(Dr. ■ Sparks began his vacation drip several months ago, and since then he has seen and experienced many interesting things. ~ He has visited Egypt and Turkey, and has ; been oh,' foreign waters. It would be needless.to relate how he spent his time, for we have been fortunate •enough in having received several interesting letters from Egypt and Turkey, and we all expect to hear something about his travels in the future. Dr> Sparks left to enjoy a much needed rest on another continent. It is to sbe hoped that he pomes back to us feelffijg greatly refreshed and bringing with him many pleas ant reminiscences. We express the sentiment of the faculty and stu dents of State College, when we ex tend to Dr. Sparks a most hearty welcome. We hope that our President may long enjoy the best of health, so that Penn State may prosper for many years to come under his wise and tactful guidance. , ALUMNI REUNION. Tuesday 'Will be the Day of Re unions of Several Classes—The Fiftieth-Anniversary of ’62. As /.usual, ;Tuesday, June 11, of Cotnmencpm&rtrweek will be alum ni day and plans are being made to have here for that day at least as many as possible former Penn State men. A special effort is being made under the direction of ,Dr. G. G. Pond to bring about a reunion of the class of 1862, the second to graduate from this institution. The class''of* 1862 ’during their years in' college had a total of eighty-eight members, of whom thirty-seven: are r ;now. living. Many men did not graduate, but left'col lege before completing their courses. Of those men who received degrees, only seven are now living, and it is expected all of these men will attend the reunion. They are: H. R. Breneman, of Lancaster; R. H. Furst, of Cedar Springs; Dr. George Gleim, of Landsdowne; J. F. Miles, of North Springfield; W. A. Shinn, of Ossining, N. Y.; F. C. Watts, of President E. E. Sparks Chambersburg; and John I. Thomp son, of Lemont, who is now acting as treasurer of this college. A number of active members of this class who did not graduate are expected to be here, and all will take part in the alumni parade. In the Auditorium at 11:00 a. m., a Dr. Arthur Holmes, public Welcome will be extended to the class of ’62, and the usual alumni reception will be held in the even ing in McAllister Hall. Alumni Day this year will be a very successful feature of the Com mencement program, and the Penn State men of today may well feel proud to be able to display their college with all its improvements to the men of '62, who attended a Farmer’s High School. Convention of the Division Operators. The Annual Convention of the Division Operators of the Penn sylvania System met here on Sat urday, May 25th. The formal meeting of the convention was called to order at 10 a. m. in the foyer* of the Auditorium, and Cootioued oo page t) f column 1 STATE COLLEGE, PA., JUNE 8, 1-12 A SUCCESSFUL SEASON Team Wins Majority of Games. Much Credit is Due Coach Man ning and Captain Eberlein. At the end of the first few days of practice, Penn State's piospccts for a winning baseball team were none too bright. Two outfielders, the shortstop, first baseman and one pitcher were the only “S” men remaining from last year’s varsity. But Manager Devor has given us a winning tejm, one which has lived up to the standard set by former Penn State nines. Credit is due to every member of the squad for the bringing about of this result. Especially is credit due to Coach Manning and Captain Eberlein, to gether with the remaining infielders, Blythe, Carson, and Bien, who are playing their last games for their Alma Mater. Coach Manning s well qualified to turn out a winning team. A na tive of Williamsport, he made a name for himself as a pitcher by helping the “Millionaires” win the Tri State Pennant. He then went to the New York Americans and last year helped Beading win the Tri State Pennant. This year, with Dean-elect of the General Faculty, who will deliver the Baccalauri Allentown, he is again one of the leading pitchers of the league. He not only knows the fine points of the game but can teach them to others. His tact and geniality made him popular with players and fans and secured their best efforts and support for a winning team. Penn State is for him. Captain Jack Eberlein will al ways be ranked as one of State’s best leader’s on -the diamond. A clean, fair-minded, enthusiastic player, he has been a big factor in instilling team work and the proper Penn State fighting spirit into his men. “Spi” Blythe was shifted from short to second, where he has been playing the most con sistent game of his career. Carson and Bien were brought from the out- Collegian. field to cover third and short, re spectively. They have proved to be the right men for the places and the left side of the diamond has been well defended. Penn State’s infield will be hard to replace next year. McKibben, Craig, and Crawford make an outfield strong both on de | fense and offense. Theii hits have been responsible for many runs. Success has also been largely due to the consistent pitching of Whit ney and Wardwell, who have a ic tories to their credit over such strong teams as Princeton, A. and M., of Carolina, Washington and Lee, and West Point. Henderson took good care of the receivirg end until he was injured, since which time Vogt has proved to be an able substitute. Sixteen games have been played, eleven of which have been on for eign fields. Four games have been cancelled on account of rain, three of which were to have been played here. Thus far eleven victories have been won. Games are still to be played here with U. of Pittsburgh on Saturday, June 8, and with Lehigh University Tuesday, June 11. We look for victories.

In the class twenty three men graduated. The larger number of these and several cx members will attend the reunion. A class dinner will be held Mon day evening at the Spruce Creek Rod and Gun Club. A few of the prominent men of the class who are expected arc: J. F. Shields and A C. Read, Trustees of the college: E \Y. Hush, President of Ihe Alumni Association; C. E Anil, C. M. Id. Atherton, W. W. liohn, C. C. Hildebrand, C. 11. Hilo, and M. S. McDowell, of the Department of Agricultural Ex- Military Inspection, It is the prevailing opinion of hose closely associated with mil- airy affairs of the college, that the recent inspection will prove to be .one of the most satisfactory of all. Although the report of the in specting officer will not be pub lished until next fall, it is assumed that bis report will be favorable. The dress parade and inspection were very satisfactory—as were also the battalion -drills and at tacks. If the regiment shows up well at Commencement, it will have a very good record for this year, which is especially commendable because of its increased numbers. Return of Library Books. All books should be returned to the Library at once. The annual inventory and the needs of the Summer School call for the re turn of all hooks.
