of representatives of the two academies

PERSONAL TOUCHES IN SPORT
By EDWARD B. BUSHNELL
Disciplining lagging football players by
dropping them from a training table Is
something new In gridiron strategy. But
hereafter any man who partakes of the
carefully selected food at the Pennsyl
vania training table will have to play
football up to the standard set by Coach
George H. Biooke. This training table Is
to be an exclusive place, and a seat there
will be a seat of honor. Hleven players
found that out yesterday.
This Is distinctly a Pennsylvania Inno
vation, and tho idea is a good one. There
Is no ground for any of the men dropped
yesterday and sent back to their own
homes or boaidlng houses to get their
meals to feel that they have been unfairly
dealt with. Every player now knows that
he has set before him u standard of elll
clency which, if he maintains, will assure
him a place uf h-nor at the Quaker train
ing t lhle. Failure to meet It means that
he will be summai!l dropprd. Still there
will be no limit to the number of players
who may be at the table. As Captain
Journeay said, In commenting on tho
new rule, they would have W men at the
table if 50 mm could be found who meas
ured up to their standard.
Porhaps it was this drastic ruling on
the coach's part that put new life into
the Quaker eleven estcnlay. Anyhow,
the varsity regulais went at the scrubs
with more spirit thnn the have shown
any time this season. In 15 mluutt-s' time
the regulars took tho ball across tho
scrubs' goal line three times. Two of th
touchdowns weie made by Merrill and
the third by Av-ry. This big halfback
took a long forward pass from Irwin, who
replared Merrill at quarterback, and then
d ished 41 yards dow n the Held fur the
