THE PITTSBURGH SUNDAY POST. NOVEMBER 19. 1916. f THIRD SECTION PAGE FOUE Tech Eleven Closes Successful Season PLAID EARNS HIGHPLACE IN GRID CIRCLES Creditable Showings Made Against Famous Teams. Minor Foes Are Mauled. STEFFEN GETS RESULTS Yesterday's contest with the great Pitt team closed the most successful football season in the history of Carnegie Tech. It also finished the career of five regular mem'bers of the Plaid as representatives of that classy little aggregation. It also rounded out the third season of the Skibos under the coaching of Walter Steffen, the former University of Chicago captain and All-American quarterback. w ita rtrrTvl ilnr-inff the season. Tech takes its place among the leading light teams of the East, u not me touhu. Tt nlnvAri seven eames. three of them witb famnus teams, in which it was out weighed. Only one of its four minor opponents scored on uecn, ana in iea.ni was Bethanv College, which Is ably coached by Fred Heyman, the former Wash-Jen: star. The season was opened very early, Tiale being met in the initial game, at New liivon Kmtpmlifr aft. Marshall, at half back, and McFeaters, at tackle, two of Trch's most reliable performers, were inedible for that engagement, and Altdoerffer, the star fullback, was suffering from an abscess on one or nts arms aim wns nnt oven able to make the trip. Thus weakened. Tech was unable to play Its best . game either defensively or offensively, yet it held the Ells to a 2"-to-0 score. aie suDsequeniiy nas proved that it is better this season than at any other time in the past five years. Following the Yale game, Tech returned home and met Bethanv on Tech field. The score of that game was 31 to 7 in the Fla'd's favor, Bethany's touchdown rcsnltine from a Mocked kick, which rolled over the eoal line. In the next three games, against Grove City. Alle gheny (Tech's olii sectional rival) and Th'el College. Steffen's men rolled up a total of 154 points as against none. Grove CItv was downed, 8 to 0. Allegheny was beaten. 77 to 0. and Thiel succumbed. f.! to 0. Thus in its four minor Rimes Teeh scored 1R5 points as against 7 by"' its opnonents. Until a few years ago these team always were a match for the Plaid. After the Thiel game came the trio to Tthaca. N. Y.. where Cornell was met on Its home srrlrllron. The trame was nlvprl in a steadv dow-nour and witb a rPld a son. of mud. Th's a Med the heavier Cornell team materia'lv in its eronnd-trnlnlnsr and prevented Tcn from nsinsr its aer'al attnck. but- Tech scored a touchdown nevertheless and held the b'g Bed team to a 15-to-7 count. o erame wns plaved the following Saturday, and the curtain was rung down with yesterday's clash with Pitt. KESNER TO BE HONORED? Altogether the record of the light Tartan eleven Is a most creditable one. Material of a high order was very scarce and Coach Steffen had hardly enough good players to give him a half-dozen reliable first-string substitutes. To go through a tough schedule calling for games with Yale, Cornell and Pitt under ' these circumstances, and to make good showings each time out, notwithstanding the fact that several stars were ineligible or injured at various times, is to be regarded in the light of a real plucky performance. Present indications are that there will be an aftermath to the Skrbos' hlghly euccessful campaign. Sunny Kesner, the crack little quarterback of the. eleven, who drew generous praise from Walter Camp, , Tad Jones, Al Sharpe and other famous Eastern authorities for his excellent work in the Yale and Cornell games, is a leading candidate for the . quarterback position on one of Camp's three all-star teams. Ifhe is thus honored it will be the first time a Tech player has h.een named on the official 'All-American list, and It will be a rare tr'bute to his ability, as it U a difficult matter for a player on a so-called minor earn to receive such recognition. The players who finished their careers as Tech gridders with yesterday's game are Captain Whltey Hellstrom, center; Kesner, quarterback; Fletcher, guard: Altdoerffer, fullback, and Gibson, end. Their places will be hard to fill, but Coach Steffen, who Is signed to coach the local team two more years, hopes to build together at least as good a team next year as the one which has just finished Its schedule. BASKET BALL NEXT. A preliminary football schedule meeting was held last week, but no definite action was taken. Several big teams will be on the 1917 schedule, fbut no hint as to thetr identity has leaked out. Yale and Cornell both want Tech to return for games, and these trips may be taken a Fain. However, It Is known that several other big elevens are after Tech and that any one or two of them may be accepted. With football out of the way, the Tech followers are turning their atention to basket ball. A squad of about 50 plavers has answered the first calls for candidates and there is some good material in the - bunch. Coach McCulloch shortlv will cut the squad to about 20 of the best players and then practice will be begun in earnest for the opening games, which come immediately after the Christmas holidays. Finley. the football right halfback, who was one of the stars of the floor team last winter, will go out for his position. ' and Phil Marshall, the other football halfback, who was a star passer at Pea-body High school, but who never went out for the cage sport at Tech, also will try for a pos lion. Prospects are bright for a better team than that which represented the school last season. PANTHERS PRESSED HARD TO WIN FROM TARTAN TEAM, 14-6 fConflnua From Page One.) Incomparable sheet, that the TMtt Panther, of which you micht have heard. Is slated to be fed this Saturday upon a rather lisht but extremely airy (breeay) bill of fare. Just to keep the week-end from becoming monotonous, they're call ing ii n frame. At least. It will be easy pickings. The menu of this liKht lunch will be onr well-known friends from across the way. name-lT- c"rnR"e' Pets, the pride of Woodlawn avenue." v The college scribe was right in one cardinal point. The Pitt Panther did dine on the Skibo outfit, but, oh, gee. the Panthers almost ruined their nice, fine white teeth, and they've got ind gestion this fine morning, too, nor will their tummies feel comfortable for a week or more. The process of assimilating Tech bore some resemblance to a duck swallowing a frog -ft-mighty gulp, but he made it! Pitt was up against it from the start. The Panthers were forced to play as safe as possible, because they've got a mighty hard game with State ahead of them, and it's a bad place in the schedule for the varsity to get banged up. But. though the Pittites were anxious to save men for the Turkey-Day conflict. Warner did rot dare pull out the regulars, for Tech was fighting so furiously that at timea even the first string was unabls to hold the gray-clad warriors in check. MANY PLAYERS HUET.

