In spite of t h e somewhat onesided score the g a m e was very
interesting.
In the first half
the Crescents played an exceptionally fast game, thereby
holding the College men to
only one goal in spile of strenuous efforts on the part of the
Purple and Cold to score more.
In the second half, however,

much for their opponents, scoring five goals in quick sucees

until the final minutes of play,
and Pratt also had to work hard
for every point scored. One
bright feature of the games was
the shooting from the foul line
by S. Fitzgerald.
" Big Fitz "
scored 32 points out of a possible 40, which is a wonderful
record. Local sport scribes are
justly proclaiming him the champion foul shooter of intercollegiate basketball, and it may
be added that it would be hard

B E ON TIME.
, I t seems to have become a habit with a great man) s t u d e n t s
to be late at all .chapel exercises.
We were a m o n g several hundred students last F r i d a y m o r n i n g who were annoyed by the
late arrival of the usual trailers, who made their way into the
auditorium in some cases about ten minutes late.
T h e r e is
absolutely no excuse for such a lack of courtesy towards the other
students. Since it is required that all attend chapel, and, furthermore, since all absences are reported, a very good attendance is
generally secured.
However, since no specific demand has been
.made that every student be on time, and since late comers are
not reported, a great m a n y s t u d e n t s are habitually late.
Some
people seem to need rules and regulations to guide their every
action, and even then are quick to dodge them at every opportunity, \n this case we hope it is not too much to expect t h a t the
usual late comers will turn over a new leaf and thus forestall any
action by the proper authorities.
DON'T BE A W E E D .
W e have once before written about the m a t t e r of s t u d e n t s
removing books from the State Library. As far as we can g a t h e r
from a recent interview with Mr. Champlin, of the State Library
staff, no marked improvement has taken place. Mr. Champlin
called attention to the fact that the average s t u d e n t has only
from one to two hours to spend in the library each afternoon, and
that many loose from a q u a r t e r to a third of that time looking for
books that have either been taken nut of the building or misplaced.' Mr. Champlin believes that the n u m b e r of thoughtless
people is small and that they are the younger students. As he
expressed it to a friend the other day, " T h e y are the y o u n g e r
students, those who are between grass and hay," T o which the
friend replied, " Yes. weeds." T o which we add, " for I he sake of
your college if not for your own, don't be a weed."
LETTER TO
EDITOR.
Dear Sir. — T h e letter pertaining to the compulsory tax of ten
dollars, which appeared in last week's " N e w s , " is worthy of a
g r e a t deal of consideration, although J feel that it calls 'for an
a n s w e r in as much as the subject for discussion is perhaps not
quite clear to some of the s t u d e n t s of State College.
T h e tax of ten dollars, if the s t u d e n t body approves, will be
devoted to the very things enumerated in last week's letter, b u t
e v e r y t h i n g w a s not taken in consideration.
T h e total sum for
the " E c h o , " " College P a p e r , " and the seven home g a m e s of
basketball would be four dollars and thirty-live cents. ' But this
is not all. I t is expected that: next year will see State College
p r o d u c i n g a football team, and this as you arc aware is no small
item. T h e support of a squad of at least fifteen men, the p u r chasing of suits, the paying of g u a r a n t e e s for g a m e s , and t h e
possibility of a coach would bring the total expenditures way
above the a m o u n t collected by a five dollar tax. T h e n a g a i n ,
there are the hockey and bascbaH teams which should come in
for their share of support.
T a k i n g in consideration other colleges, such as Syracuse,
Union and institutions of our own standard, w h e r e an athelctie
tax of.-fifteen dollars is imposed, it is my idea that ten dollars,
from State College students is not an exhorbitant fee. Do not
let us make the mistake of our fathers. W h e n they planned this
great institution they had no idea that it would ever reach its
present g r o w t h , consequently we have been forced to w o r k
under handicap. Let us provide for the future!
At any rate it is encouraging to hear from some of the students;
in regard t o this proposed tax, and'wottld write more c o m m e n t
both pro and con.

MONSEIGNEUR
RILEY
GIVES LECTURE ON
LINCOLN.
Points to Lincoln as Very Religious Man.
Lincoln's Birthday was celebrated by the students of S. C.
T. by listening to a most unique
and interesting' lecture on Lincoln given by Monseigueur
Riley of St. J o h n ' s C h u r c h ,
Schenectady. T h e students in
general vote Father Riley's add r e s s one of the clearest and
most interesting treatments of
;thc life of Lincoln it has ever
been their privilege to hear.
uYfonseigneiir Riley, in beginning, said thai he wished In
give a concrete treatment of his
subject and this he did in a
Lincoln-like fashion, by story
telling. In treating of Lincoln
as a child, a lawyer. 1'residenl,
his looks or his religion, the
speaker rarely expressed his
own opinion but developed the
idea he wished by apt stories
told by Lincoln himself or his
friends and admirers.
I low could he have better
described Lincoln's personal appearance than with the follow:
ins;': " I lank Lincoln said Abe
looked pretty much like any
baby at first and he didn't ifti
prove none as he grew older."
Lincoln's tailor o n c e said, " T
don't believe that the tailor
ever lived who could lit Abe
Lincoln with a suit of clothes,
in fact his skin don't seem to
fit him."
Lincoln proves that the law
consists of but a few principles
and a mass of applications,
He
possessed but a 22 volume library, yel no one can doubt his
ability as a practitioner.
His
legal acumen and understanding of human nature is shown
by the way he handled a
country jury which he knew
was being influenced by the opposing attorney's eloquence,
When it came Lincoln's Inru to
speak he said, "T beseech you
not to hold against my friend
what he has said he can't help.
He was born that way. H e reminds me of a certain river tug
on the Ohio. T h i s was a 20
foot t u g with a 15 foot whistle.
Every time the whistle blew,
the tug stopped, and that's t h e
way with my friend.
Every
time he begins to speak h e
stops thinking."
ft was pointed out that Lincoln, in all, attended school
only six months and walked on
the average nine miles to do so.
Vet he was a master of simple,
forceful English, ft was said
of him, " He adorned a tale and
pointed a moral."
Monseigueur Riley held that
in reality Lincoln was a deeply
religious man. No other President used the name of " Cod ""
m o r e frequently, An examination of his farewell address to
his friends at Springfield and'
his emancipation proclamation
must convince one of his deep'
and abiding faith.
