BLUE AND WHITE
Penn State in the Latter Part of the
(lame Wins a Slow but Interest
ing Contest from Dickinson.
A home run in the latter stages
of the game again won for Penn
State. This time it was Mason
who delivered the blow which sent
defeat to the visitors. Until the
eighth inning the game looked like
a Dickinson victory but a bard up
hill fight landed the Blue and
White a winner in a whirlwind fin
ish in the eighth inning.
Hoch, of Tri State experience,
was on the mound for Dickinson
and was intent upon winning, but
his wildness with opportune hitting
proved his undoing in the seventh
and unlucky eighth. Miller opened
for the locals hitting to centre field
for the circuit. Hoch immediately
started to work harder and struck
dut the next -six men to face him.
Mason started the third with a walk
and Liebert hit to right field. Mil
ler tried to sacrifice but finally
struck out and the chance to score
was lost when Mason was caught
off second by Hoch's quick throw
to Steckel. Crawford followed
with a hit but Henderson was
thrown out on a nice play by Hoch.
The visitors took the lead in the
fourth. Steckel singled and scored
when Rowley's hit to centre took a
bad bound ciyer, Mill d , or
three bases. p oose struckvut.but
Hoch worked the squeeze play
scoring Rowley. With two down,
Craig's wide throw put Goldstein on
base and he scored when Mason let
Hittner's throw of Davis' grounder
get by him.
Neither team could do anything
until the seventh although Komian
started the fifth with a walk and
stole second; he got no further,
while errors put visitors on second
and third in the sixth, only to be
Dickinson increased her lead in
the seventh when with two down
Price hit a homer to centre field.
Penn State's hopes also brightened
when Keller's would be single got
away from Rowley for two bases.
Komian walked and with two
strikes Mason singled, counting
Keller and placing Komian on sec
ond with no one down. Liebert's
attempted sacrifice forced Komian
at third on Hoch's quick throw to
Price. Miller then singled, but
kept on going to second, which sta
tion was occupied by Liebert. In
the mixup Miller was caught trying
to get back to first. Crawford
walked and Henderson struck out
with Penn State still one run be
Dickinson made her total five in
the eighth when Komian dropped
Moose's fly, Hoch sacrificed and
Goldstein singled. The latter stole
second but Liebert steadied and
retired Davis, Potter on strikes.
With a two run lead the visitors
looked like winners, but the wind and
Mason destroyed all calculations.
Craig, first up for State, hit a high
twisting fly over second base.
Stechel misjudged it and by the
time Rowley had picked up the
ball the peppery short stop was on
second. Hittner varied things by
striking out. Keller was hit by a
pitched ball. Craig in the mean
time got in the road of a throw to
catch him off second and reached
third. In attempting to catch him
at third Price dropped Hoch's
throw and Keller stole second.
McKibben was substituted to bat
for Komian but struck out. Mason
then came to the rescue. With two
strikes and cwo balls called, he
duplicated Miller's ,opening hit and
brought victory to the Blue and
White. The visitors looked dan
gerous in the ninth. Pauxtis walk
ed and immediately stole second.
Liebert threw out Price and held
Pauxtis on second. Steckel popp

Track Squad News
A large number of the track
squad took part in the preliminary
trials held last Saturday afternoon.
The strong wind that was blowing
down the track served to retard the
distance runners while the men in
the dashes were benefitted by it as
is shown by the time they made.
White won both the 100 yard and
220 yard dashes in 10.1 and 22.2
seconds respectively. Dolbin took
second in both of these events.
Hammitt found no trouble in win

