PENN STATE VOLUME 8 NUMBER 3 THE GE'ITYSBURG GAME 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 advantage. 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. Page 'l3, played left end. Page 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 The following are new instructors in the school of Natural Science:— F. W. Varrelman, of the University 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 physics; P. I. Pierson, of Western Reserve, instructor in Physics. The following instructors of last year have been replaced by those men tioned above:—F. C. Miller, W. P. 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. :( 41 - WR'r6l ••\••;,, • • tsr ; %1 1 ,k> .'"4• ' 4'; STATE COLLEGE, PA., OCTOBER 12, 1911 Track Trials On Saturday, Oct. 14, track trials will be held for all old and new men, not including "S" men. 1:30 has been set for the hour and the meet will start prcmptly on time, and be over in plenty of time to hear the returns of the Cornell game. Diehl Dulbehn Black The object of the - meet is to find out just what men are to be carried on the squad which is now very large. State has never in the past few years had such encouraging material as has been seen here this fall and there is no reason why our track team should not uphold the high standard of our other athletic teams. Every man in college is encour aged to come out on Saturday and try, whether he has been out before or not. The squad is working hard every day and on Saturday some very hotly conte,ted races may be expected. The hearty support of the student body is asked and it would oe of great encouragement to the contest ants to see a large crowd in attend ance at the meet.—" Remember the hour. 1.30 sharp." 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. STATE LEG E, OLLEGIA A NEW ENGINEERING BUILDING To be Used for Housing Shop Ap- paratus 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 group. 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 work. 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 school. 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.
