Now that volleyball has secured
a strong hold on Harrisburg, there
is to be one of the greatest seasons
in the history of this Indoor game.
Through the efforts of the Zembo
Pntrol team the public has been
brought into this sport. Heretofore
it was confined to gymnasiums and
athletic clubs. Here is what John
Swank, sports editor of the Lancas
ter Intelligencer haa to say about
this sport:
"Volleyball has been benefited by
the war possibly more than any other
sport on the athletic calendar. He
fore the late unpleasantness on the
other side of the brine, which put
Willy Hohenzollern in the discard,
volleyball was thought of only as a
girls game. Now it gives promise of
becoming one of the greatest indoor,
as well as outdoor sport.
"Uncle Sam saw the virtues of the
game and leagues were organized in
the various army camps throughout
the country. Even on the other side
the game was played to a great ex
tent. Volleyball always has been on
the list of gymnasium sports, but
was neven very popular with the
grownups, the youngsters being the
only ones who played it to any great
extent. During the war, however,
grownups took up the game and
found it to their liking with the re
sult that teams are now being or
ganized in even - city in the United

"Harrisburg has gone volleyball
mad, and at least six or eight leagues
have been formed. Lodges, clubs
and other organizations have organ-
Beck Is Looking Better
in Penn State Lineup;
Anxious to Defeat Penn
State College. Pa., Oct. 28.—T0 de- |
feat Penn on November 1 is the ,
aim of every Penn State football j
player and coach, and with this ob- j
ject in view, the work of the past j
week has been harder than at any ;
time during the season. It is fully i
realized that Penn has a strong team (
his year and that they will be hard j
•.o beat next Saturday, but every Penn ;
State man is determined to do his j
best to carry the Blue and White j
to victory.
The Dartmouth defeat was not un- |
expected, for while it was believed !
that. Penn State had a fighting chance j
to win, the coaches were not very j
optimistic. The team play of the!
Blue and Wliite eleven had not been ,
sufficiently developed at the time to !
comhat the machine-like play ins of j
the big Green team. As was ex- |
pected, Penn State's line proved no i
match for Dartmouth's veteran ag
gregation and as a result, the Blue
and White backfield was given no
chance to show anything.
Several new men have been show
ing up well of late, among them
being Black, Bear and Bentz. Beck,
the formere halfback, is at last be
ginning to learn the fine points of |
'line play, and he may be the very
man to bolster the line. MacKenzte,
the red-haired center who has been
on the sidelines with a bad knee
for almost three weeks, is again back
on the job and he will be a hard
man to keep off the team. Rauch j
and Osborn, two former centers, are |
being tried as guards and their work)
has also been improving. j

ized teams and spirited contests are
the result. Lancaster is at present
only represented by one team, but
the sport is one of the most popular
on the calendar at the local L. M.
C. A., and it is thought that other
clubs and organizations will take up
the game.
"Those who are not familiar with
the game are of the belief that the
game requires no skill in the playing
and that any person can play the
game. True any person can play it
the same as football, baseball and
basketball and other sports, but to
play it as it should be played re
quires a great deal of practice. Like
in all athletic games, a certain sys
tem must bo used on the attack and
defense to make a team strong.
Teamwork is the main requirement
for a successful volleyball team, and
to gain this essential much practice
is required.
Individual Points Not Scored
"Volleyball has one distinction
from any other athletic game, in that
it is impossible to tell which indi
vidual scored the point. Mainly it is
the opponent who scored the point
lor the opposing team, because he
fails to return tha ball. Points are
counted, of course, but no individual
gets the credit for scoring the point
as in other athletic games. Another
point in favor of volleyball is that
young and old alilcb can play the
game without fear of injury, as in
other branches of athletics. It is, for
this reason possibly that volleyball
is fast coming to the front and ex
ponents of the game claim it will be
one of the major sports in the near
joe Choynski Explains
What Real Kidney Punch
Means to Ring Fighters
San Francisco, Cal., Oct. 28. —''One
| punch that the fighters of to-day do
\ not know how to use is the kidney
I punch." said the veteran Joe Choyn
| ski. recently.
"To us old timers it is amusing
I to sit at a tight and hear remarks
' about the kidney punch when some
i third rater reaches over the shoulder
. of the man he is fighting and slams
! him with the open hand on the back.
| Ad Wolgast. a world's champion, was
i supposed to know how to use the
i kidney punch. But even Wolgast did
not use it properly.
"The man who introduced the kid
ney punch was Danny Needham, and
| there's never been another man who
j could use the punch as Danny could.
I The kidney punch is a jab and not
i a swing. And it doesn't land on a
I man's back. It lands on the soft
! part of the side—just nboVe the belt.
| One kidney punch or two, though
j painful, will not he very effective.
"Needham specialized on the punch
j and sometimes landed it as often as
! a dozen times in a round. He'd keep
using it until the other fellow's side
was blood raw and he caved in. And
all the time, remember, it was a
jab, just a poke and a twist of the
wrist and the sinking of the first a
few inches into the soft flesh."

