WIN FIRST MEET
Penn State Wrestling Team Loses
to Cornell 12-6—Shollenberger
and Fulkman Secure Falls.
Scoring two falls and three de
cisions to our two falls, Cornell de
feated Penn State in_ a very fast
meet at Ithaca Fricfay night. The
bouts were all closely contested,
several bordering on the sensational
order. The only exception to inter
collegiate rules under which the
meet was held was the fact that, if
a man secured a hold on the mat
and wfie—fcrccd c-ff, the- wrestling
was continued on -the floor. Three
points were given for a fall and two
for a decision. The bouts were all
interesting and a large number of
students witnessed the contest.
Decisions were given on rolling
falls, a rule that our men were un
The 115 pound match started the
meet with a rush. Mason of Cor
nell showed aggressiveness at the
beginning, but Park secured the ad
vantage for two minutes by an arm
roll. Mason was given the decision
in nine minutes.
In the 125 pound class, Matchat
and Callendar were very evenly
matched, both guarding so closely
that most of the first nine minutes
and the two extra periods of three
minutes each were spent in grap
pling. On a very close decision
Cornell won on aggressiveness.
Fulkman threw Lewis after 6 min
utes 31 second by a half Nelson and
body hold. This bout which result
ed in a fall for the Blue and White
was the fastest of the evening.
Great credit is due Fulkman, es
pecially as the Cornell meet was his
first varsity contest.
After 50 seconds of grappling
Shollenberger went to the mat with
Stokoe. Shollenberger’s experience
enabled him to win a fall from his
opponent by a bar lock and head
hold in 3 minutes and 39 sec
Shaw’s fall from Very in the 158
pound class came as a surprise.
After a minute the men closed and
went to the mat with Very on top.
Shaw won the event by a double
arm roll, securing a fall in 4 minutes
In the 175 pound class, Captain
Lesh was thrown by Bame in 7
minute 51 seconds on a half Nelson
and bar lock. Lesh secured a neck
chancery, but Bame pushed it off
before the fall.
Five minutes of grappling in the
heavy weight bout between Captain
Collins of Cornell and Lamb re
sulted in no advantage on either
side. Collins then took the offen
sive and sent his opponent to the
mat. Lamb lost on a decision.

Sophomores Lead Again
Last Saturday evening the juniors
were defeated by the sophomores
in an exceedingly fast game of
basketball by the score of 48 to 23.

and the large score did not make
the game uninteresting, since there
was good playing to be seen at all

position again, all that was neces

game and with both teams knowing
| this, the game was, naturally, hard
fought. The juniors scored five
'points on_ the sophomores early in

before the latter got started.
Throughout the entire first period

PRICE FIVE CENTS
BIG THESPIAN SHOW
“The Commandant" on March 15-,
Promises To Be Best Show Ever.
Strong in Cast and Chorus—Elab-
orate Scenery and Dazzling
Three weeks from to-morrow night
the Thespian organization will pro
duce its annual show, prior to the
extended trip which will be made
by the thirty-two actors and actor
ines in the first week in April.
Coach Downing is working his
men night and day to produce a
show which will equal and indeed
surpass all past productions given
jj, .1., u...... it
it would seem that such will surely
be the result. Novelty dances will
be introduced, the equal of which
has not been seen in any of our
modem ball rooms. The ban has
not been placed on the Turkey Trot
or the Hula Hula but rather two
more striking and graceful dances,
notably the “Japanese Glide” and
the “Camel Ride” will be presented
to the followers of the Thespians
on Friday, March 15.
The first scene laid in the Arm
ory at Penn State presents an en
tirely new idea for future com
mencement dances —Can you
guess it ?
The second act of the show trans
ports the audience to Japan and in
troduces a wonderful panorama of
Japanense scenes and characters,
and any person who has never had
the pleasure of a trip to Japan can
not well afford to miss this chance
of seeing its wonders and beauties.
The management has gone to a,
great expense to procure elaborate
unique, and dazzling costumes,
which together with the appropriate
and beautiful scenery that is being
prepared by famous artists, are sure
to hold the audience bewildered
The first show has usually been
considered a trial one but this year
the finished product will be placed
before the public. No true Penn
State man, from senior to freshman,
can afford to miss the blushing but
confident de’but of this brilliant
production “The Commandant.”
The Yale wrestling team will fur
nish the first contest at State Col
lege Friday evening at se\ en o’clock
in the Armory. Perry and Avery
who were on the Yale team last
year will be in the contest tomorrow
night. The meet will be the best
