VOLUME 8 NUMBER 25
Selinsgrove Collegians Easy for
Our Pitchers and Batsmen—Craig
and McKibben Hit Often.
With the baseball diamond of
New Beaver Field in the best con
dition and a clear sky overhead,
Susquehanna University went down
to defeat before Captain Eberlein’s
nine by the score of 20 to 0.
Wardwell, the former Andover
Academy pitcher, in his first ap
pearance before a home crowd
struck out the opposing batters at
will and did not allow a single hit
the five innings he was in the box.
Whitney pitched the remaining
innings striking out five men and
allowing one hit.
The home team started to score
in the first inning, making five runs.
The heaviest scoring was in the
sixth inning, when eight men crossed
the plate. It was in this batting
fest that Jack Eberlein drove out a
three base hit scoring three men.
Carson’s home run and the fielding
of Crawford featured in the game.
Boyer was the only Susquehanna
man to get a hit. He batted out a
single in the sixth inning but was put
out stealing second. The summary

Despite the fact that the seniors
are financially unable to support a
team this season, the three lower
classes in the league, have arranged
a schedule which promises to equal
that of other years.
The calls for candidates, issued
by Managers Reist, Swift and Hess,
have resulted in many new men re
porting for practice, and with the
abundance of material to pick from,
each class should have a team
which will put up a good fight for
Whether our interclass baseball
season will be a financial success or
not, will depend on the support
which the members of each class
give their respective teams. No
better opportunity than this is
afforded to do something for your
class, and every one should feel it
his duty to attend these games and
root for his team. A schedule of
twelve games is to be played.
A sacred concert will be given in
the Auditorium Sunday evening at
eight o'clock. All are invited to
Various Tournaments to be Held
Throughout the Spring.
The Tennis Team will play its
first match of the spiing season at
home with the University of Pitts
burgh on May 1, less than a week
away. Due to the fact that none of
the members of last year’s success
ful team returned to college last
fall, the coach and manager find
themselves faced with the task of
building up a successful tennis
team from men of ability untried in
Intercollegiate matches. Conse
quently it is hoped that every man
of any ability at all in tennis will
come out for the team and help to
make the season a success. Several
tournaments will be held in which
every man will have a chance to
show his ability, and from the
showing made in these tournaments
the final team as well as the Cap
tain will be chosen. Among those
who were on the tennis squad last
fall and who are expected to make
strong bids for the team are Irish,
McConnel, Patterson, Reber, Har
ris, Ware, Hastings, Walters, Har
rower and Hay. The following
schedule has been arranged by

Dean Crane to Visit Alaska,
Dean W. R. Crane, of the School
of Mines, has been granted a year's
leave of absence, for the purpose of
visiting Alaska to make a complete
study of the coal resources of that
Dr. Crane feels that it will be of
interest and value to make an ex
haustive and unbiased study of the
Alaskan coal situation in order to
clear up if possible the more or less
confused ideas concerning the value
and importance of these coal beds.
He will leave just as soon as possi
ble after the close of college, and
will return in September 1913.

