Penn State Wins From Colgate in
Best Home Game of 1911 Season.
Captain Very Honored. Touch
down by King and Two by
Penn State defeated Colgate Uni
versity last Saturday afternoon on
New Beaver Field by the score of
17-9. The game was one of the
hardest and the cleanest that has
ever been played on our field. Just
before Referee Young blew the
whistle to start the contest, the two
teams were call• d in front of the
grandstand and Captain Very was
presents d with a beautiful white
Keystone of chrysanthemums with
a large blue S in the center. To
show that the student body and
spectators appreciated the cause of
Dr. Spark's well chosen words of
presentation a rousing cheer was
given for the man that has done so
much toward the remarkable victor
ies of this year—Captain Very.
Colgate played a remarkably
clean and aggressive game through
out the entire four periods. Due
to the speed of the visitors' back
field and to the ability of placing
punts and onside kicks out of reach
of Mill r, Colgate worked the ball
to our thirty-five yard line from
which Huntington dropped back
and kicked a beautiful field goal.
This first score was made early in
the first quarter. In spite of the
-bet that we were within striking
distance of their goal several times
dui ing the first half, even losing the
ball on their four yard line once be
cause of a fumble, the Blue and
White were not able to score, and
the first half ended three to nothing
in favor of Colgate.
In the second half Penn State re
gained the ball after a fumble on
Colgate's thirty yard line. Miller
made nine yards around left end
and gains by Barry, King and
Mauthe gave us a first down.- On
a beautiful pass, Miller to Very, the
latter went across the line from our
first touchdown. Mauthe ~inked
goal. King scored another touch
down in this period, preceded by
Miller's dash for thirty-one yards,
Harlow's gain of twenty yards and
Engle's and Mauthe's contributions
of five and seven yards, respective
Captain Very played a brilliant
game at right end. As a result of
two forward passes which both re
sulted in touchdowns, it was shown
that Coaches McCleary and Hollen
back have greatly perfected this
particular play. Mauthe gave a
splendid exhibition of football.
His punts were long and hard to
handle and on several occasions he
got down the field and tackled the
man after he had received the punt.
Mauthe's work on the defense was
superb. Captain Huntington and
Cook were dangerous men at all
times. Combined with good inter
ference and speed the backfield of
the visitors is such that any team in
the country must duly respect.
The last tally of the game was
made by Huntington. The score
was made by a low onside kick
which was placed so skillfully that
Hermann, who replaced Miller,
could just touch the ball as it rolled
along the ground, Huntington pick
ing it up on our three yard line,
scoring the first touchdown that has
ever been made by a visiting team
on New Beaver Field. The line-up:
Wilson L. E. McLaughlin

Sale of Tickets for Pitt Game
All arrangements have been made
concerning the sale of tickets to the
Penn State-Pitt football game. A
cheering section of one thousand seat
has been secured in the big "Stone
Bleacher" at Forbe's Field. These
are student seats and men only will
be admitted in order to make the
cheering more effective. The band
will be placed in front of this
tion, and with its aid, the Penn
State rooters should cheer splen
For the benefit of those who for
some reason wish other seats, the
following may be announced:—
grand stand seats on the main floor
or balcony are $1.50. and box seats
$2.00, each box holding eight seats.
Students desiring grandstand seats
can secure order blanks from the
graduate manager's office on and
after Monday, November 11. De
tails of the sale of seats in the
cheering section will be given later.
Last Thanksgiving our cheering
was not at all that it should be; in
fact some of the Pittsburg papers
even went so far as to say that "the
old Penn State spirit was lacking".
This must not happen this year.
At the last Pitt game the fault in
the cheering was that too many
visitors were in the State section.
'this year the remedy is the special
cheering sections, and all students
who possibly can, should be at the
place designated.
The Pharsonian Trials
Preparations are being made for
the trials for the Pharsonian Min
strels. These trials will be for end
men, circle, soloists and specialties
and will be held in the near future.
The management desires that a
large number of students, including
freshmen, turn out to help make
this year's show a success. Con
siderable talent was lost last year
by graduation which leaves plenty
of chance for new men to make the
various positions. Do not hesitate
about coming out for the trials as
some of the best acting ever done in
any local organizations has been by
men who did not see possibilities in
themselves at first •but who attained
reputations by the aid of good
coaching. Watch the bulletin
boards and these pages for time of

