Tho players themselves aren't htn.kfng about it, but the ever Itopo- .'ul fans have fmo visions. Tha team has gone through, three veld tests In the last few days. Ohio State, Nebraska and Montana all giving- the Panthers plenty of trouble. The rangy westerners on each occasion wero tipping tho ball into the basket over tho heads of the midget Panther guards. After games like the last three, ICowallls and Artrue are ready to go to bed and stay for a eouplo of days. However, many figure that Montana was Pitt's last hardest contest until Notre Dame. They forget (orgetowu, a c l u b that has ranked high for n. number of years.. Pitt's only advantage over tho boys from Washington, D. C- lies in the fact that tho visitors will have to play a game with Wost Virginia tho night before, which won't help their condition any, Tho race for scoring honors on the Panther squad has Plttsburg iuterost- pd, Willie Arturo has been comiiiK along at a great clip, and might beat Charley Hyatt out for high honors t h i s year.

Each got away to a flying start In the circuit last week and the meeting of the two pennant contenders has been a signal for unprecedented interest. Coach Clifford G. Dlckson has four of Irs five regulars from last year on hand. Hie fifth position has been illlpd by one of his first-string subs of the 1029 contingent which gives the Perryopolis outflt a decided advantage. Bruce Shearer of Dunbar, on the other hand, has but two of tho 192!) championship regulars. The other berths were taken by reserv-es who saw very little action, inasmuch as D. T. was pressed in virtually every fray. Close folowrs who have seen I/ei- sMiiiug In action contend that the cluh shapes up much bettor than tho 1929 champions which had its fill of individual stars. This year's outfit is a five-man combination and that moans a tremendous advantage over the last campaign's club. Persons whw havo witnessed Perry- Dunbar settos will vouch for the scores of thrills and action galore. The gymnasium is ox peeled to be taxed to capacity for this game.
