hard fought game from the Keyser
Preparatory team this afternoon by a
7 to 0 score. West Virginia scored In
the second quarter when Bloyd caught
a forward pass from Carpenter and*
carried the ball over the goal line

scrubs but the latter's line played
brilliant ball. A forward pass and a
penalty gave Keyser the hall once on

CAMBRIDGE, Mans., Oct. 21.?Har
vard piled up forty-seven points
against Massachusetts Agricultural
College today and easily kept the vis
itors from scoring. Notwithstanding
the big total tally Harvard's offense
proved very ragged. Casey again gave
a brilliant exhibition of open field
running, but his long gains were due
chiefly to his speed and use of the
straight arm, as he received little help
from his interference. He was closely
pressed for honors by Murray.
Harvard used straight football for
the most part. Three forward passes
were thrown and only one of theso
.succeeded. Fumbles prevented the
score from being larger. The lineup j

which was one of the prettiest and
