INDIANA TAKES MEET
Indiana Normal and Harrisburg
High Winners in Their Classes
Fast Time and Sensational Per
formers Feature the Meet.
Contrary to general expectations
Indiana Normal nosed out the fast
Mercersburg track team for first
place in Class A in the Interscho
lastic Meet last Friday, winning the
meet with sixty-six points to
their credit, two more than the
Mercersburg men could accumulate.
Bloomsburg Normal and Bellefonte
Academy followed in this class
with eleven and seven points to
to their credit, respectively.
In Class B, Harrisburg High
proved an easy winner. For sec
ond honors Harrisburg Tech fol
lowed closely bunched with Johns
town, Sewickly and Philipsburg in
the order given.
Although the meet was well bal
anced in every event the work of
two men—Robinson of Mercers
burg and McMasters of Sewickley
High—was always conspicuous.
Robinson, in this meet, aided by a
slight breeze, gained the distinction
of breaking the world's record in
the 220 yard dash in the phenom
enal time of 20 4-5 seconds. His
- performance in the 100 yard event
was almost equally remarkable.
His time in this event was 9 3-5
seconds in the semi-final. The
final was won in 9 4-5 seconds.
McMasters in the High School
c. , Lass,-*Ecs the nis
markable athlete took first in
the 100 yard dash, broad
jump and pole vault. He tied for
first in the 220 yard dash but lost
on the toss up.
Other individual performers who
showed up well were Maxfield of
Mercersburg in the weight events,
Meyers of Indiana, in the dashes
and hurdles; M. Palm of Philips
burg, in the weights, and Schneider
of Bellefonte Academy in the broad
Harrisburg High School carried
away most of the prizes for Class
B, receiving together with individu
al medals, one year's possession of
the cup, the banner, and a scholar
ship. The other scholarship for
this class went to McMasters, the
Sewickley High School boy. Indi
ana was the heaviest winner of
Class A. Both scholarships went

STATE COLLEGE, Pk., MAY 7, 1913
HOME RUNS WIN GAME
Miller Opens Game With Clout for
Circuit and Leibeit Practically
Wins his Own ' Game With
For the third time this season
"Shorty" Miller opened a home
game by hitting a home run. This
clout started the scoring in a
game which furnished all kinds of
baseball, from the rankest errors of
commission and omission to some
of the best plays pulled off on the
local diamond this year. After
nine and two thirds inning's of this
baseball "medley," Penn State
emerged a winner over Albright by
a 9-to-8 score.
Following Miller's four base hit
the visitors became generous and
errors followed by hits by Mason
and Keller added two more. Not
to be outdone, the locals at once
became altruistic and soon helped
the visitors to a cne-run lead.
Crawford however even matters in
the fourth. He walked, stole
second and caught the visitors nap
ping by going all the way home on
Henderson's infield hit to Pownall.
In the seventh Moll's error placed
Kominarski on second. Keller had
walked and when Moll attempted
to complete a double play on
Kominarski's sharp hit to Pownall,
the ball went to the bleachers. Mc-
Kibbens hit scored.Koininarski.
Benfer opened thi : f eighth with
his third single, but_thkgs brighten
ed when . goll forced him at second,
Liebert to McKibben. Liebert
however booted Hummel's tap to
Mason who could not pick up the
ball to complete the play. Hartz
ler singled, Yost went out to first;
but Keller errored Shreffley's hit
and Pownall cleaned up with his
third single of the afternoon. Mil
ler immediately singled for Penn
State—Crawford and Henderson
couldnt help but Mason scored
the midget after he stole second.
Two down in the ninth for Al
bright, Moll singled, stole, and
scored on Hummel's hit.
Things looked gloomy for Penn
State when Keller, first up in the
ninth flied to Moll. Kominarski walk
ed, only to be forced by McKibben,
Hartzler to Moll. Coach Kelchner
had put away his bats—Leibert
had two strikes—Shreffley shot a
straight one over in the groove and
when Hummel and Yost had caught
up with the ball Liebert had cross
ed the plate and the score was
Lieoert then put on steam and
blanked the visitors in the tenth,
but Shreffley was not so lucky.
