State College News A WEEKLY VOL. I JOURNAL No~6 N E W YORK S T A T E COLLEGE FOR TEACHERS ALBANY, N.Y., PROF. WOODARD ADDRESSES COLLEGE CLUB. 8,1916 $1.50 PER YEAR Sutherland '19 Wins Cross Country Flan Topic is "Flowers." The regular meeting of College Chi'b was held last Friday afternoon at 345. The speaker was Prof. Woodard and his topic was " Collecting Flowers." Mr. Woodard began his talk by describing his summer vacation, which he spent in traveling through Mass., Conn., New York, New Jersey, and Long Island on a .search for new varieties of flowers and plants. He was successful in obtaining some 300 specimens, some of which were shown, greatly adding to the interest of the lecture. Some dismay was evident among the audience as certain formidable Latin names weve announced, but when a strange term proved to be merely the familiar blueberry, the bewildered looks gradually vanished. Among the various specimens shown, a large num'ber were of interest because of their economic value — alfalfa, wild indigo, flax, bayberry —a plant from which the familiar bayberry candles are made — and many others. Prof. Woodward then proceeded to describe the tools used, methods of mounting and methods of classification. One of the most essential objects in Mr. Woodard's vaculuin was a lunch — chiefly composed of " clog 'biscuits." Mr. Woodard concluded his talk by advising everyone to get a hobby — something for which he worked for sheer love of the thing and not for the compensation received — even if one became like a tranmp in the attempt — one who discarded all the conventions of society which the law allows him to and forgets compensation in the delight of living a free life. " But above all," was the final advice, "go below the surface if you would find anything worth while." The speaker next week will be the Rev. Mr. Moldcnhawer. His subject will be announced later, NOVEMBER Miss Jack Wilbur and Mr. Edwyn Johnstone who will meet all students interested in dancing in the gymnasium this afternoon at 4.30. See page 3. PROF. RISLEY W R I T E S ON INTERNATIONAL LAW. Head of History Dept. Says Present Conflict is the Result of Public Opinion. Is there such a subject as International Law? asks Prof. A, W. Risley in a very interesting and illuminating article in the October issue of the Journal of the New York State Teachers' Asso. Mr. Risley answers his own question by proving in a very clear and concise manner that International Law not only still exists, but that never before was knowledge of it so widespread and appreciated, He goes very carefully into the details of his su'bject, explaining such terms and problems as Neutralization, Neutrality, Neutral Commerce, Right of Search, Contraband, Intervention, and Good Offices. This is done with the same force and vivacity with which he handles European History and when through he has made his complicated subjects as clear and fascinating as the Reign of Louis XIII in famous History II. The reason for this is that 'Mr. Risley has the faculty of saying a great deal in a very few words, as shown by the following: "The main reason why neutralization is Continued on Page 3 Establishes New Record for Course. The annual cross country run was successfully held last Friday afternoon at the scheduled time, 4.30 P. M. The race was run under fair conditions, the going being good and the weather satisfactory. A little before the appointed time nine men faced Mr. Hubbard at the start. All of the contestants were trained to the minute and presented a fine picture of health. With the crack of the pictol Sutherland took the lead in a spurt that carried him to the first turn in thirty seconds, remarkable time for so difficult a race. Dewitt Townsend followed closely behind with the rest of the men in hot pursuit. Down the hill and around the east end of the lake Townsend closed in and the quarter mile mark was passed with the Junior only a stride behind the '19 man, with Harrigan 'rQ. a good third, but apparently running under difficulties. The position of the first two had not changed as the runners passed the half mile mark, but Harrigan was here closely pressed by Cassavant and Lobdell. The latter especially was running strong and soon overtook both Cassavant and Harrigan, who was dropping back, so that at the three-quarter mile mark Lobdell was third, Cassavant fourth and Harrigan fifth. All men held these positions at the mile point near the lake house, but here Sutherland began to draw away from Townsend, in a beautiful spurt up the hill. Lobdell was coming strong, but was unable to make up the gap of a'bout fifty yards which the early sprinting of the leading pair had opened. Sutherland '19 crossed the finishing line in the very good time of 5 min. 17 1/5 sec. This is a new record for the course. Townsend '18 was second, his time being 5-33 3/5- Lobdell Continued on Page 4 FIRST FOOTBALL WORKOUT. tions and plays were illustrated in practice. In all the work-out was most profitable and many of the men learned more from that morning's work than they had ever hoped to know about football. Practice will be held as often as possible during the next two or three weeks, and every man should come out. It's a wonderful time out in the open. Among the men taking part in Saturday's work-out were Hohaus '16, Cassavant '19, D. Townsend '18, Dedicke '18, R. Townsend '18, Springman '20, Lobdell '20, Case '19, Hoffman '20, Schneider '20. Colton '20, Bliss '20. Coach Hubbard Gave Good Sized Squad Valuable Instruction. Football got its start in State College last Saturday morning when about twenty men met Coach Hubbard at Ridgefield Park to receive their first instruction in the sport. This response to the call for men is very encouraging and it is beginning to look as if a team will become a reality here. It was the first opportunity man}r of the men had to get acquainted with Mr. Hubbard, especially in a professional way, and the consensus of opinion was most favorable. The men were given instructions in the rudiments of the game and a lot of preliminary practice was indulged in, Coach Hubbard showing the men the best way in which to throw the ball for a pass, to recover a lost ball, and to boU! the ball while advancing, lie also explained the duties of each player and various posi- ORDER YOUR COLLEGE PICTURE.

