PENN STATE 30
Red and Black learn Weakened as
Game Progressed. Captain Mau
the and Miller Make Spectacular
Contrary to expectations, the
strong Penn State eleven completely
outplayed the Washington and
Jefferson team in all departments of
the game last Saturday on New
Beaver Field before a crowd of
5000 persons. A delegation of
loyal W. and J. rooters occupying a
section in the lower bleachers sup
ported their team throughout the
Shortly after the kick-off, Miller
ran the ball from our own 33 yard
line to the opponent's 33 yard line.
Here the W and J line proved in
vincible. Captain Mauthe then
choose to attempt a goal from
'placement which proved successful
resulting in die first score of the
game. W and J kicked to State
and by a series of end runs and line
plunges the ball was forced to the
opponent’s goal line but dropped
from Mauthe’s hands at the critical
moment. State soon gained pos
session of the ball and Mauthe kick
ed a second field goal, from the 15
yard line. A third goal from place
ment by Mauthe on the 30 yard
line ended the scoring of the first
half. Just previous to the closing
of the first half Miller made a
beautiful run of 41 yards around
right end. The whistle blew with
the ball in State’s possession
The W arid J kick-off at the open-'
ing of the second half was recover
ed by Mauthe on our goal line,
who, with splendid interference
made a spectacular 94 yard run to
the W and J six yard line. Line
plunges by Berryman and Mauthe
then proved valueless in gaining
ground but a forward pass by Miller
to Very who was waiting across the
goal line resulted in the first touch
down. The second touchdown
came after W and J had fumbled.
Very kicked 28 yards to Goodwin
who was downed by Lamb. Lamb
tackled hard; Goodwin fumbled and
Miller recovered the ball and ran
for a touchdown. The final score
came in the last quarter after a
series of successful plays terminat
ing with a 30 yard run by Very,

THE COMING GAME
The Cornell Team Outweighs the
Penn State Eleven Twenty
Pounds to the Man—A Hard Game
An easy game with Cornell next
Saturday must not be expected as
“The Big Red” team has not shown
her real strength to date. Last
Saturday Captain Butler and Eyrich,
with very slight injuries, were kept
out of the game in order to be in
prime condition for the State game.
O’Conner, another of Cornell’s
regulars, played but a few minutes
in the New York University game.
The Cornell line from end to end
consists of men, all of whom are
over six feet tall and average 195
pounds. The men in the backfield

Dr. Seerley at the College,
Expectations were fully realized
when the students became acquaint
ed with Dr. Seerley, of Springfield,
Mass, last Sunday. He was greeted
by a large, eager audience at each
meeting, and although many good
men have been heard at Penn State,
Dr. Seerley has been branded as
one of the best. His treatment of
the social problem has never been
In his addresses throughout the
day, especially in the evening meet
ing, he won the admiration and the
heart of every man by his sincere
and frank manner. The difficult
problems of life have never been
more intelligently, truthfully, or
forcefully solved. Being a physi
cian, Dr. Seerley could portray life
from that view point, and, as a re
sult, much useful and needful ad
vice was gained.
Besides speaking at various
group meetings, at the Y. M. C. A,
meeting, and holding private con
ferences, Dr. Seerley addressed the
freshmen and upperclassmen.
Everyone who was privileged to
hear him, extends heartiest thanks
to him and to those who induced
him to come, and hopes for a re
turn visit soon.
The Step Taken by the Alumni.
Committees are being appointed
in each county to personally inter
view all candidates for the Legisla
ture and set forth the necessity of
Penn State’s having a larger appro
priation this year. All alumni hav
ing influence with candidates are
urged to get in touch with the
Alumni Secretary at once.
The student body is also urged
to help in this campaign. Less
than three weeks now remain in
which to help our Alma Mater out
of a serious state of affairs. The
names of all candidates can be se
cured from room 120 Main and can
be sent home at once with the
earnest plea for parental interviews

STATE COLLEGE, PA., OCTOBER 16, 1912
After Four Years of Varsity Serv
ice, Harlow is Appointed'Graduate
Coach of Football Team.
When the loss of our former
Graduate Coach “Bull” McCleary
became known, speculations as to
his successor began. Richard C.
Harlow, both on account of his
knowledge of the game and of his
service to this institution as a foot
ball player, was the natural choice.
Harlow’s career as a football
player has been little short of phe
nominal. Entering the Episcopal
Academy of Philadelphia in the
fall of 1907 he was at once put at
tackle on the regular team. At the
close of the season he was unani
mously accorded a position as
tackle on the All-Scholastic of
Dick entered Penn State in the
fall of 1908 in a crippled condition
as a result of a broken ankle. In
spite of this handicap, he succeed
ed in making the freshman football
team, was chosen captain, and on
account of the ability he displayed
during the class game, was taken to
Pitt that fall and there got his first
experience at varsity service.
During his sophomore year Dick
gained a regular berth on “Bill”
Hollenback’s great undefeated
During his last two years of
service Dick played in every game
of importance, and each year was
put in the lineup c£
vania football team.
At the close of the season last
year Harlow was considered by
many of the football critics of the
east to be the best tackle in
America and hence, in several in
stances, was put on the All-Ameri
A clean, hard, aggressive player
at all times, with the ability to put
into play the knowledge gained
through experience and instruction,
Harlow proved to be a tower of
strength in the game. In his new
capacity as coach he appears equal
ly capable. Few men are better
qualified, and whatever be the out
come, he has with him the good
wishes of the entire student body
of Penn State.
