PENN STATE VOLUME 10 NUMBER 8 OLD PENN TRIUMPHS Outweighed and Outplayed, State Loses to a More Experienced Captain Miller the Star Eleven Three State men played their last game on Franklin Field last Satur day and it was because of their fight that the Penn score was so small. Shorty Miller has received honorable mention perhaps in every game he has played for State. Penn knew his ability and were coached to watch him. Wherever Shorty was there would be three Penn men. But this did not phase the game's greatest quarterback. He slipped, skidded, wormed and squirmed his way along, often carrying a couple of men with him. No man on the opposing team was within twenty pounds of his weight; yet he had to be tackled by three men. Finally, fearing that he would repeat his run of 1911, Minds was ordered to kick out of bounds. Perhaps Stevenson was a greater player than Miller because hurdling was allowed but the game has changed. Could Stevenson have thrown passes, kicked, run and in jected as much fire into his players as Miller? We doubt it. His familiar "Let's go", "Come ou gang", Where's that old fight?", all had its effect on a disheartened team. "Big" Clark also was at Philadel phia for the last time. He played against Simpson who is mentioned as a possibility for All-American center. Greater centers there may have been but no man ever played the position better than Clark on Saturday. On the defense he blocked end plays and often threw men for losses. On the offense he was a giant. Often after passing the ball to Shorty he would go down under a punt and tackle the receiver ahead of the ends. Bebout was the third of the sen ior class' wonderful trio. When line plunging plays are iesorted to, it is difficult to see just who stop ped the play. However, not in frequently when a Penn man was thrown for a loss, did Bebout get up last, indicating that he was the tackler. The Penn line was reput ed to be exceedingly strong but Bebout often was able to break through and make open field tack les. From a Penn State standpoint the best part of the game was the second half, particularly the last quarter. In this half State made five first downs to Penn's none. Penn scored but three points in this half and this was due to a costly fumble. In the fourth quarter after Mar shall had missed a field goal, State started a wonderful series of passes. Clark lost a yard on a line plunge through Carter. Miller threw an incomplete pass but a second one made first down on thirty-yard line. A third pass failed. Shorty gained four around end and then threw a pass to Welling who carried the ball to Penn's forty-yard line. The Penn players were bewildered not seeming to know who was eli gible for the pass. Weston caught another forward which gained twen ty yards and put the ball on Penn's twenty-yard line. Miller gained two through center. A pass over the line gave Penn the ball on her twenty-yard line. On the fourth down Minds fumbled and it was State's ball on Penn's twenty-yard line. H. Clark made three yards at center. Tobin then forward passed to Miller who carried three men to the eight-yard line. Clark gained one yard and Miller three through center. With the ball four yards from a State touchdown a forward pass ended the chances. Penalties cost State much in the first quarter. In the first few minutes of play Berryman was dis qualified and the ball given to Penn 'on State's thirty six yard line, This act of Berryman weakened the offense and defense on the team considerably. Marshall gained three yards but Penn was penalized fifteen for holding. Bolger gained fourteen yards at left tackle and Marshall tried a field goal which failed. State kicked to Penn on her forty yard line. Marshall gain ed eleven yards at left end and then Big Clark recovered a fumble. State then carried the ball to Penn's forty yard line where Miller kicked to Penn's twenty yard line. Minds kicked to Shorty who made a beautiful run to Penn's thirty yard line but State had been holding and the ball was placed on States thirty yard line. Bolger caught a short kick on State forty-eight yard line. A forward pass gained thirty yards. Young gained eight around left end and two through Center. With the ball on State's eight yard line Bolger added one yard through center. On a delayed pass Young went around right end for a touch down. Marshall kicked the goal. Plays through States left tackle and a delayed .fake forward made the second. touchdown for Penn. The line Penn State Bloom 1 e Wood Harris 1 t McDowell Carter 1 g Bebout Simpson c J.

