Pittsburgh Panthers Only Obstacle in Penn State's Onward March to Eastern Football Title
Hugo Bezdek s
Nittany Lions
Still Unbeaten
?Coach Warner's Pitt Crew to
Attempt to Redeem Dis?
astrous Season Tomorrow
By Ray McCarthy
penn State stands to-day on the
threshold of the Eastern football
ehatnpionship. But blocking the door
;o that coveted goal is the man-killing
Panther, and to get by State College
will have to do some skillful maneuver?
ing to-morrow afternoon. There is no
doubt, tnat if the Nittany Lion can out?
fit his chief rival in this struggle,
which promises to be extremely
ferocious, it will have the right to
claim the Eastern title. It has gone
through one of the toughest sched
_jM of any college in tho country
without having suffered a defeat.
But beating- the Pittsburgh eleven
trie hardest job good old Hugo
Bezd^K will face this fall. Nobody
knows that better than Bezdek himself.
Pittsburgh faces a situation similar
ta wha. Harvard faced before the
Yale game. In spite of a sound coach?
ing system, a system that has been a
consistent winner for the last five
vears. it stands to wind up its most
disastrous season in years.
A Penn State victory would certain?
ly be a fearful blow to Pitt. Warner,
with an experienced team containing
seven: stars, was expecting a wonder
it! season this year. The contrary '.
?as been the case. Therefore you can
wager your old straw hat Warner is
going ?to leave nothing undone to win
> morrow.
has a great team, to be sure.
Bui r is meeting one of the best in
the East to-morrow. That statement
goes, despite the.fact that Lafayette,
Nebraska, Washington and Jefferson
have all beaten the Panther.. We
don't know exactly what the cause of
these defeats was. Probably Pitt's op?
ponents were superior. Each game was
the narowest of margins. But
we ?know that Warnex is a good coach,
that he has a fine array of veterans,
including the nifty little Tommy Davies
and the ubiquitous Herbert Stein, than ?
whom there Is no better center in the
Regarding the relative strength of
the 'wo elevens we shall have more
to say later. Just at present all know
;r?!! men realize that there will
be a battle at Pittsburgh to-morrow
which will be a thriller in every sense
?af the word.
A Question we often hear debated, j
which is applicable to baseball as j
well as to football, is. "Do the I
players make the coach or does the
coach develop the team and men?" You
can site many examples to prove either
side of this case. There is Glenn
Warner, for instance, admitted by all
to be one of the greatest teachers in
ame. working with experienced
players this year including several
iffering one of the worst
seasons he has had in years.
There is Hago Bezdek working with
a practically green eleven and bringing
it through the hardest kind of schedule
to the final battle undefeated. There
is "Buck" O'Neill, also ranked as great,
who is finding that Columbia is one of
the best places in the world for a
coaeli to lose his reputation. The?e
is Frank Cavanaugh at Boston College.
Last year he had a marvelous machine.
This year it isn't so good by any means.
There is John Heisman at Pennsyl?
vania. Down in Georgia John was a
wizard while handling Georgia Tech.
There is Gilmore Dobie at Cornell?
last year a fizzle, this year a wonder.
We leave you to figure it out for
yoursel . Our opinion is that good
eoach?s are few indeed, but that the
best of them need the material. If
you haven't got the players your
system isn't going to work out.
However, to our way of thinking you
can generally tell whether a team is
well coached or not by its smartness
or by the manner in which it takes ad?
vantage of the little things that crop
out in a game, the "breaks" as they are
For instance, in the harvard-Yale
game last Saturday O'Hearn made the*
mistake of failing to touch down the
ball after a free kick had failed. Ma
comber was down the field and nailed
the ball over the line for what would
have been a Harvard touchdown had
it not been that the ball went out of
bounds. It is easy to aee that Macom
ber had been taught more than the
rudiments of this pastime.

Only two matches were played in
the Class B Metropoiitan Squash Ten?
nis League yesterday afternoon, bat
they were sufficient to make a decided
change in the positions of the teams
chasing the fast and undefeated Har?
vard team, which is leading the rac?
for the title. Columhia defeated D. K.
E? 4 to 3, and Princeton, showing unex?
pected strength, gave Montclair its first
trouncing of the season, the score be?
ing 6 to 2.
As a result of these matches Prince?
ton, which was in fifth place, moves
Into a tie with D. K. E., Montclair and
Crescent for fourth position, all hav?
ing a percentage of ,500. it was the
first victory of the season for the
Columbia outfit and, contrariwise. Mont?
clair suffered its first defeat, the lat?
ter dropping from the runner-up posi?
tion to Harvard, which has won three
matches and lost none.
The Blue and White racquet wieiders
were hard pressed all the way to win,
and had it not been for an unfortunate
default the result might have been dif?
ferent. The match stood at 8 all when
the deciding game, in which A. S.
Moses, Columbia, was to meet Charles
Stewart, D. K. E., was awarded to the
former when Stewart failed to put in
an appearance.
The showing of the Tigers against
the Montclair piayers, which scored an
easy victory last week against the
Crescent team, was the feature of the
day. H. V. Crawford and Frank Sellers
took the first two matches for the
suburbanites, and many of the gallery
were of the opinion that the visitors
would register a shutout.
Then John Neely, George Walker jr.,
A. M. Killer, A. D. Mittendorf and J.
M. Denison followed in order for the
Tigers, and each left the court vic?
torious. It was an amazing comeback,
and after the Princeton men had re?
gained confidence they swept through
the visitors without a halt.
