THE STUDENT COUNCIL Body of Upper Classmen Have Played an Important Part in College Circles During the Past Few Years. In view of the fact that so many of the students do not know and appreciate what the organization, known as the Student Council, has accomplished during the last five years, a brief mention of the actions and accomplishments of this body is appropriate at this time. The board consists of fifteen seniors and ten juniors, including the presidents of the two respec tive classes. The object of the Student Council is threefold: 1. To recommend, maintain, and reg ulate the customs and traditions of the college. 2. To take such steps as may be advisable and necessary to support and carry into effect any policy to uphold the name of our college, and, if necessary, to cause the exclusion from college of men who bring discredit to our name; and when requested, to investigate any ap peal made by any student. 3. To promote a better mutual under standing between the faculty and the student body. The Student Council is an or ganization not devoid of power. Of the many vital questions that arise between the faculty and the student body, among other pow ers, the council can summon any student before it and conduct in vestigations. This body of men also has the power to discipline or dismiss any student, subject to the approval of the faculty, if any ap peal be taken. The council decides on the eligibility of contestants in all class scraps and the time of all such scraps. One of the most important ques tions that this board has settled this year was that of the adjust ment of the claim for damages sustained by the town people as the result of bonfires after the football victories over Cornell and Penn. By arbitration the Student Council reduced the damages from $l,OOO to $563.20, and at the same time secured the co-operation of the town people to provide suita ble material for future bonfires. Another wise action was taken when it was made compulsory that every man entering scraps in the future must be physically ex amined in order to eliminate con tagious diseases. By vigilant ef forts on the part of these twenty five men stealing, especially in the armory, has been greatly reduced. The Student Council is a powes for the good interest of the stu dent body, providing of course, the latter put confidence in the council. A few men can do more good than 2,000. To the seniors and juniors who have served on this board, congratulations and praise must be expressed for the many ways they have served the student body, to say nothing of the Alma Mater. Class Day at Penn State College. Class Day exercises at Penn State College will be held Monday, June 10. At 10 a. m. President Harlow will give the farewell address. An address, entitled "Farewell to Old Main", will be delivered by A. L. Tobias. Vice President Hannum will have the "Pipe Oration", which will be followed by the presenta tions in charge of Leßoy Evans. At the conclusion of these exer cises, the class will march to the Carnegie Library where Ivy will be planted by the committee in charge. The "Ivy Oration" will be delivered by Jose Osuna. The annual scrap in the form of a soccer game between the freshmen and sophomores will take place on New Beaver Field at 1:30 p. m. This will be followed by a Track Meet between Penn State and Carnegie Technical Schools. In the evening, the Junior Orator ical contest will be held. This is one of the oldest contests of the College. Two prizes are to be given; the Barlow prize of $5O, and the College prize of $25. Immed iately after this contest there will be held the Philochorean Reception in the College Commons. The committee in charge of the arrangements has put forth every effort to make this day a most en joyable one both for our visitors, and for those of the student body still in College. Interclass Baseball. The juniors broke the winning streak of the sophomores by de feating them Tuesday, May 21, by the score of 6 to 5. The game which lasted but five innings, was the poorest seen on Old Beaver Field, so far, this sea son. Both teams seemed to lack the “pep" that should characterize class games. The score: The sophomores again defeated the freshmen Saturday, May 25, in a hard fought game. Both pitchers were hit rather freely for long drives but the better support af forded the sophomore pitcher was the big factor in the winning of the the game. The score: R. H. E. 1914 8 10 5 1915 4 10 8 Batteries; Nagle —Quirk, 1914; Cope —Lard, 1915. By defeating the sophomores Tuesday, May 28, the freshmen secured a firm grip on the cham pionship. The game was the most interest ing seen so far this season between the class teams. At the end 'of the seventh inning the score stood 6 to 6. The extra inning was a slugging bee between both teams, the freshmen winning by the final score of 10 to 9. The score: R. H. E. 1915 10 10 5 1914 9 11 7 Standing of teams.

