Football Squads

Football is only one week old
h e r e at State, b u t after a glimpse
of all eight squads in action, we
find t h a t n o one team is outstanding.
T h e r e is n o squad which outclasses
all other loop m e m b e r s as was
t h e case in past years.
Club, last year's champions, w a s t h e

were h a r d pressed in only a few
games to go undefeated for t h e
season. T h e same c a n b e said of
KDR in previous campaigns.
T h e i942 race, however, promises
to be as close a fight for t h e c h a m pionship as t h e recent St. L o u i s Brooklyn pennant chase in the
National League.
According to last w e e k s play
Potter Club a n d Dorm " A " ( T r o jans) appear as strong contenders
tor t h e I n t r a m u r a l Cup.
Club h a s a flock of good experienced
players a n d a r e tops defensively.
They have a well balanced squad,
b u t they seem deficient in s o m e thing just as important—and that
is spirit.
(Remember the World
S e r i e s ? ) . P e r h a p s the 6-6 tie with
K D R last week h a s aroused the
Potter lads from their lethargy.
Trojans Heavy
T h e Trojans have weight to their
distinct advantage a n d so far they
h a v e p u t it to good use. They h a v e
good r u n n i n g a n d blocking, a l though they a r e weak on the p a s sing. It will be quite a battle when
the Trojans meet Potter C l u b and
the w i n n e r of this contest will
have a lot to say about the c h a m pionship.
KDR, with their n e w shift, is
the d a r k horse of the league. Their
chief w o r r y is material as t h e r e
a r e n o capable substitutes to r e place the starting six. Kappa Beta
and S L S will be battling it out
for the other first division spot.
K B looks very weak on the offense
being able to connect with only
short passes, while missing pitifully
on r u n n i n g a n d long passes. S L S
has a fairly good attack but is
charged with some loose playing.
Both teams are only average on the
Dorm " B " , the Finks, a n d the
Ramblers a r e the three weak sisters of the league. All three squads
lack experienced players. However,
they are pushovers for no team
in the league as they are fighting
all the time and may cause upsets.
As a surprise to many was the
play of the Finks. Rated as h o p e lessly out-classed, they have put u p
good battles before bowing to d e feat in their two contests so far.
Incidently, the longest r u n of the
campaign was made by a Fink, A r t
Olivet, when he scampered the
length of the field to a touchdown
in the K B game.
Rule Changes
A few changes have been made
on the rules governing the I n t r a m u r a l League. A play is stopped
w h e n a n opposing player touches
the ball carrier simultaneously with
two hands any place on the back,
above the legs and below the
The other change is
t h a t in order to stop the ball c a r rier, the opponents m u s t touch him
in the designated space and not
push or block him out of bounds.
Penalty for breaking this last rule
is a first down for the offensive
team at the point of the infraction.

This week we would like to pay

Hatfield is calling out the frosh

For the current campaign, each
and every student will be approached by the solicitors. T h e Campus
Chest drive takes place only once a
year, consequently students are not
asked for contributions several times
during tin- year for various "causes."
Each one is expected to oiler at
least fifty cents. Said Sol G r e e n berg, "Although we hope to get 100',
of fifty-cent contributions, the d e creased enrollment and more vital
cause should prompt as many as possible lo give a little more."
Any Junior or Sophomore who
desires to act as solicitor should contact Greenberg.

From Present Seniors
Kita Mickey, '43, was elected P r e s ident of Pi G a m m a Mu, national S o cial Studies honorary fraternity, at
a recent meeting of the group. Lucy
Massimilian was elected Vice-President; Mae Whiting, Secretary. Betty
Bailey is the new treasurer; Harley
Dingman is program director. M e m bers of Pi G a m m a Mu are selected
each year, by the outgoing seniors,
from those m e m b e r s of the Social
Studies Department who have shown
great interest in their field, and who
are outstanding in scholarship as
well as in personality. Only seniors
may be m e m b e r s of the fraternity.
Rita Hickey, President, has a n nounced that, d u e to a change in the
national constitution allowing the
chapter to have a total of fifteen
members, it may be possible that
additional members will be chosen
from this year's Senior Class. Two
of the m e m b e r s of Pi Gamma Mu
chosen last Moving Up Day, Thomas
Feenoy, and George Kunz, have been
inducted into the armed services of
the United States.
Among its varied activities, this
Social Studies society plans to c o n tact sophomores who are interested
in majoring or minoring in Social
Studies. The Pi Gamma Mu m e m bers will act as advisors in helping
these sophomores select their p r o gram and related subjects. The Pi

end sometime, and college days are a very brief
chapter in our lives. We who are college students at a period that marks a changing era have
been brought sharply to this realization. Again
it is time that will tell whether or not it has been
brought to us with great enough clarity.
With the last few months, lime has written a

period, in which we are the pioneers. Time will
tell, but we are the ones who will guide the hand
that writes. And we cannot delay in assuming
the roles lor which we are cast.
We have the outline, we have the materials.
The present' is now, lor time does not stand still.
And in this present, the world is not the one
we knew yesterday. In this present, untold numbers are relinquishing hourly their inalienable
right lo live as men with other men.
Nothing we will give can be loo great, lor
others will give more. Bui nothing we will give

You may have heard that, d u e to schedule conflicts

Council. This just ain't so, for the "Blonde Bomber"
of the poly sci d e p a r t m e n t is, was, and will be very
much in evidence in the WAC.
This is good news, for any organization can profit
by the p r u d e n t l y aggressive clear thinking of such a
person, who, while closely co-operating in worthwhile
activities, will never sink to the stupor of a "yes man."
In the need for such individuals, War Activities C o u n cil is certainly no exception, . . .

