St. Bonaventure Eleven Defeated
by a 46-0 Score. An Entire New
Team Scores 17 Points in Second
In a rather onesided game last
Saturday Captain Very and his re
markable football machine added
another victory by defeating St.
Bonaventure 46-0. The speed and
spirit that was shown by our men
clearly displayed that they had
came out of the magnificent victory
over Penn the week before in
splendid condition. From the be
ginning of the game the play of the
Blue and White was far superior to
that of their opponents in every de
partment. The line could not stop
our backs and their ends were skirt
ed almost at will for long gains,
while, when St. Bonaventure had
the ball, their offense was weak, the
runner usually being thrown for a
loss or no gain. The most specta
cular play of the game came
in the second period when
Barrett threw a beautiful for
ward pass from our forty yard line
to Very who ran the remaining
distance to the goal for our fourth
At the beginning Barrett kicked
off to St. Bonar enture on their
twelve yards. After making two
yards around their own left end, St.
Bonaventure lost the ball by hav
ing two forward passes fail. On the
next play Engle made a brilliant
30 yd. run to our 4 yd. line. Barry
carried the ball over for the first
touchdown. Barrett failed to punt
The second score was made by
Barrett, the ball having been
advanced to our six yards line on
plays by Barry who caught the
kickoff and returned to the middle
of the field, Very who ran twenty
five yares around left end, and by
Miller who in running for a touch
down, stepped out of bounds on his
own six yard line. Barrett kicked
goal. Harlow went over for the
next score and Very on a forward
pass ran about sixty yards for the
fourth touchdown. Barrett ran
from the center of the field to St.
Bonaventure's goal near the end of
this period for the fifth touchdown.
St. Bonaventure showed her best
football in the latter part of the
second quarter. Clare on two suc
cessive plays broke up the inter
ference and tackled the runner. In
three tries our opponents made
their only first down of the period,
and then on an onside kick recover
ed the ball on our twenty-seven
yard line. However at this stage of
the game Wilson secured a fumble
and Barrett immediately kicked the
ball out of danger.
The second half started with a
whole new Penn State lineup, ex
cepting Barrett. The men who
were sent in this period, under Her
mann, played good ball and before
the game was ended added seven
teen points to the previous score of
twenty-nine points, Tobin, Welling,
and Berryman each getting a touch
During the first half all the men
men played exceptional football
considering the fact that so much
energy had been used up in the
preparation and the victory over
Pennsylvania. From the regular
lineup Mauthe was missed, but
Barrett, who kicked in Mauthe's
absence, got his kicks off well and
scored four out of five goals after
touchdown. Hansen has developed
into a guard of the first order'.
Wilson played a consistent game at
left end, brea .ing up most of St.
Bonaventure's end rushes and him
self getting away for an eighteen
yard run around the other end be
sides recovering a fumble at the
end of St. Bonaventure's only stand.
The work of the forwards in the
second half was also very good,
while the seventeen points scored
demonstrated how clearly we can
be congratulated for having two
strings of brilliant backs.

Loctor Sparks' Home Coming
It was gratifying to see how many
men came out to meet Doctor
Sparks last Sunday night in the
Auditorium to hear about his four
thousand mile trip through the
Western college and Universities.
He has much of interest to give u,
concerning the student activities of
these centers of learning and how
the life at Penn State is influencing
Doctor Sparks very happily
yielded his place to Mr. Balmer and
the Kaffir boys last Sunday night
and his account of his trip has been
postponed until this coming Sunday
evening at 6:30 in the Auditorium
With our busy college life it is not
often we have the privilege of
meeting in a personal unofficial way
our president and we trust a large
number of the students will feel it
their privilege to oe present.

