TEN THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., MONDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1939. SLIPPERY ROCK GETS VOTE AS BEST LITTLE GRID ELEVEN By BILL WHITE NEW YORK, Oct. 61 (/P).—On football's brighter side: This week's choice for the best known little football team in the land—the rip-roaring Rockets of Slippery Rock State Teachers College, Slippery Rock, Pa. Sit in on an gathering of any sidewalk quarterback club and sooner or later up pops the question, "how's Slippery Rock doin'?" Like the lady motorist who didn't , want to drive between Butler auc Youngstown, Pa., because the sign said "Slippery Rock ahead 4 ' and she didn't have chains, a lot of people don't know anything about the school that was given its oddly hu morous name by the Delaware In dians. A hasty perusal of the college catalogues (and don't write for them unless your mailman is big and burly) and a glance at tne Rockets' football record will show that there's nothing very humorous about the way the school carries on, either athletically or schblas- tically. One pamphlet had this to sty about athletics at old S.R.S.T.C.: "When athletics are so managed as to develop loyalty, confidence, and self control, stamina and courage, quickness of decision, clean living and a spirit of friendly rivalry, there is. much to be urged in their favor."' That "friendly rivalry" hasn't pre- Tented the Rockets from! winning six, out of a nine game schedule last year, capping three straight this season and being in a very nice way towards winning the mythical Pennsylvania state teachers college football conference! The school, so the catalogue says, has an enrollment of 550, a faculty of 65, a squad of 42 .and Coach N. Kerr Thompson, who is a fixture just like old Main, at S. R. for 25 years, thus making him dean of the state's coaches. And they're going to name the new football SHOGKEV field In bis honor. Thus the school that has taken o y er—solely through a funny bone- tickling name—the spot once held in the nation's football hears by non-winning knox can cheerfully take a good natured ribbing. And the answer to the sideline quarterback clubbers 1 question is. "Slippery Rock's doin' O.K." TX, HOW DIP yOU GET [RID OF YOU* DANDRUFF? USE YOUR head when you buy furniture. Cboos* new suites and odd pieces for smartness, of course, but keep an eye peeled for upstanding quality, too. In a word, do your choosing here at Shockey Furniture Co.! Here's the laugh of the week, inspired by an unknown gridder, and related by an official after the Syracuse-Georgetown game: A back was returning the opening kickoff when he was hit amidships by a small foeman. Dragging him along the back kept moving forward, until hit simultaneously by two other opponents. Down went the four in a heap, with the big- guy on the bottom. "O. K. boys, you can all get off now," he said. "This is the end of the line." CATS SCORE v SECOND WIN Williamaport Soccer Team Team Downs Victor Hosiery. The Williamsport Wildcats scored another win in the Western Maryland <* iccer league yesterday afternoon when they defeated the Victor Hosiery eleven on the latter's pitch by a 4 to 1 score. Play was hard and clean throughout the- contest with the Cats scoring in the first half on a nice head shot by Long. At half time the Cats led by a 1 to 0 count. In the second half outstanding work on the part.of the winners produced three more tallies while the Victors registered once on a penalty shot. D. .Griffith. Crawford and Andrews played outstanding games for the losers while the work of the entire Wildcat team stood out. In the two league games played' the Wild cats have scored 12 times while holding the opposition to four scores. Lineup am 1 summary: Victor* PO Wildcats Griffith G Beattie Crawford ....
