v THIRD SECTION PAGE FOUB THE PITTSBURGH SUNDAY POST. NOVEMBER 12. 1916. V Lehigh Nosed Out by Pennsylvania Collegians PENN STATE'S LATEST HERO Penn Draws With Green Dartmouth Plays 7-7 Tie on Franklin Field at Philadelphia. QUAKERS SHOW BEST FORM SOME CARTOON IMPRESSIONS By Baker EDGERTON Tall Substitute Fullback Kicks Field Goal Which Beats j Lehigh. IN PLAY JUST ONE MINUTE SOUTH BETHLEHEM. Pa., Nov. 11. Edgerton. a tall Penn State player, with as cunning a toe as they make them. took part just one minute in the annual game with Lehigh today, yet during that time he kicked a field goal which spelled defeat for the Brown and White. Penn iitaie won this titanic struggle in Taylor stadium. In the presence ot 10,000 people. by the score of 10 to t. Penn State's line appeared much stronger than Lehigh's, the Brown and White only ibeing able to make three first downs on line-piunging. the other six being due to forward passes. Several of the eleven first downs that Penn State made were aided by heavy penalties. In th,s respect Lehigh suffered heaviest, for a total or fi yards to bo yards against the visitors. Once a SO-yard penalty for rougn piaying practicably prevented a Le high score. The brilliance of play was chiefly on Lehigh's side. In the fourth period, when Conover had kicked off after Ewjiig had scored Penn State's touchdown MaOfnnia receiving the ball, dashed through the cuiiin diub aiiu v nue line ror tsw yards being downed by Ewing on State's 3fi- yard line. Here Lehigh opened with her brilliant forward passing, a pass by l jitisaacs oringing tne oall to State s 10-yard line. I'nable to gain through the line, Brun-ner shot a short pass over the line to Me diums, nis aim was true, but the ball slipped through the heavy Lehigh man's hands. Following an exchange of punts Brunner shot a pass to Mclsaacs, which sailed 40 yards through .he air. The Lehigh plajer had a clear field, but instead or going ahead, cut in and was downed eigne yards rrom the goal. LeTjSh lined "P- as if to rush the ball. uui neinngton, wno nad replaced Cheno wetn at quarter, turned the apparent rush into a short forward pass over the iinc io nuriey ror a score. The most brilliant work by Penn State occurred the latter part of the third period and the beginning of the four.h. Ewing was the star. The third period was in its dy.ng throes when Ewing snaked his way 20 yards through Lehigh's line, and when his twisting form was I'liauy orougnt to earth he was on the Brown and White's 15-vard line On the very first play after the fourth perioa started, Ewing was entrusted with the ball ngain. He proved faithful to nis trust, Tor he side-stepped half a dozen Lehigh players and catapulted his form over the line for a touchdown. The Uneup: PENN STATE 10.

PANTHERS OUTPLAY RIVALS IN EVERY DEPARTMENT OF SPECTACULAR GRID BATTLE (Continued From Page One.) and the seventh first down was completed ! when Jimmy DeHart went o.-er for the i touchdown, and grant with us that it was marvelous in the face of such stern opposition. The Waeh-Jeff line, assaulted and pierced, penetrated and pushed back. stubbornly refused to crumble, crack or break. Instead it stiffened and fought harder as it approached its own goal line, and Pitt's gains were shorter and harder to make. Once midfield was passed it looked as if Wash-Jeff would halt the charge any time, but Pitt indomitable forged ahead, just making first downs by inches, sometimes, until the fourth down of the final string of first downs managed to reach the final chalk line. And the attitude of the crowd demonstrated the fact that this superb. this colossal drive, was appreciated.

It was time, for the secondary defense was crowding on the heels of the Wash-Jeff line. He called for the double pass. and. taking the ball from McLaren, slid off left tackle, getting one yard only.

We do not begrudge Gougler and ' Sies the part they played, but we wish Andy and Rendal had been able to take part in that glorious drive. THE WASH-JEFF SPRINT. When we started out to write about the magn.flcent Panther charge we were thoroughly convinced that it was the finest thine we ever saw in all our life J anyhow the -finest thing" we ever saw in the line of sporting endeavor.

And Gougler did mighty well, filling Hastings' shoes acceptably. Maybe, if Andy had gotten- in he'd have done bet- i ter, but Andy's absence wasn't noticed yesterday. Andy, it appears, had an ankle : that was too weak to trust in the game ' without risk of permanent injury, and j Gougler was "ripe." ; Nor must we forget Cannonball Mc-j Laren. It is George's misfortune that he fumbled three costly fumbles yester-i dav, but he made it up, and more. Two I of these fumbles were made in the first quarter, when Pitt had the ball on the Wash-Jeff two-yard line, and a score imrmnPr,t Both times Wash-Jeff got the ball. The first time this happened the break was onset Dy a counter-break when Carlson charged through and blocked McCreighfs punt, Herron, his running mate, falling on the ball for a touchdown.

