ' s kick making the score 7-0. Late in the first half Nosal ran 37 yards for a second tally with Ted Grundy once more converting to make the score 14-0. In the fourth quarter Grundy circled the end and went over for the final tally. Next came the celebration of the year, Home- coming Day, with Slippery Rock providing the competition and what competition it turned out to be, for the visitors scalped the home team 13-0 in a sea of mud. Although the Indians acquired more first downs than did the opponents, they lacked that scoring punch. It was in the lirst quarter that Johnny Kaufman hitting off his own right tackle broke through the Indiana forward wall and ran 37 yards to score for the Rockets. Kline ' s kick for the extra point was good, putting Slippery Rock in the lead 7-0. It was then that Denbow in the second period hitting off tackle went over for the final enemy score, making it 13-0. Indiana threatened only one time during the game, that being in the third quarter. The hrsf two are the toughest. 130

The Indians Basketball Season The 1940 Indiana State Teachers College basketball team played a total of 18 games, winning 12 and losing six for a percentage of .667. Although the Indians did end up in hfth place in the State Teachers College Conference, which includes thirteen teams, they really had a successful season under the tutelage of the new head coach, Robert Timmons. Indiana opened the season on January 6 when it was defeated by St. Francis on the local floor by the score of 30 to 22. This game was featured by the brilliant play of three of the freshman stars, Brant, Duffy, and Hogg, who started their first season for Indiana in impressive style. Joe Sariscak, captain, contributed his usual excellent floorwork. On January 9 the Indians hit their stride when they smothered the Clarion invaders, 45 to 21. Brant held the honors as high scorer of the evening with 11 points while the very capable sophomore, Gene DeMatt, played a bang-up game, scoring 7 points. On January 13 the team played its first away game at California where it added another victory to its list when it eked out a 38-32 win. Hogg was high scorer with 10 points while Joe Sariscak and Bobby Killen played very impressive floor games. Playing their second away game on January 20, the Red and Slate continued its winning streak when they defeated Lock Haven, 38 to 34. Bobby Killen came through with 14 points. 132
