COMMITTEE REPORT In order to define clearly the hitherto unwritten and often mis understood customs and precedents of State College, a committee com posed of five men from each of the two upper classes, met at the Track House "on Friday evening, Oct. 14th, and drew up the following rules: This committee was in structed merely to put down in writing and in good form the cus toms of the college, so that the fol lowing rules must not be consider ed as final, but purely as recom mendations for the consideration of the two upper classes. We suggest that the Senior and Junior classes hold meetings as soon as possible and act on these recommendations. WRESTLING MATCH, (1.) The Sophomore-Freshman wrestling match shall be held at eight o’clock on the evening of the second Wednesday after the open ing of the Fall term, weather per mitting.

The match shall be divided into three classes, lightweight, mid dleweight, 'and heavyweight. The contestant winning two falls out of three, shall be the victor in his class, and the side winning two classes of the three, shall be de clared the winner of the match. (3.) The bouts shall be decided as follows: Ist, lightweight; 2nd, middleweight, 3rd, heavyweight, and shall proceed in this order until one side shall have won a majority of the bouts in each class. (4.)

CIDER RUSH. First.

What are you going to do to make November 12th a day of victory for the Blue and White ? State Collegians, your rivals are busy. The Dickinsonian last week sounded their cry, ‘ ‘Everybody for Williamsport.” Are you going to keep on sleeping? You have a team that can win the game but that does not let you off. Your presence is required each afternoon on the side-lines of Beaver Field. The best team in years is getting the poorest support at practice that any team within the writer’s four year’s experience has received. It is a lamentable fact that battalion drill is responsible for the absence of the under-classmen. But where are the upper classmen? The men who were appointed to lead the cheering have had little to do. Not a single yell has been handed in and only two songs. It will be almost too late to compose these on the morning of the game. It is doubtful if they could be print ed in time to be taken out to the field. See that they are written at least one day before the great day. Get a committee appointed at once to make arrangements with the authorities and for transporta tion. There will be several class banquets on Friday night, Nov. nth. These will take a large crowd down but the bulk of the students will go on Saturday. It is taken for granted that all will go. Remember! weeks! Only three CHANGE OF DATE. Owing to unforseen circum stances it has been found necessary to change the date of the Jacob A. Riis lecture from Friday, Nov. 4th, to Thursday, Nov. 3rd. It is hop ed that this will be found even a better date than the one first adver tised. The lecture will certainly be a treat, and everyone should avail himself of the opportunity to hear the man who has done so much for the poor of Greater New York.