By now it is common knowledge that those of the
long black robes will allow no change in the rivalry
set up whereby the filthy lucre can be a deciding factor in the a w a r d i n g of coveted points.
It is true that the editorial last week got the plan
as presented all balled up, but this was the identical
way it was understood by many. . . . Backers of the
plan laughed at this misinterpretation, but the laughter
was not catching, . . .
Enthusiasts in WAC claim that the correct plan is to
have teams from each rivalry class compete in the sale
of War Stamps, but their machinery for the set up of
this is highly complicated, in an impractical sort of a
way, and would still allow the class with the most
purchasing power to bring home the bacon.
This idea of commercialism, whether a theoretic
quibble or a practical actuality, is extremely r e p u g nant. . . .
Let the War S t a m p Table, sponsored by WAC, tak"
care of the sale of war stamps, for things have come to
a pretty pass if people have to bo goaded into buying
these interest bearing defenders of democracy by some
super-zealous class patriot interested in getting rivalry
points. . . .
WAC is doing an excellent job—let's get that straight
right now—but when they miss the boat, as was done
with this idea, then they open themselves for criticism,
for a majority of State students do not worship sacred
cows, nor do they believe thai "the king can do no
wrong. . . ."
Let those heading hell-bent for hysteria accuse us
of impeding the war effort if they so desire.

first similar celebration was held
in 1!)20 and was devoted lo a day
of competitive sporl. A basket
lunch, a campus sing, and dancing
followed. The lirst C a m p u s Queen
was chosen in 11)22 to preside over
the third annual C a m p u s Day,
her most appealing child, we went
into the Commons to cast our ballot.
Yes, the dye is cast—we have a l ready voted and we still don't know
who will be the C a m p u s Queen of
There are five nominees, and as
we looked from one to the other in
an effort to determine our choice, il
became more and more difficult. We
kept reversing ourselves in an h o n est effort to pick only one.
Some of us prefer brunettes. If
enough of us did, the vote would
have to be split between Betty
Barden and Dorothy Cox. The girl
with the brown hair, sometimes r e ferred to as a brownette, Emily
Blasiar, is a type in herself! The
fourth and fifth girls, Shirley Eastman and Mildred Mattice combine
that well-known quality of the fair
hair and the blue eyes.
Bui when Marion Dully, comely
winner of the title of Campus Queen
last year, places the jeweled crown
upon the head of the 1942 C a m p u s
Queen tomorrow evening, you can
be assured thai the winner will not
be just a pretty girl without personality, charm, and leadership. Beauty
queen is chosen she will be to a l most every extent the t r u e queen of
the campus.
Following the precedent of the
last two years, three of the nominees,
Betty Barden, Emily Blasiar, and
Mildred Mattice are on Myskania.
The other two candidates, Shirley
Eastman and Dorothy Cox have
been active in many extra class affairs. Vivacious Dorothy Cox has
been expending much vitality as one
of the college cheer leaders. SCA
has had the good fortune to secure
Shirley Eastman for work on n u merous of its committees.
The first C a m p u s Queen sat
upon the throne
in 1922, a l though the idea originated in 1921.
This year's coronation will mark the
twentieth time State will witness the
crowning of the new queen.
Supporters of each of the five
candidates refused to make predictions, although one chimed in, "If
the results of the last two years are
an indication of the winner, Mildred
Mattice will have the advantage."
In 1940 and in 1941, the J u n i o r Prom
Queens added to their victories by
winning the Campus Queen crown.

Dorm A Ties KB For Lead;

Potter Club Scores 7-6 Over SLS in Tight Battle,
KDR and SLS Removed from Undefeated Ranks
While the Finks W i n by Defeating the Ramblers
Pete Marcheiia
K B's Passing
The most important development
in the football league during the
p a s t ' w e e k has been the rise of the
K a p p a Beta team from just another
league m e m b e r to a contender for
the championship.
The reason for KB's fast climbing
u p w a r d s in the league race is their
deft passing attack. Using short flat
passes, in most cases, K B has had
amazing success by the aerial route.
With Joe Levin doing most of the
pitching and any of the other five
players receiving, these boys have
been able to combine accuracy with
deception to complete at least 70",',
of their flat passes. It will take more
than some carefully laidout plans to
stop their short passes. So far the
Finks, SLS, and KDR have failed.
The r u n n i n g form of Sol Stolbof
in this week's contests has s t r e n g t h ened the title hopes of KB, v/ho as
yet have not shown much of a
ground attack.
Rule Change
I n t r a m u r a l Council has found it
necessary to a m e n d one of the football rules. The new rule reads that
if a player of the defensive team
tacMes the ball carrier, the defensive
II ba t c n a l h e d ten yards
from the point of Infraction and the
offensive team will be awarded a
first clown.
As the rule stood before this week,
only a first down was awarded to
the offensive team. However, in a
n u m b e r of instances ball carriers
have been tackled after they had
ran the ball for a first, down. In
this way the offenders had been able
to escape penalty as the referee had
no alternative. It was a wise and
just move to make, even though the
season's schedule is about half c o m pleted.

