VOLUME 9 NUMBER 30
Rain Prevents Fast Track—Armsby
Smashes His Previous Record in
With a muddy field and a driz
zling rain falling State outclassed
the Indian track team in a dual
meet at Carlisle, Saturday. The
score was 75 to 37.
The strength of our team was
well demonstrated in this meet as
well as the efficient work done by
our coach, for Carlisle is, by most
authorities, considered to have the
second strongest collegiate track
team in Pennsylvania.
Our men proved superiors in
every department, taking ten firsts
out of the possible fourteen. The
Indians took the broad jump, low
hurdles, mile run and tied in the
pole vault with Maybee.
Piner again was the mainstay in
the dashes winning the 220,
quarter mile, and taking sec
ond in the 100 yard dash. White,
in this event, won with a mark of
10 seconds flat.
Hammitt took a first and second
in the hurdles winning the high
hurdlest-in 16 seconds on a wet
track. Squirrel of Carlisle, how
ever, outran him in the longer run
winning in 26 seconds.
The feature of the meet was the
performance of Armsby in the high
jump who cleared with a good mar
gin the bar at 6 feet 1 inch. Arms
by's work thus far bids fair to
stamp' lan as oneof•theemost valu

Penn State to be Represented at
President E. E. Sparks, Dean J.
P. Jackson, and Prof. M. S. Mc-
Dowell left on Monday for Madi
son, Wis., where, with numerous
other delegations from this state
they are making a study of the
university extension system at the
University of Wisconsin. Other
visitors at Madison are Mayor
Blankenburg, of Philadelphia;
Provost Smith, of Penn; besides
many others from educational in
stitutions and cities of all parts of
the state—notably a Philadelphia
delegation of over one hundred.
The trip to Wisconsin has been
planned by the City Club of Phila
delphia, and the large number of
delegates is evidence that the
officers of a city government and of
state educational institutions are
fully appreciative of an opportunity
to study the highly developed
efficiency of a western institution.
Dean Louis E. Reber, of the
Wisconsin University Extension
Division, who, by the way, was
formerly an instructor at Penn
State, has brought about a con
dition such that in Wisconsin, bet
ter than anywhere else, the edu
cational institution of the people
and the government of the people
are securely associated for the
public welfare. It is this "Wiscon
sin idea" which the Pennsylvania
delegation is so anxious to study.
A Victory and a Defeat on Trip

On last weeks trip the varsity
tennis team met Penn and Swarth
more—against the former, all the
matches were lost by Penn State
except one—singles which Nevin

formance of the team was more
successful, and three of the four
singles played were won, while
rain prevented the finish of the
doubles. The men did not meet

