Penn State VOLUME 8 NUMBER 18 CORNELL WRESTLERS 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 used to. 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 onds. . 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 36 seconds. 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.

WE WONDER If our President was not very well pleased with his rousing send off. If, too, we do not wish him and his family a most pleasant vacation. If we are not mighty eager for that Yale meet. If, too, we should not endeavor to make a lasting impression upon the first athletic team of that uni versity to come to Penn State. If our new eligibility rule will not bring us more recognition from the larger colleges. How many are pleased with their grade reports. If that band concert on Sunday was not highly appreciated. If the "movies” will, some day entirely replace Penn State spirit. Fraternity Bible Classes. The following fraternities have Bible classes: Beta Theta Pi, Sig ma Chi, Kappa Sigma, Phi Gamma Delta, Delta Upsilon, Alpha Chi Sigma, Alpha Kappa Delta, Theta Psi, and Alpha Delta Sigma. State two years ago had the national record for fraternity Bible classes, every chapter but one hav ing a class. The Y. M. C. A. and the Sigma Chi fraternity substantially helped Mr. Woods of Shingletown, who was recently burned out, and who has lost everything. Besides the parents, there was a family of five children.

In the coming wrestling meet to be held in the Armory on Saturday between Yale University and Penn State, Yale will be represented by the following line-up: 115 pound class —Ingram. 125 pound class —Hute. 135 pound class —Colver. 145 pound class —May. 158 pound class —Avery. 175 pound class —Newberry or Allen. Heavy weight class —Capt. Perry. Assistant Manager Warren has charge of the team for this trip. In our display of the old spirit which will naturally be in evidence at this big wrestling meet, let us make sure that nothing unsports manlike mars our reception of the Yale team. Plenty of spirit, yes; but remember the old square, hon orable policy of meeting our opponents. This meet is regarded as a step toward restoring athletic relations between the two institutions and if the effort is to be successful, we must do our part by properly entertaining the visiting team. Big Show Tonight. In what promises to be one of the best shows ever seen at State College, a large cast of students and faculty will produce “The College Boy’s Wedding” tonight in the Auditorium. Don’t miss it! If you do, you will be “too far back” to carry on’ an intelligent conversation. “Get in college”, and be there tonight. Collegian. fEBRUARY 22, 1912 ILING SQUAD. Sophomores Lead Again SEATED Last Saturday evening the juniors were defeated by the sophomores in an exceedingly fast game of basketball by the score of 48 to 23. It was not an easy victory tor 1914 and the large score did not make the game uninteresting, since there was good playing to be seen at all times. | Since the defeat of 1914 on last Wednesday night, 1913 held first ■ place in the league. To regain this position again, all that was neces ■ sary for the sophs was to win this game and with both teams knowing | this, the game was, naturally, hard fought. The juniors scored five 'points on_ the sophomores early in | the contest and ~it was "along time before the latter got started. Throughout the entire first period both teams were evenly matched land they alternated in taking the I lead. Later in the game the soph’s five developed such wonderfully good team work, passed so surely, and shot goals in such lapid order that their opponents were almost overwhelmed. The juniors fought hard to prevent defeat, but in vain. The lineup: 1914—48 Binder Leyden (Moore) f Maybee Savery c Murphy Warr g Karcher (Reel) Quirk g Hoffmann Field goals—Binder 5, Leyden 3, Savery 8, Quirk 6, Erwin. Maybee 6, Murphy 3. Foul goals—Binder 4 out of 7, Erwin 3 out 6. Referee—Love ndge ’l2. A larger number of students wit nessed this game than any previous to it this year and there was also more class spirit shown than ever before. The managers are glad to see the students come out, but they would also like to see spectators stop at the door and buy tickets be fore entering to see the race for championship interclass basket ball. The percentages up to date follow: Won Lost Pet. 1914 4 2 .666 1913 3 2 .600 1912 2 2 .500 1915 1 4 .200 Memorial Service on Sunday.

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 Costumes. 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 and spell-bound. 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.” 1913-23 Erwin Yale Meet.
