Daily Collegian Challenges Winner
OF Penn-Cornell Touch Football Fray
An undefeated, untied, unseor
ed upon, and wholly imaginary
Big Red team will engage in dubi
ous battle with an equally well
trained Quaker outfit this Satur
day afternoon on Franklin Field.
The Cornell Sun has answered the
challenge of the dauntless publi
cation, The Pennsylvanian, to come
to grips in the grueling game of
touch football.
Eager to maintain its position of
dominence in collegiate newspap
er circles and desirous of continu
ing its glorious traditions, The
Daily Collegian has taken precar
ious measures to protect its un
marred escutcheon. (Shield to the
boys from Ithaca.) The Penn State
publication has challenged the
Cornell Daily Sun and the Daily
Pennsylvanian. The two-bit circuit
has now become the Big Three.
The honorable gentlemen of the
pre s (we'll molder the °bums)
from Ithaca and Philadelphia are
scheduled _to engage in their
knockdown, do-or-die, chaw-em,
up, rootin', tootin', ephemeral
contest prior-go their varsity clash
on Saturday. The *swash-buckling
junior board and simple sopho
mores .of The Collegian offer- 'to
meet the victor of this contest on
New Year's Day ifanyone can be
persuaded to show up. '
The Sun feels confident of vic

Popenoe Advises
Mature Marriage
"People should be physically,
mentally, and intellectually matur
ed before they marry," Dr. Paul
Popenoe, general director of Fam
ily Relations Institute, Los An
geles, California advised in an ad
dress before 900 students and
townspeople in Schwab Auditor
ium last night.
Dr. Popenoe pointed out that the
stage of adult maturity is reached
when a person gets to love other
people besides himself. According
to Dr. Popenoe, there are many
people who never reach this neces
sary point and therefore cannot
hope to make a success of maul
age. The worst offenders, he said,
are those who have been tied to
their mother's apron strings since
early childhood.
"Too many young men and wo
men think that marriage is a
child's game,"- warned Dr. Pop
enoe. "Marriage in reality is a
proposition which demands sacri
fice, compromise, and complete
understanding of the partner's
point of view."
Dr. Popenoe advised young peo
ple to get interested in community
affairs such as church work, clubs,
and boy and girl scout organiza
tion. He states that statistics prov
ed that aggressive personalities
tended to make better matrimonial
"There is an inadequate pro
gram of social life present in over
50 per cent of our schools and
colleges," said Dr. Popenod. "This.
is an unhealthy condition." He
went on to say that it is the res
ponsibility of the more fortunate
ones to provide activities in which
all would have .Rn opportunity to
advance their social and emotional

MI Mopll* Paper
Describes School
The current issue of "Mineral
Industries," published by the
School of Mineral Industries and
issued this week, includes a com
plete survey of the School, with ar
ticles, pictures, arid drawings ex
plaining every aspect of the
School's activities.
This issue is the result of careful
study, and it is believed that no
other school has ever undertaken a
similar project. • •
A double spread on the center
pages of the 8-page edition is de
voted to drawings of the floor plans
of the MI Building, including the
new wing.
The whole edition is given over
to articles explaining the trends
and objectives of the School. An
editorial .by Dean Edward Steidle
stresses the.unity of the Common
wealth, mineral industries, and the
College in building a "program of
instruction and research for the
benefit of its citizens."
"Credit for this union," Dean
Steidle's editorial continues, "is
due to those industries which, des
pite the depression years, contri
buted laboratory equipment and
thousands of dollars for research,
and' to State and College officials
who recognized the need for a
Mineral Industries School on Penn
State's campus.
Other articles describe resident
instruction, fields of work, exten
sion work,"enrollment, and mineral
industries research.

Discussion Tonight
Slightly Warmer.
Preceding the rally, students
and cheerleaders, led by the Blue
Band, will form at 7 p. m. at the
Corner Room for a parade through
town, which will terminate at the
grounds. The route of the parade
is: south on Allen to Beaver; east
on Beaver to Locust Lane; north
on Locust Lane to College Ave
nue; east on College to Shortlidge
Road; thence to the fire.
At the fire, the students will be
led in songs and cheers, the guests
of honor will be introduced, and
the speakers will give short com
ments. At the height of the rally,
the huge effigy of the Pitt Panther
will be offered to the hungry flame
of the bonfire—Penn State spirit.
Fraternity men are asked to co
operate by having their freshmen
paint and carry "Beat Pitt,"
"Down with the Panther," and
other slogans and banners.
The five hat societies will be
present to keep in order the en
larging parade as it adds spirited
students to its ranks: They will
also keep the rally in order.
The "Beat Pitt" signs worn by
the freshmen are of good omen
for the State team. in the past
three years, the "Beat Somebody"
signs have been worn by the
freshmen for seven events, and
State has won all of them.
The committee in charge of the
bonfire and rally tonight as ap
pointed at the All-College Cabinet
meetings Tuesday includes George
L. Parrish '4l (chairman), Mar
