FaOM time immemorial it has been the custom to send a football team to a theater the night after its final and big game r of the season, on the theory, perhaps, that the gridders were too far gone to care what happened to them. But it is not thus -with the Pennsylvania State College management, which has broken a precedent by sending the Blue and White eleven that will trot out against the Pitt Panthers at Forbes Field this afternoon, to a theater last night. f Now perhaps it was done for the same reason that condemned men are given a treat on the eve of execution; perhaps it was to perfectly anaesthetize the State footballers, so that their sufferings this afternoon will be minimized. For State, players, students, alumni and supporters all, are prepared for the worst, and the green eleven from Mt. Nittanay, which has proved itself one of the heaviest scorers in the country, is given only an outside chance of winning from the Panthers, and even a5l " score would send the Blue and wnue adherents home in a happy frame of mind Massillon Tisers Meet Youngstown Before Cantonians First row Higgins, right end; Czarneckie, right tackle; O'Donnell, right guard; Conover, center; Parrish, left tiard; Krushank, left tackle; Jones, left end. Back row Ewing, quarterback; Beck, left halfback; Hess, right halfback; Captain Clark, fullback. But this timt of sending the gTldders to a show last night may have quite another effect. If they went to "the same theater we attended yesterday afternoon, the least we can see is a disastrous defeat for Pitt this afternoon. We're mentioning no names, for the play-factory At' which the show In question hangs out 1s t probably one of our cash customers, l)Ut If the merry merrymakers react upon the Cerrter Countians as they did upon us, they're mad enough to fight huaz-saws by this time, and getting madder every minute. Think of spending an entire football season working likell up in the woods, only to come down to the metropolis and be handed a raw deal like that! Now if we could only discover what show "they went to last night, we'd know how to lay the 10-dollar bill we wager upon the annual game ! HAD BRIEF WORKOUT. The StAte football squad, numbering S4 Including 24 gridders, and coaches and camp-followers, dropped into town via the East liberty gateway at 4:10 yesterday afternoon and were hurried in taxis to Teoh fr4d where they stole a few minutes' workfcv before dusk had quite become darkness- Then they went to the Schenley, dined al took in the aforesaid show, after whlo.'r they were whisked homeward in taxis and ent to bed. And a litle after 6 o'clock came the main body from up State College way. : There were 800 students and the band in this section, besides townspeople and alumni. Several thousands of State adherents will 'be In town for the game from points outside of Pittsburgh, and the State students rooting section will hold about 1,000. while a few hundred more students will be there with their girls. And we must not overlook the State band, which always has been a pleasing feature of the big grid classic here. With any sort of weather at all, there will be the biggest football crowd of local history In the Forbes lot this afternoon. At noon yesterday all the Teserved seats In the gigantic grandstands were gone, and this morning the Pitt management j will have about 60 uncalled-for ones for sale at the grounds. As the reservations are gone, particular efforts will be made o handle a crowd in the bleachers, field stands and around the lines. General admissions will be sold at Spalding's, downtown, today, and at the field beginning at 10 o'clock. The doors will open at noon, as the job of getting the crowd Inside the lot is a slow and tedious one. FIELD IS HEAVY. The field undoubtedly will be heavy this afternoon, as it has little chance to recover from the soaking it got early in the week, and even a bright sun and trony wind this forenoon would not dry it up. although they might make it less unsuitable for speedy maneuverings. The condition of the grid la going to have a big effect upon the game, from both, strategical aJid spectacular standpoints. If it is very heavy and damp, much of the pleasing open features of the modern game will be lost, as forward passes, tricks and long runs will be hardly possfble. And, this condition, too, would affect the size of the score, as no team can! get up its best offense under such circumstances. It also increases the dangers of play and puts a bigger premiums on the "breaks." But the field will have to be bad. Indeed, to interfere seriously with the performances of two .such well-groomed teams a.s those of Pitt and State. Pitt Is almost a prohibitive favorite in the betting. The Panthers are a veteran combination, while of the machine which faced the Pittites here a year ago, only four will reappear in the Pena fitate lineup today. They are - the big tackle Czarneckie or "Zarney"; Right End Higgins, who proWbly will be State's next captain; Stan Ewing, the old Central High star, who is at quarter, and Captain Clark. Clark, by the way, is playing his last game for State; all 1 others will be available next year, with the Mseeption of a couple of subs, Morris .''bfldJOberle. PITT AT FULL STRENGTH. - The Pitt machine probably will be seen at Its best today, and put up a game inferior to none it has played thl3 year, not even excepting that played against Wash-Jeff, which was the high-water mark of the year, although it was good against Penn and Syracuse. For one thing, both Andy Hastings and Jimmy Morrow, who have been nursing leg injuries, will be in, as grood as new, and Hastings was out of the Wash-Jeff game. Claude Thornhill's arm Is strong again, and he is expected to distinguish himself in today's game, the last of his career. Captain Bob Peck and fRlght End Pat Herron also are playing their last games, and no doubt will be keyed up to herolo efforts. Kendal f Soppitt will sit on the bench. This should have been his last game, too. but his last game was that against the Middies, and the big guard, who was headed straight for the All-American, has been forced to quit the grid for all time. There is little to say about the "prospects" today. Both teams are drilled until they're at the very highest notch of efficiency, and the State squad, having 'been brought along gradually and pointed for this game, probably will give Pitt a whale of a battle. Personally, we can't see how Pitt can be beaten. But it's not impossible. The "breaks" will play an important part, and State has a pinch field-goal kicker in Edgerton, who will be called upon to drop-kick a goal if the Blue and White gets within striking distance. Harlow's men will do their best, but Pop Warner has gotten his team into well-nigh perfect shape, and, unless it goes all to pieces tomorrow, there seems to be only one answer. Though the teams are almost evenly match in weight, with Pitt perhaps having a few pounds the advantage, there is a vast difference in the individual excellence of the men, and. besides, Pitt has a way of sinking all personality and individuality in a team play of pleasing and effective unanimity. But the result? Wrell it's all on the knees of the gods that preside over fields on wheih the pick of our college youth struggles. And nobody really cares how the Brown-Colgate game turns out, anyhow. ROBERT UNGLAUB, BASEBALL PILOT, CALLED BY DEATH BALTIMORE, Md., Nov. 29. Robert A.

