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
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.

New Course in Highway Engi-
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 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.
In Other Colleges

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.
