NAVY GAME A 0-0. TIE
Penn' State-Fails tto • Score 7 id ' Close
, Mauthe Unable to Get Into Game.
On a field in which the mud was
so deep that the yard lines could
not be seen, the Navy eleven held
the Penn State team to a tie score
last Saturday at Annapolis. The
game was a battle royal between two
teams who have not been defeated
Owing to the extreme softness of
the ground, Miller, who received
our kicks on the
,defense, found - it
almost i Lpossible to get. started
quickly. However, this new hero
in the football world managed to
make several; large gains by runs
around the end, the largest of which
was twenty-five yards. The Navy
frequently used the onside kick and
Just at the close of the first
period the Blue and Whit& had
worked the ball to the Navy's three
yard line. From here it looked
easy.,to sdEire,th&lirs l 4tOuchdown A
the beginning of the second , quar
ter. However, a noble stand was
made and Collins kicked the ball
out of danger after •Perm State had
lost the same on downs.
At another time a heavy penalty
on State lessened the chance for an
almost certain score. Mauthe tried
for a field goal in the first half, but
missed by only a few inches, hip
kick being in the face of a strong
wind. Our greatest strength seemed
to •b i jaa . ...tbe. first half, as the ball
was in our ,opponent's territory
nearly all the time. Penn State
blocked three kicks on the Navy.
Miller's recovery of one of these
blocked kicks' was one of the fea
tures of the game.
In the last •part of the game the
ball was quickly worked within
striking.distance-of the Navy!s•goal.

STATE COLLEGE, PA., NOVEMBER 23, 1911
FRESHMEN WIN 12-5
For Three Successive Years, A
Freshman Team Wins the An
nual Class Football Game.
On the afternoon of Pennsyl
vania Day the Sophomores were
defeated by the Freshmen in the
annual football game by the score
of 12-5. Governor Tener and Mrs.
Tener together with a large body of
visitors and students witnessed
the game. The field was in poor
condition, soft in some parts, while
frozen and partly covered with
snow in others.
At 2-30 p. m. the teams lined up
on New Beaver Field, the Freshmen
kicking off. Hitner received the ball
but was downed in his tracks on his
own twenty yard line. The Sopho
mores found the Freshman line im
pregnable and tried to pull off a
false kick which , proved costly; the
ball going to the first year men.
With a series of line plays netting
from four to ten yards at a time the
ball was soon over th • goal line.
Wetson kicked the goal. , Score,
1914, 0-1915, 6. Toward the end
of the quarter the Freshman had a
chance to score again but fumbled
on the Sophomores' five yard line
and lost possession of the ball.
The second quartet was well
fought. Neither team seemed to
have the advantage till the 1915
men pulled off a successful forward
pass and Butzka scored a touch
down. The goal was kicked by
Wetson. Score: sophomores 0,
fresh Men 12. • . _ _
In the third quarter the second
year men kicked off to the 1915
team. After an interchange of
punts the freshmen worked the ball
down to the sophomore six yard
line where they were held for downs.
The ball was punted back to the
center of the field and on a forward
pass tried by the freshman and in
tercepted by 0. Vogle the 1914
team scored a touchdown but fail
ed to kick the goal. Score.l9l4, 5
The fourth quarter was well play
ed by both teams. The sopho
mores tried hard to score and played
their best game at this time. The
game ended with the ball in about
the center of the field.
The poor handling of punts and
the lack of general team work may
have contributed to the sophomores'
defeat while the freshmen's close
following of the ball helped them
greatly. Sayre played a most ex
cellent game for the losing team
and Lamb and Weston proved to
be the freshmen's best.

