THE REGISTRAR, State College, Pennsylvania
Penn State is the First American
College to Receive Results of
Football Game Via Wireless.
The recent victory at Philadel
phia brought to light the efficiency
of the wireless equipment at this
college. The results of the Penn—
Penn State football game were
telephoned from Franklin Field to
the operator at the John Wana
maker store in Philadelphia who
immediately sent the news via
wireless to the college station here.
The messages, which were received
by Mr. N. H. Slaughter of the
Electrical Engineering department,
were the first official messages
directed to the Pennsylvania State
College wireless station. The
messages received last Saturday
were as follows:

Dr. Wilson Sends Congratulations.
The following letter received by
Y. M. C. A..secretary after victory
over Penn.
Dear Mr. Buchman:
I wish you would convey to my
friends, the students of State Col
lege, my hearty congratulations
over their victory on Saturday.
It is never easy to acknowledge
defeat with a generous grace, and
yet it hurts no man to humble him
self now and then berme a worthy
foe. Your boys deserve every
tribute and I for one am glad to
give them their due. I myself have
gained inspiration from contact with
your student body and learned at
first hand the mettle of which :hey
are made.
You can give them this message
in public or private, as you please.
I simply want them to know that I
am glad for them in the midst of
my own sorrow.
With best personal regards and
Sincerely yours,
Robert N. Wilson Jr.

y. M. C. A. COURSE
The Kaffir Boys of Africa Render
an Excellent Program in the Au
The first of the Young Men's
Christian Association course of
entertainments for this year was
given in the Auditorium Saturday
evening by Mr. Balmer and his
Kaffir Boys of Africa, assisted by
Miss Elsie Clark. The entertain
ment was beyond a doubt one of
the most enjoyable ever given in
State College.
Mr. Balmer, who has spent twenty
eight years in Africa, and has
travelled throughout its extent,
gave an interesting talk about the
dark contincnt and its people.
Miss Clark, whose home is in
Africa, gave an enjoyable descrip
tion of the condition of the native
women of the country. At intervals,
the five boys in native costume
sang choruses, duets, and solos, and
more than captivated the audience.
Mr. T. H. Balmer has for the
past twenty years spent much of
his time in training boys of the dif
ferent African tribes, at first merely
as an experiment. He was so suc
cessful, and was received so well in
the cities of South Africa, that he
was asked to present his boys to
Queen Victoria, at London. Since•
then Mr. Balmer has made extensive
tours, this being his third visit to
ihe United States.
The boys who rttc.here_Satut
day are Sabalala, of the Dingo
tribe; Koortie, a Hottentot; "I`,llsluzl,
a Basutu; Pongoma, an Amaxosr.,
and Tamsanqua, a Zulu. Their ages
range from four to fifteen year:.
They s-ng in three languages—
English, Kaffir, and Hottentot--
and their voices, their expression,
and their bearing before a large
audience were no less than wonde -
ful,even if one leaves out of con
sideration the fact that they are of
a semi-barbarian race, and, with
the exception of the oldest, have
been with Mr. Balmer for only a
short time.
The audience was large, but not
as many stu,ients as should, have
taken advant:ge of the opportunity
which the Y. M. C. A. course of
Mr. Gravatt Takes a Sabattic Year
After six yews of work as a
member of the Department of
Mathematics, Mr. Thomas E. Gra
vatt has left on a year's leave of
absence. He will pursue advanced
work in the University of Pennsyl
vania, by which institution he has
just been granted a fellowship in
Mathematics. Already Mr. Gra
vatt has become domiciled in Phila
delphia and has entered upon his
post-graduate work.
Mr. Gravatt took his under
graduate course in Rutgers College,
whence he was graduated in 1901
after which he studied for two years
in Yale University. For two years
he taught Mathematics in the Uni
versity Preparatory School of
Ithaca, New York, since which time
he has been a member of the
Faculty of the Pennsylvania State
College. For the past two years
' Professor Gravatt has been a mem
ber of the Board of Freshmen
Advisors. He enters upon his
year's work in Philadelphia with the
good wishes of both Faculty and
student body.
Sophomore and Freshman Teams
Rapidly Rounding Into Shape for
Pennsylvania Day Game.
Both Manager Bloomfield of the
1914 team and Manager Weaver of
the 1915 team have made calls for
candidates for the class teams
which resulted in about fifty men
reporting to the former while the
latter had nearly eighty on the field
the first night. Both squads were
recently cut to twenty-five players
The sophomores' are getting into
form under the eyes of Coaches
Reed, Miller, and Johnson. Reed
has been drilling the line men ane
ends to get down the field uncler
punts while Miller is instructing the
back field men in catching aml run
ning back kicks. Signal practice
and scrimmage are on the program
every evening. The material for
the ends is good, Li:ldsay, Gal
lagher, Gage, and McCormick being
of nearly equal merit. The tackle
positions are being covered by Cut
ler, Hess and Gocicley. Cut
tier and Hess are both heavy and
sure tacklers while Gockley is
somewhat lighlet but exceedingly
fast. Sayer and Resch seem to have
it their own way in regard to the
guards. The center position is con
tested by De Voe and Coffman.
The backfield is made up of
qua rter, P• I. 1V1,;7,r and N.
Moyer, halves, and Junkin, tull.
This 1914 team is a fast aggrega
tion and is being further strengthen
ed by the appearance of some of
the varsity scrubs. Such men as
Hittner, Foster, Shupe, Fleming,
Vogel and Ford will prove valuable
to the coaches in rounding out the
Coach "Henny" Weave r has the
freshman squad in charge and is
rapidly developing them into form.
There are many former "Prep"
school stars in the line tin and from
all appearances they should give the
sophomores a hard fight on Pennsyl
vania Day.
M.:n like Greenwalt, Hoffman,
Hays, Robinson, Sleppy and Moffit
have shown up particularly well,
and these men supplemented by the
players that have come from the
varsity squad make a formidabl,!
eleven. So far Berryman and To
bin are the only freshmen ineligible
to play with the first year team.
School of Mines Awarded Medal.
The School of Mines has been
notified that its exhibit made at the
Turin, Italy, Exposition last year
has been given a silver medal by
the jury of awards. Only a small
part of the material in the Museum
was sent since most of it is too
large to transport. This prize - is an
additional proof that this college
possesses a mining museum ex
celled by that of no American col
"LIFE" is offering a novel and
