Blue and White Goal Line Never in
Danger—Mauthe and Very Play
In a game void of much spectac
ular playing, Penn State won an
easy victory over Gettysburg on
Saturday, on New Beaver Field.
The field was water soaked and
slippery, which fact accounts for
the absence of long runs. Captain
Mauthe and Very featured the game
for Penn State by their all-round
playing, while Clark at center was
strong on defense, his tackling be
ing sure and timely. In the absence
of Miller, Langdon played at quar
ter and although lacking in exper
ience, made an able substitute.
Hoar and Poffinberger were the
best performers for Gettysburg, the
former was especially strong on de
fense while the latter showed good
line plunging ability and was re
sponsible for most of Gettysburg’s
Gettysburg kicked off to State
defending the west goal. Very re
ceived the kick and returned it to
midfield from where Langdon went
around left end for a touchdown
but an infraction of the rules
brought the ball back and Mauthe
kicked to Gettysburg’s ten yard
line. Gettysburg was forced to
punt to Mauthe, who returned the
ball to Gettysburg’s 30 yard line,
from where Very rounded left end,

the immediately sent a long, soaring
punt over Hoar’s head, but the lat
ter made a nice catch and was
downed in his tracks by Engle and
Very. Sheffer’s punt was short,
and line plunges by Mauthe soon
took the ball over the line. The
goal failed. Score 13-0. Soon aft
er Mauthe kicked off, the quarter
ended with the ball in Gettysburg’s
possession on her 35 yard line.
In the second quarter, Hoar was
forced to kick. Mauthe made 18
yards through left tackle. After
gains by Engle, Tobin and Mauthe,
the latter kicked to Hoar on the 1
yard line, Lamb made the tackle.
Wilson blocked Hoar’s attempted
punt from behind the line, but Hoar
recovered, scoring a safety. Score
15-0. During the remainder of the
quarter, Mauthe got away for a 35
yard run and touchdown but State
was caught holding, the ball was
brought back and a fifteen yard
In the second half Mauthe kicked
off to Poffinberger. After an ex
change of punts Scheffer caught a
forward pass from Mauthe but Get
tysburg could not gain. Langdon
returned Hoar’s kick 13 yards.
Line plunges then with Mauthe and
Berryman carrying the ball placed
the pig-skin on Gettysburg’s 5 yard
line, where a magnificent stand by
the Gettysburg line forced State to
surrender the ball on the 1 yard
line. Hoar kicked from behind
his goal line to Langdon on the 35
yard line. Capt. Beegle was injur
ed in making the tackle but after a
rest resumed play. Wilson made
18 yards on a forward pass and
Mauthe added 10. Gettysburg
held and Mauthe then kicked' a
field goal from the 20 yard line.
Score 18-0. The quarter ended

In six rushes Mauthe and Keller

No further scoring was made.
The failure of the completion of
two or three long passes in the re

from increasing her score. The

STATE COLLEGE, PA., OCTOBER 30, 1912
Excellent Acting Characterizes the
First Amateur Show ')f the Year.
Best “Co-ed Show” Ever Staged
Last Saturday evening in the
Auditorium, a rather sn'all audience
had the opportunity to'see one of
the best plays that ha; been given
at the college for .some T time. The
comedy “Cousin Kate” yas enacted
under the auspices of t te Y. W. C.
A„.directed by Mr. C. Downing,
of Thespian fame. Th? play itself
is charming, full of amusing situa
tions, yet compelling serious atten
tion at all times. The cast was pos
sessed of all the ability o effective

Miss Williams, as Mrs. Spencer;
Miss Heuer, as Amy, bar daughter;
Miss Ancona, as Cousir.r Kate; Miss
Guthrie, as Jane; Mr. -Lincoln, as
Bobby; Mr. Deering, as’Heath Des

Mr. Bartlett formed a well balanced
cast in which each character was
The leading roles were taken by
Miss Ancona, as Cous.n Kate, and
Mr. Deering, as Heath Desmond.
The former is well known by her
successes in previous performances
during the past three y ears, and the
fact that in Cousin Katje she. excell

Mr. Deeriug, however,
and captivated ht'is audience. His
acting was the best ever seen at
Penn State, and it is'hoped'that we
shall have the pleasure of seeing
him in many more shows through
out the year.
The audience was very enthusiasm
tic in its appreciation of the play,
and the many who did not attend
have missed something decidedly
worth while. “Cousin Kate” is by
far the most difficult, and yet the
best production that the Y. W. C.
A. has attempted; and if the same
standard is maintained in future
years, success is assured.

Coach Hollenback’s warriors will
leave for one of the most impoitant
games of this year’s schedule.
State supporters on a basis of com
parison to date have good reason to
expect victory, but there is no
doubt in the minds of all that it will
be a hard fought battle from start
to finish. Penn started the season
with championship aspirations.
Three recent defeats have made her
desperate. Add to this the stinging
remembrance of the crushing de
feat the Blue and White administer
ed last year and if is easy to see
that Penn has enough provocation
to make her fight to the last ditch.
Further than this Penn has never
been vic'orious over a Penn State
team coached by “Big Bill”. The
two team have met eighteen times.
Penn was victorious in a'l but two
games. Penn State tied Penn in
1909, lost in 1910 and won her first
victory in the memorable- battle of

OUR ATHLETICS AS
SEEN BY OTHERS
Attitude Taken by Papers is Un
fair to Our College—Time for
All to Act.
With the growth of Penn State as
a college in the past few years, it is
not to be wondered at that athletic
success has followed. One of the
rewards of this success seems to
come in the form of knocks at Penn
State’s code of eligibility and
The following item clipped from
the Lynn (Mass.) Item is a sample
of the absurdities published
“On the other end of the stick is
Penn State, a college where athletics
are supreme and the teams made up
of men practically subsidized be
cause of athletic ability, and whose
schedules are picked so as to hit
the soft spots and leave the men
free to devote the maximum of
time to sports. Their men come
and go, little or no entrance require
ment hindering their entrance and
no one-year transfer rule to prevent
a man from another college playing
for Penn State immediately upon his
changing his resi ience. Every
Cornell man likes to win and hates
to lose, but few would rather be a
Penn State winner than a Cornell
Such articles have in the past
been ignored with the thought that
the real truth would gradually filter
through to the outside world and
indicate our position in athletics.
IhisTinfavora die‘publicity serais' to
be multiplying rather than disap
pearing. The t : me is now come
for every Penn State man, whether
alumnus or undergraduate, to thor
oughly acquaint himself with
athletic conditions and then in the
light of these facts insist on fair
statements in quarters where such
unfair statements have been made.
In the case of our recent game
with Cornell, stories of Penn State's
rowdyism and brutal play found
place in the daily papers. Our
athletic policies stand for no such
conduct as is blamed. A thorough
investigation is being made and
steps have been taken to get at the
real truth of the matter. Our
coaches know of only one rough
play made in the whole game by
our team. Telegrams have been
sent by Giaduate Manager R. H
Smith to the men who officiated
the recent game and at the time of.
our going to press only the follow
ing reply has been received.

Unable to detect unneccessary

Game hard fought and well played.
Reports from other sources all
indicate how utterly false these
criticisms are. Now is the time for
all of us to get busy. The interests
of Penn State have triumphed in
other cases which have meant just
as much to our Alma Mater, and in