The on'y score of the game came in the second quarter after Clairton had carried the ball half the length of the field. Duquesne took the Jump at the beginning of the game and brought the ball to Clalrton's five-yard line, where they were held for dowr-s. This was the only time at which Clairion's goal was in danger, inasmuch as the remainder of the game was plnvod In Duquesne's territory. The lineup: CLAIRTON 3. DUQUESNE 0. t Rhine R.

A football expert, years ago, Would never even dream Of placing any western gent Upon his All-Star team. But years have passed j and times have turned And customs changed tnc then. And football critics have a heart When picking All-Star men. Today, ichen o'er the expert dozie We study and we scan We find upon an All-Star team At least one- Western man. It teas a Kansas evening, The farmer's work was done. V "Upon the All-American They've picked my rough-necked son. He taught them guys geography And 'twas a famous victory." TOO MICH! The Arctic explorer returned From lands that were covered with snow, From lands where the Northern Lights burned And breezes were eighty below. "We invite you," the faculty said, "To witness a gridiron gam e Where once, in the old days, you sped And tackled and punted to fame." "I have waded through blizzard and storm," He said with a catch in his breath.-"I have come back to get myself warm, And you guys want to freeze me to. death!" iPlRE FLATTERY ! Ptt gridders will pick a eapriiln tonight. Not that this ceremony bothers Glenn Warner, but then it's conventional. HO! HUM! Strike of Players' Fraternity looks much like a food boycott. Either way you pla it, someone's going to 6tarve. Possibly, kind reader, you think you have a right to kick about the high price of beef, but what if you were a fight promoter trying to talk business with a heavy-weight champion? PURE WASTE ! Owing to the European war, Swiss cheese has gone up. Diplomats have expended so much air that there is none left to fill the holes. A frozen field often makes a difference In a football game, but a regular player can always play fast enough to keep warm. THANX. Thanksgiving Day brings us little to be thankful for. It Is true, it brings the end of the football season, but opens the football postmortem season, and of two evils we choose the former. INTERNA TIONALS WOULD PLAY BALL WITH A. A. RIVALS If Germany really wanted to spring an effective deportation stunt, we suggest that the Dutch raid Forbes Field this afternoon. "OVER-EXPOSED." "Explorer will remain in Arctic zone." they say. He's probably afraid to come home before Thanksgiving for fear someone would take him to a football game and freeze him to death. Yeggs robbed a batik in Kansas of $12,000. but the darn fools overlooked a dozen of eggs next door. BOTH GOOD ONES. There are two ways to pick an All-American" football team. One is to close the eyes and pick a lot of names out of a hat with the left hand. The other is to close the eyes and pick a lot of names out of a hat with the right hand. EDUCATIONAL. Football is a great aid to geography. Scribes have discovered that football players grow as far wet as Minnesota. NEW YORK. Nov. 3. President Edward G. Barrow of the International League announced here today that he -.-111 advise his club owner to play only a 112-gatne season next vear anl a post-season nerves of n games with the American Association. Barrow said he already has talked the situat.on over with the American Association im-n and they are tnthusiastie over such a series. Barrow will recommend ! fiia cinv. that they open the regular season on April 15 and close it on August 5. In a 4S-game postseason 6eries, each International League team would play three games in each American Association city, and vice versa. If practicable. Barrow said, the winner of this post-season series would play the cham-p.on team of the Pacific Coast League for the championship of the National Associaton I.arrow will put his suggestion before his club owners at their annual meeting here.

If You Want Your Money's Worth Just Examine This Golfers Prepared For Holiday Sport In past years Thanksgiving Day has eeen the local links well populated, and today promises to be no exception. Golfers hoped, that today would be dry and cold, as much of the pleasure Is taj!n from the game when the ground is soft and muddy. However, the real enthusiasts do not mind the woa.Uier conditions and will be out today. At the Oakmont Country Club thcra will be an 13-hole medal play contest for points on the first and second holiday cups. Few of the other clubs will hold contests and those that do will make them 18-hole mer3l play sweep- j stakes. ' Temporary greens ar now In play gtvnerally and the short game is largely a matter of luck. The Indoor school at the Twentieth Century Club will be the only indoor course of large size In the city this wintt.r, although thre are a number of priv-ace nets. The nets the Twentieth Century Club are in the basement and ari open to the members aa well as their husbands and families. Ixv-k-ers, showtr baths, putting greens and everything necessary for a first-class indoor school have been installed, and the nets promise to be a popular resort for the metn as well aa the women during the months when no golf can bei played out-of-doors.