Pitttsburg Alumni Enjoy Smoker
An enthusiastic cro vd of some
seventy Penn State inert gathered at
the University Club ast Saturday
evening. It was the .est attended
smoker yet held in t tis vicinity, a
pleasing feature bci,i the large
number of new memb, is.
Considerable interest and en,hu
siasm was worked up n antic ipa lion
of the Pitt game her 2 on Thanks
giving Day. There a general ap
pearance. ur
to keep the cheering section for
men only. This will be of advan
tage in concerted cheering and of
great assistance to the leaders.
Pittsburg men are looking for
ward to this game with a great deal
of enthusiasm. It is their hope
that the defeat of last year will be
more than wiped out and in order
that this may be are straining every
energy in this direction. It was de
cided to hold a smoker at the Fort
Pitt Hotel the night before the
game. More paiticulais in re
gard to this event will be an
nounced later, but the com
mittee promises a celebration which
will bring the spirits of Penn State
men to the highest notch and send
a strong supporting body of men'
out to the game the following after-
The meeting Saturday evening
was marked by the large number
of football men present, Hollenback
and McCleary, coaches; Watson and
Gray of last year's team, Heppen
stall and Sweet of former years.
The Co-ed Show
Great preparations are being made
for the play to be . given on the
evening of November 18 by the
women students of the college. A
competent dramatic coach, Mr. G.
Stuart Bradock, has oeen secured,
and is conducting rehearsals. The
auditorium should be crowded on
the night of the "Co-ed Show."
We Wonder
If there will be enough wood for
the other bonfires.
If the "Coop" window isn't an
excellent bulletin board.
Why all boarding houses don't
celebrate football victories.
Why there was such serious
objection to standing to cheer for
the team last Saturday.
The chapel speaker for Sunday,
November 12, will be the Rev.
Samuel Semple, of the First Presby
terian church, Titusville, Pa.
Word from "Tommy" Fennell.
A recent letter from "Tommy"
Fennell who coached the Penn State
team several seasons says : "You
will realize how much I am tied up
when I state that, although I was
elected Chairman of the Cornell
Football Field Committee, I have
been unable to be in Ithaca at any
time before or during the present
football reason, except to take a
hurried trip over in the auto the
day Cornell played Penn State, and,
by the way, it was a very fine game
of football. Penn State certainly
has a splendid football team and I
congratulate you and the men in
charge of the team on being able ,o
produce such a successful team.
"I have just received void ft..prn
Penn State that there is at present a
slight misunderstanding v.ith the
Cornell authorities as to a wrestling
meet and some other matters. 1
will take steps immediately to see
what I can do to straighten the mat
ter out.
"I believe you had better not
count on my coming down to State
to make a talk on any Sunday
morning as I do not now see any
chance of my setting a pal ticular
date and then being able to keep
the engagement. I certainly would
not want to set a date and then not
be on hand. However, it might be
I possible for me to run clown some
time during the spring term on some
occasion when you have a meeting
of the student body in the evening
of a week day, for some purpose 01
other. You may be sure that noth
ing would give me greater pleasult_
than to meet all may old friends at
State College and to say whatever
I was able to help the boys to fol
low the light path. rime is no
greater work, not even of the clergy
itself, than that done by the college
' presidents and professors in starting
young men out into the battle of life
with the developed equipment to
bring success and the character to
make that success come with hon
or. You may be sure that I will
always be willing to do anything I
can to help you men in the great
work you ate doing."
Mr. Fennell is now a member of
the law firm of Thurston & Fennell,
at Elmira, New York.
Graham of North American will
Visit College.
On Tuesday, November 14, Mr.
Geo. Graham, spotting editor of the
Philadelphia North American, will

photographers to prepare for a
special illustrated writeup on the
college and our football team.
This article will appear in the Sun
day supplement of the "North
American" within the next few
Mr. Graham who is one of the vefy
prominent sporting writeis of the
day, will address the student body
in mass meeting on Tuesday even
ing on the subject "College Foot
ball". As Mr. Graham visits the
majority of our colleges in the
course of his work, we will suffer or
gain according to the comparisons
he claws. Let us turn out in full
fcrce to give him a true Penn State
reception, and to show him the true
position of the college.
