NOTRE ~ DAME*"’ WINS
Visitors Play Fast Game and Break
Penn State’s Row of Victoiies.
Whitney’s Support Ragged.
In a game marred by bad weath
er and poor support back of Whit
ney, Notie Dame won from Penn
State on Saturday, 6to 1. Hender
son was out of the game with an in
jured hand and his “pcppei” was
missed, although Vogt caught a
creditable game. Notre Dame liv
ed up to their reputation of having
one of the fastest college teams of
the year. They were fast on the
bases, fielded cleanly, made their
hits count, and deserved to win.
Crawford scored for State in the
first when he hit to right for thiec
bases, and crossed the plate on
Bieu’s sacrifice fly to centre field.
The visitors made two in the sec
ond. Granfield walked and scored
with Arnfield on the latteTs circuit
smash to right field. Kelly was wild
but was unhittable with men on bas
es, while the visitors scored three
runs in the third on three hits, a
sacrifice, two errors and a passed
ball. Their final count came in the
ninth when Whitney threw Gray’s
tap away, the runner reaching sec
ond from where he scored on
Kelly's third hit. Craig and Blythe
played well for State in the field
and Carson made two hits O’Con
nell and Kelly starred for the

Opinion of Our Graduate Manager.
The financial support given our
Tennis team in it's match with Le
high University next Saluiday will
be taken as an indication of the de
sire of the student body for the
abandonment ci continual cc of
Tennis as an intercollegiate sport.
Vanity Tennis depends almost en
tirely on the gate receipts foi 'it's
support and up to the present time
the debt of the Tennis Association
has increased with cvciy contest.
The largest attendance was at the
match with the University of Penn
sylvania when 35 paid admissions
weic received. There were con
siderably more than 35 spectators
who watched the match but many
positively refused to pay the small
It’is true that our team has not
won a match this ycai but we have
had winner's and will have them
again. We like to tel! and be told
of the wonderful "spiiit” of Penn
State but is it wcrlh much when it
will 9nly supporl a winner ? A lit
tle of that “spirit" en the tide lines
on Saturday might make out play
ers feel that they have something to
play for and—who knows —it might
help along to victory.
Fellows, shall Intercollegiate Ten
nis be dropped cr will we gel be
hind it and “boost” it to the level
of our other Varsity spoi Is ?

NEWS FROM TURKEY
Constantinople, April IS, 1912
When this letter reaches State
College the Italian-Turkish war will
probably be ended; but here it is
very much in evidence. We reach
ed the entrance to the Dardanelles
yesterday morning at daylight on a
French teasel from Smyrna, but a
small Turkish gunboat alocked our
way and v,e lay until noon under
the guns of the forts which guard
the entrance on either hand. A
number of other vessels were like
wise held but rt last the litllc boat
led the crooked way amorg the sub
marine mines with which the en
trance is said to be pla rte 1 and we
followed in a long line, crossing and
re-crossing the nairo." strait as our
leader led the way.
Rumors leached us at Smyrna
that Italian wai vessels were hiding
behind Samnos Island, but this
news was discounted along with
others of its kind. We landed here
this rrorning and alnost at the
same hour the Italian fleet of
tv.enty-scvcn vessels appeared at
the entrance to tne straus and open
ed firejon the forts. If only we had
been a few hours later we might
have sc n the action But we
would not hare reachc 1 Constanti
There is gieat excitenent in the
streets New papers are issuing
extra editions in Fn ncr, Greek and
Arabic Crowds arc -fathered on
eYwy cornel Gwjxir relieve that
the Italians will destroy the forts
and then come on to bombard the
city. We passed about ten Turkish
war vessels lying at tire town of
Dardanelles, this side of the en
trance; what resistance they could
make is a question
At Beyrout I lowed out to the
sunken Turkish men-oi-war in the
harbor and photographed as much
of them as was vi-ible. They
made scarc.dy any resistance when
attacked. This occurn d while we
were on the way to Alexandria.
I have talked with the Secretary
ol the American Embassy who lives
at out hotel and he thinks the at
tack was simplj, - a demonstration to
hasten a reply from the Turks to the
peace proposition presented to them
recently by the Powers I have not
the slighest doubt that this will
prove to be simply "A Dream on
the Dardanelles” and we can carry
out our program of reaving next
week foi Greece. Meanwhile it is
interesting to be near the scene of
On Saturday I expect to attend a
session of the new Turkish Parlia
ment which assembled today with a
great deal of display. Many prov
inces sent in banners and delega
tions with theii deputies. The Sul
tan came down from his palace to
the parliament building in his yacht
which was gaily decorated. But
there seems to be little enthusiasm
for any kind of government. Most
nations believe that Tuikey is
doomed in any event, and the
present assembling or a large Rus
sian force about the Black Sea is
thought to be suggestive of the trend
of events in the near future.

PENN STATE LOSES TO PENN
Visitors Win Tennis Match by 4-0
. The University of Pennsylvania
tennis team experienced little
trouble in taking a fast and well
played tennis match from the
Vaisity on Saturday, May J.lth, by
the score of 4-0. The individual
superiority of the v ; sitors was
apparent at all times and enabled
them to secure easy victories in the
singles. Reber and Allison, of
State, showed excellent form against
Jones and Page, of Penn, in the
doubles, and this was undoubtedly
the best played match of the day.
Summary of o atches.
Singles -Page, Penn, defeated
Aliison, State, 6-1), 6-2; Jones, Penn,
defeated Reber, State, 6-0, 6-0;
Tilden, Penn, defeated Patterson,
State, 6-0, 6-2.
Doubles—Page and Jones, Fenn,
defeated Reber and Allison, State,
Juniors Lose Another.
Ninetccn-Thirtecn suffered its
thiid straight defeat at the hands of
the sophomoies last Saturday on
Old Beaver Field.
The consistent pitching of Gock
ley for the sophomores, and the
difficult running catch made by
Page of the juniors, were the feat
ures of the game. The loss of
Sumner, whose hand was split dur
ing the game, will doubtless be felt
by the sophomore team. Quirk
took Sumner's place behind the bat
for the remainder or the game,
Hammond going to thiid.

H. H. Negley.
Notice has been received of the
death of Mr. Henry H. Negley who
was a member of one of the first
classes in agriculture at Penn State.
He entered in 1859 and attended
school here until a few months be
fore commencement of 1862, when
he would have been graduated, be
ing called home to aid his aged
father on the farm.
Mr. Negley was descended from
Swiss Reformes, and during the 69
years of his life was prominent in
civic and religious affairs of Pitts
burgh and vicinity. He would
have received his Bachelor and
Master degrees as of the class of
1862, at the commencement exer

of ’62 will hold a reunion to cele
brate their fiftieth anniversary.
The International Night.
A unique and interesting program
was presented by the members of
the Cosmopolitan club in their an
nual performance, last Friday even
ing. The various nations were rep
resented by their “sounds,” and
thus the variety of the music was
the feature of the occasion for quite
a number of the nations are repre
sented in this club. Our foreign
students with Prof. Foster, one of
the founders of this organization,
deserve much credit for creating
such an active society.
