"What Pennsylvania does nsnlnst Dart

, BUIila to what the Quakers' football foot
ers may expect In the Cornell Rnme on
Tlinnksglvluc Day. Defeat always takes
o(no spirit out of a man, and In spite of
the" wonderful reception which the Penn
sylvania undergraduates gave their beaten

Uul football inlinclcs have often been

by Harvard or some other early No

football o' tho year. It Is possible for
this year's team to make n similar record.

Sure War Effect on Ath
letics in Europe Is Very
As a result of tho devastating effects
of the European war, another Olympla
coach wishes to corns to America, IIo is
Ia Plnkhola, coach of the Olympic ath
letes of Finland. In a letter to Dr. R.
Talt McKcnzle, director of physical edu
cation at tho University of Pennsylvania,
Plkhala says we would like to return
to this country and coach some colleffo
or school team. Tho war, ho says, haa
practically killed athletics In Europe, and
although Finland Is at peace with tho
world, tho struggle has limited his work
to such nn extent that he would llko
to como to this country.
Plkhala nlso expresses the hope that
the Olympic games In 1916 will bo
awarded to tho United States. He says
that even if Germany should attempt to
hold the games two years hence, It 1
doubtful if nny of tho European coun
tries would compete IIo seemed to'tlilnk
that all tho European countries would
welcome holding them in this country.
Pikhnla 1b well known in UiIb country.
After the Swedish games In 1912 ho camo
hero nnd after taking n courso at tho
Springfield, Mass., Training School visi
ted all tho leading universities of tho East
to study athletic mothods, spending most
of his time nt Pennsylvania where ho
might watch tho work of "Mike" Murphy.
He completed hla first year as trainer
of Finland's athletes on November 1.
In his letter ho gives a very Interesting
description of his work and tho results.
In part, It follows:
"I havo given lectures on play and ath
letics in about ono hundred places. Onco
we had a ten days' courso for athletic
Instructors, and the boys seemed very
much Interested. Tho athletic standard
has risen conspicuously. In July wo com
peted Jhgnlnst Sweden, Germany, Den
mark and Russia at the Baltic games
hold In Sweden. Tho Swedes scored 65
points, Finland GG points, Germany 18,
Denmark 8 and Russia 0. Four ot our
best men wcro not entered, among them
Kohlemalncn nnd Anttlln, a mllcr of
whom you will hear somo time. In all the)
weight and javelin events wo scored first
nnd second. Myyra and Pcltonen both
beat tho previous world record for the
Javelin ln splto of the rain and heavy
weather. In tho running broad Jump and
running hop, step and Jump wo made a
clean sweep. In the heavy rain the Ger
man and Swedish crack failed to cover
21 feet 6 Inches, while three of our men
scored over 22 feet.
"I wlBh with nil my heart that 1916
games would bo given to America. I
think that Wnshlngton, D. C, Is too far
South. From tho European viewpoint
Boston would be the most suitable place."
The facts set forth In this letter provo
that Finland has mado remarkable prog
ress In athletics alnco 1912, when the Finns
were third nt Stockholm. The chances
nro that If the games were held In this
country In 1916 both Finland and Sweden
would bo represented by their best ath
