Y. M. C. A. Will Hold Series of
Meetings February 4-9. Promi
nent Speakers to Take Part.
"Service" is the keynote of the
campaign to be held here at State
during the first week of the second
semester, Feb. 4-9. Experts on
cliffelent lines of Christian and
social service will be here to discuss
ways and means by which college
men in cities, towns, mining and
construction camps and country
communities can help in this pro-
cess of building a better civilization
The true valuation of any man's
life will be based on the extent to
which he has served humanity.
Psychologists tell us also that a
man's habits arc pretty well set by
the time he leaves college. If these
things are true, it. makes some dif
teience as to what attitude a man
takes to these questions on leaving
There is something for every
man to do. This campaign will af
ford a rare opportunity to heat the
whole field presented, and for each
than to discover where his contribd
tion can be made. The principles
which shuukl guide a man in choos
ing his life work will also be dis
cussed, and the claims of some of
the different fields of service pre
The following are some of the

Zen, who was so well liked here two
years ago; E. T. Colton, of New

get their opinions. Personal inter
views can be arranged through J.
E. Platt at the Y. M. C. A. room.

The Soccer Situation
The fact that Penn State has
been able to maintain at least a
small schedule of intercollegiate
games in soccer has been largely
responsible for the growing interest
in the sport here. It is not general
ly known, however, that soccer is
not self supporting, and that it has
only been possible to put a team in
to intercollegiate competition by the
continued support of a prominent
alumnus of the college. The guar
antees we were able to receive from
the games played last season and
the present season were not suffici
ently large enough to cover the ex
penses of the team. Mr. J. G.
White, of the class of 'B2 who is
intensely interested in the develop
ment of soccer as one of our sports
at State College very generously
contributed a check for $lOO.OO for
each of the seasons Just past, mak
ing the trips possible.
Coming Basket Ball Gaines
Captain Hartz's quintette leaves
town this afternoon foi a three
game western trip which includes
games with Westinghouse, Pitt and
Carnegie Tech. Penn State has
never before scheduled any of these
teams in basket ball. Immediately
following the game tomorrow night
with the Westinghouse Club at 501
Pennwood Avenue, Wilkinsburg,
the basket ball teams, the Penn
State Alumni and friends pi the
college will be entertained with an
informal dance and reception. The
entertainment is in charge of a com
mittee chosen from the Penn State
Alumni connected with the West
inghouse interests. The Univer
sity of Pittsburgh team, which will
be played Friday night at the
Lees' Gymnasium, is light, one of
its guards weighing but 115 pounds.
The Pitt five is fast and decisively
defeated Penn dining Christmas
week. The Carnegie Tech team
will be State's opponents on Satur
Manager l3evan, eight players
and possibly a coach will take the
trip. The men most likely to make
the flip are Hartz, Park, Binder,
Craig, Hay, Walton, Wilson and
It is expected that much interest
will be taken in the Lehigh game
here next Wednesday night. Penn
State closed its season last year in
South Bethlehem by losing to
Lehigh by the close score of 35 to
33. Lehigh has made an excellent
showing thus far this winter and a
hard game is anticipated. Re
membei the Lehigh game will be
played next Wednesday night in
the Armory and the admission will
be only fifteen cents. The date of
Carnegie Tech game, whin will al
so be played in the Armory, is
Jan. 25.

"the first citizen of Chicago", will
be at the college over next Sunday,
Jan. 19th. Her work there as
founder and head president of the
Hull House, along wiih her books
have won hei recognition as an
authority wherever settlement work
is discussed the world over. In the
Progressive political movements of
the country, her influence has also
been felt and is today being ex
tended by her articles in several of
the magazines. She will have a
message for State College.
On Saturday evening she will
lecture under the auspices of the Y.
M. C. A., and on Sunday she will
speak at chapel and at the Y. M. C.

Editor of the Pittsburgh Gazette
Times, remarked at the c'ose of the
game that Penn State's team was
fast and played clean bill. Had
dow officiated the game in a capa
ble manner and to the satisfaction
of all. 'The floor proved a little
slippery for both teams, but especi
ally so for the visiting team which
had heretofore played most of its
games on rougher floors.' Captain
Hartz's excellent all-around playing,
Park's work under the basket, Bind
er's floor work, Unger's work during
the few minutes he played, Kum
mer's foul shooting for the visitors,
and the aggressiveness of Captain
Campbell for the Collegians, featur
ed the opening basket ball game in
State College. Park was easily the
best shot of the evening scoring
eight goals from field. Kummer
for the visitors, excelled in toul
shooting making 14 goals out 43' 17

Dr. Holmes Will Lecture
On Friday evening January 17th
in the Auditorium at 8 o'clock, Dr•
Holmes will deliver a lecture on
"How Character is Bred." In his
dissertation Dean Holmes will to a
large extent dwell upon the new
and fascinating subject of eugenics.
Eugenics has been defined as the
art of choosing a life partner. In
his discussion he will touch upon
the real significance of this broad
and vital subject, and he will ex
plain what the term really signifies.
Dr. Holmes will include in his
lecture the history and the study of
character, quoting both Emerson
and Browning. He will give a
sociological definition of character,
and he will illustrate the value of
character as regards the earning
power of an individual. The law of
similarity working through hered
ity will be illustrated by means of
feeble-mindedness, and moral im
becility. The brighter side of the
same law will he centered in a con
sideration of . the Kallickak family
and the posterity of Jonathan
Modern eugenics was conceived
in 1904 by Sir Edward Galton. In
1912 an International Conference
met in London, composed of world
famous physicians and scientists
interested in the new theoretical
science of eugenics.
It is safe to Fay that eugenics is
in the air. One may hear the word
whispered nearly everywhere, but
usually not very decisive discus
sion follows because the human
intellect has not been enlightened
enough concerning it Now is your
opportunity, come and hear one
who knows. .

Easter Time. Will be a Big
Advertisement for Penn State
It is now an assured fact that the
Penn State glee club is to have the
opportunity of the most extensive
trip even undertaken by a college
organization. It is due chiefly to
the efforts and influence of Mr. H.
G. Hollistcr 'll that the Santa Fe
Railroad has offered the club a trip
from Chicago to the Pacific coast
and return. The trip had been
planned for Christmas vacation,
but the technicalities of an Inter
state Commerce Commission ruling
made a postponement necessary.
As matters now stand, the trip will
include fifteen days at Easter time,
and about forty members of the
glee club will leave State College
for Chicago shortly before the

money to pay travelling expenses

several other friends of the college
