Minus McLaren. Shonrrf Improvement pBNN put up a better came than Washington and .lefrerson. which t-eans that Pitt also improved in the last week. The Warner machine was running smoiitb.1) on Saturday and the pla.n went orf without a hitch. Knowing that John V. Helsnian, of Oenigla Tech, was in the crand stand. his edisle eye tnkinK In eer)thlns that happened on Hie Held, the T'ltt coach stuck to his old style of play. He even failed to use Mcl.aie-i. the treat fullback, for fear nt bavins him V fyPf- lhe Panthers worked without f 'Irani (jiuj . It must be remembered that Saturday same was the second of the Reason for Pittsburgh. A team, can set out and practice every day perfecting its plays, but It takes actual competition to set thoe p!as off properly. In practice the men grow careless in regard to the use of lrindi and offside, and as a result are penalized severely In the games. Against W. and J. Pitt was soaked many times for this Illegal stuff, and Saturday there, was more of the same In the first period. After thru the players settled down to their work and behaved beautifully. Another reason for the penalties Is that Pitt had the hall mot of the time, and it is the offensive eleven which commits most of the fouls. 'Pitt showed a Mg impnnement In blocking, Interfering, tackling and running with the hall. The famous reverse play was as bewildering as ever, the thrusts off tackle were swift :tlid deadly and the end runs swept everything before them. No one can beat Warner's interference. It seems vas if every man on the team Is ahead of the runner, and when a tackier appears he Is swept of his feet by a flying body. One by one the opposition is taken out of the play until the runner is clear. - lITAItXEIt'S teams always ha.-e heen well eoaehi d in the nidi- ' meats of the name, and this system has proved its value for the last ticenly-three years. The men knoie uhai to do and how to do it. That's all there is tr football, anyway. Davies Football Find of the Season tHHEhK is a young pen-on nu lhe Pitt team named Tom Davies, who looks like the best plii)er that has broken into the same in years. Dayles is a shifty, speedy, clever pln)er. solldl) built, and wl en it comes t traveling fast, has the other athletes looking like cab horses In a race with Eternal. This young man Is playing his Hist year with Pitt, but already has carved his name on the honor Toll. As n Held general he Is the best the Panther have had since the days of Jimmy Ue Hart and he also plays an excellent game on the defense. Uunning with the ball, however, is Tom's long' suit and he Is in a class by himself. 1 have seen all of the good ones for the last fifteen years, InA eluding Walter ICckersall, Charley Barrett, of Cornell, and Johnny Barrett, of, Washington and Lee, and Davies looks Just as good, fie la if strong, powerful runner, a skillful dodger and a hard man to tackle. ' In the second period lie got awiy with one of the most sensational runs I have seen in years. He took the ball on a straight hunk, and when he reached the line stopped sudden!) when a I'enn man was about to tackle him, squirmed to one side, avoided another tackier and whirled into the open, Hotrvey. Shorty Smith and Tiraun were after him, but hu slde-ttepped and used the stiff arm all the way to the goal line. It was a 38-yard run, but so unusual that It took an eM'eptlonally good man to get away with it. Davies will be the star of the country In another )ear. ArrilE linemen were not so strong and fiom tackle to tackle were ' kept busy by the I'enn forwards, fr'feui, the center, was hit on the head and forced to retire, Kcndricks taking Ms place, man played the brtler game. Individually Pcnn Linemen Played Good Game SPEAKI.NO of linemen, no fault could be found with the playing of Captain N'eylon. Locke, Crawford, Frank and WIthlngton, for individually they gave excellent accounts of themselves. These boys were causing trouble qn every play and more than held their own against their opponents. Frank in particular was iiulte active, driving throijgh on. every play and stopping many line bucks. Crawford was nervous nt .the start niul this affected ills passing, but after the first period lie was as steady as a veteran. Penn didn't have the ball long enough to show much on the attack but on the defense everybody worked hard. Danny McNlchol hurled his ' 155 pounds at the line time and again, throwing back the Pitt runners and preventing many gains. Danny's work was surprising, for he never was flustered, played a steady game anil when calledack for forward passes tooH his time until he saw an opening to shoot the ball. His passing was y good, but the Penn men couldn't hold on to the ball. f Hopper played the best defensive game for Penn, getting' through SJc,' several times and tackling the runner BYBi"" 'n " lne len" learn, onoriy nraun anu tiarvey also performed well. m'h In the last period Joe?

