TT AVU.L he a bit of a "Rolshcvik"
, eleven that Pennsjlvnnia will face in
the battle with Penn State on Franklin
Field this nftcrnoon. The lied nnd Blue
will line up against these .so-called
"Bolsheviks" for the opening kickoff
Not that there has been any Reds on
the Bezdek team. The fact is the
only thing red about the State boys is
their blood. But nevertheless it is( a
partly "Bolshevik" combination that
will form the opposition to the Quakers.
Up at Stntc this season Hugh Bezdek
developed two teams of almost cfiual
strength. One he called the varsity and
for that reason the other team got
peeved, termed themselves the "Bolshe
viks" and started to do everything ex
cept throw bombs at the so-called var
sity, "Bolsheviks" Win
The "Bolsheviks" were matched
ngainst the varsity and the first eleven
was lucky to get away with theirjer
seys. They lost the decision in a "reg
ulation football game last Tuesday and
then Bezdek decided to select men from
each team to form the eleven that will
battle Penn this afternoon.
Tho new team practiced together for
the first time since last Wednesday, and
it will he this new combination that will
endeavor to contest the supremacy of
the Folwell machine.
But Stnto is by no menns inexpeii
enced. All the men are veterans, nnd
they know the game. Their fighting
spirit has been aroused and the fever
for victory against tho Bed and Blue
is running in triple figures.
It will be the twenty-third mceling

Captain Swendsen was inclined to
treat the case lightly, nnd said :

and the officers did not have the proper
control over them, and some arguments
