Large Squad Reporting Daily
Last Year's Varsity and Sub
stitutes Make Good Showing
Scrimmage the Order of the
Daily Workout
Probably the largest number of
men ever to report for football
practice at Penn State have given
their names to the Blue and White
coaches this fall. To date 101
men have reported on Old Beaver
field, while there are still a few
men of last year's subvarsity, who it
is known, will report. This is one
of the factors that points toward a
successful year again for the Blue
and White eleven. The more men
the coaches have to work and ex
periment with, the more likely are
they to find good men, and the
right man to fill this or that par
ticular place in the making of a
winning combination. It may not
mean a varsity berth for the candi
date, but he must remember that it
takes a strong reserve team and a
strong scrub team to produce a
strong varsity.
Of last year's varsity seven men
remain. These have all reported in
good condition. Of these Bebout,
Clark and Tobin, have been excus
ed from scrimmage thus far, but
Captain Miller, Berryman, Welty,
and Lamb have been literally tear
ing up the scrubs. Of last year's
reserve material several deserve
special mention for the form they
have shown so early in the season.
-Shupe-and Weston have been play
ing strong games at the wing
positions and will no doubt start
the season there. Hartman is
another end candidate who has
been showing good form. At
tackle Lamb and Welling make a
strong pair. The latter has been
excused from much of the scrim
mage. McDowell, tackle on last
year's freshman eleven has been his
substitute, and has been playing
a game that marks him as varsity
material. Allen is another tackle
who is going well. He supplants
weight with fight and grit. Vogel
has been playing regularly at guard
while several men have got a
chance to work in Bebout's place.
Chief among these is Foery, the big
freshman from Northeast Manual
Training school, Philadelphia.
Clark, the big sophomore wrestler,
is also showing the earmarks of a
good lineman. Wood, freshman
fullback of last year is proving a
capable man at center.
Behind the line the fight for
positions will be keen for material
is plentiful. Of course Miller,
Berryman, Welty and Tobin make
a complete backfield ,of varsity
men. But one set of backs will not
be sufficient for this year's sched
ule. There should be another com
plete set. Barron, back , again be
hind the line is showing the quality
that made him a regular in his
freshman year. James is substitut
ing for Miller at quarter. Vogt
and Craig are stocky backs of tried
qualities. Clark, the big fullback
from Harrisburg High looks good.
His usefulnness is increased a great
deal by his ability to punt. Quirk,
a senior, who made a strong bid for
a varsity berth at halfback in his
Freshman year, is another good ad
dition. He is big and fast. Yer
ger is another rangy half who looks
good, while in the last few scrim
mages, Dippe. a new candidate
from the sophomore class has
Captdin Robinson Commends Show
ing of Regiment.
Captain J. P. Robinson, of the
General Staff of the United States
Army, who inspected the regiment
of Penn State cadets last May, did
not make as extended a report as
have some of his predecessors. It
will be remembered that the in
spection was short.
The inspector says that the facul
ty attaches quite a high degree of
importance to military instruction;
that the military spirit is evident to
a considerable extent in the daily
life of the students; that the gener
al appearance of the cadets was
"very good"; that the officers
would furnish excellent'and intelli
gent material for military service;
that the military detail is accepta
ble to the college authorities; that
all equipment was found in excel
lent condition; and that provision
should be made for a larger armory
and for detailing two officers in
stead of one to handle the large
number of men in drill.
shown far above average ability in
carrying the ball. There are sever
al other men who have done good
work in the little chance given them
but more time will be required be
fore even a prediction can ventured
as to their strength.
It might prove interesting to
know the names of men who are
giving their time and energy to de
velop a strong team. Hereafter is
the list according to classes: 1914

The Stamp Club
Last year an organization known
as the Stamp Club was founded by
several students and instructors.
The purpose of the club is to help
stamp collectors meet one another,
to make for sociability among them
and to furnish assistance in collect
ing. Toward this end the club will
hold its first meeting for the year
at 7:30 Friday evening at Prof.
Diemer's residence, West campus.
All stamp collectors, first year or
old men, should attend.
The cadet regiment this year bids
fair to be the largest of all. Both
lower classes are high in numbers
and, with officers, there will proba
bly be more than eleven hundred
men drilling.

