Pennsylvania Fights Well in Annual Thanksgiving Day Game
Red and Blue Puts Up Best Game of Year Against Ancient Rivals
Before Crowd of 57,000 Spectators
C ORNELL defeated Pennsylvania by a score of 14 to 7 in the annual Thanksgiving Day game on Frank-
lin Field, in one of the hardest fought of the long series of girdiron engagements between these two
ancient rivals. Defeated three times this year, Pennsylvania arose to the occasion and put up a truly re-
markable defensive fight which at times seemed inspired. In last year's battle, it had seemed that the Red and
Blue had tapped the last reservoir of desperate defensive strength, but Thursday's struggle found Pennsylvania