The frosh tennis tournament is
progressing very slowly this year.
Individual contestants are not playing their matches on schedule. We
have been fortunate this fall to be
favored with playing weather. H o w ever, this may not continue.
What do you say, frosh?
about doing something about it?
Basketball has already found its
way into State College as frosh b a s keteers answered the call this week
for practice in preparation for the
coming season. Only a few have r e ported as yet. However, more are
expected next week when practice
sessions will be held every afternoon,
Friday excepted.
It is too early,
though, at this stage to make any
predictions as to possible hoopster
material contained In the class of '46.
Frosh Net Tourney
Nearing Completion
The Frosh tournament has a p p a r ently been aroused from its lethargy.
More matches were played last week
than in all the preceding weeks of
the tourney.
Bob Ferber, who defeated Marry
Lazer, 6-0, 6-1, to gain the second
round, trounced Jim Howarth on
Tuesday by a score of 6-2, 6-0. This
victory advances Ferber to the final
round. Howarth gained the second
round by virtue of a default from
Jim Harder.
In the other match,
Bob Merritt, after a slow start, won
over Jim Miners by a score of 3-6,
6-1, 8-6.
Mark Blunt and Dick Chilleni
must meet to determine who shall
play in the semi-finals. The winner
of the Mart Bortniek-Murph Paul
match will vie with Boh Merritt tu
fill ill the other semi-final bracket.
As yet, neither Borlniek or Paul

In the other game, a

and then proceeded to toss the g a m e
away when Caple blocked a kick.
The passing combination of Hippick
to Guarino clicked from five yards
out for the score.
Maintaining its pace of at least
two touchdowns per game, a b e a u t l fully passing KB team downed SLS
by 14-7, and KDR by 19-0. A 20y a r d pass by Joe Levin to A r t Flax
scored the first touchdown against
SLS in the first quarter, and a n o t h e r
pass, this thrown by L. Flax, set the
stage for a 15-yard romp to p a y - d i r t
by Stolbof in the second q u a r t e r .
Both extra points were made good
on passes from Levin to A. Flax.
In the third period SLS roared
back to within striking distance of a
tie or victory on the wings of an i n i„rce,.ted j.ass and run by Dave
Griffin from mid-field. However, the

Holding unbeaten KDR to only
one first down, and moving ahead on
sharp Stolbof passes, KB scored once
in the second period and twice in the
last quarter, the last touchdown
coming on a pass interception arid
run covering the length of the field
by Stolbof, to conquer KDR, 19-0.
Levin clicked with. A. Flax with a
five-yard bullet pass for the t o u c h down in the first quarter, and Leo
Flax ran over from the three after
two pass plays had failed for the
second score. Stolbof's interception
was the last play of the game.
Dorm Beats Dorm
Dorm "A" kept its slate clean and
its goal-line still uncrossed as it
mowed down Dorm " B " by 19-0.
Both toams took to the air early but
the first score came in the second
period as Tassoni flipped to C u m mings on the very first play of the
quarter. Half-way through the same
period Tassoni again connected, this
time with Smythe, for another sixpolnter. The third quarter was a
nightmare of interceptions, six of
the ten in the game coming then.
Play was concentrated around midHeld. The final period was a few
minutes old when Tassoni, behind
excollont blocking scored on a run
from mid-field. Dorm "A" was again
threatening at the final gun.
Bouncing back from its 6-6 tie
with KDR in its first game, Potter
Club rolled over Dorm "II," a twotime loser this week, by a 38-0 score.
Held the first quarter, EEP got up
steam in the second, scoring twice,

The men of the two classes will
open the program this afternoon at
4:30 on Page Field, w h e n they line
up their choice " b o n e - c r u s h e r s " for
a mauling game of pushball. Buck
Hippick, captain of the '45'ers, p r e dicted a clean and efficient sweep of
rivalry and said, "We'll start the
bandwagon rolling in pushball." O p posing his charges will be Marty
Bortnick and his "rambling amblers"
who have plenty in weight and
brawn, but lack in the " k n o w - h o w "
department. As a matter of policy,
a special section will be set aside for
visiting med s t u d e n t s and eager
first-aiders so that they may get into
action soon after the opening whistle.
The "Crimson Tide" will plan to
continue their feud at 3:30 when