Candidates Start Work. Outlook
Bright for Gooe Team.
The regular fall piactice foi la-
crosse has started under the direc-
tion of Captain and ..roach Fancy
Prospects are bright' when viewed
from any point. Ne er has a new
ly introduced game taken better at
'Penn State. Last ye3t's games re
ceived the financial support of the
student body that makes a sport
possible, so that one big item of
doubt has been removed. Most of
last year's team ate in college
and should form a s'rong nucleus
for the coming year Haitowei,
Mendenhall, Erhar , Atkinson,
Reel, Meixnet and WiLon were lost
last June. Wilson's loss will he
felt most, because of the fact that
he was an experienced and season
ed player. He played brilliantly
in last year's contests. allele re

Practice this fall will be held on
the East campus back of McAllis
ter Hall, Because of the tact that
the sport is just being introduced,
many new men should repot t.
There is no doubt that lacrosse
will be made a recular vatsity
spott and thus,. wit,,ttn t e.ll I y will
stand the best chance. '1 hc, class
of 1916 is especially weak in the
number of men that have repot led,
and at least a dozen sophomores
should report this fall.
Besides the home games next
year, three good hips are possible
although not more than two ate
likely to be allowed. Pet mission
to make these trips will be based
largely upon the amount of interest
taken as shown by the number of
men who report for the team. A
large squad will insure a strong
team and at the same time make
trips possible. The three possibili
ties, are: first, one including games
at Lehigh, Swarthmore and Penn
sylvania; second. Bronx, Stevens
and Harvard; third, Navy, Mt.
Washington and Johns Hopkins.
The freshman class ought to fur
nish some experienced men as well
as a large numbet of candidates
new to the game. Come out and
give this new ideal Penn State sport
your physical support. Men can
leave orders fot sticks at an: office
of the Athletic Association or see

1915-1917 Civil Feed
On Saturday evening, September
26, the Junior Civils followed the
custom set by the class of 1905 in
giving the Freshmen Civils a cider
feed. This feed is held every two
years, so that only classes having
odd numerals participate. This
year the juniors and freshmen met
at the Engineering Building and
from there proceeded out West
College avenue to the woods near
Pine Hall. A giant bonfire was
built and the Civils gathering
around upon the ground listened to
stories of daring and pluck told by
the upperclassmen. Refreshments
consisted of cider, pretzels and
"smokes" and the freshmen we! e
shown a royal good time.
Scope of Spoi 04 Extended to Reach
The Depai talent of Physica
Education has extensive plans foi
broadening the scope of studen .
At present one feature
at least is a certainty. As outlined
by Dilectot . Lewis the plan, briefly,
is as follows—The department will
maintain lacrosse, field hockey,
soccer and basketball as "recreative
student athletics", and will tempor
arily equip and and spend time in
coaching any teams who will agree
upon a date for a game. Any
man may feel flee to organize
teams—the teams may represent
clubs, fiaternities, dot mitct ies, or
nothing in particular; the only thing
lecniiied to allow the men to receive
coaching and equipment will be
two opposing teams and a date
agreed upon for a game.
Men out for varsity or minor
sports teams will be barred, as the
purpose of the plan is to give the
average student an opportunity to
engage in athletics. No man need
consider himself of insufficient abil
ity, for this is the man who should
by all means grasp this advantage.
Die department will soon be able
to early this idea into effect, and
ituthei pin tioulars may be obtained
mom Mm. Lewis.
Former Dean of Engineering Schoo
Successful Labor Commissioner.
Pt of. John Mice Jackson, until
Defy : of -the Si hoot of En
gineeting, has already accomplish
ed a great deal in his new position
as gate commissioner of labor.
Although he has been in office but
a shalt time, he has cleat ly demon
strated that what the state needs in
betteting labor conditions is not
more work shop laws to encumber
the statute books, but a system of
rigid enforcement of the tegulations
already in existence.
Moreover, Prof. Jackson is taking
particular pains to make manufac
turers understand that it is the pur
pose of the labor commission, not
to dictate unbearable tides to the
shop opetators, but merely to safe
guard the health of the shop work
ers, a condition which cannot fail to
benefit both. His attitude is clear
ly shown by his recent appeal for
While Dean Jackson now has no
direct shale in the management of
his school, the college is fortunate
in still having his set vices as aclvis
ot y dean, with prospect', of his te
wining at some future time.
Glee Club Picks Men
I Prof. Robinson is taking up work
with the glee club in his usual
enthusiastic way, and trials for
positions were held on Monday and
Tuesday evenings. Many new men
have been declared eligible, and
soon the entire membership of fifty
will be completed. Owing to
the fact that the committee of
judges have been busily engaged in
picking new men, no rehearsal will
be held at the regular time this
week, that is, Wednesday evening,
but a late' date may be announced.
A small suiplus remains in the
club tieastny, ❑ncl this is very en
couraging when the expense of last
yew's activity is considered.

