Pitching Staff Threatens to Be
Weakened—Six Games Are to Be
Owing to the favorable turn of
the weather the departing team has
had a chance to secure some valu
able outdoor practice before its
first game.
The squad, which leaves on the
12:60 train Tuesday morning, is
composed of the men named in the
previous issue with the exception of
Hittner and Unger. The former
goes as a utility infielder and Unger
as a substitute catcher.
Six games are now scheduled for
this trip. The first team, which
our men meet and likely the strong
est is the Catholic University of
Washington. This game is to be
played on the 19th. Games follow
on the 20th, 21st, 22nd, 24th and
25th. The last two games on the
schedule are with the fast Washing
ton and Lee team.
The condition of Whitney's arm is
causing the team some worriment.
Last fall in football, Captain Whit
ney had some ligaments torn in his
shoulder and this spring finds it still
weak. In case of the worst the
pitching will fall on Wardwell, Lei
bert and Hasselbacher.
Both coach and captain,_
ever, are optimistic and express
themselves as defiKll. , " , ) •

Spring Football Practice
Spring football practice, which
was first instituted here last year,
will start shortly after the close of
the Easter vacation period. While
the success which attended the
inauguration of this training and the
benefits derived therefrom have
been strong factors in deciding
those interested to repeat it this
year, probably the strongest argu
ment in favor of its repetition is the
fact that it will be necessary to
develop six new men to fill the
positions left vacant by the gradua
tion of Mauthe, Very, Hansen,
Engle, Whitney and Wilson.
Practice this spring will ne very
intensive and its prime object will
be to develop the individual abili
ties of each man. Punting, drop
kicking and the use of the forward
pass will receive special attention.
The above named men will act as
coaches and candidates will thus be
given the opportunity to benefit by
their experience. The dace for
reporting for practice will be
announced later.
Alumni Gatherings.
President Sparks and Graduate
Manager Smith will take an extend
ed trip beginning March 26. They
will attend alumni gatherings and
banquets respectively in Cleveland,
Buffalo and Pittsburgh on March
26, 27 and 28.
Large attendances at these ban
quets are expected, because of the
growing competition among our
centered alumni, caused by the
more manifest interest of the state
of Pennsylvania.

Penn State Grapplers End Season
With Notable Victory—First De
feat of the Season for Lehigh.
On Saturday evening the Blue
and White wrestling team ended the
most successful season of Penn
State teams on the mat. In the
final meet of the season Lehigh
was forced to taste the bitterness
of defeat upon her own mats. To
add still more to the sting of de
feat, the Brown and White had not
been defeated this season and were
counting upon a season of unbroken
victories but they had not reckoned
with the Blue and White team,
which stood between them and a
cleam slate for the season. Cornell
and Lehigh look to have the best
teams in the Intercollegiate Asso
ciation,, but no matter which one
wins the championship in the Inter
collegiates, Penn State has the best
claims to the college champion
ships of the United States and Can
ana. Clean cut, decisive victories
over the strongest representatives
from the Canadian Intercollegiate
conference, the Western Intercol
legiate Association and the Eastern
Intercollegiates of the United
States, are the basis for this claim.
The meet at Lehigh was looked
upon by supporters of both teams
as the crucial one of the season.
Lehigh wanted that coveted victory
- over -- Penn State, - she needed that
omake her season a complete suc
orciird turned out to see the meet.
Mall counted five points and-a-de
cisive counted four points.
Another feature which tended to
make victory more desired was the
donation of prized to the winning
members of the team by merchants
of the town. Their interest and
generosity are to be highly com
mended. Prizes were offered by
the following business men of
the town: Messrs Sim, the clothier,
Gilliland, the druggist, Shiley, the
jeweler, Smith, of the Toggery
Shop, Sauers, the Men's Furnisher,
Graham, the confectioner, and
Wood, proprietor of the moving
picture show. C. W. Smith also
gave a time prize to the member
of the team who should secure the
quickest fall.
Lehigh's hopes and enthusiasm
ran high at the start when Suppes
in the 115 pound class secured a
fall from Jones in quick time by
using a bar chancery hold. Cap
tain Herr added four more points
by getting a decision over Menden
hall in twelve minutes of fast even
ly matched wrestling. Most of the
work was done from the standing
The 135 pound bout was likewise
close and hard fought, after stand
ing five minutes Fulkman threw
his man to the mat but could keep
him there for only a short time.
During the extra three minutes
called for the men worked from a
stand and the bout was called a
draw, each team getting two points.
Captain Shollenberger really started
the Blue and White victory. Flick
proved to be fast on his feet but
could not keep away from the Penn
State Captain, who threw his man
to the mat and secured a fall with a
bar and chancery hold. Very
added the next points which put
Penn State in the lead. Securing
an arm hold, he threw his man over
his hip to the mat and in short
order secured a fall from a crotch

Prof. J. S. Crandell who has been
ill with pneumonia expects to be in
his place as leader of The Thespian

As mucker is a broad word, we
wonder if the large number of up
per classmen, nearly two hundred,
who pushed into the gynasium at
the recent interclass scrap without
paying, could not be defined as
The reason given by them for re
fusing to pay the admission fee
was that they came to see the bouts
that followed and not the game,but
as the vast majority of them came
in during the first few minutes of
play, this reason is not justified
and looks rather as if an unfair
advantage was taken of an unavoid
able opportunity. Fellows is: this
true college spirit ?

Have Been Sent to Many High,
Preparatory and Normal Schools
May 2 has been set as the date
for the Annual Inter-scholastic
Track Meet which is held in con
junction each year with the High
School Principals' Conference. The
purpose of this meet is to get the
larger high schools and preparatory
schools of the state interested in
the college, and with this idea in
view invitations have already been
sent to many schools. In addition
to the regular high school class,
there will be a special normal and
preparatory school class. An open
relay event is also planned.
Prizes will be awarded consisting
of gold, silver and bronze medals.

number of points and the college
offers two scholarships, one to be
given to the school securing the
highest number of points and the
college offers two scholarships, one
to be given to the school the high
est score and the other to the
highest individual point winner.
The idea of the publicity of the
track meet at this time is to give us
time to talk the idea up at our
various homes. Former meets
have been very 'successful, and

forming this — the largos' - •

Reno, the Magician.
On Saturday night, March 29,
Edward Reno, who is known coun
try wide as the Prince of Magicians,
will appear at the Auditorium with
a full repertoire of Indian, Syrian
and Egyptian magic.
Reno has been in the business
thirty-two years, and as a result of
his constant study of the subject,
aided by remarkable talent, he has
discovered a thing or two not
known Lo many professionals.
In fact, Professor Reno is super
ior to the large majority of contem
porary magicians. He is delightfully
original, marvelously clever, and
enthusiastically devoted to his art
and is not merely the sleight of
hand man that is too often palmed
off on an intelligent audience, as a
disciple of the mystic art.
Professor Reno has been secured
for this date at consideaable ex
pense, but in order that every stu
dent may have the opportunity to
see and hear him, the price of ad
mission has been cut to a minimum.
