PENN STATE NINE
Coach Manning's Team Wins One
Victory and Loses Four—New
Men Show Up Well.
Penn State opened the 1913
baseball season by playing the
strong Catholic University team at
Washington, D. C., Maich 19, the
home team winning by the score of
Bto 4. North Carolina University
also secured a 5-1 victory from the
Blue and White the following day.
Two very close games were lost by
Captain Whitney's team at Durham
and at West Raleigh where games
with Trinity College and A. and M.
College resulted in two 4-3 scores.
The fourth game on the trip,
played against Washington and Lee
at Lexington, Virginia, resulted in a
10-6 victory for Penn State. Ward
well pitched a good game, striking
out 14 men, and the team hit be
Washington and Lee turned the
tables the following day and scored
three runs in the eighth inning, giv
ing them a one run lead and a 4-3
Considering the fact that only
one outdoor practice had been pos
sible when our team left on the
initial trip and that the southern
colleges had been playing ball for
some time, the result of the trip
indicates that the Blue and White
team should have a successful sea-
The men were handicapped
seriously by lack of practice and by
the loss of Captain Whitney, whose
arm did not allow him to partici
pate in any of the games. Hender
son hit hard on the trip and Miller
and Craig together stole 13 bases.
Miller, Keller and Hittner, of the
new men, played well in the games.
Three 4-3 games were played and
lost, a fact that can be attributed to
the lack of a hit at the right time,
as 37 men were left on base in the

A SUCCESSFUL TRIP
Large Houses Turn Out to Witness
The performance of last Saturday
night in Bellefonte completed one
of the most successful Thespian
tours since the organizatian of this
society. The circuit included Har
risburg, Sunbury, Clearfield, Wil
liamsport and Bellefonte.
The initial performance was
given in Harrisburg at the Majestic
Theatre on Tuesday evening,
March 25, and was greeted by a
large and enthusiastic audience
among which were Governor and
Mrs. Tener and President and Mrs.
Sparks, supported by many state
dignitaries and members from the
House and Senate. Many alumni
from Harrisburg and surrounding
towns and parties of high school
children were in attendance. On
the following evening the Thespians
played to a small but very appreci
ative audience at the Chestnut
Street Opera House at Sunbury.
This performance, which was prob
ably the best given during the trip,
was followed by a dance in honor
of the members of the troupe.
From here the players journeyed to
Clearfield where they appeared at
the New Opera House on Thursday
evening, March 27, before the larg
est audience ever accorded a Thes
pian production. This performance
was also followed by a dance for
the members of the troupe. The
next performance was at Williams
port where our fellows were greeted
by a very poor house. Despite
this fact the cast produced one of
the best shows of the trip and their
efforts were repaid by the appreci
ation of those who witnessed it.
The concluding performance at
Bellefonte on Saturday night fully
met all expectations.
Raynor 'l6, Shultz 'l5, Miller 'l5
and Ashbrook 'l4, made the great
est hits throughout the trip and the
acting of the company as a whole
was very good. The musical num
bers were well received and its ren
dition of the best.
After the production in Harris
burg, Moyer acted as leader of the
orchestra. Harold Foster, a 1910
man and former Thespian star,
accompanied the troupe on the trip.
There will be a meeting of the
Deutscher Verein on Friday even
ing of this week in the Old Chapel
at 7:30 p. m. Mr. Mentzenthin will
give a talk on German military life,
illustrating his talk with the aid of
several students in German military
uniforms. Music and a humorous
recitation will also be features of
Men of Finance.
All candidates from the 1915
class for the position of Associate
Business Manager report to L. B.
Keelan sometime during the follow
ing hours: Wednesday 4 to 5:30 p.
m., Friday 4 to 5:30 p. in., Thurs
day 6 to 7:30 p. m., at Nittany

