Football Team Wins by Score of
31-0 Against Gettysburg—Captain
Very, Harlow, Miller, Clarke and
Berryman Star—Mauthe Kicks
Field Goal.
In last Saturday's game Penn
State defeated the strong Gettys
burg eleven by the overwhelming
score of 31 to 0.. The whole State
team played much better football
than in the Geneva game, and dis
played to 3,000 loyal supporters al
most midseason form. The first
touchdown was made in just three
minutes of play. Barrett kicked
off. Captain Very, by his speed,
secured the ball on Gettysburg's 47
yard line and ran for 31 yards.
Mauthe gained 5 yards through
center, 'Berryman added 3 yards
more by a line plunge and Mauthe
scored the first touchdown.
"Shorty" Miller neatly handled the
kick out, after which Mauthe
kicked goal.
The fact that in three minutes
Penn State had scored one point
more than the University of Penn
sylvania did in the whole game on
the previous Saturday, seemed to
paralyze. the offense of the visitors.
After Berryman had run the second
kickoff of Gettysburg back 30
yards, anc' Very had recovered an
onside kick of Barrett's, and after
failures to make a first down on two
attempts, State kicked. On the
next play Harlow got through the
line and threw Leathers for a loss
of four yards. Mauthe tried for a
field goal irom the thirty-five yard
line but failed; Lawyer who caught
the ball was thror n by a hard tack
le of Page. The second touchdown
was made by end runs by Miller,
and Berryman of respectively 12
and 15 yards, Berryman making the
Throughout the game Gettysburg
did not show the form that our
coaches had anticipated. Although
the defense was pretty good in the
second quarter, State losing the
ball on downs on Gettysburg's third
yard line, the offense was powerless
before our line. Harlow, Bebout,
Clarke, and Hansen, each secured a
blocked kick and Getty sburg was
unable to use the forward pass to
The attack of the Blue and White
eleven varied somewhat from the
Geneva Game. In the previous
game long and close end runs by
Barrett and Miller were the best
ground gainers, while the forward
pass was used to good advantage in
the latter game. In the second
period Very got away with a pass
from Mauthe for twenty-five yards
and a touchdown, and again Weston
and Miller made gains on forward
passes thrown by Barrett.
Lesh and McVean were substi
tuted as guards in place of Bebout
and Hansen. Both new men in the
game stopped plays that were
started through the line• Miller
who took Beidelman's place at left
half for Gettsburg made some
brilliant tackles and ran back punts
in fine style. The big * surmise of
the game was the manner in which.

played on both freshman and
sophomore teams in the inter-class
games, but did not come out for
Varsity until three days before the
Gettysburg game. In the last quar
ter Mauthe, who had retired in
favor of Weston on account of a
slight injury, returned to the game
and kicked a splendid goal from
placement on State's 38 yard line.

Foresters' Feed
The opening meeting of the For
estry Society was held on Tuesday
evening in the woodlot at the rear
of the Forestry Building. Seated
around a blazing campfire, the for
esters were in their element, and the
usual good fellowship prevailed.
The meeting was in the nature of a
welcome and a reception to the new
men in the course, and speeches
with that end in view were made by
Dr. Baker, Prof. Clark, Mr. Berry,
and Mr. Chaffee.
After several hours spent in re
counting experiences of the wilds of
the Rockies, the' cypiess swamps
of the , South, the rugged hills of
New England, and the dense forests
of the Sierras, all the time consum
ing liberal quantities of cider and
"hot dogs." the men around the
camp fire concluded the evening's
enjoyment with the singing of the
Biltmore Forestry Song.
Penn State Eager to Beat Cornell
Next Saturday comes what is
considered as one of the most im
portant games of Penn State's foot
ball schedule. Cornell will be met
at Ithaca. Not only have Cornell
and Penn State come into very close
athletic relations during the last few
years, but their meetings on both
girdiron and diamond have been so
close and hard fought that every
struggle between the two is closely
watched throughout college circles.
Our team is fortunate in having such
a star as Earl Hewitt, 'O3, quarter
back and captain of his team to re
turn to help whip the eleven into
shape for the coming big games.
Alec Gray, last year's captain, was
also in town for a few days.
Changes in Faculty

of Wisconsin, instructor in zoology;
R. D. Spencer, State, 1911, Instruct
or in Zoology; T. S. Sligh, of the
Univ . ersity of Louisiana, teaching
fellow in Physics, 0. F. Smith,
Penn State, 1911, instructor in

Davey, L. J. Lasalle, M. W. Eddy,
J. L. Appleton, 0. M. Bishop.
Class Wrestling
The date of the sophomore-fresh
man wrestling meet remains to be
selected. The student sentiment
favors holding this meet under In
tercollegiate rules, which call for
seven weights and allow three
points for a fall and two points for
a decision. The team managers,
however, have not definitely de
cided upon this point.

