THE DUNBAR BELLRINGERS
Musical Entertainment Given Un
der Management of the Pharsoni-
ans Saturday Evening
Last Saturday . evening at the
Auditorium the well known Dunbar
musicians gave their always pleas
ing entertainment, under the aus
pices and management of the Penn
State Pharsonians. The Dunbar
comp . q.ny is well known in State
College, and, needless to say, the
the performance was greatly en
joyed by the audience.
The program was entirely differ
ent from that given here last year.
Besides the musical selections
played on the wonderful chimes,
cello solos, and cello and flute du
ets were played. The vocal num
bers were very pleasing, consisting of
quartettes and solos. Pleasing
variations from the music were the
comic readings given by Mr. Harry
Dunbar in his inimitable style. The
Pharsonian management is to be
complimented in securing this

Sophomores Win Another
In the most exciting interclass
basketball game yet played this
season, the seniors met their sec
ond defeat at the hands of the
sophomores by the score of 38-35
on Monday night. One can readily
realize that the game was hotly
played when it is known that an
extra five minute period was neces
sary to decide to whom the ucnor
Neither team ,showed a decided
superiority over the other, although
it must be said that the seniors ex
celled slightly in team work and in
long distance goal .shooting. Yet
the sophomores were in the lead by
three points at the end of the first
half. It was only by some splendidly
fast playing in the second period,
that the seniors were able to forge
ahead of their opponents and 1914
was fortunate to, be able to tie the
score. In the extra period 'which
necessarily followed, 1914 won
their second victory of this year.
Up to the present time the stand
ing of the teams as shown below
gives the sophomores first place
with the juniors and freshmen tied
for second and the seniors last.

Out of four games thus far
played, three have been exception
ally good and of such a nmore as
should da.tract - - the - dttention — oi. fife
lovers of this sport, almost, if not
altogether, as much as the \arsity
games. TM- scores of three of
.these contests show also that the
teams this year are very evenly
matched hrid some more elteitmg
battles will surely result in the fu
turf. Since this is an interclass
league,, each team deserves and is
worthy of the earnest support of
their respective classes. At there
past few games the fellows have
come out in disgustingly poor um
bers and as yet very few tickets
have been sold—in fact not enough
to defray the expenses of the
league. The freshmen, especially.
have failed to do their duty toward
their team which needs encourage
ment if they are to continue playing
the game as they have been in their
two contests. Remembering too
that much of our varsity basketball,
material is developed in this league,
