West Virginia 7 Pittsburgh 2 7 VARNEY FERRARA MARTIN PITT 27; WEST VIRGINIA 7. Superior power and more speed figured in the victory of the University of Pittsburgh over West Virginia by a 27-7 count at Pittsburgh, Oct. 12. Pitt, wtith " Pug " Parkinson, " Toby " Uansa and " Josh " Williams slashing and tear- ing behind a wall of interference, put .the Mountaineers under with two touchdowns in the first half and two more in the third quarter. Williams scored the first touchdown for the Panthers on a 22-yard run around ..-nd midway of the first quarter to end a 6 I -yard march. T he Pitt outfit came right back and added another 7 7-yard advance, but were halted on the three-yard line by the Mountain- eers, but still packing too much power to be stopped they staged a 5 1 -yard parade and scored their second touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Williams to Uansa. The Panthers received the second-half kickoff and went unmolested through the Mountaineers for 73-yards and their counter. West Virgmia received the subsequent kickofi and got back to the Mountaineer 40-yard line. On the first play Stumpp threw a well-pitched pass to Bill Behnke and the latter galloped down the sidelines with good in- terference for the only West Virginia touchdown. Pitt ' s final touchdown was scored by Uansa in the third quarter after he had intercepted a pass thrown by Stumpp and raced 60 yards. There was little excitement in the final chapter, and neither team scored. Page One Hundred Seventy-Six

West Virginia 7 Duquesne 7 STUMPP PLASTER WEST VIRGINIA 7; DUQUESNE 7. When the Mountaineers were pitted against Duquesne University for the first time on Mounta-neer Field, Oct. 5. it developed that out-of-doors basketball was the style of athletic endeavor in vogue. Both West Virginia and Duquesne scored their touchdowns on long-range pass ' ng attacks, the Mountaineers in the last three minutes of the first half and the Dukes in the last three minutes of the game. The Varsity was spending its t me on straight football, piling up first downs on bucks and exchanges of punts, but lacking a scoring drive under such conditions. Duquesne could do nothing with the Moi .itaineer line, especially with Julian Scott, tackle, playing a remarkable game. Sensing an cpTortunity to use the West Virginia passing attack to advantage. Coach Ira Rodgers sent Eddie Stumpp into the game wth but three minutes of the first half to go. " Stumppie " picked out Capt. M. Glenn on three different occa- sions and ths duo completed three consecutive passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. G ' enn added the goal from placement. As the second half progressed, Duquesne still failed to make any impression in the Mountaineer defense and West Virgnia contented itself with conservative football. Fin- ally the Dukes haltsd a Mountaineer drive on then own 10-yard line. The Pittsburghers then started an aerial drve which was not stopped by West Virginia, finally culminating in a 43-yard pass from Benedict to Pratt f c r a touchdown. Capt. • ' Bifl ' Donnelli, the Dukes ' star kicker, added the extra point from p ' acement and the score was deadlocked at 7-7. The game ended soon after the kickoff without any other damage done.

Wets Virginia 26 W. L. -ARLE BARTRUC LEESON WEST VIRGINIA 26; WASHINGTON AND LEE 6 In spile of a sweltering heat which was more typical of a day on the beach than a session on the gridiron, the Mountaineers trimmed the Washington and Lee Generals at Charleston, 26-6, Oct. 19. With LaRue, Francis Glenn, and Jake Sebulsky leading the offensive. West Virginia ripped through the Genera ' s ' line for a quartet of touchdowns. Washington and Lee threatened early in the game by a recovery of a West Virginia fumble on the Mountaineer 34-yard strip. The Generals marched to the State 2-yard line, but there the Southerners were halted and relinqu ' shed the ball on downs. After kicking out of danger and gaining on another exchange of punts, the Mountaineers got a break which started them on the scoring spree. Midway of the first auarter Capt. M Glenn pounced on a loose ball on the Generals ' 20-yard line and three olays later LaRue plunged over from the 6-yard line. After re- ceiving the kickoff which foMowed, the Mountaineers marched cons-stently down the field for 65-yards and another score as Varney plunged over from the 2-yard line. Wash-Lee scored in the second half as West Virginia fumbled and a General recover- ed on the Mountaineer 30-yard strip. Two passes, both to Williams, giant end. gave the Virginians their only tally of the game. The Mountaineers -came right back wi:th .mother sustained march and worked the ball to the Wash-Jeff 25-yard mark wrom which point F. Glenn broke through the Gen- eral ' s ' forward wall, filtered through their secondary and was off for a touchdowkn. Washington and Lee started a passing attack as the game neared a close, and finally had one intercepted on her 26-yard mark, from which point the Mountaineers plunged it through, with Capt. M. Glenn finally tallying from the 3-yard line.
