PENN STATE VOLUME 8 NUMBER 7 A PENN STATE VICTORY St. Bonaventure Eleven Defeated by a 46-0 Score. An Entire New Team Scores 17 Points in Second Half. 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 touchdown. 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 out. 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 down. 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 them. 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. First Agricultural Special Last Saturday the first agricul tural train sent out this year by the Pennsylvania railroad completed a three day's tour through the west ern part of the state.

Stephens Sayre Vogel 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- noon. 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. COLLEGIAN. 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 he at the college with a staff of photographers to prepare for a special illustrated writeup on the college and our football team.
