Maroon Squad Has Practice
on Soggy Field; First
Game Saturday
The wet weather of Inst evening
kept down the attendance at the
evening scrimmage of the Tech
High football squad. Captain Frank
and Coach Smith were on hand and
ran the players through signals,
while "Tony" Wilsbach was given
plenty of practice kicking goals
from placement and from the field.
The big fullback also practiced goals
after touchdown. Doubtless he will
have plenty of opportunity In the
games this year to kick a great manj
goals after touchdown.

finest High Schools and gymnasiums
in the State. While Tech is sure of
winning. Allentown will without a
doubt give the Maroon warriors a
good run.
After enjoying a fine season of
baseball, local sport followers are
keen for the thud of the pigskin.
Tech will start the season with six
or seven Varsity players in the
lineup frtsn last year's championship