Xov. 1L Pennsylvania and Dartmouth played a 7 to 7 tie football game on Franklin Field today. Penn outplayed the Hanover 4eam in every period and in nearly every department of the game and was deprived of a probable victory through a fumble which Dartmouth instantly turned to advantage. . It was In the third period that Dartmouth made her seven posnts. Pennsylvania was hammering the Dartmouth ine when the ball was passed to Hobby 'S111- He turn bled as he hit the line and Captain Gerrish picked up the bounding ball on Pennsylvania's S5-yard line, and was away before the Quakers knew what happened. He dashed 30 yards before he was thrown and In two plays Dartmouth took the ball over for the score Thielscher kicked the goal. Both teams made many substitutions In the final period, especially Dartmouth. Pennsylvania played hard and fast, get I iing me Dan on a touchback following an I attempt by Dartmouth to score on a forward pass. Pennsylvania carried the hall by line driving, short end dashes and forward passes to Dartmouth's 30-yard line. Then Barry was given the ball and breaking through Dartmouth's first defense and eluding the second, carried the ball 30 yards for a touchdown. Quigley kicked goal. The ending of the second period prevented what looked l!ke a touchdown for Pennsylvania. The Quakers, by dashing work, carried the ball down toward Dartmouth's goal. They played fast to save time, but the watch stopped them live yards from the line. Each team played good football, but Pennsylvania was the more consistent ground gainer. Dartmouth at times got her plays off slowly, while Pennsylvania's playing was speeded up when Berry entered the game. The lineup: PENN-7. DARTMOUTH 7. Crquhart L. K Dussolt Mathews L.

This bring.i us down to the line, whioh. though it met stiff opposition, mere than held rts own, except for a short period in the second half, when Wash-Jeff adopted Pitt steam-roller tactics and sained considerable ground. It was opposed by a mighty fine set of forwards, though they were a bit lighter and didn't have the polish, experience or power of their antagonists. Thornhill, who is closing his football career, distinguished himself. So did Seidei, his runniivg mate Sutherland and Sies were no inconsiderable factors lit the vicioJ-y. and Bob Peck was his unquenchable self, no less. His interference enabled Jimmy DeiHart to spring that 42-yards for a. touchdown on lhe only trick that Warner's pupils executed for any great sain. Stsuhl and Ililty replaced Thornhill and Seidel in the final quarter, and the team's play did not suffer by the change, so it follows that they performed acceptably. WASH-JEFF STABS. as it is witn the rtt bunch, so It is with Wosh.ioff tr.rrinn tv 4ih tv..i it" -it "JT LW - 1 " short of Pitt's best ia no fmnr nf th r - - . . us it? IJeaten. but not whinned. thev w.re always dangerous, always formidable, always trying. Their heads, "bloody but unbowed." are as worthy of the laurel wreath as those of Pitt's peerless eleven. To start picking out stars, without mentioning each man by name, would be an1 injustice to somtfoody, so we'll just declare that McCreight. Stobbs. Henry, Wimberly, Kuble, Drew and all the rest distinguished themselves more so in this defeat than they have in many a victory. But the most amazing part of the game is that the Panthers taught the.r guests how to use the forward pass. Gosh, we just wish some of those Eistern experts who raved over the way Wash-Jeff "sky-lined" against Yale, had seen the P.tt team today, breaking up and spilling the Wash-Jeff passes and executing their own. We never noticed it before, probably no one else did, either, but practically all of Pop Warner's standard formations are adaptable tc the forward pass, and such a variety naturally follow that the opposition was bewildered time and time again. It is a m.ghty ilium nating fact that Warner and his men delight to beat their opponents w.th their opponents' own weapons. Pitt didn't need the pass to w'.n yesterday, but the Panthers used the pass to roll up the score. When it is siid that Pitt tried 25 passes, of which 13 were completed for a total frain of 136 yards, nine failed or were batted down and three were intercepted, and that Wash-Jeff tried in passes, nine of which were completed for a gain. of 50 yards, nine were batted down and one intercepted, PiU'a superiority is apparent. When it comes ti passing. Wash-Jeff is almost a one-man affair McCrei?ht. Pitt's system brings all of the backs into play. W. & J.'S SCORING CHANCE. No game 'twixt Pitt and Wash-Jeff would be complete without a desperate stand by Pitt on its own goal line, fighting furiously to prevent a score. Pitt's goal was imperiled once, and once only, and, had it not been that the officials chose to inflict a 15-yard penalty on Wash-Jeff just at this most inopportune moment, the Red and Black would have rune up a touchdown. This chance came midway in the second peod Just after DeHart's 42-yard i run for a toucnaown. nenrys KicKon was high and short and leu nve yards in front of Gougler, who shot after it. but was beaten to the ball by a Wash-Jeff man, who batted it to the left. Gougler pursued it. touched it, but couldn't thumb-tack It down, and Stobbs fell on it on the Pitt 15-yard line. Stobbs made three at left end and two at left tackle, and McCreight shot a forward pass over the line to Stobbs for a first down on the Pitt 4Vt-yard line. Stobbs made one at right guard, then McCreight plunged for one more, but here Washington and Jefferson was caught for holding and a 15-yard penalty. W sh-Jeff was the 18 1 ne with th lin to make. McCreighfs first forward fa led and then, on a spread to the left, he 6hot one to Tressell for a la-yard gain. Tressell was down on the Pitt three-vard Mne. McCre'glit's forward pass to Stobbs was just spoiled by McLaren, and the Ked -and Black's great moment had passed. In closing, would say that enough things happened in that game to keei us writing for a week, but we can't get around to it now. We'll just say that the game was the cleanest we've ever seen played, and in spite of the intense feeling and hrd playing, no one transgressed beyond tv.. limits of eentlemanly conduct. A fine spirit prevailed and what few penalties were assessed were for technical viola tions only.
