The Y. M. C. A. Reception.
Following its usual custom, the
Y. M. C. A. of this college tendered
a reception to the incoming fresh
men last Friday evening. As the
class of 1916 had assumed such a
magnitude, and as the number of
the guests promised to be so
large, the grounds before the
Ladies’ Cottage were prepared to
serve as a natural reception parlor.
The illumination was accomplished
by chains of electric lights and
Japanese lanterns which were sus
pended between trees. Guests were
received by President and Mrs.
Sparks, Mr. Buchman, and Mr. R.
E. Atkinson.
New acquaintanceship was pro
gressing rapidly when the Penn
State musical organizations added
even more harmony to the gather
ing. The Glee Club, under the
direction of Mr. Clarence Robinson,
very admirably sang: —The Sword
of Ferrara, Bullard; Outcasts, Rob
inson; The Alma Mater, arranged by
Mr. C. Robinson.
The Band entertained its hearers
nth: —The American Medly, and A
■pring Maid Pot-pourri.
In reference to refreshments the
V. M. C. A. committee has institut
ed a novel way of serving them.
Those in charge were situated on
the porch of the cottage from
where they very deftly filled cones

The entire reception may be
characterized as having been a
pleasant success, a congenial at
mosphere having prevailed through
out. New acquaintances were
made, and old ones repaired.

Dr. Stecker Attends Important
Dr. Stecker spent the summer
vacation in Paris attending Mathe
matical lectures. The latter part
of August, he went to Cambridge,
England, to take part in the sessions
of the International Congress of
Mathematicians, which is held every
four years. Membership in this
congress isa rare honor.
The McCleary Fund,
As is generally known, “Bull”
McCleary, who had been expected
to return to the college to assist
Coach Hollenback, has accepted
the position of Director of Athletics
at the Missouri School of Mines,
Rolla, Mo. Dick Harlow, T 2, and
tackle on the 1909, TO and ’ll
teams has been chosen as Mc-
Cleary’s successor.
In the matter of compensation
for McCleary the Athletic Associa
tion was able to offer only $300.00.
To meet the salary of $lOOO.OO ask
ed by McCleary for his services,
the student Dody voted to raise a
fund of $700.00. While the col
lection of the fund was in progress
last spring, the news was received
that “Bull” had accepted a good
proposition at Missouri and con
sequently the collection of the fund
ceased with a total amount collect
ed of $465.55.
When the possibility of Harlow’s
filling McCleary’s place became
known many contributors to the
McCleary fund offered to transfer
their contributions to Harlow.
While it is assumed that all contrij
butors are willing to do the same
thing it is desirable that definite
knowledge of this be secured at
The Athletic Association will pay
Harlow from it’s own funds the
$300.00 offered to McCleary. With
the McCleary fund it would make
Harlow’s compensation total-$765.-
55, which figure is over $250.00 less
than an offer received by Harlow to
serve as Director of Athletics in a
western school but which was re
jected that he might return to be of
service to his Alma Mater.
The fund is now held in trust by
the Graduate Manager. After Oct.
it will be assumed that all contribu
tors not heard from to the contrary
by that date desire their con
tributions diverted to Harlow and
the balance the fund will be credited
to Harlow’s coaching account.

Freshman-Sophomore Game.
The Student Board of Columbia
University recommended that the
class of 1914 as a whole be deprived
of all its social functions during its
Junior year. The Sophomore class
after a recent festivity had formed a
parade and entered the halls of the
Barnard Dormitories. It was at
first thought advisable to expel] the
whole class, but finally it was
deemed best to impose a penalty.
