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,

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

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

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

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 PRESS CLUB
Organizes With Over Thirty
Members.
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.

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,
