ability as a player by his consistuf. back field work in 1909; and "Dad" Engle, 'l3, tackle, the sturdy var sity half, will prove a' wonderful 'nucleus from which to build a for midable line. As substitutes on last season's team, for the guard po sitions,there are Lesh, 'l2, Hansen, 'l3; Bebout, 'l4; McVean, 'l4 and Vogel, 'l4. From this material the coaches should find no diffi culty in developing a strong pair of guards. Clarke, 'l4, at center posi ---.-L=.•v'F:' play-ing•:la good -game era& bids fair, after a little more experi ence, to equal the work of "Burly" Watson. The end men who will compete with Very and Mauthe for the positions seem likely to be chosen from among Rutstein, 'l5, Hirshman, 'l5; Weston, 'l3 and Shupe, 'l4. Two valuable men have already been lost from the , team, temporarily, • in Goedecke, 'l2, a strong conte•ider for the po sition in 1910, and Wilson, 'l3, a fast end. The coaches feel reason ably certain that both men will be able to report later in the season for active work. In the back field the team is greatly strengthened by the return to college of "Dutch" Hermann 'l2, the quarterback who made a name for hiinself on New Beaver field among such stars as McCleary 'lO, Vorhis 'lO and Hirshman 'lO. "Fritz" Barrett, fullback, by his speed and brilliant open field work will be a tower of strength in the offense, while the midget quarter back "Shorty" Miller 'l4, can be relied on for some phenomenal dashes aided by his wonderful ability to bounce away • from tacklers. "Pop" Golden and the coaches have lined up a large number of new men, several of whom will strengthen both the line and the back field. Barry 'l4, a pitcher and back at Villanova and last year a star on University of Pennsyl vania's freshman will increase the Speed of the backfield greatly, should he make the team. King 'l4, a Mercersburg man and last year at Penn too, will certainly make good for the reason, that at Penn, critics thought him as good as several varsity backs of the 1910 Marks - 'l5 from Grove City is a promising candidate for the line. Lamb, -who also came from Grove city this year, is the -giant of Beaver:. field. 'Six feet and Penn State Delegation at the Pocono Pines Y. M. C. A. Conference, 1911 bur irc'aes in height, he ' built in proportion and, should his injured knee get better, will aid in the amount of beef. The backs, Tobin 'l5, Johnson 'l4, Quirk 14, Flem ing 'l4, Allison 'l2, Welty 'l5 and Berryman 'l5 have all shown by hard work and skill in taking out ends in interference that they are very valuable men. Although we lnst such men as Captain Gray, Piollet, Watson, Johnson, Keller and Riddle by graduation last year, Weaver, a var sity tackle for four years, and Bar ron who left college this fall, the followers of Penn State are very fortunate in havii g such competent coaches to build up the gaps which are left by the absence of these men. Besides Head Coach Mc- Cleary and Advisory Coach Hol lenback, there are also with the -squad "Henny" Weaver 'l2, who was a remarkable tackle on four consecutive teams; "Mother" Du m, State's only All-American center; and "Mal" Mcllveen, a famous half back. Even though it will require some work to develop a team, with such men to aid, Penn State will have a team of which we may indeed be proud. Previous to the opening of col lege the attention of the squad was directed toward tackling the dum my, falling on the ball and other rudiments of the game. However now that scrimmage has started the second and third teams are almost ; daily sent against the varsity. Barrett and Mauthe appear to do the best punting, sending their punts on an average of 40 to 45 yards. Foster 'l4, is a consistent drop kicker. Manager F. W. Orr, is to be highly commended in connection, especially, with the football sched ule. . At last the student body are loud in praise over the fact that they will see so many big games on New Beaver field. The com plete schedule for the season of 1911 is as follows: Sept. 30, Geneva College, at State College. Oct. 7, Gettysburg College, at State College. Oct. 14, Cornell University, at Ithaca, N. Y. Oct. 21, Villanova College, 'at State College. Oct. 28, University of Pennsyl vania, at Philadelphia. Nov. 4, St. Bonaventure College, at State College. Nov. 11, Colgate University, at State College. Nov. 18, FY. S. Na. al Academy, at Annapolis. Nov. 25, practice game, Varsity vs. Reserves, at State College. Nov. 30, University of Pittsburg, at Pittsburg. Last Friday evening the Young Men's Christian Association tender ed a reception in McAllister, to the old and new students of the col lege. It seemed as though every student was there for the hall was well filled. Mr. Evans, of 1912, opened the evening by introducing President Sparks as the first speak er. In his address the President extended an especial welcome to the of w students, and commended to all, both old and new men, to be come good citizens by developing along mental, physical, and spiritual lines, with the tuition of tk e re spective departments of the college. Dr. Sparks emphasized the fact that spiritual development, invigor ated by the Y. M. C. A. was rapidly increasing instead of declinivg. Following the opening address, Mr. Alex. Gray, 3rd, favored the audience with a vocal solo. General Beaver, introducing him self as a perpetual member of the freshman class, accorded with President Sparks, in extending a sincere welcome to the class of 1915. He explai4d the general attitude that a freshman should as sume toward the college as a whole, and at the same time he pleaded with the new men to come in close touch with one_ another, and ro de velop honorable college and class spirit. After selections rendered by the Glee Club and the Orchestra, Mr. Very, captain of the football team, hastily summed up the college athletic a tivitics' , of the past year, and spoke. of Ole, outlook , for the coming year. , I Coarh Holltnbacic, the next speaker, in discusstbg • . football, urged the freshmen WI come out for the squad and he also proved how intimate the ceznectyn of the Y. M. C. A. with athletics was, by naming some 'of! the ' Most prominent State athletes who had been mem bers of this association. After singing the "Alma Mater" and the "Blue and White," those assembled partook of the refresh ments, which were served at beauti fully decorated tables placed around the sides of the hall. These were presided over by the families of the faculty, and also by v-rious ladies of the town _ _ __ k . As the entire reception was Iso extremely successful, all of those who lent their assistance to make it so, should be complimented. We may, safely assert, that every stu dent present appreciated the kind hospitality of the Y. M. C. A. We urge every new man to ally himself, at his earliest opportunity, with the largest organization of its kind in the world, so that he may receive some of the good influence which it gives forth. WE WONDER If it would not be a wise plan for all of us to save money now so that everybody could see at least one of the games away from home. If we are not glad that re-exami nations will be less expensive for some of us. Why we had to wait so long to see the posters. Why there are so many injured members of the freshman class. If the "Hep's" Army enjoys the late hours. Why we cannot give the teams more room on the football field. If the enrollment will rise from 2000 to 3000 as quickly as it has done from 1000 to 2000.

Civil Feed As is the custom, the odd year Junior Civils entertained the odd year Freshmen Civils at a cider feed near the Stone Quary on Sat urday evening. Mr. Ray O'Don nell, 1907, was the first speaker t f the evening. Mr. O'Donnell spoke concerning the origin of the custo:n and, to his mind, the benefit to the Freshmen which an evening spent in good fellowship will do. "Stew" Stewart acted as chief Cider Passer and called for sentiments from "Dex" Very, A. F. Fischer and other prominent Junior Civils. One pleasing feature of the evening was the expression of the manner in which the new men seemed to take hold of the customs and ideas of Penn State. As a token of success on the part of the Civils,there are at least one hundred and fifty men who became acquainted with each other in such a way that new acquaintances will not be soon for gotten.
