Villanova-Bucknell Game to Be Played for First Time at Villanova and to Provide
, Main Attraction for Alumni Visitors—Ladies to Be Guests
=.0f College on Inspection Tour,
A double-header on October 14 at the
old school! Alumni Day. and the Villa-
nova-Bucknell fray! Gentlemen, here is
a splendid opportunity to see some of
those old classmates once again, and. in
addition, a chance to see the greatest
ball game on the schedule, a rip-snorting
fight, played this year for the first time
in the history of both schools, right here
on the home Jot. bh ee
“Reserved for Alumni”
And the boys will see that Bucknell
battle from an ALUMNI section of the
stands, with seats between the forty-five
and fifty-yard lines, where it has to be
“first come, first served.” The alumni
can have the park this day, but if they
do not want to stand, and: want seats
next to Joe Blutz or John’ Bananas,
they’ll have to make RESERVATIONS.
We should have about a thousand alumni
here at this game, and there are only
twelve thousand seats in the place. That
the game is a sell-out goes without
Judging from the number of Scran-
ton men who have signified intention of
being in on the celebration, it would seem
that the boys from up Coal-Cracker way
have determined to make the 14th
“Scranton Day” at Alma Mater. “Chuck”
Cummings and McCann, McHugh, Me-
Ginty, and Conaboy, Joe Connell, the
O’Donnells, both senior and junior, all
will be here. And Stanley Coar and Joe
Rafter. We haven’t reached them, but
let’s see them stay away! :
A bang-up game witnessed from seats
among a lot of fine fellows is the platter
served up to the alumni on‘the 14th.
Harry Stuhldreher’s squad this year is
one of the best ever, with three of the
sweetest little complete - backfields that
the old school has seen in a long time.
Bison skin should be found shredded all
over the lot when that final whistle
-And after the game—a meeting. Not
one of those dead, tiresome affairs (they
never are at Villanova), but the spirited,
fast-moving annual meeting of the
Alumni Association. Election of officers
will be in order, with not too much op-
portunity for amateur talent in oratory.
And final adoption of a Constitution
which the Board of Governors has wran-
gled over in a very good-natured way
for a year, and a brief, a very brief, re-
_ port by the Secretary.’

And don’t leave the ladies at home.
That good wife ‘deserves a. treat; that
girl-friend wants to see the Blue and
White. Introduce them around at the
game.: Immediately after, the college
will take them in small groups for a tour
of your old school, up into the buildings,
around and through them, over the
campus; turning them back to you at the
stroke of six, all in good order, ready
for a big evening ahead.

evening with just two—that’s possible,
But Folks, RESERVATIONS. Make
them NOW... That. stadium is going to
be a crowded place on the 14th, -and
alumni can have the best seats in the
house—for the reserving.