Young Mahoncy Meets Sammy
Sehiff at Steelton on
Joe Barrett, manager of the Olym
pia A. C., of Steelton, announced last
night that he had completed his en
tire bill for his show Thursday night.
In all there will be thirty rounds of
boxing, a ten-round feature bout,
and four six-round bouts. The fea
ture bout is of great interest to lo
cal sports, as Sammy Schiff, Harris
burg's leading boxer, will meet
Young Mahoney, the clever Balti
more lightweight, who has won a
great many friends in this city.
This wili be Schtff's first start this
year in a regular fight. Sammy has
always volunteered his services will
ingly for patriotic purposes, and he
has kept in great condition in that
way. The Baltimorean has improv
ed greatly during the past year. The
special bout of six rounds is be
tween the two best bantans ever
paired in this section. Kid Rich-
I mond, from .the same stable as Ma
lioney, and boxing partner to Kid
Williams, will meet Lancaster's
pride, Jackie Parkes, the stable mate
of Tim Droney.
Young Lehman, the local wrestler,
will make his initial appearance as
a fighter against Laurence King, the
former overseas soldier. "Red"
Singer, the pride of Dauphin, will
meet Chester Rowan, of Steelton,
; while two other Steelton boys, Ivory
' Kshelman and Gordi Carchadi, will
' open the show. •
Kid Williams, the Baltimore Tiger,
who proved several weeks ago, be
fore Barrett's club, that there is a
reason for the world's champion,
Pete Herman, to refuse him another
match, will come to Steelton with
Mahoney and Richmond, to act as
their advisers.
Volleyball Practice Starts
1 Tonight For Local Elks
Elks who have taken up volley
' ball will meet this week for a try

arranged on the second floor of tiie
I Elks' Club and arrangements will
jbe made to have dally practice. A
good coach will be secured as there
, ure a number of star players in Har
risburg lodge, and it is expected that
within the next two weeks the Elks'
team will be ready for business.
; Games will be arranged with Lan-
I caster and other Elk teams, with the
j local police, Zembo Patrol, and
I Businessmen's teams front the local
! "Y." All candidates ure requested
j to report to-night at 8 o'clock sharp
for first practice.
Middletown football team was
handed a raw deal from Belmont Jr.
team of Harrisburg. Middletown
! went to the expense of advertising
! the field in good condition, selling
tickets and had a big crowd on the
field and was ready to play. Then
word was received from Harrisburg
that they would not be down. We
don't think we had a square deal.
This was to be our first game at
home. We played two games away
from home—Mt. Joy and Highsplre
—and lost both,'but we'were count
ing on getting even. I understand
we are not the only ones they dis
appointed this way. Mr. Davies
should at least let the team who he
is going to play know in time, so
they could get another game.
We would like to hear from some
team who will not disappoint us for
next Saturday, as we have an open

of a theater here brought a boxing
bout between Eugene Brosseau,
former Canadian amateur welter

in the eighth round of a ten-round
match and probably saved Howard
from a knockout. The stage was left

He is a rather fast player, and
