and Meet by Decisive Score Six
Penn State again showed good
form and great strength on the
mats, when her team defeated the
strong team of the University of
Toronto by the score of 6 to 1 on
Saturday evening. Again the Arm
ory was packed with an enthusias
tic, appreciative and fair minded
audience. Interest •.was at fever
heat and the cheering was 'excellent
Toronto came with a good repu
tation to defend. Her Coach,
"Kid" Batten is bantam weight
champion of England and his team
showed the effect of good training
in this regard. They were defeat
ed but evrn with the one sided
score put up a brand of wrestling
that marked tliem as one of the
best teams that has ever appeared
on the Penn State mats.
Penn State opened with a victory
when "Little Jack Homer" put in
his thumb and pulled out the first
plum from the Toronto pie. The
bout was well contested. Homer
securing a fall ,at the end of 6
minutes from his heavier opponent.
Jones and Morrison came on next

be telling and he threw his man

received a badly wrenched knee and
could not continue the bout, losing
by default. • Fulkman again show
ed his characteristic speed and at
the end 3 minutes and 35 seconds

Toronto and Captain Shollen
berger of Penn State. The former
has won several, medals as an am
ateur in the provinces, among
others being Amateur Y. M. C. A.
champion of Canada, while the lat
ter is considered, one' of the best
men in his class in the college
wrestling world. A great exhibi
tion was given and the bout was
hard fought. There were several
imminent falls 'but neither could'
complete his advantage to that end.

THREE IN A ROW
Penn State Five Loses Three Close-
ly Contested Games Binder
Plays Exceptional Game.
The Penn State basketball team
took a strenuous trip the litter part
of last week dropping- games to Le
high, Swarthmore and Franklin and
Marshall. The team made the dor
mitories at Swarthmore and the
several fraternity houses at Lehigh
and Franklin and Marshall their
headquarters. As was the case on
the Western trip, Penn State was a
leading attraction and played to
crowded gymnasiums. Collegiate
work prevented Mauthe and Craig
from taking the trip. Binder per
formed well in all three games and
was easily the best shot on the
team. . .
The team opened its series of
games in South Bethlehem with Le
high as the opponent. Every repre
sentative of the Blue and White
played hard but lost to the strong
est teams in the the East. The
Lehigh team was especially strong
in intercepting passes. The Swarth
more game was not so sensational
or well played as the Lehigh game.
With a tk scut e 'and - tine - minute to
play in this game, McKissick made
good at a f'ree shot from field and
at the same time was fouled. Wea
ver at the fool line then increased
Swarthmore's two-joint lead to a
three-point lead which it retained
until the whistle blew a half mo
ment later. Park turned his ankle
near the end of the game and was
~ by Willard. The final
game of the trip terminated in a 26
to 23 victory for Franklin and
Marshall. Brenner's accurate
shooting for F. and M. was largely
responsible for Penn State's de
feat. The scores.

STATE COLLEGE, PA., FEBRUARY 19, 1913
THESPIAN ORCHESTRA CHOSEN
Nineteen Pieces to Ftfrnish Music
for “The Yankee Bkigands".
A pleasing feature, that accom
panies The Thespians c this year is
the excellent spirit that came with
every man who respOnded to the
call for material. The Thespians
have an orchestra this year of nine
teen pieces, which with] be the larg
est orchestra that ever r played for a
show in State College.; Prof. J. S.
Crandell is the director and is mak
ing excellent progress. The musi
cians who were picked from the
best in the college incl ide the fol
lowing: clarinets, Sumner, Strickler
and Jamison; comets, Moyer and
Jones; trombones, Clapp and Mor
rell; drums, S. Redsecker; piano,
W. B. Walton; violins, Brodstein,
Crawford, Cressmall, Eckley,
Grundhoeffer and O'Brien; viola,
W. G. Powell; cello, A. D. Robin
son; flute, G. B. Leyden.
The music was written especially
for "The Yankee Brigands", which
will be produced by The Thespians
for the first time on Friday, March
the seventh, in the Auditorium.
Prof. J. S. Crandell wrote all the
words and Victor Lecoq, of New
York City, wrote the music for the
show. The music was orchestrated
by Prof. Crandell. Every indica
tion points to an excellent perform
ance and a prosperous year for The
Pitt Versus Penn State
Penn State's varsity basketball
team will wind up it, c success
ful season,. on Saturday night, when
it meets the University of Pitts
burgh on the Armory floor. The
team has made a good, record this
year and it is putting it mildly to
state that it has not received the
support it deserves. It is incon
ceivable that there were fewer than
500 paid admissions at the recent
Allegheny game, a number which
conclusively proves that only a
small proportion of the student
body is witnessing the home ,bas
ketball games. The admission fee
is small and let every man be on
hand Saturday night at 7:15 to see
Penn State's best basketball team
in action. On account of the many
house parties over Washington's
birthday, special provision will be
made to accommodate the largenum
ber of lady visitors who are ex
pected to attend the game.
The Pitt five is one not to be
toyed with as it has an excellent re
cord, having won most of its games
this year including victories over
such strong teams as Swarthmore
and Penn. Penn State's 30 to 25
victory over Pitt during the western
trip must not be considered as an
everyday occurrence as this game
was hard fought from start to fin

