VOLUME 9 NUMBER 21
INDIANA UNIV. TUMBLES
Blue and White Matmen Win
Fourth Straight Victory—Bouts
Hard Fought—Score 5 to 0.
Before the largest crowd that has
ever attended a Penn State wrest
ling meet and in one of the hardest
fought meets ever seen here, Penn
State defeated Indiana University
in wrestling on Saturday evening by
the score of sto 0. Judging from
the score Penn State won easily,
but the score is misleading for
Indiana came here with a good
team and were not easily defeated.
The fact that in twelve six minute
bouts only three falls were recorded
shows how closely each bout was
wrestled and how hard Indiana
fought for each and every point.
The meet was held under a com
promise between Eastern and
Western Intercollegiate rules. This
resulted in a decision going to the,
winner of the best out of three six
Jones in the 125 pound class had
little trouble in his two bouts in
getting his man to the mat, but he
was unable to score a fall in either
Fulkman secured the first fall of
the meet by means of a half-Nel
son and body hold. In his second
bout he again assumed the aggres
sive and won easily on decision
after six minutes of fast work.
Drollinger ptit up one of the
hardest and fastest matches of the
evening against Captain Shollenber
ger. The firstbout ended in a draw,
the men spending most of the time
wrestling from the stand. In the
second bout there was more action.
After going to the mat Captain
Shollenberger became the aggressor
and two seconds before time was
called secured a fall. No decision
was given in the third bout but the
match was awarded' to Shollen
berger on his, fall of the second
Very, wrestling in the 175 pound
class, showed himself to be in
prime condition when he kept Dem'-
mon on the defensive throughout
their two bouts'. The first was won
by Very on decision but he took
the second on a fall resulting from
a body lock.
Lamb, in the heavyweight event,
came nearest meeting his match in
Davis, the All-Western football
tackle and Indiana's captain for
next year. The firgt and second
bouts were draws. In the third
Lamb succeeded in throwing Davis
to the mat, the decision going to
Lamb after 18 minutes of hard
125 pound class. Jones, Penn
State, won from Thompson, Indi
ana, on two decisions. Time, 6
minutes for each bout.

ING TO FORM
Team Learns Inside Baseball.
Selections Made for Southern
Trip. Coach Pleased With
Plans are now completed, the
men picked, and everything round
ing into shape for the baseball
team's annual southern invasion.
The men who will take the trip,
together with the coach and Man
ager Vosburg are Whitney, Ward
well, Hasselbacher, Hensierson,
Vogt, R. Craig, W. Craig, Keller,
Crawford, McKibben, Miller, Lie
bert and Kern.
Coach Manning has been drilling
the men thoroughly on inside base
ball for the last few days and it is
safe to say that our team will go
south this spring with more base
ball technique in their possession
than has any Penn State team pre
vious to this time.
The coach is endeavoring to over
come the handicap that the team
has undergone of having no outdoor
practice thus far by giving them a
mastery over the finer points of the
game and for this line of work a
more capable instructor would be
hard to find.
The trip will serve its usual
double purpose. It will help season
the team for the strenuous schedule
that confronts it on the return and
it will give the coach a good idea
of the mettle of the new__ men,
especially the infield.
', From indications in the infield
Kern will be found at first, W.
Craig at second, Keller at third,
and R. Craig at short. The rest of
the team will be composed of old
men with the exception of "Shorty"
Miller, who will quite likely per
form in center field.

STATE COLLEGE, PA., MARCH 12
The Yankee BrigandslScores a Hit.
Cast and Chorus Good—Stage
Setting and Music Original.
The Thespians showed to a
crowded house here last Friday,
the quality of past Thespian per
formances and the e::pectation of
another good original musical come
dy assured a large audience. Over
a thousand saw the play, and none
"The Yankee Brigs nds," a two
act musical comedy, is concerned
with the adventures of two enter
prising American yout.ls who are at
the head of a band of Grecian
brigands, and whose up-to-date in
novations in the way cm ; time clocks,
cash registers, bell boys and the
like are very amusing. Their dif
ficulties begin when two American
girls and their mother, with whom
one of the boys is acquainted, fall
into the hands of the brigands and
are held for ransom.
Dan E. Welty 'l5, as Jack Hen
shaw, handled his part in a very
creditable manner, and both his
acting and his singing were greatly
enjoyed. L. S. Raynor 'l6, as
Tom Brooks, the other American
youth, was the comedian of the
show, and was very successful in
amusing the audience.
W. B. Brush, Sp., and H. M.
Black 'l6, "The King" and "The
Colonel", outlawed' and noble
brigands, played their different
roles very capably. _
The singing of M, E. Kressly 'l5,
as Dimitri, was very enjoyable.
The part of Mrs. Livingston-Coles,
a charming but haughty widow
whose "conquests" during the play
were very amusing, was well acted
by L. H. Shultz 'l5.
Her charming daughter, Dorothy,
was H. G. Miller 'l5, whose success
as a musical comedy "queen" is
undisputed. ' W. C. Jimeson 'l6
was very pleasing as Dorothy's
Violetta, a passionate and tem
peramental Gypsy maid, was
represented in a realistic manner by
F. G. Ashbrook 'l4
The chorus of this year's show
was remarkably good, and some of
the best parts of the play were at
times when the chorus was.on the
stage. Voices, dancing, and ap
pearance combined to make a very
pleasing etfect. The girls were

Wilson, Rodgers, Townsend, Lie

An unusual and pleasing feature
of "The Yankee Brigands"is that all
the music, as well as the book and
lyrics, was written especially for the
Thespians, the former by Victor
Lecoq, the latter by Prof. J. S.
Crandell. The Thespian Orchestra,
directed by Prof. Crandell, has be
come a very capable organization.
Much of the scenery also was made
for the show, and the stage setting
and lighting effects were very good,
as well as costumes and appearance
of the cast and chorus. The show
should make a successful trip at

Negative Team Defeats Swarthmore
by 3-0, While Affirmative Team
Loses to Dickinson by 3-0.
The varsity debating teams of
this institution in their recent inter
collegiate debates, scored a decisive
victory at home, and at the same
time suffered a defeat abroad.
The debate in our Auditorium
last Saturday evening was closely
contested, and both teams showed
up to good advantage. The ques
tion was "Resolved, That judges
should be subject to recall by their
electorate. Constitutionalty con
ceded. The Swarthmore team,
which was composed of Raymond
T. Bye, C. Claude Smith, and W.
Russell Green, put forth strong
arguments, but the main asset of
this team was its oratory and
method of presentation.
The Penn State team, which was
made up of a Barto, M. Horst, E.
S. Ross, and J. R. Bracken, alter
nate, probably brought out the
strongest points of the evening, al
though its delivery wai not as good
as that of its opponents.
The refutation was good in both
instances, and the Negative scored
a point, when it demanded its op
ponents to give a definite plan for
putting its system into operation.
It may be said that our ream suf
fered the natural difficulties under
and that was to secure good au
thorities, and at the same time to
advance a feasible plan of institu
Both our teams, however, deserve
credit for their efforts, and as this
question was possessed of peculiarly
intricate conditions, it could hardly
be hoped that we should have been
successful on both sides.
