Great Results From Week of Ef-
fort—Powerful Speakers Present
Among Body of 50.
Standing room only in the Audi
torium for five nights; 530 men
signing cards as desirous of leading
more aggressive Christian lives; 10
men pledging themselves to serv
ice in the foreign mission fields,
making a total of 22 for that pur
pose; and hundreds more taking
advantage of the privilege to secure
personal interviews with the various
men available: these are some of
the accomplishments of the great
Y. M. C. A. campaign held in State
College last week.
The names of the many fine
Christian men who carried on the
campaign, chief among whom was
Dr. Sherwood Eddy, are familiar to
all. Especially noteworthy was
the Princeton delegation of seven
men, who comprised the largest
representation of undergraduates
from any one institution, other col
leges furnishing 18 men. Twenty
five more made up the 50 present
during the week, while among those
in attendance during part of the
week were H. Walton Mitchell and
Commissioner of Labor John Price
Jackson. The entire group was
made up of men especially fitted to
bring before men the practical
religious problems of the day, men
whose success vouches for the prin
ciples for which they stand.
Meetings were planned to reach
every man. , At the great college
meetings held” in the Auditorium
each night, the following subjects
were dwelt upon: “Ambition",
“Doubt”, "The Fight For Charact
er”, "The Greatest Christian in the
World", The Greatest Work in the
World”. But there were other
meetings; at least 450 men attended
the “Life Work Conferences”; there
were meetings of fraternities, de
partments, each contributing to the
general success of the whole.

Penn State Wrestlers Outclass
Naval Academy Team in an In
teresting Meet —Lamb Surprises
Navy Contingent.
On, Saturday afternoon the Penn
State wrestling team put away a
victory in its first meet of the sea
son by winning five of the seven
bouts from the strong Naval Aca
demy team, The score in points
was 12 to 5, three points being
credited to a fall and two points for
decision. A large crowd witnessed
the meet, which was held in con
junction with a gymnastic meet be
tween Navy and New York Uni
versity and a fencing match with
Harvard opposing Na /y.
The Blue and White alone was
victorious over the Middies, in the
contest around which nearly all the
interest of the crowd centered.
Shorty Long, wrestling in the
bantam weight class, started the
ball rolling by winning after twelve
minutes of hard clean wrestling
against Haugh for the Navy. The
heavy weight bout was called next
and here Navy received one of the
surprises of the meet.' Howe, the
giant football guard, went to the
mat oa top of Lamb but could stay
there for a few seconds only.
Lamb immediately became the ag
gressor and in less than three min
utes had Howe tied up in a com
bined back Nelson and leg lock,
which resulted in a fall similar to
a cradle hold. 1

Blue and White, Crockett met
Wyatt in the special weight class.
Both men were aggressive and
worked fast for the first half of the
allotted time, when Crockett by
some of the quickest work of the
meet took advantage of an opening
to secure a neck lock combined
with a body hold. His opponent
fought hard and long but was
finally forced to the mat.
Kirk in the light weight class
proved another surprise to the
Navy. In Hoops he met one of
the Navy veterans, who was count
ed upon to win. He rushed Kirk
from the start but could not stand
the pace and for the final six min
utes of the bout was at the mercy
of the lanky Penn State man, Kiik
winning easily on decision.
Gladden, another man on the
Navy team of much experience,
won the first points for his team,
when he secured a fall from
Hill by using a combined near and
far nelson with a wrist lock, which
proved as effective as a double
nelson but could not be classed as
such. Brodfoot brought Navy the
rest of her points by winning from
Yerger in nine minutes in one of the
closest and hardest fought bouts of
the meet.
The most interesting as well as
most desperate contested bout oc
curred in the light heavyweight
class, when Sayre met Ward. The
Penn State man showed greater
knowledge of the game and im
mediately became the aggressor.
He secured near falls from various
holds, but could not overcome the
wonderful gameness of the Navy
matman, who prevented a fall by
withstanding a great deal of punish
The Blue and White team re
ceived the best of tieatment at the
hands of the Midshipment and
were given a rousing oration by
them at the time of departure.

Refree,Lynch, of Baltimore.
Timers, Jones, Penn State, Stecker,
Dr. Sparks Disposes of Gubernatori-
al Rumor.
During the past few weeks it has
been rumored that President Sparks
would become a candidate for the
office of Governor of this State on
the Republican Party ticket at the
next election, and being directly
affected, the interest of the student
body naturally has been aroused to
know if this rumor was founded
upon facts.
‘-•An —interview - with —President
Sparks discloses the fact that he is
not a Gubernatorial candidate and
has no intention of entering the
race. He states that, in view of
his well known partisanship to
State College, he would be suspect
ed of a turn over all the
money in the State Treasury to this
institution, tnd further, that he
does not aspire to any office higher
or more useful than that which he
now holds as head of Penn State.
Whatever may have been our
hopes for bis success had the
rumor been correct, a keener sense
of satisfaction exists in knowing
that the splendid works which be
has promoted will continue to be
carried out by the mind that con
ceived them.
Experimental Results Published.
The Engineering Station has
prepared a bulletin on earth pres
sures dealing particularly with the
transmission of pressure through
sand. This bulletin is the result of
a series of experiments conducted
in the Highway Laboratory in co
operation with the State Highway
Department. Mr. Willis Whited,
Chief Bridge Engineer of the State
Highway Department, has been
much interested in these experi
ments and because of their import
ance to the Engineering Profession
will read a paper describing the
results at the next annual meeting
of the National Highway Associa
tion which will be held in Chicago.
This work was begun under the di
rection of Prof. Shattuck by J. R.
Shank in 1912 and has been con
tinued by R. B. Fehr and C. R.
Prof. J. O. Kammerman, Prof.
J. P. Calderwood and Mr. W. D.

tricals and mechanicals tested the

Winning Streak Continues When
Five Defeats Carngie Tech 50-25.
Even Contest During First Half.
Carnegie Tech proved to be an
easy rival when our boys struck
their stride last Saturday night.
The game through its early
stages, however, was one of the
hardest and fastest that has been
played this season and for a time it
seemed that we had again under
estimated the strength of our op
ponents or were over-confident of
our own,
Tech opened the game with a
foul goal closely followed by a
pretty field goal by their center.
Park and Savery placed us in the
lead by a pair of beauties and for
the rest of the half, with the excep
tion of the spurt our team took in
the last few minutes, one point
separated the scores. Hav's goal
on the heels of two successive ones
by Park gave us the comfortable
lead of 20 to 13 at the end of the
first period.
The home team had things their
own way in the following half.
Towards the end of the game State
had doubled her lead and Tech
found herself playing against an en
tirely new lineup. The individual
work of Binder, Park and Metzgar
was the feature for State while
Tumpane and Colvin proved to be
the main supports of the visitors.
The game ended 25 to 50 in our
favor. The lineup' ,

Interclass Basketball.
The juniors dropped their second
interclass contest last Friday night
when the sophomores triumphed to
the tune of 23 to 15.
The general work of both teams
showed improvement. This was
pardcularly true of the junior team.
Their team work was greatly su
perior to the exhibition given at
their former game. Standing:

Senior Dance
The second senior dance will be
held in the Armory, Thursday
night, February 12, at eight o'clock.
Programs are on sale at the Tog
gery shop and by the committee.
It seems necessary to remind
spectators not to detract from any
college affairs by their actions.
Alpha Tau Omega.
The Delphi local fraternity was
installed as the Pennsylvania Gam
ma Omega chapter of the national
organization Alpha Tau Omega last
Friday. A more detailed account
of the ceremony will appear in the
next issue of the Collegian.