MINING SCHOOL INSPECTED
Prominent Mine Operators Are In-
terested in Our School
The growing interest and appre
ciation shown toward the develop
ment of our Mining School was
clearly evidenced last week by the
presence of official committees of
two state mining organizations.
The following men represented the
Bituminous Mine Operators of
Pennsylvania:—J. B. Irish, of W. R.
Roberts and R. A. Cha Meld, Phila
delphia; R. Peale and J. P. Lincoln,
of New York; B. M. Clack of Punx
sutawney; and J. C, Cosgrove, of
Cherry Tree. Representing the
Clearfield District of t 1 e United
Mine Workers of America v, ere -
Robert Lindie, of Blossburg; Hugh
McGinty, of Osceola!Mills; and Jas.
Purcell, of Wellsboro.
The visitors made a caietul in
spection of the resources of the
school with the idea of determin
ing its nzeds, and taking measures,
through their representative organ
izations, to aid in securing more
adequate state support. This is the
first time that either mine operators
or workers have seen fit to actively
support the school; and the fact
that the two have co-operated is an
assurance that the production of
skilled mining engineers is ccnsider
ed a valuable asset to the state.

PRICE FIVE CENTS
Delightful Musical Entertainment
Presented Before L'irge A 'id i-
ence—Given Under Auspices of
the Glee Club to Partially Defray
Expense 3 of Western Trip
A delightful evening's entettain
ment was afforded a large audience
in the Auditorium last Friday even
ing by a conceit given under the
auspices of the Penn State Glee
Club. The performance was be
yond a doubt one of the best, per
haps the very best, of its kind that
has been produced here; and it may
well be a matte. of pride to icalize
that we have, at Penn State, talent
of such a varied and decided na
ture as that shown on Friday even
The Glce Club was well assisted.
Hawley's "Bedouin Love Song"
was .veil sung by G. H. Moffitt 'l3,
leaclei of the c!,.b, a bass solo, El
liott's "Hybrias the Cretan," sung
by C. M. Logan 'l6, was also very
pleasing. A banjo solo by R G.
Spiegle 'l3 was an enjoyable fea
ture of the program; and several
humorous readings by L. R. Aus
tin 'l6 proved to he very Lilt, r
taMing. One of the hits of the
evening was scored by the collu - e
quartet, Messrs. Robinson, Kies'A
Leyden, and Vale. Their humor
ous selections, notably "My Ole
Banjo" and "A Tragic Story," were
very amusing, and the quartet was
heartily encored as long as it could
respond. The first oars of the pro
gram was closed by the Mandolin
Club, under the direction of E. N.
Sullivan 'l4, playing expressively
The glee club itself, one hundred
male voices, sang four of the twelve
numbers on the program. The
conceit was impressively opened by
their singing, in martial manner,
Park's "Old Brigade," one of the
most generally appreciated num
bers given. Stevenson's "Tulita,"
a Spanish love song was sung with
great precision and expression.
Perhaps the most difficult of the
glee club selections was the well
known poem, "Three Fishers," set
to music by Goldbeck; and the
manner in which it was delivered
vouches for the ability of the club
and its director. "The Land of the
Sky-blue Water," sung as an en
core, was especially good. The
closing number of the entertain
ment was Pint'. Robinson's arrange
merit of Bond's beautilid compo
sition, "A Perfect Day," and it
would be difficult to find a more
fitting ending to a delightful enter
While our musical organizations
in previous years have been worthy
indeed, the care and attention of a
talented director, the ensuing re
newal of interest among the student
body, the prospect of a wonderful
dip this year and the increased
prestige of following years have
combined to a remarkable extent in
producing a conceit like that given
Friday night. The well filled Audi
torium was evidence that a college
organization, to be .upported at
Penn State, must simply "make
good." The Glee Club has certain
ly "made good."

last year, the 1913 Civil engineering