STATE COLLEGE, PA., APRIL 25, 1912
The College Minstrels Gave Their
Annual Performance i i the Audi
torium Last Saturday Night.
When the curtain went up in the
Auditorium at 8:15 Sati rday even
ing, it was the cue for th : beginning
of two solid hours of first class
amusement. The Phars mians were
on their marks, and res dy to sur
pass all their previous records. Al
though -at the beginning of the per
formance things seemed to lag a
little, the Minstrels soon struck
their stride and trom then on there
was not a dull moment. The per
formers entered into the spirit of
the occasion and presented such
amusing actions that they drew one
round of applause after another
from an appreciative audience.
The music was especially pleasing
throughout the whole show. Every
one of the special numbers made a
decided hit. They were original
and excellently produced.
Gray, Kaiser, Webner, Buck,
Entwisle, and Meyers as soloists
all deserve much credit. Gray's
rendition of "Naomi”, the words of
which were written by Prof. J. S.
Crandell, was especially pleasing to
Junkin as interlocutor and Nel
son, Greene,Gauthier, and McKnight
as ends kept the mirth f owing at a
lively pace. Nelson aid Greene
were easily the stars of the evening.
Nelson scored a big hit ,'n his song
entitled, “Oh, Would’nt that be a
Dream” in which
many humorous parodies, as did
Greene in his little ditty called
“Dat's Enuf". They both starred
in their spirited sketch “The Rag
time Violin”. Gauthier represented
a typical coon when he sang
“Chicken Reel", McKnight came
back strong on his encore for “May
be I’ll Come Back”.
Hillery and Stonerod took the
house by storm with their sketch
of grand opera and mind reading.
Buck and his pickaninny dancers
conveyed the spirit of the planta
tion in their number.
Meyers and Entwisle gave a clever
imitation of Nora Bayes and Jack
Norwood singing their “Moon
Greene, Gauthier, Nelson, and
Buck closed the performance with an
original sketch entitled, “The Com
The work of the chorus was not
very good. However, considering
the fact that it was an exceptionally
large one, the difficulty of securing
perfection in singing and in acting
can be I'ealized. The Mandolin and
Guitar Clubs assisted the chorus.
The exceller' 'ighting effect, the
efficient coaching managing, to
gether with the performance of
of several individual stirs, were
the winning features of tjhis year’s
Pharsonians. Among the latter
was our well known “Bobg” Nel
son who has, in many instances,
made the whole show himself, and
he contributed a large part to Sat
“Bill” Hollenbach Reco
“Bill” Hollenbach, whe
cessfully coached our t
football team this year, h
gone an operation at the
Hospital of Philadelphia,
received in his famous
career caused the troubl
operation was successful.
Trials for the 1915 debal
will be held Friday April
o’clock, in room 114 Main.
Promising Prospects For Present
The sophomores, Leyden, Rein
hart, and Chamberlain and the
freshmen, Piner, Michner, Entwisle
and Hedrick made fast time on the
cinder path Tuesday afternoon
and from these men five will be
chosen to repiesent Penn State at
the Penn Relays to be held on
Franklin Field in Philadelphia this
Saturday. Four of the runners will
take part in the one mile relay race
and the fifth man will be used as a
substitute. Leyden took part in the
relays last year. The men averag
ed 53 3-5 seconds in the trials.
Director Golden has been unable
to get a good line on the men owing
to unfavorable weather conditions
but with his efficient coaching, a
promising track si-ason is assured.
Captain Watts will take care of the
two mile races while Lumm, Savery,
and Fulkman, will look after the
mile runs and Leyden the half. Piner
has shown good form in everything
from 100 to 440 yards. Chubb,
Reinhart and Entwisle are expect
ed to make fast time in the quarter
mile events. Park and Lamb will
be used in the high jump and Hen
ney T 4 in the broad jump. Lamb
is also developing into a weight
In practice,Chamberlain has done
the best work in the hurdles while
Pier, Armsby and Silver have also
shown good form. Hoskins, May

THE GOLDEN WEST
Nox McCain To Lecture Here on
Interesting Subject and For a
We have always believed, here
at Penn State, in doing everything
to keep our college campus and
buildings appearing at their very
best; and an opportunity is now of
fered to continue this custom. The
so called “bulletin boards" in the
college buildings, especially in Old
Main and the Engineering Building,
have come to be very disagreeable
objects. It is necessary to have
convenient bulletin boards where
notices may be posted, and plans
have been made to erect modern
boards so arranged that all signs
may be posted uniformly by the
college. A design made by H. S.
Rogers T 2, has been approved by
the faculty, and to secure the
necessary funds, a committee has
secured, as a lecturer, the services
of Col. George Nox McCain.
Nox McCain rwo years ago gave
a series of five lectures here, and
needs no introduction to those
fortunate enough to have heaid
him. He is a splendid speaker, and
a man of wonderful personality,
holding his audiences in rapt atten
tion from beginning to end of any
of his famous lectures. As a
traveller, Col. McCain has lectured
in every part of the world; and in
the Auditorium on Saturday, April
27, at 7:45 p. m , he will speak on
his favorite subject, “The Golden
West” This will pro v e c very in
teresting topic, the more so because
of the wonderful colored motion
pictures used for illustiation.
Tickets can be procured at the
Business Office, Toggery Shop,
Drug Store and from a committee
of seniors—price, 25 cents. Re
member the date—Saturday, April
27, at 7:45 p. m. sharp.
The Flower Show.
For the second time in the his
tory of the institution, the faculty,
students, and public were treated
to a rare scene of beauty such as
can be presented only by a display
of flowers like unto that exhibited
at the annual show of the Depart
ment of Horticulture and the Penn
State Crab Apple Club, last Satur
day. A number of well known
leading florists of the state con
tributed generously in augmenting
the collection of the Department of
Horticulture. The college exhibit
showed much improvement over
that of last year, and the student
designs, which were also displayed,
caused considerable comment.
The display consisted of the dif
ferent varieties of roses, carna
tions, hyacinths, lilies, sweet-peas,
pansies, potted specimens, and de
signs. The roses and carnations
were represented in almost every
variety, and were, by far, the pretti
est flowers there, although the dis
play included a collection of su
perb specimens of eveiy flower
shown. Professor Gregg who man
aged the show deserves much credit
for maintaining the interest for
floriculture here at Penn State, and
for securing the invaluable assist
ance of the state florists in making
our flower shows not only the most
popular but also the most beautiful
exhibits given at the college.
The annual interscholastic track
meet, to be held under the auspices
of the Penn State Athletic Associa
tion, will take place on New Beaver
