PENN STATE VOLUME 9 NUMBER 17 THE SEVENTH STRAIGHT VICTORY Penn State Experiences Difficulty in Defeating Allegheny. Binder Plays an Exceptionally Efficient Offensive Game. Final Score 21 to 17. The Allegheny College basket ball five met its second defeat of the season on the Armory floor last Saturday night in a close and excit ing game. Allegheny had pre viously lost only to the Oberlin team in an extra five-minute period game. In Saturday's contest, Penn State made no substitutions, and for Allegheny. Thomas was replaced by Ramsey after the former had been disqualified for four personal fouls. Allegheny failed to secure a field goal during the first half, but her captain shot five fouls, while Penn State ended the half with nine points to her credit. Several times the students were wild with en thusiasm and rose to their feet. The cheering was excellent but more care should be exercised in passing remarks when a member of an opposing team is shooting fouls. Between halves there was a dispute concerning the interpretation of the rules and Penn State agreed to fol low Allegheny's wishes. This re sulted in the disqualification of Thomas in the second half for four personal fouls. Captain Hartz started the point scoring with a field goal early in - We game, - and fiorn then on he and Binder did the scoring for the locals until Mauthe caged the ball near the close of the game. "Billy" Binder, the little forward, was everywhere on the floor and scored five goals from field in addition to five foul goals. Hay excelled in intercepting the opponent's passes. Captain Hartz played a hard and consistent game against Captain Hawk of Allegheny while Nichols, one of the forwards for the Mead ville Collegians played a fast game securing three field goals. The victory over Allegheny was well earned and gives Penn State increased prestige as Allegheny is rated high in basketball circles.

Ray Drafts a Bill to Al- low Students to Vote On every November election day, probably no wish is more intense with the student, than to cast his ballot one way or another. A com paratively small number of men are able to satisfy this desire; but the greater part of the men have to forego the privileges of citizenship, on account of the present election laws. This matter has aroused con siderable interest of late, as might be illustrated by the vigorous cam paign recently instigated in New York State. Dr. P. 0. Ray, head of the Political Science department at Penn State, has become so inter- ested in the problem, that he has drafted a bill, which if passed will solve the existing difficulties. This document is a proposed amendment to the present election laws of Pennsylvania. It provides that any person, lawfully entitled to a vote in a certain election dis trict shall be able to cast his ballot, while outside of this particular dis trict, providing that he lives up to certain provisions. Such a person if properly registered, may present himself to the judge of elections in another district and there sign an affidavit. Then he shall be pro vided with a regular ballot, which shall be sent with the affidavit to the prothonotary of his own coun ty. The prothonotary shall retain the ballot and shall eventually add its decision to the regular ballot sheet. It is clear that such a provision, if passed, would provide for the stu dent and the traveling man, and would allow them to take advantge of their citizen's privileges. Space will not permit a detailed discussion of this matter, but it should at once appear evident that the bill will be of vital consequence to the student. Every man should make it a point to interest himself in this sub ject, especially so as the measure will probably be presented to the legislature at this session. The Penn State Civic Club is working strong for the progressive move ment, and with the co-operation of the student body, something at least should be accomplished. Pennsylvania college papers are urged to take up this matter, and all Pennsylvania students and travel ing men are called upon to support the movement. The county clubs at this college, especially, can do efficient work by communicating with local boards of trade and representatives. THE COMING CONCERT Assurance of an Interesting Pro gram —Athletic Demonstration. All students should note the time and place of the coming glee club concert—in the Auditorium, on Friday evening, February 14, at eight o'clock. The nature of the program and the time and care devoted by the club to rehearsals insure a delightful evening's enter tainment. The wrestling match between Toronto and Penn State will take place on the following night, and if matters can be arranged, the con cert on Friday night will be attend ed by both teams. The period of time between the first and second parts of the program will be given over to the student body and the athletic teams representing two great nations—a fitting tribute to our visitors and an acknowledge ment of our ever broadening inter colleigate relations. It is already well known that the proceeds of this concert will be used to help defray the expenses of the western trip. To encourage student support, a very low price of admission will be charged to them; this fact and the knowledge of the purpose to which one contributes should insure a crowded house. General reserved seat sale at Co op Wednesday night at seven; student sale Thursday at seven. During