Penn Slate Quintette Will Open
Season at Home This Evening
With Pittsburgh Collegians as
Initial Opponents —Many Class
Players Advanced to Varsity
Everybody should be in the Ar
mory tonight to see Captain Hartz's
team meet Dick Guy's Pittsburgh
Collegians in the opening basket
ball game of the season. The
Pittsburgh Five has always played
a clean, interesting game here and
is one of the leading attractions of
our basket ball schedule. Last
winter the game between tonight's
opponents resulted in a 37 to 17
victory for the Blue and White
team. The Penn State line-up for
to-night is a little uncertain but the
game will probably start with Cap
tain Hartz 'l3 at center, Bindei 'l4
and Park 'l5 at forwards and Craig
'l4 and Hay 'l5 at guards.
The basket ball training table is
composed of fifteen men—Captain
Hartz, Craig, Binder, Savery, Metz
gel, Smith, Gockley, Park, Wilson,
Hay, Walton, Willard, Davidson,
Tinge' and Jeffrey. Ole Ski Jarscn,
who catered for the Penn State
football eleven is acting in the same
capacity for the basket ball team.
All the training table men and a
tew others have been coached daily
since the earlier part of Decembei
by Coaches Lewis and Hacldow.
Five, or one third of the entire var
sity basket ball squad, are made up
ni last.! , ear's class hasket hall play-
Ot these Binder has shown up
best. The bSb men remaining in
college ate Hartz, Craig, Mauthe
and Ex-captain Shore but sickness
will prevent the latter from partici
pating in this year's games. Shore
was a popular member of last
year's team, played excellent ball
and his services this year will be
missed. All the other candidates '
for the team were members of last
year's squad with the exception
of the four freshmen, Ungei, Wil
laid, Davidson and Jeffiey.
This yea' may be teimed the
"Experimental" yew as fat as bas
ket ball is concerned at this institu
tion as the interest shown at the!
games will prophesy the future
of the indoor fioor game
here. Last year the student body
voted to drop basket ball back to
the Minor Sports' Department thus
requiring it to be self-supporting.
The nominal sum of fifteen cents
which will be the admission fee for
tonight's game should prevent no
one from attending. This charge is
made not for the purpose of secur
ing a profit but merely to meet ex
penses and the admission to future
home games will be determined
largely by tonight's attendance. So
everybody out to cheer for Penn
Manager Bevan experienced some
difficulty in arranging his schedule.
Attempts were made to secure
games at home with some of the
prominent Eastern teams but the
Intercollegiate League schedule in
teiferred. Penn State will play
eleven games in all, fivr
and six on foreign floors.

The influence of this Association
in college athletics is shown by its
rapid development. At the Decem
ber. meeting a number of additional
colleges were accepted into mem
bei ship, biirging the enrollment to
over 105, and representing colleges
from every section of the United
Stares the Association cannot
bind its members to any action it
may take but can only bring its in

N ersity Professor Dudley took as
hts cubiect the "The Proper Control
of College Athletics - , in ;]rich he
encleavozecl to show that the ideal
in amateur spert could only be
reached through .baculty control.
Meylan took the subject of
"Athletic Training" and dealt with
its history from the beginning of
athletics to the present time.
Reports from the Committees on
the various branches of sport con
tained nothing particularly new.
The report of Dr. H. L. Williams,
University of Wisconsin, of the
Football Rules Committee was very
interesting in that it showed almost
universal satisfaction with the rules
as used duting the past year.
Dr. J. A. Babbitt, Chairman of the
Committee on Soccer football re
ports a very healthy growth of
interest in this game.
Probably one of the most valu
able reports was made by Professor
Nicholson, Secretary of the
Association giving the result
of the questionnaire which had
been submitted to all colleges
in the country covering eligibility
rules, methods of finance and
methods of training and maintain
ing the physical condition of teams.
A detailed copy of this report is to
be printed and submitted to all the
colleges, which will be very valu
able in that it will show the eligi
bility rules throughout the country

