Penn State Revenges Last Year's
Tie Score—New Men Show Up
In one of the roughest games
ever played on New Beaver Field
Villanova was outclassed by Captain
Very's football machine. The
game was played on a soft field, yet
our men were able to show their
superiority over the Main Liners.
Mauthe opened the game by
kicking to Villanova,who returned
the ball ten yards. During this
quarter State lacked aggressiveness
and was held even by its opponents.
Just prior to the ending of the first
quarter, Miller, who had been sub
stituted for Hermann, brought the
three thousand spectators to their
feet by making a sensational twenty
five yard run. The period ended
with the ball on Villanova's 37 yard
line. State showed up better in
the second quarter but were again
held scoreless by their opponents
although the ball remained in Vil
lanova's territory practically all of
the ,ime. The second quarter end
ed with the ball in State's posses
sion and thirty-two yards from'Vil
lanova's goal line.
Evidently "Big Bill" and Captain
Very injected spirit into the
players between the halves as
they started off with a whirlwind
rush at the beginning of the third
quarter and kept the stride through
out the remainder of the game.
The pigskin was rushed through
titn--p i ataneties line 1:o/ big gains and
Barry, finding a hole through light
tackle, carried the ball over for
the first touchdown. Mauthe kick
ed the goal. Miller starred in this
period by tearing off a thirty yard
run in a broken field. Our team
now used its full strength and was
soon rewarded with another touch
down when King placed the ball
over the line after a spectacular run.
Tobin was substitute d for Barry and
the former in five consecutive line
plunges carried the ball 37 yards
for the third and final touchdown.
Mauthe ended the scoring by kick
ing goal.
Few penalties were imposed dur
ing the game which was character
ized throughout by rough playing.

1910 Star Making Splendid Repu
tation as Coach—A True Penn
State Man of Whom We May
Well be Proud.
With the class of 1440 there en
tered Penn State a fern of the best
athletes that have ev.:r worn the
Blue and White during an athletic
event. Among such men as Vor
his, Hermann, Hirshman and other
famous backs, there if one man—
Edward McCleary, whose ability as
an all around athlete is eclipsed by
McCleary entered here from Cali
fornia Normal. He wss captain of
both football and baseball teams 0,
that institution for two years, win
ning from such colleges as Wash
ington and Jefferson, St. Vincent
and West Virginia. As a freshman,
McCleary proved to be a star at
halfback on our team. It was his
trusty foot that kicked a remarkable
field goal in the Indian game, State
winning four to nott ing. Again
this same year in the game with the
University of Pittsburg, having only
a few minutes to play, McCleary
shattered the Pitt line by a series of
attacks and finally crossed the goal
with the only score of the game.
Because of Hirshman's injuries in
the season of 1907, "Bull" one was
called upon to do much of the
heavy work on the offense. Pow
erful and aggressive, he was a hu
man catapult in line breaking, in
which respect he was probably as
good as any other back in the
game. As a reward for consistent
work, McCleary was elected captain
of Penn State's football team for
1908. Having a brilliant future be
fore him in 1908, McCleary had the
misfortune to have his foot broken
early in the season. However, al
though he could not personally lead
his team against Pitt, when the
captain hobbled out along the side
lines in his crippled condition there
came into our team a mighty spirit
and Pitt was swept off her feet.
_ _i
The season of 190 P was of the
best that Penn State ihas ever ex
perienced in football. Throughout
the whole season McCleary was one
of the greatest of stars. He could
always be depended upon to gain
ground. His cool, shady, playing;
his frank open honesty and his
disposition have done much toward
raising the standard of our ath
Besides being a great football
player, McCleary has the distinc
tion of being only the second man
to captain two different athletic
teams of Penn State. McCleary
was captain of the football team in
1908 and baseball leader in 1910.