Carnegie Tech Downed With Leib
art Strong in Pinches Wardwell
Pitches Good Gallo Against
Notre Dame, But Support is Poor.
Penn State downekl Carnegie
Tech in one of the mo& interesting
games of the year. Liebert and
Hoerr had a pitching dim.] in which
the latter allowed less ;hits but the
former fared better be4use of his
steadiness and excellent support.
The local twirler had fine control
and not a visitor received free pass
age to the first station,'4while three
of the visitors hits were of the
scratch variety. Three iat the locals
hits figured in the run 'getting and
two of these were extra-base
The Penn State infield played the
best game seen on Newißeaver this
year. Hittner led in the defense,
handling ten chances cleanly. Kel
ler and McKibben broke up rallies
by getting away with some hard
chances while Mason covered the
initial sack faultlessly. Shorty Mil
ler also came in for his usual bril
liant play, when he captured Moore
head's fly in the seventh just back
of second base.
Penn State scored first in the
second and won the game then and
there. Hittner struck out but Kel
ler hit to center for three bases.
Moorehead's low throw home put
Keller over and McKibben went all
the way to third on: the error.
Vogt immediately shot a single to
right scoring McKibben, but was
caught 'off — first -- blr a nifiefr"aild.
Leibert went the Gearhart-Moore
head route for the final out. The
visitors tallied their lone run in the
third. Gearhart and Brien played
well for Tech.
Summary: Left on base—Penn
State 8, Carnegie Tech 5. Two
base hit—Henderson. Three base
hit—Keller. Stolen bases—Craw
fore, Hoerr. Strike outs—By Leib
ert 7; Hoerr 5. Bases on balls—Off
Liebert, none; Hoerr 5. Wild
pitch—Hoerr. Time of game-1
hr. 40 min.
Penn State lost a slow game
Monday afternoon to Notre Dame.
Wardwell deserved a victory, but
his team mates gave him ragged
support both on the defense and
offense. The visitors defense also
showed signs of crumbling but Kel
ly either came to the rescue per
sonally or the fatal error remained
uncommitted when Blue and White
men were on the paths. On the
offense, however, they never falter
ed, but took all kinds of chances
and generally got away with them.
Twelve men left on base tells the
Blue and White defeat from an
offensive standpoint. The neces
rary hit was not forthcoming when
there was a chance to win.
A Blue and White rally in the
sixth produced two runs. Miller
hit and stole, and hits by Hender
son and Mason with an error in
centre field and a passed ball put
two runs over. Regan opened the
visitor seventh . with a two base hit
and completed the circuit on errors
by Crawford and McKibben.
There was much gloom in the
Blue and White camp after the
seventh: for Penn State here lost a
golden opportunity to win. Mc-
Kibben singled, Vogt hit for two
bases, Wardwell struck out. Mil
ler hoisted a high fly over fiirst and
stood still while Newing, Kelley,
Farrel, and Mills gathered round to
Y 21, 1913
watch the ball drop untouched in
safe territory. Of course Shorty
was out. Crawford walkcd but
Henderson struck out. In the
ninth a momentary rally produced
a run. Crawford hit for three
bases, Henderson singled. Mills
caught Mason's long fly to right
and Lathrop, who replaced Regan
in left when the latter sprained his
ankle at third base in the seventh,
took care of Hittner. Keller forced
Henderson and the game was over.
Hittner and Vogt played well
for the Blue and White, the latter
especially giving Wardwell the
best of support behind the plate.

LACROSSE WITH PENN
State Plays Red and Blue on Beav
er Field Saturday. Good Game
Assured. Necessity of Large At-
On Saturday afternoon at one
thirty, New Beaver Field will be
the scene of Penn State's initial
lacrosse match. Not only will the
students and town people be en
abled to see the first intercollegiate
lacrosse game ever played in ;tate
College, but they will at the same
time witness the first appearance of
a University of Pennsylvania team
on Beaver Field. The management
has been fortunate in securing our
greatest rival for our opponents on
Saturday afternoon, and they are
desirous of having a big crowd out
to welcome Penn, and to "root"
for our own team.
This game will be our first test.
The team has slowly developed,
and has been compelled to contend
with a great many obstacles. Lack
of a proper field for practice; the
smallness of the squad; the fact
that most of the men were green,
and that no coach was available; all
these factors have made progress
slow. The men have worken hard;
they have expended their own
money in equipping themselves,
with no surety that they would
even get in a game. They get no
insignia, they get no trips, they are
all out working for the sake of the
sport and for the College. For
the underclassmen the probability
of their "making good".624teatn
otfuture years, the feeling that the"
sport is sure to succeed, urges them
on. The men want every student
to come out on Saturday, and see
if lacrosse is not worthy of support.
Let all be there to decide whether
lacrosse is with us to stay, or not.
To bring a team of fourteen men
from Philadelphia requires a liberal
guarantee, and that guarantee must
must be raised out of the receipts
of the game. The team must have
the support of the student body in
order to go through the season to a
successful termination. Tickets
are but twenty-five cents each, and
will be on sale at the Athletic Store
on Thursday and Friday evenings,
6:30-8:30 p. m. You will get a
real game for your quarter-dollar—
lacrosse is not a gentle sport.
Pennsylvania has played several
games this season, while State has
played none. Pennsylvania has
the service of a professional coach,
we have none. Therefore, it will
be with a handicap that our team
goes on the field on Saturday.
Perhaps we can overcome if, but
the team will want the student
body behind them when they face
off on Beaver Field. Come out
and give them the backing they
The team which will represent
State on Saturday will be picked
from the following squad of men:
Mendenhall, Ehrhart, Reel, At
kinson, Harrison, Meixner, Har
rower (1913); Peters, Fuller, Gal
lager, Johnson, Savery (1914);
Mehard, Smith, Bear, Cuno,Kinney,
Munhall, Burns, Farley (1915);
Olmstead, Fisher, Hewett, (1916);
Wilson and Gill (Specials).

reception at Penn State by attend