Pennsylvania Day Exercises
The annual Pennsylvania Day Ex
er ci se s were held in the Auditorium
last Friday morning, and the large
number of visitors and students who
attended certainly paid a fitting trib
ute to the guests of the college.
The meeting was opened by giving
college yells for Governor Tener
and Mrs. Tener, General Stuart, Mr.
Todd, Major Rausch, Mr. Gaether,
and President and Mrs. Sparks.
Dr. Sparks made a brief address
and also read telegrams from Con
gressman Watson and General Bea
ver, in which they expressed their
regrets at being unable to be pres
ent. The President also made men
tion of the demise of Speaker Cox
and Mr. Meyers.
The Glee Club rendered a selec
tion, after which President Sparks
introduced Governor Tener, who
favored the audience with a humor
istic and interesting address.
Governor• Tener introduced Major
General Stuart, who although pic
turing some of the comical incidents
of life, still spoke earnestly in re
gard to military affairs.
Warden John Francies of the
Western Penitentiary, spoke briefly
about the needs and the conditions
of some of the present penal institu
tions. After singing the Alma
Mater and the Blue and White, the
•audience was informally dismissed.
It was s•itisfying to see the spirit
and interest manifested at this
The Pennsylvania Day Dance
Diplomacy consists in getting
what you want--the social set of
the college, or our honored seniors,
wanted a beautiful social funtion,
and thanks to a very efficient com
mittee they got it. The diplomacy
part of it was that the dance was
graced by the presence of Governor
and Mrs. Tener, and many other
distinguished personages. It was a
beautiful sight to behold from the
balcony above—this Pennsylvania
Day Dance. The armory was dec
orated with an array of flags and
banners of all hues and colors, and
the dance hall illuminated with mul
titudes of small electric lights.
The small reception places along
the side lines of the hall were very
pretty and appropriate, and con
venient places for many young la
dies in their exquisite costumes to
converse with their escorts, and to
partake of refreshments between
This dance was "the social func
tion" of this 'all—it was a great
success— enjoyed by everyone who
attended it. Great credit is due
to everyone who in anyway whatso
ever contributed his efforts to make
it so pleasing.

THE RUNAWAY GIRL
Girls of College Present Their An-
nual Play in Auditorium—Con •
cert Between the Acts—Many
Pennsylvania Day Guests Attend
Confections on Sale.
In their annual production, given
as a benefit to the Y. W. C. A., in
the Auditorium last Saturday even
ing, the "Co Eds" filled the audi
ence with merriment by the many
laughable scenes throughout the en
tire performance. The play, a
comedy in three acts, well served
its purpose as being a laugh pro
ducer besides being a decided im
provement on the show of last year.
' The girls, coached by Mr. G.
Stuart Brodock, the author of the
play, acted their respective parts in
true college maiden style although
there was little opportunity for any
but a few of the company to dis
play in their roles any great'acting
I ability, Nevertheless in a very
short space of time the girls suc
ceeded in providing a pleasing en
tertainment when it was much need
ed and their many sincere efforts
demand our praise and thanks. '
Miss Evelyn Ancona was es
pecially good as Eleanor, the Run
. a.,..ay Girl, who, by her cunning
schemes, enables her lover to escape
with his life. The difficult role of
' Madam Mason, President of a
Southern Gills Seminary, was well
I executed by Miss Meguiar.
Richard North, a captain of the
Northern army and Eleanor's lover
who finds himself unable to escape
to the Union lines without the as
sistance of his sweetheart, was rep
resented by Prof. Frizzell in a man
ner which brought forth applause
whenever he appeared.
The two servants, Miss Williams
las Juliet ( colored) and Miss Wha-
I len as Bedelia, by their many
ridiculous actions, produced comedy
enough to excite any audience into
fits of laughter and their feats were

A most pleasing and entertaining
feature of the show was the con
cert between• the acts, given under
the direction of Mrs. Govier. The
program consisted of several piano
duets, a number by the "Co Ed
Glee Club," several well selected
numbers which were rendered in an
excellent manner by the Glee Club,
and a vocal solo by Mr. A. E.
Miller who is the leader of that
The audience was • largely com
posed of Pennsylvania Day visitors
among whom were our distin
