Captain Mauthe’s Team Shows
Great Speed in Final Home
That the few days rest given the
Penn State football squad after the
Penn game proved beneficial was
shown by the speed and “pepper”
displayed on Saturday in the game
against Villanova College on New
Beaver Field. Although the field
was wet and heavy and rain fell
during the game, nevertheless there
was enough chill in the air to put
the players on edge and make the
game fast. Villanova although out
weighed and outclassed from the
start, put up a clean, hard fought
game. The variation and speed
with which the Blue and White ran
their plays was bewildering, and
touchdowns came thick and fast.
Captain Mauthe and Miller led
the attack, ably assisted by Berry
man, Welty, Wilson, Very, Lamb
and Barron, all of whom carried the
ball for good gains. Mauthe not
only was a good ground gainer but
he also distinguished himself by
kicking eight goals out of eight
trials and by making a beautiful
field goal from the 40-yard mark.
Miller handled punts faultlessly
and ran his team like a pastmaster.
His forward passes were especially
successful, four of them resulting in
Wilson played one of the best
games of his career at left end.
His tackling was swift and sure and
time after time he carried the ball
for long gains. Very, likewise was
a star performer. Lamb, the big
tackle, also proved to be a good
ground gainer and receiver of for
With Saturday’s game, saw the
passing from our field of five varsity
men, who have helped to make up
one of the greatest, if not the great
est of teams that has ever represent
ed the Blue and White on the grid
iron. All are wonderful player
and their names will not soon be
forgotten in the annals of football
history at “Old Penn State”. All
in their last game on Beaver Field,
excepting Engle who was out of
town, played up to their high stan
dard of the past. These men are

Their shoes will be hard to fill when
the 1913 call comes for varsity can
didates to report for practice.
Capt. Spillane, Forst, Pendergast
and Dessendorf played the best
game for Villanova. Of this quar
tette, Captain Spillane, playing his
last year, excelled. The weakness
in the line made it necessary for the
secondary defense to stop the ma
jority of the plays, and Spillane was
so badly used up that he could not

continue in the second half. His
team made but two first downs
from scrimmage both in the first
half and both due to his efforts in
carrying the ball. Forst, likewise
was literally worn out by stopping
the smashing, plunging Blue and
White backs, but he gamely stuck
to the end. Curley played well on
defense but his kicking lost many
yards for his team.
Curley kicked off to Penn State’s
20-yard line and Berryman returned
the kick-off 20 yards. A series of
plays ended in a touchdown by
Very. Mauthe kicked the goal.
Wilson scored the second touch
down on a forward pass from Mil
ler. Mauthe added the goal.
Score 14-0. In the second quarter
Lamb scored on an off tackle play,
then Very and Lamb each made
spectacular catches of forward
passes for touchdowns and Welty
went around right end for the fourth
touchdown of the quarter. Mauthe
kicked three of the goals, the one
kick out being unheeled. Score
In the second half Miller ran 45
yards for a touchdown, Mauthe
scored through the line, Lamb car
ried over a forward pass, Mauthe
kiclred a field goal and later hit the
line for the tenth and last touch
down. He kicked three goals from
touchdowns. Score 71-0. Lineup:

A Mercersburg Victory.
The freshmen lost to Mercers
burg, Saturday, at Mercersburg, in
a clean, well-played game by the
score of 20-0. The game was more
evenly contested than the score
would indicate and according to
Coach Kennedy, of Mercersburg,
his team played its best game of
the year. The members of the
freshman team and their coaches
were given cordial treatment and
good fellowship predominated dur
ing their visit in Mercersburg. In
the game Hunt, Mellen and Max

freshmen, excelled for their respec
Mercersburg secured its first
touchdown by a series of forward
passes in the first half. In the sec
ond half, the freshmen outplayed
their opponents making six first
downs to the Academy’s two.
Maxfield’s excellent individual play
ing was responsible for the only
score of the second half. Maxfield
blocked a forward pass, knocking
the ball into Miller’s arms, who ran
for a touchdown. The freshmen
almost scored when they carried the
ball to Mercersburg’s one-yard line,
but they were here held for downs.

Up to the present time it is
practically impossible to announce
a definite program for Pennsyl
vania Day, which will happen this
year on Friday, November 22,
1912. The eminent executive men
of the state who have received in
vitations, usually have so much on
their minds that they cannot decide
upon their coming until about a day
before the event takes place.
However this much can be said,
the exercises of the day will consist
of the dedication of the new Engi
neering Building; an address by
Hon. John C. Bell, Attorney Gen
eral of Pennsylvania, who will be
introduced by Governor John K.
Tener; a review of the regiment of
1200 college cadets by Major Gen
eral Thomas J. Stewart, Adjutant
General of the National Guard of
Pennsylvania; an inspection of the
buildings, laboratories, shops and
campus; and a game of football be
tween the teams of the sophomore
and freshman classes.
By this varied program it is hop
ed to give visitors a glimpse of the
life of the nineteen [hundred 'stu
dents now enjoying the benefits of
an education provided largely by
the munificence of the state.
The New Engineering Building.
The new “Engineering Unit”,
which has been in process of con
struction this year, will be formally
dedicated on Pennsylvania Day.
The event will be celebrated in a
novel manner under the auspices of
the School of Engineering, and the
feature of the day will be an indus
trial parade, in which all of the
schools of the college have been in
vited to participate. In the parade
there will be perhaps a dozen more
or less elaborate floats which will
depict in a striking manner the work
being done by the school represent
ed. The procession, which will be
gin at 9:30 a. m. on Pennsylvania
Day, will be witnessed by Gover
nor Tener’s party and by college
officials from a reviewing stand
near the Armory.
The formal dedication of the new
unit will take place at ten o’clock
inside the building. A key will be
presented to G. W. Barger ’l3, rep
resenting the student body, by
some prominent engineer who has
not yet been definitely decided upon.
Mr. E. L. Worthen will come to
Penn State in the near future and
assume the position of Assistant
Professor of Agronomy. Mr. Wor
then was graduated at the Univer
sity of Illinois in 1904. He was
connected with Soil Survey work in
the state of Wisconsin. He took
his M. A. at Cornell University.
Mr. Worthen comes to us with a
splendid record, and his experience
in the Agronomy world will prove
to be a very valuable addition to
the Department of Agriculture.
On Friday night, Nov. 8, a
Portorican night was held under the
auspices of the Cosmopolitan club
of the Pennsylvania State College.
The main feature of the night was
a talk on political and educational
questions of Porto Rico, by Mr.
Rodrignez. There was also an
| interesting discussion on socialism.
