State College News NEW VORK. S T A T E COLLEGE FOR ESTABLISHED VOL. II No. 19 RECITAL OF WAR POETRY Dr. Thompson, Assisted by Mrs. James Taafe, Entertains Promethean One of tlic most enjoyable as well as profitable evenings ever spent by tlie society, was at its last meeting, Thursday evening of last week. The entire program .was in charge of Dr. 11 arotd Thompson, of the English department, assisted by Mrs. James Taafe, alto soloist at the First Presbyterian church, The subject ol the evening was " War Poetry." President Margaret Shcvlin presided at the meeting. After announcing that the next meeting of Promethean would occur on March seventh, and that election of officers for the second semester would take place at that time, she introduced Dr. Thompson. By' way of introduction, Dr. Thompson said that he did not intend to present a lecture, but rather wished to present a few examples of the different types of poetry that the war has brought out among the Allies. As a keynote to the whole program, Dr. Thompson read Galsworthy's " Courage." Next followed type poems representing the spirit of each of the countries on. this same subject. England was best represented by Kipling, whose poetry first gave us the word " l i n n " in its present usage, Dr. Einley's poem, " The Red Cross Spirit Speaks," is an excellent illustration of the American spirit. After this was read, Mrs. Taafe sang the selection, as set to music by Horatio Parker of Yale, Two French poems, " Vive L'Francc" and "The Soul of Joan D'Arc," were next read. The latter expresses the spirit woman has shown throughout the war. To further illustrate this point, Mrs. Taafe Y. BY TUB CLASS O F TEACHERS 1918 ALBANY, N. Y., FEBRUARY 27, Professor Risley Addresses Student Body Tries Interesting Historical Experiment—William The Second's Verdun Address On Friday morning, February 22d, Student Assembly was opened by Doctor Brubacher. "America " was sung. Doctor Brubacher then introduced Professor A. W. Risley, who had been fittingly chosen to speak to the student body at the joint commemoration of Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays, Professor Risley's subject was "Made in America." He pleaded for the celebration of all national holidays, and urged especially the study of Lincoln's Gettysburg address each 12th of February. fie declared that a new emphasis on our Revolution could be gained from the present experience of Russia with Bolshcviki. He styled Washington " a very prosperous looking gentleman," saying, " I t is a part of our valuable inheritance (hat our Revolution was not left to the lower classes, that a prosperous looking gentleman with other prosperous ones like Alexander Hamilton, were our leaders. We had our Bolsheviki, soap box orators, radicals desiring a change, little matter what sort, the populistic element, but these were not the class of men to whom we entrusted the task of forming an enduring government. Let us be proud of the things we have, no longer minimizing the dignity, conservatism and solid information of a Washington, nor the constructive financial genius of a Hamilton." Mr. Risley then tried the historical experiment of placing Continued on page 4 words of William the Second in Washington's mouth, with the effect of bringing into bold relief PUBLIC LECTURES the difference between the two men.