Sophomores Win Wrestling Meet
Held Under Inteicollegiate Rules.
Final Score 12-8.
Last Friday night amid an en-
thusiastic crowd of rooters,
the freshmen were downed
by the experienced sophomore
wrestlers in a warmly contested
battle. The large crowd present
was highly pleased with the fight
ing spirit of the wrestlers and the
backing given them by their re
spective classes. The meet was
held under intercollegiate rules
which call for seven weights and
allowed three points for a fall and
two points for a decision. Few
definite holds were taken during the
meet, the grapplers preferring to
take a body hold.
Jones 'l4, and Burns 'l5 were the
first men to face each other, their
weight being 115 pounds. Both
these wrestlers immediately fell to
the mat and Jones succeeded in
planting his opponer.t's shoulders
on the mat in two minutes and
forty-four seconds with the front
Nelson combined with the bar lock
Fisher 'l4 and McNamee 'l5, in
the 125 pound class proved to be
the most evenly matched grapplers
of the evening, and it was necessary
for them to wrestle three extra
minutes before the judges were able
to render a fair decision. At the
end of twelve minutes the decision
went to McNamee 'l5 fot superior
In the 135 pound class Callender
'l4 and Smith 15 had a battle
royal lasting eight minutes and
forty-five seconds. Callender,
however, had slightly the better of
Smith and threw him with the body
lock and arm hold.
Allen 'l4 and Gleason 'l5
represented their respective classes
in the 145 pound class. Gleason
had little trouble with his man,
throwing him in two minutes and
twenty-four seconds with a running
into the body hold.
During the first six minutes of
the struggle between Grumbling 'l4
and Enstice 'l5, in the 158 pound
class the latter outwrestled his
opponent. Grumbling, however,
was pluckily fighting all the time
and suddenly surprised the crowd
by throwing Estice with the straight
chancery hold, the time of the
struggle being six minutes and
forty seconds,
Sayre 'l4 and Stephens 'l5 next
appeared upon the mat to take care
of the light heavy weight class.
Sayre soon overcame his opponent's
agressiveness and threw him in one
minute and forty seconds with the
body lock hold.
Lamb 'l5 made short work of
Vogel 'l4 in the heavy weight class.
Lamb used the chancery hold
effectively and at the end of thirty
seven seconds had forced his
opponent's shoulders to hug the
The final score of 12 to 8 in favor
of the sophomores well indicates
the true strength of the two teams.
Although the freshmen fought hard,
the sophomores had the better
team, were more experienced and
deserved the victorx, Lamb, Glea
son, and Enstice of the freshman
team displayed an exceptionally
good class of wrestling and should
prove strong contestants for the var
sity team.

Talk by George Graham
Before a mass meeting which
packed the Old Chapel on Tuesday
evening, Mr. George Graham, sport
ingl Editor of the North American,
gave a very delightful talk. Dean
Jackson, in the speech of introduc
tion, expressed the welcome of the
college, and told of the difficulties
we have have had to gain recogni-1
tion by the newspapers. Mr. Gra
ham devoted the first part of his
speech to a reply to Dean Jackson,
and then gave a thoroughly inter
esting talk on Athletics.
He outlined the history of foot
ball from the origin down through
the various stages which have
brought the game to its - present
form; and showed the constant re
lation between the development of
the game and the exact scientific
principles which helped to produce
it. The psychological features
which are so largely present in any
sport were clearly outlined and em
phasized. Mr. Graham then
brought out examples of plays on
the football field and on the base
ball diamond which show the de
mand in the player, not only of
physical ability, but also of quick
thought and action. Boxing and
swimming were also dicussed in a
very able manner. His speech
made a strong appeal for a closer
study of our sports in relation
especially to the scientific field; and
the subject was received with great
interzst by the audience.
Mr. Walter C. Hobin entertained
the meeting with some interesting
blackboard sketches of athletes in
general, and of several known to us
more personally. Both men ex
pressed themselves as greatly im
pressed with conditions as they
found them at Penn State, and
promised their support in their
particular field of work.
Why so few freshmen attend the
mass meetings on Wednesday morn
If some of us should not show a
great deal more respect to the
rights and duties of our cheer leader
at the games.
If the freshmen will carry canes
to chapel on Sunday.
If the presenting of flowers to
athletic captains is not a pleasant
practice which should be made a
custom here in spite of the appar
ent "jinx" in the first half of Satur
day's game.
How many men will be left in
college to use their tickets to the
returns of the Pitt game.
The Annual Y. W. C. A. Production,
a Comedy in Three Acts, Satur
day Night at Auditorium.
The interest in the plot of "The
Runaway Girl" centers chiefly upon
the exploits of a dashing southern
girl who elopes with her northern
lover, and who by her brilliancy
and wit, saves his life by preventing
his capture. The play is adapted
mostly for laughing and for the
merriment of the spectators, but a
serious interest is added. The
comedy is supplied by the ru
dicrous situations which confront
the elopers at every town. Every
act is brim full of youth, and the
wave of merriment cannot be sup
pressed until the final fall of the
The Auxiliary of the Y. M. C. A.
has taken unusual interest in this
special production which will easily
eclipse all previous efforts in the
legitimate comedy line ever seen in
State College. Between acts a
novelty will be introduced in the
way of the sale of dainty confections
made by the ladies of the town.
A distinguished list of patronesses
will attend.
The following young women
compose the cast:—Miss Meguiar,
Madame Mason; Evelyn Ancona,
Eleanor Hamilton; Florence Powder

Scene occurs at Madam Mason's
Seminary. Period during Civil
War. Time of action during half
of one day. .
The Navy Game on Saturday
The coming game next Saturday
with the Navy at Annapolis will be
the last regular game before the
Pitt contest. Athletic relations be
tween the Navy and Penn State
have always been good. At An
napolis the State game is considered
to be next in importance after the
Army-Navy game. During the last
week Coaches McCleary and Hol
lenback, with the aid of Edward
Wood, the speedy end of 1900 who
returned for a week to his Alma
Mater, have been getting the team
in condition for the game Saturday.
Our team will go east with the
firm intention of beating the team
that, for the last two years in which
football contests have been arranged,
has defeated the Blue and White.
