The greatest social event of the season was the
reception of the Class of ’9l, on the even
ing of November 281 h in the College armory.
This building so well adapted to such an occa
sion is worthy of particular notice to visitors.
Blue and white were the principal colors of dec
oration, and were artistically arranged. Another
very appropriate feature of the decoration was the
arrangement of military equipment; the floral
display was' also very noticeable. At eight
o’clock the reception rooms were filled with
guests principally from Bellefonte, Tyrone, Hunt
ingdon, Philipsburg and Mifflintown.
The Misses Stevenson accompanied by their
brother W. E. Stevenson, formerly of the Class of
’9O, were among the number. Prof. Bohn was also
Music was rendered by the Stopper and Fiske
orchestra, and refreshments in excellent style
were served by Achenbach of Bellefonte.
The occasion demanded special trains from the
neighboring towns, which brought many of the
visitors. The committee were Messrs. Hamilton,
Suloff, Clarke, Yocum and McKee, and the pa
tronesses Mrs. G. W. Atherton, Mrs. J. Y. Mc-
Kee, Mrs. Josiah Jackson, Mrs. L, E. Reber,
Mrs. Silas A Wolf, Mrs. G. G. Pond, Mrs. J. H.
Orvis, Mrs. D. H. Hastings.
This occasion was a great success and we look
forward to the next which will probably be held
on or about Washington’s Birthday.
After the night of the Senior Hop,
While most whore sleoplng with covers on top,
Many a Soph thinking not of Ills sin,
Walked happily away from the bulletin ;
And his friends all day were curious to know
The reason why his face wus aglow.
Tho Soph such nows was unable to keep,
While his heart within for joy did leap:
■‘The bulletin sgys, and sure 'tls right,
I was appointed Corporal last night
“Now chevrons I must quickly buy
Before the price becomes too high."
Straightway to a Junior tho Sophomore went;
JIo got the oheyrops but It took every cent.
THE FREE LANCE.
An omission of our last issue was mention of
the Sophomore vs. Freshman foot-ball game.
This contest was by far the most interesting as
yet played from the list of class games. From
the start, there was as much excitement as could
be expected on such an occasion. The first score
made was by ’94. They gaining six points the
score was 6-0 until the latter part of second half,
when by some very hard playing on part of Soph’s
they were enabled to make 6 points.
But considering both teams and the practice
done by them, the Soph's really lost the game by
their lack of practice. The final score stood 10
to 6 in favor of ’94.
The only match game of foot ball played with
a visiting team on our own ground this season
took place Saturday, Nov. 15th, between an eleven
from Altoona and our College eleven.
The day was a good one for playing foot ball
and the ground in excellent condition. Quite a
good sized audience witnessed the game. A
special trqin was run from Bellefonte to the Col
Now Schaffer tho tailor, as you all well know,
Without the money will never sew.
Therefore, John Ilennon, ’tls plain to see,
Was compelled Ills own tailor to bo.
Tho faoes of Xmas, Glrvln and Dale
Presented an appearance, oh,—so pale 1
They thought it a very unkind trick
To appoint as Corporal tho "Huntingdon Dick
But tho worst of It was they stood no show
Of competing at all with favored J OO.
Then “Ghost," oalled by "Gustus’ ’ a oranlc,
Declared the appolntmonts L all vory rank;
Even the lnnooont Freshman class
Upon tho Corporals tliolr Judgment did pass ;
Ltkewlso tho Sonlor, so goes the tale,
Thought it all wrong to slight Freddy Dale.
Tho “Mighty Man” this time dcool'ved,
So much tho more Ills mind was grloved
To think, that, on “oillolal papor"
His name was forgod to play a caper.
Now whoever Is this rascal wise
He'll do well to keep In safe dlsguiso.
