Thirty-six candidates report for
initial practise—Four of last
year’s squad out of school—
Freshman material fair—More
Last -Wednesday afternoon saw
varsity basketball prastise open in
the Armory, with a fair attend
ance. Exactly 36 men reported
for practice and handed their
names to the managers. Of this
number 4 were Seniors, 12 were
Juniors, 5 were Sophomores, and
15 were Freshmen. This is a fair
showing but no more. Basketball
is one of our only two winter
sports, letters are given for play
ing a half in two thirds of our reg
ularly scheduled games and more
men certainly must report if State
hopes to surpass or even equal
last year’s record. Last year State
won eight games, lost four and
only lost the Western championship
to W. &J.by a 21-19 score. The
first game played last year was
very significant of the necessity of
early practice and lots of it; the
team which defeated Pittsburg
twice and the star Swarthmore ag
gregation once was defeated on its
own floor by Juniata College.
Our prospects look, if anything,
brighter than they did at this time
last year. At that time the holes
left by the graduation of Capt.
Hartz, Mauthe, and Craig were to
be filled. This year we have lost
through graduation Capt. Binder
and Savery; but we have also lost
two 1915 men: Hay who went to
Yale and Thomas who came here
from Ohio State has not returned.
Billy Binder is with us as a chem
istry instructor and should be of
considerable aid in the coaching
line. Taggart of Harrisburg
looks most likely as head coach; he
has been coaching teams a long
time, and has seen a number of
years in very fast company.
Capt. Park, Jester, Metzger and
Wilson of last year’s team are still
with us and a very good team
should be built around these men
as a framework, but the managers
want it known that the necessity ot
having more men out to practice
OWe should be thankful for the fact that our country is prosperous;
for bountiful crops; for our ability to help our fellowmen desolated by
war; and because, here in our own community the course of trade
is going on with little check or difficulty.
The contrast between our condition and that of those war-shattered
towns and fields, should make us contented, cheerful over our own
better lot. You may think this has little or nothing to do with the