Liebert's hit had evidently unnerv
ed the lanky visitor.. Crawford
walked, Henderson singled and
Mason was hit. With the bases
full, Shreffley regained control
momentarily and retired Crawford
and Henderson at home on infield
hits by Hittner and Keller to
Hartzler and Pownall respectively.
Then he again failed to locate the
plate and Kominarski walked, forc
ing in Mason with the winning run.
The allround work of Miller,
and Mason with Lei ert's bitting
featured for Penn Stat while Pow
nail and Benfer were -hining lights
for the visitors. Mill r's catch of
Shreffleys long hit t right center
in the tenth saved tro ble for Lieb
ert. Pownall looked Ito be about
the fastest man that has appeared
on Beaver Field for some moons.

The world is wondering whether
college men are going to take the
place of leadership expected of
them. Too much real heart blood
and too much mo•ley is being put
into our colleges if they are but to
give men advantages for selfish
advancement. Where can you find
a better atmosphere for discussing
this great question than that engen
dered by a large group of college
men, meeting in a quiet spot sur
rounded by all natural beauties,
Iworking freely and frankly under
the leadership of sympathetic and
experienced men who have made a
stccess of life. At the Middle At
lantic Conference there is plenty of
time for personal intercourse with
leaders and other college men; time
to be alone; free afternoons for ten
nis, baseball, golf and long
walks—every opportunity for lead
ing a normal life while coming face
to face with the world's greatest
problems. The conference begins
June 13, two days after Commence
ment, and lasts until June 22.
PRICE FIVE CENTS
FRESHMEN WIN SCRAP
The Freshmen Successfully Defend
Their Flag for 15 Minutes.
Scrap is Tame
The new flag scrap between the
freshman and sophomore classes
took place last Saturday in the
presence of a large group of spec
tators. The day proved itself ex
tremely warm for the beginning of
May and a continued stream of
water from the fire hose had to be
played upon the contestants in
order to cool the atmosphere and to
settle the dust in the vicinity of the
The sophomore class, which was
100 yards distant 'rom the pole
hole, at the signal, made a quick
dash for the pole, throwing soot
and flour at its opponents during
the attack. The freshmen immedi
ately after the signal had no diffi
culty in erecting the pole, and at
the same time certain factions of
the class grouped themselves
around the erected pole, while oth
ers endeavored to impede the ad
vance of the sophomores. In a very
few seconds practically all of
the freshmen had found themselves
around the pole, while the sopho
mores made continuous attacks
from without, in order to get near
The main portion of the scrap
was characterized by the lack of
concerted effort on the part of the
1915 men, and by the individual
contests which ensued on the out
tleirti at tne" contest. The scrap in
a way might have been called tame,
because no team work was evident,
and because the fellows persisted in
wrestling around the exterior in
stead of making rushes and concen
trated attempts to reach the pole.
Before the 15 minutes had elaps
ed however, several sophomores had
succeeded in reaching the pole, and
it is difficult to predict what the
outcome of the altercation would
have been had it lasted much long
Although both classes fought
hard for the period, the scrap in
itself proved to be exceedingly one
sided and therefore really of no
special significance or worth. It is
an easy matter for the freshmen to
erect the pole, and no especial skill
is required to prevent the sopho
mores from accomplishing much in
a fifteen minute period. The poor
feature of tearing each others
clothes off, was again prevalent
although this in reality cannot be
avoided in the present manner of
conducting the scrap.
Whether this new form of con
test shall be established for years
to come, will be for the student
body to decide. It is plainly evi
dent however, that no opportunity
is given to the sophomore class to
succeed, and therefore the 15 minute
scrap, with no end in view would
seem foolish. The size of our two
under classes is also an obstacle,
and very probably the flag scrap
and the other scraps will have to go
in the near future.
