PENN STATE VOLUME 8 NUMBER 2 CRUSHED GENEVA Penn State Football Team Wins Opening Game by Score of 57-0 Varsity Displays Fast Form on New Beaver Field. With New Beaver Field in a slightly muddy condition Saturday afternoon Penn State began her football season of 1911 with Geneva College. On the openire play Geneva kicked off to Barrett and the ball was returned to the twenty five yard line. Hermann made seven yards around right end, but Geneva secured the ball on an at tempted onside kick by State on our fifty yard line. Engle intercepted Geneva's first forward pass at the center of the field. From here end runs by Berryman and Barrett gain ed forty-five yards, and Barrett crossed the line with our first score, just seve - minutes after the ball was put in play. On the punt out,after the touchdown, Hermann failed to heel the ball. When Geneva kicked ofi again, Captain Very ran the ball back twenty-five yards. Barrett and Berryman sprinted around the ends for twenty yards, where we lost the ball by a fumble. Geneva gained five yards on two attempts and then kicked to Barrett. In giv ing interference for Barrett,"Dutch" Hermann had the misfortune to tear the muscle of his hip. After gamely sending Very around the enc' for a beautiful thirty yard run, Hermann gave way to Miller. (..orerl the cetttmrl anal after a spectacular end run, evading,•by zig-zagging tactics, the whole Geneva team. Mauthe kicked the goal. State scored the third goal in the first quarter by fast work on the part of Barrett and Berry man, aided oy fine interference given by Mauthe and Very. Mauthe kicked a neat goal. The score or the first quarter ended seventeen to I nothing in favor of Penn State with the ball on Geneva's forty-eight yard line. Barrett raa sixty yards in the sec ond quarter after two plays, for a touchdown. Very recovered an on side kick and after "Shorty" Mil ler added e'ghteen yards, Engle was shoved over the line. Mauthe and Harlow made several brilliant tack les in this period. Clarke showed his ability to follow the ball by recover ing two fumbles made by Geneva. Geneva made a first down this period. The second quarter ended by a score of thirty-five to nothing. The third and fourth quarters were the product of brilliant inter ference on the part of the backs and ends. Barrett received Gene va's sixth kickoff and ran the length of the field for a touchdown' Mauthe kicked a goal from the field from the thirty-five yard line. 'Shorty" Miller also scored another touchdown by fast work around the end. During the last period Gene va made a determined stand, and, for a few minutes, played the team to a standstill. Penn State gained much ground by wide and close end runs by fu'l and quarter back, aided by good interference. One fact noticeable in the game was the comparative absence of fumbling considering the earliness of the sea son. The forward pass needs per fecting. While Geneva's line did not prove a test for our own line, however, at no time did men break through our line in time to block kicks or smash plays in the begin- ning. Captain Very, by his dash and leadership, showed the ability of an ideal captain. It would have taken a detective to discover that Mauthe had had his ankle broken last season, inasmuch as the same reliable end kicked two field goals out of three tries and six out of nine goals from touchdown. Summing up the result of the Ge neva game it can easily be seen that the Penn State football eleven for the season of 1911 will be much better than was anticipated at first. Every person is convinced that by the efficient staff of coaches, in cluding Head Coach McCleary and Advisory Coach Hollenback, the Varsity will be in such shape that on the 14th of October, Penn State will give Cornell a hard tussle for victory. Owing to the fact that King and Barry were unable to matriculate with the Registrar before Saturday's game, they could not be used in the game. However, since credits have been forwarded •since , then, these two men will undoubtable help make one of the fastest backfields that Penn State ever had. Line up of Geneva Game. Veryl(eapt) R. E.

Gettysburg on Saturday Gettysburg College will be played on New Beaver Field next Satur day. Since Gettysburg held Penn Lc) a 5-3 score last Saturday, the game of this wt ek will be one of the most important early season games played. A summary of football scores between Gettysburg and Penn State is as follows: Year Penn State Gettysburg 1900 44 1902 39 1905 18 1606 0 New Course in Highway Engi- neering The success that attended the Good Roads Train sent out last spring from the college under the direction of the School of Engi neering has led to the formation of a new course in Highway Engineer ing. This course differs from the Civil Engineering course beginning with the se and semester of the juni or year, and continuing through the senior year. Highway design, and tests of highway materials are tak en in place of railroad engineering For the tests of highway materials adequate apparatus is being in stalled, and the numerous new test ing machines are all of the most re cent and approved designs. Baseball Practice On Saturday afternoon fm on one to three o'clock there will he base ball practice on New 13eaver Field. Although the work will be mainly I for new candidates, Captain Eber-i mrumiThms6 - cvislits air — ismd - inemi — to present in uniform. This fall prat [ice is very important as it will en- I able the captain and coaches to try out all the new men, and thus make! the womlc of eliminating candidates! in February much easier. Owing to the very crowded con dition of the Armory at the first spring practices, it is very difficult to give every man a chance, and the best thing for new men to do theme force, is to get into the fall practice tom all that they are worth. 'Kew Equipment for School of Mines. Some of the important new equip ment placed in the School of Mines recently is as follows. A large air compressor, direct connected with motor, and mounted on car, such that the compressor could be used in mines, has been installed, and will furnish air for limning drills and other pneumatic machinery. A complete equipment of safety lamps, two types of lighting ma chines for safety lamps, and a safe ty. lamp cleaning machine have been received from the Ackroyd and Best company. A large Oil fire d Muffle Furnace, and an Oil filed Malting furnace have been set up in the furnace oom for the use of the department of Metallurgical Engineering. These were built by the Rockwell Furnace company and will be used fcr work in the preparation and heat treatment of iron and steel, and for othet metallurgical experiments. Track Trials On Saturday, October 14, a track meet will be held on the Beaver track, for all excepting "S" men. It is the desire of the track man ager that all men in college, whether of last year's squad, of the number already picked from 1915, or of men who have not run before, but desire to do so. should come out on Satuiday. PRICE FIVE CENTS In Other Colleges "University Missourian," an up to-date city newspaper is the daily production of the students and fac ulty of the college of Journalism, at the University of Missouri.

The students of Miami University have voted to adopt the honor sys tem by a very positive majority. The adoption was at issue for sev ei al months. Ground is being broken for the new horticultural building of the Oregon Agricultural College, which will contain elaborate facilities for horticultural work. The annual struggle for all-around athletic supremacy between the two English Universities, Oxford and Cambridge, resulted in twelve victor ies for Oxford and eleven for Cam bridge. The Yale-Harvard combination of track athletes was defeated by the Oxford-Cambridge team in Lon don last July. Each nation had won two meets of sin ilar character aid this was in the nature of a rub ber contest. No records were broken.

Pennsylvania is raising $lOO,OOO for a new Deutsches Haus for Ger man activities.

The outfit includes the pyrometers proper, and two recorders, one a Stinebart I.:- corder and the other a Uehling re corder. Push Ball Scrap Saturday It was deemed advisable by the Student Council to hold the push ball contest on the third Saturday after the opening of college instead of the second Saturday. This was done so that the freshmen may have more time in which to get acquaint ed one with the other and so that they may be able to recognize men of their own class when in the scrap. The contest will take place about 1:15 on Old Beaver Field.