Notice: Pair o' Dice Lost. Once I dreamed I went to heaven, The reason was, you see, That I passed the pearly portals For one who looked like me. And I heard a rag-time rhythm Floating to me from afar — (" Yaaka Hula Hickey Dula ") On a heavenly guitar. Not a sign of toil or textbooks From the ceiling to the floor, And in every nook I stumbled O'er a golden kuspidor. Arid I yelled in high elation; But no echo reached my car. "This is heaven," read a signboard, "And you'll find no ' E c h o ' here." So I went below to find it, Down in Pluto's dreary home; Where a skore of praktice teachers Were instructing blocks of stone. And a skore or more of kritiks Were suggesting methods new Through a haze of burning brimstone Where their notes were read and blue! There was an IT, E.

On Wednesday afternoon, with the briefest advance notice, the Press Club was organized by Professor Bastings and those students who were able to meet him at the hour assigned. Professor Hastings outlined the purpose of the club as threefold : (1) to furnish news concerning the college to the newspapers; (2) to regulate the student publications of the college through cooperation of their editors; (3) to give instruction in practical journalism to all who have an interest in writing. Many other students, who could not attend the first meeting, have expressed 'their interest and expect to join the club. Immediately after election, when the papers are less pressed for space, the club hopes to begin its work. Meanwhile Professor Hastings expects to lay the plans for organizing the means for securing college news effectively and for communicating it to the papers. He is anxious to talk with all students who wish to have a share in the venture, and is keeping special office hours for this purpose. These hours are posted on the bulletin board. GYM FROLIC G. A. A. is planning a gym frolic for Friday evening, Nov. 10th. All freshmen girls who are interested and upperclass members are invited to come and have a good time, If possible, everyone should wear her gym suit, as a frolic is a frolic you know, and you are expected to come prepared for it. The committee of arrangements consists of Ruth Moseley, Harriet Poole, Catherine Hays, and Kathryn Cole, chairman. Page Three STATE COLLEGE NEWS, NOVEMBER 8, 1916 PROF. RISELY ON INTERNATIONAL LAW Continued from Page 1 ever entered into, is protection to the guaranteeing state rather than to the guaranteed state," the "object of war is not directly to kill as many of the enemy as possible, but to establish permanent peace." Neutrals are like the servants in Moliere's comedies, with their 'backs always turned ready for a rain of blows." In speaking of the United States and disarmament, he sums up the case thus, " Surely Samson shorn would be povverIessi" His conclusion is a strong point for education and the training of public opinion. "The present conflict is the result of public opinion. No other prevention offers than the growth of public opinion. To awaken it from its perverse course, a shock is needed and the very war that is the result of public opinion will furnish the shock that . . . will make future wars impossible if anything can accomplish such a longed-for consummation." It is too bad, for the good of our country, that the money spent in the present Presidential campaign for biased political advertising, could not instead be used to place this article in the hands of every voter. As this is impossible, every student of State College should consider it his duty to give it careful study that he may be able, as a teacher, to disseminate not only the important facts it contains, but also the spirit of fairness and justice in which it is written. ALL ABOUT PRACTISE HOUSE. The work in the practise house will begin with furnishing and equipping it for living. The Senior advanced cookcry class will have full charge of the kitchen problem of furnishing and equipping, while the Junior advanced cookery class will have the complete dining room problem. This will include the linen, silver, dishes and glass ware. The sanitation class will, seu that the bedrooms are complete in every detail. The Sophomore millinery girls are planning the furnishings for the living rooms and study. The Freshmen textile class arc getting practical experience in selecting the beddings, towels and table linen, and will have the problem of floor coverings for the living and bed rooms. The advanced dressmaking class will have the problem of curtaining the house. The boys are also coming in for their share of making the house comfortable and improving its appearance. A new sink and bathroom fixtures will! be put in by them and the house will be wired for electricity. Two of the living rooms were papered last week. All classes are well started in their work so that it is expected that most of the equipment can be purchased next week, T H E ART OF THE DANCER. Along with the great interest that is being aroused all over America for the development of a higher art in Classic Dancing, comes the announcement that right in our midst Miss Jack Wilbur and Mr, Edwyn Johnstone will meet all those of the student body who like to dance, at 4.30 p. m, on Thursday, November 9th, in the college gymnasium. iMiss Wilbur and Mr. Johnstone are known to the State College in connection with the production of Shakespearian Dances last year. They also lectured on Modern Tendencies of the Social Dance and taught a Saturday Night Class in the gymnasium. It is their desire to bring before the students the immense benefit derived from the careful consideration of both the Classic and the Social Dance. The matter of the foramtion of classes to be held in the gymnasium in accordance with the schedule and private instruction will be taken up this afternoon. This is an excellent opportunity for the training of numbers for the class programs of the year, eliminating the necessity of crowding an extra lot of work in a few days before such events, There is also poise without grace and step-work without form in the Social Dance of to-day, grave errors worthy the attention of the most adept students of the art. All those who dance, as well as those who desire to dance better, will promote interest in dancing by attending the meeting this afternoon, with Miss Wilbur and Mr. Johnstone, HIE FRANKLIN SUBSCRIPTION CONCERTS Season 1916-1917 HARMANUS BLEECKER HALL The list for this season contains a number of artists who hare never appeared in Albany before, and this will add interest, particularly as all are guaranteed by the fame of the artists and by the word of the management.
