State College News NEW YORK S T A T E COLLEGE FOR TEACHERS EsTAMUSHKI) IIV TUB O.A89 OP 1918 VOL. II No. 21 DR. RICHARDSON DELIVERS FIRST DEMOCRACY LECTURE Tin; faculty lecture scries began Friday when Dr. Leonard VV, Richardson spoke on "Democracy and the Individual," ft seems particularly fitting that the first lecture should be given by the most revered professor on the faculty. I lis innate love for truth, learning, and the principles for which a true scholar lives, make his words more forcible willi such a background to strengthen them. Dr. Richardson traced the growth of democracy in England, and the greater improvement on America's inheritance, discussing the comparison of government in the two countries, In speaking of ways of manifestation of the democratic spirit, \)r. Richardson said thai America was not sympathetic with an established church but believed in the right of private judgment. The attempt to interpret the visible world in its relation to man is distinctly democratic, A third manifestation is the American habit of free inquiry, The speaker stated that there is no conflict between science and religion and that this belief will be strengthened by the awakening that is to come, "We ITIIISI meet the emergencies of the present as the cmergicncics were met in the past," said Dr. Richardson. "We must bear the brunt of purest war, It is a rase of civilization versus barbarism, liberty versus despotism. Will we permit the spirit of Germany to prevail or shall we do what we can to make the world safe for democracy—by paying the price." COLLEGE HAS NEW REGISTRAR Miss Alice L. Jewett Fills Vacancy Left by the Retirement of Miss Edith Bodley Miss Alice L. Jewett, a graduate of Mount llolyoke 'oo, has been made Registrar since the retirement of Miss Edith Bodley. Miss Jewett did library work during her undergraduate days and after graduation became librarian in the Pittsburgh Carnegie 'Library, After three years of this work she entered the New York Slate Library School to take special studies in a two-years course. Since, she has had charge of the Exchange Department until taking up the new duties here at State College. Our former registrar, Miss Edith Bodley, retired from active, service the first part of February. The students who know this unusual woman will fully- agree with Dr. Brubacher's sentiments: " Miss Bodley has retired after thirty-two years of loyal and faithful service to the college, Probably no one is so well and kindly remerbered by the students Who have passed through the institution between 1885-1017, She was a friend to everyone and had the interests ol the students and the college at heart."