Two more touchdowns came In the second Ul ,period and one each In t(ie third nnd fourth, Penn didn't make a first down r' from scrimmage, gaining only 8 yards around end and 13 yards through vthe N vMne In the sixty minutes of play.

The flreat 1,akcs crowd rubbed It In on Sandy's team. Those gons spotted ltutgci-1 fourteen points Just stood nslde while two touchdowns were scoured and then'proceeded'to clean up. PnBdy Driscoll, who quit major league baseball to become a gay sea dog on the briny, was the cause of It nil. Paddy once played with .'orthwes.Urrf University, which hides on the outskirts of Chicago, and made unite a name for himself In those parts. Up could run through n couple of football teams In an open field, but few In the east were hip to his piowVss. Paddy Uarrcd in WcM Out west, however, most of the colleges on the Oreat LakeH schedule respectfully but firmly declined to play with Driscoll. claiming lis was a pro fessional and his presence might spolH the attitude of the callow college youths. So Paddy was forced to stick(on the side-lints until the Rutgers g;ime. Driscoll stepped Into the limelight In tho second period with a run of RO yards and repealed a few minutes later with another from mldfleld. The second run was n dandy, for he found himself confronted by fhc husky Rutgers men, who uttered warwhoops nnn snouted. tor Ids gore. Driscoll could not dodge them or Jump over their heads, so ho put on more steam nnn ran inrougn mem. Pretty good stuff for n gob, we'd say. During tlip game Paddy was able to score but four touchdowns nnd kick three goals, but It 4vas enough for one afternoon. Ovcrconfidencc Put what was the matter with Rutgers? Critics have Ueen loud Mn their praise of the team, and boldly asserted that Pitt would have-a hard time in scor Ing a victors-. There is no doubt that Sanford has a powerful eleven, one that will score ngalnst any opponent, but It looks as If the players overestimated their Importance and when the tide turned against them exploded with a loud nang! Perhaps the men used thCmselve up In the first half on scoring the two touchdowns, nnd flopped when the Gobs went Into high gear. That may be an explanation, but the 54 to 14 score stnnds out in huge, figures, and we must hand It to the Great Lakes team.

Navy Swamped Ursinua , The Navy swamped Urslnus Saturday by the score of 127 to ft, which might not prove the strength of tho team, but shoWHaUhp players have endurance. The Great Lakes-N'avy battle will be worth going miles to see. Another star eased Into the picture out In Ann Arbor Saturday when Michigan wnlloped Syracuse. The hero lri question Is a Mr. Kteketee, who plays fullback for Mr. Yost. This guy put over pome big lengue stun when he scored n touchdown nnd booted three goals from the fleld, making every one of the 15 points. To make his net look stronger, Mr. Sleketcc did nil of his goal-kicking In a heavy rainstorm, which iinturaly dampened the field and made the ball wet and slippery.

Cornog Starts Rally ' Allle Cornog booted a field goal from the jlfl-ynrd line In the third session nnd In the fourth quarter, the League Island boys swept through Brown for two touchdowns. The final service touchdown was made by a young man who wore "Tl" In large numbers on his back. He 'replaced 'Cornog when the' former Swarthmore captain was disqualified Tor mixing It with Cushman. an opposing end, nnd he tore the Brown defense npart with his line plunges. No. twenty-seven was listed In tho program as Slaughter, and the player lived up to his program name. It wasn't his name but he lived up to It anyhow.
