1915 Springs a Surprise and Nearly
Defeats 1914—Final Score 29-28.
Was Poorly Attended.
When the sophomores, cham
pions in interclass basketball, ap-»
peared on the Armory floor to bat
tle with the freshmen, the poorest
in the league, for class honors on
Saturday night; there were various
opinions entertained by all present,
concerning the outcome of the
scrap. It was not long, however,
before the freshmen showed their
realization of the importance of this
contest, and as a result, an exciting
Binder started the scoring with a
foul goal. Shortly afterward, Park
scored two on a field goal, and then
the game was on. It was rather
slow and uninteresting in the first
half the freshmen missing many
goals, and showing imperfect team
work, while the sophs were ex
tremely fortunate in caging many
balls thrown from difficult angles.
These sensational shots were the
features of the first half which end
ed with the score 18 to 10 in favor
In the second half, with a few
substitutions, the freshmen were
able to perfect their splendid team
work which was apparent at all
times, and the sophomores were
put on the defense. The 1915 men
soon overcame the large lead against
-t&sm-aad-then brought the game to
the point where a goal for either
side tied the score or gave one
team a lead of one point. The last
minutes of play were so sensational
and thrilling that the spectators
were forced to their feet, shouting
madly for their favorites. Had the
freshmen been as accurate in goal
shooting as their opponents were,
they would surely have won the
game. Of their many attempts to
cage the ball from the field, only 10
Captain Binder of the sophomore
team was the star of the game. He
really won the scrap for his class by
his accurate shooting of both foul
and field goals and his all around
floor work. It was his field goal that
won the game for 1914 in almost
the last minute of play. They
scored only 11 points in the second
half, 9 ot which were made by this
nimble little captain. Quirk also
played an excellent game at guard
for the sophs.
For the freshmen, Walton, Park
and Smiley starred. The former
played well at center. Park figured
largely in the scoring for his
team, 20 of the, 28 points resulting
from his foul and field goals.
Smiley’s perfect guarding was one
of the chief obstacles in the way of
an easy victory for 1914.
The game was very poorly at
tended; the lower classes being rep
resented by especially small num
bers. However, the customary
class spirit was not lacking. The
annual sophomore miner stunt was
presented between the halves.

Minor Sports Council Votes Letters
to Team—J. H. Shollenberger
At the meeting of the Minor
Sports Council Saturday afternoon
the “w S t” was awarded to Cap
tain Lesh, Park, Callender, Fulk
man, Shollenberger,Very, Lamb and
Manager Knight. B. A. Jarrett,
'l3, was elected wrestling manager
for next year.
Wrestling affairs were carried out
in excellent shape this fall. Man
ager Knight in addition to two well
arranged trips on his schedule took
care of three of the largest crowds
that ever gathered in the Armory to
witness athletic contests. Finan
cially, the season was a success.
Captain Lesh’s team has made a
a great name for itself and one
that by scoring victories over Penn
Yale and Lehigh in a clean and
hard-contested series of matches
has brought wrestling at Penn State
before the eyes of eastern critics to
such an extent as was never before
realized. The coaching of the
team this winter was excellent.
Messrs. Lewis and Neidig were in
valuable toward the good showing
made. In fact the only serious
jSoblem that has arisen is the fact
of the resignation of Coach Lewis
for next year. Every effort will be
made to get the Physical Director
to reverse his decision and again
work with next year’s men as few
other coaches can.
The varsity wrestling team won
24 bouts, lost 10, and tied 1. 16 of
these bouts were won by falls and
8 by decisions in the five regularly
scheduled meets. Thirtysix men
competed in trials for the team.
The team on Saturday afternoon
elected J. H. Shollenberger T 3
captain for the season of 1913.
Shollenberger has had two years
experience and has developed into
one of the best 145 lbs. class men in
the country, as was clearly shown
by the way in which he secured
five straight falls this season-
Grumbling, Sayre and D. Hess were
elected from the class of 1914 as
Mr. Crandell Interested.
Mr. J. S. Crandell will represent
the College at the Intercollegiate
Aeronautical Association in New
York City on April 8. The asso
ciation was formed for the purpose
of promoting interest in aeroplanes
in colleges. Penn State has been
invited to take part in a glider
meet, but up to the present time no
one has taken sufficient interest in
the sport. Mr. Crandell has started
the putting together of the Curtiss bi
plane owned by the college and ex
pects to take lessons at Belmont
Park, Long Island, beginning at
Easter vacation. Mr. Crandell’s
plans are to fly before summer.
The Sophomore class this year
will keep up the custom of “guard
ing Campus” previous to the flag
scrap, and have attemped by class
action to remove one of the features
which has proved so objectionable
in former years. The Class voted
to severely discountenance the use
of intoxicating liquors while on
duty at night on the Campus.
“Another triumph for the cause
of Prohibition." .

A meeting of the 1912 junior
prom committee will be held at the

Outlook For Present Season Not
Bright—Team Leaves For South
The prospects of Penn State hav
ing a winning baseball team this
spring are indeed very discouraging.
But five “S” men from last year’s
squad remain in college, namely,
Captain Eberlein, Blythe, Whitney,
Craig and Carson. The weather
conditions have been too unfavor
able for outdoor practice and this
fact has naturally materially ha idi
capped Coach Manning in choosing
the best men for the nine positions.
He selected the following 18 men
for the training table: Eberlein,
Blythe, Bien, Whitney, Henderson,
Murphy, Craig, Graham, Miller,
Walker, Tobin, Vogt, Leibert,
Wordwell, Keppel, McCracken,
Kern and Crawford.
In the pitcher’s box, Whitney and
Murphy of last year’s squad will be
on hand, and the new recruits show
ing up well for the hurling positions
are Tobin, Wordwell, Leibert, Kep
pel and Walker, the last four named
men entering Penn State from And
over, North East Manual, Gettys
burg and Virginia Polytechnical, re
spectively. The present conditions
indicate that the catching corps will
be made up of Henderson, Graham
and Vogt. The players competing
for the other infield positions are
Eberlein, Blythe, Bien, Carson and
McCracken while the outfield berths
are being strenuously fought for by
Carson, Craig, Miller, Kern, Craw
ford and McKibben.
The team including 13 players,
Coach Manning and Manager Devor
will take a flying journey South
next week leaving State College
Monday and reaching Columbia, S.
C., Tuesday where it plays the
University of South Carolina on
Wednesday. The trip will close with
a game with the Washington and
Lee University at Lexington on
April 9 after which the team will
return home to open the Beaver
Field season on April 13 with Car
negie Tech of Pittsburgh as op
ponents. The schedule for the
first trip follows:
