VOLUME 9 NUMBER 31
WINS THE FIRST GAME
Penn State Defeats Red and Blue
in First Game of La Crosse on
New Beaver Field—Crowd En-
Penn State introduced La Crosse
as a Varsity sport by winning the
first game from the University of
Pennsylvania on Saturday on New
Beaver Field by a 4 to 3 score.
To say that the process of plant
ing the germ which produces love
of the sport in the veins of the sons
of old Penn •State was a success, is
putting it mildly. Every mother's
son immediately made the pledge
to himself that he'd be at the
next game. This fact practically
assures the success of La Crosse at
Penn State from a financial stand
point. From the players stand
point, we predict that interest is
almost equally keen. There's no
doubt that next year the squad will
be much larger and that Penn State
will soon be fighting for premier
honors in La Crosse.
There's enough action in the
game to suit the worst radical, and
the conservative may try out for
goal defender. The "bean ball"
and "fade away" or "hook" slide in
baseball, together with the "taking
out from behind" in football are in
many ways not at all superior to
the good healthy swing of a La
Crosse stick. The ability of the
player to dodge is much more
important (to himself) than is the
same ability in football.
„_. Saturday's game fully demon
strated that La Crosse demands a
great deal of science or skill in the
individual player, and that there is
plenty of chance for the individual
to star as well as for team work to
make itself very evident. Fleet
ness of foot is another requisite.
To sum up, the chance for serious
accident is less than in football
while there still remains enough
action to satisfy the "noblest
Roman of them all”. ..
Although team 'j)rai 'was not
lacking, nevetheless, Penn State
won because of the "pepper" and
aggressiveness of her representa
tives. During the first period the
ball was kept most of the time in
Red and Blue territory and only the
great defensive work of Parker
saved Pennsylvania from a one
sided score. The visitors reached
Penn State territory but few times
and on two of these occasions scor
ed, the last goal being made after
time had benn called and failing to
count. Wilson scored first for the
locals after about ten minutes of
hard play and Mehard tallied soon
afterward. A little later Seaver
made the only Red and Blue goal
of the period.
In the second period Killgore
scored for Penn, tying the score,
but their chance was short lived,
for Gallagher got one in the net and
was soon followed by a beautiful
shot by Farley. The visitors were
closely covered during the rest of
the game, and could score but one
more goal, McCloud making a hard
shot just a short time before the
end of the period.
Johnston ably defended goal,
Peters, Gill and Smith covered their
men well, while the aggressive work
of Munhall and Cuno helped much
toward victory. Erhart and Olm
stead played consistently, being
replaced in the latter stages by
Atkinson and Harrower, respective
ly. Erhart had to leave the game
because of injuries sustained in a
collision with Gill. Penn State's
attack was especially strong. Me
hard and Gallager were always in
the thickest of the fray and dis
played good stick work. Wilson
and Farley proved to be the stars
of the game. They were in every
advance, their passing and receiving
sure, accurate, and often brilliant.
They showed the possibilities of La
Crosse, due to experience.
For the visitors Parker was the
individual star, receiving and staving
off the brunt of the Blue and White
attack. Hussa was fast on his feet,
the little centre getting away for
long advances quite often. Mc-
Cloud, Seaver and Killgore put up
good games but were not fed
enough by the work of their fellow
players on defense. The line-up:

Freshmen Win Debate
The gladiators of the class of
1916 propounded a series of
such strong and persuasive
arguments the other evening,
that they succeeded in overwhelm
ing the sophomores to the tune
Although the debate was more
hotly contested this year, than in
the previous year, it was probably
just as one sided. The freshmen
seemed to have chosen the most
weighty arguments, and seemed to
have put them forth in a concise
and systematic manner. All credit
due to 1916 for winning one more

New Cigarette Law
The new cigarette law which was
recently passed by our legislature
is now in effect. This bill provides
that any person who shall furnish
to any minor by gift, sale or other
wise any cigarette or cigarette
paper, shall be guilty of a misde
meanor and upon conviction there
of shall be sentenced to pay a fine
of not less than $lOO.
Although we are situated in a
community in which the hand of
the law is not very apparent, and in
which it is not felt very often, this
new statute may enhance the activi
ties of the authorities. All fresh
men and all other students under
the age of 21 years are by this
measure specifically prevented
from buying cigarettes or from pro
The statute also provides that
any minor being in possession of
a cigarette paper or cigarette,
who shall refuse to tell where he
got it shall be guilty of a misde
meanor, and shall be subject to a
fine not exceeding $5 and to im
prisonment not exceeding five

campus henceforth is, Are you,
twenty-one? If the answer is
"Yes", a cigarette is forthcoming,
and if the answer is "No", the poor
minor will have to have recourse to
Cubeb Cigarettes, and even then he
is under suspicion. ,
Fraternities and class societies of
Cornell have instituted a campaign
against certain social clubs which
exist at Ithaca. These clubs must
have some detrimental features or
the resolutions which have been
passed would not have materialized
Nine fraternities came out in open
and declared that they would not
allow any of their members to join
any socities defined as undesirable
by the Senior soceties and
further said that present mem
bers should resign immediately.
The Junior Honorary Society passed
a resolution declaring that any
sophomore who is a member of one
of these clubs after a certain date
shall be ;neligible to membership
in this society.
What the exact criticisim to
these clubs \ is, it is difficult
to ascertain, but as such concerted
action has ensued it is evident
that some deitimental character
istics must have been prevalent.
It is generally thought that this