his present trip to western colleges, Dean Holmes will speak at Universities of Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, lowa and Wisconsin and also at the lowa State College. .;pet , 'E COLLEGE, PA., FEBRUARY 12, 1913 SERVICE CAMPAIGN A BIG SUCCESS Many Prominent Men Here As Speakers and Advice Givers Much Good Accomplished. It would be of no avail to attempt to cover the ground of the whole "Service" campaign, which was in stituted by the Y. M. C. A. in the past week, as we take it for granted that the majority of the Penn State students have been so actively en gaged as to know all of the facts. It is however befitting to say that the campaign was extremely suc cessful, and that it was one of the most distinct and unique enterprises ever attempted at this institution. Such men as Graham Taylor clearly demonstrated how the think ing men of the country can better economic and social conditions, by performing acts of service—that is by educating the ignorant, by bet tering social conditions, and by in fluencing beneficial legislation. The religious standpoint was taken up, but this consideration differed so appreciably from the methods of some of the ancient reformers, that it was probably better understood by the average man, The leaders in this movement emphasized the application of Christian principles in a practical manner., Especially in the conference work, was an opportunity granted to men to discuss questions with some of the most expert sociolo gists and progressive reformers along certain Lirniches of humani tarian lines. Not alone were these men able to clear up doubts in their minds regarding certain ob scurities, but they were also led to take a more definite and decisive attitude concerning some of the questions of the day. This active campaign especially brought out the pertinent question of immigration, and one with which every college man should concern himself. As some would have it, the present inflow of emigrants is going to seriously affect the nation al spirit of the country. In this campaign it was demonstrated that if we are to permit these foreign people to come to our shores, it will be our duty to instruct them and to snake them conceive our national spirit and our mode of thinking. Whether this can be accomplished is yet to be determined, but never theless as conditions are at present, the idea of service, as set forth, is certainly a most admirable project. To the Y. M. C. A. of this insti tution, which had assumed the bur den of the organization of this movement, especial credit is due. It is no easy task to arrange sched ules and conferences, and the same to provide for the visitors, and from the experience behind us, we can readily judge, that these requisites were performed with aforethought and practicability. Considering the success of this campaign, and of the good advice and counsel administered to the student, it is to be hoped that Penn State will have the privilege in fu ture years, to witness more such events. Laymen's Missionary Movement Altoona will be the center of a Laymen's Missionary Movement to be held February 23, 24 and 25. Some of the most prominent speak ers and leaders of America will at tend this convention. Mr. J. Camp bell will have charge. our EGIA,,N. IIIeGILL DEFEATED Blue and White Matmen Win Open ing Meet of the Season Penn State opcned the wrestling season by defeating McGill Uni versity of Montreal Canada, lin Fri day evening in an inteiesting meet. The largest crowd that ever witness ed a meet on the local floor turned out to see the lit st meet of the sea son. The meet was held uncle! a compromise of the Canadian Inter collegiate Rules and those of the Eastern United States Intercol legiate League. If a fall were obtained within the nine minute limit, the contestants were to begin again and wrestle to the end of the nine minute period unless the same man succeeded in winning a second fall. If his opponent secured a fall an extra three minute bout was to be called for after the regular suc ceeding bout had been wrestled. Captain Shollenbeiger and Lamb distinguished themselves by being the only men that were able to secure two falls within the time limit. The meet opened with the bout of the 115 pound class. Baird a new man for Penn State, made a good showing but lost on decision to Ewart of McGill. Mendenhall and Audette next put up one of the most interesting bouts of the even ing, the latter showing himself to be one of the best men that has ever visited Penn State in the 125 pound class. McGill again won on decision Kirk another new men on the Blue and White team won the first point for his team by pinning Capt. Hughes to the mat soon after the bout started, but he could do noth ing more than win a decision. Fulkman and Ford put up one of the best exhibitions of the evening, the former securing the first fall of the meet with a combination arm lock and half nelson hold. Captain Shollenbergei made short work of his bouts in the 158 pound class. He secured the first fall in less than 3 minutes and followed it with a second in 17 seconds. Lamb showed to advantage in the heavy weight class and secured two falls in a little ovet 6 minutes Summary. 115 pound class- Ewart McGill, won on decision from 13aiir1 Penn State-9:00 min. 125 pouncl—Auclette, McGill won on decision from Mendenhall-9 00 mm. 135 pound—Kirk, Penn State won on decision from Capt.
