Stadium had witnessed splendid defensive rallies on the part
of the Lion forward wall, which held the Temple offensive
from touchdowns several times. One of these courageous
stands came when the heavy Temple eleven had but inches
to go for a touchdown.
Twenty thousand Orange fans sat in Archbold Stadium,
October 24, and Watched their undefeated Syracuse eleven
desperately trying to hold the 7 to 0 lead it had taken in a
first-quarter drive, outplayed and outfought by a savage
Lion attack which fell short of scoring three times only by
the narrowest of margins, and ended the exciting game with
a first down on the Orange five-yard line.
The game goes in the record books as Syracuse's first vic-
tory over Penn State since 1926, but those who saw it will
never forget Phil Moonves' ninety-yard return of tl1e second-
half'-kick-off. Captain l..asich's line-ripping plunges, or the
vicious tackling of Stempeck and lVlclVlillen.

The Nittany Lion of the gridiron this year stalked through its leanest season-
ten games which left little on the right side of the ledger as far as victories were
concerned, but gave Penn State tradition glowing memories of a fighting squad that
came up smiling even in defeat, a leader whose great ability proved an inspiration to
those fighting by his side, and a coach who matched grim determination against
Bob Higgins faced his second year of coaching at his Alma lVl'ater with prospects
which were anything but bright. Of the forty men who attended pre-season drills
in September, only six'were letter-winners, and the majority had never seen varsity
A fast, speedy Yellowjacket eleven from the hills of Waynesburg scored early
on a forward pass and held the Lions at bay through the remainder of the contest
to annex a surprising 7 to 0 victory in the first game of the season. The Lions re-
covered from the sting of this unexpected defeat and downed Lebanon Valley the
following Saturday, 19 to 6. This was to be the only victory of the season on New
Beaver Field, however, for two weeks later, an under-rated Dickinson eleven thrilled
the Dad's Day crowd with a brilliant passing attack which gave them a 10 to 6 victory.
The Lions met Temple in football for the Hrst time this year. The game resulted
in an expected victory for the Owls, hut only after the crowd in the Cherry and White

Lion fumbles in the opening quarter gave her an early four-
touchdown advantage which the improved second-half play-
ing of the Nittany eleven was unable to overcome, and her
ultimate 4-1 to 6 victory was never in doubt.
The Lions played their best home game of the season
against Colgate. The highly-touted Maroon offense inet stub-
born resistance in the first period, the quarter ending with
the Lions holding a 7 to 6 lead gained by Moo-nves' pass to
Brewster and off-tackle run over the goal line and Captain
Lasich's successful try for point. ln the end, however, the
Hamilton eleven's strong reserve power enabled them to
march down the field for touchdowns in every quarter and
a 32 to 7 victory.
Against the heavy Leopards, the Lions began to show the
strain of the diiiicult succession of games they had gone
through and fell easy prey to the Maroon passing attack by
a 33 to 0 score. Magnificent defensive play by the line in the
first half staved oif the Marquis scores, but the tired Lions
weakened in the second quarter to permit two Lafayette touch-