"for keeps' and the players played with a vicious intensity that barely kept inside the law. Time was taken out frequently for injured warriors, the lighter Techites being of tener the victims. Thus Tech lost Fullback Altdoerfer early in the came, and a misrhtv stood man he is, though as fragile and as easily hurt as china.

And -t'itt lost Tnornniii at tne very end of the game. Other fellows were bumped but stayed in, notably Kesner, who was slammed mighty hard every time he carried the ball; Gibson, Kelly, Sles and some more. TECH IS JUBILANT! The Techites regard the game as a moral victory, and not without reason, from kick formation. iciren piaj r u i The Tartan team was carried, collec- ; fairly good game, and so did M;ller.

The impressive and joyous ever staged within Forbes Field- walls. The Pitt partisans conceded this triumph s by out-arabing the Arabs in the stealing-away process. But who can grudge the Techites their joy in the accomplishment of their team? "Verily it is some stunt to hold the Warner machine so low, score on it and outplay it at periods of the game. Tech has a right to jubilate to their hearts' content, and Pitt, instead of feeling sad, should be glad that the Panthers came so well off from the most dangerous encounter of the season. And it was a spectacular battle, too. And mostly on the flat. Tech tried the G rs - - - nana -iiiof - - n ? rr r ? 1" I .i, t,,v,r -cit;r,o- -,,.tti- the clumax on Tech's second half effort to score. The heave was from Kesner to Early, who played fullback, after Brun- I wasser. Altdoerffer's predecessor, had re- ! tired. It was made after Tech had worked the ball to Pitt's 15-yard line and stuck : there, and Kesner, who had failed a , dropkick from the 41-yard line, a short time before, prepared for it by faking as to dropkick from the 25-yard mark, i Instead it was a heave to Early, way back of the line, standing alone. PITT PASSES INTERCEPTED. Pitt essayed the skyline 11 timea and; completed only one for a gain, the second, from DeHart to Miller, being good for a 27-yard gain that put the ball on the Tech 12-yard line in the second period, and paved the way for P.tt'a earned touchdown. Four of Pitt's passes were Intercepted by Tech backs, Pitt losing the ball thereby. It was not Pitt's day in the air. The details show that Pitt made 14 downs and Tech nine. Pitt, without a doubt, gained more ground by rushing that Tech, although the interference was not forming fast enough. Pitt's running attack was robbed of Its power in the first half by frequent off-side penalties infl'cted by Knox, who was most pestiferous this way. As it happened, these penalties kept Pitt from scoring at least one more touchdown. Tiii ata tort Its - 1 a late In the first half hour to score, time 1 being called with the bll on the Pitt 17- , yard line. It started when Finlay inter- cepted a Pitt pass on the Tecih S4-yard line. and. aided by a couple of penalties, j iecn moved up tne neid ny end runs and , line plays. The whistle blew too soon for the test to come in that period. TECH'S GRAND DRIVE. But Tech's offensive lasted over the intermission, an unusual thing, and In this quarter Pit didn't once have the ball in ech territory. Inded. ech waa threat ening Pitt all the way, and Pit was equal to making only ne first down in this octjs.ou. r.iL wHs.ioreea to k.ck to save. Its goal, and for this period m masred to ' he quarter ended h's possession on with the ball in Tech Pitt's 2S-yard line, and after changing goaja i ecn marcnea down and scored. Twice Finlay broke away in the third period for runs of 20 yards, and Kernes got some nice gains, too. After the Tech touchdown Pitt started back as to sweep the field. Morrow was hastily warmed up and shot Into the game, bad ankle and all. Pitt received the kick and, started by a 25-vard return by Morrow, Pitt moved up the field, slowly and surely, as to a certain score. Tech, its task done, seemed to slump, but it recovered in time to hold Pitt for downs on its own 23-yard line, and the ball was punted after Finley had made eight yards in two plays. Pitt started another charge from its 25-vard line, and tried every trick to score, working its way to Ihe Tech 52-yard line, where, with time growing short and 10 to go, the forward pass was resorted to as a last desperate measure. Four times Tech smeared it and got the ball when Kesner Intercepted the last one and brought it ba.ck to Xtm taxUntf lpl ":r "''J j ' 2 MM':S point. Then time was up, and the game was over. Pitt wasn't really dangerous in the second half, although it gained a deal of ground in the fourth quarter. . Pitt uncovered nothing new in this game, save a. further development of the latteral pass, and Tech had one. too. Pitt didn't dare show much, for the Penn State eleven, enmasse, after beating Lafayette Friday, was scattered around the field making notes. For the benefit of ths scnuta will kv that -what they learned yesterday will do them very little I j m i t- .. rr-1. t:h 1 1 i - - -.,.. ,j n,A i ,1 be a. d fferent proposition, and the old . playe will go so fast that State won t get a chance to recognize them. . . i The Tech offense wa-s varied and bril- . liant, but unequal to the task of gaining j very consistently agafnst the ltt enas and lines, though Kesner and Finlay broke away a few times. Its best development was the use of Kesner as a staling horse, and the spectators were treated to the sight several times of Kesner shooting one way like the dickens, trying to act as if he carried the ball, with tne play going uip otner way Kesner and Finlay were the offensive i tars ior iecn . eacu m ' Marshal and Gibson, it seems, were the bet defenslv-ly aUhough the whole team covered Itsef -,th Dood and piory. About the onlv man on the Pitt team who played his usual game was Captain Bob Peck. He was a rower on both offense and defense, and spoiled -the ll?CL?Z '.S1 played well, but not up to standard, and Tech specialized on 'breakiner up his slides on tackle, and around the end on the double pass. He was harder to stop when running Pitt plays didn't seem to fool Tech, while Tech had some that Pitt had to see once or twice before diagnosing. WILLIAMS TAKES COUNTRY HONORS FROM OLD MAINE BOSTON.