" Viewing the present emphasis on the personality of rulers, who shall say that with a man of the dictator stamp in the highest office, with a military personage leading a disaffected army, the whole background of the Revolution might not have been disregarded? It staggers the imagination to think of Washington as the forerunner of Napoleon Bonaparte and of William Hohonzollcrn, so different from them was his whole character. Let us glory in our possession as a national heritage of the memory of the plain, country gentleman, who longed for his estates even while in office, and who rejoiced to go back to his farm, his horses, his dogs, as soon as release from office came. "A slight view of history as it was not makes us glad that our Father of his Country was neither a radical nor a 'royalist." Mr. Risley then regarded Lincoln in the light of present developments, saying that Lincoln's attitude toward Seward's early advice now assumes a wholly new aspect. " Seward urged Lincoln to make foreign war as a cure for internal dissension, a policy in favor with foreign rulers from Frederick the Great through Bismarck, to William the Second. But apparently this is not the kind of policy made in America, for Lincoln never gave it a second thought. The sole recourse of Germany was totally foreign to Lincoln's character and to American genius." The Gettysburg Address was lauded for its universality, its special application to democracy today — particularly • as Lincoln spoke in the closing sentence, "That this government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth." Mr. Risley, then, by a daring paraphrase of the address emphasized Lincoln's patriotism. "Let us imagine that the Kaiser is delivering an address at the battlefield of Verdun, spoken with his customary bombast, irreverence, and lack of respect for popular government, It would have been a physical and psychological impossibility for him to have thought out one line of an address of the sort Lincoln gave. Lincoln's was made in America. " On . such an occasion as we have imagined, William the Second might have spoken thus: 'Twoscore and eight years ago, my ancestors brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in autocracy and dedicated to the proposition that I am it. Now we are engaged in a great illegal war, testContinued on page 4 PER YEAR PRATT WINS FROM STATE Purple and Gold Five Suffers 34 to 25 Defeat in Hard Fought Game Superior passwork and shooting enabled the Pratt Institute quintet to defeat the defenders of State College in the Albany High School gymnasium, Saturday last. Pratt's victory was a spectacular one, four of their field baskets being made from midcourt. The contest was one of the best ever seen on the High School court, and although the home team went down to defeat it was not until it had put up the hardest kind of a fight and displayed a good brand of basketball. The First Half Pratt was the first to score, Captain Van Leyen scoring; from the foul line within a minute after the whistle blew. Fitelson soon followed witli a field basket, and " Little " Fitz made the first score for State College by dropping one in from the foul line. Both teams added to their score by baskets from the penalty line, With the score 8-3 against State, Fitz came through with three more points from the foul line. The Brooklyn boys then cut loose and scored six field baskets from different parts of the court. Barry scored from midcourt and Fitz soon followed with three more counters from the foul line, Fitz gave a Continued on page 3 VARSITY GOES ON NEW YORK TRIP THIS WEEK Purple and Gold to Play Manhattan, Pratt and Stevens Manager Sutherland will take his basketball warriors on their New York trip this week. The boys will leave Albany early Thursday noon, and play Manhattan in New York Thursday night. Coach Maroney predicts a victory over Manhattan, because the Manhattan-State College game played _ here was won by only a two-point margin. Coach Maroney deserves great credit for the big improvement in the team since the beginning of the season. He has worked wonders with the available material at the College. Speaking of the matter recently, he said, "They arc the best bunch of fellows I ever handled. They're always fighting and ready to take any suggestions, and that counts a whole lot." Friday night will find the State College defenders lined up against Pratt Institute. Previous to their northern trip, the Pratt five had won nine straight games. Captain Fitz and his men will clash with Stevens Institute Saturday night. The Hoboken quintet have been meeting with great success this season, having won eleven straight games. The trip will certainly be a trying one, as three games in a row is_ hard for any team. However, if the team keeps up the record of its recent northern trip, the best record made of all trips taken, the time and effort will have been well spent.

Our Democracy, as championed by President Wilson, has been accepted as a worthy ideal by England, France and Italy; and Russia is even now groping about in the darkness of .revolutionary chaos after this same Democracy, Even Germany comes forward with a claim that she too has heard of Democracy and even insists that she has made it part of her system. The world is fighting for Democracy. But what is Democracy? Can an ifjeal of government embrace such diversity of forms as are represented by the Allies' governments? The lectures on Democracy by the State College faculty will try to answer some of the questions that promptly arise when we think of Democracy. The speakers will try to interpret the various phases of the subject, and will surely stimulate our thinking on this momentous matter. rather for us to he here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored words you take increased devotion to that task for which I have not yet given the last full measure of words; that you here highly resolve that I shall not have spoken in vain; that this nation, under ME, shall have a new birth of autocracy; and that government of the Hohenzollcrns, by the Hohenzollcrns, and for the Potsdam gang, shall not perish from the earth.' " Let us thank God at least twice a year for the blessing of living in a country whose heroes are Washington and Lincoln, not Frederick the Great and Bismarck." Mr. Risley then spoke of the difficulty of Woodrow Wilson's present task, "Washington's problem was to make a nation free, Lincoln's to keep a nation intact, But Wilson must preserve a nation from a foreign foe, and so manage its internal affairs that we may be leaders of foreign thought as we always have been." Mr. Risley deplored the wholesale optimism into which so many of. us have been lulled, and urged that we "fight the kind of fighting that is made in America." In closing, Mr. Risley suggested that each of us, as he or she enters our college building, shall salute the flag that was made in America. "The stars in that flag stand for our undivided country, the red for the blood shed by the boys of yesterday and today, the white for the purity of our purpose, the blue for the souls of men like the valiant Washington and the martyred Lincoln."

We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for cannon fodder. It is altogether fitting and proper that I should say this. " ' But, in a larger sense, they cannot dedicate, they cannot consecrate, they cannot hallow • this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have , consecrated it far less than our J great power will do. The world will little note nor long remember what they did here, but let it dare to forget what I say here.
