Ithacans Administered Bad Defeat
but Crossed Penn State’s Goal
Line—Cornell Gained by the Use
of the Forward Pass,
In the annual football game be
tween Cornell and Penn State at
Ithaca, N. Y., last Saturday, the
former team was literally swept off
its feet by the Mount Nittany Lions
who piled up 29 points to their op
ponents’ 6 in four 15 minute per
iods. The game was characterized
by many forward passes and a
minimum of fumbling. Penn State
played its usual good game while
the "Big Red” team which is a
member of the “Big Six” played by
far its best game of the present sea-
A few minutes after play had be
gun Cornell punted to State; Miller
touched the ball after which it roll
ed for a short distance and was then
recovered by a Cornellian. Excel
lent defensive work and forward
passes by our antagonists then
brought the ball to our two yard
line from where it was carried
across the goal line by Taber, the
plucky Cornell quarterback. Ihis
ended Cornell’s scoring.
Penn State now took hold of the
game and completely outclassed
Cornell in the remainder of the con
test. Good playing forced the ball
to our opponents 15 yard line where
Mauthe kicked a eoal from place
ment. On the kick-off following,
Berryman belittled the Cornell elev
en by catching the ball and running
75 yards for a touchdown through
the entire Cornell line. Beautiful
interference by the Penn State men,
especially by Clark, who interferred
•with Taber made this long run pos
sible. ' Very scored Penn State's
second touchdown after receiving a
forward pass over the goal line.
Captain Mauthe continued the point
gaining by rushing the ball across
the line for a third touchdown.
The final touchdown came in the
last period when Wilson received a
forward pass over the goal line.
All the Penn State players are in
prime condition with the exception
of Clark and Whitney, who sustain
ed slight injuries during the past

STATE COLLEGE, PA.,
Y. W. C. A. PLAY
The Comedy, “Cousii Kate” to be
Given as the Annual «Co-ed
Show” in Auditorium Saturday
On Saturday evening, at 8:15 in
the Auditorium, the Young Wo
man’s Christian Association of the
college will present its annual play.
Every effort has been put forth to
make this year’s production a real
success, and one great step toward
that end has been done in securing,
as coach, Mr. C. L. Downing, of
Philadelphia. Mr. Downing is well
known in State College in connec
tion with the Thespians, whose pro
ductions for the last four years have
been staged by him.
By special arrangement with Mr.
Charles Frohman, the committee in
charge has procured' the privilege
of presenting the play, “Cousin
Kate”, in which Miss Barrymore
was so successful a few years ago.
This will be its first production by
amateurs, but the cast which has
been selected will present a delight
ful performance of this charming
little play. ;
Miss Williams, as Mrs. Spencer,
gives a most laughab e representa
tion of a tactless mother, very much
interested in her daughter’s coming
As the daughter, 'Amy, Miss
Heuer is a charming personification
of sweetness and mis-directed con
In the part of Cousin Kate, Miss
Ancona, in all her changing moods
of coquetry and light
ness and sincerity, is so truly
charming that you are sure to fol
low with breathless interest her
winding course through the play.
Miss Guthrie, as Jane, the maid,
exhibits a quaintness of speech and
manner that will captivate you at
Mr. Lincoln, as Bobby, and Wm.
Hughes, as Mr. Bartlett, both play
their parts with keen insight into
the characters. Mr. Deering will
exhibit his experience (stage ex
periece, of course), as the lover and
artist, Heath Desmond.
The opportunity is now given to
Penn State men to see a standard
modem comedy, enacted under
competent coaching by a sterling
amateur cast; and a large audience
is all that is necessary to make the
play a rousing success. Tickets
will be on sale in the Business Office
at seven o’clock Wednesday, Thurs
day, and Friday nights.
Our Glee Club in Bellefonte,
If satisfactory arrangements can
be made, the glee club will give a
concert in Bellefonte in the near
future under the auspices of the
Bellefonte Y. M. C. A. The full

hundred, will participate, and a
special train will be run on the

of the concert will be the same as

The freshman football team start
ed their season with a rush Saturday
afternoon by defeating the Lock
Haven Normal School by the score
of 35 to 0.
Contrary to expectations, Lock
Haven fell an easy victim to the
freshmen, who appeared to gain al
most at will through the line and by
end runs. The Normal School
boys, at times, played well, but at
critical places were unable to check
the determined freshman team.
Lock Haven kicked off. James
received the ball and carried it back
to mid-field. By centre plunges
and a long end run by James the
ball was soon on Lock Haven’s 1
yard line. A formation through
center enabled Devine to score the
The second touchdown came as a
result of long runs around end by
Craig and Devine and a twenty yard
gain through center by Wood, who
carried the ball over for the second
Towards the end of the game
Lock Haven appeared to grow
stronger. At the beginning of the
final quarter 1916 was forced to
kick. The Normal team by a per
fect forward pass and good inter
ference was checked on the fresh
man’s 15 yard line. .The visitors
after four unsuccessful line plunges
lost the ball. The ball, kicked to
midfield, was soon again in ‘l6’s
possession, when a forward pass to
Watson, gains by Krumrine and
Craig around end, and a well exe
cuted pass to Craig, took the pig
skin over for the final count. Score

TWO STATE VISITORS
Messers Graham and Hoban Visit
College—lnteresting Lecture Ap
preciated by 1400 People.
This week we have had with us
at the college Messrs. George Gra
ham and W. C. Hoban, sporting ed
itor and cartoonist, respectively, of
Philadelphia North American.
Their visit has become an annual
event, and in an early issue of the
North American there will appear
an article on the college, the subject
matter of which has been secured
during their stay in town. This
publication has always been noted
for its fairness and squareness in
treating matters brought to its atten
tion, and Penn State students espec
ially should appreciate this quality.
The "North American” has al
ways been willing to publish' news
of our college,—its advantages, its
needs, and matters of interest per
taining to the institution. This is
perhaps especially true in the
sporting news, and a Penn State
athletic victory gets the prominence
which it deserves.
About 1400 students met in the
Auditorium Monday evening and
were addressed by both Mr. Gra
ham and Mr. Hoban. As an open
ing number, the re-organized Ham
bone Quartette, “bigger and better
than ever, etc”, composed of
Messrs. Robinson, Kiester, Leyden,
and Vale sang a very pleasing selec
tion and were twice heartily encor
In the past we have heard many
scientificJectures and discussiono de
livered hgre.at college, but rarely
have we naamffpportunity to listen
to anyone so intensely interesting as
Mr. Graham in his so-called “social
chat from one sportsman to an
army of sportsmen". His subject
was " The Nerve That Wins in
Sport." He showed that, to excel
in sports, one must have physical
nerve, mental nerve and intelligence.
He showed that these principles
may be applied to life in general as
well as to athletics.
Mr. Hoban gave a very amusing
illustrated talk on the foot-ball ca
reer of “Bill” Hollenback. His
cartoons were drawn before the
audience in the shortest possible
time, and were heartily appreciated.
Both Mr. Graham and Mr. Hoban
expressed the greatest interest in
Penn State and in the welcome ac
corded them here; and in return the
student body has shown great en
thusiasm and interest during their
stay. It is to be hoped that their
visits to State College will not be
No Decision Given,
Graduate Manager R. H. Smith
returned Monday from New Yoik
City, where he had attended a
meeting of the Inter-Collegiate
Wrestling Association. No decision
was reached as to the admission
of Penn State into the Association.
Two votes were cast for the admis
sion and one against, while the oth
er two withheld their decision until
they could receive instructions from
Juniors and Sophomores,
Seven new members will be add

including two foresters, will be

while three men from the junior