"Tech played twice as good a game against us as they did against Cornell, when I watched them through the game," continued Pop. "They surprised me. Steffen has made a great team out of mighty fine material. I don't want to 'alibi.' but it must be anparent that we were not up to our usual form. If I had thought Tech would be this lough, we'd been better prepared, but at that I don't believe we'd beaten them by many more points. Te-h showed us a team two or three times as strong as "the one Wash-Jeff let us look over. The Pitt-Tech game is the coming' football classic of this section." "It's the hardest game I've played in for two seasons." opined Jimmy DeHart. "If you call that Tech team a 'bush-league outfit.' kindly show me a bijr league team," said Andy Hastings, who watched the game from the bench. "It's the best I've ever seen in action." "They fought us awfully hard," said Peck. "It's just as well that we scored that touchdown at the beginning of the game. We've got to hand it to them. We congratulate them heartily."

State's Freshmen To Play Pittlets Rival Yearlings Will Struggle Next Saturday on Forbes Field. With the football season on its last legs, the University of Pittsburgh's gridiron teams are preparing for their final games of the year with the Penn S ate elevens games that shape up as their hardest tests of the season. Th Pitt freshmen line up against the Center county yearlings at Forbes Field, next Saturday for the freshman championship of State, and the Gold and Blue varsity is carded to meet the Blue and White senior team in their annual classic on Turkey day. The game next Saturday ; between th junior elevens of the two 1 schools will give the fans an opportunity to look over the material that will go to make up the varsities for the next few years. Both teams have made envia.hle records. State has defeated the strong University of Pennsylvania's first year team, and sev-real of the normal school elevens. Pitt, with wins over the Syracuse freshmen, and Bellefonte Academv. has made a.n equally imposing showing. Since Pitt. State and Penn are the only colleges in Pennsylvania to enforce the nne-veir rule, the winner of the contest will he awarded the freshman championship of he state, Sta'e ha.ving previously eliminated Penn. This being the first year that Pitt has had the one-year rule, is the initial meeting of the two teams. Plans are being laid to bring a lare delegation of rooters down from S:ate College to cheer their fledglings on to victory. These along with the large number of State alumni in this district, who have signified their intention to be present, will give the visiting srridders a good backing. With the Warnerltes idle for this week end. the entire attention of the Pitt followers is being directed to this match. If Stae is victorious "in the game on Thanksgiving day it will leave the foot ball championship of the Keystone state In a hopeless muddle. Pitt has defeated all the Important teams in the western part of the state besides I'enn. On tne other hand State, although deteaten ry the Quakers, has ben victorious over the stronger teams In the eastern part of the state. Stae"s overwhelming victory o-ver Lafayette Friday, and their win of the week before over the s'rong Lehigh eleven, helps bear out their claim that they were decidedly off form when they lost to Folwell's "squad earlier in the season. Harlow's men have great latent strength and If going at top speed as they now appear to !be golnsr. they should make the champion Pitt team look to their laurel-. The State game marks the passing of three of the greatest players that ever wore the Pitt colors. Cap ain Peck.
