years ago when West Virginia
eyan came to Washington and
the Presidents to a 13 to (J score,
is the boast of the Buckhannon
odlsts that Bock,.the husky back
was recruited form Bellaire, 0.,
school, would bo the main cog
a visitors' attack. Heck was re>d
as a powerful offensive back
had not been slopped all year,
tho Red and Black line proved
tuch for the Ohio lad, who while
syed a good game, failed to '11bish
himself at carrying the L/ill
st the Presidents. A few weeks
this same Beck tore the West
ala University lino to shreds.
;k is again playing a backfield)
on for Wesley Jul and is a much
r, heavier and more experienced)
than the one who was here two
is ago. They assert at Buckin
that he is playing the best;
ill of his career ami is the key-1
of the Methodist.--" secondaryI

nd Black supporters that he was I
m two years agfo and he is comire
at the end of the week with j
irmlnation to show the 1're.ii-,
a lot of football.
k Is only one of a half dozen'
-backs whom Coach Drum is
IE this year. The team has j
great power all year in advanc-1
hull orrntnqf uiich strons; teams
las Georgetown, the Navy and others,!
'so that the Red jmd IJIack forwards,
can look for a battoring that will
Completely test their mettle on Satur-,
.'flay. The running attack ol \\ es-1
'leyan Is commensurate with its for-j
P#ss offensive, no that the West
^Virginians look like a '.veil balanced
team when it has the ball. Defen-]
jslvely the team is regarded as one 'if
Ithe best the IJuckhannon institution
'aver turned out, and Wesleyan, like
?VV & J., has always had a reputation
:for offering stiff resistance to every
'team it has met. .
< The demand Tor reserved seats
'when the advance wile of
'opened here last evening indicate
that a large attendance at the game;
lis certain. The contest is the bigg^t
nf tho.hnme vear as well as the con
eluding one, and is counted upon Inj
bring out the local enthusiast* in
. large numbers, as it will, be th final '
glimpse they ahvo. of the rreiiidents
this year, unless they so to Morgan-;
_town the following Thursday. I?my,e|
I numbers of Washington & Jefferson
-alumni failed tQ see the Pitt pa inn on
I account of a lack of seating space, J
I .and many of these from out of town)
point> particularly in the Wheeling!
' district, have sent in requests for res-!
I ervations to the Woslfyan samp.!
I which they figure -will rank almost!
If next to that with Tilt in importation
I on the Presidents' schedule. j
k ' West Virginia Wfsleyan is also;
I'- sending a host of supporters here.1
I Manager Shuniaker wrote here todi-y
. that the team would bo accompanied |
\ by a throng of undergraduates ?in<i
; not a few residents of Kuckhannon.
while many alumni throughout Whs' '
Virginia, especially In the vicinity of
| Wheeling, are coming. The stay-athomes
have arranged to get a detailj"
ed account of the game over a special |
i wier at College Field, interest in this
game at the Mountain .State institu;
tion boing greater than that in any
ij pther contest on the 191!) schedule.
I1 This atfernoon will see the final
| practice of any consequence before
Saturday's game. It is likely to be a
V stiff drill, as Morrow has not worked
the men very hard thus far this week.
?' He returned to fundamentals earlier!
in the week, apparently believing that1
| the men were not tackling well nor !
5; following the ball with t he neeessa ry j
I precision. The Uiclcera have all been j
jfc given a working over this week also. |
and a decided improvement in tills |
jj department is looked for.
The coaches are somewhat anxious J
over the Wesleyan game, as they real-!
Ize the visitors will be fresh and!
Btrong from a rest of two weeks,
while the Presidents will be forced to '
eoncerve their energy as much asj'
possible for the next hard contest five,
days later with West Virginia Univer-1
sity at Morgantown ,a game that now
looms as one of the most important of
the year in the country.