STATE COLLEGE, PA., APRIL 2, 1913
SEASON ON THE MAT
Wrestling Season .Closes Without a
Defeat—Penn State Again Cham-
pion of the. Mat
With the victory over Lehigh
University at South Bethlehem just
before the Easter recess, Penn State
brought to a close the most success
ful wrestling season that the Blue
and White has ever had. The
schedule was more varied* than ever
before but the Blue and White mat
men adapted themselves to con
ditions and ended the season with
five decisive victories to - their credit.
The season opened with victories
on the local mats over McGill and
Toronto Universities,of Canada,with
scores of 4 to 2 and 6 to 1, respect
ively. These teams proved to be
good attractions and served to get
Penn State in shape for the Cornell
meet at Ithaca. The Cornellians
proved to be the third victim and
lost a hard fought meet by a 5 to 2
The next victory was over Indi
ana University on the local mats.
The largest crowd that has ever
witnessed a local meet turned out
and everyone got his money's
worth, for the 5 to 0 victory does
not indicate the difficulty with
which the Blue and White came
through the winners. The final
meet of the season was a victory
over Lehigh, whose team had an un
broken string of victories up to that
time. The score was 4 1-2 to 2 1-2.
The coaching of Ititte.am, as in
the past, devolved mostly upon
Physical Director Lewis and a great
deal of credit must be given to him
for the success of the season. He
spared neither time nor his physical
welfare in developing the best team
Penn Ssate has ever had. In the
middle of the season his efficiency
for the time being was lessened by
an injury to an ankle in practice
which kept him off the mat for the
rest of the season. The Blue and
White were again fortunate in
securing the services of "Kid" Bat
ten, coach of Toronto University.
The little Englishman proved a
worthy factor in the final develop
ment and success of the team.
Too much credit cannot be given
to Captain Shollenberger for the
success of the season. Never has
a Blue and White captain given
more time and thought to the lead
ing of a team and never more suc
cessfully has such a leadership re
sulted. He was a clean hard wrest
ler and won four of his bouts, losing
the fifth on decision. Very and
Fulkman were the other senior var
sity men and their work speaks for
itself. Neither lost a bout during
the season, the former winning four,
while the latter won four and had
one draw. The places of these
three men will be hard to fill next
year, for they were without a doubt,
the best men in the college wrest
ling world in their respective
Of the men left to form a nucleus
for next year's team Jones, Sayre,
and Lamb proved to bewinners. The
first named won three out of four
bouts, the second two out of three
bouts, wbile to Lamb belongs the
distinction of being the only man
to participate in every meet and be
returned a winner ever time.
Mendenhall is another senior
who showed up especially strong
toward the end of the season while
Kirk, Homer, Brown and Baird, all
made a good showing in the first
varsity experience. They make
promising material for next year.
Callender of the 1912 varsity was
kept out on account of injuries sus
tained early in the season, but will
help to make a good team in 1914.
The last and probably most fund
amental factor in the success of the
season was the result of much
thought and labor on the part of B.
A. Jarrett, who looked after the
business side of the season. The
securing of a suitable schedule
proved a difficult proposition and
required in the end large guaran
The meetings of the branch
Alumni Association in the various
cities during the past week were in
terfered with by the floods. Sec
retary R. H. Smith reached Chica
go but President Sparks, who went
first to the Thespian performance
at Harrisburg, was unable to get be
yond Pittsburgh. About thirty
five State men attend the banquet
which was held at the Union
League Club. Mr. W. B. Jackson,
'9O, acted as toastmaster.
The Cleveland dinner the follow
ing evening was given at the unique
Hermits' Club, with A. G. McKee,
'9l, as toastmaster, and H. A. Way,
'99, giving the address of welcome.
The chief discussion was upon the
desirability of adopting a three
year rule for participation in inter
collegiate athletics. Thirty alumni
were present. The program was in
the form of a blueprint showing
the rise and fall of cnthusiasm be
fore and after the various speeches.
At Buffalo, Dr. H. H. Glasser,
'96, was toastmaster, and the
banquet was held at the Buffalo
Club, with twenty-four men present.
H. D. Miles, 'B9, made the principal
address. The club decided to aid
the Alumni Secretary in locating
former students who did not
The Pittsburgh dinner was the
climax of weeks of effort, and the
result surpassed the expectation of
even the committee. Over 200
alumni were present and the Pitts
burgh papers declared it easily led
any college banquet of the year.
"Boost Penn State" was the motto
of the evening. Sen. J. S. Weller*
'B9, directed the speaking, and G.
E. Ogilvie, 'lO, with W. L. McCoy,
'lO, led the cheering. Honorable
George E. Alter, Speaker of the
House of Representatives, and an
honorary alumnus of the college,
brought down the house by declar
ing for the largest appropriation
the college had ever received.
At each dinner, telegrams were
were sent to General James A.
Beaver, expressing hope for his

The early spring has already
started the track aspirants on their
daily routine of practice on New
Beaver field. Each evening Coach
Martin puts the men through the
regular preliminary work, special
attention being had at present to
the quarter and one milers.
The training table started April

Keyser, Denny, Michener, Piner,
Hebrick, Hammitt, Schroeder,
Horst, Lewis, Fischer and Hen
ning. These men are candidates
for the one mile or four mile teams.
Men from the special events will be
added to the training table later.
The manager and coach are plan
ning to take a four mile team as
well as the one mile team to the
Penn relays. The prospects at
present are favorable. Final de
cision will not be made however
until the coaches are confident that
the work of the men justifies this
Work in the special events is be
ing caned on in a general way, the

Coach Martin declares himself
well pleased with the outlook and
the attitude taken by the men for
their work so for. With what we
know of the men -left- over from
last year's team and the new mater
