The Pitt Panther Iia 3 been sharpening Its claws in the woods near Wlndber, pa.. In preparation for what appears to be the hardest schedule a major university team ever attempted. The 60 stalwarts ninon whom Doctor Jock Sutherland bases his hopes for victory over Notre Dame Stanford; Ohio state, Army, Pe:ra, Carnegie Tech and others have lived outdoor life for two weeks In the rugged hills 20 miles from I Johnstown. i • • • . I Work and Sleep I To reach the camp a visitor must take a dirt road throng!) Ihe wilderness. Farmers tell -mi It Is a "couple of miles down the holler." During the summer an engineering school is held there. The camp, consisting of ' n ro.v of wooden shacks and a mess hall, is turned over lo the football he- rocs for two weeks. II should be an excellent engineering camp, because a man almost had lo have a theodolite lo find It. The young men who will batile in ten hard games that ta'ie :hcm all lhe way from Mcrgir.i- lown, W.

Call of the Wild The camp is for men only Probably the only danger Jock's football players are up against at Windber is on occasional bear. The woods are wild, and Sutherland liopts his young Panthers catch some of- that spirit, because he needs wild men to carry out a schedule that the coaches view with alarm. Dinner in the mess lull, around 6:30, Is a noble institution It is much like an army gmt, room, a'ilh long tables flanked by benches. The lads park there for their biscuits. Naturally full dress suits are not worn. Many of the players wear short* all day long. Some, stripped to the waist, wear only duck pants All of them cat like majors. Young collegians bear plates to ihe diners, nnd Ihls correspondent finds his loaded with a huge chunk of meat loaf and a baked potato. There is a heap of toast, as hard as zwieback, on the table and plenty of butter. One long dish contains celery and stuffed olives. The dessert Is a starchy pudding. Huge pitchers, containing milk buttermilk, coffee, cocoa or water are placed before the diners The «x»a is excellent, but the coffee is milder than, the kind served by most restaurants. + * * SrilHs the Seasoning There is a din of conversation, clattering of dishes flncl an occasional prank, such as when n IM- Ijound tackle playfully drops a pepper cellar Into his pals buttermilk:. Then there are guffaws all around. In Hie evening, some of the l:oys Rather on the gridiron tliat ties been planed oil between the towering hills and kick the ball around until dark. Sutherland, wearing n wind-breaker to kce>> off the keen cvenint; cold, looks on, delivering now nnd then some shouted Instructions in a voice that retains a faint Scottish burr. Tlie coach was born in Scotland, by the way, and did not. reach America until he was 18 years old. flc Is lull, slender nnd with a determined jaw.

Sport Writer Declares Dempsey Was Finest Of All Fighters. BY WF.RNKR LAIJFKR Dempscy was the- greatest of all. He steered the fight game to lhe Eiime high place whare lialw Ruth brought baseball. There is an odd parallel of poverty between the two. lluth was on orphan, a friendless boy from an Industrial school In Baltimore. Ucmp^cy was a bum from the rods, a freight train passenger, the low- cst gender In the scale of hoboes. Yet Uicy both reached llic point where the enlhuEinslic cries of lliou- sniKls urged tl:cin on! Dompscy win continue as a legend after it lias been forgotten what the man looked like. He arose by punching power above the scorn and suspicion that clouded his earlier efforts. They hooted him as n World War slacker, and thousands cheered him to the skies as a cheated champion. At Chicago, 104.93 of tlie popeyed "fancy" hoped Gene Tumiey would stay "out." And the controversy that followed that long count by Dave Harry still resounds through the fight world. At Hie start he was a xl-J from Colorado riding the rods cast. New York scoffed at him after John Lester Johnson, colored giant, broke his ribs. Dempsey went (Way, met Jack Kearns In a bar-room and came back to New York as champion. The fight world knows no more amazing tale. A man who admittedly dived for Jim Flynn, a fat lias-been heavyweight in the west, became a tiger who attracted S2,- G58.QGO worth of paying worshipers at Solders' Field. • Arid that affair at Soldiers' Field' was staged by'a Dempsey who was well past his lieyday-a mnn trv- mg to come back, fighting desperately to the verdict of Philadelphia when a cool and calculating cx-raarine slashed him to ribbons on a rainy night. These things are well-known, but no less a'onder/ul. Picture the man BABE'S /£ ^_,;.
