New Men Look Good—lndications
Point to Good Team—Strong
Nucleus Remains of Last Year's
Present weather conditions indi
cate that the baseball team will be
forced to leave for the Southern
trip on the 18th without having had
any preparatory outdoor practice.
This fact makes the picking of the
most likely candidates somewhat of
a task for Captain Whitney and
Coach Manning. Daily indoor
practice, however, is enabling the
coaches to make their selection and
bringing out the fact at the same
time, that the team will have a
wealth of very good second string
material for the coming season.
In the pitching department the
old reliables, Whitney and Ward
well, will doubtless do the major
part. Among the most promising
aspirants for this position are Sei
del, Craig, Cope, Hasselbach and
Henderson is naturally first
choice behind the bat with Vogt
and Graham good second choice
men; Unger is also showing up well
The infield is beyond doubt the
most difficult problem that the
coaches have to solve, as it will be
composed entirely of new men.
Bob Craig will probably come in
. the outfield to play at short.
Keller, W. Craig, Kern, Mason, Mc-
Cracken and Hittner appear at pres
ent to be the most capable contend
ers for the remaining positions. Of
these Kern and McCracken, last
year's second string men, should
make strong bids.
The outfield positions will be
more easily settled as Crawford and
McKibben remain from last year.
'the most promising man for the re
maining berth is "Shorty" Miller.
Dawson, Neagly and Kominarsky
are also contenders for this place.
Five games will be played during
.their stay in the South. Washing
ton and Lee (two games), Univer
sity of North Carolina and A.
and M. again appear on the
southern schedule, Trinity being the
new team added. Negotiations are
being carried on to secure a game
during Commencement week with
the Chinese University team that
last year toured the country playing
various colleges and universities.
The success of last year's team
was to a large extent due to the
efficient work of Coach Manning,
and Penn State has again been for
tunate in securing his services this
year. With Mr. Manning as coach
and the material with which he has
to work, we feel safe in predicting
another successful season for our

BINDER IS CAPTAIN-ELECT
Fast Varsity Forward Honored
With Basketball Captaincy.
Choice is a Popular One.
William G. Binder 'l4, of Roches,
ter, New York, was on Monday
afternoon unanimously elected to
captain the Penn State varsity
basketball team for the collegiate
year 1913-14. Binder was the pop
ular choice of his fellow players
and the student body.
The basketball career of the mid
get forward is interesting. He
learned the game in Philadelphia
and later played for his school team
in Rochester. Upon his entrance
to Penn State he became a member
of the freshman team and played
so brilliantly that at the end of the
winter he was elected class captain
for the ensuing year. He success
fully captained his team last year to
the league championship. All the
class guards found him a trouble
some forward and he led the
league in point scoring. As a
member of the varsity team this
year, Binder has proved himself
worthy of the honor he has just re

STATE COLLEGE, PA., MARCH 5, 1913
Sensationalism Persdnfied in Com
ing Thespian Show—The Best of
College Talent at Auditorium
INever in the history of the Penn
State Thespians have - they had such
a collection of daintily beautiful
chorus "girls". They are the pick
of over one hundrect and twenty
five who were tried out, and were
selected for their cOmliness, danc
ing, singing and nerve. While
some of the voices are bass and
others are tenor, this only adds
piquancy to the general ensemble.
The chorus men who have been in
former Thespian shows declare
that they never saw a more delight
ful aggregation of loveliness. Wal
ter W. Whetstone, la premiere
danseuse,will make Genee look to her
laurels when he pirouettes in the Pas
Seul written expressly for him,
while Edward F. James as a Grec
ian "brigandess" will make Lillian
Russel envious. Equally charming
in their fashion tire the other
chorus maidens and they will dance
and sing their way into the hearts
of their audiences wherever they go.
Their costumes are bizarre and
exotic in the extreme, fabrics rare
and startling blending in a tumultuous
display. The chorus - men dressed in
becoming . Grecian apparel, form a
picturesque background against
which the girls stand out in their
pristine glory. ...
The songs arc rapy and filled
with life and vim. "Hire a Guide",
"Have You Ever &en in Love",
"Dont", "A Lovely Widow", "I
Love You the Whole Year Round,"
and "I'm Proposing" are songs that
are sure to make a "hit". "Hold
'Em State" to be sung by Jack
will beyond any doubt receive loud
Hold 'Em State.

On last Friday evening, in his

He also laid much emphasis on

Dr. Headland also spoke on Sun

these two occasions he also paid
particular attention to foreign mis

CORNELL IS DEFEATED
Blue and White Matmen Win Great
Victory. Bouts Are Hard Fought.
Each Team Secures Two Falls.
When the Penn State Wrestling
team left for Ithaca on Friday
they had but one object in view,
Namely, the defeat foffiCornell.
They accomplished their aim by
winning decisively in one of the
hardest fought meets of the season.
The meet was hard fought because
Cornell also wanted victory. Inter
collegiate champions last year, and
recently defeated by Lehigh, they
fought desperately to maintain
their receding record. But they
could not down the Blue and White.
They were defeated but not dis
graced for the struggle was a
Jones started the Penn State
victory. On an attempt to secure a
chancery, he was thrown to the mat
by Tussinari. Jones at once assum
ed the aggressive and by using an
arm roll soon landed on top, from
where he secured a fall with a body
hold and arm lock.
The Cornellians succeeded in
evening up the score in the next
bout. Brown assumed the aggres
sive and threw his man to the mat;
after three minutes of work Boak
pulled him under with a leg hold
but the latter got up. When they
hit the mat the second time Boak
was on top and finally scored a fall
by using a hammerlock and half
Fulkman won the next bout for
Penn State. The men worked over
six minutes from a stand, when by
one of his characteristic whirling
motions, Jack threw his man to the
mat. Although not able to secure
a fall he received the decision at
the end of nine minutes.
Captain Shollenberger added the
next point toward a Blue and
White victory by putting up a hard
bout against Culbertson, of Cornell.
They hit the mat with the Cornel-
Han on top from where he tried to
secure the hammerlock. Coming
to a stand in the break, they mixed
things and our Captain landed on
top, where he stayed until the end
of 12 minutes when he received the
Probably the hardest fought bout
of the evening was that between
Very and Ryder, in which Penn
State was again returned a winner
after 12 minutes of hard fast work.
The Blue and White man used an
arm lock to advantage and won a
decision at the end of 12 minutes.
Cornell took the next bout when
Captain Bame brought Sayre to the
mat with a flying tackle and by
using a hammerlock combined with
wrist lock secured a fall.
Lamb in the heavyweight won
the second fall of the evening for
Penn State by means of a body
