LA vu E Q T ' WAYNESBURG GAME 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. ,Pittsburgh brought her Eastern championship football teani' to New Beaver Field for the first time since 1902 to aid in the annual celebration of Alumni Homecoming Day.

HIGGINS Coach 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 disheartening odds. 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 competition. 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 ' a - 'vnu W'1I 1' 'r nice Harper lubler - Mm en he Sli ld lhauel M ers Zdlxvhcki Subach Thomas Lnutu R.

DICKINSON GAME 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- P' 5,-Iv---q we 3 3 I v v Q,-,'E51j:'w 2-.'