trend the
Penn State's Xmas in Pittsburgh.
On Saturday night Dec. 23 in the
Dutch Room of the Fort Pitt Hotel
there was a gathering of Penn State
alumni and students of the Pitts
burgh district which was unpreced
ented. Many prospective students
were present and also s isitors
from the University of Michi
gan, University of Chicago, and
University of Pittsburgh. In all
about seventy five took part in the
festivities. "Eats" and "snok-.!s"
were alike enjoyed by all.
During the early part of the even
ing "Pop" Golden and Jimmie
Keister with "Professor" Weber at
the piano broke in with some music,
Then the whole bunch joined in and
the old place shook at times. Ar
hur, President of the Pittsburgh
Club presided. Graduate Manager
Ray Smith was the first speaker,
Ray had just returned from the
Annual Collegiate Athletic Conven
tion in New York He said that
the tendency was now very strong
among all colleges to put into
effect the three year residence rule
which debars freshmen from play
ing on all varsity teams. In view
of this glowing tendency would it
not be advisable for the students
and alumni of Penn State to give
this matter very serious attention in
the near future ? The time has
come when we must think of it very
seriously as it is the general con
sensus of opinion among athletic
authorities that that is the reason
our college does not receive univer
sal recognition throughout the East.
Smith then explained the delay in
securing Bill Hollenback as coach
fociicAL - yea - 1. - 5. Or I J AC."
fact that Hollenback desires to en
ter into some permanent business,
he would have signed his c mtract
at Thanksgivmg time in Pittsburgh.
Bill is at present considering some
propositions which may necessitate
his giving up coaching altogether,
hence the delay. However, Man
age! Smith will know definitely very
soon, and we can rest assured that
if Bill coaches at all, it will be here
at Penn State.
Pop Golden next spoke. Pre
viously Pop had been making the
night hideous with his vocal efforts,
but he subsided long enough to dis
course on the old State "spirit" and
incidentally expressed his opinion
oil the three year rule which he
evidently does not favor for Penn
Jim Coibett, an old State man
who never misses a Penn State
function unless he is in the hospital ,
gave the undergraduates an idea of
how much some of the old men
think of our college. Lester Mauthe
spoke briefly of next year's football
prospects which he declared to be
very good. "Burly" Watson 'll,
our star 1910 center, spoke of all
branches of sport, particularly
wrestling. Ben Bart, the heart and
soul of the Pittsburgh Alumni Asso
ciation, told what the associa
tion was doing and intended to do
in the future. John Clarke "told"
a sweet but short "tale". Mal Ross
another "old" man who is still
young gave us an exhibition of
fancy dancing that would have put
to shame any professional toe danc
er in the business. Other promi
ment alumni spoke, and the even
ing ended with singing and piano
selections. It was indeed a merry
and at the same time serious affair
and was a huge success

817 Interested Persons Attend Lec-
tures. The Visitors Resolve to
Help Penn State in Coming Meet-
ing of the Legislature
All who attended the course of
lectures presented here during the
week from December 26 to January
2 are convinced that this Seventh
Annual "Farmer's Week" was the
most successful of all that have
been held. Besides the 137 regular
short course men, there were
registered 680 men from all parts of
this state; and instructive lectures
were delivered before them by the
best of agricultural authorities.
Especially noticeable this year
was the interest and enthusiasm
toward the wellfare of the college
shown by the visitors.
Taking into their discussion the
financial requirements, the lack of
agricultural investigations, the
spreading of information to the
farmers of the state and the fact
that the industries of the state could
be served to a much greater degree,
this assemblage in attendance at the
Seventh Annual Farmers Week
pleged itself, individually and col
lectively, to urge our several
representatives to activelly support
the entire budget which is being
submitted to the legislature by the
trustees of the Pennsylvania State
Thespian Trials

chorus of year's__ Thespian
production will be held Thursday,
Friday and Saturday, the 16th,
17Th, and 18th of January. These
trials are open to men of all classes
and as former experience in this
line of work is by no means neces
sary it is hoped that a goodly num
ber will respond to the call. Those
intending to compete for positions
in the cast may obtain copies of the
play from A. M. Hooven at the S.
A. E. House on or after Saturday,
Jan. 11. The exact time and place
of these trials will be announced
All applicants for the position of
pianist in the Thespian orchestra

the Nittany Inn, Saturday Janu
ary 11th at 1:30 o'clock.