Honor System Re-established By an almost unanimous vote by the two upper classes, the Honor System was re-established in the school of Electrical Engineering. Last year marked the first year within a period of thirteen years in which the Junior Electricals failed to follow in the footsteps of the preceding class in adopting this system, and the action taken this year by both classes may be directly traced to the splendid results wnich have been accom plished under it, five iulfraccions only having occurred since its adoption. Such action speaks well for the men of the department of the School of Engineering, and similar action on the part of other departments might •sell be con sidered. l. : ? 4 t :111 . lAII, V e‘re Scat •rt' ; : pmr J;11, STATE COLLEGE, PA., NOVEMBER 5, 1913 BRIGHT PROSPECTS FOR GLEE CLUB Quartette to Go to Panama, Decem ber 17 - Glee Club to Hold Joint Concert With Pitt Thanksgiv- Professor C. C. Robinson has , just completed arrangements and negotiations whereby the college quartette and reader will take a trip to Panama during the Christn•as vacation. It is the intention of the party to leave college about the 15th of December and travel to New York. Here, it is being plan ned to hold a concert for the New York Alumni and sail on the steam ship Colon for Panama about De cember 17. Upon Airiving at Christohel they will become the guests of the U. S. Y. M. C. A. and give concerts en-tour at their eight club houses, returning on Jan uary 13. The original plan was to take along the whole glee club and make a tour similar to the Sante Fe trip last year. This, however, was impossible as it is customary for the Y. M. C. A. to entertain par ties of not more than six. This trip means considerable not only to the glee club 1 but to the whole college as well. As the main body of men in the canal zone to day are college graduates— oui alumni being well reprelented—the party will be receix ed with open arms and if a favorable impression is made, it will bring Penn State be fore the eyes of the public. The party will include Leyden, Keister, Vail, Austin and Professor and Mrs. Robinson. Negotiations are now under way whereby the glee club may take a return trip over the Sante I. , 'e rail road again this year. However, as no club has yet made the trip on two consecutive years it is highly improbable that they will be again awarded the privilege of being the guests of the railroad. The usual joint concert given by the musical organizations of the University of Pittsburgh and Penn State in Carnegie Music Hall on Thanksgiving will be held again this year. As both clubs have im proved wonderfully in the past year an exceptionally good concert can be expected. This year the freshmen have or ganized a quartette and have also arranged tor several trips. So far engagements have been secured with Lock Haven Normal and a similar concert at Hasting. The quartette is composed of White, first tenor; Wilkins, baritone; Hen derson, second tenor, and Cope, second bass. Another new feature connected with Professor Robinson's depart ment has been the organization of a girls chorus consisting of thirty-five members. They have been re hearsing constantly and are gradu ally developing into a first class chorus. On Pennsylvania Day they will present themselves for the first time betore an audience. A joint concert by the glee club, quartette, mandolin club and orchestra will be given in the audi torium on November 9 at 8 30. An exceptional program has been arranged and a rare musical treat can be expected. On November 12 the quartette will give a concert before the Cen ter County Teachers' Institute at Bellefonte. One month later they /!, /F. L ;ER Y, TilE PA. r. 11412, COLL COI ,LEG c 0,., will give the same entertainment they intend to produce on the Pan ama trip berme a local audience just pi ior to their departure. Thus the outlook this year for the quartette and glee club is ex ceedingly bright. rhe club repre sents the pick of over two hundred men and is under the leadership of J. A. Leyden. Student Conference at Wilson The Annual Student Missionary Conference of the Eastern Union of Student Volunteers will be held at Wilson College, Chambersburg, on November 21, 22, and 23. A dele gation from our college will attend. Those who attended the conference at Princeton last year can testify as to the value of such a conference. Among the speakers foi the Wilson Conference will be: George Sher wood Eddy, Copen, J. Ross Steven son, Isaac T. Headland, Mrs Potter. Wilbuit Smith, Turner and George Heber Jones. All who are interested in this matter and desire to attend this conference will please call at the Y. M. C. A. rooms within the next week so that definite arrangements can be made. The only expense connected with the conference