VOLUME 10 NUMBER 19
Prospects are Bright for a Success
ful Season, Many State Records
The track schedule as announced
by Manager De Voe shows that
State has taken a step forward and
has won a place in a higher class of
athletics. Every meet this, year
promises to have more class than
any of last year. The dual meets
with Carlisle and Pitt will be close
ly contested. Pitt has in her fresh
man class many men of collegiate
calibre, notably McMasters who
competed in the State Inter
scolastics last year.
Each day in McAllister Hall for
five or six hours there is a con
tinuous string of men around the
track. The underclassmen has
shown a keen interest but there
might be more men out from the
In the 100 yard dash Dolbin has
made a marvelous improvement.
Under skillful coaching his form is
practically perfect. Lamb is also
receiving much attention in the
sprin's. In preparatory school he
was credited with having done
even time. These two men with
Piner and White will take ample
care of the sprints.
In the quarter mile Mason, Hunt
er, Piner and White and Brown give
promise of bettering 52 seconds.
This will make possible a new State
record for a mile relay team at the
.Penn .Relays. _ . _ '
In the half mile Leyden, Ent
wistle, Michener, Hormick and
Lewis should produce a two
mile relay which will average close
to two minutes.
The milers however show the
greatest promise. From present
indications a new intercollegiate
record will be required to defeat
our four mile relay team. Without
a single star, the team is so well
balanced that a average better than
4-30 should be reached. The most
promising men are Leyden, Ent
wistle, Horst, Schroeder, E. Davis,
Garland and Captain Keyser.
The two mile event will be well
cared for by Keyser, E. L. Hunter,
Henning, Staiger and Larer.
The promising candidates in the
other events are as follows:
Hurdles; Hammitt, Whiting,
Barron. Highjump; Elliott, Pick
ett, Brown, Smith. Broadjump;
Palmer, Hammitt, Bennett. Pole
Vault; Page, Foster, Carpenter,
Hays. Weights; Lamb and H.
The outdoor schedule follows:
April 25, Penn Relays.

decide men for the Carlisle meet.
May 16, Carlisle at Home.

The two interclass games during
the past week were the surprises of
the season. The sophomores de
feated the senior’s combination
Wednesday night in a fast hard
fought game. Both teams had
their strongest lineup and the best

away from their hoodoo through
the kindness of the freshmen. The

easily. Thus far the freshmen
have a clean slate.

already been completed. Plans for
the Mining and Chemistry buildings
are now nearing completion and as
soon as these are approved, con

• March 27—Western Trip Sched
uled for After Easter.
For their seventeentn annual pro
duction the Thespians are going to
stage a musical comedy written in
two acts entitled “The Innocents”.
It is an old Penn Mask and Wig
show with the second act entirely
reconstructed and with all new
songs. The words were written by
Warren F. Martin and the lyrics by
C. L. Downiug who has coached
the Thespian productions for the
last six years and who is again in
charge of the play.
j The show is very amusing and
consists of the story of a wealthy
old Colonel who has been disap
pointed in love six times and has
taken six sons all of the age of
twenty at the time of the play as
his adopted children. They have
never seen or heard of women and
the plot revolves around their ac
tions when they see a woman for
the first time. It affords many
comical situations and without a
doubt is one of the best produc
tion ever staged by tbe Thespians.
During the last two weeks the
cast and chorus were selected by a
careful process of elimination and
are now rehearsing for the first per
formance to be given in the Audi
torium, March 27.
The cast consists of the follow
ing: Colonel, Cort; Jack and Bob,
sons of Colonel, Welty and Bemus;
Peggy, demure debutante, Kiester;
Eifi, -soubrette, H. _£. Miller;
Peggy’s chaperone, Liebacher; avi
ator, Thatcher; lieutenant, Houtz.
The chorus will consist of Free
man, Gauthier, McEvilla, Albert,
Fleming, Wilson, Graham, Thomas
as men; Rishell, Munhall, Schan
che, Ashbrook, Kressly, Liebens
berger, Moyer and Engle, as girls.
The trip to be taken by the or
ganization the week after Easter is
made up of an entirely western tour
appearing at the following towns on
the accompanying dates: Union
town, April 13; Greensburg, April
productions this was the best that
we have ever had.

Carnegie Foundation, Dr. Shosuke
Sato, President of the Sapporo

1915 vs. Academy
The junior basketball team last
Saturday evening played the Belle
fonte Academy five on "the Y. M.
C. A. floor in Bellefonte in a game
described by local fans as the clos
est seen there in years. The out
come was never certain, but the
Academy finally managed to land
the victory, 34-28. Thomas, the
junior center, scored 24 out of his
team’s 28 points in tield and foul
Miss Marjory Lacey gave an
artistic and forceful interpretation
of that most wonderful morality
play “Everywoman”. The play
consisted of four acts, in which a
varied number of characters were
represented with great skill by Miss
Lacey. The performance proved
interesting, and the play as in
terpreted by Miss Lac.'y set forth
a lesson that could well be recived
by every man and every woman.
This performance constituted the
last of the Y. M. C. A. series, and it
was certainly apparent, that the

lacking in cast or quality and we
can readily expect an all star pro

On Friday, February 13, the Lib

cessful meeting. After a brief
business session, Mr. Owen began
the social program by a reading
Hugo.s “Les Miserables.” This
was followed by a Peinsylvania
Dutch reading by Mr. Klingbeil,
and the program was closed with a
selection from Elbert Hubbert, giv

been customary to oppoint critics

Penn State Grapplers Will Meet
Blue and Gold in First Home
Meet of the Season—Lafayette
Likely to Fill a Later Date.
The Penn State matmen will
meet Pitt on Saturday evening in
the Armory at 7.00 o'clock in the
first home wrestling meet of the
season. Thus far each team has
had one meet this season, the Blue
and White having won a great vic
tory over the Navy while the Blue
and Gold lost to Pennsylvania.
The latter team also has a victory
to her credit over Columbia so that
it is hard to dope out the strength
of the Pitt matmen from compara
tive scores. One thing is certain,
the natural rivalry existing between
the representatives from the wes
tern end of the state and the Blue
and White in athletics is bound to
make the meet on Saturday evening
an interesting one.
The regular prices of 35 cents for
reserved seats and 25 cents for gen
eral admission will be charged for
this meet. The seating plan has
been arranged to better advantage
so that almost 1400 seats are avail
able. Due to the fact that we are
for the first time hiring a coach
who is devoting all his time to the
team it is necessary that we get the
support of the whole student body.
The tickets will be on sale at the
Toggery on Thursday and Friday
evenings from 6:30 to 9:00 o’clock
and on Saturday afternoon from
2:30 until time for the meet to start.
No tickets will be sold at .the door
on the night of the meet and you
will help yourself as well as the
management if you secure your
Lafayette canceled her engage
ment for a meet here last Saturday
at such a late date that it was im
possible to secure any other attrac
tion. The cause seems to have
arisen from a misunderstanding be
tween the management and the
faculty, for the latter refused to
grant leave of absence to the team
after apparently all arrangements
had been perfected for the meet.
The Lafayette athletic authorities
have shown the proper attitude to
ward remedying the affair by ask
ing if it is not possible to arrange a
later date. An attempt will be
made to do this and it is hoped
that we will yet be able to see the
opening of aihletic relations with
Lafayette on the mats in the near
The local lineup for Saturday’s
meet with Pitt will be: Bantam