The freshmen won the champion ships in the interclass soccer league Thursday afternoon, May 23, by tieing the juniors in the roughest and fastest game of the season. Both teams played at their best and so evenly were they matched that, at the end of the extra five minute period, the score remained unchanged, 1 to 1. The last interclass soccer game was played Monday, May 27, b e tween the juniors and sophomores the sophomores winning by the score 2 to 1. This game was an important one as it settled beyond a doubt the final standing.

The rapid succession of Commen cement festivities does not permit of much reflection on the central idea of the occasion—the stepping into the working world of a body of young men and women. One phase of the subject should cause us to hesitate at least long enough to place it well in the fore front of our minds never to be erad icated —the relation of the alumnus to his Alma Mater. The value we place on Penn State’s contribution to our character and ability will be measured by our de votion and service to her as Alumni. Our Alma Mater has many problems to be solved and no one is better qualified to know and appreciate these problems and to help find the answer than the alumnus. Let us, Alumni of the class of 19- 12, fall in with the organized effort of the Alumni Association to make Penn State the biggest, best balanc ed service rendering educational in stitution of it’s type in the land. Captain Fry Will be Stationed at Portland, Oregon. A reception and smoker was recently given at ,he President’s house in honor of Capt. Hall by the officers club at which Capt. Edgar A. Fry, the retiring commandant, was presented with a large loving cup by the cadet officers. Capt. Fry, who has been with us for the past three years, has been detailed with the 10th U. S. Infantry which has just returned from foreign service and will be stationed at Portland Oregon. We all wish the “Hep” success, and we express our appreciation for the work that he has done with the Cadet Regiment. Big Concert Tonight. SUMMARY OF TRACK Varsity Track Team Has Most Suc cessful Season. Two Local Rec ords Broken. Final Meet Next Monday. Penn State’s wonderful 1912 com bination of path men, coached by “Pop” Golden and “Prof" Wright, worked throughout the entire season like a well oiled machine. The team was well balanced; its mem bers showing excellent form both individually and as a team. The Blue and White team over whelmingly defeated Colgate and Dickinson in dual meets and admin istered to the former, the worst de feat it has received in years. In the Penn Relays, State ran'behind Virginia University and Carlisle and ahead of Swarthmore, McGill University and Lafayette. A sweeping victory was the result of the team’s visit to Harrisburg where the Pennsylvania Intercollegiates were held. The ’coic-i; of seven other colleges were lowered and Penn State's nearest' competitor, Carlisle, was shy of victory by 24 points. State was represented in the Intercollegiate championships at Philadelphia, by a team of five men which made a favorable show ing but failed to score. It is interesting to note that two Penn State records were broken during the present year,' both new marks being made in the Dickin son meet. Maybee T 3, who former ly held the pole vaulting reqord of 11 feet 2 1-4 inches jointly with Hoskins T 2, established a new mark by clearing the bar at a height of 11 feet 6 inches. Piner T 5 low ered the time of the old local 220 yard dash record of 221-5 seconds by 1-5 of a second. The season’s track summary, ex clusive of the Carnegie Tech meet which will be held on New Beaver Field next Monday follows: April 27 —Penn State third in Penn Relays at Philadelphia, Pa. May 11 —Penn State 63 1-2 Col gate 40 1-2, at Hamilton, N. Y. May 18 —Penn State first in Penn sylvania Intercollegiates, at Harris burg. May 25—Penn State 90 1-2 Dick inson 21 1-2, at State College. June I—Penn1 —Penn State represented in Intercollegiates,at Philadelphia. Baseball Summary. Interclass baseball this season was fairly successful in spite of the fact that varsity baseball, soccer, and track meets affected greatly the attendance at many of the games. Credit must be given the fresh man team for the prominent part that they took in the contest throughout the season. No less can be said of the sophomore team for it was due to this team that the interest in class league did noc abate until the close of the season. The junior team was handicapped by having no regular pitchers and this, added to the fact that spring football practice interfered with the work of some of their men, largely explains their poor showing Soccer Summary. The spirit in which the players entered into the soccer games this season speaks well for its growing popularity here. Captain Dutemple’s team, took the lead from the beginning, which lead they easily maintained until the close of the season, finishing with a record of three games won and one tied. • The juniors and sophomores also had good teams as is shown by the narrow margins on which all the games were won or lost. These three teams will doubtless furnish a rich source of material from which to draw for our! varsity team next fall.