Large Squad Responds to First
Call -New Men Promise Well
Training Starts at Once—More
Trials to Follow
Fifty freshmen resporded to
Coach Martin's first try outs Satur
day afternoon on New Beaver hack
and from the marks made in the
various events it must he said that
they were the best freshman squad
that has ever reported at this time
of the year.
In nearly every event several
contestants were found and in no
case was the competition for first
honors one sided.
The distance runners wee espe
cially good. Hunter won the mile
at 4:53 while Garlin took the half
with ease at 2:06.
Page, a Pittsburg boy, cleared 10
feet in good form, in the pole vault,
with Berlew a good second.
In the jumps, Kram and Welty,
excelled in the broad, Stephens
and Dunbar placing first and sec
ond in the high. For the weight
events Custer appeared the most
promising man.
Walker, Alve and Schovley per
formed best in the shop t dashes
while Lewis Stone and Humble
captured places in the quarter mile.
This was but the first of a series
of similar trials that will be held
each Saturday afternoon until furth
er notice. These trials provide an
excellent means for a freshman to
substitute track work for thin if in
the_estimation_ of the _ coach, he
gives promise. It is important also
that new men, who have as yet not
come out, do so at once as it will
enable both the men to get the full
benefit of the fall training'and will
aid the coach in his selection for
varsity material the spring. Don't
forget freshman, 1:20 p. m. Satur

Varsity Cross Country.
Last year on the same day that
our football team beat Penn., our
cross country team upheld the
name of Old State at Philadelphia
by adding another victory to our
list, thus helping to make that uni
versity bow to a double defeat in
one day. Now fellows, great things
are looked for in the college run
ning circles. All men who have
ability in long distance running ai e
urged to come out. New men ale
especially requested to present
themselves no matter how inex
pei ienced. Old men need no call.
All candidates for cross country,
ieport immediately to Coach
Martin or to the captain o' the
track team, either at New Beaver
or the Track House.
Regular practice will start on
Friday of this week, with Coaches
Martin, Wright, and Lum to oversee
the running, which we all hope will
result in even a more successful
Class Scrap Ruling
It will be remembered that a stu
dent ruling passed last year pro
hibits from entering class scraps
any man affected with skin diseases
or other communicable ailments.
The officials will prohibit any such
men from entering the push ball
scrap this Saturday, insofar as they
are able. As a precautionary
measure, however, all unclerclai s
men who have any symptoms of
disease should report to Physical
Directoi Lewis in the armory for an