for the delegates will be that of travel. The students at Wilson have plan ned to arrange for the entertain ment of the delegates while at Wil son during the conference, provid ing that the committee in cl arge is advised by November 5. This leaves us very little time so call at the office as soon as possible if you are planning to go. With the Players "The White Mouse" the comedy which will be presented by the Y. W. C. A. on Saturday evening, November 7, is a play which has been adopted from the French of Edouarcl Pailleron by Donald Rob ertson. It is a play which has in it the elements which go toward in creasing and holding the interest of the audience, and it is full of bril liant, humorous and ridiculous situations, as well as of that touch of sympathy which makes the whole world kin. It brings the de lightful chateau district of Fiance to our very doors. Tickets will be on sale the business office on Wednesday even ing, November 5 from i:45 to 8, also at the box office in riae audi torum on Saturday evening. The play will begin promptly at 8 15 p. m. Dr. Holmes' Lectures Dean Holmes will be kept busy during the next few weeks in filling numerous lecture engagements in Pennsylvania and the middle west. The general theme of most of his addresses will be "Character Mak ing", On October 31, Dr. Holmes spoke before the Michigan Teach er's Association Institute at Ann Arbor Mich.; from November 3-7 he will fill engagements with the Ohio Institute Citcuit, Novembth . 8 he will address the Cincinnatti Wo men's Club, Cincinnatti, 0,; Novem ber 10, Teacher's Institute, Lock Haven; November 11-13, County Instituter Bellefonte; November 26 28, County Institute, Somerset; December 2-4, County Institute, Monessen. An exhibit of safety devices and appliances will be displayed in the Engineering Building on Pennsyl vania Day. PRICE FIVE CENTS PENNA. DAY DOINGS Many Pi ominent Men to be Het e List of Events is Provided Fur. In all the history of Penn State, Pennsylvania Day has stood out more prominently than almost any other day throughout the college year. This is not perhaps so much because of its historical tienifi- cance, but rather because of its social significance in bringing to gether here a brilliant assemblage of government and state clignitaties for the purpose of participating in exercises commemorating the founding of this institution. Pennsylvania Day this year will lack none of those things which have made it a clay to he temem bet ed in the past. A vaned pt o gram will be observed, and :tom present indications its fulfillment will be fully as enjoyable as those which have preceded it. At nine o'clock, Friday morning, the Agricultural Fair will open its doors on Old Beaver Field. At ten o'clock the cadet regiment will be reviewed by General Albert J. Logan, of Pittsburgh. All are re quested to assemble in the Audi torium at eleven o'clock, where His Excellency Mu za Ali Kuli Khan, Persian Minister to the United States. will deliver an address on some present day topic, 't hich will be of interest to both student and visitor alike In the alternnon at three o'clock Penn State hill meet Notre Dame in football on New Beaver At tom tnuty the (loots of the Fait will again be opened to visitors and students the Senior ASSeiti bly will be held in the Aimoty at eight o'clock in the evening. E‘eiy student in this institittion is urged to gRe his support, and to lend his pi escnce to every one of the e‘irts on the pingiam. They ale all college happenings, and theiefole let the whole college at tend them, and participate in them. Every individual is especially re quested to be piesent at the mass meeting in the Auditorium at 11 o'clock. .1 he Agricultural Fah will be closed horn 10:45 to 12, so as to allow all visitors to attend the mass meeting. Let us give our guests and visitors an idea how large the student body really is. Notre Dame's Prospects. Notre Dame will bring here next Friday one of the strongest teams to be found throughout the middle west. Thus far Note Dame has played four games, winning all of them by decisive scores. Ohio Northern University was defeated 87 to 0, the strong University of South Dakota team 20 to 7, Alma College 62 to 0, and the Army eleven 35 to 13. Since Notre Dame has adopted the Western Conference !tiles, and freshmen are not playing on the varsity, they will have an equal showing with the Conference elev en for the western championship. Already western football critics have mentioned that the western championship lies with the Univer sity of Nebraska, Notre Dame and the Michigan Aggies, all teams of high calibre which have as yct lost no games this season. 'lwo None Dame players were placed on the All-Western team last yeas and sev eral others were mentioned for sec ond choice.
