Final footnotes on that era.  The next fall(1967) my family & I (now a hs senior) did the prospective student visit to campus, and went to that year’s first football game, a supposed gimme against small time Ithaca.  Half time: Ithaca 20, Lehigh 0.  But the Engineers stormed back with 50 second half points for a 50-20 win as huge billows of black smoke roll out of the Steel’s 3rd street shops. It was the only win of the year!

Supposedly Fred saved his job in ’68 with a shocking upset of Lafayette.  Very lucky they kept him after 5 wins in his first four years.