will be held for all old and new
men, not including "S" men. 1:30

The object of the - meet is to find
out just what men are to be carried

large. State has never in the past
few years had such encouraging
material as has been seen here this

track team should not uphold the
high standard of our other athletic

Inter-Department Tennis
Arrangements are being made for
a tennis tournament between players
of the various departments in the
college. Any one who wishes to
try for the prizes should hand in
his entry at the Co-op before Fri
day, October 13. A valuable gold
medal will be given to the winner of
the tournament and a silver medal
of attractive design ::r1 1 - .-... present
ed to the runner-up. The large
number of men who have hereto
fore shown great s .ill at this form
of sport gives promise of making the
last tournament of the year a lively
struggle for first honors.
Dr. Robt. N. Wilson Here
Dr. Robt. N. Wilson, advisory
physician at the University of
Pennsylvania, will speak to the
freshmen at 10 o'clock in the Old
Chapel. At 11:00 a. m. he will
hold the regular preaching services
and at 1:30 p. m. will talk to the
members of the Beaver Club.
Group and individual conferences
are to be ,rranged later.
Every freshman, regardless of his
religious belief, should avail himself
of this opportunity to hear Dr. Wil
son who 'will speak on essential
problems which every college man
should know about.
Philadelphia Trip
Manager Orr has secured very
favorable rates for a special train to
carry students to the Penn games
provided there are 150 men taking
the trip. Last year the train left Le
mont in the early afternoon on Fri
day, arriving in the city at 7 p. m.;
and made the return trip on Sun
day night. The arrangement was
very convenient, and was successful
in every way. If 300 men took the
trip last year, there seems to be no
valid reason against the presence of
500 Penn State men at the game
this year. If every man realized
the value to the team of strong
cheering from the grandstancl, he
would make a great el cit tD take
the trip. Let our slogan be "Five
Hundred to Penn !"
Pennsylvania Day
The date for Pennsylvania Day
has been definitely set for Friday,
November 17. Govenor Tener will
be honer guest. Other prominent
speakers will take part in the
exercises of the day.
To be Used for Housing Shop Ap-
The Exeucutive Committee of the
Board of Trustees have authorized
the erection of a new unit to the
Engineering Building. This build
ing will probably be about a hun
dred fret in length and sixty feet in
width. It is proposed to erect it
directly in front of the Thermal
Laboratories and to the south of the
Electrical Extension. The build
ing will be of a type which can be
extended readily and duplicated, and
will be so placed and so designed
that it will work into a proper
general scheme for the permanent
enlargement of the Engineering
Within this new building will be
placed a large part of the apparatus
for the study of iron and steel; the
high tension apparatus of the elec
trical laboratory; probably the
cement laboratories; and other parts
of the engineering equipment which
are now seriously handicapped for
lack of space. The experimental
mill will then be erected in the
south end of the Electrical Ex
tension, such parts of the electrical
equipment as are thereby displaced
being put in the new building.
This building will add grey to
the efficiency of the enginet.ring
The New Horticultne Building
The excavation work on the site
of the new Horticultural Building,
for the erection of which the Board
of Trustees has so far appropriated
$40,000, has been under way for the
past two weeks. The building which
will be located in the wood lot at
the west end of the Agricultural
Building will be of the most modern
structure and equipment.
The plans call for a two story
fire proof building, 60 feet wide and
120 feet long. For the present,
only the basement will be- completed.
Until more money can be secured,
a temporary roof will cover this
portion. The building materials to
be used on the exterior will har
monize with those of the Agricul
tural Building and the style of
architecture of the two will be
practically the same. In addition
to recitation rooms and offices, suf
ficient space . will be given mer for
laboratory purposes. When com
pleted, the structure will meet the
growing needs of the department
and at the same time relieve the
congested condition of the main
agricultural building.
German Examinations.
German examinations for credit
in German 1,2, and 3, to be applied
to the college course, will be held
Saturday, Oct. 14, at 2 o'clock in
rooms 339 and 340 Main.
Only those students are eligible
who have not used German 1,2, or
3 for entra•ice, and who have
certificates covering at least two
years' work in some secondary
The section of senior Mechanical
Engineering students visited the
hops of the Pennsylvania Railroad
at Altoona on October 6 and 7.
The trip was taken in order that the
men might make tests on one of the
new large passenger locomotives
that the company has recently in
stalled. In doing this work they
made use of the great $200,000,000
testiiig plant of the Pennsylvania
Railriad, the finest plant of its kind
in the\ world.