STATE COLLEGE, PA., APRIL 23, 1913
GLEE CLUB CONCERT
Entertainment Given as Produced
on Santa Fe Trip. Large Audi
ence Well Pleased With Music
The Glee Club gave a concert in
the Auditorium last Saturday
night, the quality of which has
possibly never been attained before
at Penn State. The performance
sets a new standard which our
musical organizations must strive to
uphold. The entertainment was
given just as the club gave it at
the numerous stops on its tour
across the continent by courtesy of
the Santa Fe Railroad. This was
the reason for the use of several
selections that had been sung here
before. The concert and special
ties were enthusiastically received
by a large audience, which demand
ed many encores.
The program was presented in
two parts. Part one was opened by
the Glee Club singing "The Old
Brigade", followed by a baritone
solo by C. L. Yoder, 'l6. Profes
sor Robinson sang "Bonnie Sweet
Bessie" and was followed by L. R.
Austin, 'l6, the reader who accom
panied the Glee Club. Mr. Austin
gave several select readings which
were very pleasingly delivered.
Among the numerous other num
bers the College Quartette sang
"My Gld Bango" and "A Trajic
Gale", and encoredh several of
. 2 -
Lions. One piece which was heart
ily received was the ne? "College
Medley", combined and .. arranged
by Professor Robinson aria dedicat
ed to Penn State,
The second part of the program
was a sketch entitled "A Glimpse
of College Life" in which were in
troduced a number of college songs
and various comic specialties. The
club appeared on the stage in
negligee attire. Gillespie, 'l6 and
Armstrong special, in their minstrel
attire and dialect gave a minstrel
selection that caused much hearty
laughture and a deserved round of
applause from the audience. After
two hours of most pleasing enter
tainment the club closed its most
successful evening by singing
Professor Robinson's arrangements
of the "Alma Mater".
The entire Glee Club and
management deserves much credit
for the manner in which the ex
ceptional program was arranged
and rendered. Those who heard
Saturday's entertainment will not
wonder that our Glee Club was
received so favorably throughout
The Penn State lacrosse team has
arranged a game with the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania, to be played
on May 24th.
Last Saturday there were 16 men
out for the team. More men are
wanted however, and it is urged
upbn men inclined to favor this
sport, to come out for the team.
The chances are good for all who
wish to compete.
On the whole the prospects for a
successful season looks good. Al
though the sport is new here, it has
met with speedy recognition.

thousand students, Ex-president

Anniversary of Class of 1863
For some months past, a faculty
committee has been engaged in se
curing in'ormation in regard to all
those men who were ever enrolled
as members of the class of '63.
There were six graduates and
thirty-five non-graduates in the
class, many of whom were here but

It is hoped that this year's re
union will eclipse those successful
gatherings which we have had in
former years and a pressing invita
tion is extended to all living mem
bers of the class of '63 to return
here next commencement, June 10
and 11, for the fiftieth anniversary
of their graduation.
The following are names of mem
bers of the class of '63 concerning
whom we have no information.
In event that any of our readers
know the whereabouts of any of
these men, kindly communicate

Keep Off the Track
The track management requests
that the students, with the excep
tion of the officials and competi
tors, keep off the field during the
trials that will be held from now to
the end of the term. Another evil
that seems to be growing is the
carelessness that some students
seem to show in walking across the
track before runners or loitering
around the jumping pits in the way
of the men participating, before
crossing the field to the baseball
grandstand. Fellows, remember
this for the next time.
The following members of the
class of 1916 have been elected to
membership in the Druids:

PRICE FIVE CENTS
TEAMS FOR RELAYS
Final Selection Still Undecided
Penn State Team Draws Pole in
One Mile Relay.
Our four mile relay team which
leaves for Philadelphia this week to
take part in the Penn Relays finds
itself pitted against some of the
fastest college teams in the country
for that distance. The line up
from the pole will be as follows;
Univ. of Penna., Princeton, Dart
mouth, Ohio State; North-western,
and Penn State.
The team remains still unpicked
due to the fact that several of the
men are running in so nearly the
same time that the choice
cannot be made until the
time made by the men last Monday
was 4.40 which speaks well for
Coach Martin's effeCtive work thus
The one mile relay team meets
the sollowing colleges reading from
the pole, State, Carlisle, Fordham,
Georgetown, Ohio Wesleyan,
Worcester, Polytechnic, and
The men composing this team
are Piner, Leyden and Erb. The
fourth man will be either Michener
or Leibert from which a choice at
present seems hard to make. Last
Monday showed these five men to
be running around 53 sec., with two
of them below. This is the fastest
time ever recorded- on New Beaver
fora - relay tigem -7 at thieliffietif th-e
-year and it is fully expected that
they will give a good account of
themselves on the coming Saturday.