Last winter the appointment of
Edward McCleary as Graduate
Coach was significant of the fact
that at last our directors of athletics
appreciated the fact that his four
year's work here would qualify him
to develop Penn State varsity
teams. Since then not only has his
ability as a football coach been ad
mired by all who came in contact
with him, but his strong character
and personality have also attract
ed every Penn State men. Mc
-Cleary as baseball coach last spring
turned out a very fast team and his
work on our football prospccts for
this year has been superb.
Popular both among players and
students at large as well, he has
been one of the main factors in the
great success which has attended
oui team thus far during the season•
Interclass Wrestling
The interclass wrestling meet is to
take place on Nov. 10 in the Atm
ory, and this year the management
has decided to charge ten cents ad
mission. The meet will De held un
der intercollegiate inks, with seven
weights, a fall scoring three points,
and a decision two.
Both teams are training hard.
With three men of last years'
wrestlers on the mats. the Sopho
mores will have a strong team,
though Manager Rishcll deplores
the lac . of iufficient heavy men.
The final trials for the 1914 team
will be held on Nov. 6.
Many of the Freshman candidat
es are new at the game, but the
squad is working, and is being well
coa-hed, and Manager Gleason is
is confident of turning out a win
ning team. During the past week,
a number of new men have develop
ed. Among these the most promis
ing are Smith and France, 135
pounds; Bishop and Keller, 115
pounds. The freshmen appear
strongest in the light weights.
Sergeant Allen Assists Captain Fry.
As was brought out in the mili
tary inspector's . report in one of
our previous issues, a competent
militny man was necessary to assist
Captain Fry in taking charge of the
very large body of cadets, especial
ly in the field drills. Mr. Maurice
C. Allen, Ordinance Dept. U. S. A.,
although it has not been in line of
his duties, he having taken charge
of all clerical matter pertaining to
the military department, has this
year voluntarily offered to assist
the commandant in taking charge of
the drills.
Nobody could have interpreted
the inspector's report to have re
ferred to Mr. Allen. Nevertheless
we make this statement so as to
eliminate all possibility of such an
inference. Mr. Allen who has been
with us for some time, has been es
teemed by everyone, his duties have
been most excellently taken care of,
and now in addition to his former
obligations he has assumed the
position of assistant military field

Pennsylvania Showed Good Team
Work Against Brown—Failed to
Solve Brown's Forward Passes
Pennsylvania has played her first
big game and lost. This was due
to but one cause and that was the
inability of the Red and Blue team
to solve Brown's forward passes.
In every other respect, the Pennsyl
vania team was the equal of the fast
Brown aggregation. Brown is un
doubtedly very strong in the line
while their backfield is the equal
of any team's in the East. Penn's
defeat does not therefore mean that
they will prove easy prey for the
colleges on their schedule from now
on, for if Head Coach Smith can
evolve some adequate defernc
against forward passes, this Penn
sylvania eleven will be a very hard
one to defeat.
Though outweighed 11 lbs. pq r
man in the line, the Quaker for
wards mole than held their own so
that even such remarkable backs as
Sprackling, Crowther and Tenney
were repeatedly held for short gains
or thrown for losses. With the lire
showing such good form, and a
backfield of the calibre of Mercer,
Marshall, Harrington and Bair,
some better football may be ex
pected of them. Next Saturday's
game is against State and here
again they will meet a foe worthy
to meet the best in the field. Penn's
weakness so far has been in stop
, ping the forward pass but this de
feet v,-;11 be wc:l:cd cn all v. eck and
it will be dangerous for any of
Penn's opponents to make this play
their main reliance.
Jourdet, Penn's veteran end will
be in the game Saturday and his
presence will help materially
especially against State whose ends
have been noted for their efficiency
for the past four years. It will take
a very fine pair of ends to nullify
the play that can be expected from
Captain Very and his mate. All
the rest of the team with the excep
tion of Nolan are in good condition
so that barring accidents, Penn
should be considerably harder to
beat on Saturday next than they
were last Saturday. There is great
interest in the State game here be
cause of their defeat of Cornell and
an immense crowd is expected.
Motive Power Club
The first meeting this year of the
Motive Power Club will be held in
Room 20, Engineering Building,
